Extra Curricular Information

An ode to UNC:

I wanted to mail in my seat deposit to UT the NEXT DAY but my business sense got me to wait till for UNC, the last straggler. After waiting two weeks I hadn't heard anything and I just felt it was unreasonable for UNC not to tell me. So I mailed in my seat deposit fee to Tennessee.

After another two weeks I actually called UNC to see what the deal was. This was two days before the UNC Seat Deposit due date and still no answer. No answer was forthcoming for me either. Not accepted, rejected or waitlisted.

Just nothingness.

The Admissions director was also quite dickish in her delivery of the news of my continued nothingness.

Finally, on May 6th I received a letter from UNC telling me that because of "keen competition" (I swear to god) I could not attend their law school.

They charged me the highest application fee of any school and the best they could come up with on May 1st, preposterously late, is Keen? After Tennessee admitted me I had made my choice. Good thing, because the loserdom of UNC is especially Keen.

All I can say:

It's GREAT To Be A Tennessee Volunteer

Additional info & updates

My Top Choice Brings Redemption in 2008

3/13/08: A phone call from the lovely admissions staff of the University of Tennessee. I'm in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3-18-08: I just got my rejection letter from UT last year and my acceptance letter from UT this year framed.

3-24-08: Financial news came in from Tennessee. I won't need to eat Alpo to survive law school. Even my dad is impressed with this place.

3-25-08: I have withdrawn my applications to Penn State and Arkansas. Hopefully this bodes well for those of you on the waitlist.

3-31-08: Mailed in my Seat Deposit for Tennessee.

5-1-08: Visited the campus and met with Janet Hatcher. Love the place and the people. All are top notch. Also gave in my second seat deposit fee.

5-23: Went to Admitted Students Day. Place and People are still awesome.

6-12: Have a great apartment and two roommates who seem cool. It's good to be me.

I've waited for years, patiently, to say this:

It's GREAT To Be A Tennessee Volunteer

It is tough going through it twice, but if you have put in the work it will be well worth it. I'm sure it will all work out for you.

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thanks. I hate that excruciating wait between the LSAT and the test results. Good luck with your decision when it comes.

Wednesday, August 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

for the kind words. Good luck with your LSAT retake score - I'm sure it made all the difference for me.

Saturday, June 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

I wish you the very best with your cycle as well.

Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

Good luck with your Dec LSAT score, hopefully you did great!

Thursday, May 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

on arkansas. My wife is from those parts and I love it down there.

Good luck
Thursday, October 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the kind words. Good luck on getting that LSAT score up--I hated the wait. Have you thought about applying to UGA if your LSAT ends up where you want it? They're ranked equal with UNC, and Athens is a great city.

Wednesday, November 29 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Penn State & Arkansas! And as far as fee waivers, i'm sure you can expect at least a few as long as your settings allow for contact on LSAC. Either way it sounds like your cycle's off to a nice start.

Sunday, December 02 2007 at 07:00 PM

for the congrats and best of luck with your cycle! i'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

good luck
Thursday, June 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

with UNC. i've been a fan of that school for as long as i can remember and was waitlisted for undergrad so i'm hoping this time around goes better... and it's nice to see i'm not the only one taking sports into consideration for where to go :)

Wednesday, November 14 2007 at 07:00 PM

thanks, that made me feel better.

Thursday, June 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

i'm planning on applying to uva, i'm just saving it for last and i'm quite the procrastinator. i better get on that this weekend. keep me updated on your progress with UNC - i'm wishing the best for both of us!

Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hopefully I won't have to take you up on that offer! :) Congrats on Arkansas and good luck on all the other schools!

Wednesday, October 31 2007 at 08:00 PM

I appreciate the congrats. I have been very lucky this cycle already, doing much better this cycle than last one. You and I are in a similar boat. I see you're having trouble with your number one choice(s). Don't fret it until you get all of your decisions back. You aren't the first person to feel this way. I know just how you feel. !

Tuesday, November 13 2007 at 07:00 PM

I haven't decided about UNC. I'm not sick of it, but with the scholarship at W&M, it makes it about the same cost as UNC. I've had a couple courses at UNC's law school (electives, not typical 1L classes) and wasn't overcome by the facilities. I'm still considering it though, but think I may have better opportunities elsewhere. I also heard UNC wasn't making another round of decisions til January, so I figure I have time. What do you think? Should I be tired of it? Haha!

Thursday, December 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

Glad to hear you liked the visit. Drop me an e-mail and let me know any questions you have (how I like the school, career prospects, classes, etc..) and I'll be happy to hit you up.

Sunday, July 22 2007 at 08:00 PM

I'm sure you'll be hearing from TN soon. :)

No sweat
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

No sweat on that! I left my T1 schools in the mix b/c scholarship offers may sway my decision. I just took myself out of ones that I am sure that I wouldn't attend now. I hope this helps you with Tennessee! Penn State and Arkansas are great ones so you are already sitting pretty! I wish you the best with the rest of your cycle and keep me posted! Maybe I'll see you as a 1L next year - who knows?!

Friday, February 08 2008 at 07:00 PM

Looks like we have fairly similar me hope! BTW, where did you get the numbers for your vegas odds?

Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Penn State and good luck on the rest!

Tuesday, March 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

I think so. Dragging my feet with the deposit out of sure laziness. When did you get FiAid info... I've heard nothing and am wondering if they got my FAFSA.

Thursday, July 05 2007 at 08:00 PM

Awww thank you, looking forward to meeting you too!

Friday, April 27 2007 at 08:00 PM

I was wondering if u had any advice on getting in to UT? If you do and care to share them feel free to send me an email. thank you
