Welcome all who's applying this cycle. I hope this site helps you out. Any questions feel free to ask. I'm currently in school so forgive me if it takes a while for me to answer, but I will try my best to get back to you.

One word of advice...boost your reading speed and get your comprehension level at those higher speeds up to par. YOU HAVE ASSIGNMENTS FROM DAY 1!!!!!

GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!

6/17/06
Just thought I'd leave the most recent message at the top today...for quick reference...ANYWAY, I haven't written in a while, but wasn't much to report...school wise anyway. I called/emailed Rutgers a couple of times, but nothing yet. I've paid all my seat deposit fees for FCSL, booked a trip to Jax, and reserved my moving truck for Jax already. Gotta make a decision so, I'll be at FCSL in Jacksonville Folks!! I'm quite excited. This is a new adventure...I just hope I don't go crazy in this next phase...

So, thanks for all the great messages of encouragement, it's been truly helpful. I hope all the people coming upon a new admit cycle reads this profile and the many others and see, you always have a chance and you Will succeed. Yeah, you may have obstacles, but they can be hurdled...ok, sniffle sniffle..that's my little 2 cents. LOL.

I will try to check this site here and there in case anyone has questions or want to leave messages (and partly because I'll probably be having Law School Numbers website withdrawals).

Wow, I'm going to Law school...They like me...they really like me...Sorry, movie moment.

ps....Sad but I STILL haven't heard from NCCU, UDayton uhmm...so they really do wait 'til the 1st day of class to say, heyyy congrats, you're accepted...Whateva'!

OK, GOOD LUCK IN SCHOOL EVERYBODY!!! I HOPE YOU DO WELL, AND FOR THOSE STARTING THE CYCLE (for the first or 2nd..3rd.. times), GOOD LUCK TO YOU TOO!! Keep pressing ahead!

7/2 OK!! As if the DING wasn't enough back in March, someone at UGa had the nerve to rub salt in my wound by sending me a form on how to pick a professor. The letter started off with, Congrats on your ADMISSION...Check the freakin files UGA, you dissed me early on. Thanks for the double wammy....I get it. Geesh
*************************************************

Didn't do well on LSAT...a bit stressed..aagghh! Gotta pray! Well, I've submitted several apps now, so hopefully the New Year will bring in some good news!

1/10 Wow, they don't really notify you regarding complete apps. like they say they will. I followed up on most to confirm they received everything.

1/12 Got an email from Ohio Northern admissions alerting me of their free online application and urged me to apply. So, I added yet another school...

1/18 - I still haven't heard from schools about applications being complete so strongly urge those of you who are waiting, to contact the school or go online to see if the web has a 'check status' function. My app for Howard would have been complete two weeks ago but still waiting for my undergrad school to get them the Certification Letter... **sigh*** I have to call my undergrad school again.

1/20 Yessss! I finally got the certification thing taken care of. Application is now complete. Got and email from University Detroit Mercy about applying for financial aid and I recieved a packet (viewbook) from FCSL.

I actually started getting letters/postcards about applications being complete. Weird considering the dates LSAC sent the reports out, but I guess they don't actually consider your application complete until they are ready to review it, as opposed to when your documents actually arrive. Hmmm...

1/24 Got a thin envelope... Whittier :-(
(did they really review my application? I think not!)

1/29
Valpo- ...Got a letter over the weekend. My status
is 'Admissions Pending' which they say is above the traditional waitlist. So when/if other's withdraw their apps, I can be considered for one of those seats. Hmm.. I guess I can be happy. :-)

Ohio Northern- wants me to interview for their Summer Program.

2/3 Got a big package from UDM but it was only info on my admissions contact 'team' and their portfolio. There goes the big white envelope theory. Anyway, I also received the letter from T Cooley regarding my counselor assignments. Still waiting...

2/7
UDM- I keep getting a million an one mailings but not one piece that says 'you're admitted' so even though it seems they're teasing me, I hope it's a good sign. :-p

Widener - My application should have been complete some time ago but the date I have in the complete section above is when I got a reply to my email giving me the status of my application.

2/10
Hopefully I'll be hearing from Thomas Cooley soon. They say I should be getting something in the mail soon... I think I just wanna welcome some good news!!

NYLS-Well, My application is on 'HOLD'. They don't consider it waitlisted.

So, still, nothing definitive........ aaaggghhhh!!!!! Ok, I'm ok.

2/15 UDM...You're killin' me. The big envelopes...please, the ups and downs of thinking it's that coveted envelope (even though I said I threw that theory out the window) is going to give me a heart attack. But, I'll be waiting for THE one that says accepted. Thank you!

2/22 -Got a letter from Emory stating I didn't get the fellowship but they'd notify me with the decision on my application...Hmmm. With all the great LSAT underdog success so far the past couple of weeks, a girl can only hope that letter says a little something. I WANT that acceptance! LOL...

Oh, Although I didn't apply, I keep getting mail from Michigan State...anybody getting a lot of mail from them? Any advice on the school, their mailing process etc. would be appreciated. Maybe I should just apply and see what happens...but don't wanna pay another fee...

2/24-Today was such a bad and stressful day (for reasons beyond admissions) but I got home and had 2 letters. Which shall I open...the one that looks thicker? Well, I chose the thin one, my day was already shot anyway...SETON HALL...how could you?!? The THIN white envelope...D'oh.
Well, FCSL...looks a little thicker although still a regular envelope (hence the reason I saved it for last). YESSSS!!!! I did my acceptance dance, and like all LSN addicts, immediately ran to enter my news. I'm going to Disney world! Oh sorry, a bit excited... ohhh My head hurts...I'm out.
oh yeah, the dates reflect the date on the letters.

3/3 I'm out of town but my friend, who's keeping an eye out on the mail, broke the news to me...HOWARD...so raw! They just don't have compassion huh? oh and the dates are from when the letter was written not when received.

3/5 Now that I've had a day of down time, time to take this in, can I just say, THIS SUCKS!! Ok. Now, I can wait for the next wave of decisions. I hope there's some good ones in there. ****** sigh*******

3/8 Called for an update on my mail...
--UGA...Unfortunately... sent the thin envelope. tears slowly dropped...well, not really.. but inside...
--NYLS, remember they had me on hold? Well, they sent me an envelope with and invitation to a conditional program starting soon. I have to decide by end of this month...oh what to do?!?!? Decisions, decisions...
--I also checked online and apparently GSU made a decision but I have no clue what it is yet. Guess I have to wait for the mail...PLEASE OH PLEASE let me get accepted to the last GA school left on my list.

3/14 Damn, Damn Damn!! Two thin envelopes at once...Guess I won't be in Georgia. How dare them. I think it was a conspiracy 'cause they all decided around the same time...wassup with that? Oh well.

Also got a packet from Widener, they've also invited me to the conditional program at the harrisburg campus...uh...no. sorry. your classes start in MAY, just not doable...but thanks. okay bye- bye.

Well folks. This wave is slowly drowning me. FCSL, really looking good. I'm kinda excited anyway since they have a new Sports law program...hmmm, sun, fun and sports. Sounds good 2 me (yeah if I really have time for the sun and fun parts....LOL)

RECAP:
Rejections/acceptances- self explanatory

VALPO - on hold will admit if seats open up
OHIO NORTHERN - conditional program leading to admittance
NYLS - Accepted to conditional program leading to admittance, if decline program, app to NYLS rejected.
WIDENER - Accepted to conditional program , TAP, leading to admittance
Well, until next letter... conditional leading ... oh, sorry got carried away. seems to be the story of my life.

3/21 ohhhhhh, no mail!! WHY!?!? WHYYYY!!?!? I can't take it anymore...somebody please answer meeeee!!!!! LOL. Phew...had to get that out.

3/22 oh, I feel faint...somebody get me a big envelope please...I need an envelope...

3/23 ***sniffle*** sniffle*** another ding...waaaahhh!!!

3/29 **sniffle** I got good news...I'm sooooo happy. I needed that. THANKS UDM!!

oops..I had only put the scholarship amt per semester. It's actually $5k total for the year.

4/10 Southwestern...waitlisted!?!? Man, I gotta wait again! This time, it could take up to the month before school. Wow!

4/19 -OK, just found another way to drive myself MAD!! I found the status checker for Rutgers!!! AaaggGHH!!! But I'll Only check twice a day...OK THREE...

4/26 ok, ok ok...Waitlisted at Rutgers...better than a ding. There's a chance. How much of a chance..don't know. SOOO, all those who were accepted and won't be attending, PLEASE withdraw!! THANK YOU!!
Now, I still have to make a game plan...oh what do I do!??!

5/8 - Still pretty much in Limbo people...still in Limbo. At least I'm almost there. It's between one of my waitlisted schools and FCSL...hmmm.... Will they contact me in time? Will they make a better offer...one I can't refuse? We shall see...we shall see. D*mn...more waiting...

Good Luck!

Hope the cycle goes well!

you asked,
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

i answered. don't forget that app to regent. i am calling them next week to see if they will waive an app fee for a brotha. i would go there with a full ride. i'd go to a lot of places with a full ride. my 4th tier (free-ride) dream school is john marshall-chicago. i'd take a full ride there over most tier 2s and some tier 1s. honestly. they have journal on intellectual property law and i would love to do ip in chicago. you should send an app to catholic. they are the only school i know of that does communications law. it would give you a nice school specific statement.

Good luck
Wednesday, November 02 2005 at 07:00 PM

I feel your pain about the lsats. Good luck with all of your applications. I hope we both get in somewhere!

Good Luck!
Monday, December 12 2005 at 07:00 PM

thanks for the support. I have actually done just that, and am hoping for something nice to work out in the end. good luck with your cycle.

Thanks...
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thanks to you too! My first choice was Howard and I think to some extent it still is, but most of these schools are a great fit for me. So, hopefully I'll get several acceptance packages w/offers of scholarship money as that may be the deciding factor.

re: Complete
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

TJ, Sorry I didn't get to you sooner, but yes I called them. However, turns out HU is still waiting for me Certification letter from my undergrad. school so it's not complete...as of 1/11 anyway. I'd call them if I were you, just to make sure there's nothing else you need to get them. GSU did send a postcard though. Good luck.

Apply to these
Friday, January 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

I see you applied to FL Coastal. Try FAMU, Nova and Barry if you are interested in Florida Schools.

re: Lovely!
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thank you...yes, good luck to both of us indeed. I'm sure we both have more going on than that LSAT! :-)

re: HU
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey TJ, I hope so. I am having trouble with my cert. letter. My undergrad still didn't fax it to HUSL so I called and left a message today as well as sending an email. Now I'm really going crazy... Anyway, I hope it's indeed a positive 'notification'. Wow, we could be at HU this time next year! Did you submit Fin. aid application to HU or just the FAFSA so far?

Florida Coastal
Wednesday, December 21 2005 at 07:00 PM

Best of luck to you on your apps. I have a 146 so know what it is like to apply with a lower LSAT. Anyway, regarding Florida Coastal, I recieved viewbook after I applied and was wondering if you got anything more than a viewbook? I got the packet about the same time as you are reporting getting one.

Thanks!!
Friday, November 25 2005 at 07:00 PM

Good luck to you as well -- let's kill em' this cycle!!!

Florida Coastal
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey BrooklynPeach, Do you remember me telling you that I requested another review of my file after being rejected from Coastal. Well I just got an email from the Dean of Admissions stating that my file is being reviewed again. They apologize for not waiting on the results, etc..., and they will notify me of the decision by phone as soon as it becomes available. As you stated it never hurts to ask. Thanks for the backup. Now I will wait and see.

Thanks Peach
Wednesday, August 11 2004 at 08:00 PM

For the support, but it is (statistically) an uphill battle... You should be proud; good "creds" and more friends and "well-wishers" here, than most...

Cooley
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

I am in at Cooley. I got the letter in the mail today with 25% of the tuition covered.

Good luck
Sunday, August 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

Good luck and thanks for the incouraging statement. You and I have about the same LSAT, (well my average is worse). I wish you all the best luck in the world. Let me know how things turn out. Take care y Vaya con dios.

Good Luck
Wednesday, September 07 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for your note. I really wanted Howard, but all that matters is that I'm going to law school. You have a shot a few schools on your list. Valpo, UDM, NCCU, FCLS. What about Texas Southern? I got in with the same LSAT and lower GPA. You should apply. They're a pretty good school, and they are on the rise.

Don't worry about it
Monday, August 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

One school said no, you still got ALOT MORE still pending. Besides, you've got TONS of experience than I do, so you KNOW you'll get into a great school. You just gotta. . . . . . . . KEEP HOPE ALIVE!!!!!!

Hang In There!
Thursday, September 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

I was in the waiting phase for a long time last year and I really didn't know what to do. Make sure that you know as much as possible about the schools and that you are doing good things so that you can get an additional packet put together if you are put on a waitlist. I was waitlisted and pulled last year, but it was too late for me- thank goodness, though because I am in such a better place now.

how did you apply to widener?
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

i went complete there really fast. did you apply via lsac or their site? i would give them a call.

re: widener
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

i applied for free on their site! i was complete within 2 weeks! you're going on 6 weeks now. i think something might be wrong. i have found that if you contact schools regularly things seem to move quicker. at least it gives you something to do. they also have a status checker on the site. it was with the application. it might only work for those who applied via the widener site. if you have a list of top schools, try to stay in contact with them.

Howard's stacks
Monday, August 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

You wouldn't know if they had a stack labeled "Negros who will get money" didya?

UDM
Friday, October 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

Hey, I too keep getting a million and one mailings from UDM. As you said, everything but an acceptance letter. The admissions office told me that my admissions councelor has my file, pending delivery to the admissions committee. They said I could hear a decision anywhere from within the next week until a few months from now. As you can see in my profile, UDM is my #1 choice. I pray to the almighty God I get in. All the best with your applications.

FCSL
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey BrooklynPeach, You should hear from FCSL soon. I received a letter of acceptance yesterday. Yes, after they initially rejected me. Anyway, I called to speak with my counselor and request a packet and was told that a bulk of letters went out last week and more this week. Hopefully yours is in the mail.

Re: FCSL
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thanks BrooklynPeach, Both of our applications were complete at NCCU on1/17/06. Does anyone have any idea when they will start making decisions. It would be nice to see at least 1 person on the list with a yes or no.

Howard Tour
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey TJ, I got the official tour but we didn't go into the new library because it was so cold out and we didn't have our coats. I figured since it's new, it's pretty nice. I didn't meet any professors but I saw a lot of them and/or other faculty walking around. No I didn't go to the main campus because I had been there before, even though it was some time ago, plus which I was going to be there to see a b'ball game. They're buildings look a lot better than they used to but not sure how the inside looks. I've learned that many buildings in DC, MD, VA and surrounding areas have GREAT facades but the insides look old. Anyway, I like that Howard Law was somewhat quiet and laid back. Maybe it's the day I was there but I'm sure it's not so different on other days.

Yippee, indeed!
Tuesday, February 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the message! My friends and family are pushing me to stay within in driving distance, but will support me regardless. The flexibility at TC is desirable, too. You should hear from them soon. My turn around time was aobut 2-3 weeks, I think. Re:age...I'm entering law school with a very different perspective than the young'ens. Money is not a concern (except to repay the loans), no desire to be a partner, etc. I actually want to make a difference...one person at a time. As long as I can pass the bar in 2009, I will have met my goal. Things work out they way they should...a good lesson I've learned in my advanced years . I went to UG at Purdue. I like my visits for the yearly football game vs. ND, but no big desire to spend much time there again. I sending good thoughts your way.

Valpo
Wednesday, December 21 2005 at 07:00 PM

I was waitlisted and not the admissions pending. However, I am also going to be considered for their part time program as well. Best of luck to you

canigetin
Wednesday, December 21 2005 at 07:00 PM

I am really hoping to get in somewhere...good luck to you too. I will keep an eye on your progress since we have similar numbers. Good Luck!

waiting
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

sucks

Congrats!
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

on your first acceptance. how does it feel to KNOW your going to law school? good luck with the remaining apps.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

I'M SO HAPPY FOR YOU. YOU'RE GOING TO LAW SCHOOL.

yeah
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

we're gonna do this. have you thought about the CLEO program? i know, i know i must sound like a troll but i feel strongly about programs like cleo and seo. i really believe these are the types of stones many of us leave unturned. i think that most of the time it's because we were not aware they even existed. good luck with the rest of the apps. hey, of these apps what's your "i'll cry if i get in school?" oh, tell me you had a party after that big ole envelope was found in you mailbox. :)

Future Classmate?
Tuesday, February 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on TC!!! I'm very happy for you. The more I think about, the more pluses it has. Maybe we will be classmates come Sept! ?! I'll be waiting for your other accepts!

Howard
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

Did you apply for te ABA Scholarship that howard sent out in an e-mail? Just wondering if ppl with low lsat/gpa have a chance at the $ and how many ppl actually get the scholarship.

Addicted Huh!!!
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

I see you. People are going to think this is crazy, but you and I know the inside joke. Wasn't that amazing the turn around of that guy/girl. His conviction is powerful. Have a great day.

thanks
Wednesday, January 25 2006 at 07:00 PM

waiting does suck!!! But we will make it... email me

Just coming thru
Monday, December 19 2005 at 07:00 PM

To show some love and comissserate with you about the wait. Why must we wait so? Good luck and congrats!!!

:-/
Sunday, February 19 2006 at 07:00 PM

hey just writing back...yeah I forgot when I submitted them but they were all early January... PS.. NYLS rejected me which I forgot to put down. Just thought you would be interested since we have similar stats.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

Could it be that we will meet at FCSL and make it through together? I think we should officially withdraw from Ohio Northern. I'm sooooo happy for you. I guess I have to put a dollar in the jar, because LSN was suppose to be offlimits this weekend. Oh well. It was worth it. Congratulations my friend.

RE: Comments
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

TJ, What happened to your page? Is there a something withthe system or maybe I overlooked it. Anyway, who knows what that person was thinking? Perhaps he's assuming there's a reverse 'minority' rule or something. Probably considered minority at HUSL. Regardless, just like anywhere else, that doesn't automatically mean you're in! Plus which, like you said, if he really doesn't care to be there, then why apply. I'm not sure if that's what he intended by his comments though. Oh well, we'll just have to keep in mind how qualified we are regardless of numbers! Thanks for keeping me posted.

I needed that....
Thursday, August 11 2005 at 08:00 PM

I needed to hear that I can make it through despite my shortcomings. I need to know that there is a will for me to excel and a way for me to gain. Thank you so much.

re. Hey man
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the encouraging words. Congrats on your accepts!

How about that ...
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

NCCU decisions. They are starting to roll in. Acceptances/rejections and all. Check it out.

sorry
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

...those NCCU decisions.

Congrats!

Thanks. I am indeed happy to know I'm going somewhere. As far as my first choice, I really change time to time only based on where I want to live. It goes from me wanting to stay in NY area and then maybe just going south. I'm just going to wait and see what happens. Guess I'm just playing it safe for now...for feelings' sake...LOL...

I'm sorry about....
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

Howard and Emory. Their loss.

I understand your frustration
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

Listen, you will be attending a wonderful school this Fall. Most importantly, it will be one that can see past the numbers and see what you have t offer their school. Hold your head up and move on. I'm taking those same words to heart after reviewing all the profiles of those accepted at the Univ. of SC. Hmmmmmm...... as much as I hate to admit it. I think it was partyguy708 who summed it up for me as to why I could not get in to USC. We'll talk about it later. However, if you have some time take a look at it and it will be very obvious as to why they are on the top ten list. Have a wonderful day.

so sorry
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

about howard brook. that really makes me sad. you know, maybe they just were not good enough for you. you know what you should do? when you become a big rich & famous atty (like i know you will), write howard law an annual check for $1 and let them know that the 0s are missing because they rejected you. you have a lot of apps still pending so keep your chin up and get ready to ride the next wave.

Thank you ...
Wednesday, August 11 2004 at 08:00 PM

.. for noticing ! And, in having so many applications still in "limbo" I do agree with you: "the waiting doth sucketh, hugely."

J ville...et al..
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey TJ. Yeah, I was wondering where ya went. So I guess the email thing knocked you off the LSN or did you just remove your profile? Anyway, so what did you like about U. GA? I was hoping it's a nice school, although I haven't heard from them yet. I was going to plan a visit some time this month too...actually visit all the GA schools I had applied to but with the rejection from Emory, that's one less school to visit. As for J Ville, I've only been to Orlando when I went to disney world...LOL. So, I have no clue what the rest of Florida looks like. I do know that I'd enjoy that warm weather since I really hate the cold. Well, if you do end up in FCSL (did you get accepted? can't check your profile anymore), then that would make you, me and Proudmother...That ain't bad at all! What happened with Howard, nothing yet, huh? Well, either way, hope all is going well for ya. Hope to hear from ya soon.

i think that
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

this is your month. you should probably be hearing some good news in the following couple of weeks. take care and as always good luck on those apps.

back home and online
Wednesday, March 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, I am just under TJ now because when I tried to change my email I typed it in wrong and since emails are used for verifications I can never actually verify the change I made. Did you get an email about the Howard open house? I doubt I can go but it would have been nice to attend. No official letters from Howard yet. I just got home today and had a pile of other mail. Do you think you will play the transfer game next year? I am not throwing the option out. TJ

GSU
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

Good luck on GSU, i'm in the same boat...a decision was made on my file today..have you tried to login to GoSolar?...I did and it let me in but said nothing about an acceptance...try it and see what it says for you...let me know the results...im so anxious for both of us!

hey.....
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

i'm so sorry about emory, uga, and howard. that is truly sad. you ok? that took 5 seconds to write and that's as long as you should allow yourself to feel down. "we fall down to get up!" this is still your month. there are still 12 pendings up there. you still have 12 oportunities to do that 'acceptance dance.' i just wish i could see you do it. :-)

Re: Charlotte
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

Girl, that's okay indeed. I have a definate thing and that's all I wanted. It's great to see you back here. Have a great day.

hey,
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

thanks for the comment on my profile. i do think this is the month. i really have gotten to the point where i want to know one way or the other. at the same time i am prepared to wait as long as it takes to get good news. this thing is just so crazy. the sad thing is that i might be going through all this again next year, as a transfer applicant. if you do go to fl coastal, i have heard that the top students have pretty good transfer options. question: why no app to cath u? i always wondered why you didn't apply to catholic. i hear they have a great communications law program. good luck on those pendings. i really hope you get into ru-newark.

GSU
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

I am so sorry about GSU. I know you really wanted something in Georgia. Well, FCSL isn't bad and you have VALPO and the others. I received 2 packets from them this week. One was a booklet and the other was a DVD. FCSL is looking good to me too. We'll see, I still have 30 days to decide and receive some more acceptances.

hey,
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

i know this one hurt. well if you do end up at fl coastal, knock it out the park! hey, there are worse places to spend a couple of years. i'd still hold out on udm and ru-n. you might even get some good news from 'bama. take care and as always good luck on those apps.

thanx man
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

for YOUR pep talk. ;-) i'm over it. it's just the waitlists that are killin me. they're giving me bad dreams. i need to find a job (better than the ocurrent one). that should take my mind off this stuff.

Keep holdin' on
Sunday, March 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

you still have a lot of apps out there...dont get discouraged. And if you end up not going where you wanted to just remember there is always the option to transfer! Just rock the 1st year!

Thanks
Thursday, January 26 2006 at 07:00 PM

I hope to hear from Widener soon, good news of course.. I am happy for you. Boy this waiting is humbling...

When did they say the program starts in May?

Thanks...
Wednesday, September 07 2005 at 08:00 PM

for your note. Congrats on your acceptances also. I am pretty much decided on Drexel at this point.

FCSL $$$$
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

I din't know you got $$$ also. Congratulations. WOW, I wish I could get some money. Anyway, did you get the invitation for the minority recruitment weekend? Rooms are paid for and looking at the schedule meals will be also. Do you think you will attend?

FCSL
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

No need to run to the box. Instead you should be checking your email like crazy for the invite. That's how I got mine. Oh Lord, I know you will. Sorry, I didn't mean to cause a transfer in your addiction. LOL! Well, I'll email it to you so you can see what I'm talking about. It was emailed by the same Dean who has been apologizing since receipt of my review requests. I'll tell you what he's been sending all kinds of things in the mail trying to get me to send in that deposit and attend. I need to hear from those other schools, but I can't help but think that this may be a sign that I'll be in Florida this Fall. Oh well, what he needs to be sending me is some $$$. Even 5 will do. LOL! I'll bug you tomorrow.

Widener
Friday, February 10 2006 at 07:00 PM

I was just in your area yesterday. Saw a lot of Brooklyn...at a very slow pace along 278 at 4:00PM. Damned Mapquest. I noticed you have decided to not go to the Widener Harrisburg TAP. I just heard from them that they are waiting for spaces to become available and if they do, they might offer me a spot. If you haven't done so, I would appreciate it if you would let them know. As well as anybody else who might see this. This is a rather unexpected form of begging that the application cycle brings out in us! Thanks and good luck with the rest of the cycle!

hey,
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

how's it going? edit for my former post: i thnk that should say 5000 cases. sorry :-) i'm still pyaying you get into udm. good luck w/ the apps.

Congrats
Thursday, January 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

On FCSL, and good luck with Rutgers. I like the fact that Rutgers allows a different approach to the application process, and I took advantage of it. I'll keep my fingers crossed! Where do you live/work now?

Oh yeah
Thursday, January 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

Check the stats on that NYLS program. I did that on one school's program, and found out that only about 25% of those admitted into the conditional program actually passed and were allowed into the Fall class. NY is a great area to go BIGLAW, something that may not be possible down in FL though. That may be something to consider. There are many more opportunities up there if you like the NYC area.

Hello
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

Yes, I am still holding on. I hope to hear something soon. Talk to you later.

FCSL...here we come!
Monday, October 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

I've been busy researching apartments in Jax too. I'm actually anxious to leave since I'm in St. Louis, MO and the weather is terrible right now. I planned on moving right before the Fall semester begins but May is becoming more of an option. I would love to chat with you sometime. Feel free to email me off board. Take care!

Congrats!
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

on your acceptances...you still have a few more aps open...good luck! We need to get together and boycott GSU and SHU because we were both rejected lol!!! I'll be prayin for you on those other pending aps...jtr

Good Luck
Tuesday, March 21 2006 at 07:00 PM

Good luck with your apps!! Praying does help to an extent..I'm still praying right now

Thanks Girl
Tuesday, March 21 2006 at 07:00 PM

I do want to stay in NY because I'm so close to my family but leaving wouldn't be hard for me...time for a change of scenery..just praying i get in somewhere i can be comfortable going...I don't even go to the mailbox anymore..its too stressful...i know these schools not gonna respond to me til like mid April or end of April..maybe even May...don't know why they taking so long...chile waiting does suck...

Thanks!
Sunday, February 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the support! I would love the extra books you have...That is very thought of you ; ) I seem to have a mental block when it comes to the LSAT...I have taken the Princeton course and I even had an additional private tutor...So much for that...The next thing is to do it alone...Locked in a library room for 6 hours a day for 2 months straight...I plan on retaking the LSAT again in June 2006...I will keep you posted and thanks for the support. Maybe we can arrange something for the delivery of the books. Let me know?

NW it is
Friday, November 25 2005 at 07:00 PM

brooklyn peach, NW it is. I sent in my deposit last week. Thanks for the message. Good luck to you with the rest of the cycle and congrats on the money from FCSL. BNM

thanks
Sunday, November 20 2005 at 07:00 PM

good luck to you too. And btw, I did some time at HIU too.. back in the 90's. Go Pirates!

Charleston
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

I hope so. I would love to be in Florida also. I wish I would see what you do for real soon. I'm exhausted by this wait. Yesterday, I only came to this site about 10 times. LOL. Don't laugh, because that's 10 compared to about 50 or more any other day. I'll talk to you soon by email.

UDM
Friday, September 02 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on UDM...gonna go? Do you mind telling me how they notified you? good luck the rest of the way

!
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

congrats on udm! guess what? we might be neighbors! with my offer from toledo i'll be like a hop, skip, and a jump from you. toledo is so close that detroiters get in-state tuition. really! how about that!

Hi - UDM
Wednesday, December 14 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey. We chatted a bit last year, I think... Are you going to go to UDM? I was accepted there also. I'm curious about what your thoughts on the school were. Congrats! Great luck to you! =) (Hope this doesn't double post. My first "submit" seemed to not go through.)

Congratulations!
Friday, October 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

Hello there, Please accept my congratulations on your acceptance at UDM!!! You must be very proud. How did they notify you? e-mail, snail mail, etc... All the best!

What's going on?
Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

I have 4 out and no word yet. Am I suppose to believe that hearing absolutely nothing is perhaps a good thing. BEfore getting any word from your schools did they make any contact with you at all? This is driving me nuts. I would give anything to hear at least you're in the conditional program. Three of the four have them and I applied for all. Enough of this. I'm done.

UD-Mercy
Wednesday, December 14 2005 at 07:00 PM

Very cool. Well, you still have others to hear from it looks like. Good luck! I'm also stoked about UDM. The administration is friendly and helpful. I've also received positive feedback from current UDM students happy with their choice of law school. I believe it is one of the better lower tier schools. As far as Detroit goes, I'm struggling with finding a place to live. I did visit Detroit briefly last year in November. The city is rough and definitely has its issues; however, there is a lot of redevelopment going on and certain parts of the downtown area (Greektown, near Wayne and UDM) are fine. The school is across from Renaissance Center (GM's HQ) and is a decent area. If you are ok with a commute (and I'm wondering how well this California boy will do driving in snow) I hear Dearborn (20 minutes) and Royal Oak (15 minutes) are great suburbs to live. Even Grosse Point, which is just a few minutes east/northeast of UDM/downtown Detroit, is fine. The facilities (library, building) are old, but some people like the look and feel. UDM is building a new campus somewhere. (near the river front?) I don't know how long they've been at it and when it will be complete. This is second-hand info, so I'm not too certain. The dean is a Harvard grad who is working hard for the school. I think their alumni could be a little more financially supportive. They are about 80% tuition-dependent - but so are most private law schools. BTW, I love NYC and Brooklyn. Keep in touch. I may see you at UDM's orientation!

hey,
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

i just gave toledo the 'A' for this cycle. i can't wait until the fall. of these acceptances and pendings, what's your top three?

UDC...
Tuesday, February 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

the response will not be any slower. I dreaded filling out another app., especially, having to write an essay, but they took the time to ask me to apply and the location would be great. I contacted all of my pending schools last week and most all said I should hear by April 15. Only a few days left. Finally!! Any decision where you will be attending? (Hint: I think you would not be happy at Ohio Northern - from someone that grew up in that part of Ohio). Keep in touch! Maybe we can meet halfway in Ann Arbor for lunch (or at Cooley).

Everyone was nice
Friday, January 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

I thought everyone I met was nice. Several professors spoke to us. They seemed helpful. The information on the curriculum was very promising. Another turn off was the price. The federal max student loan doesn't cover tuition. I was expecting almost perfection based on what they sent me. The students seem happy and had no complaints. I just don't think they are for me.

BrooklynPeach...
Monday, December 05 2005 at 07:00 PM

All the best to you as well. It's been a long application cycle; I'm glad it's over. Enjoy your law school career. All the best to you and yours.

Friday, October 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

Hello there, Did you get into tho summer program at UDM, where you start in the summer or will you be directly starting in the fall. Have a good weekend!

FCSL
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the tidbits on FCSL! I haven't heard a decision back from them yet. But since I live here, I'm thinking that I might just go ahead and schedule a law school tour---this way I can really see what this school's all about and can quit guessing and making up stuff based on what I've heard! :) But all in all, if you are considering FCSL, I would definitely say that Jacksonville is one of the most beautiful cities around! It is not too big and not too small. And there is always something to do here. The location is pretty central to other places also (Atlanta, Miami, Orlando, Tallahassee, S. Carolina etc.)! So you could definitely make some nice weekend getaways! If you do decide to go to school here be sure to live on the Southside of town---it's nicer, safer and that's where everything is, incl. the law school. Good Luck and keep us all posted on what you decide to do. I appreciate your support. It's nice and comforting knowing that someone else is going through the same situation as yourself. Talk to you later!

Thank you
Friday, October 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thank you very much for your kind words! They mean a lot to me. I am overjoyed about your success! Bye.

if you need to know anything about Valpo, Im from Northwest Indiana so I know the area well, and let me know what you decide

Rutgers
Tuesday, April 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

Yeah I seriously would like to attend Rutgers too. I thought about applying to schools like Cooley, e.t.c., but the reality is that I'm not willing to invest in a school that I will not be happy at. Happy meaning, knowing that there would be "reasonable" job prospects post graduation. I know that transferring is always an option but not guaranteed. This process is just ridiculous. TRUST ME I do not want to retake the LSAT but these schools place so much emphasis on the darn test. I really can't afford the $1000+ that a prep course would cost but my original self study method didn't prove to be very successful. Do you have any idea whether there's any kind of deadline for responses? Is there a chance that I could roll into June w/o a response? Funny thing is I saw your profile earlier and saw where you found the Rutgers online status checker. I then decided to peruse the web and located it. THANKS FOR INTRODUCING ME TO MY FIRST HIT OF CRACK!! LOL!! And goooooood luck. Maybe we'll be fellow 1L's in the fall. P.S. I'm from Brooklyn too. I'm sick of VA so I'm trying to make my way back to the New York City area.

re: I guess
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thanks Peach. Yeah, it looks like Stetson for me. I am heading down in July again to secure a place to live. My wife is also going to be down there job hunting. Good luck to you and hope they dont keep you waiting much longer!

FCSL

Hey!
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, I called Dayton to let them know that it's on the way and had the guy note my file! And I'm going to call again after 12pm to make sure that my express delivery got there okay. Good looking out though! Oh and of course I got your really long email, but that's okay b/c I sent you a really long email back!! LOL Why'd you withdraw from NYSL? My cousin currently goes there and is going on her 2nd year. If you get accepted into Dayton, you should consider going there! (well, basically since I'm going there! he, he,he) Let me know how that goes. But anyways thanks for the good luck on FL St. Holla back on the email! :)

Touro
Tuesday, April 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey, Rutgers didn't take me but Touro did so it looks like I'll be packing up for NY. I'm going to live with my grandfather for free so that's one less thing that I have to worry about. I'm nervous and excited because I had already decided that I was going to reapply next year. Guess not huh? I know God has a plan so for now, I'm going to roll with the punches. Good luck to you in your 1L, I know we all have a bumpy road ahead.

FCSL
Thursday, March 01 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hey there - How is Coastal treating you? I might be there this fall 07....Not sure if you are still checking this but since you DID say you were an LSN addict, LOL I thought I'd try...... question - why did you pick FCSL over NCCU? Was it a location preference? Did you visit both schools before you made a decision? thanks much!
