Law School

Still waiting…

Well, LSAT scores should be coming out next week sometime and the moment of truth will finally reveal itself. That score is going to be the sole deciding factor in whether I take the test one last time before sending out applications or whether I can just send out applications immediately. Since some time has passed I don’t feel like a complete nervous wreck over it, but I do still find myself getting anxious whenever I think about it.

All I can do is hope and pray that my score is good enough to apply now. I feel fairly confident in my personal statement and my entire application as a whole–including my stellar 3.76 GPA (I worked my ass off in college.) I’ve done about average on standardized tests. I don’t have mental freak outs or get so nervous that I freeze, it’s mainly just the pressure of the test that throws my focus. I did slightly above average on the ACT, horrible on the SAT and awesome on the FCAT (but who doesn’t?). I have a feeling I’m going to be between a 153-160. If I could have finished the dang test I would have felt closer to a 165 but I’ll admit—there were some hard questions that a majority of people I spoke too guessed on anyway. There are a few questions people have been talking about over and over again on the top law schools forum that I don’t even remember. It turns out that they were within the last 5 that I guessed on on the LR. It made me feel a little better knowing that at least 70% of TLSers guessed on the same ones I guessed on.

It’s been a pretty crazy last few weeks. I’m forever thankful that my journalism buddies edited my personal statement and it sounds like I got across the message I wanted to.

It’s in God’s hands now.
