Additional info & updates

Well I'm 3 out of 4 so far!!! Not a bad start, even though I know realistically the no's are coming haha...

12/8-I'm starting to wonder if some of these schools are ever going to get back to me...

12/15-I'm in "Final Review" at Vermont, and in review at Valpo...most of the other schools haven't updated my status. At this point, it's a waiting game.

12/16-rejected by New York Law School via status checker...as if I could really afford to live and go to school there anyway. Not surprised or that upset.

12/22-still waiting...I'm resigned to the fact that I probably wont hear from anyone this close to the holidays.

12/31-everyone have a safe and happy new years!!! I hope we all get into the schools we want in 2011!!

1/7-waitlisted at my no. 1, Vermont. I'm happy it isn't a 'no'. Still in the game:).

1/15-anyone else out there as tired of waiting on this stuff as I am...this process is exhausting.

1/21-waitlisted at Valpo Law...once again, better than a no, but still a bit disappointing.

1/27-waitlisted at Oklahoma City, not gonna lie I find that alittle surprising...also updated on St. Thomas status checker that a decision has been mailed (keeping fingers crossed).

2/7-got in at Mississippi College!! Pretty excited, got a very nice personal message back from the dean that I really appreciated...definitely not a bad fallback option:).

2/15-got into WNEC!!! Pretty excited as it was one of my early favorites for their human interest focus. Definitely my top choice to this point:).

5/19-in at Vermont, my number 1!!!! Now, I'm really at a crossroads, it's either go to the place thats closer to family (Valparaiso) or go to the place I really wanted to go to all along...decisions, decisions.

5/25-definitely choosing Vermont. It's the best choice based on what I want to do with my legal career. Could not be happier with the way things have turned out. :)

Looking good at getting three acceptances so far! I hope you hear back from some T2 and T1 schools! Good luck. I'll be watching your profile.

Wow you applied at a lot of schools! I also applied to NYLS and St. Marys. Good luck to both of us!

I actually have the same question as Ronald. My file has been in review for 2 months now! Congrats btw!

Hey man, i went part time from the start because it's slightly less expensive upfront and lets face it's chicago is an expensive place to live(did the same thing for NYLS too). I got status change on friday the 26th of November, and didn't get the acceptance letter until friday the 3rd of December. I hope this helps, and good luck with your applications!

Thanks!

Hey thanks a lot man! Congrats to you too! I hope I hear from JMLS soon. What are your top choices?

Tuesday, August 03 2010 at 08:00 PM

My first choice is definitely VLS, because of their amazing environmental law program, and William Mitchell because of their public interest and awesome admissions staff. I like Loyola in New Orleans too, but really I'm pretty open. I consider this a brand new start, so I'm not that worried about moving into a new market. John Marshall was a surprise honestly. I didn't expect them to get back to me so quickly, but I'm sure they'll get back to you soon. Did you apply for full time or part time?

I applied for PT for the same reasons as you-Chicago is an expensive places to live and I'd have to work and go to school. I've been in review for like 2.5 months now, I hope I hear soon! And yeah, I've heard some great things about Vermont. I'm actually only a couple hours from there and it's a in a really cool area if you're into outdoorsy stuff. And it's not too far from Burlington, VT, which is a nice city. Have you ever visited VT?

Tuesday, August 03 2010 at 08:00 PM

I have, I really liked it, and I hear the atmosphere at the school is like no other in regards to being laid back and student centered. Hang in there with JMLS, I'm sure you'll get in, this time of the year I think all of the schools are taking their sweet time.

Congrats!
