Typical ECs - lots of leadership.

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

I like reaches. A lot.

MBA 12/07.

3 years out of undergrad - 2 years FT WE and 1 year FT volunteer at a local school and other orgs.

1.29.08 - First substantive news... deferred to a second file review at UK. LOCI time. But hey, at least it's not a rejection! Wow, that first little envelope really gets your heart thumping... Regular envelope.

02.26.08 - Waitlisted at Temple. Not unexpected. I'm going to stay on the list. Given three weeks to submit the blue waitlist form and additional materials, including a "Why Temple." Regular envelope.

3.01.08 ***Middle of the night panic - applied to Indianapolis Indy after receiving an email fee waiver yesterday and Nebraska... because it seemed like a good idea. I'll probably get an acceptance today! (If I write it, it will come... right?)***

Later the same day...

OMG.... it actually happened - accepted at SLU with a Dean's Scholarship! $36,000 over 3 years. Yea! As cliche as it is, I'm going to law school. Large mailing envelope with folder inside.

Oh, rejected at UT - no biggie. I'm stunned it took them so long to say no! Waifer thin letter.

03.02.08 - Why was I so anxious to get decisions? Rejected at Maryland - not surprised, but was really hoping I'd at least be waitlisted. Oh well. Really nice letter, so that at least they let me down gently. Letter was dated 2.29.08 - thin, but not anorexic.

03.04.08 - I'm rethinking my Temple waitlist just because I'm not sure I'd love it there... any advice?

Also, status checker at Seattle says Decision Mailed - hopefully it comes soon! Ohhh... and up for review at UK again in early March per their letter... com'on UK - I really wuv you!

03.08.08 - IN at Seattle!!! Yea! Big envelope with folder inside - no mention of $$ and the materials were kinda lame. I've always wanted to live there - psyched to have the option.

03-10-08 - SQQUUUEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! In at Kentucky! Large envelope with a packet of papers and personalized note from Dean Bakert. With this news, I've decided to withdraw from the Temple waitlist - there are only a few schools I would go to over UK.

03-21-08 - HOLY #[email protected]&! WL'd at OSU? Seriously, I should have been outrighted rejected. I'm stunned! I just read about their wl and it seems impossible to get off of but still, they didn't say no!

In other news, UK has been doing an AMAZING job of making me feel loved... emails and snail mail every other day. Nicely played UK... really, well done.

03.28.08 - Accepted at IU-Indy. Four pages of paper folded in half.

That pretty much sums up how I feel about it, too. However, they did move UP in the rankings! Yay!

03.31.08 - Accepted at Kansas via phone call. I'm not really a phone type of girl, but still... it was my first and it was fun! Formal letter and more information on the way.

Hhhhmmmm... so at the moment, KU or UK? Advice, anyone?

04.07.08 - So, lots of updates. First off, I went to visit KU this weekend because to attend there, I needed to be sold on it. Although the downtown is nice and the people friendly, there was really no magic there for me. The school seemed kinda dingy and the tour guide didn't really sell the place. Learned a few really interesting things though so if anyone wants some info, leave me message. Lots of good info on doggie daycare/vets especially. Not withdrawing quite yet, but I'm almost 100% sure it's UK over KU.

Accepted at Nebraska - fun! Probably wouldn't really fly with me though as I didn't really care for the KU atmosphere and I imagine that to some extent they are very similar. Still, thanks Nebraska for the (quick) acceptance - I'm going to do some more research before I for sure say no.

Decided to withdraw from IU - Indy.

And last, the waitlist letter from WUSTL. Oh WashU, you are killing me. I'd sell my soul to attend class in your hallowed halls... a rejection might have been easier to handle! But, a wl it is so I'm not going down with a fight. Going to visit and profess my undying love in person. And call them everyday until they take me or send Guido to get rid of me. And, if that doesn't work, I think I'll be really happy as a wildcat.

04.09.08 - Cycle is nearing the end. Rejected by BAMA today - not surprised. Kinda thought I might at least get a wl, but whatever.

Also, got an email from Case Western... placing my file on hold and they hope to have a decision for me by LATE May. They've got to be kidding me with this crap. Withdrawing. Also, not staying on OSU waitlist... odds are against me and it's not worth the mental stress of "what if they call tomorrow, etc." WUSTL is the only school allowed to do that to me. :)

04.11.08 - Sent in seat deposit to UK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not putting the "A" up just yet, but it's pretty much a done deal. Unless UW would like to say yes...

04.14.08 - Withdrew from KU and UNL. I've been anticipating my rejection from Wisconsin for 3 days now... oh little envelope, where are you??

04.16.08 - Still nothing from Wisconsin, but I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a no from other LSN profiles (and Chiashu). Still, I'm gonna wait out the decision. ASU, though pretty and shiny in its brochure, means nothing to me. I'm not sure IU-B knows I exist and I'm pretty sure the town is too small for me. Sooo....

taking the plunge.

The "A" is up. YAY!

This hellacious process might just be over. For good.

04.19.08 - Received notice of a non-resident scholarship of $7,500/year at IU-Indy. Renewable for 2nd and 3rd years if I maintain a 3.3 GPA. Very nice of them... withdrew already, but very nice. I wish I'd known about this though - I already emailed UK for scholarship money and this would have been a bit more leverage!

04.23.08 - Rejected at Wisconsin. No one is surprised.

So, it's officially over. I wouldn't go to ASU and I'm not sure IU-B knows I exist.

And, I didn't send in my WashU waitlist form. For those of you who have watched my cycle, you might know that I would have given major body organs to go there but I guess the waitlist (and the tiny chance of getting off of it) really sealed the deal on KY. My life got busy and I actually just forgot about sending in the form, an LOCI, etc. Oh well... maybe it's my subconcious just saying to let it go.

And I did.

UK, here I come.

05.09.08 - Looks like IU-B knew I existed after all.

05.14.08 - End Scene.

I applied 12-20, but one of my LOR didn't arrive until 1-8, so my file wasn't complete until the 10th. I'd LOVE to go to Washington U, but I really doubt I get in. I love Case though, and am going to visit there this next month. What about you, top choice?

As far as a favorite, right now I'm really struggling with private education loans v. public education loans - the latter, of course, being significantly lower. I'm currently leaning towards public with good networking...which is looking like Buffalo (I'd like to practice in NY or DC, both are a drive away). Yesterday, however, spoke to someone from NY who really said some negative things about the city of Buffalo... So now I don't know! Ha. What are your tops?

  • Monday, February 11 2008 at 10:13 AM

Hey! I applied to U Nebraska almost entirely due to its location. I'm from South Dakota, and this is one of the closest schools I can apply to and have a shot at getting into, without actually going somewhere in South Dakota :) Sure, it sounds great in theory to move halfway across the country to New York or California or something, but sometimes I wonder if I even have the guts...I have to tell myself that I do, especially if it's for a dream school :) Anyways, I'll be tracking your success. Good luck with all your apps!

Thanks for the words. Marquette is a great school for both Health and Sports Law. Don't count yourself out at Wisconsin yet, I had slimmer chances at getting in U of I and heard good news. Ever thought of applying at U of I?

Ha..well I don't know about being an auto-admit, but I'm very excited to know I'm going somewhere....I don't think that I'll be visiting anytime soon. I just don't have the money right now. Otherwise, I would in a second. It's crazy how much you begin to doubt yourself in this process. Congrats on your advanced degree--that has to mean a lot in this admissions process!

  • Iowa
  • Thursday, February 14 2008 at 06:32 AM

Thanks for the congrats. I don't remember doing a deans certification to tell you the honest truth. I sent in my applications mid-late December, but my second LOR didn't get in until 1/10, so most of my applicatoins weren't complete until soon after that. I know it sucks playing the waiting game, but i'm sure you'll be hearing some good news soon.

- pwhiteh2

  • Sunday, February 17 2008 at 12:01 PM

Yeah, the Wisconsin letter did sting a little (or a lot). They actually say in the letter "there is no need to come to or call the office" so I figured it'll be a waste of a trip up there. It's still my top choice, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. If I eventually get rejected, I'll probably end up at Loyola or Case Western. You've picked a lot of great schools, what's your top choice?

  • Monday, February 18 2008 at 01:32 PM

Hey! Thanks for the message!! I'm still in complete shock! But yes, will definitely be going to UW in the fall! We went and took a look at condos near the school, but they are a little on the expensive side -- $300,000+ and anywhere from $200-$350 extra p/m in condo fees -- that's the killer! We are looking at houses a little further out of town -- apparently the west side is the best side :) I'm pretty freaking excited though! Let me know how you get on! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! ~K

  • Tuesday, February 19 2008 at 06:23 AM

Hmm, just remembered a couple of condos that we saw downtown for around $200k, but same monthly fees. Don't know if that's more in your buydget? They didn't have any outdoors areas though, and we too have a decent sized dog :) Hope you hear from somewhere soon -- maybe today is your lucky day, who knows?!!!

  • Friday, February 22 2008 at 05:42 PM

As for Creighton, I think it'd be pretty hard to beat a full tuition scholarship. I was a little weary of Omaha, but the more I research it the more I like what I find. So, yes, I would definately go to Creighton. I can't wait to find out where you end up going... hopefully Madison, WI.

Thanks....It's a little disappointing to be on a waitlist, but my numbers just weren't there and I didn't exactly get my apps out early. I'm going to remain on it until I hear back some decisions from other schools. How about you with Kentucky? I'm just amazed you haven't heard anything from any other schools yet! I think March is going to be a big month for most of our decisions. Are you regretting not applying anywhere?

I would love to go to Baylor, but I have two reservations; 1) the cost of tuition, and 2) the average private starting salary - its only 10k more a year than Creighton's.. what gives? What's the deal with the waitlists and deferrals? Are they crazy? It's better than a rejection though right - i mean they def. want you! So whats the diff between deferred and waitlisted?

- jimmycricket
  • Hey...
  • Friday, February 29 2008 at 08:46 AM

Well, I certainly have a lot of places I feel like I should have applied to...Tulane, Iowa, American, and Temple...just to name a few :) I'm seeing people with our numbers getting accepted to places like these while I'm just waiting around for any news at all. I'm almost scared to go home to my permanent address to find all the rejections there, lol. I was wondering if you had visited any of the schools on your list. I'd be curious to know what you thought of them. No, I haven't considered a June retake. I think I've just come to accept that I suck at the LSAT. Plus, a lot of the schools I applied to won't even look at February scores for this cycle. I might have to look into it, though. If there's anything that can help me out, I'll do it.

  • Kentucky
  • Monday, March 03 2008 at 03:35 AM

LOL - Kentucky is an awesome school. Wife Swap had this couple that was the epitome of hillbilly. But from what I hear Lexington is a great place to live and the U of KY is a great school. It seems like they are trying really hard to raise there rankings and are rejecting/waitlisting qualified candidates. I just put that to make myself feel better because they flat out rejected me and there letter wasn't very nice. Something to the affect of "we do not feel you are a qualifed candidate for admission to our law school...". Ouch!

Thanks for the kind words. I think I am going to call them just to figure out why, that way I may be able to do something about it to the other law schools. Not getting accepted while being in 75% median in GPA and LSAT is strange. As far as Temple goes, I live in Delaware which is 20 min from the school. Philly is great and the school has a great rep. Pretty good choice for a state school.

Great news on Kentucky!!! I have a phone interview with Stetson tomorrow, i'll be sure to post what they say. Yeah, I guess i'll have to send seat deposits to schools I would go while I wait for letters from others. Most schools I have had so far have a small refundable deposit due first.

thanks. i applied to IU-B on Jan 31st but I retook the Feb LSAT so I didn't become complete until 2/23 (when the score was released). I am really happy about IU-B. Its a great school and now I can just cross my fingers and wait for some of my reaches to come through. Good luck with the cycle!

  • Monday, March 17 2008 at 07:08 AM

You Should consider visiting a school soon, it was a really great experience! I'm sure you have read a lot about the law school experience, but the tour really clears things up. Sitting it on my first law school class was great and really put me at ease. Where are you living right now? Would you have an opportunity to visit UK?

  • Monday, March 17 2008 at 07:09 AM

Yea, I think I'm still leaning towards Illinois. The OSU ding hurt a bit but I'm not sweating it too much. Kentucky made the NCAA tournament though! So you have a new team to root for. Is Kentucky #1 so far of the schools you've been admitted to?

- pwhiteh2

  • Tuesday, March 18 2008 at 10:29 AM

I'm so happy for you about KU! And as for Wisconsin, I actually called yesterday and asked if they knew if I would hear before the April 1st deposit deadline for most schools. The woman I spoke to said that they tell people 6-8 weeks for review (I sent Jan 7th and went complete Jan 30th, so my 8 weeks is up next Wednesday) but that she really didn't know if I would hear before then. If I get dinged from Iowa (which I think I did) I will put down a deposit for my next choice and just pray not to be waitlisted at Wisconsin... I really don't want to hold out all summer for a school I have next to no chance at anyway, but I know I would. I just want to know where I'm going so I can be settled. And Mexico was great, haha. Nice distraction from this law school stress.

- pleasepickme
  • Thank you!
  • Wednesday, March 19 2008 at 05:58 AM

I am actually very positive about the whole thing. Looking at lsn, there is absolutely no reason I shouldn't have been rejected at Fordham, which makes me feel a whole lot better. I guess that's what I get for not really applying to any safety schools. A little bit of uncertainty's good every once in a while. These waitlists might make for a very long summer, though :)

  • Wednesday, March 19 2008 at 10:39 AM

for the congrats. :) yeah, i'll probably try and woo them, though i really doubt it will work. i'm certain that my numbers aren't high enough to be pulled from the waitlist, but who knows? lol. this whole cycle is so stressful! i just want to hear from everyone...right now! haha.

  • Villanova
  • Thursday, March 20 2008 at 07:31 AM

I'm not suprised, my LSAT is 3 points out of their bottom 25%. They dean told me that they are receiving 25% more applications than normal, too. On top of that it is a small school, only 200 students. Moreover, I don't think I would be able to go anyway. I only applied because my girlfriend wanted to try a few local places, but their tuition is high and its an upscale area. The only place I would consider going near my hometown is Temple because it is a state school. So far it looks like Texas for me! Where are you thinking?

- timmitchell
  • THANKS!
  • Monday, March 24 2008 at 05:36 AM

Yeah, UKY looks great. Philly is a great area, but I'm a little excited to try a rural area for a bit. My goal after law school is to work an elite firm in Philly so I better spend some time in the country while a can. Where do you live now?

  • Wednesday, March 26 2008 at 12:46 PM

Looks like you just did a few withdrawals yourself. ;) I think its better to withdraw as soon as possible so some lucky person on the waitlist can get in. Yes, I am pretty sure I'll end up at Utah. The state has a lot of natural beauty, the law school is ranked high, in-state tuition is very affordable, 90% of the grads pass the bar, everyone who wants to find a job does, and all my friends and family live here. What about you? Right now what 's your #1? Ketucky?

  • UCLA
  • Wednesday, March 26 2008 at 05:03 PM

  • TITLE REQUIRED
  • Wednesday, March 26 2008 at 06:21 PM

Thanks for the congrats! I was just thinking I need to re-evaluate my preferences. Florida is definitely one of my top choices. I thought the deferral was a terrible sign, but they came through for me in the end. I would be happy to go to any of these schools, but the warm weather in Florida would be a very hard thing to pass up. Which do you think is the better school overall - UF or Case?

- malissa07
  • OSU
  • Thursday, March 27 2008 at 07:51 AM

Great news with OSU, I'm glad UK is treating you well too. It's nice to feel like more than a LSAT and GPA matrix when dealing with all these schools. Yeah, I signed up for Myspace about 3 weeks ago. I avoided it forever too, but when I decided to move away from I wanted a way to keep up with friends and family. Its actually pretty cool, I don't know why I was against if for so long. You should give it a shot. Anyway, Northern Delaware is an urban area. Wilmington, DE is a pretty big city considering how small Delaware is. The suburbs of Wilmington on not rural at all, it's not until you get down south that things start getting rural. Everyone up here calls it "slow, lower delaware". Plus, in Wilmington you are about 20 minutes from Philly. Delaware has a lot of business but the city dosen't have a whole lot of night life. Where are you from, anyway? Did you got to school in your hometown? I got an fee waiver from Rutgers Camden today so I'll apply there, why not put out another application to make this process last two more months than it should have!

- timmitchell
  • thanks & congrats!
  • Friday, March 28 2008 at 01:36 PM

hey thanks for the congrats. i am really happy about UNC. i was hoping to get into a warm-weather area (b/c i am from TX) and NC is a great place weather-wise and reputation wise. and congrats on IU-Indy. they are shooting up the rankings! good luck w/ the rest of your cycle!!

  • Monday, March 31 2008 at 04:19 PM

Yeah, I can't believe I decided to try for Rutgers so late. They did send the email and had fee waiver, so it wasen't a big deal. I'll probably get an offer the day after I send in my final deposit to Tech. I heard Lubbock had a few wineries, I'm a big wine buff so I'll look forward to that. I still haven't gotten word from half my schools so who knows what will happen.

- timmitchell
  • congrats again!
  • Monday, March 31 2008 at 06:21 PM

this time on KU! it'd definitely be a fun basketball season :) (i have march madness on the brain). yeah, right now i'm really thinking that UNM is a good choice. i'm living here (albuquerque) now, and i've made some connections with lawyers and whatnot...plus the inexpensive tuition...it's just looking like the best choice. it feels good to at least FEEL like i'm nearing the end of this cycle. haha. congratulation to you again - you have some great choices!

  • Friday, April 11 2008 at 09:29 AM

I'm so happy to hear from someone else going to UK (or at least seriously considering it!) For a while I thought I'd be the only person with an "a" next to my status. As for the scholarship - I received the letter in the mail about a week after my decison letter. Weeks later, after being ridiculously impressed with UK reaching out to thier accepted students, I emailed Dean Bakert saying how much I appreciated all they're doing. I don't know if this is connected to my email, but a few days later I got an email from Dean Bakert telling me that they upped my scholarship. Maybe I sucked up a little, but I was okay with it because 1. they really have impressed me and 2. it worked! I'm going to be moving from Portland, Or. and have never been within 500 miles of Kentucky. Even though I know this is the right decision, I'm a bit nervous. Any general advice about the area/school? Did you go to accepted students day?

I'm still considering it, and I'm glad to hear it's that close to a few big cities. I'm definitely with you on the whole moving out of state thing...I don't know a whole lot about where I want to go, but it never once crossed my mind to stay in South Dakota, lol... Kentucky didn't offer you a scholarship? That's crazy...That's one thing that's holding me back from committing to any school right now, but hopefully I'll be making a decision soon!
