10.30.07 Letter from George Mason - due to volume of applicants don't expect decision until Jan 2008.

12.6.07 Application Status at Georgetown changed to Decision. I applied both FT & PT...No rejections on LSN so far. Here's to hoping I'm not the first!

12.10.07 Dinged at GULC. 0/1. Not how I would have liked to start this cycle, but this one was expected.

12.12.07 Accepted @ American via snail mail. Priority mail package

12.14.07 Accepted @ Miami via snail mail. Small envelope.


12.21.07 Acceptance Letter from UMD came in the mail. It was dated the same day I withdrew so it was probably already in the mail.

Since we're both from VA and share close-enough numbers, I thought I'd say hi. I'm curious to see if being an athlete helps with admissions.

Hey girl..thanks for the advice. i am contemplating UCLA. my problem is that i am trying to avoid coming back to the East Coast--which excludes alot of top notch schools, like GU or GW. Congrats on AU! That school is great..ive visited their campus, its really beautiful. the law school has a huge building that is 5 mins from the main is on the outskirts of DC, but still a great location. are u holding out for money?

- herogirl

  • Saturday, December 22 2007 at 08:15 PM

how did cornell inform you of the status (email or letter)? I just went "Decision" on their status checker but I'm stuck at home, so I'm hoping if it's a letter it didn't get sent to my school address... good luck at Penn!

  • Hey!
  • Monday, February 11 2008 at 12:35 PM

Hey Girl, thanks for letting me know about Penn. I wonder if I'll get in..If I do, I could definitely commit to a visit to find out more about it. To be honest, my older supervisor went to Penn for law school and she hated it. She also had a public interest background and had issues with the students at the school.. have you gone for the visit yet and done your deposit? I am going to NU on Feb. 28th and UIUC on March 7th..I wish I could post pics up on this is everything else? you're still in school, right?

  • Monday, February 11 2008 at 12:42 PM

btw, you were right about UMD and scholarship money..I called them to ask about scholarship money and they said I am not a candidate for any scholarships or merit aid. This is surprising considering that I have lived in MD for most of my life and I went to their undergrad. Needless to say, I wont be going back there for law school..

I chose Duke. In the end, it was just the better fit and alot cheaper!

- herogirl
  • how did they contact you?
  • Tuesday, December 09 2008 at 11:12 AM

Just curious... how did Penn and Cornell contact you? I got a phone call today from Minnesota and it kind of surprised me...I was expecting only snail mail. If you get a chance let me know how you heard! Thanks:)
