11/15 All applications are in.
11/18 Decided to apply to University of Illinois College of Law
11/18 Got into Georgia today!!!! I'm glad for the great start.
12/03 My Georgetown Status Checker changed to Decision today, so the wait begins...
!2/06 Well, I was deferred at Georgetown, that's at least better than a rejection, I'll keep hope alive.
12/10 Got into American today. Big package with a lot of info, very excited.
12/11 God is good. I wake up and the first thing I see is a new email from Fordham, saying that I have been accepted. Needless to say, its been an amazing 24 hours.
Florida State's status checker just went to "decision mailed". I hope all the other decisions come this rapidly in bunches.
12/12 University of Florida's status checker has changed to "decision letter in transit". I hope its all good news.
Received a phone call from Florida State, telling me I was accepted.
12/14 Got Accepted to Florida. For some reason, didn't check the mail yesterday, did today.
12/15 Cornell status checker just updated to decision. The wait is gonna be killer.
Found out I was deferred to Cornell today. Still got a shot, which is always good.
1/04 Well, got both good news and bad news, as I arrived back from the holidays. Rejected from NYU, wasn't surprised, but received Merit aid from Fordham!
1/06 Got a fee waiver from Duke, so decided to apply.
1/13 Status Checker for Illinois says I'm on hold for second review, so gotta wait a little longer.
1/21 Another great day, another great acceptance. Got into WUSTL today and couldn't be more ecstatic.
Got a phone call from the Dean of Admissions at Emory, this day just can't get any better.
1/23 Got a fee waiver from UPenn, so whats $12 bucks.
Status Checker for Vanderbilt went to decision, my nerves will be killing me over the weekend.
1/27 Received a merit Scholarship from UF today. This makes the decision process harder
1/29 Got waitlisted at Vandy, sucks but could have been worst
2/2 Waitlisted at Columbia, good to know i'm still in the game
2/3 Went to Decision Mailed with Chicago, I would be extremely happy with anything other than a rejection
2/4 Received a merit Scholarship from FSU today. Can only thank God for his continued Blessings.
2/6 Got a weird email from Illinois, I guess I was waitlisted.
Went complete at Penn today.
2/7 Was placed on "Hold" at Chicago and given several instructions to supplement my file. I hope I can win 'em over.
2/13 Got into University North Carolina today, very excited!
2/14 Got Rejected from Georgetown today. Kinda makes the weekend suck now.
2/26 Got waitlisted from UVA today. Happy to hear something from them after 3 months of waiting.
3/2 Got Waitlisted from GWU, I need some better news soon, seriously.
3/10 UF increased their merit aid award today and removed any restrictions on it. I can only be thankful.
3/12 Currently in New York checking out Fordham, and really loving the city and school.
Day just got even better with a big scholarship from Washington St. Louis. Just when I thought, I knew where I was heading...
3/13 Waitlisted from Michigan today. It hurts, but its whatever at this point.
3/18 Waitlisted at Duke. No surprise here.
3/27 Put on Reserve @ Cornell.
3/29 Received a good amount of Merit aid from UNC. Received the email at 4 am, kinda strange.
4/1 Withdrew from WUSTL. Coming down to the wire.
4/4 Withdrew from Georgia.
4/10 Withdrew from American
4/14 Withdrew from UF
4/15 Deadline day, has come and gone
4/16 Placed the first deposit down for Fordham. Will still be holding out for these waitlists though.
4/17 Withdrew from UNC
4/19 Rejected from the CLEO summer program.
4/22 Went to Decision rendered for UPenn, not expecting much. Chicago went to Decision for 4/21. Hopefully something good.
4/26 Rejected from Penn and Chicago. A hard way to end a cycle I guess.
5/4 God is good!!! Just received the phone call from Michigan, accepting me into the Summer session.
My cycle is over and I will be withdrawing from everywhere else.
I'm a Wolverine!!!

We have nearly identical stats and it looks like we're applying to several of the same schools. Wishing you all the best this cycle!

  • similar schools
  • Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 08:49 AM

Hey! we are also applying to similar schools.. good luck this cycle! Do you have a top choice?

- soldiva
  • congrats!
  • Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 01:56 PM

Congrats on UGA acceptance! We have similar numbers and are both URM. I'm still waiting though...*crosses fingers* Good Luck with the other schools! Btw, do you go to UF? (I do, I just noticed you go to a public school in Florida)

- green918
  • Wednesday, November 19 2008 at 04:33 PM

Well I was hoping to hear from Florida State and UGA before Thanksgiving, but I'm starting to lose hope on that one, so I might add a few other schools to the list. Staying in Florida is appealing because it is so cheap! Do you have a #1 choice?

- green918
  • Emory
  • Friday, November 21 2008 at 06:57 AM

Hello, did Emory send you an email saying they received your application?

- vickitoria
  • Tuesday, November 25 2008 at 01:29 PM

I think I would choose Georgia if I got into all three, but it would be really hard to give up the in state tuition. I've been waiting for almost a month so I'm starting to get anxious!

- anonymous
  • good luck!
  • Tuesday, November 25 2008 at 04:57 PM

we have very similar numbers and applying to some of the same schools! i hope everything works out well for you!

  • u of G
  • Monday, December 01 2008 at 10:57 AM

COngratss.. American just sent me a thick package today letting me know i was in. Im just glad im going to law school next year!! Ideally, what choice is U of G.. top one?

- soldiva
  • UGA
  • Wednesday, December 03 2008 at 03:56 AM

Congrats on UGA. It looks like the first acceptance for the both of us.

- macjags07
  • Thursday, December 04 2008 at 02:56 AM

Looks like we have some similar indexes at schools. Goodluck with everything. Where did you go to school in FL? What are your top choice schools?

  • Georgetown...
  • Saturday, December 06 2008 at 12:56 PM

Sighs, looks like we've both been deferred at Georgetown. In fact, right now we have the exact same news, in at UGA, deferred at Georgetown. And the wait continues...yes, we'll have to keep hope alive. LOL.

- macjags07
  • Top choice
  • Sunday, December 07 2008 at 06:50 AM

I didn't really have a top choice going into the cycle b/c I was really upset about my lsat score. After doing more research, I'm really looking into going to UGA. I even found a firm I really like in ATL and would like to try to get a summer associate position at and they take numerous students from UGA.

- starrykc16
  • LOL...
  • Sunday, December 07 2008 at 10:25 AM

It's the truth though. Same decisions so far = twins. We'll get through.

- macjags07
  • Sunday, December 07 2008 at 08:12 PM

Thanks! I'm sure yours will be coming shortly. I'm still jealous of your uga acceptance though ;-)

- green918
  • Monday, December 08 2008 at 02:35 AM

I am a Gator. My top choices/dreams are Northwestern, Cornell and UPenn. If none of those work out, I will most likely end up at UGA over UF.

- fergi85
  • Congrats
  • Monday, December 08 2008 at 05:34 AM

Congrats on UGA!! And I'll be sending you and macjags positive thoughts on Georgetown :)

And thanks, I need all the positivity I can get too :) Waiting is the worst...

Forham! I am hoping for similar results, good luck with the rest of your cycle.

  • Congrats on ....
  • Sunday, December 14 2008 at 03:34 PM

Fordham!!! Your acceptances are really flowing in right now. I'm sure they'll keep rolling in.

- macjags07
  • Sunday, December 14 2008 at 04:24 PM

Now I'm jealous of two schools! lol Congrats on FSU! And I was right about your UF acceptance being on the way. Is Florida up for consideration for you? I bet that in state tuition is looking even more enticing now that you've been accepted.

- green918
  • Good Luck!
  • Monday, December 15 2008 at 02:10 AM

on Cornell, I went to decision 12/09!

- starrykc16
  • Cornell...
  • Monday, December 15 2008 at 03:52 AM

I'm crossing my fingers for you on your decision at Cornell.

- macjags07
  • FSU...
  • Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:24 AM

Did Florida State's status checker go from "application complete" to "decision mailed" or did it have an intermediate status like "file in review"?

- SHSU2008grad

- FAMU03
  • LMAO...
  • Wednesday, January 21 2009 at 12:00 PM

This is hilarious because that's beginning to seem like a real possibility. I see we have 5 schools in common that we've yet to hear from. If we hear at the same time, I'm officially convinced that's the case!!

- macjags07
  • Congrats...
  • Wednesday, January 21 2009 at 12:03 PM

on all your acceptances...I'm still waiting to hear back from a lot of those schools...

  • Friday, January 23 2009 at 06:51 AM

I went decision today too...I'll cross my fingers for the both of us (though hopefully i'll get my letter today because I'm at Vandy undergrad) I don't think I'd make it thru the weekend wondering...

- B5A2D1
  • hey there
  • Sunday, January 25 2009 at 10:21 AM

Greetings. First off, I just wanted to congratulate you. I am impressed by your acceptances and accomplishments! I am a fellow Univ of Florida hopeful and would love to be in your shoes!!! By no means did I score as well as you did on the LSAT but I have spoken to UF law in order to make my application stronger. If you don't mind sharing what kind of topic you used for your PS i would really appreciate it. The law school has recommended that I portray my academic credentials as best as possible but i still have doubts on what my atual chances are. I also found out that this year's admission class will consist of 300 instead of 400. :( any advise would really help me out. Thanks in advance for your time and best wishes for therest of the cycle.

  • Is it hard to make a decision?
  • Monday, February 16 2009 at 03:17 PM

I have been accepted to a lot of the same schools that you have been accepted to. I am having a hard time deciding on which school to choose. Do you have the same problem?

  • Friday, April 10 2009 at 04:28 PM

Congrats on all your acceptances, esp. UNC since that's where I'll be in the Fall (99.5% sure.) I went to UNC for undergrad and it's an awesome school. Matter of fact, I was on Franklin Street Monday night after we won the NCAA title :) Good Luck!
