Additional info & updates

06/10/2009
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)

Status:

03/16/09
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!

02/26/09
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

02/15/09
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!

02/11/09
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!

01/31/09
I received acceptance from Lews and Clark!

01/29/09
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

01/21/09
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.

01/14/09
I checked online status forTemple today and it said.. decision has been made...great..looking forward to seeing if I'm in or not

01/12/09
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.

01/06/09
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.

12/22/08
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

12/17/08
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!

12/15/08
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.

12/06/08
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!

12/05/08
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.

11-21-08
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)

congratulations on W&M. i know you are pretty happy to have gotten in! i'm hoping to hear from them as well soon!

Sweeeeet!!
Thursday, August 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on W&M!!!! That's fantastic. You've got to be doing flips. To be accepted to a great school, and this early. It's all downhill from here:-)

Hey
Saturday, August 09 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on W&M. We have the same LSAT score, LOL. :)

Hey
Tuesday, December 02 2008 at 07:00 PM

good luck on with your cycle...my numers are a little bit higher than yours...but you apply early in the game...

congrats!!
Sunday, October 26 2008 at 08:00 PM

I also have low scores. It is encouraging to watch your cycle. Anyway you cut it...you are going to law school next year!!

outlook
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

I love your attitude about this whole thing.. you will be fine! CONGRATS on all the acceptances thus far!

Sunday, October 26 2008 at 08:00 PM

I would love to apply to more schools. I'm limited to the Kentucky/Tennesse area due to my husbands job...one of us needs to stay employed full-time!! :) Best of luck.

Congrats
Saturday, October 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptances so far and good luck on the rest of your cycle!

Saturday, October 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

I just read this part of your profile "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)" LOL.

UW
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

UW Madison is a great place to study. It is my first choice, unfortunately, i just finished my statement this week and sent it yesterday. I'm gonna pray

UK
Thursday, June 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

Sorry about UK, but when you are 12 points below the median LSAT I do not think it is fair for you to be mad at them. If you had a better GPA you probably had a shot, but you were pretty far below both the 25th percentiles for them. Every school has its own process. But I am sure you will enjoy W & M. Any other applicant would have been rejected outright, not waitlisted, so don't be discouraged. Good luck with your schools!

Good Luck
Thursday, June 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

Oh I understand, I probably would be a bit upset about being waitlisted somewhere. UC is a great school but as a KY resident UK is quite a bit cheaper, so I will probably be going there. Good luck with wherever you decide!

Monday, August 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

I love your attitude with applying to great schools. I also have a lower LSAT score, and have a few reach schools as well, but none in the top 100. I will be watching your updates, best of luck!

Congrats...
Tuesday, September 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

on your acceptances thusfar. I hope you hear more great news in the coming months.

Yeah!!
Sunday, October 26 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Tulane! It would appear things are looking up for you.

Wednesday, December 17 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptances! I wish i could have your luck.

Friday, November 14 2008 at 07:00 PM

congrats on your acceptances! W&M is a great school, and much cheaper than Tulane! I hope to have your luck someday! :D

congrats!
Saturday, November 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

congrats on W&M and tulane!! great schools! it's so nice to see schools are looking beyond numbers! i'm hoping for w&m myself. congrats and best of luck with the rest of your cycle

Sunday, July 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

Wow congrats on getting W&M two weeks after applying! that's great. as for me, I'm still waiting for them anxiously... W&M is def a top choice for me.

Saturday, November 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

Good luck on your cycle! We have similar numbers so I'm going to add you to my watchlist.

Saturday, November 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

thanks! i have extremely high hopes, I feel like if I don't take any chances I may end up at Florida Coastal...not like there's anything wrong with that for some...I'm trusting that God will make a way, I need to do something with this life of mine!

Thanks!
Sunday, October 26 2008 at 08:00 PM

Good luck with Georgia. Even if it doens't happend you still have some terrific options. Nice job!!

Saturday, October 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hang in there. UGA is coming!

Congrats!
Monday, August 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on the additional acceptances!

Congrats!
Friday, June 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on L&C. I got my acceptance letter this week also. Are you considering it, or are you sold on W&M?

Saturday, October 18 2008 at 08:00 PM

congratulations on your great acceptances! It's nice to know some schools look beyond the numbers...i hope they'll be just as kind to me :)

Thanks!!!
Monday, June 12 2006 at 08:00 PM

& congrats yourself on your acceptances...FYI, I have a friend that's a 2L @ UW, and if u don't get in UGA, I HEAVILY advise going there...I know W&M is "ranked" higher, but believe me when i tell u, UW is the better choice & will be well worth it...

Several reasons...
Monday, June 12 2006 at 08:00 PM

the faculty is top notch, the alumni network is much stronger since UW isn't just a regional school, like W&M... in summary, you'd pay less for a better education, with better job prospects after graduation...

P.S.
Monday, June 12 2006 at 08:00 PM

I asked my friend that goes there to tell me the biggest strength and biggest weakness of UW...biggest strength he said is the quality of ed is underrated (his sis went 2 Columbia & she felt he's learned more than her @ the same point in ed ) & the biggest weakness was the weather (sad but true, lol)...hope that helps...

No prob...
Monday, June 12 2006 at 08:00 PM

but still up 2 u...I'm sure it's a much tougher decision when you have good options...

saar
Monday, January 28 2008 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, from what I have read Wisconsin actually seems like a really gay-friendly place. I'm just hesitant about the coldness... Very jealous of your acceptance to Tulane, by the way. I've been eligible for review since November and still nothing :(

Hey
Thursday, September 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on how well your cycle is going! I'm sure you'll hear from UGA soon. At this point I'm just waiting to see what other schools I get into and the money offered from all of them. I know about UGA's network but idk if I want to pigeonhole myself into the Georgia network. I figure at least with Emory/Vandy I'll be okay for the entire East Coast. But at the end of the day...it's all about the money, lol.

sorry...
Thursday, January 31 2008 at 07:00 PM

sorry blessed, but i think you'll have to wait until the end of my cycle for me to release my preferences. i've said a little about it in my additional info, but am waiting to reveal everything until my cycle is complete, due to a little paranoia. would any of your 3 remaining schools knock you off of w&M or are you pretty decided?

Wednesday, December 03 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thank you! Congratulations on Tulane! I have been eligible for review since 11/25 and have not heard anything. UH is killing me too but its good to know that if those two fail I have UMN to fall back on. Good luck with the rest of your cycle and making a final decision!

W&M
Tuesday, January 20 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey girlie! Ummmm, UVA probably won't pick me up but if they did then I'm dropping any plans that I have to go to W&M, saying whatever to the rental debt and pissin someone off when they don't have a roommate EVEN if it's the day before class starts LMAO! Yes that's how badly I want to go back to UVA. W&M isn't too bad. I toured it UG and didn't care for it too much, but I think that has to do with the fact that I grew up 40 mins away and wanted to be a little further from my parents. Also, UVA was the best fit. But now I'm thinking about it all so differently. I actually like being closer to home now and I love the quiet surroundings of W'burg. It's not that bad if you don't mind being a little bored here and there compared to major urban/metro areas. You should go to the ASW on the 28th to get a feel for it. Let me know if you do! I put my email up there if you want more info.

Congrats
Tuesday, January 20 2009 at 07:00 PM

Oh and congratulations on your cycle as well!!! :O)

This is in response to the negative comment: Of course people with negative comments DO NOT have the balls to reveal their profiles! Cowards..figues! ha! I'd like to thank you for the lovely comment you left on my profile. I realize that you are not intelligent enough to know that perspective, life experience, and hardship all contribute to a students value to an incoming class. Also a person's life experiences and challenges they have faced can drive them to succeed and in some cases excel moreso than a student with a 3.5/168. Even if you are correct in that I will have to work harder so what..I'll do just that. Do not be blinded ny numbers. You have no idea what my background contains. And please understand that there were other "quota fillers" the top Law schools I was accepted to with 3.5/165 that they could have choosen, but they did not! Do not be bitter. if they wanted a minority with a high score they could have choosen one. Clearly I have something to offer that the other vanilla students do not.

Congrats!!
Sunday, July 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

I Will probably be seeing you at Wisco this fall :)

Wow
Sunday, July 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

Don't mind the haters. You'd be doing something wrong if you didn't have any :) Some people just can't some to terms with their own shortcomings, so attacking (percieved) AA beneficiaries is their way of coping. Anyway, look forward to meeting you this fall!

wisc!!!
Tuesday, September 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

hi!! big congrats on wisc!!! its also a top choice for me. how were you informed about your award?

WoW!
Wednesday, January 14 2009 at 07:00 PM

Yo Go! I'm sorry to read that you received negative comments but that is preparing you for what maybe later happen at UW. I hope that is not the case though...Good Luck to you and stay true!

wisc
Tuesday, September 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

hello! no unfortunately i will be traveling for work and cant make the ASW. i'm trying to check out another time to go and visit. it is def a top choice and if i were to get money from them (right now its my most expensive option) i would be able to consider it in a more realistic way. i sure hope to though.

Thursday, December 04 2008 at 07:00 PM

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!

You have no idea what is on my resume!

CONGRATS AND IGNORE IGNORANCE!!!
Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptances! I have read some of the ignorant comments written on your profile and can only say to them, please research the justifications for affirmative action before you draw conclusions on future performance in law school based merely on scores and grades. This link is a good read and it actually comes from a Dean of Admissions at a law school. http://www.deloggio.com/usnews/affaxn.htm http://www.deloggio.com/diversty/race.htm Those who judge her performance and what you may deem as being "unfair" can click on this link and learn some things. Being an AA female and completely understanding the disadvantages that exists in this good ol'US of A, I wholeheartedly give you a thumbs up!!! :-) For the individual who is Asian on here and reference his personal struggles and compared them to that of AA and hispanics here in the US, I have one thing to ask..."Why must we always compare tragedies?" That's like asking someone to compare the Holocaust and AA's being subjected to over 300 years of involuntary servitude? You don't compare the two. I have empathy for your struggles, however I suggest that you click on the link I provided above. And for the rest of you who call her situation "unfair" think of this survey that was taken: When a classroom of 29 students was asked the question, "In your next life, if you could choose your race, what would you want to be?" Mind you, this class included (mostly) white males, some white females, black males and black females. Almost the ENTIRE class chose to come back as a WHITE MALE. Some chose to become a white female, a couple of students chose to become asians, and 2 students chose to come back as black males. NO ONE chose to come back as a black female. Go figure....right? (A survey that one of my former professors chose to enlighten with a few years back)

Oh yeah...
Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

I hate to blast up your wall...lol....but these comments have only inspired me to be "informative." This comment is from the link (which the website itself is very informative and gives both sides to the "affirmative action" argument as well as helpful information on law school in general) that I posted. The Dean of Admissions stated, "Now, as to the 'we don't want unqualified minorities' line, I would assume we don't want unqualified white folk, either. Yet a number of admissions officers have told me that the rock bottom lowest numbers they took are not for minorities, but for children of wealthy alumni donors. I guess rich counts as qualified, huh?" Just some food for though....HAVE A GOOD DAY AND CONTINUE TO BE BLESSED! :-)

you GO!!
Tuesday, December 30 2008 at 07:00 PM

You Go!! and do not ever let the jealous people bring you down. You are going to law school and that is all that matters. No us low lsaters are not to be compared with a bunch of students who have no job, no family to take care of, and only time on their hands to study for the lsat. If i had 6 months to do only exclusive lsat studying, id get a higher score. They have never been challenged. Anyone white or black who has indeed been challenged in life should be encouraging you and championing your success. It is the unchallenged that cannot understand and therefore cannot empathize with you. So go and be a real attorney, not someone who can memorize minutia, pass the bar and just because they have a high number on the lsat thinks they can actually take on life. life is not that simple. it is not about the numbers and those who are blinded by this falacy will find out. Good luck!!

Welcome
Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

You're welcome :-) "Hating" can only get you but so far in this world..... Good luck again!

congrats!
Thursday, January 31 2008 at 07:00 PM

i was really happy to see that you were given a great scholarship package to Wisconsin! what a great opportunity! i think you'll love madison! may applicants would be stoked to be in your shoes right now, but don't forget to whom the praise and glory is due...

GREAT FOR U GIRL :)
Tuesday, December 02 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hey I comment in December that great that you got accpetance to Wisconsin and the full ride...did they send you a letter or they give you the award later on...also the haters who love to comment on your wall...she is a person who has the right to apply to the any law school...if the school choose to accept her than it their right...

MADISON!!!!!!!!!!
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

MADISON!...need I say more? See you on the flip side.

Wisconsin
Monday, August 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

Wow, that is sooo awesome for you about Wisconsin! Hard to say no to a free ride! Graduating from law school without any debt, man that is a dream right there! Congrats!!!!

Loser Haters
Monday, August 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

I can't believe some of the people on this website and how ignorant they are! I love the comments you posted in return to these people. You are such a strong person and I see lots of success as a lawyer for you! Continue to ignore the racists and haters like you have been and keep on being your fabulous self! Congrats on all of your successes!!!

Tuesday, November 18 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on a great cycle! Best of luck at which ever school you attend.

Thursday, December 04 2008 at 07:00 PM

Um Ella, no I don't think I'm entitled to anything. I am sorry that you do not seem to understand that the law school could actually choose URM applicants with higher numbers but they chose me. I would think that perhaps that would make you think, " hmm maybe there is something else this person has to offer." I guess you are not bright enought to consider any other factor besides GPA/score. You failed to consider my resume and many other factors that can make one diverse beyond race. How are you going to excel in law school with a closed mind! Anyone with average intelligence would have thought that there must be something more than the race because again there are URMs with higher numbers but they choose me. Do not try out for moot court because you can't see more than one side of an argument. Oh and grow some Balls!! Post your profile winner! HA!...You're a coward!

Much Success!!!
Wednesday, December 31 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations, you got into some really good schools, I'm mad I didn't apply to more t1's .. ous LSAT's? GPA are similar...Ahhhh well, and for ella it always cracks me up that the people who leave those idiotic comments never post their info. Jealousy is an ugly thing!!!! and damn I wish I had a free ride ;)

Amen!
Monday, May 12 2008 at 08:00 PM

Let your haters be your motivaters and success be your revenge! They are both personal mottos of mine. Congrats on your phenominal cycle and good luck at Wisconsin!

Hamline!
Monday, August 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey there, I just wanted to share the news... I just got my best acceptance so far, to Hamline University through their Founders Enrollment program! I am sooo excited beyond words!!

Congrats
Saturday, October 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

on your great acceptances! And especially that amazing scholarship from UW-Madison! Buy a heavy coat, dress in layers, and think warm thoughts, LOL.

Saturday, May 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

I think that the negative comments by people are unnecessary. I am against affirmative action and racial preference for the most part. However, if you succeed, then there was no mistake letting you in. If you don't succeed, then you don't. I hope that you do, and I wish you the best!

Saturday, October 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

I didn't really connect with Wash U and I wasn't impressed with their scholarship offer. I was leaning heavily towards UGA, but decided to go with Howard instead. I visited it and loved it and decided it was where I needed to be this fall.

I like you

Your profile is informative and pleasing to read. I too applied to both W&M and Lewis and Clark...hope to see you at one!

What offends people is not so much that you have gotten into a few schools where your numbers are far below their bottom quartile, but it is your attitude that "you refuse to settle for a bunch of fourth-tier schools". There are many people with much higher numbers that have to do so. When you put down a school like Florida Coastal (even though you're quick to say that you don't mean to), you come off as if you think you are too good to go to school like Florida Coastal...and in reality, you are actually not. I'm also a URM, but I'm not going around saying that I refuse to settle for anything less than a top school, b/c my numbers might not get me there. When you say "I would NEVER attend a school that waitlsit me, EVER!." You should be thankful that a school is waitlisting you instead of flat out rejecting you based on your numbers. Re-evaluate how you come off, that's all. I def. don't think the LSAT is a good predictor of future success, but just think how others (including other minorities with compelling stories) feel when they get rejected and see someone like you getting into schools and then mocking lower tier schools.

Good for you, stand by everything you say (even if you come accross extremely conceited). I hope people don't look at all of us minorities in the same way because we all don't feel self-entitled because just because we have "something to offer". It is not jealousy or bitterness I'm speaking out of, because I haven't even applied, but I decided to post on your wall, so people don't think it's only the "white folks" "hating" on your success.

Congrats on WI!

Congrats on the full scholarship at WI...I know you've had a lot of comments on here (and some truly distasteful ones, at that), but I just thought it was so cool that you got a full ride! See you in the fall :)

Absolutely! How about you? I need to check out apartments, etc as well...eek!

All the best of luck to you and I hope you rise to the challenge and come out successful! Have you decided on a school yet? Tulane is wonderful (I am a Louisiana native)- you have great choices - did you send a LOCI to any of these schools during the process? Congrats again - may your future be bright.

LMAO...a retard minority that thinks having the right skin color for admittance means the school saw something special in her intellectual background. Honestly, Blessed, would you trust someone that scored 148 to litigate a complex business transaction? You will be very "blessed" to make it through law school at a rank (top 10 percent) that allows you to get a job. Because, you know, U of W actually has people that score above retarded on their LSAT. Whether you like standardized tests or not, the fact is the LSAT is the best indicator of law school success and percentile ranking. Even if you get the rank, very few firms higher 35-45 year old grads with a pathetic employment history. Especially in this economy. Good luck!
