Additional info & updates

I know a lot of these schools are "reaches". But if, in the past, I had listened to those who told me something was impossible, I would not be where I am today.

Good luck to everyone - here's to a great cycle!

WL at Loyola. I will definitely be staying on - I would love to go here! I'm thinking about taking the June LSAT to try and improve my score, maybe it would help me get off the WLs I'm on?

Accepted at Baylor...kind of. Denied admission to the Fall class, offered admission to the Spring 09 class.

Before committee at IU - hoping for the best! I feel like this whole process is taking a very long time. Everyone keeps asking me where I am going and I feel kind of embarrassed telling them I have no idea yet. I do think I'm not alone, though - it looks like schools are taking longer to make decisions for borderline candidates this year...

WL at Pepperdine. Man, this lsat score is really killing me, huh? I will definitely be staying on Pepperdine's WL, though! I really love the school, it's gorgeous and has a program that I am very interested in. The letter said they won't be reconsidering anyone on the WL until mid-June, though...

Rejected at Texas, thin white envelope with a short and to-the-point letter. Ouch - this one stings, it's where I went to undergrad. It would be nice to receive an acceptance letter some time soon! At this point it seems likely I'll be headed out Los Angeles in the fall.

Deferred to regular admission at SMU. Regular white envelope.

Received the official thanks but no thanks from Vanderbilt. Came in a tellingly thin white envelope.

Complete at UCLA (email) and Pepperdine (email). I am now officially complete at all schools. Let the waiting begin!

Complete at SMU (email), USC (email), and Loyola (snail mail letter).

Complete at Texas (email), Vanderbilt (email), and Indiana (postcard).

Complete at Baylor (email) - my first "complete"! Application received at Indiana.

Sent in my Pepperdine application! The mission statement took me awhile but I was finally happy with it a few days ago and sent everything in. Apps received at Baylor, Loyola, Pepperdine, and USC. I called about my missing document at Indiana, they were very nice about it. Still have not sent in an application to Miami. I'm going to do a bit more research about Miami/Florida and call up a few friends who live in that area. I just want to make sure it is a school I would actually attend before I apply.

"We've received your application" email from Texas. Finished my application for Baylor and sent it in. While on LSAC, I noticed that Loyola and Southern California have also requested my LSAC report. Yay! I also noticed that I FORGOT to attach a document to Indiana!! I will have to call them tomorrow morning...

"We've received your application" emails from Vanderbilt and SMU.

Sent most of my applications in. Still missing Pepperdine, Baylor, and Miami. Debating about applying to Miami, though. It's the only school in Florida I'm considering, and I'm still considering if I would move to Florida!

may your application season be bright.

Thanks. To be honest I was pretty surprised. I'm out of the country but my roommate opened the mail so i'm hoping he isn't screwing with me. Good luck on Loyola and the rest of your schools. Feel free to email...

Thanks for the kind words. Baylor certainly was a good Christmas present! Did you apply for the summer or fall quarter there? Don't let anybody tell you that you're not good enough to do something. I was too conservative in applying to my undergraduate school and I regret that thoroughly.

I'm really excited to see what happens with them. I am complete there...I have been since November but I forgot to put it up here.

good luck...

on your applications. i'm also anxiously awaiting to hear back from mine. i'm sure you'll get into a lot of your schools. =)

Loyola notified me by mail with a similar packet as Chapman. They need to change the ton cartridge on their printer (my letter was fading). When I check the mail I watch for large packages. I haven't been rejected anywhere yet, but I figure you only get a letter instead of the larger folder. Good Luck! Pepperdine just started reviewing apps, so expect to hear from them later in the month!

Good luck

Just wanted to say good luck this cycle! You're on my watch list since we share numbers/schools. I also reached for Vandy and UT this year... not holding my breath, but would be awesome!

UT- ding

Hope you have better luck with UT than I did. :-(
