FSU Ding, proceeding to killself

So I still have hope at FSU, but not much. Rejected at Miami, man fuck the Hurricanes, Labor Day cant get here soon enough. Anyways looks like FIU then transfer back to Talli is my plan of action. Good luck to everyone and all who were nice to me. This whole process is such a bitch, but what can you do.

Withdrew from Syracuse, though it was my early favorite, reality set in, and there was no feasible reason to spend that much for an education, when I can receive something comparable for so much less. Not to mention I dont like the North or New York, and Id be facing stiff competition for jobs up there. So now its FIU, or by a prayer FSU or UM.

Waitlisted at LSU, I think my late complete date has something to do with it. However I'm a little upset because on the LSAC website it said nothing about a personal statement, then I got an e-mail form LSU saying that if they needed anything they would let me know. I heard nothing for 2 and 1/2 months, called for a status update, and then they said they were missing my personal statement, WTF?

First Rejection at PSU, bound to come sooner or later. A little PO'd that they didn't even give me a waitlist considering my numbers. The whole dual campus and transitional space situation threw me for a loop anyhow.

Accepted at FIU, no word on money yet. By far my cheapest option, something to think about.

Got my wish, WL at Hofstra, A little disappointed but it was expected and had fallen out of favor with me anyways, for the same price Syracuse is the better choice for me. (Update have decided to withdraw my app there, good luck to all on waitlist)

It been 20 days since I have heard anything, even a rejection would be welcomed so I can begin to finalize my plans. grr!

For those of you interested in Michigan State, no scholarship money was awarded to anybody below a LSAT score of 157, awards were sent 2-16-06. This information is from the office of admissions. Needless to say this is bolstering the case for Syracuse.

Went for a visit to UM today, campus left a lot to be desired. The classrooms on the tour seemed nice enough, standard fare. The tour guide and most of the students I saw were nice and friendly, and seemed unstressed, also a relatively good looking student body for a Law school. After talking to the admissions advisor I have a pretty good feeling not many people ON HOLD are going to be offered acceptance, so sorry guys but if your in this situation its an uphill battle to be sure.

Got into Syracuse today!!! I'm so excited, now I'm pretty sure I'll be attending, but still waiting on Miami and others to decide. If I get into UM I'd be crazy not to go, and the chances of FSU are very low. Go Cuse!!!!

I'm now thinking that I want to enter privite practice, maybe in a larger firm. Southern boy who wants to test himself in the ruthless arena of NYC.

Also getting kinda a late start compared to everybody, but I was wavering in my decision.(was thinking of ARMY OCS) I now decided to go ahead and apply and see what happens, I mean I took that Damn LSAT, twice! Might as well see what happens.

Received = LSAC report request

Fee waived at George Mason(I'm not going to boost their stats by getting denied),Hofstra, Western NE(said I fit scholarship profile), a nd a few other I might be forgetting that I didn't want to go to. Pride is one of my biggest flaws.

Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

about George Mason, I felt the same way. They are not using my $12 to bump their numbers!! hehe Good Luck with the rest of your apps!! Why didn't you apply to UF?

Good Luck

I think you were in the MSU law online chat the other night. Think you'll go to Syracuse?

Coming up north?
Thursday, February 23 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for your comments on my page. I'm surprised that you want to go all the way up to Syracuse from Florida...The weather is just a 'tad' worse, but the school does look pretty good. Maybe we'll be 1L's together there next year.

If you e-mail me, I'll let you know my thoughts!

PSU

I am curious about your pending apps. I hope you get accepted to PSU. I didn't apply there but I should have. Congrats on Syracuse, from what I hear it really is a great school.

FIU

Congratulations on FIU!! What did the letter look like? Huge envelope? Small envelope? Congrats!

rich bastards, huh?
Sunday, August 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

Rich bastards f'ed you over at PSU? Same thing with me from Pacific. Oh well. Guess money and connections are important, too.

Screw PSU
Thursday, February 09 2006 at 07:00 PM

Your numbers were solid for PSU. Oh Well You still have a chance with FSU and a couple others.

I've been to Dinosaur bbq and admit that I was shocked at how good it was. I had never heard of yankee bbq before. How did you get syracuse to reconsider your financial aid?

wife
Friday, January 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

I actually met her at fsu already. I was dating a girl at uf, but ditched her for my wife after the noles came to town. It was a lot of drama, but worth it. I might try to get some money from syracuse, but I was only considering syracuse because it would be easy for her to transfer up there for a little while. I'm almost certainly going to usc.

UH OH

Am I going to have some fierce competition for guys if I go to FSU for law?! Haha I am a midwesterner...I can't compete.

Did SU just offer you a need based grant or did you have to appeal? I saw on LSD that you got 8900 of grant and fws, any secrets?

HEY
Sunday, August 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

We have about the same number of views!

Friday, January 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

you made a great decision. I'd give you my seat at fsu if I could.

FSU
Thursday, January 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey, we've both got similar numbers. What exactly did your deferral letter from FSU say? I applied the same time you did but I haven't heard a peep from them..... nada. I'm really surprised it is taking this long since they told me most decisions are made in 4-6 weeks. Anyway, I called them today and they said the likely won't make a decision until END OF MAY!!!! I don't know about you but this seems very, very odd.

Glad its over?
Wednesday, February 22 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on the decision. I should be making that final FIU deposit any day now as well...
