Additional info & updates

The numbers next to the schools are for my own reference, representing their standing in TLS's rankings page -- they do not necessarily reflect my choice.

12/12: Since everyone else at TLS is doing this whole application blog thing, I figured I'd jump on the bandwagon. Hello to all the lurking adcomms -- we know you're watching! In any case, I've got about half of my applications done, and all of the corresponding reports have been sent out. Life, so far, is good.

12/12: Just went Complete on U of Arizona. Eeeeexcellent.

01/06: Sweet jeebus. I just got a small envelope from Temple -- I was expecting them to just tell me that my app was complete (I've gotten a few of those), but I've BEEN ACCEPTED! I have since informed my friends and performed my happy dance.

01/11: Just got accepted into McGeorge as a Legal Scholar. I'm a little hazy on all the details, but they want to fly me out for an open house and buy all my textbooks for the first year. So far I'm 2 for 2 -- I could -really- get used to this.

01/13: Accepted into USD and U of Arizona. 4 for 4.

01/24: Applications are done.

01/27: Accepted into St. Louis and UNLV, with a full ride to the latter and a nomination to the competition for a rull ride to the former.

02/27: Accepted into Santa Clara. Exactly one month since my previous admissions -- I admit, the lull was beginning to get to me. **UPDATE** Received a U of San Francisco admission e-mail today, too!

03/01: Got my admission packet from USF, including a $24,000 renewable scholarship, and an acceptance into U of Oregon today with a $6,000 renewable scholarship.

04/06: I came to the realization that UNLV was the best offer, for several reasons. Here's hoping that my slew of withdrawals helps someone out!

04/18: San Diego bumped my offer up by $6,000 per year. Heh. I guess they didn't get my e-mail.

I'm pretty sure you're the first one in! Congratulations on the acceptance and the scholarship!! Hopefully they're mailing one my way up north. I'm afraid they'll discrimate against us wolves in favor of you rebels, I guess we'll just have to see. Congrats again

Congrats

What's your #1 choice?

Any info on UNLV would be appreciated!

I would love to hear your thoughts on the school and the town. I have not spent very much time in Vegas, but the resident tuition is making it difficult to look elsewhere. What do you think?

You are so lucky!!! UNLV is a great school. It's really underrated, but I'm sure it's going to move back up into the T-100 sector again. Vegas has so much to offer for all types of law, and the town is great in general. I lived there for 4 1/2 years and loved it. I am really hoping to go back. Congratulations!

What in particular made you pick UNLV? I am visiting the campuse next tuesday, and unless i get accepted off of my three waitlist schools, that is where i will be this fall. Any thoughts would be appreciated!!

Congrats and Invitation

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
