Additional info & updates

03-10 - My status checker finally changed -- Application under evaluation at Davis!

03-21 - Email from Case - $5,000 each year if I maintain a 2.3 GPA. Oh, and a $200 travel stipend to visit the school. Cool stuff.

IN AT FLORIDA!!! I'm super excited!!

03-26 - Rejection from Davis. I'm really bummed about this one....

Also, waitlisted at Baylor today. If I reactivate my application for the spring quarter, they will offer me admission for spring of 2009.

04-07 - I'm not exactly sure what day they processed my fall transcript, but my GPA is now at a 3.95. I figure with all the waitlists I'm on, it couldn't hurt to send in an updated transcript.

04-10 - Finally heard back from Boston. Nothing I didn't expect, but I really would have loved to go there.

In other news, there's a blizzard outside today!! Kinda makes Florida look better and better :)

04-23 - Fordham email saying that there probably won't be many more offers from the waitlist until JUNE! At least I have some sort of time frame to look at now.

Yeah. I'm probably going to do the Pharm Patent thing. It would be nice to get away from Organic and whatnot. What are you thinking with where you are headed?

you're not late at all...
Monday, May 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

I think im just REALLY early, but if you have all your stuff ready when you get your score you'll be more than fine. As for more top 20 schools, I don't really wanna go west of the mississippi, i guess i'm putting all my chips on vandy and cornell and hoping for the best. Thank you so much for your comment and good luck with the lsat(I hope the scale will be better to you than it was to me) and your cycle.

IP Law
Wednesday, August 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

Maybe I will work with you one day. Are you considering whether or not the school is known for its IP law program? The people on (think that's it) don't thing there is much emphasis on which law school you attend.

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Waiting for my new score is KILLING me....what's your guess for the release date?

UVA Fee Waiver
Sunday, June 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey, you asked me about my UVA fee waiver the other day. They actually sent me one because they liked that I have an advanced degree (MA). Good luck with everything!

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Have you given up? =( Or just not updating these days?

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Good! I'm dying to hear from's killing me. Lets try not to worry....=0)

Tuesday, November 06 2007 at 07:00 PM

and i heard it's a pretty good idea to do so. i made sure to specifically mention programs/other aspects of case that really attracted me, instead of just generically saying "i love your school"... you have good numbers, i'm sure you'll get in. maybe i'll be seeing you in august : )

Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

...on your cycle! We have some similar schools - I'll be pulling for you! Keep me informed..I wish I had your GPA!!!

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Yay! Must feel good to get all those applications out....good luck! You'll do great!

scratch my earlier email line comment

Monday, June 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

No additional forms are needed for consideration; Baylor automatically considers you for academic merit scholarships upon your application. If you go to their financial aid page, however, there are links to two specialized scholarships (ex. one is awarded to undergaduate debaters) you can apply to separately. Hope this helps, and best of luck! Is Baylor among your "serious contenders"?

Thursday, December 13 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hi there, I can honestly say that I don't have a favorite. But of the 5 schools I've seen, I didn't like two. I was really unimpressed with Lewis & Clark - the facilities seemed old and the campus was small - not for me. And DePaul's facilities seemed really nice but I could never get past the location of the law school. Being smack in the middle of downtown Chicago sounds good in theory but in reality was a giant turn-off for me. The other 3 I've seen (U. of Oregon, Loyola Chicago, and Indiana Bloomington) all appealed to me in different ways. For someone looking for a more traditional college experience, Oregon and Indiana's campuses are great and their law facilities are fantastic. Someone wanting a more urban experience would probably like Loyola Chicago better, and I think it's the best of both worlds as it's in a good part of Chicago (there's a park down the block and meter parking for $1 an hour) but still close to all that Chicago has to offer. Let me know if you have any other questions. Good luck with all your apps!

Good luck...

this cycle! We have a little bit of overlap in schools and I hope we both start hearing good news soon. I was thinking of applying to Nebraska - did you apply for any special reason? I don't know anything about them, but I like what I've seen on the website. PS: I'm totally jealous of your GPA - congrats on that!

Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

on Nebraska! How exciting to hear back so soon with such good news, although you were totally an auto-admit! Are you going to visit soon? I think I'm going to go ahead and apply, but I'd like some first hand information.

Thursday, January 10 2008 at 07:00 PM

Yep, I got the offer with the admission packet. I haven't done the FAFSA yet..I need to get on that. You can have my NU scholarship if you want; I'm not going to go there anyways :)

Sunday, December 16 2007 at 07:00 PM

No, they didn't have me fill anything out... it was kind of a surprise acceptance, as I hadn't really seen many others with acceptances, and my status checker seemed stuck at "Evaluation in Progress"... it was probably there for 2+ months.

Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

Sorry about the waitlist - don't they know what they are missing? :) Are you good to puruse it? Good luck!

Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

I most definitely regret not applying to more schools. In fact, I've considered trying to slip in a few last minute apps but I think it's a nerves thing more than anything. I actually applied to all the schools I wanted to, even if I knew my chances were next to nothing. At this point, an application would be nothing more than desparation and it'd probably take so long to go complete, etc. that it wouldn't make me feel better! :) I did pursue Kentucky - LOCI, final graduate transcript (I didn't have time to update through LSAC), etc. I really love what I read about it so I'm hoping it's an option. I am supposed to be reviewed again in early March. I definitely think you are right about next month being big for us although to be honest, I'm stunned I haven't been rejected at several of the schools already. I know for sure that at least one that I'm auto-reject at does a mass rejection at the first of April so I guess I know when to expect that. Would you consider taking the June LSAT to get off a waitlist? That thought has been running through my mind the last several days. I'm not 100% sure it's possible, but it might be worth it?

Yay! All apps done!
Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Who does George Mason think they are? =0) Loyola Chicago is a great school, if you have any questions about the city let me know! I'm really looking forward to hearing from Colorado and Wisconsin...

Sunday, February 10 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hey thanks. I just heard back from bama this morning. I'll find out about possible scholarship tomorrow.

Good luck
Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

at Florida! I know you can beat it and get in.

Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

about Fordham - stay positive though!

Monday, January 07 2008 at 07:00 PM

Fordham is also my top choice. Hopefully we'll both get good news before April 1.

Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

on Case! :)

Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

for Florida! I am sooo happy for you! Way to charm them. I see you don't have it ranked as a #1 choice - how does it fall for you?

Sunday, October 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on all your acceptances. We have similar #'s, I can't believe I haven't got you watchlisted... anyway congrats again and any idea on a first choice?

Sunday, October 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, picking a school is tough... just like the rest of the application process! The only advice I could give you is the same regurgitateds stuff from LSD-where do you want to practice/ what kind of law do you want to practice/ are you concerned about your debt load, etc. I am sending my Case deposit in this week and I'm still nervous about it so don't feel weird.

Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

You know, I'm not sure which is really better between UF and Case, but to be honest, I'm not really sold on the Case-Arc curriculum approach. I think I'd prefer a more standard class structure. Also, not to live in Cleveland... that's worth a lot to me! :) Did you read their viewbook? It was nice, but there was something about it that rubbed me wrong. I think part of it was that every student featured was REALLY accomplished and outstanding and to me it was a little overwhelming and in a way, off putting. Where do you want to practice? Also, it may not make a difference to you, but Case slipped in the rankings this year. If you can, take the travel stiped, visit and then decide!

Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

on Baylor!

Sunday, February 10 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks. Yeah, Alabama was really my top choice. I only applied to others just in case I didn't get into Alabama or got a bigger scholarship elsewhere. I went to the ASD this past Friday and was really blown away with the whole school. So is it Florida for you or are you waiting on Fordham?

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

These waitlists suck. I had a major freak out today when I realized it looks like I'm going to have to deposit at not where I saw myself. Where are you leaning towards? Loyola is in a great location - I would go there, but I don't think I could deal with the religion thing. What waitlists are you going to ride out?

Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

I'm really sorry to see that you got some bad news... not such a fun way to tentatively end a cycle (hey, your waitlists could be magic!) UW And BC just don't have any idea what they are missing! I see you still have Baylor - I'm from TX so let me know if you have any questions! :) I can't wait to see what you decide to do... good luck weighing all those options!

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

I'm staying on all the waitlists...and I'm holding myself back from seriously stalking UMich, my dream school from the start. I just hope something comes through!

Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

There's a lot of reasons I didn't apply, but the biggest is that I'm really wanting to leave Texas for a while. I applied to UT just because if by some chance the adcom had a collective stroke and let me in, I wouldn't be able to resist the rep + in-state tuition. Otherwise, I didn't apply to any TX schools! :) As to Baylor specifically, Waco is not really my style and I really don't have a desire to do litigation. Also, it's kinda backwards there - the last year is your hardest year. It's got a GREAT rep in TX and it's only an hour/hour and a half from Austin which rocks (not for work necessarily, but shopping, nightlife, etc.). Also close to Dallas (where I live!) and it's within 3 hours of San Antonio, another fun place. COL in Waco is really low though and the campus is pretty. A friend of mine from business school boyfriend goes to Baylor Law - I'm sure he'd be happy to talk to you/answer questions you might have. Is it possible for you to visit? I'm putting up my email in case you have ???s...
