Extra Curricular Information

Shooting for the stars. My GPA is low but I have a legit addendum. I think the adcomms that actually read my application (and don't throw it in the auto-reject pile) will be willing to overlook it.

Things that will get me into schools:

*Have a Masters Degree with 4.0/4.0

*Kick arse PS and DS - but this could very well be my own subjective point of view.

*I can juggle

Now I know where I'm headed, Here's a few more things about me.

-Started a major website having to do with hotels/travel (probably NOT possible that you haven't heard of it).
-Went to U of M for undergrad and The Ross School of Business.
-Born in one country and transplanted to the US due to the political instability of my birthplace.

Despite all this I am a very functional learning disabled individual, and have obviously found ways to cope and overcome this.

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

11/17- Relatively early admit with Dean's scholarship from Depaul. Definitely will have to think this one over in the light of the larger ranking vs. money question as the other acceptances/rejections roll in.

12/13- Deferred at UMich today via their online status check.

12/14- Accepted to MSU via thin white envelope. Major Tier 4 backup, but will be interesting to see their scholarship offer that they say will be mailed no later than Feb.

Christmas card from WashU and another advertisement from Notre Dame. This school literature is crazy -Especially the ones in skinny white envelopes.

Got an acceptance from IU-B with some money. Hard to tell when I actually got it since the envelope has that umistakable and mangled lost in the mail look. Better late than never.

1/6- Got a letter from Notre Dame notifying me that I was on the provisional list. Guess only thing to do is to keep sending them continued interest letters.

1/18 - Withdrew from Indiana. Good luck to all of you that are still waiting to hear from them... Did it for you!

1/19 - Rejected from Northwestern- letter was short and sweet.

1/22 - Hmm had better days. 2 rejections waiting in the mailbox. Wasn't surprised at Uchicago... but BC? That's a shame. Guess the rumors are true. Even if you have the LSAT can't get in without at least a 3.5 GPA.

1/24 - In at Ohio State via phone call! Packet is in the mail.

1/25 - Got the controversial "Passed intial review" email from Boalt. Hope is to be had!

1/27 - Found out I was waitlisted at U of I via email this morning.

1/29 - Got what I suspect is OSU's offical paperwork. What I thought would be more like a packet, turned out to be a congratulatory letter and a couple pages that mention how to pay your tuition deposit and the Admission policies.

1/30 - Wow... I know LSN had a "Waitlist King" last cycle I think I should nix the current username and reemerge as Waitlist King II. Ok so here's the situation: Waitlisted at GW okay... whatever. But then, waitlisted at Maryland?! Whaaat? Not much to think about there- Just gonna withdraw. I think I'm going to have to write at least 5 continued interest letters. WTF!!

-Got some more literature from OSU saying they'll be keeping in close contact with me and to both check out their website and contact them with any questions. Least somebody loves me! :)

1/30 - Okay so after rereading the Asst. Deans email, I'm NOT waitlisted at UIUC. I'm on "HOLD" which I'm told is a huge improvement from being waitlisted (a.k.a. Virtual-rejection-unless-someone-they-really-want-gives-up-their spot-list). So back to pending status for UIUC.

2/2 - Just saw a tumbleweed. Oh and heard the music from High noon. Can't be good. On a more productive note, I finished a con't interest letter.

2/5 - Just informed that the Univ. Of Washington has my file as complete. Didn't know that it WASN'T?!

2/10- Ohh no. Status checker changed to Decision at Umich. And according to the buzz on LSD doesn't look good. I'm just going to prepare myself now for receiving that thin white envelope from them. Either way I'll be pleasantly surprised if it isn't- and not quite as let down when I do. *shrug

2/12- HO-L-EEEEEE SH** IN AT MICHIGAN !!!!!!!

Know what sucks? Seeing my remaining choices... no names but, EMORY for example, accepting people with 158 LSATs and sub-par GPAs when I've heard absolutely 0 from them.

2/19- UIUC Acceptance came through!

2/20 UDub ding. Found out I wasn't tree-hugger- damn.

3/2 - Big acceptance packet from Emory. 'Bout freaggin time!

3/4 - I can't speak. This morning, SUNDAY MORNING, I got a call from the Dean of Admissions at Yale Law. Because I was expecting absolutely NO ONE to call from ANY school on Sunday I was milliseconds away from choosing a irritated "Yeah???" instead of a cordial "Hello." Thank god my brain chose the latter. Everyone, I'm in arguably the best law school in the nation. Therefore NOTHING absolutely NOTHING else matters. HOLY COW. I couldn't breathe- still can't. Thanks to all of you that have watched my cycle and given me kind words of encouragement and congratulatory pats on the back. My cycle is officially over.

3/13/07- Accepted at Cornell which was a little strange as I emailed a withdrawal right after I was accepted to Yale. But the acceptance must have already been in the mail. Would have been an issue had Michigan and Cornell been the only noteworthy schools to accept me. I'm still reeling from the Yale acceptance. And in utter shock with how my options have played out.

LOL I wasn't sure I would get into Mich--honestly, I dind't have good expectations for the cycle 9thus my not putting up my lsn). I'm quite pleased so far though. I REALLY hope you get into Mich, I'd love to meet you at the ASW. Send Mich another letter reaffirming your interest and tell them that you want to stay in AA for another 3 yrs!!!!

When I found out I was deferred, the first thing I did was call the admissions office. I talked to Paul Pless, and I asked him what I could do to strengthen my application. He wanted to see my fall grades, and he suggested that I come in for a meeting. A couple of weeks later when I was back in Champaign I called and set it up. The people there are very happy to talk to you, and I'm sure that if you have a good attitude and are very interested in attending, they'll do all they can to make admission happen. Good luck to you and congrats on Ohio State!

- bopbopbop

  • Tuesday, January 30 2007 at 10:47 AM

I also got deferred from U of I. Are you going to do like "bopbopbop" and call Mr. Pless? I sent an email thanking him but I wasn't sure if calling was appropriate!? I know its competitive but I am curious to see what others are doing :)

- uart
  • Thursday, February 08 2007 at 01:17 PM

Thanks for the nice note. Yes, Ive racked up quite a few choices by now; still not sure what I did right along the way, but clearly something in there is very compelling to law schools. Even the ones I attempted to withdraw from. You mentioned markets my goal has always been to go back to Alaska, where Im from, and practice there. But I clearly have wide-open options regarding where I want to go to school in the interim, so no complaints there.

I have come across your profile a few times and seriously enjoyed reading through it. Congrats on Michigan! (Like you need to here that one more time). I also wanted to thank you for withdrawing from Indiana for me and for not sounding like a pretentious (EDIT OUT) in your additional information like some people do. lol. Good to see that there are future lawyers out there that still have a sarcastic yet classy sense of humor.

I would guess not receiving the email from Michigan was worth the wait. Where and what did you get your masters from?

- drujoe
  • Thanks!
  • Tuesday, February 20 2007 at 05:12 PM

You know, I seriously considered retaking the LSAT and actually buckling down for a year, taking a class, etc.. Then I realized that I would be perfectly happy going somewhere like Indiana. I love the midwest and am not too much of a big city girl. Anyways, look me up on facebook, etc. if you have them. What did you get your masters in? tty P.S. I sent Indiana an email telling them that you told me I could have your scholarship money... If that doesn't work, I am going to the gas station tomorrow to buy a dozen scratch offs. (fingers crossed)

  • Wednesday, February 21 2007 at 03:44 PM

hey man, don't stress too much about UW when you've got Mich. Michigan is a great school, I would say you are very lucky to be going there but we both know its not luck ... just a whole lot of hard work that paid off! For me and UW I have a feeling it had a great deal to do with my environmental law-themed personal statement and interests. I think it is an area they are trying to beef up. And actually I used the guidelines for the UW PS to write the essay I sent to every school. But I still think BC is my number 1 ... I really want to be on journal for both 2 and 3 L and all of the journals at BC are of great interest to me so that is what is drawing me there right now. Duke just might be the only place that could overtake it. Now I'm just crossing my fingers for money from BC. How about you? Would you take any of your other acceptances or pendings over UM? (excluding yale, thats an obvious yes...) ... Cornell is nice and small, I'm actually taking a class where I have to use the law library right now, and the facilities are real nice ... but then again I have heard the UM law quad is second to none if you like the old style buildings. Ahhhh decisions decisions. Anyways congrats on a great cycle so far ... you stayed so positive through the first part of the acceptance rush, I was real happy to see UM come through for you. OK back to writing this stupid essay. Good luck.

Holy CRAP. CONGRATS on Michigan! I'm so excited for you! Are they a top choice at the moment? While I was upset at being rejected, I was pretty much expecting it with my numbers. UCLA would be an incredible surprise if I somehow managed it, though. :) Right now, scholarships aside, University of the Pacific is my top choice. I like California, and when I visited 2 years ago, I loved UoP's feel. If only they could compete with Hamline's scholarship offer. I want to go into public interest work, so scholarships are a fairly large factor for me. I like DePaul, too, except I emailed the admissions director over a week ago asking for reconsideration for more scholarship money and I haven't heard anything back yet which is frustrating. We'll see. I visit Pacific this coming Friday! Congrats again on Michigan. You have some fantastic options. Oh. . .and don't rail on people with 158 LSATs. I'm one of them! ;) Okay, so if I got into Emory and you railed on me, I don't think it'd bother me too much anyway. Ack, enough babbling. . .I need to figure out how to fill out NeedAccess since UCLA wasn't kind enough to give me a decision before their financial aid deadline (2 March). Yick.

  • Monday, February 26 2007 at 08:28 AM

Yeah it'll be interesting to see how the minor difference affects us. You're right that I put myself at a disadvantage by applying later, but I thought it very important to include my fall grades to prove my recent upward trend as well as a third recommendation that I got in January. Regarding Emory, I like it... the campus is beautiful, quality of life is high, the location in a suburb but close to everywhere you'd want to go in Atlanta is perfect. I personally want to be in DC/VA or the Midwest though, so I decided not to apply. I hear the profs are great in the law school, but career services and the alum network are lacking a bit if you're not in the top half of your class. Feel free to email me with any specific questions.

What's your learning disability? I hope you feel comfortable sharing this, as it might add a great deal of insight into the admissions process / cycles.

Yeah, your excitement came out a little bit in your play by play. A bit. I grew up 20 minutes from Yale in Milford, CT, and I actually like New Haven a lot now that I've been out for a while. (Most people from my hometown are bitter towards Yale/NH.) I also have a friend who is at Yale now and she loves it. UofM put me on their waitlist, so I'm doing everything I can to get to the top of their waitlist. I'm visiting on March 16th, sent in a letter of interest, a couple letters of recommendation, and will write another letter after visiting. I have a couple friends there as well, so I'm doing everything I can to keep them reminded of my application.

Hi! I'm a newbie but I just wanted to say congrats on the top law school in the nation! You must be thrilled.

  • Tuesday, March 06 2007 at 04:30 PM

Geez, Data. . .what can I say? I used up all my excitement on your Michigan acceptance. So how about just a little, "good job" from me, then? :) Seriously, I'm so happy for you. I love seeing my online buddies get into their number one choice of school (Bouzie hasn't gotten in yet, but he practically grabbed me off the ground when we were at Pacific after he found out about his LSAT score). Promise you won't forget the little people (me, mainly) when you're off saving the world? YAY, DATA!! :)

Its just taking forever to hear back from schools! Unfortunately, I got rejected from UT today. That is pretty depressing. I know I had barely a chance, but the prospect of leaving behind everyone and everything behind (long time boyfriend included) that I have known for 24 years really sucks. It was pouring down rain when I opened the letter in my car so I guess that is appropriate. lol

  • Wednesday, March 14 2007 at 11:30 AM

Woah, wait just a minute... "you southerners" are bitter?? Just because I'm going to school down here doesn't mean I forgot my northern Ohio roots. The Civil War (or The War of Northern Aggression as some call it down here, haha) turned out as it should have and most of Emory would agree since we actually have just as many NY/NJ students as GA students. Though if I end up at W&L who knows how I'll feel in three years ;-)

I also wanted to get out of Michigan if at all possible...I have lived within 20 minutes of A2 since I was three...it is time for a change. I was confused by your comment though. State is in the fourth tier, and Wayne is in the third (gotta have safeties), but everywhere else is in the top 50. I'm hoping to stay in the Big Ten, so I can watch at least one Michigan game while I'm in law school (the sad part is that this is only half a joke).

- gneumann
  • Thanks!
  • Monday, March 19 2007 at 07:39 PM

Hey man, thanks for the comments! You did awesome yourself... that Yale acceptance is incredible. I'm leaning heavily towards USD, but Miami or an NYC school are still possibilities as well. Time will tell. You're lucky you don't have a decision to make... haha

  • I am to please.
  • Tuesday, March 20 2007 at 08:16 AM

Speaking of "I am to please", I read a sign above a convenience store toilet that once read, "We aim to please. You aim too, please". This urinary blip has been the source of my legal inspiration for many years now. Okay, I'm a buffoon, but at any rate, thanks. I'll likely be attending Washburn. It's no Yail, which was my fourth choice behind Brown University Law and Princeton Law. I haven't heard anything back from those f-bags yet, so I guess I'll be a sneaka in Topeka (it's all I could think of that rhymed with Topeka at that given moment three seconds ago). It makes a lot more sense financially for me and the family--namely me. Best of luck to you, sir. Looks like you're jamming a foot in this cycle's arse. Coup deaux's to you.

I loved Emory when I started, but quite frankly they haven't done much to impress me. They said I'd have my scholarship in hand by Mid-March, which clearly I do not have. The emails they send are quite snippy as well. Bama on the other hand gave me full tuition, flew me down there and put me up in a super nice hotel, is giving me a free laptop, helping me out with my apartment security deposit since moving is going to be financially draining for me, has a domestic violence clinic (which is what I want to do specifically), and literally every single person I met in the area and on campus was SO friendly. The apartments I'm looking at are wonderful, the weather is great, the southern architecture is georgeous, and of course it's SEC football. How can I pass that up???

- ajlrf03
  • Decisions...
  • Tuesday, March 20 2007 at 07:29 PM

Yeah, I haven't made any decisions yet.. I've narrowed it down to GW and Emory (but I am also waiting for 6 schools). Emory's scholarship blew me away tonight, so I'm almost leaning that way, but I've got some ASWs to check out. If I somehow get Penn (and I won't), then I am going.

Randomly surfing this site and came across your profile... all I can say is, wow!! I bet all those schools that waitlisted/rejected you would feel pretty silly if they saw your profile. ;) So, Yale, huh... awesome. You might arguably be the most deserving of a YLS acceptance on this site. Way to show the LSAT gunners! Will I see you at the April ASW?
