Good luck to you on your application process! Our numbers are similar. I did take the LSAT again Oct 2010, so we will see if I improved or not.
We have similar numbers, best luck this cycle!
Hi, good luck to you, I anticipate you get in to Nova among others!
I hope we both get into FIU :)
Hello mr you lift heavy weights! lol Congratulations on Ave Maria!!! How good was the early Christmas present?!
Congrats on Ave Maria! Now to hopefully hear good news from the other schools as well!!
I heard back from them about 2 weeks after applying and i did speak to the admissions office about an addendum i had to send, very nice people. i believe it was the standard program because there were no stipulations sent with the acceptance. never been to the area have you? im not sure what its like there but cant be to bad, not to far from south beach. GOODLUCK!
I copied and pasted the exact email that I received from Barry the day after my application status changed to "Further consideration at a later date" Dear Laura, Thank you for your application to Barry University School of Law. We are writing to inform you that the Admissions Committee has thouroughly reviewed your file, and has voted to delay a final decision at this time. We will be in touch with you as soon as new information regarding your status is available. Please contact us as soon as possible if you have changes in your contact information or have additional information that may be pertinent to the committee. Some delayed files may be reviewed for possible admission in the summer Early Start Program. The committee will begin reviewing those files at a later date, but we are unable to pinpoint an exact time frame. If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact us at the email addresses below. I hope this helps you a little bit!
Actually, I was wait listed at MSU, but thanks for the note anyway! I wish you luck with your other apps. I saw you were wait listed at Barry. I will be keeping an eye on you. Good luck!!
Check your FIU status checker, my application went complete on 11/1/10 and yesterday changed from "Ready for Review" to "Under Review." Goodluck!
Thanks, and congrats to you as well! Nothing really beats seeing that "Congratulations!" on the Status Checker page! On FIU, they dinged me last year, but I applied later too. My 148 and UGPA (flawed though it is) really would not make the cut at FIU... but I am hopeful that my earlier application might help. My FIU Status Checker has also gone to "In Review". Another note on FIU - they are slow! Last cycle I had to mail them my $20 check, which they lost, so I hand delivered one to them so it wouldn't... then I got dinged. This year we can pay online, and it appears as though they might, just might, be a little more on the ball about processing. Nova was also slow... the waiting is painful because we all know the first year of law school is going to be hell anyway... yaaay! Thanks again, I'll be watching your profile to see how you score out. Best wishes for much success!
when did you apply/hear from nova last year? thats my 1st choice. I finished my application on 11/1. Someone here has already received an acceptance so they are starting.
hey man we have a lot of the same schools. I got accepted to st.thomas aw well, they didn't send me an email or anything either pretty weird. But i'll be watching your profile. Hopefully Nova will give me an answer soon
Sorry was private,made it visible
Personally, being an old man, I would not consider any sort of conditional or probational program of any sort. I do believe that those who are successful in such programs are very successful in law schools in general, but I won't be spending any money for that sort of thing. What I really want is to see FIU give me the nod for approval. In all seriousness, that alone would be like my passing the Bar Exam.
I appreciate it man. Good luck to you too.
Have you thought about calling the admissions office at Barry? Chances at mercer.. hmm my LSAT isn't that good but hopefully they will like my rec letters and Personal statement. i think its going to be a toss up. As far at Fl coastal being my number one, I really love Jacksonville and its pretty close to home. I knew someone that graduated from there as well and they highly recommended it. He said everyone is really friendly and helpful. I think that my number ones are tied between Fl coastal, John Marshall, Mercer, and Charlotte. I went to visit Charlotte and the school is absolutely awesome. Very Technology Savvy. Have you heard anything else lately from any of the schools you applied to?
It feels good. Since they are only a few miles away (or so), and that they mailed in on the 7th, I thought it would be here today. The funny part is that it is such a small envelope, Cooley sends you a pretty big deal when they accept you. Still, it is very nice to have it for the wall!
hey man my status checker says the same thing Congrats-Accepted. Except I got a letter in the mail as well with a 12,000 dollar scholarship. Which do you think is better St.Thom or Nova?
it took them about six weeks and I think my chances are descent. I'm going to write them a letter telling them that they are my first choice and a bunch of blah blah blah Delete
Hey I'm waiting for my FIU decision too, hopefully we'll be getting good news! Where does FIU rank for you?
Yeah I'm wondering the same thing...I guess we'll see. And FIU is up there for me too, it's good for public interest and it's nice and cheap! Anyway, I don't have any info for seat deposits on my status checker. I'm hoping I get the decision in the mail tomorrow, but we'll see...
Yeah mine doesn't list anything under mailings either. Oh well, hopefully they just forgot to update that.
And I'll be in touch for sure dude! Good luck with FIU and the rest of your schools, what's your 1st choice?
Mine is CUNY, but if that doesn't work out FIU/UDC?FAMU or any place that I could go relatively cheaply would be good. And I'm still waiting for that FIU letter! Tomorrow hopefully, but still nothing under mailings for me.
King-for some reason your profile is private or something, because I can't click on it, hence reply to your question in your profile, so I'll reply here. Mine's in the exact same boat. It's read "In Review" for months now. If anything chances, please let me know. I'll obviously return the favor. -iLiftHeavyWeights
Sophia, again for some reason I can't click on your profile and I don't see you on the graph. Is your profile private? I think you're talking about FIU. Is that correct? If so, can I ask your numbers and the date that you received the letter in the mail? Note: My status checker went to "mailed decision" last Friday and still no letter. Also, does your status checker list a seat deposit fee, etc? Mine just shows the app fee and I'm wodering if this is a tell tale sign or not. Thanks-
Hey man sorry to hear about FIU I got rejected too :(. Keep in touch on FAMU though, I'm hoping for good news there, where does it rank for you?
They sent you a fee waiver? I have a 151/2.7 and I have mailed them over 5 times requesting fee waivers and even waited after my Dec. score for couple days......do you happen to know when they sent you fee waiver and how did they? Not that it matter much now that I applied already, but it does suck that I didn't get a fee waiver. I was also accepted into St. Thomas and hopefully will attend if I get any money from then. Good luck on rest of cycle.
also, on St. Thomas....I have " Congratulations you've been admitted" but I too am not sure if it's the SCP.....does you status checker have on fee's Summer Conditional Fee....by all Fee's it shows 0.00 but I have a section for that and I am wondering if that's because it's the stupid SCP I have been admitted to?
Yeah, it ranks pretty highly for me too. It's supposed to be good for public interest and it's definitely cheap. But what bad things do people say about it? And that sucks that you got all your rejections at once, it just means you'll have a good week of acceptances soon.
Thanks alot, I am sure I was admitted into regular admission too, most people in SCP say....in via status checker SCP so I am hoping. As far as money, I am not sure because some people list money already. I am more than sure I will be in Miami at St. Thomas if Loyola doesn't accept me and even if they do, I maybe still go there because I love the idea of Miami
I haven't really thought much about Nova except for the fact that I intend to apply because of the area. Based on the #'s it seem they are a bit above St. Thomas but not sure 100% which on would be best.
Again, I couldn't click on your profile, so I'll answer here. I got 2 emails, but the scholarship was mentioned in the accepted one too. Then the 2nd was only about the scholarship. Hope that helps.
Nope, not yet. I'd say that you're very ahead of the game there. :)
I've heard nothing from them. The status checker has been the same since I went complete at the beginning of OCT. Based on the graph, everyone seems to be in the same boat.
i checked my status and it said "a decision has been rendered" then you have to open this document with your acceptance letter, they send u an email as well
Conrats on Barry! Where are you leaning to now?
From what I've read, I believe the quality of education between both Barry and FAMU is even. I know that FAMU is behind this year on the admission cycle but FAMU's in-state tuition makes it a clear choice over Barry at least for me. If you don't mind me asking, why are you leaning towards Barry aside from what you posted?
I agree with the tuition reasoning. I do think that Barry hasn't a larger network of alumni, and when you are going to a TTTT (or in FAMU's case, not even TTTT) you need to depend heavily on your alumni network to secure a job. Also, FAMU doesn't seem very disversified. I think that a well rounded education should be from people from all walks of life and ethnic backgrounds. Take a look at their website, do get the feeling that there's many races, cultures, backgrounds? I haven't attended school there, so I can't answer this either. But these are some of my thoughts.
Did you apply Full Time or Part Time at Nova? I wonder how many AAMPLE programs they offer to Part Time students since in the program information it says you should not working during the classes.
I only applied to Nova for FT. I'm not sure if they offer the AAMPLE program for PT or not. You should give them a call. Hope that helps.
^I appreciate the congrats. I probably will not be attending NOVA as they offered me the AAMPLE program. I'm not ready to begin in the Summer, I live quite a ways away, I would have to pay the summer tuition out of pocket, and then I'd have no guarentee of Full Time status after quitting my job and moving. Just doesn't seem feasible to me. Do you a profile on here?
Hi there, I didn't apply to the provisionally approved schools, especially because I have already been accepted to ABA schools. Unless, you plan on settling there for awhile? NC is a beauty. However, Florida is too. ps. Isn't it irritating when you receive a rejection from a school that has sent you several emails and invitations to apply? That's happen to me 3x!
Hola youliftheavyweights lol How are you?! I've been keeping up with your file and congratulations for all your acceptances. I am not even going to bother wasting my twenty dollars applying to FIU. I rather treat you to Chilean hot dogs when you come to Miami. lol I got into Thomas Cooley and Florida Coastal. I hope to hear from them soon. I have talked so much trash about St. Thomas that I can't go there lol. I hope I get accepted into the full time program for NOVA if not I have to consider if doing the conditional program is worth it. I've heard that you take less classes and do not graduate in three years. Please keep me updated me and message me your e-mail so we can be in touch.
So what school's are you leaning towards? Do you think you're still going to apply to more schools? I applied to over 30...I got apply-happy..lol.
My FSU got mailed today as well. I'm guessing a reject since their lowest LSAT is 161... But hey, a girl can dream. Good luck!
Have you been updated at all on your FAMU app? I'm seriously considering them, especially over Barry for tuition and just overall. I am planning on doing public service, so they are the best answer for me.
Yeah, I just went complete and it says 8-10 weeks. My seat deposits are due in about a month... I'm planning transfering to Stetson after my first year. Depending on if I'm in the top 30% and unless I end up liking it there and feel that I have decent job prospects. Because I do want to do criminal law (public sector) Stetson's tuition makes me nervous, but I have some connections within the 6th circuit already and that is where I plan on living, so it would benefit me to graduate from there, since they are a regional school. As far as the minority status is concerned. It doesn't really bother me that much. I didn't feel it a big deal when I went for their openhouse and honestly I couldn't tell it looked to be 50-50 to me. More women as well, which being a woman, makes me feel more comforted. I feel that FAMU would not have as much competitiveness as other schools. Also, I read this article from last month about the parking situation, they now have an agreement with the Amway Arena for students to use their garage. That is like 1/2mile to campus in a bad area and right under a highway overpass. I really don't want to get raped. But what about on raining days with computers and expensive books? Some things to consider?
HAH! Thanks for the safety net. That is pretty rediculous. And schools claim to not look at "ethnicity"... Bunch of BS. I'm going to be attending the accepted students day at Barry on 4/15 and FCSL on 4/1. Are you doing either? I wish the location of the two were flipped. I would rather go to FCSL any day over Barry, but Jacksonville is 4 hours and Orlando is 2. IDK, maybe when I go to both I will be swayed. Hopefully by then as well, FAMU will have gotten back to me... "Hey FAMU, Holla at a white girl with not so great scores!"
I guess just because of the people i have met and their positive experiences with it. Also, they have a high bar passage rate, but I guess if i'm planning on transfering that shouldn't really matter. I am a Bull c/o 09!!
Hey just wondering if your status at Nova ever said "committee review" and if so how long did it take you to get out of that and get accepted. I think Nova might be one of my top choices and the wait is killing me..
Have you heard anything regarding a scholarship from St. Thomas??
Goodluck with your cycle! We have close numbers. Where would you like to attend, ideally?
