Hey, x77 and everyone who has been rejected, just do what I plan to do - pick a local state law school as your first choice {a school that will be your 'safety' school}. That way if you are not accepted to Yale, Harvard [pronounced Hah.vad by those stupid yanks :P] or some other school, you'll still be happy.  Also, if you get rejected, just convince yourself that not only is the rejecting school NOT your first choice, but that the school is beneath YOU.

Hey, what is with the 'stupid yanks' remark?

Well, I said that because I think Harvard Law School is highly overrated.  I just LOVE  ::) that almost every law school in the US News and World Report's top 10 list is located in the north or the west.  Don't get me wrong, I am looking at schools all around the nation, but I am a southerner and would like to attend law school in my homeland -- the south.

Okay, I am a newcomer and from what I have seen, I feel like I will not get into any law school. I am still waiting on all my schools. I feel that I have a decent GPA but my LSAT score is the absolute worst. I have never been able to do well on these kind of tests. Now I just feel ignorant but my whole life I have wanted to go to law school.
It has been my dream, but after I have seen other peoples' scores, I am afraid every school is going to reject me.

How bad is the absolute worst, granted before I studied at all for the LSAT I presmed I had the absolute worst LSAT. Mine was a 124. (After study this number became more of a fluke and unrepresentative of my LSAT mastery ability, but since I hadn't studied and I was about 3 years early because I too have always aspired to be  lawyer, I winged it and bombed).

Hi all,

I have been dinged at Florida Coastal, Barry, and Widener thus far...My LSAT is a 145 with my gpa a 2.55. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in political science. I haven't given up hope yet but with each passing day and no new acceptances it is becoming increasingly difficult for optimism. I still have remaining apps out to Whittier, Roger Williams, NESL, St. Thomas, and Western State...Hoping for the best and planning for the worst! Try and stay positive everyone!
