I'm applying ED to Michigan. Any advice you might be able to provide specifically regarding my stats as a "splitter" (low LSAT, high GPA)...? I wrote the one supplemental essay explaining my LSAT, indicating how my other qualifications are more predictive of my potential.
I have been dreaming of going to U of M Law forever it seems like and the LSAT score I received yesterday was really discouraging, but I'm not giving up. Do you think the AdCom would ever consider outstanding essays, academic record, and LOR to outweigh a lower than average LSAT? Anything I can do to improve my odds?
MHLM - what are your numbers like. Sounds like we're in a similar situation. Michigan has been my top choice since beginning this journey and after receiveing my Sept LSAT score, it seems a little less attainable. Plus, I was really hoping for some $$$ offers...unlikely with 3.96/168, unless the FAFSA gives me some good need-based mojo.
OP - do you know anything about the Darrow? What criteria/cut-off do they use for inviting people to apply? Any other scoop on financial aid at Michigan?
