The 4 years free service.. I love knowing that I won't have to worry about my car at all through law school. And the 15,000 miles or 1 year between oil changes kicks ass too. The guy that invented synthetic oil is a genius!

'04 Audi A4... Beemers suck :P

Audi's are nothing more than over priced glorified VW's. Throw in leather, knock off the symbol for the olympics, and..POOF! You've got an Audi. BMW's set the benchmark all car manufactures aspire to.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: In at WNEC!

Sure - nationally the schools rep isn't great. It's known locally (at least in my area) and that's why the school works for me. It all depends on where you choose to practice. I'm not interested in BIGLAW. My goal is to open a solo or small firm in the future, and do my own thing. Look at it this way - there is no way that the T14's can pump out enough laywers to do everything in this worls. Every law school has it's place, just make sure that the school can realistically help you fulfill your dreams.

I graduated college in May 2004. I've been working in a management role in New Markets and Licensed Product Development for a distributor. I'm leaving my job at the end of the summer because of the commute. I work in North Haven (southern end of the state), and it's just too far of a commute to go from work to school in Mass. I'll be looking for a job at a local law firm. I've got a few connections - so I'm banking on them. I bought a new car last year, plus monthly bills - so not working is not an option.

As far as where people live - I have no idea. I live in central CT, so I'll be commuting to school. It's only about a 30 min. drive from where I live. It looks as though you'll be looking for a place. I noticed that the school offers assistance in finding apartments. Check out this site, it may be of some help.

Purely, as an example - it is possible - though I'd recommend applying to lower ranked schools.

My stats are 146, 149 LSAT, 3.1 LSAC GPA, not a URM, though I am of European decent. 2 years WE.

I applied to PT programs where available.

I have been accepted to Western New England in Massachusetts.

Waitlisted at New England in Boston and Albany Law School.

I'm still waiting to hear from Pace.

It is possible - see what happens this year. If things don't work out, revise your list of schools next year and try again. Remember to apply early. I applied in October. The earlier, the better.

Keep your head up. Good luck on the rest of your cycle.

I do plan on attending the open house on 4/8. I've visited the school in the past and met with students and faculty - I got the impression that the school is extremely friendly - everyone seems like they'd be more than willing to lend a helping hand whenever needed. I've also heard great things about the job prospects in CT (I live in CT). The way things stand now - it looks as though I'll be attending WNEC come this fall, though I'll be in the PT evening program (can't afford to not work for 3 years).

Where are you from? Maybe I'll see you at the open house.

Is anyone here considering attending? They're having an open house in April. Maybe I'll see some of you there.
