7-30-10 FIU RECONSIDERATION-REJECTED
WELL I GOT REJECTED AGAIN FROM FIU.
7-12-10 IN @ STU
Got a call from the Director of Admissions advising me I have been accepted. YEAH going to law school. I will be attending STU. I have also revised my #'s so they reflect my true #'s which were slighty fudged for identity reasons. I heard law school jump on these boards every now& then. Good luck with the rest of your cycles everyone.
7-1-10 Stu Summer conditional program
Finshed the Stu conditional program this past Saturday. Received an envelope today which said I was placed on hold since I didnt finish in the top 20%. I did however finish in the top 30%....out of 64 students, so not too bad. I will call the admission office tomorrow to see what # I am on the hold list. So thankful I have a shot at getting into the fall class of 2010. Please withdraw if you dont plan on attending Stu please!!!!!!!
I WILL BE ATTENDING STU, IF BY CHANCE I GET INTO FIU (STILL UNDER RE-CONSIDERATION) THEN FIU IT IS. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE.
2/21/09 Just took my first diagnostic yesterday and got a 136...gotta get that up by June if I want to be considered as a competitive candidate.
3/14/09 Just took another diagnostic and got a 143, maybe I'll be in the 150 range the next go around ;-) got until June to tighten up.
3/31/09 Took another diagnostic...142 but I bombed the games section, so although it was less than my previous score I know the 150's are not too far away now if I can just remain consistent on all portions of the test.
4/10/09 Got a call from Kaplan and was approved for a 35% discount...I was hoping for 50% off but $839 is a whole lot better than paying $1200-1300, so I caved in and will be taking the May class that ends the week before I take the LSAT on June 8th.
4/22/09 Paid my deposit for Kaplan today. Hoping to finally hit that 155-160 within the next month with the extra practice Ill get in with the course.
6/23/09 Wow, a little down about my first LSAT test but now that I have gotten my first attempt out of the way I think I can definitely do better on the Sept. test. Logic games...I will own you on my next go 'round!!!!!!!!!!! ;-)
7/22/09 Just submitted my app for Spring 2010 @ St. Thomas....my first official app so I am a little nervous.
7/28/09 Got a call from STU admissions inquiring about additional info. for my app. suprised to here anything this early but at least I know I am officially under review.
8/26/09 Checked with STU admissions and was told my app was complete and being reviewed by the committee.
8/27/09 well.....got my first denial letter from STU today postmarked 8/26/09 for the spring/Jan. 10 semester. Cant say I didnt expect it, but it still sucks ;-(. I will reapply for the Fall term after I get my Sept. 24th score back.
9/25/09 well...Im getting ready to turn in before I make my 2nd attempt at the LSAT tomorrow morning...Good luck to everyone....I also submitted my apps to Ave Maria & UM....Ill finish up the others over the wknd.
10/13/09 Got an email from Ave Marie today for more info and conf. my app was received.
10/21/09 Went complete today with Ave Maria...they are 1 hour west of where I live but its definitely worth a shot.
11/18/09 Re-applied to STU today for the Fall with a new targeted rec letter and a revised PS. Will also apply to Nova PT-fALL program within the next week.
11/26/09 FIU OPEN HOUSE
Open House was great faculty seemed great...students were very helpful and answered a lot of my questions...boy I hope I can get in ;-) Does anyone know if you get extra index points if you are an ALUM ;-) LOL, just wishful thinking ppl ;-).
I applied to Nova today and got a response a few hours later requesting a few things.
I also had a hiccup in my app where I have a FINANCIAL OBLIGATION for a non-degree granting institution where I attended a semester. The application stated that any outstanding financial obligation must be satisfied before the fall semester...has anyone run into this issue with Nova or other schools.. I also had the same thing happen at UM. All the other schools I applied to made no mention of this....assuming b/c it was not either of the schools I earned a degree from.
I also got an email from Ave today with the link to the online status checker and a msg that a decision should be made within 4-6 weeks. LET THE WAITING BEGIN!!!!!
12/6/09 IN AT STU !!!!! MAN IT FEELS GOOD! RECEIVED A SORTA' THICK ENVELOPE THIS SATURDAY STATING I WAS ADMITTED TO THE SUMMER CONDITIONAL...WILL DEFINITELY TAKE IT IF FIU OR AVE DONT COME THROUGH BY THE APRIL DEADLINE I HAVE BEEN GIVEN BY STU.
12/17 Submitted a diversity statement to supplement my FIU app.
12/21 FIU confirmed my diversity stmt was rcvd and my app is now with the committee. Has anyone else heard anything from FIU? I applied super early and Im hoping to hear something soon...fingers crossed.
1/11 FIU says I should have a decision by the end of next wk at the latest. AVE says I should have a decision by the end of this week....great to know that I may have some final answers in the coming days.
1/15 REJECTED AT FIU-OUCH!!!!NOT EVEN A WAITLIST...TOTALLY BUMMED.
2/5 FIU SUBMITTED MY RECONSIDERATION LETTER TO FIU FOR PT 2010 THEY SAY I SHOULD HEAR SMTG IN 30 DAYS. IF ANYONE HAS ANY INFO ON THE WHOLE RECONSIDERATION PROCESS PLEASE PM ME.
2/16 AVE MARIA WHAT THE HECK...MY STATUS CHECKER & ADMISSION HAVE TOLD ME MY FILE HAS BEEN WITH COMMITTEE SINCE EARLY JAN. HAS ANYONE ELSE EXPERIENCE LONGER THAN NORMAL WAIT TIMES FOR AVE.
