*************************************************
Detailed Status
*************************************************

02-03-08: Shifted through mail and found a card from TJSL inviting me to admitted student day. After that, I was confused and hopeful. Then shifted through more mail and found a small white envelope from TJSL with an actual acceptance letter.
02-04-08: Received information about a scholarship award renewable each year. Great news.
02-22-08: Received a big envelope from McGeorge with an acceptance letter in a nice glossy burgundy folder.
02-23-08: Received a letter notifying me that I was awarded a renewable scholarship because of my extensive professional experience in engineering.
02-29-08: Received crappy news from SCU that I was not considered for admission. I was puzzled by their decision considering I had extensive engineering experience and hopes to study in their IP program. Oh well, I guess it's not meant to be.
03-04-08: Received more crappy news in a cliche'ish rejection letter from Loyola, which is a school I had hoped to attend, since it's near home and in a good IP market. My chances were slim, so I guess it's not meant to be either.
03-17-08: Received a white envelope from USF, but was thicker than a rejection letter so I assumed something better to come. Found out it was a waitlist form, so I'm still in it. Though, the waitlist seems extensive, so I'm assuming my chances are still slim. They have a great IP program up in the BAY, but we'll see if my name gets called one day.
03-20-08: Received a phone call from the 619, so I decided to answer. It was Shawnessy from admissions at CWSL telling I was admitted to their school. So, we'll see further what their formal letter says and could include.
03-27-08: Checked online at Southwestern and it stated that I was sent an offer to be put on their Waiting List. Darn it!

...more to come

Did you got to UCI? My cousin went there.

I did go to UCI (99-01). I may have known your cousin, who knows. Thanks.

Well, my cousin was Latin & History double major, but 2 of his roomates were engineering. They graduated in 2002 and 2003 so you probably didn't have any classes together. Best of luck to you this cycle. Are you thinking about IP law?

Rock on

Blueprint? I took their class and ended up getting the same score as my first diagnostic. Oh well. At least the teacher was cute. Anyways, good luck with your apps. We've got a lot of same schools.

Good luck!

We are numbers twins and applying to some of the same schools. Are you going to wait to hear back from schools and then defer for next year or are you withdrawing your applications?

I read that UCI is starting a law school. Should be a good one. With the schools top tier reputation, there will be a lot of students who would like to study law in the O.C.

No Acceptances Yet?
Wednesday, August 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Best of luck.

Cycle
Tuesday, October 24 2006 at 08:00 PM

Are your apps still pending for this cycle? Or re-applying for 2008? Good luck either way.

I didnt receive any scholarship info either..I am kind of hoping that that will come in the mail later? Anyhow, congrats on your acceptance.

congrats

on tjsl!

WTF?
Friday, October 26 2007 at 08:00 PM

You still haven't heard from SCU? IMHO you should be a shoe-in for their IP program. Hopefully you hear from them soon. Good Luck!

Congrats on your acceptances!
Tuesday, December 26 2006 at 07:00 PM

Just came across your profile (we have similar numbers) and wanted to wish you luck on your cycle. Looks like you are off to a great start!

Congrats!

Hi Rolando, Congrats on your acceptance to Thomas Jefferson! I saw your profile, and wanted to say hello. How did TJSL inform you of your acceptance? I also applied and I want to know what to expect from them. I'm also a graduate from UCI and I'm always happy to see fellow alumni on this site! I wish you great luck on your apps:)

Thanks
Tuesday, January 08 2008 at 07:00 PM

for the encouraging words. Hey, noticed your a UCI guy. I live and work in Irvine!

Hello
Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

I like TJSL, i'm attending the admitted students day on March 29th. I'm just waiting for see how much they will award me. I would really love to go to Southwestern because I would get to move back to LA, but I'm greatful the TJSL is giving me a chance. How are your apps going?

Loyola
Monday, February 25 2008 at 07:00 PM

Just updated Loyola, not good news :(

Have you decided?
Thursday, February 28 2008 at 07:00 PM

I saw that we are similar in GPA and Major... I hope you get into a school you wish for bro. Have you decided where to go realistically?

Southwestern
Sunday, January 20 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Southwestern. How did you hear from them about getting off the waitlist?
