Additional info & updates

10-25-09 I just got a fee waiver from Cardozo! I wasn't expecting that given my numbers. Hopefully I'll get in. Went to an open house at Seton Hall this weekend. Going to Visit Rutgers on Tuesday. Should be fun!

11-11-09 Most of my apps in. I would really like to start hearing from schools before the new year.

12-5-09! Dinged by UG...Not that I wanted to attend there, but it still hurt a little. Well at least I had a fee waiver for that school

12-9-09 ACCEPTED TO RUTGERS NEWARK!!!! This was my number one choice of school so I am pretty happy! : )

12-10-09 Accepted to Widener. Not that I wanted to go to Widener, but it's still good to be in!

12-16-09 In at Rutgers Camden! excited because it was my number 2 choice. The personal email commenting on my PS was a nice touch. To be honest with my UGPA I didn't think that I would get into most of the schools I applied to. To say I feel lucky is an understatement.

1-5-10 Out at Georgetown! Not at all surprised. If I had gotten accepted, it would have been the worlds biggest upset! Not this year. Oh well, Rutgers remains my number 1.

01-11-10 Out at DePaul. Oh well, From here out, outside of Fordham, I am pretty settled on Rutgers. Howard wants more info from me so I am thinking about withdrawing my app.

1-23-10 Dinged at Cardozo. Someone with my numbers was placed on hold last year so I was expecting the same. Not. So. Lucky. 4-5

1-14-10 Dinged at Seton Hall. The school was to expensive for me. but it still hurts! 3-4 so far. I need a W pretty soon. I want to end this cycle above .500

1-15-09 In at Loyola! This is good news because I am considering relocating to Chicago. I also was placed on Hold at Univ of Ill. It's not a rejection so I'll take it. It just sucks that I will have to wait two more months before I find out the final decision.

02-12-10 Dinged at Dever, in at NYLS, and Waitlisted at Illinois! Where is the love. Unless I get into Fordham or moved of the waitlist at Illinois. It looks like I'll be attended Rutgers! Glad this cycle is almost over.

2-17-10 In at Lewis & Clark. It wasn't a front runner but they are gonna pay for me to fly out to Oregon and check them out, so why not? Also found out I got $7500 in scholly money from Loyola. So things just got interesting again. I was settled on Rutgers but now I am not sure. I got rejected at Fordham, no suprise there.

3-13-10 Waitlisted at Temple. I'm a little shocked because a friend of mine got in with similar numbers last year. Plus they took forever to get back to me! 4 MONTHS! That's insane. anyways to be honest temple was off the list because i didn't get a great vibe when i went to visit. It also would be more expensive that Rutgers Camden, another Philly area school. So thanks but no thanks to the waitlist!

3-20-10 Visited Lewis & Clark and Loyola. But great schools. Just not sure if I am ready to relocate.

3-30-10 Rejected from Howard (Shocker) and Houston (Not surprised). Glad this cycle is over. I got into my number 1 school. Happy to say that I will be attending a great school this fall, Rutgers. To everyone who thinks it can be done if your numbers aren't so great, let me be an example that all things are possible. Never give up hope.

You have chosen excellent schools. I am sure you will do well. Just wanted to say good luck on your cycle. God bless.

Thursday, September 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Good luck on your cycle! We're applying to a lot of the same schools. My numbers are not great, so we'll see how it goes. How did you get your fee waiver for Georgia State? I've just been emailing around to get a bunch.

Great job. Now, I'll watch you change your mind several times over the next few months as the other acceptances roll in.

Monday, June 29 2009 at 08:00 PM

Yea, we really have applied to a lot of the same schools- good luck to you as well! I see you got your Rutgers Newark decision back. Did you receive an email or did you keep checking your status online?

Sunday, October 26 2008 at 08:00 PM

Maybe we will! Congrats on both acceptances!

Hey

Rutgers
Saturday, September 12 2009 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on RU (x 2)! I thought about applying there, but really don't intend to practice in NY, Jersey or PA. At least we both have acceptances, so we'll see how it goes from here. We're representin' for the graybeards!

I came across your profile and we've applied to alot of the same schools, and I'm looking to go to school in Jersey as well. When you applied to Seton Hall did you fill out the additional application for the LEO program?

Congrats!

Congrats on all your acceptances and good luck on the rest of your cycle! Have fun checking out Oregon!

Congrats on Lewis and Clark-I sure hope I get an acceptance and can make it to the Admitted Students Day! Congrats on your other acceptances as well!

Temple
Friday, July 31 2009 at 08:00 PM

If you are not planing on attending Temple can you please withdraw from the waitlist because it is my top choice. Thank you and good luck wherever you end up.

You Rock!
Tuesday, March 02 2010 at 07:00 PM

Great to see your acceptances given your numbers (almost exactly the same as mine) - good luck in the rest of this cycle! Having crappy GPAs from years ago sucks!

Sunday, May 16 2010 at 08:00 PM

If you aren't attending Loyola can you please withdraw? I'm waitlisted at Loyola and it is my first choice! Thanks :-)
