10-30-10: Apps into Maine, UNH and NESL.
11-1-10: App at Maine went to complete, called admissions office, board will not meet until after Thanksgiving.
11-2-10: Northeastern offered a fee waiver, I am under their 25th, but within their LSAT quota, $12 is worth the peace of mind.
11-10-10: Suffolk emailed me and offered a fee waiver, another $12 for peace of mind, I have a much better chance here than NUSL, and I heard they place well in Boston firms. The 25k they offer veterans doesn't hurt.
11-12-10: Application went live at NESL, I have been seeing acceptances from them, hopefully one in the mail for me.
11-19-10: My application at UNH went live; they finally updated their site from the old Franklin Pierce imagery. Called the admissions office, I should hear something within a week.
11-20-10: First acceptance from NESL!! It is my safety school, but good to see anyways. I will put in a financial aid packet, need to do more research into the school and their VA benefits.
11-29-10: Email from Suffolk (paraphrased): "Application is complete and under review, you'll hear something by mid-April". Ugh, this will be a long 4 months.
12-2-10: Application at UNH is "Under Review"
12-3-10: What a nifty surprise... logged onto UNH status checker expecting to see Under Review, and it said Accepted!
12-6-10: Accepted to UML via status checker!!!
12-18-10: In at Suffolk via small white envelope!! 4 for 5 baby!
01-03-11: Final decision came via a rejection email today from Northeastern. I was not expecting to get in there, and if I did get in, I don%u2019t think I would have ended up attending anyways.
As of today, I am withdrawing my applications to New England, Suffolk, and New Hampshire. Maine is my number one choice and with the Yellow Ribbon that they offered, no other school will come close financially. Best of luck to all of the other applicants I have interacted with and if you will be attending Maine Law in 2011 please drop me a line!
Happy New Year!
