Applicant Information


Demographic Information

African American

Extra Curricular Information

Sorry to keep changing on everyone. That is my actual LSAT, and my GPA is 3.XX. I keep going from being paranoid to wanting to be helpful for those looking at specific schools.

Also I am applying to a lot of reaches, but I feel like I might as well try so that I don't regret anything.

Scholarships are on a per year basis.


Sent = when I sent it on LSAC
Received = when LSAC processes it or when they emailed me letting me know they have received it
Complete = when schools informed me I was complete


~~05/19/08 Finally rejected from USC. At least they said it was a "difficult deliberation". =)

~~04/15/08 (TAX DAY!!!) Accepted to UNC with a $5,000 scholarship. Woke up this morning to find the two emails!!

~~04/01/08 Priority waitlist at UVA!! Very excited, because I was just happy with a general waitlist.

~~03/31/08 Waitlisted at Loyola. Withdrew today.

~~03/21/08 In at USF with $25,000 a year!! Very shocked because I assumed all those scholarships would be gone by now.

~~03/13/08 Finally received my scholarship offer from San Diego. They are offering me $29,000 a year, which is very tempting because it's in CA. Hopefully I'll get to visit the school and get a better idea if it is for me.

~~03/03/08 Waitlisted at Vandy!! I'm going to send in my LOCI and a few other goodies and hope for the best.

~~02/28/08 Rejected at UC Davis. My chances of ending up in Northern California are dwindling.

~~02/14/08 Rejected from Hastings but in at San Diego.

~~02/11/08 Just got rejected from Berkeley and Michigan today. But I found out that Fordham is giving me $5,000 per year, with no GPA requirement.

~~01/30/08 Just rejected from Northwestern today. No surprise, but it's still sad.

~~01/28/08 Wake just offered me full tuition!! Very tempting!! Also I guess I'm up for the Fletcher Scholarship too!!

~~01/24/08 In at Wake today!!! Very excited after my first rejection, and NC is gorgeous so that's always a plus!

~~01/18/08 My first rejection came today. I knew it was coming, I was just hoping it wasn't going to be this soon.

~~01/10/08 In at Fordham today via email.

~~12/30/07 Just got back home to find that I've been accepted into Howard with $25,000 a year, and I got the scholarship award from McGeorge that offers $20,000 a year.

~~12/20/07 Sorry for teasing people about my Howard acceptance. I received an email that I thought sounded like an acceptance, but was just a PR email.

~~12/19/07 Accepted at Santa Claraa. I guess the email got to me before the mail did, but I called and confirmed that I was admitted. No scholarship money yet.

~~12/19/07 Got my letter from William Mary saying that I have a scholarship of $8,000 per year. All scholarship money is exciting!!!

~~ 12/18/07 My third acceptance in three hours!!! In at Howard, or as they put it matriculated at Howard. No scholarship offer yet

~~12/18/07 Just got into Temple too. I got basically a full scholarship, with $15,000 a year as long as I maintain a 2.5 GPA. I also qualify for in-state tuition so that would be a big help.

~~12/18/07 Just got into William & Mary by email.

~~12/15/07 Got my first acceptance!!!!!!! It's to McGeorge and I'm extremely happy. I'm admitted with Honors at Entrance so they pay for all of my first year books, and my application is being reviewed for a scholarship as we speak!!!!!!

I was really happy to get that first one. I need to stay in northern california and am interested in IP law, so Santa Clara was a nice one to get first. I hope one's on the way for you, too. Good luck!

Did you get the "Dear Social Engineer" letter via e-mail? If so, did you get a specific - you are accepted - e-mail? Thanks.

- fizgig
  • Congrats to you too
  • Wednesday, December 19 2007 at 01:27 PM

Cool...I got an email from the Admissions Dpt. saying Dear Social Engineer..."Congratulations on taking the first step on what we hope will become one of the most rewarding experiences of your life, matriculation at Howard University School of Law". I find it a bit strange, because I completed my application the day it became available. I really hope to be at Howard Law.

Silly Hoyas don't know what they're missing! A tiny flame of hope was just extinguished in my heart. If they're passing on you, my letter of sadness is probably forthcoming.

- prettypithy
  • Congrats!!

Sweet, trusting Lishi. If those were my real numbers, I'd be busy re-positioning my monocle and ennie-meenie-minie-moing between G'town and UVA. LOL, as it is, my real numbers are closer to your altered ones and I spend most of my free time biting my nails and genuflecting.

- prettypithy
  • Hey
