Additional info & updates

1/31/11 - Sent in applications. Now starts the waiting game. I'm hoping to get into either FIU or FAMU although FIU has gotten really competitive because of COA.
Food for thought...paying more than $15,000 for a legal education in a market over saturated with lawyers and decrease in salary, it's not worth getting in debt $120,000 unless its an Ivy League school or it is your only option. BEST OF LUCK!
2/7/11 - Barry status checker says "Further consideration at later date."
2/12/11 - Received letter from FIU stating I'm denied. FIU was a reach for me and although it was a good choice because of location and price, I must move forward and think positive for the rest of my cycle.
2/22/11 - Waitlisted at Florida Coastal. Truthfully, FC will likely not be an option even if accepted because from what I've read and among other reasons, its a for profit school. Any opinions on FC?
2/28/11 - Rejected at Stetson via email. It was a reach but at least I know I tried.
3/2/11 - Accepted at Appalachian. I now know I'll be going to law school.
3/8/11 - Rejected at Charlotte via email. I only applied because I received a fee waiver. Not disappointed because A) its a lot of money and B) only partially accredited.
3/8/11 - Rejected at MSU via Status Checker. Not surprised by this but I love Sparty so I gave it a chance.
3/11/11 - Nova status went from "In Review" to "Committee Review".
3/18/11 - Accepted into Nova's AAMPLE program.
3/23/11 - Accepted into St. Thomas Summer Conditional Program. They only accept the TOP 20% within the program, thats 80% attrition. Example: 10 kids in the program, ONLY 2 would make it. Not going to take the offer.
3/28/11 - After being denied by Charlotte two weeks prior, today they sent me an invitation to their AAMPLE program. Thanks but not thanks.
4/1/11 - Sent in Nova seat deposit for AAMPLE. If FAMU denies me then Nova it will be as it would be my only option but if they accept me then I gave Nova $300. Ah, the law school game.
4/15/11 - Received an email from FAMU stating I have been placed on "HOLD". They will "re-review my application in the coming weeks" to determine if I'm accepted, denied or waitlisted.
4/25/11 - Denied at FAMU. Nova it will be as of now.
7/1/11 - Denied at Nova via AAMPLE. Lesson learned: Don't ever attend aample.
7/1/11 - Attending Ave Maria in Naples.

FIU

No understanding why rejected at FIU. The pattern I discerned from this site, is FIU prefers FL residents and out of state, white males with comparable scores will not be admitted or waitlisted. I am from the Midwest and a fairly rigorous private college. I now believe my applications to southeastern schools to be a waste of time as comparables, or below from the SE are admitted and I have not been so. If you are a FL resident, I believe you have a good shot at FIU.

Good luck

Good Luck to you also

Ideally I would stay in the Tampa Bay area and attend Stetson. However, that's more than a long shot. I think Barry or Florida A&M would be nice. Florida International looks very appealing as well. BEST OF LUCK TO YOU AS WELL.

Thank you- best of luck to you as well!

Hola!

Hello there, I want to wish you the best and a lot of acceptances. We have very similar scores. We are applying to the same schools as well. I hope we get in and do not have to take the LSAT again lol. Keep me updated with your progress.

No change yet

Barry status is still listed as Further Consideration. Good luck, we have similar numbers. Will you apply anywhere else?

Tuesday, October 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Do not feel bad about FIU rejection. I have not received anything yet, but according that we have similar numbers I would expect a rejection. I have checked my account and it does not show even on review. Good luck on your cycle

Congrats, what school will you attend?

NOVA
