Additional info & updates

11/26/07- Got an email today saying I went complete at Mason, but because of the influx of applications not to expect a decision before January 2008. Kind of disappointed because I expected to hear from them sooner than the other schools because I thought I had a better chance in there. Still hoping for something by the end of the year!

11/27/07- Went complete at Notre Dame. Said to give 8 weeks for a response. Nice to have a time frame for at least two schools!

12/06/07- Accepted at William and Mary with a Graduate Fellowship granting in-state tuition and a stipend! So excited to hear so early, and with such good news!

12/11/07- Accepted at Wake Forest! They say they do scholarship stuff in January. Nice to come in after a hard day of exams! :-) Also just went complete at W&L because they were waiting on my Dean's Certification. What a good day! :-)

12/19/07- Accepted at George Mason by phone! Said a package should be arriving this weekend but I'm out of town.

1/09/08- Accepted at WandL! Finally! :-) Scholarship info mid to later this month. Acceptance came by email in the AM, with word that the Director of Admin had just signed the letter.

1/22/08- Rejected at Notre Dame. Little confused because saw other people got in with my numbers and got money. Do we think distance could have been a factor?

1/22/08- Waitlisted at Vanderbilt. Expected after seeing other people's responses on here but still quite disappointed. Thinking about pulling out for this cycle, working, and trying again in a few years. I want to get into a more "scholarship" oriented school as right now my career aspirations are research and consulting driven. Any thoughts?

1/26/08- Rejection from UVA arrived the same day a copy of the recommendation for targeted letter from a local judge did and my updated transcript was finally received by LSAC. Also, when I checked the mail there was a huge manila envelope which got my hopes up, and turned out to be mail from DHHS for someone that doesn't live here. Guess God does have a sense of humor. I knew that the rejection was coming, but I was really hoping they may be putting out some waitlists, which I don't understand. Very jaded that this whole thing is just about numbers-- lawyers work with people, shouldn't personality matter?

Not too happy with the way my cycle is turning out. Rejected from a school I was expecting in (ND) and no pleasant surprises with waitlists/acceptances. Very grateful for the schools I have, and know one will be a great fit, but ego is a little bruised. Anyways, planning on submitting an app to UNC last minute to hopefully add another option to the plate. Hoping some scholarship info will come from the other three schools soon to make my outlook a little more positive.

1/28/08- Just got an email for full tuition at Wake and I could not be more stoked! Love the campus, love all the admissions personnel I've met, and looking forward to the scholar's day in March. Is anyone else going? Email me! :-)

1/30/08- Practically half tuition to WandL. Came by email. Yeah! :-)

1/31/08- Last minute app to UNC. Little bit of a panic attack, but oh well.

3/6/08- Finally complete at UNC. Betting the decision won't come in time for April 1 deadlines at Wake and WandL, but who knows...

Hi, thanks so much for the kind words. I honestly think you're a shoe-in at W&M. I heard word from someone of LSD that they had the out of state tuition waived, I'm not sure if they applied for it or not. As far as my top choices I'd love to go to Vandy or maybe USC (some good school in a warm clime with D-1 football), we'll see how it plays out. Good luck!

Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 09:40 AM

I got an e-mail on the date listed on my profile. To be fair I sent in my app. to W&M ridiculously early, like 10/10 I think. You'll be fine, just hang in there.

Thursday, November 29 2007 at 03:16 PM

Good luck at Mason... I applied for early decision and was hoping to hear something early too! We have close numbers,,, hope you get in...

Sunday, December 02 2007 at 01:23 PM

LSN and LSD lingo for "rejection." I predict you will have none, or maybe one...

Friday, December 07 2007 at 09:24 AM

on William + Mary! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO hoping that I will hear from them soon too! No big deal about UGA! Keep em coming! You're on a roll now!

Monday, December 10 2007 at 06:52 AM

on W&M! I will now use my soothsayer powers to will us into Vandy. And go...

Congrats on WF
Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 11:06 AM

Congratulations on Wake and W&M! How did you hear about Wake? I'd love to go home tonight and find an envelope from either of them.

Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 06:47 PM

Congrats for the acceptances so far. I'll be sure to follow up on how you do the rest of the way through, good luck

Wake & Congrats

Congrats on the early acceptances! Wake is 1st on my list, so I'm excited to see that they're sending out acceptances now. How did you hear from them?

Congrats on WF
Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 07:41 PM

I am also curious about how you heard from Wake. Congratulations and good luck with the rest of your cycle!!!

You applying to UNC as well? Are you sick of it there and looking to move on?

Wednesday, December 19 2007 at 03:44 AM

No was just curious if it was the type of place you'd get sick of after a couple of years living there. I've visited there a couple of times and liked it very much and just wanted to make sure my impression was correct. Besides, I'm an out of stater which means I go in a different pile than you.

Wednesday, December 19 2007 at 07:28 AM

I applied RD, so I was kind of surprised to hear so soon.

Sunday, December 23 2007 at 08:22 AM

Those are some nice acceptances for this early in the game! We are numbers twins and I am rootin for ya. Go 166 crew!!

Monday, January 07 2008 at 03:00 PM

Are you considering Wake at all? As North Carolina person would you prefer UNC over Wake? I am just asking because both are on my list.

Friday, January 18 2008 at 05:45 AM

Sick numbers, Carolina!

Saturday, January 19 2008 at 06:40 AM

No, I'm really not sure yet. I really like Vandy and some other schools. My mind changes everyday, haha. You have some really great choices so far. Do have a #1?

Tuesday, January 22 2008 at 08:58 PM

I think Vanderbilt is trying to boost their numbers, that would explain all the 166's getting WL'd

Wednesday, January 23 2008 at 03:53 AM

Sorry about Vandy and ND. Def not a good sign for me either, haha. I know UNC has a great MPA program (I think it's ranked top 5). Any thoughts on staying home? Hang in there!

Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 05:17 AM

Wow! Congrats on that scholarship from wake! It's one of my top choices to attend right now, but I'm really worried about the expensive tuition. Hope they throw some money my way also!
