I'm planning on sending an updated resume and loci next week to schools that are pending and waitlists for me. Would gladly accept any advice.

Does anyone have first hand knowledge of deferring a year or asking to deferrer? I have a really unique job oppurtunity that I can only take if I put of school for a year. Also does anyone know anything in general about how willing schools are to deferrer scholarships? Thanks.

I got accepted to SMU with a 3.47 GPA and a 156 LSAT which is below their 25th percentile. I'm almost positive that I won't be seeing any grants/scholarships, so the acceptance is pretty much just a pat on the back.
Thats pretty great, Im applying to SMU and havent heard yet. Did u have absurd softs or something really unique in your essay?

Schools know that the GPA/LSAT evaluation is far far from perfect. Being able to prove yourself in Law school often goes a longer way in their eyes than the index number.
Yeah you have to be in the top 20% of your class to transfer to a higher tier. That being said its not like its some sort of wet dream to accomplish that, a class HAS to have a top 20%, so why not you? Also the lower end schools will have a greater proportion of students that cant handle Law school and a larger attrition rate, which obviously isn't going to hurt your chances.

They also may have stopped checking and updating after being accepted to their first choice school or making some decision about where they are going. Just a thought...
good point, makes me more hopeful
