Wait List / Re: Fordham Waitlist
« on: June 23, 2006, 12:19:33 PM »
I just got a call from one of the adcomms today and I'm in off the waitlist!  Booyah!  Been at this game for way too long and was so ready to pack it in, but now I'm psyched!  Still not sure if it's part time or full yet; I'll speak with them tomorrow and get the full details. 

Anyway, for anyone else still waiting, there is hope!

Congrats! Do you know if its for FT or PT yet?

I'm going through a similar situation... so hard to move and find an animal friendly environment.  I may be stuck commuting 1-2hours each way until I can find something.  But living on campus is out of the question, since I have 3 cats and a dog.  My poor old lab is currrently in ICU...  :'( had to race her into the hospital for emergency surgery over the weekend.  For some reason I woke up in the middle of the night, and decided to walk her, and she collapsed a block away...she was all contorted and engorged... turned out she had bloat - her intestines were all twisted up above her heart... supposedly they die within a few hours from that...only 20-30% chance she would survive the surgery because she's so old - 15 years - but she made it through...  hoping she'll recover.  Animals are SO wonderful. Poor Francis  :'(  the home feels empty without her.

Pets become part of the family... I hope she makes a full recovery and you get to enjoy a few more years with her.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Univ. of Florida or Miami

everyone in the state knows that and people go to miami because they cant get into UF.

Everyone?  ::) I will have to disagree.  A number of people don't even apply to UF  simply because they don't want to live in Gainesville.  In addition, people turn down higher ranked schools quite often for $ at lower ranked schools.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Taking LSAT 3 times

Hopefully, you won't have to retake  :)... Unfortunately, I don't have much advice for the preps, other than you should strictly be practicing from previously administered tests.  Maybe there will be some new unpublished preps that will come out over the summer, such as a couple of the Feb. exams.  Stay on the look out for LSAC's new published material.  One thing you will have, is this past June's test, if you decide to keep your score  :D.

You could also post another thread asking if anyone has this past Dec's, last October's and last June's and any other previously administered tests that have not yet been published.  Those tests were displayed to people who took those exams.

In the meantime, you may want to check out this thread  if you haven't already regarding the new policy which may factor in your decision.

Not really sure anymore since the new ABA policy took effect in which LSAC will now report the higher score rather than the average. This may work to your advantage if you do wait for your score and then retake in the Fall if you are not satisfied. Personally, I think you should go ahead with the score, only because you became jammed up on one game.  If you take it in the Fall, who is to say you won't be stumped by something else, another game, rc passage, or if you get sick.

The new policy also works to your advantage.  If you don't like the score you get at the end of the month, retake it in the Fall, the higher score will now be reported, and that's all the schools seem to care about, because that is the only number they will need to report to US News.

Good Luck with whatever you decide.

I think the competition to get into law schools next year is going to be fierce with the new ABA policy regarding higher scores. Everyone now has an incentive to retake the LSAT and many  may score even higher than you, the 2nd and 3rd time around. I would just go ahead this year with FSU, which is very good school, rather than deal with the competion next year and there being no guarantee of you getting any money either. 

In addition, I don't think you will get into a higher ranked school with money, even if they take the higher score, your gpa is below the median for a lot of Tier 1 schools. 

However, it would help if we knew exactly what schools you are thinking of applying to next year.

A bad score will hurt you worse than a cancelled score.  Was your simulated test scores consistent the last couple of weeks before taking the test?

i'm hoping on ND myself. 

Hey Shaz, I hope I see you at the Crossroads, too.

Yea Notre Dame would be great, you could come to Indiana!! haha I heard that a lot of people are on the Notre Dame waitlist good luck though.

Yeah, it seems that way.  But I'm not quite ready to throw in the towel yet, it's not over till it's over.  :)  I think I have at least a few more weeks of fight left in me.

After what you pulled off, you are an inspiration for many of us.

Thank you! That means a lot to me! And definitely don't give up! Did you try harrassing them haha? Calling them once a week and writing a letter of continued interest. Let them know that you would drop everything and move right away to South Bend if you got accepted.

I believe I definately showed my interest, which is probably how I even ended up on the waitlist... without stalking them of course. :D  Now, it's just pretty much sit and wait and trying not to lose my sanity during the interim. I'll keep the board updated as far as where I end up eventually.  Hopefully, it'll be at the Crossroads of America.  ;)
