Additional info & updates

Status:

11/13 Had my interview with Northwestern. Thought it went well. Now I really want to go there!

11/15 Received email that my application is complete at Chicago Kent and George Mason
11/26 Received email that application is complete at Loyola University Chicago
11/27 Application Complete at Catholic University

12/03/07 I called most of my schools to confirm that my applications were complete. Totally surprised to find out there was already a decision in the mail from University of Baltimore. I wish they could have given me the answer over the phone!

Accepted at U.Baltimore. I started crying just to know I have somewhere to go next year!

12/04/07 Application Complete at John Marshall
Same day I get an email from Dean inviting me to join this January! But, this also means I'm accepted to the fall! Quite the decision!!!!

12/05/07 Accepted to Thomas Jefferson with $17,000 per year. I NEVER thought I would be given scholarship money.

12/07/07 Northwestern Complete...FINALLY!

12/10/07 My first rejection. I'm not going to Depaul. I'm totally ok with that.

12/14 Waitlisted at Chapman...egh

12/17 Today I got the call from Loyola. I cannot express how happy I am. I feel very accomplished!

I came home to an acceptance from New York Law School....but Loyola matters more to me!

12/20 I Decided I'm going to be lame and lazy and Not apply to Brooklyn because of that stupid certification letter. I dont have time for that!

12/26 In at Valpo. Hmm, Indiana

01/04 Accepted at California Western

01/08 DING! George Mason

01/12 DING! DING! American

01/14 Washington D.C doesnt want me. Rejected at Catholic

01/18 Accepted at St. Thomas with a nice T-Shirt. Deferred at George Washington and Kent. I dont want to wait another 2 months!

01/31 Northwestern rejection....................

02/02 Why would Hofstra waitlist me!? Not that I care...

02/04 GW Ding. Not a single school in DC wanted me.....Guess it wasnt meant to be.

02/19 Rejected from Harvard. Were you really surprised?

I feel like its time for a minor rant. I'm frustrated with the actions of certain schools. I dont like it when an applicant applies on February 1st, hears from the school 2 weeks later, and I've been waiting for 3 months with no word. I dont care if an applicant scored a 160.....applications should be reviewed in some general order by when they were received. And if it's going to be a rejection, why make me wait 4 months!?

04/24 Thrilled to announce I have given my deposit to Loyola.

04/26 Rejected at Denver, 5 MONTHS after application complete.

05/03 USD selects based on LSAT numbers. I dont want to go to a school that admits for those reasons.

I haven't completely decided yet. There are a couple I like more than some of the others, but it's really hard to then choose between those :( What about you!?

haha

Thank you, Penn is one of my favorites. I think as long as you wait to the end, and stay interested, you will have a good shot at Northwestern :) But in the meantime, you have good news for the holidays!

Good luck

Congrats on all of the acceptances so far. I really hope they actually consider all of there deferrals for Kent. I see you are a PA at McDermott. I am a PA also.

Thanks!

Hey, Thanks for your message. It does look like we have similar numbers as well as a wide range of schools in common. It's all been very exciting. I thought I would have issues getting accepted, but it's the other way around. In terms of soft factors, I might say that I'm Latino and have had much diversity in my career as it seems you have. Who knows we might end up at the same law school. Good luck throughout admissions process!!! Keep me posted.

Hey, I had a problem with the application fee actually with San Diego. I got a fee waiver and they said I didn't so I just withdrew. Congrats on your acceptances!
