Extra Curricular Information

Welcome to my profile.

I have extensive work experience in the legal fields of litigation and regulatory work. My background is diverse (I am a dual national). Looking forward to going back to school and taking my career to the next level.

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

My #s are back up.

12/10/06 - First Sign of the Apocalypse - I am going to law school.

Bitter-Sweet day. My dream school waitlisted me. Not a rejection, but not the acceptance I was hoping for either. Time to hit the phones and start sending continued letter of interest, etc.

12/30/06 - Visited Drexel Law. To say that I was impressed would be an understatement. This is now my #1 choice. Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for good things!

My next choices are, in order, McGeorge, Loyola, & Detroit (which is already in the bag). So far so good.

01/05/2007 - Rec'd Acceptance from Widener! My choice of Campuses and Programs (FT/PT). Awesome feeling to have options!

01/13/07 - Rec'd Acceptance from St. Thomas U. Don't know too much about this school. Time to take a closer look! =)

01/23/07 - ACCEPTED! HOLY SH*T! (Drexel)

01/25/07 - Drexel called, and offered me $22,000 a year. Officially the best day of my life!

01/28/07 - Widener extended an offer of $30,000 worth of scholarship money.

01/30/07 - Loyola NO placed me on the ol' waitlist. Bummer. I really liked the school, and it would have been an amazing place to study.

02/02/07 - Waitlisted at Howard. Might need to pay D.C. a visit. I really like this school.

03/12/07 - Accepted Students Day @ Drexel was great. I am set on this school. I will withdraw from my other acceptances. Regardless of what comes in from my other schools, I will be at Drexel next year.

05/01/07 - Rec'd letter Loyola w/ acceptance and $4,500/year scholarship. I spoke with the admissions office confirming that I was withdrawing, and I am already committed to going to Drexel.

Does anyone have any information on Western State? I have looked at their numbers and it seems I have a strong chance at getting accepted there, but I don't know very much about the school. Also, their ABA accredidation is provissional...

not sure that i'll apply to the entire t14, but i'm applying to lots of schools just for peace of mind. I'm not firm on anything until I have an official LSAT score though so this list could change drastically in october

- dondiva07

  • Wednesday, August 23 2006 at 01:15 PM

score drops after 3 years. And one thing to consider is the ABA now allows schools to report the high score, which means that most schools will only consider your highest score. I would suggest taking another prep course, and retaking in October. That would be the wise thing to do. Good luck my friend.

That's funny. I talked with the folks at LSAC and they said 5. I am pretty certain about that. My old score is still posted on my profile. You are right about retaking the LSAT, I should. I just hate the idea of having to do all that crap again.

Hey amigo, good luck this cycle. I would apply to more schools if I was you, you never know!! Hey try some tier 2's you might just make it being a URM. Also send out some more safey applications,try out the schools that accepted me! Good luck this cycle.

  • Friday, August 25 2006 at 03:37 PM

Thanks for the kind words and I hope you make it into the school of your dreams! i do think that it helps if you apply early but with the new LSAT rule, most schools will only take your highest score, so by all means, do what you have to do and retake!!! good luck!

- secondchance
  • score does drop in 5
  • Friday, August 25 2006 at 03:38 PM

by the way... i had taken lsat ages ago and it gets purged in 5 unless you expressly request that it be kept on file... again, with the new rule, your high score is all that matters for most schools.

  • Wednesday, August 30 2006 at 12:31 PM

My priority is finding some warmer weather than Chicago. Any CA school would work, but I have my heart set on Wake Forest, which may be a reach, but according to their literature they take the HIGHEST LSAT, so I may be have a shot. Are you looking to apply to Loyola Chi ?

- terrapinstation
  • Thanks...
  • Wednesday, August 30 2006 at 03:11 PM

..for the comment. I see you're trying to stay in CALI which is nice. There are lots of schools there. My only advice (I also applied last cycle) is to apply as early as you can. You have a unique background so I think schools will find that interesting. As for Loyola N.O. I also hear good things about, I'd like to visit it something though.

  • re: UofD Mercy
  • Thursday, August 31 2006 at 03:44 PM

I haven't had a chance to visit UofD Mercy's campus yet, but I have lived in Metro Detroit my whole life, and been in the area around the campus. From their website, it looks like the Law campus is right in downtown - by the Renaissance Center. Contrary to popular belief Detroit downtown can be quite nice. Especially the area around the RenCen. The past few years things have been revitalized and with the Superbowl here last year, downtown got a major makeover. As far as the schools actual rep - I'm not sure yet. I think the rep in Michigan is pretty good, but if you will be going back to CA to practice law, I doubt most people out there will know much about the school, but that's just my guess. Anyways, good luck with all your applications!

  • UD Mercy
  • Sunday, September 03 2006 at 10:43 AM

I haven't heard much (good or bad) about UDM but the Detroit area is a great area to be for immigration because of the proximity to Canada. I wouldn't doubt that they have a great immigration program. And there is a US Immigration service centre right there too. Based on your profile it seems like a great match for you! Also, you can get a joint both a JD and an LLB (Canadian law degree) at the same time in only 3 years if you want enhance your international marketability. Good luck!

  • Friday, September 08 2006 at 01:37 PM

The reason I didn't go last year was that I really wanted to get into Minnesota, and I had a pretty interesting job lined up. I also applied very late in the cycle and I think that hurt me. So I decided to work a year and reapply. What have you heard about Roger Williams and Pepperdine? They are some places to which I may yet apply.

To the question you posed to me, i didn't go to Yale then because there was something i wanted to complete ion school this year, my hope was to be bale to complete and then go to the best school possible. i had hoped that would be Yale but as of now that will be Columbia.

Well...I'd say Mercer was #1 but that's my reach haha. Like you, I really like Loyola NO. But a close second would have to be St. Mary's. You've applied to many schools so hopefully you'll have some options!

- nextime
  • thanks...T2
  • Saturday, September 16 2006 at 11:14 AM

I believe I will add some T2 schools to my application pool...Some admissions professionals have indicated to me that a UGPA that old is very stale. I read your profile and you have an interesting background...Spain, Big East college, and then living on the west coast. As far as the LSAT... I used Kaplan and then PowerScore for the LSAT prep and I found that PowerScore provided me a substantially better education and strategy for taking the LSAT. Although I scored a few points below my practice test scores, I account this to personal test anxieties, etc. that can never be simulated during test prep. I would strongly suggest that you attend at least one of the LSAC Forums and discuss your application data with each school. I went last year and found it very helpful, and I plan on attending the one this year in Atlanta. I'm sure they will be much more helpful this year since I will be able to provide them with an LSAT score...that was literally the first question everyone asked me was have I taken the LSAT...if not, when are you taking it.

  • my rankings
  • Thursday, October 05 2006 at 11:52 AM

I would definately LOVE to be accepted at UofM, but even if I get in there I'm not totally sure I would go there. I know people will be screaming "how could you turn down a t14 and go to a TTT or T4 instead??" But, IF I do get in there I will serisouly have to weigh all the factors - which are mainly the fact that I will be practicing law only in Michigan and does UofM's national reputation really matter that much to me over local reputations, especially for the cost. However, I am putting the cart before the horse. Let's get that score back first! I feel ok about my performance, but it's hard to say, I now wish I had tried to guess my practice test scores so I would know how good of a judge I am of my performance. I was scoring in the mid to high 160s on practice tests, so if I get below a 165, I'll be very disappointed. And if I get below a 168 I may not even bother applying to UofM. As far as coming down to a choice between Ave and UofD...Ave's reputation for an awesome faculty interests me, but to be honest the whole debacle with Tom Monaghan and maybe moving to Florida scares me. Reading up on the board of directors vs. dean vs. faculty vs. alumni makes for quite the soap opera. On the side of UofD, there seem to be a lot of UofD alumni working/partners for the large firms in MI, so that's promising. I'm trying to hold off judgements on any school until the acceptances come rolling in (as hard as that may be)! Wow, sorry for the excessively long comment!

You must be an expert at misconstruing information.

If you have an angle, play it. Hmm, maybe I should fax you my resume. But since you dont have the guts to use your LSN name, and you posted anonymously, I cant do that. What makes you so angry?

I don't know about you, but I'm thinking Mardi Gras would be a great time to visit the campus. I have a friend from the area that tells me I need to come and get the full New Orleans experience (sans hurricanes of course), so I'm hoping things work out. I'm not interested in schools in California at all, but I must say Pepperdine looks gorgeous from the pics I've seen. You've got some good schools on your list and I think you'll be pretty happy wherever you end up.

Just some friendly advice. I like Widener and I am sending them an application. Temple is just much cheaper, and if you are a into rankings, Temple has them beat.

  • Sunday, October 22 2006 at 10:33 AM

Campbell is ABA accredited and their regional reputation in NC is great. It is a private school so the tuition is high, but they offer scholarships. They are very friendly. Elon and Charlotte are new schools but are going to be promising in the NC area I've heard. I applied to Charlotte last year and was accepted and awarded a SUBSTANTIAL financial aid award. Either way, good luck to you. Keep your fingers crossed. --Betty

  • Friday, October 27 2006 at 02:01 PM

Hey man, yeah I took an LSAT course. Testmasters. Definately helped. What really helped though, was that I became familiar with questions and how repetitve everything became. What really wasn't impressive what that I got a 10/28 on my reading comp. I could never improve on that for whatever reason. If you can't get in anywhere for the fall, DEFINATELY apply for the spring. Good luck

I did get something from Duke today. Just in time too because I've got a crazy amount of school work to make it through this weekend, and an acceptance was a definite pick me up. We're on the second leg of our Loyola race now: the race for acceptance/rejection/waitlist/whatever. I'll keep checking in to see how things progress for you, but I think you'll have some good surprises this cycle.

  • Transfer Reasons
  • Friday, November 03 2006 at 06:08 AM

Legallatin...reasons why I transferred are... 1: PSU is a T2 with regional appeal where Capital is a T4 with mainly local appeal (Columbus, OH). I want to take the PA and NJ bar, so this choice was easy 2: Instead of being 9 hours away from my family, I'm 3 hours away 3: went to PSU undergrad, and now i'm back at UPark

Thanks for saying hi - it is going to be weird going back to school with all these people a decade or more younger than me. Anyway, being from Delaware, I know Widener pretty well - it's very good on Health Care law, but it's pretty expensive. Not far from Philly, but cheaper living cast, which is a plus. Most schools are indeed looking at the higher LSAT score, so that will help you. Good luck!

Miami Law is up there for me. It's easily my favorite city. I'm fluent in Spanish, so it would be a nice place to practice as well. Still, it's not as if I can just walk into the school. I'll keep hoping. Have a great cycle, and if you like Miami, consider applying to Florida International University. It's very new (1 or 2 graduated classes), but it's 1 of 2 law schools in Miami.

Thanks for the encouragement. I guess I'm just not all that competitive when it comes to this kind of thing -- I'd rather go someplace more laid back and a little lighter on the wallet. My feeling is that even if I attend someplace that everyone expects to be sub-par for 1L, I can work that GPA and transfer to my #1 school if the place turns out to be really sucky. While I wouldn't mind going to a T1 school, I'd rather keep some degree of sanity. I go to a competitive school right now -- and I'm not all that impressed. I'm just trying to be realistic about this because I could find fault at Yale. Heh. Besides, the name recognition won't be such a factor for me because I don't think I'm going to be headed into a field that will care much about that. All I want is a decent education -- and while I may be totally naive and idealistic in saying this, I think I can get that anywhere because it's all about how much work I am willing to put into it. And if my future employers can't see that work ethic then screw them. Sorry about the long post and craziness -- I'm just in a a weird mood right now. Best wishes to you in the cycle.

Hey man, thanks for the comment. I worked closely with the prelaw advisor at Drexel and he helped me out a lot. I got to know the school. While I can't say Drexel is my top choice, it is strong in IP and has a different educational path that has its positives and negatives. Also, the full scholarship doesn't hurt. Right now, I am content with just letting decisions come in and not worrying about it too much. What about you?

That's really cool that your application was remembered by those you met with. It's got to be a nice feeling to be something other than a faceless, nameless blob in the sea of hopeful applicants, and I'd be willing to guess that your standout status is a positive. It's after the holiday break, and mail should start flowing again, so I'll check back here fairly frequently to see your status changes. Penn's deferral was basically just an encouragement to send them additional materials if I am to have any hope of getting in. I probably will do it sometime within the next week, and I guess I'll just see how it goes from there. I'm already extremely happy with my cycle, so even if I get crapped on by every other school to which I applied, I'll survive and do so with a smile. Like I said, I'm sure more good news is headed your way, and I'll definitely be checking back to stay updated.

I withdrew as soon as they made the offer. Last year, people with my numbers got full tuition, and I had 2 schools offer me better offers already, so I wanted to free up that spot & $$ for others as soon as I knew I wasn't interested in attending there. Congrats to you though! That's great news, getting that offer from a school you like so much!

I'm curious about Pepperdine and I know you don't have your scores posted, but do you think you could post some thoughts on my chances? P.S. Congrats on Drexel.

Can you say cha-ching!!!? Man, all those haters out there are looking pretty foolish right about now. You're kicking ass and not even bothering to take names, just like some of us thought you would. Congratulations for sure, and thanks to you too for your kind thoughts. We're both having pretty good cycles!

Thanks for the comment! I am completely torn right now between Drexel and Miami, just visited Miami and loved it and will be visiting Drexel next month. I believe they will be fine on the accreditation, just not sure where the best fit for me is right now. See you in Philly maybe!

I think that it would be amazing to study law in a place like Malibu. It must be nice to just take a stroll on the beach. I am concerned about the lack of diversity there. Even though it is not on my LSN profile, I am a minority. Do you have any thoughts on this?

Legal, I just applied to schools again for this cycle. I never saw your post last fall until now. Congrats on your acceptances. I have to stay in the area and PT so my options are very limited. I live in SoCal and can tell you there is no place with better weather and Pepperdine is beautiful.

I was in Philly a while back looking at all the area schools. Drexel wanted me to come back for ASW and i believe they will reimburst up to $500 for travel. If you email freedman he should be able to help you out with that. I believe i will be going to the ASW on the 24th.

I think that's how you spell "stone" en espanol. A while ago you left some encouraging words on my profile and I just wanted to say thanks for the encouragement (Duran was THE BEST--I am a former amatuer boxer). I recieved an acceptance from Fla. Coastal and plan on attending. Seems as though we both came through with solid soft factors overriding the LSAT. You have some sweet acceptances, and best of luck--Will it be Wiedner, Drexal, or somewhere else?

hi there~ Congrats on your acceptances!!! all really great schools and it's really reassuring to have options. i know how you feel.. this is also my second cycle applying and obviously, my first time around was a no go... i had a quick question... when you received your acceptances and $$$ offers, had you already sent in your fafsa and financial aid forms? or were those offers based on your academics/scores?

hey legal latin! Thanks for the comments man. About NESL: I am actually leaning toward Suffolk because I had a great interview with the dean of admissions, and a alum called me and it was a good talk. I really think it be a good fit. NESL is cheaper, but suffolk may be worth the extra because of the ties in the city and to the state house. You got some amazing acceptances, and scholarships! where you leaning to? good luck now and in the future.

Hello! I'm going to the accepted students day on the 24th at Drexel. I am excited to see it, as it is slowly becoming my top choice. What do you know about its ABA accredidation? That is the only thing that is bothering me about the school - everything else is amazing!

- missnervous
  • Thanks
  • Tuesday, March 20 2007 at 09:15 AM

I was really excited to be admitted to Drexel, it's the only acceptance I have so far I would really consider attending. But then when I got the scholarship offer, I was really bummed, because 4k/ yr is really nothing when tuition is almost 30k/yr. Right now I don't know what to do, because if I am still waiting on other Philly area schools, and it wouldn't make sense to pay near full price for Drexel if one of my other pending schools accepts me. And with the 4/1 deposit deadline looming over my head for Drexel, I am starting to feel quite anxious about this whole thing.....

Hey, thanks for the message :) I think the move of Ave Maria to Florida is going to be nuts. Not many people understand how affluent and rich the Naples area is. Most people refuse to live there because of how high the living standards are (despite them wanting to actually live there). This HAS to draw some perks, especially since it will be the only school in the southwest florida region within 250 miles (north, south, east, and west). I just visited the school and the community is just like it says but the professors seem harder than I anticipated. In short, like the rule of publicity says, "there's no such thing as bad publicity," in my opinion the Ave will explode soon; very soon. btw...your choices of schools are very well selected. Best wishes to whever you decide to attend!

I am not too shocked about Chapman, they emailed me twice before WL asking me to explain how I have such a difference between the two LSAT scores. Mind you this was after I sent all the schools an email saying.. here is my new score here is why it's a difference.. Oh well! Yeah I think they got fucked last year and are trying something new this year but it appears to be backfiring.

Congratulations to you, too, on your decision to attend Drexel! It really seems like an upcoming school in a great city! Yes, my SLU acceptance is conditional upon my performance at their Summer Institute. I only have to pass both classes I take and the success rate is well over 50%, although the admissions staff told me nearly everyone passes (people who decide to attend other schools and leave the Summer Institute are considered to have failed, thus bringing the passage rate way down). Best of luck to you in law school and congratulations again on getting in at a great school!

Don't be nervous about school starting. I'm sure you're going to do great. LSAT prep is...going. I'm in for the Sept. test, and I hope I don't have to take it more than once. I'm not really shooting for T14--though it would be nice--just a good regional school where I want to practice. I'll take any open doors available, though.
