  • Pitt...maybe
  • Thursday, January 22 2009 at 03:34 PM

W&L is going to be tough to pass up!! I don't know if Pitt would be on my list after that acceptance. I just go in to Rutgers which might bump Pitt a little, and if they give me $$...Pitt's done! But I'm still waiting for some 4th quarter sleeper teams:-) And of course I've gotta hold out for Yale,lol

maybe if the 6.5 was in the 60 and were talkin about 2 reps of 225 on overhead squats lol.. in all seriousness congrats on the 4 acceptances, I applied to a few of the same

- tarheels19
  • 6.5?? Lol..
  • Tuesday, February 03 2009 at 10:38 AM

You don't want run no 6.5 bro lol...I'm a d lineman and I was in the 4.9 range..lol.. What's new with the cycle? I've yet to hear from anybody but I only applied at the end of December...

- hoodcelebrity
  • I agree!!!
  • Tuesday, February 03 2009 at 01:27 PM

I tried to stress that strongly in my addendum. I spent well over 50 hours a week preparing. Once you sign that football scholarship, It's like signing your life away. I wish adcomms would realize how tough it is to play at the collegiate level. Especially at the Division1a level. I think my top few would be Seattle U, U of San Francisco, U of Oregon and UNLV.

- hoodcelebrity

  • Friday, February 13 2009 at 06:44 AM

I'm pretty much ready to send in my $50 deposit to UGA at this point! I went for a visit, have received freindly phone calls, and got a little scholarship to help tuck me in at night. Why not right? lol I don't know anything about Pitt, W&L is super tiny in the middle of nowhere, and I like Wake. The girl from UGA told me when she saw there weren't any hair or nail salons in Lexington she knew where she was going. And that's all I needed to hear lol

  • Thursday, February 26 2009 at 09:21 AM

yes, i think i'm going to ride on all the waitlists so far, except for Cardozo's. i'm thinking of sending Columbia a LOCI, even though chances are slim that i'll actually get off. congrats on your cycle so far, too! have you decided on a school yet?

Hey congrats on Wake Forest it is my top choice. Been in committee review for a month. Where you thinking of going?

- Palma
  • Friday, February 27 2009 at 01:04 PM

Haha... Thanks very much. I'm sure to withdraw it if I get in. But that's an "if". It's been such a crap shoot (ex, waitlisted at BU & GW but accepted at UVA & Berk)!!! Go figure! Best of luck though!

- CG878
  • Saturday, February 28 2009 at 08:19 AM

Haha... believe me, I'd sell all my spots (if it worked that way) and put the money toward the out of state tuition I'm going to have to pay! I'm sure you'll get into USC though! No worries...

- CG878
  • congrats to you as well!
  • Monday, March 09 2009 at 07:22 PM

hey thanks a lot! congrats to you as well on your u wisc acceptance. hmm its hard to say what top choice is, so many schools to hear from and i really need to see fin aid packages. i'll check the fordham waitlist as long as it seems like a good idea to do so. how about you? whats your top choice? looks like you have some pretty great options yourself.

  • Wash U
  • Tuesday, March 31 2009 at 11:11 AM

Yeah Wash U's tuition deposit is due tomorrow. I just paid it online today. It's refundable as long as you let the admissions committee know by May 1 that you won't be enrolling. Sooo it's my back-up plan in case Vandy doesn't come through. W&L and Wisconsin are pretty good schools. Is there one you're leaning towards more?

- SpelmanDSTGirl12
  • Thursday, April 02 2009 at 09:37 AM

You've probably already thought of this, but I think one of the most important things to consider is where you eventually want to practice. Money should come later down on the list. Yes debt can be scary but you have two great schools so you most certainly find a job. I am not sure what type of law you want to get into but that is also an important factor. At Wisconsin, you will dominate the legal market in the area you'd probably be able to maneuver around to Illinois and Indiana as well. But at Washington & Lee you'd be near D.C., which is one of the top 3 legal markets in the nation, and is good for all types of law. Plus they have the new Third Year Law Difference, which actually helps to prepare you to become a practicing lawyer (very crucial). So do you want to be stuck in the Midwest for a good chunk of your career or stuck in Virginia for 3 years with the possibility of moving elsewhere. Good Luck. Here is a site I found helpful for potential job prospects. www.nalpdirectory.com You can check the ones in each area to see how many people from each school work there.

- swmontgomery
  • Thursday, April 02 2009 at 01:47 PM

That's pretty cool that we want to do the same thing and are in virtually the same boat (Loyola didn't offer me any scholarship money). I'm pretty sure that I want to eventually come back to LA so Loyola is looking pretty nice to me right now. Chicago-Kent is great, I think actually going there and talking to the admissions staff and a couple of professors helped me. But, if you want to practice in Chicago, I'd say Wisconsin, but you are going up against the powerhouses in Chicago, but you will be fine. Plus Fole & Lardner is big in Milwaukee and they have ties to the Packers. Good Luck and keep in touch. Sean

  • Tuesday, April 07 2009 at 03:10 PM

Yeah, the "hold" at Wash U is better than the "waitlist." Since they over-admitted so many people last year they're just being really picky this year. I'm pretty certain you can get off the list though. Good Luck!

  • Wisconsin over W&L
  • Thursday, April 09 2009 at 12:20 PM

I think that you got a full ride plus you did not have to take the bar if you practice in Wisconsin

- minnesotagurl
  • WISCONSIN
  • Friday, April 10 2009 at 07:42 AM

Well, if you want the best shot possible to practice in DC then choose W&L! If you're thinking about Chicago, go Wisconsin all the way! Personally, I'd choose Wisconsin b/c there's nothing around W&L (it's in the middle of nowhere). However, I was shocked when I found out how beautiful the town of Madison is (and it's right on the water). Wisconsin seems a little more enjoyable!

- CG878
  • Friday, April 10 2009 at 10:02 AM

Sounds like a reasonable plan. Hopefully, I'll see you in a little over a year! All the best!

  • Tuesday, April 14 2009 at 04:40 PM

  • Tuesday, April 14 2009 at 08:36 PM

i am so shocked that in 2009 people still use words like nig but like it was too far to just go ahead and type what he really wanted to say..... as a white chick who dated a black guy I used to hate when my guy would say that "whitey" is still racist but i saw it when we dated and saw it again tonight. Man god help us if that guy is going to be a leader in any community. Best of luck - guess i couldn't help but send you a shout out and express some outrage. Good luck and what goes around comes around - hopefully, that guy will trip over his own ignorance.

Where are you leaning towards? I think USF will be a great fit for me. I hear nothing but great things about the school and the city. I'm going to visit next week..Just hoping for a little schollie money!

- hoodcelebrity
  • Thursday, April 16 2009 at 06:10 AM

Haha...if Northwestern surprises me with an April/May gift I just might be in Chicago. If it's any consolation I hear Virginia warms up in the summer. I am not sure about Wisconsin though. At least it'll motivate you to study.

"To other URMs, especially blacks..." No, what you should say is "To blacks only" Latinos don't get the ridiculous boosts that Black people. We don't get a boost at all, actually. So please, learn this: we might all be "URMs", but we're not all the "same", don't fool the public because for some reason they seem to think that we get the same boosts, when this is completely and utterly false.

- anonymous
  • Friday, April 24 2009 at 12:31 PM

Wassup man. So what school did you send a seat deposit to? The anonymous person who left a comment is truly ignorant. A couple of my applications aked: Are you Latino/a? If not, check your race. Anyways, I think it's pretty official with me going to Loyola.

- swmontgomery
  • to anonymous
  • Friday, April 24 2009 at 12:34 PM

I never said we are all the same and we get the same boost, so don't put words into my mouth. Latino's don't get a boost at all? You can't be serious. There are plenty of Latino's (some on this site) that have gotten into t14 schools because of a boost. Check your facts before you start poppin off at the mouth son.

- DaBrooklynKid
  • Friday, April 24 2009 at 05:43 PM

Everything is good over here. Wisconsin seems pretty lax. I guess they really want to get people there and keep them there, with the diploma privilege and what not. Well it seems like you want to transfer, so good luck with that. But maybe you will really like it. Would you stay at WUSTL if you got in?

ugh, believe me, i'm still kicking myself for not getting all my apps done sooner... i was really overwhelmed by the whole process (for a variety of reasons) i was initially tempted to wait and reapply next year (especially since i think i could have done better on the lsat) but i'm not convinced it would be worth it to wait a year. i'm really excited about fordham, and if a waitlist comes through it'll be icing on the cake :) i'm a procrastinator til the bitter end, wasting time on the internet instead of finally finishing all my LOCIs...

- whatthe
  • Friday, May 08 2009 at 11:56 AM

Ya it's all about trying to network. There are going to be a string of no's, but it's all about getting your foot in the door. I was told that people are much more willing to help you now rather than when you are just desperate for a job. Even talk to your future classmates. We all aspire to be great lawyers and knowing them will be extremely beneficial down the road. I think that is the only potentially bad thing about transferring, as you lose some of the strong 1L connections.

  • Friday, June 26 2009 at 08:11 AM

I believe I will choose Oregon. Their basketball and football program have tons of players getting drafted. Not to mention, Nike was established there. I personally know Ernie Kent, OU's head basketball coach. This could be big.... I also believe with me wanting to be an entreprenuer and sports agent, less debt is the way to go. Not to mention they have a better rep and richer history. I don't think I can turn down the better school that is also a lot cheaper. Off tuition alone and living expenses, I will be saving around 40 k....

- hoodcelebrity

  • Friday, June 26 2009 at 06:42 PM

I chose OREGON. It was too good to pass up. Now I have to focus and make the most of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will try my best to build some NIKE contacts!!! I'll have a chance to scout PAC-10 players every week..I'm excited. Not the big city life, but it will allow me to grind and be succesful...
