Additional info & updates

A depressed high GPA/low LSAT splitter. Is there a support group I can attend?

I applied to Columbia and NYU, in spite of the fact that I'm an "auto-reject," because I'll be darned if I busted my butt for four years NOT to apply to the schools I dreamed of attending.

01/09/06 -- Pace Acceptance + 18K/yr, large white envelope, +the realization that I am, in fact, going to go to law
school. WEEEEEE!!!

01/24/06 -- Status at Fordham's online status checker is "pended" so I assume that means I've been deferred. Does anyone want to give me some input on that?

01/27/06 -- Got the official deferral letter from Fordham in a manila envelope. It also came with a letter of continued interest which I sent back.

01/30/06 -- In at St. John's!!! It came in a thick letter-sized envelope.

02/01/06 -- In at New York Law School + 25K/yr scholarship, thick letter-sized envelope.

02/08/06 -- Waitlisted at Cardozo. It's been a bad day all round.

02/15/06 -- Cardozo update: Got a call from Dean Schwartz, offering me a place in the May program -- what do you think, guys??

03/02/06 -- Weird deferral/waitlist letter from Brooklyn. If I choose, they'll review my app again in the spring and, if I'm sooo lucky, maybe they'll offer me part-time admission. Brooklyn continues its tradition of being completely obnoxious. Seriously, this WL letter couldn't have been more different from the polite, matter-of-fact WL I originally received from Cardozo.

03/11/06 -- In at Fordham PT. I'm confused...:(

03/18/06 -- Dinged by NYU. Hey, if you're going to get rejected, it might as well be by a T5, right? ;)

04/14/06 -- Columbia ding! See above :)

PLANS FOR FALL '06: Fordham PT for 1L then going to switch over to FT. All in all, I've been pretty satisfied with this cycle. :)

i'm in the same boat

i feel your pain about the high GPA/low LSAT... we have similar numbers and are applying to some of the same schools. good luck on your apps!

Fordham, argh!
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

Saw your comment on LSD (I'm in deep lurk mode) about Fordham's email. I got it too! Don't tell us about your open houses before you let us in! Why are you messing with us, Fordham? WHY?

support group
Monday, January 16 2006 at 07:00 PM

I wish.. I'd be in if that was the case. Good luck with apps!

pace
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptances. Kindly withdraw from Pace, if you do not intend to attend. Don't mean to sound like a jerk, just hoping to get accepted there.

Fordham
Wednesday, July 13 2005 at 08:00 PM

Fordham needs to start accepting us borderline people instead of just deferring us!

congrats
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

Just wanted to congratulate you on your acceptances thus far. We have very similar numbers! Good luck with the rest of the admission cycle!

St. John's
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

I just was accepted at St. John's - no scholarship package. Did you get any scholarship?

St. John's
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

I think its quite bizarre. A lot of ppl with 3.4 Gpa and slightly higher LSATs with half tution scholarships!

Cardozo
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats!! If I am offered a place in the May program I am going to seriously have to consider it. I think you should also...! Are you still being considered for Fall admission?

St.John's
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

Perhaps SJ is mostly concerned about raising their 75-25 LSAT for USNEWS and doesn't care about GPA? Very sad :(

congrats
Monday, January 02 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on SJU. Fantastic school with great connections in NYC. I'm jealous!!

Cardozo
Tuesday, December 06 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey, I am confussed... after you got waitlisted at Cardozo, did you then ask to be changed to the May part-time? What are you thinking about it? CONGRATS on all your success!

:)
Tuesday, March 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey, Thanks for your note. I put in for the fall 2006 waitlist at Cardozo...I am intrigued by the May start but it would interfere with finishing up two classes for my Master's...maybe I should ask for May consideration anyway. Are you definitely going with May start? Youre still alive for Fordham! Thanks again for your words.

pace
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

congrats on your acceptances. kindly withdraw from pace if you don't intend to attend. thanks so much for your consideration. -law777

congrats on your acceptances. i'm surprised you were waitlisted at Brooklyn. What school type did you go to? How were your ECs/resume background?

Brooklyn
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

I am so sorry about the Booklyn waitlist. I agree with you about the tone of the letter. Are you actualyl going to withdraw from the waitlist? Are you def. doing Cardozo May start? I'm not looking forward to my choices, especially with no $$ from SJU. Good luck, let me know what you decide...!

Brooklyn WL
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

Sorry about Brooklyn - I heard from them yesterday as well, same result. Maybe I'll see you in May!

Cardozo, Brooklyn
Tuesday, January 24 2006 at 07:00 PM

Waitlisted at Brooklyn - no surprise... :( Can you clarify your comment about writing to Dean Schwartz...? Thanks for all your support.

Crooklyn
Sunday, January 29 2006 at 07:00 PM

Is it just me or does the Brooklaw beauracracy just reek? They make no pretense that they give adamn whether you come to their school. They were my top choice initially, but I'd definitely take Cardozo over them. And the May program gets raves all round.

Brooklyn
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thank you! Where are you leaning at this point?

May
Sunday, January 29 2006 at 07:00 PM

Yep. 50/50 chance at the moment. It's right around the corner! Are you definite for the May program now?

fordham
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congrats! It's definitely a tough choice to make. I saw your lsd post. i'll probably respond about the dilemma on there. I was wondering though did you apply to fordham part time originally or full time? Also how were you notified today? I thought they do email. Thanks. And congrats again!

Fordham PT
Sunday, January 29 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations. Well done. I decided against Cardozo May, myself (SJU, here I come). What're you going to do?

re: Fordham
Wednesday, October 12 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thanks and congratulations to you too. I heard by mail but it's at home and I don't know what program it is. I'll check on that over break. Good luck as a 1L!

Fordham
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey, Congrats on Fordham PT, they outright rejected me. So...what do you think you're going to do? best of luck...now you've got some good choices!

where to?
Monday, February 20 2006 at 07:00 PM

So where do you think you're leaning towards? SJU Law or one of the PT programs?

CONGRATS
Tuesday, December 06 2005 at 07:00 PM

wow u have amazing options.. what are you gonna choose?

Cardozo
Saturday, March 04 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Cardozo. I love the area it is in. I was going to apply for their summer start, but I thought my LSAT was too low.

Cardozo
Monday, February 20 2006 at 07:00 PM

Since the deposit deadline for Cardozo's PT program was March 15, I guess I'm out of the running for that b/c I haven't heard yet (March 21). Let me know what you think.

Cardozo
Tuesday, December 06 2005 at 07:00 PM

What did you decide about Cardozo PT? Did you send your deposit?

So?
Monday, January 02 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey there sister splitter. I'm dying to know what you're leaning toward. Congrats on Fordham!

Brooklyn Waitlist
Saturday, October 22 2005 at 08:00 PM

Oh my god, so you thought that was the weirdest waitlist/deferral/partial-denial letter you ever received...I was dying laughing/totally annoyed.

Saturday, March 18 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey, grats on fordham and cardozo, too bad they're pt :( Are you going to keep nyls as a safety net? Nice scholarship there.

well...
Monday, January 02 2006 at 07:00 PM

you're gonna have to change your screen name, because apparently you WERE good enough! congrats! i'm deciding between 2 schools and stressing big time.

me too!!
Monday, March 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on everything! I'm also going to Fordham PT in the fall with plans for transfering after a year. I'll see you there! Good luck to us both :)

me too!!
