Thank you! Good luck this cycle!
Honestly this was a pretty big selling point for me as well along with the very nice library(one of the top 25 in the country). I am not sure if you have gotten a chance to visit CSU but, if you do, make sure you take a tour of it!
I am holding out for UB. I'll be content with CSU but I'd love to get in to Buffalo. Good luck!
Thanks! I completed my undergrad at OSU in 2005. The reason I did not apply for OSU law is 1) It was a longshot to get in, 2) I grew up in Cleveland and want to practice law there, and 3) I wanted to experience a different college community. "They say" that you shouldn't get both undergrad and grad degrees from the same institutions. Since I graduated in 2005, I have worked for a few different companies all over the US. I also started a company on the side promoting a Cleveland Browns cause (Cowher09.com). I did NOT expect to get scholarships anywhere because of my crappy GPA. I think the reason I have had success with this is because of the website (community involvement??) and a good personal statement. I redrafted my statement about 4 times with help from my pre-law advisor. It seems like the schools I received scholarships from must be LSAT score heavy. I know its a little late in the game, but maybe think about retaking the LSAT in June for fall enrollment. I jumped from a 150 to a 158 by buying one of those practice test books from Barnes and Nobels and took a full length practice test every 2-3 days leading up to the test. Hope this helps and good luck!
I think that UB only responded to me because I basically called them and said I need a decision otherwise I am going to a different school. It may not have helped my chances but oh well. I was a mechanic for Sonny Nighman
Thank you :) Congrats on Cleveland and Toledo~I'll keep in touch. And best of luck to you!
I'm still down to UT and CSU. I like both schools a lot. Leaning towards UT since I'm from the Toledo area and seems like they have a very heavy emphasis o public service law which I'm interested in which is the reason I'm leaning that way. I'd agree on some of UT's facilities being outdated, but outside of some recent renovations at CSU their almost the same building. I have a deposit down at each so I've got a little time to decide. I didn't have a high opinion of CSU until I visited, so I'd suggest taking a visit as soon as you could.
I haven't yet. I sent in my deposit to Cal Western but not overly excited about school there. I will go to CSU if I get accepted from the waitlist, but that remains to be seen, and I have a feeling it might be a while.
Yes I hope so, my 2nd deposit for Cali Western is June 1st, another $225. I would think it prudent for schools to understand this and make decisions before then, but I get the feeling they're not too concerned. Definitely paying the deposit, but would love an answer, yay or nay, before then from CSU. I'm from N Jersey and my cousin went to Hall, it's expensive but sets you up well in Jersey.
The main reason I turned down Seton Hall for CSU was the money (and the fact CSU is pretty well networked in what they say is the 5th largest legal market in the country). When it came down to it all I figured I'd much rather be 60k in debt at graduation rather than 160k. I'm actually from Seattle but I just got back from Cleveland and thought it was a decent enough city to practice in. If you decide on CSU let me know! Congrats on your acceptance and good luck on making your decision.
I know, still no word! VERY frustrating...
Congratulations on your decision to attend Cleveland State.
I guess it's Cal Western for me. I sent emails to CSU and Creighton and neither reply was very promising, to say the least. CSU would still be my choice, but based on the email I received, very few from the waitlists will be accepted. Congrats though on CSU and if you know anyone still on the fence tell them to withdraw immediately! Muah!
I'm from Buffalo- 5 minutes away from UB. Good Luck at CS and I hope to see you there!
thanks! u too. ive been a studying maniac!
