Sent: Date I submitted the application on LSAC
Received: Date school requested package from LSAC
Complete: Date school told me I had a complete file
Decision: Date of Letter
Scholarship = amount over 3 years
12/17 I'm going to law school! Email from WashU. Funny thing about the acceptance: I received an email 40 minutes before the acceptance talking about the admitted students weekend and chat. Includes $200 stipend.
01/03 Finally starting to go complete at a few other schools. 3 left!
01/04 In at W&L via email! Mention of stipend (amount TBD)
01/10 In at Emory via phone call! Woken up from a nap to a nice surprise
1/11 In at BC via mail at the permanent address
1/11 Decision at GULC. I don't feel good about this, considering all decisions in 2008 (so far) have been WLs or Rejections.
1/11 I haven't been this obsessive all cycle. I've overturned every stone available to me to find some evidence either way about what to expect from Georgetown. The best I have is that the last decision on LSN was 4 days ago, so maybe they're making different *kinds* of decisions now. Maybe???
1/11 Just checked the mail (late). Complete at BU! This is significant only because I am officially complete everywhere! YAY! Post-marked on the 9th, so I'm putting that as my complete date.
1/16 WL at Georgetown. Expected.
1/22 Went to decision yesterday (somehow didn't notice yesterday) at Vanderbilt. I feel nauseous.
1/24 25k/year at WashU!
1/24 In at Vanderbilt!!! Priority Flat Rate box. I am SO excited.
1/30 20k/year at W&L!
2/04 Waitlisted at UCLA and GW today, both dated 1/31. UCLA was expected...GW not so much. Very confused about it. It would have taken a full ride, or close, to get me there I think...so I shouldn't be too distraught over it. But I am. Argh.
2/07 In at Texas!!!!! (by phone call) Oh how I would love to go back to Texas. This is good. This is very good.
2/08 Dinged at Penn by snail mail. Expected. On the bright side, got my UT acceptance package! Letter dated 2/05. Also got my scholarship letter from WashU. They double packed it, so I had two scholarship letters and two reply-letters in one envelope. Do you think that means it's 150k instead 75k?
2/14 In at Cornell via email!! How exciting!
2/29 Scholarship from Vanderbilt! It's interesting...10k/year scholarship + 5k/year need-based scholarship. Put it down as 15k/year since both are called scholarships.
2/29 I was predicting that I would be waitlisted at Mich on 3/1. However, it doesn't seem that's happening with all the waitlists that went out today. I am taking this as a positive, insofar that it says that I wasn't put in the first WL batch. There are only a handful of people who are still pending (that I can trust to update LSN asap) and complete near or before me. Hmm..
3/16 Dear Michigan,
Where are you? I'm confused. The second wave of WL went out on 3/14 and I've still not gone to decision. I'm one of very few to still be pending from pre-February completion. Please let me know soon.
3/17 UT money!
3/18 In at BU via phone call!
3/24 Waitlisted at USC. Letter to permanent address.
3/24 20k/year at BC! The "Law Scholarship" was first presented to me in their financial aid award.
3/27 35k at Cornell over 3 years. Unfortunately pretty underwhelmed.
3/28 12:03 am. Just went to decision at UVA via status checker. I think it'll be a waitlist, but who knows? I'm just glad to finally have a decision coming.
4/01 Withdrawn from WashU. Not by telling them, of course, but by missing the first deposit.
4/03 Waitlisted at UVA, duh. Post-marked 4/01. Not April Fools, unfortunately.
4/03 Just waiting on numero uno. I have no reasons to hide anything now, as I already told Michigan they were my number one in a recent LOCI to Dean Zearfoss. I am also finished leveraging scholarships. As of right now, it will be Vanderbilt in the fall. I think the only schools that I would consider instead are UVA and Michigan, and since I am not holding my breath with UVA's general wait list...
4/07 Sent my deposit to Vanderbilt!
4/09 Withdrew from Emory. I missed the deadlines on WashU and W&L, so I also have the W there too. Further, I didn't bother submitting the affirmation to USC about the WL, so I am considering that a W as well. As for the others, I am going to just let the deposit deadlines happen. No school has bothered to remind me (besides Emory), so I don't see a pressing need. I might change my mind later when I don't have work to do.
4/12 Took the little A down from Vandy.
4/15 The little A is back. Pocket withdrawal at Cornell, BU, BC, and Texas.
5/24 WL, Rejection letter from GW. I'm entertained and wouldn't have considered them anyhow.
7/6 Released from GULC's waitlist by snail mail. Wouldn't have gone anyhow, but it still stinks. Only UCLA and UVA WLs are pending. UVA would make me think long and hard, but I wouldn't go to UCLA.
