Good to hear from you...hopefully you're right. Good luck this cycle!

thanks
Saturday, November 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

Good luck to you as well. I would love to go to uconn or mason. I'm crossing my fingers wtih those two. Other than that I also like villanova, baylor and st. johns.

good luck
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

What do you think your chances are at American?

yeah..
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Same with me, the lsat really makes it tough, i was thinking around 40% chance. Well, good luck getting in there and into George Washington.

thanks
Wednesday, October 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

thanks for the insight! i know my top choices will be tough, but im hoping for some magic. i figured that i would take a shot, and if things dont work out ill take a year off, retake, and work. im still not sure why people are in favor of drexel, it makes me nervous that their not accredited yet

thanks again
Wednesday, October 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

very helpful info.

Hey
Friday, October 26 2007 at 08:00 PM

Im a 1L at Golden Gate Law. just a heads up, i had a 3.71 gpa, a kick ass essay, and a 153 lsat (not to mention im a minority and had lots of extracurrics in college which i finished in three years). My point being that lookin at ur stats, i know ur gonna be borderline in at most schools u apply to. U need a couple of safety ones. I was waitlisted at hastings, loyola, USf, Chapman, like 10 diff't schools waitlisted me and they got back to me too late when they finally accepted ( iw as three weeks into school at golden gate) Anyways just so u know even though GGU may look terrible on paper, it is not a bad school at all. They teach bar style, probation has been lifted and our new passage rate is 68%. Plus they gave me a 25k scholarship. Anyways call them up and ask to have ur app fee waved. trust me u r in for months of waiting, u might as well ahve some safety schools. Also, I just finished my sem here at GGU and although it was tough i think i made deans list. the teachers are amazing (my fav. teacher is from Harvard) and so are the students. seriously consider GGU as a back up. trust me. and let me know if u have any other q's about the admissions process.

why do you have a decision date for newark if you are still pending?

Ranking...
Sunday, August 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

Well, I want to practice public interest. So, a lot of the rankings have to do with how well career services and faculty seem to focus on public interest/government work. Schools with great clinics and externships rank high with me. I'm hoping to go into a field that doesn't pay much (compared with things like corporate law, etc) overall. So, I'm looking to get all the practical experience I can as an advantage that I can play towards a better starting salary. I don't really care where I practice at this point. I realize that might change. If I ever want to come back to Ohio I have a lot of ins in state government so I'm not too worried about that. As far as sitting for the bar, I'll have to take a review course no matter where I sit. Both schools I've applied to in Louisianna have a track for common law. So if I don't think that I'd 99% want to stay in Louisianna I will not take the civil law route at those institutions. I did take location and natural beauty/local culture into account as well. Obviously with places like Miami, Boston, Santa Clara, etc there are other draws besides career prospects. Ha. UC, my only Ohio school was applied to because of its great dual degree program in Women's Studies (which was my undergraduate major). They have a great law school which is focused on international public interst work more than domestic, but I feel I could really carve out a great niche for myself there by being part of their dual degree program. I'd love to get out of Ohio, but if by some miracle I got in at UC in both programs it would be very, very difficult to say no to the in state tuition. Sorry for the rant, hopefully that helped.

Catholic/Rutgers
Sunday, August 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

P.S. Are you worried that you didn't hear from Catholic via e-mail yesterday. They are required to render a decision on early action today...I'm guessing the people getting mail are rejections or waitlists... AND, Rutgers' website says decision will only be sent via snail mail. Why do people LIE?!

Thanks!
Wednesday, October 31 2007 at 08:00 PM

I appreciate it. I think you picked a good mix of schools, based on your LSAT and GPA. If you're going to apply to any other schools, pick places where you'd like to live AND you have a decent chance. Most schools are regional schools. Good luck!

thank you!
Saturday, June 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

I was so happy! Good luck to you as well, I am sure you will be fine!

Thanks!
Friday, July 06 2007 at 08:00 PM

And good luck to you too!!!!

CUA/Rutgers N
Sunday, August 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yeah you made it just under the early decision deadline. We'll hear soon enough, I guess. I'll cross my fingers for you. Newarks' website says decisions only by mail...you got an e-mail? Gosh, this process is crazy frustrating and filled with misinformation. Congrats and good luck with the rest of the cycle.

ED
Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

Only Georgetown was binding. The other schools called it ED, but that just meant I got a decision sooner than other applicants

RE: Rutgers
Sunday, August 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the info. Rutgers is higher ranked but I'm still hoping we both get good news from Catholic early this week. Their admissions blog says they sent out all the decision on Friday. I should get mine today if they sent them in the morning, and tomorrow if they sent them in the afternoon. We'll see...

Decisions
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

If you were to choose between Rutgers and Catholic, which would you choose?

Yeah..
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

That's about we're I'm at too, I'm not too sure either. The wait at American and these other schools...is long.

yearly
Sunday, January 06 2008 at 07:00 PM

yeah, the money for drexel is per year

WL today
Saturday, June 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

you might have a better chance with your numbers, but I got the WL today

nova
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Yeah was a bit surprised, sorry about yours too.

American
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

At least I wasn't regected...umm I found out last Thursday via regular mail.

American
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Sorry about that, it looks like our cycle is going about the same way. Are you going to stay on the waitlist?

yeah..
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

I'm really hoping to get lucky with American I guess otherwise I'm chosing one I already got accepted to. I'm going to visit them soon and decide, but none of my choices are too exciting.

villanova
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

I'm curious...why did you lose interest?

St. Johns
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

I don't know if you're interested in moving to queens, but I visited St. Johns and very impressed with the Law School building. It seems like a real top flight school.

Other schools
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

I checked out Rutgers, which I like esp. because of its location close to New York and Catholic, which I was impressed with at all on first impression.

Rutgers
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

I meant uimpressed with Catholic and I'm 95% sure I'm going to Rutgers by the way

waitlists
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

I know...I probably should have taken the lsats twice. Our numbers are perfect for waitlists.

WL
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

I visited American and asked them about their waitlist. They woulddn't come out and say it, but the chances to get in seemed slim to none. Best thing to do is write a letter of continuing interest and keep bothering them by calling them so that they know your name when a spot opens up.

sure
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Email it to me when you get a chance.

Thank you
Thursday, December 20 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thank you. In both cases, I got an e-mail from the dean of admissions. With AU, they said they would be looking at a few candidates to admit from the wait list; with GW, the dean just said to call her back ASAP. I talked to both deans and they offered me admission.
