I know it's a festering TTT in decline but I am going and I figure there have to be more of you out there. So, here's a thread for all those decided on living the next three years in South Bend.

The silence is killing me, mainly because they have their whole 6-8 weeks thing. I've been complete for eight and a half weeks (OK, so I'm jumping the gun) and not heard a single thing. I guess I'm mainly wondering if anyone has been received anything (A,WL,R) in the past couple weeks.
All my apps are sent in and with every day that passes I become more and more convinced I will get rejected from practically everywhere. I think this is a somewhat natural feeling but it is only made worse by the fact that I don't have a lost of hardcore safeties. I always consider applying to a couple more schools but then I realize that I'm not scared of getting rejected everywhere, but of getting rejected everywhere I want to go. Anybody else ffffreeeaaking out?
I'm a little confused about how schools acknowledge receiving your app, along with its changing status. Do some schools just not correspond until you get a decision (if this is the case I will obviously make contact with them myself).

Does anyone have any experience/knowledge about this? In my case I have two transcripts from abroad that don't go towards my GPA. LSAC will send out my file but they have said it is up to the schools whether or not they want to consider me complete.
Wow. Apparently I am an idiot because I just discovered that some of the schools I am applying to have their own sheets for letters of recommendations. Am I screwed b/c I didn't give all these to my recommenders or are they optional if submitting general LORs?
LSAC says they have received my transcript from my undergrad institution but that they have no transcripts from my time abroad (a summer and a semester). The lady at my undergrad told me that the abroad transcripts are included with my undergrad transcript. My question is this; Can I go complete without ever turning in the abroad transcripts (they're not counted in my cum. GPA)?
my reason is that I simply lost focus for a few semesters? Came to college focused on grades and law school, got a couple of 4.0s (not ridiculously easy classes), broke up with the high school girlfriend (wah wah I know), joined a fraternity and got sub 3.0 gpas for three semesters. Then realized I didn't want to suck at life forever and got a 3.8 and 3.25 (not great but combined with the first two semesters and the 3.8 I think shows that there was something going on with the sub 3.0s). Anyway let me know your opinion. I think combined with a 171 LSAT they will see that I am smart enough but question my work ethic and I'd at least like them to see that it was a phase rather than a difficult academic struggle or four years of neglect.
How substantial of a difference is there thought to be? I know that UT doesn't take many out of staters but I'm not sure what exactly that means in terms of in state applicants. I'm a 3.37, 166, Spanish/poli sci./international studies in stater who studied abroad a couple times. Just worried that I've got reject written all over my app. before I've even sent it.
I got a 166 on the June LSAT and my gpa is a 3.37. I would have been happy with 168+ but I'm thinking 166 might warrant a second go at it(I never perfected games and I missed seven on reading comp in June with a minus 2 practice average on those sections.) I would like to have a realistic chance at a couple T14s but after that Texas would also make me quite happy (I'll have in state.) So what say you? Retake and risk a possible one or two point improvement or be happy and start writing a badass personal statement.
