Additional info & updates

9/28/09 - Received an acceptance package from Cooley today. They responded rather quickly, and the acceptance letter came in a manila envelope. While it is not my top pick, I was happy to receive the honors scholarship which covers 25% of tuition. Now to try to see if they will give me in state since my husband is from MI and I did my undergrad at a Michigan school.

10/05/09 - Received an email from the University of Tennessee with a link to check on the status of my application. It says I am currently under review...oh getting nervous!!

10/06/09 - Received an email from Marquette letting me know that my application is complete and is under review. They should I should hear within 8 weeks from the date the email was received. At least I got a timeline with this one.

11/4/09 - By now I have heard from every school I have applied and am just waiting on decisions. I decided to apply to Samford last night, and received an email from this morning letting me know that they had received my application.

11/30/09 - Rejected by Marquette. Small white envelope. At this point, I am not upset just happy to start hearing from schools so I can begin to narrow my list.

12/02/09 - Rough day. Rejected at MSU via status-checker.

12/16/09 - Rejected at Tulsa via snail mail.

1/13/10 - Got accepted to the Bowen School of Law in Little Rock today with an in-state scholarship, which means I am 98% sure of where I will be attending this fall. :)

1/14/10 - Accepted to OCU and waitlisted at Albany via status checker.

1/29/10 - Rejected at Louisville through mail.

2/17/10 - Rejected at Syracuse via mail. Oh well, so sad I won't be paying $43K a year to get my legal education. ;)

2/19/10 - Accepted to South Texas through email. No word on any scholarship money. Nice to know that if everything falls through we can stay here in Houston where my husband has a good job!

3/1/10 - Waitlisted at UT!! NOOOOO...the only reason I have not 100% committed to UALR is because I have been waiting on a decision from UT & now I have to wait even longer! Don't get me wrong, I am grateful it is not a no...but now I get to wait EVEN LONGER! :(

3/8/10 - Waitlisted at Samford. Decided to withdraw, since my decision is 98% made.

Good Luck on your cycle!

Good luck!
Sunday, June 28 2009 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the good luck! Hopefully we'll both be successful this cycle and get in to UT!

Thanks!!
Tuesday, August 25 2009 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! I hope you get in where you want to. I saw that we had about the same LSAT & GPA so I have been watching your schools. Looks like we are applying to some of the same ones too.

thanks for the comment

Hey, good luck with Tulsa. I will probably be giving up my seat and you'll be able to go, depending on the rest of my applications, of course. :D

Good Luck
Monday, September 07 2009 at 08:00 PM

Good luck, we are applying to some of the same schools, hope all goes well! I'll be keeping an eye on your progress.

Hey!
Saturday, June 20 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey, Sorry I just saw your comment from 3 months ago right now! Haha. This damn thing doesn't inform you when someone comments lol. Well, good luck and I agree, lets keep in touch and keep each other informed!

Hey, I noticed you said your file was under review at UT, have you still not heard anything from them? I would think that being under "review" for so long, you would have heard something by now... I am in the same boat as you are. Good luck with your cycle!

not much fun!
Monday, September 07 2009 at 08:00 PM

Saturday's LSAT was crazy. It actually seemed easier than June's, but I had quite an adventure getting there due to icy roads (slid off road twice and ended up getting a ride to test site from the cop who responded to my accident with 2 minutes to spare!) Maybe after all of that drama the test really didn't phase me that much. I just hope I don't do worse.. I see that you still haven't heard from UT. When will they begin looking at apps?

Did you go binding to Tech??

Keep truckin!

I know your first few hearbacks have been negative, but hang in there! It looks like you've got a lot to offer, and schools will see that.

Question for you. I'm from the northeast, Buffalo to be exact, and I'm looking at the schools in Texas. I know you live there, and have applied to a couple Texas schools as well. However, I noticed there are some schools in Texas that you did not apply to. Being from the northeast, I have no idea the reputation on some of these schools and was wondering if you could enlighten me on them. What's the reputation around Texas for schools like Texas Wesleyan, Texas Southern, Saint Mary's and Southern Methodist? I appreciate your input!

Congratulations on your scholarship to UALR! I cant believe it took almost four months for you to hear from them. I am already anxious and it's only been a few weeks. Good luck with the rest of your cycle!

Thank you! I am excited :) A little disappointed that there wasn't a scholarship offer, but I should have applied earlier for that! It is my first choice--let me know if you attend!

How's your application going at UT Knox.? Is it under review yet? I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!!

Congrats to you, too!
Monday, September 07 2009 at 08:00 PM

That's awesome that you are in at one of your top choices, and with a scholarship! For me, I am hoping for UK. It is the closest to where I live and the easiest commute. I was put on hold a few weeks ago and will go back up for review on Feb. 8th. I am so nervous!! Keep your fingers crossed for me!!

Thanks
Thursday, May 21 2009 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptance as well :)

Saturday, June 20 2009 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, I'd say I'm about 90% sure that I'll be in Houston come fall. Just waiting to hear back from the gf's Teach for America placement. Houston is our #1, so if that comes through for her, we'll be there. Hopefully they give us her first choice. Congrats on South Texas and Arkansas, as well. Which are you leaning towards, staying in Houston or making the move?

Sorry to head about Syracuse. I was hoping to get accepted there too. I am glad to see you in at STCL. I am hoping to receive an acceptance soon from them.

Good luck anyways...
Thursday, January 28 2010 at 07:00 PM

Sorry, i won't be taking my name off the waitlist at UTK, but I'm wishing both of us luck (as we'll need more than luck to get off it) to hear positive news from them. I've heard UALR is pretty, but I'm concerned with the portability of that degree as I'd like to come back to NC, VA, or SC. Hopefully your cycle turns out the way you want!

Did tech wait list you? I saw the dates of sent and complete but your decision was April? I'm just wondering b/c I'm wait listed there since feb...and I need to go there financially speaking...

Saturday, February 06 2010 at 07:00 PM

that is crazy, I got wait listed in feb and I interviewed w/a dean in late march...I've made it through all the wait list cuts, so I have no idea what their waiting for...3 of us interviewed on the same day, 1 got in, 1 got rejected, and I'm still in limbo...I've called and they said it could be to the end of may...they're lucky their cheap!

congrats on UALR! Was your deposit due April 15? Just wondering and waiting when the next group of wait list cuts or acceptances could happen...tech's tuition is what I need to be able to get my g/f the engagement ring she deserves!-thanks
