Kent and NIU
Wednesday, February 07 2007 at 07:00 PM

So...out of curiousity, how come you waited so late in the cycle to apply? I had my reasons, of course, I've been in three cycles now. I'm sure you will get into NIU, that's not a hard school to get into. Kent, which I currently attend, is tough to get into and is very highly competitive in both the full-time and part-time divisions. But you have a good chance to get into Kent because of your Masters' Degrees. Good luck to you.

Same to you

Thanks for the encouragement. Sorry about your family's situation. Did you say anything about that in your personal statement? I'm sure that would make a difference. NIU doesn't care if you applied late anyway. So I'm sure you will get in there without a problem. I just had an interview at Robert Morris to teach Math yesterday, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for that. If I got that position, perhaps my plans would change. But at least NIU also has a part-time day program, and Robert Morris has a campus in Aurora, anyway. I would probably move out west towards Aurora or Naperville if I got the job there and take the Metra into Chicago if I was required to teach at the Chicago campus. The position states you have to teach at all 5 campuses, but not all during the same quarter. So we'll see if I get the job or not. If I did, I'd go to NIU part time during the day. Good luck to you. So did you move to Chicago already? Or are you still in DC?

I was able to get into Kent with a 151 LSAT, so you should be fine if you got that as well. You have two master's degrees, and I only had one, so you are definitely in contention for their part-time evening program. If I can manage to get into DeKalb, I will go there. The problem is I don't think anyone will give me another chance. UNLV already insisted I forward them a transcript and I don't think they'll give me a chance when my current law transcript shows a 1.86 for a GPA. Oh well.

Good luck

Well, I hope you get better news than I do. I wish I knew if there were any schools that were "friendly enough" to give someone a second chance. I just don't get it. Circumstances can change. Why should anyone give a gosh darn about what I got last semester when I'm re-applying to start first year over? I mean, I didn't get any F's, but that's not the point. If I wanted to wait and transfer, I would. But the longer you wait, the worse off you really are. The idea is to get out of the crappy environment I'm in now and go to school in a more friendly, non-competitive environment, where I wouldn't have to worry about how to pay my darn bills. Oh well. I guess no one really cares about that. I have no idea what in the world I'm going to do if I don't get into UNLV or NIU. Hopefully NIU will not ask for a transcript, but if they do, then I guess I'll never get in there, either. It's just so unfair. No one should really care if you're not trying to transfer any credits.

That's a great attitude. And that's why I decided to apply to Cooley. Because they pretty much will take anyone, and I refuse to not continue my law education somewhere. Therefore, it's just a matter of playing the waiting game some more.
