5. 

4 best regional schools with a P/T program.  Also applied to best school that had a P/T program where my corporate headquarters is located in case I take a job at the Mother Ship.

    - 1 WL acceptance, withdrew. No $, not pumped on school

This year 10.
7 Acceptences, attending 1st choice
1 rejection

I applied to 12, mainly because my GPA and LSAT do not match nicely so I wanted to be safe

2 because I must stay in Omaha.

Creighton
UNL

Accepted to both.
You want me to go all the way up there, to a Yankee school, just so I can come over every weekend and practice "free love" with you?

Six.  One safety, three targets and two reaches.  Safety offered full ride so I'm going there.   ;D

Applied to more than twelve.  What a waste.  I have choices, but am not happy with them.  I'll be reapplying next year if things don't work out with my final two waitlist choices.

I applied to 4 schools, 2 target (which I really wanted to get in to) and 2 reaches.  Thankfully, I got into my target schools, so I don't have to consider whether moving across the country would be the best option for me.

I originally planned on applying to 14 schools, but ended up applying to 11, partially because I saw people with higher #s getting rejected on LSN.  I wish I would have applied to those schools after all, since I've been waitlisted at other reach schools.  Oh well...

I applied to so many schools because although my numbers are pretty bad, I've got some great soft factors and LORs.  I really only had 2 safety schools.  Amazingly, only 1 school outright rejected me.  I'm okay with that though, because it was a local school and I really want to move out of downstate NY.

Mrs. Malaprop,
How does one even begin to think of Georgetown as a safety school?  Please enlighten us.

Peace, out.
