8-06-08 My cycle is finally done. I got the call today from OU admitting me off the waitlist. Life is good. I obviously accepted.

7-24-08 Visited fayetteville today and toured the campus with Dean Miller. Great guy that is genuinely excited about being at the school. As I was leaving campus the Dean at UMKC called and offered me a spot off of the waitlist. I declined but thanked her. Withdrew from OCU today as well.
Looks like Arkansas for me, that is until OU calls me which I suspect will be the first day of classes...

7-02-08 The suspense of being on the waitlist at OU is driving me crazy.

5-23-08 Withdrew from St. Thomas because of Arkansas acceptance. Hopes this opens up a spot for someone! Now if some OU people would just withdraw and open up a spot for me...

5-23-08 Phone call and acceptance from Dean at Arkansas!!! Very nice man that commented on my PS which I thought was nice. Good way to start the holiday weekend.

5-1-08 Waitlisted at UMKC... seriously? I understand yield protection and state school requirements but #'s are #'s... This is actually one of my top 4 schools and here I am on another waitlist. Will get a LOCI drafted up sometime this weekend and send it their way.

4-30-08 UH OHH! Things just got interesting. I got a great big packet of info and a handwritten note from the University of St. Thomas Dean with $15K to sweeten the deal. St. Thomas is a great school and the $$ is a nice surprise.

4-30-08 File is complete at OU with additional information.

4-22-08 Sent a LOCI and two more LORs to OU today. fingers are crossed...

4-18-08 Waitlisted at OU!!!!!!! Being waitlisted is like getting a kiss on the check at the end of a first date... it isn't a generic hug and you didn't get lucky but it feels good to not be rejected! I am actually ecstatic about this since OU is my #1 choice. I really did need this bit of good news today...

4-17-08 UGH!!! The suspense is killing me...

4-10-08 I find it strange that 4 of my top 5 schools have not yet made a decision on my file. I am starting to get a bit nervous.

4-9-08 not surprised by UALR rejection as they wanted a "why are you interested in UALR?" from me and I requested that my file be reviewed as is. I typed up 4 additional pages to The University of Arkansas when they requested it though because its my #2 choice...

6-for-6!!!! Come on OU, don't let me down...

4-7-08 Email acceptance from Cal Western. Letter to arrive in 7-10 days. No scholarship info...
Sent my additional info to Arkansas today.

4-5-08 Acceptance and $30k scholarship from Florida Coastal.

4-2-08 Letter from U of Arkansas wanting more information about my application... good news. This is one of my top 2 schools and I didn't get automatically rejected. Going to admitted students dinner thursday night at OKCU and then pre-law day on Friday. Fun stuff...

3-31-08 Email from OKCU about pre-law day this friday...called school to determine status and was told over the phone letter was on its way with acceptance and $48,000 scholarship!!! 4-for-4 so far.... my fingers are crossed!

3-31-08 Letter from St. Mary's with acceptance.

3-30-08 Went to Tulsa yesterday for Pre-law day. Impressed by the new facilities and motivation to better the school. Met some great people and came away with a positive attitude.

3-27-08 Tulsa says yes. Going to ASD this weekend to check the place out. Have heard both good and mediocre reports about the school overall. Want to see for myself. $24,000 scholarship as well.

3-25-08 Cal Western and Florida Coastal have requested my file...

3-24-08 First Acceptance!!! St. Thomas in beautiful Miami says come on down and here's $54,000 reasons why Miami is better than OKC!!!! First acceptance and $54k is a nice way to start my cycle!!! Yeah me!

3-20-08 Email from Tulsa inviting me to open house on the 28th and
letting me know to expect letter from the Dean early next
week. Good news for me!

3-19-08 Everyone except for Cal Western and Florida Coastal have
requested my file. Arkansas and St. Mary's finally did so today.

3-09-08 Finally got all my apps done and sent!

Sadly, nothing from OU yet. OU and Baylor are my top choices, but at least I know TU has accepted me and has offered some $$$$!! How about you?

I called them and asked. I told them that I had to make a decision at TU by May 7th and knew that I wouldnt' get my letter from them before then. She told me over the phone that I was accepted.
