Thanks for the congrats and encouragement. Score on University of Minnesota! Where's your top choice? What do you think you'll prioritize in your decision.
Thanks DougLLewellyn, It appears you're doing well also. I'm sure there are more on the way. So sit back and get ready.
Yea, I believe I'm being targeted by trolls wanting to assign negative attributes to Bush supporters. It's a shame, because this site is such a great tool if people don't abuse it. What's even more of a shame is that morons like that might actually be in law school with us one day :/ Anyway, thanks for the congrats! I'm wondering if I should have tried a few more reach schools, but I wasn't very optimistic at the time with my abysmal LSAT score. And congrats on your own accomplishments!!! I have no doubts that you'll have many more acceptances.
thanks, how sweet u r. I am kicking myself for the late date of my apps. I just hope u r right. WTG on some great schools.
i just wanted to stop by and say congrats on some really good schools. good luck on the rest of the apps.
best name i've seen yet. and congrats too
so much!! I really appreciate the kind words, this sight really eptomizes the good qualities in future law students!! ;0) I am still trusting in God and the bigger picture at this point. It is all really out of my control and so I find peace in that, until the mailman comes, haha You have some great acceptances on your list thus far and I can see many more to come. Congrats and Good Luck on the rest. I too, am rooting for YOU!!
thanks for the holler. yeah, i'm not stressing about harvard and stanford, if anything it would be icing on the cake. as for nyu and columbia, i've had a few friends who've had miserable experiences at columbia, say that there's a prevailing aura of hostility there that i'm not so much into. and i've gotten really good endorsements of nyu, so i'm leaning downtown. good luck with the rest, and maybe i'll see you in MPLS. (i'm from there, it's a nice place to live, and the school's goooooood).
on ford-ham. a car and meat...what more could a student want? :) hehe congrats man. good luck with the rest of the apps.
Yes, I am going to try with ND. I would love to go there!! Are you going to try as well? Congrats on Fordham!!
ha! it ain't happenin. that's one of my transfer options. just call me rudy.
interested in hearing what you had to say. Good Luck to both of us.
Send me an e-mail and I will tell you my impressions of MN
I got one sheet in a letter sized white envelope my waitlist notice.
Yeah, I will trim the list after the LSAT. Thanks for the advice and congratulations on your acceptances
Thanks. I really want to go back to davis, miss the cow town. Goodluck with yours too. where is your first choice?
ya, Davis is my top choice, I even put that in my personal statement, not sure if it's a right move. oh well. Good luck with columbia and vandy, I wish i have the number to apply to those schools.
Thanks, i'll be rooting for you for columbia and vandy! =)
from the idiot who got rejected at mich. st., but in a bloomington. if you get into columbia, you have to go. i will be trying to transfer there after year 1, when my terrible undergrad grades are history, and if you go to bloomington i will buy you a beer. good luck.
on st lou. you got some choices ahead of you. if you end up in the mid-west i'd like to set up a meeting for all the lsn urm mid-west acceptees. i think it would be a great networking opp. i plan to start a large minority firm someday. you are always welcome to join up. take care man and good luck on wisc and nd.
Yes, I got your e-mails. Did you not get my replies? I was wondering why you never responded back!!! That is so wierd, let me try e-mailing you again!!
Sorry for the misunderstanding...I started volunteering after I got injured. I fixed my info so it is more clear now. Good luck on the rest of your cycle you have gotten into some really great schools already!
on wisconsin. your a cheeze head! you gotta say hello to brett 'farvera' for me. :-) check out my additional info. i'm thinkin chicago/ny/philly/dc sometime in august. if this works out bring some business cards. did you check out that firm in minn? kind of cool, right?
on Wisonsin!! That school rocks!! I e-mailed you back as well!!
With that LSAT score, I\\\'m pretty shocked at the Notre Dame waitlist. What were your grades like? I\\\'m fairly certain you\\\'ll get off of the ND waitlist if you had a 3.0 or above. Deffinitly have some good options. Planning to visit Washington & Lee?
i did say that. i really thought i had no shot at notre dame. i am a little bit amazed that i get the waitlist. you just know i'll be sending off a ton of stuff. :-) dude, you are doing it up big-time. i can only guess about the hidden apps.
Thank you!! cause that is what I needed and you totally made my day with that. I belive I have lurked on your page via partyguy and angelasassy :0) I am pulling for you too, I can pretty much guess 5 of your 7 hidden apps ( they must be the most important which I can relate to) I hope we end up at one of them together; not just for the schools, but you seem to be a great guy!! I will be watching you too now...I can't wait to hear which apps are hidden. Please email me when you get in to Stanford! :0) much cali love...
thanks, how was your trip to Indiana?? Was it nice??
about the NW scholarship, it's a big deal of stress off my back. so yeah, it just vaulted to number one on my list. how about you? what are you favoring right now? i'm sure you still have some heavies to wait on. good luck with them, and think hard about MN, i love that place!
Congrats to you too. It looks like you have quite a decision to make yourself. Scholarship offers do come into play to make things interesting, but if I fall in love with any one institution I'll go regardless of initial scholarship offers. There's always negotiation. What's your first choice?
Looks like you've got a clean sweap going! Congratulations. Deffinitly drop me a line... I don't know how good my advice is... but I'll tell you whatever I know. Good luck.
I'd love to hear what you thought of IU!
for the kind words! I don't visit San Pedro much, but a close friend of mine shares keyboard players with mister Watt. The music world is really small. Best of luck to you my friend!
are you doing a me??? haha, I haven't gotten your e-mail as yet!!! ;0)
i have tried not to let it get to me. they were the first rejection of my life. i am going crazy waiting on my top choices. i have tried to go about my day as if i'm going to toledo, but that does not help. having all these pendings is getting to me. once i hear from a few schools i probably relax. it would just be so nice to be in your position. of these accepts, which is your top choice? indiana? i know that $$$$ is something else. my aunt just told me that i have a family conection to one of the deans of a top uc law school. now she tells me. :-)
i forgot to ask. some of those 7 hidden are top 14, right? with the results you have hear i'm really curious as to your chances at the upper echelon. take care and good luck on the hidden 7.
Soooooooo true. I am really scared for the UC system as it seems to be in major decline!! As an alum I do think that an education other then UC is important--I know people who have gone to Cal for ug and grad!! I am so very interested in where you end up!
...for the kind words, and allow me to be one of many to congratulate you on some awesome acceptances! We both have some pretty tough choices to make, but I'm pretty thankful that I have great options. San Diego is pretty high on my list, so perhaps I'll see you there in the fall...I received scholarship info a week after the acceptance arrived, I wasn't really expecting it. I'm sure you'll hear of an offer soon. Are you going to follow through with the ND waitlist? I haven't decided yet... Good luck with the rest of your apps!
and congrats on your nice $$ from USD. IUB sounds gorgeous, I bet that trip made them go up for you. I bet you would be top 10% at the school as well!!
it's deleted. you know my great uncle graduated from penn and he became a judge. his daughter wanted to do everything on her own and decided to go to widener. she was accepted into temple and other schools but.... i know she now regrets many decisions. she turned down firm jobs, she turned down a party nomination for a judgeship. look, the purpose of aa is so that the next generation won't have to struggle as hard to make it. i believe that it is disrespectful to our ancestors and all they did to make our paths. hell, they didn't just make them, they paved em. stay on the yellow brick road, man. stay on the yellow brick road. good luck this cycle. i hope you get the ONE you want. i truly hope it's the one that was layed and paved before you.
where do you want to practice? the only thing that worries me is that you have not felt compelled to withraw from usd yet. if you crave the sun, you crave the sun. know what i mean? now w&l might be your best balance of sun and rank from this list. then again 81k is 81k. i say visit the three, then throw caution to the wind and choose the one that feels right. you probably can't go wrong.
Thanks for the message. I'm not dying to leave the NW, infact I like it a lot up here. I love the mountains and the outdoors so I'm strongly considering CU. Congrats on getting into some great schools.
I did get the review and I appreciate it sooo much! I don't think I will accept IU's offer, but we'll see. I'm all about making up my mind at the last minute.
I called I spoke to anyone. Everyone was nice to me apart from FSU, she was like, didn't you just call the other day. I have not been impressed with their admissions process. Which school has the high gpa requirement? I guess I should find that out from UIUC.
with UIUC!! I hope you get in with big $$$, I am sure you will. And I hope Minn lowers that req, that is too stressful to try and keep!!
I'm originally from New York but went down to NC after UG. I fell in love with Chapel Hill, the university and the people. Can't imagine going anywhere else :) You've got some great choices ahead of you--i have a colleague that graduated from UMinn Law and only has great things to say about them, particularly if you're going the public interest route. Either way they have great clinical experience. Myron Orfield who runs the Institute for Race and Poverty there is a pretty awesome professor as well (i've had the pleasure of meeting him). If you can withstand the cold, you should choose there--from the looks of your choices (predominantly in the MidWest and North East?), looks like you can :)
a great week!! I am really happy about that 25k at Santa Clara...their IP program is really good. So we're still waiting on those Cali schoools huh? Here's to good next week being just as good as this one!
Thank you for the congrats!!! Bummer with the Fordham$$ too..but I am sure you are not tripping!! :)
to put it simply:fee waiver. I'll be withdrawing on monday bc they haven't offered me any $$$ and that would be a necc. thing for me to even consider them and it still would have to be a darn good offer. ( I'm talking 10k extra to pay my rent and gas money to d.c ) I am surprised that yopu haven't gotten offered any $$$ by wisc. like really really surprised!!
Doug, will you hit me up with your impressions of IU-B. I am really considering going there.
people who know me have been told my numbers. I put fake numbers on my profile because one guy on LSD has been stalking me and harrassing me constantly. Thank God he will be going to Arkansas or Alabama and will be far away from me.
I know, so late in the cycle--why must we wait so?!?!? I am going mad. UCLA and USC have got me going mad!!! Doesn't help that a friend just got in to UCLA this morning! ahh well whatcha gonna do?
Hey-thanks for the message. I am leaning toward going to UW. I just got waitlisted for UVA today though. I'm shocked--I feel like this is all a dream. Good luck to you--you've done well. Have you committed to a school yet?
that is so weird that you are on the WL. Maybe they think you are going to T14 and can't be bothered with them!! I hope you get in though!! Good Luck!! (These results are so arbitrary)
Please send me your review of IU. I'm hoping to get an acceptance from them, but since I live in Utah I won't be able to visit their campus. Thanks!
at this point, it's down to toledo and lewis and clark. i was definitely going to l&c until i got a full ride to toledo! it's so cheap there that i can live like a king. + i have heard so many good things about the toledo faculty. it sounds like a solid education. with their move into the 2nd tier, how can i (broke brother that i am) pass on that? i'm still going to hold out for notre dame, uiuc, loyola, kent, and depaul-but i had better get a nice package from kent and depaul to rationalize turning that offer down. what do you think? tough huh? i think i would like to work in chicago and toledo would allow me to get an llm at john marshall/depaul in a few years after i've saved some money. plus i can still apply at the minority job fairs. also, toledo put me in some transition program where i will only take 3 classes the first semester and make up the two missing classes over the summer. this will allow me to really get off to a good start without worrying about money for the first time in my academic life.
Can't we get any love from these Cali schools? I mean c'mon! We're in-state! If only the UC system had UT's approach to admissions!!! How was your open house?
congrats on the acceptances. can you also send me the review for IUB? thanks a lot.
I love your LSN nickname. You've had an awesome cycle, good luck on your decision.
Leaning towards any particular school yet?
I haven't withdrawn from Indiana yet. I am still slighty considering it...just because it's ranked so much higher than Marquette which is my other favorite that I have already been accepted to. I have until April 15th to decide. At this point I'd probably say no, I won't go to IU but I am not 100% positive yet. I really am crossing my fingers for Georgetown. Columbia would rock too. I am SO running out of patience. But yeah, I'm glad that I have a lot of wonderful opportunities ahead of me. I hope I just choose the right one!
For driving up my total views, I am big on that type of stuff. lol jk GULC is a no go i am sure of it b/c I can't log in to the admitted studetns website...ah well, i have another option is dc as of today...HU came thru with the full ride!!! I am really considering this. I would like to know what you think b/c you have a really good approach to this law school app thing we've been doing!
Heya! I'm deciding between some of the same schools. it'll prolly be W&L if my man can stand the lil mountain town, if not then fordham. or maybe wisconsin... ahhhh anyway, were you at 3/25 in lexington? I thought it was great fun. Any thoughts?
Heya. Maybe our paths did cross on 3/25, I don't remember. Did you go to the party on Saturday night? I ditched a bit early so failed to fully socialize, but I was on the porch for a while early on. As for Fordham, I applied for the day program but was waitlisted, and then offered a spot in the PT night program. If I chose to go there, I won't be working, and I'd go full time as of 2nd year. I waffle daily between W&L and Fordham, and still am considering Madison also. PLUS I have so many waitlist spots that maybe something else will come into play also. I'm taking my family to visit W&L in early May, so I'm hoping that the town will fully charm my better half and he'll see reason. But if he feels he would be uncomfortable there I wont force him to live there for 3 years, and will prolly go w/ Fordham. I really think W&L is something special - the group was awesome, the town unbelievably charming. I don't know much about IU, so sorry I can't offer much advice on comparing the two schools. BTW, have you approached W&L about offering more money? They may be able to pull some more together for you, and they're SO nice about everything. Just ask nicely, they might be able to help.
see you at IU-B? I'll let you buy me a beer with all that scholarship dough. I never thanked you for sending me that review of IU, sorry about that, but consider this post a thank you. Good luck with your decision.
Hey "Doug" technology snafu...I emailed you...the "A" is coming out?!?!? I can't wait. I amsad tho that we will not be classmates...I guess this is the result of forming friendships via national "online communities" I'll catch you at the NBLSA conference! And perhaps if you ever come back to cali :-)
Thanks for the comments on my page. I'm really glad that I could be of some help. I hoped that someone was reading those reviews ;-) What schools are you down to now? Leaning towards any schools in particular? Is it down to Wash lee and IU? Are you still considering Minn? I really liked UC Davis when I visited, but I am a bit concerned about being locked into CA. Do you think that would be the case? Is there a reason you didn't apply to Davis for law? Did you enjoy your UG experience there? Thanks for any info you could provide!
Thanks for your thoughts. Deciding is really tough! I know it. Here's hoping that that the lil ol town of Lexington charms the socks off my man. I hope they do right by you in terms of $$. They should have some floating around after this week's withdrawals and acceptances come through. Anyway, best of luck wherever you end up going, I'm sure you'll be a superstar.
what is it to be young man?? Decisions are hard to make ain't they??? lol :-)
No, I'm no longer considering IU. I didn't withdraw but I also didn't confirm before their deadline.
We will have to kick it at IU
i guess you're going to indiana. that's great. it looks like so many of the people i have traded comments with are going to be w/in driving distance of chicago. i say we all meet in chicago some time in august before classes start. we can all exchange contact info.
Brought out the A. I turned down HU but it was sooooo hard, you knowb I love that school. So if USC comes a knockin'? If they come a knockin' for both of us I will go !!! :-) I think it's a solid program with a lot of great connections but do those connections transfer to every arena of law? not so sure...
on finally choosing. Yeah, for Indiana!!!! we def have to keep in touch!!!
Long time no chat, I just quit my job with the Honorable Senator from California and have not been on the computer since. But here I am, mergeing back on to the information super highway. Full ride? Mind blowing, but you deserve it my friend. I will email you, but if you're ever back in the area we must hang out, or "network" lol
Thanks! and best of luck at Indiana!
I had a nightmare that my identity was stolen and that I couldn't secure private loans for law school. According, I applied to a school where I knew I could go tuition free. Of course, soon after I applied, another school offered full-tuition for 3 years. So it goes...
