Additional info & updates

I guess taking a bunch of classes in accounting and science were ill advised since that was definately not what I wanted to do and they have lowered my GPA immensly. lol all of my sociology, criminal justice and legal (paralegal) classes were B's and a few A's. Wondering if I should take another class as well as retake the LSAT(already registered for the October 2012), Any thoughts?

7-18-12 Retaking LSAT in October.

11-2-12 started applying to schools, hoping my past paralegal work and personal interaction with family law will give that little extra push if their on the fence about me.

11-9-12 status checkers:
Thomas Cooley- decision rendered - letter mailed
Capital University- decision rendered - letter mailed
Figure these are rejections
Phoenix- in review
Brooklyn- ready for review
Florida Coastal-just opened today ( no status)
Barry- wait listed

11-23-12 this waiting is killing me. I also have another 8 schools to apply to, not looking forward to anymore addenda papers.

11-26-12 applied to famu got status checker info same day. Still nothing from Appalachian to say if they received or not sent on the 19th.

12-03-12 *Updates*
Appalachian - email response that they have received application and not using status checker this year.
Brooklyn- still ready for review
Applied to 3 more schools since 11-26
All other apps in reivew

12-7-12 received an email from Barry that says they have decided to delay a final decision at this time. So is this there nice way of saying forget it?

Received a packet in the mail to apply at golden gate university, the lsat and gpa they provided as 25th percentile was lower than listed on here so don't be afraid to put an application in just because of the stats given.

12/16/12 checked status checker for charlotte law and it shows a mailing on 12/13/12 but there's no description, anyone get this? I also didn't get any emails that day and my file still shows in review.

12/21/12 spoke with admissions office of charlotte. Was asked if I was open to applying for spring term, scholarship and relocation (help) monies available. Really have to think about this one. :)

12/22/12 status checker for phoenix- denied. Not the best news for Christmas but atleast it's a decision.

1/8/13 Denied at Brooklyn (no surprise there), FAMU file finally completed but email says 8-12 weeks for a decision. Not sure I can wait that long. Sent email to appalachain to get status update.

1/14/13 in review at Nova Southeastern, application filled out for Savannah law school ( branch of Atlantas John Marshall)

1/25/13 complete and ready for review at Atlanta John Marshall, savannah campus, charleston school of law, still waiting on file to go to admissions director at florida coastal. These files still in review are ridiculous.

1/28/13 Seriously Charlotte? Checked status online this morning and Accepted for AAMPLE. No thank you.

1/29/13 just got the call in at Appalachian.

2/4/13 2:33am just checked status checker and Atlanta John Marshall and savannah campus both have decision made, made by email on 2/3/13. Checked email and do not see any decisions. Now how am I supposed to sleep?
Received emails finally, not making a decision at this time, not waitlisted.

2/6/13 WVU Law status changed from in review 11/30/12 to In review 2/6/13. Guess a decision will be coming soon.

2/8/12 rejected at WVU, no surprise. Current status date for FAMU changed from 1/9/13 to 2/8/13 but no current status change.

2/11/13 Accepted at Savannah school of law(branch campus of Atlanta John Marshall).

2/14/13 Rejected at Ohio State Moritz. No surprise.

2/20/13 conditional admit at st. Thomas-Miami

2/22/13 file is back in review at Barry(prays please)

3/7/13 received an email from Ohio northern in response to me making sure they received all my info. States my file is complete and to check back in several weeks for a decision...ummm seriously?
Checked status checker and woohoo in at Barry. So happy right now.

3/17/13 received a letter from savannah law school offering me a $20,000 a year scholarship with 2.9 stipulation. Wow. If only they already had their ABA. Spoke with someone at Atlantas John Marshall who advised that savannah should have their ABA next fall. I can't go on a hope. :( I wish one of my others schools offered e that.

3/28/13 received an email from phoenix school of law congratulating me again on my acceptance and providing links to pay my seat deposit? Lol ummm, I was denied there.
Received an email from Altlantas John Marshall welcoming me, talking about externships and saying can't wait to see me in the fall...I don't have a decision there yet. I called to make sure still holding.

4-18-13 Received small white envelope with rejection from Ohio Northern.

4-19-13 received a call from Dean at Charleston School of Law offering me Part-time seat with waitlist option for full-time program.

URM bump is when you are black/mexican/native american, you can be accepted at a lower standard, basically like affirmative action, welfare, or handouts

Wednesday, November 07 2012 at 07:00 PM

I was notified by email first, I later checked the status checker and it also was updated with my decision.

Tuesday, July 10 2012 at 08:00 PM

The one in Tampa.

Thursday, November 08 2012 at 07:00 PM

They are definitely not saying forget it! If they were, you would have been rejected. A WL is better than a reject, and it means there is still a chance that you will get in. Good Luck! I really hope that things turn out good for you.

Wednesday, November 07 2012 at 07:00 PM

wow that is awesome news about Golden Gate, I wanted to apply but really feel discouraged because my score is horrible...and I hope you receive good news from Charlotte! Which schools are your top choices?

Golden gate
Tuesday, July 10 2012 at 08:00 PM

I don't think I'm applying, it's a little to far removed from everyone and everything we know. Lol. My top 3 right now are phoenix, famu and charlotte.

Wednesday, November 07 2012 at 07:00 PM

Sorry I have no idea why my post says anonymous

North Carolina Central
Thursday, November 08 2012 at 07:00 PM

I noticed you where interested in Charlotte. Have you thought about North Carolina Central? They have super low tuition from what I hear and are fairly relaxed on admission! I still have you on my watch list, and am still pulling for you, Good Luck!

North Carolina Central
Tuesday, July 10 2012 at 08:00 PM

Thanks I'll look into that.

Sunday, October 07 2012 at 08:00 PM

You should get prepared for some good news and I agree that NC Central is worth a good look from you. Best of luck!

Wednesday, November 07 2012 at 07:00 PM

Did Phoenix invite you to their AAMPLE program? Are you considering Charlotte's offer?

Tuesday, July 10 2012 at 08:00 PM

All the status checker said was your application has been denied. Doesn't show a mailing or anything. As for charlotte I don't think I can. It's too short notice.

re: Samford
Wednesday, December 05 2012 at 07:00 PM

via Status Checker. It said "Admitted - Decision Letter Mailed." Good luck to you.

Don't give up!!
Wednesday, November 07 2012 at 07:00 PM

So sorry to hear about Florida Costal...remain hopeful :-)

Thursday, November 08 2012 at 07:00 PM

Very glad to hear about ASL! I wish you all the best. Congratulations.

Tuesday, September 11 2012 at 08:00 PM

That's exactly how I felt about Nova. They rejected me for regular admissions, but accepted me for AAMPLE... uhm, no thank you!

Re: John Marshall-Atlanta
Wednesday, May 16 2012 at 08:00 PM

Thanks!! I heard back via email and regular mail with a scholarship offer. With FSU, I've heard they take forever to respond and I don't expect to get in anyway so I haven't contacted them. Good luck!
