Law School Admissions / Re: Anyone heard from SUNY=BUFFALO

I agree with a previous poster. If they are taking so long to get applications reviewed, it probably means they give a good look at each application, at least that's what I'm hoping.

WNY winters are pretty freakin' cold, but it's all relative. Winter where I am in Japan is sissy compared to Rochester/Buffalo, but as far as I'm concerned, despite my 10 WNY winters... it's cold. So if you're worried about the cold/snow, you'll get used to it. The only thing that may be hard is that it lasts from late October to April... Otherwise, it's not too bad. At least there's a healthy amount of snow to go along with the cold.

That's amazing that they replied to you! I've sent then 2 emails over the past month or so, and nothing. It's pretty frustrating, but what can you do... especially me, as they're my first choice. But 12 weeks?! I pray it doesn't take that long with me.

Does anyone know anything about TAP with NY? I've been sent a link to do their paperwork (though I don't think they'll give me any love.... too much income this year) but I'm not sure of a deadline. It's kinda funny that UB says it may take 12 weeks but that could eclipse the TAP deadline and then according to their website, you're responsible for any difference in $ that you would have received from them. I hope that makes sense.

So to the OP, sorry, nothing heard here either... and Mail to Japan is going to take FOREVER!

Not to steal the thread or anything, but anyone have anything new they've heard from UB, or about UB?

Good Luck!

Sorry i don't have anything of value to add, but I'm also curious about MSU. Anyone know anything about the dual degree program with the University of Ottawa?

Cool.... my report was sent on the same day I think. Sadly though, the mail service to Japan is about 10 days longer.......

thanks for the info.

CONGRATS! Glad to hear that UB is starting to send out acceptance letters. I was curious when your applications was completed? Hopefully I can get some sort of idea how long it takes to review an application and send out the decision. (I emailed them a week ago and haven't  heard anything....)

Also if you don't mind my asking, what were your stats?

Again, congrats!


This may seem stupid but do most schools allow you to choose your schedule for your 1st semester or are you just assigned sections? Or if you're assigned, can you request early AM sections... just curious because I've always like 8am classes, and that'll keep me on a similar schedule to my wife a.k.a. the Bread Winner.

Great info so far, keep up the ramblings.

othius....are you on the JET Programme?  If so, me too.  I know what you are, we are getting paid to eat nicely wrapped omiyages and play on the computer...Im not complainin...

MJ- Yes, my wife and I are on the JET programme and live in Shizuoka-ken. And for the record, green tea KitKat's are pretty tasty. I'm also a big fan of green tea ice cream. It takes some getting used to but it's amazing.

Nice fat pay check for doing what? I've taught about 10 lessons in 4 weeks. And the 3rd term is a joke.
Gotta love it. Where you living?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Regent U.
« on: January 13, 2005, 06:00:20 PM »
Just received my first acceptance letter from Regent University. It's a safety school and I don't plan on attending, but it's still nice to find out that someone wants you. :)

I have been looking at Regent as well (actually got accepted today!) and I like the Christian view of Law bit they talk about, and I am definately interested as it falls in line (mostly... P. Robertson's a bit over the top) with my philosophy but I feel that it may hamper opportunities outside of religious groups, firms, etc.

Personally, I don't plan on attending as a degree from any other school will get you in the door of any religious law organization, but a Regent degree might scare off other opportunties. Does that make sense?

All in all though, Va. Beach is a great location, and the campus is really nice considering it's so new. They've done a great job of making it look "old and classic".

My 2 yen.
