How is this happening to you? We're in the same scoreband/grid and I have 7 acceptances with 6 scholarships. I just don't get it. Where else did you apply? Goodluck and hopefully it will look up for your birthday.

Oh, you just haven't heard from the schools that will accept you yet. Surely Widener, Barry, Jefferson, OK City and probably Albany based on my knowledge will accept you. I haven't gotten any good news yet either; we just have to hang in there. :)
Attending: Widener PA!!

Widener let me know I was accepted when I visited, but they still haven't sent out any letters/email of acceptance that I know of.  You should get accepted there, at least.  Maybe something will come this week.   ;)

I was JUST up at OK City U this past week. They're holding most decisions until after the 2/1 deadline. Also, DEFINITELY take the time and energy to fill out the Hatton-Sumners scholarship forms. They're based on more than numbers, and the program itself is a sweet deal: full tution, books, fees, living stipend, mentorship w/ a state supreme court judge, and monthly dinners on the house for you and a guest. I just think the last bit's cute. ;) Also keep in mind that although OKCU is T4, the entire state only has 3 law schools and the highest ranked is still T2 (OU). The students I met who were graduating this year were all Hatton-Sumners scholars and most had jobs lined up. The one student I was paired with had a six-figure position lined up already, and she's graduating debt-free! Another benefit if you do qualify for Hatton-Sumners is that the program is also at Southern Methodist U., a T1 in Dallas, and the schools share reciprocity in job placement while Hatton-Sumners is a program that is recognized in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area as being prestigious. Good luck!

Sorry to hear your bad news. Good luck with the other schools, your list seems pretty good, so hang in there! :)
