Just thought I'd pass on the information in case you hadn't heard.

In a May 2, 2005 letter from Ave Maria's Michael O. Kenney (Associate Dean for External Affairs)

Quote
I am pleased to inform you that the Accreditation Committee of the American Bar Association voted to recommend full accreditation for Ave Maria School of Law.  The matter now moves to the Council of the ABA Section of Legal Education, which has the authority to make the decision.  The Council will consider the Accreditation Committeeís favorable recommendation at the June 17, 2005 meeting.  The Council's decision will then be presented to the ABA House of Delegates at the ABA's annual meeting in August for ratification.

Wait List / Re: BYU wait list
« on: May 04, 2005, 09:05:27 PM »
I was requested to interview.  In the meeting I was told that I was sorta kinds waitlisted.  I was told that they "...didn't know if they would be able to let me know this Thursday..."  I told them that my waiting window was REALLY small.  Then I was told that they would let me now immediately on Thursday if they were able to move on my file.

Plus, I got that they were past due making decisions on people who went complete after February 1 (even if there app was in by then).  Now, I am nothing special, so I think that they will be reviewing most waitlisters/late completes this Thursday.

I got a waitlist update letter from GMU today.  They want to know if I've made other plans or am still interested.  I also see that they sent out a bunch of rejections.  Anybody else either way?

Got the same thing.  I'm also a URM and I have pretty shabby numbers.  There was no fee waiver in mine... the way I see it a law school is never going to tell me it's too late to give them $65.00.  If I'm not worth reviewing for free do they REALLY want people like me?

Simple solution: Blacks shouldn't be allowed to go to law school b/c they never pass the bar anyway.

Sweetie, I think ya forgot the to add the "hole" right before "one" in your name.

Others... I ended up writing exactly what I was thinking and my relatives said thay have a new found understanding of and respect for the person I am.  They never knew the activist side of me so I think it was refreshing for them to hear... let alone for me to say!

-=Thanks all=-

"That CANNOT be a good thing.  I haven't heard that.   :-\"

Don't take too much from that.  I don't want to be one of the people one this board who goes around sh1tting on people's balloons.  Just what four or five people have told me.  One of them got her BS and soon MS from Case and decided to go to CSU (nine or so blocks down the street) because of the regional strength of CSU as supposed to the undertones of disrespect for Case Law grads.  So, she may be tainted... who knows.  Just thought I'd give that view.  Any other Clevelanders here either way?

To be totally transparent, let me say that I did NOT get into Case and did get into CSU (where I'll be in the Fall).  But, I'll be working for a few hours a week at Case for the benefits.

From what I've heard from Case students and grads the City does not like Case grads.  So, I would think that Case grads would place better in places other than Cleveland.

To the OP:

Itís good that youíre aware that cities can be dangerous.  Itís much better than those who move to the city oblivious of that fact.  Donít let your thoughts cripple you but DO keep them in your mind.

Combining some of what has been said.  Walk assertively (donít look like a suburbanite afraid of the dark).  Take a self defense class.  However, more than a specific martial art, I would suggest that you take a rape prevention class.  Most Universities, local police departments, or cities have them.  The difference is that in rape/attack situation the idea is not to stay and fight but to quickly stun/delay and GET AWAY.

I think weapons are useless in this type of situation unless youíre willing to actively carry them every time youíre walking.  So if you are willing to have a can of spray in your hand, unsheathed knife, or hip holstered gun donít bother.  You wonít have time to retrieve it while youíre being attacked.
