hey i'm preparing by taking alot of prep tests and going through the powerscore bibles thoroughly, they are incredibile i'm score 166-168 can you believe that!! but anyway i've heard alot of horror stories about the prep courses,powerscore are the best i've heard, you can still take the feb test (tho its extremely too late now) and ask the schools to wait till the scores are realease,even schools who said they wont take it,i've dont this to harvard, i hate to see your gpa go to waste ): i wish we had communicated earlier, i'll be praying for you! ps send G-Town an addendum they'll consider you
thanks for the shout-out. good luck with the rest of your cycle!
COngrats on American! I don't think I am going to St. Thomas. It's a big gamble. Are you considering it? Hopefully, American will accept you!! I'm dying to hear back from all my schools already. I hate this waiting game.
Hi there! We have similar numbers here. I wish you the best of luck in this process.
Thanks for the well wishes and best of luck to you as well. I just received my acceptance letter to FAMU this afternoon!
Keep the faith! Most of my choices for law school are long shots, but I am truly hoping as well that the schools will do what they claim they do..really look at the application without being blinded by the one "number". I hope you get into American and if not then some other law school will find themselves privileged to have you in their class. Again good luck!
I am really grateful for how my cycle has gone so far, although, there are still a number of school left to hear from. To answer your question, no I have not decided where I'm going to go yet, but I will be deciding next month.
No, I didn't apply to CLEO; I might have if this cycle had not turned out the way it has for me so far (which I was far from ever expecting). I support your recent round of apps. But I'm confident that you'll start getting some responses. Have u checked on the status of the apps u haven't heard from?
How are you doing? Congrats on the waitlist at American.
Congrats on your acceptance. I personally know it feels great. Nothing feels better than knowing that you're going! I wish you great success!
Nicely done on Loyola NO!!! Is this for the full time or for the part time program?
good job on Loyola! i cant believe u were pulled off of the waitlist so fast! def gives me hope :)
Good job on Loyola.
Thank you! I'm starting to really warm up to Florida Coastal. I think that the environment will be more "part time" friendly. The scholarship sure didn't hurt either. Everyone I've spoken with is so nice. They even have a relocation specialist that's helping us search for housing. I'm unsure as to what Miami will do, and I'm even more certain that they aren't going to throw any scholarship money my way. I don't want to jinx it however. Only time will tell. Congratulations on Loyola!!! Have you heard from CLEO? I'm attending their Attitude is Essential program this summer. Are you?
Congrats about Loyola! Yea it is the diversity grant. Have you gone for a visit? I went the day before Mardi Gras (not a smart idea) and was not that impressed...are you going to the Open House? OO Good luck with American, I really want to go there!
Thanks for the pep talk. I think I'm just going to re apply next year rather than transfer. I think if I work hard over summer I can pick up my LSAT score. I bought the Powerscore Logic Games Bible - I hear it's the best so hopefully it will help my weak point! Good luck to you too!!
Thanks for the motivational comments. And congrats on your acceptances. I'm getting anxious; the waiting is the hardest part. I will def take your advice and reach out to Loyola.
Congrats on Loyola! New Orleans is a great city! :D
Thanks for the support and congratulations to you on Loyola! I have no idea on where I am going so it gets really tough for me next month!
hey man thanks for your comment, yea i really hope i get into one of the three New York schools I applied to. The reason why I didn't apply to Pace was because I was a day late on the deadline, and as for as the other schools, I thought it would have been a waste of time and money because of my low lsat score. I only applied to cooley as a safety incase I don't get accepted to any other school, but now I hear that it's difficult, if not impossible to even transfer after your first year at cooley. So yea, hopefully I get into cuny or touro which are both tier 4 schools, maybe even Hofstra (tier 3) if i'm really lucky.
I just noticed that you were waitlisted at American University, that's crazy.. really hard school to get into, but that's some motivation right there. Good Luck!
Thanks for your encouragement, i love that i have cheerleaders out there who are in the same boat!!! I hated that LSAT it sucked and i upped my score 10 points after taking it again. so i was in same position as you last year and got all rejections. It was traumatic. BUt you and I are going to law school no matter what. Hopefully FIU will consider you too. Are you p/t or f/t? someone on LSN got called and they asked her if she would be part time cuz of her lower lsat. i guess they use different stats for part time.
... on getting closer to making a final decision! I might also be attending Phoenix School of Law, although I am holding out hope that ASU will accept me. I just don't know; I have been waiting for them SO LONG. Good luck on the rest of your apps!
Yes indeed. I had followed a link to your profile from another page. Sorry about that.
I think I'm going to reserve a spot at NCCU, because I'd be happy to go there, but I still want my other decisions though.
I love your spirit, and that you went for "reach" schools! The ones that WL'd you saw something! Congrats on American!! I REALLY wanted to go there, but can't win them all! I wish you luck with the rest of your cycle!! We should definitely connect. When did you graduate? I'm c/o 08. Keep me posted on where you ultimately decide to go. It looks like Loyola right? Anywho, thanks for the congrats with Florida Coastal :), I am going to send them my deposit since it is due April 15th, but I am also sending Hofstra an addendum, that could help. We will see!
Thanks so much for the words of encouragement!! I'm really hoping that I get into SU! Congrats on Loyola! Once again, thanks for the support!
Hey there! I see that you're pretty much leaning towards Loyola! I am stuck between choosing Stetson or Loyola. I sent in my 1st deposit already...I mean hey...they are giving money :-) However, so far I like what I am hearing about Stetson too. Anywho...are you attending their Open House in April?
Right now...I'm not sure what I am going to do. Maybe I'll see you there! I saw in one of your wall comments that you went to Spellman...I went to Howard! :-) Well from one fellow HBCUer to another...hope to see you there! :-) Congrats again! (I do believe Loyola does offer tuition assistance to 2L and 3L students based on grades though...hope it helps :-)
....on your acceptance to Loyola. You are really having a good cycle. As for CLEO, I would encourage you to contact Loyola or one of your other schools to see if they will nominate you. I would encourage you to be a bit more persistent because I really believe CLEO can benefit you.
I am still waiting for the rest. Anything is possible. However, Idaho is looking like a solid option. We shall see. What are you leaning towards?
@ your March 30th post... dear Spelman lol... you have to take what you can get! I'm excited for you. Law School here we come! :)
Hey there, thanks for the congrats, I will take all of the congrats I can get! :) Good job to you too, for getting accepted into Loyola, that is a great school!! At this time Hamline is definitely my top choice and I was very very excited when they called me. I still have some schools yet to hear from but I don't know if I will get accepted into a better school than Hamline. I see you have applied there as well. Have you expressed interest in the Founders Enrollment Program? I saw on that you were wanting suggestions for preparing for law school... I have actually enrolled in the Law Preview program for June 22-27th in Atlanta! That would be perfect for you, considering you are already there! The only bad thing is that the class is a thousand bucks to enroll, but I think they offer some kind of payment plan or loans if you are not able to pay upfront. Me, I just charged my credit card. Now I'm working to try to pay it off pretty quickly. Would be so cool if we could take the Law Preview class together! I am like you, I want to be as prepared as possible so that when I get into school I know exactly what to do and what to expect.
Thanks for the tip on the book, I will look for it! Your message inspired me to e-mail the admissions rep at Hamline and ask if they think that Law Preview is a good idea. After all, it is a large amount of money like you said... Hopefully I will hear back from them soon. But in the meantime, I will look for that book!
International Law. I originally wanted to do Entertainment Law, and I connected with one out there who gave me a lot of tips, but it is such a cut-throat industry to get into. We will see how the chips fall down the line. :) I just know I want to deal mainly with contracts and travel. How about you?
Congrats to you and Vermont! What a lovely scholarship package you have!!! I'm going to visit USF next weekend!!! I've heard nothing but great things about USF! I'm so excited!! I'll keep you posted my friend!
That scholarship is FABULOUS!!!! I love the comment about the lsat! I gave it the middle finger long ago! :-) I wish you all the best. We'll both be leaving the Atlanta traffic behind. Hopefully we'll run into each other. Please keep in touch and let me know how you're doing up there! mzshaw
Nice job on Vermont.
However, congrats are due to you also. Especially for you getting all of that scholarship money! You will love Vermont Law, my Frat Brother went there and they loved him. He even spoke at commencement, he may have also finished top of the class (but don't quote me on that last part). Anyways, he is an ADA now in Savannah so I hope your experience there is great also!
Also, I clearly have been slipping on keeping up with your profile. Who talked to you about doing Attitude is Essential (AIE)? Was it Ms. Williams (Director of Admissions for CLEO)? I ask because I talked to her about CLEO and after that conversation, I'm probably going to do ICLEO instead of CLEO and do the AIE Program in CLEOs place. Also, how much is the AIE deposit?
Congrats on UDM. Are you considering it?
Yea, he was some kind of legend up there. In fact, he wanted me to go there also (especially last year with my horrible cycle)! He even told me he could probably line me up some scholarship money (he is supposed to be tight with admissions). However, there was NO WAY I was going all the way up to Vermont for law school! Lol!Anyways, ironically, we will not meet if you do AIE. Due to ICLEO, I must do AIE in Los Angeles!
Hey I appreciate your comments. I was excited that Akron accepted me, but I have decided to take a year off. My wife wants to go to law school as well so i am letting her get her first year out of the way while I concentrate on retaking the LSAT. This way maybe I can get into either a better school or at least get some money..lol. Congrats on Vermont!! I am curious though being from Georgia what made you decide to go that far up north? Thanks and best wishes in your future law career.
I will be attending AIE in Atlanta. See you there!
Vermont is final decision, eh? Did you secure housing? I wish you the best of luck. Vermont is a good school. :)
Sorry I am getting back to you so late. What I have learned from this process is that law schools understand the bureaucratic hypocrisy they promote by giving such high weight to LSAT scores. The problem is that unfortunately we ask them to do it. Because we place USNews rankings and other such lists as our measuring sticks for defining a good law school we perpetuate the cycle for them to have to use some sort of impersonal criteria on which to judge people. This is the LSAT. It is interesting because the main point of the logical reasoning questions is to never assume you know something unless you have the facts...but law schools have to brush this dogma under the table so to speak when it comes to assuming that someone with a 160 score will do better in law school than someone with a 147. In the end it does not matter. You have gotten into law school and regardless of what school it is you have shown through your tenacity and will that you already have the skills to be a better lawyer than most Harvard grads, who are honestly nothing more than a number to their admissions staff. My final advice to those who have low LSAT scores, understand this: you will not get into the law school you want, but you will get into the law school that wants you..and I think that is the most important thing for someone who wants to be successful.
i was at AIE in Atlanta, were you there too??
I thought it was awesome, it was everything else than what I expected it would be. :) kinda like a crash course for what will be our lives in three weeks. Vermont, WOW Good luck :)
Hey, I hope all is well. I would love to know how your first year at Vermont Law is going? How is the work load? How is it the environment for you as a black female? Thank you in advance for getting back to me.
Hey there- I am seriously considering VLS, so I have basically the very same questions as environ25 about how your first year is going, the weather, and the complete desolation of VT. (You are from DC) I got into American, but my passion is environmental law... any advice would help- thanks!
We are almost identical in number,good luck!!!!
