ALL SCHOLARSHIPS LISTED ARE PER YEAR
11/30/06: American acceptance mailed on 11/22/06. Came in a large Fed-ex package. Some have said they got a phone call... not me.
12/7/06: Online status check went to "Decision" for Georgetown. Im pretty sure most everybody's went to decision today. Most acceptances seem to have been sent out... it dosent look good.
12/17/06- Defered from Minnesota today. Not too much of a surpirse there but I am still hoping for some good news lin a few months. They say they will make a decision by May 31st. Even though my mail is being forwarded from Denver I am surprised that my Georgetown rejection has not officially come yet... maybe on Monday?
12/19/06- Rejection e-mail from GULC today. Apparently my letter was returned as "undeliverable" so thats why it took so long. Not too much of a shock...
1/3/06- Accepted to William Mitchell today with a Trustees Scholarship of 75% of tuition (including extras like books etc...) Im not sure if I would consider going there or not but the scholarship really does make you feel wanted.. and If i get dinged at MN it would be a chance to come home. Right now I would just really like to hear from GW.
1/5/07- IN AT WISCONSIN TODAY! The more and more I think about that the more and more I want to go to UW. It is a fantastic school for the Minneapolis Big Law market and I can go to class with views of lakes. I have never been there but everyone says the campus is beautiful The letter came in a standard white envelope that said there woudl be more information to come. Unless MN pans out I think im going to end up in Wisconsin... Im pretty OK with that.
1/6/07- Waitlisted at Notre Dame. Im actually pretty happy with that because I feel like there was a good chance I could have been rejected, I will stay on the WL but Im still really thinking Madison is the place for me!
1/9/07- In at Denver and U Conn. I didnt get any scholarship information from either one so I hope that means it is coming later... I am expecting at least something from DU.... Madison is still the number one choice right now.
1/17/07- Scholarship letter from DU today. Full tuition.... nice.
1/19/07- E-mail from MN today saying that most deferral decisions would not be made until April....bummer. I sent in a letter of continued interest around 12/15, and a second update on 1/15, it would be so amazing to get into MN.....
1/23/07- So I think everyone who applied to Pepperdine got an e-mail today either saying congrats on the acceptance or that the committee is still reviewing your file. I never got a letter officially accepting me to pepperdine, but my e-mail opened with, "Congratulations on your acceptance" so Im guessing ill get a letter in the mail tomorrow......
1/25/07- Deans scholarship from pepperdine today. $23,000 per year. Very flattering although pretty sure its not for me.
1/27/07- Withdrew from University of CT today. Under some circumstances I could see myself attending a lot of these schools, but I just dont see a situation where I would go to CT. Hopefully my spot goes to someone who really wants it (And good Karma will let someone withdraw from MN to give me a slot??)
1/29/07- Wait list from Vandy today. Thats pretty much what I expected. I also got a call from the Dean of University Wisconsin today, that was very flattering. He called to congratulate me on my acceptance, but so far still no $$$$
2/06/07- E-mail from University of Washington today congratulating me "again" on my acceptance.... what is with these schools sending e-mails before sending letters? Anyway, its very flattering, the best school i have gotten into thus far, but im still thinking Madison...
2/09/07- Packed from Washington arrived at my home address in Minnesota. It was pretty standards, no scholarships or anything, but that was to be expected.
2/21/07- Withdrew from Pepperdine today. I just have too many other offers from better schools, and I dont think I could handle being in CA for 3 years. Hopefully someone who really wants the spot will get it!!!!
2/27/07- MN sent an e-mail saying I am still on hold and don't expect to hear until May.... that sucks. I wonder if I shoudl have told them I needed a decision earlier?
3/6/07- Waitlist from GW today, no surprise there....
5/8/07- So thats it, Ive withdrawn everywhere that I got into but Wisconsin. Im really hoping for a yes on one of my waitlists or ESPECIALLY on Minnesota. If not Im OK with Madison and it will be a fine school. I did get an email from Notre Dame the other day that I dont think everyone on their WL got. It said they were starting to make some WL decisions and wanted updated contact info, so maybe thats a good sign?
5/29/07- Got the big WAITLIST from MN today, to be honest I expected it but it does not mean I am any less bummed. Its time to put up the big A next to wisconsin...sigh.....
7-18-07: I AM IN AT MINNESOTA!!! I was thrilled today to get a message on my voicemail from Julie Tiggs telling me that I was accepted. A packet is supposed to be coming in the mail shortly. The whole cycle worked out perfectly, even if it did take a staggering NINE MONTHS.
7-22-07: Rejection from GW today, which is just fine and expected since I never followed up with them or anything. Notre Dame sent another letter asking if I wanted to stay on the WL... why not but I dont think it would make me give up MINNESOTA! = )
