Where should I go next fall? / Re: Utah or BYU
« on: February 22, 2005, 03:04:29 PM »
I agree with Byronic.  I was surprised to see them slipping, but once I got there I knew why.  The students are also very aware of it.  As soon as they found out I went to GMU they got really annoyed and started telling me how they are a better school than GMU and the rankings are wrongs.  I personally don't care much for ranking, but they made such a deal over it.  I would stick with a solid school with a national reputation, considering the state of the economy in Utah, you will probably want to work out of state.

Wait List / Re: GMU's self imposed deadline
« on: August 03, 2004, 08:09:53 PM »
MidJeep,
Let me know if you get into GMU, as a consolation prize for having to deal with the waitlist I will give you all my 1L books and study aids to use for the year free of charge. The only one that might be different is contracts (the book sucked last year b/c it fell apart) and econ b/c the teacher is different. Other than that though the books are the same and the study aids I have a great both in condition and content.  If you are interested you can contact me at chaddow@gmu.edu.  I have been reading about your plight on the waitlist and figure the least you deserve is to save about 600 in books and study aids!

GOOD LUCK!!

Not to make any waves or anything, b/c I am sure the WL is a personal hell for many, BUT I have a good friend who just informed me today he got in off the GULC WL. His LSAT was a 171 and I am not sure about his GPA but I am pretty sure it was good (prob like a 3.3 or 3.4) Anyways, I called his BS, but then he read the letter to me.....and this guy is not one to lie....so take that for what it's worth.  Wish you all the best of luck!

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: GMU Scholarships
« on: May 01, 2004, 09:53:09 AM »
Most people, if they get anything at all, get half. GMU does not have as much going on in the money area as most schools, but every year it gets better and they are able to offer more money. Also, there are a lot of factors that go into getting money, so if you have really good numbers you still might not get anything. There is a lot more money available after the first year and during the 1L summer if you have an unpaid job. So all hope is not lost :)

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Going to GMU =)

Yes, there is GIRL on this board that currently attends GMUSL. :) SHE has lots of info on the first year day profs. :)

Skippy,
GMUSL is a very highly respected school in this area and it is quickly gaining a national one.  We are the fastest and youngest rising school in the first tier. The undergrad at GMU does suck, but GMUSL usually does not take them. I think we had one in our class and she dropped out.  I love this school and I promise you will too! If you have any questions feel free to ask!

CONGRATS!!

Law School Applications / Re: How young is everyone?

I am 22, started law school at 21. Don't worry about being younger than everyone else. I got some crap for it from some idiots, but most people are not that lame.

If you are smart enough, you are old enough

Hey future 1L's CONGRATS on GMU! I currently go there and I love it. I posted something on the waitlist section under being on the GMU waitlist that tells about the profs. the FT will have next year. You probably want to take a look at it. :)

Law School Applications / Re: Volunteer work.... with the church???
« on: April 24, 2004, 01:02:56 PM »
First off.

Mormons and Catholics. :)(I might be biased b/c I am Mormon) ;D

Second, the joke about the multiple wives, not so funny, really try to get more creative, we Mormons have only heard that one about 1,000 times! :P

Finally,
Volunteer for the sake of of volunteering, not for some law school application, all they want to see is if you have the numbers, the rest is just icing on the cake.
