Race is one thing, some people have had to pull themselves out of hard situations in life.  And not to mention, race is a factor due to the over 300 years of subjugation some members of our society had to endure.  In your case, you have a 155 on your LSAT.  You are a white American who decided to choke on one of the biggest tests of your academic life.  Why don't you try retaking the LSAT and working your way into a top law school.   

St. Petersburg is beautiful, very nice.  I would spend a few days there at the very least. 

Hell, I would just stay where you are at if you are able, especially if it is home just to save money. 

I personally think it is pretty sleezy trying to use some connection to get you off a waitlist.  It is what gives lawyers bad names.  Wait to do all the connections during law school, and just accept your fate.  How far down on the waitlist are you?  Are you more deserving than someone who has been put on the waitlist but has a much higher LSAT than yours?  Live with it, and hope they go to the waitlist.

You might like living in Virginia.  I am pretty partial to the place myself.  These are the employment stats that US news gives to WM.  Although most stay in the south (US News indicates 30% stay in VA), I have not doubt that if you actually attempted to apply in Texas you could land a good job.  As I said before they have a great reputation.   

New England (CT, ME, MA, NH, RI, VT): 3%
Middle Atlantic (NY, NJ, PA): 13%
East North Central (IL, IN, MI, OH, WI): 4%
West North Central (IA, KS, MN, MO, NE, ND, SD): 2%
South Atlantic (DE, DC, FL, GA, MD, NC, SC, VA, WV): 65%
East South Central (AL, KY, MS, TN): 2%
West South Central (AR, LA, OK, TX): 3%
Mountain (AZ, CO, ID, MT, NV, NM, UT, WY): 2%
Pacific (AK, CA, HI, OR, WA): 4%
Unknown: 1%

Law School Applications / Re: What can I do with this?

Well if you are willing, I'd wait five years so your first LSAT score is no longer valid then retest.  That average of a 148 wouldn't even get you in a good regional school.

I look like Conon O'Brien, apparently a dead ringer if you believe my students, friends and the random people who walk up to me on the street or in line and say i look like him (Yes this has happened more than once)!

Denials / Re: what do you do with your rejection letters?

I actually have my roommate throw out the really thin ones and ask him where they are from.  He kindly reads them, to make sure it is a rejection then he proceeds to curse at it and then tear it pieces.  I rarely see the actual rejection.

I am weighing some options at this time, but Penn State Dickison is a possibility that i am seriously considering.  There is no controversy in my eyes, only people on these boards who think they know what they are talking about.  However, I am off topic.  I like Carlisle, small towns have their appeal.  Who is considering going?  Or who is actually going, since the April 11th deadline is fast approaching?  Plus give me your impressions if you have them, and enough of the two campus system.  give it a rest people.

Well I doubt I will be accepted, although i haven't been home in two weeks to check the mail.  But it takes a certain person to deal with living in Williamsburg.  It is a tourist town for the most part.  All seasons of the year people are wandering around the town.  You are close to Busch Gardens, and they have a William and Mary student night there, for that weekend you will just have to get out and relax.  Virginia Beach is an hour or so away, Richmond is 45 minutes and DC is a little over 2 hours.  The town is small.  Very little to do when you do need to get out.  The people of Williamsburg are a little snobby. and there is so little to do (I am serious about this, i had friends who went there for undergrad and complained about this constantly).  The reputation of the law school is very good, at least in the state.  I am not too sure how national they are anymore.  I got the impression from lawyers I have talked to that you are going to be employed in a good job, just most likely in the state VA.  If you can live in a really small town, with tourists, lots of traffic in spring and summer, and little outside city activity then you will be fine.  I mean you are going to study law, not worry about having a lot of fun.
