Cycle's done... I quit updating dates, but the ones below should at least be helpful to some of you guys.
03/24/09- Final update. Over the past few weeks, I have received law school stuff galore. I was slightly (only slightly) disappointed with my scholarship from Vanderbilt, I was extremely impressed with my scholarship from WUSTL, and I was (and still am) overwhelmed by the opportunity to graduate debt-free from the best school within my home state. I was rewarded the Ashland Co. Scholarship from Kentucky- the highest scholarship UK offers. My wife and I plan to move to Lexington this August to begin the next stages of our lives and the first stages of me becoming a lawyer.
02/23/09- Big day- $26,000 from UK and $84,000 from Emory. Still holding out for a full ride from both.
02/02/09- Deferred at Columbia. I may stick this one out- not really sure yet.
01/21/09- Dean's Scholarship from Michigan- only requirement is a 2.0 GPA.
12/12/08- I am in at WUSTL, via e-mail today. I fear that this may be my last acceptance...
12/11/08- First bad news... waitlist at Virginia. I'm not surprised, and honestly, I wasn't going to go to Virginia anyway- still, it is disappointing. Went ahead and withdrew my application.
12/10/08- Phone call from the Dean of Admissions at Emory- I'm in. This is super exciting.
11/27/08- Letter from UK- I am under consideration for UK's most prestigious scholarship: full tuition, plus $5,000 annual stipend. I plan on interviewing in January.
11/26/08- Big package at Michigan- I'm in. I'm a little surprised, but very pleased.
11/22/08- In at Vandy! Huge package, priority mail. I am so excited!!! UPDATE: After speaking with adcomms from Vandy, I found out that I would probably qualify for a merit scholarship, but it is too early to know an amount. I was informed that I will know what kind of money I am looking at in February.
11/21/08- Snail mail from Kentucky- I'm in. Cool! Call me crazy, but the right offer would at least make me consider UK.
11/19/08- Vandy Application Status Checker has changed to Decision Sent. Good news... now I just have to hope nothing disastrous happens with the mail.
9/19/08- Accepted to Duke (Priority Track); e-mail (the scholarship package came maybe three or four days later)
10/08/08- Complete at Michigan (This means I am complete everywhere!)
10/03/08- Complete at Harvard (status checker says "Under Review" so I am assuming...)
10/01/08- Complete at Columbia
9/25/08- Complete at WUSTL (called office to find out)
9/24/08- Complete at Vanderbilt
9/19/08- Complete at Kentucky
