Hello n00bs.

Dawn - which schools are you waiting to hear from?

Hey RBG...

I have applied to Touro Law Center and Hofstra University...the only law schools on Long Island, where I live.  The impetus behind my choice of schools is strictly practical, as my life isn't conducive to me attending school far from my mother (who is disabled).  Hofstra is my first choice, so we'll see what goodies my mailfairy brings me in the coming weeks.

Thanks for asking  ;)

Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to check in and say hello  :)  I'm a social worker from NY and currently work with the homeless.  In my other life I am a ceramic and stained glass artist.  I won't bore you with the other stuff  ;)

I tend to be somewhat reticent on the boards until I am lured from lurkdom  (and that could be for any number of reasons) ;)

Happy to be here  ;D

Dawn

Acceptances / Re: Do schools ever send rejections in big envelopes?
« on: March 11, 2005, 09:27:08 AM »
Okay everyone, here's the verdict....

I am invited to do the Trial Admissions Program. It is for one month this summer, and as long as I get a 2.3, I am in. They even have three scholarships that they offer to people who do really well that are awarded for the fall.

Obviously, I would have prefered an outright acceptance, but at least I will be going to LS. And with my LSAT (147), I cannot be picky!!

It's funny, they didn't word it like a rejection at all. They just say "you are invited..." not "you suck but here's an alternative."

Well, I am excited to start and now I will really be able to get a jump on things!!

Congratulations legalkitty!  I am sure you will do well!

Towanda say it isn't so ...

I was hoping the OP was right. I figured if they're accepting 2.9s I'd be an auto-admit at Yale, what with my URM status and all.



LOL!

I was naive in that by soft factors they meant race.

This is simply conjecture...since you are not privvy to anyone else's application materials.  Is it hard for you to accept that an applicant of color may have more impressive "soft" factors than you (other than race, of course)?  Better writing skills, more prestigious WE, stronger LOR's, etc?

You say that you believe LSN is a good representation of the applicant pool at the schools you speak of...have you considered the thousands of applicants who have not posted to LSN?  The hundreds, if not thousands, of applicants of color who possess stellar numbers and strong application packages and were still rejected?  No, you just want to rant about the unqualified ones who stole your spot.  ::) 


Can you post a link to your LSN profile so we can evaluate your claims for ourselves?

To the OP...Give me a friggin break!  I assume your feelings about people of color have are not limited to your frustration about being waitlisted at certain schools.  Stevie Wonder could see that LSN is nowhere near an accurate representation of law school applicants throughout the country.  Don't blame your seemingly weak application and subsequent waitlist status on us.   ::) 

I get "annoyed" at people who believe they should be an auto admit based on their lsat and ugpa alone.  Contrary to popular belief around here, it doesn't always work that way, even at HYS and the rest of the T14.

And as far as your comments about why there are specific clubs for students of color...you obviously aren't worth the energy it would take to explain why these kinds of clubs exist  ::)

LSAT horror stories / Re: experimental section feb 12, 2005 lsat?

It was the first section of the test.  In my case it was an extra LR section (and it was "easier" than most), but others had an extra AR section.  Not sure if anyone had an experimental RC section or not.

I had a feeling the first LR section was the experimental section since it was a bit easier than the other two...DANG IT!  I was crossing my fingers and hoping that was a legitimate section, lol.

Congrats Georgialax!

I am waiting for (hopefully) good news from Touro (and Hofstra) as well.
