Law School Admissions / I AM DONE!!!!!!!!!!
« on: November 22, 2005, 07:38:07 PM »
I just sent my last application through LSAC.  So, except for nervous anxiety for the next few weeks, I am done.  I have to say its like a hummer-sized gorilla has just been lifted off of my back...I feel like I just got paroled.

Anyway, for those who are interested, here is the list of schools that I sent applications to...enjoy:

U of Maine
Albany Law School
SUNY Buffalo
Rutgers-Camden
Syracuse
Quinnipiac
Valpariaso
Widener
U of Dayton
Catholic U.

I'll keep you guys posted as to any results, but good luck to everyone on the boards.

I'd like to do one of the following...Criminal Prosecution, Appellate or Public Policy.  Although, the Kelo decision has me thinking about property law.

I guess that's what 1L is for

Great Idea...every other sub-group has their own thing, why not us?

Applications sent:

U of Maine
SUNY Buffalo
Rutgers-Camden
Albany
U of Dayton
Catholic

Applications yet to be sent:
Syracuse
Quinnipiac
Widener
Michigan St

Valparaiso

Good luck to everyone involved

BTW-we should also have a seperate post for success stories

Im not sure of the rates, but Im sure they'd be willing to barter their services for expert pro-BONO legal advice.  ALthough, if I were you, I would definitely not travel there at night without an armored tank division.

As for cotton candy, I wouldn't know as I've never been a big fan, but I saw some guy selling bean pies and incense while at a stop light one time, if you're so inclined.

Choosing the Right Law School / Where to go, What to do
« on: November 21, 2005, 05:50:58 PM »
So, I'm getting ready to send in the rest of my apps on Thursday.  My numbers are 3.71/152, with 4 years full time work experience and awesome PS/LOR's and I am applying to the following schools:

Rutgers-Camden
Albany
SUNY Buffalo
Widener (fee waiver)
Valparaiso (fee waiver)
Quinnipiac (fee waiver)
Syracuse
UMaine

What do you guys think?  Which schools do you think I have a realistic shot to get into?  Do you guys have any inside information on any of these schools?

Any help is appreciated

C'mon, Camden's not that bad.  All the crack, hookers and drive-bys anyone could ever hope to experience.  Just take a stroll down Admiral Wilson Blvd and witness the carnival of depravity.

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Re: fuel my paranoia please

Apparently I am in the minority in that I really don't think I want to work for a "big law firm".  I'm going to law school to get a job as a criminal prosecutor.  I've always wanted to work as a DA or US Attorney.  Therefore, I imagine, if I go to law school and kick butt the way that I expect to, then my career as a law enforcement officer will greatly enhance my opportunity to serve in that capacity.  While I certainly want a decent paying job as I am getting sick of Chef Boyardee and Ramen noodles, I'm not getting in this primarily for the paycheck, but to maybe put some really bad people behind bars for the rest of their natural lives. 

So to answer the question, I would think as long as your grades are good, then previous work experience would be a plus.  It shows that you are able to survive in a professional setting and won't do anything stupid.

Good Luck on the Job hunt and keep us posted
