June '08: 164
Oct '08: 161
June '09: 167

Note that I was applying with a 164, and only had the 167 after I had heard from all schools. I took it in an attempt to get off of waitlists.

I also am a double-legacy at Michigan. Mom and Dad both attended the law school.

12/1/2008
First acceptance. Small white envelope from Wisconsin-Madison.

12/8/2008
Small white envelope from Notre Dame. Waitlisted.

12/10/2008
Accepted today to Loyola via voicemail message from the dean.

12/23/08
Got the call from BU. In.

12/29/08
Status checker from the Gophers changed to "decision letter sent" this morning. No phone call, so I assume a rejection.

1/5/09
Returned from vacation...in at Colorado. As I was sure, rejection from Minnesota.

1/7/09
Informal email from Virginia. Rejected.

1/8/09
Called up the admissions offices at Stanford and Cornell to check on my dean's certifications. Stanford had it and told me I'm complete. Cornell said they probably have it but are really backed up with mail.

I also called North Carolina at Chapel Hill and they said that my residency info is in, and that my file should be complete, but they haven't checked it in yet.

1/13/09
Rejected from Northwestern via email (they put the decisions up only on status checker).

Also, "On Hold for Second Review" today at Illinois.

1/26/09
Letter from Cornell that says I'm "on reserve." I realize this isn't technically a waitlist but, since they have rejected people, and since LSN has no option for this status, I'll just call it a waitlist for now. Even though it's not. Apparently the official waitlist doesn't even start until May.

1/29/2009
Letter in the mail today from UCLA. Waitlisted.

2/2/2009
Rejected at Columbia.

2/7/2009
Got my rejection from U of C yesterday. Got a link to a survey from Illinois that apparently means I'm on the waitlist.

2/13/2009
Accepted at UNC via email.

2/15/2009
Rejected at Duke via a letter that probably got here on the 13th.

2/27/2009
Waitlisted at Michigan via email.

3/4/2009
Rejected from Texas via status checker.

3/9/2009
Received Texas rejection letter, and an additional 24,000 per year from Loyola-Chicago.

3/20/2009
Rejected from Harvard via email.
Also, email from CU-Boulder with a generous scholarship, 16K a year for the first year and 8K each year after that.

3/29/2009
Rejected from Stanford via letter.
7500/year at Carolina via email.

4/8/2009
Placed on hold (not on the waitlist, apparently there's a difference) at Wash U-St. Louis.

4/10/2009
Got waitlisted at Emory by snail mail.

4/17/2009
I have now withdrawn from all admits except for Wisconsin, where I selected their option of holding my spot without committing.

5/7/2009
Off the Notre Dame waitlist by email. They said the acceptance packet has been mailed.

5/15/2009
Withdrew from Wisconsin.

6/5/2009
Withdrew from Illinois.

6/22/2009
Rejected off the Reserve list from Cornell.
Withdrew from Wash U and Emory.

6/25/2009
Got my new LSAT score. 167. Hopefully this will help with Michigan and UCLA.

8/26/2009
Made it to the bitter end at the University of Michigan. I was finally released today. Via email, they said that everybody showed up for orientation, leaving no room for me. I tried.

Congrats on your cycle so far, have you gone complete at UNC yet? I applied around the same time and got my email saying they got it on the exact same day but no word on going complete. Thanks!

Best of luck, number twin!

Congrats on getting off the waitlist!! You've given me some hope... my numbers are slightly below yours, but I'm hoping and praying that I get into ND soon...

Friday, October 24 2008 at 08:00 PM

Strange that things are happening to us at the same schools at the same time...congrats on getting off the ND waitlist also!
