Extra Curricular Information

Worked Full time all through college.
Currently working as a case coordinator for the National Arbitration Forum
Was on the Judiciary Hearing Board in college

Additional info & updates

Interested in Enviro Law and public health. I majored in environmental policy, institutions, and behavior. I concentrated in international enviro law and solid waste management

I am bilingual in Portugese

I received a full merit scholarship from Appalachian school of law. Tempting... a full scholarship is so hard to pass up, but they will still remain my safety. I withdrew from CUNY because they gave me a hard time about my LOR's... I felt insulted.

12/5/05: Big envelope came in the mail from Albany. Accepted! Hoping some scholarship info will follow

12/13/05: Finally heard from NYLS. They were one of the first schools I applied to! They have yet to pull my LSDA file, but at least they acknowledged my existance!

12/15/2005 Well today I'm feeling some regrets about the application process. I wish I tried for fee waivers... but most of all I should have applied to Rutgers Newark. I was rejected there last cycle, so I was traumatized and didn't apply again. I think I have improved so much over the year... my LSAT is much higher, I have a full year of experience in the legal field and so on. Oh well.

12/16/05: In at Pace! Withdrew my application from Appalachian.

12/22/05: In at VERMONT!!!!! Large package came priority mail

12/28/05: Gave into the pressure. Applied to Rutgers Newark. Oh well, I'll consider it a donation to my alma mater if I don't get in.

**So I have no idea where I'll end up next year. Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated**

1/3/06: NYLS finally pulled my LSDA file. I applied in October. They probably would've never pulled it if I didn't call them the other day and question them. For such an expensive school you would think they would be more efficent. Well that concludes my apps. I'm not sending out anymore... Time to sit and wait.

1/4/06: Seton Hall Rejection, and that is all I have to say about that

1/17/06: Came home from a week long vacation in the Dominican Republic to find a rejection from Cardozo... oh well it's to expensive to live in the city anyway.

2/7/06: Accepted to NYLS. I would LOVE to go to school in the city, but $38,00 is absurd! No mention of money so I guess I would be on my own.

2/8/06: Mailed out my deposit to PACE!!! I will be sending out notices of withdrawal to all school listed on my page. Except for Rutgers... I still have a glimmer of hope that they may take me.

It's Hard!

Cardozo is the best school with reputation, but Vermont has the program I want. I guess I have to make the choice between sticking with enviro law or going with the rankings... that is assuming I get in! I really don't know what to do!

pace
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

pace never even crossed my mind. hm, maybe i'll look into it. make it my 28th application. *vomit* if we both go to vermont law school that'd be sweet. let's be homies.

Congrats!
Sunday, December 04 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Albany!! I applied there too...I am jealous!!! ;)

Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

Hi, we both got an acceptance letter from albany on the same day. I also got a big envelope. do you know when they will send scholarship info? What do you think of this school?

albany
Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

have you ever been there? I'm not sure exactly where Albany ranks for me but I guess its somewhat of a backup. its 3rd tier, not 4th so thats good. I was really happy about the acceptance though. you?

Thanks!
Sunday, December 04 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the encouragment! I hope to hear from Pace Law pretty soon too. They are one of my top choices! Did you interview with them? I was able to schedule one while I was home for Thanksgiving break and I thought it went pretty well!! I'm pretty psyched...like you said, hopefully we will hear from them soon!

Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

i went up there to check it out. it seemed nice. the director of admissions was really nice and the students seemed friendly.

Congrats on Pace! It isn't binding is it? You should have a great chance at your first choice!!! You may also be able to qualify for a scholarship at Seton!

congrats
Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

on Pace. If I get in Pace, I would have a hard time deciding between that and Albany. Which do you think is better?

NYLS
Monday, November 28 2005 at 07:00 PM

Yes, NYLS is crazy expensive! I won't be going there without a scholarship! Pace is binding and it isn't. It is kinda wierd. I really like it there so I plan on going unless I get into Cardozo.

pace
Monday, November 28 2005 at 07:00 PM

I thought it was to, but the letter I got cleared it up. It is binding if you accept their financial offer. Once you send in the deposit (which is due Feb), you have to withdraw. They sent me a letter where you can check a box saying you reject the offer and you will be attending another school

Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on all of your applications. However, if you are not planning on going to Pace, please withdraw asap, b/c I would love to go there. I don't mean to sound like a gerk. Once again, congrats and I hope you get into Cardozo - its a great school.

Congratulations!! When did you go "complete"?

NYLS
Monday, November 21 2005 at 07:00 PM

My acceptance came in the mail. You have better numbers than me so i know you'll get in too! Good luck!

Pace
Wednesday, August 31 2005 at 08:00 PM

Did you get any scholarship money from Pace? Thanks.

Pace Scholarship
Wednesday, August 31 2005 at 08:00 PM

Did you get your $5k from Pace in the same big envelope or separately? Thanks.

Numbers
Wednesday, August 31 2005 at 08:00 PM

I'll update my numbers as soon as I get replies from all my target schools. Thanks for answering.

ALBANY
Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

i didnt get any scholarship info yet either. but dont worry b/c they said they will start sending that stuff out in january.

hofstra vs. syracuse
Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

What do you think is better, Hofstra or Syracuse?

vermont!
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

congrats on vermont!!! i got waitlisted from them today... eeeee!

Thanks
Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats to you too on Albany! I haven't received any $$$ yet but I'll let ya know if I do. How about you? BTW do you have a "top" choice?

re: VLS
Wednesday, December 28 2005 at 07:00 PM

I've heard nothing but good things about VLS, and if I don't get into UA or ASU, I will probably attend. I lived in DC and worked for the Justice Department last year; I really liked the east coast, and would practice back east. However, I have family ties out west that will play a major part in deciding where to practice. I think the question we both need answered is: does a VLS degree transfer? I suspect it does if you specialize in environmental law. But anything else, it may just be another tier 3 degree. Thoughts? Also, have you decided on attending Vermont? I think I'm going to schedule a visit soon.

re last VLS ambiguity
Wednesday, December 28 2005 at 07:00 PM

by "transfer," I meant "travel." -- as in "not regional." Does that clear things up? :)

Seton Hall
Wednesday, September 28 2005 at 08:00 PM

I hope something pulls through. This is the third year I am applying to law school. If anything, they should be impressed with my persistance!! Good luck with the rest of your apps, looks like you have some options.

NYLS
Wednesday, August 31 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thank you. NYLS is $36,480 for a full-time program. And they hardly give any scholarship. Pace is $31,224.

NYLS
Monday, December 19 2005 at 07:00 PM

Good luck! I just heard yesterday and I'm guessing since I'm in you should have no problem (and will likely get some $$$). Let me know!

Pace?!
Monday, January 02 2006 at 07:00 PM

Sorry for the suprise, but I thought Vermont was your #1! What is swaying you toward Pace (since I applied there as well, though I am not sure of my chances)? BTW, I don't think I said congrats on Albany, those tricky WLers for me!

heyy
Wednesday, December 14 2005 at 07:00 PM

great job with ur apps so far... when did u graduate rutgers... im at seton hall right now graduating in may

$$$
Wednesday, November 30 2005 at 07:00 PM

My problem exactly (passing up such an awesome scholarship). Hae you visited Vermont? If you're in NJ it's not THAT far (though I did move to VA from HI lol). Pace does have a lot of great qualities, though. It's a great, tough decision to have to make! Congrats!

heyy
Wednesday, December 14 2005 at 07:00 PM

thats cool, what have u been up to in ur time off? my first choice is rutgers newark because of the instate tuition and reputation, but my deferral isnt to appealing. All of my friends with a sub 156-157 have been deferred so far so im not sure if i even have a chance later on down the road. Im also waiting on hofstra and syracuse, both of which i would go to. if not, duquesne is probably where i may end up... what about you??

Vermont
Thursday, November 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

I like Vermont; it's definately in my top 5. However, the tuition expenses render the possibility of my attending Vermont unrelaistic. The acceptance packet did not enclose any information regarding scholarship awards - though the free issue of vermont life magazine was a nice touch. So, i am assuming that I am going to have to finance the entire 28,000 dollars in order to attend. If this is the case, I already have better offers elsewhere. Nevbertheless, I am going to ride this application cycle out to the beginning of April, for I could very well obtain information regarding financial aid that may sway me towards VLS or somewhere else.

NYLS
Sunday, December 04 2005 at 07:00 PM

Some people have told me negative things. Of all the schools in NYC, I think it's held in the lowest regard with employers. But just like you, I think it would be AWESOME to go to school in NYC. Also, I don't think it's fair to rip on their reputation TOO much...their competition is coming from schools like NYU and Columbia. NYLS is still a tier III too. We'll see! Like you said, hopefully they will get back at us soon with good news!! They took MONTHS to pull my report.

Wednesday, October 26 2005 at 08:00 PM

it looks like you've already decided on pace, but i wanted to give a plug for Vermont. south royalton is a beautiful little town, and the class i sat in on there has been second only to BC in all of the classes i've sat in on so far. the school itself is freakin' awesome.

pace ay?
Wednesday, March 01 2006 at 07:00 PM

I also was accepted at pace with some $$ which is nice bc it is expensive. I think it will come down to pace and VT for me, although vT has has not offered me money. I plan on trying to use PACE scholarship as leverage. I was wondering what made you choose pace?

pace
Wednesday, March 01 2006 at 07:00 PM

Im going throught W plains next week on my way to Roger Williams and VLS. I went to pace for the interview and Im just going to stop in quick, but I doubt I will go to admitted students day because its a 5 or 6 hour drive. If you go let me know how it is. Im going to have a tough time deciding between the two, and Im thinking I may end up getting the MLES with my JD if I go to VLS or get my LLM after my JD at pace.

question
Tuesday, February 28 2006 at 07:00 PM

hey - got into pace. strongly considering it. maybe we could talk? i'd love to know why others are saying yes there. feel free to email me. p.s. any scholarship money? p.p.s. don't think i'm a nerd or anything, just kind of lost. have 6 acceptances so far.

IM
Tuesday, February 28 2006 at 07:00 PM

I just totally kind of stalked you and left you an IM. Hopefully you'll be flattered by that and not freaked out. We should talk about Pace - it's slowly making it's way up my list.

Pace

Hi! Are you going to the admitted students day this sat? I live in Rockland, so my big question is whether I'm going to live at home/in a dorm/in an apt. off campus.. Are you going to live on campus?

Admitted Students
Wednesday, September 28 2005 at 08:00 PM

Did you attend the admitted students day last weekend? What did you think? I am happy I went. Seems like they really make an effort to maintain an open door policy for all students. I also received my financial aid package and I was granted some money. One more reason to go to school there if Rutgers denies my application.

See you in the fall
Sunday, September 25 2005 at 08:00 PM

I'm happy so many of us got admitted into Pace. I haven't had a chance to visit the campus since I live in Oregon, so I'd love to chat more about the school & why you chose it. I'm on MSN: punkbvr@hotmail.com
