06-07 cycle: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/wajihc0607
Completed one semester in a Master degree program in economics.
04.03.08: Visited SIU today. Spoke with admissions rep (not cmte member). She said that about 800 apps were received this year while there were only 660 last year. As of right now, there are 123 people on the waitlist. In the past few years, there have been 60-80 on the waitlist, with 15-20 offered a spot. Class size is around 145. This is not looking hopeful.
04.11.08: Signed up for the June LSAT.
04.15.08: Called Memphis about TIP. There were 111 apps submitted this cycle. Additionally, UTK received about 20 apps this time, and last year recommended 5-6 to TIP. There is a total of "20 seats" available this year. This means mathematically that there are 14-15 slots available for Memphis TIP applicants.
04.21.08: Accepted to TIP. Received 8" by 11" yellow/brown envelope. Had four pages in it: acceptance letter and signature form.
05.07.08: Received two emails from Akron. One stated that I was admitted to the part-time day program, but wait-listed for the full-time program. The other email was about some scholarship, but it did not state anything about an award. Confused? I then called their office to confirm that this admission was not a mistake. It was the real deal, and apparently I got a full-tuition scholarship, too ($25k/yr). I put down the full amount of a $350 deposit.
I guess that I will not be attending TIP. This also allows me to commit 100% attention to the LSAT, whereas with TIP, I would have had to split time in early June.
SIU email: "For the Fall 2008 entry, we have received 151 deposits for an entering class of 130. Therefore, we have not admitted any waitlisted applicants. Currently, there are 178 applicants on the waitlist, and our waitlist is not ranked.
Our second deposit is due on June 10, 2008."
05.14.08: Withdrew all the remaining applications.
07.03.08: 151. I'm going to plan on going to Akron.
Finished one semester at UAkron law, and then left. I decided to complete my Master degree in economics. I started full-time employment in Mar 2010.
I brokered in NYC in bonds and preferred stocks for several months, and then wrote about them for several more months. Eventually, I worked in oil markets pricing in Houston for more than 5 years. Currently, I am employed in such a role.
I want to work in family and immigration law. I retook the LSAT in Sept 2017, and got a 151. I hope to continue working full-time and attend law school part-time.
