Additional info & updates

3/11/10 - so today I am starting to get sick of my job. Its not that job is bad, but its just not for me anymore. I am anticipating some type of response from some schools soon. Im really hoping for Rutgers so I dont have to move, but its doubtful due to my low GPA and LSAT scores. If I dont get into a local school, then I will move somewhere new to me. Maybe Miami or San Diego.

3/16/10 - heard back from Washburn. Talk about a rejection. It was one paragraph long telling me that my app looked good but they are not interested. Its alright. I liked their tuition but wasn't big on moving to KS. Gotta keep on trucking. Hopefully things work out, otherwise im gonna try for med school.
P.S. Widener finally cashed the app fee. That has to mean something is happening

3/19/10 - So I sent two more apps last night. Michigan State and Oklahoma City University. A long shot and a probable acceptance. We will see. I am starting to get nervous. I need to get into some school so I can quit my job and move on with my life.

3/22/10- Rejected from U of Arkansas Little Rock via email. Thats unfortunate I was looking forward to a big acceptance packet. That was a school I was actually interested in. I gotta keep on trucking. I still have a bunch of schools to hear from. we will see

3/24/10 - I sent out two application addendums today. Cooley asked for more info about my underage drinking charge and my two tickets from 10 YEARS AGO. I am fully disclosing everything to everyone now. It would really suck to not be able to take the BAR because of a speeding ticket. So its official, I will hate myself if i dont get into Cooley. Come on...

3/24/10 - I just got a cold email from Florida Coastal. What a bummer. I am really getting worried. I thought for sure that they would offer me at least a waitlisted notice. I emailed them asking if there was anything specific about my app that made them reject me. Hopefully they will let me know so I can fix this problem for my remaining apps. I bet they will say get a better LSAT. Talk about a mood killer.

3/25/10 - Thanks for the feedback ppl. So i heard back form florida coastal as to why they rejected me. They said my gpa and lsat were to low for consideration at this time. sounds like bs to me. I think i need to review all my application materials and ensure that it is all in order. I think Cooley will work out. Ive been in contact with admissions there for the last week. they said i qualify for 25% scholarship. if they say that, i would think that they are interested. hopefully. im just looking for one yes to get through all these no's. todays a lot better than yesterday

3/25/10 - U of Baltimore decline email. wonderful. my pending school list is getting shorter and shorter.

3/29/10 - Im giving a lot of updates these days. I have 4 more apps that I will send out and then we will wait. I sent out an update to CUNY telling them that if I get in, I will attend, hopefully they havnt sent out a decision yet and this will make an impact. Id really love to go to that school, its close to home, good public service program and its affordable. id be able to pay my first yr tuition in cash. If that doesnt work out, im feeling confident about Cooley. Ive been in contact for them every 3 days, whether they email me or I email them. If they didnt want me they wouldnt be talking to me soo much.

4/1/10 - I sent out 2 more apps last night. Cal Western and Ave Maria. My dad wants me to go to school in Florida (Ave Maria) because he siad it would be great to take a vacation and visit me at the same time. I think he has his priorities mixed up. I really need to send out updates to the schools I applied to also. Ive had some changes since I first started submitting apps. The good news is, I am much more confident in my applications than I was a few weeks ago. Now I am just anxious about getting in somewhere.

4/1/10 - I got my first acceptance letter. Thank you Thomas M Cooley. Now that I got into somewhere im feeling much better. Lets hope i get into some more so i have some options

4/6/10 - waitlisted at Widener. a little disapointed about that. i thought for sure I would be addmitted with a little bit of dough.

4/9/10 - im visiting CUNY on Tuesday, hopefully visiting the school will help with my chances of getting in. i doubt it but i dont see how it can hurt. Also i checked my status on Rutgers Status Check and it said my file is complete, but then on the required doc section is said that missing wait list reply form receiving. i have no idea what that means. does it mean that i am waitlisted? or that my file is complete and waiting for review? hopefully i get into some more schools. i cant see how i will only get into Cooley. Cooley is looking pretty good right now. at least its the most affordable 25% scholarship sounds pretty good to me

4/14/10 - i visted CUNY yesterday. i really like the school. hopefully by being there, that will make some type of an impact. its really small but i like a lot of things about it. oh yea i got waitlisted by another school i should have gotten into...St.Thomas -FL... kind of bumed out about that. Id like to have some options. hopefully CUNY gives me option number 2. regardless, i think that anywhere i got waitlisted, i can get into especially if i tell them i will go there for sure.

4/14/10 - I got accepted into the summer program at Oklahoma City University. i dunno how i feel about that. i thought id get some money but it doesnt look like that. right now seems like cooley is where its at, but hopefully CUNY says yes. i hope im not building myself up in my mind too much for CUNY. All my easy schools are out of the way, im expecting rejections from the rest.

5/25/10 - Its been a while since ive been on this site. Since then a few things have changed. Ive been waitlisted out the rear and I want to go to CUNY even more. I sent them another LOR from my mentor. Hopefully this extra LOR will help. Ive made it very clear that I am interested and they are my first choice.

6/22/10- Decided to go to Cooley in Ann Arbor. Wish me luck.

Hey Dude, I'm sure you'll get into Cooley and many of the other schools you applied to. I'm also from NJ so yay for that! It's good to disclose everything now. I doubt the law schools truly care about something that happened ten years ago, it's just probably a formality. Stay Confident!

Monday, December 21 2009 at 07:00 PM

Sorry =(. My file has been in review for 3 mos and still nothing from them. I doubt it is your LSAT, they have accepted several people with a 149, even lower. I hear ya on wanting to quit your job and move on with your life. I am looking into a Masters in Teaching if my cycle doesn't turn around (highly doubting it will at this point) Goo Luck with the rest of your cycle.

I understand your frustration and desperation to want something more than what you are doing right now. As well as the frustration associated with not knowing if you have a future, let alone where it will be. Try and keep your chin up and I'm sure something will stumble your way. You could always have my LSAT score! "When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us."

I got dinged too =( It's looking more and more like LS just isnt what I am suppose to do right now and teaching is becoming even more appealing.

Good luck charm??

Hey thanks for the kind words. and it worked! After I got your message I received my first acceptance! Good luck on the rest of your cycle!

Identical Numbers
Saturday, March 13 2010 at 07:00 PM

Hey, I just noticed that our numbers are almost identical. It looks like we have applied to a few of the same of schools. Hopefully we both have good luck and are able to attend school this fall!

Tuesday, March 02 2010 at 07:00 PM

See! You turned our cycle around! Start spreading the love to others in our same situation! Continued good luck!

don't worry!
Saturday, September 12 2009 at 08:00 PM

i know it seems rough man. but you'll get in somewhere...and it's all about what you make of it once you're there. get great grades and the rest will come - despite what anyone tells you! Good luck!

How was the visit to CUNY? Were you able to speak with anyone about your application while you were there?

Saturday, March 13 2010 at 07:00 PM

Hey,I am glad that your visit with CUNY went great. I really hope that the visit and the interest you are showing tips everything in your favor. As far as Hofstra goes, I have a visit scheduled this Friday and I am hoping to speak to a counselor while I am there. I guess we have to do everything possible to stand out. LOL. This is quite the process and I am sure it's going to work out for us.

Good Luck

Good Luck with your cycle...

Thursday, March 18 2010 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the advice. I got ahold of them today and they told me a letter was in the mail. Good luck with the remaining schools!

Tuesday, March 02 2010 at 07:00 PM

Hey don't mind at all. I had originally sent my app with only one LOR (all I had at the time) so it never went complete. By the time my other LOR had been added to LSAC I had been admitted to NYLS which is where I would prefer to go between the two. I'd be happy at either though-I really like NYC

Any news recently?
Saturday, March 13 2010 at 07:00 PM

Hi, Just thought I would check in to see if you have heard from any schools recently? Hope you have been getting good news!
