Pacific - 1/28 Denied by snail mail, pretty suprised, thought i had the numbers.

Washburn - 1/22 Acceptence by snail mail, small white envelope

I sent out my apps to LC and Marquette around mid-November and went complete by the end of November - good luck on your cycle!

I'm still having trouble seeing how McGeorge rejected you. Did you simply send the application in without an essay? Why do you think they rejected you?

  • McGeorge Rejection

I just reviewed a copy of my McGeorge application on LSAC and it looks like I dotted all my i's, I really don't know why they rejected me, maybe they were yield protecting or dinged me because of GPA, or maybe they logged onto LSN when I had made the mistake of listing my school preferences and saw they were near the bottom. Who knows??

I should come clean that I am not an Alaskan, but LSN seems to think that I should be. I do have a sister in Alaska though and am on my way there for a visit in two weeks. I have a good friend who goes to Hamline and has really enjoyed it. The main reason I applied was so that I could keep my job and go to law school on the weekends if it was necessary that I do so, because I wasn't sure about a lot of things when I started this process. I just got accepted at UMN though, so I will likely be headed there in the fall. I have posted a few things on LSD about Hamline if you want to check my comments there, I post under "zardoz."
