General Board / Re: The Truths and Myths of Law School...
« on: March 02, 2006, 01:13:04 AM »

- You don't know what you are talking about. Why are you even in law school?

- I want to make money.

- I've always been told there are easier ways to make money.

I am curious if someone could shed some light as to what "easier ways to make money" the individual might have alluded to? Anyone?

I am waitlisted at my number one and number two choice schools.  Anybody else on these wait lists and if so, what have you heard from the school. 


Wait List / Re: Off the list

I have been waitlisted at University of Maryland and they have told me they will begin reviewing their waitlist every two weeks after May 1st.

I have also been waitlisted at Penn State Dickinson and they have also told me the same thing.  However on, there is an individual who posted that he/she was waitlisted at Dickinson and then accepted off of the waitlist. 

Who knows.  I can only hope to get into one of these schools as they are my 1st and 2nd choice.


How do you get off of the wait-list and accepted before May?  Has anyone out there been wait-listed this year and then accepted after being placed on a wait-list?  If so, what did you do to be proactive?

I am wait-listed at Dickinson (Penn State) and at University of Maryland--my number one and two choice schools.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Well, I heard back from MD ....I am wait-listed.....UUGGHH

any idea how to get off the wait-list and onto the acceptance list?

Is it possible to get pulled from wait list and moved to acceptance list before May 1st?  I asked the Admissions Committee this and they were hesitant in answering the question......


My application file was complete by Dec. 1st.  My LSAT is 155 and my GPA is 2.8 from undergrad. (I graduated a year early and worked full-time)  I have a Masters in Science with a GPA of 3.6 and an MBA with a GPA of 3.4.  All degrees were earned while working full-time.  I have alot of work experience.....but I want to make a career change.

As we know, there are a ton of applicants this year.  I can't believe I have not heard anything yet.  I was accepted at Widener; wait-listed at Penn State Dickinson, rejected from Catholic and I am waiting to hear from Univ of MD and Univ of Baltimore.  Penn State Dickinson is my first-choice and Maryland is my second-choice; but it is really difficult to get off the wait-list so I am pulling for Maryland right now.

How about you?
Best of luck!

Wondering if anyone has heard back from University of Maryland.  My application file has been complete since Dec. 1st; but I have heard NADA.

I am surprised to be wait-listed this early in the application process!  I have also been wait listed at Dickinson, which is also my first choice school.  I have been accepted at Widener and am waiting to hear from Univ of MD and Univ of Baltimore.  I was also told by the Admissions Committee at Dickinson that they make decisions on the wait list up until the first week of school...... and I, too am concerned about the "living situation." 

Anyway, you are not alone ...that is for sure.
