Waiting is killing me!!
I woke up in the middle of the night the other night applied to Maryland for no good reason. I am losing it!
12/6 -- Accepted at U Maine via status checker. First Acceptance feels soo freaking good. Maine is kind of a saftey but it is my home state so it might make sense to go if I want to work there (which I think I do later in life at least....) soo we will see... not sure when I will hear about $ but yay. Maybe now I can stop being such a crazy person about all this waiting!
12/9 - Waitlisted at W&L. Even though it seems like everyone is being waitlisted... I am pretty happy about it. My numbers are kinda low for them so I know they actually read my app which is nice and gives me hope that other 'reach' schools will consider me too :)
12/10-- looks like wake forest and american accepted more people today... bummed I wasnt one of them... and the waiting continues.
12/17 -- Still feeling pretty shitty about the fact that I havent heard anything law schools. This could be a bad sign.... gah I was just so sure I would some news this week.
1/3 -- Rejected from Northeastern. :(. Really bummed about this one... since I thought I wouIld get in (I am public interest girl) and I really really wanted a Boston option. I am still just floored.... Starting to think I might have to do this again next year or the year after which just sucks :( I dont want to study for the LSAT ever again
1/14-- Rejected at Maryland... not surprized... sent that app in on a whim and didnt spend much time on it
---- Later - Starting to feel like I am in no mans land... no school really wants me and not too many schools are willing to reject me just yet. meh.
1/20 - Waitlist City... This sucks.
1/21- Accepted at Denver .. as much as I LOVE Colorado... I am ready for something new.... Do not think I would go here... fingers crossed at some other schools... although I feel like I might be the waitlist queen.... only time will tell.
1/24 --- Really bummed about the American waitlist... that became my top choice after last week... MERR. :(
1/28.... yes.... ANOTHER waitlist. It shouldnt be that shocking... but for some reason it is....
2/2 -- starting to feel like some of these schools lost my app or something. blah. lol
2/4- half tuition at maine.... well for the first year only but can be renewed each year with a 3.0 gpa. Since I am a maine resident it will only cost me $10,000 per year at maine.... tempting.... 30,000 total..... less than one year at my undergrad....
2/9 -- Accepted to Ohio State on my birthday. Feels good... but I dont think I really want to be in Ohio... Praying I get off one of those waitlists at this point.
Later that day waitlisted via status checker. ALL THESE WAITLIST ARE LAME. I am def. going out tonight to try to forget about all this blah-ness.
2/11 -- Survived the waitlist cut at W&L! excited to visit the school next week! :)
2/19- Sorry I have not updated in a bit. I was wiatlist at Bloomington early in the week via mail. I then took off on a road trip to visit 7 schools! crazy. It was really great... gives me a lot to think about moving forward. As of right now I am really trying to get off a few of those waitlists!! One or two in particular. But i was really excited to get the call that I was in at Utah. They said they woud send fin aid info this week... so fingers crossed!! This seems to have been a big law school news week.... hope everyone is keeping their spirits up!! The end is somewhat near!
3/4- Visited Utah today... it was really great.... it seems like a very underrated schoool... tons of clinic/externship opportuies, third lowest student/faculty ratio in the country and small class sizes. I could see myself there... but I am still not 100% sure. I it prob. in the lead for schools I have actually been accepted at... but I am still holding out that my 1 or 2 will pan out.... please accept me! I could be sold really on utah if they gave me some money... but I will not find that out until April.... blah... and so the cycle drags on.
3/14 - Withdrew from some of those waitlists. The more I thought about it the more it became clear where I really want to be. I think I will also be withdrawing from Ohio and Denver soon. I really really really want to go to W&L or Wake... but I guess I just have to wait and see which seems to be the story of my life. mer... :)
3/30 -- Wow. What a ride, right? I knew I was in for something when I signed up to apply for law school.... but I really had no idea... I do not think I could have. My cycle is far from over (I think), but is nice to see so many people making choices!! I am happy people seem to be playing fair (and responsible) and withdrawing from schools so people on the waitlist have a shot! I am stilly praying I get off the W&L or Wake Forest WL. I would do anything to go to either school, but esp. W&L. Knowing that some people are happy and making choices makes me happy! So congrats to all of you who have a solid plan for next year and are able to make summer plans. I cannot wait for that to happent to me!!
On another note I did attend Utahs ASD. The schools is great, I really love it. BUT I am afriad I won't have friends, since I will be 22 and just out of school. :( GAH. I have no idea what to do.
3/31 - wow.... I feel the opposite today as yesterday. I want this cycle to end in the worst way.Waitlisted at U Conn.... I am not even sure how to feel abou this. I want my good mood of yesterday back!!
July 5th- Crazy how time flies (kinda). I have been holding out so much hope (secretly) that I would get off the waitlist at W&L. The more i learn and think about Utah the more OK with it I am.... but I really would rather be in the east.... I think that is really what it comes down to for me. I mean I like utah (I went to college in CO), I have some friends in SCL area but I have always pictures myself spending my young adult years on the east... and it has proved to be a hard picture to let go of.... I want to want to go to Utah (if that makes sense) but I know in my heart W&L is my first choice.... crap. I know there is still time and I am willing/able to wait until the last minute but I want some closure.... it has been a long 7 months on this waitlist. GAHHH.
Words of wisdom or advice would be appreciated (unless it is 'retake')
