It really was. I was blessed this admission cycle and got a chance to meet great schools/faculty/students throughout the States. If you have any questiosn regarding any of the schools in my list please drop me an email. Goodluck with your admission cycle and for all you future applicants, just dont give up hope! do you best on LSAT... dont panick and relax. Have faith in yourself and you will get to the destiny where you are meant to be. ******

*Addendum and Diversity Statement added for most schools PS talks about my current position and professional success, the rough road till success, lessons learnt and what I want to do with my life.

* If you think I might have a good shot at any T1 school please pass your suggestions. I am open to feedback. I wish you all the very best luck in your admissions, selection of choices, and the remaining legal career that awaits you in your life.

*ONLY paying app fee for American, GT and GWU. All the rest have to be fee waiver. spent way tooo much money last year and now broke.

12/1 - Took LSAT (After a full year of my 1st attempt)

12/20 - Recvd LSAT score. SCORE UP 8 points ! from 148 to a 156. I wanted to break a 160 but I am happy with my score. Finally the prayers are answered and I crossed 155. Now waiting for some good mails :)

2/7 - received large white envelope priority mail dated 2/5 from Univ of Pacific congratulating on acceptance as a legal scholar and offer to fly me out to CA for free. excited !!! yaayaah.

2/12 - received a small reject letter from GWU "thank you blah blah blah you are great and all this, but no thank you".. no hold up... THANK YOU! I dont care much for your school anymore anyways, on my visit I didn't see anyone but bunch of snobbish people.

2/25 - Waitlisted at Temple - "We get so many good applicants so we can only take the ones that show interest".."do you?"... "if so, tell us"..... that sort of thing. OFCOURSE I AM INTERESTED Mr.Temple or else I wouldn't apply! Sending the mail back today.

3/10 - Received a large envelope with folder... Depaul acceptance in PT program $4k/yr scholarship for 4 years. This is def a serious consideration. I can take a job transfer to Chi town.

5/1 - accepted at Indy Law. part time division. This looks great. I wont have to leave my job (and $$). The school tuition is covered at 100% thru stipends and tuition reimbursement thru work. They also have International human rights program.. hmm this looks good.. we'll see.

6/10 - Loyola Chicago calls me and offers as seat off the waitlist. I visited the school adn loved the location/building/people. However this is 27K/year !! for four years that would mean huge debt since they are not offering any $$... tough decisions.. i really liked the school

6/15 - Made my decision. Withdrawing from other schools effective immediately.

Thanks, lionheart, Accounting did blow. Hopefully as you said, it will go a long way. I feel like I am just on the cusp of most of these schools I am applying to. If I got at least 1 of my top 4, I would view this cycle as a success. I have the upward trend in grades after an extremely mediocre freshman year and feel like my LSAT, while not in the 160s as I would have liked, will give me some shot. I'll keep an eye on you as well. Best of luck!

That was some really awesome feedback. This whole application process has been a tad dienheareing I decided to go to Cardozo, they are the first to give me an acceptance and they're really well known in NY, I wish I had known about those fee waivers before (arrgh). In any event, I hope that your first year has proven to be successfull.

I about went crazy when I saw the "GW Law" subject line in my inbox. I still half thought it was a prank until I logged on to the admitted students site. Good luck with the rest of ur cycle man, esp. GW. Maybe ill see you during the evenings next year!

... I am also a Big Tener, haha. All my college friends are from Chicago, but me family is in Minnesota. I would kill to be at the U of MN, but I don't think I even stand a chance. I only applied on a whim over a week after I sent my first apps in. I figure it couldn't hurt. I'd also love to be at Madison, but again, I don't see much hope. What's your #1?

  • Friday, January 25 2008 at 06:30 PM

Quick question, being how you went through the program...... in regards to the whole placement thing, do you think schools will reconsider an applicant and possibly let them into the school once they have been denied? Also, what location were you at? What was an average day like in the program for you and your classmates?

it be great to get into a better ranked school like Hastings. if they accept me, then i'd go there in a heartbeat! =) but i originally had my heart set on CalWestern 'cause they have the Dual-Degree program and i can get a Certificate in family law as well! so we'll see... what about you? and that's pretty sweet you know three languages! so i'm assumin', whichever languages they may be, you've gone abroad and used them?

  • American
  • Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 04:37 AM

Don't be too discouraged about American, you have a better shot with URM status I think. I chose not to go to Catholic last year just because I felt that if I'm dropping that much cash, I'd much rather do it at a school with a higher ranking and one that is closer to where I live.

I greatly appreciate your advice, and I will definitely email to ask you some questions since I will most likely move to Indianapolis. As you well due to your experience, we're in the busy season at this moment. I am overloaded with work. By the way, which big four accounting firm you work for? I am with PwC. Thanks for willing to provide you kind advice, and you will be receiving emails from me very soon. I can see that you're making progress with your acceptances you have any preference yet?

Hi there! Thank you so much for the information. It's nice to know that there are other people out there going through this whole law school process. It really helps! I did apply for part-time or full-time and yes, I do believe that you can switch to full-time after one year. I did not know about the open house on Tuesday. Thanks for that info. Do you think it would help? I have never been to one. Do you actually get a chance to make an impression with some of the admission committe members? Thank you also for the information on ICLEO. I had no idea that 200 prospective students would apply. I thought about calling them but I don't know if it would do any good. You have some very impressive numbers. Congrats on your early acceptances!

  • Thursday, February 07 2008 at 05:23 PM

First off Congrats on the acceptances. I dont' know where you are located or where you want to practice but that means a lot. Definitely the OSU acceptance is awesome. You should be a sure admit for IU-INDY. You should also get a heafty scholarship with the better LSAT score to add to your profile. The only thing holding you back is that you applied a little late, but now since you are in OSU you are fine! I'd say go there if you want to practice in OSU and go to IU if you want to practice in IN. ICLEO is cool, you have to apply. It is different than the special summer program I did. With Icleo if you do it, you will get 5 grand a year to put to what ever use you want, books, tuition, food. I didn't do icleo, i did the special summer program which you probibly can't do b/c your numbers are too good. The special summer program is for people who have low lsat high gpa vise versa. You should just get in from your numbers a lone. Keep in touch with the school. To see if you are complete, with the commitee etc. Anyway don't worry, b/c you are not in law school. If you have any other questions about IU or INDY let me know. It is an incredible school, but depending on where you want to practice i may or may not recommend it. So far things are going fine for you. Good luck the rest of your cycle. Ciao

I decided on Loyola for a couple reasons. I felt the most comfortable there. I liked DePaul, but felt the facility was a bit run down. I also liked the location of Loyola. It is just easier for me to get there. There were also some political reasons I chose loyola regarding benefits and faculty/staff. good luck with your decision!
