Denials / Dinged at Case Western
« on: March 19, 2005, 07:24:49 PM »
got the beautiful slim envelope last night. Oh well, not I'm just waiting on U of Pitts and Ohio State (deferred so far). If neither accepts me its going to be either Capital (who gave me a ton of money), Chicago-Kent (who gave me no $$), and Toledo (who gave me a full ride).

Acceptances / Re: In at OSU!

I'm kinda considering Toledo because they gave me a full ride, but my current 2nd choice is actually Chicago-Kent.

I'm also still waiting word from University of Pittsburgh and Case Western so if either of those accept me, then they will be my 2nd choice.

I'm also really hoping I get in. I'm actually in deferred status so they're looking at my app a 2nd time. I've been told that a decision will be made no later than April 1st. I did get into Chicago-Kent and if OSU doesn't accept me, I'm seriously thinking of Kent. However, OSU is my top choice right now. Unfortunately, I think not being a Ohio resident is a big disadvantage. On the other hand, I'm relying on a 3.5 GPA from Berkeley (the 158 LSAT is within OSU's 25% percentile) and 7 years of work experience doing commercial real estate and production management with DreamWorks Studio.

phone call, no letter please  ;)

Wait List / Re: Ohio State Deferred...what does it really mean?
« on: February 23, 2005, 02:34:45 PM »
I did mention in one of my addendums that I have visited the school and that I have spoken to OSU Law alumni. I'm actually kinda relieved to know that only 5 people were deferred last year because I thought it would be more like 100 people or so. However, only 1 being accepted of the 5 is a little frightening.

Wait List / Ohio State Deferred...what does it really mean?
« on: February 23, 2005, 02:02:49 PM »
I got deferred at OSU and its my top choice school. I sent in another letter of rec, an addendum on why I would like to attend OSU specifically, and an additional addendum on what I have been doing since I applied in November. Anyway, I've been reading some of the posts here from people who have been deferred at other schools and I'm getting the impression that getting deferred is almost like getting rejected. Is it really that difficult to get off the deferred list and get an acceptance? Are the schools looking for those people who are actually going to make an effort to get off the deferred list?

I'm staying optimistic about my chances, but I also don't want to delude myself into thinking that my chances are great. What do you all think?

Wait List / Re: OH-IO: HO-LD

I just got the same letter. So how many spots are open and how many are waitlisted? Basically, what are the chances of getting in?

Denials / Re: Dinged at Catholic

santa clara is a very good school. The professors were are top rate, but hope you don't get Ed Steinman for Criminal Law because if you do, start studying RIGHT NOW. The things I didn't like about it was that it was a very small campus so you don't really get that college experience (if you're looking for that) and the students were (at least in my class) notoriously cut-throat and dramatic. It is very competitive among the students and at least I didn't feel like it was a very group-oriented student body. However, again, it is a very good school and you won't be making a bad choice by attending.

Well here's the deal with my application. I flunked out of Santa Clara Law School back in 1999 mostly because my heart was not in it and I really really really wanted to work in the film industry (which I did). So I think that this was the overriding factor in my rejection...otherwise, my numbers alone should have gotten me in and my resume, personal statement, and letters of rec are all very good.

It just sucks that one factor became the deciding one. Obviously not all the schools I've applied to felt that this was an overriding issue as I've been accepted to 5 schools so far....but still AARRGGHHH!!

Acceptances / the longer they take...
« on: January 27, 2005, 10:43:22 PM »
is it really a bad sign if a particular school hasn't gotten back to you after its sent out acceptance letters? The school I'm wondering about is Ohio State. Is it that or simply that they haven't made a decision yet?
