Denials / ring a ling, here comes the Ding- U St. Thomas (MN)
« on: January 14, 2005, 09:59:57 PM »
Rejected today- 3.34/145/URM.

Meh, its ok, they were only provisionally accredited and the app was free to apply... :-\

At this point in the game, I'm probably going to re-take the LSAT in June and see what happens then.

Where should I go next fall? / Arkansas-Fayetteville
« on: January 10, 2005, 10:28:25 PM »
I got a thick envelope today from Arkansas-Fayetteville saying that I dont qualify for their index admission, but for me to send them a personal statement, resume, and why I want to go to their school for further consideration.

Is this like being deferred?  Has anyone else received this?

I'm definitely dont have the scores for a tier 1 or 2 school, so this came as a shock. I thought that I would be an auto-reject, but apparently not.

Does this sound like I have a chance?

LSAC and LSDAS / Majors on Transcript
« on: November 09, 2004, 10:27:19 PM »
When I sent in my transcript to be processed it only said that my major was Sociology. (My dumb academic advisor hadnt added my second major into the system yet and I didnt know until it was processed a few weeks ago.) 

So on my applications, would it be a lie to say that I have 2 majors now that it has been fixed officially by my university and I will graduate with a BA and a BS?  Or should I just list Sociology like it says on my LSAC summary?

Law School Rankings / Univ of St Thomas Law
« on: October 16, 2004, 09:33:22 PM »
I went to a forum today and received info from the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  I looked at the US News site and I can't find what tier they are in.  Does anyone know?
And does anyone know about the school in general? I had never heard of it.
I talked to the rep. at the forum and liked what she had to say and I plan on applying since it's free for online.

Thanks.  :)

Where should I go next fall? / Help! Should I aim higher? (or lower)
« on: September 03, 2004, 06:32:06 PM »
Hi. I just joined this board but I've been reading for a while now.

I've been looking at sites about your perenctage of getting into certain schools. But being a black female I know that the odds of me getting into certain schools are better than for other people. Does anyone know how much this can help me?
I don't know anyone else who is applying to law school so I'm wondering if I'm aiming too low for schools (or even too high??).  Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
