-I'm interested in copyright/media/entertainment law.
-I'll be paying for law school 100% with loans, so staying as debt-free as possible was important for me.
-I took the December LSAT and wasn't sure if I wanted to wait a year over break...so this delayed my applications and I'm sure hurt my chances for admissions/ money.
All my applications are complete, whew. Now..the waiting...
Accepted at UF today! 8 1/2 x 11 white gator skin envelope with financial aid info, acceptance letter, and immunization forms. Very excited. UF is one of my top choices. How awesome that it came first?
Checked the Stetson status checker even though it has only been a week, and it changed to Decision Mailed today. Good news a-comin'??
Got my Stetson acceptance folder in a white large envelope. Lots of information. Nothing about $$ though.
Accepted to FSU via phone call this morning. Then a small letter came in the mail. The state of Florida officially loves me!
Today I came back from SB with my first rejection-Emory. Expected...
Tulane status checker changed to "Decision has been made." From reading LSD, it seems that those that are accepted get an email the same day their status checker changes. Also, it usually changes to "Congrats!..etc" So it looks like I probably got rejected from Tulane. This is probably a good time to admit that I made a significant error on my Tulane file. Let this be a lesson to those in the 08-09 cycle...triple check your attached documents before you send them. On my addendum, I cut&pasted from another school's addendum, and somehow left "UNC" where "Tulane" should have been. Then my personal statement was about how I'm an editor with great attention to detail. I sent a revised addendum, but they couldn't remove the original (I actually asked the girl, since she seemed to be pretty nice). I kicked myself for like a week straight. Sigh. Who knows if that made or break my acceptance, though. I do have a low LSAT, and it seems that the LSAT weighs somewhat heavy with them. I'm pretty bummed, although Tulane was financially a bit out of reach. NOLA would have been fun...
Well, I figured since I hadn't heard from USC and Chicago-Kent, I was going to be WL or rejected. Today my suspicion was confirmed for Univ. South Carolina; I was WL. I am surprised--they are def. a target school; I even considered it a safety because my resume is very strong. But who cares? Unless UNC pulls through I'm gonna be a litiGATOR:)
My cycle wrapped up this week! I was shocked to get WL at UNC. Honestly, if that just happened a little earlier, I might have really thought about hopping on the WL. After Admitted Student Day at UF, I realized I'd really enjoy sticking it out here for a few more years. It's a great deal financially and academically, and...3 more years of gator football!
In other news, I got an email today congratulating me on my acceptance to Chicago-Kent. Cool, I really didn't expect another acceptance this late:)
Overall very satisfied with my cycle. Did a lot better than I thought I would with the mediocre LSAT.
