I'm non-trad. I've been working for 20yrs, currently as a legal secy.
I changed my mind & applied FT to Pace and Rutgers. I really would prefer to go during the day so i thought i'd give it a shot.
let the waiting begin!!!!
12/3 - Had an interview @ Pace. I think i did ok, but i was nervous! don't know why i was nervous, my interviewer was extremely nice, i just get nervous on interviews. i should here back from Pace in mid-Jan, early Feb.
12/4 - was getting a lil' ansy about being complete @ the schools i applied to in early Oct. called Touro and was told that i'm complete. applications sent for rev until Jan. called Stetson & was told the same. i'm glad i called!
12/7 - I got an acceptance e-mail from Rutgers-Newark yesterday!!! :) i'm soooooo excited & pleasantly suprised! i couldn't stop smiling, even in my sleep...i should be receiving a package from Rutgers in the mail shortly.
12/10 - called SUNY-Buffalo to check on the status of my app & was told that i've been complete since 11/29.
12/12 - called CUNY to check & i'm complete. i didn't realize that CUNY does not send notification.
12/14 - hmmm, i noticed that people who scored in the 160's are getting their acceptances now from Pace. meanwhile, i was told that decisions would start going out in Jan....i guess those of us who scored under 160 will hatve to continue to wait until next year.
12/18 - accepted to Touro by mail yesterday! it was a large brown envelope, very thin. nice surprise! especially since Touro's one of the schools that told me they didn't start reviewing until Jan also. maybe schools just say that so people won't call throughout the month of December. 2 down...7 to go!
1/17 - anyone else feel like screaming??!! on the one hand, i'm glad that i haven't heard anything in awhile b/c that means no rejections, on the other hand, i REALLY want to hear from somebody!!!
1/19 - Yes!! I'm in @ Pace! Happy, happy, joy, joy! I recd a large white envelope that included a folder w/an acceptance ltr.
1/23 - Guess what I found in my mailbox last night...that's right!!! A large white envelope from Stetson w/an acceptance letter to the part-time program. This is great! Hopefully, i'll be able to visit the school next month.
1/27 - This has been a really good weekend. On Fri night, an acceptance letter from Florida Coastal was in the mail and on Sat an acceptance package from SUNY-Buffalo! Now i was pretty sure i would get in to Florida Coastal since they kept sending e-mails practically saying i was in, if i applied, but the acceptance from SUNY was a total surprise! I'm definitely driving up next month to visit the school, which means i'm not sure if i'll make it to Florida.
2/14 - Happy V-day everyone!!! I sent my letters out today withdrawing from Touro and Florida Coastal so maybe someone else who's waiting will get in. Good Luck!
2/25 - I visited UB and loved it! Great school w/good people. I'll probably w/d from more schools this week. Still nothing from Cuny, SJU and Hofstra. We'll see what happens.
2/26 - I'm withdrawing from Pace and Stetson today. I decided that although i really like Pace, it's just too expensive for me. As far as Stetson goes, it was nice to have that choice to possibly move to and practice in Florida but it's not something i can do at this time. I know there are people waiting to hear from both schools. I hope this helps!! :)
2/28 - I was already leaning heavily towards UB when I recd a call from the Vice Dean of Admissions who told me i was selected for the fellowship!!! YIPEE!! I am so surprsed and sooo grateful. I am excited about being a UB law student and i'm really looking forward starting in the Fall. I know that UB is the right choice for me.
I am going to w/d from the schools where my apps are still pending.
GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!!
3/3 - Recd a small, stuffed white envelope w/an acceptance letter inside from Hofstra, but I already mailed out a letter requesting that my app be w/d. Guess they didn't get it yet.
