Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Law School Offers
« on: March 08, 2016, 02:38:21 PM »
I received my first acceptance letter (well, e-mail) and did not see an offer letter. Does this come via mail or once I accept, is this figure given? I do know that I have been awarded a dean's scholarship but I'm not sure if that's the offer. Help! I have no idea how any of this works.

Thank you!

TLS is the big one (albeit most people too stupid to pass the LSAT posting advice acting superior to licensed attorneys since they have 10,000 posts over 5 years, but still no decent LSAT score..... ::) )
All4jds  is another one if you want to talk to online law students (which we here have a thread for that too, but no one seems to use it much)
JDunderground is ok, but avoid the "dome" part of it. They don't give a direct link to it you have to type in its address and then backslash dome to get to it, but its basically a bunch of homophobic porn pics and anti-Semitism and nothing else more.
I hear xoxoxoth is online still, but not worth my time to check
That Coprophiliac Nando posts still I think, but only pictures of poop (that I suspect he takes himself) and an avatar of him killing a guy with a gun to the head while he posts about not being able to pass the bar and how much it angers him.

I stay here. The internet is scary.

 :o ..and here I was about to sign up for some other sites.

Law School Admissions / Re: Cancer: Will it Affect Their Decision?

Thank you, Citylaw, for your quick and positive reply. I forgot to explain that my personal statement talked about how loosing my voice for 3 months due to my cancer made me realize how important a voice was. I decided to address it because it sincerely has changed my life in both positive and negative aspects as well as pushed me to finally apply for law school. Also, waiving my rights to see letter of recommendations I am assuming my academic advisor/mock trial coach/professor of 4 classes is going to mention it and didn't want it to be one of those surprise things. 

I am sorry to hear about your schoolmate/one of your students passing. Being in somewhat of a similar situation, I am always looking to hear about students like them. It's one thing to speculate because it's illegal to discriminate on basis of health- but it's another to hear someone that did it and achieved the end goal.

Thanks again.

Law School Admissions / Cancer: Will it Affect Their Decision?
« on: November 04, 2015, 09:37:34 AM »
Greetings all! I recently (June) went through surgery and radiation for an advanced cancer. I beat it! I'm just a little concerned that cancer may be off putting to the schools that I am applying to. Advanced cancers have a higher percentage of coming back and with my surgery being just a few months ago, I could possibly be seen as a liability. I put off surgery and radiation until after undergrad graduation and went through 2 years of it with cancer- I'm determined.

What do you all think? Have you all personally seen anyone with cancer be accepted without issue or extra questions?

Thanks in advance.
