12.7.10- Final Review at Kent..decision in 2 weeks!

12.10.10- Deferred for further review at Kent! Better than a Rejection!
- Waitlisted at Marquette via snail mail... 2nd time in a row. What a let down.

12.27.10- Happy Holidays! Still no word from Loyola. Status checker still says application complete. Looks like they are going to wait it out till the Feb. 15th deadline!

12-28-10- Sent first LOCI to Kent. Really hoping this works out for me!

1-3-11- Decision Made at Loyola. Decision will be received within a month of it being made. Fingers crossed!

1-7-11- Dinged from Loyola. Oh well.

1-11-11 Letter of Reccomendation sent to LSAC from current manager for Kent and Marquette. Really hoping one of these pulls through.

1-30-11 Attended Kent's open house yesterday. LOVED the school and its faculty and staff. Such a great experience. Hoping I hear relatively soon!

3-8-11 Been in contact with admissions office at Kent and Marquette. Still deferred for further review at Kent and waitlisted at Marquette. Hoping to hear something within the next month or so...

4-8-11 Email from Marquette asking me to reconfirm if I wish to remain on the waitlist. Sent confirmation back asking to remain on waitlist..fingers crossed this cycle will end differently than the last.

4-27-11 Still no word from Kent or Marquette.

5-31-11 Second email from Marquette asking if I would wish to remain on the waitlist. Responded yes but am not too sure I would attend at this point.

6-14-11 Email from Kent stating their class is full but asked if I would like to remain under consideration if any spots were to open up. Why not.

7-13-11 Admitted to Kent via status checker!!!!!!! Dream come true I would have never expected this. 2 Years work paid off.

MU or perhaps SLU
Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Hey! I hope we both have better luck this cycle! I sent my application off today. I applied at SLU too so maybe we will be classmates either way. :)

Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

In my waitlist rejection letter they talked about going to another school then applying as a transfer. I know part - time they look at lower LSAT scores but the downside is that they only accept like 40 - 50 people for part time. You may be more competitive as part-time though with the LSAT.

Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

I just filled out the whole application again. I wrote a new personal statement because I had something new to say, although I do not think it is necessary.

Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Congrats!! I am excited for both of us. I wish MU had a status checker. I hate bothering the admissions office.

MU App
Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

I submitted my app (this cycle) on 09/01/2010 and I still have not gotten an email from them. Last cycle I believe I got the "application complete" email in early October.

Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

I know! I had to email them and ask what was taking so long. Right after that I got a "Complete" email. According to the admissions policy (this is what they said to me in an email) you will receive the "Complete" email from Marquette when they get your Oct LSAT score. Good luck!!

Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Did you get an email saying your app was complete at Marquette?

Sunday, June 27 2010 at 08:00 PM

Thank you, good luck on your cycle!

Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

I would totally email them and ask when your app will go complete/if there is anything else they need from you in order for it to go complete. They are sending decisions out this month already.

Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Definitely. Stephanie Nickolay is the director of recruitment and she generally hosts the sessions. She is very nice and very approachable. She is available for questions after the 45 minute session. The building is gorgeous. Have fun!

Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

I sent my app on 10/04/10 and they still only show it as "Application Received 10/12/10" on the status checker. So I haven't even gotten my complete email yet. If I remember correctly, last cycle I got my decision (waitlist) from them in January. I know I check the mailbox every day hoping to see a letter from Marquette. Anytime between now and Dec 14. I will surely post once I receive something! BTW it is really cool that you were raised in the UK. In my job right now all of my clients and coworkers live in the UK. Where did you live in particular? I loved London.

Sunday, August 30 2009 at 08:00 PM

My app went complete, then in review, then decision rendered. Same day decision rendered, went congrats accepted. Best of luck to you.

Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Thank you!! Wow I am soooo excited. This weekend has been a dream come true. my app went complete on 10/19 and they sent my decision out exactly one month later 11/19. You should hear from them very soon hopefully about a week or two. I am still hoping we will be classmates!!

Tuesday, October 19 2010 at 08:00 PM

Thanks.. the wait is horrible. If you didn't hear back from Marquette yet I'm sure you will soon. I love Milwaukee and could definitely see myself there next year

Marquette Waiting Game
Monday, October 20 2008 at 08:00 PM

Nope, nothing yet! I hate that they don't have a status checker, although it probably saves me some anxiety. I'm keeping an eye on my mailbox, though.

Marquette PT
Monday, October 20 2008 at 08:00 PM

Probably. I think they'll probably hold on to PT apps until they have a little bit bigger of a pool to draw from? I don't know, wild guess.

Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Hey there, I was going to advise that it probably means waitlist considering that is what happened to me last year. I see you just updated. Did you get the letter today? :( What are your plans?

Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

I was on the waitlist last year from December until August it sucked. Hopefully they will activate it earlier rather than later. The first seat deposit is due in April, so I am sure they will start picking after they do not receive seat deposits. What do you think about John Marshall? Last cycle they offered me admission to their summer program.

Tuesday, February 10 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey thanks for the kind words, and I am sorry to see you did not get in right away to Kent. One of the options I had looked at was going to a smaller school and trying to transfer. You will have to be in the top 10% of whatever school you go to so their is a risk. You may want to speak with the Dean of kent or Marquette and see what their thoughts are. If anything it emphasizes to them that you are interested and may help your spot on the waitlist. Good Luck!

Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

I did the same thing last cycle. It may also help to advise you will take any seat that opens up full or part time.

Oh no! A WL?
Monday, October 20 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'm sorry to see you were WLed for Marquette. I still haven't heard back, which is a bummer. Yikes.

I spoke too soon
Monday, October 20 2008 at 08:00 PM

I did get in to Marqutte PT. I just found out via email today. In the email they said I should have received my packet already, which I haven't. So weird. 85% chance I'm not going. I'll withdraw as soon as scholarship offers come out. I wonder if I can say to them, "I'll withdraw as long as Bellini03 gets my spot"?

Hi there! I don't know how it works but I went ahead and did the online form to keep my app in consideration. I think it is unlikely I'll get an offer there or by the time I do (April), I'll have already decided. Best of luck to you!

Wednesday, May 12 2010 at 08:00 PM

I received my letter from Marquette the very beginning of December. It took a little over a month to hear word. Good luck with your apps!

Loyola Chicago
Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Hey! Hopefully it is a good sign that Loyola was able to make a decision so quickly. I still show "Application Complete - Thank You". I applied part time evening. Did you apply part time?

Marquette WL
Sunday, December 26 2010 at 07:00 PM

I asked her about that scenario exactly. I said that was what I was afraid of. She said that visiting helps and calling or sending a letter once a month helps. But she warned that the earliest any decisions about the waitlist are made is usually around the first seat deposit in April and May. She then confirmed that decisions can be continued to be made right up to the first day of orientation. She sad that the closer it gets to orientation, the more the law school phones people on the waitlist to correctly gauge their interest in attending. If it is high, then you have a better chance of being accepted once a spot opens up. Very frustrating. Sorry to hear that this is your second go around on the waitlist. Best of luck!

Tuesday, March 23 2010 at 08:00 PM

Just keep in contact with admissions. I actually talked to admissions for a while after being waitlisted, I received my acceptance the next day. I'd have a LOCI on tap for the upcoming weeks. Good luck!

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Hey, I was notified by a kind of odd email from the dean saying how they were notified that I got in...I then checked my status checker and saw it changed, received a call from a current 2L and then finally received my acceptance letter in the mail. As for additional info, all I did was fill out the survey that was on my status checker after I had been deferred. Good luck!

Sunday, December 26 2010 at 07:00 PM

Nothing new on the waitlist at Marquette. I wrote a loci and someone also wrote a letter on my behalf. We will see where it gets me, fingers still crossed!

Here's Hoping
Monday, October 20 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey, no problem! Here's hoping you get my spot at Marquette!

Saturday, February 12 2011 at 07:00 PM

I took my name off the waitlist for Marquette so didn't get the email, but good luck in getting in on your cycle!

Friday, January 14 2011 at 07:00 PM

I paid my deposit at Kent and am so excited to start. I'm trying to do the early start pt and take a class this summer. Hope you get in! Good luck!

Sunday, December 26 2010 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! I hope that you hear something really soon. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Marquette Info
Tuesday, August 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Hey I just wanted to let you know that I just received a letter in the mail to send in my second seat deposit by June 1. So if anything they will probably pull off of the waitlist after that date when people don't pay.

Good for you!
Tuesday, February 10 2009 at 07:00 PM

I remember early in your cycle this year you were determined to get into Kent. Congats and good luck!
