Choosing the Right Law School / Re: what has happened to UNC?

When I say package I mean the formal admissions packet.  I am not sure of what that consists, so I termed it a package.  It simply could be a thin envelope with one sheet of paper in it for all I know.

Well they sent me one.  Also said I would be receiving a package in the mail soon.

I just received an email notifying me I was admitted to UNC.  Went complete on Jan 6 and the admit email was sent Feb 8.  I am out of state as well, so hopefully some of you will start to hear from them soon.  Best of luck.

Thanks for the replies.  I feel a little better about my list now.  Still, I may go ahead and apply to UGA since I want to work in the south and that is my wife's almamater.

Choosing the Right Law School / What are my chances???
« on: January 17, 2006, 12:22:19 AM »
I have a 3.91 GPA and scored an average of 168 on the LSAT (163 in OCt and 172 in Dec).  I wrote an addendum explaining the reason for the divergent LSAT scores (my wife was plowed by a Honda CRV three weeks prior to the Oct LSAT...while walking down the sidewalk!!!).  I am in my early thirties, have prior military service, and worked an average of 30 hours a week during the last three years of undergraduate (this was in addition to a ninety minute round trip commute each day).  I also have my MS in Teacher Education.  The bad news is that my ECs are fairly weak, mainly due to the hours I worked as an undergrad.  I have applied to the following schools:

Harvard
Virginia
Michigan
Duke
Vanderbilt
UNC - Chapel Hill
Washington & Lee
Wake Forest

I am concerned that I need to apply to more schools.  I am considering Emory, Georgia, and Tennessee.  What are my chances at the 8 I have applied to?  Should I consider adding a safety school or two?  Thanks for any replies.

Best Regards,

AllThatJazz
