Yes, I also originally put a lot of stock in my LSAT score. However, in my first round of applications, I picked 7 schools and UH was my safety school. I am from Houston, I love Texas, and I was very excited about UH.
And they rejected me.
My 2.19 is because my first 45 hours of school, when I was 16-19 years old, I was a bonehead and did boneheaded things. Then starting at 28, I got a degree but all of my hours were ungraded.
I think the GPA is just too much for ADCOMMS to handle. They just don't know how to evaluate it.
If anyone would like to recommend a school besides Cooley or Florida Coastal (already accepted) that will love my numbers, please do.

Yeah, I don't think Valpo is bad. But, I don't know what makes it good for me. I almost wish I wanted to be a lawyer, because then it would be easier for me to decide.

Like many, I applied to Valparaiso because of the fee waiver. After being dinged by Houston, I panicked and applied to every school that gave me a waiver except Ave Maria. I am still very worried.
It is March 1st already, and I have no idea how to decide where to go. At this rate, I will likely be choosing between paying full price for schools like DePaul and getting lots of money from Cooley.
Here are the factors that I am considering so far:
- Quality of the education
- Cost of the school
- Cost of living for the location
- Desire to live at location for 2 1/2 years
- Course catalog (international, comparative, constitutional)
- Reputation of the school in law
- Reputation of the school outside of law
- Joint degree programs
Things I am not the least bit interested in:
- Average salary of graduates
- Employment rates after graduation
- Enrollment demographics
- Average LSAT or GPA
The application process has been very stressful to me. I am not convinced that I have a good process for choosing a school. So, I am not sure if I am applying to the right schools. I have been tempted to literally apply to 150 schools just to see what happens. I have not done so mostly because it would cost $1800 in LSDAS report fees, not to mention application fees.
I donít want to be a lawyer and I donít even think I want to teach law, but I really do want to learn about law. I also want to leave my options open, in case I like law so much that I decide to do lawyering.
I have not seen any posts on this board from people that want to go to law just to learn about the law. I sure would love to find someone else that has figured this crap out already.

My daughter was actually born just a few hours before OKC and only about 150 miles away. It was a weird feeling to be so happy and then turn on the TV and see the sadness.

I just hit 1000 views on LSN - It's almost like seeing 100,000 miles on your car.
If I tried to explain this to my GF, I think she would just stare at me, so I am positing it here...
I can't wait to get off work.

The other incident that shares the April 19th anniversary happened in 1995 - the Oklahoma City Bombing.

I was defered in December and got my rejection today. I expected to get rejected when I applied, but I hoped that my PS was enough to make it in. I guess it was enough to get deferred, but...
Oh, well. One has to pay for their youthful indescrecions. (Well, not everyone, I guess.)
I wrote a new PS and an additional addendum and mailed them to Harvard and Yale today. I am hoping that 3 more months of researching how the admissions offices work has helped me to make a better attempt.

Yes, you are correct.
You might remember from math that there is a special statement written "p IFF q" or "p <-> q" which means p if and only if q.
p <-> q
p -> q AND q -> p
If your statment said all the worthy and only the worthy are saved then you would have s <-> w which would imply w -> s.

I read cnn.com regularly and I like the "Law" section, of course. I don't typically notice author's names on articles, but over the last few months, I have noticed that I like the articles written by Sherry Colb. For example, http://www.cnn.com/2005/LAW/02/23/colb.embryos/index.html
I also noticed that she is a professor at Rutgers. I have not applied to Rutgers, but should I _consider_ doing so based on just this? Is anyone else applying to a law school partly because of a professor?

Working with the numbers 29%, 19%, 12%, and 12% as the chances you will get into 4 different schools, then the chance you will not get into any of them is
(100% - 29%) * (100% - 19%) * (100% - 12%) * (100% - 12%) =
With some major assumptions that I will not go into, the rough estimate that you will get into at least one of the four schools is 55.5%.
I hope this helps.
