3-4-10 Received a package from Howard with a 15k a year scholarship, with WAY too many stipulations! (I was warned about this from a Howard alum, he said a lot of people lost their scholarships when he was there because of all the conditions attached.) Glad to have finally heard something! I will be withdrawing from all other schools asap.

2-18-10 Received a letter from Cornell saying that I was put on reserve. I am glad to finally have heard something, now I can withdraw my application

2-9-10 Honored to receive a full scholarship from Southwestern. The Wildman/Schumacher Scholarship. I have to maintain a 2.5

2-2-10 Accepted at GGU via snail mail. Received the Faculty Scholarship of 60k as long as I keep a 3.0 and I was accepted to the Public Interest Scholars Program with another scholarship of 15k. So 25k a year in total scholarships. Also, and invitation to enroll in the Honors Lawyering Program. There are like 8 letters in this package! They have a great program for Public Interest Law.

1-28-10 Had my Southwestern scholarship interview, it seemed to go very well. Lets hope the money follows.

1-25-10 I just realized I had been dating everything 09 SMH. Withdrew from NYLS not enough scholarship money for me to attend. Withdrew from Cardozo. LOVED that school, but just cant see paying that price tag. Honored to have been accepted there though. They are so personable and detailed, I mean great place. *removed some notes, this was getting long.

1-14-10 Missed a call from the Dean of Admissions at Cordozo, but she left a message saying that I had been accepted and the package was going in the mail today. Pretty cool!

1-11-10 Accepted at Southwestern, they want to come interview for a full scholarship! They mailed everything on the 8th. $20,000 a year from Miami as long as I maintain a 2.5.

12-14-09 Called The U to ask if I had went complete, and the lady told me I had been accepted and that I should get a letter in the next few days!!!! (I AM SOOOOOO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!) Words cannot express how I feel right now. Got home and acceptance package was in the mail!

12-12-09 Got my first acceptance today! Came in the mail in a big white envelope. FYI-My status checker never changed from Application Complete.

11-25-09 Sent out my first set of apps. Feels sooo good! I will probably send out the rest after the Holiday. I also received a fee waiver from Cornell (HMMMM?????) and Maryland (right after I took them off the list) How about them apples?

11-14-09 My first LOR showed up in the LSAC system. It was mailed out on Monday or Tuesday and was in the system by Saturday. Not too bad. Now two more to go!

Thanks and good luck to you too! I am sure you will be getting an acceptance from Miami soon. They were pretty quick :)!

I'm jealous of your open houses

I am in the south, so I can't make it up for personal visits. Love the D.C./MD area from past visits though. Thanks for posting your insights. Good luck on all your schools. I will be sending in American next week. Going to apply to GWU just for grins, but I don't have any illusions.

New York Law School is a decent but low ranked school. Better career opportunities than you'd suspect because they have tons of successful alumni that work to get students jobs, at least if the students put enough effort into networking. Still, it's an expensive school. Only worth it with a nice scholly, especially ITE.

good luck

hey thanks for the message and good luck to you as well! i live right across the street from UM and spent all my LSAT study time in their law library. My fiance goes there so if you have any questions about UM I could probably help you. I'll be in the Baltimore area around thanksgiving so hopefully I can drop by and check out the law school, but thanks for giving me an idea of what you saw there.

Friday, September 25 2009 at 08:00 PM

thanks! I hope you have a great start to your cycle as well! Good luck!

Thanks
Friday, September 18 2009 at 08:00 PM

Nice Selections

You have some great schools on your list...I think you are going to have a very pleasing cycle! Just wait for all those acceptance letters to start rolling in! keep in touch

Complete at UB?
Wednesday, October 21 2009 at 08:00 PM

The waiting is excruciating. Did UB email you? I'm still not complete there.

thanks!
Wednesday, March 25 2009 at 08:00 PM

yea.. they sent a complete / under review email but there was no status checker link or option. They just said a decision would be rendered in less than 6 weeks.

Tuesday, November 17 2009 at 07:00 PM

LOL Thanks! You doing your thing as well. Congrats on American. Are they one of your top choices?

American
Thursday, November 12 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey - noticed you stated on another post that your status checker did not change from Application Completed at American, but then you get your acceptance packet in the mail. Curious, if the date on Application Completed changed though? My date changed from 11/19 to 12/15 today but stayed as Application Complete - Here is hoping I get a nice packet in the mail soon :)

see
Wednesday, November 18 2009 at 07:00 PM

I knew it would only be a matter of time! Now you have some options...soooo what is your number one choice?

Congrats
Tuesday, May 26 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey they your are cleaning up Best Wishes!

good question...
Wednesday, November 18 2009 at 07:00 PM

Right now Alabama is probably still my # 1 choice, but the full scholarship from Drexel is looking really nice...plus I haven't been rejected from my "kicks and chuckles" school yet soooo...I dunno

Clearly, I'm not the only one
Monday, March 09 2009 at 08:00 PM
