Additional info & updates

Wish me luck!

I am a busy bee....#'s aren't impressive but my interest in law is!

I just don't understand why Admission Offices focus so much on the numbers! It is like judging someone based on the color of their skin, and not the content of their character....ETC, ETC

6-29-12

Southern U...seriously!?

6-23-12

Scholarship amount is based on 4 years of the PT program. So that's $2250 every Academic year.

6-20-12

Barry University - Review In Process

5-15-12

Accepted to Appalachian School of Law

5-4-12

Waitlisted to Indy U. Please CROSS your fingers for me!

5-2-12

Contacted Nashville School of law, and was told that I've been admitted.

5-1-12

Indy app in review for the 4th time.

Widener invited me to their TAP program which will be held at the Harrisburg campus. The cost is around $2,000 ....not sure if it is worth it.

4-28-12

Rejected to NCCU. Really?

4-24-12

Indiana University app 'In Review' for the third time! I do not think this means anything at all. I am sure by sometime next week....I will probably get a letter in the mail that says....hmmmm you know.

4-22-12 I sent my application via snail mail to Nashville School of Law, it is not accredited by the ABA (I will ONLY be able to practice in TN) but I have heard nothing but semi-positive news about it. The cost is phenomenal and with today's current economy, I honestly think it behooves me to at least put this school as one of my top choices.

If I am granted admission, I will def be attending.

4-19-12 Just received my rejection letter from Valpo via snail mail. I knew I wasn't going to get in. & I AM AN IDIOT to think I will get in to Indy U, or even Southern for that matter.

It has always been a dream/goal of mine to go to law school but because of 'numbers' I am subjected to not reaching this goal. BOO!

4-16-12 Visited Indy U...very nice law school. My app is still 'In Review.'

As for Barry U, my app is now on hold....after being Waitlisted...don't really know what that means.

Checked Valpo Status: A Decision Letter was mailed out today....I know it EQUALS DENIED!!!

4-07-12 Going to purchase my plane ticket to Indiana to visit their campus.

4-02-12 I guess there still is a slight glimmer of hope left. Waitlisted to Barry University's PT Program

3-27-12 Checked Indiana U's app status checker...."In Review." Cross your fingers for me!!!

3-26-12 I will NOT be making a seat deposit for Florida Coastal's AAMPLE program. Even though they lowered the cost to $500...I don't think the stress and rep of the school is worth it

& I plan on visiting Indiana U..

**************************************************
FYI: The schools listed that have 'SP' next to it (except for Indiana University) have invited me to attend their Summer Conditional Programs....
**************************************************

3-20-12 Denied to U of WI...ovi!
Also denied at Appalachian but asked to participate in their summer program :-/.

I really hope Indy comes through for me...otherwise I guess I will take the June LSAT w/ hopes of entering some school this Fall.

3- 14- 12 Denied to FAMU

3-9-2012 Just checked Loyola Univ - New Orleans app Status Checker...DENIED!
I am seriously going to consider taking the LSAT in June. I know there are a couple of schools out there that accept those scores. I believe it is in my best interest...SERIOUSLY! So if you are looking at my page, PLEASE give me some insight with what I can do. I suck at the Logical Reasoning Section...I would love some insight and advice on how to ace this part of the test. I will NOT give up (easily).

3-5-2012 Got Letter in the mail from Memphis - Rejected! Not sad, I knew it.

2-28-2012 Memphis mailed out a letter. Nothing was stated on the app checker, just decision made.....which my assumption = REJECTED.
Applied to Suffolk because I got an e-mail from them....

2-27-2012 Applied to Valpo Law

2-22-2012 received an e-mail stating that I was rejected to Charlotte School of Law, and notified to apply to their AAMPLE program. :-(

2-15-2012 Florida Coastal e-mail admitting me to their AAMPLE Summer program....not interested. Far too expensive

2-11-2012 Jones School of Law Acceptance, requiring that I complete their Summer Conditional Program. At this point, I'd likej to weigh my other options (that I will soon acquire...hopefully) and see what else swings my way.

Good luck this cycle... Hope you get in. I'm hoping for NCCU but already re-taking my lsat...

Thursday, October 13 2011 at 08:00 PM

status checker.

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

So UDC status checker said they mailed a decision letter the 16th and you haven't received it yet huh? Same here lol.

UDC
Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

Noo! Think positively, I saw that they accepted some with our numbers. Let me know when you get it! I really hope mines is a yes seeing as I reallllly want to stay in DC.

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

Yeah it is! I am at Howard undergrad now so I hope to get in. They take forever with decisions though! I hate these long waits! lol

UDC
Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

So did you check the status checker for UDC? Mines said that the message saying the decision was sent was an error lol smh. If the mailing matches up with the status line saying decision made then yeah it's been sent, but otherwise they said they apologize. Smh.

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

Thank you! I was accepted to their three week Summer Conditional Admit Prgram, which I am sure I would do great at. Lol. Still waiting on all these other schools! Hoping to get a full acceptance to a few more better ones.

Howard
Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

Didn't get in! Noooooooo! Smh :(

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

You are still waiting on lots of decisions though, I am sure you'll have more options. And oh no I just saw your UDC decision :( I haven't heard anything from them yet smh, they are stressing me out; some of the conditional wait list admits I have have deadlines approaching for their summer programs smh.

good luc
Saturday, October 22 2011 at 08:00 PM

My numbers are similar to yours. I've been following you. I know that you will do well wherever you go. Keep us posted!

Sunday, December 18 2011 at 07:00 PM

That last good luck message was from me.....didn't realize I wasn't logged in. :)

Congrats!
Thursday, January 05 2012 at 07:00 PM

I wasn't logged in before but congrats again :)

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

That's the spirit. Although we may be limited in options, at least we are being considered SOMEWHERE. There is always the option of transferring or just making the best of what's available at any school to end up on top. I just remembered we had both experienced that issue where UDC said they mailed letters and it was an error. So when you saw your decision, was it through the status checker? I am becoming so stressed because they are taking so long!

Retaking the LSAT
Tuesday, August 02 2005 at 08:00 PM

I'm not sure what you did the first go around with the test, but have you looked into taking a course or the LSAT Power Bibles? I think they are good tools. I hate the LSAT and I would re-take again if I hadn't exhausted how many times you can take it. :) I know for a fact that my resume does not show the same effort as my LSAT because I know I have a strong resume. I just spazz out during any standardized testing. I've never been good at any of them - GRE, SAT, ACT, LSAT. Blah.

Hamline
Tuesday, August 02 2005 at 08:00 PM

How did Hamline let you know about your response? I'm still sitting at review with them as I'm sure they're going "Hmmm.." with my application - haha.

Tuesday, November 29 2011 at 07:00 PM

You said you were thinking about re-taking in June. If you are still thinking about retaking, I would be happy to give you whatever advice I can if you send me a message to my mailbox. I think that anyone in your situation should retake, as I have seen/heard of people increasing their scores 20+ points who have scores such as yourself. It will take a ton of work (been there!), but waiting will be the best decision you have ever made if you can improve your numbers.

Friday, June 10 2011 at 08:00 PM

it is possible to get in somewhere with your scores, I am a prime example. i would suggest that if you want to get in at TSU that you make a visit if you can. I walked in, spoke with the Dean and was admitted on the spot. I know a couple of others who have done the same...good luck! i included my email if you have any questions

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

Hey! Still debating!! It's such a stressful decision. Still waiting on UDC. I got my acceptance to CLEO two days ago, so waiting to hear back about some questions I asked them. Smh. What about you?

Saturday, April 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

I won't be making a decision until I get back from New York, I have until 4/30 to make a decision. We shall see...

Saturday, April 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

I'd take the summer conditional opportunity at your #1 Indiana University Indianapolis...You may be a good candidate for Law Preview as well.

Saturday, April 30 2011 at 08:00 PM

Good luck with your final choice. My advice would be to visit IU, and sell yourself to the best of your ability. When you want something bad enough the whole Universe conspires to give it to you.

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

They have my app on "Hold" at UDC as of 4/9. Sent an LOCI and have to decide by tomorrow whether I'll accept CLEO

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

Thanks!! I hope so!! It's just CLEO, Summer Institute

Monday, February 06 2012 at 07:00 PM

Hey--if there is anything I learned about taking the LSAT its practice practice practice..literally that is the ONLY way you will improve. I put in a solid 2 months of 6 days a week doing 2 prac tests a week and the nights I didn't do prac tests I did 2-3 timed sections rotating the 3 diff types. I increased my score 11 points. You can do it!!! Good luck :)

UDC
Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

Did you receive an email from UDC with a MyUDC login and student number to view your financial aid info before receiving your decision?

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

My status checker says I am on "hold" :( Grr lol.

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

Thanks and stay positive!!! I got an email with the decision.

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

WL
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

WL
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

yeah, but i don't want to go anywhere else but Indy!! i hope i can get it! switched to either! Thanks for the motivational support, much needed. Im sure you're going to get off the WL, i switched to PT to up my chances, or made it NO PREFERENCE in my last loci

WL
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

aww don't say that!!! were both going to get in! I'm praying everyday! why may 31st tho? i don't think they are going to get to the WL before June.

WL
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

oh! cool! heres hoping to get into the summer start program!

WL
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

WL
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

i didn't know there was someone out there who was more observant than me about the WL situation. I don't know where you're getting these dates from, but i hope you're right!

WL
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

ahh. i see. i was waitlisted 4-11-12. So, June 1st to the 22nd is when I should keep my ears and eyes peeled. Not like i haven't kept em alert haha

WL
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

you can't get rejected via WL right? its like hearing something or not hearing anything.

Sunday, December 11 2011 at 07:00 PM

No, I'm not withdrawing. Why would I rid myself of an option. But best of luck!

Indy Visit
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

hey, I'm planning a visit to the school this friday, was just wondering if you sent anything to let them know that you were coming to visit, or if you dropped by the admissions office at all?

visit/loci
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

the visit went better than expected! got an impromptu tour and bonded with Val Young at the front desk! she even updated my file about my visit and even called Dean Kinney about my visit! LOCI addressing wise, i adressed it to the actual law school address and put to whom it may concern. emailed it to mossier and law admit and every email that was listed. I hear that it is more effect to address and email it directly to Patricia Kinney!

WL
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

hey, i haven't heard from you in a while! hope your theory is going to be proven correct in the next few weeks! I'm really banking on it!

WL
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

any news? I'm thinking we hear back june 28th ish?

WL INDY
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

i see you got off one other WL, same here.. still waiting on Indy though. Any more theories? I'm predicting June 28th?

back up plan?
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

lo., back up plan is to retake and reapply. really hoping to get in off of the wait list though.

WL life
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

they didn't say anything! thats the situation, Syracuse called me off of the WL so i accepted it! Going to upstate NY! JD/Masters in Communications here I come!

giving up
Thursday, April 12 2012 at 08:00 PM

yup. orientation schedules were released this morning to accepted students. I'm fully paid up at SU. Got an apt and will be attending a top 100 program, also trial advocacy is ranked 12th. which is something i really like. Also, Newhouse school of comm is pretty much the best thing i could couple my J.D with. so, yes, I'm giving up. everything happens for a reason! Good Luck!
