Michigan ASW 3/8-3/10
-I had an amazing time at Michigan! I will say that it helped that I had built in friends since there were SO many LSDers there--but that's not what made it great. The school is wonderful and I could honestly see myself there for 3 years. The Law Quad is beautiful and looks like Hogwarts. The reading room is like something out of an old art book of italian works of art. The professors really went out of their way to meet us and provide answers to any questions that we had. The students were the best part though. It didn't feel like an act--they all loved their school and had no regrets. Mock class and the real class were great, and while I was confused at a lot of moments, I can see that with enough effort, one should really do well (unless the curve shits on you, lol)

While I liked Ann Arbor, I can see how, for me, it would get old in a short amount of time. The weather was extremely nice for this time of year, but my friend who is there for his PhD warned me not to be fooled. Also, it seemed that Columbia got a lot of shit, though mainly subliminally. Also, what many tout as a positive, the fact that students gravitate towards the school and stick together and probably couldn't in a place like NYC, is not a positive nor negative to me.

UVA ASW 3/16
-While I was happy about my UVa acceptance, it never got the excitement and anticipation that Michigan got. That all changed with this ASW. I LOVED the school. THe campus was BEAUTIFUL. The grounds were green and well kept--and let me tell you, I'm not a big grass/foliage person! The building was modern, but still had beautiful woodwork and columns and the like. There were many nooks that the students could study in, so not to be confined to the library.

I loved the fact that the law campus is separate from the ug campus. While that may hinder me taking part in some special ug symposia, I appreciate the fact that I wouldn't have to deal with drunk undergrads.

I have some misgivings about Charlottesville though. Supposedly, I didn't really see the metropolitan areas of it. I'd defintely need a car (and a license as well!). Also, as a person of color, I've heard some things that concern me as well.

On the whole, I had a wonderful visit! UVa is definitely a contender for 2010.

Fordham ASD 3/24
-Ok, so I mainly went to visit Fordham bc a)I wanted to meet some more LSDers and b)I live close by.

I had a good time at Fordham. I think that the facilities could definitely use an update. I got the idea from my own visuals as well as the current students that the school is definitely cramped. Their biggest auditorium cannot even fit the entire student body. The library was VERY nice though.

I got the feeling that the profs and the admins were VERY enthusiatic about Fordham. They seemed as if they truly wanted their studetns to achieve success. It seems that the Fordham network is real and very prominent in NYC.

I think Fordham is a good way to go if you want to work in NYC, especially over Brooklyn and Cardozo. Thus, I will be withdrawing (again) shortly so that people can have a shot. Good luck!

Columbia ASW 3/28-3/29
-So I'm so in love with CLS...I'm 99% sure I will be there in the fall. I had a wonderful time with everyone I met. Let me just say that the admissions staff is fucking cool as hell!!! They did karaoke with us at the BLSA event and everything. Good times.

CLS is not full of mean gunner douches. I never subsribed to the idea in the first place bc I wanted to give the school a fair chance. I loved what I saw. Intelligent people who were fun and cool. Everyone was nice and super friendly and they seemed truly happy.

The law school is very modern with lots of glass rooms and everything. The biggest lecture room actually has a mic at every other seat. That's kinda scary but I'm sure I'll get over it. The library isn't a beautiful as Mich's but I don't plan to spend a lot of time there anyway. Another good thing isthat the housing is really nice and and there are a lot of options--and it's also guaranteed for all 3 yrs.

Overall, I think it's quite possible that I'll be in the CLS Class of 2010. :-)

University of Chicago ASW 4/12-4/14
-Ok so I missed day 1 because I got admitted so late and it was short notice for my job. So I arrived in Chicago at 8:20am Friday morning.

UofChi is an AMAZING place. So much so that I'm conficted in my decision. A couple of weeks ago I was set on CLS 2010, now I have more thinking and stressing to do.

I don't know why people say that the law school is ugly. Maybe I'm not hard to please or don't possess a discerning eye, but the place wasn't ugly. They have this huge fountain at the front of the quadrangle that is a nice eye opener. The interior of the law school is beautiful and weird pieces of artwork all about. Theclassrooms were nice, modern, and have comfy chairs (better that the one's CLS has that are attached to the desks). The library is undergoing construction but that will be mostly done by the time school starts in the fall.

I can tell that the profs are amazing! They seem really genuine and know all of their students by first and last name. Dean Levmore is funny as hell too--and actually teaches first year classes. He did a good job to dispel the conservative slant rumor and fears about law and econ based classes (though, to be sure, law and econ do permiate quite a few of the classes--but you won't suffer if you've never taken an econ class, bc thatwas something I worried about).

Overall, very conflicted. Money is a wash--I need to make a decision soon. I wonder about the quarter system and small class size--I can find pluses and minuses for both. Also, quarters would be nicer if they had a wider course selection which is a negative for me. Sigh.

CLS 2010 or Chicago 2010?

11/20/06
-Complete at Penn via email.
-Waiver from Emory received in the mail. Dunno whether I'm going to apply yet, though I probably will. (LOL yea I applied really fast didn't I?)

11/21/06

-Found out I was complete at GW after I emailed the admissions staff.

11/27/06

12/13/06
-Complete at Emory via email. Complete at ALL of my schools.

12/14/06

.........................................
-now that the excitement has worn off *grin*, I'm so happy about my Michigan acceptance. It's a great way to start off the cycle, a t10 at that! Received a welcome letter with a personalized note at the bottom from Dean Zearfoss; access to the admitted students site; a cd-rom; and a cool blue Mich folder. I know for sure now that I'm going to ls next fall!

(btw, for those who may ask, I did write the "Why Michigan" essay)

12/21/06
-I'm happy for all of the new Penn admits...but...I'm a bit jealous. I really hope that I get in, as it is one of my top choices---TOP! I would love to have the choice between Mich and Penn.

12/26/06
-In at Vandy via snail mail! My mom read the letter to me. Came in a thin envelope. Letter dated 12/20/06

1/3/07
-Waiting for [hopefully] good news from PENN, UVa, and NU. For some reason, I feel like Duke and GULC are going to ding me in the near future.

1/8/07
-Still waiting...it's been really quiet. I hope all of the bad news doesn't come at once :-/

1/12/07
-In at ND via email from Heather Moriconi! Said that acceptance package would be in the mail, but that she wanted to give me the news as soon as possible). $$ included in email.

1/16/07
-In at Emory via snail mail!!! Letter dated 1/4/07.

1/21/07
-I'm hoping and praying that I will be accepted to UVa and Penn. It would really bother me if I don't get into both, especially Penn. Sigh. Praying for good news...

1/22/07
-In at WUSTL via email!! Said that official acceptance package will come in about a week or so, and that I should be hearing from their scholarship committee in Feb. Excellent!

1/23/07
-So, so far I'm in at 5 excellent places (and 1 of my top choices to boot). Yet, I have a feeling of dread that my luck will soon run out--especially because I mainly have the t14 left to hear back from. Sigh...I hope my "luck" extends to at least Penn, UVa, and NU. :-(

1/29/07
-First ding from Northwestern via status check. It sucks but I'll get over it.

1/30/07
-Decided to withdraw from Fordham. There's no need to keep it up there (especially since they are taking forever). I wouldn't go to Fordham over any of my other choices.

2/2/07
-Waitlisted @ Penn via email. Kinda down about it and
wish they would have just rejected me outright. Sigh.

2/5/07
-Sent confirmation of me staying on Penn wl.
-My UVa application has gone to decision via UVa status checker. Sigh. I hope it's good news.

2/8/07
-IN AT UVa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm buggin out--this is great news considering the decisions I received last week. This has also made my decision that much harder: Mich versus UVa. But I'm happy to have the choice! Came in beige envelope, postmarked 2/5.
-Will be withdrawing from Emory in the upcoming days. Hopefully the spot will go to someone who really wants in!!
-WUSTL still hasn't sent my acceptance packagenor given me any info from their scholarship committee. I'm going to w/d, but not before I know all of the information.

2/9/07
-Received official acceptancce letter from WUSTL; said that I am being considered for one of their Scholars in Law awards. WUSTL is still in play...

2/12/07
-Mailed in withdrawal for Emory

2/15/07
-In at Fordham via email. I withdrew via email on 1/30 and per the last Fordham status check update, my status read "withdrawn before decision"....so I'm in...for how long, I don't know. I guess I"ll see when Fordham decides to update their status checker again.
-Waiting [im]patiently for GULC, Duke, and GW
-My finaid info is in for Mich,UVa,Vandy,ND,WUSTL--so I'm waiting for responses from them in that regard.
-UM IN AT CLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'M TRIPPIN! In via email--a PDF of my acceptance letter was attached.

2/16/07
-Still in shock over CLS. I never thought I'd get in, thus me not telling anyone. I had actually forgotten about the application! Shocked.
-Will be withdrawing from more schools in the next few days.
(I'm not one to make rash decisions!)

2/19/07
-Received email confirmation from Penn about my spot on the WL. I don't know how long I'll stay on--I'm mainly worried about the possibility that I'd get in, and Penn would have no money left to give me for need based aid. Plus, the CLS admit makes me less upset about the wl lol.

2/23/07
-Withdrew from GW...no need to be potentially accepted just to w/d later. Good luck to those still waiting! Since I withdrew, I'm going to hide this app...I supposed I'll put it back later when all is said and done.

2/28/07
-Ok so I received my official Fordham acceptance (and per the status checker update today, I really am accecpted despite my email w/d). In, with $

3/1/07
-So I decided to check my email just now (9:27pm) and found an email from WUSTL. Scholars in Law Award--$$$

3/5/07
-Awarded a Dean's Scholarship from Vanderbilt!!! Plus, guranteed need based money for all 3 years. $$

3/14/07
-After 4+ months of waiting, I am finally at decision at GULC. Despite the luck I've had with UVa, Mich, and CLS, I have a strong suspicion that my decision is either a WL or Ding. It wouldn't hurt me too much, but I'd rather not get rejected again--it hurts too much.

3/15/07
-I'm at UVa now, so mom told me that i'm on the preferred wl for GULC. Obviously, I'm withdrawing. :-/

3/19/07
-mailing my ND withdrawal tomorrow....great school and the attention they have shown me and other admits has been great!. It's just not the school for me. Good luck to those trying to get in!

3/27/07
-WUSTL sent out a mass email to $$ recipients asking them whether they were going to accept it and if not to let them know. So, I just withdrew in my emailed reply. Great school though. Hopefully someone who is definitely going to WUSTL gets the $$.

3/30/07
-Went to CLS. Visit details in other section.
-Wondering what the hell is up with Duke? I expect a wl or ding at this point...after hearing reviews from others on LSD, I would have loved to get the opportunity to visit the school, but I guess I won't.
***************************************
-Got my UVa award :-)

4/4/07
-waitlisted at Duke. Not staying on. Cycle is over.
-withdrew from Vandy. It hurts.

4/5/07
-IN @ CHICAGO!!!!!!!!!! (this was my other hidden app, lol). Got call from Ann Perry a little after 5pm. Deferred after the 2/2 admit batch. I wrote the optional essay about parental responsibility for willful property damage committed by their children. I'm buggin out! Now my cycle is REALLY over!!
-Got $ from CLS. Decent amount.

4/8/07
-So I'll be going to Chi's ASW this weekend. It is now a battle to the death between Columbia and University of Chicago. I'm still leaning towards CLS, but this ASW at Chi could change EVERYTHING. We'll see.

4/9/07
-Received Chicago admit package. Excellent materials including binder, course catalog, graduate school info, etc. $ included :-)

4/10/07
-Fordham is out...and then there were 4

4/12/07
-Heading to Chicago tomorrow to visit UofChicago...hope my flight isn't cancelled because of the weather :-/

4/15/07
-Had a wonderful time at UofChi (remarks to the left)
-Will be withdrawing from Mich and UVa in the next couple of days.

4/22/07
-So my gut keeps telling me CLS so that's where I'll be in the fall!

4/23/07
-Paid $500 deposit for CLS online...it's official!
-Withdrew from the Penn waitlist...it's crazy how they were my #1 going in, mainly bc I never thought I'd get better than that, and they waitlisted me while I got into CLS and Chi. Admissions are crazy.

4/30/07
-Withdrew from Chicago--that was a tough one. So only CLS is in play and that's wehre I'll be and I'm very happy about that!! Good luck to those still waiting and to future applicants!

They took a long time on my report too . . . but, should they hold true to form, eventually you'll probably get some sort of e-mail notification from the university. I think it took over a week for me. I wouldn't worry overmuch :).

I found out I went complete at Duke through e-mail. It took over a month after I submitted my aplication. I don't know what took so long. But I am not really sure what my first choice is. I'm just waiting to see what will happen. Good luck with all your apps (and hopefully you'll get some good scholarship offers).

Thanks a lot for the encouragement. My only shortcoming right now is that my files wont be complete anywhere (except the two EA schools) for a couple weeks. I wish you the best of luck as well... keep me posted.

Pardon the ignorance but what is the Hamilton/which C school is CLS? As for Harvard I don't think I have much of a chance...someone just convinced me to apply to at least one of Harvard or Yale.

  • Thanks again
  • Friday, November 24 2006 at 11:51 AM

Will do...thanks so much for the advice....my only concern at this point is the lateness of my completed files (won't be for another week or two). On your end, what are your first choices?

- number2
  • good luck
  • Friday, November 24 2006 at 12:06 PM

Thanks so much again for the encouragement. You sound like you've done your homework and obviously have the URM/early app edge on a lot of applications so I'm sure you know to not entirely take your numbers at face value (whatever they may be). I'd say either Gtown, Columbia, Northwestern, Chicago or Mich are my top. Best of luck to you and plz do keep me posted.

  • Monday, December 04 2006 at 11:53 AM

Yep, in just a few short months we could be tearin' it up Ann Arbor style . . . whatever that is. :) Michigan definitely just keeps growing on me though, that's certain. It would be the shocker of the year for me if Columbia accepts me and I go to Michigan anyway, but it's becoming a scenario I have to consider. And, I guess the Stanford thing really was more weird than insulting - it just seemed so random.

  • Friday, December 22 2006 at 01:12 PM

That's a good question and I've been asking myself the same thing lately. I probably could have gotten into some great schools. But, honestly Fordham was my first choice and I didn't really strongly consider any other school. I just threw some safeties in there and prayed. But I'm really happy with how it turned out. Oooh and I think I know who you are from LSD. I'll keep checking back to see if I'm right =)

We are applying to a lot of the same schools. I'm very proud of you for your admittance at those two top schools! I hope you get into most, if not all, all your choices, especially Upenn. I applied to Upenn and I hope that I have a good chance there too My sister is a 3rd year there so maybe that'll help me a little. But good luck with the cycle and thanks for the encouraging words on my page!

Actually she liked it very much. The school opened a lot of doors for her career-wise. She got a job offer from one of the top law firms in New York. That's where she'll be working this fall after she takes the bar exam. The only thing she doesn't like about Penn is that it's such a small school. She wishes it was bigger with more law students. Otherwise, she has told me that she's enjoyed her experience at Penn. If I get in, I'll be extremely happy. I'm encouraged because when she applied, she had around the same LSAT score that I have. So you see, you and I still have some hope for a positive outcome.

I just need to research alumni and the career center, visit the school etc.. But I'm still waiting on so many schools. I can only afford to visit so many.

  • hi again!
  • Wednesday, February 14 2007 at 05:38 AM

well, my whole mentality going into this cycle was, if I do not get into a T14, then i'm just going to go to IU. My family, friends, and boyfriend are all here, and the only way I would move away from all of that is if i got into a T14. So that's why I'm really hoping for NU - the location is perfect (I live in indianapolis, so it's only like a 3 hour drive). But what about you?? you've got some VERY NICE acceptances..... Here's hoping I do get into NU b/c i really don't want to sit out another year. But i am definitely willing to do it if I must....I know I can get a higher lsat score....

We are just going withdrawal crazy! It's sorta of fun in the "Look, I don't need and I can reject you before you reject me" sorta way. Are you willing to give up CLS, Michigan, or UVA for some crazy money @ a lower ranked school? If so, you should definitely stay onboard. The binder was WUSTL was nice and I am going to consider (I wish they would talk to us about the money already). I think I'm not going to withdraw from anywhere else and consider all my choices equally because you just never know what could happen.

I actually decided at the last minute not to withdraw - meaning I did not send in the letter. I figure I need to wait until I have all information. I will still most likely withdraw though because I like Notre Dame, Wash U, Emory, and UIUC much better - not to mention USC, GWU, and UVA which I haven't heard from yet. Also, I am in at some more highly ranked schools that I like more because they are closer to my family and friends and my goal is to practice in Chicago or California. What attracts you to BC?

So, how was it at Michigan? Love it? I think I'm already in love... I've been checking out every single little thing on their website for weeks now. I'm such a nerd :P

  • Hey
  • Wednesday, March 14 2007 at 07:29 PM

I actually recently just turned 21...LOL i know still young. Anyway I know it wasn't just my age. I was just thinking that in combination with many other things probably had a different effect than I expected. But I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do yet. But law school during 1L is def not the place to be deciding whether or not you want to be there. I know that much. Have you decided where you are going to attend yet?

I guess I'll see you tomorrow morning at the ASW. I know who you are because I saw your pic on myspace. It's only a two hour drive for me since I'm local.

  • CLS cost of attendance
  • Thursday, March 15 2007 at 10:54 AM

Too me CLS is still a strong contender but the total cost of attendance of $61,000 is killing me. Its very very expensive compared to UVA and to NYU (where I am counting on getting a scholarship). Unfortunately I don't qualify for "need based" aide since I'm supposedly "too rich". It's news to me because I don't see the money. lol But yea, are you going to borrow a lot or do you have an extra $30,000 in the bank for CLS? lol

  • Hey!
  • Sunday, March 18 2007 at 07:31 PM

Congrats on all your success! I've decided maybe i'll get off a waitlist if Not I'm happy with what I got! I'll have a great career with these schools! I was wondering what you wore to accepted student weekends?

- mowillystyle
  • LOL!
  • Tuesday, March 20 2007 at 04:29 AM

Yes, another acceptance after a withdrawal. That seems like the only way I can get a positive decision. I'm not considering Loyola, it's just wayyyyyyyy too low on the totem pole in California. It was my super, super safety school. I'm expecting/hoping to get two more dings and two waitlists from my remaining options. They say this is the year of the waitlist, so what better time to be on them. And yeah, I'll see you Saturday. I'm excited and nervous about coming to NYC for the first time. Wouldn't it be funny if one of the admissions people or the dean said something to you about withdrawing and then coming to ASD? LOL!

Thanks for the comment, and I know you're totally right about missing out on top schools. But i do have my reasons (husband, baby, time factors, etc. . . ), all posted back on my page.

Nice admit list. What did you score on the LSAT?

- Harold

Your profile rocks. I especially like the bit about your ASWs. I was just in Michigan to view the campus and visit friends (psych phds). I loved the interaction the phd kids have, and they even hung out with the attorneys. Very interesting place. You'll be fine wherever you go, as you clearly are thinking about everything in the right way.

  • Fordham?
  • Monday, March 26 2007 at 03:19 AM

So, where's the Fordham ASD review? LOL! Have fun @ Columbia this week, I hope you like it and it makes your easier. I wish i would've been more fun after the ASD, but I was tired and kinda bummed out about Fordham. Normally, I'm a nut, but it was nice meeting you (you're so funny) and take care.

  • Hey!
  • Tuesday, March 27 2007 at 11:35 AM

So I noticed you withdrew from WashU today as well - did u find that email weird since it asked us about accepting the scholarship today instead of the April 1 date originally given? How's the decision making process going?

- jdesq2007
  • UVA
  • Tuesday, March 27 2007 at 08:36 PM

Yea, UVA is my number 1 choice right now. It's a good school and I think it'd be a great place to get my education. I'm most likely going to drive back next month to explore the town, tour the school, and look at apartments. I would love to have my pick among UVA, NYU, and Columbia and I pray for that. However, I'm slowly losing my patience and UVA is looking more attractive by the day.

How's your decision process going? All the sudden I stopped moping around and I'm excited I have options with $$ lol.. But I'm still hoping for last minute surprises.

  • NYC
  • Wednesday, March 28 2007 at 11:42 AM

I hope you enjoy your trip to NYC and especially to Columbia! I'm leaning towards USC myself - altho Notre Dame is still very much in the running. Best wishes!

  • UVa / CLS
  • Monday, April 02 2007 at 07:53 AM

Well... besides the fact that I hate Charlottesville... I've been thinking that CLShas a stronger network/foothold in NYC (and elsewhere)... and that not only helps on the post-grad front, but also during law school... it seems as if opportunities to explore and learn the law outside of the classroom and within the city are endless (as a 2L and 3L of course). But $57k less debt gauranteed is tempting, also we still haven't received need-based offerings... and the lower cost of living. I think my post grad employment prospects will be comparable and quality of life would be better with less debt... but I think I'd miss some law school years related qualitative factors by attending UVa. I'm really just hoping for a competitive need-based award from CLS so I can get out of this rut.

Sorry I stole your pen. Remind me to get you a new one next time we meet. Anyway, NYU was actually real cool too. Its gonna be a tough decision but I'm still leaning CLS. Did you apply to SEO? Anyway, Get at me sometime if you wanna talk about law skool.

  • Saturday, April 07 2007 at 06:18 AM

Congrats again on these amazing choices. So many T14's to choose from! Hope you love Chicago and they shower you with money.

- deeleigh
  • Ah, in that case
  • Monday, April 09 2007 at 09:28 AM

I hope you hate Chicago and they not only don't give you any money, but raise the tuition just for you. Seriously, I don't think you can go wrong with either of those schools.

- deeleigh
  • Thanks!
  • Wednesday, April 11 2007 at 12:38 PM

Are you leaning toward Columbia over Chicago at this point? I think my acceptance should probably seal the deal for you ;) CLS '10 woot!

Thanks for the kind words. I've decided to sign up for Testmasters and take the LSAT again in the fall. And I found out today that I got accepted to a program to teach English in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for a year, so this off year won't be a total waste. And when did you get into Chicago? Where have I been? LOL. Good luck with your decision, you can't really go wrong.

Thanks for posting your review on Chicago. It sounds like you have a touch choice. Luckily, you can't go wrong with either. I'd love to see you at U of C in the fall, but do what you do. Enjoy the back-and-forth!
