19oct07 - Disappointed in LSAT. Applying to some schools now. Retaking in December.
28oct07 - And we're off! (finally)
5nov07 - Accepted to Ave Maria with a full-tuition scholarship. Applying there was more a karma-motivated decision, as they were the first school to send me a fee waiver.
08dec07 - In at Penn State. Standard-sized envelope sent to permanent address. $15,000/yr provided I stay in the top half of the class. I'm going to law school!
13dec07 - My roommate called and told me that she saw an ad for Rock of Love 2 (with Bret Michaels) and that I got a big envelope that says "Welcome to DePaul." These two pieces of news are equally exciting to me. Yay Chicago-land admit, and yay Bret Michaels finding love...again.
14dec07 - In at Rutgers-Camden via an e-mail from an alumnus saying they were impressed with my personal statement. Admissions packet and Rutgers Law t-shirt are being mailed soon. I love free stuff. Well played, Rutgers.
21dec07 - So what happens when you don't study for September and then wait a couple months, not studying, and retake in December? You end up with a 167.
03jan08 - In at UPitt via an e-mail from a Prof. Chew. Happy New Year! I've been in Shanghai for a few weeks now, so I have no idea what's happening on the snail mail front.
11jan08 - Came back to my apartment to find an acceptance to Villanova, which came in a thin, white envelope. Letter dated December 12. Also received a BUNCH of letters from UPitt and Rutgers (and an awesome, bright red t-shirt), and both schools offered scholarships. Also looked at my DePaul packet, which had scholarship information. All scholarships are renewable.
(later that day...) Got an odd e-mail from the Dean of Chicago-Kent saying that he "just learned from the admissions office that [I] should be receiving an acceptance letter soon." So...I guess I got in. What a strange, strange way to inform someone of their acceptance.
(Letter from Kent came 18jan. $20,000/yr if I keep a 3.25. Excellentness. Kent just shot up in the personal rankings of sunshinedust. I do heart Chicago.)
15jan08 - Acceptance from Seton Hall with $20,000/yr. Regular envelope with 5 pages inside (letter dated 11 Jan). You know, I don't know how serious I was about Seton Hall before this came, but the scholarship definitely put it in the running. Who said money can't buy love.
17jan08 - E-mail from someone at Rutgers-Newark saying that "the Admissions Committee has voted to admit you to Rutgers School of Law - Newark for the fall 2008 entering class." That sounded less like I was accepted and more like I was being declared the winner of Survivor: Newark. At any rate, letter and packages are being mailed tomorrow.
(later that day...) E-mail from the assistant dean at Baylor. For some reason (which I doubt I'll ever figure out), I was awarded a full tuition scholarship, renewable all three years as long as I maintain a 2.00. Interesting. I just wish I didn't dislike warm weather so much.
17jan08 - In at SLU via a large envelope. Awesome (though oddly small) silver SLU Law pen as well. Excellent. Packets from Rutgers-Newark (offering $6,000/yr) and Baylor also came today.
24jan08 - Call from the assistant dean at Loyola, I'm in! Hoorah. LUC has been one of my top choices all along. Letter is being mailed today. If anyone is wondering, I did write the "Why Loyola?" optional essay. (Letter from Loyola came a week and a half later, $15,000/yr if I keep a 3.00)
18jan08 - Acceptance packed from Temple came in the mail, letter date 24jan. $15,000/yr if I keep a 2.50. Damn you, Temple, as if I wasn't confused enough already. These great offers shall make for a tough decision.
14feb08 - Got some Valentine's Day love from Case. Actually, I never got a "complete" notice, so I e-mailed them, and a few hours later I got an e-mail saying I was accepted. Odd...
12mar08 - With an e-mail acceptance from San Diego, my cycle is pretty much done. Decisions, decisions.
26mar08 - IN AT IOWA (by e-mail, letter to be mailed soon)!! Hoorah!
22apr08 - After I withdrew, DePaul increased my scholarship amount to $20,000/yr. Not quite enough to tempt me away from Iowa.
20jun08 - Seton Hall increased their offer to $30,000/yr, still not enough to sway me from going to Iowa.
