I applied to 13-- only three of which I didn't have few waivers for. Probably would have done 8 without those waivers.

3 plus a hail mary to Yale

Then I got nervous about a month later and threw 2 apps to schools I had no intention of ever attending, just in case. I forgot about both until I got accepted and I declined within a few hours each time (sorry for fucking up your yield ratios)

2 that I would actually attend. 4 more that I applied to before finding TLS and realized that attending any of the our would be akin to career suicide.

So six.

Applying to 8, including the super reaches to HYS (you won't score unless you shoot ;)).

I'm going to retake in December, and see if I can improve my chances.

Plan to be 12 atm.

UT + HYS + Those I got fee waivers from in T14 - Georgetown. Don't want to do some bullshit interview for a school I'm not going to for $21.


Might not apply to UT because they didn't give me a fee waiver. But that in-state residency...sigh.

As a 0L: 29 -- All with LSAC fee waivers. The first 4 had the reporting fee waived too. :)

As a transfer: 10 -- All except 1 was an LSAC fee waiver (which, surprisingly, was the one I accepted)

11, 2 of them I paid the app fee for. Not opposed to sending out more depending on how my cycle goes and how I do on the December re-take.
