On my lawschoolnumbers account I have put the date that my LSDAS report is requested as the "received" date. I put down the date that I get notification that all my items are turned in as my "complete" date --> just got my first one today, an email from Temple.
I would retake, but if you feel really cannot score higher and really do want to go to into law, I would apply to the lowest ranked law schools that still have accreditation. Going to an accredited school is key.
I would go with Georgia State because of the money that you can save if you just want to work in Atlanta, but if you want to broaden your choices beyond Atlanta for employment, I would consider Emory. I'm applying to both .
I would steer away from FAMU, but only because they only have provisional accreditation from ABA and you don't want to get stuck there if they aren't granted full accreditation and lose their provisional accreditation status because you have to have graduated from an ABA accredited school to take the bar. Barry though, has full accreditation, I don't know much about the others though.
If we get a fee waiver for a school that we have already applied to (I haven't as of yet - I'm just asking for future reference), is there any sort of refund for the application fee that we have already paid?
