Additional info & updates

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')

Hey it was good to hear from you. Thank you for the congratulations and good luck as you continue forward with the cycle. Keep in contact! :D

Saturday, October 30 2010 at 08:00 PM

I'm glad to have found a twin who sent their applications in earlier than I did! Gives me something to look forward to in the coming weeks. Do you have a first choice, or are you up in the air? Let's hope this turns out to be a bountiful cycle for the both of us :-)

Saturday, October 30 2010 at 08:00 PM

Had to comment on your waking up in the middle of the night and applying to Maryland. I did the majority of my applications at 6:30 in the morning, hungover. Maybe we're all losing it. Good luck!! :-)

Wednesday, November 17 2010 at 07:00 PM

No I didn't go anywhere near the ethical dilemma question. Seemed incredibly risky. I bet it could help if you really had something to write about. W&L has a big emphasis on their honor code and ethical behaviors. If you do apply now, they don't wait long for a decision, so you might be able to write one if wait listed.

Saturday, November 13 2010 at 07:00 PM

I loved Maine when I lived there, and now that I am living elsewhere, I REALLY love Maine :) I went to Scarborough High, graduated in '05. Hopefully we will hear back soon, I heard that the admissions dean said they usually start meeting the first Friday after Thanksgiving and they roll from there. Good luck with your cycle!

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Yeah getting my first acceptance has definitely helped to calm my nerves. It feels like schools just feed off of our anxiety via their status checkers. Anyways, thanks for the kind words and I will definitely be following your cycle as it looks like we have applied to a few of the same schools...good luck!

Thank You
Tuesday, May 11 2010 at 08:00 PM

My status checker for Denver never changed from ready for review, just got the emails this morning.

Thursday, November 04 2010 at 08:00 PM

Hey! No - my status stayed complete from oct 15 until the day i was accepted. GL!!

Saturday, November 13 2010 at 07:00 PM

Congrats! The school places really well in the state, I know I am going to be working there, so I think this ends my LS hunt; bust of luck to you!

Friday, May 28 2010 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the kind words! They sent me an email this morning saying my status checker has been updated, I checked it, and it said I was denied. And congrats on UMaine!

Friday, May 28 2010 at 08:00 PM

And no, I was never "in review" or anything. Just went straight from complete to the decision.

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

congrats about maine...the first acceptance feels great!

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

yeah I know, I couldn't believe I started filling out my Iowa app at 2 am lol...these late nights studying for finals give me wayyy too many chances to start worrying and applying to more schools

Thursday, December 02 2010 at 07:00 PM

I saw your comment on someone else's asking about northeastern - mine went straight from "Completed" to a "AccepteD" without any "in review". So if yours still doesn't say in review, it might not mean anything!

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

thats a scary thought! maybe our nerves would cancel each other out? lol

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

whoever accepts me becomes my favorite haha...i would say you should definitely apply to ohio because I am a current student at ohio state and I LOVE IT HERE!!! the only reason I am not applying here is because i would like to see what else the world has to offer but the time here has been unreal

one more app
Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

I am borderline on doing one more app...I have my wake forest app ready but I emailed them and am holding out for a fee waiver...I really want to send it in lol

Saturday, October 30 2010 at 08:00 PM

Feeling your pain in being passed up on that recent waive of acceptances. I see in your additional that you are 'under review' at American. Any chance you remember how long it took for you to go from complete to under review?

I'll be watching your cycle!
Sunday, October 17 2010 at 08:00 PM

Good luck!!!!

Early favorites
Sunday, October 17 2010 at 08:00 PM

We will both definitely end up at good schools that are right for us. Don't doubt it! I don't have a number 1 at the moment, but acceptances at UConn, Northeastern, and U San Fran and San Diego would be great. Any early favorites for you?

another app
Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

I applied to Wake today because its snowing so much here lol

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

its been sooo quiet lately from law schools...i really want to hear from one before the holidays (hopefully an awesome christmas present! lol)

Thursday, November 04 2010 at 08:00 PM

Thanks again! Yes, my status checker changed to 'decision made' (or something similar) on 12/21. Under mailings it also said decision mailed. Since I'm local I got it the next day. I had been in review since 11/16. Good luck!!!

Sunday, October 17 2010 at 08:00 PM

I can't believe we were both rejected at Northeastern today, especially you! If you really want a Boston option, why don't you apply to Suffolk? I think you might some money, and you could always transfer out after 1L if you were so inclined. Either way I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Monday, December 06 2010 at 07:00 PM

Wow! I am surprised with your numbers and inclination towards public interest you were rejected from Northeastern! It is one of my top choices and the waiting is killing me. None the less, you seem like you have a lot going for you so I'm sure you'll get some good offers in the next few months!

Thursday, November 04 2010 at 08:00 PM

checking up on you. WOW I am surprised at northeastern as well! Don't get discouraged, I think you've got a good shot at a number of the other schools you're applying to. You could always petition for fee waivers if you want to expand your options as well. Good luck!!

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Hey hows it going over here? When did you hear back from colorado? I am sure you will get off one of these waitlists

Hey back
Sunday, December 05 2010 at 07:00 PM

Thanks, actually I was pretty stoked on the waitlist at Wisconsin. With my numbers I was expecting a flat out rejection. At least this means theres still hope. I'm really waiting on my Denver decision; if I don't get into Utah or somewhere higher its probably my next choice. How about you?

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

sooooooooooooooo manyyyyyyyyyyyyyy waitlistsssssssssssssssssssssss :( this is getting freaking ridiculous! Sorry about American, did you write a why American essay? If not I would definitely write to them explaining why you want to go and I think you will be fine.

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

yeah i was trying to plan this trip to visit schools in nyc, dc, and then w& plan was to fly to nyc, take a train to dc, and then find out that there is NO WAY TO GET TO LEXINGTON! No train, no bus, and no airport within 1.5 hrs driving away :/ I may just have to do that phone interview with them

Monday, September 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks. It was by mail.

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

joined u on their waitlist...this is getting old though I guess with all these waitlists we are bound to get in off of one of these!

W&L Interview
Sunday, November 14 2010 at 07:00 PM

Nothing weird. I totally over prepared for the 1/2 hour with Brett Twitty. The guy is awesome. Really personable. He started by asking if I had any questions about the school, then asked why law? Says he gets a totally different answer from everyone who answers the question. It's not that I don't think W&L is a great school (it is), I just think that I am in a totally different place than 95% of the class. I'm married with young children and most of the students are right out of undergrad and still behaving as such. Nothing wrong with that, just not my cup of tea. In a really small town like Lexington, if that's the only game in town, it could be a rough three years for an old guy like me. Good luck to you! Email me if you want specifics...

Sunday, November 14 2010 at 07:00 PM

Nope. My email confirmation for my visit just said that I would meet with one of the admissions personnel. I guess that meant him, since the other Girl and I both met with him for about a half hour, one after the other. Best of luck!

Thursday, February 10 2011 at 07:00 PM

I can't believe you got rejected by Northeastern with your great scores. This site is ruining my morale ! Seeing everyone with much higher scores than me getting rejected is BRUTAL. At least you have some options and scholarships. I'm still chilling in REJECTLAND. hahaha. Best to you!

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

hey i havent been on here in awhile so I get to update even more waitlists! Also, congrats about OSU!!! I go there for undergrad and absolutely love it

Tuesday, January 25 2011 at 07:00 PM

Great idea about visiting W&L, I think that really helped my application. Good luck!

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

im not really sure if i am any closer to figuring out where i want to go...i interviewed with w&l but really really really want to go to gw. i guess if i had to decide right now i would say american? blah i cant decide lol

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Congrats and you shouldn't worry what other ppl say because that is awesome...buttttt since your not going you should put in a good word for me lol. Are you going to go visit W&L?

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Just read your post again and saw that you did visit...what did you think? I thought my interview went well but I told Twitty that I would need to see the school before I could ever decide

Tuesday, March 08 2011 at 07:00 PM

I would say let the admissions office know that it is your first choice and that you would love to go there. I think they are looking for people who really want to go, not just those who applied because it was free. Good luck!

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Looks like I am finally going to visit W&L in 2 excited!

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Every time I speak with someone or read a little bit more about W&L it shoots up my list. I am at the point where if I got offered a spot off the waitlist that I would go lol I am hoping that going there to visit will just solidify those feelings

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

add 2 more waitlists to bring my grand total to 12...12?!?! are you freaking kidding me?? lol i better get off at least some of these

home stretch
Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

yeah I can't believe we are getting down to that time to decide. I guess as of right now I will be going to American University but praying everyday I get in off one of these waitlists...sorry about W&M but I guess not liking it makes it easier lol good luck deciding where to go and keep me informed!

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

emory-waitlist, sarcastic shock

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Hey where r u thinking of depositing? Looks like for me its American + waiting on the GW waitlist

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

I actually really liked W&L, the campus and town were just beautiful and I am really pulling for you to get in there! However I fell in love with DC so I decided I want to study and work there.

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

GW in a heartbeat but that is probably the only school I would go to over American. I am about to send them my 2nd letter of continued interest and I have visited so I am trying to do whatever I can to get in lol

Wednesday, December 15 2010 at 07:00 PM

At the time, they were my first choice, and I told them so after a phone interview (I think it was the week before they did the re-waitlisting/denials for waitlisted applicants). Then they accepted me a few weeks later when I sent an updated LOCI about a publishing credit I received. However, after realizing how expensive it was at sticker, I decided to look elsewhere. Good luck with your decision!! I really hope you get in!

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Hey did you follow up on that WL email from W&L? Have u put ur deposit down anywhere? I put mine down at American while praying for GW. Even though I got that new offer from Kent I just could not see myself in Chicago

Scratch DC
Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Going to in off the wait list today!!

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! I am really excited now it is your turn to get some wait list love from these schools!!

Friday, October 29 2010 at 08:00 PM

Hey Lala...thanks for the congrats about W&L...I respectfully declined the hopefully you get it! I let them know the next day that I was committed to Maryland. I'm a Maryland resident, so I could not resist. Let me know how it have very solid numbers!

Sunday, January 02 2011 at 07:00 PM

Good luck with the Waitlist! I'm riding out a few waitlists too so I know how you feel. The University of Utah is a very good law school. I think you'll be happy at either institution.

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

I got in to GW today!! but I won't be able to go because of the cost :( Im pretty sad

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

I am going to wait for their official admissions package to come in to decide. I mean if they match it that may swing my vote but if there is no money I am guessing I will be up north :/ Any word from W&L yet? I think you will really enjoy Utah tho its beautiful there

2 things...
Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

1) ur comment about finding out about GW on TLS was only slightly stalkerish haha 2) u sound like u have some personal experience about those kind of relationships

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

hahaha...i dont think i can really respond to that ps-i agree tho with what you said, i check ur lsn page everytime i check my own because im intrigued with where u end up!

gw stuff
Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

u will be the first to know, well on here at least lol

wait list
Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

LOLI well I had a lot of chances I guess with all the wait lists I was on

Monday, July 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

also, I hear colorado and their law school are beautiful but they did not offer me enough $$ to overcome UMN and my undying love of GW haha
