Got acceptance letter from UofMiami today (Feb. 29)... Yayyy! at least one of my backups came through for me... Now on to the rejections. lol

Brooklyn Law is really confusing me!!! y keep sending me scholarship and Legal Education Opportunity Program info if my status is still pending?! Stop with the mixed signals man, I'm goin bonkers!

Checked online status for UGA today, it bluntly stated, "sorry, your application for admissions has been denied." I guess they felt no need to finesse the rejection. Oh well, on to the next... trying to keep hope alive.

Got rejection letter from Emory... that one really stings, but i was prepared. At least they were nice, and very eloquent. God has a different plan for me

Got acceptance from DePaul, $45,000 scholarship, whooohooo (at least someone appreciates me, lol)

Got scholarship package from U of Miami!! Pretty sweet!

So.. got acceptance email from U of Cincinnati (highest ranking school so far- whoohooo). Cant wait for the acceptance package to come.

Gor rejection letters from Columbia and NYU... they were both very kind. I'm not as distraught as I thought I'd be... I guess I had enough time to prepare myself for the rejection :(

Gettin nervous, so I applied to 2 schools in the 40s, and Notre Dame... help

Got acceptance email from U of Iowa!!!! Thank u Jesus! Super excited, highest ranked school so far, and I love Iowa City. So I'm oober excited :)

Rejection letter from U of Michigan... I'm ok though, i was prepared for it,on to the next

Got waitlist email from illinois, at least it wasn't a rejection. The wait will be worst than the decision :/

March 31- money from cincinnati... i'm so confused

April 2- waitlisted at American U- not too disappointed :-/

April 18- instantly becoming the queen of the waitlist (waitlisted @ Tulane)...
-denied waitlist @ American and withdrew app. from Brooklyn Law.
-Officially sent out my deposit for Iowa yesterday... very painful. i'm beginning to doubt my decision :-/. God give me strength!
-I guess I'm queen of the rejections also... rejected @ Fordham :(

April 22
Waitlisted @ Cordozo :-/
Rejected @ Notre Dame :(

So... It's been a while since I updated anything. Although my cycle looks bleak, I actually had a pretty successful run. I am officially the queen of waitlists, lol. But it's ok, I got full tuition scholarships from both Iowa and Cincinnnati. Of course, even with all the rejections and waitlists, that's more than I could've ever asked for... So, Midwest, here I come. Thank God this process is over, and thank God for blessing me with a scholarship! *Univerisity of Iowa '11* (finally, lol)

Right now, I really like Wash U, Emory, Cornell and UT Austin, but we'll see where I end up. Do you have a first choice right now? Good luck with all your apps and let me know where you decide to go!

I'm so sorry to hear about Georgia and Emory. They're really missing out! But as you said, God has a different plan for you, and I'm sure that He will place you at the school that's right for you! Don't give up hope and stay prayerful (I'll be praying for ya). Take care!

Congrats on your DePaul Acceptance and Scholarship! You've earned it! This is just the start of more blessings to come! I'm really excited about my acceptances from WUSTL and Cornell, but I want to make sure that I'm where God wants me to be. I don't want to cross off any school on my list just yet.

I appreciate your stopping by to leave some encouragement. Congrats to you for that great acceptance and scholarship! It's always nice to see when schools prove how much they believe in your future. :-) Wherever you decide to go, show no mercy! Leave no doubt that you're bringing the legal profession to the next echelon! Good Luck and K.I.T! :-D

Listen I got into Rutgers Newark with a 151 and they gave me a 8k scholarship and Im in the Minority Program. If you applied for seton why not Rutgers. I think you have a great chance and its super cheap. Best of luck regardless.

Congrats on your $$ from Cincinnati! You've got some great options! If it makes you feel any better, I have NO EARTHLY idea of where I'm going either and money really isn't helping make my decision easier.

I'm at Cornell right now and I LOVE IT! I think I'm going to go there for law school. It's an amazing school and a JD from there could open up so many opportunities for me. Have you made a decision yet?
