Law School Admissions / Deferred: What to do?
« on: December 25, 2004, 10:10:43 AM »
I remember hearing a list of things you can do to improve your standing if you're waitlisted (i.e., additional LOR, additional statement, visits, etc.).  Do these same sorts of actions work to your benefit if you're deferred, or is it best to just leave your application alone?

Rejected yesterday. I must say I'm extremely let down -- I really thought I'd get deferred or WL...keeping my head up though -- I'm going to be an attorney regardless, and my success will not be dictated by the institution's name on my degree.

I did not receive an automatic notification of my application status -- I called a week or two ago and they gave me my complete date.

I'm not quite sure where I'll favor between UF and UGA -- I'm waiting on a lot of other decisions, and I'm still really let down about Georgetown.  Once I receive my share of acceptances and dings I'll be able to think much more clearly about my options...any sort of financial aid could play a huge factor as well...

Thanks for the congrats -- good luck to you all, too.

I was complete right around the third week of November (I think November 22 or so).

I got a 167 and have a 3.59 in accounting and criminology at the University of Florida.

I also got rejected from Georgetown and accepted to UGA in the same batch of mail...bittersweet I guess...

I'm still at complete as well.  I've been refreshing constantly for some time now -- I'm gonna let it go till the morning.

BTW -- white envelope is rejection and cream is acceptance -- anyone know what defferal/waitlist comes in?

Anyone care to look over my personal and/or diversity statement? If so please just let me know via e-mail ( or AIM (GatorKevin1).


Studying for the LSAT / Re: Canceling question
« on: October 19, 2004, 07:29:20 PM »
Hello, all. This is an absolutely huge bump, but I just wanted to drop a line. This past summer I spent a lot of time here torturing myself over whether to take the exam and, subsequently, whether or not to cancel. I ended up doing both, and I don't have regrets about either.

Since then, I took the TestMasters class and spent a lot of time with the Logic Games Bible and a mound of practice tests. In terms of both my practice scores and the level of comfort I had going in this past October, everything really paid off. After giving myself a couple weeks to relax in June, I found that I felt much more attuned to the material once I started back with my studies. Also, as far as the actual test goes, the testing environment the second time around was not nearly as intimidating or stressful as it was back in June (obviously).

Of course I still don't know my score, and I'll never realize the true improvement I made because I'll never know how I did in June. However, I did want to thank yall for the advice back then and let yall know that I'm still alive.
