12/07: Took the LSAT and received a 143. I definitely need to take it again.
10/08: Getting ready for the LSAT on Saturday...hopefully I do better!
10/07/08: Sent in my application to Temple. One down, many, many more to go!
10/12/08: Sent in my application to Stetson.
10/13/08: Sent in my application to Rutgers-Camden.
10/14/08: Sent in my application to the University of Dayton.
10/15/08-10/23/08: I stopped keeping track of when I sent these, but I applied to Duquesne, U. of Baltimore, Michigan State, Widener, and Kansas. I picked Kansas because they have a summer start option, which would be extremely beneficial to me.
10/24/08: Got my LSAT score and only scored a 146! I am so upset and disappointed! I expected slightly higher since my practice tests were higher.
11/5/08: Spoke to the Cleveland-Marshall admissions recruiter who basically told me my chances of getting into CM were slim to none. It just made my day...not! I'm still applying there, though, since it's free.
11/9/08: Sent application to Toledo because I was able to write an addendum as to why the LSAT is an unreliable indicator of what makes a successful law student. I have applied to 10 schools now but feel I should do more.
11/10/08: Just received an email from Dayton saying they are waiving my application fee due to my academic performance. That's a good sign...I hope.
11/19/08: Sent applications to Cleveland-Marshall and Louisville. I know they are stretches, as are most of my schools, but I am really hoping for a miracle.
12/5/08: My applications are under review at Temple, Dayton, and Duquesne, but I haven't heard back from any other schools. I wonder how long it takes to hear back. It could be a good thing that they're taking their time on their decisions...wishful thinking.
12/6/08: Well, so much for wishful thinking. I received my first rejection letter in the mail from the University of Baltimore. I don't know how I feel about that since it wasn't really my first choice. I hope this isn't starting some vicious cycle.
12/18/08: MIchigan State rejected me but sent me information on their LEO program, which is conditional and costs like $1300. I don't think I'll do it because if I get through it, then I get evening admission. I don't want that.
12/23/08: Rejected at Stetson...Merry Fuckin' Christmas! I just love being 0-3
1/12/09: Rejected at Kansas. I was expecting that, though. I really hope I will actually be going to law school next year...getting very scared.
1/27/09: I received a letter from Louisville saying my application is on "Hold" so they can get a feel of the incoming class profile. I'm glad it's not a flatout rejection...yet. They said they reviewed my application, so at least they are considering me in the running. I don't know what to call this since no decision has been made, so for now, I'll say I'm waitlisted. I should know in the next few weeks whether I'm in there or not. Did anyone else receive this from Louisville?
2/11/09: Well, after waiting to hear from Widener for months, all I received from them was an invitation to their TAP program. I think I'll pass on that. I'm definitely losing hope by the minute....I doubt I'm going to law school.
2/13/09: Rejected at Rutgers-Camden AND Toledo. My future is looking brighter every day. I really don't think I'm getting into law school....
2/17/09: Sent in a desperation app to Capital.
2//26/09: Has anyone else been waiting for a decision from schools they sent apps to way back in October or November? I have been! I know they're complete but still no word from these schools. I'm getting extremely nervous/stressed out/losing all hope. Help!!!!
3/4/09: Received an email from the admissions dean at Louisville saying that the second review of apps is going to happen in late March/early April. I'm not very hopeful about Louisville...or any other school. This waiting is killing me!!!!!!!! I don't have any aceptances, and summer conditional programs are not an option.
3/9/09: Rejected at my top choice! Figures!!! Life sucks...I have lost ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL hope. For all the money I wasted on app fees, LSAC membership, LSAT tests, and my LSAT prep course, I could have had two pairs of Manolos and some designer clothes to go with them.
3/9/09: Another desperation app to Barry. I don't even know if I have a chance, but oh well...worth a shot.
3/10/09: Waitlisted at Dayton. That's better than a rejection, I suppose.
3/21/09: After MUCH consideration, I have decided that it wouldn't hurt for me to do the TAP program at Widener because even if I don't go to school there, I'll still have an edge. I'm VERY nervous for it because only 25%-30% of the students get into law school, and if I don't make it, then NO law school will EVER take me. Hopefully I'll get accepted somewhere else and won't have to worry.
3/22/09: Rejected at Capital. They sent the letter at the beginning of the month, so they didn't even consider me.
3/30/09: Well, after almost 6 months of waiting, I received a big fat rejection from Temple. Their letter was quite laughable I must say. My app at Barry has been put on hold, too.
3/31/09: Heard from Louisville, and they won't have a decision made until mid to late April. I submitted LOCI to Dayton and to Louisville.
5/9/09: Finally got my much-anticipated rejection letter from Cleveland-Marshall. I can't even be depressed anymore because my life sucks more than I can even describe.
5/19/09: TAP at Widener starts tonight, and I am SO nervous! Only a certain % of people pass, and I hope and pray that I am one of them! This is SO nervewracking!!!!!!!
6/2/09: I'M IN AT DAYTON!!!!!!!!!!!! I JUST RECEIVED AN EMAIL!!!! Now I have some options since I'm doing TAP at Widener right now. If I pass the classes, then I'll be in the part-time program there. I'M GOING TO LAW SCHOOL!!!!!!
6/12/09: Sent in my deposits to Dayton, so that's where I'm going!!! My TAP grades won't be back in time anyway, and I think UD is the better school!!! WOOOO!!!!!
