Good luck with Notre Dame. Rumor is that they are going to reach massive levels of stinginess this year. Join me in keeping just about every available appendage crossed.

Hey, I got the reject letter from Notre Dame today too. It could be worse though. At least Quinn managed to choke when the pressure came this semester.

Yeah I hear you on that. All of last years deferrals pretty much killed our chances. I am just waiting for one decent acceptance and I can take a HUGE sigh of relief. Good luck to you! You should be seeing an acceptance sometime in the near future!

yea i have no idea what is going on with america.. i guess we just have to believe that no news is still okay news for the time being. good luck!

  • Tuesday, January 02 2007 at 09:22 PM

Not sure why American is taking so long. Maybe soon after the new year? It'd be nice to hear at some point.

  • DePaul Complete?
  • Thursday, January 04 2007 at 11:34 AM

I was browsing through the DePaul (and Loyola) application dates / admission and noticed you applied around the same time as me. I was surprised to see that you were notified by phone about the completion when I got an email today. Interesting how different the application process can be. Best of luck to you~

Glad to know someone else didn't benefit from The Princeton Review class. I thought it was just me...I tried to get a refund since I did worse on my actually test (both times) than on any of the practice tests, but they wouldn't give it to me. I know that the old LSAT tests are way easier than the one they give now, so maybe that's why we did way better. Just a thought! What a waste of $1200! I'm sure you'll have no problem getting in to one of your choices--best of luck to a fellow Big Ten student :)

Don't worry too much about ND... what is there to do in South Bend anyway? DuPaul is about a 10-minute train ride from where I live, good location. Chicago is awesome! I can't give you sympathy about the Buckeyes losing tho... I went to Michigan!

  • DePaul
  • Thursday, January 18 2007 at 05:03 PM

Will be interesting to see if you get into DePaul. they are LSAT hounds, but you have very strong soft factors and GPA. Last year, I literally saw that unless you were a URM, DePaul had a firm LSAT cutoff at like 158 or something like that.

- Jay

  • American
  • Wednesday, January 24 2007 at 11:16 AM

I know it's annoying waiting to hear from the schools especially after taking the initiative to apply early in the process. Atleast American hasn't rejected me yet, but honestly i don't even know if i would want to pay American's tuition if i got in. Good luck with all of your applications!

- brit86
  • oh oh never mind
  • Wednesday, January 24 2007 at 02:29 PM

I get it now :-) yeah, well if you don't "have the scores" the schools really make you pay or force you to a really high standard. Thanks US News and World Report!

  • Dayton
  • Thursday, January 25 2007 at 08:56 AM

Thanks for the info on Dayton. I have never been out east so it is nice to actually hear an honest opinion. I want to work in the PNW so most likely will be going to school around here. I will use that big $$$ from Dayton to try and get a little more from Willamette. I think you have a great shot at most of your schools. You will get an acceptance soon. Good luck with DePaul. I think you are in for sure!

- rtharp11
  • DePaul
  • Friday, January 26 2007 at 06:04 AM

I wouldn't say that! Your GPA is higher than mine and you have some impressive credentials! Good luck, and I would think Catholic would come through for you for sure!

- cricket
  • Good Luck!
  • Saturday, January 27 2007 at 07:36 AM

Our backgrounds are fairly similar (I graduated at 19, cum laude from NYU with all that honors/scholars stuff and full time work as well! Been out for almost 2 years working), so I'll be checking in every once in a while to see how things are going for you. I'm still hestitant on DePaul deciding on whether or not to go there. I hope that you get in at a place you really like this year! It would be great to see another overachiever get what she deserves. PS: I don't know about you, but I feel the LSAT totally misrepresents a persons abilities. Wish you the best this round!

  • send an addendum
  • Saturday, January 27 2007 at 09:18 AM

or letter of continuing interest. Send a letter asking for reconsideration with an updated resume. Don't give up!! I am an English tutor, so if you'd like, I would be happy to read/edit any addendum or letter you want to send to law schools.

- sarahbell127
  • Sorry...
  • Saturday, January 27 2007 at 06:00 PM

about American. I got my rejection letter from them, too, yesterday. I also applied to Catholic, but I applied for the Mass Comm Law Institute. Maybe we'll both get lucky and be accepted there? Good luck with the rest of your apps!

- optimusbjork
  • re: addendum
  • Monday, January 29 2007 at 09:11 AM

I don't think it hurts anything to send a 1-2 page letter to the admissions committee saying, "Hey, I'm still really excited about your law program." Then maybe pick out one or two really interesting/different aspects of your resume and relate them to aspects of that school's law program. For example, I noticed you worked with the League of Women Voters. Perhaps the school has a Women in Law group or a clinic on women's rights. That would be a really great way to show interest in the school and highlight your experience. I applied to schools last year and got into a few that I had no business getting into with my lsat score, and I attribute it to telling each school specifically, This is what I have done, this is what you have that aligns with it, and this is what I will do when I come to your school. It basically shows them that you are dedicated and interested. In addition, extra letters or essays highlights your writing ability. When it comes down to it, your ability to express yourself and write an articulate, clear, and expressive essay will speak volumes about your ability to succeed in law school. You can do it! But, if you do wish to give up on this cycle, that's cool, too. I applied last year, wasn't satisfied with my LSAT score or the schools I got into, so I took the June test and am sitting out a year. It has really helped me. Best of luck to you no matter what you do. The offer still stands to look over your stuff. If you'd like, I would be more than happy to email you my PS, if you think it would help. Sincerely, Sarah

I did take Humanities classes, but I was not necessary in the scholars program. I was a Spanish major/minor and I lived in Bradley/Patterson my Freshman year. I am sorry to hear about American and DePaul. I am sure you will get in somewhere.

  • another way...
  • Monday, February 05 2007 at 06:17 AM

Another way to can apply for law school...go part-time the first year, then transfer to full time. Chicago schools part-time programs have slightly lower LSAT / GPA ranges, which can help. GL I am sure something will come through soon.

Have you considered applying at Hamline? You and I have very similar numbers, and they offered me a very generous scholarship. With your incredible ECs (not to mention graduating in 3 years!), you're almost certain to get in. Their app is free online.

  • Tuesday, February 06 2007 at 05:50 AM

It really helps to work a few years post-undergrad. I think working in the private sector for 3 years helped me get into law school...even if you want to stay nonprofit or public sector, its a good experience.

Not real sure where I'm going to be next fall. I'd love to go to AU, but I'm atleast a year away from being ready to move to DC. Deferral may be the way to go - we'll see. Anyhow - send me an IM on AIM screen-name is on my page - we can chat more then!

Hey thanks! Ive thought about medical law, but am leading towards IP focusing on biochem or physiology id love to do drug or medical invention patenting, but am open righ now. This year seems more competitve than ever, and OSU is no different. My scores are puting me in the straight to rejection pile but I still have hope. Good Luck with your applications, and I am looking to get out of Akron/Cleveland for a bit 23 years has been a bit to long and Im ready for a change.

  • It's not over yet!
  • Wednesday, February 21 2007 at 06:11 PM

I wish you luck on your remaining applications. I don't understand why you don't have an acceptance yet but maybe you should have applied to a some safety schools. I applied to 13 schools and only 2 of them were safeties but I was certain I was getting in (and I did). You have a very strong GPA and an LSAT that is not bad. If you don't get in anywhere you want to go to then retake. You will probably get a higher score and better opportunities. I started with a 144 on my first practice test so I recommend taking a class on the LSAT (which helped me get a 161) and working your ass off. If that is not possible, then throw some quick applications to a safety. Plus, you still have a few pending schools. Good luck to you, I hope everything works out.

Got waitlisted at Catholic too, and rejected at Loyola as well.... can only assume that this means that Kent rejection is soon on its way (let's hope not though!) and after the Arizona State rejection last week I'm counting on Arizona's rejection coming any day now... just one acceptance would sure take my stress level down quite a bit.... and to think I'd have my life all figured out by spring break... looks like I'll be singing the same song in July... ugh!

just wanted to say good luck on your remaining apps. i heard back from my first school today - waitlist. doesn't look good for the rest of my schools since i thought that was the one i had the best chance at. last week i put some application in at safer safety schools. hopefully something will work for us both. good luck with everything

Ugh, I am sorry that you were let down. Since the Dean is relatively new, he probably did not realize that is what it said on the website. Either that or he was grasping at straws since he probably knows that they are waaay slow this year. Waitlists are very frustrating, but I know of several people who got off of Villanova's waitlist in the past, so I think there will be a good amount of movement and that there is still hope. Hang in there, and keep me posted.
