Can anyone contribute to the OP's inquiry? I'm also curious.
Thanks.

I've never heard of such a program. 
Does this mean you will only get to practice law in AL?

Have you considered taking a LSAT prep course?!  TestMasters, PowerScore, Princeton Review....or any other prep course available in your area, will provide you with various strategies for the different sections of the LSAT.

I would strongly recommend a prep course, and hours of personal study time.

I agree...I'm starting Law School in August - and when I learned of this site, I was excited.  And shortly after joining, I was disappointed because there is very little activity.  It's quite disappointing.

Did you take any prep courses?  The prep courses would offer techniques that would allow your score to increase 2-6 points.

Further, you never stated your undergraduate GPA. Is it as good as your grad school GPA?  I know people that have gotten into law school with a LSAT score in the 140s and 3.0+  undergraduate GPA.  All hope isn't lost, but there will be a lot of rejections if you don't get that score up.

Sorry, I have no information on the school.  Is it ABA accredited?

Black Law Student Discussion Board / CLEO - AIE Pre-Law Program
« on: April 29, 2011, 02:02:47 PM »
Hey all -

I can't seem to find the discussion about the CLEO AIE program, so forgive me for the repeat post.

I recently applied to the CLEO AIE Pre-Law Program as I am set to begin law school in the Fall Semester.  The application deadline is May 1st. 

I was hoping for a general timeline of response time re acceptance/rejection to the program.  I was also hoping that a few of you would share your AIE experience.

Thanks.

It will difficult, but you can do it!

I know several people with similar LSAT scores that with similar or higher GPAs that received acceptance letters from schools in the top 100.

It all depends on timing, the needs of the school, your essay and lots of PRAYER.

You can do it with your current stats - but you would have to apply to numerous schools (maybe 12-15) just to increase your chances.  If you want to get into Howard, I would advise that you sit for the LSAT again.

I was wondering what happened?  Are you heading to law school this year?

Don't be discouraged - a friend of mine scored a 146 and had a 3.6 gpa and got into Rutgers-Newark, New York Law and St. John's.

Don't give up! You should really apply to more schools, if you decide (or decided) to apply again.


Applied to three schools...accepted to one (Touro), but declined offer of admission, hoping to see results from the other two (Touro wanted an $800 deposit). The other two schools, Hofstra and CUNY Law both waitlisted me. Got the letter from Hofstra about a month ago and the one from CUNY today (have to send out form tomorrow). Sent LOCI and extra letter of reccomendation to Hofstra and havent acted on CUNY yet.

I assume that I have no chance at getting into either school now? Since I got waitlisted so late and the school probably has hundreds of waitlisted students for every spot, as well as the fact that students probably dont decline to go to either school enough to open up extra seats.

Am I right in my analysis? Any hope for me, or should I just look at another career path for the year?
The problem with applying next year is that I will need to get new letters of reccomendation...somehow and since I already had professors write them this year, I wont have anyone to do it next year as I wont be in college anymore. My numbers really hurt me...149 LSAT and 3.8 GPA.
