Thanks...yea you too good luck with everything. I received a big packet last week, thought it was an acceptance but it was just the FCSL Book and no acceptance letter with it. Kind of bummed but still waiting. Just want at least 1 acceptance so I can feel better knowing im going somewhere. Glad you already received one you must feel good about that.

Hey there, I sent in my stuff to Loyola a little after you (Dec. 27) and I was wondering how long it took to get your student number to check your application online through their application checker?

Great to see more Boricuas.. We're perhaps the least represented minority group aside from native americans. Humm here's a passing thought... Isn't everyone born and raised in the US a Native American?? In that case NA's would prolly be the most represented group.. Wow you applied to alot of schools, I applaud your ability to look at the screen for that long and focus. At application like 15 I passed out and woke up 2 months later..

  • Monday, January 14 2008 at 06:59 PM

hofstra, uconn and syracuse are my top three. but i also love the programs at temple and buffalo! i guess time will help me decide and narrow them down.... hopefully that time will come sooner rather than later!

- melbel08
  • Well
  • Tuesday, January 15 2008 at 08:20 AM

I would have no qualms about attending any of the schools that I applied to, but I'm really set on going to a school in Los Angeles. Apparently Loyola is still waiting for a hard copy of my transcript, which is driving me crazy at this point. It will probably be 3-5 weeks more for me before decisions start rolling in, but you should be getting the rest of your decisions any day now.

  • Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 09:49 AM

hey... congrats on all the acceptances!! We're applying to many of the same schools and have similar numbers so your success is giving me hope..haha, especially for Villanova because I'm below their lsat range as well but am still praying. Do you have any amazing soft factors that you think made a difference? I was deferred at Miami as well... sucks. Anyway, what's your number one? Good luck with the rest and congrats again!

  • Similar
  • Friday, February 01 2008 at 04:42 AM

It seems we have very similar numbers/work experience. We have alot of schools in common as well. Hopefully you will have better luck at the DC schools then I did. I'm looking at your results as an indicator for my chances at Denver. I'm actually surprised by some of your scholarship offers. Why do you think you received so many?

- larapooh22
  • Loyola
  • Monday, February 04 2008 at 12:00 PM

It seems pretty likely I will end up at Loyola. I went there for my undergrad and had an AMAZING experience. Honestly, I couldnt be more happy to go there....but who knows, admissions at Harvard may get drunk and accidently accept me, you never know!

- larapooh22

Your having a great cycle, and I'm glad to see there is someone else who applied at every single law school.

I submitted it online over a week ago but need access is taking forever to process it. Which school is your top choice?

- nomikos86
  • thanks for the congrats
  • Wednesday, February 20 2008 at 04:03 PM

we have quite a few schools in common and similar scores, so there is a very large possibility that we will be attending the same law school.

  • need access
  • Monday, February 25 2008 at 04:13 PM

apparently they processed my application and sent it out to teh prospective schools a little over two weeks ago, so now I am waiting on the financial aid packages.

- nomikos86
  • schools in common
  • Wednesday, February 27 2008 at 03:19 PM

we have four schools in common. we could potentially be going to the same law school in the fall.

- nomikos86
  • well
  • Thursday, February 28 2008 at 03:09 PM

the schools in LA are very appealing at the moment, especially since Fordham rejected me. I want to practice in the intellectual property and entertainment fields so they are looking like better options at the moment. It all really depends on the financial aid packages.

- nomikos86
  • Geographic Preference?
  • Thursday, February 28 2008 at 03:10 PM

is there a city/state which you would prefer to attend a law school in? that can narrow down your choices, making the process a little bit easier for you.

  • admitted students day
  • Friday, February 29 2008 at 01:37 PM

I will probably go to one of the open houses that is towards the end of March or early April. Other than that, I don't know of any planned visits to NYLS. I am going to wait for their financial aid package. the deposit is due six weeks from now so there is plenty of time to look at the school and other offers.

  • Tuesday, March 04 2008 at 03:35 AM

Congrats on your acceptance to the University at Buffalo Law School. I am a first year student there and the place really lives up to its reputation as the top public law school in the northeast. A great legal education coupled with VERY REASONABLE TUITION make it a school to take a serious look at ! Best wishes !

  • Thursday, March 06 2008 at 05:49 PM

I'd have to say Loyola, Wake, SC and IU are my top choices, but I'm thankful for being accepted to the schools I have been so far. If you want to withdraw from Loyola, please feel free. While I'm sure Dayton is not your top choice, the facilities are amazing. I go there now and the library is great for studying and the courtroom is tremendous as well.

I called the financial aid office and they told me that they send stuff out after deposits. I'm going to email them though because I do not want to put down multiple deposits at schools.
