**************************************************
1/12 - Done with most of my apps. I probable make it an even 40 by the end of the week, waiting on a couple more fee waivers. Hope this wait isn't as bad as the December lsat. Still debating on if i am going to take the February one even though i am already signed up.

1/18 - Officially done sending out applications. I ED to Georgetown, sent off to 3 more reaches Harvard, Duke and U of Chicago.

1/18 - The wait game begins, Hopefully status checkers can keep me a little busy in between class so I can take my off of this process. I'll be happy with any response just ready to get my cycle started.

1/18 - Under review at W&L, Akron, Chicago- Kent, and Ohio State, Hofstra, Seton Hall.

1/20 - Oh yea just got accepted to American via checker

1/24 - So this waiting game is getting annoying considering I am only waiting to hear from 16 school out of the 46 left. I going to wait before I withdraw from lower ranked school in order to help our future applicants, so lets see what happens.

1/27 - Rejected at Lewis and Clark, I kind of expect at least to be waitlisted but whatever, they basic said we love you as a person but hate your number as in the email they said they would love for me to apply as a transfer.

1/28 Accepted to Toledo

1/31 Great way to start the week just got into Akron via phone call, expected considering I attend the school.

Third complete at GULC got my fingers crossed!!!

2/3 Interesting day admission packet came in for Toledo, 22,000 per year, 2.5 gpa stip.

Waitlisted at Loyola Chicago.

2/10 Well my status checker when blank at hostra?????? wonder what that means. hopefully an acceptance with $$$$$$.

3/7 Reject at Maryland and Waitlist/withdrawal Golden Gate

3/8 Rejected by NYU, it was a long shot but one app closer to making a decision
- Finally complete at Fordham.

3/9 Decision rendered at USF, no email so its probably a rejection/waitlist
- Deferred at Chicago- Kent, after that I kindly sent them a withdrawal.

3/10 Decision rendered at Duke, its a very long shot so lets see what happens...........Rejection

3/12 Waitlisted at USF today, didn't quite see that coming

- 12,000 with 3.0 stip at NIU

3/17 What a day, beer and a letter from Pless

3/24 Decision finally render at Loyola LA. Probably a rejection/waitlist
- Rejected at U of Chicago. 14 more school then my cycle is finally over.
- What a good day 16,000 grant money at American.

3/25 Started focusing on my decision so, I called ONU and asked about financials because I haven't heard anything yet. They said it was in the mail but i got 12,000 in scholly money and 20,000 in grant money

3/28 Rejected from WUSTL today, hopefully the rest come in this week.!!!!

3/29 Rejected via checker from Cornell

4/1 Decision at Arizona, either a wait list or an acceptance. 2 weeks till decision time.

Yeah, go ahead and take the Feb. LSAT. It can't hurt you at this point, and if you jump up it can only help you. I have a feeling that it will have more impact for next cycle if you choose not to go to the schools you get into this cycle.

  • Wednesday, January 19 2011 at 10:32 AM

Thanks for the kind words. I also majored in psychology. I wish you good luck on your cycle as well and I actually think you will far off better than me because your LSAT score is higher than mine, and most schools would rather admit someone with a better LSAT score and lower GPA. We are applying to a lot of the schools so I will be watching your profile! I hope you receive some acceptances into your reach schools!!!

  • Friday, February 04 2011 at 08:55 AM

Congrats on American, but make sure to keep your eyes on the prize! Good luck this weekend on your retake, but keep in mind that if you can break 160, you could move much much higher up in the rankings by reapplying next year. At the very least, American should offer you nothing short of a 1/2 tuition scholly!

You're right good things do come to people who wait. So I'm waiting on my acceptances lol. It looks like your cycle is shaping up nicely. Where do u see yourself attending next year?

- NiceWithTheJD
  • re:wondering
  • Wednesday, February 09 2011 at 11:34 AM

I think for each school it really just depends on your numbers and softs, and what that school in particular really stresses. Which schools haven't you received a response from that others have? I still haven't heard from American. I guess they don't know what to do with my file lol.

- NiceWithTheJD
  • Wednesday, February 09 2011 at 10:41 PM

- letsgo206
  • Friday, February 11 2011 at 11:35 AM

You should be hearing from GULC soon, and I'm actually surprised that you haven't heard anything from Hofstra. P.S. I would prefer the Mid-Atlantic region, but the Midwest and Cali would be okay too!

The thing I love about this profile is: 1. You're already into a great school and 2. There is still so much possibility. I hope you get into a few more scholys in which to negotiate with to get a nice boost from the school of choice.

  • Monday, February 21 2011 at 04:51 AM

I'm leaning towards northeastern. I love the campus, the co-op program, and the lack of cutthroat atmosphere. American is in a great location so you definitely cannot go wrong with that decision.

  • Tuesday, March 08 2011 at 05:45 PM

Don't worry too much about a tough week and a WL at a school you should have gotten into. Employers in the bay are still a bit skeptical of GG after their ABA issues of a few years ago even though they are fully accredited now. Plus you still have several schools in Cali still pending. Finally it's the end of mardi gras and tomorrow is ash wednesday. Therefore, drink with others tonight and by yourself tomorrow.

Thanks man, I'm on some preferred waitlist that says that it's a small list than the regular waitlist and most commonly, all applicants on it will get in. I'm crossing fingers and toes!!! It's weird how these things turn out huh...I don't even know how they wouldn't at least place you on the WL and then you get WL and accepted at places i get downright rejected...so unpredictable...

Not yet, still waiting on some more schools but we'll see. Arizona let me via snail mail, but on the status checker, you'll see a congratulations if you're accepted and a simple decision made if you're WL/rejected.

Well you have the ability to crack into the top tier, but do you have the time to waste a year? Getting a higher score will open up plenty of new possibilities and will ensure more scholarship money. If waiting another year isn't that bad of an option improving your lsat even 5 points will probably get into into the top 25. I'd guess even the top 20 would be possible.

haha i've actually been weeding out my profile so that I only have options that I'm actually considering. I deleted all of my rejections too. Selfish I know...

Thanks for the advice. I am still considering just makeing the deposit at CWRU, and if worst case scenario I don't get off of the wait lists from the schools of my choice I can apply as a transfer student. I have done the LOCI, and visited the schools of my top choice, I will be checking in with them now at least bi-weekly now. So that they can remember me lol!

Hey, I got in Howard yesterday. Looks like our schools are in the same area, maybe I'll run into you at some point. Later boss and congrats again on your cycle.

Nothing besides being pulled off of Pitts wait list. How about yourself?

Usually when schools ask you how interested you still are you are at the top of there list and they are thinking of selecting you. So that's a good thing from GW. I think I'm also pretty set on CWRU. It's getting pretty late now in the summer and I have to start finalizing things.

Hi! How is your first year going at American? I think that is the school I'll be going to, but I would love to hear a little but about your experience :).

  • Thanks for posting

Hey, man: Thank you for posting your numbers. Our GPAs are identical, so I was wondering if your scholarship to American was tied to your service (thank you, by the way) to our country, i.e., national guard, rotc, etc. -Ricky
