Randomness:
01-28-07
I was debating adding rankings to my schools today, but depending on different circumstances they all rank in different places. Maybe I'll rank them after I get in....I love every school I applied to (even if 1 was only because the app was free) and would love going to all of them for various reasons. This process is ridiculously stressful and makes me question my life goals every day. But I like it. I also took down UDenver because its empty boxes were annoying me haha

I changed the date of "complete" for Seattle to Jan 16 because the status checker, a post card, and two emails said "Jan 16" instead of showing the day my checker CHANGED

02-13-07
I'm thinking about withdrawing from Ave Maria. Ann Arbor is just soooo expensive and St. Thomas would provide some better career options for the b/f. We'll see. I'd feel bad since Ave Maria was the first school to send me any unsolicited emails LOL. I just can't see choosing Ann Arbor over Minneapolis.... (Of course attending UST would be assuming UTK gives me 0 scholarship money and no one else accepts me with a tempting enough package)

02-23-07
The SO and I booked our flights and hotel room for Gonzaga's AS-open house. They told me they'd pay for one night of a hotel if I scheduled a visit but I wasn't sure if they do that for the open house, and I read some bad reviews from to hotels they recommend. We're staying a few days to check out apartments/the area/potential jobs for him just in case we chose there. That way we're saving ourselves from the 600 dollar of a second flight. It is ridiclously expensive to travel, I can't wait to be a (hopefully) well-paid lawyer one day.

02-27-07
Anyone else noticed the weird 1,2,6 date pattern in my acceptances? LOL

03/10/07
No more 1,2,6 pattern. LOL

Because people's posts requesting others to withdrawal from schools they rightfully got into irritate the crap out of me:
My decisions on the remaining schools are contingent on my visit to Spokane at the end of this month. If I HATE it then I'll be visiting some other other schools. If I love it I will promptly come home, mail my deposit, and withdrawal from every where else. Don't bug me because you didn't get in immediately. (OK that sounds harsh, I just think its rude)

03-12-07
Only two schools left...its kind of sad that this is all over. It was so much fun looking forward to the mail every day...oh well, now I get to look forward to packing, moving, and not having a life for the next three years. LOL

04-02-07
I just wrote my check for my seat deposit at Gonzaga. The campus was BEAUTIFUL, the class I sat in on was pretty cool, and the entire office AND student body was super nice to me. Spokane as a whole had incredibly nice people, my boyfriend and I didn't meet a single depressed or rude person and we spent most of the weekend driving around trying to find a place we wanted to live. We have an apartment lined up and everything. I'm pretty excited. I'm withdrawing tomorrow from all the school except ASU and Vanderbilt since I figure I paid for a response from them I might as well wait to get it, but barring a huge intervention of Jesus Christ, I doubt I'd go to either. (BTW I do know Gonzaga is still ranked lower than quite a few of the schools I got into, but I'm not too concerned about that)

04-07-07
I've been having commitment issues, and for about the past week have had my check to gonzaga taped to the door ready to be mailed. I took the jump today and its on its way to Spokane. SCARY!

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

12-26-06
Received a Christmas card from Seattle University :)

01-03-07
LSAC is irritating me. My recommender mailed her LOR the first week of December, never showed up. Then she faxed it last week and instead of emailing that there was an issue they were going to "mail it back to her" this week. She faxed it yesterday and it processed this morning. If I would have known about faxing before I would have had them all do it in the first place. SOOO much faster

01-05-07
I got a really interesting email from UDenver describing their Int'l Law program so I applied even though they didn't give me a fee waiver - I hope it wasn't a waste of 72 dollars.

01-08-07
FINALLY Gonzaga requested my report. YAY :)

01-11-07
My first complete at University of Tennessee, wahhoooo :). I expected it to be Vanderbilt because they seemed like the school totally in control of applications, but I was pleasantly surprised to see other schools haven't given up on me ;).

01-14-07
On a silly note I totally had a dream I went to Gonzaga last night and attended some classes. HAHA Maybe its a sign from God? I doubt it, but I sure was confused when I woke up :).

01-16-07
I called all the schools that hadn't emailed that I was complete and I'm complete at all schools they are just waiting for my hard copy. So unless I get another update I am just putting complete for today.

01-16-07
OMG came home and checked the mail and I had a letter from UT saying CONGRATULATIONS and a nice handwritten note from the director of admissions saying they "look forward to seeing me next fall". I can't believe it, I was pretty much freaking out. So no matter what happens from here on out I AM GOING TO LAW SCHOOL!! Scholarship info will come later and it was in a small white envelope. :)
- Just noticed, my accept letter was dated 01-11-07, the same day they notified me that I was complete.

01-17-06
I'm calling tomorrow to withdraw my UDenver app. I didn't mail the app fee due to a medical expense and I called to withdraw earlier this week but the girl told me just to send an email and they'd probably give me a fee waiver. So I carefully constructed a letter explaining the situation and got back an obviously "copy-pasted" response to send in proof of my financial need such as tax documents. WTF? So yea, so much for their international law program.

01-20-07
Another letter from UT, I was HOPING it'd say "Brittany, we love you, have a full ride scholarship on us." And I'd say "I'd love to UTK, you're awesome. Let me buy you a smirnoff green apple." Instead it said "Our faculty is great, come visit us." Oh well...There's supposed to be more corespondence later.

01-22-07
Received an email from ASU. My app is complete and I should hear from them before May (yuck). Hopefully their turnaround is better than that! Later in the afternoon I got an email from Ave Maria saying the same thing.

01-25-07
Complete at Gonzaga via e-mail. AHHHHH :)
6:00 PM: And at UNLV via snail mail dated 01/19/07
AND Seattle via status checker. GEEZ!! :)
To ease the mind of future SU status checkers, it updated today, but shows app received 01/08 and complete 01/16. I wouldn't rely too heavily on it until it said decision mailed.

01-26-07
And we're on a roll, I have CHOICES!!! Accepted via email from Ave Maria :). I should get the real letter soon, they mailed it yesterday. wahhoooo
AND complete at vanderbilt via e-mail.

01-27-07
So due to the constant excitement around GWU I decided that maybe I'll apply just for the heck of it. It was my original list, but I thought their rejection letter would make me too sad, since I would really REALLY want to go there. I checked the GWU website, saw the 80 dollar APP fee, and changed my mind. I can spend 80 dollars on more usefull things than a letter that will just make me cry. lol. In other news, all I got in the mail today was a power bill. EW.

01-28-07
So Sundays used to be my favorite day of the week (Yes, I'm a Christian - Yay Jesus lol). Now I HATE it!!! Its just a day of SILENCE on the law school front. haha - I'm a mess.

01-29-07
Oh my goodness gracious goodness. I opened up my Ave Maria packet of acceptance and the first thing I saw was "25,000" Holy crap. So 25K per year all three years contingent on a 3.0 (Kinda high...I'll have to see what their curve is) AND the ability to interview for the St. Thomas More full ride scholarship if I go to one of their ASW's. I'm in shock. I said I expected SOMETHING, I didn't expect this much. Also got a postcard from Seattle dated 01-16 confirming they have all parts of my app.

02/01/07
Applied to Lewis and Clark in Oregon because they sent me some very interesting info and fee waiver. Then I saw the city on HGTV last night and decided it was beautiful, and I wanted to live there. LOL

02/08/07
I'm going nuts here. I've been trying really hard to be patient but it's not working very well LOL. My acceptances came 10 days apart last time, we're going on like 12 or something now (I forget and don't have a calender around). This is ridiculous, someone else show me some love! I did get an Email from UT saying that the "business letter" has been delayed again and is being mailed out Friday. They posted it on the general admitted students site and it's just boring info I already knew. I'm HOPING HOPING HOPING that it's delayed for scholarship offers. I really need to know if they are giving me one because I would really like to live in Knoxville...but not for 130K of debt.
....I said "really" a lot...can you tell I'm a stress case. GEEZ this is embarassing.

02-12-07
My new mantra is a watched pot never boils. I got my Ave Maria acceptance after I gave up on hearing anything for awhile. Then I come home today to a huge packet from St. Thomas with 20,000 dollars per year with atleast a 1.25 the first semester and a 2.0 after that. (Dated Feb 5th, postmarked Feb 6th). I don't really know much about the school but as of this month they are accredited so I'll have to think some more about minneapolis. I wish the other schools would respond though!!! BTW I didn't get the cool t-shirt everyone is talking about. I'm pretty bummed about it because it's the only school I applied to that sends stuff like that. I think if I decide to go there I'm going to ask for one lol. ;)

02-13-07
So I checked the mail today (almost had another run in with the mail lady but I'm pretty sure I got back to my apt before she saw me). And there was a package from St Thomas with "congratulations" written along the back in purple marker, with a cute card, a personal note, and MY TSHIRT. They're forgiven for leaving it out of the original letter. LOL The shirt says its a large but it looks more like XXL. It would be pretty cute if it was my size (small - lol i'll look pretty crazy wearing this one). so YAY this makes it less sad that no other school has sent me love for a long time. :)

02/15/07
A bunch of people on/around my complete date got accepted into Gonzaga today...I'm hoping that means good news for my mail box Friday or Saturday. In fact, my bf wants to go there so bad, he's actually agreed to check the mail for me and call me at work to tell me if there is any news tomorrow. (He has refused to feed my addiction until now, making me wait till 5:30 to check the mail every day)

02-16-07
OMG I'm so freakin excited :) Mine and George's choice we agree 100% on accepted me!! With a scholarship that makes their debt competitive to the other schools!! I can't believe it! I'm sure I made a fool of myself at work when he called to tell me, but who cares!! YAY Gonzaga!

02-17-07
I mailed my withdrawal form to Ave Maria this afternoon. My family/friends keep telling me to hold onto all of my acceptances and think about it at the end. I just feel too bad keeping 75,000 dollars at a school I'm 99% sure I will not chose over the others. I hope my withdrawal frees up some scholarship money for someone who really wants to go.

02-20-07
Complete at Lewis and Clark, their status checker says 02/12

02-24-07
So I was fine getting no mail today or tomorrow and then some of my dormant schools became active...time to stress again.

02-26-07
UNLV with almost a full ride...This makes my decision harder than I ever imagined.

03-06-07
Seattle's status checker finally changed. Now that I've pretty much decided I'm going to Gonzaga its not as exciting as I thought. But still cool!!

03-08-07
Still no Seattle letter even though it was supposedly mailed the fifth. I did get a letter from UT from a professor today though. I thought it was a financial aid offer so I was kind of bummed. AND a letter from L&C that was a notice that they are "committed to making a financial aid offer" but I forgot to update my fafsa with their school. I also got a scholarship email from them this morning, but I've heard nothing about being admitted or not. Anyone know what this means? All in all, what I thought was an exciting mail day at the mail box, turned out to be really boring when I got back to my house and opened everything.

03/10/07
Accepted at Seattle. This would have been so much more exciting a month ago, before I heard some bad things about the quality of life at that school. But its nice to have the acceptance letter from the school I've been researching for 2 years now. As soon as I figure out how I'll withdraw my app...(Scholarship: must be in top 25% of class)
PS. Post marked March 7th...Liars.
(JK!)

03-12-07
In at Lewis and Clark but with no money. Apparently they gave out all their money and I would be a candidate for some if they had any left. I could get some in April MAYBE but its not worth the risk. Plus the dual seat deposits of 300 in April and 300 in June don't really work for me. Its sad because its such a gorgeous school. Life goes on I suppose.

03-14-07
Well, I got my financial aid offer from UT...no scholarship for me. Its pretty sad...I liked the idea of living in Knoxville. I feel like I got my first rejection or something... :(

03-26-07
After some discussion with George and more extensive research I've re-ordered my schools. Also, I got a really neat car decal for Seattle University, too bad I'm not going there, cuz it is really nice.

04-10-07
Virtual VULS: Decision Mailed Date: 2007-04-09 00:00:00

04-12-07
First rejection. The letter was a whole 3 sentences. LOL

04-25-07
I graduate in less than a month! How scary!
On a side note: I don't know why the the state of Arizona thinks they are sooo amazing they can send out decisions whenever the heck they feel like it. Seriously, ASU, pick up the pace.

04-28-07
Apparently ASU doesn't like to be rushed. LOL. Rejected today. My cycle is officially over, even though its felt over for awhile.

07-22-07
I've been in Washington for almost two months now. School starts in three weeks! Gonzaga here I come! Looking back now on all the stress caused by the cycle, it just all seems so silly! Checking LSN every day for months didn't make it easier or better, neither did meeting the mail woman at the mail box in multiple embarassing episodes...and now it seems so far away. LOL

If any of you next cycle people are reading this, goodluck, congratulations on your acceptances and dont let the LSAT or LSAC take over your life! The year will be over before you know it, and you'll be wishing you had spent more time relaxing and less time more stressed than you'd been in your entire life! ;)

I feel your pain with the LSAC issues ... my recommender said he sent it in about the same time, and it still hasn't hit. I'm freaking out because he's out of town and LSAC says they haven't seen it yet, but that they're "back-logged". Who knew you could fax?! I hope I'm not hurt in the process =/ Good luck!

Did you visit it? Look at the faculty also... pretty much all from T10 schools. It's not bad at all. They just fell to T3 because USNWR made endowment count for less than it did last time. Yeah, don't take part in "REBEL" celebrations. Unless they actually let you rebel and kick someone's ass.

Well, I go to Gonzaga now, as an undergraduate. I'm not FROM Spokane, per se, but this is my 4th year living in Spokane, so I suppose I can speak to its liveability. I really like it. It's a great college town and you'll be really close to some great (cheap) bars and the basketball is fantastic. I think you'd like it. Granted, it hasn't got the nightlife of Chicago or NYC, but it's a good place to meet a lot of young people. I like it. Good luck, man!

Seattle is pretty expensive, but you learn quickly as a student how to find nice places for relatively cheap around the city.

  • Friday, January 26 2007 at 10:00 AM

the email didn't say anything about a scholarship, so you're definitely not out of the running. The award letter was consolidated into the acceptance letter they sent with the admissions package afterwards via snail mail, so you should know when you get your packet.

Glad to hear they finally changed it to complete. THey only update on Tuesdays...not that I didn't check it daily regardless. Just wait until it says "Decision Mailed", I've never been so neurotic. I'd say good luck, but I don't think you'll need it. I think Chiashu is greatly underestimating your chances.

Thanks wolfpack! I'm pretty happy that Seattle U came through with a good scholarship package. I really want to hear from UW still, but at least I know I can move to Seattle if I want to. I expected rejections from all the big name schools like Harvard, just figured I was only applying to law school once and had to take the shot. Good luck, I'll be keeping an eye on your progress.

so i agree. sundays suck. not because of church, which is actually quite good, but because i dont get mail either. saturdays suck too because my school decided not to deliver mail on saturdays either. wtf! smirnoff green apple huh? im more of a jack and coke guy myself, but if a law school admissions officer decided to buy me a drink i would have to go AMF all the way. bang for your buck right? anyways. good luck. hopefully you will be hearing form seattle soon. they should love your LSAT.

I haven't told you congrats yet on your Ave Maria Scholarship. WOW. That's a lot of money! You know, you really shouldn't stress about Seattle. I think you are getting in for sure. I only had like a 25-30% chance and got in. YOU have an LSAT 5 points higher than mine. You are good to go! PS. Hopefully you get accepted before Feb 16th, cause that is the open house day. If not, the next one is in March. Good luck. I will be prayin for your Seattle acceptance!

Isn't the waiting so much fun? I'm pretty much going nuts over here as well. On the bright side, it's an accomplishment to be accepted into law school to start with.

No, I've scoured that site a few times, and read through the business letter that came in the mail and the only mention of money is that the notifications will be made as decisions are made. I'm thinking, though, that about the only way they'll sway me from W&L is a full ride, and it may even take a stipend. Thanks for the UMich condolences....as my favorite t-shirt says: Muck Fichigan.

reasons not to go to st. thomas: 1. unranked, so no idea how the reputation will be received among law firms and how this could affect hiring practices 2. new, so not a large alumni base to network with when job searching i still might attend (i'm visiting this weekend) but those two things make me skeptical. however the full scholarship helps me deal with some of that skepticism

Seriously!! They held out for a long time!! I'm still toying with the idea ... origiinally they were pretty low (I feel the need to get out of Las Vegas) but financially they make a lot of sense. I'm torn! I'm surprised you haven't heard from them yet, considering your numbers. What do you feel about them? P.S. I went to UNR for 2 years, I am a secret wolfpack fan =)

  • Sunday, February 25 2007 at 09:32 AM

I totally understand where you're coming from. I went to HS here, then UNR for 2 years, and coming home to UNLV wasn't my choice, so I have harbored resentment for this town for quite some time! Lately though, I've been having separation anxiety, for the same reasons, friends/family. Sometimes Vegas isn't that bad (I never thought I'd say that!). I grew up in CO so DU is my top choice right now, but they have to give me something, I can't afford their tuition! My boyfriend is stressed about our future financial hardship, so when UNLV gave me money when I'm already instate, it made our situation a little more complicated! I highly doubt they are going to reject you, your numbers are higher than mine, so I'm sure you'll get an acceptance with money on Monday!! Gonzaga would be an awesome choice though, so I hope it works out! Okay, now I wrote you a novel back!

UNLV is definitely worth it! You got a wonderful scholarship and you shouldn't turn it down. I wish I did better on the LSAT, but I graduated high school in Vegas, so I'm hoping that I get in once they begin really looking at applications with lower LSAT's. I'm a terrible test taker, but other than that, I am a great teacher. The LSAT just doesn't have any math on it! Darn it! LOL! But UNLV is a very friendly school and the tuition is CHEAP AS CAN BE!!! I wish they'd hurry up and make a decision though!!!

  • Thursday, March 01 2007 at 05:40 PM

Hey, I read your comment about getting a fee waiver from Lewis and Clark and wanting to go to their school after finding out how beautiful the place is. I had the same reaction and I think that Lewis and Clark were betting on our positive reaction to their location. After seeing their brochure they suddenly became my top choice among my target schools because I always wanted to move up north to get away from LA. This gives me the opportunity to do so. Plus their tuition and cost of living is cheaper than in California so that helps me justify the move if I get in. Maybe I will see you there this fall. That would be totally awesome since we are both enamored with their school and city. Good luck to you!

Definitely a huge weight off my shoulders seeing the first acceptance. It said something about there being scholarships available to students and I would be notified once a decision was made. The hand-written note at the bottom was def a pleasant and heartwarming surprise. It's nice to be treated like more than a bunch of numbers. And it's funny, my acceptance was dated March 1, the day after they told me that I was complete. Good luck on your other apps and congrats on your acceptances...I'm pulling for both of us to hit up Vandy.

Congrats on the Lewis and Clark acceptance. I got my deferral today though so maybe that slight GPA difference made the difference. From your comments it seems as though you will not be attending because they didn't give you a scholarship. I've thought about that too and for me I will be attending even if they don't give me one. So if you don't want to go, do withdraw whenever you make the final decision. If you are going, I hope to see you there this fall, if I get in that is. So, what's your top choice now? lol

The above person was deferred with a 3.16 and a 165 yesterday. That makes me feel better but it must mean that someone in the admissions office has been drinking lately. They'd better resolve this issue soon. Thanks for your kind words as well. I know it does suck that you can't give your spot to someone else. I can't afford to go to law school without financial aid either but I can take out loans from the federal government. I would assume you could do so as well unless you have a high EFC. Mine was just $1,200 so that basically means I am dirt poor. It should have been zero though. You may want to contact Lewis and Clark if you would really like to go there since they would probably offer you some way of attending. They could probably help you get some good loans. If I went I know I would want someone as nice as you at the same school.

I am leaning towards LC. Even though I like the scholarship offer from Seattle, and the fact that I would have an apartment RIGHT across the street from the school, I LOVE Portland. It is amazing. Although LC is more liberal than I would ideally want, I think it creates an uncompetitive environment. I am all about being happy living in city I go to law school in. I know I will love Portland. I sure hope you decide to take Portland over Spokane. Im going to request you as a friend on MySpace. (I saw it on your profile on LC Admitted Students Website) Let me know more info about your decision. :) Good Luck!

  • Wednesday, March 28 2007 at 03:45 PM

I also hope to get into Lewis and Clark because it is still my first choice out of the schools that I will likely get accepted into. It's great that you are seriously considering L&C for those reasons because they are the same ones that attracted me to their school. I too am looking for a school that not only provides an excellent education but also great quality of life since I will likely be staying in the city for more than just 3 years. Additionally, they are cheaper than most California schools so that is a bonus. It's hard waiting for them because I want to attend so badly. Even my family is starting to support me on this move. Now it's up to Lewis and Clark to get this done. Nothing I can do but wait. I e-mailed them a letter of continued interested a few days before the deferral so they know I would go. Let me know if you choose to attend because we might be classmates this August.

I think you made a good decision. For one thing, RANKINGS DON'T MEAN JACK!!! So just because Gonzaga is ranked lower than some other schools doesn't mean it's not as good of a school. People should start paying attention to their own needs instead of the rankings. So good luck to you. Enjoy Washington.
