6/17 Received the letter from Pepperdine, and.......waitlisted. At least I have heard back from all schools at this point!

July/August: Picked Santa Clara. Got off waitlist at American. Picked American. Got really busy and stopped updating my status on this site!

8/15 Final update: After a roller-coaster admissions process, I ended up at UC Hastings, my first choice! This has made me believe that your dream school and #1 choice can actually happen. When I applied, I thought there was no way I could get in, but I was told to apply to a "reach" school anyways, so I did. I couldn't be happier with the result.

Best of luck to those going through this process! Keep believing, miracles can happen! :)

I think Miami and Pepperdine are the best schools on this list. Congrats on getting into one of them right away!

Which school do you think you're gonna go to?

I'm deciding between Santa Clara and McGeorge at the moment. I know I will be happy at either school, but I just need to make up my mind! I also want to follow up with some of the schools where I am waitlisted in order to give myself as many options as possible. I most likely will stay in California, as this is where I want to practice in the future. I'll update this once I have made more decisions :)

This response is a little late, but I ended up withdrawing from American right after I was admitted to Hastings (2 weeks ago). Hope that opened up a spot for somebody!
