LSN randomly deleted this section and Extra info for some reason. Here is the summary so far:
1/15/08 - Deferred ED at GW. I applied FT/PT.
1/21/08 - In at UGA via status check! Got the letter a week and a half later. I love Athens and their summer in China program
1/30/08 - In at American via priority mail envelope! D.C. is the only other place than Athens I would like to go. Excited about this acceptance; I'm hoping the trend continues. Was not notified of completion.
2/4/08 - WL at GW via small envelope. C'mon onnnn...
2/21/08 - Reject at mason via small envelope...the lowest of my D.C. choices, and almost free to apply, so not too upset
3/3/08 - Provisional WL at ND
3/7/08 - GULC rejection in small window envelope
3/22/08 - W&M WL. Probably will ride this out
In summary, it appears that American is the place right now. I'm too anxious to work and study in Washington, and, based on some research and thought about what type of law I want to practice, American is the best fit of my options. That being said, I will pursue GW as much as is appropriate and hope for a miracle.
I began prepping for the lsat in July; it appears that my waitlist waiting will take me at least until May and probably longer. It is hard to imagine that, all things considered, I will have been actively working toward (in the sense of applications and LSAT) this for nearly a year and perhaps more. Then again, I've really been positioning myself for law school during my undergrad and really as far as I can remember. To all others going through this process, keep you head about you -- time will go no faster or slower despite attempts to the contrary. Best of luck to all other applicants. I will try to update as I hear from GW and W&M.
