wanting to start law school at either UT or SMU Dedman fall '07

not sure where else I plan on applying to. may end up out of state if scholarship $ is worth it.

ut is a stretch, smu is more likely to come through.
i'm wrapping up a masters there and one of smu's 4 law reviews in the journal of air law & commerce, which may be a good fit for my background. and i know one person with my numbers that got a $15k scholarship to smu.

if i had planned on law school during undergrad, i would have put more effort into improving my gpa and quit one of my jobs.

12/13 held over at UT from ED to reg cycle
1/13 accepted at texas wesleyan (could keep my job and do PT)

1/24 accepted at SMU. for my 'why smu' statement i really focused on my commercial aerospace and military/defense aerospace background and what a good fit i would be for law review (journal of air law & commerce). shameless.

1/29 accepted at university of richmond via phone call at work. spoke with them for about ten minutes. expecting nice scholarship offer (went to hs in VA, joined military from VA, would be fine with moving back to the richmond area with nice scholarship$$)

1/30/07 in at chicago-kent via email

univ denver and uc davis - not bothering to send in the cert letter with app fee, if they wanted me, they'd waive it! i'll hope other places who accept me offer scholarship $$ to fall back on.

2/12/07 acceptance email from u denver. i guess i didn't need to send in the app fee, after all.

2/20/07 $15k per yr scholarship offer from smu. i was hoping for better, but that still looks better than $5k and houston. still waiting on my ut rejection.

2/23/07 email inviting me to fsu's asw. i guess that means i'm accepted. it's on the 30th, and i'll probably go to smu's asw then. probably going to uh's asw next friday.

2/26/07 in at temple. snail mail acceptance packages from temple and denver showed up at the po box. i think i'm gonna have to skip the uh asw this weekend to find an apartment.

4/3/07 went to the smu asd on friday and the texas wesleyan law day on saturday. really enjoyed sitting in on a contracts class at smu, and i think i've decided not to sit out a cycle and to just start this fall at smu.

I'm also applying to SMU, best of luck perhaps we will be classmates this coming fall. And I will squash you. :) /hug

crazy work experience... GL.

No chance at Texas-Austin
Thursday, November 02 2006 at 07:00 PM

Save your money and forget about applying to Texas-Austin because you've got little to no chance of getting in there. Ditto for Boston College and Boston University.

Good luck, jer!! :)

Yeah, well...

I guess I'll see where else I get in before I put the razor to the head. Good luck to you!

LSAT
Thursday, May 25 2006 at 08:00 PM

i hope i rocked it , too, but it seems likely NOT haha because i freakin' froze on an RC passage and spent 15 minutes on it. i don't know what came over me, but i was stuck and stayed there forever. i am retarded!!! 170+ :( i wanted a 170+ :(

Hey!
Sunday, March 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hi Jer! Yeah, Baylor makes me a little nervous. The more I think about SMU, the more I think it might be a good choice. Good luck to you! Hopefully we'll both be attending UT in the fall. *crosses fingers*

Well...
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Your T4 prediction could still be right on a technicality if NYU comes through... But I sooo appreciate your confidence. :) Have a good weekend!

Fee waiver apps
Sunday, October 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Feels good to apply for free, huh? I hope the two apps you had to pay for both bring you a positive return on investment.

held over at UT
Tuesday, May 09 2006 at 08:00 PM

i'm held over at UT from ED to the regular pool of applicants. it's a reach.

UT
Wednesday, October 04 2006 at 08:00 PM

The dream is still alive.

more apps?
Saturday, July 22 2006 at 08:00 PM

what's this i hear about sending off more apps before the holidays? might i suggest some chicago schools?

Well there you are...
Friday, April 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

Good luck on this latest round of apps, soldier!

Why Baylor?
Monday, July 31 2006 at 08:00 PM

Seriously, why do you have them on your list? You know you're never going to Waco unless it's to the DP museum.

talk about awesome
Thursday, February 23 2006 at 07:00 PM

Jer is so great he should go to Princeton Law - they would be lucky to have him. Why didn't you apply? ;)

Congrats!
Sunday, March 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on your first acceptance, Jer. :)

Tx Wes $$$
Sunday, March 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

I was just accepted via email on Friday. How were you notified about the scholarship money?

Good luck!
Monday, June 05 2006 at 08:00 PM

How did I not know you had an LSN account? Anyways, congrats on the first acceptance + $$, and good luck with the rest.

Thanks
Sunday, March 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the info...I got my letter with scholarship info on Friday. Good luck...my brother is an Aggie!

Congrats
Sunday, October 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

on SMU.. still waiting for my call.. hopefully I don't drown in tears :)

SMU
Sunday, September 17 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats. Now we just see if UT happens or not.

6motummyache cannot follow directions.
Tuesday, January 23 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations! I love the SMU campus....had to move away from Dallas about a year ago, but prior to that was really hoping that it would be my home school!

smu
Tuesday, May 09 2006 at 08:00 PM

if smu comes through with good scholarship $$ i could end up there. but i still have some things to work out that would make moving out of state very likely for good scholarship $$

Congrats
Wednesday, December 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

to you too. I knew you'd get in there. My guess for $ offers is three to four weeks? And do you know anything about ASWs? I was accepted over the phone and still haven't received the paper information, so I don't know anything about it. Congrats again.

smu
Tuesday, May 09 2006 at 08:00 PM

i got my phone call from smu via msg on my cell phone, left at 4:04pm wednesday. acceptance package was in the mail thursday, probably because i live in dfw. not sure when the asw is, i'm busy with hw and haven't read through the acceptance mail.

Congrats...
Sunday, March 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

on SMU!

Thanks for the comment
Tuesday, October 31 2006 at 07:00 PM

and also congrats to you on SMU! Good luck on the rest of your cycle!

Holy CRAP!!!!
Sunday, May 14 2006 at 08:00 PM

YAY! I'm so happy for you jer! And I'm certain your dance was fabulous, just fabulous!

Yay!
Friday, April 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

I know I'm a little late, but congratulations again on SMU! Rockin'!

congrats
Wednesday, December 06 2006 at 07:00 PM

thanks! it really is a good feeling to get that monkey off my back. looks like you're doing really well on the admissions front, good luck on the rest of them!

Kent and SMU
Wednesday, October 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on all your acceptances. And especially for your shiny new one at Chicago Kent :)

SMU
Tuesday, December 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the congrats, do you have any idea when they start handing out the $ for SMU? That's going to be a HUGE factor in my decision.

Thanks Mang!
Wednesday, July 05 2006 at 08:00 PM

Ahh.. heaven for a Texan. I still think you've got a good shot- being a veteran with an insane educational background.

Hi Jer
Friday, April 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

Just checking out yours! Still considering Chi or has the cold completely put you off?

!
Friday, April 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks Jer! The funny thing that I don't even consider myself to be fashionable. Maybe it just sounds better on paper. ;-)

SMU
Wednesday, July 26 2006 at 08:00 PM

I think I'll probably end up going to UT. SMU would be a fun school too though

SMU $
Wednesday, October 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

Did you see that someone posted an SMU scholarship? Maybe the wait will soon be over!

sweet
Sunday, December 17 2006 at 07:00 PM

your numbers are an inspiration to my numbers... congrats fellow splitter!

thanks
Wednesday, March 30 2005 at 07:00 PM

I definitely feel you on SMU. They're probably my first choice right now.

too cold?
Monday, May 29 2006 at 08:00 PM

My mom says it's pretty cold in Texas right now, so I don't know about that. If UT doesn't come through, I will probably end up at either SMU or Emory...Atlanta is appealing because it's closer to my GATORS! Is SMU in the lead for you right now (pending all of the $ you will receive from them, of course)?

Re: SMU
Sunday, March 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

Ugggghhh, I don't know what's taking them so long! I getting a little paranoid that they will reject me! :-/ Why is it taking them so long to give you a scholarship?

SMU
Wednesday, October 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey man. A little birdie told me that SMU is starting to hand out $$ -- I'm crossing my figners and my toes for you tonight. Good luck!!

smu scholarship in the mail
Tuesday, May 09 2006 at 08:00 PM

i emailed maggie to make sure they received the sumners scholarship app package before the deadline, and requested an address change. she said they sent out a scholarship offer on monday. wasn't in the mail friday, so i'm gonna drive 45 minutes to check my mail and 45 minutes back. that's how much i'm freaking out knowing it could be sitting there waiting for me. if it's not there, i'll just have to hope it comes in monday and check for it around 10am. at least they sent something...doesn't look like that many people have updated their scholarship info for smu, yet. i'll be a bit disappointed and keep wondering about my ut decision and scholarships to safeties if it's less than $15k :(

Congrats
Thursday, September 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

I know it feels wonderful to have options. Congrats on all your acceptances! I also happen to think you have a good chance of being admitted to UT. Congrats again!

SMU PT $
Wednesday, October 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

I got $2500 a year for the PT program. Looking at last year's info, it seems okay. I hope you got your $15k!

Re:SMU Money
Sunday, September 17 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks. I'll trade you for your UH money...

Excellent!
Wednesday, October 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your SMU $ - finally! Wish they gave out that kind of dough for us PT folks.

Yay, SMU $$
Sunday, October 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Now's the time to go for the kill - turn up the charm and get the rest of that $72K they meant to give you :))

Congrats!
Sunday, February 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on SMU. I work in military defense too! Pratt - Rat here! JSF/F-135 nozzles (enigneer) Hopefully, SMU can sling a few bucks my way. Good luck with UT too!

In the lead
Sunday, February 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

I'm definitely looking at SMU, but baylor gave me some nice cash. I'm also waiting for george mason. Id like to end up at SMU, hopefully they can throw a few bucks my way!

Houston
Sunday, February 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

I should also mention I'm strongly considering Houston. They seem to have a much stronger IP program and things that I, as an engineer, would benefit from.

SMU $$!!
Wednesday, October 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

Yay!!! Congratulations on the SMU money! Yeesh that was long in coming! And you need to think POSITIVELY about UT. It'll help, I promise. Do it. :)

re:baylor
Sunday, February 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

It seems stringent, but it also fair. If they are giving me money to attend, I don't think saying in the top 50% is all that much to ask for. I also don't think I'll have a problem doing so. A number of my engineering friends went to law school. They said it's only rumored to be super-impossible because most came from relatively easy majors. It's just as "hard;" it's just more time consuming. Just what I've heard, for what it's worth.

Kent
Sunday, October 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey I have a good friend in his 2L at Kent...he loves the school and is very involved w/ their moot court team, which is supposedly great. Plus, 60K! That's really amazing.

Thanks....looks like things are shaping up pretty well for you. Good Luck

SMU $
Monday, May 29 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on the SMU $...if they give me any, I might be there to join you. I'm going to visit towards the end of this month

Thanks!
Wednesday, December 20 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the congratulations. Here's sending some your way too. It looks like you've got some great options. Are you leaning towards any one school at this point?

Yes
Wednesday, October 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

Yes, he's leaning towards UT! C'mon UT, show our boy Jer some lovin'!! And show ME some lovin' while you're at it. It's going to be sad not having you this cycle. /just sayin' (lol ;))

SMU visit
Monday, May 29 2006 at 08:00 PM

I an't go to the ASD, so I am going to visit on March 23. Hopefully I will hear about a shcolarhsip by then cuz without $ it would be hard for me to choose SMU. Baylor I am only going to look at to make my dad happy (he's a pilot for a law firm and MOST of the lawyers went to Baylor, so they are pushing for it). I had an issue with my undergrad scholarship one semester because of the credit requirements so the Baylor scholarship requirements don't fool me! I'm sad to hear you are thinking of sitting out a year, but I will defintiely take good notes if I end up at SMU, or by some miracle UT!

Thursday, October 19 2006 at 08:00 PM

I have no idea...but i hope soon, its time to make a decision pretty soon. i might call if i havent heard from them in a week or two

richmond
Thursday, October 19 2006 at 08:00 PM

i just called richmond yesterday to see when they were sending scholarship information and they said next week...so hopefully we'll find out soon! ive decided to go there if i dont get in anywhere else, so maybe ill see you next year!

whoop!
Sunday, March 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

WHOOP! Go Aggies. Good job on SMU scholarship! Your work experience is something else that's awesome

SMU Mascot

I don't even know what the mascot is, jer. It's better than multiple Generals?

Go Mustangs!

I've already joined the group! I think we are already FB friends...

RE: SMU
Tuesday, September 05 2006 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, I'll probably end up there but I'm still waiting to see what UH does. The 34K price tag at SMU kinda gives me pause.

Nope
Wednesday, December 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

Decided on W&L...I need to send in my withdrawal email to SMU and I need to change it on lsn. My senioritis has made me lazy. But my friend Wilson who you met is definitely going next year.
