Title: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: legalkitty on February 09, 2005, 08:50:10 AM
C'mon, tell me I am not the only one. This is starting to get a little discouraging! At most of my schools I have been complete for at least 2 months, and I am not even getting dinged at places I should be getting dinged. I am getting no word at all. Who else is in the same boat?? I just want someone to TAKE ME!!!!

If we don't count Guam Law, I'm in at Nowhere with you.  My files have only been complete a week or so, though. But, I'm right there with ya!

It's good to have company, although hopefully we'll both be out of the club soon. I am surprised I haven't even got my rejection letter from NYLS; it should be a given. I keep teasing my husband that he is hiding my rejections as they come in, and he's got a whole drawer of them somewhere! :D

Xony,

Of course, everyone is welcome. Misery loves company!!

If I'm the first out, come to Houston and I'll buy dinner. In the spirit of Guam Law, chalupas for everyone!

well I'm in Austin - let's meet somewhere in between.  How about Smithville!?!
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: LaneSwerver on February 09, 2005, 09:23:31 AM
Hmmm...I don't know if we can get Guam-style chalupas in Smithville. In fact, having been to Smithville, I'm not sure that you can get anything. My wife used to work EMS in Bastrop County and the closest hospital is the one in Smithville...terrifying! On the other side of the county, though, in Elgin--there you have some choices!

Great, applications to this club should be filled out and submitted in a timely manner.  If all goes well, we will be holding our first elections for veep, and secretary.  I already claimed the post of the president!

I am in Philly, but I will go to Guam for dinner if I actually ever get in somewhere. And dinner will, of course, be on me!! :D

It seems like most people who are in at nowhere applied late, but I applied relatively early. What is wrong with me? :'(

Post by: LaneSwerver on February 09, 2005, 09:33:00 AM
I would like to be the Sergeant-at-Arms. Can I revise my LS apps to include this new office of responsibility?

BTW, I only chose that office because I understand it comes with no responsibilities.  I will, however, make the chalupas at the club meetings, Guam-style.
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: Xony on February 09, 2005, 09:39:51 AM
We need Cooley-style chalupas for those who don't like ethnic cuisines.
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: LaneSwerver on February 09, 2005, 09:41:40 AM
Well, I've never been to Guam or had Guamese cuisine, so I'm just going off the recipe they sent me in the acceptance packet.

Post by: WfPck05 on February 09, 2005, 09:45:18 AM
I haven't heard from anywhere yet!  Not even any rejections... but I have hope because others with my index are being accepted so maybe one day soon I'll hear something.

That's how I am, except for my one rejection, and that one was quick. Only my index number is low for most schools, so I don't know why I haven't been an auto-reject yet at some of them. I think my extras are good, and I did apply part time, but I find it hard to believe that my numbers are being overlooked because of that. Wouldn't that be nice!! The schools I think I have a chance at are still in their auto-admits, so I guess I wouldn't hear for awhile from them. It just really blows!! And my birthday is Tuesday; how about an acceptance letter?? :) You can return the Porsche, just give me a yes!!lol

I was complete around thanksgiving and still waiting. I've been waitlisted to 2 ( Quinnipiac and Pace) schools, so still NOT IN ANYWHERE. Driving myself crazy. I applied last year too and this is around the time I started to hear. I was even late getting a response last time from the schools I was no doubt and completely an auto-reject. Plus I'm going out of the county next week, so  won't have any idea if any letters come. I totally want to cancel the trip and sit in a chair by the mailbox!

I don't know!  I haven't even gotten any rejections which at this point are also appreciated.  OK, really I don't want rejections but I would like some sort of acknowledgement soon...

Just got home, checked my mail, and guess what was there????

NOTHING!

That's right, nothing.  Actually, I did receive a nice promotional flyer from the Appalachian School of Law.  Evidently if I have webbed fingers or play the banjo, I get a full ride!!!  I've been working on sewing my fingers together all night.

Awesome, Xony. You rock. I can't be the president, though, I have to stay in the Sergeant-at-Arms position. Who else would make the chalupas?

Speaking of that, I PROMISE I had nothing to do with this:

Post by: dreamer1 on February 10, 2005, 12:08:41 PM
Could not help but say this:

Applying in early January seems to be the curse. The key is to apply before christmas. The only school I heard back from so far I applied exactly 2 days before christmas eve.

All other schools to which applied in early january, and one ON christmas eve, have just been silent.

Ugh,early january, it's the curse.
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: linquest on February 10, 2005, 12:24:43 PM
First app sent in on 1/31.  Ten applications later, I still have three left to submit, hopefully by Monday.

Considering how late my apps are, I think I'll be *cue "Survivor" theme music* THE LAST "IN AT NOWHERE" STANDING.
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: Whygohome on February 10, 2005, 12:36:00 PM
Yeah the early January curse is true, all of my apps were sent out after x-mas, and I've only gotten one decision so far. All I've gotten in the mail since Monday is credit card apps.

Here's something to do while waiting for decisions. When you get those credit card apps they always come with those postage paid envelopes. So take advantage, send them their app back in torn pieces, maybe they'd like a law school rejection letter. If you're tired of being bombarded by their junk mail send them some too!

Welcome, welcome, one and all. I am so pleased to have you all here. I am the Sergeant-at-Arms, and I am responsible for your chalupas.  And if you despair, remember, there is always Guam Law, where their motto is:  "Guam Law--We Got Chalupas"

So, like I said in my most recent post, I just want to say goodbye to the club and wish you all goodluck!! I'm kinda sad about no one taking me up on my cucumber sandwiches...guess those chalupas are really kick ass. Let me know when you guys cross over. I wanna hear the good news! :)

Just got home. Checked my mailbox. Nothing there, as usual. Actually, that's not true. I got a very nice letter from the "First Edition Book Club."  It seems they will sell me a replica of the first edition of "The Sun Also Rises" for only $2.75.  I thought about it, but that's chalupa money, baby.  Welcome to all new members, and bon voyage to all old members.  I have a feeling I'm going to be here for a long time.

Excuse me all, but I think that I should definitely be president of this club, as I have been complete at ALL (that's right, all) my schools since at LEAST just before Christmas, some as early as the first week in November. So much for the January curse, huh??

Now THAT's dedication to the In at Nowhere club!!

I have no argument with that. As Sergeant-at-Arms, I hereby swear in legalkitty as President:

Do you solemnly swear to uphold the calues of the In At Nowhere club, pledge allegiance to Guam Law ("Guam Law--We Got Chalupas"), protect the interests of your fellow members by spinning plates while wearing a shrimp costume, and never, ever turn down a tasty Guam-style chalupa?

I do. And I will wear my shrimp costume at all times, day or night, and eat chalupas, Guam-style of course, for at least two of my three meals daily.

This is a great honor, and I will NOT let my people down by getting in somewhere.

Laneswerver-you are a true asset to my staff. What would I do without you?

You would have no chalupas.

Thank you, my subjects. Don't worry, with my numbers (and even though my WE and personal experiences are unique, I fear it's not enough), it is a real gamble. I am sure I will not be abandoning my people for quite some time, if ever. I will not let you done, chalupas and all!!!

Fellow Nowhere members:

We must form our budget (with whatever money is left over from applications) to allow for more chalupas!!  I am sure our president legalkitty and the Guam Congress will pass our Chalupa reform act!

She is proud to represent the Nowhere School of Law and excited about her chalupa benefits.

Good luck folks!

Chalupas, coming up.  I just spoke with the Congress of Guam by carrier pigeon. They (there are three members) refused to entertain the notion of repealing the Tamale Convention of 1973. They said that with increased competition from other non-Guam foods, e.g. enchiladas, the favorite food of Guam could be overshadowed.  They did tell me, however, that they would send me a fetid coconut in the mail.

They reminded me of the slogan of Guam Law:  "Guam Law--We Got Chalupas."

How could I argue with that?

OK, Club, I think I'm officially having a nervous breakdown. Do you know what I did today, other than call the Guam Congress? I found all the schools that had free applications and applied there. It's the middle of February, for Pete's sake, and I'm still applying to random places.

To top it all off, I think I OD'd on chalupas this afternoon.

Then, to top it all off, some jerk from the adcomm at the University of the Northern Marianas Islands School of Law sent me a rotten pineapple in the mail.

Give me strength.

I am in favor of Chalupa Reform!!! More chalupas for everyone!

And as a future animal rights attorney, I would be VERY PROUD to bring Mollie on staff. Welcome, Mollie!!!

Landswerver-I too, am having a nervous breakdown, although I will still be strong for my people. I am ALMOST longing for rejections at this point, just so I know they haven't forgotten me. And where the HELL is my rejection from NYLS? It's been 10 weeks, and not hearing is starting to give me false hope!! WTF??

Sorry about that little outburst everyone. To make up for it, I am declaring February 15th (my birthday) National Guam Chalupa Day. Everyone take the day off from work or school, don a shrimp costume, and dance in the street while eating Chalupas and shouting, "Long live the Chalupa!"

Heart-shaped chalupas for everyone today!

I did get a nice e-mail from the University of Tulsa today thanking me for my application. It was not even a form e-mail, or if it was, it had a typo in it and that doesn't bode well for the school.

I only applied because it was free...

I have been complete for so long, and now I am becoming paranoid that schools are going to lose my application or something. Or they are going to decide I am now not complete for some reason, but not tell me. I know that doesn't make much sense. Soon, I will also be president of the "in at the asylum club!"

Looking forward to the creation of The Asylum Club.  Instead of chalupas (sharp edges), we'll have cream of wheat.

Hello to all. Welcome new members. Heart-shaped chalupas all around, even for that guy who got accepted somewhere. (He'll have to pay $1, of course...they're Guam-style!)

I got an e-mail from Franklin Pierce that said my file was complete...as of 2/11. I should expect a decision within 6-8 weeks.  I tried hanging myself with a shoestring, but since I didn't have anything to tie it to, I failed.

Thanks for your support Matthies!  Where were you accepted last year and what ulitmately led to your decision to take a year off.  I am leaning in the direction of taking a few years off.  However, I have 4 years of very impressive paralegal experience already.  I suppose I could improve my LSAT, but my GPA isnt going to change.  I don't want to waste money on a Masters' program that wont really benefit me in the long run.  Bottom line, I don't really have much room for improvement and only time to loose.  I am willing to move anywhere this year, but if I work I believe I'll be limited to Georgia LS.

I do have a feeling that my first rejection may be coming soon though. My status on the UVA website changed and it now says a decision has been mailed.

Incidentally, in case you're in need, Bob's also makes turpentine. Remember their motto: "Bob's Turpentine--We Go Good With Chalupas."

The two bottles look eerily similar...

The only scotch we have in Guam is tape, and even that's pretty rare.

Bob's and chalupas, headed your way. I don't get home until 8 or 9 tonight, so my agony is stretched to the full.  If I wasn't at work, I'd have a shot of Bob's myself. If I worked in Guam, I wouldn't be allowed to work WITHOUT taking a shot of Bob's.

I don't think I could handle waiting till after work each night to check the mail.  My mom and dad are semi retired and all my mail goes to their house, so I just call them just after lunch and hope one of them is home.  I'm at work too, so I have to hide my bottle of Bob's in my desk drawer.  Luckily the chalupas are work safe.

I don't get to check it until I get home from work, either. But I am trying to find stuff to do after work so that I get home later and later. For instance, today I am staying late at work and then going to the mall, because whenever I rush home to check it, there is never anything there, and then I hurried home for nothing. At least this way I am little distracted for the time being. Pathetic!!

Can I join the club? My mailbox had nothing but fakeout envelopes today. I've seen people getting accepted the schools I applied to whose apps were complete after mine and who have lower numbers than me. It's really driving me insane. I'm starting to have nightmares about rejection letters.

Bienvenidos, JoAnna. Have a chalupa (Guam-style, of course) and a warm, refreshing glass of Bob's Whiskey ("Bob's Whiskey--We Go Good With Chalupas").

Legalkitty will don her shrimp costume at 7 o'clock sharp.

Ahhhhh, the whiskey makes it all better. Maybe it will help the nightmares.

Last night I had a dream that I got rejected from my safety school. They actually wrote me a letter stating that they couldn't accept me because of my LSAT and then they proceeded to tell me how I could get my 145 LSAT score higher next cycle.

This is rediculous - my score in real life is 162. In my dream, I knew this, and then I proceeded to try to find out why they thought my score was 145. I was calling the school and LSAC in a panic saying, "How can this be? YOU told me my score was 162!"

Ugh. I just need ONE LETTER to get me out of this helacious pergatory.

They will, but it'll probably be a Blondie tour shirt from 1980 that they salvaged from a dumpster. After it's been in that fetid coconut for 7,000 miles... well, actually, it might smell even better than Blondie at that point.

God, purgatory. That is exactly it. Even if it was my last choice, I'd be happy to get an acceptance letter. It would be SUCH A RELIEF!! BTW, JoAnna, welcome to the club. It sucks to be us!

I know, I know. Cocktail dress, cocktail sauce, I got confused. I mean, shrimp want to look nice, too. And I am sure we are all enjoying being in purgatory together, but truth be told, I think we'd gladly give up our spot for an acceptance into the pearly gates.

UCONN sent 12/23, Pace, Fordham, Quinnipiac sent 1/6 - complete everywhere - and still NOTHING!   Interviewed at Q last week.  Visiting Pace tomorrow for a tour.  I'm going to try and visit UCONN next week.  I have to admit I check Fordham's online status checker every 1/2 hour to see if it "changed" and it's all I can do not to stalk the admission people everywhere else.  Fortunately I'm swamped at work and my kids keep me pretty busy - but patience is not my strong suit.  Oh well - hopefully next week!

Ok guys, as a memeber of this club, I am really starting to worry.  :(

Most of my apps were sent in late december, complete beginning of January.

I have only heard from two schools (rejections) and I am guessing I was an auto reject.

I have a pretty big split (158/3.9).

Should I be concerned that I am not getting in anywhere?

I don't want to bring this up since I'm not in much of a position to say anything with my numbers, but I will anyway. Have you considered retaking the LSAT? If you bumped your average up to even a 151, you'd be in at 90% of your schools. You have a good uGPA...

So frustrating. I actually started out in practice with a 151 and the more I studied, the lower my score got. Like I started to overthink it or something. If I don't get in anywhere this year (and I PRAY this does not happen) I will take it again, but I REALLY don't want to.
I just suck at standardized tests. I got an 860 on my SAT. That should give you an idea. It is so annoying that that stupid test counts for more than who you are or how you did in undergrad.

I know I haven't yet heard any bad news from most of my schools, but I just wish I knew that it would work out, somewhere. Then I would be fine with waiting. It sucks!! >:(

Post by: LaneSwerver on February 17, 2005, 10:12:09 AM
I understand. It'll work out, though. I took the opposite approach from you. I had no idea what was on the LSAT. I had never seen a practice test, never spoken to anyone about it, and decided on a whim that I would take it. I didn't know it was timed. I didn't know it had a writing section. I was surprised! It was fun, though.  I decided I would get a much more honest view of myself that way. I should have put that in my PS.

Anyway, that sort of explains my score. Kind of stupid, considering my uGPA (which I also experimented with throughout college).  We'll end up somewhere, though. Never forget...there's always Guam.

Yeah, I thought about doing that, but the general consensus was that it would seem a little whiney. And actually, I intereviewed at Pace, and we talked about all about that, and the D of A gave me a good recommendation, and I still got dinged.

Incidentally, I noticed my LSDAS report to the Univeristy of Akorn went out today. I had to COMPLETELY reword my PS for these people to include my love of squirrels and how I plan to use that in the practice of law. Do you think it was to much to add that I also like to dig small holes around my yard and bury things? I hope I'm not whoring myself out...

Whore away. But I think you may want to reconsider Akron. It sounds like you will have to compromise quite a bit for them, when  Guam just wants you for who you are. Now, pass me another Chalupa!!

University of Akorn, Home of the Fighting Squirrels. Go, Fight, Scurry!

Remember their motto: "University of Akorn--We Got Squirrels"

Don't confuse this with the motto of Appalachian School of Law: "Appalachian School of Law--We Eat Squirrels"

Oh, then as a vegan, I would have to support the University of Akorn as opposed to Appalachian. I just sent my app in to them! Go, fight, scurry!! I promise to devote my JD to defending squirrels everywhere and their right to store food in their cheeks and make squeaking noises!! Long live the fluffy tailed mouse!

(Gulp) . . . Ahhhhhhhh (clunk) . . . another day without mail, and another swig of Bob's. Does the University of Akorn have a fee waiver? I think I'll apply there - I'm from upstate NY so I have extensive experience with squirrels. Now that I think about it I have extensive experience with squirrel roadkill, so Appalachian may be the place for me.

Lane Swerver and Legalkitty - I think you guys should just print this thread and send to all of your schools. This stuff is cracking me up; they should admitt you guys based on your whit alone!

Ah, if only wit were enough, Lane would be off to Harvard!

As for Akorn--instead of a fee waiver, they actually have a fee supplier, where they pay YOU to apply. The usual $50. All you have to do is demonstrate your love of squirrels, your committment to squirrel service, your projected squirrel-related goals after LS, and they will send you the cash. Good luck!

Glad to entertain. If I don't get into LS, I'm going to hang out on this board forever and make Guam and squirrel jokes.  Anyway, just got home, checked the mail...and I'm still in the club. I received a nice fake-out letter from Creighton (telling me my application was complete), a letter from Baylor (telling me my application was received), and a huge envelope from John Marshall telling me how diverse their school is. They already sent me viewbook, this is the diversity book. It made me feel warm, fuzzy, and then I threw up all over it.

Maybe tomorrow. Until then, another Bob's...  Incidentally, when did they start putting worms in whiskey?

Yes I like Bobs and since I'm entertaining the in-laws tonight - I'll start drinking now.  Is 9:15 too early to drink?  Not if you're a desperate housewife like me who's throwing two birthday parties for my six year old this weekend and one for my MIL.  (yes I'm an overachiever but hey - that's what I get for giving birth on MIL's birthday) - I'd say I'm the best daughter in law but I'm the only one so the competition isn't stiff.  Oh yeah - my twins are already down for a nap because quite frankly they wouldn't stop yelling at me on and one already bit my six year old so - off to clean the basement and playrooms - oh yeah I should do some work too today and ask me about my Pace and Quinnipiac interviews/tours - I won't post my thoughts for fear of lurking adcomms but if you want the real dirt IM me at mommyauthor.
OH AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD - FORDHAM UPDATE YOUR ONLINE STATUS CHECKER!

Well, I am going to my parents' house this weekend with my husband to celebrate my birthday. But what sucks for me is that my parents are less than thrilled with the idea of law school, so they probably won't ask about it, and I won't offer the information. I figure I will just deal with them when I get in somewhere. It's funny, when I first told them I was applying, they kind of gritted their teeth, and said, "Oh, okay." Not exactly a ringing endorsement. So I will be obsessing about it all weekend, but not able to say anything about it, or check the mail on Saturday. Now THAT'S rough!!

Laneswerver - that's where I'm lucky.  My inlaws never ask about law school.  They don't understand why I just don't get my teaching certificate because teaching is really the best job for a mother. They think this law school "thing" is a phase and so they say encouraging things like - "only apply where you can defer because there's no way you can go before the twins start school" or "my friend's grandmother whose son is a lawyer in Westport says women with kids never do well in school" or better yet "you know my uncle's brother's cousin's dog's previous owner went to school with my sister's sister in-law and she thinks you should teach."

Nice huh.

Yeah, I am sure my parents feel the same way--that they are hoping it is just a phase. They want me to get my master's in writing, that's what I do for my job now, but I am sure they'll get over it once I go to LS. As far as timing goes, it will never be a good time, you know? You've got to just do it when you are ready regardless of what else is going on in your life.

I have been accept to an ABA acreddited school much closer to my home (Guam IS quite a commute from Long Island). I will miss the chalupas and hourly swigs of Bob's Whiskey; but the 7pm pep rallies with legalkitty's shrimp costume will be my fondest memory.

Congratz on your acceptance to Grover Cleveland School of Law!!! I almost got in, but you know the numbers whores they are. Way to go.

You are, of course, now eligible for the In At Nowhere Alumni Association. For the very small donation of $10,000 we send you a (laminated) membership card, our twice a decade newsletter, and a tank top from Blondie's 1982 tour. Also, you're entitled to one heart-shaped chalupa on Valentine's Day, all the horse anus you can eat (not a big seller), a case (well, half a case because I drank some) of Bob's Whiskey (motto: "Bob's Whiskey--We Go Good With Chalupas") and a tetanus shot.

EDIT: I forgot--a letter from Baylor telling me my file was complete. HAHAHA...Baylor...I applied because it was free and they're Baptists, so I thought they might have some sympathy.

Well - mail call - nothing today.  Oh well.  Fordham didn't show me the love and update that status checker so that's rather discouraging.  I passed the white glove inlaw inspection, cooked a nice turkey breast stuffed with apple and cranberry stuffing, served very pretty appetizers (shrimp wrapped in pastry) and my MIL threw up.  She claims it's the flu - but who knows.  Kids are all in bed - I'm sitting here with my wine (no Bob's Whiskey in the house) and wishing I'd just made the fing chulapas for dinner.  Oh - Laneswerver, not to knock teachers (my in-laws are all working in school systems) - it is just not for me.  At all.  I love kids, my kids.  Spending all day with more kids would drive me bonkers.  Really, I don't know how teachers do it.  I know how hard it is for me to meet the academic needs of my six and seven year olds.  I could not imagine an entire class full of them.  My in-laws are very traditional and really think I should be home raising babies and only work while they're in school.  Not a bad thought - but hey, I've been home raising babies for seven years and by the time I'm out of school it will be eleven years.  Heck if I plan this right I can get my kids to work to pay off my student loans.....now that's a plan.

That's an entirely different kind of burnout you're talking about.  I've been blessed with healthy kids but I've done fair share of hosiptal stays (my daughter spent three days on an apnea monitor after a breathing episode and one of my twins recently had a bad bought of RSV).  The recent bought of RSV brought us to Yale NH Chidlren's Hospital and I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful place that is.  I have a close friend who is a Child Life Specialist and has five of her own children.  It takes very special people to work with sick kids and parents of sick kids.  I was a basket case leaving one baby in NICU (one twin came home with us but the other had some issues) and I can't imagine what parents of truly sick children go through.  That's really neat that you teach in that environment.

I really enjoy it; it has a lot of positive aspects, and as you can imagine, a lot of negative ones. However, I never planned to teach for my entire career...I just kind of fell into it. I don't regret it, but it isn't forever.

I'm in the same boat, though I am mostly sure my decision was a rejection (can't log onto admitted student's site). 
I've never cared so much about mail delivery in my life.  D*** holidays!  Can someone spare a bit of Bob's?

Sure :slides a shot down the bar: , I picked up a couple bottles since I knew it was going to be a long 2 days with no mail.  Better get some food in you before you have too much to drink, I recommend the chalupas.

Oh, yes, we got Bob's and chalupas. I was out of town over the weekend, so I didn't have the opportunity to update you on Saturday's mail: A gigantic catalog from an outdoor and shooting sports company, ANOTHER (this is now the third) postcard from Franklin Pierce telling me my application is complete, and a newspaper.  So, I'm still the proud Sergeant-at-Arms of the club. I drank so much Bob's this weekend I had to go to the hospital for lead poisoning, but I'm feeling much better now, thanks.

good to hear you're feeling better lane.  what would we do without your chalupas?  send one over here please, its gonna be a long day.  and make mine extra spicy, i'd rather focus on the burning pain in my mouth than check g'town's website again.   ;D

I was thinking that Bob could come up with some hot sauce to top the chalupas off with.  He could probably incorporate his liquor into the secret Guam recipe.

Their motto could be "Bob's Hot Sauce - We go good with chalupas."

Serve me up, baby.

It's funny you mention that, because as you know, Bob's also makes turpentine ("Bob's Turpentine--We Go Good With Chalupas"), but I understand a food spin-off division was planned. They started with Bob's Baby Seal Burgers ("Bob's Baby Seal Burgers--We Don't Give You Gas Like Chalupas") and followed up with Bob's Mercury-Rising Hot Sauce ("Bob's Mercury-Rising Hot Sauce--We Use Real Mercury"). Unfortunately, due to some technical problems with the procurement of baby seals and a bunch of lunatics storming the factory after eating the mercury, Bob's reverted to whisley and turpentine. One of the failed marketing ploys like New Coke, you know?

Any more chalupas left?  It looks like the only mail I'm getting is postcards from the University of Akron telling me for the fourth time that it's not too late to apply. :takes swig of Bob's and exits post:

Well it's official - I'm really still a member.  Fordham finally updated and I'm still complete.  Guess it's better than dinged - but really - I hate holding out hope for these reaches.  I'm starting to second guess my strategy of two safetys, two reaches and one ridiculous money wasting app.  I didn't bother with Cardozo or Brooklyn because quite frankly I don't want to commute to NYC 2 hours each way several days a week.  But I would do it for Fordham so that's why I applied.  Well now that my obsessing for the day has ended - time to get busy.

I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT:

There was an extremely large pile of mail in my mailbox today in addition to a pair of shoes I purchased on eBay on my porch. Rather than go through all of it with you, I figure I'll get to the (somewhat) important stuff. I was accepted to Florida Coastal today, with scholarship cash. I'm not really sure if this counts as an acceptance, since it ranks fairly low on my list of priorities, but it does now mean that I'll be going to law school in the Fall.

Of course, this means I must relinquish my duties as Sergeant-at-Arms and become the Sergeant-at-Arms Emeritus. It's a bittersweet transition for me. I can only hope that you will allow me to stay on, make chalupas, pour Bob's, and regale you with stories of Guam.  That is all.

To answer your question from another post (I forgot where it was), Mrs. LaneSwerver is a paramedic for one of the "finer" cities around Houston, but happens to make a shyteload more than most paramedics do. And she just started working there, and it'll be cheap for her to add me to her insurance, so, we'll have to be long distance for a little while if I have to move. And Mr. Xony? He raises weimeraners, yes?

I have heard that too, but I don't know how true it is. Maybe for some schools, but I have also heard people say that they got rejected in Feb. and their first acceptances didn't come until March (we like that story better, don't we?). Seriously though, some schools only just started admitting people. Plus, I figure as more and more people decline offers, the schools will start reaching into the pile of applicants again. But I know what you mean. I am trying to remain positive, but am starting to pee my pants a little.

That makes me feel better.  I'm trying to stay optimistic too but... if one more of my friends   tells me that if I don't get into law school this year I can always become a paralegal for a year and apply again...I think that I'll hit them in the face with a chalupa!

Yeah, I like that story a lot better, but I have zero patience.  I can handle waiting on USC and UCLA, but I'd like to hear something from someone else.

That sounds like a perfectly acceptable response to me; either that or Iím a raving lunatic too.
I was just talking to my sister on the phone and she asked what I'm going to do if I don't get in anywhere.  After thinking about it, I don't know what I'd do.  I have a least a couple decent job offers I could take, but I really don't want to do more engineering work.  Maybe I'll just become a bum for a year so I can improve my diversity and social economic disadvantage statements.

I hear ya. I have a great job that I plan on keeping through LS, but I am SO SICK of the people who say, "You have a great job. Don't be upset. So you have to put it off a year. So what." ARGHHH!!!! I am ready NOW!!

Hey, just had a thought. Maybe Lane's acceptance is a sign of good things to come for those of us devoted to this thread. Like, if you are an active member of the "In at Nowhere" club, and have eaten a substantial amount of chalupas and Bob's, you will get in SOMEWHERE. Sound good?

Sigh.  I'm still here.  Not that you guys aren't great company and all - really I like chalupa's and don't miss the martini's at all.  But....well you know.  I'd like to be in somewhere.  Please tell me there's hope for a housewife (okay I do have a paying job but it's primarily from home - marketing director for Toyota - my dad works there so I have 100% flexibility) but still!!!! Well tomorrow is another mail day.

It's beyond amazing...it's crazy. The decision letter was dated the same day as LSDAS sent my report to the school, so there is NO way they actually got the report unless they saw an electronic copy. I believe I was auto-admitted, crazy as that sounds. I'll take it, though.  It might have been the chalupas now that you mention it, though.

Good Morning!  It's another mail day!  I'm all chipper now - we'll see how I'm doing at three o'clock after the mail comes.  At least I've got projects to do - what's more fun than painting a bedroom while your four kids run loose - inviting a friend over with three more kids!  And there is laundry - lots and lots of laundry.  I envy all of you in nice office cubes. If you wanna know my life - watch Desperate Housewives - the only difference between me and Lynette - I have one daughter and three boys - including twin boys!  Ah well - off to watch Oswald and build a lego tower.

It's a famous quote, but I can't remember who said it, so I can't give proper credit. It rocks though, doesn't it?

Good morning to all of you as well!! I am still here, but at least I got a day off from getting rejections yesterday. It seems I am on an every-other-day cycle so we'll see what happens today. I was looking up Touro on LSN in part-time though, and if LSN generally respresents their most competitive applicants, I should be in pretty good shape, don't ya think? It's my last choice, but if I get in, I am sure I will learn to LOVE it. Who knows what will happen, though. Just trying to stay positive!! Good luck to all today!!!

As for the mail, I have been getting mail every other day for the last week. I got mail yesterday, so I probably won't get anything until tomorrow. Okay, I know that logic is hooey, but at least it keeps me calm for checking the mail today. :)

No, didn't apply, once I saw the word dry, I crossed it off the list.  I figure if I'm going to a bottom feeder school it had better be a wet one.

University of Akorn, Home of the Fighting Squirrels. Go, Fight, Scurry!

Remember their motto: "University of Akorn--We Got Squirrels"

Don't confuse this with the motto of Appalachian School of Law: "Appalachian School of Law--We Eat Squirrels"

This is pretty funny because an undergrad school in VA, I forget, its either Randolph Macon Women's College's or Mary Baldwin's (both women only institutions) mascot IS the fighting squirrel. I think its hilarious because its the one place there are certainly NO nuts.

Isn't it funny that Beaver College changed its name to Arcadia just because of the derogatory connotation? I live about a 1/2 mile from the school. I got into their grad program for writing, too, but sorry, I want to be a lawyer!!

Crackin' open a rusty bottle of Bob's over here.

I received an e-mail from the admissions office at St. Thomas U. in FL yesterday. Yes, they work on Sundays, oddly enough. Anyway, the guy told me a decision had been made and mailed and to expect it this week.  Way to make me nervous! This place isn't on the top of my list, but they rank above FL Coastal, so I'm a bit nervous.

The lead in Bob's will soothe my nerves.

Well, I am sure you are right that once I get in (see how optimistic I am being today!) I will definitely go through a "dreamy" period. I have all these things I want to do, like books I want to read and stuff like that, but I am afraid that if I do them before I get in I will jinx myself. Isn't that sooo stupid??

I'm still (somewhat) proudly a member of the subsidiary of this club, the In At Nowhere I Want To Go Club. Mail call today: Fake-out letter from the University of Tulsa telling me that, surprise, my file was complete. A copy of "Planet Law School II," a grocery store circular, the water bill, the gas bill, a postcard from Michigan State telling me why I should apply (they're diverse is the reason they give), and a postcard from Willamette saying they never received the signature page of my application. **sigh** I hate this.

I got a postcard from Willamette also, so I emailed the admissions staff.  The lady told me that they had some issues with a person they hired to help with the mailings, and that the wrong stuff went to people regarding those postcards. 

Unless you just didn't mail it.


If you did, then write them an email about it.

I know stuff has to start happening soon. My apps have been complete for a little over a month now. Someone has to respond. Most of them I don't even care about now...I just want this to be over. I'm making tear-shaped chalupas for everyone today so we can cry in our Bob's.

Hi all!

Weekly dose of inspirationÖ ITíS MARCH! March is good month for hearing from schools. Like I said before, 75% of my responses came in March last year, and this year
2 out 3 acceptances have come in the last 10 days, including one last night. Hang in there, news is on its way!

PS, even if you donít get in, or donít get into anyplace you really want to go there are options to improve your chances for next year; I am definitely the redheaded step child of law school applicants, if I can get in, so can you guys, donít loose hope or the dream!





i appreciate the good cheer and wishes.  

and i just want to say, i believe that wherever we all end up getting in (and going) is where we're meant to be.  sometimes we're all so concerned with the rankings or whatnot, and fail to see that regardless of what school we get into, we're all going to become lawyers.  which IS the dream.  at least for me.  

just my $.02

Don't say that. I like deluding myself into thinking I will hear something today/tomrrow/the day after. If I think I might be waiting until JULY, I might choke on the chalupa and drown in the fish-borsch.

I'm with ya on being pessimistic.  Some days I start off cheerful and then steadily decline throughout the day, others I start off in a bad mood.  Being pessimistic makes it easier to deal with disapointment.

Hang on to the job for now, it pays the bills.  Everyone where I work knows I'm leaving and every morning I walk to my office reciting, "I hate my job, I hate my job, I hate my job..."  So I know how you're feeling.  As soon as I have something concrete set up, I'm outta this place.

It's pretty hard to be a motivated worker when all I do is obsess over law school.  I spend my day waiting for 5 o'clock so that I can get the hell out of here and go home to check the mail (well, that plus playing Snood, but I digress).  Now apparently some schools are on spring break (already!), so the wait will be longer.

Do you think that includes the admissions department? Maybe they get a day or two off, but I would think they would work right on through.

I definitely have my ups and downs. Basically all I have left are schools I am really realistically (at least I think they are realistic) hoping for (well, not counting Temple), so I am all the more scared of impending doom. Until now, my rejections have been pretty expected, so it hasn't hurt quite as much.

If I am in line for more rejections (again, not counting Temple) I hope I get in somewhere first. Then I won't really even care!!!

I was in the same boat.  I was anxiously awaiting decisions from USC and UCLA, but I wasn't really concerned about the others.  Then I got waitlisted by Pepperdine and got scared.  Now, I'm nervous 24/7 waiting on an acceptance.  Had I got the WL from Pep. after an acceptance, I doubt I would have cared as much.  Pray you are accepted by a safety before getting ding/WL by one.  The opposite has devastating effects on the nerves.

Oh my God! A whole bunch of people who are as obsessed with their lack of acceptances as I am!!! This is fantastic!

I applied in MID-NOVEMBER, and have only heard from four of the nine schools I applied to. Three of them were rejections and one was a wait-list. I'm taking the fact that I haven't heard from the others as a good sign (as in, they're considering letting me in despite my LSAT score), but I wish they would just hurry up and decide already.

I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir here...

Atticus, I don't expect you to be staying too long.. so kindly give up your seat and go stand by the door.  Lane, your avatar is freaking me out..its like you aren't the same person anymore!! 

Oh, how rude of me to not have introduced myself.. I'm the sous-chef...today's (and everyday's) specialty is the exquisite fish borsch.  Bon appetit.

Yeah, Lane, I am sorry about that.  Got the WL from Pepperdine and drank a little too much Bob's.  They should put a warning label on the bottle about that.

Welcome to the club, try the chalupas.  And, here's your introductory shot of Bob's.
BTW, pessimistic views are most accepted here.  Act too cheerful and we might have to kick you out.  Pull up a chair and enjoy the wait.

I think the sheer delight in that last post of mine was in response to finding more people to female dog about this whole process with, as I think I've thoroughly alienated my friends with my neuroses. There's only so many times they can say "Oh, you'll get in eventually" to "I'm going to be living in a gutter next year because I stupidly overestimated my credentials and am not getting into law school." Now that it's March and I still got nothin', it's changed from "You'll get in" to "Er, um, everything always turns out okay?" before they bolt out the door of the room I'm in to avoid talking about it any more.  

It seems like everyone here also understands the (very real) possibility of being stuck at our miserable jobs for another year if a damn acceptance doesn't come soon. Well, being stuck at our miserable jobs or quitting and being unemployed. And having to move back in with the 'rents. Ain't this law school application process grand?

Thank you for the oh-so-kind welcome. I look forward to gorging myself on chalupas and ruining my liver with Bob's. *Is* there a warning label on the Bob's that warns against drinking too much? If there's not, we can start a frivilous class action law suit. If only that didn't require hiring a... lawyer. *weep*

looking at your stats and WE, you shouldn't be worried. you'll get in to at least a couple of  your schools, it's just a matter of time.  I have a 9th tier toilet GPA (2.12) and a decent LSAT (166), so I was really worried about getting dinged everywhere based on my GPA.  That being said, I'm still worried about being dinged everywhere else I applied.  I only applied to Mich St. because of a fee waiver and my said fear of being dinged everywhere due to my GPA, so I really hope I get into at least one more school.

Just be patient htrus, you'll get in somewhere.

Nothing. I got a book called "The Law School Trip" that's supposed to be funny. A doctor bill, a viewbook from Florida Coastal in a giant white fake-out envelope (YOU ALREADY ACCEPTED ME!!!!!) and this month's Foreign Affairs. I drove over my mailbox with my truck, and it felt good.

Friday mail call acceptance to Mich St. (sigh) I'd prefer it over Widener but it's a lot of money to shell out for a 4th tier school. Plus they need a deposit by the end of the month. I guess it's nice to have options.

On a positive note everyone perk up I've recieved three decisions in the last week and all of my apps were early Jan. Meaning this club should have a long alumni list in the next few weeks.

God, let's hope so. I'm actually camped out next to my mailbox right now. I'm beginning to think my mail lady has it in for me, so when she comes today, if there are no letters from LS, good or bad, I'm going to get into her little mail truck and start going through all the mail to find the ones she's hiding from me. Plus, if anything else looks good, I'll keep that, too.

STILL NOTHING.

I even rifled through her little truck...I couldn't find where she was hiding it. It was hard to maneuver in there what with all the empty beer bottles.

I did get a huge fake-out envelope from Quinnipiac. Very big, very white, very First-Class. Very full of yet another book telling me how great their programs are. Why do they do this? I can't understand what it taking so f*cking long.

Soup,

You were right. I got an acceptance letter from St. Mary's on Saturday. I still am waiting on a bunch of other decisions, so I do not know if I will attend. Even if I don't, they will hold a fond place in my heart, b/c they were the first.

Bad omen:

I just received an e-mail from Samford. They asked me about a question on my application that I know I answered--that is, whether I'd been on academic probation in college. I answered yes and offered an explanation on the original app (Lousy grades, duh. Went to community college, fixed them).  Anyway, they asked me to answer the question again and offer the explanation again.

Not a good sign, in my book.

The only thing I can guess is that there's some kind of discrepancy from what you submitted and what your school submitted.  Or you left something up to interpretation in the first addendum and their hoping you'll fill in the gap in a second one.

On a good note, at least you're not going right into the rejection pile.  Hopefully you re-answer the question to their liking and get in.  Good luck.

Let's hope. Maybe I confused academic probation with disciplinary probation on the original app...I have had no discipline problems, if you can believe that.

I am happy that it wasn't an auto-reject, though.

Or they lost your addendum. University of Baltimore did that to me. They lost my addendum about some classes I took after college that I didn't complete, and then they said that I never gave it them when I KNOW I did. So, I smiled and said I'd be "happy" to resend it, and did so along with my resume (again) and PS (again), just so there was no confusion about any of those either.

I agree with Boehmer--it at least means you are in the "maybe" pile. And they must REALLY be considering you if they bothered to call about it.

Have a Bobs and forget all your worries!

Finally some good news.  I have been accepted at the University of Colorado in Boulder ;D

Apparently good news does come in March, but the letter was dated Feb 23rd ???

I guess this means I am no longer a member of the club and I can't even claim "In at nowhere I want to attend" membership.  However, if everyone doesn't mind I may still remain as a lurker.

Here's a round of Bob's on me.

Yeah.  No love today.  Still a member of this sordid little cabal.  This must be something like being the fat kid when everyone's picking teams at recess.  Oh wait. I wasthe fat kid when everyone was picking teams at recess.

So instead of getting together loan applications and putting down deposits, I figure I'll continue writing inane blogs about this experience.

Hello All,
This is my official application to your club. I have been a closet reader for the last few weeks and now I feel that I need to join in. I am a non-traditional student ( that means Im old -35) so I am not suppose to be as obsessed with this as everyone else. See at my age, I am suppose to have paitence, being I am older an more mature. Well I am here to say thats a bunch of bull. I have showed all of the obsessive behaviors that every one here has. So it is with this, that I ask you to let me in. I promise that all though I honsetly have no ill thoughts for those who get accepted before I do (if I do); I promise that I will not throw around fluffy congradulations to those who will soon leave our ranks.I also promise not to brag if/ when I become an alumni to this prestigous club. I will post my trials and tribulaions for informational purposes only.

With that said please pour me one of those drinks if you so accept me in to your ranks.

In: Florida Coastal ( although I have no intention of going, hence my application to your club)
Out: None
Pending: Rutgers Camden, Rutgers Newark,Vilanova, Seton Hall, Temple, Widener, Hofstra.

Wow.

Big day in the mail today.

ACCEPTANCES: Appalachian School of Law; I guess it does pay to hump your cousin and have six fingers on each hand.

St. Thomas University (FL): My graduate school is the University of St. Thomas; imagine the confusion on my resume if I go to LS at St. Thomas University.

University of Toledo: I was accepted Part Time and Evening even though I applied to Full Time and Day. Do you think I checked the wrong box?

REJECTION: University of Akorn. I guess that means my little essay about squirrels in lieu of a personal statememnt was not taken well. Akron, Akorn...who knew?

However, all this being said, I'm still in at nowhere I really want to go. I want Houston, I need Houston, that is all.

Soup: I already live in Houston...I want to stay here. It's not really for my love of the place, mind you, but if I have to leave Houston, my wife has to stay behind, and I would not like that at all.

Xony: None of them are geographically pleasing. St. Thomas is appealing because of Miami, but FL Coastal blows them out of the water numbers-wise. Hard to say. The other probelm is with Toledo...they're a T2 school, but it's part-time. See my related thread on this and offer your advice.

I will take a bowl of fisch borsch to go, Xony.  Gotta get something done at this hell-hole job of mine.

We should come up with a Nowhere avatar.  It'll give us something to do besides going crazy.  Maybe if I get some free time later on, I'll try to come up with something.  Although Lane seems to be the creative one regarding avatars.

Hello everyone,
Well the mail once again led to nothing more consternation. I need to stop telling myself that today is the day. MSU's applications must be down because today I received a second fee waiver from them. You do not know how hard it is not to send the application, even though I do not think I would go. I just want to hear something from the schools I do want to attend.

Anyway, how was the fish soup?

I'm not really a member of the nowhere club but I was for a long time.
I've just been lurking in this clubhouse for a while.

I have a confession to make. I can't really tell the "real" schools (laneswerver) from the "fake" schools that are discussed in this club.

For instance, I thought Appalachian School of Law was fictional until I received a mailer from them. I mean it sounds kind of fake. But Puerto Rico is real too right? And Guam, that's fake ... am I right?
What about People's School of Law? That's a real school, huh (I visited the website)?

FL Coastal is still on the top of the heap. I might visit them and St. Thomas in mid-April (prior to deposits being due) if I don't get a TX acceptance. I still have high hopes for South Texas, though. Toledo would be great if it was full-time, but then again the city is such a hell-hole I would not be happy there.

It sure does. I am getting very scared.

As for Tori, I paid SOO MUCH but it is worth it because she is playing at the Kimmel Center (home to the Philadelphia Orchestra-awesome venue) and it will just be her and her piano. I am taking my sister, and because she is in nursing school and broke, and I am paying for both of us. Needless to say, I will probably have to work an extra shift on the corner to pay for it, but it will be worth it!!!!

Where have you been, Old Xony?

"I've been busy."

Oh really? Well, it's good to have you back.

"It's good to be back. Sorry about Creepy Xony."

That's OK. I'm glad to see that you aren't creepy.

"Thank you. I'm glad I'm not creepy, too."

OK, see you later!

"Bye. I'm cute."

Old Xony, can you help me with the creepy-faced dog?

"Yes, I can. I will spay her."

Oh really? How will you do that?

"With a rusty pair of pliers and some gasoline."

Oh, Old Xony, don't you think that's a little much?

"No. Don't you see how creepy that thing is?"

I do, but I don't like to hurt others.

"You're not. That's why I'm here."

Oh, well, OK.

First off...I love the new Xony avatar.  So ugly, it's almost cute.

And now, my unconventional conventionalists, here is my contribution to this morning's club activities.

Dear Mr. Admissions Officer:

We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice several months while waiting for your admission decision, but we think you're crazy for making us wait even longer while you decide who you think we are. You see us as you want to see us: in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a bitter worker, a smart-ass, a Snood champion, a chalupa/fish borsch addict, and a ďBobísĒ alcoholic. Does that answer your question?

Sincerely yours,
The Nowhere Club

Unfortunately I can't really help you much on the reps of the schools.... I don't know too much about either. However, I have been to both cities. I must say that I'd choose Miami. Jax is rather dirty (in my opinion), and the time that I've spent there lead me to believe that there's not much I would enjoy to do there. On the other hand, Miami, has TONS of stuff to do for just about everyone. I'm into (sport) rock climbing (yes, I know I'm in FL, but we do have indoor climbing gyms here) and Miami had quite a few gyms I liked. Of course, there's the beaches, SCUBA diving, bars, clubs, and if you are in the market, its definitely (a) hottie capital of the universe.

I get the feeling that schools are playing games. For example I received an email from Vermont today( a school I did not apply to) sending me a fee waiver and inviting me to apply. The email stated that they are still excepting applications even though their "deadline" has come and gone. So if schools accross the board are dooing this kind of nonsense, trying to get their numbers up or whatever, it stinks for those of us who are in that "maybe" pile for the schools we have applied to.

I read somewhere else on this board that Temple is doing the same kind of thing, so I guess Im in the way out pile over there.

Anyway, I just wanted to vent, now it's on to Bob's and chalupas. Maybe Ill wait for the sadistic mailman before I start drinking.

I hear you man... It's eff'n wrong. I mean, we apply, they consider, they essentially apply (hopefully) to us, then we decide. Factor in all the deadlines which vary widely, the waiting, the different requirements for statements + supplemental, the 41 different fees associated with applications, stamps, emails, websites, and DAMN that's a lot of sheeet to put up with just to get a deferral (is that worse than a rejection?). This process leaves a lot to be desired... I guess part of the deal it to filter out those who are not serious about it... But whatever.

The more I think about it, the more I think you should not shoot at the mailman. It dawned on me that he very likely has more firepower than you do, and your little shiny suit probably won't protect you from the rocket launcher built into his truck.

Ok, I think it is a conspiricy

1- my mail man has it out for me and he is holding all the accpetances until the deadline for seat deposits. He could be working alone and storing the letters in the book Suppository.After all I know he is communist who is an ex-marine.

2- the entire USPS could be working against me because they do not want my kind to go to law school. So when ever they get an acceptance letter they hide it in the grassy noll.

either way my point is the mail contained no news again today. At least we have kitty to drink to. and there is always guam, or in my case FCSL

LEGALKITTY:

DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH THIS CLUB???????????

Thank you.

Yeah she doesn't like this thread anymore now that she's a big shot law-Yer-Liek.

Robo: I agree... They must be holding mine as well. I received nothing in the mail today.

I'm terrified my mail ended up somewhere else, I received mail for someone on another street today.  This is not the first time either!  I'm afraid to say something for fear of retribution.

YK,
I knew I was right...those damned mail carriers. They are just mad because they have to work outside in the rain and snow and heat, etc.....

LADK,
I think I just posted a message for you at LSN. I noticed that our stats were the same and we applied to the same schools....

Where is legalkitty? has she dumped us already?

Robocop,

I called Temple today and they said that since I am on "the borderline", it will take a while longer to decide on my app.  Big surprise.  You can probably bet you're in the same boat.

I got into Widener, but no fin aid, so it's simply not doable.

Haven't heard from anywhere else yet.

Good luck....

What are your stats?  I am very nervous, Temple is the school I was realistically reaching for...supposedly I have a 30% probability and my index is 168.3.

Post by: robocop1840 on March 10, 2005, 06:37:24 PM
YK,
LADK is a 154/3.95 I think his Temple index is 169.8. My temple index is 169.4. So we are all right there in the same boat. But I read somewhere else on this board that Temple was email some applicants to write a essay about how much they want to go there. All there numbers were higher than ours. I guess they are trying to gauge how many with better numbers are going to commit before deciding on us.

Just a theory

When did you apply?  I applied in January, I guess that was too late.  This waiting truely sucks! 

 LADK, call Widener and ask them for assistance, with a GPA like that and that LSAT, others with lower stats have been getting scholarships, check out lawschoolnumber.com.

YK,
If you look at Temple's index it seems that they favor GPA more than most schools, that is a posative for the both of us. But I don't know maybe im just looking through rose colored glasses.

Thanks for the info Robocop!  I had to sign off last night, I was getting anxious.  Temple's index seems to indicate that they do favor GPA, but when you calculate your admission probabilities compared to last year's numbers (in the resource section of LSN) the higher the LSAT the higher the probability of your acceptance.  For example, people who have a lower index than we do, when you plug in their numbers into the admission calculator, they have a higher probability.

I am SO SORRY I did not write on this thread sooner, it's just...well, it is awfully hard to say goodbye. I am in for Widener's Trial Admissions Program, and since being a student is what I actually DO do well, I should have no problems getting the required 2.3 (now, if TAP included another LSAT, then I'd be in trouble!!).

But alas, I will not leave the club because I just can't. Just call me Head of Alumni Relations for the In At Nowhere Club and then I never have to leave.

But to make up for my transgression: Chalupas and Bobs on me ALL DAY!!!  :-*

"your file is complete and waiting to be reviewed.
Due to a 40% increase in application volume the Admissions Committee is
working hard to achieve the goal of selecting the best class possible. Most
students will receive notification by the end of March"

I guess I can stop stalking the mailman since I have yet to have been even looked at.

I better start considering FCSL.....

Very disapointing.....

Nothing wrong with FL Coastal, Robo. I might be right there with you. Can't beat their numbers! 4% acceptance rate is pretty cool, not to mention the higher than average bar pass rate.

Congratulations legalkitty, TAP is extremely hard.  I know a guy that had a 4.0 undergrad GPA and a 3.9 masters GPA and didn't make it through TAP.  If you need help with anything, my undergrad is in Paralegal Studies and I would be happy to help.  I don't know if you saw the suggested reading list on Widener's website, but I really would suggest "A Civil Action" by Jonathan Harr.

I did change my avitar, but only until I can get other cat's picture on it, one that isn't so close to lk's.

Thanks for the info and the support! I didn't realize they had a reading list on their site, but I will check it out. And I actually read "A Civil Action" a few years ago, but maybe I will reread it.

I am sure it is hard, but I am just going to do whatever I have to to get through that month. I will keep telling myself, "It's only a month, it's only a month!"

Did your friend not finish, or not get the 2.3??
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: YankyKitten on March 11, 2005, 10:30:38 AM
My friend was not able to get the 2.3, and he was not alone.  I came to know him because he started taking some of my paralegal classes to get a certificate and to help him through the next time he applies. He warned me about the LSAT and the admissions process.  He has to wait two years before he can apply again.

The dean of my school, who actually wrote one of my letters of recommendation, is one of the people who started TAP, she says whoever makes it through TAP are the ones who get the higher grades as a 1L.  She also has told me that people who go to ivy league schools try to get into the program, because it is such a good prep for law school.  So, one good thing is that you will be that much more prepared than the rest of us.  I only offered my help because the people who go through the paralegal program at Widener, like myself, tend to do well in TAP, again, according to my dean.  I asked a lot of questions about the program, because, well I have a 149 LSAT following me.

I know you will do well; just be prepared for it to be one of the hardest things you have ever done.

Matthies-
Thanks for the words of encouragment. I am a little nervous about it, but I have never been afraid of hard work, and for some ridiculous reason, I love the law. I know we are both going to do great!!

I am enjoying the flat screen quite a bit thus far. However, I am getting a headache and I don't know whether to attribute it to this new monitor or all the lead in the Bob's. Hard to say. It does take up quite a bit less space than the old one, though.

I just want to say that you WILL accomplish what you need to accomplish with the TAP program. No doubt about it.

Good luck with everything. If you ever come to California let me know so we can have a club convention.

Hello All,
Last two days have brought the usual result, NOTHING!!!!!
Although the only people I expect to hear from soon is Widener, since Rutgers Camden has not even looked at my file yet, temple is asking for commitments from the higher LSAT's, and Villanova won't return an email....

I was watching college basketball today and boy do I understand how all these teams hoping to get into the big tournament feel. The TV guys remind me of us, all sitting around talking about who should get in with their numbers, all speculation, none of them really knows. In the end a group of people in a room detached from it all make the final decissions.

Anyway, it's Saturday, no mail for a couple of days, I need some Bob's. I gonna hold off on the chalupsa though, I think I got a bad batch last time...whoaaa baby.....it was bad.

I would feel much better if this whole process was over. I just need to hear from the TX schools so I can move along with my life.

Lane, I bet if you studied some more you could get a higher score on that god foresaken test.  Have you considered deferring LS for 1 yr, if worst comes to worst and you don't get in TX?
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: LaneSwerver on March 14, 2005, 08:01:55 AM
If I would have studied at all, you mean.

Nah, I'm not going to defer. I don't want to work here anymore. I need to do something else. I'm going somewhere in the fall, I'd just like to know whether I'm moving or not.

Screw that test...my score is more accurate than most as to my true aptitude, in my opinion. If I don't get into a TX school, then it's because my own aptitude is lacking.

Good morning all, it's another mail day and for me this week is the beginning of spring break! (Yeah I'm still doing some undergrad work). I just popped in to say decisions are still coming in hot and heavy, was accepted to Gonzaga over the weekend. So i'm in at all of my safeties and still at the in at nowhere I want I want to go club.

Also none of your weekend's could have been as bad as mine. I ran a marathon in Pheonix on sunday and the temperatures reached the upper 80's. Despite chugging gatorade like it was Bob's I got charley horses up and down my legs. I basically had to crawl the last few miles. Well I guess it wasn't as painful as all of this waiting but you get the idea......

Post by: LaneSwerver on March 14, 2005, 09:04:47 AM
You should have been chugging Bob's instead of Gatorade...guaranteed to help you win marathons!  I think they had an ad campaign about that at some point (Bob's Whiskey--We Go Good With Chalupas and Help You Win Marathons").

Gonzaga is a funny word. I like to say that. Gonzaga. Gonzaga. It reminds me of the muppet with the long nose. Gonzaga.

Gonzaga!

I actually had a student today, but he left.

Now I'm just sitting here drooling on myself, checking my e-mail every five minutes, hoping for a response from UALR to answer my mystery letter.

I expect litle though.

Wheres the Bob's

Yanky, sorry to hear that...We are so similar that I need you to have good news

Post by: robocop1840 on March 14, 2005, 01:02:34 PM
Well the mail man today broke his trend and brought news for a change.

I was accepted to Widener DE today, Although not my first choice, it is definately a school I would attend. This then makes me an alumini to this prestigous club.

However with the permission of the board of directors of this club I would like to be involved until this whole admission process comes to an end.

Thant being said the Bobs's and chalupas are on me.


On a second note, does anyone know if scholarship money offers from Widener come with the initial acceptance letter, or does it come with the financial aid package they said I would receieve in a few weeks?

I was hoping for some money from Widener.
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: YankyKitten on March 14, 2005, 01:17:00 PM
Congratulations robocop!  Widener typically sends their money info in the initial package; however, you can call them and negotiate because I know that not everyone that is receiveing money will be attending.  For ex. rarity on lsn.

That said, my scholarship info from Widener invited me to apply for their Presidential Scholarship, which is a full ride including books.  Only the letter to apply was in with the acceptance.  Hey, you and I might be going to school together!  That is if I can't find a way to swing Hofstra.

Post by: robocop1840 on March 14, 2005, 01:29:38 PM
Cool, I needed a new key chain.

I am going to need to get some money from Widener, since they are one of the more expensive low teir schools with tuition and fees at $26,800 that leaves me with a $8300 a year bill after Federal Loans. I guess I would need private loans. Hmmm . Well I guess I will wait and see what their Financial aid package says before I worry about that.

Thanx again everyone for letting me continue to hang around. Now I can worry about Rutgers Camden, but atleast I know I have somewhere to go.

Kitty, that would be pretty neat to actually attend with someone who I commiserated with on this board. Are you going to the open house in April?

WTF is taking so long??!!  I've been complete since October at Roger Williams, W & L, NESL, and Albany and have heard NOTHING!!!  Albany is the only one I'm still considering, but hurry the F up!

This is getting ridiculous.  Each passing day detracts from my already dying will to live.

My thought is that no more acceptances are on the horizon this year.  Think about it, if schools want to avoi yield protection, why would a school send an acceptance at a time when seat deposits are becoming due?  Sad to admit, but it looks like I am going to lose this cycle.

Any thoughts on the possibility of acceptances this late?

I don't know what could possibly be taking them that long with you ap, aside from they really want to accept you, but something is holding them back.  Why not send a letter of continued interest that also states any changes since your ap, maybe a raise you could mention or something you accomplished at work or school and how that would make you a better law student than the next guy?  You don't have anything to lose. 

At least with me, I applied late, so I only have myself to blame for not hearing anything yet.

I know we will all be hearing good news this week, I just have that feeling.  I am sending extra special good vibes your way.

Wow.  You are the best YankyKitten.  Thanks for the advice too, however I already sent an update letter to all schools when I recieved last semesters GPA, about 1 full point higher than my cummulative, also mentioning other work and EC matters.

I again sent Albany an email, expressing continued interest on 3/1/05.

All I can do now is wait.  Any more letters from me and they'll throw up.

**Fade in Notre Dame Victory March**

Something will work out. Remember, acceptances do come after seat deposits are due--lots of people choose not to place their deposits, and that's when things start flying. When the schools are faced with the potential of open seats, they start filling them.

South Texas told me that some of their decisions come as late as May! I know it sucks, I'm right here with ya, but don't lose hope.

Go out there and win one for the Gipper!

Well, I just got home and checked my mail to find...the usual stack of junk and nothing from a law school. That's not entirely true. I got a fee waiver from Kwinnypyack and a financial aid letter from Toledo telling me to accept or die. Other than that, nothing. See, coach, I was just so excited because last Monday I had four law school letters, and this week, nada.  It makes me want to hurt others, coach.  What to do?

ANYWAY, i can't take it anymore and HAD to post.  I've applied to 8 schools before thanksgiving and have yet to here from any of them
(except one, Florida Coastal, and i really don't wanna move to FL).  I've been trying my hardest to stay positive but i'm really starting to break down and lose my mind.  I have a 3.05 and a 151 as well as worked Full time throughout school, was very active on campus, blah blah.. I'm so afraid i won't get in anywhere but appreciate knowing that there are others (few, but some) out there like me so i figured i should let you know i'm in the same position.  Good luck to everyone and HOPEFULLY we all here something very, very soon... and i really hope that "something" is GOOD NEWS!

I was thinking of deferring my acceptance to Hofstra for one year while I retake the LSAT and apply to Temple again, but earlier.  That way, at the very least, I could save some money for Hofstra, I still love the school.  What do you think, a win/win situation?

I have two totally irrelevant comments (still not in anywhere, btw!):

1) Whenever anyone on this board says the phrase "third tier toilet", it makes me giggle like a 5-year-old. Especially when people aren't referring to law schools.

Yanky,
you were in my neck of the woods today. Did you know that Brigintine NJ is the windiest city in the US. I am full of useless facts like that. I should have listed that as an EC on my apps. "full of useless knowledge"

BTW- I finaly received a response from an email I sent to Villanova two weeks ago. They botherede to use two whole words to answer my question "file complete" It sounds like their admin office is warm and fuzzy.

Legallady
I use this board, specifically this group to vent my frustraions and morn with others who feel my pains. I do not think any of us know eneough about this process to give knowlegable advice. It is fun though to formulate theories of what these adcoms are actually doing....it helps pass the time while I wait for my future to be decided.

They are not fake satellite children, Lane.  They're sad little paper children, trapped in a two dimensional world with advertisements strapped to their backs.  Their only wish is to be seen by mailbox commandos like you.

I have two totally irrelevant comments (still not in anywhere, btw!):

1) Whenever anyone on this board says the phrase "third tier toilet", it makes me giggle like a 5-year-old. Especially when people aren't referring to law schools.

2) I was talking to my younger brother about some advice someone posted in another thread, and he referred to LSD as "the blind leading the blind." I think for the most part the advice people give is good, but the kid's got a point.

I am surprised your posting went unnoticed.  You make 2 great comments.  I flopped my jelly-roll with comment 1. 
Kudos to the kid, he makes a great point for comment 2.  Something to add, nervous folks create a nervous environment.

Yanky,
I was the Po Po in No. Va ( Alexandria PD) I now live back in S. Jersey where I grew up (Absecon)It's acutually I good thing I came back to NJ cuz I was gonna go part time while I continued to work for the PD and apply to George Mason. However, there numbers have gone through the roof in the last couple of years and I would not have stood a chance of getting in their.

LETS GO RUTGERS CAMDEN.......you need a 35 yo w/m father of 4 to fill out your diversity profile...NON_TRADS rule.

The Po Po huh, I lived in VA for a while, Winchester, kept going into Alexandria for work when finally I wised up and said, hell if I wanted to deal with this mess every day, why not move back home to Philly? 

Absecon is much better than Alex..., you can go more than 10 miles an hour on the highways. ;D

Yanky,
I agree Absecon much better..work you say...did you spend much time at the fine establishments at the lower end of king Street?

Actually it was a great city to work in..I worked mostly midnights so the traffic was not much of an issue, and I would only live inside the beltway cuz there is no way I could deal withthat commuter traffic. Winchester,hmm did you come into the city via Rt 50 or 66...either way that an awful commute...nice place to live though winchester that is.. Alex was to crowded.....

I have a god reputatin and relationship with the Commonwealth's Attorney's Ofice in Alex. Im almost gauranteed a job in the Ca's office when I graduate LS if I want it...but I think I am going to stay in NJ....besides I think I am done with crim law... I want to make a little more money...

I would formally withdraw, but I'd like to make a comment about Dean's Certifications.  To me, applying to LS is a personal matter, I didn't even tell my family where I was applying.  The fact that you can keep your letters general is something I like, because whether or not you are astute enough for law school is really the question, not whether you are right for a certain law school, that is really for the ad comm unless there is some connnections b/w you, or the prof. and that particular school.  I specifically didn't apply to some schools because they required this.  Oh and I didn't apply to some schools that wanted a member of the clergy to attest to my religious background, even though I was given fee waivers.

LaneSwerver... "Can I take something out for you?"

I would call them, but don't expect any efficiency.  They do guarantee a decision within six weeks of a completed file, so maybe they are not requesting it because they know they can't fulfill that obligation.

robocop, I didn't sign a master's promisary note with widener until august when I got there for undergrad.  I would wait because, I was also accepted to another school, which I should have went to, and it took a little paperwork to staighten out the fin aid.

NotToBright, Wilm. a great place!  Plenty of things to do there.  There is a mall next door, about a dozen eating places within a mile of the school.  Most 1Ls go to scrimages (bar) next door.  Plus, the wonderful Philly is right up the road, where you have a lot of culture and night life.

Whats up with that?

No worries. I know that guy; he meant it in the nicest way possible!

Well, hard to say. I'm trying not to judge the whole school on the ten minute cursory tour, but since that's all I have, it's tough. Maybe I can make a better decision after a couple more acceptances and a visit to the FL schools.

No. I got an auto-reply from them saying my message had been forwarded to the appropriate staff member, but I still haven't heard back. I guess I'll hear eventually. They might be on Spring Break; I'm not sure.

It is official, I have put in our order from the mailman for:

  LaneSwerver-U.of Houston or South Texas
  Whygohome-Case
  myself-Penn or Temple
They said no problem, they will deliver the mail they have been holding out for us.  Apparently the only fun they have is watching potential law students squirm.

Ok, this kinda of stuff is just not right this time of year.

I look out the front window to see my mailbox overflowing with a big white envelope. Thinking about Yankykitten's post earlier today I figure the mail man has taken her payoff and has delivered my Rutgers Camden acceptance.  After running break neck speed to the mailbox, like a school girl searching for her first love letter, I find an unsolicited application package from Maine Law School wrapped disturbingly similar to my Widener acceptance envelope.

That is just flat out wrong.

Oh well...I hope everyone else fares batter today, dammn I wish I was Irish, maybe that darn leprechaun would have been nicer to me today.

I have class until then. I just got home. No mail, of course. A very large envelope from the graduate program I'm finishing this semester telling me about all the wonders of their course offerings over the summer and the fall. Thanks for that nice fake-out. Also, a letter from the Postal Commemorative Society. I'm so angry with the postal service the only way I'm going to commemorate them is by murdering my mail lady, stuffing her, and standing her up in the corner of my living room.

Thank you. That is all.

To kill the mailman or to torture him, that is the question.  I have had a perfectly rotten day that started with the mail.  At least I can read these posts and get a good laugh.  See, robocop, you are not laughing alone :D

Not nice to say about the mailman. He probably reads Spanish...that's probably all he reads and THAT's why we haven't received our mail.

I'd like to live in the casino; I guess you could call it work that I do. I used to play blackjack semi-professionally, you could say. I paid for a great deal of my undergrad through blackjack. Fun game, that.

No, I didn't know Nick. I went through a phase where I wanted to be a poker dealer for a long time. I'm still in that phase a bit, but not so much now that everyone thinks they're some kind of poker expert. I was playing LONG before any of these dumbasses sat down at a table. That's the only game I'd deal...blackjack is too dull, I'd f*ck up craps if I dealt it, even though I know how to play it...all the others are just silly.

Baccarat's a cool game...I don't like mini, though. I like to touch the cards. I used to play craps exclusively--bet the don't, so no one liked me. That was when I started going to Vegas (age 17) and was ignorant. Then I learned how to count blackjack. I learned to count it really, really well. I always played downtown where the dealers weren't quite as sharp and didn't pick up on things as easily. Naturally, when the boss walked by, I'd make a dumb mistake in front of him/her. I'd give enough back to make it look good, but I managed to pay for a lot of college with those trips! Fun times.

Hey, is Texas Southern a realy awful school?

I noticed they were one of the few texas schools you did not apply to. I wanted to apply to Texas Tech but missed the deadline. I think I would like to live in texas. I went to Dallas once and fell in love with the city and the people, it was amazing how different the people are from the North East.

Funny, a lot of people who visit TX say the same thing. That's why we have so many ex-pats from the rest of the country here. They're the ones with the bumper stickers that say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!"

Texas Southern is a dump, to answer your question. For many, many reasons.

South Texas is a great school, and the University of Houston is a Tier 2 school. You have three choices in the city of Houston. Texas Wesleyan is in Fort Worth, and it's a pretty good school, too. They're very new, but already getting highly selective.

It's a great place to live. Plenty to do, all climates for your taste, beaches, mountains, hills, etc. I really am dreading the fact that I might have to move away for three years!

Post by: LaneSwerver on March 17, 2005, 10:13:14 PM
I think it depends on what you want to do. I think they'll give precedence to someone from a TX law school before an out-of-state law school in most cases, Texas Southern excluded. If you want a smaller firm, government work, or to hang out your own shingle, you'll have no problems.

Cost of living is great here, with the exception of Austin, so even if you ahd to take a lower-paying job for a couple of years, it wouldn't be a big deal. When I taught in public schools here, I was making ~40k/year and that will get you a LONG way here, believe me.

Anyway, we are Jersey born and we truly love it here in S. Jersey, its just getting so exspensive and so crowded that we are thinking about relocating after LS and Texas is first on our list. I want to live rural but work in a city. I want a peice of land though that is big,plenty of room for the little robocops to runaround with out worying about them....

Anyway eneough about my life dreams...
 Thanks for the info...the Texas department of tourism would be proud of you.

PS.did I mention im a Cowboys fan, always have been since I was a kid, thats why I was in Dallas, I had to go to the holly land.  How bout them Cowboys???

Next time you come to visit, head a little further south and a bit more central to the Hill Country. Fredericksburg, Medina, Bandera, even New Braunfels. Get you a piece of land out there, commute in to San Antonio, and you'll be set. I'm serious--once you visit the Hill Country, you'll never want to go anywhere else! It's the best.

I get kickbacks from the government everytime I recruit a new resident...hey, I work for the state!

Dallas is OK, but check out the rest. You'll be sold. We even take people from Jersey here; that's how cool we are!

I must confess that I've only visited your fine state once, and that was the city of Newark. I was told not to judge the entire state on that visit, and I don't. I just have to say Newark was a bit...bleak.

The Cows, as my dad calls them. We'll see what they can do this year. What I would give to have Mr. Landry back.

Well, I'm out for the night. Actually, won't be here tomorrow or Saturday, either. Have a good weekend, everyone!

This morning I am faced with one those moments in life that tend to put things into perspective. I am not sure if this is the forum for this but I feel as though I must share this with my fellow club members.

Today instead of waiting for the mailman, I am preparing to go to a funeral. The funeral is for a 13 year schoolmate of my son. Her name was Shelby Richter, and after the events of the last couple of months I am convinced that she is an ANGEL.

Shelby was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer a few months ago and since then has touched the lives of so many people who have rallied behind her battle with the disease. Shelby personified the ďAll American KidĒ She was a cheerleader and an athlete who had many many friends. She was always smiling, always polite, and thought of others more than she thought of her self.

Shelbyís courage and strength united a community. She reminded us of the importance of our neighbors, and helped us to realize that we all need one another. She helped us remember how important friends and family are in our lives and brought us all closer together. Her smile and zest for living taught us to cherish life. Through her eyes we were reminded how precious every little moment is. She helped us realize that we can not let life get in the way of living. She taught us to make time for the one you love, and love every minute you spend with them.

I am sad that she is gone. I am sad for her family, for her friends, and for all of those whose lives she touched. However, I am not sad for her, since I hope she is now in a better place.

So today put a splash of pink in your wardrobe, Shelbyís favorite color, to remember all of those who touched our lives but are no longer here. Make sure you give an extra hug to those who you love, and make the time today to tell them you love them.

Even though getting into a law school of my choice is very important to me, today I am just happy to have had the opportunity to be in the process.

Thank you for reading this post. If it was inappropriate here I apologize.

Wow. Thanks for sharing that, Robocop. I didn't find it inappropriate at all that you posted that here... it really does put this whole silly process we're going through into perspective. Instead of griping about the fact that I don't know what my future looks like, I'll try and spend the day being thankful that I have a shot at living to see my future.

Leave me your email address on LSN (the hidden way where no one will see it) and I will tell you my true feelings.  I've written too much stuff on this board that is identifying, and I wouldn't want to answer that question truthfully on a public board.

I just read your other post robocop, I am so sorry. I had three people in my family (only one close) die over the past two weeks, so I can really empathize.  It does put things into perspective.

There was a couple of other threads that talked about your question. There was no answer that could be agreed upon with half of the posters saying anything to come would not be acceptances. The other half felt that no news was good news and more acceptances were still to come.I do not know what to believe, and I know far to little to speculate. I try and watch the numbers on LSN and even then there is no real rhyme or reason to whats to come that I can figure out. I honestly do not believe that all acceptances have been sent. If that was the case I think we would have heard something, waitlist or rejection. I just think we are on the bubble and they are reading everything before deciding.

The good news is we are awsome!!!! So there are at least one more acceptance heading our way. Temple for you, Rutgers Camden for me. And everyone elses first choice in our club.

News for the first time in over a month! I was waitlisted at Fordham. It's starting to look like this process will be dragged out until July or August...  :-[

YankyKitten -- I'll keep on hoping if you will!!!

Well the ding from WVU today has officially crushed by LS dreams.  Still somewhat considering Albany but their AAMPLE program deposit is due monday, so I'm expecting a rejection.  NOTE TO SELF: Start sending out resumes on Monday!

Good Luck to the rest of you.

Thank you so much! You and robocop are right, they would have sent out rejections if they weren't still considering us, I just needed reassurance.  My husband has been gone all week and it has been lonely, and there has been no one to support me when I get doubtful.  I will keep hoping! ;D

Hello, everyone. Just got back into town...two days worth of mail in the mailbox, and what do we find? Nothing, of course. Are we surprised? Of course not.

Robocop--I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. I work in a pediatric cancer hospital. I think that's probably all I need to say.

I'm not married, but I have a bf.  We are just starting the process of deciding what to do about when I leave.  I'm pretty sure the rejection is in the mail.

Boyfriend,

After 2 satisfying years of blissful relationship, and careful consideration of your file, I regret to inform you that I will not be offering you a position in my future. I realize that your current factors are not indicative of your potential as a boyfriend and urge you to apply again for the position of Blake840's boyfriend after a year as a transfer boyfriend (1B).  I wish you luck in your dating process.

Sincerely,

Blake840

William Mitchell in St. Paul.  I would never have thought about applying there, but I have been in touch with a couple of attorneys who went there and they loved it.  They had so many complementary things to say about the program and the faculty.  It appears as though the school really tries to work with you and your schedule.  I think this is especially important for people who are coming from non-trad backgrounds.  If I remember correctly, they have a fantastic flexible scheduling program (3 different schedules for students: full time day, afternoon-ish program and evening program). They also have a great alumni mentoring program.  At least I know I can make a decision now! :)  Hopefully the rest of the decisions will start flowing in soon!

I think it is pretty funny that I was lamenting about my application status and then half an hour later I opened the mail and an acceptance was there!  I figured it was more junk mail.  ;D

I do want to go to Widener, although I am peeing myself about the TAP. And where is my acceptance/rejection from Touro? I have been complete since November!! And when I contacted them, they sent me this generic email, saying my app was in committee and I should hear something in 6-8 weeks. Judging from LSN, it looks like they have hardly admitted/rejected anybody!

No way, I say keep 'em coming. I'm well on my way to becoming a rejection letter connoisseur. With all of the variety, we'll soon be able to use rejection letter language in all kinds of helpful situations (such as Blake840's letter to her boyfriend). Think of the possibilities!

ALDF is the Animal Legal Defense Fund--a non-profit group of lawyers who mainly prosecute animal cruelty cases. They kick a**!! And their are currently 50 student ALDF chapters at law schools throughout the country. I totally plan on starting one when I get to school!!

Oh, and about Elle's LSAT room--mine was easily that crowded!! Sorry!

I would venture to guess that if you were as conservative as all that, you would think that ALDF was a waste. I think there is a liberal buried in there somewhere. Don't worry, we won't tell anyone!

True, and you haven't yet told any of us females to forget law school and get back in the kitchen.

"I am able to recall hundreds of important details at the drop of a hat!"

Nahh. I love animals. I'm such a bleeding heart when it comes to them I can't even go the zoo, aquariums, or the circus. AND I'm conservative!

Wow, that's really nice to hear!! Considering that, I won't hold the fact that you probably voted for W against you. And I am sure ALDF would be proud to have you!

Oh, and while I LOVE to go barefoot, I will NEVER be pregnant! I get all my babies from shelters!!

Oh, and guys? Not all Christians are judgemental freaks. Some of us are as liberal and non-judgemental as the day is long. And I have two pastors in my family! (both very liberal)

Don't allow the media's representation of Christians or conservatives to cloud your judgment. Most of the people with whom I associate are just like me, scary as that may be. My point is, you've been chatting with me this long and found me perfectly agreeable, for the most part.

As for my own religious beliefs, they aren't quite what is portrayed as the so-called "Religious Right." I believe in God, but it's more of a Deist God that sits back and watches as things transpire.  See, George and I don't agree on everything!

I doubt they would...most folks tend to stereotype one another, so holding the political beliefs that I do and feeling about animals the way I do simply don't mix in many people's minds. I did vote for W, of course, but I had little choice. Most of the time it's the lesser of two evils rather than the better candidate.

I really genuinely like you, Lane. And I can't say that about very many republicans I meet. As far as conservatives and animals go, the DA for Maryland actually headed up an animal cruelty division in his office. Those attorneys work specifically on those cases and receive special training. And he is a republican!!! I saw him speak at an animal law seminar at American.

Maybe there is hope for some of you....(lol)

Hey every one,
Looks like I missed a good ole fashioned political discussion...thank goodness (notice I did not say thank God)

Anyway...nothing in the box today...I guess I should just except that as the way it's gonna be for a while. I went back to class today after spring break and every word the prof said sounded like the teacher from "the Peanuts" Blah...blah...blah.... I can not believe that I am so distracted by this non-sense.

Lane- did you catch anything in the mailman pit?

Im especially upset that I missed the group hug.

You know what ticks me off. I got an email today from Roger Williams LS waiving the fee if I apply. The email telling me how much of an attractive candidate I am for their school.

Why are schools still sending out these emails when they can not render decissions on apps that have been in for months. Maybe I should send a copy to Rutgers to remind them how wonderful I am.

Where's the Bob's

PS Lane I had Chalupas for dinner last night......they did not hold a candle to yours pal.

They are giving me in-state tuition which I think was something like 7,000 a year, and then she said she was going to forward my app to the scholarship pool.  So there is a chance for more $$$, I figure that if I wasn't at least in the running for some more $$ then she wouldn't bother sending my app to the committe.  
The only thing is that I am an east coast girl.  I am used to cities and people.  I went to Akron, thought about living there, and wanted to die.  I have never been to the midwest (is that what its called?) but I could only imagine it being a nowheresville also....sorry for the stereotyping.  I'm mostly worried about quality of life when it comes to the school I pick.

Yeah, right in the middle of town. I applied to a school in Alabama! It looked nice...



I was kind of looking at Miss College of law (not ole' Miss)...thought it looked like a pretty good school for the rankings it received.

I thought about them, as well, but I had already applied to 75 schools...I figured that was enough.

The dean called me. Said the letter was in the mail.  The weird thing was that she said: "Well I am calling to ask you if you have committed to any other law schools at this point, because if you have not we are going to offer an acceptance to you." I just thought it was strange...

Hello everyone, still in at nowhere I want to go.  LaneSwerver, so sorry to hear of that conservative affliction you have... I will pray for you.  On a more serious note, I understand how you feel about any Texas school accepting you; I feel the same way about a Pennsylvania school.

On a side note, here's a funny story.  I own a remodeling business, and have been remodeling for the past 15 years.  I am currently trying to create a study for myself out of an unused bedroom and went ahead and bought a lazyboy loveseat recliner.  Picked it, brought it home, and it doesn't fit down my hallway.  Can you believe I forgot to measure the f*#@ing hallway and door?  On the brighter side...I now have new living room furnature. ;D

Hello club and happy hump day to all. Yesterday's mail consisted of a huge brown envelope that I was sure contained the acceptance I had been waiting for....instead it was just Widener's financial aid info. I've also been getting several small fliers and letters from MSU every week. It's a pretty smart ploy on their part, it's hard to forget about a school when everytime you check the mail there's another postcard from them.

Of course if they really wanted me to go they would have offered me some money. Since MSU is a public school I wonder if they'll ever...uh... how do I put this...un privatise the law school? If the tuition was on par with other public school's I'd probably go.

I don't know how you login because I'm not a student yet! The award letter only says Satfford loans, but still, they haven't accepted me. Here's the e-mail that they sent in response to my question:

Mr. Swerver,
 
I checked with the Law School Admission office.  You will receive your
pin # from the UALR Law School after you have been admitted.  Once
admissions has been established, you will have ample time to review &
accept your award at that time.
 
However, you have been awarded the maximum loan possible through the
Stafford loans -  $8500 Subsidized loan of & $10,000 Unsubsidized loan.
 
Please let me know if you have further questions.
 
Gail Siddell Johnson
Assistant Director
 

My further question is why do you keep sending me these cryptic letters?

I would still call tomorrow and talk to the dean of admissions.  Play dumb (hope other people use this expression) and pretend like you are just trying to fing out what's up...don't mention that you emailed financial aid.  At the end of the convo, if you get the same response, go in for the kill with "While I'm on the phone with you...would you be able to give me the status of my file?"

Works every time.

I too have not been "approved" at any schools yet. I applied a little late though, but still hoping for the "do you believe in magic" song to start playing. Here is a list and what they are for me:

Super Reach:
BC
Pitt
Temple
Villanova

Slight Reach:
Rutgers-Newark
Marquette
Santa Clara
U San Fran.

Range:
Seattle
Howard
Syracuse

Safety:
Michigan State

I'm tired just typing all of those names. I think I will be getting a "positive" letter from Syracuse and Michigan State soon, and a "negative" letter from BC, Pitt, and Marquette soon. The rest are kind of a toss-up (i hope not auto rejects). In the end i think i will get into at least three schools (best chances are Rutgers, Howard, Syracuse, and Michigan State).

Good luck to all, and wish the same for me.

Ok heres a question, not that I expect any of the drunk members of this group to have an answer, but i'll ask it anyway.

Whats up with Temple's index score? I was just searching through LSN, cuz im totaly obsessed with this process and on the verge of insanity. Anyhow I find this guy with an index of 169.4 which just happens to be the same as mine. However, he has a 167/3.21 and I only a 155/3.87. This would lead one to believe that Temple gives prudence to GPA, yet thier accepted student numbers (at least on the small sample on LSN) do not reflect this. If LSAT is thier main indicator why have this type of index? I don't know if I even make sense at this point, I truly think I have lost all bearing on reality.

Oh...My...God.

I'm in shock, here. Still shaking a bit.

Just got a phone call.

Accepted at Franklin Pierce.

Haven't even gotten the letter; these were law students making courtesy calls.

30% shot on Chiashu.

Average starting salary upon graduation: $95,000

That is all.

Congratulations!!!! That's awesome. I was going to call, but I couldn't find your phone number and I thought you wife might think it was weird that some random chick was calling at 9:30 at night. . . I'm so stoked for you. I hear GREAT things about FP!!!!

Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: YankyKitten on March 24, 2005, 06:28:43 AM
Ok heres a question, not that I expect any of the drunk members of this group to have an answer, but i'll ask it anyway.

Whats up with Temple's index score? I was just searching through LSN, cuz im totaly obsessed with this process and on the verge of insanity. Anyhow I find this guy with an index of 169.4 which just happens to be the same as mine. However, he has a 167/3.21 and I only a 155/3.87. This would lead one to believe that Temple gives prudence to GPA, yet thier accepted student numbers (at least on the small sample on LSN) do not reflect this. If LSAT is thier main indicator why have this type of index? I don't know if I even make sense at this point, I truly think I have lost all bearing on reality.


HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP

Here's the reality... When you calculate the probability of acceptance with both of your numbers and the same index score using the numbers they have accepted last year the 167/3.21 has a 94% probability of being accepted and you, 155/3.87 have a 39.9% probability.  Don't worry, it is still better than my 154/3.85 29.9% probability.  :)
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: robocop1840 on March 24, 2005, 07:06:03 AM
Yanky,

I realize that the 167/3.21 is a much more attractive candidate than I am, and I knew going in that Temple was a reach for me. I am just perplexed over the formula they use to calculate their index. Why use  an index as a guise suggesting that GPA weighs favorably.I can not figure out what their angle is by doing this.I thought index numbers were a way for the schools to take a quick look at the chances you had at success in law school based on a formula they came up with puting the emphasis where they thought important (LSAT/GPA) Maybe I am spending way too much time over analyzing things I have no business doing. This whole process has made me a ranting lunatic. At the begining of this process I had a grip of what the process is about, NUMBERS NUMBERS NUMBERS. But as this thing has drug on and on, it has made a normaly rational, grounded realist, a stark raving mad stary eyed dreamer.

 When I mailed my apps with my dismall 155 I would have been overjoyed to be accepted to Widener. After all my goal was to attend an ABA law school and earn my JD. I had no aspiations of "biglaw" and the rank of the school I would attended matter little. ( cuz I know I put up a 155). However, the longer this thing plays out the more distorted my reality becomes and sometimes I have a hard time figuring out what is lawschool reality, and what is lawschool fantasy.

I just want to hear back from my pending schools so that I can plan the next three years of my life.

Thank you for listening to my tiraid.....I just needed to vent
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: YankyKitten on March 24, 2005, 07:18:45 AM
No problem!  However, why do you think that just because someone has a higher LSAT than you do that they are a more attractive candidate?  Temple prides itself, or so they say, on not putting too much weight on the LSAT if someone has stellar (or in their words above a 3.8) GPA.

In addition, you have work plus life experience.  I have to believe that our soft factors mean something when we have accomplished things out in the real world, enen though our score doesn't indicate that we would be economically viable.  We have already proven what we can accomplish with the resources we had available, imagine what we could accomplish with a JD!

By the way, did you write a Sp.A.C.E. statement?

Yes, it was Cafe DuMond. Pretty good beignets and coffee. I'm back now. I went to Harrah's and was reminded why I don't go to casinos outside of Las Vegas...it was horrible. Played some craps, which I rarely ever play, won a little cash, and got the hell out of there. F-ing TV...ever since they put poker on television, everyone is an expert. The wait to get a seat was hours. So, I'm back in my room drinking. I'm too old to hang out with the undergrads that came on this trip.  Woe is me.

I saw him. He gave me a ticket and then shot at me. I offered him a beer and now we're friends.

On the mail front, my wife informed me that I was waitlisted at Widener. No biggie...I'll withdraw it soon. That was part of my shotgun approach when I thought I wouldn't get in anywhere.

and ING has the best rates out of the 3, right?  We could make some real money if we just referred 25 people each!  and they could make some $ too...hmm..  maybe then we could get our dental hygiene in order

Thanks MAtthies for your comments.

I am still concerned about the qulaity of Ed. at RWU.  Their Bar passage rate and employment rates of 66% and 59% respectively really scare me. 

As for Master of Laws, I am really interested, unfortunately there is not a program offered in Atlanta.  I am willing to move for the JD but not for this.  Seems like a good way to go.

Yanky,
I know the Cornell welcome wagon is on it's way.....

Well no news again today...it's begining to get interesting.

What are the chances I will hear anything prior to April 1? April even though I did not apply until January I thought for sure I would know before April...now I am not to sure.

Oh well I guess no news beats we dont want you news....

Ohhh RWU....
I know someone who went there and got a great summer job at an awesome PVD firm.  His wife happened to work for the friend of a partner and the friend was the president and sr partner at the place I worked....RI is all about who you know, literally.  I guess everywhere is but in a small place...it's so important. 

I think Cap one and Emigrant were already over 3% last week.  My SO got $50 for joining ING when he did and I got $10...not fair :)

Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: Xony on March 25, 2005, 01:33:14 PM
well shoot!  you're right, ING isn't the highest rate! OK time to open a cap acct..does he wanna refer me? 
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: maka nani on March 25, 2005, 01:36:25 PM
yup! 3.10...do you ever check out bankrate.com?

shoot...i don't see any $$ referral stuff on their website

ah well

emigrant direct is at 3.25%

is that what he has?  wanna refer me there?  not sure if there's an option or not..
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
Post by: maka nani on March 25, 2005, 01:41:56 PM
nope, no referrals! :(

well, all three seem to be good accounts so far.  He is going to drop ING and keep CAP and EM.  I think one is his motorcycle savings  ::) and the other is just savings.  still odd to me though. 
Title: Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!

Status Update:

As of yesterday, waitlisted at Widener, rejected at Drake, and accepted at Tulsa.

Still no Texas schools, but Tulsa is closer to Texas than Florida! Cost of living there is super-low, too, and I'll fit right in in a trailer.

Guam had better sweeten up their offer, 'cause I'm whoring myself out, now.

Well, Lane, no news is good news, right?  Again, I had no news in the mailbox today.

Has anyone heard of an ap being held for the ad comm to look at again, without the applicant being notified?  The reason I ask is, for many of us our ap has been with the school for a very long time.  Is it possible that we have made it through the first round of elimination, so to speak?

Yanky,
I think All of us in the middle, "maybe" range are probobly looked at often. I thinkthere is a big pile of all us maybes and they use whatever criteria to weed through us, compare us, whatever they do. But I would guess that the maybes get looked at more than once.

Just a guess of course cuz I realy don't know squat about whats goin on

I don't know, but spoke to what sounded like some important person at Temple, who said she could see why I was concerned I hadn't heard anything yet.  Called the next day to follow up, and the receptionist told me the ad comm had met on Thursday...
So our apps could have been in there as a second round.  Who knows?  I have to think that if we haven't been rejected by now they're at least still considering...

Another week of postal delivery comes to an end here in NJ with nothing more than overdue bills and empty hopes filling my mailbox. Well at least tomorrow Ill have a good meal and enjoy a day without thinking of lawschool, I hope.

I hope everyone has a nice holiday tomorrow and lets hope that March ends next week with many acceptances in our mailbox.

Thanks everyone... I appreciate it. I wasn't really counting on them but two dings in a day is kind of rough. At least I know there are others in the same boat with me. It's hard for anyone in my 'real life' to understand the stress level involved with this process.

Dante, cheers! Oh, to answer your question YankyKitten, I have 4 more pending. I applied to 7. According to what I see on the boards, I should hear from Case and OSU next. Let's hope the next week brings good news to all of us.

Hello, everyone.

I'm back from my sojourn to New Orleands, the Big Sleazy, and back at my very exciting job. I'm kind of glad I didn't get into Loyola New Orleans now; I don't think I would like living there. It's...very smelly. Nice in small quantities, but any more than a couple of days is too much.

Let's hope this week brings us what we're looking for...I'm ready to sew this thing up.

congrats on Tulsa, Lane.

Now if Friggin Wesleyan would get on the ball, you could stay in Texas!

Here's a scary update on Wesleyan:

I received a letter from them Saturday saying that my application was complete and had been reviewed by the AdComm. Hoewever, a decision has not been reached. It went on to say that I would be notified as soon as a decision was reached.

So, looks like I'm right on the borderline with them. I fired off a letter today saying I'm still very interested in attending and also enclosed a copy of the paper I presented at my conference last week to prove my scholarly aptitude.

In fact, I sent one of those letters/papers to all the TX schools. Maybe it'll push me over the edge. If not, I'm doing my whirlwind tour next week. Houston to Jacksonville to Miami to Concord to Albany and back to Houston in five days. Should be quite the adventure!

Morning to all I hope everyone got enough candy and other easter crap yesterday. The only thing I've gotten from the mailbox this weekend was more info from MSU. I think I'm going to call them and explain that if they would stop mailing me brochures every other day they could probably save enough cash to offer me some monetary aid. Then I would attend.

Oh and Yankykitten, I recieved Villanova's e-mail response back today and they confirmed that they take the highest LSAT score.

Still no hope on the horizon for me.  Status update today (see my rant in Acceptance thread).  What is even the advantage of applying early.  I had me sh*t together in October and people who applied in Jan/Feb have found out.  If my numbers are low, just reject me, this is ridiculous.

Yeah, the itenerary keeps changing. With the Albany acceptance, here's the final run-down; tell me how crazy I am:

April 7: Fly from Houston to Jacksonville, rent a car, visit Florida Coastal, and spend the night there.

April 8: Drive to Miami from Jacksonville (five hours), visit St. Thomas. Rush to the airport and fly to Manchester, NH. Arrive there at 11PM, rent a car, drive to Concord, spend the night.

April 9: Pierce Open House; chill out in NH, check out the scenery.

April 10: Drive to Albany, NY from Concord (three hours) and check out the local scenery. Spend the night.

April 11: Visit the school, drive to the airport, and fly back to Houston.

Nuts, huh?

Thanks werbz, I'm not going to lie, it does help knowing Hofstra accpeted me, but I really would like a PA school... I think that is why I wasn't too disappointed.  I can't go to Hofstra this year, but maybe next year, and I don't care that they dropped in the rankings.  I visited the school last year and I love it.

Yes, Robo! Play some poker. It'll take your mind off this whole horrible process, and it'll be a hell of a lot of fun. We're getting your sunshine here, though, I'm sorry to say. Not a cloud in the sky and 75. This is our month of spring. Soon, it'll be 95 (temperature and %humidity--nice that they match) and the mosquitos will be so big they can carry you away. They're already here, but not in clouds yet.

Here's an update...I have no news, which I have come to appreciate.  They are obviously trying to find a way to offer me money and they want to send it with the acceptance.

I have a question, why has no one posted a rejection from Villanova?  One postor has indicated that they have a first acceptance pool with an early seat deposit date of April 1, and they keep a second acceptance pool to send out after that date.  Does anyone know if that is true?  I suspected another senario, one much more sinister.  Is it that they hold all rejections until a certain date and send them all out at once?  Perhaps on the upcoming April fools day, just to let you know what they really think of you?

Sorry for rambling...I certainly have passed over the edge of insanity.

Wow!  Who would have guessed that the Who's still in at NOWHERE? thread would still be around 35 pages later!  I think most of you are really IN somewhere now.  However, there are still some of us purists, who are yet to receive an acceptance.  I know, I know that is awfully elitest of us, but we are the few, the proud, the desperate.  I believe this will be the week for many of us to drop out of this Nowhere club.  Here's hoping many of us will lose our privileges in the Nowhere club this week!

hidy ho neighbors....

Well my mail delivery dosent usualy come for another 40 minor so, but im sure there will no news to mention.

I did however win $400 bucks last night playing poker, thought it would take my mind of this process, but the funny thing is when I walked out of the casino I thought hmm $400 thats how much the seat deposit is at Widener.

Lane I was wondering why my hangovers from Bob's lasted four days

Here's my prediction, Robo:

You'll send off the seat deposit for Widener, and as soon as the check clears, you'll get your Rutgers acceptance.

A few different people stated that Temple made a lot of decisions on Thursday, March 24th.  Oddly enough, this coincides with the date that Cornell reached their decision on my ap.  I receive their rejection yesterday and that came from east jibip, NY.  So.... am I being optimistic when I haven't heard from Temple yet?  Perhaps, I made it through another week? Will Batman be able to save me from going bonkers?  Tune in next week.

Well, that is probably good news for you guys, but the fact that I have not heard from Temple probably just means that they are using my app as a coaster (been complete since Jan. 5th). I am happy to go to Widener, but I wish Temple and Touro would just send me their decisions so I can have some closure!!

Good afternoon club, the rankings are out as I'm sure everyone is aware. Interestingly enough both Gonzaga and MSU are now third tier, which just makes this harder considering seat deposits are due at both in 3 days.

I understand your pain Lane, I'm a native Texan as well and being called a yanky is probably the most offensive thing I can think of. (No offense to the yankys in the club of course).

My persian (she is grey) was brought to the shelter I worked for at the time by a woman who found her living under a deck with an eye infection and a cold. I think she was probably abused by her breeder or someone, because she used to lash out when I came anywhere near her with a brush, but now she actually purrs for her brushing sessions. I love her so much, and my husband is literally in love with her!!

Yes! I have a cat, well actually I have several, who had a cold when I rescued him.  The vet told me to put it to sleep because it was a snotter!  I said he's too lovable, she replied the snotters always are.  When we couldn't find a home for him we put him in the SPCA and cried all night until we called the next day and said we would be by later to pick him back up.  Well, when we brought his vet papers, we forgot to tell them that he's had all of his shots.  By accident he was given another shot for viruses and he has never snotted since.  They wanted me to destroy a perfectly good, lovable cat.  His name is Cutey.

Austin is very different from the rest of Texas, people-wise. It's probably the most similar to NE as far as the residents go. The area surrounding it is (in my opinion) the most beautiful in the state. Lots of rolling hills, trees, rivers, lakes, etc. If you visit, make a swing through the Hill Country. You won't regret it.

OK, well, you have to consider that we in Texas don't really consider VA as part of the South. In fact, we don't even consider ourselves part of the South. The people here are extremely friendly, for the most part. You might get teased for the accent, but listen to us! You wouldn't be hated, though.

I have about 9 or 10 apps, and so far 2 are dings and 1 is a HOLD, all of which came in the same week.

Since they all went complete at roughly the same time (Feb LSAT score report was the last piece, sent on the same day), should this be good news that I haven't heard back from other schools yet?

Man, I am really reaching here...

Silly girl, I'm just playing with you. You should come visit...most people don't leave after they get here. We have a lot of expatriates!

Its not they donít leave, itís that they canít leave. Having driven between San Antonio and Phoenix more times that I wish to recall, I can attest to this. From the middle of that state, in any direction, it takes you like 14 hours to get the heck out. I-10 is miles and miles of treeless highway interspersed by tiny towns without any form of bathroom sanitation. By the time you reach the border, whatís left of your soul has been sucked out and your willingness to drive any further is gone. I think thatís why El Paso is growing so quickly, people trying to escape Texas by car finally give up all hope and just resign to pull over and settle there. You canít escape that state by car, Iím telling you. If you do manage to make it to the border whatever little hope you have left is all but destroyed by the site of the sign saying ĎWelcome to New MexicoĒ.  Texas is a wonderful state, and San Antonio is a GREAT town, just take a plane, or you will never get out again.

It is big. Anywhere that you can drive fourteen hours and still be in the same state is big. We'll keep you one way or another, though...tourism dollars, baby.

Robocop,  clicked a search on Camden and found you.  NO, it is NOT true that all the acceptances are gone.  Get that out of your head.  You have a great shot and once you stop dwelling, you'll get some good news. 

I used to check the lsn site as well as lsd EVERY FIVE MINUTES to see if I could find something out.  It was consuming me for weeks.  My work production decreased and, feeling guilty, I'd work late an hour or two just to dwell some more.  I FINALLY decided last weekend that if Penn State was the only school I got into, so be it.  Then, I got this surprise phone call from Rutgers - Camden, who originally told me that the only way I was going to be guaranteed an acceptance was to attend their summer Contracts course b/c the fall class was full.  Guess what they said today.

I'm in for fall.

I'm in for fall.

Sillt Mia,
Thank you for the encouraging words. I try not to dwell, but I can't seem to stop myself. Camden is just the best scenerio for me, being in state and all. I hope I will see you on campus this fall. Can I ask what your numbers are?

To everyine who was bashing the great state of Texas. From one who is born and raised in the NE, I visited Texas a few years back and I fell in  love with it. The people were probobly the friendliest I had ever met. If I can ever draw myself away from beautiful S. Jersey I wouold definately live "deep in the heart of Texas"

I'm studying...I have completely neglected my schoolwork and now I have a mid-term tomorrow (with 50 pages more to read) and three major papers due in the next two weeks, one this Saturday.

The good news is that I have excaped the ax for another day!  No news is good news.

God, now that I am in somewhere, at this point I would almost welcome rejections just so I can officially forget about every other school. I mean, Temple, come one, who are they kidding? Of course they will reject me. I just don't know what is taking them so long.

I would be remiss if I didn't share this info... someone just told me that they called Temple and a decision had been made on their ap which has been complete since mid-dec.  Hopefully, we will all be hearing good news soon!

legalkitty, just out of curiosity, have you asked Widener how many students they admitted last year to TAP, and how many were able to obtain the passing grade?  I have often wondered about the real numbers.

I think that it generally ends up being about 70 people per campus who attend it (obviously more are offered it) and they said that usually about 25-30% get the 2.3 (C+) that is required. Sometimes as many as half  of the people successfully complete it.

I am basically going to do whatever I have to to do well. It is a little scary, but I am not too worried.

Is this starting to get stupid or what? I could understand if I was waiting on maybe one or two schools to get back to me, but 5 of 7 schools  with no answer and tomorrow is the last day of March. I don't I guess I should put it out of my mind.

I sent Rutgers-C an email about three days ago, they have yet to respond...oh well....

How is everyone by the way...I was to busy ranting to be polite..

That sounds great! Have you seen the book on Widener's reading list that is about how to take law school exams?  I think it would give you an edge over the rest of students, you should check it out.

No news for me today, still. I guess the Texas schools are going to wait until the last minute to send my denials. UALR is still sending bizarre letters about how I need to log in and accept my awards, but when I call them they have no idea what's going on.

This needs to end really quickly.

Top of the, er, afternoon to ya!

I, too, have not heard anything, but at this point I am only waiting for UPenn and UVA to ding me and American to make up its mind about whether or not to be gracious and let me in (please, American? Please??). It has been so long since I've submitted my apps that that I've given up on anxiously checking the mail because I've pretty much given up hope. I did, however, start begging GW to let me off the wait list. Keep those fingers crossed...

Robo, did you just email them with a general inquiry on your app?

Lane, how many TX schools are you waiting to hear from again?

Do you think we get special attention because we are instate?  The reason I ask is that I waiting to hear from three PA schools and Lane is waiting to hear from four TX schools, robocop is waiting for a NJ school.  And I'm not sure but I think legalkitty is from PA too, and waiting to hear from a PA school.  Just trying to keep our hopes up, remember if they definitely didn't want us...we would have heard something by now.

After I wrote to legalkitty about that book, I thought, "hey, everyone might be interested in suggested law school reading." so here's the link:

http://www.law.widener.edu/Law-Library/new/services/students_readings_expanded.shtml#students

The book I was referring to was:

Dernbach, John C.
A Practical Guide to Writing Law School Essay Exams.
William S. Hein & Co. 2001..

Woohoo! I like that logic; I live in DC and am waiting to hear from American.

Although DC isn't technically a 'state'...

Legal Lady,
 I just sent a short may I check on the ststus of my application email and to no avial. I guess theyare busy, but three days later I woud have thought they coulod have responded with something. The worst part of my wait with Rutgers-C is that I ama next day turn around with their mail. So I do not even have the "I hope of it's in the mail" diversionary mind tactic, I should know the next day after they send me something.

Yeah I second that... I'm really tired of waiting. At this point I think it would be nice if we were told something. I'm waiting on 4 out of 7, last day of March. FSU said that they 'hope' to have all their applications processed by end of MAY. I've been complete there since late Jan.

I also sent an email to Case asking the status of my application--but they have yet to respond after a week. Hey, I did get a newsletter though! </bitterness>

God, I wish that were true. I am from PA (only about 20 minutes from Temple), but I think I could have been born on campus and it wouldn't make any difference. If I got accepted, it would be like, the ULTIMATE Cinderella story. I just don't understand why they need 4 months to reject me!!

Sorry to hear that Rutgers is being so mind-bogglingly lame. It can't take more than 10 minutes to check your app!! You'd think with apps at $60 a pop, they'd be able to afford to hire someone to JUST check apps for people who inquire.

Hey i'm still in at nowhere over here!! I've recently decided that I am going to start preparing for the June LSAT and apply again next cycle if I don't get into my top 2 remaining choices. I scored about 10 points lower than my diagnostic tests, but I really didn't want to test again. Looks like im going to have to now though. I am also going to include my URM status on next cycles applications as well. That may help a bit.

I'll be with you likebutta10!  If I don't get into a school around t he Philly area that I want to go to, I am retaking and applying early.

Oh, Xony...I am in at a place I'd love to go to, Hofstra, but can't possibly afford to go, at least this year.  So, I interpret this club as including the nowhere I can go. ;D
