2-7-05 Waitlisted at NY Law

2-26-05 Contacted Pace, will recieve a decision within a week.

3-1-06 Applied to Touro, hey y not man? Just incase!!!!

3-8-06 Got letter from Pace, stating I'm officially on the wait list. To be honest i would have preferred a rejection. This one really sucks. Cmon CUNY & BK I'm waiting!!!!!
3-9-06 Got a letter from NY LAW stating that I had been given the oppurtunity of a select (25) applicants to take a pre-admissions program, gain a 2.5 and then be accepted to the Par-Time day program... I'll hold out for better I think...
3-23-06- Called to check in at Brooklyn, denied :(
Hey, better than a waitlist, seriously...
Not looking good for the dread, but still holding out slight hope however. If its meant to be then it will. Only way to look at it good or bad. Keeping the faith!!!
3-28-06: Pace recieved my acceptance to be on the waitlist.
04-05-06 Update: Pace does not start rereviewing people placed on the wait list untill May/June. Brilliant!
CUNY : Still with Committee, If I hear that one more time!!!!! deep down this is where I wanna go however.
Indiana: Will hear something in a couple weeks.
Touro: Who knows...
Indiana_ Oh well.
05-11-06: Its getting to crunch time, and strangely enough, i'm wayy less nervous now than i was before. just got back from Jamaica, annd very focoused.
Good news should be just around the corner.
Cmon CUNY PACE and TOURO!

5-15-06: K, from what i hear Pace is currently over enrolled, so unlike other years right now they are not taking anyone off the waitlist for now.
Bad news, but keep the faith!!!

06-02-06: Yes I a nice day, a day I feel has been coming for a while. Keep the faith to everyone that is still waiting to hear this cycle, good things will happen if your faith is strong and your cause pure. And u know what if it doesn't happen this cycle, u study up (Its easier the next time) and rip those Lsats and go get em in Sept 07'. Peace and love, Jah Live.

6-20-06: Well Mr. Pace, good to c that u've finally come around, after all that time huh? interview and all.
Anyway, I'm pretty happy.
However this does make me have to reanalyze my situation and make some plans.
Weschester or LI. That is the Question. Very grateful.
Very Grateful indeed.

6-22-06: OK thats it. I am going to go take the law in my own hands! I'm gonna keeo the PACE in Weschester. Decision Made.
I really appreciate all 3 schools willing to take a chance on me, but I visited Pace, I knew it was the place if i ever got in. So now here it is. 1L, what can I say, to all of us that made it to this point, from studying for LSATS to making a decision is a marathon and not a sprint, it was a long wait. But hey, thats already a 1/4 of our journey to be attorneys!!!

AGAIN THE REASON I AM LEAVING MY #S HERE IS TO LET FUTURE YOUNG AND INSPIRED PRE_LAWYERS KNOW THAT WITH THESE STATS IF U CANNOT HELP THEM, IT CAN B DONE, AND IF YOU HAVE CONFIDENCE, A GOOD PS AND LOR's U HAVE A SHOT.
SO ITS IN YOUR HANDS!

Brooklyn

Did Brooklyn really tell you over the phone that you got rejected or did they send a letter? tx

Brooklyn
Sunday, February 26 2006 at 07:00 PM

Here is the deal with Brooklyn, if you get an email, ur in. If a letter was sent by itself, then ur out. I did call them and they informed me that I was rejected, I really wanted to know before hand though. Good luck.

First off,
Tuesday, March 21 2006 at 07:00 PM

let me say big up to a fellow JA pon di law school journey..i wish you all the best with the rest of your apps and I hope all work out for you..just keep di faith..btw did you apply ne where else..like some lower tier 4 schools..our lsat scores in the same ball park..i'll be watching your progress...

CLEO
Wednesday, February 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey fellow yardie! CLEO's deadline for the pre law institute for this summer unfortunately has already passed on feb 28th. CLEO is the Council on Legal Education Opportunity, they host various programs to prepare students of color for the rigorous challenges of law school. There may be a few other programs you can apply to that may be a bit shorter, just contact them google CLEO, or call them 202-216-4343...they are really helpful and an excellent institute. Even though the deadline has passed I still suggesting contacting them to find out. If you attend some of their programs school such as NY law can reconsider your app, and potentially change ur status from waitlist to acceptance. I wish you the best of luck and mek sure seh yuh send me ah email if i can be more helpful..also i think u should apply to roger williams is close by ur state in rhode island...Tek care and best wishes alway! Virtue

Hello. I send my regrets to you regarding Indiana? I'm praying for an admission there myself. How did they break the news to you?...email, letter, over phone..? Thanks for your assistance and good luck with your application cycle!

NYLS
Monday, March 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey are u considering accepting that nyls pre-admissions offer. It sounds like a good deal and if u don't like the school maybe u could explore the idea of transferring after. Anyting a anyting....and I hope u get into where u wanna be. Good luck with the rest of ur apps. Bless Up!!!
