Additional info & updates

12/19/08 - I just received my acceptance letter from McGeorge! I am soo happy! My 1 year old son is having fun screaming with me. :-) I didn't expect to receive any scholarship money, so the scholarship is icing on the cake. Woohoo!!! Now I can enjoy Christmas.

01/23/09 - Received acceptance packet from Southwestern. Yay! Acceptance letter said that scholarship info will follow...I really hope they give me some money.

02/06/09 - Happy rainy day! Received acceptance letters from Loyola and Santa Clara today. I am so stoked that I was accepted by all of the schools I applied to. Now comes the hard part of choosing which school to attend, but I can't complain.

02/10/09 - I thought I'd update my information because I'm kind of having status checker withdrawal...I'm such a weirdo. I am looking forward to visiting all 4 schools and I'm hoping that I'll be able to tell where I belong after my visits.

03/22/09 - My school visits are over...I am definitely leaning toward McGeorge because I feel it is the best fit for me and my family. Santa Clara is definitely out...their ASD day convinced me NOT to attend the school because it was unorganized and I wasn't impressed with the student panel (I did like the profs). I liked Loyola, but I don't want to stay in Los Angeles so it seems pretty silly to attend LLS. I fell in love with McGeorge and Sacramento during my visit, so now I just have to convince my hubby to move. :-) It also makes the most financial sense for me to attend McGeorge since I have a scholarship (at least for the first year), and the cost of living is so low in Sacramento. I am not looking to go into "biglaw" so the ranking of the law school doesn't mean that much to me. I also could see myself living in Sac for a long time, it is just a beautiful city!

04/13/09 - My dreams of moving to Sacramento might have to wait...my husband really doesn't want to move out of southern CA so it looks like it may be Loyola for me. I am definitely not upset about attending Loyola - I think it's an awesome school - I just was looking forward to moving and I really like McGeorge.

06/26/09 - It's been awhile since I've been on here & I finally decided to update my status. I was sad to withdraw from McGeorge, but I'm happy for the person that got my spot. I am excited about Loyola...I just can't believe that school starts in a month and a half! I'm just trying to enjoy my summer and rest up for 4 years of law school. :-)

I just spotted your profile! Big congrats! I'd most likely go for Loyola, given those options. Have fun visiting the schools.

Congrats on your cycle. Have you decided where you'll be going in the fall?

Congrats!!

Congratulations!! I am leaning towards McGeorge as well, I feel the same way about Sacramento:)

Sunday, July 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

congrats on your cycle! I take it you're probably going to end up in McGeorge? I'm the same way :)

I had the same experience with Santa Clara. I went to their "early accepted students reception" and actually left after about a half hour because I was so uncomfortable. I'm glad to know it wasn't just me. Good Luck with law school :)

Thanks! I hope the same for you at Loyola! Congratulations, I like the campus (it has that industrial architecture). :)

Make a decision yet?

Loyola is a wonderful option, a solid tier 2 with a outstanding entertainment law program. Considering your numbers, you must have really presented a soft-factor that made them sit up and take notice. Congrats! Good to see a fellow history major succeed.
