12/2008 - Felt great about my LSAT retake but I ended up with the exact same score. I'm going to trust the LSAT gods, lower my standards a bit and just apply with what I have. I know it's good enough to get in to one of the schools I like, and I'm ready to go to school again!
1/14/09 - I submitted to Santa Clara, Loyola, and Case Western today as they're all due in February. Putting my free time at work to good use.
1/16/09 - I've officially sent out half of my apps. Nothing more I can do to them! I want to celebrate by reading one of the four books I bought today. Shall it be the James Joyce, Diana Gabaldon, Neil Gaiman, or Japanese katakana/hiragana mnemonic book?
1/21/09 - well I sent in more apps last night. I finally stopped being lazy and finished up the ones I could. I just have 4 schools left, and they're all ready to go.. just waiting on my second LOR to fax the letter in. He told me he wrote it Monday, so hopefulyl I'll get these done today or tomorrow.. if LSAC gets the letter!
1/29/09 - Finally sent in all of my applications. I also did a status checker run through and discovered a "Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of Baltimore School of Law!" message. So, I'm going to law school! SOMEWHERE!
2/16/09 - Got my acceptance package and 12/k (conditional) a year from UOP. I called UBalt today and they confirmed they would not be offering any type of scholarship which surprised and disappointed me. Ah well. Withdrawal incoming. Oh, and I just got accepted to Penn State through e-mail. yaaaaaaay
2/18/09 - I noticed my status checker with SCU is 'decision mailed'. Today at work, I got a phone call from the head of the IP department at DePaul congratulating me on my acceptance and letting me know she'll answer any questions I might have!
04/23/09 Withdrew from a ton of schools. Put down deposits at UPitt and Case Western. I finally heard from Rutgers today. They waitlisted me. I was both surprised and moderately annoyed. They're 32 ranks lower than Case who accepted me AND gave me a scholarship. So, adios Rutgers-N. You were my top choice throughout the entire application process. I applied earlier to your school than most, and I get waitlisted. Ah well, I'm pretty sure I'll be in Cleveland this fall. And honestly? I'm excited. Planning on visitng in May. =)
6/4/2009 - after a lot of thought and a much needed visit to both the campus of Pitt and Case, I've decided on Pitt. Attending either school would've cost me the same amount of money, and the city of Pittsburgh is significantly more my style. It's not TOO big that I can't drive places but it doesn't have the overtly suburban feel of the Cleveland Heights area, etc. Plus, the people at Case told me to drive out to this mall because that's where the "high end" shopping was.. and it was pretty tame. Whereas in Pitt I can walk to a sephora if I live in Shadyside. Shallow, I know. But I need to love where I live. =)
