Extra Curricular Information


Additional info & updates

2-3-06 I got my acceptance letter from Willamette today! They offered me a $20,000 renewable scholarship. I don't know if I can pass that up.

2-15-06 I visited Utah today and had a tour of the school and library. I was told that the applicant pool is small this year. I hope that is a good thing for me.

I also received an invitation to a reception for prospective law students in Salt Lake from Willamette.

2-27-06 Rejection from UW in a small white envelope. I totally expected this one. I'm just happy to hear any news at this point.

3-1-06 Missed a call from Dean Aguilar, so I'm assuming that means I'm accepted.

3-2-06 Spoke with Dean Aguilar. Its official. I'm in!

3-10-06- L&C defferal letter arrived. I'm kind of surprised.

3-27-06 Wait list email from BYU.

3-30-06 Online status check at Seattle says their decision has been mailed! I hope it's good news.

3-31-06- I received an email invitation for Admitted Students Day at University of Oregon. They haven't sent me an acceptance letter yet, so I'll call them on Monday to verify.

4-03-06- Large acceptance envelope from Seattle with a $5,000 scholarship!

4-4-06 Its official! I was accepted at Oregon!

4-12-06 I just got back from visiting Utah and Willamette this weekend. I'm so glad I made the trip because it really helped me make up my mind. Willamette's campus was beautiful and I love Oregon, but Utah is a better fit for me. I think I will have better opportunities there, we will be able to stay in our house, and my husband can keep his current job. I can't wait to start!

In: Seattle with money, Lewis and Clark, Oregon, Utah Out: Washington Deferred/Waitlist: BYU I think you should pass up Willamette. Especially since you will get into the U of U and the tuition is just as cheap with residency as Willamette's is with a scholarship.

I haven't visited Salem yet, but my boyfriend and I are probably going to head over there in March during my Spring Break. We're both pretty much planning on moving there, since I don't think I can pass up that much money! Let me know how your visit goes, and best of luck with your other schools!

don't worry too much

You'll probably get in to Utah. My guess is that I got rejected because a) I indicated a desire to pursue a career in academia, and b) I'm likely to get into some higher-ranked schools (and already have), because of my LSAT and advanced degrees. In other words, the admissions people at Utah could probably tell that Utah was not going to be my first choice, and that I probably wasn't going to go there -- and maybe they don't like the idea of being a "safety net" school for applicants like me. Anyway, congrats on Willamette -- and I think you'll have a good shot at L&C and UO, too. It might not be worth leaving UT for Willamette, but if you can get into L&C or UO, you should definitely go. Oregon is SWEET. (I grew up there.) Oh, and if you want to end up practicing in the NW, then even Willamette might be better than staying at BYU or the U. Oregon really prefers its homegrown attorneys.

My wife's from Tigard! Email me -- it'd be funny if they know each other....

Hi There! I saw your request for comments about Salem/Willamette. My boyfriend is from there and I've spent quite a bit of time in the area. Bascially, Salem has a small town feel and is pretty boring. I received a smiliar-size scholarship from Willamette as you and am still considering going there. The costs of living there would be really cheap and I would be really bored with the town, so I think I'd be a good law student as a result. I don't want to sound too gloomy about it, but wanted you to know what it's like. At least it's only 45 minutes from Portland, which is a GREAT city, and just a couple hours from beautiful mountains and the famous Oregon Coast. Congrats on all of your acceptances!

I told you you'd still have a good shot at Utah! Good job! Now you have to decide..."should I stay or should I go"...

Utah Visit

I did go to the March 9th Event. It was good. The building is pretty nasty, but the faculty seems top notch. The things I like most are the faculty, small class size, and location. I have several friends that go there right now who confirm that the facilities suck, and that the administration doesn't give a damn about any problems you have. But they all seem to be really excited about the new dean. Tell me what you think when you visit!

I just got back from Salem today, and thought I'd post my opinions now before I forget. First, I'm 99% sure I'll be at Willamette in the fall. Everyone I talked to at the school was really nice and seemed interested in making sure that I saw everything and had all my questions answered. As for Salem, there are certainly parts of the city which are better than others, but the area around the university also includes the state capital and downtown and is pretty nice. It's not a HUGE city by any stretch, but it is pretty large and there seems to be plenty to do. E-mail me if you want more information or some pictures that I took while there.

Sorry about the waitlist, but that of course means there is more hope. If you don't get into BYU, are you still thinking of Utah? I'm trying to decide between there and tech. Tech b/c of the scholarship. However I love Utah and also have family up there.

Friday, September 30 2005 at 08:00 PM

I got the same e-mail from Oregon. Hopefully we'll both get something official in the mail Saturday or Monday!

Thursday, January 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

What's your leaning on Utah? I'm curious what kind of feedback you've gotten about them from others.

Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

I see that you are attending Utah, was it this weekend that solidified your decision?

Friday, December 16 2005 at 07:00 PM

I'm glad to see you are attending Utah, that makes two of us :)
