ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

2/7/11 - In at DePaul! Awaiting scholarship in the mail.

1/23/12 - "Held" at U of I. I take that this is a wait-list. I'm actually happy. I will be submitting a LOCI absolutely begging to be accepted.

1/31/12 - Accepted at MSU with 75% tuition scholarship! I did not expect this after being held.

2/2/12 - Emailed JMLS asking for a more "competitive" offer last night. Woke up to an email increasing scholarship to $30,000 a year. I will be attempting to negotiate for more, perhaps after I visit.

2/8/12 - "Preliminary Wait-list" at Iowa, better than a rejection I suppose. Realistically, paying sticker here OOS would be suicidal, further reinforcing my decision to take a year off. Rejected at Marquette. Whatever.

2/20/12 - Email from Wisconsin informing me I've been wait-listed. Again, I expected worse so this isn't necessarily bad. Will submit LOCI as email requested. Apparently Big Ten schools like to wait-list me, hopefully Illinois or Ohio State pulls through.

2/24/12: Sent LOCI's to Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois.

3/19/12 - Officially waitlisted at Illinois. Will definitely try to ride this waitlist out. My cycle is officially over!

3/21/12 - Withdrew from DePaul, Denver, and Kent. Sent email asking for more money for SLU, which resulted in an increase from $10,000 / year to $17000 year!

4/13/12 - Officially waitlisted at Iowa, as opposed to remaining on the "preliminary waitlist." That's cool I guess?

4/23/12 - John Marshall sent email offering full scholarship even after i withdrew. This is seriously tempting. I have until April 30 to decide.

5/4/12 - Accepted internship. Given a non-binding deferral with scholarship by Michigan State. I will be retaking the LSAT in October. "May the 4th be with you."

5/21/12 - Accepted off the waitlist at Wisconsin Madison! However, I will be immediately withdrawing to give the seat to another student. Feels good to be accepted into a Tier One school!

Did you stop applying to schools (the ones listed at the top) or did you just not update? Just was curious. :)

I had the same mistake happen to me. Fortunately for me, I saw the correction email first.

Haha I have no idea where I will end up. I will obviously go to W&L, Tulane or Loyola LA if I get in somehow

Just tried to email you--got a "failure" notice. Thanks for the info on SIU. Is Illinois your top choice? Feel free to shoot me an email anytime. Congrats on all your acceptances!
