That sounds good. I will let you know when I am going there. Probably March 8th. I figure if I throw 26 aps out there I will be able to get into some! How did you get fee waivers through every school? Did you do the LSDAS fee waiver ap? I have to say that it probably would have been a lot cheaper for me if I qualified for that!

Misery loves company. Glad I wasn't the only one who found their scholarship offer insulting. Not even tempted since Cleveland State (another Tier 3) offered me full in-state tuition. Right now, to be honest, the only schools that still have my interest are Oklahoma City University and Cleveland State. I visited OCU and loved it there and felt really comfy. I don't care how they're ranked. Comfort level makes a huge difference to me.

  • Friday, February 16 2007 at 12:34 PM

OCU said that for their joint JD/MBA program, we can be admitted to the business school based on our law school application and don't have to take the GMAT. That is a HUGE draw for me.

  • Saturday, February 24 2007 at 07:16 AM

Actually I didn't get any scholarship information either...the big surprise was the sticker. You didn't think that was pretty cool?!? Anyway I finished filling out my financial aid yesterday and the most schools FAFSA let me apply for were 6. Unfortunatly Indiana did not make my top 6. I think that I might withdraw from them in the next couple of days - you know create good karma. Well congrats on all the new acceptances, talk to ya later.

Hey that's good to know that I do more than six. I'll call you in the next couple of days to learn the magic. As for my current top 6 - University of Kentukcy UCONN UW - Madison George Washngton (I hope) William and Mary (I hope) and University of Minnesota - which you just told me rejected thanks for the emotional boost. Actually, I think that I may still have a little bit of a least i'm still holding out.

  • Wednesday, March 07 2007 at 09:14 AM

I'm not going to lie, I am really excited about Minnesota. When I first decided that I wanted to go to law school this was the school of my choice. After the LSAT I wasn't sure that I'd make it but I keep hoping. Looks like somewhere along the way I did something right. In answer to your qustion I did not write them a letter of continued interest. I sent a couple of emails and I planned a trip to visit the campus in April. I think this may have showed them how serious I was about wanting to get into their school. I'm excited. Make sure and let me know when you find out.

  • Wednesday, March 21 2007 at 10:20 AM

As of now IU is still my number one. Largely bc my boyfriend is from there and wants to move back there and all is family lives around there.... Also its a good school and not too urban or dirty hehe. So you are leaning towards Tennessee at this point? What if you got into Urbana, Emory, or Vandy? I think the only thing that might change my mind about IU at this point is if I got into Urbana, Arizona, or Wisconsin. I am actually going to visit IU campus this weekend. Good Luck!

- hkm6315
  • I hear that
  • Wednesday, March 21 2007 at 12:18 PM

which is why I would love to go to San Diego, Davis, or Santa Clara (gorgeous campuses, perfect weather, good schools, ocean) but tuition to those schools is ridiculous and living in California is out of this world expensive. Tenn sounds like they made you a pretty damn good offer. Congrats!

- hkm6315
  • UTK
  • Wednesday, March 21 2007 at 01:30 PM

Congrats to you too on the scholarship, it is the same one that you have. I would think that good standing is just above a certain GPA, prob like 2.5 or something. I'm starting to consider UTK especially since it's looking like ND is a whitewash (its my first choice, I go here, and they havent e-mailed me yet). Does it have a solid SEC feel and are the girls gorgeous, because that's a huge selling point, haha? How nice is the campus and what was your impression of the place? Thanks for all the info man.

- NDMart5
  • info
  • Wednesday, March 21 2007 at 09:47 PM

Dude, thanks so much for the info about the visit, your story has certainly pushed UTK to the top of my list so far pending the rest of my decisions. The leave your keys and computer around thing actually is a big deal to me since it's exactly the same here at ND, I leave my door open all day even when myself and my roommate aren't around, and I've never had a problem. It's something I've grown used to and certainly would like to continue experiencing. I'm from the NYC area though, I'd like to know how Knoxville stacks up in terms of the bar scene and the entertainment scene if you know at all from either your travels or from any of the stories the 1L told you. Also, did you visit Vanderbilt in Nashville while you were there? I was there over spring break and I loved it.

  • Tuesday, April 03 2007 at 05:23 PM

yeah i think i have it narrowed down to those two. i'm really not too thrilled at the thought of another 3 years at michigan state (went there for undergrad), but the full ride is really tempting. it hurts to think about turning down an opportunity in DC, but $180,000 is a LOT of debt. i know i want to end up in DC, but i'm not sure that much money for american is worth it. congrats on making your decision, though. tennessee is a great school, especially with your full ride!

- jjjerryjorg
  • Friday, April 06 2007 at 02:38 PM

On having your decision made! Yay Knoxville! I wish I could feel the comfort right now of knowing where I was going to be living and going to school for the next three years, but unfortunately I am playing the waiting game here. Indiana finally gave me somewhat of a scholarship, so thats good. Florida gave me money too, not sure how much yet though bc I don't know my UF ID to log in and see it! Its looking like Indiana, but if Wisconsin or Arizona come through here (or if FLA gives me a lot of $$), I might consider those. The waiting game for three months is starting to get to me though!

I'll be 29 in a few days, so this is a second career for me. I grew up about 1 hr north of Indy, and want to be closer to the folks, especially since grandchildren could be in the offing.

Sooo. I am really considering taking a year off and trying again now. I am graduating undergrad in a few weeks and I just really don't feel ready to leave right now. If I wait another year, my boyfriend and I don't have to do long distance as long... Plus I plan on actually taking a class and keeping my LSAT up like it was in my practice tests. I can then take the LSAT two more times and get a job as an intern or something at a law firm here for a year... Right now my score + gpa is right at that fringe level to where if I had just a few more points I would be getting larger scholarship offers and more acceptances. I don't know. I have to decide by May 1

Hey..saw that you decided to go to UTK and was wondering if you had any insight as to how the admissions process is ran. I applied in late October and have not heard back from them yet, I have called and my apps are complete...I am starting to think it might come down to a waitlist since it has taken so long...any truth to that? thanks,

Hello, just dropping by. I see that you are attending U of T. How is the school for someone wishing to study international law, perhaps not leaning to business-side, but more on public int'l law? i really have no clue.. :)
