Extra Curricular Information

Is being a single mom considered an extracurricular activity? :)
I volunteer as a Big Sister to a 13 yr old girl.

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

I'm non-trad. I've been working for 20yrs, currently as a legal secy.

I changed my mind & applied FT to Pace and Rutgers. I really would prefer to go during the day so i thought i'd give it a shot.

let the waiting begin!!!!

12/3 - Had an interview @ Pace. I think i did ok, but i was nervous! don't know why i was nervous, my interviewer was extremely nice, i just get nervous on interviews. i should here back from Pace in mid-Jan, early Feb.

12/4 - was getting a lil' ansy about being complete @ the schools i applied to in early Oct. called Touro and was told that i'm complete. applications sent for rev until Jan. called Stetson & was told the same. i'm glad i called!

12/7 - I got an acceptance e-mail from Rutgers-Newark yesterday!!! :) i'm soooooo excited & pleasantly suprised! i couldn't stop smiling, even in my sleep...i should be receiving a package from Rutgers in the mail shortly.

12/10 - called SUNY-Buffalo to check on the status of my app & was told that i've been complete since 11/29.

12/12 - called CUNY to check & i'm complete. i didn't realize that CUNY does not send notification.

12/14 - hmmm, i noticed that people who scored in the 160's are getting their acceptances now from Pace. meanwhile, i was told that decisions would start going out in Jan....i guess those of us who scored under 160 will hatve to continue to wait until next year.

12/18 - accepted to Touro by mail yesterday! it was a large brown envelope, very thin. nice surprise! especially since Touro's one of the schools that told me they didn't start reviewing until Jan also. maybe schools just say that so people won't call throughout the month of December. 2 down...7 to go!

1/17 - anyone else feel like screaming??!! on the one hand, i'm glad that i haven't heard anything in awhile b/c that means no rejections, on the other hand, i REALLY want to hear from somebody!!!

1/19 - Yes!! I'm in @ Pace! Happy, happy, joy, joy! I recd a large white envelope that included a folder w/an acceptance ltr.

1/23 - Guess what I found in my mailbox last night...that's right!!! A large white envelope from Stetson w/an acceptance letter to the part-time program. This is great! Hopefully, i'll be able to visit the school next month.

1/27 - This has been a really good weekend. On Fri night, an acceptance letter from Florida Coastal was in the mail and on Sat an acceptance package from SUNY-Buffalo! Now i was pretty sure i would get in to Florida Coastal since they kept sending e-mails practically saying i was in, if i applied, but the acceptance from SUNY was a total surprise! I'm definitely driving up next month to visit the school, which means i'm not sure if i'll make it to Florida.

2/14 - Happy V-day everyone!!! I sent my letters out today withdrawing from Touro and Florida Coastal so maybe someone else who's waiting will get in. Good Luck!

2/25 - I visited UB and loved it! Great school w/good people. I'll probably w/d from more schools this week. Still nothing from Cuny, SJU and Hofstra. We'll see what happens.

2/26 - I'm withdrawing from Pace and Stetson today. I decided that although i really like Pace, it's just too expensive for me. As far as Stetson goes, it was nice to have that choice to possibly move to and practice in Florida but it's not something i can do at this time. I know there are people waiting to hear from both schools. I hope this helps!! :)

2/28 - I was already leaning heavily towards UB when I recd a call from the Vice Dean of Admissions who told me i was selected for the fellowship!!! YIPEE!! I am so surprsed and sooo grateful. I am excited about being a UB law student and i'm really looking forward starting in the Fall. I know that UB is the right choice for me.
I am going to w/d from the schools where my apps are still pending.
GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!!

3/3 - Recd a small, stuffed white envelope w/an acceptance letter inside from Hofstra, but I already mailed out a letter requesting that my app be w/d. Guess they didn't get it yet.

Good luck with your University at Buffalo Law School application. I am a first year student there and the place is amazing. All my profs are either Ivy League or Top 10 law school grads. If you are a NYS resident, the tuition cannot be beat. A very strong Tier 2 school, it is important to note that the ilrg.com 2008 ratings have just come out and UNIVERSITY AT BUFFALO LAW SCHOOL IS RATED 29TH IN THE NATION REGARDING EMPLOYMENT AT GRADUATION !

Thanks for your note. Never been to Buffalo ? It doesn't get all the snow that folks think and it is the birthplace of BUFFALO WINGS ! Also Wolf Blitzer of CNN fame is an alum of UB and Buffalo is the home town of Tim Russert !

- tortguy
  • Thanks!
  • Thursday, January 10 2008 at 04:22 AM

Hi Alisha! Is the wait killing you? I wish my last ones could come in so that I can make my decision. You should get news any day...good luck!

- larsonney72
  • Agreed
  • Friday, January 11 2008 at 07:16 AM

It just sucks to see small thin envelopes.... maybe a school will surprise me with a thin envelope acceptance! Thanks Alisha, But ur right, i still have lot of school to hear from.... it ain't over till its over (or your seat deposits are due)...... Thanks for the encouragement!

- dominrrican
  • But no money...
  • Friday, January 18 2008 at 04:03 PM

Thanks for the note of congratulations...but with my crappy lsat I am not getting any merit $$$...with full price over $30,000 a year at most of my schools I don't know what to do...I don't want to be in debt the rest of my life. I am almost thinking of not going to law school unless I can get a sweet deal from my remaining schools but I'm not holding my breath!! Enough about me...you should be hearing good news any day...I bet they all come in a rush!! Best of luck...

- larsonney72
  • Congrats!!!
  • Sunday, January 20 2008 at 06:14 PM

That's what I'm talking about! I'm so happy for you! You even got a scholarship...awesome. I was suprised by my waitlist...I really thought I had a shot but then I applied to the FT program so they probably dinged me because of that.

You need to go see the main campus in Gulfport and also the Tampa campus. Tampa campus is relatively new, but the Gulfport campus is amazing looking.

  • I mait wait...
  • Monday, January 28 2008 at 01:37 PM

I think I am leaning towards retaking the lsat in June and applying for '09 if I can get into the 160's...otherwise I might end up teaching. The debt load & job prospects are scaring me. I will wait for all my applications to finish though before I decide...maybe even after a 5th of bourbon... Congrats again on your perfection!!

Thanks for your feedback. Right now I'm just taking everything in before I make my decision. More than likely, I will be choosing NYLS. I am mentally preparing myself for the AAMPLE program. I'm reading alot of material on how to prepare for my first year so that should help me out. Thanks for your feedback!

Yes...I have shrugged off my doom and gloom and said hell with it...lets go to law school. I realizied that I had set so many things in motion that I needed to go now or never. Anyway...I am so pumped for my road trip...5 cities in 5 days...it'll be crazy. I'll keep you posted!

  • Tuesday, February 26 2008 at 06:05 AM

That's what I was thinking!So much for notifying me. And I have no idea why they didn't receive it in December. If it was a school I reallyyyy wanted to hear from I would've been more upset. Thankfully it was just Cooley, lol. What school is number 1 in your mind so far? I'm waiting to hear from Touro. I see you're from New York state, do you know much about what kind of town Touro is located in?

- carlyk
  • Hiiii
  • Wednesday, February 27 2008 at 08:23 AM

Thanks! If I was to get accepted then I'll visit. I saw the building on the website and it looked nice. But since you've actually been there, I know now..you know how schools can be, distorting their pictures to make it seem nicer than it really is =)

- carlyk
  • Great News!
  • Thursday, February 28 2008 at 07:03 PM

Congratulations on the fellowship. UB is truly the school for you and they obviously want you as much as you want them and that always makes things work out great. so now it is official, you are for sure going to law school YAY!!!

Hi, alisha. Can you tell me how you got the fellowship for UB? Is it something I have to apply for or is it just random? I'm leaning on attending buffalo in the fall so maybe i'll see you if I do. Thanks

  • Saturday, March 29 2008 at 08:09 AM

Well, the wait is finally over and I'm in!!! Thank God, what a process. I see you chose U Buffalo and congratulations and best of luck with that. There is nothing quite like being able to go where you wanted to go all along, because even for me in college, I had no clear cut favorite until after I was admitted to schools. With law schools Stetson was the #1 for me all along and getting in there is overwhelming haha. Well I hope you are doing well, and now the wait to the first year begins.

  • Monday, March 31 2008 at 05:28 AM

Hey, I actually decided to go to Franklin Pierce... it is ranked very well for IP law (which is what I am trying to get into) and the avg income of the new graduates will make paying my huge loans off a little bit easier. I wish I was closer to home and UB is a great place... but I think I picked the right place for me, ya know?

Yea, I just signed my applications for student loans last night... 54k a year... I know UB won't have been that expensive! ... now I have to find housing :-/ and then im done :-) until the move... I think your going to be getting more snow, I grew up in Rochester and went to school in Erie, I def remember what it was like. New Hampshire doesn't get nearly as much as the snow belt.
