I just came back from a week in Hawaii.Let me tell you..not a bad spot to have a law career. You won't be raking in 6 figures--but so what. It's Hawaii and it's freaki' AMAZING!!
Absolutely not! I'm going to law school to do something completely different from the military. I'm too afraid I'll spend 3 years in law school only to go back into the military to spend my time researching courts martial and trying kids for drug use and showing up late for work...blah!!! The military has had more than enough of my time. I'm ready for a total change.
Thanks same with you. Whats your first choice?
Best of luck on this cycle. I am going to keep you on the watchlist. You have some good schools on here, and I think that good things will happen to you.
lot of places too! Good luck man
no Pacific, Southwestern or Willamette?
Good luck on you cycle!
"Is there any chance for them to change their mind the second time around?" Yes, but you'll have to put in some *extra* effort. Some things you can do: 1. Take the LSAT in Feb. They might not officially take the Feb LSAT but if you can pull off an amazing score, I'm sure it'll help. 2. Send additional LORs from references that know you well. 3. Maybe an updated resume (assuming you can get some relevant experience between now and when they look at your app again).
I mentioned in the above post about pulling off an *amazing LSAT score* ... it doesn't have to be amazing. If you can even increase it to mid-150s (although still below their 75 percentile), you'll improve your chances immensely. Good luck!
Hi! We applied to a lot of the same schools. :) I don't know too much about TSU either. I was considering it a "safety" but who knows if I will get in anywhere else. I applied because my parents now live in Texas. I heard the school has great academic support services and lots of diversity. Two things that were really important factors in choosing a law school for me.
Hey there, I applied to Seattle about 10/28 or so, and got the acceptance package the day after Christmas. I think I was one of the first people to hear back from them, but it seems like they start releasing most of their decisions in mid-January. Best of luck to you!
Thank you! Good luck to you! I regret not applying to University of Wsshington..too late now since their deadline was yesterday
Hey, I got asked from NESL if i wanted to be on the waitlist as well. I declined because I saw in their letter to me that a decision for waitlisted applicants would not be made until right before school would start. Dont you think that's pretty ridiculous and i was just wondering why you choose to go on the waitlist.
Good luck on Seattle U. and the rest of your cycle. I'm also hoping to get in through the "special admission" program...
when u were sent that emai lfrom jmls waitlisting you, did our online status checker say "in committee review" before you get that email, and also what does your status say now?
I just created an account here. Our numbers are sort of similar. I'm glad you're having a good cycle!
on the acceptances!!!
Congrats on Thomas Jefferson!
I hear from USF via email first, then a couple of days later received a big packet via snail mail. I turned mine in Mid-November, so I'm sure you'll be hearing soon! Good luck!!
Your cycle is looking good! :)Awesome!
What are your thoughts on FAMU....if it does in fact get fully accredited this june?
I haven't checked on your profile in awhile. Congrats on your acceptances! We've gotten in a couple of the same schools. I'm waiting on Seattle too under the Access Admissions Program. Just so much waiting to do, but at least we are more than half way through this!
I visited the school this past friday. My parents live about 40 minutes away so i decided to apply for the heck of it. Since i attend FSU for undergrad the FAMU main campus is up here in tallahassee as well. Since FAMU here doesnt have the best reputation, due to their past president and all the problems they have encountered, i was visiting with the thought that the school was less than below par. I have to say though that i was more than astonished and impressed. The facility is absolutely beautiful and is in a good location in downtown orlando. I spoke with the head of admissions and she gave me a tour and told me that the ABA would be by this past week to evaluate them again. She, along with the students i spoke with, expect to be fully accredited and the public would know around june. I went again today on my way back up to tallahassee and i loved it even more. If they do get fully accredited and me being a florida resident, i will probably decide to go there. Along with being close to family, the cost is sooooo soooo cheap (compared to nova and st. thomas) and the campus, in my opinion, is a lot nicer than nova's law school as well as st. thomas. let me know if u want any more info, but otherwise thats my opinion of the school.
Congrats first of all on your cycle! :-) No snail mail or email from Howard. I just received a large envelope in the mail, however my letter was dated 3/12 and I received it 3/23. So, they may be right when they stated that you should receive something in 2 weeks :-) What is your top choice?
I recieved a large envelope and email from Howard.
Congrats on you acceptances. I beg you, if you do not plan on attending Thomas Jefferson, please withdraw. thank you(from those of us on the wait list).
i apologize. i am just not 100% sure if i want to leave CA...thats why i mass-messaged everyone. good luck, and again, congrats.
on texas southern. I'm not for sure if you decided to go here or not but have they sent you any financial aid information yet as to about how much in scholarships or grant money you would be receiving?
Good luck on Hawaii! Last week I visited Stetson and fell in love with the school! However, Loyola is offering money so I think I'll go visit them before I make a final decision. At least you received an email though....the only time I received an email was when my application was complete. After that, I heard nothing until I received my envelope in the mail. I would call again (their could possibly have been a postal service mix-up). If you don't receive anything by Friday, I would give them another call. Hoep this helps :-)
I'm leaning towards USF heavily! I think I'll end up here! I go visit next week. Yes, S.U stung. But everything happens for a reason! You'll enjoy Diego. I have a friend who is a 1L at TJ and she loves it..
not too sure. What about you? I mean I think I might need to get some real life experience to sharpen my personal statement
well see. Still waiting on my cycle to finish!
Good luck on you cycle.
