I just completed all my applications. What a relief. I was somewhat disappointed with my Lsat score but I have confidence that someone will let me in. I am hoping to be admitted to Northeastern since I love their co-op program but, I'll be happy anywhere.
I think I have alot to offer any school. I just hope they see that and let me in the door.
Good luck to all those who are in my same LSAT range. Just remember it is just a number and has nothing to do with your overall capabilities. Like I alway say " Know your worth and everyone else will too."
Best of luck!!!
-All scholarhips are total $$ throughout attendance-
02-02-07-Found out that Hofstra sent an acceptance email to everyone who applied. So I guess I'm still waiting on their decision.
02-05-07-Rejected from St. Johns. Kind of expected it but it still stings. I hope I get some good news soon.
02-06-07-Accepted to NYLS AAMPLE program. If anyone has any information about this program please share.
02-07-07-In at Hofstra. I'm so happy a tier 2 school took a chance on me and I got a scholarship to boot. Now lets see what other news the mailman brings.
02-16-07- In at FCSL. The tuition is right but I'm not sure if I'm ready for the move yet. I'll have to weigh out all my options in March.
02-23-07-In at NESL and Suffolk. Wow I can't believe these acceptances. I have choices after all.
02-24-07-Rejected from BC. No worries, I still have four acceptances and many more decisions to come.
03-04-07-Awarded a 15K grant for my first year from Suffolk. This decision process is getting harder.
03-05-07-Waitlisted at Pace. I guess my LSAT score wasn't high enough. I love White Plains and would like to live there but we'll see what happens towards the end of the cycle.
03-15-07-Rejected from Fordham. Kinda of disappointed though expected. This almost eliminates my hopes of getting into BU. Too bad!!
03-16-07-Withdrew from Florida Coastal. This was a super saftey school and now that I know I have choices, I want to free up spots for others who really want to attend.
03-26-07-Rejected from Rutgers-Newark. A bit disappointed since they say that they will review you based on accomplishments. I think they are too concerned with their tier status to try and recruit quality candidates. I will take my rejection in stride and be the best law student I can be elsewhere.
03-28-07-No decisions today but I thought I'd write anyway. I am having a really tough time deciding which school to attend. I went to a diversity OH at Suffolk and a ASW at Hofstra and based soley on my experiences there I would choose Suffolk but I am still curious about the financial awards. Nesl is lagging behind but I have an ASW tomorrow there and you never know. This process is so confusing I am so scared that I wont pick the best school for me. Wish me luck!!!
03-31-07-Went to a NESL open house and decided to withdraw. I won't share my entire experience but I will say that a curent student said, "NESL is like high school. They have cliques and you have to find one that you fit into." Need I say more.
04-03-07-OMG Suffolk is officially a tier 3 school according to US NEWS 2008 report. I am super excited. This school is doing big things and I just may want to be apart of it.
04-07-07-Rejected from NUSL. I'm a little hurt by this but I am happy with all my acceptance thus far. I am putting down a deposit at Suffolk today and waiting on the financials from Hofstra before making my final decision. It is looking like I will be headed to Suffolk.
04-09-07-Awarded 8K more from Hofstra. I will withdraw soon. My decision has been made.
05-01-07-Awarded 3K more from Suffolk. I love this school!!
05-11-07-Accepted to Pace. I still want to attend Suffolk but all my family is in NY. Tough decision indeed.
I will be attending Suffolk as a 2010 1L.
O.k. So I gave it alot of thought and I am completly confused. Should I go to Suffolk or Pace? I want to practice entertainment law. What school would be best for me?
Final Decision: I will be attending Pace Law School as a 2010 1L. It just makes more sense for me financially and geographically.
