Extra Curricular Information

Many activities in grad school. Stellar grad GPA, 3.8+. Worked throughout grad school. Interested in Environmental/Coastal law, or maybe good ol' Tax law. I have a couple of fiction pubs. Rewriting a novel.

Dec 07: Accepted new job which is complementary to someone interested in law school.

Dec 07: Won Fall League Tennis Division

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

As of Jan 29...I am 0-2-1 in responses...2 rejections and 1 WL
I have already sent my LOCI to my WL school...Not feeling good about my prospects at the moment. Maybe I'll get good news today or tomorrow.

Feb 4 -- another rejection. Not sure if my cycle will turn out positively.

Feb 14 -- And the beat goes on...another rejection today. Texas Tech. Oh well. Not likely I would've gone there anyway.

Feb 19 -- 2 rejections and 1 WL. The WL is from a crap school which I only applied out of desperation for an acceptance...as sort of a pathetic attempt at ego-stroke/reaffirmation that I'm not a total loser. I'm very disappointed with myself. I don't think I'll actually get an admission offer.

I will write-off half of my remaining schools. My only desire is for Idaho/New Mexico/Wyoming/Nova Southeastern to come through. I'm very surprised Dayton hasn't come through for me. I'm a great fit for them.

I doubt I'll bother updating this from this point forward. My candidacy is weaker than I ever imagined.

Wow, this cycle must be incredibly frustrating for you...you'd think w/grad coursework you'd have an edge. What are your numbers? Did you have any criminal issues? Also, have you considered Cooley or Phoenix School of Law? They seem very amenable to giving a chance to folks with non-representative numbers. Best of luck with the ones left! Also,

Hey, don't get too down on yourself. This cycle is a weird one and you've got a killer GPA. If it's your LSAT that's keeping you out this year, you can improve that while working next year. Also, send letters of continued interest to your WL schools. This will improve your chances of turning that WL into an acceptance. Best of luck to you, and I hope you get an acceptance somewhere you'll like.

I'm incredibly frustrated by the whole law school process. I have a semi-decent undergrad gpa and a 3.8 for my grad gpa. I have good soft factors, but just because I can't do a standardized test well I'm written off as being incompetent for law school. I've already invested at least $500 in this whole process and now have EXTREMELY limited options. I can't go through this for another cycle. I think I am going to attend one of these mediocre schools because at least they are giving me a chance. I'll study and become a top student. I just want you to know that there is something obviously wrong with this process. Hang in there......

Hey, have you tried Roger Williams? I don't know what your LSAT but they have a good coastal program!

Hey, I saw your comment on my profile from about a month ago. I hope you get in to a school! Applying to law school has been a frustrating three year long process for me. It looks like we are in the same boat regarding many things. I agree with terzhere, just GO to a school, study your ass off, get in the top of your class, then transfer to a higher ranked school. I really believe that ANYONE can get into a law school--even if it's not the one they want. Today, law schools are really about being money machines and will accept people because they'll give them money. I may sound jaded, but I work in the law and see what it's like, everyday. I say that if you don't get in this year, work on your application and try next year! The admissions director I talked to in the school I didn't get into last year told me I really needed to "spin" my application. Don't give up though! There IS hope! And, if you ever want to chat or want help with apps next year, send me an email. I don't think I'm an expert but I'll certainly try to be!
