Rejected from CUNY, awesome, this sucks. Only waitlisted at Hofstra and still waiting to hear back from Touro, I desperately need to stay in Long Island.

-- Saturday April 25, 2009
Received thick white envelope informing me that I have the option to be placed on Hofstra Law's waitinglist. I guess this is better than being rejected.. According to the letter, I will be on the waiting list pool until their orientation which is August 13th. Still waiting on the two remaining New York schools =/... I guess there's nothing else to do at this point than to mail my $400.00 deposit to Widener.

-- Thursday April 9, 2009
Was just accepted to Widener via their status checker available online. PHEW! Still waiting on schools in New York. God bless everyone.

-- Monday April 6, 2009
No word yet from any other schools but I just completed the Fafsa application... Hopefully I have met the deadlines for the schools which I have applied to...

-- Tuesday March 31, 2009
EXTREMELY ANNOYED! Just called CUNY Queens to get a status update on my application. They told me they're still waiting on the paper report from LSDAS, which is complete BS, considering I applied March 1st and subsequently the report was generated a few days following! I have a feeling that is gonna hurt my opportunity of getting accepted cause God only knows how many people they've accepted since my paper report is MIA.

-- Friday March 27, 2009
Received letter from New England Law "regretfully" informing me that they are currently unable to offer me a position however due to my "credentials" the Committee would like the chance to review my application again by placing my name on the waitlist, which I obviously accepted. So frustrating and discouraging, I've only been accepted to Cooley so far, and it's basically like I've been rejected from every school I've applied to thus far because I definitely am not going to cooley. I NEED GOOD NEWS!

-- Monday March 23, 2009
Rejection letter from University of Baltimore School of Law. God damn LSAT! I am in desperate need of getting accepted to a school in NY.

-- Saturday March 21, 2009
Was informed there was a large envelope addressed to me, I was hoping it was any school but Thomas Cooley. Ugh, it was from Thomas Cooley. I was disappointed with the 25% scholarship, despite my low lsat score, I have other things that I thought would somewhat overshadow the horrific results, especially at a school like Thomas Cooley. Anyway, I know it won't be weeks until I hear back from other schools... Still keeping my fingers crossed, praying I'll get into a school in New York.

I hate the LSAT and other standardized tests, and in no way does it predict my ability to perform in law school. Hopefully I get into a school in New York, please, any feedback would be greatly appreciated, good luck to everyone.

If the only school I get into is Thomas Cooley, I will most likely not attend law school.

thank you...good luck with the rest of your applications!!!

Tuesday, February 05 2008 at 07:00 PM

yes, it was 25% of the total tuition. Which seems pretty good. But I'm trying to get into michigan state right now.

Tuesday, September 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

I really, really want to get into CUNY also...but they are so damn slow. I dont want to wait for them while my deadlines for the other schools pass and then get rejected. I dont know what to do yet....not to mention that Case Western is tempting me...I need help!

Monday, March 16 2009 at 08:00 PM

yes, i got the letter today, why?

Friday, February 20 2009 at 07:00 PM

What's so bad about Thomas M. Cooley? At least you are getting scholarship money. You can always go for a year and then transfer. If you tranfer, your LSAT score doesn't carry as much weight... instead your performance for the first year is what is important. On top of all that, you are an under represented minority which helps you in this process if you identify that way.

Thank u

Funny~I saw your lsn name at one point or another and thought to myself, "what a fantastic name..." Def in the same boat. That exam was my nightmare, it haunted me lol Hofstra was a bummer but we'll c what the rest have to say..As for Cooley, least I know I'm in somewhere, rt? Best of luck 2 u :)

thanks&good luck

Maybe i'll b ur classmate @ hofstra. good luck.

Sunday, February 08 2009 at 07:00 PM

don't lose hope! although if this cycle doesn't work out, consider taking the LSAT again. I got a lower LSAT score than you the first time around but took it a 2nd time. def. helped my chances. good luck!

Sunday, February 08 2009 at 07:00 PM

I know most schools required that you submit FAFSA before March 1. I even got a follow up email from schools asking about my missing documents in order to be considered for financial aid, but I told them I didn't need it (or more like I wouldn't be eligble).

Tuesday, March 31 2009 at 08:00 PM

I wish I did apply to more schools. The application fees were very expensive, as expected. However, I was not given a lot of guidance on this. I was also discouraged because of my LSAT score (to be honest). I was under the impression that I would probably not get into the schools I wanted to apply to. Hopefully, I'll get in somewhere...

Thursday, May 29 2008 at 08:00 PM

thanks for the congrats on hofstra. what were ur soft factors that you mentioned in your ps?? i think that had alot to do with my admission. i want to practice public policy. also dont give up on hofstra. their seat deposit is 850 and im sure the people who are holding out for other schools wont fork it up!!! stay faithful!!! by the way i know my numbers and soft factors are making alot of people say WTF!!!!

Just lucky
Wednesday, March 18 2009 at 08:00 PM

Perharps I was just lucky. Don't worry, they will decide on ur application soon, and it will be good news. If you are not crazy about cooley, you may wanna apply to more schools..NYLS is now offering application waiver. Good luck.
