Acceptances / In at Michigan (State)
« on: January 21, 2005, 09:28:24 PM »
Second Acceptance rolled in today: MSU.  Regular envelope but no merit $$$ :(

MSU doesn't pull a very good USN&WR ranking, but they do have an extensive IP program...
I'm really interested in the school based on the curriculum, it's just going to be hard
to make a decision to pay full-tution dollars at a low ranked school. 

Oh well, I guess we'll wait out a few more school decisions... hopefully I'll get more
good news in the coming weeks.

Acceptances / First Acceptance - DePaul
« on: January 18, 2005, 10:22:03 PM »
Received my first acceptance today... DePaul w/24K (8 per year).  I am so relieved to finally hear back.
Until today, I hadn't heard a peep out of any the schools to which I applied.

Law School Applications / Predictions anyone?
« on: November 30, 2004, 11:55:57 PM »
I'm about to send out apps and I thought I'd see what people think of my chances.

LSAT 160 / GPA 2.78 / Degree 2.95
Graduated in 1993... yes 93 not 03!

Over 11 years working in Information Technology.
Over 8 years experience as a managing partner of a regional internet service provider.
I'm seeking to pursue a law degree to practice Communication Law (as extension of my current career).

Here's my list:

Case Western
Catholic University
George Mason
IIT Kent
Indiana University - Bloomington
Michigan State University
Northern Illinois University
Southern Methodist
Univ. of Illinois
Univ. of Texas
Univ. of Toledo
Wake Forest

I realize that my GPA is LOW... VERY LOW for law school.  If in 1989, someone had told me that I would someday be applying to law school, I would have laughed.  It wasn't in the plan.  I was a computer-guru before most people knew what to do with a computer... law was very far from my mind.  Things change, people's interests change, will the ad-coms see it?

If anyone is wants to feel better about their own personal statement, this is your chance to shoot holes in mine.

Law School Applications / LSDAS Report to Schools
« on: October 24, 2004, 12:51:52 PM »
Could anyone provide information regarding how long it normally takes for LSDAS to provide your report to schools?

I'm looking at an early decision program with a November 15 cut-off.  I'm sure that I can complete the application and submit the application at least a week prior to the 15th.  I need to know what sort of lead-time I need to provide LSDAS.  I think LSDAS has everything needed to provide a report: my transcripts are in, GPA has been calc'd, my LOR's are in, and now my LSAT has been posted. 

Any thoughts?  How long has LSDAS taken to provide information to schools based on your past experience(s)?
