Anybody have any experience with UA WL? I'm having 3 UA Law Alumni send in LOR's directed to UA along with an updated resume. Anything else I should do??

Law School Applications / Appeal Decision or let it go...
« on: March 02, 2009, 03:43:17 PM »
So this past weekend I was rejected from the University of Denver evening program with a 3.35/154. Although my numbers are low for the full-time program, I thought I would have an excellent shot at the PT program given that both my numbers were in the 75% range.

Needless to say, I am quite distraught about the situation and need advice. Do I call up the admissions people and ask for an appeal to the decision? Possibly a spot on the W/L? Any constructive input is appreciated.

Do PT Acceptances/Rejections/WL's come out at a different time than FT decisons? Or would it depend on the school?

L.L.M. Board / Tax LLM Reputations
« on: January 09, 2009, 04:37:49 PM »
I will be a 1L this Fall most likely at the University of Denver or University of San Diego. I am interested in tax law and just wanted to get feedback on the reputation of LLM's outside the top 3 (NYU, UF, GT). Is it even worth it obtaining an LLM from other schools (i.e. USD or DU)? What if I want to work on the West Coast? Thanks.

Denver / DU Admission

I'm applying this cycle with moderately low numbers, 3.35/ 153 (Dec. LSAT pending), and just wanted to gather everyones opinion whether I should apply strictly to the PT program or take my chance with FT. According to LSN, last years PT acceptance stats were pretty similar to mine.. Also, for those of you in the PT program, is class on Saturday guaranteed or does it vary from year to year? Thanks everyone.

Do they generally release the Dec. LSAT scores before New Years?

Law School Applications / Admissions and the economy

I've been hearing from various people that LS admissions will generally be easier for Fall '09 than in years past because of the decreased application rate over the past few years. Has anybody else heard anything similar?

Studying for the LSAT / Dec. LSAT study schedule
« on: October 27, 2008, 12:08:55 PM »
I took the LSAT in Oct. and got a 153 after completing the Kaplan extreme class. Am I better off studying on my own for the Dec. LSAT or retaking Kaplan?

Law School Applications / Apply with current LSAT/ G.P.A.??
« on: October 24, 2008, 11:03:53 PM »
I just received my Oct. LSAT score and got a 153. Not by any means impressive, but I am wondering if I should retake the LSAT in December or just send in my apps now and hope for some good early admits. I have a 3.55 G.P.A. (3.35 LSDAS) and will be applying to mostly T2 schools (ASU, San Diego, Denver are top choices). I also have a few years experience in healthcare litigation and commercial real estate development, and 3 solid LOR's. (2 from professors, 1 from attorney I clerked for).

Does anybody have any suggestions??? Any input is appreciated!!
