If you don't mind me asking why did DePaul say they rejected you (if they gave any reason at all).
I have a fee wavier through the LSAC, meaning I didn't have to pay for the LSAT, the LSDAS service, etc. So I called John Marshall and asked how can I qualify for a fee waiver and they told me to mail my approval letter from the LSAC and so I did. I don't know if my app is complete so I don't know how far it will go but their admission office told me that was all I needed. I kinda got depress when I seen DePaul rejected you, because my score is way worse then yours and they are my top choice. But I am praying for you on Marshall. I am almost sure you be ok. Do you live in Chicago as well?
Thank you for your kind words as well. Call John Marshall Admissions Office and ask them about the fee waiver. Its always best to hear from the horse's mouth, itself.
I applied for Fall 2009. Good luck!
Thanks for the comment, I'm really excited. Best of luck to you!
Hey, if you are willing to go to Cooley, what about trying Southern IL and Northern IL. Their tutition rates are cheap as ever (because they are State Schools) and for Northern your commute is only about an hour and the half if that (only if you wanted to stay close to the city.) Check it out and let me know what you think of the two.
Oh but I still think your shot at JMLS is very promising (I just wanted to add)
...still no word?
Thank you so much for your support. I am going to do all what you suggest. I still have my fingers crossed for you as well. One other thing, why not Chicago-Kent?
If you are able to get a fee waiver to these schools (Kent & Loyola) I think you should try them. Law schools can be so unpredictable with their admissions process from time to time.
They reconsidered me for the Spring and decided I was only good enough for a 1/2 tuition summer-starting scholarship. Adcoms are so strange..
Saw the decision went out today. Good luck, I'm pulling for you!
I am nervously waiting the JM reply too! I applied for the Jan 09 as well as you did. Do you recommend I call to check the status of my application? Good luck!
Congratulations! I know it may not be exactly what you were expecting, but that's not always a bad thing, right? Besides, I hear JMLS is very, very liberal about transferring from one division to another.
Hooray, you are in at law school and you get to stay in Chicago. Please look at it in a more positive way. You can always change divisions. "My girl is in law school and she gets to stay in Chicago", woo hoo:-).!!! Smile, girl.
thank you, congrats on your acceptance to JMLS as well! I do plan to attend.
I did, did you.
full time day, starting on the 20th
Hey, I had a question and it's kind of intrusive, so if you don't want to share that's fine. But I noticed that we have the same numbers, 151 LSAT and my GPA is 3.54 and you got rejected from Washburn? That makes me really nervous because I've applied there and it was my backup plan to UMKC. I've been waitlisted at UMKC and thought I would for-sure get into Washburn. Do you have any idea why you weren't accepted? Thanks
Hello, I was accepted into the fall full-time program at John Marshall. I was wondering if you could tell me a little bit about the school and surrounding area. Does it seem too expensive in the long run (tuition + room/board) Also, how difficult was it to find an apt. if living in Chicago??
Hey i got got in to your school, and wanted to see how you like it and what you think the job offers will be like. I live in NYC and got in to two tier 3 schools, but john marshall sounded pretty good. Look forward in hearing from you.
hey, I just got accepted to jmls pt for the fall. Would love your imput. got 24000 for the 4 years. I got i at a tier 3 school, but the $$aid they will give me is more and was wondering about the job prospects at Marshall. What do you think in terms of salary and options. Really need help with this:)
Thanks! 'Twas for the Spring 09 semester, though I've withdrawn and decided to try for next fall. Best of luck!
