Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Pace
« on: July 13, 2005, 05:19:58 AM »
Any more movement on Pace's waitlist.  Does anyone know when the cutoff is for the waitlist. Is is two weeks before beginning of class or two days.


Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / PACE

Anyone else still waiting for Pace on the Waitlist?

Anyone going to New York Law School on Saturday, April 9th for Open House.  I will be attending.

Anyone going to withdraw based on rankings or change mind on other schools based on rankings? 

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"

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.

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Which factor is most important

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.

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.

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Contacting Law Schools

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.

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / My story

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.
