I think Pace is beautiful. I was very impressed with the school when I went to interview there. They have an amazing Enviro Law program, which is very appealing to me.

I like what I see of NYLS, although it is soooooooo expensive. I applied there and will only consider attending if I get a very large scholarship. The admissions people are very friendly and returned my phone call very promptly.

I picked extraciricular. My numbers are just average and I think I have some strong work experience and LOR's. One of which is from a Rutgers Proff so I though that was better option

I don't know what I was thinking actually. I know it's sad. I guess I'm just a big pessimist and I figured if all else failed at least I would have somewhere to go. They had been spaming me ever since I registered with the LSAC and I knew they would take me and throw some money my way...

Well I didn't think it was that late.... The instate tuition was such a plus, and I could live at home and save some money on housing. Okay I'll go ahead and send them their money.

Seton Hall rejection said such things as

Well Ms. Curry we get sooooo many applicants that we just can't possibly choose them all. This is not a reflection of your abilites as we know you are capable blah blah blah but we just don't have room for you. Don't be discouraged... good luck in the future.

Although the end said something to the extent of "this decision is final!" I felt like I was back in high school and my mom was yelling at me... NO YOU CAN'T GO OUT TONIGHT AND THATS FINAL! Like I was gonna call up and beg them... please let me in your school, I'll be good I PROMISE!

Dinged at Seton Hall. OUCH! My first rejection. Although I must say, their rejection letter was rather sweet and almsot touching at times.

So I received my first rejection in the mail yesterday from Seton Hall. Ouch did it sting. I thought I was somewhat competitive for that school, but I guess I was wrong. Perhaps sending a PS that includes a section explaining my struggles as a gay female to an Irish Catholic school wasn't such a good idea... anway, my question for you all is this...

Do I have no shot at Rutgers Newark since Seton Hall dinged me? I have sent Rutgers everything except their application fee. I would rather not waste the $$$ if I don't have to. I'm not that hard up for cash, but I hate to throw away money if my chances are slim. What do you think?

I'm working that out as well. I'm currently working two jobs in order to save enough to live during law school. I hate my full time job (hence me being on LSD right now), but it pays the bills. 5k is probably what I will have saved as well, but I do plan on relying on loans for housing. My saved money will pay for everyday expenditures like cell phone, car, gas, food ect... and I hope to be able to hold down a part time job while in school... wishful thinking I bet

I believe the NY Law School program is called AAMPLE. I know that Albany has it...

"Applicants selected to participate in this rigorous program enrolled in two on-line courses - Criminal Procedure and Negotiable Instruments for an 8-week period during the spring and early summer. Courses were taught by full-time Albany Law School faculty members. Participants that earn a 2.25 grade-point-average in the two courses are guaranteed a seat in the entering clas"

So I just found this thread and you all have me so nervous! Anyone wanna read my PS and give my some feedback? Not that I can do anything about it now... but I am a sucker for punishment
