Yep, I'm out. It's no surprise, but it still sucks. :-[

Sorry Legalkitty.

They obviously do not know what they are missing. They do not deserve you. Better luck with your pending apps!

lol! Thanks guys. In answer to the numbers question, my numbers suck. I have a 3.06 and a 147 and yes, I did consider retaking but I am a BAD standardized test taker. Yes, I did study, and the more I studied, the worse I did (I started out cold with a 151). I am hoping for Widener actually; schools like NYLS and Pace area clearly major reach schools, but it can't hurt to apply, right? I also am applying part-time and genuinely have unique life and work experience. We'll see what happens; I am trying to remain hopeful. Thanks again, everyone!

My rejection should be coming soon... I just found out today that I am on the waitlist at California Western. At first, they were supposed to be one of my safeties, but then the LSAC shredded my GPA and turned all of my safeties into reaches.

That's a very convincing statement.   ::)

Thanks, Shadowcreeper. You are a true friend.

Jared413- I don't really have any safeties. My best shot according to Chiatsu and LSAC (of course, they are not accounting for part-time status) is 40% from Widener and Touro. And there is always Widener's TAP, which I am hoping I would AT LEAST be accepted into that. You'd think, but of course there are no guarantees. Here' s hoping!!
