10/30/2008: Received acceptance letter from NCCU. It came in a thick envelope. I was accepted in the day and evening program. You have to fill out a form to be considered for scholarships. Seat deposit due April 1, 2009.

11/28/08: Received acceptance letter from Florida Coastal dated 11/24/08. They offered me a $7,000 scholarship because of my lsat and gpa. I doubt I will choose this school as 7,000 per academic year is not enough to offset to 30k tuition. The acceptance letter came in a large package with a dvd. It came at the same time as a letter letting me know that they had requested my lsdas report. Kind of odd that an acceptance was granted at the same time my report was either requested or completed...

1/15/2009: My file is currently under review at Campbell, which is my reach school and also my #1 choice! I hope it goes well, but I am nervous because my lsat score is below their 25th percentile by three (3) points!!

1/29/09: My status at Campbell has changed to "Hold for further review" I'm just thanking my lucky stars for not getting a rejection. From what I hear a hold is better than waitlist because waitlist means the class is full.

2/6/09: Still on hold at Campbell, but I am hoping that people will start withdrawing their acceptances so that I can get accepted... I'm also hoping for an interview because that is usually a good sign.

2/26/09: My status has changed to "Under Review" again...I am so nervous because Campbell is my #1 choice! I am scheduled to visit the school tomorrow, so hopefully this is all happening at the right time!

2/27/09: Visited Campbell...absolutely loved it! I felt right at home with the students and staff. Met with the Asst. Dean of Admissions and he informed me that I should have a decision in a week!!

3/4/09: I was notified via status checker that I have been accepted into the PBAP. I was a little nervous about this at first, but I have decided to do it! If anyone else is accepted into PBAP and will be attending, let me know!

I started blogging about my law school experience. I hope it will be a reference for future law students. Check it out: www.legallyblonde1L.blogspot.com

7/18/09: Just found out today that I was accepted at Campbell after completing the PBAP program. It was incredibly tough and competitive, but I am very excited to start in the fall with the knowledge that I have gained!

Hey, I just wanted to wish you the best of luck in your applications. Don't fret about the 145 LSAT. There is hope out there for people like us who suck at standardized tests... Cheers.

I had no idea NCCU did ED. One of my top choices, and yours too I imagine. Good luck and tell me how it goes. Not interested in Elon?

Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey there! Yea it was a bummer...but I have others to look forward to! I found out through the status checker. The scary thing is my file went complete only 7 days before they made a decision! You have a great GPA...I am sure you will be fine. Congrats on your acceptances so far!

Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

I was actually considering doing the same thing depending on what happens. I still havent heard from a lot of schools so I am trying to be patient. But if I dont get in somewhere, I plan on retaking the LSAT in June or October and applying next cycle. If really want to do employment law and I will wait ANOTHER year if i have to. Congrats on hitting that 150 mark! That is a great accomplishment!

Hey! I checked my online status this morning, and it had changed from "under review" to "admit" - hope that helps! Best of luck!

Sunday, December 07 2008 at 07:00 PM

I see you put acceptance from NCCU for 6 days ago but as accepted a couple months ago. How long did it take to hear from them? Good luck on the rest of your cycle. It looks like it is going very well for you so far. =)

I'm considering Charlotte because of the location. My fiance and I are trying to find somewhere we can both go for our next degrees and UNC-Charlotte is one of the few schools that offers what he wants. Charlotte only has provisional acceptance at this point, which does make me wary, especially since their program would put me in some serious debt. NCCU says they'll have an answer 6-8 weeks from when my application went complete. What's your status at Campbell? Mine just changed today to "Hold for further review."

GSU

Hey! Are you in review by committee yet at GState?

GSU
Friday, October 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

was your friend on LSN last year?

GSU
Friday, October 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

yeah i was waitlisted last year too... :(

Sunday, February 08 2009 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! Yes i am DEF considering Campbell. Campbell has a very strong reputation in North Carolina, and it is relatively small compared to other schools. Which is more like my undergrad, which i love! Plus Raleigh Rocks. I would LOVE to get into GSU too though. I am a GA res. so it would be a great $$ saver. But, GOOD LUCK on Campbell!

My account says nothing about a hold on it. Lord only knows whats taking it, but i'm ready to just withdraw. Good luck though

Campbell
Sunday, December 07 2008 at 07:00 PM

Mine still says hold for further review. Good luck on your interview tomorrow! =) Are you going to the new law campus? If so, please let me know what you think of it.

Campbell
Wednesday, December 10 2008 at 07:00 PM

Yes, I am on hold at Campbell too. However, I did send them an email withdrawing my application, my family and I are moving to California. I hope one less person held for further review will help you! Good luck!

Campbell

Did they offer to wait list you too? Or is PBAP the only option? I guess you can also pay the seat deposit at your back up school, so that if PBAP doesn't work out, you aren't stuck. My Campbell status just changed to "Under Review" today, so I guess I might hear something soon too. Did your status change online to let you know the decision?

Congrats on Campbell...
Sunday, October 12 2008 at 08:00 PM

Yea it's really near the top of my list too...but like I said the risk really scares me haha....I would like to go and visit the school before I make a final decision though!

Campbell
Sunday, December 07 2008 at 07:00 PM

So, I finally heard back from Campbell. They decided to put me on their wait list. There's no mention about PBAP. I guess either enough people drop out that they give me a spot or they don't. At least that is not a rejection, right? =) I think that I am going to FL Coastal at this point.

Campbell

Yes, I was offered PBAP admission. Not to discourage you, but it is a 7 week course and then they only take the top 25% or so of that class in the fall. I don't want to move down there and then suddenly have to move back to PA because I didn't gain admission.

I decided to do the PBAP program, although I'm weary of that being a bad decision. I'm curious to see how many will end up enrolling in the program

Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

NOTHING! =/ The waiting is killing me! They promise to have all decisions out by May 1st...so I should hear something this week. It looks like they are waitlisting everyone this year! Congrats on Campbell! Great law school in NC!

PBAP
Wednesday, February 11 2009 at 07:00 PM

how's that PBAP program going...or how was the move if it hasn't begun yet?

Good luck!
Tuesday, June 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

Good luck with the PBAP! I read your blog and you seem like you will do well. I'll be at Campbell in the Fall and hoping to count you as a classmate. Please feel free to email me, I'd love to meet as many people as possible before school starts. All the best, Alex

Wow, sounds like you've been working hard. I'm starting my summer readings this week for my school, they think we have all the time in the world to read this summer. Keep me updated once school starts!
