Congratulations on UNLV. So out of curiousity, how come you applied to the PT program instead of the FT program? Is it strictly because you want to work through law school? Or is it because you felt that your LSAT wasn't high enough for the FT day?
I'm still waiting, but I think my file is quite complicated, since I'm trying to start law school over somewhere else, whereas I have matriculated somewhere else. I think, since I haven't heard from them, I will send in an addendum or something, having to do with the medical and family reasons, even though I touched on that a little in my personal statement.
Congratulations again. UNLV is a great school.
Congrats! Boyd is a great school. I am a PT 1L. Coming here was a wise decision. Let me know if you have any ??? about the program.
Congratulations on your decision to attend the William S. Boyd School of Law at UNLV. My name is Mark Smith and I am the President of the Law Schools Chapter of the Nevada Trial Lawyers Association. On behalf of our organization, I would like to welcome you to the school. It has been my personal experience that BSL offers an excellent academic program. Additionally, the school maintains a close relationship with many members of the Las Vegas legal community.
As President of the NTLA (law student division), I have secured 20 NTLA student membership scholarships from a very prominent and well-respected Las Vegas attorney. Student membership in the NTLA is regularly $25 per academic year, but thanks to the generosity of this area attorney, I am able to offer you membership at no charge for the upcoming 2007/08 school year.
The following passage has been excerpted the Law Schools Student Organizations webpage:
The Nevada Trial Lawyers Association (NTLA) is an organization of independent lawyers who represent consumers and share the common goal of improving the civil justice system. The NTLA Student Chapter helps prepare law students to engage in the fulfillment of this goal upon entering practice by teaching students how to become powerful courtroom advocates for their clients.
The Nevada Trial Lawyers Association provides an excellent opportunity for you to get to know many members of the Las Vegas legal community. Our parent organization is eager to continue its positive relationship with Boyd School of Law and it student body. Involvement in the schools chapter can provide student members with excellent networking opportunities; admittedly, it helped me to secure my first (and current) employment opportunity in the legal field.
As the newly elected president of this student organization, I have some big ideas for the upcoming school year and attorney members of NTLA Las Vegas are eager to help make this one of the best student orgs at the law school.
If you would like more information, or are interested in joining this potentially powerful student organization, please initiate contact by emailing me (my email address should be visible to you).
Congratulations, once again, on your decision to attend this fine law school and I hope to hear from you very soon.
Very Truly Yours,
Mark R. Smith
NTLA Law Student President
