Applicant Information


Demographic Information

New York

Extra Curricular Information

Excellent personal statements; solid EC's

Hispanic female - several years of work experience in a legal field.

Economic disadvantage, attended Ivy with lots of financial aid.

I am applying to a few impossible schools, we'll see what happens. I think I'm spreading my applications out pretty well though. Fingers crossed! (And good luck to all!)


Waiting, waiting, waiting...

11/8/07: FIRST ACCEPTANCE! American via Priority Mail. I'm going to law school!!!!!!!!!!! :)

11/23/07: Accepted to University of St. Thomas - MN. Came in a large enevelope with an offer of $10,000 per year scholarship. :) It's nice to get an acceptance over the long weekend.

12/1/07: Received package with a U-St. Thomas t-shirt and a handwritten note from the admissions committee. Nice gesture!

12/3/07: Nothing. I realize I am being greedy, but I want decisions!!! I wish more schools had non-binding EA.

12/5/07: Second guessing everything. Is this normal?? Scanning my PS/DS for every possible thing that could RIGHT NOW be turning off an adcomm. Panicking about the LOR I didn't read. Analyzing the font on my resume. I need help. I think another acceptance will make me feel better!

12/10/07: In at Vermont Law School via email. :)

12/11/07: I'm not sure what to classify the email I just got from the University of Alabama... I guess it could be interpreted as a Waitlist, although it sounded more like the kind of email you would get if you were deferred Early Action. Maybe they don't think I would go since I'm from NJ? Oh well, I sent a nice response.

12/12/07: Accepted to Pace via snail mail/large envelope with $10,000 per year. :)

12/13/07: Another strange message via Status Checker, this time from Fordham. I'm classifying it as an EA deferral. My status checker says "2nd Evaluation." At least it's not a rejection!! If I got into Fordham I would be the happiest person ALIVE.

12/15/07: Rejected at Cornell. Not a surprise at all so I'm not too upset.

12/17/07: Accepted to Marquette via snail mail; both a small envelope and a folder.

12/18/07: Accepted to U. Dayton via email.

12/24/07: Accepted to U. Buffalo!!! Large snailmail package containing lots of information on the school. I'm really excited, it's a great option to have for an in-state resident.

12/26/07: Strange letter from Hofstra recommending I apply for a full tuition scholarship, but no acceptance.

12/28/07: Acceptance to Hofstra in small envelope.

1/4/07: Ok, I'm ready for some more news. Any time now!

1/5/08: Received acceptance package from Dayton. Nice package - $19,000 per year, invitation to visit with free hotel stay, and nice handwritten note from the Director of Admissions about my personal statement.

1/14/08: OK, I'm officially in a dry spell. No decisions since 12/28. I need some news!

1/14/08: Just kidding!! Accepted to Iowa via email. :)

1/17/08: Just noticed that my Georgetown status checker switched to decision. I'm not optimistic, but it's ok. I'm pretty happy so far. :)

1/18/08: Rejected at Georgetown. Ohhh well. Come on, NYC schools!!!

1/24/08: Tumbleweed. I have a LOT of schools pending, and not just auto-rejects. I want some action!

1/28/08: Accepted to St. Louis, large envelope, scholarship information to come.

1/30/08: Grrrr had an email from Cardozo. Got excited, but it was just about some Diversity Day they are having in February. :(

2/1/08: Waitlisted at Cardozo and U Conn, both small envelopes. I really could care less about U Conn, but Cardozo would have been nice. :(

2/4/08: Accepted at University of Tennessee, small envelope! :)
2/4/08: Also, a nice handwritten note from the Dean at U Dayton, some booklets from American, and a booklet from Pace.

2/6/08: Noticed my Villanova status checker went to Decision on Super Tuesday. Fingers crossed!

2/7/08: Waitlisted at Villanova. I'm going to withdraw, since I probably would not have gone there without $$$ based on my other acceptances.

2/8/08: Accepted to Quinnipiac, small envelope, with $20,000 per year!

2/12/08: Received $18,000 per year from St. Louis!

2/15/08: Received scholarship info from TN, $8,000 per year. :)

2/16/08: Out at UVA (small envelope.) I was not planning on T-14, but it's never fun. In at Temple with $12,000 per year! :) Large envelope with folder inside.

2/21/08: Woah, $24,000 per year to Marquette!

2/26/08: I'm sick of waiting, but I can't make any decisions until I hear from the rest of the NYC schools. :( I just want this cycle to be over. I have lost energy for it.

3/1/08: Rejected from Fordham via status checker. Would have been nice...

3/3/08: Rejected from Emory. I guess 'tis the season!

3/3/08: But in better news, $3,500 per year from Buffalo! This actually makes quite a dent in instate tuition.
So far it looks like all things being equal I will be attending UB. Money is a huge factor since I have UG debt, and I love the school, so I think that I will go forward with my plans to attend UB. What a rollercoaster this process has been.

3/5/08: Accepted to Brooklyn via email! ARGHHH my life is so complicated.

3/6/08: WOAHHHH on the Iowa offer!!!!
3/6/08: Accepted to Richmond via phonecall!

3/15/08: Received scholarship package from Brooklyn... no can do. I really want to stay in NYC but that's just not enough money. :( Still, I wasn't expecting anything.

3/24/08: W&M rejection. Don't care. I'm more concerned with NY schools.

3/27/08: Increase in BLS scholarship!!!

3/29/08: $16,000 per year to Hofstra via UPS package!

3/31/08: Full ride at Temple!!!!! Did NOT expect this...

4/2/08: And it looks like it will be Temple. :) I was totally not expecting this full ride. What a rollercoaster this has been. For a long time I was really unhappy with my cycle, but I think things have worked out in the best possible way. I am so grateful and excited!

4/4/08: Waitlisted at Washington and Lee... that's a surprise!

4/12/08: Waitlisted at St. John's... the cycle ends! I'm surprised by this one but in some ways glad as it makes my decision for me. :) Temple, here I come!!

5/27/08: Haha after all this time rejected at Alabama. What a tragedy.

6/6/08: Offered a spot at St. John's off the waitlist; part time evening. No thanks!

Hi! - - Your LSAT is great. I just thought I would check with you to see if you might have any advice as to place to apply or not apply. My LSAT score is low but I am hoping that my GPA - although ended at a 3.0 was > 3.3, will be able to make up for it and my extracurriculars. Let me know if you have any advice. Thanks

Wow! How did you get to score so high in the LSAT?How did you study for it? Im retaking in two days and my score has only improved about 5 points. Do you think that I could have a chance at any law schools since I am hispanic and I came from an economic/educational disadvantage? Any advice would help! Thanks!

I am still waiting on them and one other school... once they request it at least I will know I am rolling. I have not gotten anything from them yet. I was told they will not start reviewing apps until November, so I guess I should not worry too much yet. Actually, I just looked at your list, Cardozo is the other school I am waiting on. lol

I always looked at a deferral as more of a "next year" type of philosophy instead of we're waiting for the rest of this cycle to play out. I thought it was a waitlist, but either way, it's better than a rejection.

  • Congrats on University at Buffalo Accept
  • Wednesday, December 26 2007 at 12:38 AM

CONGRATS ON YOUR UNIVERSITY AT BUFFALO LAW SCHOOL ACCEPTANCE ! I am a first year student there and it is a terrific law school ! All my profs are IVY League or TOP 10 Law School grads ! On January 8th we go back for the 4 week Bridge Term unique to UB. The Bridge Term for first year students has a focus on legal research including intensive workshops on West Law and Lexis Nexis. I will also be able to take an intensive workshop on mediation ! And the tuition, especially for a NYS resident, is FANTASTIC. A strong 2nd Tier school, fabulous faculty, and tuition that won't make you a pauper the rest of your life make University at Buffalo a strong option for you. Best wishes !!

  • Thursday, December 27 2007 at 12:33 AM

Thanks for your note. There was a recent article in the Wall St. Journal which said that if you can't get accepted into a Top 30 school, then go to a fine public law school where you will get a great legal education at a terrific price. That clearly spells out University at Buffalo Law School !

Hey congrats on the Iowa scholly. I'm at U. of Iowa now working on a graduate degree, but I'm withdrawing and going to law school instead. Iowa City is a nice little town, and the campus is really nice. It's just too cold for my family, so we have to go back to the South.

  • Monday, March 17 2008 at 04:36 AM

All 'first year's' at UB Law take the following courseses in the fall: --Property --Torts --Criminal Law --Legal Writing and Reasoning Also UB Law has a unique Bridge Term for 3 weeks in January...this is not optional but engages students with the practical sides of the law each of their three years. All first years work with the law librarians during those three weeks and become adept with serious research and use of Westlaw and Lexis. All the best !

On Stetson...I don't think I'll visit since I think Miami is a better option for me and they isn't really a big tuition difference. I'd rather practice in South Florida than Tampa/Orlando so I think I'm better off at Miami.
