If I was from New Orleans, I'd gladly tell people. The problem is that I'm from Cleveland, Ohio (a fact that not even I can deny now that I live there again). I'm still waiting to hear from Columbia before I make up my mind about where I'm going to go. Sorry about the three up there so far, but I'll keep crossing my fingers and I'm sure it will get better :-)

Sorry - Already replied but accidenatlly included my email address and had to delete. Good luck to you, too. Wish we were in in a different boat. I think our PSs intersect on a few points - understandable given the similar WE. I thought FPLC would look past the numbers for my WE, but apparently not. This was my second time applying there, too. I think you've got a good shot with your LSAT, though.

No news is good news...I hope! I've been searching this board to find hope - I also applied to other schools that seemed to accept people with our numbers. Have you tried Vermont Law School? I'm not sure how great a school it is - they are big on Envir. Law. Actually, I started applying to schools that were in cities with ski resorts - I figure if I need to spen the next 5-10 years in a crappy city - well at least I can go snowboarding!

I hear that. Going riding this weekend in Upstate NY. My only criteria is that the school have a library, though. You've got that eco-background working for you for VT. I hear they're it for Envirolaw, but you're stuck in VT for a while. At least you've got the slopes. I'm really more about the IP/media/entrtmt. I love what I'm doing now, just want to be a lawyer doing it. If this doesn't work out I'll prob go back to promoting concerts. This is my 2nd round, and I had had enough after the first.

  • Ent. Law
  • Monday, February 06 2006 at 12:15 PM

Why no schools in CA? LA is the place to be for entertainment law... Wow - that's great that you are willing to try a 2nd time. I'm not sure if I will be up for this again if I don't get in anywhere. I kinda feel like they should just GIVE us slots since we are both already paralegals. I mean, those with only 1-2 years of legal exp. are one thing, but hey, you and I have suffered for 4-5 years of this stuff. It should count for something!

I guess you're right about LA, but there's plenty of ent. law in NY. More music than movies. I feel the same way about being entitled. Have you ever looked into apprenticeship programs? Not many do it because it ties you to your employer, but it does exist. In general, I don't think adcomms place enough value on substantive experience. Put either one of us up against a Yale grad in a CivPro class and I think we'd kick ass.

I'm not sure I want to come back to my firm when I am done with school...I feel taht it is way too big (I work for a very large global law firm) but I know that when I am done, if I do well enough, I can forward my resume to the big Litagation partners for consideration. Even though the school I end up at will not qualify me for an interview, the work I've done for the attorneys just might grant me a courtesy interview. Are you hoping to go back to your firm when you are through? We would totally kick ass in any Civ Pro class!

thanks for posting; makes it much easier. as far as me moving to ny, unless I hate (and I mean HATE) harvard, it's probably not going to happen until after law school.

OK, fine. You know you're going to have to re-read One L now, right?

That book scared me enough the first time; I don't need to read it again!

I didn't really like RWU, it was hi-tech looking that's for sure. But it's also a 4th tier law school. Both the hall and RU are superior in their reputation and academic rigor. However, RWU does have itself set up pretty nicely being the only law school in Rhode Island. They also have a lock on supreme court clerkships in that state. All and all the campus is nice, the law school is pretty much on the main campus. Bristol is nicer than Newark, yes, but I would go to RU or the hall in a heartbeat before I went to RWU. I've heard many, many, many people say they will not hire from that school. Dissapointing to hear, yes, but a harsh reality outside of Rhode Island.

I visited RWU and was pleasantly surprised. I got my waitlist letter a few weeks back and have yet to hear from Widener in DE. We\\\'ve got similar numbers (and results so far).
