Additional info & updates

--going to an interview @ campbell u. on 1/4/07

--i received an email from w and l admissions titled "good news" and u know the rest....i was so stoked!!!!!

--got accepted to campbell early feb

--got accepted from u of ark prolly mid feb

--got accepted from widener late feb

--3/9/07...on spring break, on friday, received my acceptance to usc and they are offering me 15,000 merit scholarship (5000 per year) it is tempting but its not my ideal law school. we'll see...still haven't decided yet...hopefully nccu will come thru soon b4 april 1!

-3/14/07 at this point i'm so confused right now...but i'm certain that my top choices are nccu, w&l, and usc when i got my first acceptance from w&l i was so gungho about it and then i started thinking to hard and doubting myself and my capabilities and my fin capablities to deal with a school thats in a pricerier region in va-->higher cost of living-->higher board expenses and overall its lil over 50,000 plus a year. on the other hand coming from a small town i would like the evironment and close knit community w&l has now if they dont have transit system which i assume they dont that would suck b/c i dont have a car.
on the other hand usc and nccu are located in larger locations that have transit system. both are more diverse esp nccu and nccu has a good reputation in nc. i ideally wanted be located in nc and not in sc. and at one point i was really determined to get out of the state but now i'm starting to think more and more about usc since i got their acceptance this past friday. usc would defn push me outta my comfort zone i would think but it prolly would be for the better...ugh....i dunno...

4/18/07 I have been decided this about 3 weeks ago...Some people out there may call me crazy for my decision...but after a lot of thinking...i decided with usc.
wl.....i am just not feeling 36ish thousand in loans the first year esp when i dont have mommy,daddy,trust fund, or savings to depend on... plus i would get homesick lol...
i am not concerned about which has the highest ranking and where u most likely to get better offering of jobs...if god got me thru this far hes gonna make sure i'll have the job i want when 2010 rolls around...if i spent time worrying about bob,dick,harry all the time i would never be happy....nccu is still bs'ing their time...but whatever...

Thank you for the encouragement. I'm really trying not to get my hopes up though. I know my qualifications aren't as strong compared to other people's. Your GPA is really high, so I'm sure you will get into at least one of the schools that you applied for. Good luck with everything!

congrats!!!
Thursday, January 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

on W&L. I knew you will get in! When did you apply and when did they notify you? I'm a bit anxious myself. I hope I get accepted :(

Congrats
Friday, November 10 2006 at 07:00 PM

on your acceptance to W&L!! WTG, they're in the top 25, so you've done well.

WOOHOO
Tuesday, January 02 2007 at 07:00 PM

Girl whats up?? Your kicking but on acceptances!

yep
Tuesday, January 02 2007 at 07:00 PM

We soo need to pray on the nccu thing, I hope we both get in there!! Then we can work in NC and make lots of money and tell stories about how hard the application process was lol

Congrats on UALR

That's one of my top choices. What is your first choice?

Campbell
Thursday, September 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

No word yet on any financial aid from Campbell. I would not worry about your lsat too much though, obviously USC and W&L saw something they really liked. Congrats and the best of luck to you, I hope everything works out for the best.

Good Luck

AA PROLLY SO BUT DONT DARE INADVERTENDLY QUESTION MY CAPABILITY AT W&L OR ANY LAW SCHOOL WITH GOD ON MY SIDE AND DETERMINATION AND HARD WORK, I PLAN ON SUCCEEDING AND U CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK.

CORRECTION ...U ARE NOT MAN OR WOMAN ENOUGH....

Is this profile real?

Did you really get into W&L with a 148. If so that is awesome. If I were you I'd go there over Campbell in a heartbeat. Which schools are you considering at this point? Best wishes with everything.

Hey
Wednesday, November 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

I would warn you against Campbell. I go to undergrad there and it is not worth the money at all, trust me. Minority rate is low period, at the u-grad and law school. And don't be intimidated by not being able to perform at W&L. You can do well. I don't think you'll be able to take your Central degree outside of NC but if you wanted to practice in-state it might be a good idea. But be warned they have a really high attrition rate. Bottom percentage of the class gets dropped after spring grades I think. And I feel you about money. COL in Durham and Lexington are relatively in-expensive in comparion to some other places. I wish you the best in whatever decision you make.

Wednesday, November 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

Actually I don't have a top choice. I don't really like W&L at all and after doing u-grad at Campbell I am def not going there b/c it's not worth it. Outside of that I have absolutely no idea what I am going to do.

congrats
Thursday, January 25 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hey good job, and Im sure youll find success at whatever school you choose. We live in Durham, about 10 minutes from NCCU and we love it. Feel free to e-mail me if you need any info. If its not too late, you should think about applying to UNC Chapel Hill because you would have a great chance getting in. Keep your chin upyou deserve it and dont let anyone say otherwise.

Thursday, February 23 2006 at 07:00 PM

email me and I'll tell you all about it.

So what are ya gonna do?
Sunday, November 26 2006 at 07:00 PM

Great job with your acceptances! Im sure you worked very hard! Im crossing my fingers at this point! Have you made any decisions since you last posted on 3/14?

OMG
Tuesday, January 02 2007 at 07:00 PM

Girl the stress the stress, simple should have called himself simpleminded.

Wednesday, August 24 2005 at 08:00 PM

How long ago di you hear from South Carolina? Are you considering going there?

Thursday, September 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on being able to reach out and show your intelligence though your application to W&L and I commend them for being different and NOT just looking at the numbers. You OBVIOUSLY have something that appealed to them and for that reason I am sure you will do just fine if you do choose to go there. Its comments like the ones that everyone made anonymously that make me mad, but oh well let them be stupid. Back to W&L, my boy goes there and he loves it. But either way, be blessed with whatever decision you happen to make. I am positive that you will be successful wherever you decide to attend!

Great Job!
Monday, March 26 2007 at 08:00 PM

It's not just that your determined and hardworking enough, but that you are exceedingly intelligent. A 3.9 through any college is no simple task, so don't let anybody get you down. You are going to rock at W&L!!!

Congrats on W&L
Sunday, February 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

It's great that you got accepted to W&L and if you do choose to go I hope to join you there. I have been placed on their waitlist and I wanted to know if you have any advice far as someone who I can contact in admissions or a professor who would speak with a prospective student.

Help!!
Wednesday, July 11 2007 at 08:00 PM

I just took the test again and did not get much higher. Any words of advice? I am trying to get into usc (south carolina) and I decided to apply anyway. If you have time could you email me with any helpful information. Thanks
