10/21/11- Got an email from California Western, awarded a Dean's Diversity Scholarship over $64,000...AWESOME, but hoping to see something similar from a T1 school?!

10/25/11- Sent a withdrawal of admission email to California Western. Hard to turn down that scholly but the T4 status and Spring Start were big deciding factors...hoping to start hearing some good news from other schools come Thanksgiving...

10/31/11- Fee Waiver from St. John's Law School and in review at W&L. Praying hard, email said I should hear back by November 15...wish me luck!

11/1/11- My email has been bombarded with schools inviting me to different admissions events and giving me info about themselves. Got a fee waiver from Georgia State University. Can I get some acceptance emails/letters already!?

11/2/11- In at Florida Coastal, found out via status checker, looks like it was updated yesterday. Boy does it feel good to have another acceptance! Keep em comin...

11/8/11- The anxiety is killing me. I'm status checker obsessed. Got an email that I should hear back from W&L on Thursday. Stutus checker date updated for University of the Pacific yesterday. Praying for the best!

11/10/11- In and W&L!!! SO EXCITED for my first T1 acceptance!!!!

11/11/11- In at Tulane! With $20,000 honors scholly, renewable for all three years. Thanking God for the blessings!

11/15/11- on hold at U Miami via myUM account, kinda lame but not so bad with the higher ranked acceptances I've received...

11/15/11- In at American!!! Yee!!! :)

11/22/11- In at University of Akron via email. Scholarship is $18,000 renewable and $13,000 non-resident stipend.

11/30/11- On hold for second review at Santa Clara University via status checker, notice sent out 11/29/11. On hold at MSU, they requested I send a Why Michigan letter. Under review at Cornell as of yesterday...PRAYING HARD ON THAT ONE...T15 would be ah-may-zing...staying positive :)

12/16/11- IN at Hofstra and Seattle U via status checker!!! So excited. I've been blessed more than I could have ever imagined. Giving glory to God!!!

12/20/11- In at Pacific McGeorge :) Yee!

1/9/12- First rejection of the cycle from Berkeley. It was a reach but this one hurts.

3/6/12- Haven't updated in a while, still waiting to hear from a few schools especially Cornell and WUSTL have visited dozo, w&L, and american planning on asw visit to u illi at the end of the month...come on CORNELL!!! will update stats soon. any ?'s about my cycle just ask!!!

3/9/12- In at U Miami via myum :) viva la sunshine! No word on scholly info though...

3/19/12- Withdrew from a few schools this morning. Got email frm Cornell that I've been placed on reserve. Was EA reserve now regular reserve. Will be sending another LOCI hoping to make the WL and admission!

3/20/12- WL by Emory. Sent LOCI.

4/13/12- Welp my cycle is pretty much over. Visited ASW's and ASD's at W&L, Cardozo, American, and UIUC. Put down first seat deposit at UIUC and am all set to attend in the Fall unless of course I'm accepted of the Cornell WL. Still haven't heard from Santa Clara but at this point I'm assuming it's WL or ding. My cycle was a success and I did far better than I could have ever imagined given my stats. Feel free to ask any questions about my cycle, this site and TLS have really carried me through the cycle with all the info and support! Thank you and GL to the rest of you!

05/11/12- Just got an email today to sign onto ecampus for Santa Clara U hadn't yet received my acceptance so a bit of surprise looks like I got in on May 9th. So this officially ends my cycle. Unless I magically hear back from Cornell, I will be attending UIUC.
