What can I expect?

Postby agoldst426 » Wed Oct 06, 2010 4:26 pm

GPA- 3.58 from a top public university
LSAT- 167
Addendum- Last 3 semesters I've gotten a 4.0
I've held 2 internships
Volunteer Hours, etc.

I've submitted applications to:
GWU (ED)
Fordham
Cornell
WUSTL
Hofstra
UConn
UMinn
W&L
W&M
Cardozo
American

Can I expect money from anywhere? I'm presuming either WL or Rejected from Cornell but I wanted to try.

That addendum seems odd. Also GW seems like a waste of an ED considering it's tougher than their RD.

I was sick the end of my freshman year and didn't perform as well as I wanted to. So, I wrote an addendum explaining that and how it has effected my GPA and to point out the upward trend.

I seriously doubt that the GPA addendum will help you. You're probably in everywhere but Cornell and GW. WUSTL will give you monies.

You really think WUSTL will give him monies? He's in between the 25-75 for GPA and LSAT...??

I really think so. It won't necessarily be a ton of monies ($30k seems to be a common number), but 167/3.58 last year got $111k from WUSTL: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/tcantu/jd

WUSTL is a whore for LSATs at 167 or above.
