Additional info & updates

Fluent in Spanish, conversational in Chinese.

Worked throughout college. Sometimes two jobs while attending full time.

First in family to attend college.

Feb. 3, 2009: So I go to mailbox and I have two letters. One from Baylor and one from St. Mary's. I open St. Mary's first because I felt more cofident about it, and I didn't want my first letter to be a rejection. I got in!! I am just glad I am going to A law school. Hopefully this will not be my only acceptance. Then Baylor's rejection. No biggie. :)

Feb. 27, 2009: I got my letter from Texas Tech today!! :) I was visiting the school and totally fell in love. Hopefully I'll get a scholarship, but I doubt it. Either way, I fell in love with the school and surprisingly enough, Lubbock isn't that bad!! Still waiting to hear back from other schools though.

March 5, 2009: I went on status checker for Fordham like I try to do every day, and I see: "Unfortunately, you have been denied." I thought I'd be disappointed, but I'm not. Maybe because I have already decided on Tech. :) Well at least there won't be a "what if" there.

March 23, 2009: I received my letter of acceptance from Marquette. Cool thing about it, the Dean wrote a note on the bottom left hand corner that reads:
"Ms. Perez, Congratulations. I very much hope that you will join us at Marquette."
I did the spit test.. and TADA!!!! It was actually hand written. Pretty cool. Now I don't know where I will go. I didn't expect to have options.

I have also been waitlisted at Ohio State which is amazing to me. That was a reach school, so I'm flattered. Sent in my letter of intent the very next day. Keeping fingers crossed!!

March 25, 2009: I got a pretty nice package from Marquette. Scholarship information-- $33,000. 11k per year for the three years provided I stay on as a full time student. As for someone's comment about withdrawing from schools I will not attend so he/she can have a seat, I understand where you're coming from, however, I have not yet decided where I want to go. I will not withdraw until I have decided. I've sent in deposits to two schools already, so I'm still keeping my options open. Sorry. Good luck though!

Good luck on your cycle! We have relatively similar stats and are applying to similar schools. I haven't heard a peep about going complete at St. Mary's yet and I applied at the end of December. Did they email you?

I went complete in late Sept. and heard back early Dec.

Thanks for the congrats! I applied a week or so earlier than you did so you should hear something in the next two weeks I would imagine. I am going to visit them this weekend actually and have a look around. Good luck!

Good Luck

Looks like you just started this month. Good Luck. I'm waiting to hear from all of the Texas Schools too! Let me know when you hear from St. Mary's; that was one of my top choices.

Congrats!

Congrats on St. Mary's! I checked out the campus last week. I love San Antonio!

Hey, Congrats to you too! They were fairly quick weren't they? I received a letter stating my application was received and then this. San Antonio is ok; I was stationed at Lackland for six months. What's you take? How's the area surrounding the school?

Did they send you anything at all before the acceptance? I have gotten into Tex Wes but really want to live in San Antonio.
