Additional info & updates

Complete dates are day that law school report was requested and my best recollection on any notifications. Scholarships are the annual amounts.

01/07 - Well, just like everyone else, I am anxious to hear back from all the schools I applied to. I guess the waiting game is on and it has me considering the Feb LSAT. I better make a decision soon.

01/08 - Woke up to some not so good news. Rejection from OSU. Knew that would happen, but it still stings. Deferred by FSU. I wonder how long the deferral list is going to get.

01/11 - No news since Monday, which leads me to wonder what considerations are being taken on some of the applications. I have a feeling I will hear back from Pitt soon, so I have to keep my hopes up.

01/19 - Rejected at Temple. No surprise, but just like OSU, just a little more hope of a first tier law school shot down. So much for the SPACE program.

01/22 - No news today which in itself is upsetting because Monday rejections can be handled much better than Friday rejections. Maybe if I get a small envelope this Friday, I will just delay opening it until Monday. As if I had that type of will power.

01/24 - E-mail from Dayton congratulating me on acceptance. E-mail stated mail information is to follow. I am hoping they send me some money, because otherwise I don't think I can afford the school.

01/27 - Well, my hopes were substantiated today. Received a letter from Dayton offering $7,500 a semester as long as I stay in the accelerated program leading to a degree in 2 1/2 years. Nice handwriritten note at the bottom. This is how individuals must feel who have 165's on the LSAT when tier one schools give them money. Right now, I'm not sure a T4 school is for me, but it is nice to have the consideration. Oh Pitt, just take a gamble on me.

01/29 - Well, no news today. Would much rather get some negatives on a Monday than the rest of the week. Applying to law school is definitely an exercise in humility. I'm just getting tired of the waiting game (I'm sure like everyone else without stellar numbers). Logic game difficulties overplay in my head because those are the 10 wrong answers that would make me an auto in at many of these schools.

Note to St. Johns: Please stop sending me needless information via e-mail and snail mail unless you are going to send me a fee waiver. If you send one, then I will be happy to apply.

02/01 - Another month passed, more anxiety added. It's frustrating to see individiuals on here who applied to the schools I applied to almost two months after me and have heard back answers due to the fact that they have the numbers. I guess that is the name of the game though, whether I like it or not. Haven't heard from any schools in a while, so I decided to e-mail a few.

Checked application status on WVU's website and found that a decision was made. Followed the link to find an acceptance. Not entirely surprising, but still feels really good. I'm hoping they send me some type of stipend for the first year, because 21k out of state for the first year is a tough one to swing.

02/03 - Received acceptance to Cooley. No surprise. Will probably withdraw because I can't see myself in MI unless it would be Ann Arbor.

02/08 - Oh Pitt, this cruel waiting game you play with me. Most of the law schools I have e-mailed to keep up with my status gave me about the vaguest answers possible. "Sometime before May 1st." That is way too much information for me to handle. It looks very clear that if I do get into one of these top schools, I will be losing a tuition deposit at another earlier choice. I'm hoping WVU sends me some money in March and makes my decision a lot easier. I'm not counting on it though.

02/09 - Received a nice e-mail from Dayton inviting me to a special dinner, tour, and stay all compliments of the school. Is this how those in the 90th+ percentile LSAT get treated by the upper half of T1's? Well, it sure feels nice to feel wanted by somewhere.

02/11 - Well, it looks like I won't be studying law in the beautiful state of Connecticut. I have a suggestion for law schools that look at numbers only (which are most, I know). Instead of stating that admission is competitive in the rejection letter, just put something to the effect of: Didn't you see our average LSAT score, it was a 16(Insert high or low digit here)? How foolish of you to waste your time, money, and hopes applying. Your score on a 4 hour test is a better judge of who you are as a person and law student than near perfection for 4 years of undergraduate coursework. Hmm...do I sound a bit discouraged? Yes, I would say so. I know this is the name of the game though, I understood it coming in. Hell, just look at the website address. Well, Pitt, UF, and UNLV, I hope you actually spend the time taking a good look. Pitt, I know you are as you are taking your good old time. Maybe that is just wishful thinking. UNC, I hope you do too, but I am doubting that.

02/16 - I love the admissions office at Pitt. In December they let me know I will have a decision in 6-8 weeks later. Well, 8 weeks later I inquire and find out it could be another 6-10 weeks? Ahhh....a day in the life of an average numbers applicant.

02/22 - Well, Pitt, you gave a decision finally. Well, not exactly a definite decision. I got waitlisted. 10-25% chance of getting in considering the past. Now I have to cheer for others not to go to Pitt? Man, that is a difficult thing to do. Especially knowing how much I wish to go to Pitt. Well, now I guess all I have to do is hope and pray. I really hope I receive a call sometime this spring from the Pittsburgh Admissions Office.

03/14 - Denied at George Mason. Very apropos a day after my return from a trip to D.C. Definitely not surprised by the rejection but the further acknowledgement of my belief that law schools don't need anything past the LSAT/GPA is frustrating.

03/26 - Rejected at Florida. Actually disappointed at this one. I really wanted to attend and felt like I might have a chance considering they took 5 months to consider my application. I would have rather just been rejected back in December if I was going to be rejected. Apparently my application was just on the floor all the while and they just found it one day and decided to mark it rejected. Looks like my shot at going to a T1 is looking dismal right now. I'm disenamored.

on your acceptances thus far. I have somewhat similar numbers as you and I'm starting to get worried. Sorry about OSU. At least you still have pitt to look forward to. Judging from your acceptances and rejection, i will most likely not get in anywhere this cycle, considering you have higher numbers than I do. Good luck with the rest of the schools!

thanks...
Thursday, January 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

for the vote of confidence. i don't know if my soft factors will help me in the admissions process, since i'm not a URM. I will be really surprised if any school accepts me this year.

Thanks

Thank you for the words of encouragement! I sort of expected the bad news from pitt with my LSAT score. It sucks that just one test can determine so much. Best of luck to you.

sorry and congrats

congrats on your cceptances - at least you know you have somewhere to go. sorry to to hear about temple -- with similar numbers, i too am hoping for a SPACE admit.

Have you looked at Penn State Dickinson? If you are interested in Pennsylvania that may be a very good option.

You too (pitt!)

If you think you were a good SPACE applicant (aka soft skills or "hardship" growing up) why don't you try MADISON, they look at more than just numbers, that's how I got in =)

True! I won't have thought of applying there, but I happened to have a project placement there while I was working and LOVED the city. Best of Luck!

well...

it's not really an achievement unless I get accepted. schools can waitlist me all they want, but if they don't admit me at the end, it's just like having all my hard work going down the drain.

by the way...
Thursday, January 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

congrats on all the acceptances so far! i'm sure you will have more to come.

thanks!

I know, it's a great school...but SO much money!! Looks like you've got some good offers so far...hopefully more to come!

You'll do fine
Sunday, January 28 2007 at 07:00 PM

I'm waiting on pins and needles right along with you. But, from the looks of it, you're doing fine on the apps. Just remember, you will be a lawyer no matter where you go! Good luck to you in the near future.

My first choice changes daily. Though for the price, it will be hard to beat WVU.

Cooley

Hey, Thanks. That helps set me at rest a bit. I would avoid Cooley if I were you. You can definitely do better! Have you considered applying for Stetson U. in Florida. I have a buddy with similar numbers as you and he got into Stetson no problem. Stetson isn't ranked very high by U.S News, but they are a very solid institution. U.S News has no idea what they're talking about. Just a thought. Good luck again. -B2B2B

thanks...
Thursday, January 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

for the congratulatory message. I'm still somewhat overjoyed by the news. Sorry to hear about UF. At least you have a few choices to choose from, and not limited to one school like me. Good luck with the rest of the schools.

I appreciate your message of congratulations. I am indeed very excited to have the opportunity to attend my top choice. You may still be able to do so as well... and your numbers look pretty good for UNLV, although it is very competitive. I had a big advantage because UNLV strongly favors Nevada residents... Anyway, good luck with Pitt and UNLV, and congratulations on your acceptances!
