I've considered waiting another year, re-taking the LSAT and trying to get into some other schools that I am interested in attending. Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated! Also, does anyone have any info (good or bad) about Testmasters prep course? I registered in 2005 for their full-length course and it was canceled the day before it was to begin. I have heard both good and bad.
Scholarship amounts are three year totals.
(04/16/07) Called Syracuse and found out that I am in!!!! This is a big acceptance for me. Barring anything crazy happening - like Alabama, GSU, or Cumberland offering me a spot - I will be heading up North to Syracuse!
(04/13/07) Waitlisted at Cumberland; I will remain on this one for a little while.
(04/11/07) I called and spoke with several admission offices today (Syracuse, Cumberland, and Hofstra) all have confirmed that my application is in review and that I should hear something very shortly.
(04/03/07) Quinnipiac threw me on the waitlist. Don't they know who I think I am?
(04/03/07) Withdrew from Arkansas. I left a message for the assistant director of admission. I let him know that I did not appreciate the tone of the letter I received, after having spoken with Associate Dean, Miller, who was very positive about my chances of getting in. I'm sure he had a laugh at my expense.
(03/30/07) The University of Tennessee said "oh hells no!" Notice arrived at my permanent address, which happens to be different from my present address. This makes me very much more unsure about my reaches.
(03/26/07) Contacted Cumberland ... they still haven't reviewed my file b/c it was Spring Break last week.
(03/26/07) Received an e-mail from Hofstra confirming that my application was complete. I thought that it had been complete!
(03/22/07) Today, I received a letter from Associate Dean, James Miller, from Arkansas Law. The letter seemed to be written in an attempt to get me to withdraw my application. The letter cited that my index was not high enough for them to offer me admission; and that, due to the fact that I was not an Arkansas resident, I would probably not get accepted. It was strange because, if you don' want to offer a candidate admission, why not just deny them? I think that if you are below the index, they want to see how badly you really want to go to Arkansas. They basically gave me one week to return a "different" personal statement and a current resume'. If anyone else has received a letter from Arkansas similar to the one I described, please let me know. Thanks.
(03/22/07) Today I received a phone call from Dean Johnson offering admission and an $18K/ yr. merit scholarship. High-Five.
(03/20/07) I contacted Cumberland today to inquire about the status of my application file; they told me it would be a couple more weeks before I hear anything ... they said that two weeks ago!
(03/20/07) Apparently at some schools if you don't call and make sure that your file is complete, it will just sit there. At one school, my application has been complete for a while; however, when I called and double-checked my status they had no idea whether or not it was complete. Finally they figured out that it was ... now I have to wait four to six MORE weeks for a decision ... not happy.
(3/19/07) Called Florida Coastal and spoke with Admission advisor; accepted with $10,000 per year scholarship.
(3/17/07) Received a letter from Hofstra informing me that there would be a new dean at the LS.
(03/14/07) Received solicitation from Florida Coastal and responded the following day. I spoke with Steve Jones at FCSL and he informed me that I would be accepted with a scholarship without any review. He said that letter should be mailed out by 03/19/07.
