Additional info & updates

Going to Temple Law and grateful for the opportunity. I'm extremely pleased with the acceptance there and have been thoroughly impressed with the school and the city.

-=-=-=-=-=-

All scholarship amounts above are the total that would be distributed over the full course of the J.D. education, assuming all criteria are met (some require maintaining a minimum GPA or class rank).

Ohio Northern and Vermont Law School have been remarkably friendly and personal in their communication and their efforts to make me feel welcome.

Minnesota practically begged me, via snail mail and e-mail, to apply. Go figure. I think there must have been a glitch in their CRS profile or in their mass mailing program.

Ohio Northern was one of my first applications and was the first acceptance, via phone call. Called at a later date to offer scholarship.

Western New England offered full-time or part-time, even though I only applied part-time. More scholarhip money for full-time. Called to tell me.

Florida Coastal sent an e-mail to offer admission and scholarhip even though I never applied to the school. They simply reviewed my profile via Candidate Referral Service (CRS). I live nearby. Acceptance was for the semester starting January. The e-mail was only a week or so before orientation.

DePaul was a pleasant surprise. Not really expecting acceptance there. Excellent programs and highly regarded in Chicago, with very strong alumni base there.

Temple was even more of a surprise. I tried not to give too much thought to Temple after I applied, because I really thought it was a reach for me. I like Philadelphia, so the location adds to the appeal of the school for me.

I'm extremely pleased with the results so far. Even if I don't see another acceptance letter, I'll have more choices that I expected.

Trying to decide which schools to visit now. Probably can only visit two or three, due to work schedule, the travel required, and limited vacation time.

- - - - -

Albany offered $15,000 per year scholarship, contingent upon staying in the top 50% of the class. A tempting offer. The location is one I would enjoy. I don't really care so much about being in a metropolis or a huge, elite law firm. Plus, the school has a lot of good qualities.

----------

Indiana Bloomington sent a letter to say my application has been reviewed once and I'm "on hold." It implies chances are slim for anything better than waitlist. And, there won't be a further answer until after April 15.

-- IU update... didn't make the cut.

-------

Withdrew from all remaining contenders. Very happy with choice of Temple Law.

-------

Call from Denver Sturm to offer me a spot in the evening program shortly after I e-mailed to withdraw. Took a weekend to consider, but ultimately stuck with Temple.

Congrats on your acceptance to those schools! Have you had a chance to look at John Marshall or Suffolk,NELS? I am in Nebraska so it is nearly impossible to travel right now with school and all. Any insight would be appreciated. THanks!

Suffolk visit very impressive
Saturday, January 27 2007 at 07:00 PM

I did visit Suffolk (Boston) in October, because I was in the city for an unrelated conference. The school is VERY impressive in person. The location is absolutely incredible. Right in the heart of the most historic part of Boston, a short walk from the state capitol, courthouse, numerous major law firms, etc. While I was there, the city had banners up all over the area commemorating the 100th anniversary of the founding of Suffolk University. The tour of the building was impressive too. The library is much larger and nicer than those at most law schools. Huge! Three floors. Plenty of seats and great spots to study in private or with groups. The mock courtrooms and the large classrooms (a few large ones and several smaller) were very modern and sleek, for a law school. The technology in the classrooms was better than what I've seen in photos and descriptions of other law schools. The entire facility was only built about ten years ago, but fits in perfectly with the historic architecture around it. I suppose it'd be called neo-classical or something like that. And, right across the street is an historic church and cemetery where Paul Revere is buried. The street passing in front of the school is a much used tourist path called the Freedom Trail. The other university buildings are even closer to the supreme court building, but the law school is close enough that a 3L told me she has walked over there to use their library, on the rare occassion that a volume is not available in the Suffolk stacks. Another great thing about the location is the proximity to Boston Commons, one of the truly great urban parks. You can see it from the school's front steps.

DePaul and Temple
Thursday, November 16 2006 at 07:00 PM

DePaul I visited over winter break from school. Nice place, the people were helpful but I've been more impressed. Seemed a lot like it was a get what you want by your own means. The mock courtroom is very nice, small but good acoustics and probably better taken care of than most real courtrooms. Temple I can't be too much help on, but I know that they tend to be very flexible with their students. My dad got his MBA there and they worked really hard to accomodate him and make it work once he was accepted.

Ohio Northern University (Petit School o
Saturday, January 27 2007 at 07:00 PM

To answer your question on my thoughts about Ohio Northern University.... I have not visited ONU, but I really believe they are great at devoting a lot of time and attention to each individual. For example, they called me on the phone to tell me of my acceptance -- and they were the first school to accept me also. Then they later called to tell me that I had been awarded the scholarship money. Other schools use mail or e-mail for these things. Then, I got a call to ask if I wanted to have dinner with the admissions director, which was a shock, since I live in Florida. She was going to be passing through my town. How many schools are that thoughtful? Granted it's just the admissions staff, but I think it speaks well of the size of the school and the advantages of a small law school. And, my research and reading makes me think the school would be great for someone who doesn't mind leaving Ada, Ohio for a summer internship, at least in the second summer. Or, you could commute - about a one hour drive - to a sort of nearby city. Or, if you think you don't need to do an internship, then ONU would be great. That was my only concern. I think I want the experience of a good internship or two to help me land a good job. ONU has a nice campus and a great library. The town of Ada seems remarkably quaint. Rentals are so cheap there that you could have a house with a big yard for less than a small apartment in most cities. My conversations with admissions staff at LSAC forums were very positive also. It's too bad the law school's website is so horribly outdated. At least the university website is good. Look there for information about the campus and the area. And, look to the LSAC Guide and the LSAC online directory for information about the law school.

temple?

Hey - Congrats on Temple - That is a great school - Did you apply directly to their part time program or check that you would be considered for both?

Only applied to Part-Time at Temple
Saturday, January 27 2007 at 07:00 PM

To answer wistful's question... I only checked "Evening" (which means part-time) on the Temple application. I am certain I would not have had a shot at full-time if I had checked it.

Hope you get good news from Buffalo. It's innovative programs, great faculty, and unique January Bridge Program make it a great place to receive your legal education.

Headed to Temple Law in 2007
Saturday, January 27 2007 at 07:00 PM

The decision is final. It's Temple Law in 2007 for me. I've notified the last few contenders that I'm withdrawing my other applications. Of course, I waited for the rejections from a few very good schools. But, to be honest, I don't know that any of them could have pulled me away from Temple anyway. I was surprised and grateful for the acceptance from Temple as soon as I got it -- especially considering how quickly it arrived -- and I'm still excited about attending. The location and the curriculum are perfect for me. And, the job placement stats are very impressive. I love the fact that it's in a big enough city that I don't have to move for summer internships and for my first job after graduation. Plus, I already have a great apartment lined up in a beautiful neighborhood, just one block from a SEPTA station. If you happen to be a Temple Law student or alumnus, I'd appreciate any advice you can offer.
