Alrighty!!! Back at it again. I've decided to apply to law school after being rejected pretty badly in 2009. So I have applied to about 10 schools at this point.
I am currently in my second year of a Masters program at Uconn getting my Masters in Social Work. Hopefully that will reflect well for it. I took a prep course on the LSATs in hopes of getting my score a little higher. I wish law schools would accept graduate GPAs because at this point I'm at a 3.7.
While in school full time I am also a full time substance abuse counselor in a residential rehab program.
I took the October LSATs and all my applications were sent off before I took them so the wait game begins. Wish me luck.
Uber excited!! Got my LSAT score and it went up 7 points. Last time I took it I got a 141 and I got a 148 this time. Not great, but I am definitely pleased with myself because i struggle with standardized tests.
Checked my online application status at Jones School of Law....my "Decision has been rendered"... so nervous. They mailed it out on 11/3/10. Now Im gonna check the mail every day. I'm freaking out on the inside. Patience....
Checked my email this morning and I got an email for Charlotte School of Law accepting me for Fall 2011 as well as $11,500 scholarship. Super excited. Not my top choice, but definitely an option. Only thing that makes me apprehensive about attending CSL is it being a fairly new school. We shall see what the other schools decisions bring.
Finally got home from work at 9pm. Acceptance letter from Jones School of Law. I was so nervous because it came in a small white envelope. Played my life...I swore it was a rejection letter. I'm pleased with my acceptance, but am really waiting on NCCU. The waiting continues....
Random decision to apply to Mercer. They sent me an email early this month waiving my application fee so I was like "eh, y not?" We shall see....the wait continues
Merry Christmas!!! (Belated) Finally got another accepted to Florida Coastal via email with a $5,000 scholarship. Most likely will not go to FCSL especially if I get into NCCU or MCSL...more waiting...kinda patiently. O yea and I'm planning to go visit NCCU on Jan 14th if they get back to me to confirm. I'll let you know how it is.
Change of plans...got confirmation today to get a campus tour of NCCU on 1/21/11...Definitely looking forward to it...hope I like it.
TSU status checker said "Decision Rendered" on 1/8/11 and it was sent in the the mail...but its still not here. We got hit with a crazy snow storm and messed the mail all up. As well as NCCU's status checker updated the date that my file was in review AGAIN on 1/13/11, this is the second time I believe. All I can do is continue to wait....slightly impatiently at this point
Finally got the letter from TSU...waitlisted. When I applied 2 years ago I was Waitlist/Denied, this was prior to my Masters and prior to increasing my LSAT score. It make me wonder how I got waitlisted again. O well..more waiting. At least its not a no
Called MCSL because my file was complete as of 10/6/10 but I took the October LSATs and my file still hasnt been updated so I was just making sure they received my updated score which he said they did and i should be hearing a response between now and MID MARCH!!! MID MARCH!!!! omggggg....like really???? lol So did applying early really help me since it seems like people who applied after me are getting responses before me? Who knows all I can do is continue to wait.
On another note...back from my visit at NCCU. It went well, everyone was nice facility was nice. This is the 3rd school I've gone and visited and i don't know what it is, but no school has stood out to me when I get there like "This is the school I want to go to" Who knows..maybe im expecting too much. Either way it was still nice just like all the pictures and basically has everything I want in a program. Nice locations, family/juvenile concentration, not overly costly...the generals. Hopefully I'll get a response soon.
Got rejected by Mercer via email. NCCU finally says decision rendered so I'll be looking out the next couple days for what the decision is. We've been getting hit heavy by snow lately in CT and its been slowing the mail down. Hopefully i'll know by the end of next week...if not...all i can do is continue to wait. Praying on this one because the schools i've gotten into...i really don't want to go to. Im getting scared and desperate and am about to throw out some last minute applications and pray on it.
A couple of last minute late applications I intend to be putting in. Just sent off Howard and I will be sending off Southern shortly. Thinking about Tulane just for giggles and Loyola-New Orleans. All my family is down there so my mom is pushing for me to relocate so she can follow. We shall see. Just a couple more things to make me crazy I guess
FINALLY!!!!!!!!!! got home from work and guess what was in the mail? A big white envelope from NCCU. I got in! YAH!!!!!!!!!!!
Im seriously starting to think that MCSL and UDC lost my application. The status checkers both say file complete as of october and november but still not response. Im not sweating it too much since im pretty much set on NCCU but I would still like a response
WELP! I guess this is just about the end of my cycle. Still havent heard from JMLS or UDC but I cant see myself going to either of those schools so I'm not sweating it. NCCU it is....I'm happy about it after all it is my top choice. Best of luck on the rest of everyone's cycle and thanks for everyones support!
JMSL sent me an acceptance letter some time last month. I received a letter from UDC stating that I was not accepted, but now I keep receiving mail giving me my student ID and stating that I have unmet financial aid requirements. There was a mix up somewhere, but like I said they weren't my top choices and everything happens for a reason. NC HERE I COME!!!
