Non-traditional (read old) first-time law school applicant.

*Scholarship amounts are total amount awarded for multiple years*

11.8.07-In at Phoenix by snail mail...that first acceptance takes the pressure off!

11.13.07-In at Baltimore by snail mail. I have always wanted to live in Maryland.

12.3.07-In at Thomas Jefferson by e-mail...nice scholarship offer...close to my home & my family would love to live in SD so they definetly bumped up the list a few spots!

12.8.07-In at Thomas Cooley-50% scholarship. Their reputation scares me...

12.10.07-In at Appalachian by snail mail. Another safety, I was hoping for money but my low LSAT strikes again!

12.14.07-In at Akron by call & email. I applied FT but they only accepted me part-time.

12.18.07-In at Oklahoma City by call-nice scholarship offer. Wife isn't real fond of OK but the money is tempting.

12.20.07-In at Franklin Pierce by email. One of my top 5! No money though...damn that LSAT!

12.24.07-In at Valpo by mail. No money...awfully expensive.

1.7.08-Ouch!! 2 dings in one day. Maryland & George Mason by mail...oh well I was a longshot at both.

1.8.08-Back on track! Admitted by phone to Hamline today.

1.11.08-Damn it!! Waitlisted at Denver-this is my first choice since I have family there and my wife wants to move there. This sucks...

1.14.08-Accepted by mail to Widener, my choice of PA or DE campus.

1.17.08-Accepted py phone to NESL, got the package the same day with a nice personal note from the admissions dean...very nice touch and the first I've had...someone loves me!!

1.19.08-Waitlisted at Pace by snail mail...this is a disturbing trend!!

1.21.08-Accepted by phone to Western New England with a scholarship...very nice.

1.25.08-Accepted to Roger Williams by snail mail. No Scholarship $$$...same old song.

2.11.08- Its been 2 weeks since any least the tracker at Seattle went to decision mailed today...what cruel torture!

2.14.08-Waitlisted at Loyola Chicago...happy freaking valentines's day! My waitlist trend at tier 2's continues. By the way, still nothing from Seattle...I never knew our postal system was so slow!!

2.16.08-Waitlisted at a kiss from your sister...over and over!! My cycle is nearing the end...only 3 schools left...

2.21.08-Withdrew from 10 schools today. I have narrowed my choices to 5 schools which I will visit in mid-March. Roadtrip!!

3.7.08-Finally got off the wagon today...for...another waitlist! Oh well...I'm not really numbers predicted that result at Hofstra.

3.11.08-Visited Cleveland Marshall today on my 5 school road trip and was given my acceptance package while there...loved the school and the cost can't be beat...could be the one!!

3.12.08-Visited Baltimore today...will be withdrawing. I got the impression that they could care less if I was there or not...short tour and no Q&A or sales pitch with admissions staff at contact went to lunch before I finished a class sit-in and left a "thank you" message for me!

3.13.08-Visited New England School of Law today...will be withdrawing.

3.14.08-Visited Western New England today...really liked the campus and's going to be hard to choose...

3.15.08-Attended ASW at Franklin Pierce...loved the school and town but at full price I'm not sure...decisions, decisions!

3.19.08-I have chosen Cleveland Marshall as my law school...mailed my seat deposit and withdrew from my remaining schools---my cycle is complete!

4.1.08-Cleveland has my seat deposit and will have my financial aid package to me soon. Just a side note-I did not withdraw from Denver since it is my first choice due to siblings there and my family wanting to move there. I doubt I'll get the call but you never know...

  • Pace Interview
  • Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 01:12 PM

So, i think the interview went pretty well. Considering how nervous i was, i think i was still able to express my desire to attend Pace and law school in general. I thought the questions were fair and i was made to feel comfortable instead of on the spot. i was told that notifications will probably start in mid Jan. anyway, good luck! i'll be watching...

  • Some other schools...
  • Saturday, December 08 2007 at 07:44 PM

I noticed that you applied to Akron. I'm from Ohio and with your GPA, you should really consider Capital. Columbus is a really great city and people in the area act as if Capital is the second best school in the state. Jobs are extremely easy to find from Capital, whereas people in Ohio pretty much have a negative idea of Akron.

Its actually $10k a year renewable. I changed my reporting amounts to per year instead of total to avoid confusion.

  • Im not sure...
  • Thursday, December 20 2007 at 08:40 AM

Rutgers in-state tution looks pretty attractive to me! But if another school gave me alot of money then I would really think long and hard. I kind of what to get into Fordham (but it might be unrealistic) so I would be happy with NYLS, st. John's, Brooklyn, cardozo..... cause they are all goods schools and close to home.

  • Friday, January 11 2008 at 06:40 AM

Yes! The wait is ABSOLUTELY killing me. Everyday, i do the same thing when i get home: anxiously check my mail as soon as i get home, then i check my e-mails. Still nothing!! Argh!! I guess I'd rather recv nothing than recv a rejection though. & the wait continues...

  • What?
  • Sunday, January 20 2008 at 09:25 AM

I can't believe you were waitlisted @ Pace? It doesn't make sense. Oh well, hopefully being on the waitlist is not the kiss of death & you'll eventually be accepted into the program.

  • Money
  • Sunday, January 20 2008 at 09:52 AM

I know what you mean when you talk about the expense of it all and wondering if we can actually pay for this. It's riskier for us since we're parents too. You don't want to tell you kids "hey, we're eating tv dinners tonight b/c mommy/daddy needs to pay for law school". It's a tough decision, but I know for me that I ABSOLUTELY cannot continue to do what i am doing now and since I have wanted to go to law school since 1990 and I'm beginning to have some breathing room now, I'm going for it. I'm just hoping that i'm not still paying student loans by the time i start collecting social security.

  • Choices...
  • Monday, January 28 2008 at 04:38 AM

Yes!! 5 for 5! When i finished all my apps, my mom said i would get into every school i applied to (only a parent would believe but so far, i'm having a perfect season. Since i've been accepted to a couple of schools that i wasn't sure about getting in, my #1 choice has changed w/every acceptance. Of course i would prefer to go to the LEAST expensive school, but i also want to go to a good school. I'm waiting to hear from CUNY and then i'll start making the pros and cons list for each school. You are in the same boat, plenty of choices. Have you narrowed them down yet? or have you decided to wait on law school?

  • Crunch Time
  • Monday, February 25 2008 at 05:08 AM

Hi! Right now, it's between Rutgers and UB. I just visited UB and i was really impressed with the school. I thought the facilities were great and the people that i met there were genuinely nice and helpful. Of course if i decided to go w/UB, i would have to move upstate (6hrs away), but you know, it's something that i'm considering. Especially since the neighborhood where UB is located is one of the safest, has some of the best schools in the country and it's actually affordable! I'm visiting Rutgers again next month and then i'll weigh the 2. I also want to see if i get into Cuny. I actually thought i had a better chance of getting in there than Rutgers or UB! It's funny how things turn out.

  • ...all my eggs...
  • Wednesday, February 27 2008 at 05:37 AM

...are in one basket. Yes, it is my only option at this point. I applied to law school last cycle, as did my significant other. We were both admitted to numerous schools (namely, I was admitted to Penn State, Temple, Quinnipiac, and Hofstra) but her best options did not coincide with mine in terms of location. So, considering I had the option to keep my current job if we were to move to Colorado from Delaware, she decided to attend the University of Colorado, and I decided to apply this cycle to DU, part-time. I was waitlisted at DU last year for the full-time division. So, this has all turned out quite unlucky for me, but I fully assessed the risk associated with my approach beforehand. Thus, I'm not shocked, just disappointed. Well, here's to hoping. From what I saw last year, there was movement on the waitlist, but they apparently offered some open seats in the part-time division to waitlisted full-time applicants who were committed to attending DU if admitted. Anyway, best of luck to you. It appears you have myriad options, some with $$$, and New England is spectacular, especially Boston. Take care!

- errcraft
  • YUP! I made my decision!
  • Monday, March 10 2008 at 06:50 AM

You know that UB was already looking good after my visit. When I got the news that I got the fellowship, it was like everything was falling into place. Not only did I really like the school and the people that I met there, but I really like the Amherst area, so this is the decision that's going to be best for me. I'm sooo PSYCHED!! Thanks again for the congrats & don't forget to let me know about your visits! :)

  • Baltimore
  • Friday, March 14 2008 at 06:23 AM

I understand what you went thru w/Baltimore. I had the same impression when I visited NYLS. I went on a tour w/other would be students and the person who gave us the tour spoke 50 miles a minute and rushed us thru the crowded bldg b/c she had other things to do that day. That helped me decide really fast that I was not going to apply to a 40k per yr school that didn't have the time and put forth NO EFFORT into recruiting or even for that matter welcoming prospective students? Good Luck w/the remainder of your visits.

I'm actually from near Cleveland and never thought I would go back to Ohio, but the CSU staff and students totally sold me. Congrats and see you in the fall!

  • Monday, May 19 2008 at 12:30 PM

Hi there: How long did you wait to hear back from TJSL? Did you email them for a status update at any point? I submitted my app via LSDAS on April 30, and mailed a money order from Canada the next day. I'm guessing they received both by May 10. I'm going crazy waiting! What were your application stats, if you don't mind my asking?

Hi ! I just finished my 1L year at Cleveland Marshall. I am in love with the school. Everyone will do everything in their power to make sure that you succeed. I\'d be happy to answer any questions you might have. I\'m old too (40...41 in June). I commute from Vermilion, Ohio. We have quite a few non-trads here. Welcome, and Good Luck!
