Extra Curricular Information

This is my second time around the block.

I will provide more information, including real numbers, at the end of the cycle.

Here is the additional info.:
- nontrad applicant
- previous legal experience
- CASA and other volunteer services
- was placed on academic probation many many years ago due to disadvantaged circumstances. returned many years later to complete 4 yr. degree with uptrending grades
- I've applied to other lower ranked schools and received acceptances in all of them but I am only listing the schools that really matter to me

I really struggled with placing real numbers and other personal information on this board since schools and others could now readily identify me. In addition, I am not looking forward to receiving unsightly comments from haters. Can't we all just get along? Anyway, I did it for the next incoming class. We have a responsibility to provide accurate information and assist those who are relying on us for guidance -- just as we had this cycle and those before us. I hope the information is useful to someone.

Also, please remember to give back by doing good with your law degree and don't forget to thank those who helped you along the way. By the way, I wonder where I could obtain 4 SHU t-shirts to give to my mentors who wrote my LORs as a thank you?

Additional info & updates

So, I am officially obsessed with the waiting for decisions. But it's such a horrible feeling to live life in limbo!! I'd prefer to meet friends for dinner, catch a flick or even sit in my first law school class-to-be rather than rushing home to greet "Harry" the mailman. Has anyone been afraid to open their mailbox lately? Hopefully, I will have my life back soon - at least until August. I hope that I am not as neurotic during my first year in law school. I said it, "I am going to law school!" Can you believe it? I am so psyched!!!

Some rambling thoughts at a later date ...
I am elated to see the support of other law school applicants. Who else to better understand what we are going through?

I need to remember to remain strong and brush off rejections, if they do arrive. I know something better will follow-up in the mail. Speaking of which, what's taking the schools ssoooo long? I haven't received anything in a while!!

It's been about 3 months now since I've last heard from law schools. I am so happy that I have not been considered an automatic ding but I am also becoming more anxious as the days, weeks and months wear on.

01/20/08 - NYLS
Accepted. Thick white envelope. Excited to receive my first acceptance. Whoo-hoo!!

04/05/08 - SHU
Got home in time to meet "Harry" at the mailbox for our usual Saturday morning date. There was something in his demeanor that was a little odd that day. He was a little shifty. I mean, he smiled and held small polite talk but it was sort of forced like he didn't know what else to do or say. Then it dawned on me. Could it be? This may just be the day!

So, I peered into the mailbox and saw a small, thin, white envelope with a return address from SHU. A ding, I thought. I felt my heart sink. I recalled reading somewhere on LSN that some acceptances were really disguised as rejections. So, I felt along the edges of the envelope while praying that it would measure up to the size and thickness of an acceptance. But I still didn't have a clue. The envelope felt awfully thin to me.

Harry was long gone by now and I had no one to open it. What if it's a ding? How cruel would it be to receive a rejection on my Saturday - before church Sunday - day off giving me nothing else to do but mull over it for the remainder of the weekend. I couldn't stand to open the envelope. I was just so afraid. I went through what seemed like 100 different emotions in a few seconds but quickly sucked it up and didn't bawl like a baby as I did when I learned that SHU had rejected me in 2003.

Finally, I peered into the mailbox to retrieve the other mail. Restoration Hardware catalog, bills, ShopRite advertisement and then I stumbled upon two other envelopes from SHU -- one from the Financial Aid Office and the other from the Office of Admissions. YAHOO!!!WHAT A FEELING!!!!

It goes to show that the Adcoms. really do look beyond numbers and read the applications. I was beginning to believe that my application was sitting in the reject pile collecting dust. I didn't think I had a chance. Thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!!! And, if you are purusing LSN, about the 4 t-shirts that I am looking for ... how to I go about purchasing them?

04/16/08 - Rutgers
Waitlisted. No real emotions one way or the other. Just happy that I wasn't outright rejected. Tuition costs would serve my debt load very well. Plus, it's RUTGERS. E-mailed letter of continued interest.

Good Luck and Congratulations to All!!

Congrats on the getting into Seton Hall!!!

Sunday, December 10 2006 at 07:00 PM

hey No i work for an investment bank. congrats on Seton hall. Im guessing you applied for the summer program? It seemed too shady thats why I didnt apply for that program.

On your acceptance into Seton Hall. Love your story. I too have been "stalking" the mailman while I wait. My husband laughs at me and runs to the mailbox to try to get the mail before me. If he wasn't paying for me to go to lawschool (hopefully), I think I might divorce him over that. LOL. Anyway congrats to you. I hope that I get an acceptance soon and maybe I'll see you in the fall. Also, I agree with you. I can't stand the haters either. I thought that this site was supposed to be support network and a source of information for all of us waiting to hear answers, not a place for put downs.
