Additional info & updates

i went to a tough school, studied science and philosophy, partied a bit too much and my gpa shows it.. oh well........

1= my top choices.
2= my three more realistic top choices: one in philly, one in nyc and one in dc.

penn is my top choice..
its a stretch, so in all honesty temple is my top choice... its instate tuition is a bargain, i live and want to work in philly, i have friends there and it has a great reputation on the east coast for producing top notch trial attorneys..

fordham and gwu acceptances will make my decision tough..

12-21-06: Quinnipiac via mail. 25k a year scholarship. Hopefully the start of plenty of good news in the next two months....

01-16-07: TEMPLE!!! The letter took forever to get here... it was sent out Jan. 4th... man my mail sucks... The thin white envelope scared the shit out of me! I am so happy!

01-23-07: Rutgers-Camden via email. Named a Dean's Academic Promise Scholar worth 5k yearly.,, Keep the good news coming...

01-24-07: Rutgers-Newark via email. Full letter and packet coming later this week they said. 4 for 4 baby!!!

01-26-07: Hofstra via package including a Hofstra Law t-shirt . $25k a year scholarship (requires a 3.25 gpa).

01-29-07: I applied to Catholic as a super-safety... i got waitlisted!!! what?????????? have to assume its yield protection since similar schools threw money at me (hofstra, quinnipiac)

02-12-07: Big money from Drexel... a few months ago this would have been an option... but with a Temple acceptance there is nothing that could get me to attend a non-accredited law school

02-15-07: this just in.... decided to apply to Georgetown part time... figure id give it a shot and see what happens!

02-20-07: In at Seton Hall, letter sent out on the 7th... $27k renewable scholarship... maybe i can use this to get a couple K out of temple?!?

02-27-07: Just got the letter from GW. Its a waitlist... im sending it back indicating Id like to still be considered for both full and part time! Honestly, I am happy to just be waitlisted! Without a doubt though, Ill be more happy to get an acceptance!

03-13-07: VERY Quiet past two weeks... where are you penn georgetown and fordham??????

03-22-07: Waitlisted at American... immediately withdrawn... wasnt going there over temple anyway

03-26-07: Waitlisted at William and Mary...

03-29-07: Waitlisted at Fordham...

04-09-07: Called Villanova... they still haven;t reviewed my application... that was complete 3 months ago.. Called Penn.. my app still hasn't been reviewed... so that means i am sending my deposit into Temple!!! I'll still hold out some hope for Penn, but I am excited to say that I plan on being a part of the class of 2010 at Temple Law!!!!

04-26-07: Called Villanova. Accepted!! Gotta see about money... Theyd have to make it cheaper than Temple for me to go...

for the vote of confidence. it's good to know that someone out there knows and understands the pain of applying to law school. btw, you have an AMAZING lsat score, why don't you apply to more schools in the top 20? i think you'll get into at least a few of those if you decide to apply. penn is a great school. a friend of mine is a 1L there right now and he's loving it. hope you get in as well! best of luck!

Hey, Thanks a bunch man, that's really nice of you Congrats, hope you get into your top choices!

So are you getting as curious as me about temple? We have very similar numbers, and its a bit unsettling not to get an acceptance when so many others are. Anyway, best of luck with the whole process

good luck man.

just wanna give my support to a sub 3.0 gpa splitter!

good luck

Good luck to you too. Hopefully you'll hear from Penn and the others soon

thnx

hey good job with temple! Congratulations...now tell them to hook me up too!

Good luck to you...

I haven't seen too many people from Johns Hopkins on this site. I think you have a great chance at Penn with your lsat and your masters degree work there. Best wishes!

good luck!
Tuesday, May 09 2006 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, it was a good day for me yesterday. Good luck with the rest of your apps.

good luck!

Thanks for the congrats. It was pretty nice to be surprised by that email - I guess it is time to visit Newark...

Thanks...
Thursday, October 19 2006 at 08:00 PM

for the congrats, and likewise on yours! I'm not really sure what I'll be doing in the fall, but Temple would be soooo cheap. My inner practical finance guru and my inner prestige whore are seriously at war right now. But I only applied to schools I'd actually want to go to, so if it ends up being Temple, I'll be a happy girl. Good luck with the rest of your apps, and maybe I'll see you in North Philly in August...

did you consider applying to George Mason? The app is free online and they were kind to me, we have very similar applications numberwise, I think yours is probably much much stronger than mine when you consider other factors.

Congrats

Congrats on choosing Temple, man. I'm glad that a fellow biologist will be joining me in the 1L class, and one from Philly to boot! Looking at your school description as "top private," we might be fellow Quaker alums also.

Hi! I am sending in my Temple deposit today so I just wanted to say hello to a future classmate.

Nice!

I just saw your message - congrats on making a decision, and it'll be nice to meet you once school starts!
