Waitlisted.  The resentment has subsided somewhat now that I have an actual decision, but now I'm sure the waitlist resentment will build.

Is anyone else getting rediculously resentful towards Fordham? I've been complete for two months as well, and it's definitely getting close to go time in terms of actually choosing where to go, and I'm really starting to like, hate them a little?

Yea I really came into this whole law school thing pretty much on my own. I have a great advisor but unfortuantely he's not particularly down with the whole law school application process, so I was kinda stuck on my own and just did the best I could in terms of applying. He didn't get his letter in till late and I didn't know whether I could apply with only one  LOR in, so I waited till LSAC said both were in. Bad idea?

The LSAT score was a bit of a surprise, I was scoring in the 160-162 range on every single practice test, so then I kinda had to change schools I was looking at once my score was higher than I expected.  I was actually debating waiting a year to apply just from stuff I read on here. 

Only requirement for the scholarship is to stay in top half of the class. I know most discussion is pretty much ad hoc at this point (apps are in, seems like its pointless to apply anywhere else), but anything helps.

Edit: Not dickish at all  :)

I've been lurking on LSD since I took the LSATs back in September..I was trying to figure out when the scores were up and found a forum full of people nervously waiting for scores to be released.. I quickly turned into one of those constant refreshers when I realized the day I had decided to start looking when scores was actually the day the scores came out (it was a Friday?).  I just started lurking around again, trying to see when decisions were made and stuff like that. 

Let's see..I've got a 3.64/166, pretty average, I don't know.  I never knew there was such (for the lack of a better word) obsession and insanity over GPAs, median scores, percentiles, and uh, what exactly is an admissions index number?  For the most part, you all make me want to stick my head in the sand when it comes to law school. 

I applied late to law school it seems by most standards (all apps in on Jan 5th), and I've heard back from one.

I've applied to about 11 schools and I applied to St. John's Law cause its close to my hometown. I just got the letter this week, and they offered me a full ride. 

My big question is, is it insanity not to accept a full ride? Like say I get into Fordham or Cardozo, both schools I would love to go to, am I absolutely insane to go one of those, and not somewhere basically offering me a free education?
