Additional info & updates

11/17/08 Got into St. Thomas (fl)!!!!!! I'm going to law school!!! Now just waiting on more acceptance letters to hopefully roll on in!

12/15/08 Got into Nova Southeastern by letter on their website!!!! St. Thomas is pretty much out of the question now (i visited their campus and was not impressed at all and im jewish so its a bit uncomfortable lol). I loved Nova's campus, coming from FSU it seems like it would be more like the campus I am used to.

1/16/09 Found out through the mail that I was rejected from New England Law but they can put me on the waitlist if i wanted them to. I rejected that because a decision for that would be made in May or early August which is obviously way too late.

1/16/09Called Charleston today and they notified me that everything has been complete but the decision would not be made until April or May. That is absolutely ridiculous and am pretty upset that it would take them that long to make a decision.

2/11/09 Got into TAP program at Widner. Not to happy about that considering i probably will not accept an offer to "try-out" for law school when i have already been admitted to other programs.

3/18/09 Sent my seat deposit to Nova the other day. I will be attending there unless FAMU gets full accredited and i will have to step back and look at everything again. I can't believe this process is almost over...nuts!

3/27/09
Decided i will not send my deposit to FAMU anymore and will attend Nova Southeastern University in the fall. I didn't feel like dealing with anymore stress and wanted this cycle to finally be over. I am now a Shark...its official!!!!!

Did you apply for the Spring or Fall? I am at FAU right now for undergrad. Congrats on the acceptence!

Congrats!

Congradulations on the acceptance to St. Thomas. Looks like we have very similar scores and are applying to similar schools. Good luck!!

Thanks
Wednesday, July 09 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the congrats, and congrats to you on St. Thomas! How did they let you know, via snail mail?

Barry WL
Wednesday, July 09 2008 at 08:00 PM

Sorry to hear about the WL, but I bet you eventually get in. They accept a great deal of students that don't accept. Hell, I'll be withdrawing my acceptence, maybe they'll give it to you!! I'm most likely going to Nova, unless I get an acceptence from UM or FIU, which I highly doubt. Will def stay in touch.

FSU
Sunday, November 09 2008 at 07:00 PM

Yes I go to FSU! I see you're a Crim major also, I bet we've had some classes together haha! I definitely wouldn't mind getting out of Tallahassee either, but I would also love to be accepted and have the option (which is looking slim lol). Where are you hoping to go?

Thanks!! Yea, I am interested in the sports law program as well....just took the LSAT again in Dec to try and pull up my score and get some more money...good luck to you in your cycle!

Thanks
Monday, October 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the comment. Congrats on your acceptances!!! Good luck on the rest of your cycle.

Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

Good Luck and Congrats on Nova! We have similar numbers and applying to the same schools!

Monday, August 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptances! Hopefully I will hear more good news soon myself. I scored 3 points lower but have applied to a lot of the same schools.

Good Luck
Sunday, June 08 2008 at 08:00 PM

Good luck on your cycle. Hope it all works out best for you.

nova
Wednesday, November 19 2008 at 07:00 PM

thanks! nova is a big possibility for me also..im still waiting to hear back from other schools..good luck on your other apps!

Saturday, November 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

Yeah I agree with you. Who wants a decision as late as August? I decided to remain waitlisted until I commit to a school , which I hope will happen around April. Then, I'll withdraw from everywhere else.

Charleston
Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

Are you serious they said it would take long? That is insane....Thank you for the info b/c I will not hold my breathe for them now! We have a lot of the same schools in common....what is your first choice?

Monday, August 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

Just out of curiosity, did St. Thomas offer you outright acceptance or summer conditional acceptance? I am wondering what their LSAT cut off is for the summer conditional. That is what I was offered and I scored a 145.

Wednesday, September 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

yupp! congrats to you too..you got in to a couple of schools already..im pretty anxious for the rest..what school do you want to go to?

Nova
Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

I am so annoyed with Nova. I went complete early early November and it still says "Committee Review". I actually did my Master's there and I thought that would give me a boost, but who knows! Nova is really my last choice just b/c I am in NC now, but have lived in Miami all my life and I really want to go to school outside of FL.

Hi

Good luck on this stressful process Mws. I wish you the best of luck.

UNC
Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

The reason I applied to UNC is b/c someone VERY VERY close to me is a Vice Chancellor there so I have a little push on my side. Who knows....still keeping my fingers crossed. According to the LSAC guide, they took people with our LSAT scores last year. So you never know. I havent heard too much about Charlotte. In my opinion, I think it has a bright future considering its location. I am anxiously waiting a decision from them!

Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thank Ya!

Thanks
Sunday, August 24 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats to you as well for you acceptances so far. As for me, no I haven't decided where I'm going to go yet.

Saturday, November 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

I think FAMU seems like a great option, especially with its new campus. I didn't know that they were up for full accreditation this summer? Where did you hear this, if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks
Sunday, August 24 2008 at 08:00 PM

I dont know yet, I still have more schools left to hear from. But if I dont here from them within a couple of weeks, I'll be making a decision. As of now, I consider all of my offers on equal footing until I look at all of them again to make my decision. Thanks so much by the way for the congrats!

Saturday, November 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the feedback, really helpful. It would be nice if they can get full accreditation - this is the biggest barrier for me. Since I'm applying for USMC JAG, they require that I attend a fully accredited school, not just provisional. That's why I'm considering Thomas Jefferson, plus its closer to home. Good luck with the rest of your cycle.

Saturday, August 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey I do not know what to think about the school because I have not had the chance to visit it yet. I heard negative and positive things about the school so I do not know. What do you think? I think I am leaning more to going to NCCU.

The End! =)
Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your decision! Good Luck with 1L!

Sunday, November 09 2008 at 07:00 PM

Well, I am only waiting to hear from FIU at this point. If I am accepted I will be attending, and if not I will be attending Nova. I am really cutting it close on the seat deposit deadline at Nova, but thankfully they accept payment by phone. I see you are attending Nova, congrats on making your decision! Must be a great feeling knowing this process is all over. Maybe I will be seeing you there in August! :)

Nova
Saturday, December 13 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hey! Congrats to you as well. I hope to see you there in august. I can't wait to move down there this summer, I went to visit the campus the other day and it is really nice. Good luck making your decision.

Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

Well I am visiting Charlotte this Friday so hopefully that helps in getting me off the waitlist and I am still waiting on UNC. Word on the street is they will be sending out more acceptances in a week or 2. If not, I am okay with starting my career in NC b/c I just moved here a few weeks ago and i really like it here! I went to Nova for Grad school and loved it so I am sure you will enjoy Nova also! =)
