Choosing the Right Law School / If I defer, must I go?
« on: July 14, 2009, 03:46:49 PM »
I have an offer from a school, but they require me to be there in 1 week! So I think I am going to wait a year. If I defer until 2010, but also apply to others schools for 2010, and get accepted to a better school, must I go to the school I originally deferred?

I posted some months back in regards to AAMPLE and Cooley and which to attend, yada yada yada... I took advice that was given, and re-took the LSAT. I came out with a 153. I increased 8 points! So I have a 138, 145, and 153. My LGPA is 2.98. The day after I received my LSAT score, Florida Coastal, a school of which I applied, was rejected, then offered AAMMPLE, sent me an email congratulating me on my acceptance along with my scholarship, explaining the necessary info would be sent today.

With that being said, I do not know the amount, but with that aside, and my new score, couldn't I defer, apply to others schools for Fall 10' and see how I play out? Worse-case, I go to FLorida Coastal with scholarship?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Barry U. Wait List OR ?

Both Nova and Thomas M. Cooley have a deadline of April 1. I have not heard from 4 schools, and my LSAT is 145, 138 and GPA is 2.99. Thank you for everyone's input and advice

I have been accepted to Thomas M. Cooley, and have been invited into the Nova Southeastern AAMPLE program. This program is designed to weed out diamonds from the rough by making the participants take two classes, of which at least a 2.5GPA and at most one C is need for admittance. The classes last one month, and cost $3500. I am having trouble deciding, as I am refering to "a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush." Now this saying doesnt help with rationale. Is the bird in hand raggedy or nice, with respect to the other two in the bush, even though I only have one becuase a waitlist from Barry is not likely to be decided upon by April 1. Any  thoughts, ideas, experiences on the AAMPLE program or either institutions?

From the Nova Southeastern Law AAMPLE website:

about 20%-50% of the students in any given year are successful. There is not a “quota” on the number of AAMPLE ® students who will be admitted to the NSU Law Center. All those who achieve the cumulative G.P.A. of 2.50 or higher—of which both grades are a C or higher are offered admission into the NSU Law Center after successfully completing the additional Law Center requirements. The usual range, however, is approximately 20%-50% of enrolled AAMPLE ® students.

The success rates for the following years of the Online AAMPLE ® program are as follows:
Online        On campus
2005 - 11%    2005 - 0
2006 - 22%    2006 - 45%
2007 - 33%    2007 - 39%
2008 - 37%    2008 - 42%
