All scholarships are three year total.
Trans. from 2 yr. college. Married w/2 kids. High school drop out, obtained GED. Attended Florida Coastal last minute in '08 for 2 mos. before leaving due to financial situation. Horrible, horrible mistake and now have no idea how it may affect me this cycle. We'll see as the decisions start coming in. Worked full time through school. I would love to hear from anyone with advice/suggestions/comments. Really hoping for UF to take a former gator.
Update: Retook LSAT Oct-10. waiting for score.
Oct-29: Just received my retake LSAT score... 161. Up one point from my last test.... well that was definitely worth the studying, money, and stress. Ugh

1/26/11 - Accepted at ASU! Stoked!
1/27/11 - Depressing email from UF. What kinda school sends a "Prospective Student Newsletter" detailing the importance of applying to numerous schools? Like I said, depressing. At least email me with a waitlisted status or something.... sheeze
2/11/11- It's official. I have absolutely no self-control over checking my status checkers! Every minute that passes by is another minute in which one of my application status may have changed - however remote that possibility.
Lloyd: "What are my chances? 1 in 10? 1 in 100?"
Mary: "More like 1 in 1,000,000."
Lloyd: "So you're telling me there IS a chance! I read ya!"
-Dumb & Dumber
2/14/11- U of Arizona status checker updated to "Decision Issued"... tried using my email to logon to "New Admits" area on webpage... no dice. Guess that means no love from Tuscon. UA doesn't want to be my Valentine :(
2/15/11- Phone call from Tennessee today... said scholly info is on its way. Kinda sucks that I got the phone call one day after I WITHDREW :(
----update----- email asking if -given the new information- would I still like to withdraw? I answered "no". lol. Oops. Application anxiety has left me completely indecisive.
3/3/11 - "Knock, Knock."
"Yoohoo. Quit counting on UF to get back in a timely fashion!"
3/10/11- First rejection came from my home state of Hawai`i in the form of a rote email! Super strong ties to Hawai`i (Maui especially). Oh well. I believe that God has a plan that is greater than mine.
4/22/11- My last post:
The cycle has ended. I will be attending UF Law and couldn't be happier. It is OVER and I am THRILLED :-D
