Got my first rejection, from Chicago-Kent :(
I'm not surprised though, since I actually made a few silly mistakes on that application. Never really planned on going to Chicago anywho.

03/19/08
Rejected from Denver. This was a bit of a let-down, but it probably wasn't going to happen anyways since I didn't expect any scholarship $$. I'm not paying full price for a school of this caliber.

03/24/08
Waitlisted at UIUC. I hope I hope I hope I hope...

04/01/08
Turning into Mr. Waitlist with Cardozo today. Oy. Must be 'cause I'm such a wierd splitter. Tra la la...

04/05/08
Waitlisted at Wash U. I hate this I hate this, but I hope I hope I hope...

04/16/08
Accepted at UIUC!!! We may have a winner here!

04/18/08
Waitlisted at Wisconsin + Temple.

05/28/08
Accepted to Minnesota via phone call.
Hmmm... Decisions...

06/10/08
Rejected from IU. Whooptie-doo. Wasn't gonna go there anyways. Either they figured that out, or it was just 'cause of my rediculously late application...

*******
Scholarships are total over three years.

Quinnipiac: depends on top 1/3 of my class, lessening with classrank.
DePaul: 3.30 or greater.
Albany: Top 50% of my class.
UIUC: Good standing :)

how did albany notify you?

quinnipiac
Wednesday, July 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

they schools ive heard from so far, quinnipiac is my top choice. it was actually pretty high up there to begin with... are you considering going there in the fall?

yay for splitters
Friday, March 21 2008 at 08:00 PM

hey there ~ michigan is probably my #1 although i know i have practically zero chance there. i want to study child & family law or public interest law so that's affecting my decision a lot. so far i'm just excited that no one's rejected me (won't last too long). i thought for sure i'd be put in the 'no' pile right off the bat for my gpa. did you write an addendum re your gpa?

got my 3rd waitlist yesterday from loyola - pissed me off! i know it's my fault for applying late & the whole splitter thing, but i still hate it. and yes, i agree, once we actually get into schools after sitting on the waitlist forever, we'll never divulge our gpas! haha:)

congrats on the money at Albany- I've got a friend who will be going there in the fall.

Thanks

Thanks for the support. You look like you are doing well this cycle! I definitely wish I had applied earlier, that was the plan but my booched first LSAT (June) attempt crushed me and it took awhile to recover. In Jan. I decided I was going to take the LSAT again and apply. We'll see how it goes, I most likely will end up doing another cycle.

looks like we both just got the waitlist letter from washington. i'm the freakin queen of waitlists now - on 7! i've figured out that if you get an envelope that's thin but has 2 pieces of paper in it, it's a waitlist - 1 piece is the letter & 1 is the 'yes, please keep me waiting in purgatory' form to send back. good luck with getting off wash u's waitlist!

hey, congrats to you too on uiuc! the offer is tempting but champaign is my hometown so i'm a little hesitant to go there (great town though). keep me updated on where you decide to go - looks like both of us are waiting to here from colorado & minnesota and trying to get off the waitlist at wash u. can't wait to get this all figured out!

so...
Friday, March 21 2008 at 08:00 PM

i finally decided to attend U of I. you make any decisions?

Minnesota!
Wednesday, April 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on UIUC and Minnesota I\'ll be headed to Minnesota. I\'m actually pretty happy about it. Did you ask them for some money to match Illinois? Hopefully I\'ll see you there in the fall.

Wash U

that makes sense. congrats on minnesota! let me know if you have any questions about champaign-urbana (i lived there about 15 years). good luck with your decision!

U of I
Friday, March 21 2008 at 08:00 PM

Awesome! Congrats on the decision. See you in August!!

UI vs BU
Sunday, December 23 2007 at 07:00 PM

Trying to decide between BU and UI. Do you feel BU offers more opportunities as far as firm jobs are concerned?
