Applying for the January 2006 class at John Marshall Law School
Applied for both the full-time day program and the part-time evening program
Applied for the August 2006 class at Florida Coastal School of Law after an invitation to re-apply from the Director of Admissions (was admitted to the Fall 2005 class, but chose not to attend)
Accepted to John Marshall and sent in seat deposit of $400 on 10/17 in case I do not get admitted to Loyola.
Accepted to FCSL on 10/20/05 w/ $10,000 Governor's Scholarship, but would rather attend JMLS in Chicago than FCSL, so declined to accept FCSL's scholarship.
Received Kent's completion postcard on 11/22, but it was postmarked on 11/14.
Received the completion e-mail from Loyola on 11/23, but they stated they do not review any files until after the holidays and do not expect any decisions to be mailed out until after Winter Break. There goes my chance to even go there anyway. Good thing there was no fee to apply online. So I guess I'm waiting for Kent to accept or deny me. An acceptance means waiting until next Fall to start law school, but at a T-100 school. A denial means I attend John Marshall in January. We'll see what happens. Hopefully I'll know my situation by Christmas.
Went to Orientation and first week of classes at John Marshall, only to get a Kent acceptance letter at the end of the first week on Friday. Actually, I got an acceptance e-mail from the Dean. I haven't gotten the letter in the mail yet. Hopefully I'll get it on Monday and find out whether I got a scholarship there or not. Because if I did, it's bye bye John Marshall and hello Kent in the Fall.
I didn't really like the classes I went to at John Marshall anyway. The Torts professor Kandaras for the day division outright sucks! The Property Professor is fine. I took the evening Contracts class for schedule reasons and Spanbauer is OK, but very tough and requires all the facts in her briefs. And I took the Saturday Lawyering Skills section and that teacher is just a joke. So...hopefully I did get a scholarship from Kent. Why turn down a T-100 for a Tier 4 anyway?
Spoke to Dean Krentz at Kent and found out I got a 2000 scholarship. Withdrew from John Marshall on 1-27-06. Will attend Kent in the Fall.
Delivered acceptance sheet and $400 deposit to Kent on 2-14-06.
Received several differnt waitlist letters from Loyola, the final one stating that there was no room for waitlisted students. But it really never mattered anyway.
6-24-2006 Received offer from Assistant Dean of Admissions at Kent to switch to full-time day program and accepted that offer.
