Thanks I just live by faith and leave the rest to Him. I thought about Southern Univ, but I wanna get out of the south been here to long. I probably will apply to just to see what they say. I am applying to Indy Univ. because of the ICLEO in the state of Indiana.

Hi
Friday, December 19 2008 at 05:54 AM

Good luck in this process. I noticed that you were an University professor. Where do you teach? I am currently residing in CA as well. This process shall be interesting. Please e-mail me. Let's talk.

Southern
Monday, January 05 2009 at 09:01 PM

Hey! You should have no problem getting accepted. Did you receive a Christmas card and the law centers catalog in the mail,from Southern?

Good Luck
Friday, January 09 2009 at 03:54 AM

Hey! It looks like we graduated from school around the same time (1993). I am also trying to get into law school right now. Just wanted to wish you good luck and hope all goes well.

Thanks
Saturday, January 10 2009 at 09:47 AM

Nope, I'm not planning on apply to anymore. The only one that is close enough to my house is IUPUI. I have 2 small kids, a great job and a hubby with an even better job so leaving is not an option. It was a last minute decision to apply and i'm gonna retake the LSAT if i dont get in this time around. I took it cold and will study next time around.

Thanks
Monday, January 12 2009 at 08:33 AM

Thanks for the 1/10 update! It is good to know and i'm sure you will get in. Maybe I will see you at IUPUI!

Good luck!
Monday, January 12 2009 at 09:09 AM

Hope you get accepted. Our numbers are similar, but your experience is WAY more impressive.

GOOD LUCK
Tuesday, January 13 2009 at 09:20 AM

Hey. Good luck on the application process. I notice our numbers are similar. Just Trust and Have Faith.

Annual Pre Law Day
Monday, January 19 2009 at 03:56 PM

Did you receive an invitation in the mail for Southerns annual pre law day? I did and was just wondering.

Hi there
Tuesday, January 20 2009 at 11:51 AM

Hi there, I just received your e-mail now. Things have been so chaotic. How is everything going? As we both know, this is a very stressful process.

Wednesday, January 21 2009 at 09:27 AM

Heard anything yet from the other schools? Phoenix e-mailed me last week about my app being complete and on its ways to the committe for review. 2-3 weeks and they'll make a decision. Whoa!

Saturday, January 24 2009 at 07:34 AM

Hey, sir. I decided not to attend the open house today. I'd like to speak with someone from admissions one on one and have him/her show me around. Gives me a chance to ask any questions I might have. Been getting e-mails from schools saying that my file is complete and I can check the online status, for those that have it. This is exciting! I hope I get in somewhere. And you too!

Thursday, January 29 2009 at 04:41 AM

Yeah, I'll try to make time to visit the school. I've been there twice. Took my first LSAT over there last June. The other time was a couple of years ago. I was in a paralegal program and we used the school's library. Let's just keep praying that someone will take us.

Hey
Thursday, January 29 2009 at 07:33 AM

Hey I applied to Hastings through their Leop program and I was accepted to Cooley's conditional program but I turned it down. I just wanted to see what the other schools say.

thanks!
Friday, February 06 2009 at 09:41 PM

Thank you for your posting. I sent you a message Bncounter. Look forward to hearing from you!

Thursday, February 12 2009 at 06:53 PM

I wanted to wish you good luck with the rest of your cycle.I was also curious about something you said on your profile (talking about academic dismissal): "It happens....especially at the 4 tier schools." Do more people have trouble maintaining a GPA above the required minimum at T-4 schools?

DON'T GO TO LAWSCHOOL
Sunday, February 15 2009 at 05:00 AM

TAKE MY ADVICE, AND DO NOT GO TO ANY OF THESE LAW SCHOOLS YOU ARE APPLYING TO. I APPLIED TO LAW SCHOOL JUST LIKE YOU DID, BUT SEVERAL YEARS AGO. I WOUND UP ATTENDING ONE OF THE LAW SCHOOLS THAT THIS APPLICANT HERE IS APPLYING TO. ALL THESE LOWER RANKED SCHOOLS ARE THE SAME--BAD FOR YOUR CAREER. THERE ARE TOO MANY LAWYERS AND TOO LITTLE WORK FOR THEM TO DO. MOST GRADUATES OF TIER 2, TIER 3 AND TIER 4 SCHOOLS HAVE TO GO FIND WORK IN ANOTHER FIELD IF THEY WANT TO MAKE A LIVING. AND EVEN IF YOU DO FIND A JOB, IT WILL PROBABLY PAY ABOUT $30k. NOT REALLY ENOUGH TO LIVE ON AND MAKE PAYMENTS ON THAT $100K IN STUDENT LOANS. DON'T DO IT. JUST DON'T DO IT. IT IS A BAD IDEA UNLESS YOU CAN GO TO A TOP RANKED SCHOOL. GO TOP 25 OR DO NOT GO AT ALL!

Any News
Tuesday, February 17 2009 at 04:12 AM

Heard anything from IUPUI? We got our apps in around same time and have similiar scores.

North Dakota
Tuesday, February 17 2009 at 09:12 PM

Good job on the hold for North Dakota. Lewis & Clark put me on hold as well. They will let me know their decision late April/early May.

Wednesday, February 18 2009 at 06:10 AM

I see you got the letter from Thomas Jefferson too. Well, 12 more schools to go. Looks like Whittier will let me know really soon. Keep me updated, sir! P.S. Phoenix seems to be taking forever!

Wednesday, February 18 2009 at 07:37 PM

Thank you for explaining that to me. I didn't realize they did that, but I guess that explains how they do so well on the 1st time bar passage. I checked the two schools that I'm probably going to go to and they aren't quite that bad. However, it makes me a little nervous about the required GPA to keep my scholarships, but I'm only required to maintain a 3.0 for two and a 2.8 for Barry. Anyway, thank you, and good luck with the rest of the cycle.

Thursday, February 19 2009 at 04:09 PM

Good Luck! I am very grateful that you have kept up on your status here. I enjoy reading the updates. I have not heard from IUPUI yet. I noticed 2 other people have been waitlisted that sent their application the same time as i did. At least they have not outright rejected me...yet!!LOL

THANX!!!
Tuesday, February 24 2009 at 09:34 AM

I have no idea how I got a decision so soon. I just wish they all were that quick!

Tuesday, February 24 2009 at 09:57 AM

Hey my friend. I actually e-mailed Phoenix maybe 30 minutes about my application. Go figure. Haha! If they already made a decision regarding your app, then yes, they're probably done/almost done with mine. These rejections so far are kinda like a low blow. Ouch. A few suggested TSU, but I'm done with apps this cycle. And where is Southern again? It's not in Alabama, is it? If you don't get in, *knocks on wood* will you retake the LSAT?

North Dakota
Wednesday, February 25 2009 at 10:04 AM

What is the waitlist process like? How are you doing?

Wednesday, February 25 2009 at 05:20 PM

Hey there. Received the rejection letter from Phoenix today. They lied yesterday and said my app was still under review. Yeah, right. Blah. Hope you fare better, my friend.

Wednesday, February 25 2009 at 05:38 PM

I take back what I said. It was actually Texas Wesleyan that e-mailed me back. Haha!

only God
Friday, February 27 2009 at 02:26 PM

Leave all to God. Keep strong! I will pray!!

Thanks!
Friday, February 27 2009 at 05:07 PM

Thank you so much for your message! That was really nice. You don't know how psyched and relieved I was over Mississippi. Their dean even sent me a wonderful handwritten note. I decided to withdraw on Texas Southern since there are others that deserve this opportunity. :) Congrats on your waitlists! I'll keep checking back on your progress!

Stay strong
Friday, February 27 2009 at 07:04 PM

Stay strong my friend. This process is a challenge in itself. The best of luck too you!

Sunday, March 01 2009 at 06:49 PM

Try Nashville school of law. They are not ABA Accredited but you can practice in Tennessee.

My choice
Monday, March 02 2009 at 11:05 AM

My first choice would be Phoenix since I own a house here and have a kid in school here. Much better if I don't have to relocate the family. Although if Pepperdine said yes for some reason I would go there for sure.

Go Vandals!
Monday, March 02 2009 at 04:03 PM

Congrats on being waitlisted at U of I. How does their waitlist work? Maybe we will be classmates.

Wednesday, March 04 2009 at 07:14 PM

Anything from Cleveland State? Of the four you have waitlisted, which one is your first choice?

Stay Encouraged!
Thursday, March 05 2009 at 08:27 AM

I loved your response to squirejons on 2/15. It sounds like you have a plan and, more importantly, a strong desire to make it happen. I have been a paralegal for the last 10 years. None of the firms/companies I've worked for even visit schools that aren't in the top teir. I've seen more first year associates that graduate at the top 10% of their class that don't have the sense God gave a paperclip. Stay encouraged, and I wish you the very best!

Good Luck
Sunday, March 08 2009 at 08:03 PM

Hey, we have like numbers. I hope you get in. I hope you become Squirejons boss.

Greetings!
Tuesday, March 10 2009 at 08:31 AM

I am finally in review at IUPUI. I checked my status checker this morning and nothing. But this afternoon it changed to "in review".

hi there
Friday, March 20 2009 at 10:29 AM

Maybe FAMU is trying to increase their LSAT median. Do not worry my friend. When does Idaho examine the waitlist?

Friday, March 20 2009 at 04:36 PM

I wish you nothing but the best in the process. I am still going through mine and pretty discouraged how it's turned out so far but reading your updates actually give me a lot of hope and determination to keep going, so thank you! I think for Florida A&M I would definitely think they are trying to get their medians up b/c they were up for site review in February and are getting really serious about reaching full accredition, in the end it's all about the rank, numbers, rating, accreditation.

Utah.
Friday, March 20 2009 at 07:13 PM

Waitlisted at Univ of Utah....aggggh....This is stressful my friend.

Saturday, March 21 2009 at 06:47 PM

I'm surprised at the rejection from FAMU. Personally, I think you should have been waitlisted too. It's their loss, my friend. I hope the other schools yield positive results for you.

June LSAT
Sunday, March 22 2009 at 11:45 PM

Phoenix actually recommended to me in their waitlist letter to take the LSAT again, I actually took it February and unfortunately scored the same. Another thing, I am actually graduating with my master's in May, and finishing up final papers and projects, I know I wouldn't be able to put my best foot forward for the June test and I don't want that test administration to go waste given that I have taken the test 5x already and using my final time for this 2 year period in case I don't get in anywhere and reapply for the Fall 2010 cycle.

hey
Monday, March 23 2009 at 10:22 PM

I am shocked about Central. What is going this year? Agggh...the economy is increasing apps. How are you doing? Are you shocked about Central? I think that you would have gotten in there last year man.

Idaho
Tuesday, March 24 2009 at 03:34 AM

You have a message! Go Vandals!

Congrats on CLEO!
Tuesday, March 24 2009 at 03:20 PM

That's wonderful! Will you be at the Attitude is Essential weekend function in July? If so, I'll see you there! If not, good luck to you. Stay encouraged!

AIE
Wednesday, March 25 2009 at 12:39 PM

I will be attending AIE in Atlanta. The other is held in California (I think).

congrats on cleo!
Tuesday, March 31 2009 at 06:36 AM

well done on cleo! it looks like you will have your wishes come true!

Southwestern
Wednesday, April 01 2009 at 12:09 AM

I am thinking that my neighbor has my Southwestern letter. Ha! The mailman may have delivered my letter to the wrong house. What is going on with Southwestern my friend? Is my application in the bottom of the abyss?

Congrats on Idaho
Wednesday, April 01 2009 at 12:33 PM

Do you really want to go there? I know the weather is kicking butt up there. WELL..."The Dream" is over for me, for now.... "Sigh"...All I can say is that my pursuit to attend law school is over...the LSAT standard was definitely my weakness...Loyola and Southwestern were my 1st and 2nd choices, however it was too difficult to get in at this time (their LSAT standards for this admissions cycle are a b*tch!!!). Besides, I'm 40 yrs. old and maybe it's not the right time in my life to take on $100K in student loan debt. Yes, I know U of Laverne and Western State are still out there, but both law schools are too far away to drive to. I'm going to pursue my Master's Degree and in two years, maybe the admissions standards will soften up... Damn it (using Jack Bauer voice)! I really wanted this!!! Goodbye J.D....hello MBA or MPA, lol!!! I wish everyone the best...

Good luck at Idaho!
Wednesday, April 01 2009 at 07:27 PM

Hey there, my friend. Well, I don't think I'm going to reapply anytime soon. My GPA and LSAT combo was pretty laughable anyway. I also have a feeling my personal statement was less than convincing. That's just my opinion though. =) As much as I'd like to get another degree, it's not an absolute must for me. I might try venturing outside of the legal field. If I get a paralegal job, that's fine. I'd just like to find time to learn a new skill. Anyway, I hope Idaho works out for you. You'll do great!

Good luck
Thursday, April 02 2009 at 12:28 AM

You, my friend, are a warrior. Best of luck.

Idaho
Friday, April 03 2009 at 08:20 AM

Cleveland State.
Sunday, April 12 2009 at 06:51 PM

I am shocked about Cleveland State. Absolutely shocked.

UDC and Dayton
Monday, April 20 2009 at 12:08 AM

What is going on with Dayton and with UDC? We are both still pending there. I applied early too. Agggh.

hey there!
Saturday, May 09 2009 at 11:49 AM

Still waiting for Dayton! Ha. How are you doing my friend?

You did it!!!
Thursday, July 23 2009 at 06:18 PM

YAY!!!!

CLEO
Sunday, August 02 2009 at 01:57 PM

Hey I was a the CLEO program 2009 at Pittsburgh. I just saw your profile and wanted to say congrats to a fellow cleo scholar in making a decision. Best of luck!!

Congrats & Inspiration
Thursday, August 06 2009 at 10:31 PM

First and foremost, CONGRATULATIONS to you. I've been following your law school journey and GOD OPENED DOORS FOR YOU. What a blessing and an inspiring testimony...please email me so we can talk further..I would love to connect with you as I move forward with the fall 2010 admissions cycle. Also, I want to ask you some questions and advice. Thank you and GOD BLESS. Much prayer and blessings to you for the second chance.

Thx
Friday, August 14 2009 at 07:46 PM
