I remember how much I appreciated the "Extra Info" when I was starting out, so i'll try to keep this updated.
7/10- My first fee waiver, from W&M. so exciting!
8/20- George Mason
9/7- University of Illinois
9/18- W&L via email
10/12-Lewis & Clark

10/31/07- Submitted my first 2 applications, AHH! Good luck to all of my fellow applicants, we have a lot of waiting ahead of us.
11/03/07- Mailed Dean's Cert to Cornell today. I'm pretty sure they'll ding me but it won't be for lack of trying. Working on getting my last handful of applications out.
11/09/07- complete at W&M by email.
12/12/07- Illinois status checker changed to 'decision, letter mailed'. My obsessive mailbox checking has increased tenfold.
12/13/07- Fordham status checker changed to 2nd evaluation, whatever that means. Come on schools, I need some good news!
-------Looking back at last year's LSN cycle, Fordham's '2nd evaluation' seems to be a deferral after all. Oh well, i'm going to keep my hopes up!
----That's more like it! My 1st acceptance letter, from the University of San Diego, was waiting in my mailbox! I'm going to law school!!!!
12/17- Rejected by BC. Thin envelope. I knew they were unpredictable but I hoped for at least a waitlist or deferral. :(
---Accepted at Illinois ($$ is over 3 years).
12/19- Called BU and a nice woman confirmed that my application is complete. Please be kind to me Boston.
---received official "on hold" letter from Fordham via snail mail. I'm not giving up yet.
12/24- Sometime Saturday night (12/22) my Cornell Status Checker turned to decision and the small envelope came today. Deferred! I'm thrilled, haha! Yeah yeah i'm still not getting in, but a girl can dream! Woohoo!
01/04- Acceptance email from Washington & Lee! Yay!!
01/08- Phone call from Cardozo letting me know I've been accepted w/ a $30,000/yr scholarship. My first NY acceptance!
01/14- In at Emory! Phone call from the Dean of Admissions :)
1/17- Dear Boston University,
Last year you started sending out decisions in December. Please stop this torture and let me in!
1/18- After receiving a fee waiver email that noted they "had not yet received my application" I called Brooklyn. Found out my file is complete after all, and is even "in committee". Maybe decisions will start rolling out soon?
1/19- Received letter from Brooklyn (dated 1/14) confirming that my file is complete. According to the status checker everything was in over a month ago, but i'll go by the letter.
1/25- finally received the green 'complete' postcard from BU. Apparently "most applicants receive their decision within 6-10 weeks". Please don't let it actually take that long.
1/30- notified of W&L scholarship by email- $15,800 annually. letter to follow.
2/05- letter from USD offering $17,000/yr conditional scholarship.
2/06- happened to check an old email address I never use anymore and stumbled upon an acceptance from Brooklyn Law School from yesterday. Whoops! (:
2/22- The Feb LSAT is a beautiful thing!!
2/29- Waitlisted at Fordham. Happy leap day to you too.
3/3- W&L scholarship bumped to $19,800!
3/19- scholarship packet in the mail from Brooklyn offering $28,900/yr.
3/20- San Diego bumped my scholarship to full tuition + $5k housing. Sweeet.

4/02- Letter from Emory informing me I was declined any scholarship $$. Oh well. withdrawing shortly
4/14- In at Boston University!! And only about 5 months to the date that I sent in my application, sheesh!
And with that my cycle ends :) ::exhales::
4/23- priority watilist at Fordham, whatever that means.
4/26(ish)- I withdrew from Brooklyn weeks ago, but they keep sending me reminders about the deposit deadline and reserving my merit scholarship. Now they bumped my scholarship to 40,000/yr. Tempting, but I visited Cornell and my heart's set on Ithaca.
4/29- 10k/yr from BU. Only condition is good academic standing. I wasn't expecting anything this late. About to withdraw, it's just so hard to say goodbye to my initial first choice...
Cornell c/o 2011! Go Big Red (and Andy from the Office)! Good luck future applicants, hope the info helped!
sidenote: I finally get to put up my little 'A' for attending, woohoo!
