Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Anybody Hear from SMU PT?
« on: March 17, 2009, 06:14:07 PM »
SMU 1L drop-out here... If anyone wants to buy my Section 1 books, email me.

SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME! I need some kind of encouraging advice. I'm begging for someone to make me feel better.

I have a 3.9 at a well respected state school in Texas. I'm smart, hard working, and have no doubt I will succeed in law school. Oh yeah...except I completely MESSED UP the October test!!! I made a..cringe...156. I was scoring 163 - 167 on PTS. Am I screwed? Did this score just completely trump 4 years of hard academic work? I'm absolute wreck and I'm GOING CRAZY!! I have high expectations for myself and I feel as if I ruined them all....I'm obviously retaking it but I'm scared shitless.

I'm at SMU now (1L). My friend got a 3.9 from UTD with a 157 and got into SMU FT-day. (not a minority... no impressive work experience)... it's all a crap-shoot. Good luck!

I'm considering leaving law school. I realize that nobody can make this decision for me... which is why I won't dump all the details on this board seeking advice. Instead, I'd like to know if others were in the same situation, and what was the moment when you were sure that you wanted to leave? Are you glad you did? And logistically, does it make more sense to finish the semester or leave now? (My success has nothing to do with my choice, so knowing my grades is not a factor). Thanks.

still looking for a roommate... (and, I'm looking to buy a condo now, not rent an apartment, so rooming will be marginally cooler now) :-)

Not sure anyone on here really cares, but since I've had both on and off-board discussions with several of you regarding the pros/cons of Tulane I just wanted to say thank you for everything, but I will not be heading to NOLA in the fall... because I got accepted to SMU!!!

Best of luck to everyone!

(See- a sub-160 LSAT isn't a death sentence... I'm doing alright).

lol... yeh... after I posted that I called my friend who said the same thing. I'm not going to worry about it. Once SMU confirms my seat deposit is in, I'll withdraw elsewhere.

I was just accepted on the 24th by voicemail (which I didn't get until the 27th because I was in Puerto Vallarta). Talk about a great welcome home gift!

But-- now I'm concerned about this more deposits than seats thing (I'm mailing mine today). If more people do not withdraw, is it possible that they'll have to revoke acceptances to the class or will they just expand their capacity? Is it a good idea for me to then NOT withdraw from my second choice in case SMU pulls my acceptance?

Anybody looking for a roommate? I'm 27 and have a cat. (I also have a Washer/Dryer, couches, etc. PM me if interested.  :D

SMU, where ARE you? My rent is going to the month-to-month rate of $950 starting May 1st!!! If I'm going to be staying in Dallas I'd REALLY like to know so I can re-sign my lease at a much cheaper rate or get the heck outta there...

Don't take this as gospel, but I think the school is anticipating its last round of admission decisions after this Friday's Admitted Student's Day. By then, the school should have a better idea of who will actually attend, but it will be contingent on the outstanding offers. I'm not sure when the next deposit deadline is due, but that should be the time when you will hear something (hopefully not a wait list, I know how much those suck).

I hope you're right on this... I'll be on vacation tomorrow thru the 27th and it'd be great if I came home to some good news~!
