Additional info & updates

10/29 - Rejected from Gtown via email. A little disappointed but not surprised.

11/18 - Accepted at Penn State via email!

11/30 - Rejected from Cornell via email. Not surprised.

12/2 - Accepted at W&L!!! VERY VERY VERY EXCITED!! Accepted via status checker and email.

12/3 - Accepted at NEU! Received an email telling me a decision has been rendered and to check the status checker.

12/4 - Rejected from BC. via snail mail..kind of surprised it was an outright rejection and not at least a WL. Oh well.

12/10 - Accepted at Iowa!!!! via status checker. E-mail came a few hours later. Waiting for letter in the mail.

12/15 - After some deliberation decided to apply to Alabama. Low out of state tuition and cost of living major factors, plus they already sent me a fee waiver.

12/17 - Wait listed at UIUC via e-mail. Disappointed but relieved it wasn't an outright ding. Status checker says "hold for second review"

12/22 - Accepted to Maryland via snail mail!!! No mention of scholarship.

12/23 - Status change to 'decision made' on Alabama. Accepted via phone call with $22,500/year scholarship!!!! VERY EXCITED!

12/23 - ACCEPTED TO INDIANA!!! via USPS envelope, $120,000 scholarship!!!!

1/3 - Deferred to RD from GW. Relieved it wasn't an outright ding. Hoping the GPA boost from my fall grades will help.

1/5 - Received another envelope from Northeastern. Big envelope with magazine and congratulations letter.

1/6 - Received a handwritten postcard and copy of law journal from Alabama.

1/10 - Applied to Notre Dame. I would have liked to apply much earlier in the cycle but they only just sent me a fee waiver today.

1/12 - Received a fee waiver from UVA so I decided to take a chance and see what happens. I know it's a long shot, but it's worth the $12.

1/12 - Accepted to William & Mary!!!

1/14 - Received big envelope from W&M, $8,000/year scholarship.

1/18 - $20,000/year at Penn State.

1/20 - $10,000/year at W&L.

1/26 - I negotiated with W&L and they raised my scholarship to $20,000/year.

1/27 - Rejected from UVA. Not surprised or disappointed, really only applied because I got a fee waiver.

1/27 - Got a call from Hastings!!!! :):):)

1/28 - Rejected from GW by email. Pretty bummed.

2/1 - William & Mary increased my scholarship from 8 to 13k/year.

2/10 - In at American FINALLYYY via e-mail

2/15 - Decision letter mailed under status checker for UW.

2/18 - Waitlisted at boston but accepted to emory with $54k!!

2/28 - Accepted to UW over the phone :) :)

3/13 - FINALLY in review at WUSTL as of 3/11 and no word from ND.

At this point I can safely say that I will not be going to Northeastern , American or Penn State. Would be nice to get a scholarship decision from Hastings, UW, Iowa and Maryland so narrowing my list down will be easier, but April 1 is looming and I simply couldn't take on so much debt when I have $$ from W&L, W&M, Bama, Emory and IUB.

If you wanna learn more about negotiating scholarships, visit the forums at www.top-law-schools.com . Anything I know about this I learned there.

3/15 - Officially committed to Indiana. Very pleased with how things turned out and that there's an end in sight to this whole application/decision process.

Officially withdrew from NEU, Penn State and American.

3/24 - Withdrew from Maryland.

Crickets from WUSTL and ND...

3/27 - Withdrew from Hastings...bye bye SF dreams...

4/1 - Withdrew from W&M

4/3 - Withdrew from Emory

4/7 - Waitlisted and withdrew from ND

5/2 - Was withdrawn from W&L because I didn't pay the May 1 deposit. Riding out UIUC and BU.

5/10 - Accepted off the WL at UIUC via email

5/17 - Withdrew from UIUC - would have been nice to go but they couldn't match Indiana's $$$.

On W&L and Northeastern! How did you hear about Northeastern?

Congrats

Congrats on your acceptances thus far!! I am also surprized that you werent at least WL at BC... crazy. But... I was also wondering if your northeastern status checker ever went to 'in review'? Mine has said complete for awhile now.... I am clearly impatient.

Did your BC status go to "Decision Rendered" before you go the snail mail? Mine just went to that today, but without any email, and I'm scared that means a rejection... Congrats on NE though!

Congrats again!

on your acceptance to maryland! do you know if your status checker ever change from 'in review'? Thanks!! looks like you are having an awesome cycle!

thanks!

thanks for checking in! I alrady feel better about northeastern... I when I freak out, I really freak out, but then I rebound quickly. I am looking at a few more schools .... I just have no idea where else I would want to be... I put a lot of thought into each school I applied to, so it is hard to go back and research more schools! But thanks for the sympathy!! People who arent applying to law school just dont get it sometimes..

Hey, You mentioned that you negotiated with W&L to increase your scholarship. How did that go down? Did you leverage other acceptances/money to get them to budge? How receptive were they? I'm most likely heading there in the fall, but I want the best deal possible.\ Thanks, Chris

Thanks! Best of luck

Ok, many of us are curious; can you give us a little insight into how you negotiated the scholly increases? A private message would be ok, but I'm sure there are lots of folks here who are wondering the same thing. Thanks and congrats!
