Additional info & updates

This is my third time around. They say 3rd times a charm!!!! I took the December 2006 LSAT and got a 149. I got into some okay schools, the best being Denver Law. I was still pursuing a NFL career and all. I also had some personal and family issues that would not allow me to attend. Last year, my cycle was not so good. So I decided to retake the LSAT this December. I think I improved, just awaiting my score now. I have better work experience and volunteer experience now. I'm hoping to get into my top choice which is Seattle U. I've overcame a lot of obstacles and this is one of them. I'm very interested in Sports and Entertainment law. I'm hoping to become a sports agent. I have a lot of connections and work with a lot of the top high school talent across the country. I enjoy helping them get to the next level and giving back to the community. Wish me luck!!!!!!!!

12/29/08- Got my LSAT score back today. I scored a 152!!! Was hoping for a bit higher but I am happy with that score. It's an improvement and I think it should get me into some solid schools. I will be sending out a few applications tonight. Seattle U. is my dream school and I am hoping to get into their special admissions program that starts in June!!

1/13/09- I've gotten some fee waivers lately. Depaul, Pittsburgh, Gonzaga, Oregon, WUSTL, Lewis and Clark. I have sent most of my apps off. I have about 3 or four left to finish....Let the waiting game begin!!!!

1/16/09- Complete at Oregon Law...I was waitlisted last year. With an improved LSAT and Resume, I think I should get in this year...Very reputable program and nice school...

1/21/09- Complete at Depaul. I see a lot of people with similar numbers getting accepted. They also granted me a fee waiver. I should expect a decision in 2-3 weeks....Let's start this cycle off right!!!!

1/20/09- I applied to the University of San Francisco. Solid school, really diverse, and in a great location. I still haven't heard anything from anybody.......But I feel more confident this time around!!! Good things happen to good people....

1/22/09-Finishing up last minute apps (Santa Clara and Denver). I also received an email from Pittsburg law saying that I am complete...I have saw similar numbers get in with good money. They also sent me a fee waiver...Hope this is a good sign :)

1/28/09- Complete at UNLV and Washington University in St. Louis. I have yet to hear back from anybody. I feel good about this cycle because I know I did the best that I could. I hope admissions realize how hard it is to be a division1a football player. Not making excuses, but I played for a program that went to ten consecutive bowl games. It was very competitive and I spent well over 50 hours a week in preparation.....When everyone else was studying or going to study groups, I was on the field workin. I am much more capable than what my GPA shows. Every spring semester I maintained a 3.0 because football season was over. But even than, I had weightlifitng, speed training, treatment, film, spring football etc. The life of a division1a athlete is crucial, but rewarding :)

2/5/09- So I heard back from a school finally. Rejected at Depaul. I only applied because of the fee waiver. I have saw people with lower numbers get in. Not the way I wanted to start a cycle! I'm still optimistic.....Everyone knows where I really want to go!! I hope this cycle turns out much better. I improved my LSAT and soft factors!! I have done all that I can.....

2/24/09- So it's been a while since I last updated. That's becasue there really hasn't been anything to report. I took a short vacation to all star weekend and got my mind off of this process for a while! lol.

I'm still waiting to hear back from all my schools basically. My LSAT instructor writes a letter every year to Seattle U. and UW about her top students and non traditional students. Not only did she include me in this letter but she spoke to admissions for me! She's well respected and has been doing this for over 30 years. She's also a practicing attorney. Come on Seattle U, show me some love!!! This is the school for me...All I can do is wait!! I'm thinking about applying to Howard...I know the deadline is fast approaching!

3/5/09- Received a letter from Seattle University. After initial interview, they will consider me for the special admissions program. This is the program that I would love to get into! I should be hearing back from them by April....

Still no news...I guess no news is better than bad news. I may look at visiting Oregon Law and USF soon. I visited Oregon last year and enjoyed it..

3/9/09-VERY ROUGH DAY!!! Rejected at the University of Pittsburgh and also at Lewis & Clark. My numbers are fine for both of these schools but I was denied. I'm still praying that I get into the ARC program at Seattle University...I should be hearing something back from them by the end of the month. My head is still up and I know that someone will give me a chance...I deserve it :)

3/16/09- Still silent over here...No new news! I wrote a LOCI to Seattle U!! It would be my dream to be accepted into the ARC program and start in June! I'll be hearing back soon. I did my financial aid about two weeks ago, so now I am just patiently waiting...Come on SU!!!!!!!!!!!

3/24/09- Still QUIET.......UNLV status checker changed to decision mailed. I like this program but I know that it's very competitive. I heard that their first year class consists of 80 percent of Nevada residents....I'll know something soon! Still waiting on my one and only true love...Seattle U!!!!!!!

3/27/09- Two rejections today. One via snail mail from UNLV and one via email from Wisconsin. I'm still positive and am sure that somebody will take a chance on me. After all, I'm hard to kill................

3/28/09- Rejected from Denver today...Kind of stings! Admitted two years ago, rejected this year with a higher score. I'm 0-6....But I'm known to heat up like Kobe in the 4th quarter!!!!! I'm a 2nd half guy....Come on SU!!! Show me some love.....I promise you won't regret it :)

4/3/09- Basically rejected from Seattle U. The dean called me, I thought I was in. They tried their best to save me a seat for the special admissions program but due to a blemish on my criminal record and the WASHINGTON bar going through some changes, they didn't feel comfortable giving me a seat. They mentioned that WA bar may not allow people with the slightest blemish to even sit in for the bar. The dean will meet with them at the end of the month and than he wants to have a private meeting with me before this month is over.

I now know that it is not my score. I have four friends who were accepted with lower scores than me. I've showed them that I'm capable of doing just as well as the students they let in. I'm very involved in the community and have tons of people on my side. Judges, lawyers and current law students all stood up for me.

Bottom line is that I'm not getting a fair shot right now. But I will live with it. Growing up in the HOOD, sometimes you become a product of your environment. I refused to testify and snitch on some of my childhood friends, which now has created a difficult path for me. That's why I am so active with the youth. It's not always what you do, but your surroundings. But I am a stand up guy and will live with that decision. When the time is right, I will be accepted to a law school. I have a story that the world would love to hear. ....

4/11/09- Accepted to University of San Francisco School of Law! I did not see this coming! I am really interested in USF! I'll be visiting very very soon! I'm ecstatic! All my hard work has paid off! God works miracles! I got accepted a day before Easter! I can't stop smiling...

NEVER give up on your dreams! Chase them and dont let anybody or anything stop you! My cyle started off bad but I have a feeling that things are about to get real interesting....

4/22/09- Still very EXCITED about USF! Things are looking better and better! One of my close friends plays for the 49ers, My youngest cousin just signed a letter of intent to play ball at Cal-Berkeley, and my boys just got traded to the Golden State Warriors a few months back. I'm going to visit USF this weekend for Admitted Students Day. I'm also very excited to see that they climbed up into the top 100. I hear lovely things about the program and about the city. I think USF and the city of San Francisco will provide me with beautiful networking opportunities!

P.S Hoping to get this sports agency opened by next summer :)

4/27/09-Absolute loved USF. The campus, professors, alumni and city were all on point. They swept me off my feet! So many public interest programs and opporunities. If I could sum in this school in one word, it would be DIVERSE. So many faces of color and people from different backgrounds. This school is on the rise and is clearly under ranked. They have a 88 percent bar passage rate, which is the ultimate goal. The city of San Francisco was amazing! I met some really nice alumni and even spoke to the dean. Really tight knit community and I am positive that I will be attending. I am sending in my deposit in today :)

4/30/09-Got a letter from OREGON today. Going under second review and they want me to send them a Why Oregon email! So I'm working on that now...

5/16/09-Rejected at Gonzaga. Didn't really matter..I couldn't see myself in Spokane. Going to check out USF again next week :)

Just finished applying for that San Francisco Bar Association Scholarship!! Wish me luck!!!!

6/25/09-Accepted into U of Oregon...What to do, What to do??? Oregon is higher ranked and a lot more affordable. This is going to be a tough decision.............

Thanks man...really wish the LSAT would've worked out better...but I'm sure I'll end up where I'm supposed to be. Best of luck to you.

Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey....good luck on your cycle..I hear that a good foundation in labor and employment law can be helpful in sports law. You should think about joining BESLA if you get a chance. It provides great networking opportunities.

Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey...I just checked and the Black Sports Agents Association (BSAA) is another organization you may want to look into.

Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

No problem. I was fortunate enough to have so many lawyers help me during the process, so I'm glad to be able to help someone else along the way. Let me know if you need help or advice.

Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

I started off wanting to be a sports agent, but that fizzled. I realized that there is a lot of corruption in the sports agent business and as a lawyer, I'd be at a disadvantage, because I would refuse to sacrifice my license to do something unethical. I looked into other avenues and being general counsel seems interesting. I also took Labor & Employment Law this semester and I loved it. As it turns out, many of the franchise general counsel have a labor & employment background. Plus I'd still get to do contracts. But, real estate law is interesting and very lucrative. Who knows where I'll end up, but right now I am trying to get into the best school possible and make connections along the way.

Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

If your are representing athletes or people in the entertainment industry, having some knowledge of IP law is helpful, especially with rights of publicity. Look into Santa Clara. I'm not applying because I am not a fan of Northern California.

Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

Ya I am a pretty competitive person, but after learning about the O.J. Mayo, Reggie Bush, Leigh Steinberg situation and other horror stories, I decided it didn't really fit my personality. But, it's good that you have a leg up.

Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 07:00 PM

thanks man! good luck to you too! im sure you will do fine. hopefully you get what you want on the dec lsat.

Wednesday, August 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

For the comment! Best of luck to you this cycle - maybe LSAT scores will be release today?? I've added you to my watch list.

Sunday, November 09 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks and the best of luck to you too!

Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

I wish you the best of luck in this cycle. What is your first choice?

Denver Law
Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Denver! Did you apply full time or part time? Were you admitted last year? I know that you will do good things here. Let's keep in touch. In terms of my choice, I am going to play the cycle. We will see what happens.

U of O
Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

What do you think of U of O? Do they take people with below 150 lsats? Do you know anything about their admission policy? I wanted to pick your brain.

Monday, May 12 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the support. I just finished sending off my information for the CLEO program.

Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on the LSAT bump...Hope the New Year is kind to both of us.

Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

I actually really like DePaul and they are definitely in my top 5. They have a great alumni base in Chicago and I would say they are number 4 or 5 in Illinois behind Northwestern Chicago and Illinois (maybe Chicago-Kent). Pretty Good OCI firms that have ties to sports. George Mikan graduated from there.

Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on your score increase! I am quite proud of you.

Wednesday, December 17 2008 at 07:00 PM

good luck on Seattle U and the rest of your cycle. I took the LSAT and got the same score 3 times! it bites.

Friday, October 03 2008 at 08:00 PM

We have similar numbers--best of luck

Thursday, August 28 2008 at 08:00 PM

I wish all the best for your cycle too and I hope you'll get into your #1! Seattle is a really cool city =]

Sunday, November 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Good luck with your cycle, especiialy Seattle, hope you get in!

USF part time
Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

Would you consider part time at USF? I think that you will have a strong shot in their part time program.

Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

I am sooooooo happy that I got a waitlist and that it wasn't a flat out rejection. I feel blessed that I have a chance. Good Luck on your apps, I think the fee waivers are a good sign. Glad to hear you got everything out.

Good luck to you.
Monday, December 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hope you get into Seattle U. Denver the first time around? That's pretty good. Even though it's a long shot for me, I went ahead and applied. You never know, right?

Sunday, May 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

That you so much!!! Your encouraging words mean a lot to me! I wish you the best on your app cycle!!

Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 07:00 PM

the sports law program is really attractive and something im considering. its actually the only reason i applied there. in the package they sent to me, the program helps students get general counsel jobs and internships with professional sports teams

Good Luck
Thursday, August 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

this cycle! Sounds like you're able to focus more on your law school process this time around. Good job on raising your LSAT. I think you'll get some solid schools as well.

Monday, June 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey thanks for stopping by! Good blessings with your cycle. KIT. Simone

Saturday, November 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks, good luck to you too. Hope you get into your #1.

Sunday, September 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks so much for the congrats! Best wishes to you!

Saturday, November 15 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks and good luck to you with this cycle!!

Good luck
Saturday, October 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Good luck!

Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

I think Southwestern is a pretty good school although it has tough competition with the other SoCal law schools. I hear its pretty good for trial lawyers/judges and they have a Entertainment Law Institute, which has produced Execs for major studios. Sports wise Donald Sterling, Clippers owner, Jeffrey Birren, Oakland Raiders GC, and the Tampa Bay Bucs GC are alumni. They are having an entertainment law panel on Feb. 21st. When I get more info...I'll let you know.

Monday, November 24 2008 at 07:00 PM

good luck to you too

Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 07:00 PM

haha ya i dont run a 6.5, im a lot faster than that. i also can a lot more reps than 2. anyways, im just hoping a few more schools will bite but im def expecting some more rejections. im sure you will start hearing back soon. u have no need to worry. it sucks because i see people with a better gpa(like 3.5) and similar lsat getting into top14 schools. its like damn, does football and not having time count for anything?

Monday, December 22 2008 at 07:00 PM

good luck with you too! It seems like your athetlic background will get you places. I'm doing everything I can get to get off the list.

Monday, December 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

hey bro.. i'm with you on the football end.. i'm bankin on admissions offices taking that into consideration too, playin in bcs conferences and tryin to balance school and ec's is damn tough...good luck with your cycle fam

Monday, December 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

appreciate it fam..im doin the sports & entertainment route too..looks like you got them west coast ties, i got alot of people on the east coast so holla

Hey there
Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

A few years ago, I know that you would have been accepted to DePaul. A buddy of mine is a DePaul grad. His scores were very low. I received a denial from Loyola. This hurt man! We will stay in touch my friend. Let's cross our fingers for Seattle.

Monday, May 12 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks again for suggesting the CLEO Program! I just got into it!

hey there
Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

I was admitted into Idaho. I am quite pleased! I am still waiting on Seattle, on Oregon, on Lewis & Clark, and on Southwestern. How is the process going my friend? I just wanted to check in with you.

hi there
Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

I hope that you get into Seattle. I applied part time there. I received an e-mail in December that I was being considered for the Access Program. I thought that I had a strong chance there. I fit their criteria, but ah well. We will stay in touch my friend. Crim

hey there
Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the encouragement. I never thought that I would have received an acceptance from Idaho. It is full time, so I am definitely grateful. The 25th percentile lsat is a 151, and the 75th is a 159. I am not anywhere near those lsat numbers. I am quite grateful my friend. I will keep you in my thoughts. I wish you the best of luck. Idaho showed me that anything is possible man.

Thanks =)
Monday, June 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thank you for stopping by! Howard is great! I actually visited the school a few weeks ago and I loved it! Best wishes with the rest of your cycle. KIT.

Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 07:00 PM

Good luck on your cycle too!

you go!
Wednesday, January 14 2009 at 07:00 PM

i love your spirit! i have a feeling that SU will come thru, u had to wait this long so the decision should lay in ur favor! im rooting for you!

Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks!!! I think I got hot in the 4th quarter and I took over like Steph Curry haha... I am pulling for you to get into Seattle

Sorry to hear that...
Thursday, December 04 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hey man. Yeah I got in through their special program. Sorry to hear you got bad news from Seattle U...don't lose hope though. Go into that meeting with the dean with confidence and you might just turn the tables

hey there
Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

I would love to hear your story man. Would you be willing to share via e-mail? I am sorry to hear about Seattle U. Have you thought about applying to Idaho?

Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

Sorry to hear about Seattle..hopefully your meeting with the Dean goes well at the end of the month. I have a blemish on my record, so there is hope.

waitlist at Wash U
Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

Nicely done my friend! Wow....

So sorry
Wednesday, March 18 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey, I just stumbled across your page. Im so sorry to see that things aren't working out as you planned. But I applaud you for your courage and determination. I hope things get brighter for you in the near future. Keep your head up.

Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey... I am sorry to hear about your situation with Seattle U. I believe God will make a way for you! What neighborhood of Seattle are you in?

Wash U
Thursday, September 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey. First off, I want to say sorry for the rough cycle you've been having but keep up the faith - you'll be where you're supposed to be. Anywho, pertaining to Wash U, speak with Dean Bolin as much as possible and let her know that you really want to attend the school. There are a ton of people who have been put on the waitlist recently so you need to make yourself stand out as much as possible. Write a Letter of Continued Interest and update the school [in writing] on what ever new things are occurring in your life. For example, if you've been admitted into an honor society, have a new letter of reccommendation, etc. Write a "Why I Want To Go To Wash U" essay. Essentially, just let them know that you really want to attend and that you'd be an asset to the school. I think you'll be fine. Good luck!

Sunday, January 11 2009 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on USF! I am sorry to hear about Seattle but at least you have an option now.

Wednesday, March 18 2009 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptance!!!!!

Wednesday, March 18 2009 at 08:00 PM

I'm not too sure yet. I think I'm gonna wait a couple more weeks before I decide anything.

Thursday, September 11 2008 at 08:00 PM


Friday, June 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats again. I left me e-mail...send me a line.

Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 07:00 PM

congrats on usf! i know a few people there, and they say good things about the school. it's in a good location too! i think you will like it.

Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 07:00 PM

Wednesday, January 14 2009 at 07:00 PM

Saturday, November 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on USF. Have you settled on them? I, too did feel the sting of rejection from SU, but I guess it was meant to be.

Monday, December 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

i'm happy about Case.. only a lil over an hour from the crib.. got alumni as GC's at the browns/reds/cavs/indians, IMG, and the CEO of warner bro's is an alumni... just glad to have an acceptance as you now feel..keep me posted in the next few weeks as these cycles start to come to an end.. be easy kin

wish you all the luck
Tuesday, April 14 2009 at 08:00 PM

This is my third time around as well so I can relate! Wish you all the best - I hear San Francisco is awesome - congrats! Were you waitlisted before you sent your LOCI to Seattle?

Tuesday, April 14 2009 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! How long had your file been complete for you sent out your letter? I am considering some out before a decision is made. Def. will keep in touch!

Sunday, October 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hi, It looks like you have led an interesting life thus far, and will have a lot to bring to the table in law school and beyond if you put in the work. Best.

Monday, May 12 2008 at 08:00 PM

I really don't know how to thank you for your advice. It is because of you that my cycle is going so well! I was accepted into IU-Indy. Make sure you keep in touch even when we head off to school!

Tuesday, December 02 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations on USF! We should meet up for sure! I definitely can't wait. The Bay Area is going to be an incredible place to go to school!!

Congrats on the second look by Oregon. I hear that they dominate the legal market in Oregon. But USF is still a great school. Did you still end up talking to the Dean of Seattle?

Congrats. Third time definitely seems to be the charm. And you are obviously focused, so I have no doubt you'll be successful. I am no guru on getting scholarship money, but you might try writing a letter, letting them know that you, like the rest of us, have financial difficulty. But you have to sell yourself. I am hoping for money from Loyola, but if not there are numerous opportunities for 2Ls and 3Ls. I am trying to get my foot in the door with sports franchises, so we will see how that goes. Maybe I can intern for one during the summer.

go to oregon! it's cheaper and it's closer to where you stay at now. bay area does have more athletics opportunities, but oregon has a few players getting drafted every year. it is def a tough decision though. good luck with the decision.

yeah, i was supposed to go to oregon out of high school but couldn't because of grades. i had to go to jc first, then i decided on cal after that. i have a bunch of friends who still play ball there or just finished the last few years. i know a few people on the hoop squad too. it's a nice place. i like the small town feel there, plus athletics are EVERYTHING there! actually, i would have gone to oregon for law school if i was promised a legal job with nike after grad lol. i really wanted to go there. i think it's a good fit for you.
