Really excited for this cycle! This is my first day posting on this site but so far...

1/14/14 - Accepted to Loyola-Chicago (notified by e-mail)

1/15/14 - Accepted to Marquette (notified by e-mail)

1/16/14 - Accepted to DePaul (notified by regular mail)

Keep them coming!

1/17/14 - Accepted to Catholic! (notified by e-mail)
Wow these are quick responses! It hasn't been more than a week and a half since my applications were sent out and I've had four acceptances so far. Although I'm thrilled about my first 3 acceptances, I'm excited that I now have the option to move out of state towards the east coast with the acceptance I received from Catholic.

1/19/14 - WOW! Received an e-mail from IU-Bloomington requesting an interview! It really seems that schools do look at the whole picture than just glancing at your UGPA/LSAT scores. Time to schedule some mock interviews with my school's career services!!

1/23/14 - Waitlisted at Minnesota and Miami (by e-mail and status checker, respectively). Rough day :(

1/29/14 - Waitlisted at WUSTL (notified by e-mail).

2/5/14 - Accepted off the waitlist for Miami! (notified by regular mail) Wooooo! Great feeling to have the option to escape the Midwest and bask in some southern sun for 3 years :)

2/6/14 - What an eventful week! Got a very nice phone call from George Mason when I was in marketing class. I finally broke into tier 1!

2/7/14 - What a great way to end the week :) Received an e-mail on my way up to Chicago that I am accepted to Chicago-Kent with a scholarship!

2/12/14 - Received an e-mail from Michigan State requesting a video interview where I send in a 5 minute clip of myself answering pre-determined questions. Interesting!

2/13/14 - Waitlisted at Pepperdine (notified by status checker).

2/14/14 - Accepted at Southern Methodist by receiving a very nice phone call with a really friendly admissions dean congratulating me!

2/18/14 - Waitlisted at Maryland (notified by status checker).

2/22/14 - Had my interview at IU-Bloomington.

2/25/14 - Waitlisted at Illinois (notified by e-mail)... this one stung in particular.

2/26/14 - Waitlisted at Iowa (notified by status checker).

2/27/14 - Waitlisted at Baylor for Fall 2014. If I apply for Spring 2015, I'm auto-accepted (notified by regular mail).

3/4/14 - Accepted at Michigan State by receiving a pleasant phone call and was offered a 25% merit scholarship (~27.5k over 3 years)
**Edit (4/3/14) Offered scholarship increase from 25% to 50%.

3/5/14 - Accepted to Case Western by e-mail and was notified that I would be receiving their leadership scholarship award!

3/11/14 - Rejected at Ohio State.

3/12/14 - Waitlisted at Tulane.

3/15/14 - Held at Florida State.

3/19/14 - Accepted to IU!!! What a mind-blowing cycle, I feel very fortunate about my acceptances and my cycle is nearly over! I think at this point I am mostly just waiting to hear back from Wisconsin in addition to seeing if I get off the waitlist at some of my other reach schools!

3/21/14 - Rejected at Utah.. but like I said all I really care about at this point is i) Wisconsin's decision, and ii) getting off the waitlist at either WUSTL, Iowa, or Illinois. I would also consider North Carolina or Minnesota if they provide reasonable scholarships! At this point, I am very ecstatic about my acceptance to IU and am now eagerly awaiting a Wisconsin response!

3/24/14 - Waitlisted at American University.

3/28/14 - Waitlisted at Colorado.

3/29/14 - Rejected at Alabama.

3/30/14 - Priority Waitlist at Emory.

4/1/14 - Accepted off the waitlist at Pepperdine. I don't plan to attend but I'm proud nonetheless! Going to start withdrawing from schools within the next couple weeks.

4/4/14 - Waitlisted at Penn State.

4/16/14 - Waitlisted at Wisconsin :( Well looks like IU is the ultimate winner! Stoked to be a Hoosier!!!

5/7/14 - Very strange turn of events!! Accepted off the waitlist from Minnesota with a great scholly!! I have a week to accept, so I might make a trip up to Minnesota to check it out and definitely weigh my options. I've already grown attached to IU since visiting their campus, but I know its very important to give Minnesota my full consideration since I'm deciding where to spend my life the next three years.

5/15/14 - Was invited to interview with WUSTL, but informed them I have already made a choice.

5/16/14 - Officially chose Indiana University after a major scholarship increase. Very happy with my choice and good luck to everyone!

I think I was waitlisted at Miami for about 2 weeks. I had my letter of continued interest like.. literally ready to mail that day and then checked my mailbox and I had an acceptance letter lol. Best of luck to you :)

Congrats on being accepted to pepperdine, I am currently waitlisted and I was wondering how they notified you once moved off the waitlist? Also did you send a Loci to pepperdine or any additional documents?

Hi KBS413! I got an e-mail yesterday from them telling me of my acceptance, but no scholly :( But yes, I sent a LOCI in the middle of February, a few days after I was waitlisted. Definitely send one in!!
