Hey! I'll probably be applying mid-October, though it depends on my recs and when I'm done writing my statements... I don't know what the index means, I've been wondering that too. If you figure it out, please let me know. Good luck with the cycle!

  • Cardozo
  • Wednesday, September 17 2008 at 10:13 AM

Don't get me wrong Manhattan seems cool. My mom goes there a lot for business. Cardozo has a BLAW program that interests me. But, I don't see myself living in New York past 3 years given the "cramped quarters" and the fact that I don't think I can be around Yankee, Giants or Jets fans for too long. I am still considering it, but I don't want to have to move too many times. We shall see, I might apply.

  • Cardozo
  • Sunday, September 28 2008 at 08:16 AM

Did you get the Cardozo info packet? I thought the CD was going to be a tour of the campus, but it's just the application and instructions. I did notice that their tuition went up $3,000, though. Good luck I am watching your cycle.

- swmontgomery
  • Sunday, September 28 2008 at 06:51 PM

Good luck with GW. I received the package with the info on the early decision, and as tempting as it sounded I could not take it. I am not sure what school I REALLY want to go to. I am trying to keep an open mind.

- alotra09
  • Wow!
  • Friday, October 03 2008 at 06:36 AM

No you did not mention you had your NW interview. I am glad it went well. I have my apps done, I am just finishing up my personal statement and addendum, probably this weekend. My 1st LOR is in and the other two should be mailed out by next week. I have to deal with this transcript thing at a community college, for a class I didn't take, but other than that everything is on schedule. I decided not to apply to GW but I am still rooting for you.

- swmontgomery
  • Thank You
  • Saturday, October 11 2008 at 08:36 AM

- swmontgomery
  • Thursday, October 16 2008 at 04:36 PM

So my NW interview is next Wednesday. Dun Dun Dun....I'm about two weeks away from sending out apps and then we are practically in the same boat with the waiting game.

  • Early
  • Thursday, October 16 2008 at 07:58 PM

  • Friday, October 17 2008 at 12:26 PM

- swmontgomery
  • Saturday, October 18 2008 at 11:30 AM

Yea, I am getting about four apps together now to get out before my Dec score comes. Hopefully, I will have them done by mid-Nov. Actually, I hope before then. I am still waiting for two of my recommenders to send in their letters. Then I will be done with Howard, Syracuse, IU-Indianapolis, and Stetson. I'm planning to send out the rest when I get my Dec. score, though! I regret rescheduling, b/c I could have been finished when the October scores came :-/ O well!! You should be hearing kind of soon about a few of your apps, right?

- Epiphanic333
  • Monday, October 20 2008 at 07:24 PM

Not yet... I have applied for merit scholarships- I think I am supposed to hear back from them by January.

- LucasHumble
  • Sunday, November 09 2008 at 05:39 PM

That's exactly what I am doing. I paid for almost all the applications so I might as well wait and see what they have to say. Luckily my classes have distracted me a lot from the anxiety of waiting and I am still hoping that some schools will respond by December =0) but I might just be a little too optimistic.

- alotra09
  • Hey
  • Monday, November 10 2008 at 06:33 AM

I'm doing BC and GW regular. I had planned on EA for BC, but I kept revising my personal statement and was waiting for some feedback. Of course I wish I had done it now. The wait will kill me and at least I would have known by mid-Decembers. Sighs, that's the life of a law school applicant...waiting. Best wishes this cycle!!

  • Monday, November 10 2008 at 01:35 PM

Yeah, I had a really strong app and great lor. For my ps, I used a creative approach and set up a scene where I was doing yoga and flashbacked to another time when I was volunteering at a homeless shelter in NYC. I also sent an addendum concerning my lsat score. I think I will send in a continued letter of interest the first of the year. For Cornell, I sent in the Dean's cert and my status checker still hadn't gone complete so I called but they have it. On TLS some people have called and they said they will still consider you EA as long as you have everything else. Whew, this is getting long! Sorry! Hopefully we both get in!

  • Hofstra & Brooklyn
  • Tuesday, November 11 2008 at 11:27 AM

I'm not actually applying to Hofstra. I just have it up there b/c I was going to try to keep up with the fee waivers but decided not to. I've thought about Brooklyn but am feeling too lazy to get another Dean's Cert lol.

- starrykc16
  • Thanks
  • Tuesday, November 11 2008 at 11:59 AM

Thank you for the tip! I will have to give Brooklyn a look. Wishing you all the best this cycle!

  • Quick Question
  • Tuesday, November 11 2008 at 12:06 PM

I just saw your post about Dean's Certification on another page--Since we're applying to a few of the same schools, do you know if the Dean's Certification is required before your application is complete? Or does it not need to be submitted until you matriculate? Thanks in advance :)

- Golden
  • Dean's Cert
  • Tuesday, November 11 2008 at 12:08 PM

Lol don't I have to give it to the dean and get them to fill it out first? Or does Brooklyn send out for it? B/c it's really a hassle getting those things done at my school!

- starrykc16
  • Dean's Cert
  • Tuesday, November 11 2008 at 12:10 PM

Wait, I just reread your message. They don't require a dean's cert??

- starrykc16
  • Tuesday, November 11 2008 at 12:22 PM

Thanks for the info :) My university is a huge public school, which I have been out of for a year and am no longer in the state, so this may be slightly difficult. It would be a shame to have the Dean's Cert be the one thing holding up my entire application.

  • NYCTF
  • Tuesday, November 11 2008 at 05:44 PM

I just recieved an email that I've made it to the interview round for New York City Teaching Fellows Program. I'm not sure if you're familar with it (Hey you're in NYC, you might be), but it's like Teach for America but in New York. So, I may do that instead of going to law school right away. I also applied to Teach For America and will find out Thurs if I advance to the interview process. So much on the plate!

- starrykc16
  • Wednesday, November 12 2008 at 08:17 AM

Wow, I hope I don't have to go through the same process (I'll keep my fingers crossed!). I will definitely let you know if I have any other questions and please do the same :)

- Golden
  • NYCTF
  • Wednesday, November 12 2008 at 10:50 AM

Yeah, but the fellows program is a 2-3 yr commitment. I still think it would be nice to take a break after school and get some money coming in for a little while. I'm scared I might not go back to school though!

- starrykc16
  • NYC
  • Wednesday, November 12 2008 at 04:18 PM

So, my brother and I are watching "My First Place and are thinking about housing prices. With NYCTF they make 45K. Can one live comfortably off of that much in the heart of NYC? We're used to Atlanta prices!!

  • Thursday, November 20 2008 at 02:30 PM

Thank you. Hopefully the success continues. Miami is a good school, with some connections to the sports law market and I think I would go there over some of my California schools. However it's on the lower end of totem pole as far as where I ultimately want to end up. These decisions are addicting and I definitely check my status apps everyday. Good luck to you. I'll be checking in on you.

- swmontgomery
  • Friday, November 21 2008 at 05:39 AM

I would be happy if I was you to be waitlisted at such a highly ranked school. All schools judge their applicants differently so don't let it discourage you. Some things that might not have been big factors for Fordham toward outright admittance but work in your favor at other great schools. Being on the waitlist shows they are interested and they think you would be a good addition. Plenty of people who get accepted there will withdraw and if you really want to go there I would say you have a good shot of getting in eventually. Good luck with the rest of your cycle. I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes.

- noshtick311
  • Thanks
  • Sunday, November 23 2008 at 02:41 AM

I'm not 100% on which school I would choose yet, but I'm leaning more towards FSU because they have a great government/public interest law emphasis and that's the field I want to go into. And I completely agree with you--the wait is horrendous. Hang in there, we've only got around five more months of this ;)

  • Waitlisted
  • Tuesday, November 25 2008 at 09:23 AM

I'm waitlisted at UVA. You just have to roll with it. Keep it in your thoughts, send a loci in Jan, and hope for the best. You could see if they offer interviews, and if they do request one. Also, if you did better this semester GPA wise, send an updated transcript to LSAC. Otherwise, stay optomistic about the other ten or so places you applied. You are sure to get accepted somewhere great!

Cornell did not guarantee it (ha, i'm not that important that they would!) but an email i got said if you are early decision, decisions are out before the end of december. so at the most, i probably have three weeks to wait.

  • Thursday, December 04 2008 at 03:27 PM

IDK?? I think I'll wait until futher in this cycle. If I'm in at another school that's a tie with Fordham or one I would rather attend then, no. But if in April I have one acceptance and one WL and the rest are rejections then I'm going to bombard them with whatever I can to get that chaged from a WL to a yes. I'll even take PT.

  • Congrats!
  • Friday, December 05 2008 at 08:45 AM

On your acceptances! I need to complete the NW application, and I'm definitely interested in interviewing with them and Vanderbuilt. As far as being waitlisted, some one commented on CLEO they might give you some advice about being waitlisted. Have you check out www.forpeopleofcolor.org? They have been an amazing resource for me and I'm sure they would have guidance for you in this process! Best of Luck!

Yeah, me too. I've been out of school for a while. I've worked tons and have pages of awards, accomplishments, and other factors that look much stronger on paper than my LSAT and GPA. I like that they have that option.

- TH0409
  • Friday, December 05 2008 at 09:09 AM

I saw Anthony Solana speak at UC Hastings diversity outreach day a few months back. He mentioned to everyone, if we were waitlisted to contact FPOC for guidance/tips. So it might be worth a try, if Fordham is on the top of your list. :)

I got all my applications in except for the few schools that I am looking at in the Boston area. Now, I have to wait until I have some more money to pay those last two or three schools. I see you got waitlisted at Fordham. I bet if you applied to CLEO they'd accept you since they are a member school.

I have not sent in LOCI yet. For ND I had a ND alum/professor write an extra, mission focused LOR. I am going to write LOCI in the new year. I haven't decided if I will pursue all of the waitlists. I feel like I have a bunch more coming. But I think when I do them I will just reaffrim my committment to the mission of the school, maybe include a written piece of work that was significant to my UG career. Nothing too out of the box. I did return my WL form to Marquette in a Christmas Card, lol.

- IslandLaw

- mrobe000
  • Cardozo
  • Monday, December 22 2008 at 06:40 AM

Yeah they told me that I would not hear from them until after the new year. I liked Cardozo so much for a bunch of different reasons. They have an amazing career services center, 6 law review journals, moot court, a ton of law clinics that allow students to get real hands on experience (for class credit) helping real people, and then just a ton of different other innovative teaching styles. Not to mention there amazing location in NYC. I really want to move up to NY and I use to live there until high school so it would be nice to move back. Since you live in NY I really recommend you going for a visit to check it out (just call them and they will schedule a tour). I wouldn't mind going to Fordham either but I don't have a good feeling about even getting waitlisted.

  • The Waiting Game
  • Wednesday, January 14 2009 at 12:22 PM

Hofstra is fine, especially with a near full scholly, but if Loyola Chicago offered similar I would choose it over Hofstra. I'm really hoping for acceptance from Cardozo or Brooklyn though. If I get in there it would take acceptance at Fordham or a T-14 school to get me to go elsewhere.(unlikely though) I'm sick of waiting too, Fordham doesn't even update their stupid status ticker ever, but Northwestern's eight weeks is nearly up. So we'll be hearing from them soon! Hopefully we both can get some good news!

- edmo247
  • Good luck

No I am not really concerned. I hate to wait that long but I have no choice. They do that because they accept more people than they have room for and they won't know what their class size is like until people start sending in seat deposits. Part of the seat deposit should be refundable, at least for some schools. Have you heard back from Cardozo? I'm debating as to whether I should put myself on that waiting list.

Getting in to Wash & Lee would just be a plus but it's a big reach for me. What about you? What are your plans as of right now?

Hey, Please take a look at Howard Univ Law's Employment Statistics.(median starting Salary is $135,000!!!!) I read it on US News Best Grad Schools 2009, and scratched my head? I checked here and I saw (551 firms for their OCI) Have you heard anything about this?? That figure is equally as great as a T14.--yet the schools is 3rd tier?

Good luck on your remaining schools! Looks like you've already gotten into some great ones. I think you're set!

Wow!! Great job on your cycle so far!! I am dying to hear from Pace. Also wish I would have applied to American, blah. Thanks for the kind words.

My interview at Northwestern was interesting. It was a little shorter than I expected, but I think she liked my interest in the law, but I was definitely a little flustered, so I hope it doesn't hurt me too much. Good Luck at Cardozo!!!!

Can you give any details on the Cardozo interview? It's my top choice at this point. Fellow Purchase Alum

Thanks, and congrats on your acceptances too! Unfortunately, I'm Chinese-American and therefore not considered a URM, lol. BC or UIUC are my top choices, but I have yet to hear from BC and UIUC is a waitlist. I'm jealous of your Northeastern scholly! I'd love to go there. I think I'm going to end up either at Cincy or Pitt, though. What about you?

First, congrats on the Duke WL...you must be excited! Rutgers is about $19k/yr, including books and transportation costs. Temple is $24k/yr. I'm still waiting on the official letter from Temple, but I doubt I'll get any $$.

  • Thursday, March 19 2009 at 12:23 PM

Thanks for the congrats! I see you have had a wonderful cycle! Any ideas on where you will be attending? Pace gave you a nice scholarship...is that spread out throughout the three years? I am a bit upset I did not receive a diversity scholarship...but hey....at least I got in!!! Best of luck in the fall!!!

  • Thursday, March 19 2009 at 02:30 PM

Glad to hear your interview went well. Congrats on all your acceptances - our scores seem fairly close, but so far this isn't looking good for me. Do you remember who you interviewed with at Cardozo? I think my impression of the school was similar to yours - it's a fabulous place. Are you applying for spring entrance or fall? Best of luck. You're well on your way!

  • Friday, March 20 2009 at 12:56 PM

You are hella funny! I thought I would receive the letter from Temple today, but that was not to be - maybe tomorrow. I will take your advice and call them, if I can muster the strength...

  • Cardozo
  • Saturday, March 21 2009 at 04:04 AM

I was considering Cardozo until I got into a certain school there's no way I can turn down. I have a good image of 'Dozo. If you plan to stay in NYC especially, it should give you a lot of good job options. I read a lot of good things about their public interest program. Good luck!

Congrats on Cardozo! Looks like I'll be attending Cardozo next year, I'm just waiting for Yale to confirm my rejection.

I'll be moving in either late July or early August, whenever I feel like I have saved enough money for the move. Any suggestions on finding apartments?

  • Thank You!

I got really lucky with that :) It looks like you're cycle is winding down, too. What's your top choice right now?

I've only been looking at Brooklyn. Since I don't plan on moving until late summer, what time do you think would be an ideal time to try and close on an apartment. (I hear apartments go very fast in NYC)

- edmo247
  • Tuesday, March 31 2009 at 09:17 AM

Hi, I got the SAME decision from Cornell. I called today and they told me there's no way to know at this point whether any seats will be available or not after May. Do you think the 2nd deferral is essentially a waitlist? :(

  • Tuesday, March 31 2009 at 09:40 AM

I can't do the Alabama because I don't beliieve they offer family housing and I'm married, also my wife is going to Columbia dental next year so if we were to do school housing then we'd do it there. (Hopefully we can find an apartment though.)

- edmo247
  • LOL!
  • Tuesday, March 31 2009 at 11:13 AM

Yeah I was getting sick of the waitlists at one point. 6 schools...it was getting ridiculous, lol. BUT I was happy that the majority of them were T14s...made me feel a little better about myself. lol.

I got in! Thanks for all of your well-wishes, American is a great school and is right down the street from my apartment so it was the best thing that could have happened. Good luck with your decision!

Thanks, Fordham's looking good. Hang in there, these Admissions folks are unpredictable. I had a lot of work experience and stuff and stressed it in the interview. But I don't think the interviewer was feeling me.

You, my friend, are doing quite well for yourself. Good Schools + Scholarships= Great Lawyer & Less Debt, which I hope to eventually accomplish.

I loved the article. You're right, scholarships are particularly nice now. It looks like you have some solid schools to choose from. Buena suerte, and I wish you continued success!

You know, in looking at the other statistics of people who got accepted to different schools, I was just thinking the same thing. Howard's about the only safety.. but we shall see.. Congrats on all your acceptances though, have you decided where you're going?

- allofmylove
  • Monday, April 27 2009 at 07:13 PM

Yes it's been great. All in all I am happy with Loyola and the opportunities that it will bring forth in terms of my future career. Regardless I think American is a great school. D.C. seems to be the proverbial launching pad for int'l human rights.

- swmontgomery
  • Thanks!

Thanks for the compliment! And congrats to you too, good job on the scholarships!
