Wait List / Re: Florida - "No Action" = Deferred?
« on: December 26, 2005, 12:04:38 AM »
That's not a waitlist; at a waitlist, you have a much better chance.

Your letter seem more like a deferral, which can be compare to "We will take you if you get very crappy applicants this year," which is not likely be the case.

But, you still have hope/chance untill you get that rejection letter. 

I just got an email from Florida saying theyve reviewed my app and decided not to make a decision.  They say I will get a final decision by April 1. via mail.  Is this considered a deferral?


That "usually" end up being a late rejection very late in the admission game.  Expect as late as July.

so youre saying their 'decision by April' will be that im waitlisted?  what are you basing this on?

Below is a list of schools that you might get in with your chance of getting in next to the name of each school (keep in mind that the chances are NOT very accurate, because it's simply a prediction and it might be outdated as well)

May I ask what your nationality is and which school you attended for undergrad and your major?

Why do you want to go into law?  Are you plan to stay in America after law school?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: 153???
« on: December 25, 2005, 11:18:02 AM »
Stetson should not be on that list.  They even rejected some UF and FSU admits last cycle. 

Here are some ideas to get you started:

University of Detroit Mercy
Capital
Ohio Northern
Oklahoma City
Quinnipiac
South Texas
St. Mary¹s University-Texas
Stetson
Syracuse
Touro
Tulsa
Valparaiso
Vermont
Washburn
Western New England
Whittier College
Widener-DE
Widener-Harrisburg (PA)
Willamette
Wyoming

Where should I go next fall? / Re: FSU Deferral letter?
« on: December 25, 2005, 11:14:35 AM »
Yeah that was one thing about it.  It seemed to be overly posititve.  Besides "highly competitive", it also said "your very impressive record" at the end. I'm not sure what it means exactly. 

You guys are reading way too much into these letter; they are not customized just for you. It is a general letter they send to tons of people.

That's a very common letter that most likely will turn into a rejection letter late in the admission game.

What are your numbers? 

1057
Some how, I find that hard to believe.



 Asians were never traditionally and systematically denied access to higher education, as (some) Hispanic peoples, Native-Americans, African-Americans, and women have been.

Do these 1Ls at visiting school actually get grades and class ranks or do they just get pass and fail?

Where should I go next fall? / What Going Happened to New Orleans 1Ls??
« on: October 03, 2005, 05:00:34 PM »
I guess most of them are taking classes at other law schools as  visiting students, but can they transfer to other law schools or stay at the current law school if they decided not to return to New Orleans which will take a long time for the economy to be back where it used to be (if ever) or do they have to return to (Tulane or Loyala) once the school is ready to take back its students.

I feel bad for those students, especially Loyola's 1Ls due to the school's limited regional reputation (and they probably will have a very hard time finding jobs in New Orleans in the near future) and different law than the rest of the states.

At first I was worried about not getting Bs, now I am afraid I will actually fail out (something I never considered)  :-\

Either you're doing everything wrong or I am just clueless.

I spent about....2 hours a day in addition to class time and I find myself well-prepared for class and pretty much understand the material.  The only time when I was spending more than 3 to 4 hours a day is during the period where I have to do research for my writing class.

I noticed that a lot of my classmates are at the library all the time, but me, I am just chillin' and trying to find some hobbbies. 

We'll see how things turn out in Feb. when grades come out.
