Additional info & updates

4/1--MERCER FOR ME! Cycle is over--see everyone in Macon in the fall!

4/1--Waitlisted at South Carolina.

3/30--Waitlisted at U of Richmond today. Small white envelope. Flattered, however, I'm turning in my seat deposit at Mercer tomorrow!

3/17--Rejected at Wake via snailmail. Thought I would get waitlisted because of my diversity statement, but alas.

2/12--Rejected at UGA. Whatever. They were rude on the phone anyway. Still would have been nice! Also, received an e-mail response from South Carolina saying that my application is being held over for a second review and that I should hear back in early March.

2/9--In at Samford via snail mail! Yay!

2/4--Status checker changed to "Decision Mailed" at Samford today. I'm crossing my fingers!

2/2--Status checker says "Administrative Review" at Wake Forest.

1/26--Went Under Review at Samford today--hoping for a speedy and positive result!

1/23--Preview Day at Mercer Law. I really enjoyed my afternoon there!

1/20--In at Mercer (my alma mater) via snailmail! Small white envelope. Happy Inauguration Day--I'm going to law school! My online status-checker still says "File is complete-ready for review," but I noticed in the corner that it said "Decision Letter Mailed 01-15-09." I didn't get it until today, though!

1/10--Getting anxious and cannot wait for admissions committees to begin meeting next week!

Thanks for the well wishes! I hope your cycle goes well! And who knows, maybe we will be classmates at South Carolina! I will add you to my watch list! Good luck again!

Thanks! I've been anxiously waiting and it's good to know I'm in somewhere! If not OK/TX, I'd like to stay in the south or southeast, so maybe I'll send one to S.Carolina for kicks. You from Georgia originally?

Saturday, January 05 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Mercer! My status checker says the same thing and my decision was mailed today. Hoping I have the result you did.

Thanks chio, (and yes I love 30 rock, you're actually one of the only people who got my name haha) congrats on mercer and good luck with everything! (especially UGA)

Thursday, January 22 2009 at 07:00 PM

I created my account so now you can creep on me too! I am starting everything - thanks again for helping me and inspiring me!

A long time ago they said decisions would only take two to four weeks, but then they got backed up in admissions and I just got my acceptance a couple days ago.

Saturday, January 05 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hi! I just received my acceptance to Mercer. Samford's came last Friday. Good luck and hopefully you'll hear soon!

Saturday, January 05 2008 at 07:00 PM

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. I was very familiar with the area and spend a lot of time in Birmingham, but fell in love with the school on my visit. I'm going to try and schedule a visit to sit in on a class soon. I plan on attending Preview at Mercer on 2/20.

Wednesday, March 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey! Just out of curiosity, how did you find out you were under review @ Samford? Did your status checker change? I'm soooo ready to hear something from them!

Wednesday, March 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

My application finally went under review at Samford today so hopefully you'll be getting your decision any day now.

Saturday, January 05 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations on your acceptance to Samford!

Wednesday, March 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

On Samford!!!

Friday, June 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Sorry about UGA. But congrats on your other acceptances so far!

Tuesday, December 18 2007 at 07:00 PM

Random question, but did you visit any of the campuses yet (specifically Richmond)? If so, any thoughts? Congrats on the Mercer/Samford acceptances, good luck with the rest of your cycle!

Samford visit

Enjoy your visit to Samford. If you have a chance, check out some of the areas surrounding the school. It's a great place! I'll be at Mercer on Friday at Open House and looking forward to visiting Macon.

Congrats on Mercer!

Congratulations! I just visited Mercer's Accept Day this past weekend, and was completely suprised by how much I liked the school and the people. I have really been rethinking my decision on where to go to since I visited.
