Extra Curricular Information

Worked for 3 years as EMT in NYC, before redirecting towards Law School with NYU certificate classes and public policy internship.
For the rest of the app Im trying to show recent success through high (for me) LSAT score and quality work, 3.90 gpa, at NYU Global Affairs program.

Used 1 professional Letter of Rec from Boss, and 1 Letter from recent NYU Prof.

EMT experience is main substance of personal statements and such.

- 02/23/11 I just got back from a whirlwind tour of schools that included admitted openhouses at Wake Forest and W&L, and visits to AU, GWU, and George Mason. If you have any questions about these schools or my visits dont hesitate to ask.

- 03/29/11 Just sent out a whole pile of Withdraw emails. Definitely doesn't feel good to turn down scholarships.

Additional info & updates

- 11/15/10 Got email notice of acceptance from American U. Seems like AU gives pretty quick responses

- 12/06/10 Got email notice of acceptance from Rutgers-Newark

- 12/09/10 Checked Fordham Status and saw I'm waitlisted. Not sure what to make of that, but I guess I should be happy its not a rejection, Fordham was kind of a reach.

-12/09/10 Checked super confusing Miami Online profile again, and unexpectedly received the "Welcome Admitted" page. Good news, but wish it was a little more personal, to feel reassured they meant me.
- Update - got an email from Miami telling me to check the profile for the admission notice, so it was a little more personal after all.

- 12/14/10 Checked status checker for Hofstra and saw "Accepted" status. No email so far.

- 12/16/10 Got Email from Wash & Lee saying I would receive my decision by 5pm. 2 hours later I got the Accepted email and a note about scholarships/forums. This was an extremely quick turn around from W&L, I only sent the app 8 days ago!

- 12/17/10 Got letter from George Mason with notice of waitlist. Bummer

- 12/20/10 Got 2 emails with acceptance and Merit Award from Catholic U.

- 12/28/10 Got email notice from George Washington of Waitlist. Cant really be upset about this at all, GW was the highest ranked of all my schools, so WL is sort of a good sign I guess. GW does not seem to offer an opportunity to request part-time for waitlisted people, so I guess I just have to wait to hear from them later.

- 01/08/11 Got big envelope from Hofstra that included Scholarship offer.

- 01/08/11 Checked status checker for Seton Hall and got Acceptance and message about admission letter to follow.

- 01/12/11 Got letter from Seton Hall with scholarship offer.

- 01/18/11 Recieved small envelope from St John's that was actually stuffed to the gills with letters informing acceptance as well as full first year scholarship.

- 01/18/11 Got email acceptance from Wake Forest. Reply's are coming in bunches now

- 01/19/11 Got email notice of waitlist from Cardozo. lame

- 01/24/11 Got email informing Scholarship offer from Wake Forest. surprising

- 01/26/11 Got email Acceptance from Brooklyn

- 01/26/11 Checked status for NY Law and found offer of admission plus note about Scholarship. Amount will be revealed in letter still to come.

- 03/11/11 No news for a while but I did get a nice scholarship offer from Brooklyn today. I was beginning to lean towards the DC area, but this swings things back a bit.

- 03/14/11 Hmm, got waitlisted by Loyola in the mail today. I guess Im getting greedy, but at this point that seems like kind of an insult. Oh well, I probably wasn't gonna move to Cali anyway.

- 03/15/11 Waitlisted by W&M today on status checker. They were pretty high on my list, blah

- 03/18/11 Got a phone call from FSU to announce acceptance.

- 03/22/11 Got email notice of Waitlist from Emory. Definitely a reach school, but all these waitlists are beginning to feel like schools just dont reject people anymore. WL is the new rejection.

- 04/04/11 Waitlisted by email from USD today. More evidence that WL is the new rejection. Wasnt really interested in San Diego at this point though.

- 04/23/11 Hmm, the streak continues. Got a letter of waitlist from Florida

- 04/25/11 Amazing! My clean streak lasted all the way until the last school, until Hastings sent the rejection letter today.

- 05/01/11 Wow! Big surprise this week as I got an email and then received an acceptance packet from GW. I wasnt expecting to get off any wait list this soon, much less from my #1 school. Still pretty stunned about all this but very excited obviously.

Yeah... it was a pretty quick reply from American. I was excited to find out that early... I had assumed I'd probably get placed in a hold pile... Good to be in somewhere as of now... Good luck with your applications

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

congrats on American, i have similar numbers and am applying there too

Hey there, similar numbers here. I got accepted to American PT along with the rest of the Nov. 15th group. Pretty exciting to be in at a solid place. I'm retaking in Dec, looking for a 17x->GW/GULC

American
Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

I wonder if American will keep up with the quick responses or if it will start slowing down...my app went complete a few days ago so I am hoping for a response this week?

Congrats on the American acceptance. Did your status on their status checker ever change to "in review" before you got a decision?

congrats

I'm applying at the end of 2011, just starting on my apps and stuff now so I'm not DYING at the end of next year. And yeah I'm hoping to either stay in California, since I want to practice here and I've heard if you're not in the t14-20 you should stay in the area you want to practice. Though I wouldn't mind practicing in DC/NY. GOOD LUCK on the rest of your cycle. (:

I got the acceptance by voicemail, lol, yesterday, and the package in snail mail today. So funny, I worked as a Paramedic for 10 years before teaching for 5 and now applying to law school!

W&L
Saturday, August 22 2009 at 08:00 PM

I love the idea of W&L, but my husband revolted at living in a small town. . .so, I didn't get to apply. He doesn't even want William and Mary, but I LOVE that school.

Hey, sorry to hear about the WL at GMU. It was definitely a reasonable target for you. I think GMU is really trying to up their selectivity this year by WListing people they think are unlikely to attend. They're probably giving the early nod to people (like me) who live in the DC/NOVA area.

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

I guess I need to just keep checking my email a lot this week...congrats on the acceptance!

Thursday, July 22 2010 at 08:00 PM

That is a sweet deal at Wake. How seriously are you considering it?

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

hey, i havent been on here in a long time so sorry about the slow response...I dont think I would go to brooklyn part-time so I think I will just visit the school and ride out the waitlist. I have been waitlisted by sooooooooo many schools its not even funny anymore

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Hey, are you going to go to the St. Johns or American ASD? Also, I can't believe I need to decide a school in a month...I don't know if thats enough time! lol
