(I deleted some things b/c it was getting really long)

4/6/10-Well, my cycle is over. I will be attending MSU Law. When this thing started in September, I never thought I'd be going to MSU, funny how things change. UB was always my number one choice until about 2 weeks ago but I'm ready to get away from New York and try something new. I will continue to check this for sometime, if anyone is attending MSU, please contact me! I'm trying to find anyone who is going to be going there from the NY Metro area. Anyways, if anyone has any questions or whatever just shoot me a message on here. Thanks everyone and good luck to anyone who hasn't a made a decision yet!!!

Oh, one more thing. WTF Iowa. I never got a decision from you!!
.....(4/19) Finally received a decision from Iowa....Waitlisted, no surprise.


10/14/09-Still waiting, I was thinking it wouldn't surprise me if I go 0 for 14. I don't really have any safe schools, uh oh!!

10/15/09-Applied to Drexel last night. Why? No application fee and I was bored.

10/22/09-Received a fee waiver from St.Johns the other day. I grew up about 25 minutes from the campus so I took it and applied. I don't think I'll ever go there though, I have no desire to go to a school in the NY Metropolitan area.

10/27/09-Question: Is it bad that I'm not that worried? I read other peoples profiles and they're freaking out. I'm just comfortably waiting for responses, is something wrong with me?

12/3/09-First two decisions. Saw the Illinois one first, needless to say I was disappointed even though I knew I wouldnt get in anyway. But then, sitting in class I had an e-mail from Cincy on my blackberry and I'm very excited!

12/7/09-Received a large packet from Buffalo today, acceptance!! $5,0000 scholly, not sure if it's yearly or not, the letter didn't say so. It also came with a nice personalized note. Either way, I'm super excited!!!....Found out the scholly offer was for 5 grand per year over three years. AWESOME

12/14/09-Received an e-mail from Iowa saying I've been held for a 2nd review. This is way better than a flat out rejection. So It's still possible I'm accept there, which would be super cool

12/17/09-Someone called me from Michigan State and told me if I applied they could give me a full or close to full scholarship so why not. If they gave me a full it would be hard to turn down.

12/18/09-In at QU via e-mail. Should get official letter next

12/21/09-In at Hofstra via e-mail. This is looking like a pretty good cycle for me so far. However, I'm still waiting for A LOT of dings from the bigger schools......Later that day...... Received the letter from QU in the mail offering me $20,000/yr. Also in at SJU via snail.

12/22/09-In at PSU via e-mail! Very excited about this one, this has been an amazing start to my cycle!

1/8/10-In at Drexel via phone call and e-mail. $10,000 per yr as long as I keep a 2.67 GPA.

1/13/10-Received scholarship info. from Hofstra, only 25k per year. This drops Hofstra off my list. I was lightly considering them assuming they would give me 30k like every other person in my range. This is the first time in this process I'm actually kind of annoyed by something that happened to me. Seriously Hofstra?

1/15/10-Accepted to SHU via snail mai, I wont go there. Also, received e-mail from AU, waitlisted, will withdraw next week.

1/25/10-Rejected at UW via the meanest e-mail I've ever read.
.....Rejected from OSU via much nicer e-mail, and the string of rejections starts, not surprising.

1/30/10-It makes me sad when I'm rejected to schools where I had no intention of going...UConn.

2/02/10-WL'ed at IU and I'm pretty surprised, I thought for sure it was a RE. My cousin got rejected yesterday with a 163, so this makes me feel good even thought it's highly likely I won't be attending.

2/04/10-WL'ed at WF. I'm getting WL'ed at some really good schools, what do I do?!?

2/05/10-In at MSU via e-mail. Status checker says Admitted w/ scholarship, so I hope it's a full, if it's not, then I can basically cross them off my list.

2/10/10-Withdrew from 4 schools on this snowy day.

2/14/10-Close to making a decision. I'll have to ask some more questions this week and possibility by the end of the week something will be done.

3/16/10-Visiting MSU on 3/27.

3/27/10-Sitting in a hotel in nowhere Ohio...was very very impressed with MSU. I have a very tough decision on my hands.

4/5/10-Alright, story time! MSU gave me 75 percent, I asked for a full, they told me that they would get back to me after April 1st and let me know. I just received an e-mail saying they will up my scholly to a full! So it's HIGHLY likely I will be attending MSU in the fall. I will most likely secure my seat within the next couple of days. WOOT! LS for free-awesomeee.

the 158 crushed my dreams too. i retook it in sept but know i didn't do any better. good luck with your cycle! i hope everything works out for you.

Thursday, August 13 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey, similar numbers and similar schools! Good luck to you!

Saturday, June 20 2009 at 08:00 PM

UConn was the only school that need an additional letter from my undergrad school. I'm in the Honors Program here so I just went to the Honors Program Coordinator, he filled out and signed the form and I mailed it in.

good luck!
Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

thanks for your post - I'll be sure to keep track of your progress, too. It's good to know there are others out there who started this process early!

Friday, July 03 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hi! I actually got my American U acceptance via snail mail today. Good luck!!!!

Saturday, November 07 2009 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, same numbers, guessing you weren't thrilled with a 158 either? And since you are from NY, just curious, why not Syracuse? It seems like a good safety for us so I applied-- but it was hard picking NY schools because I don't know much about them

Sunday, May 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

What is your secret for an Illinois fee waiver? also, good luck, we have similar numbers. I'm impressed/jealous of how early you got everything in. :)

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

on Cincinnati! That's great - basically a top 50 school! That should bode well for other schools on your list, too.

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

on Buffalo!! I got the same scholarship offer - also not sure whether it's per year or over the course of 3 yrs! I'm so pumped about this offer - I never thought Buffalo would move to the top of my list, but it definitely just did.

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

That's awesome news! I emailed them too about the scholly and with some other questions about this other program I was accepted to so they want me to talk to someone on the phone, but they're only available between 12 - 3, which you know, is super helpful since I'm a teacher. So hopefully I'll be able to converse with someone to get some more info. on the school. This is definitely the front runner right now, it's going to take either a *very* good school, or a sweet offer somewhere else to take Buffalo off my list.

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

the Bronx. It's time to get some other posts on here so they're not all from me! Good luck with the rest of your schools, and unless I get in to Berkeley (ha!) I'll probably see you at UB in the fall!

Weird title
Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

P.S. sorry about the weird title of my last message - i accidentally typed in those letters/numbers you need to verify that you're not a spam robot. I see you're in the metro area too, we probably don't live very far from one another! Although I work in the Bronx I live in the 'burbs (without giving too much of my identity away on here, it starts with a W and ends in "estchester")

Visiting UB
Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

No, mostly because until this week it was really towards the bottom of my list. I'm going to hold off on visiting schools until I hear back from more. I signed up for the accepted students day weekend in March because it coincides with the city schools' spring break. I'd like to visit UB and other schools (if there are any others still in the running at that point) in Feb. at the latest, since some of the west coast schools I'm looking at have March seat deposit deadlines.

Congrats, and $
Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey, Congrats on St. John's! Great school, but I hear you on not wanting to stay in the metro-NYC area. Also, no specific amount from Hofstra yet, but I know I'm getting an "Honors Scholarship" - I checked on the website and the amount varies, so I'll let you know when I get the actual amount in the mail! It would really have to be one hell of an offer to get me in the door there, but hey, you never know. This cycle has been good to us so far!

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, I feel the same way about the rejections - there's a reason I haven't heard from some of these schools yet and it's because I'm in the "no" pile. What I don't understand is why they don't send out the rejections's sort of cruel. Anyway Happy Holidays and hopefully you'll get more acceptances before the New Year!

Hofstra $
Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey, I got $30k/yr at Hofstra. Very generous, but I think I would go to Suffolk over Hofstra...I'm not sure. Anyway, hope your acceptances keep coming!

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Drexel! I'm a little worried I might not get in. . .I applied in September and according to someone in the admissions office my file just went into committee today. Hmmm. Anyways, congrats again on all of your acceptances - you already have so many options!

Good point
Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Haha, very true. I actually might try to avoid the phone call to avoid that awkwardness. No, there really isn't a chance I'd go there, but I will probably have unreasonable concerns about this process until everything is over! Actually that brings up a question I have - are you going to withdraw from any schools before you decide where you're going? I'm not sure what to do, I feel bad taking a spot away from someone who really wants to go there, but I also kind of want to wait to withdraw until I've finally decided where to go.

Gr8 Cycle So far
Monday, October 12 2009 at 08:00 PM

Congrats..looks like your cycle is going well thus far. Seems as though we applied to several similar schools..I'll keep track of your progress

Thursday, September 03 2009 at 08:00 PM

good from nyc and im applying next yr... hope you get accepted into everything

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey - how come the early withdrawal from American? It's a pain to be on a wait list, but I visited AU Law last year and sorta fell in love, so I'm going to wait it out. Good luck with the rest of your apps! Is UB still your top contender at this point?

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

I'm not sure...UB is still up there, and I'm grappling w/the same issue - best school v. cost. I love american but I'm not prepared to sit around and wait for them. If I get in to berkeley then ill go, debt and all (long shot but didn't expect to make it this far w/them), otherwise its buffalo is still my best option of the schools I've already heard from.

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

About $32k for out of state, and about $18k for in-state. Not sure about how easy it is to get in-state tuition after 1st year. I get the impression that GMU is AU's conservative counterpart, so I would prefer to go to AU if I make it off the waitlist, but it's still a good option. I'll probably go visit, but now I can't decide which school I should visit in February - GMU or UB! Sort of wish I applied to way fewer schools...this is going to be a tough decision.

Thursday, August 13 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey, it looks like your cycle is going well. Mine just started, but its looking alright. Here's hoping for some acceptances to the big midwest schools!

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Sorry to hear about UW. Do you know if your status checker changed before you got the e-mail? I'm not exactly expecting an acceptance from them, just wondering if the e-mail came out of nowhere, or if they let you know they had rendered a decision first.

UW Rejection letter
Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Um, that's horrible! Was it personalized (like, we hate you and won't accept you because you suck for all these reasons...) or was it a general form letter? Who makes a *mean* form letter? Damn, now I'm scared. And that's *awesome* to hear that you're not worried about law school anymore. I'm getting there...getting some $ from Seattle was really great for me, because now it gives me a middle of the road option - less expensive than American or GMU, more expensive than Buffalo but slightly higher ranked and in a more interesting location (at least for me). I probably won't be making my final decision until April 14th lol. So have you pretty much decided on UB?

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

well, that still sucks. i've heard some schools have ridiculously nice rejection letters, i.e. Berkeley, but then there are other that are just obnoxious, i.e. UW. Anyway, I think you still have a good shot at UConn, although it would be pricey for a non-resident esp. considering your other options. It must be nice to have it narrowed down to 2! At least I feel better that you're also considering schools somewhat far apart. My top 3 at the moment are UB, Seattle, and George Mason (most b/c it's top 50, i haven't visited yet) - I feel like I'm all over the place. Anyway, looking forward to April/May when this process is finally over! Good luck with everything else. Have you officially been accepted to MSU yet?

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, it feels weird to possibly go so far away, but unfortunately UB wouldn't be the best choice in terms of location. Ill still visit to give it my full consideration, but it wouldn't be ideal location wise. I'm just really impressed with Seattles communication, and they have great public intererst programs. Plus, why not try living somewhere new? If I go to Seattle my boyfriend will probs go to U Washington for grad school.

UB Housing
Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

So, because UB is still an option, I just applied for on-campus housing (the idea of living really close to the law school given the weather up there is appealing). It was only a $25 app fee, so I figured why not - in case UB wins out in the end. Man, I really wish UB was in a better's *such* a great option in terms of cost, but really wouldn't give my boyfriend any options for grad school (closest would be Cornell or Rochester, both would mean more long distance). Ugh. This process seriously sucks. Can't wait until April.

UB on FB
Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

hahah - i had the same reaction when I joined the UB facebook group, too. I was like alright woo-hoo, what up 14 fellow potential classmates? And yeah, don't get me wrong, not complaining that i'm in a good relationship, but you're totally spot on with it being more difficult to make the decision. UB definitely would be best in terms of cost, at the same time though, I've been wanting to get out of NY state for a while (although at some point I'm not even sure how much I consider Buffalo a part of NY State or Canada?) Anyways, let the tedious process continue.

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

oops, I forgot I quit the UB Law facebook group, that was at the height of my love affair with Seattle. I don't want to re-join because the first time I did I got a million facebook messages asking me if I was going to UB Law then I had to explain this process to everyone.

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Nice, I got some law school related stuff done today, too (all city schools closed today!), but mostly fin. aid related stuff. I followed suit and tried to be a little more incognito in my profile, it seems like many users are doing that at the moment. I'm a follower, what can I say. Anyway, yeah, don't feel bad that no one messaged you, I meant my friends on facebook, not anyone in the UB group. I don't know, though, I just cleaned all the snow off car and UB is looking way less appealing. No mail today in my town because the local roads were bad - these last few schools are killing me. Congrats on being almost done!

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

congrats on being so close to making a decision! sorry you didn't get full tuition at MSU, but honestly, UB is arguably a much "better" school, especially if you want to practice in NY. Anyway, I'm eager to see where you end up! I feel like I'm almost ready to make a decision, too...but I really can't until I visit Seattle, which unfortunately won't be until the end of March/early April.

WL at UC
Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

I know! I'm freaking out a little bit. Apparently they barely go into their WL, though. One year it was 12, the most it's ever been is 40 (got this info from a published interview with the Dean of UC). Anyway, they actually rank applicants on the WL when they evaluate your application. You can't find out your actual ranking, but they'll tell me my "quartile" ranking on May 1st, so I'll have a better idea about where I stand on the WL. If I'm in a decent quartile then I'll hold out hope. The good news is Seattle isn't *that* far from wouldn't be a totally inconvenient move if I get in later in the summer. Ugh. This is awesome but totally throws me off.

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey, long time no talk! Have you visited UB yet? I'm visiting April 5th-6th because I have off from work. Right now it's between UB and Seattle. I feel so schizophrenic, because both have very different appeals and pros/cons. I was all about Seattle, but my Dad just met this alumni who is partner at a firm in Buffalo who raved about it, so beyond being a good connection, it got me interested in the school again. Plus, just not sure that a cooler city and only 12 spots higher in the rankings makes Seattle worth $55,000 grand more than Buffalo (UB would be about $30k/all 3 yrs, SU would be about $85k/all 3 yrs). Anyway, just wondering if you visited and how you liked it. I see you're visiting MSU, so I assume you haven't put a seat deposit down anywhere yet? So glad this process is winding down.

Saturday, October 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Cool - yeah, I want to sit in on a class and meet some other students, just get a feel for the school so I can make an informed decision.

Sunday, November 08 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey, just sendin some MSU love.

Thursday, January 14 2010 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on the full ride to MSU! I got the same offer and couldn't turn it down. I got in at some great schools, but honestly MSU impressed me more than all of the others. Good luck to you!

Thursday, April 23 2009 at 08:00 PM

see you in the fall! MSU is the best!!! can't wait!
