So excited about Depaul, kinda bummed about Loyola but optimistic about the other aps.

2-26-07 Apparently ive gotten into howard law, since they sent me an email for their open house

2-27-07 Got my first outright rejection from Northwestern. Even tho it was expected it still hurts lol. Well, still one more reach school to go. Hopefully Fordham'll be a better outcome.

3-12-07 Came back from out of town and opened my mailbox to see an acceptance letter from Marquette. Im kinda surprised that I didnt get any money. Truthfully, I cant really see myself living in wisconsin.

3-12-07 LOL funny I said that^. Opened my mailbox this afternoon and greeted with another letter from Marquette offering me a $15,000/yr scholarship! Im so stoked! I have to let them know by april 2nd... right around the corner

3-27-07 I am HONORED to be under second evaluation at Fordham.

3-30-07 I check my email after coming from happy hour to find out that my Fordham application has gone from 2nd evaluation to WAITLIST. Not what I ultimately hoped for, but it is definitely a victory nonetheless, considering my numbers. I'll get an official letter explaining more about the waitlist later this week. So now I just wait...

5-02-07 You gotta be kidding me. I check my email today and see that DePaul has raised my scholarship from $30,000 over three years to $45,000. They didnt give an explanation but then again I dont really need one. WHOO HOO! This just means a better furnished downtown apartment lol

Congrats! Be blessed :-)

Congrats on Howard. I got waitlisted and I have to send a letter of continued interest - the hardest thing I've ever written. Do you think a paper with "PLEASE???" would be enough? LOL

Congrats

On Howard. Are you seriously considering attending?

Howard

I'm not really sure yet. I plan on going to their Open House on March 9th. But rent is really expensive in Northwest DC. I don't know how I would feel about commuting to class everyday or about sharing a place with a complete stranger. I also don't know how I feel about living in DC for three years. Howard does have good job opportunities though so who knows. Did you go to Howard for UG?

Nope
Wednesday, November 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

I haven't completely decided against them yet and that's only because of the money they offered me. But I really just don't see myself attending there. I really disliked it and it was an Open House. If that was them at their best I hate to see what it is like on a normal day.

nice De Paul

nice acceptance, De Paul. my stats are close to yours. I hope I get lucky, I submitted my apps late in the cycle

The nerve

I have no respect for people who put comments like ^that anonymously. However you may feel about my credentials, I know for a fact that any law school that I decide to attend will be well rewarded. The truth of the matter is what may be an ugly attitude to you is me being aware of my personal worth within this profession... and apparently Marquette feels the same way too seeing that they actually DID offer me a scholarship.

Thanks!

Thank You...and I dont know. I am waiting to hear about $ still from MU and about admissions from DePaul and Loyola. Good Luck with Fordham! I applied to an Ivy League law school but I didn't post it because it is such a reach.

Thanks!

no bubble busted

In my actual email it says IF YOU GET THIS EMAIL YOU HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED TO HOWARD LAW... doesnt get to much clearer than that. Not to mention my acceptance letter was sent to my permenant address a few days later. LOL I kinda forgot to post that... thanks for your concern tho.

RE:whew!
Thursday, September 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

To be honest, I was content with going to Depaul when they were tied at 80 but now that theyve dropped 11 spots, I'm a bit concerned that they might drop to 3rd tier in the near future... which is wack. If Imma be at a 3rd tier it needs to be Howard. Hopefully Fordham'll let me in, needless to say, all other options will be irrelevant.

Congratulations

Awesome job this cycle! Looks like you are heading to DePaul. Was your decision based on US News rankings, or location?

When???
Sunday, June 24 2007 at 08:00 PM

When did you officially withdraw from Marquette? What kind of soft factors did you have? I applied to their PT program as a Af-Am male.
