PS was really good (concerned obstacles overcome to get where I am today...) after the 45,679 attempts to make it ideal...

Sent out my applications a little later than I wanted to, but I am hoping for the best!

11/3 - Got e-mail from Suffolk , SMU, and USF that they received my application. Also got a postcard from UMiami that they received my app as well and it was complete (nothing was checked off as missing).

11/6 - Considering applying to Pacific-McGeorge and Southwestern - if I do apply, it'll have to be this week so I'm not too late in the game.

12/2 - Received acceptance letter from University of Miami today - YAY! Letter was in standard business-size envelope but the envelope but had three other papers included with the letter so the envelope wasn't too thin. I am really considering this school - first acceptance so far!

12/14 - Received acceptance letter from University of San Diego today - another YAY! Letter came in a manila letter-sized envelope (not standard business envelope) and was very thin so at first I thought it would be a rejection, but sure enough, I'm IN for the evening program!

12/20 - Received phone call from SMU - Dedman! I'm in for the part-time program! Acceptance materials are in the mail!!! Triple YAY! =)

12/22 - Great week for responses! Got acceptance letter via snail mail from Santa Clara U! Applied EA. No mention of money though, but oh well. Applied to both programs and got into full-time program!!! Quadruple YAY!!!

1/9 - After the dry spell in regards to responses, I got an acceptance for the evening division at Suffolk Law - yay! Definitely a school to consider as I wouldn't have to relocate and could work at my current job... Oh, acceptance came in big white (8 1/2 by 11) envelope and there was a nice folder in the envelope so it was pretty sturdy.

1/27 - Well, looks like my acceptance streak is done as I got waitlisted from American today. Waitlist papers came in an envelope that is about half the size of an 8.5x11 envelope - it was bigger than a regular business envelope. It also came regular mail as opposed to priority (which is what the acceptances came in from what I've seen here). I don't think I'll stay on the waitlist and will most likely withdraw so others can have the spots that free up.

2/5 - Got waitlist letter from U of San Francisco today. Knew it was waitlist before I even opened the envelope (probably due to the recent wave of waitlists that I've been seeing here and just had a gut feeling). Envelope was standard business sized (white) envelope and you could tell there was more than one paper in there before even opening it. I'm kind of surprised by the WL as my LSAT falls in the range but then again, it was probably my average (which is lower than what I have posted) that killed me as USF still takes averages. Oh well...

2/7 - Yay, waitlist streak may be over as I got a phone call from SLU today offering me admission in both programs (PT & FT). So that is another option . Yay!

2/9 - What a week for acceptances! Got a phone call today from Loyola - Chicago congratulating me on my acceptance and that acceptance materials have gone out in the mail! Even though I'm set on going to San Diego - I really want to keep this an option...

2/20 - I GOT INTO LOYOLA - LA TODAY!!!! YAY YAY YAY!!!! Just waiting for this school was giving me an ulcer so I'm more than ecstatic about this acceptance!!! Admission letter came in big white envelope and letter itself was in a Loyola folder. =) So happy!!! This was a reach for me...

Congrats on your UM acceptance --- I'm starting to consider it a little more every day! Have you visited yet/ are you planning on visiting?

congratulations on miami!

Thanks!

Thanks for the congrats. It was a thick letter-sized package, USPS, that didn't fit in my mailbox so it was behind the front desk. Upon opening it, it was a blue folder with a welcome letter, course catalog book, and instructions for setting up online access. Good luck! :)

Congrats on USD. That's a great school. Weather is incredible. If you don't get into Loyola, or if USD throws a lot of money at you, I would seriously consider it. Good luck!

Thanks!!! I definitely wasn't expecting to hear from them so soon so it was an awesome surprise! :) No, unfortunately I haven't heard anything about scholarships yet (:() but here's to hoping!!! Congrats on USD, btw!

Awesome job on USD. I am originally from SD, and that is a great school. With a lot of luck I will be there in the fall (and I mean a lot of luck!). Best of luck to you the rest of the cycle.

Congrats!

Congrats on SMU! It looks like we applied to a lot of the same schools - good luck on the rest! Maybe I'll see you in the fall :)

Congrats on SMU, did they send you any info in the mail after they called?

you'd love the change in weather from boston to dallas

PT vs FT?
Wednesday, August 30 2006 at 08:00 PM

What are your thoughts on doing PT over FT? I am looking at both types of programs. Thanks and CONGRATS!

Congrats on Loyola!
Tuesday, October 03 2006 at 08:00 PM

I just got my acceptance to PT today and am over the moon! Looks like we'll be classmates then? I already live & work in LA (though I'm from the Amherst area) - e-mail me if you want to chat about LLS, LA or whatever!

Are you going to withdraw from SMU, since you are planning to attend Loyola?
