Additional info & updates

I work for a major law firm in Tampa and work under powerhouses that are President of the Florida and Federal Bar. My LOR's are pristine and I wrote an addendum regarding my poor standardized testing. Hoping for the best!

1-22-18- Called Widener Commonwealth and Barry School of Law to find out any info regarding my decision. Both said within the next week I should have a decision.

1-23-18- Rejected from Stetson by email

1-26-18- Phone call from Widener Commonwealth- Acceptance

1-29-18- Call from Dean of Admissions at Barry, accepted.
1-29-18 Accepted into Nova AAMPLE Program. What a joke, not accepting

2-1-18- Waitlisted to UB by email

2-2-18- Received scholarship award from Barry by text from Dean. $10,750/year with a 2.6 LGPA.

2-16-18- Rejected to Syracuse by status checker

2-21-18- Waitlisted to Hofstra by email and status checker

2-22-18- Sent LOCI's to both Hofstra and UB

2-23-18- Rejected to American by email. I expected this one. I feel I've had a lot more luck than others with similar scores this cycle. Praying for an acceptance off the waitlist from UB, but I have a few solid options

4-5-18- Spoke to the Dean at UB last week and he informed me to call around the 18th of April after deposits are due because he will have a better idea about the waitlist. Got a one week extension at Widener Commonwealth. If UB is a no or they have no solid answer that is where I will be putting my deposit down.

6-22-18- Accepted off the UB Waitlist on 6/21 via Status Checker and Email!!!!!!!

Wishing you the very best of luck, hope the schools do themselves a favor and grant admission. Interested to see only NE schools, aside from Barry, for a Tampa gal. Give 'em hell :)

Thank you! I'm really hoping to get off the Waitlist at UB, I'm from there and can move home with my parents! So I'm doing everything I can to make that happen! If not I'm hoping for Hofstra! But I toured Widener Commonwealth and they offered me a great scholarship so I am really taking that into consideration.

That would be good!

I wish I could go to school near home so I could cut the cost of living and be able to focus on just school

No something was really off. I had a b in both classes. Received a B final grade in one class and an F in The other after maintaining a B the whole program. Every one failed and no one got in even after maintaining good grades the whole program
