Privet!  I'm also a Ruskie :)

I've been on the boards for a year now, and to my shame, just now saw this topic when it popped up in my unread posts.  I'm in Texas, re-taking the LSAT in September and hoping to get into UT.  I'm older than most of you (29) and have a 2-yr old :0
Accepted: Michigan($$), Northwestern($$$), Vanderbilt($$$), UCLA($$), UT($$$), WUSTL($$$), UIUC($$$$), Notre Dame($$),

Attending: TEXAS !!!

Being an immigrant and having English as your second language should equal to like extra 10 points on the LSAT score, haha.

I wish.

Wow, even though you got accepted to some amazing schools there, I'm kind of surprised by the rejections you got.  Surely hoped something like being only 10 years in the country would've pushed you over the line. 

If you don't mind me asking, because I'm kind of counting on this whole thing being a plus for me in the long run.  Did you have to overcome any other things other than language, culture?  Because I'm writing about being from middle of nowhere in Ukraine, being the first to go to college, overcoming poverty, etc.  So, maybe it'll be something.
