11-07-05 Deferred at Akron.
Akron stated in a letter that they would take another look at my application around February, and that they remain very interested in me as an applicant. I tend to read that with a grain of pessimism, expecting a rejection to come in the near future.
02-04-06 Accepted at Cooley with 25% Scholarship.
More relieved than excited at this point. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to attend law school this year. No matter what, I have at least a safety school lined up to have an opportunity at.
02-09-06 Accepted at Capital University.
I received an email inviting me to an Open House for admitted students, but I had not received a letter confirming my admission. I called the school and they confirmd the acceptance; saying that the email was supposed to follow the receipt of the letter. Either way, good news since I started off slow with a slew of rejected applications.
03-13-06 Withdrew from Thomas M. Cooley.
03-27-06 Waitlisted at American University.
Letter came in standard white envelope with a form to fill out and return stating what program you were still interested in, i.e. Day/Night, Full or Part-Time.
04-21-06 "Deferred" at Case Western Reserve Univ.
Letter came in standard white envelope stating that my application is on "hold." I am taking this as a deferred notification. They remain interested, and will welcome additional information to suppliment my application. A decision will be forthcoming in a few weeks.
05-10-06 Waitlisted at Cleveland-Marshall.
Received a letter today stating that I had been Waitlisted. Final decision will be by June 9th.
05-13-06 "Summer Accepted" at Case Western Reserve University.
Received a letter from Case today stating that I had been "Summer Accepted" after being deferred. They stated that their class was full at this time. If enough people do not decide to attend Case, they will start taking off this unranked list. This is probably the least concrete news I could receive at this point. I am very stressed at this time because I can't make any definite plans; potentially through the summer. Is anyone in this same situation???
06-07-06 Rejected at Ohio Northern.
Wasn't really ever planning on living in Ada, Ohio for Law School, so I really wasn't concerned about the rejection. Makes you really see why applying early is essential however.
06-10-06 Visited Capital University Law School for New Student Day.
06-12-06 Withdrew from American University's Waitlist.
06-12-06 Received letter from Cleveland-Marshall asking if I was interested in remaining on their waitlist. Replied that I was.
06-29-06 Received a call from the Akron Office of Admissions today offering admission to the Part-Time Evening Program. Strongly looking at Akron since it is closer to home and a better, less costly school than Capital.
07-05-06 Withdrew from Capital University in favor of Akron.
07-15-06 Rejected at Cleveland-Marshall. That really hurt.
07-20-07 Received acceptances from Case Western Reserve University and Maryland as a Transfer Student. Will attend Case in the Fall of 2007.
