Law School Admissions / Re: Hofstra - did anyone get this?
« on: February 03, 2007, 05:59:05 AM »
If you didn't actually send it yet, I before E except after C

Lol... I'm not too concerned about a common typo. If the email is accurate, I'm already in (I doubt they'll recant an admission due to a spelling error in a hastily-written email). If it's a mistake on their part, then it's ALOT BIGGER than just transposing "i" and "e" in receive...

Yeah, I really sent it. When/if I get a response from them, I'll post it up here as well. I'm a non-trad (35 yr old) with too much time out in the working world to play games with something this important. If they meant to send it, GREAT! :D If not, then I'm going to call them on it...

Damn, I knew I shoulda checked here first. :( Oh well... let's see how this turns out. I guess I know the response I'm going to get to the email I sent to their admissions office (text below)...

     I just recieved this email and would very much like to confirm that this was sent to admitted students only... that it's not some sort of terrible mistake that is getting sent to all applicants. It would be unnecessarily cruel to find out that this was mistakenly sent out as a general message. I raise this concern because my application was only sent to the admission's committee a few weeks ago and I have not recieved any sort of acceptance or rejection notification. My efforts to log into the admitted students section, per the instructions below, have yielded no success.
      If this is not a mistake, thank you very much. I look forward to taking a deeper look at the new website and all that Hofstra offers. If this is a mistake... :-(

Brooklyn highlights its alumni network as one of its strengths, so if you'e set on working in NYC, you might be better off there.
Good luck,

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: What to wear when visiting schools
« on: January 31, 2007, 09:30:02 AM »
Damn, silly me... I was under the assumption that if I've been accepted already, that means that I'm in, regardless of my fashion sense (or lack thereof). As a part-time non-trad student, going in the evenings straight from my blue-collar job, I plan on wearing the same jeans, sneakers and a t-shirt to class that I wear to work. Ditto for visiting schools I've been accepted to... I'm going there and paying $2X,000 a year to learn, not for a fashion show. :-\

You wanna be a lawyer, right? Get to it, right from the get-go. NU has a very hands-on approach to learning to be a lawyer...
File that brief! Prep that closing argument! Sue that NU ID!  :D


I could have gone to a number of T1s and I chose Hofstra.

You really chose Hofstra over going to a T1 school?  I can understand there being some debate between going to Hofstra and going to St John's, but both of those schools are a good deal short of T1... I mean St John's is ranked around 88 and Hofstra fell out of the top 100 this past year. What did Hofstra offer that would make you choose them over a first tier school?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Rejections for Fall 2007
« on: January 30, 2007, 03:01:31 PM »
Is anyone else keeping their rejection letters so that when they graduate and become partners at Joe BIGLAW firm, they can frame them and hang them in their office? Personally, I'm looking forward to the day when I get to be the one doing OCI at all the various schools that have ding'ed me...
Then again, I've been known to be a vindictive SOB. ;)

Law School Admissions / Re: So who else applied really late?
« on: January 29, 2007, 11:42:53 AM »
I hope that law schools don't consider this to be 'too late' to apply. My first application went out at the very end of December (I wanted to get at least 1 application out before the end of 2006), and my second only went out about a week ago. Still have two more that I'm considering (but I'm not certain if I could attend them even if I was accepted due to logistical difficulties).
Here's hoping that the posters on LSD really are all the overachievers and that the average accepted applicant just sends them out around now.

PS: I heard someplace that the application cycle breaks down into thirds... the first 1/3 send in applications before Thanksgiving, the second 1/3 send them in mid-January and the last 1/3 send them in the week before the application deadline. I sure hope that's true. It seems to fit fairly well...the earliest being all prepped and ready to go whenever the schools start accepting applications, the second batch having taken the December LSAT or waiting for their fall grades, and the last group being the procrastinaters/I-didn't-get-accepted-to-any-of-my-first-choice-schools-I-better-apply-to-a-few-more type people...

Law School Admissions / Re: Hofstra Should Reduce Its Tuition
« on: January 29, 2007, 11:25:08 AM »
Perhaps Hofstra should tie it's tuition to it's USNWR rankings... as its rankings have dropped a few places over the past couple of years, it's tuition costs should go down the same percentage. As they get things back on the right track, voila... it's tuition goes back up. ;)
Seriously though... Hofstra's just trying to buy better USNWR rankings to get back up into Tier 2.
