Current Law Students / AAMPLE Program....
« on: March 10, 2005, 10:22:26 AM »
I was recently offered admission to the AAMPLE program (Alternative Admission Model Program in Legal Education)at Albany Law School. This program requires me to take two law school classes in an eight week period from the middle of April to the middle of June. After the finals, I need to have completed the classes with a 2.5 (C+) or better to gain admission into the law school.

I have been researching the AAMPLE program, apparently there are other schools that have the AAMPLE program, and a few schools that have different, but similar summer start conditional programs.

Has anyone taken the AAMPLE program or a similar program? If so, what did you think of the program, and were you sucessful? I have read a lot of different things about the program, I am just looking for first hand accounts.

Any info is appreciated.

Current Law Students / Wait Lists...
« on: February 16, 2005, 12:23:16 PM »
Is anyone actually attending a school they were wait listed at? Has anyone actually made it off a wait list even if they are going to a different school? What exactally did you do that you think helped you make it off the wait list?

Any info would be appreciated. I am just curious.

Current Law Students / Law Review Question...
« on: August 05, 2004, 11:49:12 AM »

I am not a law school student yet, I will be applying in September. I have a question about Law Review, and I was not sure where else to ask, I assumed here would be a good place.

I am thinking about applying to law school in the part time division so that I can keep my job, but...

Can PT students make the law review? I can not imagine why they would not be able to, but I was wondering if anyone could confirm this one way or another.

Thanks for your time :)

Just wanted to let you guys know that a friend of mine used to edit her personal statement and she was impressed with the quick turnaround and the good suggestions made by her editor. I am not sure about the prices, I think that they go by the word count and the turn around time you choose. She picked 24 hours which was cheaper than the 8 hour turn around, it cost her less than $10 for a word count that was about 500 words.

I used a service last year to get a little bit of feedback on my admissions essay and it was very good. I used Essay Queen, she was thorough.

Hope this helps someone out. Good luck! :)

Incoming 1Ls / Albany Law School...

I finally got my grades for AAMPLE and I did well enough to gain admission into Albany. It feels great to be able to make a decision and pick a school. I am going to spend tomorrow looking at Albany and Vermont, just to make sure Albany is where I will be happiest.

Anyone else definitely going to Albany?


Incoming 1Ls / Pocket PC
« on: April 13, 2005, 11:05:11 AM »
I am going to buy a pocket PC as a way to situate my calendar during law school, but I want to buy it within the next few days and start using it to see if I like it. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what kind to buy? I have been looking at the HP IPAQ series and the Dell models. Anyone have any opinions?

Thanks in advance.

Did anyone attend the open house this Friday? What were your impressions on the area or the school? I was unable to get off of work so I could not go for the visit.

Choosing the Right Law School / FASFA .. over 6 schools
« on: March 26, 2005, 06:54:38 AM »
This has probably been covered elsewhere, but I just have one quick question. I sent out my fasfa electronically. It has been processed, and I want to swap out the 6 schools, for a new set of schools. How do I know the old schools have gotten the FASFA. Since it is processed, does that mean it was made available or sent out. If the schools have not gotten the FASFA info yet, and I swap in the new information, will that lock the original 6 schools out? I called and asked but spoke to a moron who really had no clue how to advise me on what to do if I want to add more schools.

Any help is appreciated. :)

Choosing the Right Law School / AAMPLE vs. TAP
« on: March 12, 2005, 04:22:01 PM »
I have been given the opportunity to participate in both programs. Anyone have any thoughts on which is better Albany AAMPLE, or Widener DE TAP? Anyone heard anything about either program. Just curious. I have been researching them both, and I am curious as to which one would be better to enroll in.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Widener DE TAP
« on: March 12, 2005, 09:11:58 AM »
Just got the letter. I figured I would get TAP because of my LSAT, so this was not a surprise. I am on my way out though, so I still have to look it over.

I am also in at Albany for their AAMPLE program. Anyone have any idea which would be a better program. I am still going to put a seat deposit down on Vermont, just in case I do not get through one of these classes...which is extremely unlikely, but you never know. I always like to have a plan B.
