how would the future employers know if you are in PT or FT anyway? doesn't your degree say "fordham university school of law"? i would be surprised if they wrote under it something like "yea but it doesnt count cause they went PT anyway"

let's say someone has a kid or kids and goes PT, would this effect them badly if they were not taking a job in the meantime?

Wait List / Re: American Waitlist Thread
« on: March 15, 2008, 11:49:02 PM »
waitlisted, got the letter this friday, 161 (158) and a 3.6, so I was hoping for an admit.  After looking at LSN it looks like the average #s for acceptance and waitlist are almost identical, and looking at last year's LSN, only one person was WL, Acc, I can't imagine this being accurate, what do you think?

I also need to figure out where I'm gonna be before the summer, goin to the Middle East June - Aug so need to take care of moving arrangements before then.

Anyone have any idea how many ppl get off the WL?

I didn't think it was worth the money, I had much better luck sending it to my undergrad's career center, as well has having some trusted friends and lawyer relatives take a look at it.  If I were you, I wouldn't bother with the company at all, all they did for me was some minor grammar things and switched sentences around, without explaining to me why they needed to make these changes, I felt some of the editing was aimless.

how does one know if they have received a scholarship from UMIA? i didn't get anythign in the initial acceptance letter, does that mean no money for me?

also, i didnt do a fafsa yet, do i need to fill that out before i can find out how much schools are giving?

moved up a few points on this last test, waiting to hear from 7 more schools.  havent been rejected anywhere yet, thank gd, but im sure they will be coming in soon.

just sent in an app to fordham pt today, i guess that was a waste of $$ being so late in the game, but i figured i didnt have that much to lose, except of course the application fee.


good luck everyone!

did the schools ask you to send the scores to them when you received notification? i called one school to ask if this was a good idea in order to expedite the time that it would take for them to receive the score from LSAC and they said they wouldnt take it, not to worry.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: international law basics

for the top intl programs, is that referring to intl business/economics side or intl human rights side, or i guess maybe not distinguished?  i'm assuming that a intl business law program that is ranked well at a certain school doesnt really correlate with their public intl law program, right?
