Good luck to you, but why not throw an app to CUNY?
...but I could read on the train, rather than drive.
Hello. I actually applied last year to Rutgers, but decided against it this year. I've already gotten into Drexel with $, so it would be cheaper than out-of-state tution at Rutgers. Additionally, Drexel and Temple(my first choice) are closer. In fact, Temple has a shuttle bus that goes from my town in the suburbs right to the main campus where the LS is. I wouldn't have to take the train OR drive. Good luck in all of your applications and on getting in to your top choices!
I have a huge gripe with the dean's cert! What a bunch of BS. Why do I need someone that wasn't even at the school when I was there to confirm what my transcripts already show. I graduated how many ways does it need to be said, right? It's cool that you live in a commutable distance to some good schools. I just wish Rutgers, Temple and Seton would get on the ball and start handing out some letters. Good luck to you. Don't let the bureaucratic red tape get to you.
Hope you get into the school(s) of your choice. U. of Georgia was pretty fast with their decision. You just sent your app last week!
On rutgers! I'm a little jealous. All I get from them are emails to attend things or apply for scholarships that past rutgers students have won. If I get one more email from Anita Walton that isn't a decision I'm going to lose it ! How did you get your decision?
U of Chicago and Illinois nth went from decision mailed to denied. Also Temple went to decision mailed and then I was informed that accepted students have an accepted message and rejected ones get a decision made/mailed. So technically I've been rejected via status checker by them too
Did you know there was an online status checker for Rutgers-Newark? Not that it matters now. But I just found out about the site today, and that I was accepted. So maybe if there's an admitted students weekend we might see each other there!
I'm going FT, but I still haven't gotten a letter from them yet. Unless I got mail today which I didn't check b/c I wasn't sure if they delivered mail today. But as it stands I still haven't gotten so much as a congrats from the school. So this is the first I've hear of admitted students week. I haven't made up my mind about where I'm going just because I still have lots of apps out. But I definitely prefer RU over Pitt. so if everything else is a rejection then I'll be there
Hey it looks like we will be part of the same class at Rutgers Newark PT. Did you receive the email from them or just the acceptance package?
I've started subsconsciously checking my e-mails and the mailbox for decisions. I might need to see a shrink when this is all said and done. Congratulations on getting into your number 1 choice. You have some interesting soft factors.
Good luck on your apps as well.
Good luck to you too and thanks on the congrats! Your softs are so interesting, I'm sure they'll have a positive impact!
Happy to see you got into Rutgers!
For a long time I thought whatever school accepted me would be my top choice :) But now I am really looking into cost of attendance. Sooo for now, Rutgers is at the top of my list. You cant beat in state tuition :)
Congrats on your acceptances. Our numbers are similar(I would like your 156 over my 150)I also started a business (Investment Real Estate) I got in at Widener today via status check I was checking it every morning before I start work. Good to see the non-traditionals are getting in!
however applying to schools is a very cost prohibitive process, so I narrowed down my list & applied to 13 schools, which I would be comfortable attending any of them, factoring in the cost of attendance since I owe an enormous amount of $$ in loans from UG...
& hopefully RU-C works out for you...
Thanks- it was a major bummer, but I am praying to get off the WL. Congrats on Rutgers, though!
Business is weak the collapse of the majority of the mortgage industry and secondary credit markets has made business difficult. How's business for you?
Hey Well honestly i'm interested in any school in FL, NC or DC that will let me in haha but I finally updated my list on here. Where do you think you're headed?
Nope, my letter was extremely short and kinda rude but hey....I'm not the strongest applicant and my numbers were way below their averages. If yours did then I would def try next year...Best of luck on your law school endeavors!
A beautiful thing indeed!!! Congrats on your acceptances as well. I wish you all the best!
You are my idol. This page is a testament to the potential of weak splitters everywhere. Thanks and congrats!
For your vote of confidence, I wish that I shared the same feelings about my cycle :). You have some nice choices up there, congrats!
I thank you for your optimistic words but I think it is too late in the cycle to throw new apps out there. For T2, I am not sure I would get the consideration needed to overlook my GPA.
I got a phone call from the dean last week. However, I got accepted for the May part-time program...I'm still waitlisted for the fall. If Cardozo is one of your top choices, you should consider contacting them about the May part-time program (if you haven't already). Good luck :)
I just saw that you applied for the part-time program. Oopsies. I need to learn to read profiles before commenting! Anyways, I got waitlisted months ago, so it took awhile for the response. I'm sure you'll hear sooner this last in the process.
Please... it ranks better.. youll be in a great city.. but wait hows the money situation? have either offered anything... Good luck
shucks.. but i say call Temple anyway and harrass them.. play out the whole urm thing and really show interest.. get on them. You never know.
on Temple. I don't think you can really go wrong picking between Temple and Rutgers Newark.
YEAY! Sooo happy for you.. .now tell them to SHOW YOU THE MONEY!! lol
You're beneath their median on both counts, so it shouldn't be that puzzling . . .
If you plan on practicing in Jersey, go with Camden. Temple however, is a better school.
The memoir "Barman" by Alex Wellen is a Temple law grad's experience graduating temple, finding work in NYC, and passing the NY bar. It's a page turner, and shows what great opportunities await Temple grads (if they go about it the right way), as well as some of the condescension they get from the yale and harvard folks, and why such condescension is based on pure ignorance. Thought you might be interested.
WOW! Conrats on getting accepted to Rutgers.. I want to go to that school, but my current GPA is a 2.2 :/ I graduate this month with a BA degree in Political Science. Do you think I should even consider applying? I'm scared of investing so much money in taking the LSAT and applications and then to get regected :( I currently don't work and my family makes almost no money.. do you think I still have a shot at getting in ANY law schools?
Thanks! I am VERY excited to be attending Temple this fall. I see you have a new baby- congrats! My husband and I also have a new baby. She's 6 weeks old :) See you this fall!
Thank You Kind Sir! Hopefully you are kicking tail at Temple!
Hey congrats a million on getting accepted to Temple :) My numbers on the same range as yours...I was just wondering what did you write about on your personal statement? I don't know what to write about :/
Good luck to you too!
