You know, there is a whole board on waitlists...

Department of Backstory:
Currently live and work in Florida, would very much like to get OUT of Florida. However, I am unsure as to if I would like to LIVE INDEFINITELY outside of Florida. I mainly just want to get out so I can figure that out. I have never lived anywhere other than Florida and I am pretty sick of it. But I could go to American and decide, you know I miss flip flops year round I want to be closer to my family. I just don't know yet.

Ideally I would work in DC, but if not I would likely just want to come back to Florida.

Public Interest/Government is what I am currently interested in (looking into the DOJ honors program and federal clerkships specifically). But that could change since I could take torts and decide I have found my life partner. I don't want to commit myself before I have even take my first class.

If you say one of the "If admitted" choices, what would be your next pick from the schools I have actually been admitted to.
I just feel like I am missing something obvious, and my own personal hangups keep me from seeing an obvious choice, so thank you for your opinions!

I sent in my apps in late December and they were complete in early October. 

WAT?  I think you may have flipped those months...

Since you are in UF's Priority pool you should hear back within the next few weeks.  What does your status check say?  What about FSU's?  FSU's turnaround was really quick for me, and I know they were waitlisting some people today.

Since you are borderline I'd submit a LOCI to your top choices.

Why either or?  They aren't expensive books, and it is not like there is much else to do for an 0L summer

I have no money. That's right.

I never had and I probably won't if I pursue what I do now.

But I always had this dream to go to lawschool and help others more professionally.

More importantly, I'm a foreigner and I heard that there is practically no chance to 

get a loan for a foreigner.

Luckily, my GPA is 3.75 and I think I can get above 175 in my LSAT

since I get more than that on my prep test (within the time limit).

I really want to do this.

Is there any way that I can go to a good school?

Loan or scholarship... I don't care.

This is a very odd post.

The answer is yes.  You can apply for LSDAS and LSAT waivers and that'll take some of the costs down.

Don't assume your score ... ever.  Prep Tests /= Actual LSAT.  Make application decision when you get your actual LSAT score back.

Once you start applying you will possibly get fee waivers to schools, especially if you do as well as your think you will.  You can also ask to have the application fee waived if they don't offer it on their own.

Um ... there's a reason people PM these and don't just post them straight out ... just sayin'.

Various Assistant State Attorneys come from everywhere.  Emory, W&M, FIU, South Texas, Stetson, UF, Vermont.  The standards based on tier of school alone are pretty low.  Just make the most of that Tier 4 school and come out on top.
