ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

I probably won't end up going to LC or Willamette unless I get great money.

10/4/2007 Taking the LSAT (aka that HORRIBLE test) one more time in December. Hopefully throwing myself into incredible debt for a zillion dollar LSAT class will get me past the 160 mark.

12/20: Hit that 160 (1300 dollars for one point...) Now it's on to finishing the applications and having them in by January 1.

1/23: So much for Jan. 1st. Everything is in. Now it's the waiting game.

2/6: I need a distraction. I'm checking the mailbox everyday and it's only been two weeks!

2/8: small white envelope from UK. TERRIFIED me. Turns out that I missed a question on my application: "have you ever applied to the University of Kentucky?" They couldn't have called me about that one?!

2/19: Got word today that UConn hasn't gotten my college certification. I HATE MY UG'S REGISTRAR. Thanks to their delays, the small chance that I had at uconn just got even smaller.

2/25: Why do people post fake lsat scores/gpa on this site? + emailed Willamette today becuase I haven't gotten any type of "your application is complete" email/letter/call/etc. I'm not spending the money to pay for another lsac report if it got lost in the mail.

2/29: I can't help but suspect that the mailman is stealing my letters
Later that day: okay, maybe the mailman isn't secretly destroying my future. Got in at Willamette!!!!!!!!! 20,000 a year scholarship. That first acceptance is sooo sweet.

3/1: Big white envelope = in at UK. Yay for choices

3/5: 90% sure that I'll be at UK or UConn (if i get in) come fall. LC is too expensive and Willamette isn't for me. But we'll see....

3/13: This website is like crack. I'm addicted.

Seriously though, I can only afford to visit one school meaningggggg that uconn needs to get back to me asap so I can make travel plans to visit either there or uk.

3/14: Something just occured to me: I submitted my FAFSA after Willamette and UK had made their decisions. Long story short: the financial aid department and I will be best friends. Maybe that why the other schools are taking their time and have made decisions on applications submitted AFTER mine. I'm still biting my nails - they look horrible. I need a manicure. and some hightlights.

Deferred at LC.
The letter said that they'll look at my application again if any seats open up. If no seats open and I still want to be considered (and they don't reject my ass) then they'll put me on a wait list. I wanted to immediately pull my application...I don't handle rejection well...then i got the "don't close any doors" lecture.

I still hate them. not really.

3/19 - Non-Resident scholarship from UK. 3,000/yr. But it's 10,000/yr cheaper if I'm a resident...those numbers don't add up. They've been so friendly and easy to deal with that UK is quickly jumping to my first choice.

3/22 - Rejected at UConn. Not terribly surprised - it was taking them a long time to get back to me. Given how hard they've been to deal with I'm not heartbroken either.

3/26 - Email from Drusilla (we're basically on a first name basis now) upping my scholarship to completely make up for non-resident tuition. Still going to visit Willamette, but I don't think I can turn this down.

4/2 - Visiting Willamette on the 12th, but I'm sending a check to UK 1. because I'll probably go there and 2. I don't want it to be late.

4/16 - I went to the beach on Friday night and anyone who was in Portland on Saturday knows how uncharacteristically nice it was. So instead of visiting Willamette I stayed at the beach.
When I got my acceptance letter they didn't give me the "yes, I accept or no, leave me alone" form so I sent them an email today. I'm sure they figured it out yesterday when they didn't get a check from me.

4/25: One of the few reasons I'd stay in Portland would be to stay with my trainer (for horsey riding.) I freakin' adore her - but Lewis and Clark would have to 1. let me in, and 2. give me money. Unlikely. I like her, but I like saving 50,000 dollars more.

Cinco de Mayo: I want to learn Spanish.
and French.
I work at a community college and get to take any class for 5 bucks. Cheapest way to learn a language, no?

Actually, I'd like to apply for the Fulbright MBA program in Spain post-law school. I've never been there, but I think I'd like it. That frame of mind seems to be a trend these days.

I guess some econ classes might help too.

Dear Lewis and Clark: please make a decision. I need to know...even if it is just a rejection letter.

scratch that: please accept me.

5/6: Lewis and Clark listened. They accepted me via email. I applied to their evening program as a first choice. This would mean keeping my job...which is good. Still more than UK...which is bad. Now I don't know what to do.

5/7: Keeping my job won. I withdrew from UK today. Kinda sad...I was getting really excited about moving.

You'll break 160 for sure! From my view in the Midwest, P-town is where it's at.

I'm almost positive I'll be at UK in the fall too! I can't wait to get there - I've never visited but it looks amazing! Just out of curiousity, did you ask for your initial scholarship or was it awarded automatically? My numbers probably preclude me from one, but I was thinking of asking for a little just to help make up the non resident difference. Thanks and I can't wait to meet in the fall! :)

  • I just sent you

an email - I figured it was better than messaging like this!

I'm glad to see someone else on LSN that has committed to UK. I was beginning to think that I would be the only one in my entering class that obsessed over websites like this. Anyway, I live in Lexington and went to UK for undergrad, so feel free to email if you have any questions about the city. I know it can be scary moving to a new place where you don't know anybody. But, exciting also... I'm a little jealous.

I sent it again tonight... but I think I sent it to the same address... Check your spam and if you don't get it this time then just shoot me an email if you like and I'll reply back to it! As to visiting, I talked about it in the email a bit but I am going up the first week in June to find a place (I can't decide to buy a condo/rent an apt) and then hope to move the first week in July. If I can do anything for you while I'm there (check out a place, take pics, etc.) I'm more than happy to! Glad you had fun at the beach!

Hey, congratulations on UK. I'm probably going to UK too. Maybe we'll see each other there. I've never been there, but I think Kentucky looks awesome. Check out this web site. It has tons of info on Lexington: <a href="http://www.city-data.com/city/Lexington-Fayette-Kentucky.html" title="http://www.city-data.com/city/Lexington-Fayette-Kentucky.html" class="data">http://www.city-data.com/city/Lexington-Fayette-Kentucky.html</a>
