**Scholarship units are dollars/yr (Is that IUPAC approved?)
10/25 all applications have been transmitted via LSDAS. Baylor, Duke, and L&C have all so far requestd reports. I'm still waiting on ONE recommendation to clear, hopefully within the next day or so.
10/28 Received a letter from Baylor thanking me for applying. I know it's no guarantee of anything, but it's still exciting to know the process has begun.
10/30 2nd letter of recommendation received and processed. Now it's all out of my hands! Still waiting on UGA, Vermont, and Maryland to request my report.
11/3 Vermont has requested my report, but they told me over the phone that apps won't be reviewed until December. Notified of complete file at Baylor.
11/6 UGA has requested my report. I received a letter 2 days ago from L&C with my status login info. Anyone have any clues about Maryland's timeline? They're the only ones I have yet to hear from.
11/9 I listed my "complete" status at FSU as today. It may have been complete earlier, but I didn't check the online status until today. Received email from UOregon about file completion. Listed complete on L&C website.
11/13 Acceptance letter from FSU!! WOOHOO!! Came in a small, moderately puffy envelope. Let's hear it for quick turn-around! I also received a follow-up phone call from the Dir. of Admissions on the 14th. Personal touches like that matter a lot.
12/8 Acceptance notification from Vermont!! My email spam filter complicated things a bit, but I was able to get things straight. YAY! Received the HUGE envelope a couple of days later.
12/13 Status checker for UGA indicates that I've been waitlisted. UGA, you were my home for undergrad. UGA, you were my home for a Masters degree. Alas, it appears another will gain my favor for my law degree.
12/15 Offered $15,000/yr from Vermont, contingent upon maintaining 2.5 GPA. Very exciting!
12/18 Acceptance letter from Maryland. The thin envelope would have had me fooled if it weren't for the "Congratulations!" on the outside. They promise more literature in coming days.
12/21 Acceptance folder from Pace! The enclosed letter mentioned the Env. Center Merit Scholarship offer. I hadn't heard anything from them, and really didn't expect to before Christmas!
1/5 Received letter with Goldstein Envrionmental Merit Scholarship offer from FSU. Hand-signed congratulations from Nancy Benavides! Very nice.
1/26 Acceptance email from Baylor! This was quite a surprise! I was honestly expecting a deferrment, at best. Literature to follow in the mail.
2/9 Acceptance folder from L&C! I'm so excited! Now I have a legitimate excuse to head out to the West Coast in the next month or two.
2/23 Rejection letter from Duke. I sorta figured it was a matter of time, but I just had to apply. That's what reaches are all about, right?
2/26 Acceptance envelope from Oregon! AND a $6,000/yr scholarship offer!
4/7 Sending in my seat deposit to FSU today and sending in all of my withdrawals. It's been fun, but I'm really most excited about being in Tallahassee in the Fall! Let me know if I'll see you there!
Well, as far as I'm concerned, this concludes my application cycle.
Best of luck everyone, and feel free to post any questions or comments!
