ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

Was scoring higher on LSAT than my crappy sept score.

Retaking and hoping for atleast 5-7 more points in December.

11-21-07
finished all apps listed
just have to mail in cert letters
Can't wait for some good decisions! Been looking forward to this for a long time!

12-08-07 complete at Cuse! Can't wait to get my Dec LSAT results back.

12-20-07 Finally got my LSAT score back. 159!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

12-26-07: Hope all had a great Christmas and santa brought all the presents (acceptances) wanted. I've decided on 5 more schools to apply to:

1-reach American
2-reach Wisco
3-Target -St. John's
4-Target -Northeastern
5-Penn State or Pitt
6-probably a Chicago school... not sure which one

12-30-07: Added my final schools. Thinking I've spend enough money to buy a small island on these apps by now...

01-06-08:Happy new year to all! Called all schools last week to see what they needed to go complete feels like its taking forever... stupid Dec LSAT. Suffolk let me know they req Dean's cert (which I didn't know). So today I took it to the dean's office and they told me it will be 2 weeks til he gets around to it! Geeze!

01-17-08: First acceptance today from Rutgers Newark! WOOT! I'm going to law school next year. Also, finally went complete at Suffolk.

01-18-08: Wow! Good week this week. In at IUIPUI and NESL. IUIPUI came in an email and NESL came in big white packet via snail mail.

01-19-08: SWEET! In at cuse today via snail mail large packet. Cool bumper sticker and T-shirt included. I'm feeling so blessed!

01-21-08: snail mail from Cal Western acceptance letter! This week was great!

01-22-08: In at U of Pacific. Came in large snail mail packet. Stoked about that one. I know Sacramento isn't exactly the warmest place on Earth but it has got to be better than this midwestern weather! Also went complete at American (not holding my breath though)

01-24-08: Complete at Wisco today and in at Penn State. WOOOO! This cycle is going great. Also got letters from U of Pac and Cali Western saying they will cover some costs if I fly out to visit. Looks like I may see some sunny Cali days soon! Feeling so blessed!

01-26-08: In at Quinnipiac and Hofstra with $$. Hofstra came in small snail mail envelope Quinn came via email. Since I'm in at a CT school guess I'll have to take up polo or something uppety like that ;) Also after emailing Northeastern about going complete, a day later they send me a complete email... interesting. Lost in the shuffle perhaps?

01-28-08: Small snail mail letter today from NYLS letting me know of acceptance and scholarship. YES! Even with the scholarship it is still an expensive school, but I'll consider it.

02-01-08: Got some scholarship offers. Still don't have a clue where I want to go. I'm really stoked to hear from St. John's, Case, Buffalo, American, and U of Wisco. But I'm also really surprised I got in everywhere I did!

02-02-08: In at Suffolk today! Yes! Came in snail mail large white packet. Nice finish to a long day of mock trial. Uggh!

02-04-08: In at Pace today with $$$. Nice! Don't know much about the school though.

02-07-08: In at Case today via email. So excited! This is a top choice of mine so very very good news!

02-08-08: In at Albany via short email. BUff and St.John's via snail mail large packets. This cycle is going so well I can't even believe it!

02-11-08: In at Loyola Chi via call from the Dean. How cool! Cycle is wrapping up for me pretty soon. The schools left are my top choices, so we'll have to see what happens.

02-15-08: In at CUNY today via large snail mail packet. Seems like a bargain, but I've read some pretty nasty things about location and overall negative physical attributes of the campus. Right now (unless I hear back positive from NEU, WISCO, or American) it will most likely be Case/Rutgers/or Pacific for next year.

02-18-08: Just got over a whopper of a flu. Completely wiped me out. I've been a bit worried about NEU so I called them and left a message inquiring about the status of my app. I know I'm complete but haven't heard anything else. NEU is one of my top choices. Also WISCO said my decision letter is in the mail. YIKES! It could easily go either way. I'll be praying for a positive though. I'm going back to recouping from this deathly illness now. . .

02-21-08: Finally over that terrible flu. Heard back from Wisco today via small snail mail letter-Waitlist. Bummer. I'm betting their waitlist is pretty fat so I'm not putting any money on me having a shot there. Too bad cause its a pretty neat place. Oh well. I still have American and NEU to hear back from.

02-22-08: Finally heard back from American via small snail mail letter -Waitlist. Thats 2 WL in 2 days! Oh well, I'm still anxious to hear from NEU. If I don't hear positive from NEU I'll probably be at Case next year.

03-04-08: Called NEU, U of I, and Kent today out of frustration. NEU said I'll have my decision by April 15th... hope they'll let the other schools know since their deadlines are like April 01. Kent said my decision should be coming my way soon. U of I said my application has been 'held' and will be reviewed again in a few weeks. Pretty frustrating again as most school deposit deadlines are Aprilish.

03-05-08: Cool email from Case saying I have a scholarship of 9k a year. It's conditional on maintaing a 2.33 GPA. Not too shabby! They're baiting the hook and I will most likely bite.

04-04-08: Went and visited Case and Loyola over spring break. Both schools were neat in their own way. Case is beautiful and right now I'm 99% set for CWRU for next year. I've sent my deposit in and everything.

04-08-08: email today from Case saying they can actually give more scholly than before. That's such great news!

04-10-08: WL today from NEU. Not really surprised... or concerned.

04-22-08: Called Chi Kent today they said no decision yet. Geeze. They are taking forever. I'm glad they were not one of my top choices, I'd be dying.

04-25-08: letter from Kent=Deferred. Not upset about it. They took way too long though.

04-10-08: just got letter from U of I today dated 04-10 =rejected. Not really upset about it. Keeping me humble I suppose.

***All scholarship info is yearly***

Please make any suggestions or comments about schools or school selection.

Any person who goes through the horrible process of applying to law school deserves to get in somewhere wonderful. GOOD LUCK to all!

Hey. No I will not be taking the LSAT again. For what I want to do with my degree it doesn't really matter what school I go to. Also, no I will not be applying to the other schools indicated: five-hundred in application processing fees is enough lol. Well, anyway, goodluck on your retake. Keep me posted on your applications.

Hope you give University of Bufalo Law a close look. Other than Case Western, UB is the highest rated law school on your list. I'm a first year student there and all my profs are Ivy League Law School grads. My Criminal Law Prof (Yale Law grad) wrote our textbook !

Thanks for your note. My 1 L experience was a journey. All "First Years" as they are called at UB take a course together for a week prior to the rest of the law school arriving for the start of the fall term. My Torts, Criminal Law, and Property Courses are all about 70-80 students but taught by top Ivy League Law grads. My Criminal Law Prof, together with two Stanford Law Profs, wrote the text for that course. My Legal Writing and Reasoning Course was about 20 students and VERY INTENSIVE. That course continues next semester with an emphasis on legal argument and where the capstone activity is writing an brief to the Appeals Court ! And in January there is the three week Bridge Term that is unique to UB. First years use this period to work intensively with the law librarians and become proficient in both Westlaw and Lexis.

you've still got a much higher GPA. It seems like you don't have many reaches though, is that because you have your heart set on NY schools? I've visited Albany a couple years ago and it's beautiful, I'd choose either Albany or UB because UB is a bargain. Have you thought about Northeastern in Boston? I think you'd be competitive there. I see you've applied to UPacific too, I have a fee waiver from them but I don't know if I want to apply, what's the draw?

  • re: Cal West
  • Friday, February 01 2008 at 11:37 AM

I grew up and went to college in SD and I should warn that Cal Western isn't well respected among the non-legal community. But I've been told it's well known for supplying the local area with well trained lawyers. CW has been on an upward trend for at least a decade and has good potential. However, everyone I've asked has said to take UoP over CW (even w/ scholarship).

Keep me informed and not all of us from CT play polo...haha! PS: Quinnipiac is a great school - very well known in CT and has a great reputation for placement in the CT/RI area but not much reach beyond the NE region. KEEP THE ACCEPTANCES ROLLING IN!!!

- drew82abndiv
  • ...
  • Sunday, February 03 2008 at 07:10 AM

Haha...it is definitely nice to have an array of acceptances from which to choose! I don't know a TON about Quinnipiac I just know that I have talked to many people in the CT area regarding the school and they say that it holds a decent amount of weight and is a very reputable school. I think if you finish in the top 5% you have a shot at BigLaw and in the top 25-30% you have a good chance of getting a very high paying job in the CT/RI area depending on what it is that you are interested in pursuing. I am not a Yanks fan at all and there is no way the Pats fall into that catagory. I have been rooting for the Pats since Pat the Patriot was their mascot and they couldn't buy a win in any game! We have done our share of suffering with both the Pats and the Red Sox and now is the time of glory! You have to admire what both teams have done as of late and I think they will prove to be the best team in the nation in tonights big game! I wish you the absolute best of luck with the rest of your cycle and if you end up choosing Quinnipiac I will most likely be right up at UCONN so we will have to meet up and pity ourselves for our decision to deal with law school! Keep in touch and BEST OF LUCK!!!! -Drew

Hey thanks for the congrats! I'm definitely planning on going to one of the LS days to see what it's about. A lot on my decision will depend on if they give me a scholarship, plus also how I feel after seeing it in person. :) I'm all superstitious so I don't really like to speculate on schools that I haven't even gotten into yet. But of where I have been accepted to thus far, Pacific and Denver are my top choices right now.

congrats on case, that is so great! i actually heard initially via email about my acceptance and they let me know about the scholarship then too... but that might be different for regular decision applicants... i think i read somewhere on their website that they make all of their scholarship announcements by march 31st so unfortunately it might be a while til you find out. as for asd's i'm not sure they designate specific days but i did get an email saying something about a housing open house sometime in june so that's when i'm planning to visit. good luck with the rest of your schools!

Hello Again, Want to make a few key points about UB Law" --No curve in any of the classes...that means folks help one another, share outlines with one another, celebrate one another's successes ! --After the first year there is ONLY ONE REQUIRED COURSE....THIS MEANS THAT YOU CRAFT YOUR LAW PROGRAM ! --Latest national study shows that UB is in the VERY TOP TIER when it comes to percentage of students employed at graduation ! --And yes, Buffalo gets cold...but where else could you engage in WORLD CLASS SNOWBALL FIGHTS... Case is a great school, but Pacific almost didn't make Tier 2 this year...was rated 100th ! All the best !

Hey, thanks so the congrats. You are doing amazingly well this cycle as well! Any school that you prefer over another? Community organizing has been an interesting experience. For the past six months, I have been organizing around economic justice issues(i.e., promoting and educating the public about policies and programs that they can access to improve their financial stability) here in Colorado. It job has its ups and downs. For one thing, we dont always looks to the community to set the direction of our campaigns--which is really horrible. Also, alot of community based organizations battle over turf and resources. It seems that we are all fighting for the same limited grant money and media coverage, this can sometimes lead to groups promoting their agenda over another organization's mission. This is also unfortunate. The best part of the experience for me has been the opportunity to build community leaders. I have met with many people who these campaigns affect and been able to connect them to different opportunities for them to become involved or even just more knowledge about the issue. However, many of my coworkers do not approach the work in the same fashion. Despite these differences, the communities are always exicted and glad that we are doing work on their behalf. what type of community organizing are you looking to get into?

i understand what you're saying about st. john's. it is a flooded market. but i feel the same problem sort of exists at loyola, you still have kids ahead of you for jobs from UChicago, Northwestern, and Chicago Kent, not to mention kids from across the nation who just want to live in Chicago. i guess st. john's is my top choice now given it's ranking...but i'm staying on american's waitlist. i see quinnipiac gave you a big scholarship too. they're paying for me to come to conn. and interview for a full ride, which would be tough to pass up. any chance you'll be heading there for that as well in early april?

yeah, but chicago would be nice. i have a cousin who went to michigan state though and he got a pretty good job in chicago, so it is possible. i'm from ohio and case is a great school. it's not in the nicest neighborhood, but the campus itself is fairly isolated from everything else. and i'm not sure about how i got the quinnipiac offer. you had to apply to quinn before jan. 15th and indicate your professional carreer plans. i study theorhetical conceptions of justice as an undergrad and i wrote my personal statement about applying those concepts to first amendment interpretations, which is obviously academic. then they just contacted me. you should consider getting in touch with them, as they pay for the flight, hotel, and all other expenses. so at the very least, you get a free trip to check out what is supposed to be a nice campus. it's called the dean's fellowship scholarship or something

hey there. still not sure about top choices since i haven't heard back from 3 important ones (Brooklyn, Cardozo, and Loyola LA). The Case scholarship is tempting, but I have a feeling I will be making a last minute decision. Congrats on all your acceptances. That is really exciting!

great about the scholarship! let me know how your campus visit goes. i hear from a current student at case that the best place to live is in cleveland heights (if you have a car). if you don't, there's an apt building called "the triangle" that is about a 5 min walk from the law school bldg. i guess the neighborhood of little italy is also really close to the school, with some sections in walking distance. good luck w/ your other schools but i hope to see you at case : )

Hey!! Congrats on Case as well. Let me know how you like it. I'm excited to go for their ASW, especially to get to meet other admitted/attending students. I'm still waiting on a couple other schools, but I am fairly certain that I will be at Case this fall. Hope to see you there!

Thanks! Well, since Penn rejected me, I guess UVA bc it's the highest ranking and is in a beautiful area, not far from my U-grad (W&L). If you mean of the ones I have a chance of getting accepted, then I guess Maryland. I'm interested in enviro law and don't want to get into too much debt and like B'more. I'd feel more love for my in-state Rutgers if they offered me money, but unfortunately four years of bustin my butt at a top school for almost all A's doesn't mean anything to them! Do you have a top choice?

Same to you! That's funny...I was just looking at your lsn the other day thinking the same thing, except that you have like a million more acceptances than me, lol. Plus, our numbers will be even more similar once my fall grades are processed through LSAC. I'm really leaning towards UF right now. How about you--what's your #1? I basically have a week to decide my future, since Case wants a deposit sent in by then. I'm not 100% sold on the school yet, and I don't really have the cash to send in deposits to a bunch of schools and just prolong the decision, especially when I'd probably pick Florida over Case anyways. I don't know, though...I'm so torn. I need some guidance.

  • Hey!
  • Friday, March 28 2008 at 09:42 AM

I wasn't really looking for your advice when I said that...it was more of a general statement of "wow, I feel really lost in this whole process" kind of thing, but thanks nonetheless :) I think it's mean how schools are expecting payment already when schools haven't even given out all of their decisions yet...I guess there's a decent reason for it, but it almost requires you to be pessimistic about your chances at the remaining schools. Oh well, hopefully we both make the right choice...Are you submitting the first choice deposit to Case then?

Congratulations on Case, too! I'm a native Clevelander so if you have any questions I'd be happy to try and help. Take care and see you in August!
