Additional info & updates

First In Family to Graduate From college.

11/15: In at Pittsburgh, 14k a year in Scholarships

12/1-Admitted to Stetson via Email.

Admitted to Miami via MyUm Account
In at University of Richmond via phone call

12/9-Admitted to Northeastern via Status Checker

1/6-Admitted to Chicago-Kent via status checker

1/8-I am expecting the ball to really get rolling starting tomorrow(1/9) in relation the higher ranked schools that I applied too. To be truthful, I am not feeling all that hot about my cycle so far, I have found the scholarship offers from Miami and Northeastern to be very underwhelming. I am hoping that things pick up.

1/19-20k a year from Chicago-Kent is underwhelming. I would be forced to borrow around 45k a year which is out of the question considering Kent's poor job placement statistics. Also accepted into Wake Forest.

1/20-MSU sent me a "Why MSU" essay request, I sent them a withdrawal notification.

1/21-I am starting wonder if Wake forest is such a strong choice. It has a decent rank, but its in a state with two powerhouse law schools, UNC Chapel hill and Duke. I am certain that both of those schools crush wake forest grads.

1/23-Admitted to Loyola Chicago via email.

1/30- Admitted to Iowa on Friday 1-28, I am really thrilled, Iowa is now my top choice. I am really hoping for a generous scholarship offer.

2/17 I got WLed by UIUC, UW and IUB. I sent in LOCI for the first two, I am not sure if I will for IUB.

2/19 My cycle ain't over yet! I still believe things will turn out right. I have my faith in god.

2/27 Withdrew from OSU. I have been under review for far too long. Even if I were to be admitted, I know that I could never afford to go there.

4/13- Quite a lot has happened since my last update. As you can see. I have withdrawn from most of the schools on my list. Frankly, most of their offers were wildly unserious in terms of scholarship money. I had to borrow to attend undergrad, so I am very debt averse. I think the days of old when one could intelligently borrow 100k to attend a sub T-14 school are over, there are far too many law schools, cranking out far too many lawyers into an economy that has far too few jobs. When I first started I only cared about rank and prestige, but rank and prestige often lead to high prices. So alas, I am staying in state. FSU admitted me a few weeks back and offered me a good scholarship, combined with my instate status, I am looking at borrowing only to cover my living expenses. So I think FSU is where I will be.

More to come....

Which is your top school of choice if you had your dream? Lots of Midwest schools there. Is that where you're from?

Thanks!

No idea. They've offered that little to a lot of people with similar numbers so far though. I don't think there's anything wrong with me or my apps specifically lol.

Monday, June 27 2011 at 08:00 PM

Lol be careful, I'm from Indiana. And I have no idea what they're trying to do. My best guess is that they really just used all of the money last year...and maybe they're expecting a jump in the rankings that will draw people there despite the decreased money.

Impressive Cycle.

I am happy for the acceptance, but would like a lot more money and I wish they wouldn't have taken so long to announce.
