How long did it take you to hear back from Akron?

Only about two weeks. They've been pretty awesome throughout the process too. I'm not actively considering Akron, but they've definitely demonstrated how much better they are than Toledo. I found out about my Toledo acceptance through their website and I haven't heard anything about it otherwise. Akron's assistant dean of admissions called to congratulate me, has sent me a number of very nice emails and they gave me my scholarship amount immediately.

Are your scholarship amounts annual? Or total over three years?

All of these are annual!

Did they put you on hold or tell you that you are on the wait list?

On hold, and I actually just fixed that so thank you for catching it! My GPA is atrocious from my early undergrad struggles, so all of these holds and waitlists are not surprising.

If you don't mind me asking, what do your extracurriculars look like? As you said, despite doing well on the LSAT, your GPA isn't the highest. I'm curious as to what fills out the rest of your resume.

Good question, shan/moon! I apologize for taking so long to respond to it. I've been working full time throughout most of undergrad in what can be considered a career position for many people (about 60k/year, white collar). I also volunteer with about a dozen organizations. The work experience is pretty helpful and the volunteering softs help, but the biggest factor as it relates to my GPA is my health. I was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis early in 2016 (I'm 25), and I went untreated for about five years. My health (or lack thereof) played a pretty substantial role in my GPA--I was actually pretty resigned to the idea that I would never graduate from college prior to my diagnosis. I just thought I was lazy. Since getting diagnosed and beginning treatment, my GPA is around 3.4 (three semesters since being diagnosed). I know the schools I have been accepted to have noted an upward trend as part of the reason for my acceptance. Overall, I'd say the upward trend in my GPA, demonstrated balance of full-time work/full-time school, and my LSAT score propelled me more than anything else. That being said, it's incredibly unlikely that I would be accepted into any school even close to a T14. I'm just happy that I got in to a decent school with a decent scholarship. Sorry for being long-winded, I hope this answers your question!

Is Toledo offering to cover cost of living?

- zzanetta88

No, the scholarship covers tuition, fees, and a summer externship stipend.

Oh, that's cool. Congrats.

Thank you! I'm actually going to pass on Toledo, but they were great to work with!
