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.

Are you only applying to these 2 schools?

Hello
Tuesday, October 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hi Alisha, I tried to set up an interview but since I live in a remote part of Arizona I would have had to travel 3+ hours to interview...so I didn't. Let me know how it goes...good luck!!

Congrats!
Tuesday, December 26 2006 at 07:00 PM

Glad to see someone with similar numbers as myself got into a great school. Congratulations to you and hope this is the first of many offers.

I don't know about all of that, Latin Lord would be a tough act to follow. But I have no problem helping any and everyone out in any which way i can. I'm no Latin Lord but i sure wouldn't mind trying.....

Good luck
Thursday, December 06 2007 at 07:00 PM

Also, I wanted to wish you good luck and congrats on Rutgers! Its one of my top choices...... Wish you the very best. KIT.

Thursday, December 06 2007 at 07:00 PM

Pace
Wednesday, July 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

Look at you...2 for 2!! Congrats...I heard the same thing from Pace...I think we're not worthy;-)

Hello there
Friday, December 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations on your acceptances. More good news are on the way. Good luck and happy holiday

University at Buffalo Law School
Friday, January 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

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 !

University at Buffalo Law stuff
Friday, January 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

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 !

Thanks!
Tuesday, October 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

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!

Agreed
Thursday, December 06 2007 at 07:00 PM

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!

But no money...
Tuesday, October 23 2007 at 08:00 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...

Congrats!!!
Tuesday, October 23 2007 at 08:00 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.

Question
Monday, December 03 2007 at 07:00 PM

Did you interview at pace? if yes what's it like?

Stetson
Saturday, September 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on Stetson. I applied to both PT and FT. Did you do both? The school is awesome but expensive...definitely a good one though.

Stetson Visit
Saturday, September 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

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.

Hello
Friday, December 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

Wow, you have great news ....I am happy for you. So, what's your number one choice?

Perfection!
Tuesday, October 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

Man..5 for 5...great job! No matter what you'll be over .500 now! So which one of your accepted's are you leaning towards?

I mait wait...
Tuesday, October 23 2007 at 08:00 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!!

Congrats!
Thursday, December 06 2007 at 07:00 PM

I was just checking in and wanted to to tell you how excited I am for you!!!! Congrats on all of your acceptances. You are a true success story and give many others reason to hope!!!! I wish u nothing but the best!

=)
Monday, December 24 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations on your achievements thus far, I see you're a single mother and I love that you're standing strong in taking care of your business! I wish you the best with the rest of the decisions=)

Congrats!!!
Sunday, December 09 2007 at 07:00 PM

I see we're both in at FCSL and Pace. Will you be attending Pace? All the best!

Congrats!
Thursday, January 03 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hello! Congrats on SUNY!! I have heard it's a really good school. Wish you the best of luck and stay in touch.

Pace
Sunday, December 09 2007 at 07:00 PM

Yeah...Pace seems like a good school....I am really feeling Howard, so if I dont get into Northwestern, I may go there!

Still Perfect!
Tuesday, October 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hi Alisha...so have you decided yet? Its getting down to crunch time...which way are you leaning? Congrats so far!!

Great job
Thursday, February 07 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hey, just wanted to tell you congratulations on those acceptances. I was recently accepted to Florida Coastal as well but do not see myself going there if possible. What school are you leaning towards? Rutgers (since it's in NY)?

Buffalo
Tuesday, May 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey, I believe that we have something in common: we're both thinking about UB. Can you tell me a bit about your experience there while visiting. You can also aim me at opcydebby1 if you don't mind. Thanks so much...

Back at it...
Tuesday, October 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

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!

=/
Monday, December 24 2007 at 07:00 PM

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?

Hiiii
Monday, December 24 2007 at 07:00 PM

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 =)

UB fellowship
Wednesday, January 23 2008 at 07:00 PM

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

Congrats on the UB fellowhsip!
Tuesday, May 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

I got the fellowship too! I will probably be seeing you in Fall.

UB
Saturday, November 10 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on UB. I hope that I get accepted off of their waitlist... it was my top choice... if so, I will see you in the fall! I loved it when I visited their campus as well... people were really happy to be there.

UB
Saturday, November 10 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hopefully we can deal with the snow in the winter together! I miss upstate NY but those winter (Oct - Apr)classes would really be a fun commute to!

Congrats!!
Tuesday, October 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey Alisha...congratulations! So you decided, huh?! That means now you can just kick your heels up and relax, for a few months anyway! Congrats again on your accomplishments!

Stetson Update
Thursday, February 07 2008 at 07:00 PM

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.

this fall
Saturday, November 10 2007 at 07:00 PM

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?

Temple
Sunday, July 22 2007 at 08:00 PM

Alisha, it was SUCH a hard decision because I just love Buffalo. It's a great place and great school, and I will always have a place in my heart. :) I just can't turn down a full ride though, so close to home!

Rutgers Newark
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey, congrats to your acceptances....Was there any reason in particular for why you decided to W/draw from Rutgers Newark?

yeppers
Saturday, November 10 2007 at 07:00 PM

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.

RNL
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks, your reason makes lots of sense! Hope u have manying blessings for your upcoming semester in school. ...I'm still praying that I get accepted into Rutgers Newark!!
