Additional info & updates

11/2 So far I have sent 7 applications in to schools. Waiting to
get paid so I can send the rest on in. Still waiting for law
schools to request all my documents from LSAC to make
my file complete. The Process has begun. My applications
included an addendum where I discussed why my gpa was
so low.

11/6 Nine apps in, going through my email trying to apply to all
to schools that offer me fee waivers. next set of apps to
come

11/15 I will apply to 22 schools that is my max.

11/14 Hofstra said they will let me know a decision by 12/15, I
hope I get in. Depaul will inform me 2-3 weeks from
today! I applied to Florida Coastal because the lady kept
on emailing me to apply. She says they are offering me
22,000. scholarship based on my numbers. New York Law
School gave me a choice to do a optional interview which
I will be taking an advantage of.

11/15 I emailed some schools yesterday to get some fee waivers.
So far I got only one from Indiana. Thank God!

11/15 12 Apps In

11/15 Just received emails back from Penn State, Syracuse and
University at Buffalo. Both schools granted my request
for fee waivers. Just saved $210.00 bucks

11/19 Used Law School Predictor, I got so many denials.
However I remain faithful!

11/22 In at Florida Coastal, not much to say about that

11/24 Went to visit Seton Hall yesterday, the law school is so
beautiful. For those of you applying there, they won't be
sending out decisions until January.

11/30 Two more apps to send out and I am done.

12/1 Waitlisted at Depaul via email:(

12/6 Decision Rendered at North Carolina. I guess the decision will come in the mail:)

12/7 I'm going crazy at work. I check the status checkers 8 times a day:( I really hope to hear some good news soon.

12/10 Just received my acceptance letter from North Carolina. I got accepted. 17 more decisions to go. Wish me luck:)

12/12 Admitted at Touro via status checker. I'm so blessed to even get acceptances, at the same time I really would like to get admitted into my top three choices. Keeping my fingers crossed and continuing to be faithful and pray:)

12/16 I went to see if other Hofstra Applicants got admissions and they did so I checked my checker and I have been accepted to Hofstra Law. Today has to be one of the best days considering how far i've come. I'm so blessed and so happy. I might be going to Hofstra whoo hoo!

12/20 Hofstra sent a email congratulating me on my acceptance. Scholarship info will be sent in January. Excited about that. Also got a email from Cardozo Law. I really wanted to apply but I just could not afford it before so it was nice to get fee waiver. I sent my Cardozo application in today. It would be nice to go to Dozo Law because I graduated from Cardozo high school. Wish me luck:)

1/3/12 Rejected at Seton Hall Law;(

1/6/12 Accepted to New York Law School via Status Checker:)

1/12/12 Rejected from Wake Forest Law:(

1/23/12 Accepted to Syrcause today via mail. Accpetance included T-shirt, bumper sticker, housing info and acceptance letter. I wish all schools gave such nice packages. Scholarship info will come in late February.

1/23/12 I asked Hofstra for a increase in aid and they finally responded and they want me to submit scholarships from other institutions so they can re-consider the aid.

1/25/12 Accepted to Rutgers Law Newark via email. Hopefully scholarship and accepted letter will come soon. YAY. DECISIONS DECISIONS:)

1/30/12 So if I go to Rutgers Newark I'll only have to pay 25K per year, can't pass that up. But we shall see

1/30/12 Rejected from Brooklyn Law via status checker:(

RUTGERS OR HOFSTRA?/???????

2/02/12 My journey has ended. I will be attending Rutgers School of Law in Newark, Jersey. I choose this school because it was the best option for me in terms of cost, educational opportunity, ranking and location. After I send my seat deposit in I will withdraw from other schools. I will still be updating the other schools I am waiting for. It has been a bumpy ride but If I can do this so can you. If you guys have any questions for me my email is bratty_60@hotmail.com.

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

Thanks Kess, Good luck to you as well!

Good Luck
Wednesday, September 07 2011 at 08:00 PM

Good Luck with your cycle, we have similar #'s and are applying to some of the same places..

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

Thanks Sdolo, Good luck to you as well. I hope you get in!

Good Luck
Monday, September 26 2011 at 08:00 PM

I will

thank you:)

Hi
Tuesday, August 02 2011 at 08:00 PM

NYLS sent me an e-mail about their interview a few days ago. I'm not going to schedule one though. I honestly have no interest in attending. Hofstra also told me they would let me know by 12/15 the latest. Did you apply there ED? Good luck with your cycle, I'll be watching.

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

No NYLS? The campus is really beautiful.I honestly don't know which school I really want to go to yet. It will be nice to have options though. No I didn't do ED for Hofstra. I applied early so the Director of Admissions said I will get a response 12/15 as well. I just want some decisions already.

Thursday, October 13 2011 at 08:00 PM

that Florida Coastal scholarship is a complete trap. 2.9 GPA you have to maintain as a stipulation, even though the curve is like 2.6 or something. It's crazy.

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

i don't plan on going there anyway. i just applied because the admissions officer kept on pushing me to apply

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

and a 2.9 gpa is not bad at all. I know some schools require one to maintain higher gpa's. I plan on doing very well in law school.

Thursday, October 13 2011 at 08:00 PM

iuk, everyone plans on doing well in law school. but the fact of the matter is, grades are curved. 2.6 median curve is very tough. if it was 3.3 curve, it's different. I wish u luck, and i suggest u use the scholarship FLCL offers to negotiate with other law schools.

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

2.6 is tough? I'm confused

Thursday, October 13 2011 at 08:00 PM

you're confusing undergraduates and law school GPA. You should research. 2.6 median curve means 50th best student out of 100. 2.9 probably means somewhere between 10-20% class rank. either way, you're competing against already accomplished college graduates, some who has graduate degrees, others with significant work experiences, etc. No one goes to law school intending to cruise through or settle for mediocrity. Do some research on GPA median and you'll find out what i'm talking about.

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

Whenever you get a scholarship offer there are stipulations to it. Law Schools are not going to just throw you money to not maintain a certain gpa. I don't need to do research because every school is different and every curve is different. I don't agree with you when you said Florida Coastal scholarship requirement is a strap because it isn't. All the schools require you to maintain a certain gpa or a certain rank in your class and I just don't think it should be considered a strap. This is my opinion.

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

and I never compete with anyone, just myself

Thursday, October 13 2011 at 08:00 PM

Then we'll agree to disagree. There are facts backing that at least Florida Coastal scholarship is a trap, I.E. Attrition rate. Not to mention FLCL is For-Profit school and has no undergraduate to back them up financially.

Thursday, October 13 2011 at 08:00 PM

I know most scholarships has a stipulation. however, some scholarship offers has an easy stip, that's what i'm trying to say. Maintaining a 2.9 GPA while the curve is 2.6...that's a harsh stip, hence why it is a trap.

Thursday, October 13 2011 at 08:00 PM

And i hate to tell you this because more of us should have childlike innocence (this isn't meant to be an insult so please don't take it like that), but when you're in law school, you're definitely competing with others. You might do well, but if there are far more students who's work is superior, then your grades will go down. It's not the quality of your work itself, it's how your work ranks against other students. That's why undergraduate GPA or law school GPA is different. Everything is curved in law school.

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

Thanks Jennifer. Yes, I received the decision via the status checker

Monday, August 22 2011 at 08:00 PM

good luck! and f the predictor.

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

LOL thanks I will

IU-Bloomington
Saturday, November 05 2011 at 08:00 PM

I saw that you applied to IU-Indy. I graduated from IU-Bloomington. It is by far one of, if not the most beautiful campuses in the US, with a good law program as well. With that being said, I think you should apply there. Best of luck with the app process!!

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

thank you, I will look into the school

Central
Wednesday, July 13 2011 at 08:00 PM

How long was your status Complete and In Review at NCCU? I have pretty good numbers for there and its actually my top choice and its been that way since 10/31 and I'm getting anxious. My status date changed on 11/15 but my status is still the same

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

Its been complete and in review since Nov 8

Thursday, October 13 2011 at 08:00 PM

i found out via status checker. i might have pissed them off when i said "please don't hold off my application even though I have registered for the Feb 2012 LSAT". They probably thought I was obnoxious. I just wanted to test out how "strong" rest of my app was and didnt have any desire to attend there. So I guess I was a bit obnoxious lol.

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

Well, everything happens for a reason so you will go the school you were meant to go to. Good Luck:)

CONGRATS on getting into one of your top schools!! :)

Thanks
Tuesday, August 02 2011 at 08:00 PM

Congrats to you too!! Are you planning on accepting their invite to study law there?

Tuesday, April 19 2011 at 08:00 PM

unrealistic dream school= cardozo, fordham, or usc realistically...out of the schools I may be eligible for...I'd probably have to wait and see, depends on the money I can get :) what about you, what's your first choice?

=.=
Tuesday, April 19 2011 at 08:00 PM

ahhh, I'm sorry! I just realized I posted on your wall instead of someone elses' (in regards to my top schools...) and I noticed you posted your top 3 schools in the info section... (sorry again!) good luck and hope you hear great news from them! :)

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

It's cool

Saturday, October 29 2011 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on NCCU!

Hi there, I see a few comments about the online interview for NYLS...did you do one??

Monday, October 24 2011 at 08:00 PM

The RU-N scholarship came in the e-mail originally.

Decision
Tuesday, August 02 2005 at 08:00 PM

Why have you made your decision so soon? Did you not like the remaining schools that you're waiting to hear from?

Sunday, October 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

I decided early because out of all the schools left I only want to go to Cardozo and even if I get into Cardozo the scholarship won't be as good as the tuition I will pay at Rutgers.
