Additional info & updates

Received many fee waivers, did not apply to all of them.

11-07-07 - ALL APPS ARE IN!!! what a relief! just waiting to go complete now!

12-07: All Apps complete

12-07: In at Washington and Lee via email! First one

12-18: In at Emory via Phone Call!!! I was in the doctors office and missed it, but much to my surprise, I received a voicemail from the dean of admission saying she just signed my letter of acceptance!!!!!I didn't think they were going to start making decisions before January!

12-19: In at UIUC! I called them because my status checker said letter mailed on the 13th and I still didn't have it. I talked to suzanne, and she said I was in with a15k a year scholarship! I can't believe how well this cycle is going!!

12-20: I called UGA, and they said they weren't makin any more decisions before the holiday break :-( I am perplexed as to why I haven't gotten in yet, Ive been in review for weeks!! I don't really expect anymore before Christmas, except for maybe Ohio State, because I went to decision there a few days ago, but I am really excited about the 3 T25 acceptances so early in the game! I am a lucky man!!! :-)

12-23: I didn't think there were any more acceptances comin my way, but my mom called on Sunday and said a big package from Ga. State arrived on Saturday. She opened it, and sure enough, it was an acceptance!! I am really hopin for a full scholly there, coming out of law school with zero debt is very attractive to me!

01-04: Went and picked up mail, and much to my dismay, my first ding appeared from Ohio State dated 12/21. I was kind of surprised, but I will guess that I was a yield protect, or dissed by a in-state quota system. I really thought I would get in there! To quote from Bad Santa: "well they all can't be winners now can they"

01-15: Received two letters yesterday, one from Michigan and one from Wisconsin. As I was expecting, I was rejected at Michigan, and rightly so, as I was far below their numbers. Hey, at the only reason I even took a shot was because I received a fee waiver, so its only 12 bucks down the drain. However, I was accepted at Wisconsin, which is very nice! I needed this to counter the fluke rejection at Ohio State! The people from Wisconsin have been very nice ever since the LSAC forum!!! Also, I emailed UGA today to see about my file. It has been in review for a month and a half, and I am becoming VERY anxious!!

01-18: Emailed UGA a few days ago and asked what was up with my app bc it had been a month and a half in review. Checked today on Friday and I was WAITLISTED!!! I am 99% sure this has to do with my criminal record and the fact that I did poorly at UGA while at undergrad there for my first year at college. I am going to try to have a sitdown with someone and write a LOCI. I really want to show them that I am an excellent candidate and that my past does not reflect who I am today! :-(

01-19: Picked up the mail and received an envelope from vanderbilt. It was more than one page, so I knew then that it was a waitlist. I am pretty happy with a waitlist from Vandy. I thought I was going to get outright rejected. This is a good waitlist, yesterdays depressing news with the Georgia waitlist was not a good waitlist. I guess I will ride that Vandy waitlist out with a bunch of my other 166ers ;-)

- Interesting sidenote, I went out with some buddies to Virginia highlands to go barhopping, and I ran into a girl I was arrested with in Athens. Small world story, but she actually is going to law school next year too, and her wanting to be an attorney was started with the bad treatment we recieved in court. That is also when i really started to want to be an attorney. It really is a small world!!

-Also, while I was writing this, there was about an inch of snow on the ground in Georgia. What the heck?

01-22: Thin white envelope arrived from Notre Dame. I knew that was bad news. Surely enough, it was a rejection letter. Oh well, you can't win them all. Also, talked to Georgia Law, and I am going up to Athens in a few weeks to talk with the admissions committee about my file. I am going to try to show them the real me, and convince them that accepting me would be the best thing they ever did.

01-25: Received an email from Baylor Law saying I was accepted with a half tuition scholarship!! I am pretty excited, because I have had a string of bad news letters for a little while now, but hopefully I am back on track.

01-26: Received a thin white envelope from GULC and knew it was a rejection. I am totally cool w/ that as I was expecting it. I am way below the numbers there. Also recieved a letter from Washington and Lee stating some of their schools objective. W & L has been very nice, and I hope to go to ASW up there soon!

01-30: Received an email from Washington and Lee saying I have received a scholarship in the amount of $15,800 per year! That is big news and I am really excited :-)

02-05: Withdrew application from UGA along with a lengthy letter explaining how rude and indifferent the admissions committee has been. Georgia Law wins the award for the rudest and most unorganized admissions committee. I am completely fed up with their rediculousness, and cannot imagine attending a school that treats prosepective students how they have treated me.

****UPDATE - about 20 minutes after I sent the long email explaining my withdrawal and how offended I was by the treatment I recieved from the UGA admissions office, I received a call from the assistant director of admissions (who I guess is the de facto head of admissions while the spot is empty) Gregory Roseboro. He was very nice and apologetic about the rude behavior of the admissions office, and explained that I was not waitlisted, but rather administratively flagged for question 24 about criminal history. He wanted me to go up there and to talk with the admissions committee. I decided to go ahead and still withdraw from the school, because the treatment that I received from the admissions office was unacceptable to me. Director Roseboro's phone call was the first bit of attention I have received from Georgia, and although he was nice, I cannot get over the many bad-faith actions I witnessed throughout the months of waiting for a decision.

02-13: All seems quiet on the homefront. I have recieve emails from both Ga. State and Emory inviting me to attend various speakers. I really wanted to see Sandra Day O'Connor at Ga. State, but I RSVPed too late :-( Scholarships should be coming out anytime now, and I can't wait to find out the (hopefully) good news.

02-24: Still earily quiet. Scholarship offers from Emory and Ga. State should be comin any time now. The wait is KILLING me!!

03-12: Pretty much today was one of the best days of my life. I received a scholarship letter from Emory Law informing me that I was awarded 90,000 dollars over the course of 3 years if I decide to enroll there; this has been my dream...actually, come to think of it, actually attending Emory Law is beyond my dreams. So I really have no choice but to enroll there. I never thought Emory would have been a remote possibility because of fiscal constraints. Emory is a great school, but if I would have have to take out 60,000 (that is if I got the familiar 60,000 dollar scholarship they have given out the most in the past) plus another 30,000+ for living expenses and my previous undergraduate debt of...we will say around 15k, Emory would have been impossible for someone who wants to become a prosecutor. I told myself over and over that I loved Emory, I loved the prestige of it, the campus, the whole atmosphere, but that I could not attend unless they were able to offer 90,000 dollars out of the 120,000 or so total tuition. Sure enough, that exact amount was awarded to me. I feel lucky to be applying the same year they have given out the most they have ever given, and I also am very excited that I scored a 166 on the LSAT, because apparently Emory is trying very hard to attract this range of applicants. This must be fate. People like me aren't supposed to do things like this. The whole process being ended so abruptly yet so beautifully has made me become very reflective since it happened. I can not believe that 5 years ago I was gettin in trouble all the time with the law and simply not giving a..well you know the words. At one point in my life, I really did not care at all about what I was going to do with the rest of my life or what happened to me. I lived from day to day, making stupidly terrible life decisions and screwing up anything I touched. God, and I just got a letter in the mail the Emory freakin law school is giving me 90,000 dollars to go to law school. Me now and that person I was before could not be any more polar opposites. I told a couple buddies I used to hang with back in the day when I was at my worst, and they were just floored that the piece of crap person that they knew before had transformed and gone from the bottom to the top(Emory is top enough for me ;-)) I can't get over the fact that Emory is shelling out so much dough right now and that somehow it is the year I applied. Its just downright fate for me. I was pretty much expecting to get 60,000 from Emory, but having to turn it down and go to Georgia State for affordability. Don't get me wrong, I love Georgia State, but the opportunity to go to Emory Law for State Law prices is the opportunity of a lifetime. Plus, it is pretty much impossible to lose the Emory Scholarship as well, so that makes it even sweeter. I guess I am kind of rambling, but I guess I should because this will probably be the last substantive post I will make on my LSN account. This journey to law school has been a long one. I guess it was around last March or April that I first took the free Kaplan timed LSAT and scored a 151. Boy, that seems so long ago. From the part-time job that studying for the LSAT really was, to the killer 3 week wait for the scores, to the elation of receiving a score that I feel was a good score that I truly earned, to the volumes of application paperwork (computer documents I guess), to the even more waiting that was done while expecting acceptances, to the first acceptance (W&L - I remember the joy that the email you wrote me saying I was accepted to a T-25 schools right off the bat! - that felt incredible), to the even more waiting, to the completely unexpected call in December from Dean Cadray at Emory saying I was accepted, to the painful waiting until even more acceptances came, to the MORE waiting for important scholarships to come out, to now - now I don't have to worry about this stuff any more....it has been one hell of a rollercoaster. I would have never thought I would have gotten so dedicated and borderline compulsive about the law school admissions process. This has been one crazy year, and I would like to thank all of you on here for riding along this crazy experience with me. Emory Law, here I come, and the rest of you, best of luck with your upcoming tough decisions. I support you fully. Thank you once again.

03-14: ATTENTION ALL THOSE WHO HAVE DECIDED ON EMORY AS YOUR SCHOOL CHOICE AND YOU WILL BE ATTENDING THERE: There is the Emory School of Law Class of 2011 on facebook, so join up!

Same schools
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey, I'm hoping for a 164 at least, so we might have very similar numbers and schools. Good luck this cycle. I'm adding you to my watchlist. It makes me feel a little stalker-ish though, lol. So I guess I feel the need to disclose it.

Yay!
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations! Definitely will be rooting for you this cycle. I have the feeling we'll both be pretty happy.

:)
Sunday, March 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

hi G, thanks for the note. I'll be watching your cycle. Best of luck to you!

#1 choice...?
Sunday, March 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

I don't know what my #1 is yet. I have to visit the schools to get a feel for them before I commit my life and money.

Good luck:
Saturday, June 16 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hmmmz, you should consider more schools in the 20-50 range, since you're a lock at some of em and might be limiting your options man. Best of luck to you though.

Fee waivers
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on all of those fee waivers! I'd love to have Vanderbilt and Alabama, but I guess my multiple LSAT's locked me out. You expect more fee waivers after the law school forum? Should we just ask for them or do they take names?

I'm jealous
Friday, October 26 2007 at 08:00 PM

Nice work on all those fee waivers. I just blew way too much money on submitting my apps, and I'd really like to apply to a couple other schools just in case. Good luck this cycle, we have similar numbers.

hi
Friday, October 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

thanks for your encouraging words in my base. Good luck for you too. As an international student I am not quite clear how to get fee waivers. Would be appreciate if you could share some experiences on it. Thanks~

thanks!
Monday, August 06 2007 at 08:00 PM

right back at ya ;)

thx!
Wednesday, May 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

thanks for the well wishes... we do have really similar #s so good luck!

emory
Wednesday, October 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

hey man, how's it going. I'm interested in your opinions of Emory--how were the facilities? nice folks? I guess you're a native Georgian, so you really like the employment prospects; I wish there was a T25 in my state (I've got to settle for one of the rollin' 36s if I want to stay at home). anyway, let me know what you thought; Emory is on my list!

Vandy
Wednesday, October 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

I expect a WL there, too. Glad to hear a positive review of Emory; maybe I should move it up my list. T25 sounds pretty fancy, too.

Thanks for the luck
Tuesday, July 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

I am going to need every bit of luck if I am going to get into michigan or duke. But hell the apps were free so I just started slangin 'em. I figure someone might want a lowly physics major. Good Luck to you.

Thanks G!
Sunday, March 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

looks like your starting to go complete!

Thanks
Friday, August 31 2007 at 08:00 PM

We'll see what happens with Cornell, I hope I neither of us get waitlisted, but its better than a ding i guess. Good luck to you too.

Georgia
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

Looks like you're getting a lot of completes now too. Has Georgia requested your LSAC report? They haven't even requested mine yet.

ATL
Wednesday, October 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

yeah I went complete 11-9; got an e-mail. had to send in the signed cert letter with the check, that was the only wrinkle they had. anyway, the e-mail says they begin app review in mid-December, and decisions begin in mid-January, so you've got some time to sort things out.

You too!
Tuesday, March 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the well wishes. Yeah I had a rough ride my first few credits, then moved/transfered and was at the top of my class. However, schools have been VERY positive about having a huge turn around like that, and they have all said they put more weight on the later years in this situation. Good luck this cycle!

LSAT
Sunday, July 22 2007 at 08:00 PM

None of us are ever happy with our LSAT scores, are we? I wanted a 170! It's ok, though. Thanks for the good luck, I'll send some back to you. 16 schools, huh? You're sure to have quite a few tough decisions at the end of this cycle.

good luck g
Wednesday, October 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

ridin the paranoid train, huh? I suppose I ought to as well. and yeah man, we'll have ample time to kick it on the Vandy WL. talk to you then! and good luck to you, man.

really?
Sunday, March 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

a little paranoid? bit much perhaps ;) ?

Wow
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

You've blocked everyting from view my brother... drop me a hint as to whats your top choice?

Agreed
Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 07:00 PM

I actually just thought of the same thing. Congrats on UGA review... may we get in quickly!

OSU
Friday, October 26 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, under status it still just says 'Decision.' It actually went to decision about 4 days before my acceptance phone-call.

uga
Friday, March 02 2007 at 07:00 PM

hmm must have been 2-3 wks ... you also a ga native/ think we'll sneak into bcs?

Actually
Tuesday, March 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

I deferred at Rutgers last cycle... only 1 acceptance this cycle so far. They have started accepting people who applied after me at my top choice.. so we will see how that goes. How are things going for you? It's hard to tell with your apps hidden. :)

Hey
Sunday, July 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! Good luck to you, too. I would put you on my watch list except there's nothing to watch. :) How come you're hiding your apps? Just curious.

ga/ uga
Friday, March 02 2007 at 07:00 PM

re kennesaw i went grade 1-12 in cobb co public schools. but doubt i'd withdraw from uga -- some t14 i would pay full price for but if i don't land any scholarships or bigger acceptances athens is still possible. you trying to stay local?

Thanks
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

So still no acceptances for you? That's surprising. Or are you just holding out on us? :P

Acceptances
Tuesday, March 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

Schools seem to be taking their time. A lot of my schools don't sent anything out until after the new year. I am really trying to minimize cost for law school and am crossing my fingers for at least 1 of 3 state schools. No word from them yet. Less than 100K debt will make the years after graduation seem less bleak.

thanks
Tuesday, June 20 2006 at 08:00 PM

I'm sure you'll do great as well, even though I have no idea what your numbers are.

TITLE REQUIRED
Friday, October 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

hey man, I remember we have similar numbers but how come your files are hidden now? Anyway, all the best to your wishes.

helllll yes
Wednesday, October 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

awesome dude! that's a pretty badass acceptance, man.

Hey brother...
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

The applications are back up again! Congrats on W&L man, you are going to rock this cycle! I see Vandy in your near future.

Thanks!
Sunday, September 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats to you too!! Yeah 166ers!! Good luck on the rest of your cycle!

Thanks man :)
Saturday, June 16 2007 at 08:00 PM

Appreciate the well wishes, and congratulations on W&L as well. It's a good start I guess, but I'm sad that I'm likely getting deferred at Michigan, but oh well. I was really surprised when I got $ from Illinois, especially with how much I got, but meh. Let's hope that we both keep it up and get some sweet acceptances :).

Congrats!
Wednesday, October 31 2007 at 08:00 PM

I bet you're happy to see that acceptance...you can breathe easier now! Good luck with the rest of your apps.

$
Saturday, June 16 2007 at 08:00 PM

Well, the $ is a bit misleading since - it's $25k/yr, $75k total. However yeah, it's pretty sweet. I also emailed you, fwiw.

Awesome!
Wednesday, October 31 2007 at 08:00 PM

I bet you're relieved! Yeah, this cycle is going extremely well for me compared to last time I applied. The LSAT boost really helped me.

Wow
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on W&L. That's a great first acceptance. I'm sure they'll start rolling in soon (even if Georgia is taking forever.)

w&l
Friday, March 02 2007 at 07:00 PM

aye dood nice hit. stay hydrated.

Thanks!
Tuesday, October 16 2007 at 08:00 PM

I wish you luck too! :)

Hey
Saturday, April 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

You're off to a good start too! Good luck, man.

Emory
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

I am very excited about the way this cycle is going! I honestly didn't think I would hear from any more schools until January. Congratulations! Now we just have to wait to hear about scholarship.

Emory
Wednesday, October 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

look at big ballin' clement, dude is rolling with an Emory admit. that's awesome, bro. congrats, big.

Congrats
Thursday, July 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

to you too...still waiting for my Dean's Cert to make it to W&L.

Thanks!
Friday, July 06 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the LSD message(s)! And no worries : ) And congrats to you too, on Emory!! We're applying to a lot of the same schools - best of luck with the rest of your cycle!! You're off to an awesome start w/W&L and Emory!

We're almost identical
Monday, December 17 2007 at 07:00 PM

I'm keeping an eye on you buddy - we're almost identical! Congrats on Emory!

you too!
Sunday, March 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

looks like you're getting some serious LSN love too. congrats again on the emory admit, that's awesome!

W&L, IUIC, AND Emory!
Wednesday, November 29 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats!

Emory
Monday, August 13 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Emory! Atlanta is up there as one of my top choices for after law school. Congrats on Illinois too.

well...
Tuesday, June 20 2006 at 08:00 PM

I keep dead kittens in my freezer. I think they found out...

Thanks!
Sunday, October 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the note. You got some jack as UIUC today I see as well -- good work. :) Which is your favorite of the 3 places accepteed so far?

Congrats man
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Havent checked LSN much lately and just saw you got two more great choices. If you go to Atlanta and root for the Braves there will be war with me though (Mets fan) :)

Thanks!
Monday, October 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

And congrats to you on Emory!!! That's awesome - its my first choice, though I doubt I get in. I am copying and pasting the portion about my decision from the GSU status checker below. Requested Enrollment Date: Fall Semester 2008 Application Type: Graduate (GSU) Application Status: Decision Made Decision: Accepted Degree: Juris Doctor College: College of Law Major: LAW

dude!
Wednesday, October 03 2007 at 08:00 PM

GPA boost?! that's awesome, man. and it should definitely help you. congratulations!!

UGA
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey, thanks for the info. I'll be honest, I hope they're holding out on kind of high LSAT in-staters because of scholarships. It's the only thing I can think of since they've admitted a 170+ instater and lots of 160's out of staters. It just seems to me they'd feel pressure from Emory and Alabama to go ahead and let us in.

Hey Thanks!
Tuesday, November 13 2007 at 07:00 PM

I'm pullin for you too, and it looks like you aren't doing too shabby! I hope to hear from W&L next, but it took the Dean so long to get the certification in I just went complete their a few days ago. What are your personal rankings for where you want to go?

Congrats!
Monday, October 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

And that is pretty weird, did the letter come to your campus or permanent address?

thanks

Thanks fellow 166'er. No I'm technically not a URM, but law schools love to put me under their "students of color" statistic right? Did you get your Illinois scholarship along with your decision or separately? I just applied to Illinois and Loyola last week, whereas the rest I sent in my app in early November. I wonder there is still scholarship money left at Illinois.

nice

I know, right? I feel like I'm really tempting fate. But I have an acceptance in hand that I love (OSU), so I think I'm in good shape no matter what happens. Am not, however, excited to return to preptests...

Thanks!
Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thanks and congrats on all your acceptances! Did you go to GSU for undergrad?

GSU
Thursday, February 01 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on GSU! I'm hoping for them or FSU (UGA is a long shot:-(). I noticed on your profile you exceeded your 127 maximum for school. I did too! I just kept finding classes I wanted to take!

You talked me into it.
Tuesday, March 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

I just put in my app to GSU.

AMAZED!
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

I am amazed that you were rejected from Moritz Law! It makes me seriously question my chances there as my numbers are lower than yours are! I guess I can only hope for the best and hope your predictions are right! Good luck on the rest - you have some awesome acceptances under your belt already!

Emory

I know! It feels great to know that I am in someplace that I could definitely see myself going.

OSU

dude. what the fuck? that's obviously total, complete yield protection. they don't think a Georgia boy would come to Ohio. shit, man, I'm sorry.

Sunday, July 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats to you too! When is the first ASW? And sorry to change subject, but are you a little perplexed about Wake? I sent mine around the same time you did, and have heard nothing...

OSU
Thursday, July 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

haha did you truthfully answer the question on your app asking where else you were applying or something?

OSU you must be joking
Monday, November 05 2007 at 07:00 PM

What are they thinking? Good job on your acceptances so far. 3 top 25's that is awesome. Do you have a preference?

OSU
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

Aren't you glad that wasn't your first decision? That would have sucked. At least you know it's not at all indicative of the rest of your cycle.

UGA
Monday, November 05 2007 at 07:00 PM

I wouldn't worry about it to much, you will surely get in. I can't really figure out their timing on decisions. They offered me the tution equalization scholarship. I am really excited about it but like you I am going to wait and see what other schools have to say. Good Luck on the rest of your cycle!

Yup
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

166ers are having great cycles!

Submit dates
Tuesday, May 15 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yup, took the Dec. LSAT. Hope the submit dates won't hurt me. Good luck!

Congrats!

Madison is aboslutely awesome. I thought I knew what a great college town was until I was there for homecoming/halloween one year. Granted, it never snowed the entire time I lived in Wisconsin. Hey, that Michigan rejection just says you didn't underestimate yourself. You'll never wonder "what if..." And I'm glad to hear you emailed UGA. Maybe it'll speed things along for you.

Yikes
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

There are others who say Vandy went to decision for them on 1/15 too. Not me. I think it's waitlists, and they're holding off on rejecting others (me, lol.) Who knows though, maybe you've been accepted already. UGA never emailed me back either. Until they admit the majority on LSN though, I think you're best bet is to assume their deciding scholarships and you're being considered. Good luck! I still haven't received my letter from them yet.

Vandy
Tuesday, November 13 2007 at 07:00 PM

Has your decision been mailed from Vandy yet? Mine was on the 15th, and me freaking out would be an understatement.

UGA
Friday, October 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

Sorry about UGA. I'm pretty pissed too but my numbers are lower. Best of luck to you off of the waitlist. I'm staying on as well but they have really gone down in my mind due to their actions today.

Wow
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

I can't effing believe UGA waitlisted you. Your criminal record and poor academic performance was years ago, right? Good luck with the LOCI. Congrats on the Vandy waitlist. I think I'm expecting a ding there now that they've sent out waitlists to most. I just wish they'd get it over with, lol.

Hey Twin

Has your decision been mailed from UVA yet? Mine was apparently mailed out yesterday...

You're a fellow member :) Not sure if fellow members of honor societies are as close as brothers in a fraternity, but either way, I'm pulling for you more than ever now :)

Vandy Waitlist
Thursday, July 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

Good luck on there. It was a tough cycle to be a 166 :-/

Congrats!
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

That's great news from W&L! Congratulations.

Long wait
Wednesday, November 29 2006 at 07:00 PM

Any news from W&M yet? They sure seem to be taking their time with both of us while they accept later applicants in :-`,

UGA
Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

What happened with UGA? What did they do to you?

Georgia
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

That was an interesting experience you had with Georgia. I don't blame you for withdrawing though. Which schools are at the top of your list?

Emory
Tuesday, January 15 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks dude, I'm def interested in going there. Still waiting on USC and the infamous Vandy waitlist. Sorry about UGA, that story is kinda hilarious (no offense). Prolly better though, Emory is by far better in every way.

Thanks!
Saturday, January 12 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats to you as well! Best of luck in the future :)

nice work playa - where you leaning these days?

Congrats
Tuesday, January 15 2008 at 07:00 PM

Ya to bad Emory isnt being at all generous with their scholarship money. I am probably going to end up there as well. Going to ASW at ND only bc ive seen Emory 3 or 4 times already and want to be sure ND isnt where I want to be. Again congrats, Emory is soo $.

Emory
Thursday, February 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, I'm thinking about it. I'm visiting on Monday, so I'll really know something then. Congrats on getting the big money...you sure sound fired up!

emory visit
Wednesday, October 24 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your decision! I followed the Emory thread on LSD and was hoping it would work out for you. Emory is in my top 2 now, and I'll most likely visit during ASD. I've never been to Atlanta before, but hopefully I'll like the school and city as much as you do. Let me know if you have any advice on what to see/look for.

Emory
Friday, July 06 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thank you, and congrats to you to - on the scholarship and on your decision to attend Emory!! Such an amazing opportunity! The scholarship was a complete shock to me, and definitely bumped Emory way up on my list (esp since GW - my first choice - has offered zilch). I'm really impressed by Emory, but I'm worried about moving so far away. Plus, I know I want to practice in DC...and I'm still on the fence about whether or not staying in DC (but having to take out massive loans) would be better in the long run. I'm definitely considering attending ASW, but I want to see how my visit next week to W&L goes first before I book plane tickets. But...the Emory scholarship will be extremely difficult to pass up...amazing school, ability to graduate with minimal debt...I've never been to Atlanta, but have a feeling I would love it there.

Thanks
Thursday, December 20 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hey thanks and congrats to you as well! If you are from Georgia, Emory is definitely the place to be. The scholarship they offered is really generous, but I think I am going to stay on the west coast and go to UCLA. Have fun at the ASW!

Congratulations

Interesting Cycle for sure. But that is a great end result. Emory is a fantastic school and for that price an absolute steal. Through reading your lengthy ordeal I feel that we are similar in the way we think and approach this difficult decision. It is refreshing to see someone else feel blown away with oppurtunities being presented to them whether they be acceptances or scholarships. I feel to often the people on these websites take them for granted or simply are to arrogant to realize how fortunate they are. I am fairly close to making a similar decision of accepting a full scholarship at a school that was honestly a dream school to me. I could not feel more fortunate or appreciative and is nice to see someone else feels the same way.

Wake
Monday, November 05 2007 at 07:00 PM

I'm 90 percent sure I will be at Wake Forest. I was offered a Full Scholarship and I think that is just too much to turn down. I also was blown away when I visited. I am getting more and more pumped the closer it gets. People complain about the 166 being in "no mans land" as far as schools, but I am pretty happy where has gotten me. Congrats once again about Emory, and good luck!

see you this fall
Monday, May 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

thanks for your comment, it looks like I'll be joining you at Emory in the fall!!! I loved the school after visiting and the money certainly didn't hurt

Emory and LSN
Sunday, October 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

I enjoyed reading your LSN log (so much of what you wrote resonated) and wanted to wish you luck on your journey!
