Congrats on the LSAT. I'm sure you'll get into some good places.

Quick Note
Thursday, February 14 2008 at 07:00 PM

You should consider applying to Howard University. LSAT range is 148-154 gpa 2.8-3.4 and it is in Washington D.C.

Thanks for Suggestions
Monday, November 19 2007 at 07:00 PM

I definitely appreciate your comments/suggestion and will look at Howard. Despite applying to schools within my range, I am burdened with an extensive criminal history (civil rights restored by Gov. Crist in 2007). Thanks again for your suggestion.

Best of Luck
Saturday, January 26 2008 at 07:00 PM

I keep checking on you man and hope things work out. Alex

Never Give Up
Tuesday, January 08 2008 at 07:00 PM

We're very similar in background. I'll be keeping an eye on your cycle. Send me an e-mail and I'll share more with you.

CONGRATS

Congrats on your acceptance, this was my 2nd time going through the cycle and its going so much better than the first! I just withdrew from Touro, so hopefully that will help you out!

so happy for you!

NEVER GIVE UP! I'm on my 2nd round too and WAITING for a decision is tough.

Hey congrats on CSL!! Nice $$ too. I live in Charlotte and have been hearing some good things regarding the school. I'm actually headed there for an open house Saturday. You planning on attending or holding out for another school? Again, real glad to see this worked out for you.

Did I tell you, I'm going to law school.
Monday, November 19 2007 at 07:00 PM

I'm not sure yet, there were two other schools that did phone interviews and implied my chances for acceptance were good. I have until May 1st to send in the seat deposit so I will just start getting ready to move and play it by ear.

Congrats Mike

Way to go bro! All your hard work paid off! I'm very happy for you.

Good for You
Sunday, September 24 2006 at 08:00 PM

You success at both getting your civil rights restored and admission to law school is a lesson for all of us! I hope you go to PLS in Arizona 'cause you would add so much!

Congrat on 3!!
Saturday, January 26 2008 at 07:00 PM

Monday, December 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

How the hell did you get rejected from all of these schools? Your numbers aren't bad.

Very proud of you
Wednesday, December 19 2007 at 07:00 PM

I was trolling some schools to find stuff out about them, and noticed on two or three of them you were a statistical anomaly, so I got curious, followed the link, and eventually found your mention of criminal history. All I have to say is, as long as you stick with this stuff and "turn around," you'll be a MUCH more effective, capable advocate, than would be most typical snotty upper-middle-class children of yuppies who haven't seen any other side of life. Proud of you for taking lemons to make lemonade! :)
