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.
