General Board / Re: are your classmates snobby a**holes?
« on: April 12, 2007, 01:08:42 AM »
Thank to all of you who appreciate this thread. As a second year student, things have not changed. Everyone is as vicious and arrogant as they were on the first day. Now they have reason to be vicious, as most of them aren't getting any jobs! I wonder how my good friend Jacy is doing?

General Board / Re: Are there any WNEC Law students posting here?

First of all, I personally spoke with the person who was in charge of the survery which resulted in those statistics. ONE person did graduate and started at $500,000. As you can see from the stats, 6 people were in the $100,000-500,000 range. Also, the big assumption you are making is that ALL law students want to work for a huge firm. WNEC has an outstanding clinic program along with a mock trial team that frequently makes the national championships. Is WNEC highly regarded nationally, not completely but it is making advances. Will you be able to teach at Harvard with a WNEC degree? probably not. Can you be an excellent practioner of the law with a WNEC degree...absolutely. As with any law school, a person should make a choice based on their personal preferences. If you prefer a quiet, supportive, friendly, cohesive, yet challenging environment WNEC is the school for you. I attended a Tier 1 school for undergrad and the education I have received at WNEC is of much higher quality than that school. Don't be so quick to dismiss it unless you have attended there.

Thanks for your replies! I did not apply to albany or syracuse because I can't afford either one of them. I am in the top 50 in my class for sure.

biolawgirl:  Buffalo told me they have begun making decisions as of Monday. All decisions should be out within two weeks. What is your friend's situation? What school is he/she coming in from?

I will keep everyone posted!

My grades were average-above average. I did exceptional in some classes and mediocre in others. The biggest reason for the transfer is because I have a chronic medical condition and my insurance is not accepted in Mass. There is no negotiating the insurance issue b/c i'm lucky to have any sort of coverage that pays $2000 per month for medicine. I have been driving back and forth to NY to get medications and treatment. Buffalo is much closer to home and my medical providers.

I sent them five letters of recommendation, 4 from professors and 1 from the chief attorney at my clerkship this summer. I dont think 33% is good odds. I'm just waiting for my rejection letter to roll in. At least I tried.

Western New England College.

UPDATE: Buffalo has received 30 transfer applications for 10 seats...this isnt looking too good!

The person with the $500,000 job also has a medical degree. He received a $250,000 raise when he received his law degree.

I would rather deal with a dump for $11,000 per year for tuition than a decent city for $35,000 per year.

I applied to the University at Buffalo as a transfer student. I was wondering if anyone else is attempting this and has any insight? Thanks!!

State University of New York / Re: Buffalo Waitlist
« on: July 19, 2006, 07:13:41 PM »
I did the buffalo waitlist game two years in a row. i met with dean upshaw, per her request both times I was waitlisted. the waitlist is ranked, i do know that. my best advice to you is to call and make an appt. to meet with dean upshaw. if you are not able to physically make it there, schedule a phone conference with her. BE PERSISTANT!!! good luck!!
