Coastal Law Admissions Spotlight: Younes Lari

My name is Younes Lari. I am an attorney and an admissions counselor at Florida Coastal School of Law. I am the oldest of four with two brothers and one sister. We all grew up in an exceptionally loving family. My parents have now been married for over 35 years and have always been a model of compassion, care, and love to me and my siblings. Although life circumstances have put some geographical distance between us all, I have always been very close to them and they continue to play a significant role in my life.

I have numerous hobbies and interests – a true jack of many trades and master of none. I am an avid tennis and soccer fan. I grew up playing both sports on a regular basis but at some point, in my early teenage years, had to choose which to pursue more seriously and tennis was my pick. I, now, have been playing, teaching, and working around the sport for more than 20 years. At some point, I was a full time tennis-coach and managed a tennis pro-shop in Salt Lake City, Utah. Through sporting competition, perhaps inadvertently, I learned much about mental discipline, perseverance, focus, and performance; qualities that would prove crucial later-on in my academic and professional life. I also remained an enthusiastic soccer fan. I still follow the professional soccer world eagerly and, to this day, I cannot think of many other events that could provide a better hour and a half of entertainment than a high-level soccer match.

I did not acquire an interest in law until my late 20s. Now in hindsight, I am glad that is how it unfolded. Otherwise I might have been too restless and hyper to be able to muster up the focus and concentration that law school demands. Having said that, by the time I arrived at the orientation I was ready and eager to start. As challenging as it proved to be, I look back at my law school career with nothing but fondness. I met professors who would leave a forever lasting ideological and intellectual influence on me, and friends whose friendships dwarf the significance of the degree and the license of which I am all so proud. Law school gave me the gift of prospective, changed my way of thinking, broke me down and built me back up anew.

There are times when the fear of sounding too cliché stops us from stating what might be the most significant. At risk of sounding unoriginal I have to say helping others is a major force and determining factor in my decision of pursuing an education and ultimately a career in law. Due to the difficulties of immigration in the last 12 years I have been the head of my family’s household, my parents do not speak English very well and that puts me in charge of many matters a family of 6 deals with on a day-to-day basis. I say this with great pride – I enjoy the opportunity to help my family, especially when I know they need it the most. The notion of helping others, particularly the underdog, the outnumbered, and the minority has always been very appealing to me and doing just that as a profession is truly a dream of mine. Coastal Law helped that dream come true.

Starting my second year at Coastal Law I began working in the school’s IT department as a student worker. I already had a great experience as a student in Coastal Law, yet upon starting to work I was immediately impressed by the working culture around the place. Everyone was helpful, supportive, and friendly. On my last day as a student worker I was surprised with a gift basket and bundle of well wishes, so a few months later, after passing the bar exam, when I learned that Coastal Law wa hiring for the position of an admissions counselor, I was excited to throw my hat in the ring.

As an admissions counselor, I help the next generation of attorneys navigate their way through the application, but more significantly, the decision-making process. I get to meet and talk to the bright minds of the future and share with them my experience and learn from them in return. I do not take that opportunity lightly. At the admissions office we are a very close-knit and energetic team. I would not be exaggerating when I say that every day I look forward to going to work to see my co-workers, who quickly became my friends, and work alongside them.

Coastal Law Admissions Spotlight: Iana Benjamin

You could fit Tobago, the island I grew up on, into Florida twice while leaving room for a few supermarket chains, McDonald’s franchises and shopping centers. As one raised a part of such a small community, geographic limitations often have overreaching influences on psychological aspirations. Consider my parents, Exhibit A: they were mortified when I decided to attend college in New York. The distance scared them. My parents, like many bound by the horizons of the lands that contain them, are crippled by fear of the unknown. I, on the other hand, maintain that life is bigger than the ebb of one’s home shores and intend to capitalize on all opportunities that avail themselves.

My courageousness and idealism hit an iron slab once I arrived in New York. It was surreal that after trying to adjust to life in New York terrorists hijacked planes and collided them into two of the state’s most monumental buildings exacerbating nationwide fear. Adjusting to New York in the aftermath of September 11th was terrible. The everyday trials of navigating mass transit amidst influxes of delays and reroutes, while simultaneously trying not to get lost and make it to school on time were physically taxing. Moreover, the pervasive atmosphere of fear that accompanied the weeks immediately after was emotionally draining. I persevered, I was strong willed and determined and nothing or no one would break me. I dedicated myself diligently to my studies ensuring I was consistently an honor roll student and graduated Magna Cum Laude. I enjoyed student life by being active and involved. I joined the debate team and we traveled to Puerto Rico for an intercollegiate competition – I won the best individual debate award. I also got involved in the school newspaper, ADAFI, and was elected Associate Editor. During my one-year tenure, my team spearheaded several charitable events including Thanksgiving and Christmas Food Drives as well as substantial policy changes.

That’s background: now let’s get to why I wanted to become a lawyer. I will be candid in conceding my initial motives for applying to law school. I was selfish, supercilious and greedy. I wanted to be another rags to riches epic, and to prove to all who doubted me that I was unstoppable. I was driven to make my parents proud and became a product of the doctor/lawyer career trajectory syndrome. I was adamant that intellectual aptitude had to be measured by success in either of these fields. Since the sight of blood and any science exam made me queasy, I opted for the latter. This gave rise to another quandary; what practice area would I pursue? Criminal? No, I wanted to have a family some day, too many complications with convicts in the picture. Civil Rights? Absolutely not, regarding this I was adamant. I refused to allow my appearance to define my career path. Yes, I am a black woman, but was it my cross to bear the injustices and struggles of the entire black community? Business Law seemed a viable option, good money involved, and a Bachelor’s degree in Corporate Psychology couldn’t hurt. There was my solution, a glamorous career in business law proving my intellectual worth, and startling my critics.

Upon introspection, I discovered I really did want to go to law school but for the wrong reasons. I was raised in a religious family and I was always able to rely heavily on my spiritual compass, particularly when making big decisions. It was not my intent to appear as yet another carbon copy applicant who finds enlightenment at the brink of the application deadline and is convinced of God’s purpose for him/her to change the world. It was once my motto that selfishness is the practical man’s roadmap to success; and that is the shameful truth. However, success often blinds us as to the source of our gifts. My talents and abilities are not by chance, they are God given, and “to he who has been blessed with much, much is expected.” Amidst my preparation for the LSAT the first time, I got word that Tobago had been hit by hurricane Ivan. Frantically, I tried calling home, without success, to ensure that my family and friends were not harmed. At that moment not the LSAT, not law school, not money, absolutely nothing else mattered to me. Relief came a day later when my mother called to assure me of everyone’s safety. Shortly after the neighboring islands of Grenada and Haiti were mercilessly hit by Ivan, hundreds lost lives and homes. I, however, was secure in the knowledge that all was well with my loved ones. I felt ashamed, disconcerted and disdainful of the person I had become. Inspired to improve, I found new direction for my life. Through compassion and generosity, I decided to use my God given talents to help the less fortunate.

The legacy and legal prowess of Thurgood Marshall is to me the axiom to which I hope to someday measure up. His strategic brilliance and unyielding fervor in fighting for the rights of the poor and the oppressed has set ground breaking legal precedent. Marshall didn’t fight cases for love of stature or money, he fought for the love of equality and justice for those least afforded it. A man who had strong convictions in God, his success was guaranteed because of the righteousness of his cause. Fifty years from now when I reflect on my life and accomplishments, I hope the same will apply to me. I hope that through courage and initiative I was able to challenge and change the status quo for the betterment of those in need. That’s why I decided to go to law school, and I wanted more than anything else to spend those critical years of molding at an institution such as Florida Coastal School of Law.

Granted, Florida Coastal School of Law’s reputation for scholastic excellence preceded it, but more important to me is studying in an environment with other students of substance, purpose and direction. I believe that is what the Coastal Law experience afforded me. The school’s commitment to empowering its students with the tools needed to be excellent lawyers was quite appealing.  Florida Coastal School of Law delivered, I enjoyed every bit of my three years in law school.  Law school was rewarding and I am thrilled I earned my law degree from a welcoming institution like Florida Coastal School Law.

Fun Things to Do in Jacksonville While Attending Coastal Law

Florida Coastal School of Law is ideally located in Jacksonville, Florida on the Northeast coast.  With federal and state court houses located right downtown, and more than 80 local companies with national or divisional headquarters in Northeast Florida, Jacksonville offers law students an ideal setting for pursuing a law degree.

Debbie Duncan, Admissions Processor at Florida Coastal School of Law, shares her tips for things to do in Jacksonville while attending law school.  Debbie has been a resident of Jacksonville for the past 34 years. Her family has experienced many of the activities for hobbies, interests, and entertainment that Jacksonville provides.

Below are some of Debbie’s favorite things to do in Jacksonville.

Sports:

We are season ticket holders with the JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS and enjoy tailgating with friends and family before each home game.  The Jaguars play at EverBank Field, which is now home to the world’s largest scoreboard!

We love to golf and enjoy going to THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP every year.  Throughout the years I have met many famous golfers such as Lee Trevino, Fuzzy Zoellor, Jack Nicklaus, and Payne Stewart who shared a bag of Skittles with my daughter.  The Players Championship is played at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

NASCAR is another favorite.  The DAYTONA INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY is only an hour away from Jacksonville.  We attend the Daytona 500 and Coke Zero 400 every year.

Outdoor Recreational Activities:

Jacksonville has the largest urban park system in the nation.  My child played many sports so we spent a lot of time at many of these parks. On weekends we loved to spend time at the beach. We particularly liked the beaches in Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and Fernandina. Jacksonville beach is pet friendly! Many residents take their pets to the beach for an early or evening run. The beach is Jacksonville is also great for adventure. Many students pick up surfing lessons or have beach sporting events at the beach.

Dining and Social Life:

Living in Jacksonville as long as we have, we know a lot of people and have a lot of social engagements. We attend fundraisers and different events at venues such as Epping Forest Country Club. Jacksonville offers a wide range of dining options. My favorite cuisine is Japanese but I sometimes like to step it up a notch at Ruth’s Chris.

Also, many of the student organizations on campus host social events at various restaurants around town including Black Sheep in Riverside and Painting with a Twist, to just name a few. Two of the favorites among the students for Mexican cuisine are Taco Lu and La Napolera. Both restaurants have great prices and delicious authentic Mexican dishes.

Although there are many things to do in Jacksonville, the city is within driving distance to Orlando, Miami, and Atlanta. Jacksonville is great place for students to live, work, and play while taking a break from classes and studying!

Non-Traditional Law Students: Law School is for Every Age

A long time ago in a land far, far away, the typical law school student came straight from undergraduate school.  Times have changed and this is no longer the norm.  More and more “older” law students, known as non-traditional law students, are going to law school.  Of Coastal Law’s applicant pool in 2015, 24% were above the age of 30 and 27% of our 2015 matriculates were from ages 30-67! Our diverse community makes for an easy transition to law school, regardless of age.

Non-traditional law students attending law school seems to be a growing trend.  People are leaving undergrad to start their careers and later learn that a law degree will enhance their opportunities in the field they have chosen.  These non-traditional students go back to law school knowing exactly what they want to do once they obtain their law degree.

Additionally, some “seasoned” law students are coming back for a second career.  They were successful professionals that were ready for a change and saw a need for legal education in that new chosen path. They tend to be more focused and know the direction they want to go.

Some were busy raising a family and now their children are out pursuing their dreams. Now it is time for the parent to pursue their long awaited dream of attending law school.

Many law schools, including Coastal Law, encourage students with work experience to apply.   Even though the typical criteria like LSAT and GPA are important, work and life experience are also very valuable.   Some are already coming from fields in the justice system, such as police officers, Parole officers, paralegals, and many others.  They can bring that knowledge to the classroom not only to help themselves but their fellow classmates.   To help accommodate the busy schedules of our non-traditional law students who may already have a career or family responsibilities, Coastal Law does offer part-time day and evening classes.

According to ACElsat.com there are several reasons why non-traditional law students may opt for a delayed start to law school, as well as several benefits:

  • They have had a chance to explore other fields and have a better idea of what they want to do.
  • They often begin law school in order to do what they love; not because they think they’ll make a lot of money.
  • They have reasonable expectations of the career and its requirements.
  • They have contacts outside of school, which allows them to find job placements quickly.
  • They may have more stable personal lives, which allows them more time to study.

So if you are a “seasoned” student and considering going to law school and have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our Admissions office.  We have a very diverse student body of all ages and ethnicity’.  We encourage anyone desiring to pursue their dream of law school to make it a reality with Coastal Law!

Preparing Your Law School Personal Statement

The law school personal statement is your chance to shine. Many aspiring law students call the Admissions office to ask different questions about their personal statement. Common questions about the personal statement includes:

“How long should my personal statement be?”

“What should I write about in my personal statement?”

“What weight does my personal statement have?”

“Where do I even begin?”

The great thing about your personal statement is that it is the one part of your law school application that you have complete control over. In having this control, you should make your personal statement positive. The goal is to show us your strengths, show us your accomplishments, and finally show us who you are. You want your audience (the law school admissions committee) to act on your behalf once they have completed reading your statement.

There are many different structures of a personal statement and you need to choose the format that best captures you. Some examples include: a personal narrative or story, an explanation of chronological growth, or a presentation of a problem and how you solved it.

When thinking about your structure there are some things that you should NOT do. Some examples are: focusing on your weaknesses, using clichés or slang, discussing controversial issues, and providing us with a review of your academic history that is evident from your transcript. If you have any weaknesses that you would like to make us aware of you should write a separate statement as an addendum to your application. As stated above you want your personal statement to remain positive and show us who you are.

To help you prepare your personal statement, here are some top mistakes that the admissions committee finds in personal statements.

  • Spelling and grammatical errors
  • Sending a personal statement for School B, meant for school A
  • Focusing on your weaknesses instead of your strengths
  • Summarizing your resume
  • Not letting your personality come through
  • Not using quotation marks when using a quote and not citing sources

If you have any questions regarding your personal statement please do not hesitate to reach out to the Admissions Office at Coastal Law. You can always call us at 1-800-769-2125 or email us at admissions@fcsl.edu. We would be happy to provide some guidance.

Factors Considered When Accepting Law Students

 

Admissions committees review thousands of applications per year. The admissions committee at Florida Coastal School of Law reviews all the applications it receives holistically to ensure that the students selected can successfully undertake a rigorous program in the study of law and contribute positively to the profession and society.

Admissions decisions include attention to factors that enhance the educational experience of the entire student body. While LSAT scores, GPA, and the undergraduate institution attended are significant factors in the admission process, these are not the only factors taken into account. Admissions committees also look at the applicant’s personal statement, difficulty of the undergraduate course work, LSAT writing sample, letters of recommendation, work experience (resumé), maturity, community and campus involvement, advanced degrees, leadership, diversity, and background.

Factors Considered When Accepting Law Students:

LSAT Scores: Admissions committees rely on LSAT scores to evaluate applicants’ logical reasoning, analytical, and reading skills, all of which are essential for success in law school. If a candidate takes the LSAT multiple times, most admissions committees will use the highest score, however, they will also be able to review the other scores to see if the LSAT score(s) has increased or decreased.

GPA: Undergraduate performance generally is an important indicator of how a student is likely to perform in law school. Admissions committees consider performance trends in the undergraduate grade-point average. If a candidate wishes to comment on irregular grade trends, they should do so in an addendum.

Course Selection: Candidates who take high level courses in undergrad often are evaluated in a more favorable light than candidates who choose to take lower level/less difficult courses. Because law school is a rigorous academic program, applicants that have done well in a challenging program are considered favorably.

Letters of Recommendation: The most effective letters of recommendation are those from professors and work supervisors who know the candidate well enough to write about the candidate’s work ethic and potential to succeed in law school. Most admissions committees do not look favorably on recommendations written by family members or friends.

Resume: Law schools want diverse and interesting classes. Diversity in thought, backgrounds and experiences. The law school resume can show the candidate’s leadership skills, entrepreneurship, drive, and many other unique qualities make them a good fit for a particular school.

Personal Statement: The personal statement is an opportunity for the reviewer to “meet” the candidate. Most admissions committees are looking for attention to detail, proofreading and grammar skills, and the candidate’s ability to communicate why they want to go to law school and that law school in particular. Admissions committees want to understand how the candidate will use their law degree to accomplish their professional goals.

Financing Your Legal Education

Law school is a huge, but sound investment into your future.  Experience shows that Coastal Law students have a stellar return on their educational investment. On average, our graduates earn $750,000 more in their lifetime than if they hadn’t received their law degree from Coastal Law. Nonetheless, determining how to finance your legal education can be a strain mentally, emotionally, and financially.

When considering how to finance your legal education, here a few tips to keep in mind that can help ease the strain as you begin your legal education. Planning in advance is always your best plan to ensure you are prepared and can focus on your first year of law school without the stress of finances.

 

  1. Scholarships for Law Students
  • Most law schools offer merit based scholarships. Make sure your undergraduate GPA and LSAT score are as high as possible to maximize your award.
  • Ask if the law school offers additional scholarships. You may have to apply or be recommended for additional awards.
  • Coastal Law offers a full range of scholarships for its students.  We offer scholarships for First Responders, Diversity Champions, and more. See a list of the scholarships Coastal Law offers here.

 

  1. Student Loans
  • Apply for Federal Aid to receive student loans with the lowest interest rates.
  • Start with submitting your FAFSA. This will qualify you for $20,500 per year.
  • For additional student loans, apply for Grad Plus. This credit-based loan will help cover the rest of tuition as well as living expenses.

 

  1. Jobs
  • If you currently have a job and want to keep working, consider attending school part-time.
  • As a full-time student it is recommended that you work less than 20 hours per week. Even a few hours of work help bring in a little extra money.
  • Look into on-campus jobs, work-study, or paid internships. These types of positions could help you gain legal experience while easing the financial burden.

 

  1. Budget
  • Creating a budget ensures that you don’t spend money you don’t have and helps you prepare for future expenses.
  • Compare your needs versus wants. Remember to live like a student now so you can live like an attorney later.
  • Borrow smart. Don’t take our more loans than you need.
