Choosing the Right Law School / Pace or Vermont
« on: January 23, 2006, 07:20:10 AM »
Would it be crazy for me to choose Pace over Vermont Law? I want to do Enviro Law and although Vermont is high ranked... I would like to stay in the NY area. What should I do!

Choosing the Right Law School / The First Cut is the Deepest
« on: January 06, 2006, 05:34:45 AM »
So I received my first rejection in the mail yesterday from Seton Hall. Ouch did it sting. I thought I was somewhat competitive for that school, but I guess I was wrong. Perhaps sending a PS that includes a section explaining my struggles as a gay female to an Irish Catholic school wasn't such a good idea... anway, my question for you all is this...

Do I have no shot at Rutgers Newark since Seton Hall dinged me? I have sent Rutgers everything except their application fee. I would rather not waste the $$$ if I don't have to. I'm not that hard up for cash, but I hate to throw away money if my chances are slim. What do you think?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Albany Scholarship

After patiently waiting to hear from Albany about possible scholarship money, I decided to drop them an email. I was told that scholarship decisions will be sent on Friday January 6. Just thought those of you who have been accepted may appreciate the update.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / The Cardozo phone call.....
« on: January 03, 2006, 08:43:21 AM »
Does anyone know if every accepted applicant gets a phone call from the Dean? I've been complete for over 2 months now and I'm figuring they are just prolonging my suffering or maybe they have a lot of people to call.

Or perhaps I'm just driving myself crazy and overthinking everything...

Choosing the Right Law School / Vermont vs. Higher ranked schools
« on: December 12, 2005, 12:01:56 PM »
I've never posted here before, but I have been following since September when I started my apps. I guess you could say I'm a silent observer. Anyway, I'm struggling with deciding where to go to school. I plan on going into Environmental law so naturally I applied to the number one school for enviro law... Vermont Law. they are a t3 school, but when it comes to enviro law they are ranked number 1 (okay number 2 this year). So my question is... if I get into a school that is higher ranked then Vermont... like say Cardozo or Seton Hall... would it be better to go there then a school that has a superior program for I what I plan to concentrate in. Your input is appreciated. Thanks!
