11-5-2010- first response from Alabama and I'm so excited! they contacted by phone and offered to help pay for my flight and hotel for when i visit.

11-11-2010- email from University of Texas. deferred to the regular decision period so it looks like I have awhile until I hear anything.

11-19-2010- Status checker at WM says I'm in! I went there for undergrad and am a huge fan of the school.

11-20-2010- Received my admit packet at WM. I'm an in-state resident so the scholarship opportunity is incredible!

12-1-2010- In at U. of Iowa via email. More info to come by snail mail.

12-2-2010- In at Washington and Lee via status checker and follow up email. They sent an email out an hour before saying a decision was coming out soon so it was a little nerve wracking. Also, scholarship info won't be decided until mid January.. With my deal at WM that will be a huge part of my decision so I'm anxious to see! Note- I wrote the optional essay on an ethical dilemma.

12-6-2010- In at GMU via phone call. Letter with more information should be in the mail.

12-7-2010- Letter from GMU states that scholarship decisions won't come out until late February. Without financial help, it would be hard to pick GMU over WM or Alabama.

12-14-2010- in at UGA via status checker!

12-17-2010- WL at Illinois via email. I only would have attended w/$$ which I clearly won't get even if I was accepted later on so I am withdrawing. Oh well!

12-21-2010- Signed up for a group interview at Gtown. Has anyone heard of/been to one of these??

12-28-2010- Deferred to regular decision at GW via email. No surprise there!

12-29-2010- Tuition reduction scholarship via snail mail at UGA giving me in-state tuition for my second semester.

1-19-2011- WL at Wisconsin via email. I received an email asking us to fill in scholarship information last month, and essentially wrote that I would only attend if I got significant scholarship due to my interest in public interest or government law. This was probably stupid on my part, but I really love W&M and couldn't justify attending without close to a full ride so I have no regrets!!

1-19-2011- 40k/yr at Cardozo via snail mail, awesome!

1-21-2011- WL at UVA via email. No surprise but it does make me wish a little I had done ED. Also accepted at Colorado via snail mail.

1-24-2011- WL at Minnesota via email. Seems to be my current trend!

1-28-2011- First ding at GW via email. A little surprised but not too upset- with my W&M offer I don't think I'd want to pay full price for a school unless I got into a T14 and I never thought I had a chance at much $$ from GW.

1-31-2011- WL at Vanderbilt via snail mail. January is not my month!

2-4-2011- Dinged at Georgetown via email. After GW I was definitely expecting this.

2-16-2011- WL at UT via email. Maybe February isn't my month either :P Looks like it's going to come down to W&M, W&L or GMU unless a miracle waitlist comes through or Emory.

2-19-2011- In at Emory w/54k cumulative via snail mail. SO happy!

2-24-2011- Scholarship offer from GMU via snail mail.

3-1-2011- Received a slight increase from W&M via email. It's between W&M and Emory now, unless I can get off the waitlist at UVA.

3-7-2011- Received scholarship info from Colorado via snail mail- $12,000/first year, $4,000 each subsequent year. Definitely glad I withdrew.

3-29-2011- Absolutely shocked I got into UT! Definitely pushes Emory out of the picture.

3-31-2011- Negotiated a tiny bit with GMU. I'd love to live in Arlington but I'm sure not that it'll be enough to sway me away from UT.

4-22-2011- Decision time for UT v. WM. So so torn...

6-19-2011- My bf was able to get a great job in Austin and I really loved the school when I visited so my decision has been made! Good luck to everyone else this cycle and in the future :)

Good luck with everything. Just wondering, how did you get a fee waiver from Minn?

Oops

My mistake - haven't been accepted to Emory yet. Just submitted app today and selected the wrong toggle!

Congrats!!

Hey congratulations for getting into UGA!! Check your mail you should receive and actual letter and as always go Dawgs!!

Thursday, May 13 2010 at 08:00 PM

Yea for numbers twin! I'm really liking Indiana, they're offering some great stuff, but I would love UGA to be honest

You have to be pretty tempted by your scholarship, at the very least that has to be worth a visit to NY, right? You're kicking ass by the way, nice work!

Congrats!

Congrats on your acceptances thus far! Do you have your top 3 schools sized up yet?

Saturday, February 28 2009 at 07:00 PM

hey! i thought i responded already (and i've actually looked at you before bc we're numbers twins!!) i've just been on such a high all day! i don't know, i'm out of state and sticker is a LOT. i didn't expect to get in, so i hadn't researched UT AT ALL. i'm still waiting on Vanderbilt also. but it's hard to turn down a school as good as Texas. what about you?

Thanks

I wish I would have gotten more $$$ from W&L or in at W&M as it was my top choice
