Additional info & updates

Currently a full time PROBATION OFFICER in Atlanta,GA

1/20/06- Attended Mercer Open House. I made some good contacts with admissions, faculty, staff, and students. Very informative and the professors seem cool.

1/23/06- MY 1st ACCEPTANCE THIS CYCLE!!!!
RUTGERS-NEWARK via Snail Mail (Large white envelope) I am so excited!! I can't wait for some more good news!!!

2/6/06-WAITLISTED AT LOYOLA-CHICAGO- I received a letter in a regular small white envelope. The letter read "We only invite well-qualified candidates to accept a place on our waiting list." Is that good? I dunno, but i don't think I can wait anymore, but faxed the waitlist response back to them anyway.

2/10/06-MY 1st REJECTION this cycle, RUTGERS-CAMDEN. Not surprised, but glad I got into Rutgers-Newark. No biggie.

02/13/06- WAITLISTED AT DEPAUL-letter came in the dreaded regular small white envelope, which i am tired of receiving. Faxed waitlist form back to them selecting to be considered for Full-Time Day and Part-Time Evening. We will see how that goes.

2/15/06-DEFERRED AT NYLS-received letter stating that I was not being placed on the "Waitlist" but a decision will be made and I may be accepted, denied, or placed on the waitlist near the month of April... ooooooK, I guess

2/16/06-Status checker at University of Maryland Law went to "In review".

2/25/06- REJECTED AT TEMPLE-Kind of sad, but I will get over it. I knew it was a big reach. Also received acceptance to Rutgers-Newark MSP this day which lightened the blow. NEXXXXT

3/8/06- GSU Status check went to "Decision Made" today. Im nervous!

3/9/06- REJECTED AT GSU-Very upset...Doesn't look like im staying in Atlanta. I thought i would get in there as i have done alot of c/s and civic work in Atlanta, also work here for the government, and went to undergrad here..again, very upsetting and i wish i had this school to fall back on if out of state schools don't work out for me.

3/9/06- REJECTED AT NYLS- was offered Conditional Program ....Blah Blah Blah...they can keep it

3/16/06-University of Maryland Law School Online Checker went to "Decision Made" this day. I would LOVE to go to this school and would love to live in Baltimore...I got chill's when I saw that a decision had been made. Im hoping for the best!!!

3/20/06- REJECTED AT SETON HALL-Clearly if i was accepted, i would have chosen Rutger over SHU anyway! Bite me...

3/20/06-WAITLISTED AT HOFSTRA-Ummm ok, now im really tired of waiting and being placed on waitlist. Who can wait till August to decide where they are gonna go?...Im still gonna submit the waitlist form and thats that.

3/21/06-WAITLISTED AT UNIV OF MARYLAND- Although this gives me a little hope, I can't believe I got another waitlist!!!! I would really like to go this school and im sending the waitlist form in ASAP!!! Im gonna bumbard them with updates till im takin off that list and offered a space!!!!

3/27/06- WAITLISTED AT AMERICAN- What can i say? I'm just kinda upset that they don't want any supplements...hopefully they come through.

3/29/06-REJECTED AT MERCER- WOW...this is a shock. I guess I won't be going to LS in the good ole South. I really thought I had a chance there. One question to Mercer: Why the HELL do you wait until the second to last line of the letter to say that a person is rejected? Whatever...

04/07/06-WAITLISTED AT HOWARD-OK there is hope!...Rutgers Newark and Howard are what and what on my list...I will be sending some more info to Howard!!!

04/18/06-ACCEPTED TO CONDITIONAL PROGRAM AT UB-Thanks....but holla

5/5/06-ACCEPTED AT UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND- OMG!!!! THEY ACCEPTED ME!!!!! OMG!!!! DECISION TIME NOW!!! OMG!!!!OMG!!!!!OMG!!!!!!!

TERP TIME! Maryland IT IS! Well, unless American or Howard get at me with some serious money.

I NEED A ROOMMATE!!! IF YOU NEED A ROOMMATE HOLLA!

THX!
Monday, December 19 2005 at 07:00 PM

See this is why I love lawschoolnumbers and my fellow HBCU'ers! Good luck to you as well, what is your top choice?

Top Choice
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

My top choice is Temple. I would really like to practice law in Philly as well. My ap is complete, just waiting and waiting and waiting!

Good Luck
Wednesday, November 02 2005 at 07:00 PM

Good luck to you too man. What are your top schools you are hoping to get into besides Cornell?

Hey!

Congratulations on Loyola. Good luck the rest of this cycle.

Nice.
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Loyola but hope you get your wish for Temple! Hopefully some answers will start coming in for me too.

I've been watching y
Friday, January 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

To God be the glory! Congrats on the Rutgers acceptance. Our numbers are close and I've been watching your progress.

Wow Congrates on Rutgers
Sunday, August 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

Wow I find that to be incredible. You getting into Rutgers a tier 2 is awesome!! I applied there also, and hear I might actually have a decent shot, b/c that school looks beyond the numbers alone. I would love to go there with you, I am hopeing for the best. Congrates again, and good luck on the rest of your cycle.

hey, hey...
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Rutgers! Glad to see it coming together.

Congrats!
Wednesday, November 02 2005 at 07:00 PM

On your acceptance Rutgers! Our numbers are similar man. Maybe I'll see you in the fall. 2nd tier, not bad at all bruh!

GOOD LUCK!
Monday, January 16 2006 at 07:00 PM

with your apps! I'm also waiting to hear from Mercer... Crossing my fingers. Best of luck!

Mercer...
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

thanks for posting. I was actually considering Mercer too but just never got around to it. Anything else stand out during your open house?

Mercer
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

Its a great school but nothing else really stood out...the law building is a little dated but they have began renovations and have upgraded the technology..the atmosphere is great. The students and faculty seem really close. If you want to get into legal writing its definitely the place to go. Overall the school seems nice. Im a city boy so if i decide to go there i will HAVE to commute from Atlanta which is about an hour or so away from Macon.

oh, ok
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, I looked at the site again and remembered I wasn't too interested in the school. I am definitely a city girl, so I just might have a bit of a hard time getting used to a lot of these schools, but such is life. Anyway, I hope you get more good news.

congrats!
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

on rutgers!. sorry for not posting my congrats earlier. wow! that is sweet. no matter what happens now at least you KNOW you are going to law school. good luck with the rest of the apps. i was wondering if you have family in philly, since you want to practice here so bad. did you mention anything in your temple app about the sp. A.C.E. program? have you visited yet? if you have any questions about temple feel free to ask. good luck with the rest of your apps.

sorry
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

about the waitlist. i expect one too.

Mercer
Monday, January 16 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! Is it one of your top choices if you get accepted?

RE: Mercer
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

Yes it is...im in Atl now and trying to stay in GA

Re: Depaul
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

Oops, not quite sure about when I went complete. I will find out and update my list. I remember contacting them because they never sent anything...Hopefully Temple will give me a chance!

Congrats on everytihng so far...
Monday, December 19 2005 at 07:00 PM

I'm sure you'll be attending an amazing law school! But you should have got your mind right in undergrad and went to HOWARD U! lol J/K! Congrats! Best of luck to you in the rest of this cycle!

not sure
Sunday, October 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

hey im not exactly sure what to tell you...i didnt even know GSU had an online status check so i received a letter...if it says decision made though then you should have a letter soon

hey man,
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

i just read that if you get a 12 month lease by june/july you can get in-state tuition for ru-n. just a head's up. take care and good luck on those pendings.

WE HAVE SAME #'S
Wednesday, February 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

hey i just moved to atl, but i'm from nyc w/ almost exact #'s and we applied 2 most of the same schools did u apply to newark under the minority student program and submit supplemental info 4 them to consider u under...let me know...and yeah howard is my 1st choice...one of their recent grads is my mentor..so i'm praying...big time...any advice..stay encouraged and best of luck!

sorry
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

about nyls. but they do pale in comparison to rutgers. also, just about all of your pendings are awesome schools. it's going to be very inteesting waiting to see which of these you get into first. take care and good luck with the apps.

Damn!!!!
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

Sooo sorry about GSU!!!! I was going to ask how you found out so fast, but I 4got you're right there in Atlanta. I'm still waiting for the mail to see my decision. Again, soo sorry, I'm shocked too, considering the ties you have to the area. As for NYLS, I'm struggling with that conditional program. I already got myself comfortable with leaving NYC so not sure I wanna do the conditional program. I have to read the papers to see what it's about (my friend read me some of it when I was away). Anyway, don't worry. You still have Mercer pending. I know how much you wanna stay in ATL. Either way, I'm sure you're going to get other acceptances. I'll check on ya later...

Re: hola
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thanks, I hope so too!! Yes, im interested in Criminal Law and Public Interest Law as well.

Congrats
Monday, December 19 2005 at 07:00 PM

So will you be attending the Open House coming up in a couple of weeks?

rutgers
Sunday, February 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

congrats on the acceptances, but hey if you decide to not attend rutgers, could you please inform the admissions office whenever you make your decision?

Oh yeah...
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

let the hatin' begin...LOL NO GSU, NO SHU!! NO GSU, NO SHU!! LOL... Anyway, thanks a bunch. I will continue to pray for you on your apps as well. We both still have UBalt...Hmmm...

NYLS
Tuesday, February 28 2006 at 07:00 PM

Listen man, NYLS is expensive, and not very good. I got offered that conditional program as well. Who do they think they are? I guess the name of the school confuses even them!!!!! Good luck man, u definately dont need them.

THANK YOU!
Wednesday, February 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

You have my sincerest gratitude for being so empathetic, while I was clearly wallowing in my law school valley yesterday! Good luck on Howard, I won't stop praying!

HU waitlist
Monday, August 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

HU took me off their waitlist automatically. 2-3 weeks after I got the letter saying that I was Waitlisted, they sent me an acceptance letter. I would just sit tight and wait.

Maryland
Monday, April 24 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Maryland!

hey :)
Monday, March 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

if you wanna practice in DC or in the south, you are better off in Maryland i think... plus im almost positive its ranked higher then rutgers... i didnt do my research all that well, but maryland is a good school. its a bit regional from what i know. they have dorms though, which is great... most schools dont.... take the highest ranked one if you wanna end up back in the south... everyone knows where md is but not everyone knows rutgers... good luck and congrats. look on lawschooldiscussion.org for me details from people on each school

Wow!!!
Monday, March 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

Rutgers and UMD are both great schools but it also depends on where u want to practice. If u want to be in NY or pass the NY bar then Rutgers is definately where u should go. If ur interested in the MD/DC/VA area that UMD is a great choice. Either way ur in a great position. Congratulations!!!!

wow!
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

awesome, man. just awesome. i would visit both schools and decide on feel. if i had to choose right now it would be maryland. the maryland name might go further in ga. i bet you'll become a big time atty pal. congratulations. how does it feel to be going tier1?!?

Maryland
Sunday, January 29 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey. The campus is quite nice. It is downtown... a few blocks from Camden Yards and right near the inner harbor.... so, the campus is very urban. The law school building is new (2002/2003)and is a very large, aesthetically pleasing building. Diversity was a big factor for me too. Baltimore is an incredibly diverse city, and the law school is one of the most diverse law schools in the country. With respect to the question of competition, I would just be guessing. I am assuming that most top 40 schools are pretty competitive. I visited during exams (probably not the best time to go). So, I couldn\\\'t get an accurate feel of the competitive environment. Good luck with your choice, and let me know if you have any more questions.

UMD Tuition
Sunday, January 29 2006 at 07:00 PM

Nah... I wish I was getting in-state tiution... 27K is definitely a lot of money.... my other option (Miami) is private and that would set me back 32K a year. I am actually going to call Maryland today to see if I will be eligible for in-state after my first year, which will probably be the determining factor for me... I will let you know what they say... are you getting any closer to a decision?

Congrats!
Tuesday, March 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on choosing Maryland!

Alright!
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

Great choice...well, you probably couldn't go wrong with either RU or MD. I have a friend at MD who's getting her PHD. She loves it. I think you will too. Congratulations and Good Luck!!
