given your numbers, you've got to be kidding with your choice of schools

"No. Not kidding. I'm gonna go big or go home" Totally with you on that one; that's why I'm waiting 'til I feel ready to take the LSATs. Good luck!

Congrats on American! I'm waiting for them too, and based on your results and a few others on this site, I actually feel like I have a chance :)

i've been living in Boston my whole life up through college. so going to school in DC will be great! i also heard its the perfect spot for young professionals, especially for us brothers. did you got to school in boston, too?

  • Monday, March 01 2010 at 08:06 AM

i went to BC and I'm telling you right now, even though it's closer to boston than western, mass, it's not boston. that being said, it's a nice, intimate community but you'll grow tired of it quite quickly. BU is more in the middle of the action!

I will be attending the Boston Alumni Reception this upcoming Sunday. I'm excited for the opportunity to speak with alumni and learn more about the school for their perspective. I'm especially curious about how they fare, given this economic climate. I work in a small law firm. the attorneys here mostly handle immigration law, loan modification, accidents, etc. I'm learning plenty just by shadowing the attorneys and seeing which partners/associates handle business and what they do to succeed and whatnot. it's been an invaluable experience. it's certainly not like traveling to 20 different countries though LOL!

Looking at your profile makes me want to call up American and ask them what the hell is taking them so long to decide for me...did you include a diversity statement? Being from the DC area, American is a much much better choice for school over Howard, so don't worry about getting waitlisted there. All the schools around here are close (GMU, GU, GWU, HU, CU) so the networking opportunities are the same wherever you go. what kind of law do you want to practice?

Come to American! You will not be sorry, trust me.

  • Wednesday, March 10 2010 at 09:46 AM

Yes, at this point, it's the highest ranked school I've been accepted to and I have heard a lot of good things about it and I have family there. So right now it's my top choice. How about you?

Can you please withdraw from Richmond? I doubt you will be attending since you are in at American. Thank you so much.

Fred, I'm not going to withdraw from Richmond yet. I am waiting on scholarship info that may come in the mail.

And scholarship info came in today for URich. $5K/yr. More financial aid info may come after April 1. I won't withdraw before that.

Hey man, thanks for the congratulations. Sorry that is has taken me so long to respond, it has been a very busy semester. Even though I got into BU, I am having a really hard time turning down the offer made to me by Chicago-Kent. It is really enticing. Have you come any closer to making your decision?

So far, its gotta be Seattle. Going to visit this week so it could be make or break. Still waiting on the rest of the east coast schools though..

I hope you don't make the mistake of not taking the American offer.

Richmond is a rip off. Take a look at the job prospects. They are the 5th best law school in the state! I see them dropping to 3rd tier soon.

super jealous you got into American and I got waitlisted...oh well, I'm doing all that I can go to get off that waitlist and into the school!!

Nah, I finally narrowed it down to just Vermont or Lewis and Clark. Environmental law took precedence, and I went to the Admitted Students day and just wasn't as impressed. I am going to miss being in DC, but glad I won't have that distraction. The library at AU is tiny! And the cost is outrageous!

Congrats on your cycle so far. As for AU-WCL, I am seriously thinking about it. It is in my top two. How about you?

Hey im considering American unless I get into Cardozo or Cornell. If neither of those things occur, it looks like we'll be classmates in D.C.

- nochance2013
  • Tuesday, April 27 2010 at 05:55 AM

I did deposit there, still in the waiting pool at Cardozo & Cornell. I don't really like the cloud of uncertainty that still remains this late in the game. I'm excited about the prospect of living in DC and all the intl opportunities American affords.

"No. Not kidding. I'm gonna go big or go home." You're exactly right. Congrats and see you in DC.
