11-18-07: In at W&M by email! (Package) I'm officially going to law school. :-)

11-30-07: Okay, so hearing back from W&M totally spoiled me. Waiting for the other 14 is killing me.

- Later that Day: GULC!!!! (Small Envelope)

12-04-07: Online Status Checker for Michigan says Decision... Eep!

- 5 minutes later: "Virtual VULS" says my Vandy decision was mailed yesterday... DOUBLE eep!

12-05-07: Vandy! (Small Envelope)

12-06-07: Acceptance from MICHIGAN! (Package, dated 12-03) ... also go a Fed-Ex box from Vandy full of stuff.

12-11-07: Notre Dame with a scholarship by email! .... this makes me feel better about the fact that I dont seem to have been considered for Cornell EA.
- Later: WUSTL!

01-23-08: FULL RIDE to Wash-U! Very excited... this will make the visit to St. Louis this weekend much more interesting!

- Also: Defferred by Columbia... the email asks for my fall grades, which brought my overall GPA down (slightly)... this cannot end well. :-

01-24-08: Chicago! (Phone Call @ 12pm | 773 Area Code)

02-05-08: Harvard Deferral (Email)

02-06-08: Waitlisted at Penn (Email)

02-25-08: GW (snail mail) Presidential Merit scholarship offer: 20K/yr plus housing for 1L. Nice.

02-29-08: Vandy (snail mail) scholarship worth 25K/yr... totally thrilled!!!!!

03-02-08: W&L scholarship in email! Snail mail letter to follow.

03-24-08: Duke WL and GW Scholarship increase, both by email.

04-16-08: Final Decision is between WUSTL $$$$ and Vandy $$$!

Good luck with UF. I wouldn't be surprised if you made HYS and missed Ole' Florida.

Good luck
Wednesday, July 18 2007 at 07:23 AM

We have somewhat similiar numbers, then again that URM thing should be a nice boost for you :) Why so many schools below your range? Seriously wondering... Regardless, best of luck!

Wednesday, July 18 2007 at 12:10 PM

Why is retaking not an option?

It's good to see a fellow American Indian applying. What tribe are you from? What schools are you learning towards?

Sunday, July 22 2007 at 07:13 AM

I'm from the Catawba Nation and I'm also part Onieda Indian as well. Great list of schools! Your numbers plus heritage will get you into some great law schools!

wow...
Monday, July 23 2007 at 10:38 AM

That's a mighty big list you've got there.

Your List
Monday, July 23 2007 at 11:33 AM

Hey, I seriously think you should cut down that list. You have strong numbers so I don't think you need so many 'safeties.' Rock your Personal Statement and I think you'll have a ridiculous cycle.

wow!
Monday, July 23 2007 at 07:26 PM

Geez, you are going to get into every one of those schools. Don't apply to UT-Austin so it will be one less person I will have to wait on while on the wait list. :) j/k of course, but very impressive!

99guhan
Great app!
Tuesday, July 24 2007 at 08:53 AM

Hey, best of luck. I'm a URM with similar #s, applying to a couple of the same schools. Lemme know how you do, and much success to you! PS, what tribe is your family from? I'm not Native American, but very connected to the community, I was born on a Navajo Reservation in AZ.

lots of luck
Tuesday, July 24 2007 at 03:13 PM

Hi BoldAsLove Can't wait to see how you're cycle goes, I'm sure it'll just come down to which T14 with which scholarship!

Finally...
Monday, August 06 2007 at 01:07 PM

Good to see you on here :) Good luck with your cycle. They would have to be crazy not to take you in the T14.

Good Luck :)
Saturday, August 25 2007 at 03:56 PM

Although we would like to see Columbia a little higher on your order of preference.

Would you send me your personal statement as an example of what such a successful person would include?

Good luck Ms. Gator Girlie.

Hiya!
Wednesday, November 14 2007 at 09:12 AM

We're LSAT twins but you have a muuuuuch better GPA than I do. It's neat to see where I might have applied if my GPA wasn't so horrible. Best of luck, you will get into a lot of those schools.

CONGRATS
Sunday, November 18 2007 at 06:28 AM

how refreshing
Wednesday, April 16 2008 at 09:17 AM

it's nice to see someone considering factors other than just rank in her decision. congratulations on the scholarships and best of luck wherever you end up!

Saturday, March 07 2009 at 04:47 PM

hey! it took me a while to respond. you're definitely not the first person to note the wide geographic distribution of the schools i've applied to. i kind of wanted to experience something new and was ready for a change, which is also why i didn't bother with applying to UF. we actually had a Stafford class together! i realized that when i saw your email address. hope Vandy law is going well for you!
