Law School Admissions / Re: Please help!
« on: March 01, 2008, 09:14:19 PM »
Don't be embarrassed about the application fees, I only applied to two schools that I didn't have fee waivers for b/c of the fees (and I'm married and in grad school, so I'm supposed to be an "adult". 

Also, I worked part time while taking classes full time, so I don't really have any extra-curriculars to list.  I just hope that they see the list of jobs and take that into consideration. 

I actually have pretty similar numbers to you, and I have gotten into U of Miami and DePaul so far (and I'm not even an URM -- that will help you!).  I'm still not complete at Seton Hall, so I haven't heard from them.  If I do hear, I'll let you know. 

GOOD LUCK!!!!!  Let us know how it goes for you!

Thank you so much!  I got a letter from one school and an e-mail from another, so now I don't know what to expect.  I need to know how much I should stalk the mail-man.    ;)

via e-mail, phone, or snail mail?  Could those who have received a decision let me know so that I can channel my obsessing in the proper direction?         ???

ahhhh, the internet makes everyone's life more interesting and job more challenging . . . .
they probably get pretty irritated that there's so much communicating going on.

Thank you!  and my mom was visiting and on the phone with my Grandma when I got the e-mail, so I was able to share it with everyone at once, which made it that much nicer! 

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: DePaul Acceptance
« on: February 29, 2008, 09:51:58 PM »
I got an acceptance e-mail today, Dean's Merit Scholarship for $18k/yr, renewable. 

I know this is a little off-topic (sorry Cosmo), but will you school specifically ask for NeedAccess if it's required?  From what I've seen at some of my schools (not accepted yet), they just want FAFSA.  I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything that could help me get $$$$.

I can't answer for sure, but I just got accepted into two schools (U of Miami and DePaul) with only one letter, and it was from 2005.  You could probably get the prof to at least write it now and maybe keep it on file for a while?  Or you can register with LSDAS now (you're good for a few years that way) and have the letters sent in.  If you don't want to use them later, you can always make them inactive.  Just remember to do that before you apply, otherwise they'll get sent out when the schools request a report.  I guess the main point is, if you plan on asking these profs for LOR's, it's probably better to do it now, or the letters will most likely be pretty generic when you do apply. 

This way you also won't go through the trauma I just experienced, finding out that a prof never even wrote the letter, a week AFTER saying it would be sent out in a day or two.  "But I look at it every day . . . ."  Well, great. But that doesn't mean much to the law schools.

I just heard from DePaul today (yes, with $$$), but I am still waiting on both IU's and Seton Hall.  I am pretty sure  I still have outstanding LOR's, though, so I sort of expect it.  I know IU - I's website said they don't start filling seats (regular decision) until January, and IU - B doesn't start until Feb.  Maybe other schools are similar?

Yeah, that was an acceptance from DePaul.  I just got the acceptance e-mail.  With money!
