Extra Curricular Information

Alot of Extra curriculars!

Recommenders: all knew me for 3+ yrs...

Additional info & updates

Got into CLEO: 3/31st just got acceptance email anyone else going, let me know!!!

3/31st Accepted at Roger Williams, Dean Boylen is an amazing nice guy!

Sincerly praying for a favorable response from Howard University School of Law!

nervous as ever...i took kaplan prep summer of 2004...studied since was initially scheduled to take oct 04 exam, punked out! finally took exam 1yr later 12/05 and performed poorly! But i am determined to try and convey to admission committees that the LSAT is not an accurate indicator of my abilities and potential to perform successfully at their institutions! The past 2 yrs has been challenging and has at times caused me to question my abilities (that's what the damn LSAT can do to someone)...but i have encouraged myself by remembering that the LSAT is a microcosm of the real world we will all face when we have that ESQ. behind our names...in that world, winning and losing are inextricably tethered together...someone loses and another wins...what will we all do when we lose our 1st case in the courtroom, or during negotiations? Will we shrivel up, grow faint, and allow that to indelibly shape our perceptions of our own abilities....so my fellow aspirers and future colleagues don't lose faint, this is yet another roadblock that we'll all pass eventually. Unfortunately some highly unqualified and impassionate folks get into great schools w/out trying and the rest of us beat ourselves up just trying to get in...the LSAT may be the first and unfortunately unfair divide that weed out some of us from our 1st choice schools, but it is far from being the ONLY factor that WILL DETERMINE who we are and where we end up...lastly check out this website (forpeopleofcolor.com) EXCELLENT cite....sample personal statements and alot of pointers on how to tailor ur personal statement this site is created by an attorney who fondly remembers the days when he was just an aspiring attorney,facing the same doubts and anxieties that imprison everyone on this site...atleast those of us who are still waiting 4 responses!-)))

3/15th thin letter in beige envelope from U.Miami waitlist!well w/ my LSAT score I'm grateful 4 that!All Praise to God

3/21st: 2 responses Georgia state Law thin white envelope DENIAL!
BUT: New York Law made up 4 it...thick white envelope w/ CONGRATULATIONS I am IN!!!WOW..i didn't see that coming...seriously my LSAT was CRAPPY...once again ALL GLORY AND PRAISE TO GOD!

4/10: Harassed Cardozo, Seton Hall, and Buffalo Admission Offices today. They all informed me a decision was mailed recently...so the wait continues! I need something favorable by friday, PLEASE!Or I will be sending in my deposit to NY law! Well atleast I know I won't be going to the mailbox in vain this week-)

4/11th: Ok...Waiting really sucks..I wish the mailwoman could hurry up and get here. I really do not feel like going anywhere today, until she gets here...my patience is wearing thin. Schools have mercy on me, PLEASE...Just send me your responses A.S.A.P (in the words of TI)LOL!

4/11th 1:00pm: the mailwoman hasn't arrived yet! She should be here no later than 3:35pm. Till then i need to find some Law & Order SVU episodes to keep me distracted.

4/11th In at Seton Hall! WOW..I'M AMAZED! STILL SHOCKED!

4/12th: Waitlist at Benjamin Cardozo law...

4/13th Geogia's Postal System is HORRIBLE...THEY TAKE TOO LONG TO BRING EVERYTHING...I NEED 2 GO BACK TO NYC! NOW

thanks for the comment on my profile. are you applying to any other schools? yeah, the lsat... what can i say. good luck to you.

Miami WL
Wednesday, February 15 2006 at 07:00 PM

I think you have been deferred. The WL is very specific: "You have been selected as an alternate for admission to the U of M...We regret that the keen competition for seats in this fall's entering class makes it impossible for us to grant you admission at this time. If you wish to be retained on our wait-list, please blah..."

Saturday, September 24 2005 at 08:00 PM

technically i think i was put 'on hold' until more applications came in. i didn't do anything extra, but in a couple of weeks, i was take off that 'hold' list. what ever happens, don't worry about it. and REMEMBER . if it doesn't work out this time, try again. good luck in your app cycle and thanks for the comment/! :)

late apps
Thursday, February 09 2006 at 07:00 PM

I was late making the decision to apply to law school. I wanted to make sure it was what I really wanted to do! Once I figured that out, I got my act together. Good luck!

Soon Come
Sunday, February 26 2006 at 07:00 PM

Yes Sistren. I'm sure you'll have to be worrying pretty soon, because of choices ur going to have to make, between which school to attend!!!! Good luck in 1L. I\\\'m sure in the future you\\\'ll be representing your future clients, and your country very well.

hello!
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

congrats on nyls! how does it feel knowing that you are going to law school? enjoy the feeling. since i received my first acceptance i have been losing my hair waiting on the next one. with every acceptance it gets worse. but in a good way. with your second one you will discover how hard it is to choose between schools. i sincerely hope you get into your top choice, and soon, so you won't have to go through the stress of the 'wait.' good luck with the remaining apps.

re:cleo
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

yeah, i applied back in early feb. i was told that i would hear back by the first week in april. i want this! i hope and pray that i get sponsored by a school-notre dame, illinois, loyola, or kent. at this point those are the only schools i'll take over toledo. i heard that if you get sponsored by a school, they will likely accept you upon completion of the program. you can still get accepted by cleo but it i don't think it has the same weight. if i don't get sponsored i'll just go to toledo and plan my transfer. toledo gave me an amazing offer of tuition, fees, and books for one year. but it's not renewable. :-( hey, i'm going to try and organize a networking opp for this cycles lsn urms. nothing fancy. let me know if you'd be interested.

Congrats on NYLS
Tuesday, March 21 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey girl congrats on your acceptance to New York Law..i chickened out of applying because i didnt think my scores was high enough..well good luck with everything...

Hey
Wednesday, November 02 2005 at 07:00 PM

Howard is my #2 choice at the moment. Yes, i am a proud member of Alpha Phi Alpha :)

Howard
Tuesday, March 21 2006 at 07:00 PM

Wouldn't mind getting Howard because I can live with my sis in DC who is about to graduate from Howard undergrad right now..but thanks for well wishes..we'll see how it goes because my lsat score was horrible...right now "mi a pray fi get ina a decent school"

Money thing..
Tuesday, March 21 2006 at 07:00 PM

I know the debt i'm going to incur with Law School I'm expecting it...but we'll see if i get money from ne where...my numbers are low so i'm mostly praying..

Thanks!
Monday, February 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the encouragement! I need it... congrats on your acceptances! -#1.5 LSAT hater :-)

re: cleo
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

nothing yet. i'll probably hear something in the next two weeks. i applied in the low income category. this is probably holding up my app.

cleo
Wednesday, November 02 2005 at 07:00 PM

I didn't apply to the cleo and no Howard for me. Are you going to cleo even though you've been accepted?

CLEO
Sunday, February 26 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey Sister, tell me about CLEO please... I am still waiting on an acceptance, but hopefully one will come soon. How do i apply and qualify for their program?

LSAT Score
Monday, December 26 2005 at 07:00 PM

LSAT Score

Hey
Saturday, October 22 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptances. Nah I'm not going to Howard. I would've, but they so kept screwing around w/me. The people in the admissions office are so rude! They also made a mistake rejecting you. Did you let them know they were your first choice? Send me an email and I'll let you know my lsat.

How's it goin?
Monday, February 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

Just checking how you're holdin' up. Congrats on those acceptances!

passion?!
Saturday, October 22 2005 at 08:00 PM

Nope, more like my stupid ego mixed w/loads of temper. Thanks for the kind words though. I hope I will be succesful. I'm 99% sure I'm headed to Tulane. Still, if I got off of the WL at Emory I think I'd really consider their offer. I think that's the only school that could really get me to change my mind. What's your top choice ? Since you got into CLEO do you think that maybe Howard would reconsider your app.? Have you contacted them about it?

: )
Saturday, October 22 2005 at 08:00 PM

Transgressions on LSAT?!? Girl, your score is right on their 25th percentile for the lsat. Your gpa is above their 25th. You should have at least been waitlisted, no joke. I think if you can visit again, do it. You should write them letters, make phone calls, etc. Be polite, but persistent. Tell them you're going to make very good grades at CLEO. Hopefully they'll come around (if they have any sense) and accept you. If not it's their loss, good luck girl!!

Congrats!
Monday, December 26 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on NYL!

Thanks !
Monday, December 26 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thank you for your encouraging words. I will make sure to forward any questions i have to you. Thanks again.... and yeh to NYC!

Congrats
Sunday, January 29 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations on your acceptance at NYLS. I am seriously considering attending, and I would love to get to know some of my fellow classmates. Let me know if you think you may attend. I wish you the best of luck in the rest of your law school search.

April Aspirations
Sunday, January 29 2006 at 07:00 PM

I think that the old adage "April showers brings May flowers" is especially true for law school applicants. Applicants' futures are cloudy in April, and they often get rained on. Hopefully things will become clearer in May, and perhaps a few flowers will even spring up. Keep up the good work, and thanks for being the only person in the world who's nice enough to lie to me about how funny my jokes are. Keep in touch. P.S. I am also awaiting a decision from Miami.

HEY
Saturday, April 08 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats...girl

Thanks
Thursday, February 23 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the info, I have applied to the DASC program at Seton Hall, the SpACE Program at Temple, and I recently got into the TAP program at Widener. I really hope to get into Seton's program, but it doesnt seem likely. However I didnt know NYLS had a conditional program ill haveto look into that. Good luck with all your schools

CLEO

I'm so proud of your acceptance to Seton Hall!!! I am patiently waiting to hear from them!!! Tell me what the envelope looked like :)

Congrats to you too

Cardozo
Monday, March 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey. I found out from cardozo about a month after I got waitlisted. I got into the may part time program. Good luck with the rest of ur apps!!!

Also...
Monday, March 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

Sorry I forgot to tell u that I sent a letter of contiuned interest that talked about their clinics and why I wanted to go there.

Good Lookin' Out
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey, thank you so much for the advice you left me about staying persistent and mailing in letters weekly to the schools confirming my continued interest! That's a great idea. I sent in at least one letter to each school I'm waitlisted on, but now I think I will send in more. Thanks alot! Did you do that? Did it work out for you? Congratulations on some really good acceptances. My cousin is in her 1L at NYLS---she's definitely enjoying the Big Apple! Have you decided where you're gonna go yet? Good Luck with the rest of your pending/wailisted applications! :)

Congrats
Monday, April 03 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Cardoza!!!

CLEO
Saturday, September 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thanks and congratulations to you too. I will be going to CLEO @ San Diego. Have you found out yet? Let me know whenyou do. Best of luck!

Sunday, February 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats girl!!! Your cousin is very proud of you, keep it up!

You did not tell me
Monday, April 03 2006 at 08:00 PM

ABout Buffalo. Congrats on Buffalo and on the money from the others. Hopefully I will be able to get all the information firsthand.

oh yea
Monday, April 03 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on the Pace waitlist. That is news to me too.

Hey Girl
Monday, April 03 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey my internet connection is out. I have not seen you online in a while. Cleo recieved my money, but they have yet to tell me where I am going to be. Hope all is well. Talk to you soon, -D

Congrats on your scholarship at UB. I'm a non-trad student and a splitter - 3.7 GPA and a 150 LSAT. We'll see if I get in this time around - I started really late in this cycle, so if I don't get into UB, my top choice, then I'll start much earlier next year. I live in Rochester, about a 1 hour drive from Buffalo, and I plan to commute so UB is an ideal choice.

Congrats
Monday, April 03 2006 at 08:00 PM

On your decision to attend U of B. Full rides are always fun. See you soon.

Seat Deposit
Sunday, December 04 2005 at 07:00 PM

Just curious...how much did Buffalo want for the 1st seat deposit?

Hey Girl
Monday, April 03 2006 at 08:00 PM

What's up. You are really hard to get in contact with these days. I guess you are just really enjoying your old stomping grounds. Give a sistah a call. -D

Thanks!
Sunday, December 04 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thanks Virtue! I met with the dean as well. She mentioned that they haven't started using the waitlist yet. They need to wait and see how many people send back "intent to enroll" forms. I really, really hope they have a need for us waitlisted applicants! I'm @ UB now and want to stay more than anything!!! I have given the dean 2 letters of continued interest, one of them in person when I met with her to tell her how much I love the school! Wish me luck!!! I think they'll have a good idea if they'll need the waitlist around June 12th. :-)

Congrats
Wednesday, March 22 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on being accepted in the University at Buffalo. Good Luck in the fall.
