Additional info & updates

Five years of work (35-60hrs/week) with nonprofit law firm specializing in post-conviction representation in cases involving capital punishment. Personally witnessed and was heavily involved in securing three exonerations.

- December 26, 2006 - Thrilled! Received first acceptance letter in deceptively small white envelope from John Marshall Law School indicating I am awarded a Deans Scholarship$14,000/year contingent upon remainder in top 20% of class.

- January 11, 2007 - Message from Dean of Roger Williams requesting a return phone call.

- January 16, 2007 - Elated - Admitted into RWU Honors Program, Receive 1/2 Tuition Presidential Scholarship, and 1/2 Tuition Public Interest Scholarship; together constitute full scholarship. Begin planning visit to RI.

- January 19, 2007 - Two small white envelopes, two wonderful admissions letters; Washburn and Texas Wesleyan. Wesleyan's letter indicated I would be notified of Scholarships.

- January 22, 2007 - Received small envelope from Washburn offering a $13,000/year scholarship and yet another exciting wrinkle in the ever more complexifying set of decisions I will be making concerning my education.

- Feb. 5, 2007 - Email from Dean of Chicago Kent - will recieve acceptance letter by mail soon.

- Feb. 7, 2007 - Letter Recv'd from Kent offering $15,000/year scholarship contingent upon 3.25 GPA.

- Feb. 13, 2007 - Snowy day in KC, MO. Withdraw letters go out. Roger Williams was a tough one for me to write. Six months ago I could not have imagined myself turning down what amounted to a full tuition scholarship . . .

- March 5, 2007 - Nixed by NIU. Weird, at least by the numbers, but inconsequential. Also received Public Interest scholarship invite from Chicago Bar Association, via Chicago Kent.

- March 29, 2007 - seat deposit to Washburn!!!!

capital defense

If you are interested in continuing your career in capital appeals, you might consider W&L. They have an excellent clinical oppurtunity called the Virginia Capital Case Clearinghouse. I met an alum recently in Charlottesville, VA who participated in this clinic and is now doing capital appeals litigation exclusively. It may be a bit of a reach for you, but may also be worth consideration nonetheless if the geographic area and other factors are not unsuitable for you...

I went to UMC - I didn't apply there in part b/c I didn't know where on earth law students there wound up practicing... ? But they had a good ranking, etc... Are you considering moving to chicago? Congrats on Kent - they're really the "best" in Chicago that's not Northwestern or U of C - and their same recognition will improve with time... I've met more associates at my firm (a large one at that) from there than any other school tbh.

So where areyou going?
Friday, December 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

I am pretty certain I am headed to UMKC - full tuition, books, plus more in a great scholarship, and as a married gal with kids I know I have to stay close to home for school so it is a great fit for me. I don't envy you the choice though - and I hate turning down KU - maybe they'll give you my space??

WTF? The Fuzz? I don't know who you've been talking to, but I vehemently deny that accusation. Okay, maybe I'm a severe boner and not realizing who you are. Email me, doooooosh. By the way, it's just a beefy station wagon, not an SUV.

Hey -- I just noticed on someones wall that you were 99% sure you were going to Washburn. I also saw you went to undergrad at UMKC. I am down to deciding between those two schools. I am having a really tough decision but I went to a student day at Washburn and didn't feel like I got as much there as I did at UMKC when I went to class with a student. I am just having a really hard time deciding and thought you might have a good insight on the two schools and why you were choosing Washburn. Get back at me. Thanks, Jenn

Just in case someone else hasn't said it, you were very smart to turn down Chicago-Kent. First of all, it's almost impossible to stay at the top of the class; especially in the day division. Secondly, the curve outright SUCKS. certainly made the right decision to turn the school down. Have fun at Washburn. And I'm a firm believer that money doesn't mean anything, nor do rankings. You should go whereever is going to be best for you, which is what you did. Good for you.

It's not only me

that's getting the spam ads, except I'm getting the cock pill ads. You lucky dog you.

Hey, I was just browsing some LSNs from last cycle and I saw you are going to Washburn. I am accepted there this year with a $39,000 scholarship over 3 years, so I'm really considering it... what do you think of the school? Are you happy there? What are students like??
