Completed degree while on Active Duty, applying to start fall 2019.

LSAT studying and actual test were completed while a full-time student and working full-time for active duty.

6-year gap in education (started Aug 2005-2008, gap, resumed July 2016, degree conferred Aug 2018)

GPA and C&F addendums submitted (academic probation & suspension and gap in education record).

NIU: Accepted via email, got packet two weeks later. Scholarship is TOTAL over the 3 years. Got a phone call from admissions department as well from a 2L to discuss any questions-their Admissions Office seems awesome, very forthcoming with information, and the phone call was a nice touch. Withdrawn on 11/19. Scholarship works out to about 50% of total tuition & fees.

Chicago-Kent:App Complete-Final Review 11/6, Admitted via status checker on 11/16. No scholarship info on checker. Unless if I receive scholarship info in the admissions packet, I'm assuming it will be at sticker (I'm 100% GI Bill Eligible and CK is a Yellow Ribbon Program School-so tuition & fees will be covered 100% regardless of scholarship offer). Wrote a Why X, attended 4 webinars, and did their law school experience day. This was my top choice. Got accepted, plan on attending. Submitting my deposit as soon as I get the log-in info. Received acceptance packet via mail on 12/11/2018. No scholarship info, so it looks like it will be at sticker. Based off of their numbers (and the graphs on here), this is not a surprise. However, their YPR program funding means tuition & fees are 100% covered.

DePaul: Did a campus visit & met with admissions. Under Review 11/4. Accepted 11/21. Got an email saying I've been accepted and awarded a Dean's Scholarship for $35k per year with no GPA stips. Declined offer of admission on 11/23. Scholarship is approximately 75% of tuition and fees for 3 years.

John Marshall-Chicago, Loyola-Chicago, and Northwestern applications were withdrawn by 11/26. All were at pending/complete as of 11/26. I'm going to Chicago-Kent!!

Thanks. It was a relief to get an acceptance. I think NIU could be a good fit for me, but it will also depend on what other schools accept me. Part of why I blanketed schools in the city is that I miss living in a big city and living that life style (aka not having to drive to get everywhere).

Congrats on Chicago-Kent. My app is in Final Review as of 11/6. Hopefully I get a decision either before Thanksgiving, or the following week.

I finally got around to sending requests to withdraw my applications or decline offers of admission to the rest of the schools. Once I got the C-K acceptance, I decided since that is my top choice, there is no point in having the rest of the applications out or delaying making a decision on the other two schools that I was accepted to.
