Both LSN and Mylsn.info have been great resources leading up to this application process. My plan is to update here each phase of my application to hopefully help someone in a similar place in the future out. I'm a splitter so I'm applying pretty broadly.
09/05 -- Interview request at UVA. Typically this is a good sign. Some students have reported being admitted right after their interview, so fingers crossed!
09/09 -- In at UVA! Had a phone interview this morning and was accepted at the end of the call. This is why you apply early if you're a splitter.
10/24 In at UCLA! Notified via phone call from the dean of admissions. 310 area code.
10/29 In at Georgetown! Received a letter in the mail with a really nice personal message from Dean Cornblatt. This is a top choice for me, so really excited!
11/16 In at GWU with scholarship!
12/2 In at University of Washington! My decision was sent via email. Feels great to get into the best school in the PNW.
12/15 I got my fall quarter grades back, and my LSAC GPA is now 3.15. Any decisions made after today are based off of 3.15, not my original 3.05
12/19 In at Lewis and Clark via email.
12/20 Rejected at Penn. This is my first denial of the cycle, so it definitely stings a bit. Although it's not entirely surprising, I was hoping for at least a wait list. One thing to consider is that I did need to withdraw my ED contract to Penn earlier in the cycle, so I'm wondering how much of a difference that made.
12/22 Received scholarship offer from Lewis and Clark -- $87,000 total, which is something like 65% of tuition.
12/23 Decided to throw a hail mary to NYU since I got rejected at Penn so quickly. Would love to attend, but thinking if I were to be so lucky it would be after riding the waitlist for an extended amount of time. Oh well, here's to hoping.
1/6 First decision of the new year! Accepted to WUSTL via email this afternoon.
1/30 Waitlisted at Duke today after radio silence since mid-September. Pretty much what I expected when I applied. Going to ride it out and see if I can sneak in.
2/8 Waitlisted a Northwestern.
2/17 Waitlisted at Michigan.
2/27 Need-based scholarship at UCLA. Also qualify for residency tuition here.
2/28 In at Brooklyn Law with scholarship
4/7 After all this time spent waiting, I'm finding it hard to conceptualize that my cycle is actually finished. I've decided to attend UW this fall. Their scholarship offer of $45,000 combined with some savings was enough to make it worth it for me financially. As someone who plans on living in Seattle long-term, it just didn't make sense to me to leave the area if I didn't have to. I'm signing out from this profile for awhile, but I hope that it can be of some assistance to future applicants.
