Applicant Information

Demographic Information


Extra Curricular Information

- Worked full time during school to help family out during crisis.


I love the Chicago area, and would like to attend school in that area in hopes of practicing there once I am all growed up. My choice is of course influenced by scholarship money from some schools. I will make schools vis once I have gotten a decision.

11-17-07 - Maybe some proof that admission committees do not read personal statements. I was deferred today from Akron, with an essay I put [insert law school name here]...... Hmmmmm

11-30-07 - Rec. phone call from SIU, missed the call. Called back, accepted! One of the better schools so far this cycle, and a nice little scholarship, even better after I qualify for instate tuition after 6 months.

12-01-07 - LSU ding ding ding! First, of the many I am sure, rejection of the cycle. I knew I didn't really have a chance anyways, but to reject this quick.....uppity bastards. I only applied there because I thought the football team was cool, but now I hope the LSU Tigers lose their bowl game.

12-05-07 - Phone call from Ms. Ekpo, the dean of admissions at Florida A&M College of Law. Accepted! Excellent, I really like the Orlando area, and I would like to see that school.

12-08-07 - Accepted to TJSL with nice little scholarship. Letter dated 12/4.

12-10-07 - Double ding! Miami and DePaul. Miami does not bother me, but DePaul does a little.....bastards.

12-17-07 - It's always a good day when 3 acceptances come in and 0 rejections! In via who knows what at Widener, Capital, and Charlotte. I have no idea because I am at my parents house recuperating from knee surgery. Thank god I have an operative back at the mailbox for me, otherwise this would really really suck!

12-22-07 - Alright, in at John Marshall. So Chicago is still a possibility, no mention of scholarship money according to my informant. Feels good!

12-24-07 - A very merry Christmas indeed. Accepted today at St Thomas & Cleveland State. Big letter sized envelope from St Thomas, CSU was big fat regular sized envelope packed with info.

01-08-08 - Accepted Toledo PT Day program as well as at Ohio Northern. No mention of money so far from ON. Got a nice free shirt from U of St Thomas the other day.....that was pretty cool.

01-17-08 - Texas Tech.....they have a nice way of saying waitlisted, and accepted at Mississippi College "A Christian University"....... though that sounded condescending, I would probably love the republican slant at that school.

01-18-08 - U of Tenn.....reject....not shocked...

02-02-08 - It has been awhile. So.... I officially have not received really good news in about a month, and it is getting really old. Rejected today at Stetson and Loyola. Couldn't care less about Stetson, but Loyola hurt. As mentioned previously, I really want to go to Chicago.... but it is looking a little less viable now a days.....son of a bitch. Wait listed at Loyola NO, so they dont immediately hate me....THANKS! SIU still seems to be my best choice so far...... we shall see in a few more months!

02-05-08 - Thanks Hofstra.... didn't want to go there anyway. It was free....come on.

02-19-08 - NIU placed me on hold..... I will not add to NIU's issues, but I am leaning towards SIU anyway....thanks yet again!

02-22-08 - Well the most exciting info I have had in a few week's or so.....Texas Wesleyan online status check flipped over to decision yesterday, sooooooooo I am willing to believe another acceptance is on the way. But we shall see! So exciting! Other news: I think I am pretty much set with Southern Ill. Still waiting for a few of the schools to respond, but I visited the campus and everything seemed to be on the up and up. So most likely Carbondale here I come, I will start withdrawing apps from schools to free up room soon enough.

02-27-08 - Rejected at Denver... big shocker there, waitlisted at Texas Wesleyan which really surprised me.... who do Texas Wesleyan think they are!?

03-07-08 - MSU rejection! Wow, thanks! I would rather go to SIU anyway, even if I did live across the street!

03-08-08 - I don't remember applying to La Verne, but I was accepted with a nice grant.... Good stuff..... I need to go through and start withdrawing to help people out, I have just been extremely busy lately! Maybe in the next week I will take care of that!

03-10-08 - Starting the withdraw process. I am pretty set on SIU but it really makes you look into each school to ensure each one if not right for you. It's a surreal experience considering a year ago I was pretty sure I was going to Cooley... now I have excellent...excellent...excellent options!

03-14-08 - Still withdrawing from schools. Also I have gotten very bold in asking schools for more $, I will let everybody know how this works out and what the letter says.

03-15-08 - It feels really good to withdraw from schools....its like a big F you to schools that have rejected me in a way (yes I know I am projecting), but these schools reject so many people each year, its good to reject them every so often.

03-28-08 - Money is off to SIU to hold my seat. My cycle is pretty much over, I haven't heard at all from a few schools which surprises me (especially since some I sent back in OCT). Oh well, tip back one later for the great cycle, with its ups and downs, but overall I think SIU is a awesome school and I look forward to August!

Does anybody else know of any 4th tiers that absolutely hand out the money very freely? I am trying to either get into the top most school I can, or go to a lower tier with a good scholarship. Thanks much in advance people.

I'll be interested to see what happens with you at DePaul and Miami. I was deferred at Miami already this year, and waitlisted at DePaul last year. Good luck, I'll be rooting for you.

If you want to practice in Chicago that badly, why aren't you applying to Northern Illinois? You would have a better chance of getting into Northern with your stats than you would at the schools in the actual city.

  • Sunday, December 02 2007 at 05:47 PM

What sort of scholarship did you get? That's a key for me and I'm hoping to get one. Also if you want to be near Chicago, NIU is an hour away if you want to go there on the weekends, and a lot cheaper to live. SIU is a 5 hour train ride, tickets are cheap and you can study. SIU is much cheaper to live.

Leaning towards SIU huh? I just got in today and am leaning that way too. I did undergrad there and still live in the area, so its almost a no-brainer for me, especially with the scholy. Maybe I'll see you in the fall! Carbondale is a great college town and So Ill is beautiful.

  • Thursday, March 27 2008 at 11:31 AM

Hey! Congrats on all your acceptances!! Looks like you had an amazing cycle. I just wanted to ask, did you hear anything after being more aggressive in asking for $$$? What did you say to them? I haven't heard from most schools on my list yet, but I want money and I wanted to know if you were successful in getting them to come around.... Thanks and congratulations on all the schools!!

just wanted to drop in and say hey. Fine choice with SIU. I visited there and loved the campus, did a sit in for a class and talked with some students. Seems very tight nit and everybody is friendly. If I get accepted (waitlisted right now), that is my top choice.

  • Wednesday, June 04 2008 at 07:16 PM

thanks... as far as holding out for SIU, I dont know anymore. The waitlist has over 100 people and they are already overbooked from acceptances so I\'m not holding my breath. I am pretty sure I\'ll be going to NIU unless I get a suprise letter/ call from John Marshall or SIU in the next couple of weeks. This whole law school admissions cycle has not been what I expected. I am disgusted with the ammount of time it has taken to get responses and the money I have spent reservung seats only to hear a few weeks later I\'m in somewhere else. It is almost a joke, but at least I got in somewhere, right?
