Extra Curricular Information

Lots of MUN with multiple wins
Worked for Law Firm

My GPA is only low b/c I had med problems one semester and withdrew over the phone, but it didn't go through. So I had a 3.7 then 3 Fs. I wrote an addendum to that effect so if someone actually reads it I may have more of a shot.

I applied late in the cycle b/c I've been going thru divorce and have had to work a lot plus take care of my kiddo. Here's hoping!!!!

Additional info & updates

Single Mom, 25 yrs old
Current WA Resident - totally shocked at UW rejection!

01/15- In at FSU via phone call. Not really a big surprise, but I'm glad my first decision was an acceptance!!!! I did the victory dance around my house! Its official, I'm going to law school baby!

01/27 - In at St. Louis via fawncy envelope. I rec'd a pen and everything. They have style

01/28 - Rec'd letter from FSU, lol kind of anti-climactic and a thin letter no less. Also no pen...pout

01/30 - Reject at UW a mere 10 days after file went complete. Total shock. I am a WA resident with decent enough credentials I didn't think I'd get dinged so soon.

Month of February: NADA NADA NADA - Ad Comms, please you're killing me here!!!!

02/20 - Award of 81k from St. Louis. Very nice. So now I am bargaining with FSU for money.

03/08 - Thin envelope of death from UT - Austin. Not really shocking. Not a resident so whatever :)

03/11- In at Emory! Got an email inviting me to chat w/ admissions and inside it say congrats again on your acceptance to Emory. I called them to make sure, they said yes I just hadn't been notified yet officially. Too funny. Super excited though, hope this bodes well for the rest of the cycle. Had to say the UW reject had me worried! Btw the dates are correct for Emory. If you are shocked... so am I.

03/18- Waitlisted at Hastings via email. Someone please tell me how that happened? How do you get into Emory and get WL at Hastings??? Not that it isn't a great school, I'm not knocking it. Just surprised.

03/22 - Dinged @ UVA

03/24 - WL @ WM - So heartbroken. It is my top choice, but I will do all I can to get in! Le Sigh!!!

03/28- WL @ ND - No big surpise I am WL queen! Via not-so-skinny letter

03/31 WL @ Wake. Its just funny now... via email.

04/03/08 WL @ American. MAKE UP YOUR MINDS PEOPLE!!! Via chunky letter.

04/04/08 - WL @ Washington U.S.L

04/05/08 - WL Accept at Wake Forest via phone call from the dean

04/15/08- IN AT WILLIAM AND MARY VIA PHONE CALL!!! WOOO HOO BABY!

04/15/08 - Waitlist at Fordham! Via status checker!

04/16/08 - Waitlist at BC. This is just ridiculous. Lol

04/18/08 - Pulled up from WL @ American VIA email. Yeah yeah so now EVERYBODY wants me. LOL!!!!

04/22/08 - WL at UNC via email. Now Cornell, you need to WL me. I need something to pass on to my grandkids! Oh yeah and Harvard, please reject me at least - I'd feel really lame if you guys didn't even bother rejecting me :)

05/19/08 - WOW!!! In at NOTRE DAME with $42,000. Thought I had withdrawn - wow. Just wow. Thats about $42,000 more than WM (beloved though they are) are offering me. Why now? Lol. Also, got rejection EMAIL from Harvard. I just read in the paper how Harvard is now the richest university b/c of some new ginormous endowment - come out f*ers you can afford the damn stamp!

On Emory. I knew it was just a matter of time before the schools started knocking down your door!

haha, I did seriously consider having it framed but settled for just saving it in pristine conditions so I can one day pass it down to my grandchildren. Congrats on Emory! I bet you can expect at least 25k from them too! Hope the rest of your cycle goes well, I can't help but have a soft spot for anyone with #s similar to my own ;) Good luck!

Congrats on Emory

Did your status change at all on the checker at Emory? Mine has been at complete for like 5 months now.

yeah very strange, still haven't gotten the acceptance letter in the mail.. just out of curiosity, which would you prefer - emory or w&m? they seem neck-and-neck on a lot of things.

Don't fret the door isn't closed. You just need to go up to it and push it open! Make sure you write a LOCI and tell them they are your first choice! I think the only reason they are WLing now is because they want to see how the first wave of acceptances go and look at how many seats are left. You're numbers well within their acceptance pile and it's only a matter of time and effort on your part to get in! Let me know when they let you in.

Congrats on WM

Did you send them anything to have them see it your way? its my top choice too!

W&M
Wednesday, October 04 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats!! Do you have any pointers for getting off the waitlist @ W&M??!?!? And again congrats!!

WM Waitlist
Friday, February 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

WM was my top choice. When I wrote my LOCI letter (letter of continued interest) I told them that could expect a commitment from me. I also flew out and arranged an interview. I would just recommend staying in touch with them and letting them know they are tops (if they are). I was pretty shocked to get in so soon, but definitely relieved! Best wishes to everyone. I have to say this was really unexpected and when I started this whole process I never thought it would work out - lol.

Congrats on all your acceptances and scholarships! I\'m still on the WL at UNC and Wake Forest, which are my top 2 choices...I saw you got a scholarship at Wake off the waitlist- congrats! Did you do anything to ask for it/add stuff to your application/anything like that? I\'m looking for all the help I can get at this point!!
