From what I hear, it's difficult but doable if you try a few things:

1. Market other skills that compliment your law degree - if you have a MA in something or strong background in science and want to work in that legal area, show that off first.

2. If you have/had a good summer experience before you got your rank, get plenty of recs and show that the experience focused you on what you want to do/don't want to do with your law degree.

3. Bust your ass the remaining semesters.

I'm currently taking this advice (especially #3) and I believe it works out for the best in the end.

How come I haven't posted on this board in maybe a year?

Thinking the same thing... missed this board (and I'm avoiding work LOL)

Hey everyone!

OK, I decided to withdraw from JM and Jones and reapply to better schools.

I will have my MPA by May 08 and an improved 151 LSAT.

Here I go again.  Congrats to everyone beginning 1L this year!  I am excited for you! (and jealous) :-\

Hey, at least you made the best decision for you. Apply early and write an even better PS and you'll get in somewhere great next year!

Twists are the bomb.

I love them, though I haven't worn them in awhile.

I am sad that my shampoo and conditioner has been discontinued . . . they claim they have replaced it with something else, but I am open to suggestions.  What does everyone use on the board?

I don't know if you like natural shampoos/conditioners but I can swear by, attest to, etc etc Oyin hair care products ( It's online only but I live overseas and receive my stuff in a week, so State-side I'm sure it's just as fast.

All the stuff is homemade, and the scents are light and sweet (rich almond scented shea butter, chocolate scented whipped puddng, honey hemp conditioner). The shampoo bar I use sparingly - only when I've put a lot of products in my hair and I need a clarifier, but the conditioners, pudding, creams are great for every day care.

Oh, I was also accepted to JMLS-ATL via phone call today.  Not as excited as I thought I would be.  They are an expensive T4.  I knew that already though.  Maybe I have spent too much time on LSD and am letting the snobbery of some of the T14 crowd get to me....But I know some current students at JM who are getting negative feedback about the school from employers in their 2L interviews. Not good. 

Anyway, I posted a question here.  Hopefully my fellow T3/T4 peeps can give me some serious thoughtful input on where I should go from here...thanks!,90803.msg2335363/boardseen.html#new

I totally understand being influenced by the LSD board, but if you block that out and you're still having reservations about attending, seriously consider them.

Do you have other schools (possibly better) that you're still waiting on?

I'll be the first to attest to being impatient and wanting the cycle over with, and starting forms I shouldn't have. Not that it wasn't easy to get out of (thank God) but just don't settle for less than what you think you'll be happy with for 3 years. It's your money, your hard work, and most importantly - your time. Go with your gut, heart, prayer... whatever gets you to a decision you're at peace with.

Best of luck to you!

Yeah, I'm on the Yahoo group and both Facebook groups as well. You?

Sent the e-mail - I'm officially accepted  ;D

Also called and sending deposit and info within 2 weeks... wow, I'm hype about school all over again!

Thanks for the advice all!

teotret - Any news for you?

Despite your "set in stone" user handles regarding UDC, I knew in my heart that if accepted to HU, you'd change your tune.  I, for one, am glad that you did.  It's a great school.  I work in the Office of General Counsel for the VA, and the attorneys with whom I work, all have nothing but good things to say about HUSL, even the ones who did not attend.  I think you made the right choice, but again, it's YOUR choice, alone.  Congratulations on getting in!!  I'll see you in the fall  ;D

Thanks... I think. Not sure what the bolded means though.

Honestly, it was a hard decision. UDC has a lot to offer its students and their focus on public interest is compelling. Howard won out because while I admire the underdog spirit of UDC, I want to have the opportunity to do OCI and network with a broad alumni base.

Congrats Jen!

Is it easy to transfer from PT to FT? If so, go PSU.
