Wow, mother of seven huh, that has got to be interested and I be rumbling about my two. What is their age range. As far as school, this is your year. If worst comes to worst apply to JMLS for Jan 10 PT division because people rarely apply for Jan semster.

I undersrand exactly how you feel, you take the first step God will take the next 2. Keep the faith, dont let anyone tell you otherwise. Keep me posted. I agree with legaldiva, apply to JMLS, I got a offer to interview for their summer program which leads to admission in the fall. Keep pushing.

Im still waiting for them to send me the information about the interview. The deadline just passed so Im waiting. As far as payment plans I dont know how it will collected as of yet.

Tuesday, January 06 2009 at 08:19 AM

God bless your heart. Your best advantage is that your kids are older now, unlike me, I still have babies. (D)3 and (S)7 but I know they will be grown and no time so I am trying to enjoy them now.

Have you looked into the Legal Career Opportunities Program at Cleveland-Marshall? This program was discussed at the open house I attended. It is a very selective program, but it seems like you would have a great shot for it. Best of luck!

WOW

Hey. I found you on here and noticed we have similar numbers. I am proud of you. You are dedicated and let nothing hold you back. You will get in somewhere. My friend got a 135 and got into Thomas Cooley. Have Faith!!

Some Advice
Monday, February 09 2009 at 02:44 PM

Your credentials appear to be competative, in respect to your Graduate degree; However, Law Schools generally way in on your Undergraduate records. This is true, because most law schools view your Undergraduate experience in a different light than your graduate; not to say a Masters isn't note worthy. They just look at your undergraduate record. Your actually in a better position than alot of people, and your more fortunate than others. If I was in your position, I would seriously consider two options revolving around the idea of going back to school a "little bit more": Option 1, ask yourself do you truly want Law School? if yes then you must seek another Bachelor's degree, such as one in English, Philosophy, or Economics. Make sure your gpa is at least a 3.2; Option 2, if Law School isn't the only route you can settle with, then go to school a little bit more and get a PHD in your field. Look at a teaching career. In my opinion, either option is good, you already have all of your prereqs down at your Undergrad University, just some electives and a higher "UNDERGRAD" GPA would be better. for example, lets say you go for Economics, apply to these law schools again and you should be ok. Good Luck. Keep the Faith

LSAT: take it again
Tuesday, February 10 2009 at 09:22 PM

hey take the lsat again, if you study hard, consistently, you can raise your score up to 20 or even more points in your case. At first, after my initial test, I was mad at myself and sad, but after I studied consistently for six months, taking many practice tests, I was able to raise my initial score of 151 to 172, you can do that too, good luck!!

Don't Give Up on Ur Dreams!! EVER!!
Tuesday, February 24 2009 at 06:15 AM

Hello, It appears as far as your undergrad grades are looking, we definitly have major similarities. I want to encourage you NOT to give up hope one your dreams!! and if law school is what you want, so long as ur purpose is aligned with that of God's you will prosper and get into a law school at some point. God would not give you the will, the drive and desire to go to law school if it were not a part of his manifested plan for your life, so keep at it! It has taken me five years of application to law school to finally get to this point where I have gained some success and admittance. Over the course of that five years, I have gained two masters degrees and also taken an elective course in a law school to gain first hand experience and did very well. Yo do not have to go back and pursue a four year bachelors degree all over again nor keep on subjecting yourself to the LSAT in order to get into law school but continue to build your resume in other ways and continue to show your passion through other avenues. What people fail to tell you about the LSAT is even though schools will take the highest score you achieve on the test, it does not look favorably to take the test ten times and get the same or similar score on it over and over again, it actually looks bad as well. Overall, remain prayerful, stay optimistic and soo enough your dream shall be fulfilled. Whatever you do, don't give up!

Hi, Do you plan on attending the AAMPLE program through Florida Coastal? I have heard of this and I think it similar to the AAMPLE program at Nova Law School

Confused
Monday, March 09 2009 at 11:34 AM

Im not sure how you got rejected to Cooley? Did you kill someone or something, there is something you are leaving out . 141 /2.5 isnt that bad . Im lost

Monday, March 09 2009 at 06:34 PM

I seem to be locked out of my account... anyway I don't plan on doing the AAMPLE program because I can't afford to chance it. As far as Cooley goes I don't understand it either. The admissions rep told me that I needed 2 points higher on the LSAT and I would be fine. SOOoo.... I've decided to take more undergraduate classes toward a B.A. in Communication Media and Broadcasting to up my cumulative gpa and retake the LSAT in Dec. I guess what doesn't kill me only makes me stronger.

Boosting Cumulative GPA...
Saturday, March 14 2009 at 02:25 PM

NMVINCI, I've been watching your profile this cycle and really rooting for you. However, I don't think you can improve your undergrad GPA after you've graduated the first time with a bachelors. I could be wrong, but if I were you, I'd check with the LSAC before investing in more undergrad courses in an effort to boost your undergrad GPA. Good luck with everything!

Same Schools
Tuesday, March 17 2009 at 06:15 PM

We have applied to some of the same schools. Let's talk sometime. Good luck!! Kevin

Thursday, April 16 2009 at 11:05 AM

obviously with those kind of numbers you dont belong in ANY type of Graduate School.
