BARRY
03/01: Accepted (large white envelope)
6k total scholarship
*Attended Acceptance day on March 30. Very nice faculty, administration, and students...nice law building though limited in facilities...also virtually no parking lot..students left to park all around the building in the grass. not much hope for expansion b/c of their location according to what one prof. conveyed to me...not really interested in their concentrations. very friendly campus though..enjoyed talking to the students :)

ST. THOMAS
02/23: Waitlisted, eh..no interest in this school anyway..withdrawing
05/08: hmm...Accepted... emailed the director over a month ago asking her if she could nominate me for CLEO, got a one sentence reply 35 days later (today) saying, "When does the program end?" wow, thanks for the attention! I emailed her back stating that I had already been accepted to CLEO and had withdrawn from St. Thomas when she informed me that she was offering me admission... what is going on over there? talk about being disorganized...

VALPARAISO

i couldnt believe this one...really upset by it not so much b/c i wanted to go there but b/c i had a 15 min. conversation with the asst. director of admiss. a few days prior and she said that she had recommended me to the dean to admit me, was going to nominate me for CLEO, etc.etc.etc...and then i get the letter....unbelievable. i'm still upset over it b/c of the lack of professionalism they showed...

CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY OF AMERICA
1/25: Rejected

FLORIDA COASTAL
1/16: received a large envelope from coastal... scholarship 5k/yr, at least 3.0 gpa per semester..gotta say, this one felt good...especially this early in the process knowing that i am in and will be happy at the school.
* Attended tour on April 6. All I can say is WOW. I was really blown away by their professionalism, facilities, professors, students, etc. If anyone needs more info., feel free to contact me. Their brochures and website do not do them justice...the school is absolutely beautiful and top notch facilities. This is a brand new building, first year in operation. As you may already know, coastal had the highest bar passage for the state of Florida last year... some of the other notables I noticed include building design mirrored by the top ten law schools, state of the art courtrooms used by the state, smart boards in each classroom, knowledge bars, completely wireless campus, lounge and coffee shops., etc in building, huge cardio and weight rooms in building, breathtaking waterfront scenery, and truly amazing professors....

THOMAS COOLEY
11/19: Accepted, applied for winter 2007 (large envelope)

dcurella cannot follow directions.

hey thanks for the kind words....i dont think i will apply to S.Dakota or F AM...i hear F AM is a large minority school i don't think i would fit in...right now i think i am for cooley, then transfer out..i am still waiting on a few florida school, i hope i get 1 or 2 more acceptances...i wish they would like more at an overall person then a score..Good luck and congrats on the schools u got into (BTW PT isnt really an option i would be in law school way to long)

pt
Sunday, November 26 2006 at 07:00 PM

thanks for ur message... ya, i figured that about famu but i thought maybe u would transfer out..and the pt suggestion is only for the first year...u would take 12 credits/semester and then switch over to fulltime 2nd semester or 2nd year depending on the school...the 6 or so credits is made up in the first summer

Hey how did you recieve scholarship money from Barry and Coastal (did you apply for it special); and did you find out through your acceptance letter.

RE: UDM
Saturday, December 10 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thank you very much for the nice words. I am humbled by the acceptance and am waiting for the acceptance offer in writing. It is great to hear about the Muslim community in Detroit. My other acceptances at Widener, Nova Southeaster & Appalachian are for their conditional summer programs. Personally, I am highly skeptical of these programs as they do not guarantee admission offers. I havent heard good things about these programs from others either. Congrats on your acceptances!!! Which school are you leaning towards? I see that you have been waitlisted at St. Thomas too. What do you think of the school? Good Luck!!

Re: barry and coastal
Sunday, November 26 2006 at 07:00 PM

i was considered automatically for scholarships...found out through my acceptance letter.

good luck
Saturday, October 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

top school
Monday, March 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

Wednesday, May 17 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations. I toured there after my acceptance and I agree wholeheartedly. The school is really going places and the facilities are truly amazing. Are you going to attend? Maybe I will see you there, and best of luck wherever you wind up as a 1L. You have some good choices

Congrats on FCSL. I will probably be attending there in the fall. I will be making a trip there in a few weeks. I saw that you really liked it. I have never been to the Jacksonville area, i grew up in miami...so I was a little hesitant to move up there. How was the city? The school is also fairly new and I was worried about it. But it seems to be doing wonderfully. Are you attending there? FT or PT? Feel free to email me. Thank you so much. Good Luck!
