ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

*Update 1
Decided to make a new account for a new cycle.
I've studying hard to increase my score of 145. Harder than I studied the first time and I'm hoping for better results.
*Update 2
Took the LSAT Again and got the same score. Tried studying harder this time but got sick right before the test and had to man up and take it. Anyway going ahead and reapplying for this cycle. Hoping getting the apps out a little sooner will help. Last cycle I was sending a lot of apps at the deadline or close to it for a lot of schools.
*Update 3
Got another recommendation letter from a local campaign that I'm working with.Received an email from Washington and Lee saying I was waitlisted. More than I really expected, so it's something.
*Update 5
Decided to do the CLEO application for the summer. If I get accepted should help me with some of the schools I applied to, if I need it. Hopefully it will just be a safety net.
*Update 5
Rejected for Texas Tech. Not totally surprised. Still waiting for the other schools will probably start hearing from them in late Jan-February.
*Update 7
West Virginia is sent.
*Update 8
Gonzaga mailed their decision earlier last week. Since it's close to Christmas might take a little longer to get here. Thinking it's a rejection but I'll see. Marquette app will be sent out this week. Then prob. L&C and Willamette.And I got the letter from Gonzaga. Rejected.
*Update 9
Willamette, Seattle, and Marquette are sent.
*Update 10
Rejected at A&M. Also had an interview with CLEO about their six week summer program. They said I would know in a week if I was accepted.
*Update 11
All application are complete or in review except Seattle and Marquette. Still no word from CLEO but it's still early in the week.
*Update 12
Got accepted for CLEO's 6 wk summer program at ole miss. They can help with law school placement but it cost 2k. Don't know, might do it and if I get accepted somewhere by April to get a refund.
*Update 13
Seattle is complete and in review. Rejected from Pitt.
*Update 14
Informed all the CLEO member schools that I've been accepted into the summer program. Ole Miss and USC still not under review.
*Update 15
Being considered for ARC at Seattle U
*Update 16
Waitlisted at Marquette
*Update 17
Got a call from USC saying that my file wasn't in review yet because they are still going thru the higher applicants. Rejected WV via status checker.
*Update 18
Asked CLEO about placement assistance and this is what they told me. "You will work with the CLEO summer institute director and co-director to find a law school. The process is conducted during the summer institute. Our intent is to have you placed before the end of the institute. However, we will work with you afterwards, if you are not placed. There will be representatives from many law schools available for you to interview with."
*Update 19
Thought I was going to be rejected from Ole Miss. I am going to email the assistant dean and ask about how CLEO could help get me an acceptance.
*Update 20
Rejected for Seattle's ARC program.
*Update 21
Been keeping in touch with Marquette and Ole Miss admissions since I've been waitlisted. And informed the remaining schools about CLEO acceptance.
*Update 22
STCL and St Mary's want to hold my application until CLEO grades are released in late July. Both mentioned successful completion would make acceptance more likely, even in July.
*Update 23
Ok so the CLEO program is in a month. I've kept in contact with all schools except Washington and Lee simply because I've never been replied to when I've emailed. Have kept in contact with Ole Miss, Marquette, and Mercer. As I said in the previous update St Mary's and STCL want to hold the application until CLEO grades are released.
*Update 24
Finished CLEO and did very well. One of the last applications I sent out was to TSU while I was in the CLEO program. Had the grades from the program sent to TSU, St Mary's, South Texas, Ole Miss, Mercer, and Marquette. During the program Texas Tech also said they would reconsider my application based on my grades. TSU accepted prior to completion of the program.
*Update 25
I'm in at Ole Miss. I will be attending Ole Miss Law School this fall unless I get some money thrown my way from STCL or I get admitted at Texas Tech. I'm overjoyed!
*Update 26
I've withdrawn from all other schools. I will start at Ole Miss this fall. I'm ready to work hard and I'm glad I'll already be familiar with it due to the CLEO program. I started this last cycle and now I will finally be attending a law school.
*Update 27
Classes begin next week. Will continue to check on this every once and a while.
*Update 28
Finals start in two weeks. First semester of law school has been good. Good luck to everyone with their applications

Wondering if you've thought about applying to Washburn in Topeka, Kansas? I visited the school in October and it was really nice.

Try applying to little rock. Check out their numbers. You'd have a decent chance of acceptance.

Do you regret not going to Thurgood Marshall after being accepted there?

- HTexasGuy
  • Friday, February 20 2015 at 02:24 PM

@HTexasGuy No, not at all. There were aspects of the law school that made me hesitant to attend.

Good decision about Thurgood Marshall by the way. Question for you, who have you been speaking to at Ole Miss? the woman I have been "speaking" with responds with one word emails when I have sent similar messages to other schools and get a decent answer. Just curious becuase I have been waiting to here back from most of my schools for weeks now and getting pretty annoyed not knowing either way. Also how do you recieve most of your answers? Through status update or mail? thanks for your help!

Hey man congrats on your acceptances. Quick question: How did TSU notify you of your acceptance? I've been waiting forever. My portal status has been on "sent to committee" for weeks already.
