Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Albany AAMPLE program
« on: March 07, 2005, 05:53:47 PM »
Once again, I speak from what I know about the NYLS Aample program, but it's the same online program so...

I don't think the program is binding because in the Aample brochure for NYLS, they say they will not refund tuition if you fail the classes or pass but decide not to enroll for the fall.

I also got the offer with 2k.  I don't think the offers are soleley based on GPA's, because my GPA was a 3.7

I'm pretty sure you guaranteed admission if you attain a GPA of 2.5 or higher. I was also admitted to the Aample program at New York Law School (also online with NOVA) and talked to the admissions counselor there.

I think the only difference with NYLS is that you are only admitted part time.

I think if I don't get any other admission offers (which may be likely, but I'm hoping will not be the case), I will stick with NYLS.

What do you guys think?

P.S. Congrats on the offers.  Conditional admission sucks, but its better than a flat out rejection right?

Yeah, I didn't know they had a conditional admissions program either.  NYLS was a reach for me, and I am surprised, and very very happy, to be offered another chance at admission.

According to the information I have, the cost for this program is about 3,250 and this will be deducted from first sememster tuition if you are admitted and enroll for the Fall 2005 semester.

As for my numbers, I had a good GPA of 3.7, but my LSAT's were below 150.

I'm still waiting to hear from others, but a little relieved to have a back up (of some sort)

Choosing the Right Law School / Conditional Admission Program at NYLS

I had just been rejected from Rutgers-Camden, so this conditional admission offer is looking pretty good right now.

Does anybody know anything about conditional admissions at NYLS or anywhere else?

This particular offer entails that I take 2 law courses online in the summer (with NOVA), and if I get a GPA of 2.5 or higher, I will be offered admission for Fall 2005 PT (day or night division).

Any help will be appreciated.  Thanks.

Do the Rutgers schools give preference to in-state residents?

Hey, I'm Filipina too!

Syracuse, Feb 15

It seems to me they want all copies of Tax Returns and W-2's by that date as well.

Law School Admissions / Classes on LSDA Reports?
« on: January 24, 2005, 09:42:53 AM »
This topic has probably been covered, but I can't seem to find where.  I just viewed one of the reports to be sent to a school, but I don't see a list of the classes I took.  I know that adcoms look at these, so was I supposed to have sent them a copy of my transcript or are they included in the report and I just cant view it?

That makes sense, thanks!

The question asks of your "percentage" of contribution to undergraduate expenses.  As "method of financing" they say "work, savings, loans, scholarships, etc."  Do you think I can include grants (which I maintained by doing well in school, but were need- based grants) as a type of "financing"?

Thanks in advance!
