Extra Curricular Information

What don't I do? Seriously.

I don't think my PS was all that great...but who knows.

I had wonderful LORs though. One from the Associate Dean of my school, one from the chair of the Acct/Fin Department, and one from the director of the Masters of Accountancy program all of whom know me very well.

Additional info & updates

I'm about 99% sure that I'm going to Marquette.

Yes I got accepted to, and offered comparable scholarships at, quite a few higher ranked schools...there's just something about Marquette that appeals to me. I'm not really sure why.

That was me! It was a joke! HAHAHA. Just kidding, but you better ask you freinds if they're screwing you. Sounds kind of fishy.

Re: UC
Wednesday, September 07 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the comments on my page. I haven't visited Boulder yet, but have heard nothing but great things about it. Once I hear from all the schools I applied to, then I think I will narrow it down to a few an go visit those. As of now, Colorado would probably be on that list. Is that your 1st choice?

Hey
Thursday, November 24 2005 at 07:00 PM

Marquette has a good emplyment rate and is pretty well respected especially in the midwest. with numbers like that you have a good chance of getting some $ there as well. Good luck

Penn
Friday, January 20 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanx for the comment but like I wrote in my Additional Info it seems like if you want to get accepted to Penn you have to write the "Why Penn?" essay. Its really not a big deal it was always my backup school. Thanx anyway.

Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

honestly? my little cousin is going there in the fall on a full ride. she needs her space. plus, the look on her face when i told her i was applying and we could live together was horrific. damn, i thought she loved me. also, i want to do ip. i just think chicago is the better career move. i have left some room for case western and a few others but they are extreme long shots. what don't you do? ha. seriously, good luck with the apps and in the future try to stay out of your client's locker-room.

montana
Thursday, January 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

thanks for the info on montana. do you know if it's common for grads from um law to sit for the bar in washington too? also, last year i noticed they only took 80 something students. do you know why the class size is so small? you have good stats and should do well with your schools.

Sure
Monday, January 30 2006 at 07:00 PM

I would be glad to tell you about my visit to IU. Please send an e-mail and I'll respond.

lol
Wednesday, March 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

funny story. now if how i do in bowling directly relates to my chance of getting into grad school, i have no worries...if only it were that easy. good luck with everything

IU law
Monday, January 30 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations on IU! I sent a review of my visit to your e-mail.

DU vs. CU
Monday, January 02 2006 at 07:00 PM

I would have preferred CU to DU if I hadn't gone to CU for undergrad (plus, my grades suck by CU standards). Also, I live and work in Denver now...and I would have to give up my house and job to make the move to Boulder. There isn't enough difference in the schools (to me) to go through the effort of the move. However, if I were trying to get to Colorado from out of state, I would choose Boulder in a heartbeat. I also think a degree from CU carries more weight outside of Colorado.

sports law
Saturday, January 28 2006 at 07:00 PM

I understand that FCSL is 4th tier but wouldn't they qualify as a candidate for "sports law"? kind of like Stetson for Trial Advocacy. I wonder what schools would be good for sports agent wannabes?

UNLV
Wednesday, March 09 2005 at 07:00 PM

They offered me the same $ package. From what I understand, it isn't to hard to apply for instate tuition for 2-3L, and at the moment, thats 8900/yr.

Congratulations
Monday, January 30 2006 at 07:00 PM

That is a great offer from Indiana. I am curious to see if you will accept the offer. Did you ever get the review I sent via e-mail?

any idea???
Saturday, January 28 2006 at 07:00 PM

What is going on with Missoula? They have rejected some good numbers and deferred contretemps who had rejection numbers. What is the buzz up there?

Why I picked Indiana
Tuesday, September 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

I chose IU because their campus is awesome; it is close to home, but not too close; they have a couple of unique clinics that I'm interested in; and I don't know where I want to end up working, but I'm sure it will be either Louisville, Indianapolis, or Chicago (and Indiana places well in all three). Not to mention I got 8.5K a year there.... good luck picking a school...

Why no reaches?
Wednesday, March 09 2005 at 07:00 PM

Cuz I'm paying for it all myself. W/O a scholarship, it's not worth it to me. Just visited IU today. It was pretty impressive. Congrats on all the $

Pitt
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

I got waitlisted too which I find is freakin hilarious. We were both auto-admits. Whatever, we'll both be going to much better schools. Congrats on all your acceptances and your big time scholarships!

Are you an URM?
Saturday, December 31 2005 at 07:00 PM

How could you get such an amazing scholarship from CU with those numbers?

Haha
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thanks HTH. I didn't reply because I thought the question sounded sort of snotty. "Those numbers"

Hmm
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

It cut off the rest of my response. Anyways, I think my numbers are pretty decent. And yes, being from Montana totally helps. As does the fact that I had an uncle go to law school there that currently owns a firm in Boulder.

Hi
Monday, January 30 2006 at 07:00 PM

I am starting to get waitlisted at some of my top choice schools, so I will likely choose from my current set of schools. Indiana is still very high on my list. They wanted a decision by April 1, but I got an extension to the 15th. Are you still considering IU? I am struggling to make a final decision. I paid a first deposit at W&L, but the full-tuition scholarship at Indiana seems too good to refuse. I change my mind several times a day. Minnesota is high on my list, but my scholarship offer has a high gpa requirement and I'll have to decline if they decide not to lower it. Congratulations on your scholarship offers. You are having a great cycle and it looks like you have a shot at GULC and maybe Columbia.

no kidding
Saturday, January 28 2006 at 07:00 PM

My life is on hold waiting for this Missoula rejection. But... they did tell people that they would hear by the 15th of April. (Coastal's deposit is due that day along with my taxes)

Sorry about earlier
Saturday, December 31 2005 at 07:00 PM

Sorry about sounding snotty. I didn't mean that you had bad numbers (mine are almost the same). I am not terribly surprised that you got into Colorado, I was just wondering how you got such an awesome scholarship. Well, congrats about all your acceptances and hopefully you'll withdraw from Colorado and they will put me in your spot.

I heard
Saturday, January 28 2006 at 07:00 PM

I got my rejection on the 14th. I am relieved that I didn't have to choose between the two schools but I still hate any type of rejection.

IU
Monday, January 30 2006 at 07:00 PM

Are you still considering?

forget marquette
Sunday, February 19 2006 at 07:00 PM

go to IU. milwaukee aint that great

hmm...
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

"there's just something about Marquette that appeals to me. I'm not really sure why." could it be the bar exam waiver? ;-)

wow!
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

you didn't know? if you graduate from the u of wisc or marquette you don't have to take the wisconsin bar exam!

hmm...
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

i'm just wondering why you chose marquette over indiana. knowing that you don't plan to practice in wisconsin i really think that indiana will be the better move. i think bloomington has a low cost of living so that scholly real goes a long way.

MU
Friday, May 05 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey, I'm new to LSN and I just visited Marquette today. Everyone there was very helpful and informative. Out of my acceptances, I think I am leaning towards MU. What area were you thinking of living in in Milwaukee? IS there a place law students traditionally go?

soxman5 cannot follow directions.
Friday, May 05 2006 at 08:00 PM

White Sox it is! My ultimate fav. team

ha
Friday, May 05 2006 at 08:00 PM

wow didn't realize that LSN writes that "can't follow directions" title as a title if you don't include one. Really annoying....HA

question
Wednesday, March 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

can you fill me in about what marquette and the area is like? im hoping i can visit it if i get the chance. thanks.

Sports Law
Sunday, April 30 2006 at 08:00 PM

I am starting to get pretty anxious. I am planning on doubling up and getting my MBA in Sports Administration as well. What do you want to do with Sports Law? See you at orientation.

I don't know
Sunday, April 30 2006 at 08:00 PM

I am not positive either. I have seriously considered becoming a sports agent. But honestly I am also open to suggestion. Corporate and finance law seems intersting. I also know I don't want anything to do with criminal law. I saw my schedule for the first time today. Pretty exciting.

Glad
Sunday, April 30 2006 at 08:00 PM

to see that I am not the only maniac who checks this stupid site every day. It sounds like we have ridiculously similar outlooks on this whole process. That should make for an interesting fall. To see your schedule just sign into checkmarq and go to view schedule (I believe). It is right there. When you get it shoot me an email or let me know and I'll shoot you mine.

cool
Wednesday, October 26 2005 at 08:00 PM

got your message -- thanks for the input...much appreciated. it's funny, being from milwaukee, I prob discount their rep more than I should...so I appreciate your feedback as an unbiased person!

thanks so much!! welcome to milwaukee... it's a great city.
