ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

Definitely already ready for this process to be over. Hopefully everything will go well. I wish everyone well with all their applications.

**************************
I got way too many fee waivers to name...but I barely used any of them. $12 for law school reports adds up even if the application is free.

All waivers here are merit based. Michigan and Cornell sent by mail. Campbell by e-mail. George Mason and Washington and Lee were hidden on LSAC. I never received anything from either school. EDIT: I did finally get a package from W&L right before Thanksgiving.

***************************

11/14/06- I got my first acceptance today and I am so excited!!!

Just received fee waivers from WUSTL and Emory over Thanksgiving and decided to send those out last minute.

12/21/06- Just got an acceptance letter from Washington and Lee. I'm really suprised because it was a very quick turn around. Still anxious to hear from some more schools though.

1/1/07- I was out of town for Chrismas break and came home to an acceptance from Howard along with a $20,000/yr merit based scholarship. Down side, I have to maintain a certain GPA to keep it. But it's a great option because it is basically full tuition (tuition this year is $19,800)

1/5/07- Phone call to Cornell verifying I was complete. Not sure exactly when I went complete though. They mistyped my e-mail address and were not able to get in contact with me. I hope I went complete before Christmas.

1/10/07- Status checker changed to decision at Michigan.

1/13/07- Received $15,000/yr renewable Honor Scholarship from W&L. I have to maintain a 3.0 GPA to keep it. The scholarship would probably knock out only about half of my tuition but it's another great option...especially considering it's a top 25 law school.
..................................................
On a side note I have learned that sending out apps early in the application cycle in no way means that you will be hearing back anytime soon from any school. Waiting sucks...especially when it's creeping up on 15 weeks (thanks UVA...I hope they didn't forget that I applied).
..................................................
1/16/07-Received acceptance letter today from Emory.

1/19/07-Rejection letter from Michigan.

********************************
Well it has been 10+ weeks of waiting at every school I have applied to (with the exception of UNC, WUSTL, and Cornell) and I must say that I really am just beyond over this whole process. Considering the fact that I sent my apps off very early in the process, the fact that I still have 8 pending apps is driving me insane. I really would just rather know at this point so I can stop being so obsessed with my mail and e-mail. But unfortunately, I think I'm in this one for the long haul. (No news is GOOD news though).

********************************
2/3/07- Acceptance letter from Carolina

2/9/07- Wailisted at Duke via e-mail

Still haven't heard anything from UVA and it's making me nervous...it's been almost 5 months.

2/14/07-Scholarship amount listed for Campbell is an estimate...received a full tuition scholarship.

2/20/07-Accepted at WVU via phone call.

2/28/07- Looks like I'm going into March still waiting on 6 decisions. I'm so frustrated and disheartened with this whole process right now.

3/1/07- Status checker finally updated to decision mailed at UVA. I really have no idea what to expect. Whatever the decision I'm just happy that the long wait is finally over for me.

3/1/07- Received a letter today from UVA placing me on the general waitlist.

3/11/07- I was out of town and came home to a rejection from GWU and a waitlist from GMU.

And I visited Howard this weekend...not really impressed. I'm so lost as to what to do right now.

3/12/07-Seriously considering taking a year off and trying again next year. I think the fact that I was only 20 when I applied or my lack of post u-grad work experience or that I went to a crappy u-grad may have contributed to some of my decisions. The idea of doing this all over again (especially studying for the LSAT) makes me so depressed though. I don't know what to do.

3/13/07- So my boyfriend and I had a bet about how many schools I would get into. He said 11, I said 9. Clearly we were both wrong (but I still won). LOL. I'm prob not gonna make him pay on the bet though cuz I'm sure I have driven him near insanity during this whole process.

Now the issue is deciding where to go with so little time to make a decision. I wonder if schools ever give extensions on seat deposits???

3/14/07-Got a letter today from Howard stating that in order for me to keep my scholarship I would have to stay in the top 5% of my class. Needless to say I am hardly considering taking it anymore. I really think I'm just going to try again next cycle. None of the schools I have been accpeted are really for me.

Note: For some reason everyone now thinks I'm worried about my age. I'm not in the least and actually really excited to have been given such an opportunity this early in my life. I'm actually not worried about anything, just deciding what I'm going to do next year and really excited that I have the opportunity to be in control of what I do. You guys give me advice like I'm in need of some serious counseling...LOL. But thanks for all the input. Right now I'm just making a personal decision based on no one or nothing else but me.

3/19/07-Received phone call from GMU congratulating me on my acceptance. Wonder why they wailisted me just a week ago. Anywho I guess they never got my withdrawal. I think I'll consider them.

3/20/07-Well I think I am going to pay my deposit at W&L. I already started prepping for the LSAT and plan to re-take in June. I've been very happy with the PT scores I've been getting so hopefully I'll be re-applying next cycle. If for some strange reason I bomb the test, I'm thinking I'll be at W&L (but I'm not going to bomb...prayerfully). Just trying to keep all my options open.

Received an e-mail today from Emory offering me a $54,000 scholarship.

3/23/07-Went to decision at Cornell

3/24/07-Received a letter from Cornell placing me on reserve.

3/30/07-Well I'm probably not going to pay the seat deposit at W&L next week. If I pay one anywhere, it will be Emory even though I'm not that fond of ATL. But I've already basically decided that I'll probably be taking this year off pending the June LSAT. It's such a relief to have made a decision. Good luck to everybody...and stay posted for any new updates.

Received an e-mail from WUSTL placing me on the waitlist and also stating that they accepted too many people this cycle and don't plan on taking any people off the waitlist this year...I honestly don't care.

4/3/07-Received an e-mail from UNC awarding $3,000/academic year. Even though I do get in-state tuition, I am not feeling this offer and will be withdrawing in the very near future.

4/4/07-Patiently waiting on my Penn rejection (even though they said I would have it by April 1) so that I can focus on re-marketing myself for next year's cycle (and graduating!!!!)

4/11/07- Finally got my rejection letter from Penn...it sure took long enough. Now I can finally say my cycle is over...thank God. I don't really care about waitlists. What a relief!!!!

4/12/07- Decided to drop my deposit at Emory tomorrow as opposed to UNC. $250 is a lot of money for me. Oh well. And I'm really anxious to get the June LSAT over with.

I'm trying to find something REALLY exciting to do in my year off. If anybody has any suggestions I'm def open. I need some ideas (especially since it's so late).

Aww thank you. Girl I wish I had that 175 as well...my stats are borderline, but according to friends of mine at hls and yls who have been watching cycles for years, I will get into a good school, prolly a t14 (I PRAY!). We"ll see though. Honestly, I have a feeling that adcoms save a lot of URMs for the middle of the cycle. Hoping that's the case, I've been complete at GULC for almost a full month!

  • Missed your note last month
  • Tuesday, December 19 2006 at 03:50 PM

You asked about my top choices-ideally, it would be the University of Minnesota, as far as ranking is concerned. However, I have a very successful full-time career, and don't want to give up my job, so the part-time programs at University of St. Thomas, William Mitchell and Hamline are ideal. Plus, better financial aid. My family is all over the country, that's why my law school choices are. Anyway, that's probably more than you wanted to know. Thanks for asking.

you are doing awesome so far!! dont worry about UM..you are yet to hear back from the other big ones.. and I am sure ATLEAST 1 of those will pick you. (Emory already has!) so re-word it.. atleast two i mean. :) That Howard offer is extremely compelling. What have you thought about it. It would be a tough decision between no debt JD and 100K JD from a tier 1. If I was put in that situation i am not sure what I would do.. (feel free to email offline)

Atleast you got some great acceptances under your belt!:)

Thanks for the well wishes! It sucks to have to wait so long, but it'll all be over in a couple of months (barring having to wait it out on waitlists). Yes, I'm STILL waiting on Michigan. I don't know if that will ever get resolved. As far as your last question, I am really really really interested in Emory all of a sudden. It wasn't really on my radar at the beginning of the cycle, but I've been learning more and more about it and I'm really excited about getting accepted and possibly attending. I think it's probably the only school that I have a decent shot at and would love to attend. What's your top choice so far?

I've heard no news from UVA, and I've been complete for almost as long as you. I'm kinda bummed. I figure, after being held at Columbia and Harvard, I won't be hearing from anyone else (unless it's a ding) until the April at the earliest. :(

Everyone's saying that the top schools are going to be going to the waitlist a lot this year, so I think you got a good shot.

Also, I'm pretty sure Duke will go to its wl--they are going to get a lot of withdrawls due to the PT thing. They haven't even gotten back to me yet...so I feel you with the waiting. I just want this cycle to be over and figure out where I'll be in the fall.

  • Friday, February 23 2007 at 02:21 AM

I haven't withdrawn from Georgetown yet. I'll probably end up not doing it. I just don't really like the whole concept of waitlists because you get your hopes up and it just drags this process out even more and I'm ready for it to be over with. I'll probably just stay on and treat it in my mind as a rejection. I still can't believe you haven't heard from UVA yet. I guess we can take that as a good sign. I still have a feeling that some good things are yet to come for us. Let's hope.

Yeah, Ill be in miami so ill miss the open house but I go here for undergrad now and to be quite honest Howard Law's campus was not impressive to me at all. The library was very nice but thats about it. I think i mightve had enough of the "black college experience" in undergrad however for those who werent as fortunate, I would highly recommend Howard for law school... And youre right, DC is ultra-expensive for no reason but the living expenses arent as bad when your not payin for school, lol.

  • Campbell
  • Thursday, March 01 2007 at 07:32 AM

I am seriously considering the school. I'm thinking of practicing in NC, so Campbell would be a good school for a person looking to stay local. I visited the school and liked the small school/town feel. Buies Creek might be a shock if you're used to a living in a city, but it is perfect for me and my family. I grew up in a town about the size of Buies Creek. The major worry I have is the future location of the school. In my interview, they mentioned the law school may be relocating to Raleigh, which would remove it from consideration for me. As for curriculum, trial advocacy seems to be their bread and butter.

You've gotten into some great schools, and even though the rejections are a shock to the system, don't let it make you doubt yourself. You're obviously an accomplished and intelligent woman to be going through all this at 20 - don't stop now! Check out LSD thread on continued letters of interest if you really want to get in GMU or your other WL/Def schools. Stay blessed!

  • Top Choice
  • Monday, March 12 2007 at 07:45 PM

Well, my top choice is my SUPER reach - Temple - but of the reach/target schools, Howard is #1. I visited when I was freshman in college and then again this past November. I have friends that attend now and I really would like to live and work in DC. I've always heard great things about the faculty and checked NALP for recruiting - looks promising, so hopefully my letter of interest to Dean McGahee helps me out. And you don't sound crazy LOL...I've been freaking out over financial aid on LSD for weeks now :)

Nor do I pretend to be. I also do not know what you are trying to do or what your goal is. But I do know that you have been accepted to some very nice schools and waitlisted by some even nicer schools. I believe that you should at least send in a deposit and hold out for one of your T14 waitlist schools and after that time if you decide you would much rather take some time off and improve your candidacy with the hopes of immediate T14 or higher admission then do not attend a school in the fall. But I do not think that you should just give up on the entire process solely due to a few let downs. You seem like a very intelligent young lady and like someone said before at 20, you must have a good head on your shoulders. Maybe you could even travel the world a bit. I wished I would have done more of that in my time off, but I think you will be fine. I wish you the best and I hope that you do what is best for you this fall.

yeah it is indeed real as to much everyone's suprise on here and to anyone else (esp prof at my school). campbell hasnt even sent me fin aid award packet more over their minority is EXTREMELY low like only one black person graduated in 06 kinda low....as far as w*L i got offered 13 tho a year and they are supposed to be mailing me the fin aid award packet this week...as far as from the evironment and community of the schoool i would love that (based on website/brochure) but financially i wouuld think it would be harder on me b/c i cant rely on my parents b/c they are both on disablity and cant give me any money to support me not even in groceries so i dont know how would deal with living expenses and what not..i dont have a car..and coming from a no name school like fmu i dont think it prepared me for the academic level at w8L then again i've heard its easier at those schools versus t4/t3 schools so i'm just really confused and uncertain about alot of things but i think @ the top of my list is nccu, w&l, and usc

I didn't know you were only 20. I think your age could have played a minor role...I say minor only bc there are also some ppl on lsn your age that have faired better. However, I would definitely take some time off. Relax!!! You are only 20! This will be your only chance to take time off. I totally understand that the prospect of studying for the lsat turns you off, but it may make things better for you and give you options that you are truly excited about. If you don't like any of your schools, you won't be happy and may not do well enough to transfer. I wouldn't risk it. Do what's best for you!!!

happy belated birthday!!!! girl, i'm on my year off now and while my job sucks, my brain is getting much needed rest and now i'm *ready* to go back to school (though i'm sure i'll change my mind a lot during 1L, lol). Kinda leaning towards CLS...but I loved Mich during my visit and is a DEFINITE contender. I'm visiting UVa tomorrow, so hopefully they will present me with something to get me more excited about them. I'm so surprised that you haven't heard from WUSTL yet, I was sure you'd be in by now. And I hope you Cornell app gives you a super positive decision!

Write a letter of continued interest to Cornell, especially if they are your first choice.

One last chance??? It sounds like I'm fighting for my life or something. I said none of the schools I have been accepted at are for me, not that they weren't ranked high enough. Cornell is t-14 but it isn't for me either.

  • Thursday, March 15 2007 at 08:24 PM

I'll be praying for you too! I hope you make the right choice for you! I know I'm gonna go next year, with me if i get out of school mode I know i'll never want to come back haha.... I'm deciding between Boston College , W&L, and Emory.. ... fordham's out just cause I'm not one who really wants to live in NYC. I'm really really really hoping to get into Cornell.. its my top choice right now...! but if i got into any of the top schools I have left I'd be excited to go ofcourse! buut im visiting W&L and BC soon and I saw Emory.. I think I'll be happy at any of these schools... hey we both still got a chance of getting off some of these waitlists too!

- mowillystyle
  • Hey!
  • Sunday, March 18 2007 at 07:03 AM

What's goin on? I can totally feel where you're comin' from about now really feelin' the schools that you're accepted at? I'm not really either, but I just can't wait another year and there is no way I'm going through that LSAT process again. Just not happening. I don't really have a preference as far as practicing. I can see myself living in NYC, LA, SF, or Atlanta. And that's pretty much it. I'm really hoping I get into USC or off of the Emory waitlist. I still really want to go there.

WOW! Congrats on the money from Emory. I am insanely jealous. Does the money change your mind about it?

  • Hey
  • Wednesday, March 21 2007 at 03:15 PM

Yay for us getting money at Emory !: )...Hey so you're retaking in June and then if you do poorly ( which i doubt you will! :)) you'll go to W&L?? What are you going to do for the year if you end up doing really well?? and that is such a good idea I sort of want to consider retaking in JUne to see if i can do better .

Thanks for letting me know! looks like I won't be taking the lsat! I hope your decision becomes easier for you!:) I'm sure whatever you decide will work out!

  • Hey girl
  • Monday, April 09 2007 at 07:12 PM

I'm over taking the lsat lol.. after applying to so many schools and now trying to get off waitlists I am spent... I sent in a deposit to W&L due to their early date and ... but I think if I don't get off any waitlists I'll be at Emory in the fall and I'm pretty happy about it! I visited and liked it there and could see myself being happy 3 years there.. but I still hope to get off a waitlist..... what about you?/ what about decided??

- mowillystyle
  • lol sorry
  • Monday, April 09 2007 at 07:13 PM

I don't know why that message came out so incoherent lol.. bottom line.. no waitlists accept me I'm going to Emory. What decisions have you made? about what you're going to do?

  • What to do...
  • Tuesday, April 10 2007 at 02:28 AM

I can't believe this isn't over yet. I just don't have any expectations anymore. And WTH is up with Penn? They should have been gotten back to you. This whole cycle is a mess. Can you believe we're thinkin' about signing up for this again? I'm honestly still so confused about deposits. I'm debating on whether or not to send in my deposit to Fordham or not. I'm going to wait until Thursday and see if anything good happens and I know it's only $200, but I rather buy a new iPod, LOL. And if I'm definitely re-taking the LSAT in June (unless Michigan comes through in the meantime). So good luck to us with that.

Thanks for the kind words. That's probably the realest advice anybody has given me all cycle. You're too young to be so wise, LOL! I've decided I'm going to reapply just because I KNOW that I can do better. I didn't give the LSAT my all. My real LSAT score is the same as when I took it cold for the first time and I sorta half-assed it and only took like 3 practice tests, so I owe it to myself to actually try. I'm going to sign up for a class (that's the only way I'm going to study) and take it in September/October. So hopefully we'll be cycle buddies again next year. And this time it'll be ALOT more enjoyable because of all the acceptances we're going to get, LOL.

Hey! I got accepted to a program to teach English in Brazil (Rio) for the upcoming year. I'll be leaving in mid-October right after the LSAT. I'm so excited. It definitely made the decision to reapply a lot easier. Have you considered doing something abroad like that? Most of the people that I know that have done it have had wonderful experiences. Something to consider.
