1/3/07--Still waiting on Maryland to request my report. I haven't received any "complete" notices yet.
1/4/07--Email from W&M stating that my application is now complete.
1/5/07--Maryland finally requested my report. Yay! Email confirmation from Baylor with my status check password info.
1/8/07--Email from Illinois stating that my application is now complete.
1/9/07--Email that I'm complete at UTK. That was fast!
1/11/07--More complete notifications via email from SMU, Pace, Franklin Pierce, and American.
01/24/07--Got three emails from GMU yesterday telling me that my app is complete.
*Phone call from admissions rep at Hamline congratulating me on my acceptance and offer of Dean's Merit scholarship: $15,700/yr renewable. Details forthcoming in the mail! Yay!
01/26/07--Email from Pierce. I'm in! No mention of money, but they're sending me an official letter with "further information," so I'm hoping they offer me a scholarship or something. :-)
01-26-07--Came home to two rejection letters from American and Maryland. I knew they were dings from what I've read on this message board. Oh well...their loss, right?
01-29-07--Letter from Pierce came today. Offer of $12,000/yr scholarship with 3.2 GPA. Cool!
01-30-07--Email from Temple stating that my file is complete.
02-02-07--I was among those who got the now infamous Hofstra email on Friday. I was able to login, but I'll wait for their official acceptance notification before changing my status on here from "pending" to "accepted" just in case it was a glitch.
02-05-07--Got my Hofstra acceptance in the mail today. Came priority with $18,000k/yr scholarship and free t-shirt. There was a very nice hand-written note about my work experience and professional background.
02-06-07--Got my rejection letter from Illinois today. I was expecting it soon, so no big surprise there. *sigh* I'm really starting to wish I was retaking the LSAT this Saturday.
*Complete at UGA via status checker.
02-09-07--spoke with very nice admissions rep from UTK on the phone. I'm in!!! With in-state tuition. YES!
02-10-07--Rejection letter from DePaul. Don't care. I got into Tennessee!
02-12-07--UTA status checker says my file is complete. Got my acceptance letter from UTK in the mail! I actually squealed with delight when I opened it. I also got an acceptance letter from Marquette today--thin envelope in case you were wondering. No mention of $$$ though. With each acceptance so far, I get one rejection to balance it out. I'm at 5 and 4 now,so I expect a rejection from somewhere this week to balance everything out again. I hope it's not from Catholic.
02-16-07--In at Pace with $15K/yr scholarship. Came in large Priority Mail envelope.
02-19-07--Sending out four withdraw forms tomorrow for Pierce, Pace, Hofstra and Marquette. Pierce was a tough decision to make since I want to do IP law. Hopefully, this will make some room for others on waitlists.
02-20-07--FINALLY heard from Catholic today with a waitlist letter. It's starting to look more and more like I will be Knoxville-bound in August. I'm still very excited about Tennessee. It's a solid school PLUS I scored in-state residency.
02-21-07--Email from Penn State. I'm in! More info to follow in the mail. Rock on.
02-23-07--Came home to two large packets--one from Penn State and one from St. Thomas. St. Thomas offered me $8,000 merit scholarship/yr. I'm narrowing down my choices, so I'll be withdrawing from St. Thomas next week. No word on money from Penn State, but I'm hoping that will come later.
02-28-07--Scholarship letter from Penn State came today. $5K/yr renewable as long as I'm in top half of class. I was kind of hoping for a little more dough.
03-05-07--Ok, DC, I get it! You don't want me. Fine. Your cost-of-living is too expensive anyway, so there.
Got accepted at Toledo. No mention of $$$, but it's nice to get an acceptance to balance out the George Mason ding. *sigh*
03-19-07--Came back from vacation to find a rejection letter from UTA (shocked!) and a deferral letter from L&C. Found out about the Georgia ding via status checker.
03-26-07--I've decided I will be attending UTK. I'm still going to leave my application status up since I'm still curious about the remaining schools I haven't heard from. Good luck to everyone and hopefully I'll see some of you in Knoxville!
03-28-07--Waitlisted at W&M. Do you have any idea how relieved I am that I wasn't rejected? They've been my top choice from the beginning, and it's validating enough to know that I *could* possibly, maybe get into a T1 school.
07-22-07--Moving to Knoxville in 3 weeks. Orientation begins Aug. 20th. Good luck to everyone with your first year!
