2/8/11 - Sent in my applications last week. I really hope I'm not too late in the cycle...
2/18/11 - heard from L&C: reviewed app, but have not made a decision. So I could be waiting till late May or early April. Very happy to still be in the running.
3/24/11- McGeorge Status Checker date updated to 3/23/11. Decision soon...?
3/25/11 - Admitted at Willamette with a $12K scholarship! So those of you who are familiar with Willamette know that their decisions are by mail only; well I just got an email today from an alumni congratulating me on my admission. Was excited yet skeptical because I was expecting a letter. So I called the admissions office and was told that the letter was mailed on the 3/16, and that I was indeed in along with a $12k scholarship. I'll have to wait for the letter to get the $$$ details. So excited!
3/30/11 - I found out what happened to my letter from willamette - mailman put it in my neighbor's mailbox... woops! $12k scholarship is annual and is renewable as long as cumulative gpa remains at or above 2.90.
4/14/11 - Paid my first seat deposit at Willamette today (due date is 4/15). Although I'm waiting to make my final decision after I've heard back from L&C, Oregon, and McGeorge I don't want to lose my seat and scholarship that I have in hand.
4/22/11 - "Decision Rendered" via status checker at McGeorge. I guess I'll find out soon...
Rejected at U of Oregon via regular mail.
4/25/11 - Admitted to Lewis & Clark P/T via email!!! So so so freaking excited!
Withdrew my seat at Willamette and will also withdraw my application from McGeorge because I am will attend Lewis and Clark (my top choice)!
It's been a crazy ride but it was all worth it. Best of luck to all of you out there still on the waitlist to your top choice.
5/2/11 - Packet in mail today from McGeorge; accepted with $5,000 Barrister's scholarship (top 1/3 of class and renewable) Hand-written note from Dean of Admissions Adam Barrett made a reference to my personal statement. This was quite a nice touch, but I've already decided to attend Lewis and Clark. Will withdraw tomorrow.
