Denials / When will Brooklyn bring out the Dings
« on: March 28, 2005, 09:22:25 PM »
I am waiting for my Brooklyn Ding.  Three weeks ago I received a call from Brooklyn.  They called me at and said the Dean wanted to speak with me.  Turns out they had the wrong person (have a popular name).  Once they realized wrong person, story changed to "No Dean does not want to speak with you. Application Complete. Goodbye"

Non-Traditional Students / What Type of Law do you want to Practice
« on: March 11, 2005, 09:07:00 PM »
Anyone think about what type of law they want to get into after law school.  I know many are still running around and waiting or preparing for admissions.  The legal field is very large and has many different avenues.  I have worked for the past 10 years as a paralegal and have worked on different types of law.  Corporate, Real Estate, Intellectual Property, Securities, Blue Sky and Bankruptcy to name a few.  Please post your interest or thoughts on types of law that you may be interested in pursuing.

Non-Traditional Students / Which factor is most important
« on: February 26, 2005, 04:36:19 PM »
In making a decision to go to law school, which factor is the most important when deciding.  Is school rank more important?  I don't have great numbers but I have an acceptance from NY Law and waitlist at Pace.  (147 3.5)

If I got an acceptance from Pace I would consider it over NYLS.  I visited both schoola and I found Pace was a better fit.  Even though Pace was not ranked higher.

Acceptances / New York LAW

I just received my first acceptance. New York Law School.  Waiting for Pace and Brooklyn.  It is a relief that I have somewhere to go at this point.

Non-Traditional Students / Contacting Law Schools
« on: January 28, 2005, 08:38:13 AM »
I called two law schools this week (Pace and New York Law) and they mentioned that the decision is in the mail.  I did not ask what the decision was but I was wondering if I should have.  Do you know if they would tell you over the phone is you were accepted or rejected.  I fear that I was not accepted because of my low LSAT score.  I am trying to resist the urge to call them back to see if they would tell me but I guess I can wait until the mail comes.

Non-Traditional Students / My story
« on: January 04, 2005, 09:34:28 AM »
I took the LSAT in December 2003 and received a 147. I had spent a year preparing for the LSAT and even with preparations I was not getting over 150 mark.  I have a 3.5 GPA and I applied to Fordham, Pace, New York Law and Brooklyn.  I was already rejected at Fordham (no surprise).  What are my chances at this point with getting into the rest?

Also at this point I have been working as a Paralegal for the past 10 years with 2 small children at home.  My biggest concern is that if I go to NY law or Pace I may make less money coming out of law school than I currently make now.

What are your thoughts.
