Question for those of you that were WL'd around 12/8, when you guys sent in your LOCIs did your status date change and if so how long did it take for you guys?

Any random advice from accepted waitlisters is always appreciated. :D


Let me know if you (or any accepted 0Ls) want to meet!

Not to be creepy or anything Gem...just in case, I would be willing to chaperon. :wink:

That would great! Just got this, so, I've already left campus, but, we can definitely make plans for another get together. We should see who else wants to come along.

Haha! Thanks Jen, we all feel much safer! :lol:

But, seriously, let's coordinate a meet-up. Thanks so much Gem and Jen for offering!

I'll be at the next admitted student day, and would love to meet up then (either before, during, or after).
Equally, I'd love to get a copy of your notes, or any other materials you'd be willing to share that might be useful.

I want to get off to as good a start as possible and if at all possible want to start studying yesterday - got any good tips?

I'm seriously considering the possibility of graduating in 2 1/2 years. If my first year doesn't go as well as I hope, that possibility becomes more remote.

honestly, though, I just want to get started already. Patience is a virtue other people have. Unfortunately, I only decided to go to law school last June, meaning I was too late to start last year. I've been waiting for 2/3 of a year already and am ready to go

Why, thank you.

While I intend to "be all I can be" I do not do so to the detriment of others.
I have often tutored class-mate during exam week and am always happy to help others.
I think if we help each other, we all end up better off.

It'd be a karma thing, if I were some kind of new-age hippie. Which I'm not.

LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL.



And ok to be serious, law school will kick you in the ass once you start. PLEASE ENJOY THIS TIME.

And my notes will do nothing for you because you will have no idea wtf anything means at this point.

Edit: There are several threads around TLS that a geared toward 0Ls. Check those out.

I have a meeting with Dean Brown tomorrow after my classes end, and I'm wondering if I should dress as I would for an interview or if going casual is alright. Really don't want to have to wear a suit to class tomorrow and I don't have time in between to change. Any advice??

I've been working with notes from some 1Ls at Fordham and Cardozo, and I don't think they've been that hard to decipher.

Do not wear a suit, but wearing pants and a nice shirt wouldn't hurt.

My impressions of many Fordham Law male students: they dress very well. I don't see t-shirts too often.

Thanks for the advice...I'll probably go that route. Although I'm not male...

I doubt it, school has never managed to kick me in the ass. Besides, the reason I want to start early is so I don't go crazy. I fully believe I will enjoy my time in law school.
I just figured, I've got a lot of down time now and I'd like to put it to good use.

I do appreciate the fact that I won't understand what some things mean, but, hey, I've got to learn some time.
However, I have taken two graduate level law classes alreadyand work very closely with both in-house and outside counsel, including drafting documents and reviewing regulations, so I already know some stuff.

Besides, I don't only want the notes to start early (I doubt I'll get that much reading done over the next few months), but also as extra material / backup for when classes start in earnest

Anyway, no harm in asking...

Don't wear a suit. Dress how you are comfortable.

Also, many of the people in my section who busted their asses did way worse than expected and many of the people who didn't do shit pulled the As. I'm not trying to say that hard work doesn't pay off, but don't think that being the gunneriest gunner is going to get you As.
