So I got this from my pre-law office today (in part):

- They are still accepting applications for fall 2005
- They’re granting fee waivers to all students at my school interested in applying
- They are more than willing to fly seriously interested students from my school down to AZ to check out their school
- LSAT range: 151 – 156          GPA range: 2.8 – 3.8
- Because Phoenix is not accredited, you won’t be able to receive federal funding (tuition is $23,000 per year) but PhoenixLaw has private loan funds and you would borrow straight from the school.  If they are not accredited by your third year, you wouldn’t have to pay back the loans you took out.

I found that last one sort of interesting.  I have looked around the board and seen little but what I have seen is negative.  Have any of you locals had a chance to see it?  Did any of you got he the panal discussion? What did you think?  Anybody apply?

I'm sorry... who are you people. Please don't take that the wrong way.  I am a 22 year old college senior graduating and going straight to LS and am wondering if the buying thing is normal for people in my position (cuz, I sure as heck can't afford a condo right now).  Are you all a few years out of college with jobs or families?  How are you getting the money to do this?

If the file, as it appears to, portrays a female who is under aged I would like to have it publicly noted that I had no intent of downloading a file with such content.  I assumed, from the post heading, that it was a news file containing current events.

LOL man, something tells me that if there was a place where being an average white guy would NOT be held against you in the precess BYU would be it.  Its just that BYU is the feeder school for BYU-LS.  They try to get (from the numbers I've seen) 50% of their class from BYU.  150 BYU students were admitted to BYU-LS last year, 100 went.  I wonder what the stats on BYU-H and BYU-I atudents getting to BYU-LS are.  Have you taken a look at your BYU-H's updated Action Report?

Thank you guys so much.  I have taken three big breaths INNNNNNNNNNNNNN and OUUUUUUUTTTT and have refocused on getting the money rather than being sad about not having it  :)

That is freak'en great!

"Dear Sir, you and your institution are like unto a monkey's ass!"
"Dear applicant, please come to my law school."

Hmm, I guess sending warm letters and speaking kindly on the phone don't get you as far as telling a school to go bite themselves.  Yellow.... Cheers man,congrats!

Where should I go next fall? / *Please* -- help me sort out finances

I have been rejected at most of the schools I thought I had a chance to get into.  I now only have slight to far reaches so I am being realistic and focusing on the one and only acceptance I have received which is at Western New England.  This is the first time I am out and on my own financially (no paternal help).

In my estimation I am looking at $49,753 per year or $149,259 for my JD.  That’s tuition and fees, insurance, $1,500 for books (is that too high/low?), and $1,500/month living expenses.  I will qualify for subsidized student loans but, of course, my amount is over the amount one can barrow.  So I have to add X amount for interest for a private loan to that.  So $160,000 to $170,000 for the whole enchilada.

I want to do public interest.  WNEC is a T4 school.  Those two things combined will make me lucky to make $40,000 to $5X,000/year post grad. Am I about right with this?  I think I can live on $3000-$4000 a month so that leaves me making payments of just under $1,000/month to the loan.  So it should be paid off in about 14 to 15 years.

Am I missing something? What are your thoughts on paying a premium for a lower-grade (that sounds horrible) law school?  I’m down and in a really bad spot right now :'( Pease share your thoughts.

I got a letter from them last week telling me I would get a scholorship if I applied.  What are the bad things you have heard about them?  What happened at UT?

Did any of you get a letter from CSU’s FinAid office that said you were missing a “Law School Institutional Application” (or something like that)?
