Wait List / Re: WL @ University of Houston
« on: March 25, 2005, 03:44:52 AM »
For instance, I don't know why this guy got rejected at Houston:

But if he were black, would they still reject him? I doubt it. I'm undecided about the merits of AA. It doesn't affect me personally very often. However, I'm not convinced that the policy achieves it's goals as far as law school admissions is concerned.

AA is a bunch of garbage.


Interesting. That guy has a 2.19 GPA and you two want to blame AA for him not being admitted.

Wait List / Re: WListed at Pepperdine, would a campus visit help?

Bummer,

Got WListed at pepperdine. Would actually making a visit to the school help?

TY

Yes, i would say to visit the campus if it is a reasonable commute for you. Also, I suggest that you send in an additional letter of rec.

Acceptances / Re: Accepted at Pepperdine!

How did you hear??

My app just went complete since my FAFSA was delayed for some reason.

I love how on one of the financial aid portions they asked for overall estimate of net worth and I could truthfully put down $142.17

Seeing that figure almost makes me cry  :(

LOL. Man, I know what u mean. I left my job 6 weeks before the febuary lsat so i could study for it and i have been reduced to playing on-line poker for money ever since.

Anyhow, I requested a status check thru the pepperdine website and they sent me an email saying that they made a decision on my file. I turned in my application on march 1'st and my file went complete just 2 weeks ago. It looks like you'll get a decision real soon. good luck

Acceptances / Re: Seattle U. or Hastings?

Since I'm a 23 year old kid with no real worries, I'd make the move to hastings because of its strong national rep.

But you seem very happy living in seattle, have a home, a husband (who loves his job), and want to practice in the NW. It just seems like it makes more sense to stay put.

Acceptances / Re: chapman vs. whittier
« on: March 24, 2005, 03:46:38 PM »
I live in Connecticut and am most likely attending Chapman (little faith that the schools still holding out on me will respond in time for the cross-continental move).  Last week on a plane from Chicago to Hartford I met a "regular mid-40's guy" who lived in the OC.  When I told him I had been admitted to Chapman Law he RAVED about it.  He had incredibly positive things to say about the school.  Regular business traveler -- his job had nothing to do with law.  Considering this guy was most representative of what my clients will likely be in the future, it really put my mind at ease about Chapman's reputation. It just seemed like a very good (random and fateful) sign.  His enthusiasm pretty much sealed the deal for me.   :)       

Yeah, Chapman gets a lot of love in the OC. You have to remember that even though Whittier has more alumni, Chapman has stronger ties to the local community because of its undergraduate campus.

Acceptances / Accepted at Pepperdine!

Just got word today. I'm very happy since I know that many deserving people here have been waitlisted.

FY1:

I talked to an admissions officer today and she said that they are currently getting ready to send out their last wave of acceptances. Hopefully, you are part of that last wave. good luck!

Well, I just got an email from Pepperdine saying that a decision has been made on my file and will be mailed out 03/22. This is my first decision of the application cycle so I'm hoping for the best. What do you all think?

3.45/159, Asian/Pacific Islander, regular college extras (fraternity involvement, honors list, several other orgs, blah blah), letters of recs from two professors i have worked directly under.


BTW, I turned in my application on the last possible day (03/01) so  they made a pretty quick decision on my file. Thanks for your response

What up everybody,

If a school sends you a fee waiver and invites you to apply, is that a very strong indicator that you'll get accepted? I'm curious because I've been getting a bunch of emails/letters/packets from various law schools in recent weeks encouraging me to apply and mentioning that i qualify for scholarships.

Law School Applications / Re: Greek system leadership EC's

Holding a fraternity/sorority leadership position will NEVER hurt your application.

you're a little too optimistic

If you mean fraternity/sorority involvement will hurt your application by possibly affecting your GPA, then I guess your are correct. However, i highly doubt the add. comm will frown if they see it in your resume.
