Hey 4re, Good luck on your applications. Looks like you are casting a wide net. I am trying to do the same thing. I am sure you are glad to have all of your apps in. Hope you get some acceptances soon.

Good luck man. We have similar numbers and you've got a bunch of good schools in there. For some reason I keep getting stuff from W&L even though I feel way out of their range. I also got the fee waiver so I guess I'll apply, it just seems like its futile? Anyway best of luck in your cycle.

Hi, This site has been incredibly helpful to me as a URM and I definitely want to help others. But right now I'm just trying to avoid flames on my account. After the cycle's been up for a while, I'll change it to help future generations of LSNers. But the site isn't very well moderated and the last thing I need is some of the hatred I've seen on other people's accounts. Thanks for the congrats--right back atcha!

  • Thanks...
  • Monday, December 10 2007 at 05:05 AM

And congrats on American! I love DC and applied there also. Great school. You're on my watch list, so I'll be pulling for both of us with our t25 schools.

Yeah, I thought the letter would be here by now. The status checker said 'letter mailed - 12/07/07"

So sorry about Fordham. Your numbers combined were better than mine. I don't think I'm getting in there. :(. Congrats though on your other acceptances.

Thanks, 4re. Ha..the negativity has def. begun. Thanks for warning me about that. Sorry about Fordham, but g/l with the rest. I'm sure you'll have some great acceptances up there to list alongside American.

Congrats on your acceptances!! BTW you have U of Illinois as decision made, but its still under pending. I assume its an acceptance?

I changed it so that only registered users can post...I didn't even think about doing that in the beginning. Thanks. Did you get into UIUC???? If so, CONGRATS!!! I'm expecting a ding from them...I haven't heard anything back yet. Oh, about me sticking to the T14, haha...I never thought I would get into a T14--let alone two. Hence the reason why I sent out such a broad range of apps. I'll likely be withdrawing places soon.

Hey, we're in the same boat at UIUC now. Went to decision today. I'm worried--it's only been 4 days since it went into review. Do you remember how fast your turn around was?

How did you go about getting a fee waiver from U of IL?

On UIUC. Sucks about no $$ though. Maybe when people start to withdraw they will give you some money. What's your first choice anyway?

  • Monday, January 07 2008 at 09:48 PM

Congrats on Emory! Since we're both in at American with similar numbers, I'm hoping your Emory acceptance bodes well for me. Did you go to "decision" on the status checker? I'm still at complete.

I received an email from them saying that my "file was in line for review." I took it to mean that I was complete there. Did you receive the same one?

  • OMG
  • Wednesday, January 09 2008 at 05:09 PM

I swear you freaked me out for like half a second. I saw the "We fudged our numbers" and I just paused and stared at the 170+/4.0!! Until of course I looked down and saw the rest of what you put, lol. BTW- wuts up with George Mason?!!! hmph!! At least you have other great schools to look forward to :o) And thanks for the support!

On Emory! Just got an acceptance too and it's looking like I might end up there. Also saw that you ride motorcycles which is something I enjoy as well. Good luck with everything.

Your UCLA rejection is making me very sad. It's not looking too good for me then. You have other great choices though. Good luck with your other reaches.

How did you know that?? I'm slightly embarrassed but more curious about how you know that story.....

  • Sunday, February 10 2008 at 04:07 PM

Aww, you are being so secretive. : ( Why? If I get desperate enough, I'll think about letting UCLA know about it. Seriously, I have nothing to lose! Ha.

congrats on all your acceptances, you definitely set yourself up for some great opportunities. quick question: are going directly from undergrad to law school or did u take time off?

- jcervant

  • Tuesday, April 01 2008 at 04:27 PM

I'm not considering them anymore, but I never heard anything either and I'm pretty sure I sent them my FAFSA and everything. Maybe they are just slow with the process? Are they your top choice? If so, I'm hoping they'll come through in a big way for you.

  • UNC
  • Wednesday, April 02 2008 at 08:03 PM

Grats on UNC -- in a very "what have you done for me lately" move, I'm really suddenly starting to consider them (I'm in state if that helps) Congrats on your awesome cycle -- don't let the string of rejections get you down; you're going to law school! By the way, since you asked before, I'm waytofailself on TLS.

- thatwaywardguy
  • After visiting them...not so much
  • Friday, April 11 2008 at 04:56 AM

I'm actually a good deal lower on UNC now than I was when I got accepted. One of the big deals was visiting their campus. Their facilities are dated...and dingy...and the parking situation for the law school is trouble. They're breaking ground on a new law building, but it won't be finished until 2011 at the earliest. There seemed to have been some trouble with funding and hiring a dean, but they seem to have righted the ship on that one. I don't know what effect that will have on the short term...if any. However, that they seemed to have been so disorganized about admissions is troubling to me (ex. they said they'd let everyone know about scholarships by the end of last week). I'm not going to say don't go there; UNC is still a good school and Chapel Hill is still the lovely college town it always is that places very well in state and has some national recognition and a strong alumni network. However, It's just not the school for me (but I learned that back when I took summer courses there and reaffirmed it on my visits.) You have plenty of awesome options, and between UNC and Emory I'm not sure if you can do wrong.
