ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

Received = date LSDAS report requested
Complete = date they notified me that my application was complete.
Decision = date I found out
Scholarship information is for three years.

12/24/07 sent everything out via LSAC.org. Received fee waivers for all except St. John's.

02/02/08 in at NYLS with $5K scholarship a year (I'm a Faculty Scholar). Decision came in a small white envelope that looked a little thicker than what you would expect from a rejection letter. Bunch of papers in there about my scholarship and deposit information.

02/06/08 Decided to apply to Southwestern today. Here's to more decisions coming my way!

No matter what happens I am going to law school this fall!

2/14/08 Rejected at George Mason on Valentine's day - what a way to show some love. Talk about a heart breaker. This is rather depressing.

2/23/08 Fordham rejection sucks immensely.

02/29/08 My application is complete at Southwestern and is ready for review.

03/01/08 This was an absolute heart breaker. My top choice (UCLA) rejected me. Letter dated 2/22/08.

03/14/08 Rejected at Cardozo

03/18/08 In at Southwestern.

4/14/08 received the NYLS award letter today. i must say, i was quite disappointed. I'm withdrawing sometime this week.

4/15/08 Loyola application went to decision yesterday!

4/19/08 Received the rejection letter from Loyola today. This was a heart breaker. I really wanted to attend Loyola. Still waiting for SJU and USC.

04/28/08 I called SJU admissions today and apparently I was put on the waitlist. I really wasn't expecting to be waitlisted at SJU (nor was I expecting a rejection from Loyola). As soon as I get the letter, I will sent out the LOCI letter. Question is: is it worth it? Should I stay on the waitlist for SJU since Southwestern wants me?

Anyway, enough of the rambling. Now I'm only waiting for USC to render a decision and the process should be over with soon enough.

05/09/08 Rejected by USC. Looks like I will be attending Southwestern! Any future classmates out there, hit me up!

Loyola isn't very talkative. After their e-mail that said they'd received my app (a little less than a week after I sent it), I didn't hear a thing from them until I got the acceptance. It came in the mail, no e-mail. The acceptance said they did scholarship stuff seperately and several weeks later.

  • Thursday, January 03 2008 at 08:37 AM

I wouldn't sweat not having reports requested yet, it sounds like some schools wait up to a month (Loyola was 3.5 weeks for me), others are very quick. In regards to being complete, that could be up to another few weeks after they receive your report. I'm sure the holidays have slowed things down a bit too. Also, the report includes everything: transcript, LORs, etc. Good luck, what is your top choice?

Thanks for your message. I'm torn between four schools right now, Iowa, Indiana Bloomington, Marquette, and Valparaiso. Haven't heard any scholarship info from Marquette, though. Honestly, right now I'm leaning toward Valparaiso. I visited yesterday and fell in love with the campus and law school. I thought Bloomington would be my first choice, but for some reason, I just loved Valparaiso. What school are you hoping to go to?

Congrats on NYU! I'm getting more and more anxious about LLS.. especially at the fact that my chances of receiving a scholarship are getting smaller and smaller. I just hope they don't run out by the time they decide to accept us! I'm tempted to call but I don't know what to say.. "Hey, even Hastings has accepted me. What's wrong with you guys??"

  • Wednesday, February 13 2008 at 07:21 PM

Yeah, I think I'm going to try to wait a few more weeks - maybe the end of the month. I'm assuming they'll be sending out rejections by then... But I must stay optimistic. Let's hang in there! I'm sure our acceptances are on their way!

  • Marquette
  • Tuesday, February 19 2008 at 01:29 AM

Valparaiso wasn't necessarily my top choice...I just liked it a lot when I visited. Actually, Marquette has been my top choice all along, I just didn't know if I'd be able to go there (depending on scholarships, etc...I didn't want to make it my first choice until I'd heard more from them). It's close to my home and family, and the best decision for me is to stay close. So, now I'm almost certain I'm going to Marquette.

I'm sorry about Fordham. I bet you're feeling very anxious right now. Don't worry, you still have a lot of other schools left. Besides, if anything, you have NYLS to fall back on, which means you can stay in the NY area :) Although that would probably prevent our going to the same school :( I'm sure you're going to soon have a dilemma on which school you want to attend because you're going to have so many to choose from. Just hang in there!

  • Thursday, February 21 2008 at 09:14 PM

haha. That's okay. My wall is all yours. But yeah, USD was my back up back up, and Pepperdine is also a bit too conservative for me too, and that's why I was so nervous about Loyola. Speaking of Loyola, I went to decision yesterday. FINALLY! I still haven't received the letter yet, so I'm not 100% sure whether it's an acceptance. *crossing fingers* I hope you hear soon from them!!

In that case, our top choices and ideal situation are the same! We are destined to attend the same school! I know you'll be spending the next 3 years in LA! Also, the LLS packet said scholarship info comes separately. From what I gather, I think it usually comes about a week later. I really hope they at least match what Pepperdine has offered!

Also, Need Access sent you a confirmation? Was it via e-mail? I don't think I recieved any sort of confirmation. I submitted a few weeks ago.

But if it makes you feel better, UCLA is supposedly being extremely selective to try to climb the ranks. And I don't mean subtle changes. They haven't been accepting people who would have considered UCLA as targets. Many people believe this is going to bite them in their rear because many of the people they're currently accepting are going to withdraw and attend higher ranked schools like Berkeley and whatnot. In other words, don't be too bummed. I'm sure a lot of it had to do with their risk-taking strategy this cycle. Also, I don't think you would have utlimately picked Pepperdine in the end anyway, so you saved yourself some money. :]

At this point, I'm still undecided. FT or PT doesn't matter to me, I actually applied to the specific program on my chances of getting in. I visited Chicago and Loyola a few weeks back, really loved Loyola. I'm from NYC, and Chicago is a very comparable city (just smaller, obviously). But Pitt also gave me some good money, so I'm going to visit there end of the month. Still waiting to hear from a few others, but unless anything knocks my socks off, it'll come down to Loyola and Pitt... as of now, lol.

I believe my deposits are due around the 1st or 15th of April. What about you? So did you ever end up applying to Pepperdine? Or did the mission statement portion deter you? I know many people end up not applying because they don't want to spend any more time writinging another essay. Also, I too am a little disappointed I was offered less at Loyola - even if it's only $2,000 a year. But at the same time, I'm very thankful.

Since I'm planning on keeping my full-time job, Loyola and Southwestern's evening program were my only LA options.

Hey, Congrats on Southwestern! My scholarship $ came with the acceptance letter but I have yet to receive formal financial aid notice. If anything, you might want to ask them to give an award notice beforehand. I hope this helps ;)

  • Yay!
  • Tuesday, March 18 2008 at 11:42 AM

Such exciting news about your Southwestern acceptance--my Loyola status checker moved to decision today, so I should know by the week's end! No word from Southwestern yet, but we may definitely be bookworms at SW together. Congrats again!

HI! Sorry, I've been sooo busy the past few days and I haven't had the chance to log on, BUT CONGRATS ON SOUTHWESTERN!!! Does that mean you'll be moving to LA area for sure? I'm very excited for you~ Although your dilemma re: financial aid award letter and deposit seems a bit absurd. Nevertheless, CONGRATS~ Also, I'm not exactly from LA, but I live about an hour or two away from there :D Let me know when you visit~ And congrats again hehe

congrats on southwestern the scholarship was part of the acceptance letter it was the Wildman Merit Scholarship. But i applied for financial aid from southwestern and your elgible for more scholarships through that. BTW your from new york i applied to University at Buffalo its part of SUNY have you been there ever? Any insight?

  • not sure
  • Friday, March 21 2008 at 06:50 AM

I'm not sure about putting down a deposit at NYLS. I applied to it as my safety, and I got into a few other schools I'd rather go to. So, probably not, but I still have a few more days, so maybe?!

  • Congrats
  • Friday, March 21 2008 at 06:40 PM

on the acceptances!! Though I'm bummed, we have almost identical numbers as well as factors like Dean's List and The National Dean's List, and Golden Key, and USG, etc. I was really hoping for Fordham and Cardozo to be the schools in NY to actually accept me.

- oscarlaw
  • Thanks
  • Sunday, March 23 2008 at 07:28 AM

I'm currently undecided. Obviously, Fordham is #1 but I think I'd more rather go to BLS than Cardozo despite the difference in ranking. After that is SJU then NYLS. You from NYC? HIGH FIVE fellow New Yorker. Good luck on the rest of your cycle and be sure to let me know where you end up (I need more class of2011 buddies)!

I think, as of now, I'm headed to Loyola Chicago for the PT program. But i got a big scholarship from PItt and will be visiting the admitted students open house this upcoming weekend. Gotta make sure I like the city and stuff, and if it's a good fit, I could be headed there. How bout yourself?

So, firstly, congrats on SW! And if you didnt glean it from my updated profile, Loyola wasnt all that great--the campus at least. Im investigating other options but am definitely still considering it. I did, however, like L.A. a lot and the prospect of working/living there. Btw, how was your match?

they are taking extremely wrong. i called them too and the person on the phone told me I ve been waiting a long time and promised me she would place the application that day to the committee for a decision. I got into nyls. By the way do you think NYLS is a good school and whether its worth the money to go there? ivw heard good things and bad things so i dont know what to think. im going to go to an open house hopefully get some information about it

  • Wednesday, April 02 2008 at 07:04 PM

still did not get my financial aid award letter from nyls. im actually going to the open house this friday. I spoke to a financial aid counselor. you dont get any grants but he said everyone is eligible for the federal loans and if you dont have much income the 8500 dollar subsidized loan too. As for need access mentioned that even if your parents make a decent income you cans still be eligible for some need based grants. yeah st. johns did fall quite alot this year

Finally Got an answer from St. Johns. Did not want to get waitlisted but oh well. Looks like I am headed to NYLS. Went to the open house yesterday for NYLS and it looks like a good school. Glad the waiting period is over for me. Atleast I know im going to law school. Hope you get positive answers back from the schools your still waiting for soon.

- uclaonly
  • Hey
  • Monday, April 14 2008 at 03:32 AM

I'm heading up to SJU today to hand in my deposit. So, if BLS and Cardozo don't come through, I'll be at SJU in the Fall. You?

- philzaga
  • Hey
  • Monday, April 14 2008 at 08:59 AM

I just submitted a deposit to SJU this morning..and RIGHT AFTER I left SJU, I got a call from BLS offering me a PT seat with priority FT placement if seats open. WTF!!!! lol, I don't know what to do, haha. Anyway, I'll talk to you on AIM. -=]

Hey, just wanted to let you know I've decided to attend Chicago Kent this fall. It came down to between that, Loyola chicago, and pittsburgh, but I just wasn't in love with the city of Pittsburgh, and Chicago would be better suited for me coming from New York. I wish you the best of luck in wherever you choose, and please keep me updated.

  • Decision from SW?
  • Sunday, April 20 2008 at 03:06 PM

Hello! I was wondering how Southwestern let you know you were admitted. Did the status checker change to "decision made" or did it actually tell you that you had been admitted? I think I'd really like SW, and I just want to find out! We're almost exactly numbers twins, so I'm hoping your good fortune will be mine, too! Thanks and congrats!

- Blondie5
  • Thanks!
  • Sunday, April 20 2008 at 03:34 PM

Okay, so it'll be a surprise, then! Now I can stop re-checking the status checker every 10 mins... Thanks a lot, and I'll post up when I hear from them (good or bad). Also, I too was rejected from Loyola L.A. yesterday, so I feel your pain!

  • Friday, May 09 2008 at 08:58 AM

yea I'm going to do that. Although I send in my deposit to NYLS if I get into St. John's or Cardozo I would rather go there. plus the money that I would lose on the deposit would be more than made up by tuition being somewhat less at St. John's. So right now are u going to Southwestern and would u go to St. John's if you did get off the waitlist?
