Personal Statement / Re: ADDENDUM EDITING NEEDED

Sure...I'll be up for a while longer and maybe I can get something back to you tonite.

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...

Freezing cold was a 137 a couple of months ago.  I had no clue as to what I was doing on the first test.  Freaked out over the timing issue.  Learned a quick lesson.  Then I took a Kaplan simulated PT at a local college and scored a 144 a month ago.  I bought both Bibles and I am in deep study.

I'll take another PT over Thanksgiving holidays and see if there is any payoff.

I have until Feb07.
