Extra Curricular Information

Some of my info is accurate, some is not. All Additional Info is true. At the end of my cycle, I will update more on what I did and what seemed to work and such.

Additional info & updates

Note: I did not fill out GW's financial form "Profile" which might explain why I wasn ot offered any scholarship/grant assistance.

Waivers from amazing schools:
Columbia, Michigan, Virginia, Duke, UCLA, Northwestern, Cornell, Minnesota, Notre Dame, Washington University in St. Louis, U of Indiana-Bloomington

Waivers from other schools:
Pepperdine, Cleveland-Marshall, Oklahoma City, Washburn, Temple, Baylor, St. Thomas-Minn, University of Pacific. Drexel, Rutgers, Cooley, Miami, Alabama, Dayton, Chicago Kent, Charlotte, Penn State, Mississippi, Regent, Lewis & Clark, Detroit-Mercy, U of Buffalo, Case Western

I may have missed a small handful, but this is certainly the majority of them. I am not special in any freaking way, so it is exclusively because of my LSAT.

12/28/07: The cycle begins or does it?

02/12/08: Duke waitlists me. I was priority track. Ouch. Fine... whatever, I didn't even LIKE you! We'd never work, the sparks between us are over... we can't be just friends. Goodbye forever Duke.

02/14/08: GW accepts me. Yay! Great news!

02/22/08: Georgetown acceptance! Creamy envelope, definitely their "classy" stationary for those who worry :)

02/28/08: Northwestern give me the nod via E-mail! Other goodies to come.

03/05/08: Went to decision at Vanderbilt

03/11/08: Ok big package from Vanderbilt is sitting in my leasing office of apartment, and damn said office closed down early yesterday not allowing me to go get it. GR! (I THINK I'm in though, as who sends big waitlist/reject materials." SURPRISE! You're not in :(" That would be messed up.

03/12/08: I'm in baby. In at Vanderbilt. Nice! There has been quite a collection of good news, I hope my last two schools are as kind.

03/17/08: Vanderbilt scholarship. 60K in Merit, 15K in need. Wow. That's awesome.

03/21/08: Today, UPenn decided that I was not to be accepted. I was given my first rejection today. That's ok, it's good to receive a little tough news every now and again.

04/09/08: Georgetown makes me feel like they really love me. I like that.

We've been playing email tag for the best month. Basically I keep the dean when I'm available to talk (as she requested), she says she'll call, and then she doesn't. Makes one feel rather unloved, to say the least...

oops

I obviously didn't read the comment before I posted. It should say the past month, not the best month. Also, I keep emailing the dean. Sorry.
