9/9 Registered for the October LSAT
10/28 Took the LSAT with no preparation. I meant to study but just ran out of time. The day was terrible in that we started 3 hours late and there were problems with the tablet. They ended up sending half the people home and everyone was super frustrated.
11/20 Got my LSAT score back. I wasn't too happy with my score but not unhappy enough to take it a second time. I was hoping my LSAT would make up for my lower undergrad GPA
1/2 I changed my name after getting married. This was a nightmare with law applications because my LSAC report was still under one name but my social security information was under a different name. I couldn't change my name with LSAC before submitting my applications because the required documentation takes a few weeks to process and I did not want to miss scholarship deadlines. I strongly recommend waiting to change you name if this is something that also effects you.
1/6 submitted 7 applications
1/8 submitted 3 applications. U of Maine application marked as "in review".
1/21 submitted 1 last application to New England Boston because of an email I received with scholarship potential.
1/22 accepted into Widener via email. Offered $37,000 per year in scholarships plus housing. Vermont and Mizzou marked my application as "in review"
1/24 accepted into Tulane via email. Offered $35000 per year. Ole miss application marked as "decision rendered" but no email and have yet to receive a letter in the mail.
1/28 accepted into Mizzou via phone call and offered full tuition plus an out of state waiver. This is where I currently go to graduate school. I love it here and this is probably where I will go to law school.
1/29 I got an email and decided to apply to Golden Gate University because of their environmental law program.
1/30 finally got an email from Ole Miss. Accepted with full tuition. I also got a phone call from Maine but was unable to answer. They didn't leave a voicemail, but I got an acceptance via email. No mention of scholarship in the email.
1/31 I got an email acceptance from Vermont saying a packet will come in a few weeks detailing eligible scholarships. Pretty excited about this one because of their environmental program. Colorado application status changed to "application in review"
2/1 received packets in the mail from Tulane and Mizzou.
2/3 got packet in the mail from Maine offering $75000 ($25000 a year). Not as much as I would have liked but not bad. Definitely still a place Im considering.
2/4 got an acceptance email from New England Law Boston and a second email offering a full tuition scholarship
2/6 received packet in the mail from Ole Miss
2/7 received packet in the mail from New England Law
2/11 Vermont online status checker had updated information about scholarships. Its a decent scholarship but would still be $7000 per year. It is still one of my top choices though.
2/13 Oregon online status changed from application complete to in review so hopefully Ill hear back soon.
2/14 got an email that I was waitlisted at Colorado. I kind of expected it so Im not upset. My Oregon online application status changed to decision rendered and a couple of hours later I got an acceptance email offering $25k/year.
2/15 I got a wooden pen in the mail from New England Boston with my name engraved in it
2/18 got my packet in the mail from Vermont. Included some locally made chocolate that was delicious.
