WASHBURN: So this will be the last thing I report on here. I visited Washburn and Topeka and I love it. The town is really nice and although it's definitely not as big as Phoenix it does have all the shopping necessary with a mall, Best Buy, Target, Lowe's, Kohl's and Bed Bath and Beyond all conveniently located with a mile of each other. As for the school campus is pretty small with the law school set off a little from everything else, but the student union isn't too far away. There is FREE parking on either side of the law school. If you went to ASU you understand what that means to somebody that parked in lot 59 for $200 to be about a mile from classes. The people at the school were really nice and the students even stopped me in the parking lot and talked to me more about the school. The classrooms seemed technologically up to date and the court room was really nice. Also the law clinic seemed like a must try. I talked to a student that did criminal and had just gotten back from representing a client. Beyond that if you visit Topeka to look at Washburn you must try Boss Hawg's bbq we told them why we were there and it was our first night and they gave us an employee discount, free memorabilia and free bbq sauce to take home. Not to mention the bbq was amazing. Good luck to everyone.

Additional info & updates

Applied to all the schools about mid December.

1/28/08- Got another letter from Washburn, no scholarship offer. But, so far Washburn is my first choice.

1/29- participated in the Washburn chat room. I really like the program they have laid out. Unless I get into ASU or get a scholarship from a tier 2 or 3 school (not likely) I'm going there.

2/4- Ladies and gentleman we have been accepted to a tier two. I received an acceptance letter to Toledo today. And they offer the certificate I want. Right now it's a toss up between them and Washburn. Any input would be appreciated.

2/7- waitlisted at UMKC. Would have considered going there over Washburn. Might just withdraw

2/9- did some research today unless I get into St. Louis or ASU I'm definitelly going to Washburn.

2/11- called St. Louis. File is complete, but they still haven't reviewed it and they basically told me there's nothing I can do now but wait. I really hope I get in there because there's pretty much no chance I'll get into ASU.

2/11- Rejected at New Mexico. First rejection :-( but as I said earlier today wasn't looking at going there anyhow. Also got into Dayton by e-mail, no suprise

2/13- Got a call from a 2nd year student at Washburn that graduated from my university encouraging me to go to Washburn and offering to answer any questions for me, even offered to help me move in. I'm thoroughly impressed with how kind the school has been.

2/15- rejected at Gonzaga in a nice letter. Don't really care, but would have been nice to not get any rejections at tier 3's.

3/3- $7K a year scholarship to Dayton. Nice to be offered one, but I'm still going to Washburn

3/17- Rejected at St. Louis :-( They were my #1 choice for a long time and if Washburn hadn't been so nice still would be my #2. Oh well, some things are meant to be. If I don't finish filling the rest of these out, go ahead and assume they were rejections, especially Southern IL which I never bothered sending some form they required on a minor in consumption I got in a border town while on foot after drinking in Mexico and still blew less than .04

4/5/08- accepted to Creighton. Really cool cause they're the first school to personalize my acceptance letter. They specifically mentioned being impressed with my leadership experience as a national officer for Phi Beta Lambda.

4/9/08- Called UNLV and Pacific, neither have reached a decision yet. Should know by May 1st which is good because I'm planning on going to Topeka to check out Washburn May 10.

4/11/08- Washburn called to let me know what I was approved for in student loans. $8K subsidized, the rest is 10 at 6% and 18 at 8% their website predicts you need $34K a year. With my fiance helping me through last two years though I should only (haha only) have $54K in debt when finished. Almost half of which would be subsidized. Also later in the day received letter from Arkansas in the most rediculous wording that I was waitlisted.

7/5/08- award letter from Washburn I am a dawson scholar and will receive a $5,000 scholarship for my first year with $2,500 a semester. Surprised to receive scholarship so late, but very happy to receive it. Certain I've made the right choice.

8/22/08- End of the first week of school. I definitelly made the right decision. The environment is more friendly and helpful than I possibly could have imagined. Aside from that it isn't competetive at all and not one person has asked me what my undergrad gpa or LSAT were as it should be, however I've heard it's different elsewhere. If you're considering Washburn you won't go wrong in picking it.

We've got similar numbers and applied to a few of the same schools. Good luck to you.

Sunday, November 25 2007 at 07:00 PM

on Cleveland. How and when did you hear?

Friday, November 09 2007 at 07:00 PM

I actually visited U of A in October and I couldn't agree more. The campus was beautiful but Tucson is a shithole.

Friday, November 09 2007 at 07:00 PM

It depends on the school. Sometimes schools don't even have status checkers. Either way, the only status checker that I found useful was Houston's. If they have one, it's on their website and they usually send you an e-mail with the login information you need in order to check your status.

Congrats back!
Sunday, December 23 2007 at 07:00 PM

Looks like you're having a good cycle too. Right now I'm torn between Creighton and University of Toledo...look into Creighton a little more...it has higher endowment then some t1's and is only one of 5 non t1 or t2 in the top 50 private law schools...omaha is beautiful too. Anyways, good luck on the rest of your cycle and keep me updated!

Sunday, January 06 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the kind words. It feels good to get another acceptance, but I really like Tulsa. I'm from OK and I've been up to TU more than a few times. It's an under-rated school IMO. I may want to stay in OK, too. Not sure. Gonna be a tough decision. Congrats on Toledo though. Tier 2, not too shabby!

Sunday, December 23 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hmmm...that's odd. Through the application process if I've learned anything it's that Creighton's admissions office is by far the most friendly. I would try giving Julie Nearman a call...I talked to her numerous times and when I was accepted she even mentioned to me on the phone my continued interest showed my desire to attend.

Sunday, December 23 2007 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, I'll keep you updated. Washburn is definitely up there, no decisions yet for me. However, I did speak to a student of washburn on the phone and liked what i heard...i'm going to join their chat on the 19th too and go from there.

Sunday, May 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey congrats to you on your acceptances. Although I didn't apply, I've heard a lot of very positive things about Washburn. Are you set to head there in the fall or are you planning to wait the others out...? Good luck .

Sunday, May 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

Glad you feel you'll be happy at Washburn. I know a guy who went there for undergrad and had some positive things to say. That's great regarding the tuition - should be very affordable. The thought of potentially dropping $30k+ living exp. isn't too thrilling for me, but whatever is meant to be will be. Sorry to see SLU didn't work out. Best of luck.

Thanks & Congrats
Saturday, February 02 2008 at 07:00 PM

Sorry for the late reply, but i just noticed your post. I visited Washburn and it is a very nice school. Also, the admissions department is really nice. I am still waiting to hear from some schools to make my decision. How did you hear about the waitlist from UMKC?

Saturday, February 02 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the UMKC information. The school recently reopened my application due to a misunderstanding so I am waiting to hear from them all over again. I live in MO so MU and UMKC are my top choices. I will definitely email you if you I end up attending Washburn.

Wednesday, January 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

I see you are visiting the school soon. I'd love to hear your thoughts on Washburn. It is in my top 2 depending on where my fiance has the best job prospects. I will probably head up there for the June ASD. Best of luck to you wherever you end up!

Saturday, August 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey there, just noticed you are attending washburn U. How are you liking it? I was actually accepted to spring '09, it is probably top on my list right now. How is the school? Is housing expensive? Did you have to apply for your scholarship? Any additional info would be appreciated...also, are you glad you decided to go with washburn instead of creighton?

Saturday, August 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thank you so much for your insider information :) I am totally caught between a rock and a hard place, I am in your same boat now, trying to decide between Creighton, Washburn, and UST. I do plan on visiting the school after I make my decision, but we'll see. If I were to receive a scholarship (like you did) it would sure be helpful...

Need Advice!!

Hey man, I am really having cold feet and am hoping to hear something refreshing...after spending a few semesters at Washburn, how do you feel your job prospects are looking? I am just getting so frustrated...After all this time and effort, studying, and doing various research, I am thinking my law school dreams are winding down. It may just be nerves, but it seems that everything I read these days that prospects for lawyers are getting worse and worse. So many new attorneys seem to be having issues just making student loan payments, let alone, living comfortably. This morning has just been the most frustrating morning ever. When I first decided to pursue a law degree it seemed like a 'no-brainer,' and is something I know I would enjoy... now it seems like I cannot find a good reason to pursue it. I am hoping this is just cold feet and that my thoughts will change, and of course I am not making any rash decisions. It kills me to say this, but I just hate the thought of graduating with a law degree and being unable to make ends meet. What do you think about things? Maybe I just need someone to help bring me back to the light, I appreciate any thoughts/suggestions you may have. You have been so helpful thus far.

Saturday, August 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

LOL! You got that right. I was just doing some research on the town, don't know that my girlfriend could handle it...we keep our apartment at 73 and she STILL needs the fire to be on. So I am just in limbo right now, the initial euphoria of law school acceptance has worn off. I have decided that I will only attend a public school, right now between your school and Akron, also waiting to hear from U of utah (no chance) and Texas Tech. Your recommendation is one of the main reasons I am still considering Washburn, my g-fried (soon to be fiancee) does not want to live in kansas, but i may have to tell her "tuff beans..." So what are your plans for after graduation?

Sunday, January 04 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey, did you ever hear back from UMKC after you were WL? Did you withdraw or did they send a letter, anything? I just got WL and it's my #1 choice. Live in KC, MO and did my undergrad at UMKC. I'm very disappointed.

Sunday, January 04 2009 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! And Congrats on Washburn, BTW. It's a good school. I'm from Kansas City, MO, so I know all about UMKC & Washburn. I wouldn't be upset if I got in there. Was just hoping to stay in KC since I'm married, have a house, husband just got a new job, etc etc. Gald to hear you like Washburn. Haven't heard a bad thing about it yet!

pbl forever
