Minneapolis, Chicago, New York or Boston for the Fall of 2008. Interested in Environmental, Constitutional and Public Interest Law.
*Accepted at 10 schools in the 2007 Cycle, but wanted a year of work under my belt.
Was accepted in the Fall 2007 enterting class, but deferred until Fall of 2008.
Was waitlisted for the Fall 2007 entering class, accepted for the Spring 2008 class. Deferred to the Fall of 2008.
Placed on the waitlist via business-sized envelope. I am in the process of writing a statement of continued interest. Would love to go to school here.
Applied Early Decision, was placed on "hold" list. This deferral should be interesting, not quite sure if I will get in here or not, but this is my #1. The hope is to get my dual M.E.M. from Yale. This took a turn when they rejected me. Somewhat surprised, but I guess I have to move on.
-New York Law School-
Called on February 25th and was informed that I was placed on "hold", basically the committee needs more time to review my file. This is somewhat suprising considering I applied in October, but I would love to attend NYLS, especially with the new campus opening up!
UPDATE May 1, 2008:
Toured Albany Law School and was absolutely astonished at how great the campus community was. I met the dean of admissions, as well as numerous 3L's, and I must say this school is amazing!
Toured NYLS, great staff and a nice location. The building will really help boost their rankings, should be done in the spring of 2009. Met with a member of the admissions staff, and I must say that he was quite nice and to the point. Explained that if my GPA was higher, I would probably have had a great shot at getting in. As it is, he says not to worry, they turn to the waitlist. Crossing my fingers here....
*05/06* I was accepted to NYLS as a Part-Time Evening Division Student. I received an email on the 5th from the Dean, asking about my interest in NYLS, and if offered would I accept or not. I am quite pleased to say that today I was offered admittance. I will have details in the coming days...
Didn't get to tour Hofstra, but I would love to attend there. Going to send my deposit to Albany, and I feel excited to possibly live there!
05/29/08 - Sent the $500 deposit to NYLS, and barring an offer from Hofstra I will be attending classes there this fall. I will check this every few days, and I wish everyone out there the best of luck with the last few months of the process. Don't give up hope, you are doing something wonderful and you have the unique opportunity to work for members of society who need help!
06/05/08 - I was offered admission to Hofstra Law! I am ecstatic, can't believe that the process is now over. The deposit is $850, and I will be sending that out early next week. Withdrew and canceled deposit for NYLS, and will begin the process of looking for a place to live with a few buddies in NYC...best of luck to all! I will check this every few days to see how everyone is doing
Questions/Comments/Concerns? Feel free to share. This process certainly has been interesting, I hope that you find the right school to thrive!
