Choosing the Right Law School / I find this weird..
« on: May 08, 2008, 04:31:06 PM »
Has anyone else NOT heard back from schools yet?

I've heard back from every school I've applied to, except one.


Anyone else not hear back from the dreadfully slow admissions department?

I think it really depends. The first year at your school is intended to make connections and supposed to help you later in your law career.  That's what I read anyway.

I have a few friends who have transferred. One of my friends got accepted to Seton Hall and Rutgers-Newark last year, but decided to go to Thomas Jefferson because, he wanted to "get away."

He's now trying feverishly to get them to accept him again, and noticed he made a mistake. But, he did really well and got almost all A's, plus he had a really good undergrad GPA.

I think it's all up to what you want to do, if you get into the top 5-10% at any school, u can pretty much transfer where you want. Right now, as it stands, I'm going to Roger Williams University. But, if I get into Suffolk, NESL or Rutgers, I'm going there. It's just the waiting game.

I'm not letting it bother me anymore though.

Good luck.

I got a rejection letter from New York Law School that was about 1 paragraph and basically said

"You suck. You have no shot. Take a nap."

I think they are the most obnoxious law school in New York. They think they are on top of the world. I do not understand how I even got outright rejected from there considering I got wait listed at Hofstra and they are ranked 99. I Dunno, I think NYLS needs to come off its high horse and go back to sea world. Plus their admissions office is really obnoxious and rude. I tried to call once to find out about my application, I got sighs, rude behavior and a comment that went EXACTLY like this:

"I understand that you want to know fast about your stats, but you sent in your application ONLY 4 weeks ago SIR. I recommend you do not call back here for at least 3 weeks so that we have some TIME to look at your application. Please let us have the time to review your application appropriately." CLICK

I think it's a joke that they are allowed to talk to students like that. End.

Actually- your GPA is solid- u think of retaking LSAT and waiting a year to reapply??

Meh...I don't really want to take a year off, I don't think I have the patience. I'm going to try and tough it out wherever I Get in and try to transfer after doing really well.

A lot of people think it's risky to attempt this approach, but having confidence in your abilities and going for your dreams is more important than what some people say on some message board. It IS hard to transfer, but I think whats more important is how you approach it and how you handle yourself at school.

Im still waiting on 2.  You'll probably hear within a week or 2.  I just got like 5 or 6 in the last couple weeks.  But you should probably expect lots of WL's.

Yeah, u could not have been more right "Madness," I got a Wait List from Quinnipiac, New England School of Law and Hofstra (earlier in the cycle).

NESL and Quinnpiac both came this week.

I'm hoping that Suffolk and Rutgers are holding out waiting for some people to tell them whether they are coming or going and maybe, just maybe, I'll get a seat.

I kind of have an advantage with Rutgers-Newark because of the NJ status. I know that most people think it has nothing to do with anything, but I'm pretty sure they have almost 60% NJ Residents.

On Hofstra Wait List...nada. They said prob not til after June 15th, and I'm guessing some poeple hear back as early as May. But, if your on the border like me then you prob wont hear back til end of summer.

Anyone else dealing with what I'd like to call, "The Wait List Blues?"

I got waitlisted at:

New England School of Law
Hofstra University

What is the probability of coming off Wait Lists? I got accepted into Roger Williams and may attend there anyway, but I was just wondering how high the possibility is that one would come off the wait lists?

Thanks fellow LSDers


Have you checked in with them, maybe an email or something? 

I called all of them once, and heard that they hadn't looked at the file yet, would soon.

This wait is driving me up the wall. I guess its cool that I have not gotten rejected yet (to the best of my knowledge), but what are they waiting for? I had to send a seat deposit for RWU and I do not know if I definitely want to go there. The deposit was due the 15th of April, so I had really no choice, just in case I did not get in anywhere else.

Is it me, or do they make you wait, and wait, and wait, and wait some more?
