Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Anyone declining GGU part time?
« on: June 09, 2005, 10:46:41 AM »
I am still waiting to hear from GGU p/t program and am wondering if anyone knows how many seats are still open. I assume there are way too many applicants than open seats.

Plutoeye: Please let me kow what you know after the june 19th orientation. This is the only program I applied as I am restricted geographically and had a pretty bad LSAT.


Choosing the Right Law School / what's the last date?
« on: June 03, 2005, 03:25:20 PM »
I have applied to one school only (bound by geography, finances, family etc.)
I was waitlisted and there hasn't been an update from the school yet. I called them today and they didn't say anything more than that the status has not changed. So, when is the last date? Does eveyone get a letter from the schools, no matter what? I guess school starts sometimes in August. So I should basically wait, right?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / GGU: what does this mean?
« on: May 11, 2005, 04:47:10 PM »
I had a pathetic LSAT and applied to GGU only, on a part-time program. they first sent me a letter in early march asking if I would like to be waitlisted. I said yes. Recently they sent me a letter saying that I should apply for student aid, incase they make a decision. Don't ask me why I didn't apply for the student aid before (I'll tell you though - in the midst of having our first born, I forgot!!!)Do you think it's a good indicator or does it mean nothing? This is the only school I applied to and the wait is killing me (either way, tell me soon).

Law School Admissions / help! whom to write letter of intent
« on: March 15, 2005, 04:16:52 PM »
Got a letter asking if I want to be waitlisted. The letter has a form attached. I am thinking of sending it back with a letter of interest. Whom do I address it to. The letter that came from the law school is signed by assistant dean. Do I address it to her or the admissions office?
Thanks for your help

Law School Admissions / waitlisted: help with letter
« on: March 09, 2005, 08:05:55 PM »
I got a letter asking if I wanted to be waitlisted. I applied to one school only (considering my disasterous LSAT score) and that too part time. I am thinking of sending another LOR from an alumni. Do you think I should write a letter of interest stating how interested I am etc. If so, what should I write? It's a T4!

Law School Admissions / fulltime vs part time evening?
« on: September 28, 2004, 05:48:20 PM »
let's say my appln is complete by early nov and I am borderline or 25/25. Would it be easier to get admission in evening program than full time? I checked one school where 6% of applicants got admission in full time byt 14% got in evening. Is this just by chance?

Choosing the Right Law School / Santa clara & USF- who considers diversity?
« on: September 28, 2004, 12:09:25 PM »
I am a non trad with almost everything non-trad! Really. My undergard in a different country from an univ nationally well known for score deflation. So, a GPA of 3.2 puts me in top 4% at the university! Need to explain this in addendum!Also, have a dean's letter stating stringent scoring process and my position.

Since my undergard 11 yrs back, I have been a sucessful professional, so far,with a Ph.D , several years of professional experience and success as evident from publications etc. My question is, if I am aplying to SCU and USF, which of the schools would give more importance to my diverse work, life experience, if at all? SCU says things about diversity etc in the website and also that their Adcomms (4 profs) read through each appln. Could this be correct ? they get 6000 applns!! USF on the other hand doesn't mention anything in that front. Anybody with any experience?

Lastly, once we are done applying, can we send a letter of interest to a specific school to let them know that if selected shall surely join. Thanks for any help.

Law School Admissions / Can I include this in application form?
« on: September 28, 2004, 10:23:22 AM »
In the appln form, where it asks if I worked during college: I worked after school (all through undergrad), giving private coaching classes to other undergrads and basically earned my living. This was ofcourse not a "job" with a paycheck, but I made just about enough for my sustainance. Does it count as work experience, in the appln. During my higher degrees I did not work and now have several years of real work experience. I am wondering if I could put it somewhere to show that worked my way through college. what do you think? where can I put it? I am not sure if I want it to go in my PS.

Law School Admissions / When do LSAT scores come in etc etc
« on: September 27, 2004, 05:36:18 PM »
I should be knowing it but I don't. I am taking oct 2nd LSAT. when do the scores come in? I am applying to only 3 schools part time. I have the forms etc but plan to apply in oct 2nd week. Does anyone know if they would consider my application until it's complete? Common sense tells me that my LSAT scores have to be in. Am I right?

Also, 2 of those scools have rolling admissions. Would it be too late if my application gets completed beginning Nov? That's considering LSAT scores will be in last week oct and it'll take a week for LSAC to send them to schools .

Third, my case is a little different than most as my undergrad was in a different country and LSAC does not handle my files. I need to send in everything myself, including LOR etc and an international organization sends in my transcript. That organzn tells me they have sent my transcripts already! I am nervous that without my applns the schools would mess up matchign my transcript to my appln. Should I call up the admissions office after I sent in my applns to see if they got every bits and pieces? Sorry for the long post.
