1-18-08- Got into the CLEO program accepted it and am going to the sunny location.
2/9/08-Found out that my application for Fordham was placed in second evaluation pile for further consideration later on. Not exactly waitlisted but will not know the decision till late march.
2/10/08-OMG I dont know if the rest of you feel this way but are some schools, how do I put this, stalking you. I think I've gotten 12 emails and three phone calls from hofstra repeatedly saying I got in. Then Florida Costal keeps on calling my cell phone and leaving me voicemails to apply to the schools not to mention emails. God damn its not like i dont appreciate the offers but their aggressive approach is scaring me.
2-22-08 Sad day for me. Got a rejection from Georgetown the only one that has hurt thus far. On to some semi brighter news got a 157 on my Feb LSAT.
3-5-08-Hmmm rejected from Penn and got a packet from Rutgers. Now that i think about it I suppose I only applied to a lot of top 14 to see if id get in but in actuality even if i get into, lets say UVA I dont think I would go, too far. Hmmmmm wat a waste of money.
3-10-08 Well I found out I got into the minority student program in Rutgers, which I heard is a great academic and netwoking tool. Hmm I've been thinking about this and I just wanted to say that i really admire those students that dont have normal or above par lsats or gpas because the admissions process is one humbling experience and i feel like those with low gpas and lsats that actually endure it have in many ways more motivation and dedication than those with a 4.0 and a 180. So for those struggling dont give up and kudos to you.
3-17-08-A cheap ass one page envelope from Villanova saying they accepted me. No details of financial aid.
3-22-08-Hey unlike cheap ass Villanova St. Louis sent me a really great packet with a pen and everything, yeiiiiiiiiiiiii. Also has scholarship money. Will I go? No, but its the thought that counts, lol. Still loving my Rutgers.
3-25-08- To be perfectly honest and because I created this page to help others next year in a similar situation I will tell you that having taken my lsat in Feb. has made this cycle very stressful. Most of the schools still pending received my applications in Nov. but because I took the lsat in Feb. they marked my application as complete in Feb. and they really havent reviewed or made any decisions. what does this mean? more torture waiting for answers, fewer spaces, less money. I still think I will be going to law school next year simply because I have worked too hard, spent too much money on applications and time filling out scholarship applications to not go next year. Yet I am sure if I did this cycle again and handed my application in Sept. I would get much more positive responses. But such is life and no matter where I go I will succeed. Hope this helps others.
3-28-08 omg got accepted into cornell but omg the money dear lord its $42,000 no aid and then 12,000 to live there. Its crazy because I went to Rutgers admit day and am pretty sure I can sucker more money out of them. I like the school but cornell is cornell ahhhhh dont know what to do.
3-29-08-Damn I cant believe Hastings rejected me from leop. Both of my other friends are going and they had similar scores of 3.5 and 151 but hey they had their apps completed by december and I had mine completed in March. Oh well such is life. Hope who ever goes enjoys it there.
4-02-08-yeiiiii money from villanova. I take back the mean things I said to them. Yeeiiiiii.
4-02-08-In response to lawstarr asking which law school I will be going to....It all really depends on the money the schools give me and since I still dont know the financial aid offers from all of the lawschools i therefore still can not honestly decide. Yet as weird as it might seem to many I am definantly leaning towards Rutgers and already gave them my deposit. Why? I figure if your gonna do amazing or have great grades your job prospective will be good regardless of which school you go to. You'll just have less debt. I put a post on lawschooldiscussion and they gave me alot of insight so go check it out, its about prestige or money for law schools and they talk about law students after law school.
4-8-07- Umm got full tuition scholarships from St. Johns and University of Buffalo, didnt want to look up how much money that was so I did a rought estimation for both. Im assuming this doesnt include housing.
4-17-08 This has been a great week!!! I received a call from Cardoza informing me that I got in with a lot of money, yeiiiiiiiiiiiii! Yet more importantly I also finally got my financial award letter from Cornell and I was so happy with the financial award that I cried. I know alot of people questioned why I was considering Rutgers over Cornell but money was a serious issue because of my financial situation yet after I analyzed the award I will most definantly go to Cornell.
To the people that take their lsats in February or that dont have the highest lsat or gpa there is still hope if you have god and a lot of determination!!!!
