Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Re: North Africans

This is actually the topic of much debate right now...

I expect that law schools consider ethnicity to be a self-selected category. While the government has strict guidelines, most schools probably do not.

CRAP!  I could have applied to both Widener campuses for free if I'd gotten my app off by 12/31...now it's $60.   >:(  Still it's kinda cool that you can apply to both campuses with one app (apparently).

I think the 12/31 fee waiver was just for paper apps - they made all online apps free though, no matter when you apply.

Oh yeah, the degree does travel outside of PA, especially into Jersey, Maryland, VA and DC.  We have a semester program in DC actually.  And, if the stats are right that career services gave me last spring, only 52% of the class of 2005 stayed in PA.  The rest work outside the state.

Thanks Kilroy. Which campus do you attend? Anything we should know?  :)

Law School Admissions / Re: Anyone heard from Penn State?

Does anyone know what schedule Penn State is on as far as requesting new LOR's from LSAC? My second LOR has been there for a week, and it's the only think I need to be complete, but PSU still doesn't seem to have requested it (or rather, LSDAS still doesn't appear to have sent it).

Congrats to both of you! I'm still waiting on a decision (I just got my second LOR in last week) - wish me luck!

I am a college admission counselor, and for our purposes, we will consider Middle-Eastern students to be Asian if they wish. They're still eligible for our minority scholarships.

Hmmm....I disagree. I would indicate that you are of Lebanese descent. URM is not limited to strict sub-categories...diversity is wide-ranging. I'm sure Muslims and Lebanese Americans probably are under-represented in American law schools.

Thanks bfree! To give an idea about how Carlisle compares...The transitional building there is actually quite nice, but the main drawback is that's it's right along a busy highway. They did a really good job of turning it into a more than suitable academic building though (I think it used to house a phone company or something). Also, the employment numbers seem to be on a definite upward trend. Remember that just a couple of years ago, PSU wasn't even in the top 100. They're rising quite quickly. I'm interested in seeing where they rank when the '07 rankings are released (I'm sure the 100M can't hurt).

Oh woops, I'm sorry, I didn't notice that you'd already applied there  :)
