Was scoring higher on LSAT than my crappy sept score.
Retaking and hoping for atleast 5-7 more points in December.
finished all apps listed
just have to mail in cert letters
Can't wait for some good decisions! Been looking forward to this for a long time!
12-08-07 complete at Cuse! Can't wait to get my Dec LSAT results back.
12-20-07 Finally got my LSAT score back. 159!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
12-26-07: Hope all had a great Christmas and santa brought all the presents (acceptances) wanted. I've decided on 5 more schools to apply to:
3-Target -St. John's
5-Penn State or Pitt
6-probably a Chicago school... not sure which one
12-30-07: Added my final schools. Thinking I've spend enough money to buy a small island on these apps by now...
01-06-08:Happy new year to all! Called all schools last week to see what they needed to go complete feels like its taking forever... stupid Dec LSAT. Suffolk let me know they req Dean's cert (which I didn't know). So today I took it to the dean's office and they told me it will be 2 weeks til he gets around to it! Geeze!
01-17-08: First acceptance today from Rutgers Newark! WOOT! I'm going to law school next year. Also, finally went complete at Suffolk.
01-18-08: Wow! Good week this week. In at IUIPUI and NESL. IUIPUI came in an email and NESL came in big white packet via snail mail.
01-19-08: SWEET! In at cuse today via snail mail large packet. Cool bumper sticker and T-shirt included. I'm feeling so blessed!
01-21-08: snail mail from Cal Western acceptance letter! This week was great!
01-22-08: In at U of Pacific. Came in large snail mail packet. Stoked about that one. I know Sacramento isn't exactly the warmest place on Earth but it has got to be better than this midwestern weather! Also went complete at American (not holding my breath though)
01-24-08: Complete at Wisco today and in at Penn State. WOOOO! This cycle is going great. Also got letters from U of Pac and Cali Western saying they will cover some costs if I fly out to visit. Looks like I may see some sunny Cali days soon! Feeling so blessed!
01-26-08: In at Quinnipiac and Hofstra with $$. Hofstra came in small snail mail envelope Quinn came via email. Since I'm in at a CT school guess I'll have to take up polo or something uppety like that ;) Also after emailing Northeastern about going complete, a day later they send me a complete email... interesting. Lost in the shuffle perhaps?
01-28-08: Small snail mail letter today from NYLS letting me know of acceptance and scholarship. YES! Even with the scholarship it is still an expensive school, but I'll consider it.
02-01-08: Got some scholarship offers. Still don't have a clue where I want to go. I'm really stoked to hear from St. John's, Case, Buffalo, American, and U of Wisco. But I'm also really surprised I got in everywhere I did!
02-02-08: In at Suffolk today! Yes! Came in snail mail large white packet. Nice finish to a long day of mock trial. Uggh!
02-04-08: In at Pace today with $$$. Nice! Don't know much about the school though.
02-07-08: In at Case today via email. So excited! This is a top choice of mine so very very good news!
02-08-08: In at Albany via short email. BUff and St.John's via snail mail large packets. This cycle is going so well I can't even believe it!
02-11-08: In at Loyola Chi via call from the Dean. How cool! Cycle is wrapping up for me pretty soon. The schools left are my top choices, so we'll have to see what happens.
02-15-08: In at CUNY today via large snail mail packet. Seems like a bargain, but I've read some pretty nasty things about location and overall negative physical attributes of the campus. Right now (unless I hear back positive from NEU, WISCO, or American) it will most likely be Case/Rutgers/or Pacific for next year.
02-18-08: Just got over a whopper of a flu. Completely wiped me out. I've been a bit worried about NEU so I called them and left a message inquiring about the status of my app. I know I'm complete but haven't heard anything else. NEU is one of my top choices. Also WISCO said my decision letter is in the mail. YIKES! It could easily go either way. I'll be praying for a positive though. I'm going back to recouping from this deathly illness now. . .
02-21-08: Finally over that terrible flu. Heard back from Wisco today via small snail mail letter-Waitlist. Bummer. I'm betting their waitlist is pretty fat so I'm not putting any money on me having a shot there. Too bad cause its a pretty neat place. Oh well. I still have American and NEU to hear back from.
02-22-08: Finally heard back from American via small snail mail letter -Waitlist. Thats 2 WL in 2 days! Oh well, I'm still anxious to hear from NEU. If I don't hear positive from NEU I'll probably be at Case next year.
03-04-08: Called NEU, U of I, and Kent today out of frustration. NEU said I'll have my decision by April 15th... hope they'll let the other schools know since their deadlines are like April 01. Kent said my decision should be coming my way soon. U of I said my application has been 'held' and will be reviewed again in a few weeks. Pretty frustrating again as most school deposit deadlines are Aprilish.
03-05-08: Cool email from Case saying I have a scholarship of 9k a year. It's conditional on maintaing a 2.33 GPA. Not too shabby! They're baiting the hook and I will most likely bite.
04-04-08: Went and visited Case and Loyola over spring break. Both schools were neat in their own way. Case is beautiful and right now I'm 99% set for CWRU for next year. I've sent my deposit in and everything.
04-08-08: email today from Case saying they can actually give more scholly than before. That's such great news!
04-10-08: WL today from NEU. Not really surprised... or concerned.
04-22-08: Called Chi Kent today they said no decision yet. Geeze. They are taking forever. I'm glad they were not one of my top choices, I'd be dying.
04-25-08: letter from Kent=Deferred. Not upset about it. They took way too long though.
04-10-08: just got letter from U of I today dated 04-10 =rejected. Not really upset about it. Keeping me humble I suppose.
***All scholarship info is yearly***
Please make any suggestions or comments about schools or school selection.
Any person who goes through the horrible process of applying to law school deserves to get in somewhere wonderful. GOOD LUCK to all!
