Yep, me too.  I think I've applied to 4-6 complete reaches (although I'm hoping that UMN will give me preference because 1) I'm a MN resident, and 2) I went to undergrad there and did a lot of things most undergrads never get to do, like be a TA twice. . .who knows, that might count against me though if they don't want people from undergrad in their law school), 4-5 targets, and 4 safeties, I think.  Might consider retaking the LSAT in February too, when I have more time to study for it.

Matokah, did you decide to add Seton Hall to your list?

I did.  Thanks for that. ;)

Actually, I'm thinking of dumping USF for Hastings, although I'm not sure if that's a smart move, considering I probably won't get in.  I tried to fill out USF's stuff tonight, and I couldn't find anything on the website (or app) on the personal statement.  It was getting really annoying. 

And as for Seton Hall, the app froze mid-way through.  Grr.  What a waste of a day.

Are you planning on applying, too?

Yup!  I figured with the insane number of reaches, I needed another safety to balance it out (and, unlike a good number of my other safeties, I think I would actually be pretty happy at Seton Hall)

Yes, apply to Hastings!!! :)  USF = TTT (based on the impression I got, anyway)

Yeah, USF seems more TTT than others that I'm applying to.  At least McGeorge people are nice and have a website that explains everything well.  Doesn't make up for the T3 ranking, but it helps.  That paranoia that I won't get in anywhere is starting to set in. . .kind of sucks.  :-\ 

We should make a pact that we both go to the same school if we both get into an awesome one. ;)

Hehe...well, it would help me make a decision (I have this horrible tendency to be indecisive...not to mention a tendency to hijack, a little.  Whoops)

We are applying to enough of the same schools for this to be a possibility!

Well, I wasn't decisive until I started worrying about a school's ratings.  When I started out, I just wanted to go to a school in a nice location that offered courses I was interested in.  Now I'm freaking out about every stupid little thing.

I'm actually considering retaking the LSAT in February so I have the entire month of January to study for it.  I just don't know how that works, though. . .I suppose I should inform the schools, but I don't know.  Maybe I should just take it and then let them know.  Ugh.  Confusion.

Just 1 T1 acceptance, I think, would make my day.  Preferably tomorrow. :)

I'm a little short on fall back schools, too.  Finding fall backs is hard, though.  I don't want to settle.

I applied to BU sight unseen.  Could you guys please tell me what you like about it/what led you to apply?  Thanks.
