ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

In a UF and FSU. Going to FSU.

Hurray!!!

I never have to use this site ever again.

Don't be a douchebag. Formerly withdraw from all the schools you aren't going to attend. The waitlist blows.

Bye byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

January 2008 = Accepted to University of Miami. Really expensive to live in South Florida.

February 2008 = Rejected at George Mason. To be expected. Had to cut my awesome Personal Statement down to 500 words for this school.

Accepted to Florida Int'l on Feb 25th. Should hear from UT in 3 weeks or less according to an email from them.

Rejected at Georgia on Feb 29th.

Rejected at Emory on March 1st.

Accepted to FSU via telephone message. Awesome!!! I really don't care what UF says at this point; I'm trying to avoid going back to a no-jobs college town like Gainesville. I'll withdraw from FIU, Miami, and Coastal at this point.

Confirmed in at FSU. Let's see: Tallahassee is a real city with jobs and a low cost of living and FSU is a low-cost quality school. Yeah. Looks like I'm moving to the panhandle.

Rejected at Tennessee; no hard feelings (3/17/2008)

In at UF (3/22); waitlisted at William and Mary (3/22)--Will most likely withdraw from both. The only thing that will alter my plans to go to FSU at this point would be acceptance to Vandy with some type of financial aid.

Personal Stuff:

Graduated from UF a year early in spring of 2006. Took LSAT in October of 2005; scored a 155. Applied solely to UF and FSU in 2005-2006 cycle; waitlisted and rejected at both places.

Took a job as a stock broker; married my college sweetheart.

Took LSAT in December of 2007; scored another 155.

Relying on: High GPA and maturity (graduated early, married, licensed financial pro at reputable firm).

Need acceptance to a school in a city with a decent job market where my wife can earn a living as a Series 9/10 Financial Supervisor. Po' dunk college towns may be a problem.

WAITLISTING IS A CRUEL HOAX! I had to wait an entire summer with my life on hold in 2006 to finally be rejected by UF and FSU. If I am waitlisted anywhere, it means the same as a rejection.
