Additional info & updates

Sent my seat deposit to Colorado. Keeping an eye on the waitlists. We shall see.

Thank you all for your words of encouragement and support. Best of luck to you in your future legal careers!!

12 Apr - WL'ed at UNC. I guess that's it...

06 Apr - WL'ed at WUSTL. Cool. Let's see where this goes...

30 Mar - Withdrew from BU, Emory, W&M, W&L, and Wake. So sad.

26 Mar - Visited W&M. Met a lot of cool people including brose. Love how military friendly the school is, don't love how little actual diversity there is... Wasn't impressed when current students compared student life to high school. Oh, and there's no synagogue...

23 Mar - Probably going to be in Boulder in the fall -- already called the Reserve Intel Unit in Denver and will be working at PACOM JIOC while I'm in school. Also found an apartment right by the law school :)

I'm still visiting W&M this weekend to make sure that I'm making the right decision...

21 Mar - Dinged at Duke.

19 Mar - Visited W&L. I love their honor code because I think it will be an easier transition coming from the military, but Lexington is in a very isolated location... hmm...

16 Mar - Withdrew from Cardozo, Iowa, and the wait list at Illinois.

14 Mar - Visited CU. I can tell I would be very happy there!

03 Mar - Withdrew from Temple and Case.

28 Feb - Scholly letter from BU via snail mail. Also a really nice handwritten note on the acceptance letter referring to my personal statement!!

24 Feb - Admitted to Emory via snail mail. Awesome hand-written note on the acceptance letter! Scholly info included.

22 Feb - Admitted to BU via phone call.

18 Feb - Scholly letters from W&M, Colorado, and Temple.

16 Feb - Waitlisted at Texas via email. LOCI sent.

14 Feb - Happy Valentine's Day! Admitted to Temple via status checker.

10 Feb - Dinged at Berkeley via email.

05 Feb - Letter in the mail from Michigan State encouraging me to consider applying... That's funny, we've come full circle: I applied, was accepted, and withdrew, and now they want to start all over again!

04 Feb - Email from CU congratulating me "again" and inviting me to their admitted student open house. Apparently I got in? I'll call them today and double check... Just got off the phone: a letter was sent to my address in TX dated 28 Jan. Because I don't have a permanent address, I gave them my parents' address for future mailings.

01 Feb - Admitted to Cardozo via phone call. Scholly letter included in snail mail packet.

31 Jan - Scholly email from Case naming me a Hugo Grotius International Law Scholar.

28 Jan - WL'ed at UIUC via email. LOCI sent.

26 Jan - Scholly letter from W&L.

24 Jan - Dinged at my alma mater via email. No love from GDub. WL'ed at Cornell via email. LOCI sent. Scholly email from Wake Forest.

22 Jan - Admitted to W&M via snail mail.

13 Jan - Admitted to W&L via email and status checker.

11 Dec - Retook the LSAT.

10 Dec - Admitted to Wake Forest via email.

8 Dec - Admitted to Iowa via email and snail mail. Handwritten note on the bottom of the letter was really nice!!

7 Dec - Received a check in the mail from Iowa explaining that they don't make military pay application fees, so they sent me the $60 back.

6 Dec - Admitted to Case Western via email.

3 Dec - Admitted to Michigan State via email.

16 Nov - Email from Texas saying they're holding my application for RD.

9 Oct - Took the LSAT.

Sweet! You have a lot of awesome softs that will help you get in.. what's your top choice?

Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Ahhh NC is beautiful, too! Not only is it a great school, but the husband will be the added bonus! I will keep an eye out for you and send positive thoughts your way. It's definitely a legitimate reason for you to go to UNC and I hope you get it! Good luck!

Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Good luck on the retake. I wish I had the motivation uggh!

Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Thank you! I can't believe it! :D:D Looks like we're in the same boat at UT...

Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

That sounds like an easy choice to me -- wait for law school! Maybe I just watch too much NCIS on TV... I'm sure you've heard this but will always be there. Either way, it sounds like you have a great career in the works!

Congrats on your acceptances!
Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

the first few are relieving, huh?

Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Yes! I thought of you!

Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

That's awesome! I wish I could get something handwritten... it's a good feeling knowing that SOMEONE read your PS and felt enough connection to write back to you. It validates all that time we spent writing the damn things! haha

Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Yea, I think so. I don't think I'm gonna get money from either Wake or CU so W & M is going to be the way to go. Of course, I didn't even think W & M was gonna be in the running, so the scholly offers from some schools might throw me for a loop!

Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

UM... PS Congrats on the re-take! :)

Sunday, December 12 2010 at 07:00 PM

Our #s are similar, and we applied to some of the same places. I'm hoping that my softs are enough to overlook my blah LSAT score. Good luck with your cycle!

Nice job
Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Nice job on the Wake scholly!

Ehh..
Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Naw... it's not that big of a difference to me when you consider that Wake's tuition would be 21k after scholly and W & M would be 28k... I'll take the extra 20k for 20 spots...

Wake
Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

Are you thinking about doing Wake since your husband will be in NC? To graduate law school with only 25k debt for tuition isn't a bad option (especially if it will prob be less b/c of GI)

Then
Thursday, June 24 2010 at 08:00 PM

come to W & M with meeee! haha

Thanks
Sunday, December 12 2010 at 07:00 PM

Thanks so much for the words of encouragement! I am definitely ready for the cycle to be over with so I can figure out where I'll be for the next 3yrs of my life. GL!

Um...
Wednesday, December 01 2010 at 07:00 PM

Maybe definitely..... Ha. Where's your head at these days?

Wow!
Sunday, August 08 2010 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on that $ at CU! Are you seriously considering it? I'd kill for that offer haha :) Good luck!!

Wednesday, February 09 2011 at 07:00 PM

Money at Boulder's tough to beat. You should wait and see with the waitlists though, I'm going to do that. Good luck
