Additional info & updates

June - I feel bad because MSU offered me full tuition even after I had withdrawn.

3/29 - $20K/year at Kent. Would be nice because it's lower than in-state tuition at U of I, but alas, I'm already committed! And Illinois is way better

3/23 - Rejected at Chicago. Who cares? I'm going to ILLINOIS!

3/5/07 - Accepted at Kent!

2/10/07 - Oddly, today I was rejected at DePaul.

1/24 - Today I was waitlisted at Loyola. Will withdraw
tomorrow.

1/19 - Today I decided to withdraw from MSU because I know I wouldn't turn down U of I to go there.

1/17 - LSDAS recalculated by GPA after recieving my fall grades and it's now a 3.29, but I'll leave 3.25 up there since that's what I applied with and all decisions before today reflect the 3.25.

1/13 - Got a letter from Wisconsin saying I am on the waitlist.

1/10 - I GOT ACCEPTED AT UIUC AT MY INTERVIEW!!

1/9 - Went complete at University of Chicago today. I have an interview at UIUC tomorrow!

1/8 - Checked my mail back at school today and was very dissapointed to see the rejection from Ohio State, but I was happy to see the acceptance at Indiana with the merit scholarship.

12/21 - My status on Ohio State's status checker went to "Decision" today

12/20 - Today I decided to apply to University of Chicago. Yeah, yeah, I know...

12/15 - Today my acceptance to MSU came in a small white envelope. No mention of $$.

12/13 - Today I got an email from Wisconsin saying my application is beginning to go through the committee and that I should expect a decision in 6 to 8 weeks.

12/12 - Today I was deferred at UIUC. What should I do now?

12/11 - Today I called UIUC about ED decisions, and they said they mailed them all out today. Oh wow, I really hope I get in!

12/01 - Today I called DePaul and they said my app was complete and is in the group currently being reviewed by the committee!

11/27 - Today I started getting worried about not being complete at all the schools yet. I called MSU who said my app was complete and is in the group currently being reviewed by the admissions committee. Hopefully I will hear from them soon! DePaul said my file was still being assembled and that I should call back to get a better assessment of my file status. Indiana said I have been complete since the 9th.

11/21 - Recieved an email saying my app is complete at Loyola and that I will recieve a decision by Feb. 15th!

11/15 - Finally recieved that email from U of I saying I'm complete, what a relief! Online status checker at Ohio State says my app is complete! Also, recieved an email from Wisconsin saying I am complete there too!

11/14 - Today I recieved an email from Kent notifying me that I am complete!

11/13 - Today I called U Illinois to see if I was complete, and I was! Apparently, I was supposed to have recieved an email about this on Friday but I didn't, which is worrisome. Hopefully I won't miss any more emails from them. I'm just happy that my app is complete there.

Date Recieved = date school requested an LSDAS report

I didn't do ED--just applied early enough to get a fast decision, I guess.

Deferral

How'd Illinois let you know?

Patience is a virtue
Friday, December 01 2006 at 07:00 PM

I wouldn't obsess over the deferral from UIUC. First, it is not a rejection, and you still might get in there. Second, you already have one acceptance, so everything you get from here on is gravy. Third, with your stats you should expect at least a few more offers - it is still early in the game. Best of luck.

Did you pick these schools becaude they have good programs in environmental law, or for some other reason? Regardless, which schools in the Great LAkes area do you think have the best programs?

Thanks...
Wednesday, August 30 2006 at 08:00 PM

my admission to Wisconsin is exciting, it was one of my reaches.

WOW
Tuesday, January 10 2006 at 07:00 PM

Rejected at Ohio State? That's insane...I can't believe it, but good luck on the rest of your cycle!

Ohio State
Tuesday, November 28 2006 at 07:00 PM

Are they averaging LSAT?? I sure hope not...

Sorry.
Tuesday, November 28 2006 at 07:00 PM

Well thank you for your input. I am very sorry to hear about OSU. Congrats on IU though! That is a great accomplishment! Good luck the rest of the way!

ON UIUC!! I know it's what you were counting on and you're IN! Tell them to hurry and send mine eh? ;)

I'm so happy for you about UIUC. (Told you not to count them out.) But I'm also glad that their deferral caused you to apply to Chicago. If you got in there, it would be quite an honor. Would you consider going there or are you set on Illinois, now that they have come to their senses?

UIUC!
Wednesday, August 30 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats, Its your first choice!!!

WL at UW?
Wednesday, December 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

That's a surprise...

Friday, December 01 2006 at 07:00 PM

Sorry to see you got waitlisted at UW. But it probably doesn't matter since you planned on IL anyway. Good luck with Chicago.

on your acceptance to U of Illinois. It is such a good school!

Congrats!
Friday, December 30 2005 at 07:00 PM

(This is Matokah from TLS) Just wanted to say congrats on UIUC! Loyola waitlist? I can understand with me, but that's bizarre of them for you. Their loss. :)

what the hell is with Loyola?
Wednesday, December 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

Did we all leave a hair in their soup or something? Several people with my same numbers got in. What gives? Strange. Congratulations on UIUC though, that is one hell of a school...

UIUC
Wednesday, July 12 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey bopbop. Just found out I was waitlisted at U of I this morning via email. What did you do to turn your decision around? Further, how did you get an interview did they invite you in for one? Anything would be helpful thanks!!

I suspect you're right
Wednesday, December 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

But I didn't specify what I wanted to specialize in, AND I got money from Kent, which is more highly thought of and from DePaul. Go figure. So I assume you're just going to go to UIUC? Or are there others on your dancecard too?

thanks!
Friday, March 10 2006 at 07:00 PM

Are you considering IU at all?

Thanks
Wednesday, July 12 2006 at 08:00 PM

For the additional info. Well guess since you're local that helped out in terms of being able to put in additional face time. Just sent off my cont'd interest letter so we'll see what happens.

thanks...
Wednesday, January 24 2007 at 07:00 PM

and congrats - looks like you're in great shape. Yep, I like your advice re specialty reps vs. general strength. Kent does have a great env program - also have that dual degree in env management. I've had them way up on my list from the beginning. Not sure if they're the best fit for me personality-wise, they seem pretty utilitarian / cut-and-dried. I'm sold on the fact that they are the most up-and-coming Chicago school though. Best of luck to you .

Woot Indiana!

No?
Friday, December 01 2006 at 07:00 PM

Loyola and DePaul are unexpected ego blows. Perhaps they are feeling a bit outclassed at this point. Their loss. Thanks for the good wishes. (It was difficult having all my eggs in one basket.) So nice to have a home now! Good luck with Chicago.

Monday, April 24 2006 at 08:00 PM

I see that you were accepted at U of after being deferred. I need some advice. Do I call? Do I write? I did my undergrad there and now my husband and I live in Champaign. I would give anything to go there and I think I have the credintials - I am involved in a lot throughout the area and have worked full-time for 2 years since graduating. Anyways, sorry for the resume :) just want to see what you recommend. Any advice on here or email would be great. thanks and congrats.

Thanks
Monday, April 24 2006 at 08:00 PM

for the advice...I wrote Dean Shafer (the prelaw guy) to see what he says. I will probably end up calling but don't want to make a rash decision. Congrats again and hopefully see ya next fall! :) :)

Sunday, January 28 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hi, I saw you had an interview with UIUC. I'm having one on Monday and I was curious to know what you talked about in your interview, questions you were asked, or if you have any tips. Thanks for your help and congratulations on your acceptance!

aw, thanks
Friday, September 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

and congrats to you too on illinois! you must be really excited, way to go :)

nicely done
Friday, December 01 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Kent. If you like the city, it's a good choice. They seem rather 'cutting edge.' Still no word from U of Chicago, though?

Heh
Wednesday, July 12 2006 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, who woulda thunk? Especially after my rejections and UIUC deferral. But you'll be great... And if there's ever an oil spill in the midwest, I positive you'll do Illinois proud!! :)

Congrats Hey, it looks like we are going to be classmates for 1L. UIUC Class of 2010!! So you did your UG there too? If you feel like providing me some feedback about all the little details (where to get a good quiet apartment, etc...) stop by my LSN page and drop me a comment with your email. I went to an admitted students day on March 9th, and I am sure I will be attending UIUC... just time to work out the details now!
