Additional info & updates

Buffalo is my #1 choice!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Deferred from Akron. It came in a thin, white envelope. I am keeping my fingers crossed!

Rejected from Brooklyn. I knew it was coming...but I hate it anyway. I feel like shit, I am going to bed.

YES!!! Accepted to Toledo! I love you guys!

01/02/05 - Things have been pretty quiet. Only 13 more days until I have access to my mailbox @ school. I hope something good is waiting for me!!!

01/06/06 - Rejected from Hofstra! SHIT!

01/11/06 - YES! Accepted @ WNEC!!! They called me on the phone to give me the good news. :)

01/15/06 - WAITLISTED from Pace!!! Why couldn't they just accept me??? :(

01/22/06 - Still waiting on all of my top choices! I thought I'd hear back earlier from a lot of places, since my most of my apps went out well before November. Oh well. I'm keeping the hope alive! Tomorrow could be the big day! :)

01/24/06 - Got an e-mail from NYLS saying my application is complete. C'mon baby, let me in!!!

02/04/06 - Waitlisted @ Quinnipiac. Damn! That hurts. I thought they would've let me in. I guess it's better than being rejected. I'm still hoping that my top choices will show me some love. The waiting is killing me.

02/08/06 - WAITLISTED @ ALBANY!!! FUCK!!!! I HATE MY LIFE!!!!!! SOMEONE SHOW ME SOME LOVE I AM SICK OF GETTING PISSED ON!!!!!!!

02/09/06 - Rejected from Syracuse :( I feel really, really crappy.

02/10/06 - Thanks for the kind words everyone! I'm over Syracuse. They are too expensive for me anyway! Buffalo & Cleveland are still a possibility, and both of them are much, much cheaper. Hopefully there'll be some love in the mailbox today! :)

ACCEPTED to Franklin Pierce via e-mail!!! NICE!

02/11/06 - Accepted @ Touro, with CA$H MONEY! :)

02/15/06 - CSU BABY! HELL YES! On 2/13 I recieved an e-mail intended for admitted students. I called to see what the deal was, and they told me I was admitted & to watch for something in the mail soon. :) I'm completely psyched! I can't wait for the letter to get here. I want to hear the details!

03/18/06 - WAITLISTED...AGAIN!!! This time @ Buffalo & Baltimore. I feel like the mailbox is kicking my ass. I am getting old and tired. My nerves are shot, and I am exhausted.

03/23/06 - REJECTED from NYLS...whatever.

04/07/06 - Withdrawn from Touro. I didn't send them the $300 seat deposit - so they sent me an e-mail saying they assumed I'm no longer interested. Adios, Touro.

04/07/06 - Someone take me off one of these damn waitlists!!! Christ!!! BUFFALO!!! IF YOU CALL ME, I WILL COME!!! LET ME IN! PLEASE!!! I WILL MAKE YOU PROUD!

04/15/06 - Toledo is DONE. I didn't fork over the $75 to retain a spot. I wasn't very interested. I don't like the idea of a "transitional program."

05/07/06 - W. New England...things just aren't gonna work out between us. I respect that they offered me a seat, and gave me a sweet phone call...but damn, I can't go everywhere. Best of luck to anyone on their waitlist who might be reading this. A spot may have opened up for you!

BUFFALO....PLEASE LET ME IN!!!

05/16/06 - Well, Pace accepted too many people into their FT division - so I'm being offered a spot for their PT evening program. Not exactily a dream come true...but I'll give it some thought. I want BUFFALO!

05/25/06 - Met with the Dean of Admissions today...apparently, as of right now, they have more seat deposits than they expected. This is crappy news. :(

05/30/06 - Found out I was accepted @ Baltimore! I'm off the waitlist, baby! Hell yeah. I haven't thought about that school in so long, I'm going to have to do a little research! I didn't send them any letters or do any visits...so I'm hopeful that my extra effort @ Buffalo might pay off!

06/08/06 - Well, I was hoping that by this time of year - I'd be done with the application process, but I'm stuck chillin' on the waitlists @ Buffalo and Albany. I think Buffalo's "intent to enroll" forms should be due back in about a week or so...I'll call them up at that time to see if there's ANY hope for me.

I am going to consider myself W'ed from Franklin Pierce. I didn't fork over the 1st deposit, and I'm pretty sure that it was due a long time ago. The place was just too expensive and too far away from my people in B-Lo.

06/09/06 - W @ Pace's PT program. I'm not really into PT stuff. C'mon Buffalo!!! Let me in!

06/20/06 - Spoke to UB Law admissions...it looks as if there will be a need for waitlisted applicants! There's no saying how many spots are open, or that I'll be able to score a seat...but at least I have a chance!!! This is AWESOME news! :) :) I feel alive, baby!!! Buffalo: CALL ME!

06/21/06 - I'm not feelin' Baltimore. Had to give them the "W."

06/28/06 - As of now, Buffalo has ~150 people on their waitlist. They are taking people as seats become available. So far, they have taken a very small number of waitlisted applicants (probably less than 10). Hopefully there'll be more movement and I'll get a phone call! It could happen any day - the waiting is killing me! If this lasts until late August (1st day of classes @ UB), I'll probably go insane!

07/18/2006 - In @ U. Albany! :)

07/27/2006 - *@$%&(*@$(*%%&*(@%&*)(@#(*%(&*@#$%^(*& FUCK!!!!!!!!

07/28/2006 - Nevermind. I'm BACK on the waitlist @ UB.

07/31/2006 - After much consideration - I'm rejecting Cleveland. I'm headed to Albany, unless Buffalo surprises me with an acceptance. :)

Nervous
Sunday, December 04 2005 at 07:00 PM

I am nervous as hell! I hope I get accepted somewhere soon!

albany
Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

hey, the acceptance letter came in a big envelope. When did you apply there? My letter came in about a month after. What do you think of this school?

Albany
Monday, November 28 2005 at 07:00 PM

You shouldn't be to nervous... you have good numbers for Albany. I see you also applied to Pace, hopefully we will both hear from them very soon. Good Luck!

Pace
Monday, November 28 2005 at 07:00 PM

Yes, I did interview. I interviewed with the enviro law department... I thought it went well. I really liked the campus and everyone seemed really nice. Perhaps, I'll see you there!

albany
Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

Best of luck to you. I think your numbers are good for Albany.

Akron
Wednesday, November 30 2005 at 07:00 PM

Here's the deal: I applied to the FT division and they called to congratulate me on my acceptance to the PT division. I asked what the deal was and they said something to the effect that they expect this year's incoming class to be at least as competitive as the class last year. So they just made the executive decision to toss me in the PT. I didn't get a letter saying I was deferred but that's what it essentially is for the FT division. Hope this is helpful.

Good luck!
Wednesday, November 30 2005 at 07:00 PM

Great list of schools, looks familiar. ;) Good luck on your apps, hopefully we'll hear soon!

re:
Wednesday, November 02 2005 at 07:00 PM

i heard from quinnipiac about two weeks ago, since the letter went home and i am in hawaii i dont know what it looked like or anything, just heard rom my parents. best of luck.

Still No Word
Sunday, December 04 2005 at 07:00 PM

12/17/05 and still no definite decision from any school! My hopes of being accepted somewhere before Christmas are starting to fade!! C'mon baby!!! Someone send me some sweet holiday LOVE!

pandamafia cannot follow directions.
Friday, October 07 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! I was going to apply to Buffalo...but there was that additional essay...that sounds so bad but whatever! Good luck! What\\\'s your number one choice?

Thanks for the congrats, i think u have a good shot too.

re: congrats (on syracuse)
Wednesday, December 07 2005 at 07:00 PM

BlackJesus, The letter was dated 12/22, but I got it today (I live in Kansas). The letter came in a big white envelope. Thanks for the congrats, I'm psyched. Are you familiar with the university and city?

One more thing
Wednesday, December 07 2005 at 07:00 PM

Good luck to you this cycle.

Congrats on UT
Tuesday, October 04 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Toledo! Might see you there in the fall.

Yes...
Tuesday, October 04 2005 at 08:00 PM

Actually I'm from the detroit area and my entire extended family is from toledo. Both my parents went to UT for law school. ITs a very nice school. This year they chose not to renew their dean and the assistant dean is taking over (not sure why this happened...everyone loved the old dean and he is staying on to continue teaching). The building is nice and has been added on to. ITs actually identicle to when my parents went there, but its been kept up well. Not sure if I'll end up there or what, my girl freind is hoping to enter a PHD program in Economics, and they only have a masters...so we'll see. Congrats again! P.S. you have nearly identicle numbers to my best friend so its encouraging to see you accepted there.

congrats
Friday, September 30 2005 at 08:00 PM

Isn't an awesome feeling to actually know you're going to law school? I'm happy for ya! Where's your top choice?

Hofstra
Friday, October 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

Sorry to hear about Hofstra. I see you got into Toleda where I was rejected; congrats! How were you informed about Hofstra?

Congrats...
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

...on WNEC! It is always a good feeling to have choices. Thank you for you support on 4LS. I am ok with my OSU rejection, I probably would not have actually gone there anyway with my other acceptances.

thanks for
Saturday, November 12 2005 at 07:00 PM

the congrats. Just have a little faith and hopefully you will get in at UB. Nova letting me in shows that it is not all about numbers all the time. Good luck!

Wednesday, December 14 2005 at 07:00 PM

ehh dont let it get u down, a girl with our same lsats and a tad lower gpa then mine got into Q with close to a full ride, so i guess theres no set formula to this... good luck man i bet you will make it. is it ur top choice? keep me posted!

Good luck!
Friday, January 06 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey fellow 4lawschooler, Good luck on the rest of your applications!

Good Luck at Buffalo
Friday, April 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

I hope you get in there! I will be rooting for ya! I never really felt comfortable with my essays there. If yours were better than mine I think you are in.

UB
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Hey, good luck at UB. I think you have a really good chance. Make sure you keep going to all those events that they are holding, like the open house on the 15th. Congrats on your other acceptances too!

NYLS
Monday, November 28 2005 at 07:00 PM

What do you think about NYLS... I've heard some pretty negative things about it, but I'm still considering since I would love to go to school in the city. I feel like I have been waiting on them forever!!! Hopefully we will both get some good news soon!

Brooklyn Law
Sunday, September 18 2005 at 08:00 PM

Just wondering if you received a lot of junk mail from Brooklyn even though you weren't accepted. I've been getting mail from them and it's been giving me some hope. But I don't want to be in for a bad surprise.

hey
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

sorry about brooklyn. maybe i'll see you at toledo. i have heard some good things about this school. my only gripe will be if residency can't be established for 2 and 3L. good luck with the rest of the apps.

Syracuse
Friday, February 03 2006 at 07:00 PM

Sorry about Syracuse, it looked like you had a good chance looking at the others that have been accepted. Im really nervous now as we have similar numbers.

Sorry about Syracuse
Friday, April 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

Sorry about not getting in there. I am nervous now about my own application.

Albany
Thursday, January 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

Good luck with Albany. I would really love to get in there but my chances are a lot worse than yours. Im sure that you have a good chance of getting in once withdrawls and other apps come in. Good luck!!!

:(
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

I'm sorry you are feeling down! This whole applying to law school thing is very tough on your nerves! But hang in there! Hopefully you'll get in at your number 1 pick!

Brooklyn
Sunday, September 18 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thans for your answer regarding brooklyn...I guess I won't get my hopes up because they're sending me mail. Damn them! Good luck with your remaining schools

Buffalo
Friday, February 03 2006 at 07:00 PM

Good luck with Buffalo and thanks for the supportive words. I need them, this whole process has had me stresssed out for months now.

Franklin Pierce
Wednesday, January 25 2006 at 07:00 PM

HEY!! I couldnt believe i got rejected from SU...but I got into Franklin Pierce today so at least I will have options. Looks like you and I are in similiar situations! Good luck!!!

Damn...
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

...You are on a roll! Here's to Newton and his laws of motion! May the momentum continue! Good luck on the rest of your aps!

Thursday, November 10 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations on CSU. I am still waiting and my numbers are very comparable to yours. Did you apply for early decision, PT, FT?

Congratulations
Monday, November 21 2005 at 07:00 PM

on your acceptance to Cleveland State.

CSU
Friday, February 03 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats, thats very exciting, and good luck on the rest of your apps.

Congrats on Cleveland!
Friday, April 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on the acceptance! I am hoping it bodes well for me, and maybe we will be future classmates!

Seat Deposit @ CSU?
Thursday, November 10 2005 at 07:00 PM

I'm still waiting on a decision from Cleveland Marshall, It's taking long and wearing on me. When is the deadline for your seat deposit; that may shed some light and ease my pain--depending on when it is.

lost. help?
Tuesday, February 28 2006 at 07:00 PM

ok, so I got into NYLS and I heard bad things, too. is it really so bad? and, in your opinion, do you think Pace is any better? if i don't try to make a decision soon i'm gonna go absolutely nuts. i'm really waiting on brooklyn, who are taking the longest freakin' time to decide about me which makes me nervous.

Toledo
Sunday, August 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

Toledo is going into T2. I suggest that or FP.

C-M
Thursday, February 09 2006 at 07:00 PM

Cleveland State's whole campsu is really nice. I used to lock all the buildings at night (security job) including the Law building. I'm excited to attend. All the faculty and the new Dean are approachable and concerned. Hope to see you there. Buffalo was my first choice, but I couldn't pass up C-M.

ub
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Hey there, I withdrew from UB yesterday, so hopefully it will open up a spot for you. Plus I hear lots of stories from current students about how they got in off the waitlist. Even if not, CSU is a nice admit, congrats! And good luck!

Thanks
Wednesday, December 28 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the well wishing! If I dont hear from Buffalo by mid-May I'm going to withdraw, so that should bump you up the list. Good luck!

Decision?
Wednesday, March 15 2006 at 07:00 PM

You close to making a decision yet? Have you had to put any seat deposits up? Good luck on Buffalo BJ :)

Hello
Wednesday, May 10 2006 at 08:00 PM

Good luck with Buffalo, you will get accepted.

Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

it was only 100 bux

Seat Deposit
Monday, August 29 2005 at 08:00 PM

Jesus, It was $100 bucks. Not bad, relatively speaking.

Buffalo
Wednesday, February 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

Only $100, as a matter of fact there is only 1 seat deposit.

Buffalo
Wednesday, February 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

Good news..i visited buffalo recently and met w/ dean, she just happen to mention that they have not started removing people from waitlist...so honestly blackjesus i think u have a great shot..i would write secondary letters of support to buff..mention specific programs, faculty etc....one letter to adm. com and one to dean wiley-upshaw...seriously u should consider that..if u need any pointers and i can be helpful in any way let me know...i visited the school and absolutely luv it..and it was never on my list for #1 initially...LOL how ironic.best of luck!

ALS
Thursday, April 13 2006 at 08:00 PM

Ya, I dunno what happened. It was just an ordinary rejection letter - I imagine the same as if I hadn't been on the WL. I didn't follow up though, as I've already sent my seat deposit elsewhere. I'm sure you won't have a problem getting off their waitlist (favorably) though - your numbers are in their range. Good luck to you!

How was it?
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Hi. I read on Virtue's page that you had an interview with the dean. how did that go? they offered me one when i called but i live in Oregon. I'm wondering if it's worth it for 20 minutes? Good luck to you btw, Buffalo is a cool school it would be neat if we could both go and enjoy it!

Thursday, February 23 2006 at 07:00 PM

Albany waitlisted me initially (small thick envelope) with waitlist forms, and then later rejected me in letter form (again, a small envelope). Hope that helps. Good luck!

Thursday, January 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

That was a rough day for you. Good luck getting off your waitlists.
