Additional info & updates

I applied last year, didn't like where I was at, retook the LSAT in October, and didn't improve. So now I am moving on with the scores I have.

I've visited Marquette and DePaul if anyone has questions. I also have toured Wisconsin, and I live in Madison if you have questions about the area.

11/14: Accepted at Marquette. Not surprising, I got in last year too. No word on money yet. Regular size envelope (which is how they do it), with the promise of more info soon.

11/16: Waitlisted at DePaul via a depressing regular envelope. A bit puzzling, as I got in right away last year. I won't attend if I am not offered some money, and that seems unlikely. Too pricey for what it offers.

11/20: In at Pitt! A regular sized envelope, which made me kind of nervous, but it was pretty thick, so I felt pretty confident. Its nice to have choices. Also, they gave a free metal bookmark thing, so whatever, thats cool I guess. Last year Lewis and Clark sent me a wall calendar a week after they rejected me.

12/22: After a month of almost nothing, I got an email from Penn State today that congratulated me on my acceptance to the University Park campus. This is great, I do not want to be at the other campus. Decisions, decisions.

1/20: Rejected from FSU and Loyola. Considering leaving flaming bags of poop at their doorstep, ringing the doorbell, and running away. Realistically I am down to PSU, Pitt, and Oregon, with Marquette as a safe bet. Hoping on some money. I wish I was a URM.

2/9: No big surprises. Rejected from my undergrad's law school: Wisconsin. That sucks, but to be honest I need to get out of Madison. I got into Oregon w a 2k scholarship. Not the best money, but whatever, its something. Maybe I can ask for more. I'll be visiting Oregon and Pitt in the next month or so, and then making a decision. Its down to those two. I don't want to work in Wisconsin, so I'm not considering Marquette. I'm not withdrawing yet though, thats my emergency rip cord if everything else gets fucked up.

Congrats on Pitt! That is one of my schools I have a shot at and actually want to go to, but I made a silly mistake in the app I hope they don't notice!

I applied to the full-time program and I did not apply early decision. I hope this helps. Good luck on your cycle, we do have pretty similar numbers.

Here we go Panthers!

Hey Congrats on your acceptance to Pitt. I have toured the school and live in the area (I know a few people who go there as well), if you have any questions about it get at me. Good luck with the rest of your apps.

Tuesday, December 23 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the info. My app isn't complete for Marquette yet so I won't hear from them for a while but I have my fingers crossed!

Tuesday, October 27 2009 at 08:00 PM

I have almost no shot of getting into UW law. My app was more of a "you miss every shot you don't take" motivational poster type application. So are you thinking Marquette, Pitt? Either one would be great. Side note, we got screwd in bowl seleciton this year. Good luck with the rest of your cycle!

Pittsburgh has a lot of character man. In the early 1900s it was the second richest city in the country, only behind NYC. There is a lot of beautiful architecture left from this era-public buildings, private homes, and structures, such as bridges. The law school is in Oakland, which is basically the college neighborhood of the city--CMU and Carlow are there as well. There are deff apartments close to the law school. Oakland is so full of undergrads that most of the grad students live in Shadyside or Squirrel Hill, they are just a neighborhood over and a lot of young grad students and professional types live in both. Pittsburgh is broken into different neighborhoods and each has its on character/neighborhood pride. Great history of European/Eastern European immigrants in the area. Neighborhoods often reflect this through their ethnic eateries. The weather is insane. It gets cold here, but we don't get a tone of snow. It is dreary here probably more than usual and it rains. Cost of living here is cheap compared to other cities, it has character, and there are other grad students around. I would recommend it to anyone in their 20's. And PittLaw has a strong rep among the legal community in the city.

Pretty much the same comment as lawgirl16. With the exception that I have spent a lot of time in the north. I only know what I have read about Marquette, so I am curious to know what your visit was like and what your impressions were.

Tuesday, October 27 2009 at 08:00 PM

So is Marquette the saftey as long as they provide some cash?

Hate to beg, but I really do want to practice in Wisconsin (why? I love it for some twisted reason). So if you could curb it quick after you make your decision that would be awesome. Interesting tourney season coming up, bit of a bumpy ride at the end of the season. Alot is going to have to come down the pike to grab a 1 seed. Best of luck with your visits!
