7/15/2008 From my profile you can tell that I have decided to go to BYU. There are a lot of reasons why. It was not my least expensive choice, it was the best choice though. I just bought my laptop for school and I have registered for classes. Crazy that it is all starting to feel more real.
4/10/08 With the first seat deposit coming up I am almost ready to make a final decision. Part of me doesn't want to make the decision because the fun of applying to law school will be over. I've narrrowed it down to Pepperdine, Emory, San Diego, and BYU. All great schools. Right now I will probably go to BYU for various reasons.
A couple weeks ago I recieved the 'hold' letter from Chicago. They said I could supplement my file and I did so. Now I am just waiting to hear the final word. They said it would be a couple weeks.
3/10/08 Email from Houston saying I had been accepted and that an official letter is on the way. Let's see if they are goin to hook it up with some money.
3/7/08- Just got the bye bye email from Harvard. It was fun hoping at least. Next weekend I am going down to visit pepperdine and and BYU. Hopefully after next weekend I will know where will be the best fit for me. I also visited Santa Clara last week and I really like the campus and the people there.
1/25/08 San Diego by mail. and penn st by email with more information on the way. Now that I have gotten into BYU the only schools I will go to if I happen to get in are the top schools that I am still waiting to hear from.
1/17--Notified by e-mail from BYU.
12/21--How bout them december lsat scores. I am very happy with the new score huge improvement from the first school and now I am wishing that I had applied to more of the top schools. I have some decisions to make the next couple days. I will probably apply to a couple more schools though. The new score is a huge relief...life changing definitely.
12/03-Well, the december lsat went much better...I probably increased my raw score by at least 10 points, I hope, and so hopefully that will be reflected in the curve...you just never know though. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel with the apps..this week will be my last application week and then the waiting game...which I am greatly looking forward to.
11/29--Though definitely a super duper duper long shot I just had to apply to Harvard, Berkeley and Chicago...with the fee waiver I felt like I should and plus on saturday is the lsat so who knows....maybe I will be able to improve my score some...we will know soon enough. Just a couple of more schools to apply to and then I can enjoy the rest of the holidays!!!
11/14--whether I like it or not the dec. lsat is coming up soon and I am going to retake it. I have been doing a little study but I am going to do more now. It is crazy how much just a couple more points on the lsat will help me out. GL to everyone else who is planning on taking it in dec. as well.
11/08---The first, and hopefully not the last, ACCEPTANCE letter came today from tulsa. Would you guess, it came with some money also. It is hard to describe how it feels to receive the first one. I don't think they will all be as exciting but this is definitely special. Believe me, it will happen to you too. Most of you are as deserving if not more than I am.
10/14--Still working on personal statement. I am going to need a good one.
If anyone can add any schools to my list please tell me so I can update this. Thanks
10/16--More personal statement
10/22 Well, the scores are in and I am not as smart as I was hoping to be. I'll probably take it again in December and in the mean time apply to some of the smaller schools. It's very disappointing!!!!!
10/23 My first app is finally out. It feels good. I wish I would just know right now what the answer will be. It is the first of many though. Here we go.
10/24--5 apps submitted today. Feels good. It is going to be interesting to see what schools respond the quickest.
