BYU
Thursday, December 27 2007 at 11:34 AM

They notified me by email but I'm still waiting for the letter in the mail which is supposed to contain a scholarship offer. Have you heard from anywhere yet?

Congrats!
Friday, January 04 2008 at 12:12 PM

Congrats on your acceptances!!!!

im
congrats
Sunday, January 06 2008 at 08:30 AM

congratulations on your acceptances. I applied in november but you probably applied earlier if you already got acceptances. In any case hope the rest of your applications have good results.

Thanks
Friday, January 11 2008 at 08:15 AM

Thanks for your wishes. I didn't apply to many schools. With my low LSAT score, I don't anticipate getting accepted. According to all the data, I have zero chances. If I get accepted this year, it will be truly a miracle. I plan to retake the LSAT if I don't get accepted this year. Thanks for your tip to applying to safety schools. Good luck to you too!

Thanks!
Monday, January 14 2008 at 11:28 AM

Thank you! I sty to stay positive to keep my sanity during this process. Congrats to you so far on all of your great acceptances!!! Your cycle is going awesome! Best of luck on Utah and BYU! Im rooting for you as well....

Good luck on Utah
Saturday, January 19 2008 at 07:48 AM

Yes I did get a call from Dean Agular yesterday, it was very exciting. Good luck on your cycle, I hope that you get Utah!

Congrats!
Wednesday, January 23 2008 at 05:23 PM

That's awesome that you are in at the U! I'm really happy for you! All the stress can now leave!

Congrats!!
Thursday, January 24 2008 at 10:04 AM

Congrats on Utah!! Marquette is one of my top choices!

Felicidades!
Saturday, January 26 2008 at 09:07 PM

Awesome re: Univ. of Utah!! I still haven't heard from them, myself. I will probably stick to U of Az unless I get a huge scholarship from another school..

thanks...
Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 08:56 PM

thank you for your kind words. Actually, i am not sure if i even want to attend thomas jefferson... if that was my only choice, i'll probably end up applying again next cycle. I hope i have similar good luck that you seem to have! keep in touch, bro!

Hey!
Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 05:56 AM

We do have some similar stats but you kicked my butt in the GPA part :-P good job! I would LOVE chicago or something but that is a bit of a far shot. I don't really know about school but I def. want a good location. What about you?

SLU
Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 04:40 PM

Did you ever receive an email stating that your application was complete for SLU? I've received nothing and I wasn't sure whether it is normal or not...

Utah
Sunday, February 03 2008 at 08:34 AM

Congratulations on Utah, that has to feel good!

hey
Monday, February 04 2008 at 10:17 AM

congrats on all the schools and if I were you I would talk to the school of my choice and ask them if they can spare some money saying that USC gave you $12,000 (at least that is what the people of color booklet tells you to do). Wouldnt hurt to try.

correction
Monday, February 04 2008 at 10:19 AM

Sorry 15,000

buffalo
Tuesday, February 05 2008 at 12:47 AM

did buffalo law school sent you an application completion email?

Thanks
Wednesday, February 06 2008 at 09:49 AM

I'm happy with Houston but BYU would be a great choice as well. As far as my status, it says "in review" and its been like that since the start of Jan.

Congrats
Wednesday, February 13 2008 at 07:43 PM

It's nice to see someone else applying that is similar to me. It looks like we both applied to BYU and UU. Congrats on acceptance to the U. I applied last year and got waitlisted at both. Guess we will see what happens this year. Wish me luck. If we happen to end up at the same school (thats if I get in at either) we should hook up. Like you I am non-traditional 31, married, 2 kids, been working in sales/marketing/nursing/healthcare for 13 years. Well I hope to get to meet you some day.

Regarding your congrats
Thursday, February 14 2008 at 05:37 AM

Thanks! I was actually really surprised. I was sure they were going to ding me, because of the sequence of acceptances that were already released. Apparently, they are not reviewing apps in the order of submission or completion, so you're still very much alive. Good luck!

Thanks & Well wishes to you also!
Saturday, March 01 2008 at 06:56 AM

just wanted to say thanks - being over 35 and in the midst of mostly 20-somethings is challenging to say the least. I lived in Portland for years; one of my friends actually graduated from L&C and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Best wishes

Thanks!
Wednesday, March 05 2008 at 11:06 AM

Thank you for your words of support! Good luck on your applications as well!! Looks like you have a lot of great prospects!

Congrats on UB Law Acceptance
Monday, March 10 2008 at 01:29 AM

Congrats on your acceptance to the University at Buffalo Law School ! I am a first year student there and the place is amazing. I would invite you to take a serious look at UB Law for some of the following: --Being the only law school in the entire State University of NY and being rated a STRONG Tier 2, it is known as the best public law school in the entire northeast. --The faculty are top-notch. My criminal law professor wrote the text used across the country. --Every first year student has a mentor. Mentors are UB alums and practicing attornies. --No curve in any class....this means folks help one another, cheerlead one another.... --After first year there is only one required course....YOU GET TO CRAFT YOUR 2nd and 3rd year program !! --Tuition is very low --You get to have WORLD CLASS SNOWBALL FIGHTS ! Best wishes !

Wow
Thursday, March 13 2008 at 07:07 AM

Man oh man your cycle is turning out pretty good. Are you still waiting on one school or have you made your mind up? That Saint Louis acceptance is money!

Buffalo
Friday, March 14 2008 at 12:44 PM

Hi, is your fellowship for UB over 3 yrs or per yr? And can you tell what it is you did to qualify for it (call them, fill out a form, etc.)? Thanks.

Still waiting
Friday, March 14 2008 at 02:09 PM

Hey buddy! Still waiting for BYU, I see. Does the money from Marquette come with contingencies? I'm still waiting on my replies. It's getting warmer and I am getting more anxious!!

Congrats!
Saturday, March 15 2008 at 09:58 PM

Congrats on all of your acceptances! Are you leaning towards any particular school?

hey
Wednesday, March 19 2008 at 05:12 AM

Congrats on all of your acceptances

The U
Tuesday, April 08 2008 at 01:26 PM

I got my scholarship notification the week before the open house. I did go, and had a great time and have already put in my seat deposit for the U. It was between the U and Baylor only because Baylor gave me a full scholarship, but the one from Utah is almost as good...and I will save some money just by not having to move! So are you going to the U then over Buffalo?

See you at the U
Monday, April 21 2008 at 08:31 AM

I'll look forward to seeing you at the U this fall. I'm really excited to be going there.

UB
Monday, April 28 2008 at 05:53 AM

I visited Buffalo and I think I like the school. I'm excited about law school now, even though I'm sort of nervous. Good luck at Utah; I wish you the best of luck!

U
Friday, May 23 2008 at 12:29 PM

See you there!
