Transferring / Barry U. vs. Hofstra
« on: June 28, 2012, 07:50:03 PM »
Anyone have an opinion on whether I should consider transferring to Hofstra? I understand the reasoning regarding where I want to work but with that aside any opinions? Here are some of factors I'm considering:

Cost: Hofstra is quite a bit more
Reputation: Hofstra is more established than Barry although the NY legal market is crowded and it is closer to the bottom than top of the list of schools
Location: I'd love to live near the city although I realize Hofstra is 45 to an hour outside

Thanks in advance for your input.

Nevermind, I am in directly...thanks!

The website has a better description than I'd be able to write: Summer Conditional Program
The Summer Conditional Program permits invited students lacking the traditional indicia of success to demonstrate that their ability transcends their quantitative credentials. Applicants possessing credentials close to those of accepted students may be invited to participate in a three-week set of week-long units on various topics beginning in mid-June.  Each unit is taught by a full-time member of the law faculty.  At the end of each week, students will be tested on the material covered during that week.  Students will be graded on a point-scale system; students in the top 20% of the class will be admitted to the fall entering class.  The performance in law school of students admitted through the Conditional Program has been strong.

I don't think I would go for this, its too subjective and risky especially since I don't already live in Miami.

Thanks appreciate the response...I emailed earlier today but didn't get a response from them yet. I'm really just being anxious, planning on calling tomorrow. If anyone has been accepted to Summer Conditional let me know what it said on your status checker.

Hey my status checker for St Thomas has said 'Congratulations You've been Accepted!' for almost a week and I haven't received anything in the mail....the fee portion shows a line for "Summer Conditional Fee"  so I was disappointed but then today I received two emails for invitations for an information session for admitted students and an online chat.

Does anyone have any insight into whether I'm accepted straight or through Summer Conditional? Has anyone been accepted through Summer Conditional and what does it say in the status checker for that? Thanks in advance!

What's up...I applied to Nova too and I have similar numbers to yours with 5 years work experience. My app status also says In Review. This is my first time applying to law school so I'm no expert but based on what I've read if you are denied or accepted through AAMPLE and have another LSAT score coming up, you may be able to ask them for reconsideration with the new information. Do some research on that, I've read about it a few times. Good luck!
