Loyola - New Orleans (c/o 2018 Applicants) 2014-2015 Cycle

Postby Gr82bme23 » Wed Jan 21, 2015 12:01 am

I submitted my application on January 15 for Evening Division. Status Checker says "Application in Review".

Non-Traditional 33yo, LSAT 148, GPA 3.52. Anyone been accepted with similar LSAT and GPA?

You can also post your questions here. Would like to get a thread started to pass the time waiting on a decision :D

Retake. No school is worth attending with a 148, don't throw away that semi decent gpa

Well.. :shock: ...148 is my retake. It's the best I've got. Been in the legal field for 12 years as a Paralegal (last 4 working as a Law Clerk for a Judge). I'm trying to take the next step. I have only applied to Loyola NOLA. Hoping similar stats have gotten their acceptance letters already.

Where are you from? Do you have any ties to NOLA? I applied last cycle with a 153 and 3.7 got almost 40k a year from them. I would say with your numbers your have a shot, but would definitely advise against attending. Put in the work for the LSAT it's worth hundreds of thousands $$.

Live in Picayune, Mississippi which is about 45 min from the campus. Completely invested in the area. Lots of community service and already have a career that I do not want to give up. That's why I'm applying part-time evenings. I am seriously in love with New Orleans and the Uptown area where the campus is located. I know its not everyone's first choice but I have always wanted to go there.

You have less than 50% chance of finding a job in any legal capacity. With your numbers I don't think you'll be getting any $$, that's why I said retake and don't go. Most wouldn't suggest the school even for free.

A friendly reminder for bigfish about this forum...

This forum is called "Law School Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists". It is clearly for people who wish to discuss acceptances, denials, and waitlists. If you're sharing news or looking for news on an acceptance, denial, or waitlist, then this forum is for you.

If you've already been accepted and shared the details of that, and want to discuss or weigh your options, you should try to have those discussions in the "Choosing a Law School" forum or threads dedicated to already-admitted students. You will probably get much better responses there.

Normal discussion between applicants is fine, but this forum is NOT the place for non-applicants to argue or debate which law schools are worth attending and under what circumstances. The threads here typically involve people who have already decided to apply and are seeking or sharing news on the state of their applications. You and them and everyone else are all free to discuss whether or not attending is a good idea in the appropriate forum, not here.

Starting or perpetuating arguments here about whether a school is worth attending may be deemed trolling

I know a couple of people who have gotten in Loyola with those stats (right at +/- 1).

Yes, admitted with a decent scholarship. They do take a little longer to review.

That's great! Congrats! Do you mind me asking your stats? Are you URM? I wrote a LGBT Diversity Statement so that has me a little nervous too. I think that I saw your username on Law School Numbers and that you have been accepted several places.

Sure, 148/3.22. Not URM but am an older student and did have a strong personal statement. I think that helped all around. I am aware I could have done better on a retake but I really didn't have the time and I was accepted into several schools that have the programs I am looking for.

Congrats! Glad to hear it! Did you join their Facebook page for admitted students? Full time or part? Civil or common law?

Accepted earlier this cycle with 84k over 3 years. Definitely waiting for a bit to see what other offers roll in.
