Any movement on the waitlist?

Movement on the waitlist, just got accepted to the Del campus, full-time. Excited that I now have a choice of where I go. NESL or Widener. Still holding for U of Baltimore!

Choosing the Right Law School / U of Baltimore waitlist?

Anyone know about any movement on the UB priority waitlist? I called admissions I think the week of the 11th and they haven't look at it yet. He said they have about 120 people on it. Just wondering...

Law School Admissions / Summer Abroad?
« on: March 01, 2005, 01:33:30 PM »
I've noticed that a lot of law schools do summer abroad. Is this a common thing for some law students to do after 1L? I've always wanted to do it and never got around to it in UG.
I was thinking that it would hurt my chances of getting a job the next year b/c I wouldn't be "working" as a 1L, but then I have the next 50 years to work. I'd rather do something cool when I can. Input?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / New England-First acceptance
« on: February 16, 2005, 05:45:41 PM »
Just got my first acceptance letter to New England School of Law. It came in a small thin envelope. I'm pretty happy! I don't know that much about the school, except that they have a mental health law clinic which I want to do. The down side is that I will potentially competing with a lot of other schools in the area. I'm still waiting to hear from schools closer to home (Maryland).Any info on the school is appreciated!

General Off-Topic Board / Going to Paris
« on: January 28, 2005, 02:00:07 PM »
I'm going to Paris with my sisters the thrid week of Feb and need some advice on the shoe situation. I'll obviously be doig a lot of walking in the freezing cold, so wondering if ugg boots are acceptable (but dress up the rest of outfit, so I don't look like a bum). I don't want to scream "i'm american" but then again I need to stay warm and comfortable. They will probably be the warmest, although I'm not normally a huge fan of the shoes. Any thoughts?

Law School Admissions / Certification Letters?
« on: November 03, 2004, 01:44:28 PM »
I was completing my apps last night through LSACD on the web, but only some of my schools have certification letters to sign and mail back. I thought all electronic apps require it? The ones I can't get are the ones that require I pay online, can I get the letter after that somehow?

Law School Admissions / Send or wait for transcript
« on: November 01, 2004, 02:30:29 PM »
I am ready to send in all my apps, but waiting for my last year of grad school grades to be processed. I got an email today saying they just received it (after 3 weeks!) and will take about 2 weeks to process. Should I send or wait it out?

Law School Admissions / Tier 3 or 4
« on: October 24, 2004, 06:13:22 PM »
I basically know that I am a 3 or 4th tier applicant, but looking for schools that I might have missed. Here's my info. Graduated with a 3.1 from UG which wsa converted into a sucky 2.7. I totally slacked off my first 2 years at school which is the reason for the law GPA. But the last 2 years, I have over a 3.4 each semester.  I wrote an addendum adressing that. First LSAT 150 and recently got a 153 (after practicing around the high 150's), so bit of a shock there. 3.7 grad school GPA in psychology.
I want to go into mental health/family law so the top tier schools are not really that much of a priority. I'm from Maryland and want to stay somewhat local or less than 6 hours away. Here's my list so far: U of Baltimore, Widener, Suffolk, Pace, Penn State Dickinson, Quinnipiac (spelling?). Most of these schools have concentrations or clinics within my area of interest. I really, really wanted to go to Villanova, but think that is pretty much out. But not sure if I should apply anyway? Any thoughts or advice is neeed!
