04.12.08- My cycle is pretty much over!! Got the reject letter from Wisconsin. Not too sad because I knew that wasn't going to happen. Decided on WM, even though it was hard b/c it moved down in the rankings. Yet, it still has a fabulous rep in the Twin Cities, which is where I would like to end up. Good luck to everyone on the rest of your cycles!!!
03.22.08- Waitlisted at Marquette via small snail mail. No disappointment because I never would have gone there over a couple of other schools I've gotten into. Just happy to be narrowing things down! Cycle is almost over!
03.19.08- Dinged at Iowa via status checker- knew that one was coming! Still sad though. On the bright side, I withdrew from a couple schools yesterday, and it felt GOOD!
03.16.08- Dear God! Back from spring break and all I have is a mailbox full of crap from schools I've been admitted to. I thought for SURE I'd hear something by now... C'mon Wisconsin and Iowa, just break the bad news already so I can move on (though take your sweet time if I'll be admitted!)
03.07.08- Received notice of waitlist from Kansas- withdrawing when I get back from Spring Break. At least being in Mexico for a week will pull me away from my mailbox (though not my e-mail, thank god for BlackBerrys).
02.27.08- Dinged from U of M- duh! Figured it out by the status checker ("Decision Letter Sent") plus lack of phone call. Sucks, but I was expecting it.
02.25.08- E-mail from St. Thomas this morning with info on how to log on to their Admitted Student web page. Called to confirm; I'm in. Official letter should come in a day or two... wonder if I'll get any money? So far I've heard from 5/11 schools I've applied to; I'm happy with where I'm at so far, but I just want to know!
02.15.08- Received snail mail packet from John Marshall- in but no scholarship.
02.14.08- Happy Valentine's Day! Call from Hamline- in with 60% scholarship over 3 years if I keep a GPA of 2.9 or higher... nice.
02.07.08- Received thin snail mail envelope from DePaul- Rejection. That's alright, I can't afford to go to school in Chi anyways.
01.14.08- First acceptance- I'm officially going to law school! Heard from WM (via large snail mail packet) after one week of applying; must be a record as I'm about 4 states away. Scholarship offer of 45% tuition over 3 years if I remain in the top half of my class... exciting.
