I took like two months editing my essays. Write from the heart and don’t be afraid to go deep and be vulnerable. Write about how you overcame an obstacle….A at UH, waitlisted at Fordham and USC. I may reapply next cycle tho just because of that. What do yall think?

UH is a great school by the way. My cousin went to UH and argued in front of the Supreme Court this year (just fitting that in there I'm famous by relation sooo lol).
thats just a reason to not go there. i dont wanna meet the supreme court i'd make myself so nervous i pass out. again
TwinPeacock
21:23
I’m a UH grad! Lol 3.48, GRE, 10+ yrs work exp incl tech; URM. I think not taking the lsat was a factor.
TwinPeacock
21:24

@TwinPeacock: if you can get a higher gre score or score above their medians on the lsat that would probably help! That work experience sounds interesting too.

120,000 debt at UCLA vs 0 debt at UF what are we picking
Ijustwannagetinman
22:15
@DonkeyKongEsquire: where do you want to practice?
Ijustwannagetinman
22:16
120k of debt is pretty scary to me tbh because if that’s just tuition you’ll have living expenses too
CopticStrong
22:16

DonkeyKongEsquire
22:16

@DonkeyKongEsquire: where do you want to practice?

@DonkeyKongEsquire: personally I’d do UCLA because it’s more of a national school and would get me better public interest opportunities
DonkeyKongEsquire
22:17
good with CA or Florida, but from CA
Ijustwannagetinman
22:17
@ConcernedSmilingEmu: you wanna do public interest with 120k or debt? 🫡
Ijustwannagetinman
22:18
@DonkeyKongEsquire: if you’re down with Florida, UF can get you Miami big law but UCLA definitely has more national options
Ijustwannagetinman
22:18
Im debt averse so I’d go where I don’t have debt personally
DonkeyKongEsquire
22:18
Also spouse will have 80k in debt by the time I graduate too
