Current Law Students / Starting to get scared
« on: June 13, 2005, 01:09:57 PM »
I just got accepted to NYLS from the waitlist.  This is my only acceptance, so for a while before this, I didn't think that law school was going to happen for me.  I was really upset and depressed b/c I had based my future around going. When I first got the NYLS acceptance, I was ecstatic. Now that I'm thinking of all the debt I will have, I'm starting to get very nervous. People are telling me to make sure that I want to go law school 100% before committing to this.  My problem is that I don't think I am 100% sure. I worked for as a paralegal for a year during college and that was when I decided to pursue law. I've been out of school for a year now. Are these pre 1L jitters or should I re-think the whole thing?

New York Law School / The real question about NYLS

How the hell are we going to finance an education at this school??? (assuming no scholarships) It's close to $50,000 a year including tuition, books, rent, living expenses in nyc, etc.  I want to go here but, damn.

Congratulations.  I also sent an additional LOR and letter.  We'll see. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Deezel - When did you find out that you got into St. John's from the waitlist?  And did you originally apply PT?  I'm waitlisted there and would LOVE to get in.

Choosing the Right Law School / Hofstra or NYLS for NYC law?

I like NYLS's location but I understand that Hofstra is ranked higher.  Which would be better if planning to work in NYC after school. I would like to work in a firm (I already know I prob wont be able to work in biglaw).

They apparently had a glitch in their system which sent the admitted students e-mail to all students with an active file.  But I did get in.  Got a call from the admissions office

MSU Duster:  You've heard of people getting off this waitlist in May?

Thanks for your post Kdeevers.  I am also waitlisted at St. John's. I contacted Dean Harrison to see what my waitlist status is but I think I will go ahead and put down my NYLS deposit.  I've heard the same thing that you said regarding Hofstra and NYLS grads getting jobs in NYC.  They are basically the same. Good luck at Hofstra.

Maybe St. John's changed their mind about using the waitlist?  I haven't heard anything at all about it. I guess I will just put my deposit in at NYLS and leave it up to fate. 

AEW:  Where else are you considering?
