Applicant Information


Demographic Information

In Undergrad

Extra Curricular Information

4 years enlisted Army, Infantry.

LSAT score is a retake

Scholarship money is the 3 yr total.


1/05 Got the first batch of applications away.

1/26 In at tOSU via email! I also received an email from Dean Northern inviting me to apply for the Moritz. I want to practice in Ohio, so tOSU is one of my top choices.

2/05 Logged into my email this morning to find an acceptance from WUSTL! It's going to be a good day.

2/12 Just received the Leadership scholarship from OSU via email. Good times.

2/16 Decision mailed today at Vandy. Now just waiting for the mail...

2/18 -Wait listed at Georgetown via email. Disappointed and a little worried about my chances for some of my other apps.
-Moved to FR at Berkeley.

2/19 Received a nice acceptance package from Vanderbilt. They include a lot of information, and the orbiter dictum seems especially helpful.

2/23 Wait listed today at UVA.

2/24 Priority Reserve today at Duke via email.

2/25 Scholars in Law award from WUSTL!

2/26 Wait listed at UM via email. One of my top choices; I will probably ride this one out.

3/1 Dean's Scholarship from Vandy. I'm really looking forward to visiting later this month.

3/3 Rejected at NU via a complicated treasure hunt: email-->status checker-->open PDF--->rejection.

3/11 Rejected at UCB via status checker.

3/28 I really enjoyed Vandy's ASW. It felt like a good fit.

3/29 Waitlisted at BU via snail mail.

3/30 Withdrew from WUSTL and tOSU. All signs pointing to Vandy...

4/07 Withdrew from BU's, GULC's, and UVA's wait lists.

4/26 Rejected at Harvard via email.

4/27 Rejected at UChicago via email. My cycle is almost over.

4/29 Decision rendered at Cornell via status checker. There isn't any link to the admitted student page, so I'm assuming either a wait list or a rejection. I would've needed a decent scholarship to pull me away from Vandy; so it finally looks like my cycle is over. Vandy it is!

5/03 Called Cornell today, and the admissions office confirmed I've been placed on reserve.

Thanks. Nice job with yours too. I am getting nervous about BU though, people had some calls today. Good luck and see you around TLS. I loved reading Rawls in underground, btw.

thanks for the luck. i can use as much of it as possible for this cycle. congrats on the $$$ from WUSTL! j/w - what schools are you leaning towards. it seems you have a bit of a mid-western preference.

  • OSU Withdrawal
  • Monday, March 29 2010 at 02:55 PM

Sorry to see your planned withdrawal. I'm still in the throes of deciding...it's between OSU and UArizona, unless Wash U should do the unthinkable and accept me. Best regards, Woof

Thanks for the note. Good luck with the rest of your cycle, and let me know where you finally end up.

I wanted to end up in the midwest as well, but its looking like NYC. For some reason, almost EVERYONE wanted to waitlist me. May i ask- what was ur MOS?

How likely do you think is getting off the waitlists?? Are you planning on sending LOCIs? It looks like I will be going to UCLA at the moment.. Vandy for you?

Wow, sorry. I didn't check back at LSN until now. I got into Michigan and jumped on the Ann Arbor train. Hope you're having fun at Vandy! I'm going to miss the thought of non-lethal winters...
