This post was so insightful I had to read it again and share it with friends who are considering law school.

Wow... thank you it's very rare to hear an answer that cuts to the bone of the question I'm starting to feel more prepared already  8).

How many people feel they fared at the top of there class? Was it hard or managable? What would you do different?

Thanks to everyone for all the advice it has been helpful. I do intend to apply everywhere, I mean what's the worst that can happen I get rejected right. I'm  even thinking about applying to schools outside of nyc even though certain schools may be counterproductive since I want to practice in nyc only  but what the hell, I'm not trying to limit myself ya know.

Does anyone know how the application fee wavier works? I know that certain schools require a lsac wavier to even been considered but is there anyway to get around that?

Before I came out I had boyfriends and had pleasurable expierences only when I imagined my partner was a woman by the time I came out (17) I signed up for the real thing and never thought twice about looking back.

Thanks for all the advice guys it's extremely helpful.

My grades started out like crap I really BS my first couple of semesters then I got serious and turned it around so there is a definite upward trend. My actually GPA is a 3.39 but however lsdas calculates it,  they report it as a 3.0. They do note however Academic Honors if that helps.I worked 40 hours a week the entire time I was in school all through grad school. Paid for both my brothers to go to private schools. My  grad degree is in Political Science (3.5) and I have a lot of community service under my belt.

3.3 (lsdas 3.0) undergrad

I'm only considering nyc schools. Anyone with similiar stats get into columbia,nyu with even a little bit of money?

I think my chances with fordham, cardozo,brooklyn and st.johns are solid.
