Hey sorry it took so long to reply. I don't check this very often. Unfortunately, I was forced to withdraw. I had some medical issues come up that landed me in the hospital for a week. With that comes not being able fly for a year from the medication I have to take. I don't know if I would have come off the waitlist or not but applying part time may help your chances because I applied for full-time. Wish you the best of luck on your cycle this year!!! If you have any other questions just send me an email it will have a faster response.

Hi, I am an applicant from China and I also applied CUNY in this cycle. However, my report is still not requested by CUNY even they have sent me a status check email. Is your report requested by them?

- qz1231
  • Monday, November 01 2010 at 03:45 AM

Finally, CUNY request my report even the status online still shows incomplete. CUNY is my top choice too and I love its public interest program.

I did get a phone call which was great. I heard from Suffolk in the mail on Monday, and applied for full time. I'm sure you will hear soon. Any idea of Northeastern's timeline? Best of luck.

  • NESL
  • Wednesday, November 10 2010 at 10:48 AM

Also, I did not hear anything before I got my acceptance letter, so don't worry if you haven't gotten a complete or ready for review e-mail. They seem to be on top of things.

I did apply Early Action to Northeasten, and my "received" e-mail confirms that, but then says I should receive a decision by April XX. A typo, I assume. We have similar numbers so I'll be interested to see how things go for us.

Hey, thanks for the comment! I did also get that e-mail from Franklin Pierce, and I'm getting a little nervous since I haven't heard back from them yet and it's been a week. Hopefully we will both get good news soon! Good luck with the rest of your cycle! What's your first choice?

- clr688
  • Monday, November 22 2010 at 10:56 AM

Well good luck with CUNY! Hopefully it all works out for you. My first choice is Maine, but I'm a little out of their range for LSAT so I dunno what my chances of acceptance are. I guess we'll see what happens.

- clr688
  • NESL
  • Monday, November 22 2010 at 11:35 AM

NESL is probably tied for my 3rd choice with WNEC and after Maine and Franklin Pierce. I've read a lot of mixed reviews online, but I know a lot of lawyers who went to NESL (including my supervisor at my current internship) and loved it. It is definitely the lowest rated school in Boston, but it still seems to place well in the area. I'm also really interested in Public Interest law, which NESL seems to be really good for. So I guess it really depends on what you want do and where you want to end up, but I don't think NESL is a bad choice at all.

- clr688
  • Wednesday, November 24 2010 at 09:09 AM

Yeah, from what I gather NESL has very mixed reviews, but I can say the same for a lot of the other schools I'm looking at too. I'm hoping to visit NESL soon so that I can take a tour and form my own opinion. Are you considering WNEC at all? And this is kind of a random question, but are you interested in any of the schools that you applied to that are far away? I also applied to John Marshall, Southwestern, and FIU, but now I'm kinda thinking that I shouldn't have bothered because I really don't want to leave the Northeast.

- Syrianguy33
  • Thursday, December 02 2010 at 05:20 PM

it must suck going from a school like BU to fighting to get a spot at Widener. This shit must be disheartening the way law schools place to much emphasis on a 4 hour exam that is meaningless in the grand scheme of things. I am in the same boat as you. IT sucks

- Syrianguy33
  • Friday, December 03 2010 at 06:44 AM

Hey! No I havent seen any of the schools yet I figure once I get decisions I'll start looking haha. I'mn from Ct originally so hoping to be in that area again. Def keep me updated cause we have a bunch of the same schools and good luck!

  • Friday, December 03 2010 at 09:26 AM

I have no idea when we're going to hear from UNH but it's driving me crazy too. My status checker date just changed to today's date, but my application still says I'm currently under review. WNEC is actually one of my top choices because they have a dual degree I'm interested in and a public interest scholarship. They're very generous with $$, so I'm sure you'll get some. I have a friend who's going there now on basically a full ride between a merit scholarship and a public interest scholarship, and she really likes it.

- Syrianguy33
  • Saturday, December 04 2010 at 07:32 AM

Status checker from UNH still says in review. I know the same thing happened to me when I was still waiting to hear from NESL- the status checker date changed a few times before I was accepted. I really hope I hear back from UNH soon!

- clr688
  • Saturday, December 04 2010 at 07:47 AM

Rutgers, Temple, Seton Hall, or U of Miami, I will be happy at any of these schools. I applied to Northeastern, how is its reputation in boston? Do people look at it as a respectable school or as a backup school to all the surrounding area schools?

Thank You!! I applied to the Harrisburg Campus because it is closer to me and near where i grew up. They emailed me at like 5am which kept my phone buzzing. It just notifies you that a decision has been made and to check your online status checker. I thought they would make me do there summer program with my scores... but im not complaining ahahah. Yea UDC is probably my first choice i visited not to long ago and the people where real nice, plus its close to home. I really hope i have a shot there, my first choice. With your scores i dont think you should have much difficulty at UDC. Congratulations on your Acceptances too!

  • Re: CUNY Law
  • Thursday, December 09 2010 at 10:50 AM

Considering the opportunities CUNY offers, along with their cost of tuition, and the current job market, they rank pretty high on my list. If I have to choose between an out of state tier 2 with little money, out of state tier 3, or in/out of state tier four, I will most likely go with CUNY. If your planning on going into any type of public service, CUNY is a smart, secure, and cost effective move. I will keep an eye on your profile. Best of luck to you!

i applied part time because i run a business for most of the day and still want be be able to do well in law school. But, id give all that up after i graduate law school to be a lawyer of course. I think if you have the time why not do full time its the best bang for the buck.

  • Tuesday, December 14 2010 at 05:11 PM

bro, i am scared to go to school in boston, there is like 8 schools in one city. Too many lawyers. I am trying to get out of philly for this reason. We have Penn, Temple, Villanova, Rutgers Camden, Widener, and Drexel. the city has way too many lawyers. Jersey have only two schools in the whole state.Cant beat it. If you are an entrepeneur, We could possibly look to open a law firm together or something if your motivated like that. But the place to do it is north jersey, not boston. Trust me

Nonetheless your comment totally made my day, I really appreciate it!! =) I agree the admissions process for TJ is totally weird. They like to keep us waiting don't they. Congrats on Whittier btw!

I also got into Suffolk law PT and have same stats as you.

I prefer the weather in Socal but Thomas Jefferson Whittier Etc. do not have the local rep that Suffolk does.

Hey there. FIU ranks pretty darn high for me. In state and public tuition. I'm wondering if all decisions currently say "decision rendered-letter mailed" of if it's just for accepted/denied/or even waitlisted people. Guess we'll see...:/ Good luck to you!

  • Sunday, January 09 2011 at 03:47 PM

- clr688
  • FIU
  • Sunday, January 09 2011 at 07:35 PM

- iLiftHeavyWeights
  • UDC
  • Monday, January 10 2011 at 07:56 AM

Yeah, after considering the cheap tuition and clinical program I figured I had nothing to lose by applying. The only downside is the cost of living in DC. I will definitely visit if I get accepted. Did you get the chance to visit FIU? I was there last January and I loved the campus. It's definitely a great deal, especially considering how low tuition is.

- clr688
  • NCCU
  • Monday, January 10 2011 at 08:01 AM

Just noticed your NCCU comment- thanks! I don't know much about the area, I applied because I'm interested in NC schools and the tuition is incredibly low. I think it's one of the best value schools in the country? Definitely worth considering if you want to work in public interest in my opinion. The only downside is that the degree probably won't carry outside of the NC area, but then again most of the tier 3/4 schools I applied to won't, so at least NCCU is more affordable.

- clr688
  • Monday, January 10 2011 at 08:25 AM

I really don't know where I'm leaning right now, I'm definitely going to have to make a few visits in the next couple of months. I'm definitely going to hold out for Maine, and maybe UNH- but the only people I know who went to UNH hated it and said it was an extremely cutthroat non-welcoming environment and they both transferred out. So if I don't hear from them by April I might just withdraw, because if it is like they say it is I don't think I'd like it much anyways. How about you, where are you leaning toward based off of your decisions now?

Yeah, I know what you mean about cheaper. I believe I will be in public interest for a little while. When I worked at the SAO in my county they told me SA's or PD's don't stick around long because they can't afford to. Have you heard of after 7 years of working for the government they'll pay off your loans? My friend that goes to Quinnipiac law mentioned it to me. Did you hear from FIU yet?!?!

Hey, I responded to iliftheavyweights...so I'll just copy/paste lol I received the status checker email on Nov. 23...decision mailed status Jan. 7. Yesterday I got the acceptance letter for the full-time program. It was in a regular sized envelope. So it looked like a ding/hold. lol I just checked my account and the only thing under mailings is the "application status online password". Under fees, just the application fee. My gpa is above 25%...lsat above 75%. Hope that helps! GL!!

CUNY is quite up there for me in terms of law schools. My heart and soul is at Rutgers-Newark for law school. CUNY is an excellent public interest school and i can see myself attending there and doing clinic work as soon as possible. As to Roger Williams, i believe i should have something tommrow or the next business day and hopefully it is an acceptance. I have not visited there, however, they seem to be a good school. I saw that NYLS did not admit you, and hopefully you can attend your first choice. Did you consider applying to Rutgers-Newark Law School? You numbers would be pretty good for

I actually am not to sure how they place, however, the essex county public defenders office, and the us attorney's office is nearby. They have clinics in the Essex county court as well, as i have seen two law students there when i went for an undergraduate class observation. CUNY (Queens) is a very committed school, and their programs are fantastic for the hands on work. I would not worry, as i read on TLS CUNY (Queens) takes their time to render decisions, and they do so via mail and not via the status checker, which only tells you a decision is on the way. My file went under review again at CUNY (Queens)on 1/12/2011 from 12/22/2011 so there is movement to look for. Again, with that personalized personal statement, and your commitment to public interest they should admit you.

It ranks high for me. People don't speak highly of it, but in state tuition-and ABA approval is really all you need. Low to no debt and you can take the Bar exam. Been a tough week for me, here's hoping for better results.

  • Sunday, January 16 2011 at 04:27 PM

I'm hoping for that good week you mentioned. I've just heard that they are having issues over there with the Dean, etc. Plus not many people even know they have a program. But they are ABA approved. I think when you discuss tier 3 or tier 4, they all amount to the same so you try to save $. What do you say?

Nope, I haven't checked out Albany yet...actually the only one I've been to is Maine, since I went to school for a year at USM which is the campus it is on. I've heard good things though, from friends in NY. I should probably get on the whole visit thing soon! :) Have you visited WNEC or New England?

Hey congrats on the UDC acceptance! It's either good for me that they're starting to make decisions or bad that they haven't made a decision for me yet. It's strange that they don't jsut update status checker. It's kinda pointless to check now. Just gotta wait for the email, I guess...

Nesl is looking pretty viable thanks to their scholarship offer haha...Would love QU but a bit expensive...Really hoping for some good news from Uconn not sure if Im hoping beyond hope though...Youll have to let me know where you decide since we have so many schools in common!

  • UDC
  • Thursday, February 10 2011 at 05:25 AM

I also applied to Catholic and American. So I only applied to DC schools I have a reasonable chance of getting into since I'll be looking for a job in that area. I'm also taking the LSATs again this Sat to hopefully pump my score a little bit. UDC is my top choice irregardless given their cheap tuition and my thought that I probably won't end up being a career lawyer. As far as switching the PT, I'd be surprised if you don't let you since everyone says they're more stringent on accepting FT applicants. I would shoot the admissions dean an email or call. What other schools are you considering?

Hey did your John Marshall online status checker say that a decision had been rendered? Mine has said in review since November, and I am just getting a little impatient.

- roberts88
  • Sunday, February 13 2011 at 05:10 PM

Yeah CUNY is my top choice. It was weird though bc it said that it was in review on 12/8 and then the date changed to 2/8. I called them and they said that it was a computer glitch and it just now went into review. Ugh I was waiting all this time. I hope they don't take to long.

We have applied to a lot of the same schools and have received some of our decisions at the same time! This wait on Southwestern is starting to get pretty annoying for me! What is your top choice as of now? I am assuming maybe Suffolk because you are currently in Boston. I live in Colorado but came out to visit Suffolk in Feb and was really impressed. Good luck in the future on your apps.

- GYMTANLAWLIBRARY2
  • Hi
  • Thursday, March 17 2011 at 06:39 PM

Did you visit Southwestern? Congrats on getting in... It is so annoying that I got waitlisted. I will trade you Golden Gate for Southwestern. Also, How did you hear about Suffolk Scholarship? I filled out the needaccess.org app and everything and have yet to hear anything.

  • Monday, March 28 2011 at 04:04 PM

So I wanted to give you a heads up about some of the schools you are considering. You may already know this but a lot of the cali school's you are considering have a horrendous grading curve and HUGE academic attrition rate. Western State fails out over a third of their first year class, Whittier fails people out all 3-4 years with the worst year being the first where they fail out about a third also and GGU is not much better. You should check out the attrition rates on LSAC official guide and also find the student handbook on these school's websites to get a feel for their curve. If I were you I would go to Southwestern If I were going to a cali school. If you look at Suffolk, they only fail out about 15 out of 530 students the first year and almost no one the remaining years.

I'm going to go visit Barry for Admitted students day. I'm still waiting for FAMU. But I am going to send out my application to Southwestern SL. I know it's kind of late... My sister is talking about moving to LA so that might work out well. I also like their SCALE program they have.

- JDhopeful86

- esquire21
  • Thursday, April 07 2011 at 06:58 AM

Well it looks like you will have a few decisions to make as to which school you will attend. Maine is my top choice and best option. Given my Lsat score I am lucky to have been wait-listed. I REALLY hope they let me in ha.

I've pretty much decided on NESL. I just got accepted to RWU on Monday- I have no idea what took them so long; but I most likely won't be going. I'm still holding out for Maine and would consider UNH or Vermont if I get off the waitlists, but I'm not banking on it. I'm glad everything worked out for you and you're able to go to your first choice!
