maybe your numbers are really high?


Trust me, that def was not the case. I scored 157 and have a sub 3.0 gpa due death in my immediate family. Maybe my addendum was really good.


Hey congrats then.

On another note, I got something from QU in the mail today. That place looks like a country club, its almost too nice and pretty. I find myself wishing I could go there instead of higher ranked schools. It just doesn't seem practical though given my options. Regardless, I'll be there for the admitted students event on the 5th. I'm fully expecting it to be very impressive, because that's just how Quinnipiac is.


yeah, everyone keeps commenting on how pretty the campus is. Guess I'll see on the 5th.

I wish the dean would respond to my emails about my financial concerns.

so i went to the open house today and the structure of the building was so circular... it gave me a headache. maybe its just me but everything veered off at curves and angles. made me miss the layout of regular buildings. pretty campus though.

I was there today and I was immediately turned off that the intellectual property concentration had no representation whatsoever during the academic course offering discussion. The building was ok but the least of my concerns with that program. Not sure what I really expected from it but I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.

The professors were all nice. The law school is a newer looking building and the law library also looked fairly modern with a ton of room to study and resources available. Apparently parking is free for all students. The "mock class" was a little underwhelming for me. The program is typical in the first year, but they seem to offer a number of externships and clinics if that's something that interests you. I think the program looks okay but probably not the one for me.

I was very underwhelmed. I went for the more scholarship interview with hopes of liking the school, but there was something about it I didn't like. Too small possibly and almost none of the students had anything lined up for the summer (1l). That is worrisome. And a few I talked to were only trying to clerk with there local small town judge.

How did the interview go? I signed up for one in April. What did you talk about and when do you think you will hear about possible scholarship increase?

In the acceptance letter there was an option to schedule an interview/open house/tour to discuss possibly increasing your scholarship amount.

I also went to the open house on Saturday. My observations:

Mock class: kind of interesting and you could tell the future gunners (participating, TAKING NOTES IN A MOCK CLASS LIKE WE WERE GOING TO BE TESTED ON IT). I liked the professor, but I doubt that the real thing is that entertaining.

Housing/Financial Aid Discussion: really don't need to explain that.

Student Q/A: helpful, 3L's wouldn't say if they had a job lined up, and an alum who graduated during the boom was doing well but did not have to job search ITE. Liked it, but there seemed to be little interest in it.

Career Services: started out well, but they really seemed flustered at the end when a kid asked about the employment jobs for the Class of 2010. Two reps from OCS stuttered to say 90%, and took a while to admit that only 30% \ :shock: were at private firms and were reluctant to go into further detail about the others. They did say that all but 2 people reported, but that private firm statistic along with their lack of desire to explain employment for the others turned me off and made me lose confidence in what they were saying. When we asked for more details, they seemed flustered and started fiddling with some papers looking for the "statistics." One lady from OCS even said "do you really want me to explain the rest" like we were inconveniencing her.

Obviously, the student reps (1Ls, 3Ls, alum) were cherry-picked among those who had good jobs (e.g. one person was from a biglaw firm in NYC who was third in his class and was on LR and two were federal appellate clerks).

Bottom Line: I liked the smallness and close-knit feeling of the law school, and the fact that everyone repeated that line of closeness and lack of competitiveness made me think it was for real. I did like that no 1L class was larger than 60 students. That was probably my favorite part. When I asked about the realities of the job market, the sentiments provided on TLS were driven home by 3Ls--it is incredibly, incredibly tough.

I always liked to think that posters were exaggerating about ITE. But the fact is, after talking with students, I do not think choosing this school gives us the best options. OCS clearly was uncomfortable talking about employment statistics and definitely came across as insincere when saying 90% were employed by there unwillingness to break down the so-called 90% employed, and the fact that only 30% place in private firms is alarming.

I was going in hoping to be wowed and excited (to justify picking QU with scholly over others), and I walked out after 3 and a half hours later totally underwhelmed.

For the interview, do you need anything that would make them increase the amt of scholly? like a higher offer from another school? or stuff like you had a great gpa last semester etc.

No, on the letter it says they want to get to know you, because they know your numbers and resume. They want to get to know you as a person, not a number. Hope jeffrey cooper interviews you. He was awesome.

Holding out for higher ranked schools, but it the school looks gorgeous and if I don't get in anywhere better; then I don't think I'd hate attending.

2.34 UGPA (With a 3.8 in graduate work)
160 LSAT

Just curious, how did you get into a graduate program with a 2.34 ugpa?

It really depends on the scholly. Hamden is a long way from Los Angeles.
