I know how you feel about the LSAT...I hate it...I feel as if it is by far the weakest part of my application....other than that I find the process to be very exciting lol...however that may change as the decisions start to roll in!
I applied to KU in Kansas. I have a family and limited to where I can go.
I considered Washburn, but it is just too far from where I live. It would be almost a 2 hour commute. I think I would get in there, but I just wouldn't be able to do it with my family.
I am checking the mailbox every day, do you think it is a good thing to not have heard anything yet? At least I haven't gotten any rejections yet, I guess. Your score is better than mine, you will definitely get accepted somewhere! Have you started filling out the FAFSA yet?
I will practice in the criminal law field. I am thinking defense. However, I do want to keep my options open in law school. I will go in there with an open mind. How about yourself? What law do you want to practice?
By the bye, Actual Innocence is a great read. I wish you the best of luck in this stressful process. I like your additions to this cycle.
well right now that would be my last option...I reallly just want to wait to hear from some other schools first...how is your application process going thus far?
You have some good schools here. I have no doubt that you will get into a significant majority of these schools, based on numbers alone! I am jealous of your 148, even though it is only 3 points higher, it does give you a significant advantage. And your GPA is great! Good luck!
Just wanted to wish you the best this cycle...stay positive!!
Of the schools I have already been accepted to, St. Thomas and Nebraska are frontrunners, but of course I am still holding out for some of my others...hopefully we hear good things soon!
Have a great cycle.Maybe we'll end up at the same school!
Howard is my first choice, but NCC is looking pretty good for the cost, location, etc. too!
Thank you! Good luck to you as well! Hopefully we'll start hearing acceptances soon :)
Thanks for the good wishes and good luck to you as well! I hope you start hearing soon. This process has been nothing short of torturous for me. haha. What is your top choice?
thanks u 2!
Yeah, mine worked fine. That is weird that it is not coming up. Sorry to see your rejection. You'll get some good news before too long.
Good luck w/UMKC & Washburn. Waiting is the worst.
Well, like you said, you never know. Anything's possible. You can never figure out what is going through these admission people's heads! I think it would be awesome to go to ND or SD just because it's so dang cheap! I love it!
I'm not considering the Dakotas just because I need to stay in Missouri. My husband just got a new job that he absolutely loves and I couldn't ask him to pack up and move so I could go to school. And I'm not really too sure about moving away from him for 3 years, so I'm just trying for UMKC. Then Washburn as a backup. Hopefully one of those two will come through for me so I don't have to move.
Thank you! Congrats on your acceptances :)
Congrats on your acceptances so far, those are great schools!
I'm trying to, but it's so tough. I knew I was going to have a rough time, but it's starting to really get to me now. What's your top choice? Mine is Temple with Duquesne at a very close second.
on FL Coastal, Valpo. and OK City...what is your top choice out of those 3?
I just got deferred. I think that's like waitlisted, right?
Thank you for the congrats. Go Vandals and go Crusaders! We will keep in touch.
Yeah. I was a little surprised myself. Bummer. Good luck to you, you never know who they're going to choose. Some people w/145 LSATs and lower GPAs than us have gotten accepted.
I hope my luck turns out to be as good as yours. You have some good acceptances! Congrats! I am trying to figure out how to get off of the waitlists that I am on, especially for Valparaiso.
I have no idea. I'm equally unimpressed with all my current choices. What about you?
They said they were going to review my file a second time later this month.
I concur with you. Valpo is the best school on your list. We are both waiting for a lot more schools here. It is making me quite nervous. What about you? At this point, I am leaning toward Idaho over Cleveland. What are your thoughts?
I completely concur with you. The LCOP program itself is about 5,000 dollars. They do not offer financial aid for this program. They urged students to go to Citibank. I think not. At this point, Idaho is my best bet. I think that Valpo is your best bet. There are many Valpo grads in Indiana. I was waitlisted at Valpo. Again, nicely done my friend.
Nicely done on UDM my friend. Are you considering it?
I haven't heard much about Valparaiso. What makes you choose it over Florida Coastal? Since they're both T4, I was leaning toward Florida for nice weather, if nothing else :)
I noticed that you were placed on hold at Creighton. I also achieved this status...but I was wondering if you have heard anything from them at all?? It is one of my top choices along with Washburn. By the way, good luck with Washburn...you will get a call if you get in
Do you think our degree has hurt us in the law school admission process? I think it is killing me. I can't believe that a degree that teaches the bowels of the legal system doesn't carry any weight with law schools.
I haven't officially visited yet, I have been on campus though. I'm going to the admitted students day this Thurs & Friday.
Hey... I really liked Valpo, too. Even before being rejected from "better" schools, I had a feeling I'd end up there. Everyone seems really nice and welcoming. Although I've always pictured myself in Chicago for law school, I think Valpo was the right choice for me. Have you made your decision yet?
I was accepted to Dayton as well. Congrats on the acceptance. Where are you thinking of going?
Hello, yes, we do have some similar schools! Good luck on your applications as well, and good luck on the LSAT. I don't ever want to take that test again! If you have trouble with standardized tests like I did, then an LSAT prep course is helpful. I would recommend TestMasters if they have it in your state. I personally did not like my experience with Kaplan. TestMasters digs really deep into the test and gives you a lot more practice than Kaplan's books do. Good luck!
