Is 30 not enough?
« on: December 14, 2006, 10:51:01 AM »
Ok, so I know many of you will think that I am crazy, but I've applied to about 30-something schools.  I wasn't satisfied with my first LSAT score so I took the Dec exam.  I'm wondering if I should apply to more depending on my new LSAT score, or if I should just stop applying and see what happens, then apply later if I don't like the results?  I'm sort of just in app submiting mode and I may need someone to snap me out of it.  What do you think is the best course of action?
In: RU-C($), Loyola, Nova, Temple ($$), AU, Emory, WUSTL ($$), NDLS ($$), Wake, Case, GULC (PT), Fordham, Cardozo, Mason (PT)

Out: UMich, NYU, Boalt, UC-Davis, HLS, UofChicago, Columbia, UWash

30 is far from enough!

you have casted a wideee net, and depending on ur new score u have some chances... i would say wait it out, fight the urge to apply for more and spend ur time applying to other things, like scholarships or something.

I would go ahead apply Yale and Cornell as well. What the heck, it is 30+2, why not. It is less than 10% difference. Not significant, but might make you happy in the end.

Apply to 50 schools.  It's very prestigious.

I got dizzy.  The postman will hate you in ~ 1-2 months.

If you've applied to thirty, why are you asking us whether you ought to apply to two more?  You know you want to...

Good luck!

Stop it. Just stop it. That is more than enough.

I really hope you had fee waivers

You've already been accepted somewhere. That's a good place to stop.
