ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

Headed to NYLS!! I'm excited even though things didn't work out as planned - the new building will be killer.

Also, I'd like to say that I was a little bummed out that, by looking on here, I was judged solely on the basis of my numbers. I was sure that my medical problems and difficult coursework would excuse the GPA, but I was mistaken. You can't blame the schools for emphasizing numbers, because USNWR focuses on them, and the employers eye those ranks. Higher numbers = money in this game, and I didn't realize it until far along in the process.

I'm excited to go back to school, and after the road I've been on, I completely trust my ability and firmly believe that I can do some great things if I work hard enough.

Thanks!

UPDATES:::
Santa Clara out of nowhere sent me a waitlist notice, about 6 months after I went complete. Weird. And BLS gave me a call to ask about me joining the PT program... the woman was nice but I had to say I took the money from NYLS over rep.

Thanks for the congrats. I'm really excited about Baylor and Santa Clara, but I'm holding out for midwest schools. I worked as a director at a non-profit organization for people with developmental disabilities. It was awesome and it made me realize how much I want to go into public interest. To be honest, I have no idea what I'm going to study in law school, but health law/elder law seem pretty interesting. We'll see... Good luck! I'm sure you'll hear back from your schools soon!

I still have to decide on my schools. I think I'll wait until more acceptances come in, but even with a EE degree, I'm not so sure IP law is my thing, and that seems to be Cardozo's strongest assest. Good luck!

Yea, it was a small white envelope. I think I'm going to withdraw, so hopefully there will be one more spot open for you.

I see you're from Missouri, have you been to NYC? I can tell you from experience (I live here) that BLS is wayy better than NYLS. They have a much better rep regionally (if you plan on working here) and many firms recruit at BLS and not NYLS. If I had to choose between SJU and NYLS, I'll still take SJU for the recruitment. Just doesn't seem like many firms recruit at NYLS. But if, as you say, you will be in the top 15% with $$, I'd guess that you should be safe. In any case, you look like you're headed for good things bro, maybe I will see you in the Fall at NYLS, SJU, or BLS, lol! Good luck on the rest.

I anticipate law school will be TOUGH. It's always nice to have some friends in the same situation hah. Keep me posted on where you will be man.

What are the negatives you've heard about BLS? I haven't visited the campus yet either. Congrats on your acceptances and the $.

Am heading to New York/New Jersey for the grand tour (six law schools in four days!). Will know more after. Yes, the money from NYLS is compelling.

  • Seton Hall
  • Tuesday, April 01 2008 at 06:25 PM

As for Seton Hall, it moved up in the rankings and the law building is supposed to be impressive. I'm considering Rutgers, as well. I'll know more after I visit.

  • Thursday, April 03 2008 at 06:24 AM

Yeah - NYC is a def for me as I've lived here all my life... I still have a few more days to give my acceptance to Hofstra so I got fingers crossed for Brooklyn and Cardozo.

  • Hey bro
  • Friday, April 04 2008 at 08:17 AM

Congratulations on finding your path to a great career man. Best wishes at NYLS. It looks like SJU for me if BLS and Cardozo don't come through. Keep in contact with me, we can compare our first year experiences. My e-mail is below. Good luck!

Yes, I definitely want to live in the East Village building. I know it has limited availability though, so I may just end up living at home with my parents in Brooklyn and commuting. I definitely don't want to deal with having to find my own place the first year.

hey man, i see you're going to NYLS in the fall. I most probably am as well :)

- alimania
  • hey
  • Sunday, April 06 2008 at 07:36 AM

yea, I'm thinking of living in the apartment building for the first year, and then see what happens after that... probably would move out starting 2nd year. However, nothing for sure yet, what about you?

- alimania
  • ..
  • Monday, April 07 2008 at 02:28 AM

one of the most important factors was the relative proximity to the law school.. and decent neighborhood the apartment building is in. Yea, the rent is quite steep, but thats NY for you. anyway looks like you'll be my classmate next year, barring any last minute changes:)

alright ! I just sent mine in actually 3 days ago by fax :) but the thing is I'm still WL at USF and awaiting other replies (5 to be exact!). But either way, I think NYLS is where I'm gonna end up, I just really thought it fit me the most, because of the location and the attention they gave me.

- alimania
  • Thanks!
  • Wednesday, April 09 2008 at 02:55 PM

Yeah, I was thinking about living the East Village apartments, but the rent comes out to $1,200/month for a small 3 room apartment (a little too steep for me). I'm looking into Brooklyn for some cheaper prices.

Went to admitted students day at NYLS. It was impressive! Actually made some contacts among alumni for internships. Liked it better than some higher ranked schools I was admitted to. Loved Tribecca. New building will be great. Not sure about the dorm though, but I might not find anything better or cheaper.

Will they send out roommate requests before you pay your second deposit? Did you pay both? I thought everything to do with housing was on hold until both deposits are paid?

  • Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 09:37 AM

No, I'm going to stick with the evening program. I love my job and its giving me good contacts so I'll stick here for all 4 years.

I'm not really sure. I went to visit NYLS earlier this year before I applied. I loved the class I sat in on and the professor made one of the most boring classes you'll take as a 1L very amusing. I also loved how the law school isn't spread out over several blocks and everything is very central. The concern is that since there are so many higher ranked law schools in the area will law firms and employers will overlook the school. What did you like about the school? Were you able to go to the accepted students day?

haha thanks I like to travel...unfortunately I won't be going to NYLS. I think I am leaning towards rutgers-camden and villanova.

So as things turned out, I am going to be in Brooklyn in the Fall. Just an update. Any updates with you? Good luck again.

hey, i think i saw somewhere that you already paid the 2nd deposit... did you receive anything concerning housing yet?

  • Re: NYLS
  • Friday, May 02 2008 at 07:59 AM

For me, it did come down to geography. My long-term goal is to settle down in the Oklahoma/Texas area, so I withdrew from NYLS. I was very impressed by the NYLS admitted students day, so it was a hard decision.
