October and November: Sent out all applications through LSAC.
December 14: First rejection-Georgetown. I was expecting it though, and since I'm not really kin about going there; it's all good. This cycle should be interesting.
December 22: Acceptance letter from Buffalo! A big, white envelope came in the mail. I was so happy!
December 31: Rejected at Boston. I wasn't too pleased about this. I really wanted to attend Boston. Oh well, it's one of those things. We'll see what happens with the remaining pending schools.
January 16: Got a call from the dean of admissions at Roger Williams about my acceptance, a half tuition scholarship and a $500 stipend for books. I will be receiving information in the mail in 48 hours.
January 18: Is anyone tired of waiting, 'cos I am. It's driving me crazy. For days now, I've been obsessed with checking my status on law schools' websites, for those schools that provide the opportunity. I almost cannot wait any longer!
January 23: Got a call from New England. Scholarship offer is per year.
January 24: I kind of expected to be rejected from GM but I was disappointed about Pace. I'll stay on Albany's wait list. This is a strange turnout!
January 28: Received an e-mail from the University of Iliinois that my application has been put on hold. At least, there's still hope!
January 28 8:00pm: Deferred at Northwestern. This simply made my day! I will have to send my recent transcripts and another LOR. This is great.
January 30: Amount for Florida Coastal is annual.
February 4: Rejected from Rutgers-Newark. I sure was disappointed but I've moved on and accepted it. All will be well; I know it!
February 8: Called Villanova because I couldn't wait for the decision letter to get to the mail. "It was a denial" the admission's person said. Well...there we go again!
February 27: Got a call from Buffalo that I have been awarded a fellowship. Amount is per year. This made my day, week and month. Law school without loans? You can't beat that!
March 8: Considering all factors, I've finally decided to attend Buffalo. I'll be visiting next month...I know it's the right school for ME. Good luck to everyone else during this circle; mine is finally over!
March 12: Got an e-mail from UIUC that I've been put on the waiting list. It does not really bother me at this point....
March 20th: Decided to withdraw from Cuse today so that someone else can take the opportunity. GOOD LUCK!
April Fool's Day: Got a call from a 1L at Northeastern about their decision...at last! Anyway, I don't know about this.
April 7th: With Wash & Lee, I was so expecting it. Haaaaaaaa....To be honest, I completely forgot about it until my dad told me.
April 16: So I decided to call Cardozo today since I've been waiting for months now to hear from them. You can imagine that I was not surprised when the lady at the other end told me that I was rejected. I simply smiled and thanked her for the information.
As it stands now, it is obvious that I'm off to Buffalo in the Fall. I'll be driving up there with my family next weekend for the last ASD...Yay!
UB: This is just to let anyone who is still on the fence about Buffalo know that it is indeed a great school. After attending the accepted students visit, I am confident that the legal education that I will receive there will be comparable to any.
