Hi. Just wondering what was so bad about your experience at Cooley?
Yeah, it feels great to have one acceptance, congrats to you as well. I just wish all the other schools had such quick turnarounds!
I didn't apply to Cooley but I did apply to other safe schools. What happened at Cooley and why was it such a bad choice. I guess I have been telling myself that it's up to the student to succeed and do well no matter what. Was it really a bad school??? Let me know and CONGRATS on your first acceptance! I am sure you will get some others! I am just like you in that I just want ONE acceptance (but prefer a whole bunch! ;-) )
haha. Thanks! I am sooo happy! They sent me an e-mail but also Diana called me. She is the assistant director of admissions. I met her personally at a law day in Kansas City and she is pretty much the reason I even applyed so I'm not sure if they are calling everyone or if she just called me because she sort of knows me. THANKS AGAIN! I'm so happy... you have NO idea!
loved the comment about Ramen Noodles and Chicago on Phi4life940's wall- so funny! Congrats on the acceptance.. more will follow- You are so brave to go through this crap again... If I were you I would have taken my box and gone under the bridge! lol what was so bad about Cooley? they keep sending me stuff in the mail. ugh
HAHAHAHAAAA point taken! LOL well I'm not going there!
Hey. Don't get down on yourself about Arkansas. They have a really ignorant and dumb way of doing admissions. They use a formula. Honestly, what law school today says "we realize that the LSAT is not an accurate way to determine how you will perform in law school but because we're lazy and don't want to consider a candidates ENTIRE package we're just going to look at the LSAT score and your UGPA." I can't figure out why they do that. Don't worry about it. Seriously, I have been a hogs fan ALL my life but they lost a little bit of me when they pulled that crap. Keep your head up!
Yeah, not all that surprised or really all that bummed. I've heard good things about it but there are other places I'd rather go than UA. It also didn't help with the huge surge of apps this cycle as the letter indicated.
Best of luck fellow UW buddy, go Badgers. I was rejected last year by UW law, and I don't think I really want to spend any more time in Madison, so no worries if you dont get in.
I applied FT to all of the schools. Thanks and good luck to you too.
thanks so much! yes miami is definitely a good weather change from MI. good luck on the rest of your cycle number twin!
So basically UofA in fayettville does a math problem (your LSAT score plus your GPA times some number) and if it isn't above a certain number than you are rejected. When I did mine I was three points off so I was going to get rejected if I submitted an app. I even called and said "so let me get this straight...you're the only law school that ignores everything except for GPA and LSAT score!?!?" She basically said "yes." If you don't meet that number you either have to be from Arkansas (where it is lowered) or you have to have cured cancer I guess. They said less than 1% of people who don't meet their minimum number get in. Just an ignorant process. I was so pissed but whatever...I'm over it.
Yup, I went to U of I. I applied FT to Marquette, the letter I got was a little envelope which of course I wasn't expecting much from. It turned out to be a more to come acceptance letter and I got a full packet a few days ago. I see we have a lot of the same schools so Good Luck!
Thanks man, I appreciate it. I'm really excited about it and will most likely be there next Fall. Looks like you have lots of choices & will have more. Hope you get Marquette!
No prob. Like you, this is my second application cycle so I know how important it is to withdraw. Good luck with the rest of your cycle.
Looks like you've had a hell of a trip, Badger. But it seems you definitely want it. Best of luck in your applications. Looks like we have a lot of the same schools.
Hey man. Thanks alot for the words of wisdom. I needed that. It sounds childish but I didn't apply to UMKC because of something their Dean said to me at a law fair. I asked if they honored the LSAC fee waiver (as I asked every other school the same thing) and he looked at me up and down and said "We only give fee waivers to people who need them." And I said...I had to send financial records proving that I'm very financially poor (maybe not those exact words but you get the idea) and he looked at me again with a weird look on his face as if because I was white I was wealthy and said "well...we seldom give them out." I'm thinking...it's automatic at each school and he's being a huge racist right to my face. As if, if I were black he wouldn't have said that you know? It just really pissed me off and I felt like if that was their mentality I didn't want to have anything to do with them.... and I hate missouri. lol But like I said. Thanks for being helpful with your words. They really helped man.
Thanks for the encouraging post man. You likewise...keep your head up..your numbers are good. You will get in somewhere. To be honest, this whole process has left me with a sick feeling about applying to law school. Such a huge money making game! Kudos to you for enduring it a second time.
lol, i call myself dingmachine b/c of my numbers. suffice to say i had a lot of hardship during school (home invasion robberies, death of family members, etc.) and it was piled on one after the other. BUT, it looks like some adcomms are seeing past it which is good. best of luck on the rest of your cycle!
the same thing about Stetson! And +1 on the warm weather and the beautiful campus. Good luck to ya for the rest of the cycle, especially getting back in to your UG.
Did you receive your scholarship info with acceptance letter or seperate? Just got my letter today, but won't be able to attend wo some support. Thanks for the info
I know I need to be more optimistic- I'm just worried because I'm international and they don't take that many of us!
Hey so I got into UMKC too. How long did it take you to receive their packet they called and said Iwas in and set up an interview for a scholarship. They also said I'd get a packet in the mail but that was like two weeks ago
yeah i totally appreciate them doing that. it sits well with me (obviously)and says a lot about their school. best of luck with the rest of your cycle and congrats on your successes.
SLU has a really great patent law area and is very well received around the Missouri area especially St. Louis. However, it is double the state schools. Thanks for ur insight into UMKC Good Luck with the rest of your cycle!
ah thats ok, i had to at least ask, lol. I got in to Appalachian today. SO happy, but still keeping my fingers crossed for WVU. Don't have family there, but I know about 10 people that go there right now. Plus I went to Marshall (in state rival) for undergrad so I'd be going over to the dark side, lol.
Good luck on the rest of your cycle! And I agree about withdrawing from schools you know deep down inside you aren't going to attend : )
I just saw someone else got "pooled" from WVU. Same LSAT score. So weird. Thought I'd share.
Got the same letter from WVU. I don't really understand what they are trying to say. Maybe they are just slow and are trying to buy more time.
Hey, love your post from 2/2/10! Although I am not withdrawing from my WL universities ESPECIALLY not from Marquette, I feel the same way. But I hope I can be accepted somewhere closer to home (in IL). I am shocked about NIU decision about your application. I've seen some crazy stats on this web site this cycle. So, good luck to you with everything!
Yeah, it's hard but it is the right thing to do instead of taking up a seat to potentially someone's dream school. Good luck on your final decision!
Nope, my numbers are all real and actual. I'd like to think that political leanings don't fit anywhere into their decisions and that they would look at my ability to self start and lead independent of what my ideological basis might be. My guess is that it has more to do with Cooley than anything. Having that anywhere on your record is the (legal) educational equivalent of hooking up with someone with the clap. You might be clean, but try convincing your next partner that's the case. It's an uphill battle.
Congrats on your acceptances thus far! I am hoping Marquette pulls me off of the waitlist. I got the same email on 4/7. Do you think they sent that to everyone?
Thanks man. Yes, it was hard turning down Big Red, but I went there for undergrad and want something different. Chicago is a great city and Loyola Chicago seems like a great school so I'm completely happy with my choice. Your "having the clap" analogy is funny but you are probably very right. Despite that, you seem to be handling it like a champ! Good luck man!
The sticker price did worry me. I am looking to focus on Health Law, so I contacted the school and found out that since the Health Law program is #1 nationally, the start pay is higher than the school's median start salary (by about $20K per year). This put most of my nerves to rest. Also, the current placement rate is over 92% even with bum economy this year...and I really just liked the school. It was tough not getting any scholarship $$$ the first year, but I've heard that they give more $$$ in the 2nd and 3rd year based on end-of-year placements. It is good to hear from a potential classmate...I was getting worried being the only "A" for Attending. Thought I would get it started.
Yep me too. They could start reject/admit any day now. <sick of waiting>
That makes sense. I have a feeling that I will be stuck on this waitlist until I get the dreaded letter "We regret to inform you..". I am just surprised I haven't seen anything yet considering part time app deadline was on the 1st as well. Time to start making other plans. I won't withdraw but I need to start finding plan B.
thanks for the congrats. best of luck with the wl!
Too funny! Keeping hope alive. :)
I really appreciate it. It's been a looonnnggg ride my friend but it couldn't have worked out better. SLU's legit for sure! I've talked to several people from the area as well as 2 recent SLU law grads, and everyone says that it's right up there with Wash U. With an excellent regional reputation, an awesome city to live in and great job prospects, I couldn't ask for more. I guess I'll be seeing you in the fall.
Didn't get the 3rd reaffirmation email. Sucks!
I read that someone got accepted off of Marquette's waitlist on 7/29/2010. She received a phone call asking if she was still interested. After the call she got an email saying she was accepted. She said her deposit is due on Friday August 6, 2010. This was reported on TLS. It seems they are still accepting a few folks.
Good luck in STL!! :)
How come you are not applying to UW- Madison? We're applying to a lot of the same schools so I'll keep an eye on you. However, you #'s are better than mine... oops. Is this your 2nd cycle?
