I got a 159 on the September LSAT. I retook in December and got a 162. It was much closer to my practice exams. I am hoping I didn't apply too late.
I submitted Denver's app on the 8th of January.
I submitted Colorado's app on the 10th of January.
1-18-08: I got an email that I was complete at Denver. I emailed them asking when I would know if I was complete and they replied that I was.
01-24-08: I got an email saying I was complete at the Univ of Colorado today. They also said to not call with questions regarding app status. I am kinda bummed, I wish they would at least let you check your status online.
01-28-08: Today Denver emailed me and said that I could check the status of my application online with an ID and password they gave me. I was disappointed when I logged in and it said, "under review". It also said in the email that final decisions would not be posted in the login area. Why would they give us a login if we can't view acceptances or rejections? I just want to know, sorry . . . I am venting! I want to know I got in somewhere.
01-31-08: I really want to make the choice between Denver and Colorado. I NEED AN ACCEPTANCE!
02-13-08: Accepted at Denver today via email! I called yesterday and the lady at the front desk said I would be notified by mail and it wouldn't be email. I got an email today saying I was accepted. I am quite excited. I really want to have to choose between Denver and Colorado though. I am praying for an acceptance from Colorado. I also am hoping for a scholarship from Denver.
02-15-08: I got my acceptance package from Denver. There was a paper that was dated the 12th with a scholarship offer for 15,000 a year. I am pretty excited about it.
3-18-08: I am dying for some news from Colorado. I want to get in badly. Just send me some word!
3-25-08: Right now I am slightly in favor of Colorado over Denver, but I am going out there this weekend and that will help me make a choice. The instate tuition at Colorado looks nice, but the scholarship and location of Denver are also nice. I am rather split, but Colorado seems like the wiser choice. We shall see though, I may not need to make the decision. There have been an awful lot of waitlists and rejections lately, so who knows.
Denied at CU: I am not extremely disappointed. I more just wanted to say that I had the option of both. I was split as to which school I wanted to attend, but my wife emphatically wanted to attend DU, so that makes that choice easier.
I also went to DU's Admitted Student Weekend and was impressed. I am excited to attend. My wife and I found a great apartment in Lonetree also.
4-18-08: DU emailed me today after I called them about a week ago. They decided to give me an additional 5,000K a year, making the total 20,000 dollars a year for tuition. This would have swayed me in Denver's favor regardless of the CU denial. I am pretty happy about this.
7-7-08: I looked online and I was given a 10,000 dollar grant, so I will pretty much not be paying for tuition for the first year (3,000). I am just extremely happy with how this turned out. It is a best case scenario!
