Wait List / Villanova, waitlists in general
« on: April 03, 2008, 02:08:16 PM »
So here's my story....I'm sure there are a million that feel this way, but I'm getting completely frustrated with the admissions process. I thought by now I would have heard from everywhere, and I have for the most part. I just want to know where I'm going so I can start planning. However, like so many out there, this cycle seems neverending because of the massive number of waitlists I'm on (I know there are people with more but still, sucks). The only school I've gotten an acceptance from that I would be happy attending is Seton Hall (i know theres a lot of hate, but its the 1 of 2 T2 schools I've been accepted to-- the other is L&C and I have no interest in working over there--just applied bc of a fee waiver). Sometimes I feel like giving up and just settling for SHU but I'm on the waitlists for some pretty good schools, all of which I'd be happy attending: Penn State, Miami, Rutgers Camden (deferred at Newark), UConn, and Villanova. So I have decided I'm going to pursue most of them - maybe not Miami or Penn State, not sure yet, and will withdraw as soon as I decide. So to finally get to the point, after the standard LOCI which I've already sent, what else do you do? I'm visiting Villanova on Friday and am scheduled for a tour. Does anyone have any advice? How do I stand out? There's going to be another student there but I think it might just be the two of us. What kind of ?'s do I ask? How do you dress? I know for an ASD its much different because you're already in, i Just wore jeans and a cute cardigan. I'm still in undergrad, female, and don't own a women's suit yet haha. Also, will they remember I visited when they go to the waitlist in a few months? How do I get them to? I know this post is incredibly long and more like just my mind spilled out on a forum haha but I'd appreciate any help -- general or specific to the schools I mentioned. Also, how would you rank the schools (not according to USnews) in order of which you would attend...including SHU... would looove some feedback.

Where should I go next fall? / Seton Hall
« on: March 01, 2008, 09:46:37 PM »
Okay, so I just got into Seton Hall part time evenings. I've also been accepted to NYLS, Pace, McGeorge, Suffolk, and Lewis&Clark all full time, and waitlisted at Villanova and Penn State. Seton Hall is the highest ranked of my choices, but I really only applied part time to increase my chances of getting in, with little desire to actually go to school part time. If I go, I plan on trying to transfer into full time after my first semester. Would you choose SHU PT over any of those schools listed FT? I'm deferred at Rutgers Newark FT and would go there over all the rest if I get in. Any thoughts though if those end up being my only choices? PS- Cost is fortunately not an issue, and I hope to work in a medium sized firm in the tri-state..not interested biglaw

also waiting on St. Johns and Brooklyn PT

Where should I go next fall? / L&C

So... I've been accepted to NYLS, Pace, Suffolk, McGeorge, and today Lewis & Clark. I've been waitlisted at Villanova and deferred at Rutgers and Miami. I still need to hear back from Seton Hall, St. Johns, and Brooklyn PT. With my options (of my acceptances)...where would you all go? I know L&C is ranked the highest of my choices, and Portland is great and all that, but everyone I know and love is on the east coast (Im a jersey girl, dont hate hahaa) so I have no plan on living out there for good. Why can't law students just go to school wherever, and then get jobs where they want to live? :/

Law School Applications / PT
« on: February 05, 2008, 01:59:38 PM »
I was wondering if anyone knew if you were able to switch your FT status to PT once your app has already been submitted and complete?? And if so, how would you go about doing so? Do you call, what would be a good explanation, etc? I'm only asking because I know it's easier to get into a school's PT program than its FT and I'm not having the greatest luck so far this cycle... any feedback would be great, thanks

Where should I go next fall? / Villanova

i'm pretty new the board...I read a lot of what you all say but have only posted once myself. Anyway, my numbers are 156, 3.4, and after weeks of incessantly checking the Villanova status checker online (one of the only schools that I applied to that had this option, thank God or else I'd be going on every 5mins and going nuts) it says, "Decision Made/Mailed: 2/4/08"....it then says I have to wait 4-7 business days for the letter to get to me. My question is, how realistic is it for me to be REALLY REALLY hoping for an acceptance? I'm an Asian Indian female...I know I'm not an urm, but, just laying out there in case it helps to get a better picture of where I stand. I don't have amazing soft factors-- just the average extracurriculars and volunteer work, legal internship, etc. but I'm pretty sure my personal statement and diversity statements are awesome. Anyway, most of you on here have amazing stats and are applying to the top schools, but Villanova is one of the top of my list given my LSAT so any friendly but honest feedback would be great. I think I need to calm my nerves in either direction while I wait for the mail this week... anyway, thanks and congrats to everyone on their acceptances! good luck to the rest :)
