Not very impressive, yes I know. However, I did move 1000 miles from my home when I turned 18 to go to school. I paid for school myself and supported myself, I know that may not seem very impressive for some people, but it was an accomplishment for me.

Additional info & updates

Good Luck to everyone! I really really want to get into Notre Dame.. it is eating me alive! I hope everyone gets into the schools they are shooting for!

Bye bye dreams.. damn... eh.. maybe I'll wait a year if I don't get in.

The numbers to the left of my schools are my chances via Chiashu:

Super Reaches:
Notre Dame 7%.. oh yea I believe in miracles!
W&L 10%
U of Minn 14%

Targets:
U of Iowa 45%
IU Bloomington 47%
Loyola Chicago 51%

Safeties:
Depaul 71%
NIU 94%
MSU 96%

12-8: No word yet. Although, I am an official college graduate now!

12-19: Rejection.. Minnesota. It's ok though, I wasn't banking on it.

12/19: Deferred! Yay! Notre Dame saw something they liked!
I'm going to take the LSAT again, hopefully that will help. I'm so excited.

12/26: Got my first acceptance, Michigan State.. it's like a birthday and christmas present all in one! Yay! At least I know someone wants me!

1/9: It sure is quiet on the law app front, this makes me nervous!

1/12: Acceptance from NIU, no surprise there. At least I have options now. I'm not sure how much of an option that would be.

GO BEARS! GO BEARS!

1/23: Apparently, Indiana isn't going to let anyone that is a Bears fan in, they must be scared we are going to win. Haha.. so I got rejected from IU, that sucks. It is a real blow to the ego, that is one of the schools I was kinda counting on. That just sucks, makes me sad.

2/7: waitlisted at Loyola.. better than a rejection I guess

2/11: I took the LSAT again yesterday, I'm hoping it will help with ND and Loyola, we'll see. I didn't feel very good about it.

2/16: Got a scholarship from Michigan State.. Yay!!! It's about $20,000 a year.

3/2: I got my new score.. yay!! 163!! Much better. I also got a rejection letter from ND, it's cool apparently they didn't want to wait for my new score.. that's cool.

3/3: Forgot to add an app.. I broke down and applied to LSU, I would really like to live in Louisiana.. after leaving I figured out how much I like it there. So I applied to LSU, maybe I can get a scholarship or something.

3/5: Hopefully now I can get some larger scholarships. At this point I think I am going to go where the money is and since my LSAT went up some maybe some of these schools will offer money.

3/5: Michigan State upped my scholarship to 100% and an invitation to the King Scholars program... that's awesome.

3/19: Accepted to Iowa

3/22: I spoke with a family friend who is a lawyer at a larger firm in Texas, she has convinced me my best bet would be Iowa despite the fact that they aren't giving me any money. So that's where I'm going!

3/23: Waitlisted at Washington & Lee. I find it hilarious that at the schools whom are all tied for the rank 22 on US News, I was Rejected(ND), Waitlisted (W&L), and Accepted (Iowa).. very strange.

3/28: Now I got a scholarship at Loyola.. damn.. more decisions.

4/16: In at LSU, hmm... LSU or Iowa..

4/17: Money from LSU, which would make Iowa three times more expensive than Louisiana. I'm seriously considering LSU.

5/20: The decision has been made LSU it is. I decided that being over 100k in debt is not really worth it. I'm happy with my choice, and I think that I will be even more happy because I will be in Louisiana, with my boyfriend and all my friends.

Your Gpa isn't bad and your lsat is avg to a little above avg. If you set yourself apart with a good Personal Statement and strong Letters of Recs. you should be good. Our numbers are similar so I hope you do well.

Good mix of schools
Saturday, July 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

You have a nice range of schools and you definitely have a good shot at some of them. We have similar numbers and I'm really relying in some of my soft factors to get me into some schools and to get me money at others. I second Peteypop - make yourself stand out from the crowd. Good luck!

Good luck with ND! I'm applying ED too, hopefuly I'll see you there next fall :).

RC sucks!

I feel your pain! :(

How were you notified of being complete? GL to you!

Good luck on ND
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

It's a good place to be...alot of my friends want to stay for law school. ND, maybe more than other schools, really aims for a class that understands and wants to be at ND. So, it might not be as much of a super reach as you think.

Good luck
Saturday, October 14 2006 at 08:00 PM

All in all you sound like a hard-working blue collared candidate. I hope that reflects itself well in your PS & app! & good luck with ND!

ND

Good luck with your ND decision.. I have my fingers crossed for you. I'm really nervous based on what I've read and I'm not even ED.

Deferred!
Thursday, October 19 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on the ND deferral! Good luck retaking your LSAT - it would be so great if you joined me at ND next fall!

Sorry about the Minnesota rejection, but welcome to the club. Also, congrats on the ND deferral! I think you have a great shot in the regular pool.

Congrats

Congratulations on getting accepted at MSU. I sent my app in just a few days after you and I just (12/30) got a postcard from them saying my application is complete. Good luck with the rest of your schools~

I feel your pain
Saturday, October 07 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey, I know what you're saying about IU-and I'm a Colts fan. I have similar numbers and I got rejected too. It's definitely not good for the ego.

ND
Saturday, October 14 2006 at 08:00 PM

I got waitlisted.... grrrr......

hey, can you IM SimonSays00 on AIM .... i wanna ask you a question

ND
Sunday, July 09 2006 at 08:00 PM

what's the big attraction to U. Notre Dame?

Don't give up yet!
Tuesday, July 25 2006 at 08:00 PM

You wanted to go to ND so badly! If they denied you without knowing the new LSAT score, you should try writing and petitioning them to reconsider. Some schools, like Florida, actually have that option, and I'm sure ND would also do the same. You worked hard, and they should know that. If you would definitely go if accepted, you should give it a shot!

ND
Tuesday, August 22 2006 at 08:00 PM

I'm sorry to hear about ND. Even through my own bitterness at my rejection I was rooting for you, especially since you were taking the LSAT again and all. Congrats on your increase, though! Are you leaning any particular direction now?

Scholarship offer came in the mail.
Saturday, July 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for visiting my page. My scholarship offer from Iowa came in the mail about a month and a half after my acceptance letter arrived. Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of Iowa and best of luck to you in the rest of the cycle.

Congrats!
Tuesday, August 22 2006 at 08:00 PM

WTG on Iowa! That's awesome!

LSU
Monday, November 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

I am so excited about LSU. If you are on facebook, join the LSU Law 2010 group. We are all discussing a get together this summer and trading housing / roommate information. Also feel free to email me if you have any questions about any LSU related. You made a wise choice!

Congrats
Tuesday, July 04 2006 at 08:00 PM

Welcome to the club. Tough choice LSU over Iowa but a good one I think.

Iowa
Thursday, June 29 2006 at 08:00 PM

Yes, I already sent them an email to that effect.

Iowa?
Wednesday, December 06 2006 at 07:00 PM

Were you on hold at Iowa? Just curious because I think I am.
