Additional info & updates

10/16/07 - Sent in Tulane, this my second time around the block so we will see what happens. Next applications go out when I get paid...pathetic really.

10/22/07 Sent in Houston. Have FSU, LSU, and UF ready to go. No printer at the house (long story), so I have to wait until I get to work tomorrow.

BTW Pretty unbelievable that Wake Forest requires you to look up traffic violations like speeding and explain them. Wanted this one out soon, but now its going to take time to gather that info...fun, fun.

Vandy sent me an email, I'm so (not) in.

10/23/07 UF, FSU, and LSU are out, leaving one more to go. Quite a prolific application completer I am.

10/24/07 Miami sent out. Switched with Wake Forest. Chances are better and more realistic that I would actually go there if accepted if my applications play out the way I think they would.

Tulane Application is Complete. The wait begins.

11/1/07 Sent in Northeastern as a late addition to my list, why not?

11/06/07 Well, that was quick. Accepted at Miami, someone is having a good time tonight.

11/09/07 Thin envelope from FSU scared the crap out of me, then I noticed the metallic seal (last year's rejection letter didn't have one) and I am glad to say I was admitted. These letters coming in this close to each other might destroy my liver.

11/10/07 Oh, NOW the thick envelope arrives, thanks Florida State.

11/16/07 GMAT tomorrow, yay! Will be back by the time LSU plays. FSU financial aid info came in mail. UPDATE: I hate the math section, it can die a fiery death.

11/26/07 LSU acceptance letter in thick regular envelope. No surprise here since they admitted me last year with lower numbers. No scholarship info included.

11/28/07 Emailed UF for application status since I hadn't received an update since they received it. Emailed back that I was under review, so a decision letter should come soon.

12/7/07 Called Miami about scholarships. Website message board said to do so if you hadn't received a letter yet. I was not selected and am pretty surprised by that. Disappointing. Guess that first LSAT anomaly really hurt me.

12/10/07 Oh snap, Tulane application just went to committee. Houston updated, in review there as well. That means 3 files in review at same time. This will make or break Christmas.

12/11/07 Got that money, money, money MONEY! From LSU.

12/22/07 Hadn't checked my email in a couple days due to flying home. Find the anticlimatic but ever exciting acceptance to Tulane! Subject read: "Your acceptance to Tulane Law School" Haha.

1/14/08 OK, come on guys, put the letters in the envelopes and put them on their merry way. I'm thisclose to not caring. That winter break was great, but sucked my law school acceptance mojo out of me.

1/17/08 Deferred at Northeastern. Surprised, but not sure if I care. Decision by April on the letter. I'm more worried about my face freezing off than this letter right now.

2/2/08 Groundhog Day! In at H-Town. I wonder if this day is going to repeat itself over and over and over until I make the right decision?

2/21/08 Nothing new to report. Just wanted to mention that I swear Tulane sends me something twice a week lately. Postcards, little emails, etc. While I do feel all warm and fuzzy inside, what would make me feel really good and hop into my birthday suit would be some dollar signs. Is that too much to ask? I swear I have a great body, I promise.

3/25/08 Tulane sent me an email giving me $3,500 a year, which is the most they told me was possible if you got passed up for the initial scholarship offer, so I can't be too upset about that. UF is still screwing around.

3/27/08 UF REJECTED, whatever, I hate Tim Tebow anyways. haha

4/4/08 Northeastern Waitlisted me, who do these guys think they are, Harvard? haha

Hey, I'm a 1L at LSU, awesome school, it's a great price and I think I'm getting an excellent education.

I hear ya on that thin leter!! I am in Afghanistan right now but my mom called and said she got a thin letter from FSU, but the first word was CONGRATULATIONS! Congrats, maybe I'll see you there!

Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

that is if I get rejected from my first choices - very likely

Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

I appreciate your support and well wishes! Good luck to you on the rest of your apps and I will DEFINITELY be home by then - looking at about mid-april! Keep me up to speed on your progress!

Thursday, February 01 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on FSU! This is my second time around as well, similar lsats for both. You give me hope! Good luck w/Tulane, I've applied there as well. I actually visited the campus this weekend, very nice. Beautiful to be exact. It is literally right next door to Loyola as well, which is weird. (From the law school, you can see the loyola parking deck across the street)

Monday, May 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Seems like we have a similar story; congrats on the acceptances so far

Thursday, February 01 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hope the gmat went well. I'll keep you in mind if I get in at Tulane. I'm sure I'll have questions.

Ocean Springs?
Tuesday, November 06 2007 at 07:00 PM

You're from Ocean Springs? I used to live in Pascagoula lol

Monday, June 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

Did you find out that your file went to committee via email? Thanks

Friday, October 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Tulane buddy! They are in my top 3 and with an acceptance this early it's gonna be hard to turn them down. Let me know what you are thinking about them and which weekend you are visiting. Hope to see ya there!

Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

I'm creeping up to your bottom position in the TOP 50 users...you'd better get on your game and post some attractive stuff....hahaha!

Monday, June 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

i somehow missed your acceptance to tulane in late dec. congratulations! i just got accepted too :)

Monday, June 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Tulane, your #1. That's fantatic! Just got my acceptance as well, so maybe I'll see you in the fall.

Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

...on your acceptance to U of Houston!!!! Do you know where you will most likely attend next year?! You have had a pretty damn good cycle thus far! One more to go and UF is apparently being VERY slow this year!!! Whats up with that?

Friday, October 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

Haha, I'm trying to get that thing buzzing but I'm not having much luck with it. You ever decide if or when you were heading down and how are your prospects looking now?

Sunday, January 13 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hey just browsing lsn. Congrats on FSU and Tulane. I'm waiting to hear back from both...What is your first choice? BTW I love that you have LSU tailgaiting and national champions on your EC. Go SEC!! :)

Tulane Scholarship
Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on getting some money. Did you email them to ask for a scholarship? If so what did they tell you when they originally responded or did they respond with the scholarship offer?

Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the reply. I have talked to a few people with numbers in our general range and everybody seems to have gotten a different reply from them. I was told that I was put on a short list of candidates who would receive a scholarship if more money becomes available and asked how much I would need to sway me towards Tulane over the other school I mentioned. After I replied I was told that they would get back to me or to let them know if I had any upcoming deadlines. I'm just trying to get a feeling for my chances at getting some sort of scholarship. Thanks for the reply and congrats on making your decision.
