Thoughts and Comments: This cycle as well as this site have been another source of inspiration for me. I have come to the realization that everyone has a story and although you may not initially believe in yourself there is at least one thing that sets you apart from the thousands of other applicants. If not good luck getting in anywhere. I also think people are too focused on their numbers (LSAT/GPA) and by people I mean schools and students. Usually schools outside of the top 25 are more concerned with these numbers because they are trying to improve their USNWR ranking, which in turn will increase applicants, prestige, and money. Students (including myself) have naively believed that a 3.75 and >170 will get you into Harvard. It doesn't. Anyone, if given the time can study for and do well on the LSAT, it's not necessarily the best indicator of future success as a lawyer. While, it's extremely important, so too are your personal statement and letters of recommendation. Law Schools don't just want someone who can test well, they want people who are leaders and who have overcome obstacles because law school will most likely be one of the biggest challenges that you have faced in your life to date.

I have also seen a lot of animosity towards people of color especially African-American students with low LSATs, who have gotten into great schools. First, read the statement above. Second, most of these people can't seem to see past numbers. Being the first person in your family to graduate college, let alone go to law school can be a tremendous challenge, because you are doing it virtually on your own(I wasn't one of them). They assume that you are just a token minority to fill a designated minority quota. There are infinite possibilities as to why someone doesn't typically do well on the LSAT, but is an otherwise qualified applicant. So don't be so closed minded. As an example, I didn't play the race card in my personal statement. Rather, I talked about how I worked during school and had to adjust, which I believe will prepare me for law school. And I got waitlisted by Northwestern, while other applicants with higher numbers were rejected. Go figure.

I feel blessed by the choices that I have because I did my research on the schools that fit my needs. Although, I currently do not have scholarship money, I will definitely be working hard to get some for my second and third year. LLS here I come!!!!! I hope my page is an inspiration to others, who like me were nervous about their potential successes in this grueling application process.

Law School Rankings: So the 2010 Law School Rankings came out and there were some obvious surprises-USD's big jump and some new faces in the top 100. While some of the schools I chose to apply to were based on USNWR, but it played a relatively small factor in my decisions. In retrospect, I am proud that I made this distinction. I have come to realize that although the USNWR rankings have some impact on job prospects, they are otherwise irrelevant. Some factors that the USNWR considers are contributions per capita, Dean surveys, surveys from lawyers and judges, and acceptance rate (all of which are highly manipulable). Have you noticed some of the games that law schools play? They send you information, enticing you to apply, when they are going to reject you. In addition, small schools have the advantage in USNWR. We may not all be math whizzes, but it is obvious that contributing less money per capita is easier with a student body of 160 vs. 400. Time can be better served researching the actual quality of education, law school environment and employment prospects.

While some schools may not ever make it into the top 25 (i.e. Loyola, Chicago-Kent), they wield considerable weight in their respective regions. In Southern California do you think a graduate of Notre Dame would have a better chance than a Loyola grad of getting a better first job? I think not. Law firms, corporations and public interest groups are familiar with the law schools in the area. They know the professors and the type of students that each school produces. Plus the connections that you make during law school will last you a lifetime. It's a little harder to start all over in a new region. Just something to think about.

Interesting articles and a game that allows you to manipulate the rankings:

Additional info & updates

Interested in sports law, I want to be the next Irwin Mandel. I think this site is very helpful and I would be happy to share any information about myself regarding my cycle. I have gained a realistic insight to what my chances are and have gained some inspiration as well. Good Luck to everyone.

11/15: Got in to U of Miami. I am veeeerrrryyyyy happy and I hope the success continues.

11/20: Directed letter of recommendation for UCLA done, I will be applying tomorrow on my birthday, hopefully that will be a good sign.

12/5: Complete and in review at DePaul and Chicago-Kent....So 8 schools are complete and in review....some of these decisions will probably make or break my Xmas....Hopefully, I get into at least one of my top four.

12/12: Good News First: In at DePaul. I received an e-mail and a phone call. Packet with scholarship information is in the mail. SOOO happy nice early xmas present......
Bad news: I am nervous about my Real estate law final....I feel like I could've done better.

1/3: So my first rejection from Minnesota finally came...I'm not too disappointed because it was expected and the acceptance to DePaul softened the blow... In other news Letter from the Dean of my department should be going out today, hopefully it gets there before AdComms make their decisions.

1/7: Shocked and confused by the Chapman Waitlist...So much for them being a safety.

1/13 Part 1: This waiting game is ridiculous....Of the schools I have left, only 3 gave me status checkers, and I only care about getting into one of those...I'm considering withdrawing my apps from a few of these schools, but I have already sunk in the application fees and I want to see what adcomms think of me. In other news, DePaul sent me a T-shirt, which I may try to exchange for a sweatshirt because it is 12 degrees in Chicago right now!!!! Here goes nothing....

Part 2: I got waitlisted at Northwestern I am soooo excited and blessed that I wasn't flat out rejected. I have a chance to show them second semester grades, a new LOR , and on OCI.....Only an acceptance could have made me happier today.....

1/24: Out at UCLA...No love from California....Maybe I'm supposed to move... Who knows...Life is good otherwise so I'm keeping my head up.

1/29: In at Southwestern with a nice scholarship although it pales in comparison to DePaul's offer... Nice to hear something from someone...I was starting to get a little frustrated with the string of rejections.

2/9: So my cousin who is a lawyer was named one of the 60 most influential people in her state (can I put that in my LOCI to Northwestern?) lol....working to finish my FAFSA and more waaaaaaaaaiiiting

2/13: Waitlisted at Cardozo...ehhh...Waiting is painful...but networking is making everything great.

2/25: Sent off my LOCI to Cardozo...sending the "pretty please accept me off of the waitlist" package to Northwestern tomorrow...Excited to be visiting all 3 of my Chicago schools in 2 weeks (biggest interview of my life coming up too... Dun dun dun).

3/5: All quiet on the western front...but traveling to Chicago next week for an important interview, school visits and a tour of the city...

3/14: So it's my last day in the Chi and my gf and I loved it. I loved Chicago-Kent and Northwestern (DePaul not so much). The people are nice , there is great food, public transportation is sooo much better than in LA. I could really see myself moving here. Oh and the architecture is beautiful lightyears ahead of Downtown LA. We shall see where this loooong admissions process takes me.

3/23: A day off from work is always welcome, but it leaves me to contemplate the impending law school decisions. Southwestern in the backdrop of sunny California, with its Entertainment Law Center, but a T4 nonetheless, or DePaul: an old building with top 25 IP law program and good job prospects in Chicago, which is a great city, but the location under the El does not seem like a worthwhile learning environment (Plus the other bad vibes I got when I visited). Decisions Decisions

3/26: Finally some action...but not the decision I wanted...Rejected at USC. I put the seat deposit down at Southwestern today and I am awaiting the showdown between DePaul & Miami for the second seat deposit. 4 schools left on the list and I can honestly see myself at any one of them. To Be Continued............

4/1: In at Chicago-Kent via e-mail. One of my top 4 choices...No word of scholarship money yet though. Loyola made a decision on 3/30, but I haven't received it yet, which is weird because I live 15 minutes away and I could've picked it up on my way to work. Hopefully it is an acceptance, as they have moved up on my personal rankings list. 4-3-3. I feel truly blessed.

4/2: THE GREATEST 12 hours eveeeerrrr!!!! lol I got in to Loyola Law School....I have to attend a summer institute, but as long as I attend and participate, I can attend class in the fall. Weird, but I am excited for all the practice I will get. God works in mysterious ways, throughout most of this cycle I had my heart set on DePaul/Chicago-Kent, and I could have cared less about Loyola, but after my trip, I see the benefits of living in L.A. especially for what I want to do and I actually got in at Loyola. Very excited. Now I just need to find some money. I probably will be withdrawing from Miami and DePaul within the next week.

4/6: 10k per year from Chicago-Kent is tempting but given my desire to eventually practice in CA, I think Loyola is the frontrunner, although I do love Kent's various programs. I have a week to decide because the deposit at Chicago-Kent is due next week. Positive decision from Northwestern(hopefully with money) and Cardozo(would need money) could sway me from Loyola. Will withdraw from Miami by the end of the week.

4/15: Officially withdrawing from Chicago-Kent today. It was a little painful, but in the end I think Loyola is a better fit for me. Barring a miraculous Northwestern acceptance, I'll be spending at least 3 more years in the sunny confines of Southern California. Sweeeeeeet !!!! haha Now to meet some of my classmates on Friday and make the most of this wonderful opportunity.

4/17: So I went to Loyola for it's "preview day" and.......I loved it. The students are so welcoming it's amazing. I met a Dean, the Presidents of APALSA, BLSA, La Raza, and the face of the website (haha). Even the mock class on contracts was interesting. You can really tell that the alumni and faculty look out for dedicated students. They are trying to work on their name recognition in transactional law through a series of clinical courses where you get to work on a deal from start to finish. And even though it looks like a prison on the outside, inside is actually really nice. The architecture had some serious aesthetic value haha. Maybe you can tell I am excited about going to Loyola. I am. If Northwestern accepts me then fine, I'll make that decision when the time comes. Pretty geeked for August.

4/24: Northwestern Rejection-so my cycle is basically over. I am just curious to see if Cardozo will let me in. All in all I am very happy with my cycle. Now to be a student all over again, which means a new batch of sweatshirts and business cards. haha.

5/6: Trying to get my foot in the door with this whole sports law thing before school starts; so far 1/1

5/8: Cycle officially over!!!! Cardozo was taking way too long to get back to me, so I decided to save us both time. 5-4-2, Going to Loyola and I couldn't be happier.

Sports Law

The reason I would choose loyola over marquette is for security. even though they offer sports law certificate which I\\\\\\\'m definitely going to try to achieve, Professor Anderson who runs the sports program spoke to us at Open House and painted a good picture of the program but he admitted most people who receive the certificate dont go to work in professional sports as it is very competitive. They have a lot of connections in the local markets for sports in internships ways but most people use their certificate/classes in other law areas such as contract, labor and Title IX law. I would choose Loyola if given the opportunity because of the fact that if I can\\\\\\\'t get a job in professional sports (Which is very competitive), I want to be able to practice in LA which Loyola is better for than marquette. Dont want to be stuck in Milwaukee! Loyola also has a pretty good Sports and Entertainment Law society that has connections for internships in sports so that kills 2 birds with one stone. Getting into sports is based on connections so usually the best school u get into is where you want to go to so u should strive for UCLA or USC. Let me know if you have any questions. If I end up at marquette Im going to be pursuing sports law to the best of my ability and hopefully all things work out for a reason. I did see one of their alumnists from last yrs class got a job with the rockies and one got a job with the packers so at least I know it can happen from there.

Check out Tulane
Wednesday, January 02 2008 at 07:00 PM

Oh yeah, you almost might want to look into Tulane as I believe they have a sports law certificate (although marquette has more sports law classes/internship connections) and their degree is portable and you would probably be able to get a job in LA if sports law fails.

good luck
Wednesday, January 02 2008 at 07:00 PM

Good Luck with your apps! If i end up at either, i will keep you posted on how they are in regards to sports law.

Fee Waivers
Wednesday, January 02 2008 at 07:00 PM

Usually you will get them depending on how well you did on your LSAT. you can also ask them for one or can qualify for them based on need. All of mine were based on merit on LSAT.

Good Luck

Sports Law
Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

That's the area I'm looking to get into as well! You're on the ball by doing an internship previously with an entertainment lawyer. I'd say that could translate well into another, more sports-focused internship. Sports Law is all about the hustle...who ya know as opposed to what ya know :)

Chicago
Monday, July 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

Right now, I want to work in contracts/wills etc. but I plan on going into law school being very open minded about I want to do, just incase that changes! My top choice is U of I, and I'm planning on practicing somewhere in Chicago, so I would like to go to school somewhere in the midwest. What is your top choice school?

Monday, June 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'm definitely not limiting myself to these schools. I just didnt get a chance to update my profile to all the schools I intend on applying to. :)

Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

yess.. we do! thanks and good luck to you as well.. since we are both applying to gw.. have you noticed their app is still not up on the LSAC site?? oh and are you going to request and interview for Northwestern.. (it takes 3 weeks for them to give you a date).. way too long..

Top Choice
Monday, June 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

My top choice right now is Howard or one of the top NY schools. I have always wanted to go to Howard but have been skeptical about the ranking. Even though its a tier 3, I actually saw in a law review book that Howard graduates have the 10th highest starting salary and the least debt. My friend also told me that despite the ranking it is still "Howard"...so IDK??? But as of now I am not 100% certain of my top choice as this cycle can truly surprise me. :)

top choice
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Youre welcomed!.. Honestly, if i can get into the Early Decision program...then GW.. if not then UPenn, cornell.. they are so many amazing ones..i just cant make up my mind. I really want to practice international law with a focus on human rights..but am open to other types of law as well. But wait, I just got a fee waiver from Cardozo too..no harm in applying especially if they want to pay for the app fee.. do it! (im going to).

Chicago schools
Wednesday, July 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

As of right now, I'd really like to move to Chicago, so I'm looking at all of the area schools. But on my trip I only toured Kent and Loyola. To be honest...there wasn't a glaring difference between the two. Both buildings were very nice, but Loyola's is under a fair amount of construction (could be a good thing or a bad thing). Loyola is right near Michigan Ave, while Kent is close to the train station in more of the financial district. Kent's tour focused a lot on their legal clinic program and their legal writing program, which both seem like good programs. Loyola's tour focused a little more on career prospects. I'm trying to think of something better than that to tell you...but neither one of them had something that really jumped out and grabbed me as significantly better than the other. They both have a fair amount of info on their websites, so I would look at that stuff, I think I learned more from the site than from the tours (although I went over the summer, so I didn't get to see a class or talk to more than one student).

Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

haha you are silly! hey, we have to help each other out.. thats what its about.. keep me posted... sd

Choose Chicago!
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

You should definitely choose Chicago. I'm originally from Chicago, and am applying to Kent also. I will also apply to U of I, once I get my LSAT up in Dec! Are you originally from LA? Will you be retaking, and are you considering Howard at all?

northwestern
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

sir.. are you working on those apps? Well I had my interview with Northwestern.. that I think i might of mentioned.. it went well.. hoping youre thinking of doing that soon.. no pressure.. and NO I did not get that Cardozo package.. but since it was only the app.. Im not too sad about it.

Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

thanks.. will keep you posted.

Monday, May 12 2008 at 08:00 PM

Yup, that's the plan. I got into Marquette my last go-around in 2002 but chose to get my M.S. first. Best idea I ever had. Marquette would be nice, but I'm not going to stress it. Those certificates and classes guarantee you of nothing. Just going to take labor, taxation and business law classes and work my network. Good luck and let me know where you end-up!

Sunday, June 22 2008 at 08:00 PM

It seems that, although our target schools are very different, we have some similarities- our priorities are, perhaps, focused on things other than money (although money doesn't hurt for sure... ;))

Type of Law
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

I am interested mainly in Real Estate Law and Corporate. I have my bachelor's in Business Administration, and hope to remain in the corporate world (despite the current instability of our economy). My cousin an admissions counselor at Cal State Northridge. Are you applying to Howard at all?

Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'm sticking to Chicago, NY, Florida, and Indiana pretty much. I went to UG in FL so I wouldn't mind staying there. I gotta pull a 160 in Dec, so I can have more options!

Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the well wishes! I'm starting my apps now, but will apply to other schools after I get my Dec scores. I was initially scheduled to retake in October, but I relocated and didn't have time to prep. I'm sure your cycle will be great also!

Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Yeay! you will do great.. for my interview she focused mainly on my resume.. and am sure yours is great.. let me know how it goes!

Cleveland
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

I've been a Clevelander all my life. As far as sports law go we have a major sports agency IMG i think its called right in downtown own a whole building. I happen to love Cleveland, but I wouldn't go to a Cleveland law school if I didn't have to. If you end up here, not a bad place to be though after law school. Good luck.

Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Theyve received the law school report and have verified that they have all components of your application. It means that your application is ready to be revised by the admissions committee. sd

Monday, May 12 2008 at 08:00 PM

just that they have rec'd all pertinent info. They have all said within 8 weeks I'll have an answer.

Northwestern
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

Yes, I have had my interview and it was actually a really great experiance. It knocked Northwestern up a few places on my list because of how devout the alumni were to it. I did an off campus alumni interview, it lasted about an hour and a half and couldn't of been more plesent. Good luck this cycle, im sure you will end up some where great.

Nwestern
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Im soo glad you had a great interview. An hour and a half and the laughing definitely sounds like a good sign. Im a little afraid.. mine went well and she did laugh but it definitely was not that long.. well have to wait and see.

Entertainment Law
Saturday, October 25 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey man, I noticed you worked with an entertainment lawyer for a while. Is that what you want to end up practicing? Good luck with the cycle!

Completion
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

Most do. Of the 15 schools that I applied to 14 of them emailed me a form letter saying I was complete. Some of these took a long time, some of these took less then 24 hours. If it takes more than two weeks, I say shoot them a quick email. I did that for two schools, one (UCLA) even made the effort to call me to say I was complete.

Saturday, October 25 2008 at 08:00 PM

Well, I don't know a whole lot about legal practice just yet, so I'm not sure what I want to do. I've been working in publishing for over a year now, though, and it occurred to me that the kind of law that publishing companies deal with might be up my alley. I spoke with some of the attorneys for my publishing firm in Korea, and the material and work environment seemed pretty interesting. But that's probably more copyright law oriented.

Good Luck
Thursday, January 17 2008 at 07:00 PM

Sup man? I see that we are applying to alot of the same schools. Good Luck.

Thank you!
Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

I will definitely keep in touch and let you know. Best of luck in your application process!

Thursday, July 31 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! Maybe we'll end up at the same school. Good luck on your cycle! Any reason you're not applying to Loyola in Chicago as well?

Thanks. I'm hoping the cycle works out for us. I'm sending out requests for fee waivers this week.

Gotcha

don't worry. your gpa will not impede your ability to get in to some great schools. breaking the top 40 with my stats proves anyone can do it.

I wish!
Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

Nah, definitely don't have the pick of the litter. I'm a bit of a splitter and being URM and non-trad kind of jumbles up the pot a bit. I know I'll have an unpredictable cycle, but I remain hopeful that it will all turn out well for me. I don't have any favorites thus far. In reality, I applied to schools where I think I could be happy and that have good programs. Money will play a big factor since I have UG loan debt.

Marquette
Wednesday, January 02 2008 at 07:00 PM

I am enjoying marquette a lot. The professors are great and Milwaukee is not as bad as you probably think it is. I mean its way different than LA but that includes good things (people are really nice) and not so good things (weather sucks.) Sports law wise, it is a lot better than I expected. Even though 1ls dont get to take sports related courses, the Sports Law department and sports law society are constantly putting on career panels and lunches with people in the industry. In fact, last month we were able to attend their prestigious annual sports law conference which was awesome. Made a lot of contacts and learned a lot which has definitely motivated me. E-mail me if you have any questions. I dont check this site very often, but your cycle has interested me and I would like to know what you decide.

Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

Yes...here's hoping! I would like to practice Commercial Real Estate Law. Hopefully the economy is better by the time I graduate. I'm looking into leasing, development/construction and land use. You?

U of Miami
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hadnt checked your profile in a min.. CONGRATSSSS on MIAMI.. what choice is that for you..is it amongst the top?? YEAYYYYYY

Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

That's actually pretty interesting. Well we have about 3-4 schools in common so good luck to you! Maybe we'll run into each other. Also its about 11:20 pm so happy early birthday!! On a Friday no less, I'm sure it will be fun ;-)

hey
Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

Speaking of good options, congrats on Miami! Certainly a great school to attend if you're interested in Sports Law :) I know their business school has an undergrad major in Sports Marketing (or something like that, considering I almost chose the school for UG based upon that major), so maybe it would be possible to take some Sports Management classes while at the law school?

Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thank you...I'm hoping I can bring my score up a bit

DePaul
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks - I feel very lucky getting that scholarship. Not sure how I got it, but I'll take it! Good luck to you, and congrats on your 1st acceptance.

Thanks!
Saturday, October 25 2008 at 08:00 PM

Since you're pretty much all in before Thanksgiving, I think the holidays are going to be VERY kind to you.

Thursday, September 18 2008 at 08:00 PM

thank you and congrats also on you acceptance. So, whats your top choice?

NU interview
Thursday, August 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey I saw you interviewed at NU. I interviewed there Oct 10th. Just wondered how your interview went. I'm hoping to go to school in Chicago. Maybe we'll see each other there:-)

Depaul?
Tuesday, July 22 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey I applied to Depaul around the same time and also have pretty similar numbers to you. Have you heard anything back from them saying that they received any part of your application because they have not contacted me at all

UM
Monday, June 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Miami!!!!

DePaul
Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

WOW, congratulations on DePaul!!

Wednesday, October 08 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptance at DePaul! Which school is your top pick? Also I want to practice entertainment law as well, being that you worked with a ET lawyer could you offer any advice, insight, etc. regarding the field.

Friday, October 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

Some close numbers...when did you do your NU Interview? How did it go? When do you think we will hear?

Friday, October 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

I hear they sometimes ask ppl to take a year off and get some WE.

Thursday, August 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

Way to go with DePaul! Maybe see you there?

Good Luck!!
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

Seems like we have some common interest in the sports and entertainment law field!! Good luck on being the next Irwin Mandel!! I want to be like the "Goodwin Twins!!" Scream back at me when you get a chance...

Thanks!!
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

I'm going to join both of these! Thanks for the heads up! I really appreciate it!

Rivals.com
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

What interests you about sports and entertainment law? What exactly are you looking to do??

True...
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

Being a sports agent is so cut-throat!! That's what I want to do though. I work with a lot of high school athletes from around the country so I get a chance to build relationships with them while they are young. Being a ex division 1a ball player, it gives me a chance to give back. I'm really hoping to stay local and get into Seattle U. I've laid my foundation here and would like to stay here....Our city is booming with athletes right now. We have the number one high school junior and sophomore basketball players in the country!!!

Very competitive
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

It's very competitive. I'm hoping that these relationships I'm building now will help me! It's not even about which agent can provide the best results to a client. It's about who will spoil them with money and gifts nowadays. Lots of snakes in the industry... I'll try my best to keep the grass cut! lol

Sunday, May 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thank you so much!! I wish you all the best of luck in all of your applications. Congrats on your acceptances thus far! Keep it up!

Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! Christmas definitely came early as I would be happy to attend a school like Illinois for free...of course I'm still holding out for my reaches lol. I'm sure yours are coming and will be much bigger!

Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

I want to do commercial real estate. My apps are hidden, I applied to lots of schools. I haven't applied to Hastings, still considering it. My top choice is a T-14. I'll reveal it when the decision comes in.

Sunday, May 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

I would love to do entertainment law, but I would only do that if I went to UCLA, USC, NYU, or Columbia. Everywhere else I'm going to probably focus on intellectual property law (and possibly international law). I see you're interested in sports law...so you may know how I feel regarding location. Sports law would be a lot of fun.

Thanks Fam!!!
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

Yea I was aiming for a 154 or so but I can live with a 152. I'm gonna get all apps done by next week. Thanks for the support and have a great new year!! What are your thoughts about Depaul..? They sent me a fee waiver....

Depaul...
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

I'm gonna go ahead and apply to Depaul.....Also Northwestern. It's a big reach, but you never know what can happen....

Friday, October 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

Happy New Year! Good luck with law school decisions...January should be "the" month.

Friday, October 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

Keep the faith and good luck!

Good Luck
Thursday, October 30 2008 at 08:00 PM

I hope all goes well with you this cycle. I noticed we have similar numbers, so hopefully I will have the same luck! Congrats!!!

heyy
Wednesday, November 12 2008 at 07:00 PM

sorry kind of a late response, but i changed up some of the schools I'm applying to, no more uiuc or northwestern! i think im being more realistic this way haha

Friday, August 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

I got the waitlist from Chapman to man kind of lame it is a school I am seriously considering to.

so true
Wednesday, November 12 2008 at 07:00 PM

yea you're right haha but hey i can only apply to so many. anyway this waiting process really sucks!

Northwestern!!
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on the waitlist!! I'm thinking about applying there..I had a football scholarship there out of high school. I have most of my apps done..Now the waiting game begins!

Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 07:00 PM

how did you find out about northwestern, via email or status checker?

Thank you...
Tuesday, September 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

This has all been much more than I expected. Best wishes the rest of your cycle.

good luck to you too!
Monday, October 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

congrats on depaul, 60k should be some nice help!

congrats!
Wednesday, November 12 2008 at 07:00 PM

congrats on northwestern! did you do the interview?

heyyy
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

First off congrats on NU.. i think you have a good plan on how to get a yes. I keep checking my status and it says it cant locate my desicion letter.. go figure. Congrats again!

Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on the Northwestern Waitlist! Not bad at all!

Congrats
Thursday, October 30 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on the $$$! I hope I am as fortunate as you are!

Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

Honestly, I was never really interested in attending BC. Plus it wasn't a traditional deferral to RD. They emailed me specifically about my "blemish". I would have had to jump through too many hoops to have my app considered. Plus I told myself that at the beginning of the cycle that I would withdraw from any school where I couldn't overcome my situation. I have lots of other good options though. So its not as big of deal as I thought it would be.

Congrats
Monday, December 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

Good luck with NU bro.

Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

I wholeheartedly agree. We don't have very many schools in common but maybe we'll be classmates! Left my email for you to keep in touch.

Sweeeeet!!
Thursday, August 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

Looks like Northwestern saw something in you that warranted a closer look!! You should be excited! DePaul really should get with the program. A T-Shirt...really? Not a lot of lawyer logic in that one,lol. Anyway congrats so far. Good luck with second semester

Chapman
Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

WTF?!?! Classic case of YP.

Miami
Monday, June 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on UM...I recently sent my app there!! But that means I would be staying home :((( Hey by the way lol!! I know I'm late on the response. Hope the rest of your cycle is going well! =)

Waiting...
Thursday, July 03 2008 at 08:00 PM

...I hear you on the waiting thing. Hopefully you will receive the other responses soon.

ahh
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks dear.. trying to just keep the hope alive..

Southwestern!
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Southwestern! I'm thinking about applying...I was waitlisted last year but with improved scores and all, I think I could get in...What are your thoughts on Southwestern??

Friday, October 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thank you! Good luck with the rest of your cycle.

Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

We really may be classmates. I was accepted by DePaul also. I'm very impressed by their correspondence! I also received the $60,000 scholly. It definitely keeps them at the forefront!

Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thanks!! I'm sure you'll receive good news as well in April. We just maybe classmates!

Sunday, February 01 2009 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! It feels good to finally hear something and even better that my 1st was an acceptance! Good Luck with the rest of your cycle too.

Chapman
Friday, September 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

How did you hear about Chapman waitlist?

Chapman
Friday, September 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

Yes it is. I am still waiting to hear from them though. What are your top choices?

wondering
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey.. are you concerned about the fact that NW starts looking at their waitinglist in April but our deposit for law school has to be in around the same time? ugh

Miami
Thursday, September 18 2008 at 08:00 PM

I loved it actually. The weather= amazing. The campus = awesome. It was nice because it was like the law campus was its own mini campus within the larger campus community. I also liked brooklyn alot. I really didnt like Hofstra at all.

Chapman
Friday, September 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

My fiance lives there and I am getting tired of living on different coasts.

DePaul
Friday, September 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

I have a bunch of friends that have went to both Kent and Depaul and both get highly positive reviews. Good luck on Northwestern.

hmmmm
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

I didnt even know that was an option. Are you thinking of doing that? sounds like a good idea though.. it really does! I sent in an additional LOR and im praying..hahah

Friday, September 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

I am not quite sure at the moment, but I am seriously considering entertainment law or criminal law. My background is in entertainment and I feel that it would be a great use of my skills and training. You will love Chicago! It is a great city. Let me know if you have any ?s about the city I would be happy to help.

ahhh
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

You are soo good.. they need to let you in.. at the least for all the effort youre putting in. I know youre going to kill it.. so hurry back and give me good news! Ill have my cardozo interview the day after.. so ill keep you posted.

Thanks!
Thursday, July 31 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hopefully you get into Northwestern though. Best of luck with the rest of your cycle

Chi town
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Glad you went to the interview.. I think just having a second interview shows tremendous interest. Now its all up to the gods of admissions.. My interview at Cardozo went great.. It really is a great school..hope im in. Will keep you updated.

Tuesday, July 22 2008 at 08:00 PM

Yea heavily leaning toward Wash U will see W&M is still in contention.

Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

What rubbed you the wrong way at DePaul? I must know! I visit in April. I am REALLY hoping to get off the waiting list at UW-Madison though.

ahh
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

thanks ...much!

my 2 cents...
Sunday, May 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

I vote Miami... "in the back drop of sunny" Florida! =)

a hmmm
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

that, my friend is the question.. im still waiting to hear if and how much money American is offering. I think ill have a better idea then.

my 2 cents... (cont'd)
Sunday, May 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Ok, so not taking the pending schools into consideration (if you get accepted to any of them, go to USC first, then Loyola), I think Miami is the best option thus far. However, with these schools I think it's crucial to really consider where you want to practice afterward (if not state, at least region). If you are looking at regional hiring (and are interested in working for a large firm) about 10% of Miami grads get hired at the top 250 firms that have branches in Florida (NLJ's list). Similarly, about 4% of Depaul grads work for the same that are in Chicago, and only about 2% of SW grads work for the top 250 firms that are in LA. If you don't mind working in Florida and particularly Miami (where you will def. have opportunities in sports law--however, you will in Chicago and LA too), I would choose Miami. Try to be in that 10%, work for a well-known firm, do a great job, and then no one will care where you went to law school. I also think Miami (with it's great undergrad school) has more prestige/recognition nationwide. Also, and more related to my own personal taste, given how stressed we are all going to be once the workload begins, I'd rather be on the beaches of Miami than in the 20 below winters of Chicago. But as I said, I think the decision should come down to where you might want to practice afterward. I think if it's anywhere near Florida (GA, SC, AL, etc.), I say Miami all the way. IL, WI, IN, WI, etc. go for Depaul. If you want to work in CA, AZ, NV, etc. go for SW...but I do think that it is your weakest option overall. And given the money Miami and DePaul is offering, this point should be bolded. Once again, just my two cents =) I say put your deposit down at either, plan on attending, and wait to see if NW takes you off the W/L =) All the best.

No problem...
Sunday, May 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

If you can get more money from SW...and you want to practice in CA, I think that would be your best bet. I would also advise this if you want to go into entertainment law--film, television, or music in particular. But, sports law, at least in my opinion, is a little different because you have sports teams everywhere... whereas the film/tv/music industries are really only in 2-3 cities (LA, NYC, and possibly Nashville). If possible, visit Miami. You might be amazed at how much you like it. And we go through hurricanes all the time where I'm from and 99% of the time they are nothing more than a regular thunderstorm. Anyway, thanks for the good luck at Berkeley. I'm definitely excited! I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing where you do choose to attend.

Sunday, May 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Haha...No I don't live in Fla., but I think Miami would be an amazing place to be. I actually live near the Outer Banks, and we get hurricanes almost every year. But I def. agree that if entertainment law is even remotely in your future, CA/NY are the places to be. Have a great trip if you do end up flying to Miami; 80 degree, sunny weather sounds amazing right about now!

loyola
Wednesday, November 12 2008 at 07:00 PM

ah long time no see! my status checker for loyola also changed to decision on 3/30! So i'm guessing we'll be hearing tomorrow!!! If it's a no, then i'm hoping pepperdine comes through. but if that doesn't work either, helllloooo southwestern. lol. i'll just work harder to transfer right? good luck!

Thanks for the info!
Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 07:00 PM

I have definitely been leaning towards W&L, just that cost difference is making me hesitant. Actually, I would like to eventually get into sports as well. Working as general counsel or something for a sports team would be my dream. You have some great choices as well! I kinda want to work in Chicago, so that is why I am interested in Wisconsin. You got into Chicago-Kent, so I am jealous lol. Hopefully, you get off of the Northwestern waitlist! I know you would like that. What school are you leaning towards?

appreciate it
Monday, December 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

I see your another sports law guy as well.. case really intrigued me due to cleveland being a top 10 legal market & being literally blocks from IMG's corporate HQ's..plus I'm from Pittsburgh originally and with Cleveland being only 1.5 hours away I'm fairly familiar with the city...congrats on the Loyola LA/ Miami acceptances, those are actually my two top choices and am hoping to get into both...lots of connections can be made in those cities... looks like your cycle is over other than the dreadful waitlists, good luck with those... stay in contact, all the sports law people need to stick together and use all of our connections-being an athlete at carolina has certainly opened up some doors for me already

LOYOLA!!!
Wednesday, November 12 2008 at 07:00 PM

HUUUUGUEEE congrats!!!! my package or small letter still has not gotten here. tomorrow? i do live a little further away in pasadena though, maybe thats why it took longer? omg im so scared! was it a big envelope? ru doing pt or ft? ru going to accept loyola? =]

WOW!
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

I'm excited for you! Congrats! You deserve it!

yay!
Wednesday, November 12 2008 at 07:00 PM

summer institute? whats that? and hey you're in, and even if you don't go you can say you got in and turned it down! haha. but i hope you get some scholarship money out of them! when is their ASD? ru going to go?

Congrats
Thursday, January 01 2009 at 07:00 PM

Glad to see you got into Loyola too!

northwestern
Wednesday, November 12 2008 at 07:00 PM

oh boy im wishing you the best with northwestern! my boyfriend is going to get his PHD at northwestern so i actually originally really wanted to go there too. i didn't end up applying since my numbers were sub-par, and i want to practice in cali. GOOD LUCK! hope you get off that waitlist =]

Thursday, January 01 2009 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, barring any miracles from some of the schools that are still out, its looking like Hastings.

loyola!!!
Wednesday, November 12 2008 at 07:00 PM

rejected =[ oh well. helllloo southwestern. they gave me money anyway. at this point im likely to try and transfer out after one year. *sigh* its been pretty disappointing lately. should i send in a letter to loyola and say i'm actually native american? lol

CONGRATS!
Sunday, May 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on Loyola! Go there! There are so many LA entertainment lawyers that come from Loyola. Have you decided that's where you'll attend or are you thinking of holding out for NW?

loyola!!
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hoot ! Hoot!

Thanks for the support!
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the support fam! Everything will work out sooner or later. The meeting will positive...I'll get him on my side eventually!

Thanks
Thursday, February 12 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey, the only reason I didn't apply to Case was the fact that it's in Ohio. I've lived here for 12 years now, and I would like to move to a bigger market (LA, Miami, etc) where there are more opportunities (and nicer weather, haha). Otherwise, I would've definately considered it. Thanks for the congrats, and same to you as well. I'm leaning towards Miami right now unless I get into Tulane, Oregon, or Chapman who I'm waiting to hear back from. What are you thinking about Miami? Thanks again.

Thank You
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for your message! I received it, but haven't logged on here frequently as I was finishing up my last days of work. Seat deposits are due, and it's stressful isn't it?? I'm still waiting on a couple important decisions :-( Doesn't it hurt to withdraw from places who have offered money for those who haven't? I guess I will start withdrawing over the next few days...

Waitlisted at NW?!
Saturday, February 28 2009 at 07:00 PM

Please tell me what you did to get waitlisted at NW with a 154. That's amazing! They're my first choice and I don't even know if I'll be considered with a 166 & no full time work experience...good luck with that!

congrats to you..
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats to you my friend! Let's get this sports law thing poppin!!!

Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 07:00 PM

congrats on your decision. i'm jealous you get to stay in cali and i gotta go to the cold! lol.

Congrats!
Tuesday, March 10 2009 at 08:00 PM

wow, your story inspires me! i don't really comment on people's pages until i saw yours. CONGRATS from a fellow URM! Kick ass at Loyola!

Congrats!
Tuesday, March 10 2009 at 08:00 PM

wow, your story definitely inspires me! i dont really comment on people's walls until i saw yours. Congrats from a fellow URM. Kick ass at Loyola!

Tuesday, March 10 2009 at 08:00 PM

Yes, number twins we (almost) are indeed! My top choices are Hastings and Fordham. Waitlisted at Hastings so I'm keep my fingers crossed. Other than that, I dont really mind going to any of the schools I've gotten in to. I'll keep u posted on Loyola tho... that one should be interesting. p.s. I didnt realize how much hating goes on here. So sad... If this sh*t was UCLA, we'd just get all the ASU and Mecha folks out here and handle these ignorant people! lol

Friday, June 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks so much for the kind words. I am not too sure if I am going to put my deposit down at IU-Indy, for I'm not too excited about the school. I am going to try and see if they will give me an extension on my deposit deadline so I can go up and visit and see if I either end up loving it or it solidifies my decision not to attend. I'm still holding out hope that Santa Clara might come through for me, for I would go there over IU-Indy in a heartbeat. However, I'm REALLY, REALLY hoping I can get off of Loyola's waitlist, now that my #1 choice, Tulane, rejected me. I actually really hope to go into sports law as well. I know half the battle is making connections, which is why I think Loyola would be a great school for me. I'm also hoping that since I am a female, that might help me out as well, since sports law is such a male-dominated business. Football is my passion in life, and I would love to be able to be the general counsel for one of the NFL franchises (as you mentioned in your profile as well). But I guess only time will tell. Good luck at Loyola this fall! I'm majorly jealous!

Congrats on Loyola!
Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

I'm glad you enjoyed the preview day. It really is the best choice of all your options for what you want to do. Best of luck :)

LMU
Tuesday, March 10 2009 at 08:00 PM

AWESOME! im glad you had fun at Loyola's ASD! now if they'd only get back to me, then i can join u in ur celebration. lol as for hastings vs. davis, ive visited both schools and thought both had great things to offer their students. im trying my best to get off either (or both) waitlists, but if i had to chose right now, i think id pick davis. smaller class sizes and overall better campus. it also doesnt hurt that they're now ranked higher than hastings. its a win win so pls corss your fingers for me.

Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 07:00 PM

hey! i just wrote a comment addressing anonymous too lol. anyways, i sent a deposit to w&l. wisconsin doesn't have a deposit so i'm happy about that. i'm still unsure where i want to go. i keep going back and forth. i hope i get into wash u with some money, that will make it a lot easier :) i was actually kinda mad i didn't get into loyala. i have some friends who go there and i love cali, so i woulda def considered it. hope all is well with you tho

Congrats
Thursday, February 05 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey Congrats on Loyola, I'm glad to see another member of the class of 2012 here. I went to the preview day and I just loved the school. I was already pretty sure that I was going to go to Loyola based on an earlier campus visit I did but I just love friendly atmosphere that Loyola has. I visited a few law schools in the last year and Loyola just feels right. I'm on a few waitlists and should I get into BU I might maybe change my mind, but I'm not sure. I'm just so happy to be going to Loyola, much happier than I thought I'd be. I also agree with everything you said about the USN rankings, they do have some impact but I feel like a lot of schools (like Loyola) will give you a better quality education than the rankings would suggest.

Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 07:00 PM

yea i mean i would love to transfer but i'm def not counting on it happening. my dream is to grad from stanford (or berk, columbia, northwestern, chicago). so i guess i will try to keep that dream alive until it is no longer possible. i know i need to actually study and work hard in law school. to be honest, i never studied or read in undergrad. i'm gonna put in the effort and see what happens. i will be happy going to and graduating from w&l, wustl or wisc.

journey
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on making that final decision, Cardozo pending.. It has been quite the ride. Im sure youre going to hustle at Loyola and shine!

Friday, January 16 2009 at 07:00 PM

from a fellow loyolan, congrats on finishing your cycle! i will most definitely be seeing you come this fall (though i won't know exactly who u are, haha).

Thanks Fellow 2012
Thursday, February 05 2009 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the well wishes. I got my Cornell rejection yesterday, I wasn't too sad or surprised about it. Really I have no idea what type of law I want to do at Loyola, I really want to give everything a try and see what I like. I'd really love to do international law and live abroad, but I know how competitive that field is. On my 1st student visit I talked to a professor who does business law and I really liked it and I want to give that a try. I would have never even thought that I'd want to do a JD/MBA program but talking with him I did want to try a class at least so you never know what you may like. I also really liked that torts and contract classes I had so who knows.

Yeah I'm ready to get my Loyola merchandise too. I mean I'm on a few waitlists but BU is the only one that I might choose of Loyola now. William and Mary is nice but I'm happy with Loyola. I'm also waiting on Cardozo but I applied super late to them and I would only go there if they gave me money and I don't think that they will.

Wassup fam?? I haven't spoken to the dean yet and I don't think I will make the effort to. After thinking long and hard about it, they could have admitted me if they really wanted to. Kind of left a sour taste in my mouth. They are a wonderful school but things just didnt work out. I fell in love with USF on my visit. So diverse and so many opportunites. Not to mention it wouldn't hurt making some major connections in the sports field within the bay area. I have the raiders, 49ers, Cal, Stanford, Kings, Warriors etc. I am trying to get some scholarship money out of them. Any advice..? Let's stay connected, I am sure we can use each other. I am alright working on some internships for 1L summer with some major sports agencies. I also might be interning with draftdaddy.com....

Hi Sean, Thanks for posting on my wall. I totally agree with your reply about the LSAT. It is hard work and a multitude of other things that really make you a success. Thank you for your words--you really are an inspiration. Keep up the great work! Andrew
