*Excuse my username. It was from last year when I pretty much only applied to UCLA.*

[Scholarship amounts are over a 3 year period]

*12/13/07 Deferred at Fordham

I want to end up practicing in the LA area. Would it be wise to pick Loyola/Pepperdine over Hastings?

*2/15/08 - I just withdrew from being considered for Loyola's evening program.*

I actually never even checked the status checker... I lost the letter they sent me with my password. :P GL on your UCLA WL... I'm super jealous. Still waiting to hear from them.

same as zaii, I also didn't look at the status checker as I've had hit and miss internet for the past month. I really hope that waitlist turns accepted for you though... all this waiting is nerve-racking. Good luck!

yes, the status checker updated to complete saying the decision was in the mail well before it actually came. However it took them a LONG time to go complete for me.

funny that you say that. I too know that UCLA and USC are reaches, but I would love to attend Loyola. Hopefully I have a few choices to pick from. California dreaming for me, but I have no qualms with staying in NYC for law school either. Good luck with everything

  • Tuesday, January 15 2008 at 08:23 AM

I don't think you are being paranoid, anyone can go batty waiting for their decisions to come in! Sleep would be good (especially since you wrote on my profile at 4AM!) At least you have been accepted somewhere already! Good l uck with everything else, and try not to worry as much.

I am confident that you will be accepted to Loyola fairly soon (and UCLA for that matter). Hopefully we will be attending a school together in the fall!

  • Sunday, January 20 2008 at 09:54 AM

the waiting game is killing me, but I should be getting some decisions within the next few weeks. I'm surprised that you haven't received all of your decisions yet. That is a bit weird, but I think that you will be fine.

  • Hey
  • Tuesday, February 12 2008 at 04:54 PM

you and I both are waiting to hear back from Loyola. I have only received one decision so far, and I have passed the seven-week mark since I submitted the applications. I just hope that the decisions won't take much longer. Congrats on your Cali acceptances. I'm still rooting for the possibility that we will be attending the same law school in the fall.

  • Wednesday, February 13 2008 at 07:55 AM

I can see from your comments that you've been totally stressing over the lack of movement on your Loyola app. I went complete on December 12 and have not heard anything either. Looking at LSN data, a lot of people have been passed over. I'm really hoping for Loyola too but I'm trying not to worry about it. Good luck to you!

part-time is really unappealing, especially since you have already been accepted to three good schools. I'm sure that with your score you will be accepted full-time. You're right about the first rejection. it stung a bit (and on Valentine's day - how bout them apples!) I can't believe that I only have two decisions under my belt - the wait is nerve wracking!

  • Saturday, February 16 2008 at 06:01 AM

I am also ecstatic that it all comes down to LA or NYC. I wasn't to thrilled at the idea of living in Arlington for three years.

I am feeling quite a bit anxious right now. It has been over 8 weeks since I sent out my applications and I have only received those responses. There is a good possibility that we might be attending the same law school in the fall, or at least in the same city. I applied to Southwestern roughly two weeks ago. You're right about NYLS. It is the law school that I can fall back on. They has been a delay with my financial aid package however which has further raised my blood pressure. I'm hanging in there, but so far law schools are not showing me love. I had thought about Pepperdine (albeit too conservative for my taste) and USD, but I want to practice in Los Angeles. Here's to hoping we attend the same school in the fall, and thank you for your kind words!

I'm glad you finally went to decision. They sure now how to keep people in suspense. I am confident that you're in and with money. Luck is not necessary because you will be fine.

- nomikos86
  • loyola
  • Saturday, February 23 2008 at 12:58 PM

You should definitely be receiving the decision (meaning your acceptance) sometime within the next few days. My application however is still being reviewed by Loyola. Glad to see that you don't mind my monopolizing your wall. Hopefully we will attend the same law school in the fall.

- nomikos86
  • so...
  • Sunday, February 24 2008 at 01:52 PM

decision should be coming any day now for you. Seeing as though you want to practice in the LA area, which of the schools that you have been accepted to are you leaning towards?

- nomikos86
  • CONGRATULATIONS!!!
  • Monday, February 25 2008 at 06:52 AM

Congratulations on Loyola! I knew you would get in. No word get from the Cali schools which is not good. Ideally, in a perfect world, we would be attending UCLA or USC together. However from the schools left I would most want to attend Loyola or Cardozo in New York City. Southwestern is very appealing, especially if they back it up with a scholarship. So to answer your question, Loyola and Cardozo are the top choices for now, unless by luck I am accepted to UCLA or USC. When is Loyola going to notify you about scholarship info?

  • Monday, February 25 2008 at 04:33 PM

Looks like we have the same goals in mind, and I do hope that they become a reality! As for Loyola, I honestly believe that they will give you more money than Pepperdine. According to U.S. News and World Report, they are the most generous school in terms on financial aid. that spells good things for you!

  • need access
  • Thursday, February 28 2008 at 03:01 PM

Need Access didn't contact me. I called Access Group because I had submitted everything weeks ago and I had some sort of notice, and the status checker online was blank, so I wanted to make sure everything was fine and the application processed. Wow, that was a run-on sentence. I hope that Loyola doesn't take four months with me either. thanks for all of your kind words.

  • hey
  • Wednesday, March 12 2008 at 02:29 PM

so you finally went on your LSN account again. I was started to get worried that you forgot all about us, lol. The mission statement really deterred me. living near Loyola is still cheaper than living in Malibu, so the difference in scholarship isn't that big of a deal, right? I still haven't heard back from Loyola. The worry factor is increasing. Email me if you want to rant about the admissions practice or whatever.

- nomikos86
  • loyola
  • Friday, March 14 2008 at 05:58 PM

they're still considering my application. Deposits are due 4/11. I really want to attend a law school in Los Angeles. sigh.

  • in the dark
  • Monday, March 17 2008 at 08:38 AM

still waiting. I am holding off on visiting schools in LA until I get some more decisions in. I will likely be heading out to LA sometime at the end of April or beginning of May. Are you from the LA area?

- nomikos86
  • thanks
  • Tuesday, March 18 2008 at 04:30 PM

it is a very absurd situation with Southwestern that I'm hoping a phone call will fix. I called the financial aid office there today and one of the women working there told me that I should be receiving an award letter sometime in May! That didn't sound right to me so I emailed the financial aid office there. Hopefully someone will get back to me. The deposit is due April 1. They only gave me two weeks to make a decision. I can't put down multiple deposits because that would be unethical, so they are putting me in a bit of a bind. How can I commit to a school if I have no idea what type of financial aid and scholarships I will be receiving? The acceptance at least means that I will be making a visit sometime near the end of April or the start of May. I will definitely email you if I will be in the area. I'm going to wait out the rest of the decisions before deciding if I will move to LA or not. It would be nice if Loyola would go to decision already. The law school process is making me bananas! Sorry to hear that you have been so busy lately. Thanks again for the kind words.

  • Saturday, April 05 2008 at 10:44 AM

still no word from Loyola. The financial aid situation has yet to be resolved as well. I keep on having to call different people, getting different answer each time. I was told that I am in the top 10% of their admitted students yet I didn't receive an academic scholarship. i was advised to call someone else on monday. thank god my phone plan includes unlimited long distance! if loyola accepts me then I will probably be in law school with you this fall!
