Additional info & updates

Took the LSAT today at southwestern. Wow.

Enrolled in the powerscore class starting in October in LA.

Horrible undergraduate GPA. Didn't have a clear vision until my senior year.

Currently in the investment industry.

USF just dropped of the top 100! Does that worry anyone?

I made the ulitimate bonehead move. I sent Southwestern my personal statement for McGeorge. Doh!!

Pretty good soft factors. 5 years out of school.

3/26 I'm really worried. I'm so late in the cycle with not the best numbers. I do not want to take the LSAT again!

4/2 Accepted to Golden Gate! Awesome. 15k a year if I maintain a 3.0.

4/10 Accepted to Penn State! Booya! I'm really excited about this one. They jumped 14 spots in the rankings this year. Buy low sell high.

4/14 Waitlisted at San Diego. I guess I can live with that.

4/16 Asked Chapman to withdraw my app. Don't really want to go there too much.

4/18 Got a small envelope from UOP. When I opened it up it was just a note telling me to be patient while they were going through apps. Whew. Dodged a bullet.

4/21 Dinged at DePaul. Boooooo! I did get in to St. Thomas though w/ 10k a year. Thank you!

4/24 I got punked by Santa Clara! Santa Clara!! Bastards. Santa Clara sucks anyways. Whah. I love Santa Clara, I can't lie. Not even waitlisted. It hurts a little. St. Thomas sent me a t-shirt. That's love.

4/25 Waitlisted at Southwestern. I sent the withdraw form in. Let me see, Penn State or southwestern? Uh, let me think...............

4/28 I was off to a hot start, and I'm cooling off quick. Waitlisted at Indiana.

5/1 I just realized I had mistakenly had St Thomas up, rather than University of St. Thomas -MN on my profile. Oops.

5/2 Emailed St. Thomas and they bumped up my scholarship by 5k. That helps. I'm on the fence. My word to others, don't wait this long to apply!

5/9 I'm going to go jump off a roof. I just got emailed, (which I requested), that I'm waitlisted at UOP. That hurts. I was looking for houses to buy in Sacramento, and planning the remainder of my life. I had fallen in love and my heart was broken. Applying to law school is a lot like dating.

5/12 Hey Lewis and Clark! What did I ever do to you! Thanks for sending me a fee waiver and then stabbing me in the back. Sons of bitches. I think I would have liked Portland too. Oh well.

5/13 I just got a call from Indy. I'm in!!!! The news is coming fast and furious!!! I'm so pumped. Indy is a great school.

5/14 Just emailed around noon today. I got into USF! Part time, so I can work and go to school. I want to practice in SF, so thats good. Like I mentioned above they dropped off the top 100 this year. I need to get to the bottom of that and figure out if it's worth going to Indiana or not. UOP come on! That would make my life much easier.

5/15 I really did not want to withdraw from Penn State. I would have liked to have more time to make a good decision. I also have to say I like St. Thomas. They seemed to really care about the admitted students, and wanted my feedback. Seems like a really good school.

5/21 Just got a call from Gonzaga. I'm in! I don't know about eastern Washington, but it may be a good choice.

5/22 Email from Indiana. $7,500 out of state scholarship! How can I not go here?! That offsets the first year out of state cost. When I am a resident, tuition will be even cheaper!

5/27 Snail mail today. Dinged at St. Johns, and got a scholarship offer from Gonzaga. I'm leaning towards indy now, unless UOP steps up.

5/29 Holy shit! I got into Loyola Law! A big LA booya! I think this is where I'm going to end up. I feel like I don't deserve it,, but I'm going to work extra hard. So pumped.

6/11 It's crunch time now. Unless UOP comes through for me, I'm a Loyola student. Can I live with LA?

6/17 I finally got the acceptance from UOP yesterday. Awesome! What to do. What to do.

Later that day......

So, I talked it over with my fiance, and I think I'm going to stick with Loyola. Such a high ranking, it's hard to justify letting that go, plus I don't have to move.

Cycle complete.

I've been studying since January for an average of 4 or 5 hours a week. You?

Wednesday, June 13 2007 at 08:00 PM

thanks, i've actually decided to retake the LSAT..hopefully with a significant increase my chances will be better with the schools i'm looking at. good luck with your studying.

Saturday, December 29 2007 at 07:00 PM

Good luck to you too. Yeah I'm just finishing up my undergrad. Good luck to you, hopefully you're work experience will help out.

Sunday, March 09 2008 at 08:00 PM

on Penn State.... I'm still waiting to hear, how did they notify you?

Thursday, January 17 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the encouragement. Yes, its been a rough cycle- started late and scores aren't the best. Congrats on your acceptances!!

Friday, October 05 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Penn State! Have you heard anything from St. Johns yet?

Saturday, April 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey First of all Congrats on all of your acceptances including Penn State! As for McGeorge I received a big white envelope via snail mail with a folder that had the letter and info about the school then two days later I received a seperate white envelope with Financial and Aid and the scholarship offer. Good Luck with the rest of your cycle!

Hmmm....IU Indy or Penn State....
Saturday, December 08 2007 at 07:00 PM

Penn State is definitely better than IU Indy. You should withdraw off of the IU Indy waitlist as soon as possible....wink wink

l and c
Monday, July 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

how were u notified by l and c? good luck

Saturday, December 08 2007 at 07:00 PM

it was a phone call? very nice. did you accept?

Saturday, December 08 2007 at 07:00 PM

Dude, if you're used to Cali cost of living, you'll be in financial heaven in Indy. Take whatever you have to bring in to keep a decent lifestyle on the west coast and cut it in half - that's what you'd need in the midwest to keep the same lifestyle.

on INDY LAW! Im heading there too in the fall, but just as an FYI you won\'t get in state tuition at all while you are there, Indiana\'s almost impossible to get residency! Just an FYI. It sucks for me too but I loved the school when I visited so im definetely going...... thats really what its all about! Best of luck to you!

Monday, February 25 2008 at 07:00 PM

thanks for the congrats on UOP. i pretty much died when i got waitlisted, and then died again when they accepted me. which is why i LOVED what you said about how this is like dating. IT TOTALLY IS. getting waitlisted is like having a guy say he\'s gonna put me on hold while he tries to find hotter girls...and then maaaaybe he\'ll get back to me. bastard. anyways. what i WANT to say is that you should defntly meet with Adam Barrett (dean of admissions). he loves people, he\'ll give you the benefit of the doubt, i applied even LATER than YOU. so if UOP is the number 1 place you want to go i say meet with him asap. i met with him this monday and got my acceptance package on wednesday. so do it. although, i see you got into loyola--way to GOOOO...i may have chosen loyola over UOP. so choose wisely. the ppl in sac are way cooler than la though haha. just more down to earth. wow. i talk alot

Monday, February 25 2008 at 07:00 PM

i just looked over your profile and you it looks like you ARE going to go to loyola. im slightly bummed haha. but good luck!

LA is smoggy
Saturday, December 08 2007 at 07:00 PM

congrats on loyola my friend... and yet another spot opens up at IUINDY....and yet another day my phone fails to ring....

Saturday, December 08 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the congrats! Right Back at you. Johnnie Cochran and Robert Shapiro are smiling down from above!
