So. I finally got my score back and I am elated. Could not have done anywhere near that well without all the awesome people on TLS who offered advice and encouragement. Anyone want to speculate on my chances/ where I should apply?
I think I'm looking for $$$ over prestige, though if i got in at HYS I would probably seriously consider the opportunity (I'm international so I'm not sure if they hook you up with the same kind of aid/loans). Definitely interested in Chicago, Michigan and Duke. Any others in the T14 I should target that might give out a juicy scholarship? Still trying to decide between Canada and the States, money is the real issue for me (already been thinking about where I want to practice).
There are a couple of issues with my app though. I was arrested for a break and enter when I was 15 but it went through deferred adjudication (not as bad as it sounds - we were just found inside a school building after hours - no damage or vandalism etc.). I've also bounced around to multiple universities during my undergrad career (attended 3, the first I only ever intended to complete the first year program and transfer, 2nd transfer was for personal reasons). Also have only taken 80% course load for the last few years. Will this mess me up too badly?
Decent softs - lots of research work in biology and ecology (no pubs though). various volunteer stuff. Work experience in a high risk and high intensity workplace.
Hoping to do PI. No real interest in Biglaw. Would love to hear what people think.
Not sure where your numbers will get you? Dying to know where you stand? Come have your palms read by your fellow posters!
