1/20/17 Rejected by Suffolk- I guess that means I might have to move out of state if I want to go to law school!

1/20/17 Decision made at Nova. Admitted through the AAMPLE program!

1/26/17 Decision made at Cooley. Still waiting on what they decided, but it was a quickly decided though. LOL.

1/26/17 Admitted to Barry! Woohoo. If all other schools in MA and FL reject me, I'm totally going to Barry. Still waiting on package with any financial info (Crossing fingers I get some aid)

2/7/17- Upset! I emailed Barry to find out about my acceptance letter in the mail and they actually said that there was an error with their scanners and system and that I was actually wait-listed and not accepted. Not happy about them not sending an apology or status update on that HUGE mistake on their part. So, not happy with their first impression!!!

2/11/17- Charleston, I got accepted into their summer program, but will not be able to do it since I need an acceptance in order to quit my job and move my life down to another state. Thanks anyway Charleston.

2/21/17- Rejected by FIU, my own alma mater! I guess the LSAT scores really count for more than they claim. I have 4 schools left now so if I don't get into any of them then I might take the LSAT again with a LIVE course and apply for next year!

Did you hear back from St.Thomas, i am curious to know because it looks like we have around the same GPA/LSAT with graduate work and I applied there as well, thanks!

Sorry to hear that Ella. Hoping another one of your choices accepts you. Texas Southern accepted another person with similar stats if you wanted to make the move down there.

Thanks Matt! They really need to fix those issues. I might have to wait until next year if the other schools that I want don't work out too. I haven't taken the LSAT with a live course and that might be something that would probably help me more then self-study. I'll wait to hear from the other schools and once all have responded I'll decide my next step. I don't really want to Cooley, even though it was my safe school.. Ugh.

That's the second time I heard of a school messing up like that. I think you'll get in somewhere. Keep positive! Have you looked at Thomas Jefferson in San Diego? great city.

@EllaWoodsGuatemala How'd you hear about your decision at FIU? My status just changed to Decision Rendered, Letter Mailed. I was wondering if they mail both acceptances/rejections.
