Additional info & updates

10/14 Received my first acceptances today from Phoenix and Oklahoma City! Decided to take a chance and apply at Alabama.

10/19 Received packet from OK City - 18K scholarship as long as I maintain in the top half of the class. Phoenix offered $12,500 as long as I maintain a 3.0. However, they also state because of the grading curve, 70% of all students lose their scholarship after the first year.

10/20 Saw an article today about Phoenix Law Bar passage for July 2011 was 61.8%. The admissions packet I received boasted an 80% passage rate. Sent an email to the admissions office and they confirmed the low passage rate and stated "our school is looking into ways to improve." If anyone is thinking about Phoenix send me a private message and I will forward this email to you. Withdrawing today.

10/21 Received an email to check my status with Miami. "My application has been put on hold and will be resubmitted to the board before April 30." Received acceptance letter from South Dakota.

11/4 Accepted to Florida Coastal via online status checker. Withdrawing today.

11/9 Accepted to Stetson via email.

11/11 Application to Tulsa rejected via status checker.

11/30 Accepted to Quinnipiac via email.

12/1 Just received a phone call that I was accepted to the University of Minnesota!!!!! I'm a Gopher baby!!!

12/6 Sent withdraw notices to all schools this afternoon and submitted the $750 seat deposit to Minnesota.

hello
Saturday, May 14 2011 at 08:00 PM

Thank you for the kind words sir.

HEY!
Sunday, July 24 2011 at 08:00 PM

Don't say you're not going to get into Alabama! Stranger things have happened! Stay encouraged! :)

WVU
Thursday, February 03 2011 at 07:00 PM

Dude, with those numbers, apply to WVU. The school is a lot better than most of the schools you applied to and you should probably get in. The job prospects at WVU are far better than a lot of those schools in your list.

Miami
Monday, September 26 2011 at 08:00 PM

I got the same notice from U Miami. I'm not sure if it means wait-list though. They're quick if it is. Do you know if they have "early action" admission? I ask, because I wonder if that's what just happened: we didn't make the EA cut, but will be considered in the general applicant pool (?). What do you think?

Tuesday, September 20 2011 at 08:00 PM

Dude your best best is University Of Oklahoma. They have a great network that enable people to get biglaw jobs in Oklahoma and in Texas. I'd def put that as my number 1 choice if I were you

hahaha
Tuesday, September 20 2011 at 08:00 PM

Well Phoenix gave me a Fee waiver so I of course I am not attending. To be honest, I don't think I will even Attend law school at all unless I get into Cardozo ( which is unlikely), because I already been admitted for the masters degree program at Penn State. And, I don't wanna past that up no good reason

Phoenix
Wednesday, September 07 2011 at 08:00 PM

Yea, i got in at Phoenix too. Gave me a good laugh at their passage rates. If you can fwd that message to me via email.

Stetson
Sunday, July 24 2011 at 08:00 PM

I don't think you'll get a rejection from Stetson. My reasoning for saying this is that I awoke to an email from Stetson rejecting me. I'm thinking if you were rejected, they would've already sent you an email. When I checked Stetson's status yesterday, it showed "ready for review," therefore, I had no idea it was even being reviewed. So, I guess I feel that if they changed your status to "decision sent," and you haven't gotten an email, there is a good possibility that you got accepted based on my situation with them. *Fingers crossed for you!*

I like being optimistic!
Sunday, July 24 2011 at 08:00 PM

Notice I said "optimistic" instead of "right." Now only if everyone would be just as optimistic! *Clears throat* even you...lol. You counted yourself out before the decision even came. Remember, it ain't over til it's over (aka in black and white)! :)

Monday, June 27 2011 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Stetson! I'm still waiting -.- its also one of my top choices

Stetson
Monday, October 31 2011 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Stetson. It's a beautiful school and it's the only school in the Tampa Bay market, has great local job prospects and respect.

Sorry to hear...
Sunday, July 24 2011 at 08:00 PM

...about Tulsa. I guess it goes to prove what I've always believed: admissions committee's don't just look at the hard numbers. If they did, you would've been in there of course! Nonetheless, don't let it bum you out...it made room for better choices. That's all.

Friday, September 09 2011 at 08:00 PM

Don't worry about Tulsa... I'm sure you'll get into better schools. And, don't beat yourself up... I got rejected as well with a 3.78 and 169.

Congrats on...
Friday, November 25 2011 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Minnesota! I got my phone call today. Can't wait to go over the admissions packet they send.

Congrats
Monday, June 27 2011 at 08:00 PM

Big congrats on Minnesota!

From one serviceman to another
Thursday, December 01 2011 at 07:00 PM

Thank you for your service to this country and congrats on Minnesota. I recieved a phone call from them also. Good to know that there will be another military man attending.

Waiting
Thursday, December 01 2011 at 07:00 PM

Once the admissions packet comes in the mail I'll probably withdraw from most other schools depending on what kind of aid I recieve.

WOW!
Wednesday, July 14 2010 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on MN! I should have applied there! My softs aren't as good as yours, but my numbers are a little higher. That's agreat school. You were right to ED there.

Area of Interest
Tuesday, August 02 2005 at 08:00 PM

Are you from MN? I ask only because I was wondering what the draw to MN was versus an acceptance to a place such as Drake. Is your particular interest offered at MN and nowhere else? I'm from the Midwest North so I'm trying to figure out why someone's #1 would be even colder than where I am. :)

MN vs. UM
Thursday, November 10 2011 at 07:00 PM

Wow, in at #20 MN and waitlisted at #74 UM. Congrats. I don't understand the process.

Education Assistance
Thursday, December 01 2011 at 07:00 PM

I am hoping that my GI Bill will help cover some of the costs, I know that there is a provision in there somewhere for out-of-state tuition. If not I know that I will get a housing allowance of some sort but yeah UMN is freaking expensive. It is a Top 20 though so understandable.

Congrats
Wednesday, September 28 2011 at 08:00 PM

From one vet to another, congrats on Minnesota! You might be a squid, but well deserved :).

QU scholarship
Thursday, November 24 2011 at 07:00 PM

When did you get your scholarship info for Quinnipiac? Did it come in the mail with your letter or did you have to wait for a separate thing?

Re: Hi
Thursday, December 01 2011 at 07:00 PM

I recieved it last week. That's how I found out about the scholarship offer.

Cost
Thursday, December 01 2011 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, it's priced like a T14

Re: Hey
Tuesday, May 31 2011 at 08:00 PM

No, at this point I still haven't made a decision. I was held at Northwestern, I so I still sort of hoping that works out. If it doesn't, MN is actually my third choice. However, I want IU to give me instate tuition (something I am trying to figure out now) or W&L to give me the Yellow Ribbon Program. I'll just have to see. If none of those work, then I'll see you in MN.
