Extra Curricular Information

Volunteer math tutor.

I don't have too many extracurricular activities due to having two children that occupy most of my time (one is 3 the other is 7months- I am 24 but I feel like I'm 40).

LOR: one written by the senior accountant at my firm.
The other from a professor.

Additional info & updates

I've worked full time throughout undergrad.

I obtained an internship with an accounting firm junior year which turned into a job for senior year.

I will be eligible to sit for the CPA this spring, and I hope to have both my CPA and JD someday.

Any suggestions?

1/19/2007: Received acceptance from Willamette in the mail (regular envelope). Scholarship is $16,000 a year renewable all three years (must maintain at least a 2.9 gpa).

1/25/2007: Received email acceptance from University of Dayton.... more information coming in the mail.

2/05/2007: Accepted at Penn State, large packet of information. This was the first thing I have heard from them since I applied.

2/05/2007: Waitlisted at UC, regular envelope. I can send more information in if I want.

2/08/2007: Received acceptance from Syracuse- big packet in the mail, including t-shirt.

2/10/2007: First rejection- from UW, regular envelope.

2/12/2007: Received scholorship info for University of Dayton (finally). It is $23,000 (*2.5) for the first year and $11,500 each following semester if I stay in the top forty percent on the accelerated track.

2/12/2007: Accepted at University of Denver via email.

2/15/2007: Received acceptance from Gonzaga in the mail- large package and scholarship offer ($15,000 per year provided I keep up the GPA).

2/21/2007: Uh-oh...... status checker at Ohio State just went to 'decision'..... I'm not ready for them to reject me yet....

2/23/2007: Accepted into U of O (large envelope)!!Scholorship of $6,000 per year!

2/26/2007: Rejection letter from Ohio State came today. It's Ok, I'm still a buckeye fan.

3/05/2007: Not even waitlisted at Pepperdine.....that hurts....

3/09/2007: Acceptance from Seattle with a Trustee Scholarship (I think it's only good for the first year)- Large white envelope.

3/10/2007: Accepted at SLU ($10,000 per year)- large envelope.
- Also deferred at L&C (regular envelope). I want this one because I wouldn't really have to move.

5/23/2007: In at Case with a renewable scholarship of $9,000 per year. This throws a wrench into the Oregon plans..... I need to accept their offer by June 8, so I'm accepting now.

The fact that you went to school AND worked full time throughout undergrad speaks volumes about your ability to handle pressure and succeed. Honestly, I believe your LSAT is solid, but you may need to provide some sort of explanation for your GPA. In any case, I think you will get into at least some of the schools you applied for. Good luck and I am sure I will be rooting for ya!

accounting GPA
Saturday, October 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

I majored in accounting as well. AND YEA.. TRUST ME : I know how HARD the accounting degree curriculum is. to pull out a 3.2 with 150 (credits to sit for CPA exam) is not easy! I would disregard the previous comment., you dont need to explain your GPA i dont think. Infact, you should be proud of it. and not sure if you worked while in college, but if you did, hats off to you. I will keep an eye out to see how things turn out for you this cycle. go accountants! :)

Good luck!!!
Thursday, March 09 2006 at 07:00 PM

On all your apps And i wouldn't worry about the GPA much. You seem to have a strong enough app that even if it was a low GPA (which it's not) it'd be forgiveable

thanks!
Saturday, October 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the nice note. I appreciate it. I really do hope that they take work exp into account, cus i dont want to get summarized with just two numbers. it would not look favorable. .we'll see how the process unfolds. ..best of luck to you!

imp info abt acctng students
Saturday, October 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

just wanted to share soemthing with you i jus read it today. this is coming from Deloggio's website: "Hard science majors (biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, sometimes computer science) are considered difficult majors, and law schools may allow quite a bit of leeway on your gpa -- sometimes more than half a point. But these same majors may raise questions about the extent to which your verbal skills have been honed; try to take a few extra liberal arts courses if you are a hard science major. Accounting majors are viewed with very mixed regards. Some people view accounting as a trade rather than a profession, and hold little esteem for degrees in this area. Others see it as requiring discipline and analytical skill, and consider it appropriate prelaw preparation"- I would be eager to find out how this impacts for both of us (being acctng majors), i am being optimistic i think most schools should think of this as a hard core major. oh well. we'll see :)

It looks like we're in the same batch at gonzaga and our numbers are pretty close. I'll be checking your account to see when you're accepted :)

good luck to you too!
Wednesday, December 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the note. We do have identical numbers, and I have a letter from a senior acct exec at my office and a prof, too. Are you going to be able to visit any places? We can compare notes when/if you do.

re: Your critic
Saturday, October 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

haha. acctgnerd - its not his fault. Poor guy has probably not met ANY intelligent person in his life. Tells a lot about his background/circle of people. Good luck Yourcritic, You will definitely run into some intelligent folks here at LSN. :) [& P.S Yourcritic : if you have the guts to talk trash about someone, atleast have the audacity to come out of the hiding : Your peanut-size brain may think acctng majors are dumb but your anonymous msg leads me to believe that you are worse - a coward! haah]

Hello
Wednesday, August 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Nice to meet you on LSN, acctgnerd. As for Pepperdine, your 159 is their median score. Your GPA is solid too, so you should stand a very good chance for getting accepted. A buddy of mine got in with a 159; however his GPA was a bit higher (3.5). If oyu get a chance to visit, I highly recommend it. Even if you just want to check out Malibu, it's worth the trip! Give old Ken Starr a call and show him you really want to attend ;-)

"Your critic"
Wednesday, August 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Also, didn't Your critic post that same sh*t on your profile lionheart? LOL he must be running out of material.

visits
Wednesday, December 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

Haven't made the rounds yet with visiting. I didn't want to visit if I was rejected. I'll probably hit Penn State, CWRU, and ASU at some point though.

penn state
Wednesday, December 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

Weird. I wonder why the inconsistency w/ this whole process. I've scheduled a big visit trip at the end of this month: Pitt, Case, OSU, Toledo, and Chicago schools. Out of those you've only applied to Case, but I'll take pics and let you know how it goes if you want.

Gonzaga Congrats
Tuesday, January 16 2007 at 07:00 PM

I just found out from Gonzaga too. They sent me an e-mail to some admitted students online chat. Strange, but glad to know I was accepted.

Congrats
Sunday, September 17 2006 at 08:00 PM

on Gonzaga and that nice money package. That sounds like a tough offer to refuse.

Tough decision
Monday, October 02 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey congrats on all your acceptances! You got some nice acceptances too. As far as UO and WU with scholarship money given, there does not seem to be any financial disadvantage at either school. UO (t2) is more highly regarded school than Willamette (t3) in the Northwest. But the difference is probably not much when you do well in either school. So I guess it comes down to where you wanna be for three years: Salem or Eugene. Also consider what school name you want on your future resume. However, you are still waiting from Seattle and Lewis and Clark. I know L&C has a great reputation... and Seattle is excellent if you want to work in Seattle. I noticed you're an accountant. If you're interested in doing tax law, Denver is also a great school due to its high reputation for tax law.

L&C
Thursday, January 18 2007 at 07:00 PM

what's up with Lewis and Clark? You and I seem to be among the few that haven't heard anything yet - especially in the time frame we applied. They have an ASD at the end of March, but I can't buy a ticket unless I hear some good news! Good Luck!

Re:
Thursday, January 18 2007 at 07:00 PM

Tell me about it...I just got rejected from Mason today. I'm honestly considering a move to Portland whether I get in or not.

L&C deferral
Thursday, January 18 2007 at 07:00 PM

Me too! They say they don't need any more information, but pending a few more decisions and an attempt to get some money from Howard, I'll probably write them a letter letting them know I'll be in Portland anyway, so if they want me they got me.

U of O
Wednesday, January 24 2007 at 07:00 PM

Nevermind. I hate U of O. Withdraw. -No I'm going mostly off a reaction to the campus and the ppl there... I'd move there in a heartbeat. I did meet w/ admissions and got to evaluate a few things. Let me know if there are specifcs I can address and I'd be happy to shoot over an email...

Goals...
Thursday, February 15 2007 at 07:00 PM

I just thought it was cool to see I am not the only prospective law student aspiring to be a CPA as well! I wish you lots of luck but it seems as though you will not need it!

Case Western Reserve
Sunday, February 11 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hey, it seems that we are among several people on LSN to receive the same scholarship from Case at the same time. Are you planning on attending? I'm not sure if I am but I am very seriously considering it. It also seems that you and I have a very similar dilemma. We are both accepted at decent local schools with scholarships lower than that offered by Case Western. In my case, I have a $16,000 scholarship to the University of San Diego so I'm very confused about which school to choose. I'm going to ask USD to match Case's offer first. What about you?
