I sent you a PM, but for anyone else reading this, my LSAT went up from a 157 to a 162, and it put me in a completely different place.  I got money at a school that waitlisted me last year, and this year I got into much higher ranked schools.  It was without a doubt worth retaking the LSAT and waiting another year.  5 points is worth at least $18,000 in my opinion!

Yep, I got one too.  Do you think it means they are extra interested in us?  I sure hope so!!!!

Does anyone know if BU always calls people who were accepted?  I just called them (sent in application in Nov. complete the middle of Jan) to see if they had made a decision yet, and they said that they mailed it.  I remember seeing that people who were accepted got phone calls, so I'm kind of freaking out right now, especially since everyone on LSN who has heard from them recently got rejected.

Someone give me some good news :)

I'm not in state, so you must not have to be to get a scholarship.

I really hope our class performance doesn't impact anything.  I was thinking that we need to read the cases so we can actually have a normal class with a discussion of some sort.  If we didn't read anything, we wouldn't get much out of the mock class experience.

Bump because the interview is in a few days.  Anyone else getting a little nervous?  Any advice as to what to check out while I'm in town for the weekend?

I have no idea how important it is to have a current date on LORs.  For me it was just a personal preference to have everything as updated as possible.

I reapplied this year, and I can tell you that LSAC does keep your letters of recommendation and transcripts.  You don't have to send those things in again.  You might want to check with your recommenders to see if they put a date on your letters though, since you probably don't want them to look like they are a year old when your schools get them.  If you aren't in school and don't have new grades, there wouldn't be any reason to send a new transcript in.

I don't know if your chances of getting into school will be any different as a reapplicant.  If it is more competitive to get into school each year, then it might be slightly more difficult.  I can tell you that I got into one school that I was waitlisted at last year, and was waitlisted at one I was waitlisted at last year.  I haven't heard back from the other one I reapplied to.  But, I retook my LSAT.  I think a supplemental essay or adding something to your personal statement with the reasoning for taking a year off would be helpful.  I don't think it would ever hurt you, and it would give the adcoms more confidence that you wouldn't be a flight risk.

I wonder if since there are new reporting rules for US News, they are trying to raise their numbers...

I think there has to be something other than life experience that they are looking for.  I've been out of undergrad for 3 years and have what I think is quite unique work experience, but I'm still stuck on the WL.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: BC Admitted Student Weekend

Hey everyone!  I'm really disappointed that I can't make it to ASW, but I did visit BC and BU last weekend.  I absolutely loved BC, and I think there is a really good chance I'll be going there, or at least somewhere in Boston.  The law school pretty much has an entire law campus, compared to BU's ugly building (with a beautiful view).  The library was awesome as was the area of town it's in.  My only complaint was how long it took to get there on the T.  I am definitely bringing a car if I go here!
