ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

Was testing between 160-168 leading up to the test... my score was a bit of a let down.

I invite anyone to leave feedback or advice about my choices.

I want to go into Entertainment Law or Intellectual Property (focusing on copyright).

__________________________________________________

It is SO nice having things done early.

11/01/07: I have still not gone complete at American and St Johns and it looks like others have. I will call and find out whats going on.

11/02/07: Spoke to a nice woman at St Johns, she said my application is fine and I am complete. I guess it was just a glitch.

11/07/07: Spoke to someone at American, I have been complete for a while, I just never got the e-mail . I am not too worried about the other schools yet, it does not seem as though there have been mass "you are complete" notices sent.

11/23/07: Got home from Thanksgiving to see an acceptance to American! I got a WL there last cycle, so it is nice to get some love. It also helps my theory that I had such bad luck last time because of my super late apps. I don't think I'll attend American, but it is nice to get in. I'll have to wait and see how the rest of the cycle goes. (8x10 US Priority Mail envelope with acceptance folder inside. No call or email)

11/26/07: Got email from UF asking me to complete their application process. I filled out their forms and submitted my app fee. It took 11 days from when I submitted my app, but Thanksgiving was in there somewhere.

11/28/07: Got email from FSU saying I didn't send a residency form. Geez. I can't believe I missed that... but I'm a TN resident so I didn't think I needed to do one.

12/07/07: Called UF and FSU today. Apparently I went complete and FSU on the 28th. The residency form did not delay anything.

12/10/07: People with numbers close to mine who also went complete when I did have started getting into FSU. PLEASE CALL ME TOO!

12/13/07: Rejected from Fordham. I was in no way expecting to get in, but it still stung. I am really hoping for some good news before Christmas... but not expecting that either.

12/17/07: UF is now reviewing my app. The email said I will have a decision "between now and early April." I am guessing April.

1/16/07: Called FSU, just to be neurotic. My file is "with the committee." She said it could take 6-8 weeks to get a decision. Hmm. Maybe she is trying to tell me something.

1/30/07: On "hold" at FSU. I won't get a decision until the end of May.

02/15/07: Acceptance call from Cardozo! Woo! Only down side is I would have to start in May. Any thoughts?

02/19/07: Got Cardozo acceptance packet in the mail. Very cute clear 8X10 envelope with info packet inside.

02/19/07: Got waitlist from Temple. I was actually WLed several weeks ago, but it was sent to the wrong address so I just got the letter. I applied FT/PT (FT preference) but the letter did not indicate from which I was WLed. Going to try to clear it up this week.

02/20/07: In at GSU! Came in a small white envelope. Nice state school... but I am REALLY pulling for UT/FSU/UF.

03/07/08: I GOT INTO FSU! Phone call acceptance... packet on the way... ASD April 11th! I should be able to get in-state 2&3L. I AM GOING TO LAW SCHOOL!

PS: For the record.... I could still be swayed by UF and UT!

03/11/08: Just noticed I got a random $1000 from FSU. Awesome. I'd love more to help cover out-of-state tuition.

03/18/08: Visited Cardozo.... very nice.

03/19/08: GOT INTO UT!!!!!! OMG! Only 82K for tuition + COL for 3 years... lovely! 8x10 white envelope with letter and invite to admitted students day. I think this might be it.

3/24/08: Got waitlisted at UF and St Johns. I never cared about SJU to begin with so no worries there, and UF just makes the UT decision easier. Over all I am very happy with this cycle.

04/04/08: In at Brooklyn. It was my 1st choice last cycle.... my how things have changed. I with be withdrawing soon from most of my schools.

You went to MSTU? Correct? Sorry, random I know. But I saw "Recording Industry Business Major" as I was browsing LSN and checked you out. My sister was a RIB major at MTSU, graduated about 2 years ago. She starts buisiness school in the fall, but for a while she was battling between that and law school to do Entertainment Law.

As far as advice goes... Work your applications if you haven't heard anything after a reasonable time. It may have only been a coincidence but I found that after calling to check on status and transmitting FAFSA on more than one occasion I got a response within a week. Good luck!!

  • Wednesday, August 01 2007 at 07:12 AM

If you can add at least a couple of points to your next LSAT, I think you stand a good chance at most of your choices. Vanderbilt and Georgetown being the exceptions. It looks like you might need to about 5+ points for a good shot at those schools. I'm no expert, but it doesn't seem to me that any of the DC schools you've chosen offer much in the way of entertainment law. I saw only a couple of courses, at best, offered at American and all the "George..." schools. And without a hard science background, I'm not sure solely focusing on IP is a good idea nowadays. Again I'm no expert and don't really have an interest in either of these fields, but it seems to me there are better choices if you're really interested in entertainment law.

  • Wednesday, August 01 2007 at 09:31 AM

For Copyrights and Trademarks you do not need any science background... infact it is not even completely required with patents (just to sit for the patent bar). I have a friend taking the patent bar and doing IP who assures me that it is not needed. I also have discussed this with several enterainment lawyers that work with IP and have no tech backgorund. As for Entertainment, there are not many good schools that have big programs. Its a bit of a niche field. Going to a school with a good rep and making the right connections is fine. I was a Recording Industry major, so I have covered all the angles. I have thought about Loyola... but I don't want to be in LAsame concept with U of Miami. Brooklyn has a good "IP, Media, & Entertainment" program so I really would not mind going there. I am appling to most of those schools PT, so you can lower the 25/75 on them by several points when guessing my changes. For example GULC goes from 171/167 to 167/162, GWU from 166/163 to 164/161, and Fordham goes from 167/163 to 163/160. I know my numbers are still a bit low, but a girl can dream right?

kind of funny how degree GPA/LSDAS GPA kind of matches. I wonder how that will work out. I think your list is pretty good. Most of my schools I am just applying full-time because I don't really want to live in DC or anywhere else but I have to have somewhere if I don't get into FL.

I'd apply to all of these this second but I have a prof that has a book deadline, and so is late with his LOR :(. May I ask how quick rutgers was for you?

- billt568
  • thanks
  • Tuesday, October 02 2007 at 08:44 AM

I'm wicked stressed over this, and aside from LSD telling me to just not go cause I cant get into t25, which I find elitist and not realistic, I have no idea where to go. If I get into St. Johns Im close to home, but If I get 40k+ from Hofstra its definitely a possibility...however rutgers is more affordable then both and I dont have to keep a 3.3 or whatever above the curve hofstra requires... but hour and a half commute. This whole process is making me grind my teeth at night, and I have no idea if any of the conflicting info is right :(

Hey Penny. I'm not sure what you mean exactly by have I thought of U of Tenn? I finished my app there two nights ago and probably would place it somewhere like 5 or 6 out of my 10. As far as state schools, UGA would be my first choice. I never had a true desire to attend UGA but since turning in my app, this rush has come over me! let me know how your apps go!

  • Wednesday, November 14 2007 at 03:10 AM

That would be so neat if we ended up at UF or FSU. I would love to go to a school with someone I met on LSN, how cool would that be? And as for GULC, I don't really have a shot. Only 1 person got in last year with my numbers. Not a great predictor of my success there. You are going to get a LOT of acceptances this year. I'll keep an eye on your profile. Good luck!

1. You are absolutely not an auto reject for the part-time program because if you were that would mean I am also and I am not willing to give up so easily and 2. With further analysis I noticed like you said that a) nobody was part-time b) all of them sent in their apps before us except for one person that sent it one day later than me but with a 173 and like a day earlier than you. So, it's not too bad, it just means that the train is coming :)

I've been pleasantly surprised by Loyola. Last class of the semester was last night, so I'll probably be cursing everything about the school for the next 10 days as I prepare for finals, but every one of my professors is great and so are my classmates, for the most part. My opinion may change later in the year, but for now things are good. I think UT's a great choice. I have family near Nashville and think it'd be a great place to live and practice law. You've got the numbers, so I'm sure you'll get the good news soon.

  • Thursday, December 06 2007 at 05:40 PM

I really can't believe that some schools (my #1 included) still make you send in your payment via check AND make you send in your certification form. Why can't this all be taken care of online by LSAC?

I am sorry that they flat out rejected you. I checked just before I took a final and was pretty bewildered by what I saw. I am probably not going to be accepted but I still have hope. You have a lot of good schools and I am sure you will get in, hell maybe we will end up at UF together. GOod luck

I didn't know I had a fee waiver until I completed the app. You should have it too. On LSAC, put the app in in your shopping cart, but don't check out. It should say app fee waived. Otherwise, it can't hurt to ask for one.

I'm thinking it might be because I'm PT. I don't see very quick movement for other PT students either. That's what I'll console myself with for another week or two, then see where things stand. Good luck to you though!

Hey i have been monitoring this site for a while but just decided to set up an acct since I expect the decisions to start rolling in. Looks like we have pretty much the same numbers, schools, and PT apps going on. Congrats on Cardozo! What are your thoughts on going 'Dozo with no $$??? My boss is a prof there and I sat in on her class last week...I really liked the building and the area. Have you thought about visiting?

- mganz21

  • Friday, February 15 2008 at 10:12 AM

I have only heard good things about the May program. I would love to get a head start and begin this summer, especially since I have been out of school for almost a year and have been working. An intern starting at my firm yesterday who began in the May program and he said the workload much more manageable. if you really are going for top 10-15% the May program can't hurt...

  • Monday, February 18 2008 at 08:58 PM

I was thinking of sending the Why letter if I got waitlisted. I hear that it's only effective in that situation and also when I emailed the admissions staff, they said that I should expect a decision by early March. So, given these facts, do you still recommend that I send in the letter now?? Thanks.

- calgirl86
  • Cardozo
  • Wednesday, February 20 2008 at 07:06 PM

Hi, Congrats on Cardozo. It's a really good school that is on its way up, and you can't beat the location, only 5 blocks from NYU and Washington square park! I think the may program would probably be pretty cool. It allows you to finish in three years and yet have a semi-part time 1L (I believe) this could help in getting used to NYC. Of course you would have to start looking for an apartment real soon :) BTW, why no GWU PT? GWU is considered one of the best non-t14's at IP law and I do think you have a pretty good chance to get in their PT program... they accept apps until march 1st..

Hey, I've seen you post on LSD and then I saw you're name on here so I thought I'd say hi! I am interested in copyright law too! Let me know when you hear from Florida. I haven't heard back from the majority of my schools but I'm pretty sure I'm going to UF. I visited the law school yesterday and everyone was really friendly. Plus I've lived in Gville the past 4 years, and its a pretty fun town. Are you hoping for UT so you can stay in-state?
