Additional info & updates

My LSAT score was significantly lower than my practice exams , I had some sort of anxiety attack during the exam. I was too stressed to retake the test so I decided to let the admission cycle takes it's course....

I got into Thomas M Cooley, (first Acceptance) not too excited, it seems like everyone get's in. But hey at least I know I'm in somewhere. Plus they offered me a 25% scholarship towards tuition per year.

Denied at American University...ummm ok. I only applied b/c the application was free. I was kinda hurt at first b/c I never got a rejection letter before but I got over it.

Denied at Loyola Los Angeles...Damn I really wanted to go there. Not surprsied b/c my scores suck but I thought they would at least take into consideration the amount of hours I spent working during school. They told me to send them verification from each of my employers. I sent the verification on 2/1 they send me their decision 2/1 WTF? Did they even see the Verificaition...Who know's.

Denied at University of Houston Law Center...my thoughts...nobody likes me...everybody hates me..I guess I'll eat worms..Thomas M. Cooley is sounding really good right about now.

Waitlisted Howard... Why does Howard have a long waitlist..I wouldn't mind going to Howard...there is so much history there. I better start drafting a letter of interest.

Accepted Ave Maria with a 25,000 scholarship per year. Damn that's 75,000 I'm use to the Cali weather but hey I can get use the the cold :-)

Accepted Thomas Jefferson San Diego....Yes a California School Maybe I can stay home. 18,000 scholarship per year....54,000 for 3 years isn't too bad.

Accepted Flordia Coastal School of Law....hmmm ok.

Accepted into Cleo 6-Week Institute on 2/20/07, I plan to go to either Missouri or Pittsburgh June 3-July 13 for the Program. Is it worth 2,000 and missing wages for 6 weeks?

Accepted to Loyola New Orleans..Called Admissions to check my status...she said "You ready for some news...your accepted!"

Accepted to University of Miami....came in small envelope...but it was thick...first piece of paper that fell out was request for housing sheet...my heart dropped Yay! I'm starting to feel a little loved. Guess it pays off to put a lot of work into your application materials and maybe some admission committees do realize that we are human and not just a bunch of numbers!

Hastings first rejected me back in the beginning of May, but sent me an email today saying they did not review my file properly and sent a denial letter in error, and that if I wanted to still be considered for admission to appeal it. How could they do this???

On your cycle so far. I know it isnt what you were expecting but at least you will be attending somewhere this fall and if need be you can work your behind off and transfer somewhere. I am also hoping to get into the CLEO program, I am crossing my fingers and hoping. Well again congratulations and I wish for further blessings!!!

congrats on U. of Miami!!

Congrats on U of Miami acceptance. Its a great school and I think you should consider it. You have come a long way. See, perseverance does pay off. What did you think help you getting into U of Miami as their median LSAT is 157. Again congrats to a soon to be 1L.

CLEO
Saturday, October 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

It seems like you are an awesome candidate. You should definitely go for CLEO. I got accepted in there too and I will be attending for sure. Just don't know which location.. also in case if you already do'nt know this, CLEO is highly selective and they only pick 80 people in around a 1000 application from across the country. So feel loved and don't feel that no body wants you. :) cheers

yeah i talked to him before the cycle started...i just asked him if there was anything I could do this year that might improve my chances since i was on the waitlist last year. He told me that my file was strong and that if I got it in earlier that I shouldn't have a problem. But, he specifically said that if I happened to get on the waitlist again to be aggressive. So I took that to mean email and call and write a letter maybe. I guess I would just call 806-8009 and leave a message for him...just say that you are very interested in the school and would commit to going if offered admission. I would maybe write a letter explaining any deficiencies in your file...maybe have another LOR. You could email, too...cause he said to be aggressive! Let me know if you have any more questions!!

Congrats!!
Saturday, December 10 2005 at 07:00 PM

hey congrats on CLEO and acceptances to law schools. I wish you good luck with both. How did you hear about Rutgers Newark. Did they nominate you? Or the acceptance came before the CLEO acceptance? Either way , did you notify them of your acceptance to CLEO? I am curious because its one of my top choices and i am really hoping to get accepted there. Thanks and good luck to a soon to be 1L :)

cleo
Saturday, October 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

no dude i am really not sure. there are many decisions pending so I am holding out for them. If worse comes to worse, I will just do CLEO and then re apply early in the cycle next year. I cannot believe the "W" next to Loyala+Sholarship. Which school are you looking to go?Also, I have not yet been assigned the CLEO institute. So we might be attending together in Missouri. We'll see. I will keep you posted bro take care and thanks for droppin by..

SORRY
Saturday, October 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

Sorry - I totally had forgotten we had spoken earlier and with soo many msgs goin to different people I accidentally said 'dude' and 'bro'.. my bad, i apologize.

Congrats!!!
Thursday, September 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

On all of your acceptances and CLEO. I was wondering when you found out about your acceptance. And when you applied? I also was wondering did you get in outright or were you nominated?
