Will add an addendum to applications


*With all decisions in I have decided to pay my seat deposit and will be enrolling at Georgia State Law assuming I am not removed from any waitlists before July

2/6: Received Denver acceptance, included modest scholarship amount; visited school and met with financial aid to possibly secure more $

3/8: Rejected at Washington and Lee, no great surprise but thought I would at least try

3/15: "Priority Waitlisted" at Colorado, thought I was going to be flat-out rejected so not as bad as it could be; will remain on waitlist for a while since they are a top choice, especially if the priority list is actually different

3/19: Accepted at Maryland, no mention of scholarship in decision notification; called the financial aid office and they said that it is sent separately so I will hold out for now

3/27: Finally received acceptance notification from GA State via email. Called about scholarship and they said any info would be sent separately

3/29: Received scholarship notification from Maryland. It is a fairly significant amount disbursed over 3 years

3/29: Waitlisted at George Mason, will remain on it like Colorado to see what happens but was a bit of a reach school anyways so not disappointed

4/1: Received scholarship notification from GA state; small, but meaningful, amount off 1L year then a full tuition waiver + cash stipend for participating in a "Graduate Assistantship" as a 2L and 3L

4/11: Rejected from George Washington, not a surprise like Washington and Lee, applied to play the field and see what might happen

4/25: Waitlisted at UGA, thought it might happen but still just a tad disappointed, will remain on waitlist until August
