on NYLS! Which school is your top choice?

top choice
Monday, November 26 2007 at 07:00 PM

UCLA is definitely the top choice, but I would be happy to attend any of the schools that I applied to. Definitely looking to go to Los Angeles if I can, but would not mind whatsoever staying in NYC. I just wish decisions wouldn't take so long. By any chance, have you filled out your need access application for NYLS? I need to submit mine before I get a financial aid package from them.

Similar stats and similar schools. I wish I would have applied PT to Loyola...too late. Is John Marshall a decent school? I applied as a last minute safety..

called them..
Wednesday, January 23 2008 at 07:00 PM

I called Loyola Chicago and they gave me a big "no" on reapplying for part time ): I guess I can always apply next year for part time if I don't get in anywhere I like this year. My apps are taking FOREVER

NYLS financial aid letter
Monday, November 26 2007 at 07:00 PM

financial aid
Monday, November 26 2007 at 07:00 PM

it has been over a month since I completed all of the necessary paperwork, and I still haven't heard from them. I also emailed my financial aid counselor at NYLS a couple of days ago but no reply.

I see you have a few part-time offers mixed in with teh full-time. which school are you leaning towards?

Monday, November 26 2007 at 07:00 PM

UPITT and Loyola Chicago are both good choices. Do you know what type of law you want to practice? Both schools are well within the Top 100 rank.

That's great! I'm happy for you. I'm not sure where I will be attending in the fall, but by the looks of it, it will be LA. Loyola went to decision a couple of days ago, so I am waiting for some more good news to come my way. Definitely keep in touch. Do you have aim or facebook?
