Acceptances / Loyola Law School - LA
« on: March 01, 2006, 12:52:42 AM »
In at Loyola! :) Online status checker changed to "sent" on friday, letter was actually sent Monday, and received today!

Who will I be seeing there? :)

I got accepted...

...wow. Just wow. I REALLY didn't think I would...

I guess this means Loyola doesn't only look at GPA and LSAT after all!!! :)



congratulations on the unexpected!!!  it must feel great!  maybe i'll see you there (fingers crossed).

Thanks! :) Good luck to you!

yea, i got one early last week, but i live on the east coast, so I prolly wont get the letter until later next week.  Do you suspect that its an acceptance?  Thats my guess, but thats only based on the idea that acceptances are the only decisions theyve made so far.

Didn't get anything in the mail today... so hoping for Monday. I hate waiting... :\

I really don't know... I'm scared to speculate... I might jinx myself! :P

Well, my status just changed to "letter has been sent" on the online status checker! Did anyone else get this message today? I'm assuming I'll get the letter by tomorrow since I'm so close... gulp.

I applied right after Thanksgiving and was accepted early January. I'm right at their 75% for LSAT, below 75% for GPA (LSAC reports it at 3.6 - I have a 3.45). I'm not sure why they're being so slow with you, pinkybella! :\

I e-mailed them about scholarships and I got a very fast and pleasant reply... the lady told me they were revamping their scholarship system and that awards should go out before the seat deposit deadline, sometime in March.

Oh I would definitely go visit for myself after being accepted.  I went to LA in Oct but focused mainly on looking at my dream schools of UCLA, USC and Loyola.

I've already visited, but unfortunately they kicked us (my boyfriend and best friend and I) off the campus. :P I think they were hosting the SATs or something at the time...

I would prefer to go to Loyola, even though I think the campus is really ugly, but since I haven't heard anything yet, I'm assuming my outlook is bleak. So Southwestern is my back-up...

I don't think you should assume anything about Loyola yet.  I'm still just complete according to the status checker.  Until it says decision has been mailed, no news is good news.

That's probably a good attitude... but I like to prepare for the worst - then I'm not disappointed either way. :) I just hope Loyola notifies me before I put down my seat deposit at Southwestern!

The attorney I work for went to Southwestern, did the part time evening program, and recommended I go there if I want to do the same (evening program, that is). She highly praised the law library and the campus (the Bullocks building is pretty nice) but didn't mention anything about competitiveness and/or an unpleasant atmosphere. She works in family law right now, small firm, probably makes 80-90K per year. I also spoke to a job recruiter (specializes in LA area legal jobs - anywhere from attorney to receptionist positions, mainly at large firnms) who told me that Southwestern has a very good reputation in LA, with a strong alumni network. (She ended up finding me a job at a big firm in Century City, which I'll be starting at in 2 weeks!) So... I tend to trust the opinions of both of these people, though I will probably schedule an official visit sometime and try to talk to some of the students... whose opinions I would trust above all else (especially over the "friend's brother's uncle's sister" hearsay ;P)
