Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Catholic Law

I got in with 155/165 LSATs and a 3.3 GPA.
Still waiting to hear back from a bunch of schools, but I currently live in DC and love it here. I would love to stick around, but I've got to wait and see.

I deliver subpoenas in the morning and work in a bakery in the evening. Also, I got paid to dress up in a bunny rabbit suit last week and walk around the city. I have a plethora of hilarious stories about these adventures in the blog in my signature...
I am planning on combining the baking and subpoena jobs. I will deliver cakes that simply say "You Got Served" in icing. Fun times.

yeh, it seems like they meet with students at breakfasts and lunches in geographically convenient locations soon after offering acceptances. should i offer to pick up my tab or do they pay for this? what's the protocol? do i wear a suit? i'm so confused.

I just got my first acceptance!
After improving 10 points on my LSAT (155 to 165), I have been waiting to see how schools would react. I'm pretty stoked to get in to a school! I'm a Virginia resident, so it's dope to get in somewhere in the Old Dominion...
Anybody else get in there? The Dean sounded nice on the fone. I'll meet her soon up here in DC.

I'm gonna apply to UNC and George Mason tomorrow.. I might throw in a little UPenn and Georgetown, but I think that might be getting ahead of myself.

a year off? hmm.. i have no idea what i would do. i worked on the 2004 election and i haven't really had much to do since then. lately i've been working at a bakery, delivering subpoenas, and occasionally getting paid to walk around Georgetown in a bunny rabbit costume.
i really would like to go to law school next year.
i'm hoping i can convince a school or two to let me in...

I'll definitely look in to applying to a few more schools that accept the higher scores, but I'm guessing most of them have already filled their classes full by now. I probably have kind of slim chances even though the official deadline is March 15th for some of them, right? Whatever, I'll give it a shot.
Also, I wrote one of the schools that rejected me without waiting for the new score and convinced them to reconsider my application. I feel like I'm on one of those reality shows where you get a makeover and people treat you differently cuz you're super-duper hot and have nice jeans all of a sudden.
As for the dude who referred to me as his idol and asked for advice: Wow. Thanks! I once said those same words to Carrot Top when I saw him in a bar at a ski resort. I said it sarcastically, but he thought I was serious... which made the whole thing very funny. I forget his advice.
My advice to anybody trying to improve by 10 points on the LSAT is this: pretend like studying is fun. Seriously. I woke up every morning for 4 weeks and did logic games with my cereal and acted like they were crossword puzzles. After 10 days, I started timing myself. I did 3 sections a morning timed, and 2 in the afternoon. Do a test a day for the last 10 days before the LSAT. It'll be so familiar that you'll do just fine.
And if that doesn't work, give Carrot Top a call. He's always got advice.

I just got my February LSAT score back and I managed to jump up from a 155 to a 165.
Surely this should improve my chances at the schools I sent my applications into for this Fall.
What do you guys think? Thanks.
Take a look at my law school numbers profile and tell me how you think certain schools will react. I know they all have different policies... Word. Peace.
