Born, raised and educated in San Diego till 12th grade.
MSU for undergrad; wanted to see snow! ;)
Santa Clara: 12/30 "We'll get back to ya!"
Cal Western: 1/7- Acceptance came in 2 (?) letter sized envelopes. 1/20- I got a call from the Dean of Admissions congratualating me.
2/7- I am so sick of waiting for these damn decisions! Hell, I think I may just go to Cal Western because they had the decency of letting me know at least a month before anywhere else. Though, barring the miniscule chance of a full ride somewhere else, I have pretty much made up my mind to go there regardless. I need 300+ days of sun for my Midwest hangover
2/25- Going to Cal Western. There is no excuse to have not received back decisions from law schools. You pay $50 for the app and ask for the opportunity to spend $30,000+ a year and they blow you off. I am choosing Cal Western not only because I like the school, but because I appreciate the respect and professionalism they have shown.
3/2- I was tired of waitng, so I decided to just call TJ. She told me without problem and said scholorshop info would be sent out as well. Still going to CWSL!
3/17- I received my Financial Aid Packet and noticed the PLUS loan instead of the expected private loan. Doing some research I found it came with a REQUIRED 3% fee and a fixed 8.5% rate. Anyone else think this isn't that great of a deal? If you factor in the 3% fee, it's like 9%/year and that, at this point in time, isn't great. If the fed is only suppose to raise irates another couple times, I don't see this as worth it. Anyone else have any perspective?
3/30- Oh look... an acceptance from Pacific... Too bad I didn't get your answer a month and a half ago!
5/1- So, funny thing: I got my Santa Clara decision today. At least, I think it was the decision. I don't actually know because I tossed it into the garbage, unopened, the moment I saw it. It was rather gratifying to be so bold as to symbolically say, "Fuck off." That is effectively what SC has communicated by taking 7 8 months to get back to me. Is this really how any responsible school would deal with a potential student? So in the end, I say back: screw you too! :-P
As for the decision... I hope to never know!
