I got into law school three times. Scholarship is per year.
01/25/08-In at DePaul via snail mail. Large white envelope.
01/26/08-In at Quinnipiac via e-mail/a regular sized envelope.
01/29/08-Rejected at BC via a regular envelope with a single sheet of paper. Not suprising.
02/01/08-Waitlisted at Loyola via snail mail, came in a regular envelope. A little suprised about this one.
02/12/08-Rejected at GW via snail mail. Regular sized envelope.
02/13/08-Accepted at St. John's via a phone call from the Assistant Dean. I was told that an informational packet will arrive shortly. Hopefully some scholarship info will be enclosed? We'll see I guess.
02/15/08-Rejected at Fordham via status checker. Again, not suprising.
02/22/08-Waitlisted at American via snail mail. small, white envelope. I was hoping to get in because my index is equal to or greater than many admitees, but I guess their GPAs are all lower and their LSAT scores higher. That must be what got me. Good luck to everyone with scores in the high 150's.
03/10/08-I called Northeastern today to see what was taking so long. Apparently they've decided to hold my application and compare it to others yet to come in. So no decision will be made until a second review. blah. Hoping to have this cycle over soon.
03/24/08-Waitlisted at Ohio State via white, regular sized envelope. Took them awhile, but it's better than a flat out rejection I guess. And, as much as I don't want to be in Ohio, it's by far the best school that I still have an opportunity to attend.
04/07/08-Waitlisted at Northeastern and withdrawn. I'd rather be in NY than Boston and Northeastern is ranked the same as St. John's. So it's not appealing. I originally meant to withdraw from Loyola, but never got around to it. I might stay on now just in case I get in as the new US News poll shows that St. John's has fallen well below Loyola. I'm glad the cycle is over, excluding the possibility that I would get into a waitlisted school. Disapointed in the outcome, but that's life. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear stuff.
04/09/08-I had an interview at Quinnipiac this weekend for a full ride scholarship. I got it, plus a $1,500/year financial stipend, a research opportunity with a faculty member and more. It's not a bad deal. Quinnipiac isn't the best school out there, but free education seems pretty nice. If anyone out there has any opinions on what I should do--St. John's or Quinnipiac, or hold out for another school I've been waitlisted at, I'd appreciate it.
04/16/08-I chose Quinnipiac. The scholarship was too good to turn down. Good luck to everyone in 1L.
