ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

SENT = Date I applied via LSAC
RECEIVED = Date report was requested from LSAC
COMPLETE = This is the date of my LSAC report being posted, in the absence of a school notification, or the date that I have received an e-mail from the school indicating that my file is complete.

5/3/08 - Nice. I get a rejection letter from IU-B after withdrawing in writing 5 weeks ago...

3/27/08 - I guess it's decision time. I withdrew from MSU and sent in my deposit to OSU. It feels really weird (but good!) knowing that I have made a final decision...

3/26/08 - Waiting for IU-Bloomington has kind of gotten on my nerves. I applied the first day applications were accepted. If they don't want me, they should just say so. So, I have sent a withdrawal via e-mail.

3/25/08 - Well, MSU really wants me! On top of the scholarship, I now have a free laptop! Too bad I already bought mine!

3/18/08 - E-mail notification from Moritz that I got a $9,500 leadership scholarship, renewable yearly with a 2.5 GPA. I'm not sure about the details, or if I have any merit scholarships or aid on the way, either. It's still good news!

3/17/08 - I withdrew from U of Arizona via snail mail. I was really disappointed they didn't have stipends to come visit, it would have been neat to see the school.

2/5/08 - Re-withdrew from Regent via snail mail. I hope they get it. There was no automatic scholarship information, so it's not even worth it if I have to apply for scholarships!

-The same day of my 2nd withdrawal, I receive an email informing me that I received a $24,000 scholarship, renewable yearly if I maintain a 3.0 GPA.

2/2/08 - Oddly enough, I received an e-mail from Regent University notifying me of my acceptance, even though I have snail-mailed them a withdrawal a couple of weeks back...

1/23/08 - Withdrew for Indiana University-Indianapolis via e-mail.

1/22/08 - Received a nice rejection letter from ND via snail mail. I really, really, really, really wanted to go to ND, so it's kind of good. I know that I couldn't have afforded the huge debt load without a scholarship!! (That's "glass is half full" me!)

-Received MSU acceptance and scholarship information via snail mail. It would be really sweet to see them rise from Tier 3 to Tier 2 this year!! MSU is now my fallback school, now. The scholarship is for 100% of the tuition, renewable with a 3.00 GPA. (I calculated the scholarship by multiplying $1,031 by 88, the maximum credits of the scholarship.)

1/12/08 - Mailed Moritz Scholarship and Specialty Awards applications to OSU.

1/10/08 - Turned in FAFSA.

1/9/08 - Withdrew from Regent (via snail mail).

1/6/08 - Withdrew from Chicago-Kent via e-mail (as preferred per the website).

12/20/07 - Snail mail from Chicago-Kent with scholarship information. I received the full tuition for the first year ($33,570), and it is renewable for $20,000 for my second and third years conditional on my GPA being 3.250.

12/18/07 - Accepted via snail mail at U of Arizona. The Dean's Scholarship is for $15,000 the first year, and $13,000 the 2nd and 3rd years (if in good standing).

12/17/07 - Accepted via e-mail at Chicago-Kent. It said a letter is on the way.

11/08/07 - Got a call from OSU Moritz Law. Within a day or two, got a letter in the mail telling me I've been accepted. Woohoo! I hope I get some scholarship money!

10/26/07 - Acceptance letter from IU-I, and the scholarship is renewable for all 3 years (if 3.4 GPA).

10/22/07 - E-mail from Chicago-Kent that I am complete. I may be notified within 2 weeks, or maybe two to three months. LOL Quite a range.

10/12/07 - E-mail from Notre Dame announcing that they received my application and will have a decision in about eight weeks.

10/09/07 - Phone call from Indiana-Indianapolis that I've been accepted. Not my first choice, but I'm going to law school next fall! :D

10/09/07 - E-mail notifying me that I'm complete at University of Arizona!

9/27/07 - Got a really lengthy e-mail from OSU Moritz Law thanking me for applying. They will not be requesting reports until October 15, and will not begin reviewing them until mid-December.

9/19/07 - Got my check back from Indiana Bloomington!

9/11/07 - The weirdest thing happened. I got an invitation to apply and fee waiver from Indiana Bloomington in the mail yesterday... But I already applied. Today I got an email saying that they received my application and check and will be mailing it back to me! That's helpful!

9/1/07 - I just sent in my first 3 applications! Ah, it feels good!

7/31/07 - Finally! My killer LOR from the Honors Director and a professor I worked closely with throughout my entire college career.

5/16/07 - Transcript processed by LSAC.

5/1/07 - Got my Clergy/Spiritual Adviser LOR form for Regent filled out. (Hoping I don't need it!)

2/22/07 - A killer LOR from a political science professor who informed me that I was one of around 5 students to ever get an A+ in one of his courses in 20 years!

11/29/06 - A decent LOR from the guy I did research with at the National Center for State Courts.

11/13/06 - A decent LOR from an employer who commented on my organizational/analytical skills.

10/20/2006 - Got my LSAT score today. My goal was a 161, and I got a 162. I was quite pleased! That makes me a touch competitive for my reach of Notre Dame. We'll see...

10/13/2006 - LS Forum in Chicago. 2 schools gave me fee waivers... All you have to do is ask, it can't hurt. That'll save me a little bit of dough. :)

Thanks for the good luck wishes. I am from N. Indiana and have been living in Indy for several years. I am settled here and I love the city. Because I plan on practicing here, it just makes sense to stay. Plus, due to my financial situation, I am not really in a place to relocate. It is a great city, though!

Have you heard anything from Michigan State? They told me it only takes a couple of weeks once you go complete, and I see you went complete in Sept.

Gotcha, I love dealing with the admin offices... MSU said they forgot to mail me their postcard. Good luck with Northwestern; I grew up across street from their main campus, that would be a great deal.

good to see somebody else interested in Ohio State. I visited a couple weeks back, I really really like it. Life for law students in Columbus sounds awesome.

Sorry to hear about ND, man. Seems like you're alright with it though, and you're doing just fine with your other acceptances! Big congrats on MSU, that's a really nice scholarship. Fingers crossed, here's hoping you get the Moritz scholarship, that seems like it'll make it an easy decision for you :)

Hmm, as far as I know I didn't apply; this process is crazy. Watch your e-mail though because I've heard of a couple others receiving scholarship offers that way too. Good luck!

- lionheart
  • Congratulations!
  • Friday, April 04 2008 at 04:46 PM

...on OSU again, and some nice scholarship money. I think you made the right decision. You said residency is easy to establish in OH, right? That makes it even better. I just made my decision today. It really is tough to finally buckle down and pick one, but I'm pretty happy with Michigan. Thanks for keeping me updated. Good luck with everything, and enjoy Columbus!
