UCLA, you're kiiiiiillllling me! why aren't u requesting my report? all you have to do is say "dear lsac, send me cross's report. thanks." :(
: UCLA requested on 01/05/07 :)
01/08/07 - Complete at UMich (e-mail - in it was my ID for UMich's online status checker). Also, note that UMich sends out complete letters via snail-mail in a thin, white envelope.
01/09/07 - Complete at Columbia (e-mail). They also have an online status check - though I've heard that it is frequently delayed.
01/11/07 - Complete at Duke (e-mail)
** 01/18/07 - Accepted to CORNELL! (e-mail, followed by a big, white packet 4 days later)
Note: The Cornell online status checker was delayed. The status did not turn to "Decision" until more than a day after I received the e-mail.
01/22/07 - Complete at Northwestern (online status check) AND Complete at Boston College (e-mail)
01/25/07 - Complete at UChicago (e-mail)
** 01/29/07 - Deferred ("On Hold") at Northwestern (e-mail telling me to check the online status checker). I plan to continue this application.
01/30/07 - Complete at NYU (e-mail)
02/09/07 - The online status checker for UMich says "Decision." I should be receiving a written decision in 10-14 days.
** 02/15/07 - Waitlisted at Duke (e-mail). I'm really sad b/c I did every additional statement (and more!). Still waiting on Mich, but not getting my hopes up.
02/16/07 - Complete at Fordham
02/19/07 - Let the super-freaking out begin! :P According to past cycles on LSN, acceptances (not wl/accept or def/accept) at the top law schools are pretty rare after February (for those who applied before the end of December). Dear law schools, please, please send some love my way!
** 02/21/07 - It's been 12 days since I saw the "Decision" notice on the Michigan online status checker, so I called the admissions office and was told that I am denied. The convo was SO awkward. The lady I talked to was so uncomfortable and apologetic. I was just like "it's fine, it's fine!" b/c I had prepared for it. Oh well!
Oh look!! First 4 decisions: one of each! Hmm, I guess it's not that funny considering I only care about getting 1 decision in particular. :)
Yeah, so I hit a realllllly bad wave of rejections. I'll just do a summary rather than list each one out (too painful).
Columbia, Georgetown, NYU: all rejections via thin, regular-sized envelopes. I never checked Columbia's status checker, but Gtown's online status checker did inform me that they had reached a decision on 2/23.
Penn: i was notified that i have been put on the waitlist via an e-mail. i immediately accepted.
** 03/02/07 - Rejected from Notre Dame. wtf?! i did NOT expect that one. i wonder what made them hate me? (thin, white envelope)
** 03/12/07 - Accepted to Fordham via. I got a fat scholarship, so I will most likely be headed there!
** 03/16/07 - Rejected from Chicago (thin reg-sized envelope)
** 03/19/07 - Priority Waitlist at BC (thin envelope). WTF. I am now convinced that I must have accidentally said I kick puppies or something like that in my applications. :( I really don't know what happened. I had a million proofreaders comb through my app essays. Oh well. Plan to withdraw.
04/08/07 - still waiting for UCLA. most of the ppl on lsn w/ my scores have been waitlisted, so i'm not really optimistic. if i do happen to get in, i would seriously, seriously consider it.
04/17/07 - stiiiiilll waiting for UCLA. i've pretty much ruled it out now since i'm getting scholarships elsewhere
** 4/25/07 - Waitlisted at UCLA via snail mail; will withdraw
I think I need to retake the LSAT and try again next year..
