Work Experience: I worked for three summers at a summer camp.

Additional info & updates

11/06/07 - Placed "on hold" at the University of Miami.

11/20/07 - Accepted at Wayne State University.

I'm sorry to hear about Miami. I don't understand that with a nearly 3.6 gpa. Well, hopefully we'll get in later. Also, good luck to your team this weekend. Mine's coming up there with a chip on their shoulder, so you'll probably need it. Ha.

FCSL Scholarship

Did you enter a scholarship code in your application to FCSL? or were you informed of the scholarship when you rec'd the acceptance letter? I just applied and they told me to enter a scholarship code on the application- wondering if that was requested from you also

University at Buffalo Law School

I am very glad to see University at Buffalo Law School on your list. I am a first year student there and the place is AMAZING ! All my professors have their law degrees from Ivy League schools (2 from Harvard Law, 1 from Cornell Law, and 1 from Yale Law--and he wrote the textbook for my Criminal Law Course. The faculty are amazing, it is a very strong Tier 2 school is tuition that is almost impossible to beat !

Thanks for your note. Being a top rated public law school with terrific faculty and low tuition makes a great combo ! Best wishes with your application !

I did not apply to U of M Law. If I was wrong? Did you work at Tamarack Summer Camp? Are you from Russia?

CONGRATS ON YOUR UB ACCEPTANCE
Friday, January 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptance to University at Buffalo Law School...It is a MUCH HIGHER RATED SCHOOL than Hofstra, Florida Coastal, and Wayne State. I am a first year student at UB and the place is amazing. Even if you are an out of state student the tuition is fantastic. Best wishes !

Car at UB
Friday, January 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for your note. Regarding the absolute need to have a car on campus. The answer is NO. There is an EXTENSIVE and FREE OF CHARGE CAMPUS BUS SYSTEM. And you shouldn't have trouble tagging a ride with a classmate when you need to get away from campus.

hey- I have 4 former classmates from Ugrad at U MD Law now, and they all told me the same thing: persistence is key. If you really want to get in, tell admissions that via letter, email, or phone call. They'll be more inclined to take you if they feel confident you will accept an offer of admission. Good luck!

Congrats!
Sunday, July 22 2007 at 08:00 PM

I'll see you at Maryland this fall!

congrats!
