I like this under 25% question. That is most likely where I will be after Feb07. Without a doubt under 50% anyway. UNC is my reach and I am gonna need some strong soft factors if I want a chance. UNC is not all glamour for me, it also has a lot to do with in-state tuition as well. Campbell is my #1, but the money factor scares me and contrary to myth, NCCU is not a shoe-in for everyone. I have thought about plugging in some far reaches as well...Wake, American, etc.
That is where my question comes in. I believe that I have strong soft factors by default since I am non-trad with 20-yrs of mistakes and learning from them. My one draw back is my Char & Fit Addendum...HS and College mistakes 20 yrs ago with good explanations. Some partying too much and minor traffic issues.
For the miracle examples like, UCLA, et al; what makes the difference? Is it all the PS? Non-trad diversity goals? Maturity? Or do I need a Dub-ya in my portfolio?
My LSAT goal is 160, but there is a good chance I could come in at 150. Who knows?
Anyway, thanks for motivating me. After a couple of months lurking here and on LSN, I was excited at the prospect of attending Cooley.
There is hope after all...
