Thank you all so much for all the support and positive feedback! :)
I would like to clear something up regarding my scholarship to WI, I am sure this will make some of the haters feel better. I received a full ride for an in-state student. I am an out of state student so I have still have some tutition to pay. But at the end of the day it is still an awesome deal! :)
I could delete all the negative comments but I love it! I love the jealousy and bitterness! It does nothing but motivate me! Thank you so much haters for helping me strive even more to succeed! Clearly I have something to offer that other students don't! Oh and I wouldn't suggest attending law school if you have not considered that maybe there were factors that contributed to my low GPA/Score other then "oh she's not smart" Open your minds!..You need to be open to both sides of an argument and understand that looks (numbers) may be deceiving! You have no idea what is on my resume!
I decided to post on here b/c the profiles i've reviewed over the past year have been very helpful in my school selection. If it weren't for a particular user I would have never applied to William & Mary! Her numbers gave me hope. I hope that my cycle results will be helpful to other perspective students.
I refused to settle on a bunch of teir 4 schools. The most important thing to me is that I am actually able to obtain a job after school! Rankings, bar pass rate and employment placement were very important to me when selecting schools. I think my chances are pretty good at some of the higher ranked schools because I have a very diverse background, it goes beyond the fact that i'm black.
I worked very hard on my personal statement focusing on what I could contribute to the schools.
With my LSAT and GPA being low I know that some of my schools are long shots but again I refuse to settle on somewhere like Florida Coastal ( no disrepect to anyone who applies there)
um sooo the best thing that could possibly happen to me today did...a free ride at Wisconsin!!! I feel so blessed it's insane! I am beyond grateful not to have to be in a huge load of debt! Thank you God! So yes I will be attending Wisconson!
I received financial aid pack from W&M..it was great but I will be in SUPER DUPER debt! In other news...I w/d from Howard..pointless considering I refuse to attend there..So at this point if U of W gives me a scholrship I'll attend there..if they don't I'll go to W&M..um yea
Received rejection letterfrom UGA! I'm not upset b/c I truely don't want to be in the south. I want to work in Boston or DC so it's good that I don't have to contemplate going to UGA b/c of the in state tuition factor...so U of W or
W&M it will be!
So I called UGA today..I'm at my witts end..lol..they sd my application is on hold...not waitlisted but on hold...sd interested but just not sure yet..hmmm grrreat..guess I'll just wait itout!
I received acceptance from Lews and Clark!
It is taking UGA forever to send me a decision! it's driving me BONKERS!!! PPL where is my letter???..put me out of my misery..lol lol
I received a rejection letter from Temple yesterday, but I was not upset at all considering that i've been excepted to better schools. Like I said before the lower ranked ranked the school the more concerned they are with numbers. I am so glad I actually applied to schools that I considered far reaches. Although I'm waiting on letters from several schools; I know that I will not attend any school other than Wisconsin, W&M or UGA if I'm accepted there.
I checked online status forTemple today and it said.. decision has been made...great..looking forward to seeing if I'm in or not
I received my acceptance letter in the mail from Tulane! Yippie! It came in a cute little Tulane tote bag. Anywho they gave me $10,000 which is not enough money for me to choose them over W&M. W&M gave me no money but their tuition is still the same as Tulane even with the $10,000.
I received an accepted email from Tulane today!!! Very excited about the possibility of attending!! The email said my packet is on the way. Hopefully they give me money if not NO deal.
I received a letter from the University of Kentucky today. They waitlisted me. I don't care. I'll withdraw today. I do not want to attend a law school that doesn't want me. I'm finding that the higher ranked the school is that more emphasis is placed on the entire application not just the score/gpa, but lower ranked schools only care about score/gpa in a n attempt to boost their rankings. Whatever.
Please know: I would NEVER attend a school that waitlsit me..EVER! I want to attend a school that actually wants me! I can't imagine going into debt at a university that just settled on me..um no!..unless it was like Stanford..lol
Checked status checker on Tulane this morning and Finally my application is under review!! Great considering it's been complete for over a month now! But considering my #s are so low I guess they are in no rush to review my application. :( The issue is that I doubt they'll give me money so even if I get in I can't attend w/ their crazy tuition!
I talked to a dean and to alumni from U of Wisconsin today and both were very informative. I think I may end up at Wisconsin because I think i'll feel comfortable, and at ease there. Speaking to the the alumni was great. She definietly was a great help in my decision making process.
So the GOOD news first I received an acceptance letter from U of Wisconsin!! I love U of WI ...I've read many great things about the school. I'm heavily considering accepting.
BAD news...Rejection letter from U of MN! But i'm okay with it since I have Uof WI and W&M thus far!
tt admissions and checked online status for U of MN (My 1st choice) the decision letter has been mailied! OMG! so anxious and nervous...if I get in i'll be jumping for joy..if I don't I won't be surprised because it's a far reach so I'll live.
I received an acceptance letter from William and Mary only 2 wks after applying! It came via fed ex! I could 't believe it! I was super happy. It's a great school! if I don't get accepted anywhere else I'll be more than happy to attend here. (no money from them but still feel blessed just to get in)
