Additional info & updates

04/07/10-Received call from Debra Hood of FSU congratulating me on my acceptance. Well FSU can make things extremely interesting if they offer me lots of money. Although I actually would take UF over FSU and I passed on full tuition at UF. Anyways we'll see what happens. Come on Cornell and Duke! lol.

03/31/10-Due to unforseen events I have sent in my seat deposit to Wash U lol. Pretty much Wash U showed me love $$ and Emory didn't. Still going to Emory's ASD and going to try to play leverage game b/c Emory is still my fave. Wash U seat deposit is 100% refundable before May 1st so nothing set in stone. Tomorrow is also last day to accept full tuition offer from UF. Top 20 school better be worth me passing such a sweet deal up.

03/22/10-In at Wash U. Nice news while on my drive up to Duke. When i first made my top 6 list Wash U was #1 but Im not too sure about that anymore. Emory and its location takes the lead now.

03/21/10-Today is my official withdraw day. Emory is the front runner now and any school ranked behind them I'm done with except UF. That money is still very enticing. I will withdraw from ND within the next weeks. Duke on Tuesday, hope they like me.

03/17/10-The waitlist curse is broken! In at Emory Law! Well I reached a part of my goal. I wanted top 20 and only chance I have now at top 10 is Duke.

03/15/10-Just getting back from a crazy spring break in Panama City. What else to greet me in my mailbox but a Vandy waitlist. Also noticed 15k from UF. Barring a late upset, UF looks like they'll get my money while I ride the waitlist wave this summer.

02/24/10-In at Miami. Was pretty much expected as it was one of my safe schools lol. Still charging toward getting in at Duke and Cornell though.

02/21/10-With all of these recent waitlists I have decided I would be crazy not to try my hardest to get into some of these schools. Namely, Duke and Cornell as of right now. Sucks that I wont know my fate until late summer but it'll be worth it in the end I think. Here's to waitlist purgatory lol.

02/06/10-In at UF! So happy to get that first yes. I am officially attending law school yay!I know it has been awhile since I have updated my profile but I'll be honest I was geting so many no's I decided to wait till I got a yes to update lol. I'm back though and ready to rock.

01/14/10-The big boys are saying no but they're reaches so not too disappointed.

12/29/09-Fears were realized, didnt do as well on lsat this time around. At least im going to be complete at everywhere now. Let the decisions begin!

12/08/09-Ready for the rejections to start rolling in lol. Retook LSAT 3 days ago, feel like I did about the same as last.

11/14/09-Finally started applying yesterday. This process will be quite expensive...

11/09/09-One LOR was received by LSAC. One more definitely will be received this week and then I'll start applying.

10/17/09-Received LSAT score yesterday, ho hum about it, retaking it in December but at least have a great shot at top 20. Once LOR's are finally sent in, all apps will be complete

I received the decision by mail and it was actually sent to my parents house. Status checker only notified when letter was sent out

Congrats!

Congrats on your acceptances so far and good luck on the rest of your cycle, especially those pesky waitlists!

Thanks!
Wednesday, January 27 2010 at 07:00 PM

Your message of encouragement made me feel better lol. As I said on my profile, I'm happy getting into any 1 of these schools! Hopefully all is well that ends well...If you can, go in for an interview with the schools you were waitlisted at...I've heard thats a key to getting admitted once your waitlisted. I'm putting you on my watchlist, good luck!

You attend FSU in Tally? That's awesome, I graduated in 2008. Great time and great school

Wednesday, January 27 2010 at 07:00 PM

You really did have an accurate prediction for you! I've gotton in Seton Hall & miami so far and waitlisted at Pitt. I think thats a good sign. holla, I'm going to law school next year!! Good luck with the Duke interview!

No Money from Emory?

Monday, September 28 2009 at 08:00 PM

Interesting that they emailed your decision. I requested an email after they had mailed mine and they said they cant do that..maybe that means it is a reject. Oh well will find out when i get back home in 2 weeks.

Monday, January 18 2010 at 07:00 PM

Congrats at Wash U man!

Monday, September 28 2009 at 08:00 PM

At this point i am trying to decide between Iowa's full ride and UIUC's 50%..leaning towards UIUC..not sure if it is the right call at the moment..

Monday, September 28 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hoping Vandy comes through..i applied super late though..a week before their deadline...Congrats on WashU...if they take me off the wait list and give me some $$, i might be there..

congrats

congrats to you as well for being able to come to a decision. you actually had many more good options than i did, so i'm guessing you had a tougher time choosing.
