Additional info & updates

5/26 - Wow! That was quick. As expected, a rejection from Bama. That's okay because now I know with no doubt where I will be attending.

5/25 - Status checker says Decision Made at Alabama. Hoping snail mail or email will arrive soon.

4/18-I'm in Birmingham house hunting and attending Alabama Spring game. When my mother went by to feed our cat, she found a letter from USC in the mailbox- wait listed there as well.

4/5-received Ole Miss waitlist letter yesterday. Only 2 more to go to close out this cycle.

4/2- called USC yesterday and they said I should have a decision mailed next week (ie, reject?). Called Ole Miss today and found out I am on the waitlist and my file was discussed at length in a meeting last night.

3/21-even the crickets are quiet at this point. Waiting (not so patiently) for my last 3 decisions. Seat deposit due dates loom

2/11 - crickets chirping... like many people, I thought my cycle would be almost complete by now. Bama's ASD is this Friday and since I've not received a decision, I'm afraid it does not bode well. But, hope springs eternal!!

1/28- status at Bama now reads "Pending"

1/26 - in at Mercer. I plan to attend Open House there in February. Choices are great!

1/23 - in at Samford. Whoo hooo! Loved my visit there and really felt great about the campus, faculty and environment.

1/22 - decision mailed from Mercer today.

1/21-status checker changed to "Decision Mailed" at Samford today.

1/12 - received status checker from Samford today via email. I am "Under Review". Please, please, please ...

12/22 - received rejection from Stetson today. Somewhat surprising, but that's okay. 4 more to go.

12/17 - status checker at Stetson changed to "Decision Mailed". It would be great to go 2-0. Fingers crossed & prayers said

12/17 - email received from Charleson. I'm IN! Packet to follow via mail.

12/15 - application under review at Stetson. Please Santa, bring me at least one decision for Christmas. I've been very good this year.

11/25 - email from Samford stating application complete and would be reviewed when Committee meets. Decisions not going out until after mid-December.

Sat for LSAT in June 2008

10/4/08 Retake of LSAT

Visited Alabama and Cumberland. Loved both. Looks like Cumberland will send out the first decision letters around Christmas. Hoping it's a Merry Christmas for me!
