9/10 - Retaking the LSAT in October 08

10/5- Retook the LSAT yesterday, not really sure how I feel about it. Guess I'll know soon enough!

Still getting my apps together. Very stressful process, going to school full time, working full time and getting the apps ready. If I don't get into UofL I'm going to be heartbroken :(

10/17- So all my LORs are in. Still stressing over the personal statement.

10/27- Major disappointment. Didn't bump my score up at all :(
University is sending my transcript out today. Hopefully my GPA will help me since my LSAT sucks!!

11/7- Transcripts are in to LSAC. Now I just have to finish up my PS. It's getting close. Probably gonna send out UofL beginning of next week.

12/10- Just sent out my first app today to UofL. Starting off with my #1 choice so we'll see how that goes!!

12/27-So I've recently been thinking that I'm only going to apply to Louisville and if I don't get in there I'm just going to sit out a year, take a prep course and try again on next cycle. Louisville is really the only school I want to go to so if it doesn't work out I'm going to be very upset. I know you shouldn't put all your eggs in one basket but I can't see myself being anywhere else.

1/8- I emailed UofL to check on the status of my application and they said it was complete and going to the committee in a few weeks. EEK Im nervous!! Wish me luck :) Oh and I received a fee waiver from SLU which is fairly close to home so I'm probably going to at least apply there.

1/20-Still playing the waiting game. I just wish I knew what I was going to do next year: Louisville or home!! Come on just give me a decision already.

1/24-Received a letter from Louisville today saying they were saving my application for future committee review in a couple weeks. A little bit of a bummer but at least its not a rejection. There is hope for me still.

2/16-Haven't heard anything else from Louisville. How long is this gonna take!?!?

2/18-Received an email saying they were going to review my application at the end of March. Guess I'm in it for the long haul. :( Can't wait to know something!

4/2-Received an email on Tuesday saying the second review was pushed back until mid/end of April. The waiting is killing me!!

6/27- Got a call from the Louisville yesterday giving me the heads up that an acceptance letter was in the mail!!! Super pumped since its the only school I applied to lol.... IM GOING TO LAW SCHOOL.... Gonna head up there tomorrow and start looking at apts :)

Do you go to school at UK? Good luck with everything. You should apply to UK Law as I'm sure they take people with your numbers from time to time.

Thanksl! SIU isn't my top choice, but I'm trying to ignore the rankings and really look at every school I get into. Good luck with your cycle as well! Stay positive!

Hi! I got an email from them letting me know that they were going to start reviewing apps in mid-December. I just got my acceptance letter on Saturday...I wasn't expecting to hear from them until January, so I was shocked. Good luck to you! Hopefully I'll see you in class in August!

U of L is my first pick as well. I understand your not wanting to apply to more schools...I was tempted myself. Hopefully we'll be classmates next fall!

Hey, as of right now I'm not sure where my top choice would be. I'm gonna visit and see how i like it. My first choice was UGA, but I got rejected pretty quickly. Now I'm gonna wait and see what happens. Good luck with Louisville.

Best of luck with Louisville!!I really, really think you should apply to SLU. It's my #2 right now. My #1 is IU-Indy but I doubt I'll get any money and maybe not even accepted. i love st. louis, you should REALLY get off work tomorrow and go up to the open house. You'd really be impressed with the area and I think you could get in there no problem. Apply before 2/12 to be considered for scholarships.

I emailed U of L yesterday and I have not heard back from them. Did you get a faster respone and who did you send it to? Hopefully, I will have heard back before you answer...but just in case. :) In response to your prior response...this is making me a nervous wreck as well. I feel your pain.

Hopefully you'll be getting some good news soon! Maybe I'll see you at U of L in the Fall!

I have no idea what I'm going to do! Now I'm thinking that I want to go to UK. I change my mind on a daily basis, so who knows!! You definitely need to apply to SLU and IU_Indy!!

UL has still not let me know anything. At this point for me the decision does not matter a whole lot, but I would get in touch with the admissions office if you haven't heard anything for a while. Good luck with getting in though.

I had no contact with them prior or since receiving a small envelope in the mail informing me that I had been waitlisted.

No, I haven't heard from them, and I should have at the end of April. I'm doubting getting into that school, even though it would be so nice! Good luck to you! I'm sure you have a better chance.

I haven't heard anything! They said they would let me know by the end of April, but the end of April has definitely passed and I still haven't heard a word. I'm starting to lose hope!

Sorry it is taking me so long to get back to you. No, I have not heard anymore news from them since they put me on the waitlist.

I got into U of L finally... June 1st. But I've already moved to KC so too little too late. Whats up with you?

I'm still waiting to hear back from Louisville as well. I got a letter in March stating my app was on hold, and have recently confirmed my application hasn't been reviewed yet. Best of Luck to you!
