I'm a reverse splitter, but I hope this info helps anyone in the same boat! If I can do it you can do it! :)

11/5: University of Toledo emailed me saying I had been accepted! Said that a letter will follow in the mail. Full ride!!

11/8: Got an email from University of Daytons IT Department congratulating me on my acceptance! Dont know if a letter will follow but application status checker also showed I had been admitted! Dayton is my dream school!

11/12: Got my letter from UD today! Full ride!!!!! So excited! This is honestly a dream come true!

11/14: Accepted into Northern Kentucky!!

11/15: Received an email from Northern Kentucky stating that I had received a scholarship. After checking status checker, said $30,000. Will receive more detailed information in the mail.

11/15: Received a call from Belmont University. The short interview went well, basically asked about why I wanted to attend Belmont, my reason for going to law school, etc. also gave me the opportunity to ask some questions. Dont know how the interview went but I hope I did well. The school is in my top 3!

11/20: Received an email from Drake that I was accepted! Im really excited about this acceptance! My LSAT fell into the 25th percentile so thats an accomplishment for me!! I dont know about scholarships but they are sending more information in the mail!

11/20: Received a letter in the mail from Northern Kentucky that detailed scholarship info! I updated it to reflect what the letter said. Really happy to see what the amount was :)

11/21: Got a phone call from Michigan State telling me I had been accepted! This was such a huge shock to me...I wasn't expecting to get accepted into their program! Also got a 28,000 scholarship! I updated the stats to reflect the offer. Going to be a tough decision!

11/21: Received a handwritten note from an Admissions person from NKU telling me that they were really impressed with my personal statement! It was a real honor to receive this note!

11/22: Received an email from Belmont saying I had been accepted! I dont know about scholarship info but I am so happy to have been accepted here! When I got my LSAT score I was afraid I couldnt apply since my score was below 25th percentile. But, prayer pays off!

11/25 (My Birthday!): Received my information from Drake University via mail! Got a $25,000/year scholarship! Updated stats reflect the over 3 year amount. I really cant wait to tour!

11/29: Received my Michigan State info in the mail! So excited to tour this school! One of the Admissions people wrote a comment telling me they enjoyed reading my personal statement! So honored that so many enjoyed reading my story!

11/30: Received my admittance letter from Belmont today. Bummed to see no scholarship offers, but at least it helps me narrow down my list a bit!

12/04: Accepted to McKinney! Found out via email. Bummed that the scholarship was so small, but it's exciting to have been admitted!

12/04: Received an email from University of Kentucky that I was waitlisted. They encouraged me to retake the LSAT. Honestly kind of bummed but, so thrilled to have heard good news from other schools!

12/12: Waitlisted at DePaul. Very surprised by this decision. I was not really liking my outcomes I decided to put my deposit down at another school.

12/14: Graduated today! Officially have my BS!

12/17: Withdrew my applications from the schools I have heard from so far...except for the one that I have put my seat deposit down at! I am so excited to attend University of Dayton, and can't wait to start law school in Fall 2020!

1/09: And the acceptances keep rolling in! Heard from University of Louisville that I was accepted. Kindly withdrew my application soon after receiving the email.

1/10: Heard from University of Memphis. Withdrew my application as I will not be attending. I only have one more school to hear from :)

1/17: Received an email I was waitlisted at Villanova. Honestly not too surprised :)

With that, my journey through law school apps comes to an end. I have been so very thankful for the turnout, with not one rejection! If you ever have questions, feel free to message me on here! I love connecting with people and sharing whatever advice I have!

For those who are just beginning your journey to law school, Ive been in your shoes, and I know how terrifying and daunting this process is! Remember to take a deep breath and throw your app out there!

We have very similar LSAT and GPA numbers. I have only heard back from a handful of schools though. Did you do anything special/write supplemental essays to receive all of those scholarship offers? Keep up the good work!

Congrats on your acceptance to Belmont! I was reading your notes and saw that they called for an interview. Were you expecting the call? I did not know that they do phone interviews. Thanks for taking the time to walk us through your journey! It is so helpful!
