12-2-05: $12,000 Renewable Scholarship from Florida Coastal. 13th Choice. Only going there if it's the only place I get into.
12-7-05: Received a regular-sized small white envelope from Michigan State (dated 11/28/05) and thought it was going to be a "We received your application" letter, but it was an acceptance. Received a phone call the next day congratulating me.
12-12-05: Received acceptance letter and a $10,000 scholarship in large sized white envelope from Tulsa.
12-16-05: Received acceptance to Albany in large envelope with folder of information in it.
12-27-05: Received acceptance letter and $5,500 scholarship from Gonzaga (don't know what it came in because my roommate read it to me over the phone).
1-4-06: Received letter from Miami dated 12-22-05 telling me that my "application has been reviewed and no final decision has been made at this time." I'm assuming that means it's a deferral... better than a rejection I guess?
1-24-06: Another deferral... Rutgers this time. I'm sending my fall grades later today and hoping for the best.
1-26-06: Received rejection letter from Denver.
2-13-06: Rejected from New Mexico. I think it's funny that the average rejection from UNM on this site has higher numbers than the average acceptance. I had no interest in going there anyways.
2-18-06: Waitlisted at Penn State. Guess I'm not going there.
2-21-06: Saint Louis decided to take a chance on me. I will be visiting over Spring Break. Maybe I'll see Nelly.
2-24-06: I will be visiting 3 law schools in a week over Spring Break. I will be DRIVING with a friend up to my parents house in New Jersey, then to Albany, Michigan State, St. Louis, and back to school in Virginia. It is a grand total of over 3,100 miles in a week
3-11-06: Back from the roadtrip. It's between MSU and SLU right now, with Miami and Rutgers still pending.
3-22-06: It's looking like I'm headed to MSU... still waiting on a few more pending apps... don't think I'll be getting into any of them though
4-3-06: Got placed "on hold" by Case after they reviewed my file... i'm very surprised I wasn't outright rejected
4-11-06: Still waiting on Rutgers, IUPUI, and Case... MSU deposit going in at the end of the week if I still haven't heard from any of those
4-14-06: Sent MSU deposit in. Still waiting on Rutgers and Indiana for the time being.
5-2-06: IUPUI Admissions are the rudest most incompetent people I've dealt with in this process. Indiana is a weird state anyways.
5-9-06: Waitlisted at Rutgers. Going to call today to see what my chances are. I would drop everything and go there if they let me in. Otherwise, looks like I'm going to be finding an apartment in East Lansing pretty soon.
7-12-06: Got into Rutgers! Going there! Woohoo!
*Well, 7 acceptances, 2 waitlists, 4 rejections isn't so bad for somebody with my numbers!*
