11/3 - 7 Apps in, let the games begin. Phoenix sent me an email asking me to apply. Website indicated no app fee - no problem! BTW I read that TX Wesleyan will waive the app fee if you submit electronically and it's TRUE! GL.
11/12 - Complete at Akron, via email.
11/14&15 - Rec'd email from Florida Coastal which said something about 10-12k scholarship... wrote back asking for fee waiver, and they said OK. So I applied.
11/21 - Sent an update on my Character & Fitness to all schools - this may delay a decision, but I figured I'd put this in here in case anyone (i.e. me) was wondering why I'm not seeing results from ANYONE yet.
11/30 - FCSL sent a duplicate email - same as before? I emailed back to verify my file. I applied 11/15, LSDAS report ordered 11/16. ??? Cleveland-State complete via email.
12/1 - Acceptance from FCSL w/ 12k scholarship; $$ requires 3.0 gpa and full-time status. Big envelope.
12/4 - STCL finally ordered my LSDAS report.
12/13 - email from TX Wes said my app was complete, decision 4-6 weeks.
12/26 - large envelopes from Cooley and Cleveland State. Cooley: 50% tuition scholarship.
1/7 - Email from UAkron, deferred. Not one of my main choices, but I prefer acceptance packets. HA!
1/14 - STCL email indicating completed status (? wow... two and a half months to complete?) and that decisions would be mailed between mid-February and April. Neat.
1/16 - OK... I got a small, thin envelope from St. Mary's that made me shit my pants. Acceptance letters should NOT come in small, thin envelopes. Accepted, nonetheless. If I get a scholarship to St. Mary's I'll stay in San Antonio, for sheezy.
1/18 - Rec'd scholarship from St. Mary's. $20k for 4 years (part time). That'll pretty much sow things up barring a miracle from Houston or Dallas (i.e. it's going to take a sweet deal from U of H [which I doubt I'll even get in] or amazing scholarships from TXWes or STCL to make me move). Let's see what happens.
1/28 - U of H status changed to 'File in Review.' Ack! Don't look too hard, Cougars.
2/1 - TXWes sent me an email informing me they have a new app status checker on their homepage (www.law.txwes.edu). You have to have a username and password, though... those were included in the email today.
2/13 - My first rejection letter. From... Phoenix??? Phoenix, we have a problem. Your sister school in Florida (you know, the fully accredited one which accepts Federal Aid programs) not only accepted me, but offered me a $36,000 scholarship. I wasn't holding out for PhoenixLaw, but it's a bit of a shock to get rejected from such a sketchy school. One finger up to you, Phoenix.
2/27 - TXWes status changed to decision rendered/decision mailed via online status checker.
2/29 - TXWes acceptance with $8000 total scholarship, $4k for the first year, renewable with a 3.0 gpa. Probably not going to take this deal.
3/1 - Rec'd letter from Cleveland-State, just a congratulations.
3/2 - Rec'd phonecall from Cleveland-State asking if I had any questions. Shrug.
3/4 - Rec'd email from STCL regarding their online status checker. http://happy.stcl.edu/YourStatus/membership/logon.aspx
Shows my application complete as of 12/31/07. No change in 64 days?
3/8 - After much strife, the University of Houston Law Center has denied my request for admission. No surprise here. Still, disappointment.
3/15 - I honestly believe that STCL has forgotten about me.
3/28 - Sent deposit to St. Mary's (due 4/1). Withdrawing at TXWes, Cooley, FCSL, Akron, and Cleveland State. Still no word from South Texas College of Law.
4/3 - STCL online status changed to 'Decision Mailed'
4/7 - STCL acceptance letter. No mention of scholarship, so this one goes in the can.
Hello, St. Mary's Law. I'm happy with the cycle; 6-2-1 ain't bad for a GPA like mine, and thank God for the StMU scholarship. See y'all at St. Mary's.
