4/1--MERCER FOR ME! Cycle is over--see everyone in Macon in the fall!

4/1--Waitlisted at South Carolina.

3/30--Waitlisted at U of Richmond today. Small white envelope. Flattered, however, I'm turning in my seat deposit at Mercer tomorrow!

3/17--Rejected at Wake via snailmail. Thought I would get waitlisted because of my diversity statement, but alas.

2/12--Rejected at UGA. Whatever. They were rude on the phone anyway. Still would have been nice! Also, received an e-mail response from South Carolina saying that my application is being held over for a second review and that I should hear back in early March.

2/9--In at Samford via snail mail! Yay!

2/4--Status checker changed to "Decision Mailed" at Samford today. I'm crossing my fingers!

2/2--Status checker says "Administrative Review" at Wake Forest.

1/26--Went Under Review at Samford today--hoping for a speedy and positive result!

1/23--Preview Day at Mercer Law. I really enjoyed my afternoon there!

1/20--In at Mercer (my alma mater) via snailmail! Small white envelope. Happy Inauguration Day--I'm going to law school! My online status-checker still says "File is complete-ready for review," but I noticed in the corner that it said "Decision Letter Mailed 01-15-09." I didn't get it until today, though!

1/10--Getting anxious and cannot wait for admissions committees to begin meeting next week!

Thanks! I've been anxiously waiting and it's good to know I'm in somewhere! If not OK/TX, I'd like to stay in the south or southeast, so maybe I'll send one to S.Carolina for kicks. You from Georgia originally?

Congrats on Mercer! Did your online status checker change? Mine has said, "Application complete, ready for review" for some time now. I'm waiting to hear from them and Samford too.

A long time ago they said decisions would only take two to four weeks, but then they got backed up in admissions and I just got my acceptance a couple days ago.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. I was very familiar with the area and spend a lot of time in Birmingham, but fell in love with the school on my visit. I'm going to try and schedule a visit to sit in on a class soon. I plan on attending Preview at Mercer on 2/20.

Random question, but did you visit any of the campuses yet (specifically Richmond)? If so, any thoughts? Congrats on the Mercer/Samford acceptances, good luck with the rest of your cycle!

Enjoy your visit to Samford. If you have a chance, check out some of the areas surrounding the school. It's a great place! I'll be at Mercer on Friday at Open House and looking forward to visiting Macon.

Congratulations! I just visited Mercer's Accept Day this past weekend, and was completely suprised by how much I liked the school and the people. I have really been rethinking my decision on where to go to since I visited.

Great to hear about Mercer (congratulations). Question(s): With a 153 on LSAT why do you think you were rejected @ Wake? Is the entry that stiff or perhaps other factors involved here. How long did your file remain on Administrative Review? Thanks.
