And for those of you who are still waiting on your first acceptance, WE GOT THIS! >:D
As someone with a lower gpa (3.56), I’m wondering if there’s any data on that. Any rejections or waitlists??? I think all this information is valuable and could be turned into something positive if anyone is willing to share. Unfortunately, I haven’t applied to a school yet and won’t be able to until January when I get my first lsat score...(so I can’t share anything -_- ), but I want to know for what schools I should be extra careful with in terms of the components of my application. I’m retaking the lsat in february, and I’m still working on “Why X”, diversity statement and personal statement essays.
What do you think made your application weaker or what did it lack? I’m planning to apply to Loyola Los Angeles, UCLA, USC, Michigan, UVA, UC Berkeley and WUSTL
If you’d be more comfortable just pm’ing me, please do!
So far I've been waitlisted at GW and Iowa. I worked very hard on my PS, DS, and supplemental essays—I think everyone does. I'm not sure people on here would submit "weak" essays. However, if I have to say something was weak or lacking, it's my LSAT, a 164, or my GPA, 3.4. As the mantra on TLS goes, retake until you get a score that meets or exceeds your potential/desired goals. I will also probably retake in February or June.
