Additional info & updates

Foreword: I know my numbers are bad, so don't remind me about them.

This is my second attempt at this. My first attempt was haphazard at best. I had worse numbers, GPA and LSAT-wise (yes, it is possible) and I was just trying to meet the deadlines:a recipe for disaster.

This year, I am in somewhat of a better situation. After graduation, I sat down and studied the LSAT, and made a major improvement. I also improved on my GPA, a little.

So I decided to have a second go at it. I may also apply to grad school. So far, things have gone as planned, I hope that they continue that way.

Everything as of this point is help me to get into the military as an attorney.

Comments are welcome, especially constructive cricticism. However, I won't tolerate rudeness. Good luck!

Hi You have a really good chance of getting into UDC. I got accepted there last year with a lower LSAT (higher GPA). Cooley as well of course. We are applying to some of the same schools. You may want to try Widner (I was accepted into the conditional program there). Finally, you may also want to apply to NESL (new England School of Law) I was waitlisted there (and sadly rejected) but you have a better LSAT than I had so you may have better luck. GOOD LUCK!

Thanks. All that I am hoping is that I get in somewhere. I'll worry about everything else later.

Widener would be a good option with yout numbers too. I think you've got a shot at least some of those schools (I don't know much about most of them). Good luck!

JAG question...
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thikighoros, If you have specific questions you can email me. I will tell you that I have been both an officer and enlisted in the Army. My enlisted time was in supply and my officer time has been in both supply and Armor. I can give you the generalities of service, but no JAG specific stuff. Let me know it that helps.

Good Luck

Hey, Good Luck, I too am considering JAG. I am considering Air Force though.

Good Luck

I appreciate your opinions on LSD, and I'm glad you have enjoyed sucess in the US. Good luck with applications and I hope you have sucess in becoming a military attorney. Just promise me you'll consider critical theory's critique of capitalism.

you should apply to UDM. I have heard that the detroit legal market is good. at the ny law forum the UDM rep was black. he said he got a job starting out at 100k. not bad for a 4th tier.

UN internship

hi - i saw on an lsd post that you interned at the UN and it really turned you off. i am interested in working there post-ls, and would love to hear what your experience was like. if you have the time, i would totally appreciate it! thanks, and best of luck with your apps!!

un msg

thanks for the message about the UN - it was helpful information to me and interesting to hear...and interestingly enough, it didn't dissuade me from getting involved with the org. the corruption part is worrisome, but more for its effects on the capability of the organization to fulfill its mission. i feel that if honest people stay away it will never improve, so maybe it needs more people like you and me! as far as the anti-american feel, well, i have lived abroad in a few different countries, and that is to be expected anytime you step outside our borders. truth is that while i am a fierce patriot, i can usually understand the reasons behind the sentiment (if there are reasons, and not just blind hatred). anyway, thanks again for the info, it certainly gave me something to think about and to consider down the road! good luck with your apps~

Hey, congrats on getting into Cooley. How did they notify you? It looks like it was only a day after you applied! I applied to Cooley last month and still haven't heard anything from them.

Wednesday, January 04 2006 at 07:00 PM

One of my best friends is in her second year at Cooley and has been extremely successful within the student body, etc. You seem extremely ambitious, and I'm sure you will do well there also! Congrats!

deter you. There's a spot for you. Are you stopping at Thomas Cooley? Not that I think it's a bad school but just wanted to know if that's where you want to go. If not, then I want to say trust the context of your application and apply, apply, apply. Either way, You'll be fine.
