11/09 Acceptance to Miami, small envelope

I recommend visiting schools very strongly, you can't get a feel for the environment unless you go there personally.

11/19 Acceptance to Ohio State!! Unexpected phonecall at work! amazing news!

11/27/07 Interview at Georgetown --maybe to decide whether to reject me or put me on the waiting list?? not really sure why I got one...but I considered it my only chance at even being on the waiting list so I went prepared...and I believe it went well.

12/03/07 Status at Georgetown changed to DECISION
I wonder how long it will take to get here!

12/06/07 In at Loyola Chicago via phonecall from Dean at around 12:30!!! yay!

I have you on my watchlist because we have similar stats and applying to some of the same schools. Have any of the schools already requested your packet from lsac?

Good Question
Monday, October 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

I don't have a real #1. Obviously, I would love to go to a top school where just by going there you will get a great job. At this point it really depends on who will give me the most money, including in the financial aid package. The truth is a lot of these schools aren't worth the investment unless you go there for free or really discounted. I am open to go anywhere basically.

Minority Status
Friday, August 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

Unfortunately, I dont think we are considered a minority in terms of AA. However, I wouldn't worry... it must count for something that were not the traditional applicant, especially since we have good extracurriculars. Good luck... :) btw, i applied ED to American!

How long was your "miision statement" essay? I wrote mine yesterday mine is a little over 1 page double spaced. they didn't specify right?

Minority Status
Sunday, October 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

Done some reading on minority status with regards to law schools, and from the very little of what I have read, I believe that A) people of Middle Eastern decent are a minority (Asian I believe), but B) Asians are not an underrepresented minority group in the legal field. I have even read some material which seems to suggest that Asians are even at a disadvantage and adversely discriminated against in the admission process. Seems that Asians are overrepresented at many law schools. Though I bet a solid case could be made that your actually African American, as Egypt is located in Africa.

Congrats!

Congrats on OSU. Good luck on the rest!

GULC interview
Thursday, October 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

I have heard it's because they want to find out more about you. I interviewed with an alumna, but actually live in DC. The alumna and I talked more about the practice than the study of law, so we'll see how that pans out. My theory is they were on the fence about admitting me full time, and wanted to gauge my interest in going part time. We'll see.

Congrats on Ohio State! We have identical numbers so I am hoping that my soft factors give me a boost too! Just curious to know if there is anything special to add to my application that may give it an extra boost and hopefully a few acceptances. Thanks and good luck!

congrats on OSU

congrats on Ohio State. can I pls ask you something. Did you ask for the interview at georgetown? and was it over the phone? what kind of questions did they ask?.

Loyola

Does attending law school at La bother anyone else but me? Not sure if this is sheer ignorance, but doesn't Louisana rely more than any other state on the Code Law System, as opposed to the Common Law system? I know according to the constitution all courts are made inferior to the Supreme Court and their rulings, but has any one else wondered about the possible differences when studying for the bar in their own home state? If nothing else ppl in La live in parishes, and that just about summarizes my knowledge of the legal system in La, but again remember, I proclaimed my at the onset of this message. So humm, anyone have any thoughts on this matter??

If you go to LSU you get a JD just like everybody else but you also get another professional degree in civil law (or as you have more appropriately referred to as code law). I was worried about this for a while but then realized that if you get a JD you're good to go anywhere and to be honest studying for the bar isn't really what you learn in school (this is my understanding from practicing attorneys I have talked with). Hope that helps.

LSU
Sunday, October 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yeah I did alittle research into this and discovered that like all other schools in the country schools in La teach the same courses as all other schools in the country are mandated to teach, requirement for ABA accreditation. I know a degree from LSU was definately a respectable JD degree, I was just worried about the possible implications of studying for the bar.. Now I know it's all the same..

congrats
