Additional info & updates

Finished all applications by 11/4.

Accepted at the U (Miami) on 11/17.

If i choose to go to Miami I'm recreating the Seventh Floor Crew in honor of Greg Olson.

Accepted at Denver on 11/30.
17,000 renewable scholarship.

I'd rather be in South Beach, but always gotta consider the money.

Surprising waitlist at Depaul on 12/12. Figured I was close to a lock there.

Accepted at Louisville on 12/29. Nice handwritten letter from a professor telling me how much he enjoyed my personal statement.

Rejected at UGA via status checker. I knew it was a long shot. I grew up in ATL and am a big Dawgs fan. This season Stafford and Knowshon disappointed me, now the law school has disappointed me.

Deferred at Kent today. Guessing its similar to waitlist. Not disappointed at all. Chicago is supposed to be -8 tomorrow. I've been in the midwest long enough.

2/23- Came back from Mardi Gras to find a letter from FSU with a waitlist. Pretty surprised by this, as I figured based on this site I would probably be in. Oh well, hopefully get off the waitlist at some point.

2/23- Accepted at South Carolina today with a 15k scholarship per year. Pretty happy to get an acceptance after that FSU waitlist.

2/26- Changed to Under Review, Decision Pending at Florida today. Joining the rest of the people with my numbers which I have read means waiting til end of March or early April.

3/9- Straight up Rejection by Florida. I can continue to hate Urban Meyer.

Similar numbers indeed

Hey! I'm not exactly sure of my top choice - I'm from Iowa, so I'd love to go there. However, I'm more interested in University of Florida's tax law program and great study abroad options. What about you?

Saturday, October 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

On Miami! I just got accepted today as well! Still waiting on Georgia!

Sunday, November 09 2008 at 07:00 PM

Yea I know I check up on your acceptances pretty regularly for that same reason. I dunno top choice is probably Tulane

Congrats on Miami!

re: congrats
Thursday, July 03 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Miami to you as well! DePaul actually sent me this cool T-Shirt yesterday, so that's brownie points. I think you have a great shot there. OSU is my top choice, then my hometown Pitt, but Chicago wouldn't be a bad place to live for three years (or longer)

Monday, June 11 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thank you for the congrats! Florida is the one school that's throwing me off from automatically going with Iowa. They haven't notified many people yet, and I'm getting so anxious!

Monday, June 11 2007 at 08:00 PM

IMHO, DePaul is full of crap. They waitlisted me last cycle. They are ranked 100 on USNWR and yet they waitlist like they're ranked in the top 50. It's annoying. Don't worry - I'm sure you'll be admitted outright lots of other places.

Saturday, October 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

on Denver. BU or WashU is my #1. But more realistically SLU or Mizzou probably.

Friday, September 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'll be getting my bachelor's from UIS in IL, but I've been all over. It'd be cool if I got in to W&M, but in reality I'll probably go where the best offer is ($$$). Congrats on your acceptances, and Good luck with the rest.

Tuesday, September 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey, thanks for the comment...sorry it took so long to get back to you! We have exactly the same numbers and a lot of the same schools, so I'll be interesed to see how your cycle goes! I m having a hard time deciding what my first choice is-I'm from Alabama, so I'd love to go there or anywhere in TN, GA, or the Carolinas! How about you?

Sunday, July 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

What are your thoughts on UofL? Did you think you will end up going there?

Wednesday, December 03 2008 at 07:00 PM

Not sure where my number one is yet. My top locations are Atlanta, NY/NJ, and Denver. We'll see where I get in! I keep getting the urge to submit a few more last minute apps... am I the only one?

Monday, June 11 2007 at 08:00 PM

I've been "Under Review by Committee" for over 2 months. It disappears for short periods of time (all morning today), but then reappears with a new date under it.

Tuesday, September 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, UF went into committee review on the 16th of December. It's kind of annoying to have it sit there like that for so long. Now that Tebow is coming back for another year, I'm really anxious to hear back from them! It's hard to think about leaving this place when we win National Championships lol. Anyway, I'm sure you'll go into review soon...I dont think they've said Yes or No to many people yet. P.S. I think it's kind of funny that we got rejected from UGA on the same day :)

Tuesday, September 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

Has your file gone into review yet? Mine went from "In review" to "Committee Reviewed: Decision Pending." I'm annoyed I have to wait so long to hear back from them, but I guess it's good they didn't flat out reject me! :)

denver $$
Tuesday, January 06 2009 at 07:00 PM

hey, how did denver tell you about money? Was it in the same email or a separate piece? Best of luck!

Tuesday, September 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

Yeah I just saw your reply on TLS lol. I'm so obsessed with these two websites...it's just sad. I hope that we both got in FSU!! And yeah, my phone has rang a few time and I've gotten butterflies every single time. Let me know when/if you get your call! Looking on FSU's page here, it doesn't look like anyone has been rejected yet. So unless we are in the first batch of rejects, I think we may be in :)

Hey :)
Tuesday, September 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

I see you've gotten the exact same things as me with FSU and S. Carolina...no surprise there I guess! Hope Marti Gras was fun!

Southern Law Schools
Monday, February 02 2009 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on your schools man, I am still considering Miami but knowing me I will be too distracted down there. Just curious if you were thinking about going to a school down south because I have heard that even if they are good they are viewed in a different light than other schools in the North. You hear anything like this?

Monday, June 11 2007 at 08:00 PM

Sorry to hear about Florida. Seriously...what is their deal? What's your top choice right now?

Sunday, July 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptances, but I'm sorry to hear about UF. Just out of curiosity, how did you find out? Did it get sent to your home or school address? I'm still anxiously waiting...thanks!

Monday, December 15 2008 at 07:00 PM

I too received a cold rejection from UF....we have similar numbers and I have yet to hear from FSU and FIU, but was accepted to UMiami so that's good... I also noticed that all the rejections have posted on here in the past three days...

Sunday, July 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

Oh right, missed that on your profile. Oopsies! Thanks for letting me know. I'm there now, so I'm torn about whether I want to get in or not...if that makes sense. Let me know if you end up at FSU/UM as I may end up there. Good luck with the rest of your cycle!
