I hear you...but I'm a firm believer in stirring the sleeping giant.  Fuckers.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Any questions about NYU...

Hello...I am probably entering Albany (or MAYBE St. John's or rutgers PT) next fall...it would be a dream to transfer over to NYU in my 2L.  Do you know of any folks who have been able to make that happen?

I wworked as a leagl aid/admin. assist. in an insurance defense firm for a very brief period; it completely turned me off of the concept of law school for a while. Soul-LESS...

well, looks like all of us will just have to study our asses off, won't we?

I applied to St. John's in late January and am still waiting...my LSAT is four points below the median, but at the median for PT.

As for my GPA, I have a 3.6 in a recent 2nd degree program...My first GPA from seven yrs ago was a pitiful 2.1, but I'm hoping that they notice the whole "older, wiser, accomplished career" thing.  Good luck to all.

I just got accepted to Albany as well, and visited their open house on 3/4.  My thoughts:

Pro:

1. Proximity to government and state courts a big plus.  Good lawyering/clinical programs.
2. the TOWN of Albany is not too expensive, in terms of rent.
3. Career services says 1/3 of recent grads found work in NYC
4. Bar Passage up to 88%; class size down from 800 to 670.
5. Very friendly faculty and student body.

Con:

1. $$$$! The school is 37K as of 07-08...with living expenses, you're talking about 50K a year.
2. Assuming you WANT to prac. in NYC, you should be way up in your class rank.
3. I come from Providence, which has way more to do (then again, if you tend to be distracted easily, a semi-boring town might be the best thing that ever happened to your GPA).
4. No real campus to speak of.  I was afraid to ask if there was even a gym (maybe law students are able to use SUNY's).

So that's my two cents thus far... Would I go there? Sure, but I wanna see what if I get into Rutgers Newark or St. John's first.  With a 155 LSAT, I think I only have a shot at the PT program for those two.  Any thoughts on the relative ease/lack thereof of transferring up to FT?

I would like to see Albany move to the top 100, since their bar pass rate shot up to 88% this year.  Plus, I was accepted there ;)

Don't lose hope, it's only Feb., you still got some time to go.  If you have the time and money, your chances may increase if you visit the schools in-person and speak with some of the important decision making people to emphasize your background, etc.  Because honestly, they only have about 10-20 minutes to read your application and they may not fully grasp your valuable work experiences. That's my two cents.

Wouldn't that just annoy them?
