Additional info & updates

week of 11/18
Applications sent to Texas Tech, Wesleyan, and Baylor.
File complete at Wesleyan and Baylor within 2 days of receipt.

Accepted at Baylor via e-mail! Status checker still shows no decision has been made. Snail mail letter to follow.

Baylor status checker finally caught up with real life. Still waiting on official acceptance letter to come in the mail.

Application sent to Washington & Lee just for kicks.

Changed both GPA numbers to reflect what should be a 4.0 for my final semester.

File complete at Tech. Also got final semester grades today. Will request they send an updated transcript to LSAC for processing, as these last three A's help my LSAC GPA slightly. Hopefully this will get done before I go under review at Tech.

File complete at W&L. All apps are done on my end.

In at Tech with Regent's scholarship covering full tuition and fees. Dean Cook requested a face-to-face meeting, and at the end he handed me the envelope with the acceptance letter. Woot!!

Paid my $300 refundable seat deposit at Tech today. They gave me a pen. :)

After a terribly long drought, I've finally got a decision at Wesleyan. Will look for the letter in the mail in the next few days. Still nothing from W&L.

Accepted at Texas Wesleyan with a $30,000 total scholarship, with $15,000 of it to go toward my first year and the remaining $15,000 to be split between the second and third years, renewable if I stay in the top 25% of my class.

Withdrew from Wesleyan. Hope somebody else can use that money. :)

Waitlisted at Washington & Lee.

The email and the snail mail told me about the scholarship for Baylor. I don't know whether that means that only those who are notified immediately of the scholarship get one, but my guess is that money opens up later on.

Good luck with all of your apps

Congrats on the Baylor acceptance! For what quarter were you accepted?

Thursday, October 30 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey, thanks! Congrats on the Baylor acceptance. I visited the campus twice. Absolutely gorgeous. Just wondering... why would you prefer Tech over Baylor?

Monday, June 09 2008 at 08:00 PM

did you include being a single mom in your statement or applicaton? I'm also a single mom, but I dont know how or if I would include that into my application.

Thursday, October 30 2008 at 08:00 PM

I see. Thank you for your response. Happy holidays! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, though I doubt you'll need it.

the anonymous was from catm22, sorry about that

Thursday, October 30 2008 at 08:00 PM

AHHH!! I LOVE Lubbock! I LOVE Texas Tech! Still recovering from my visit. What a great place... I can see why you were that reluctant to go elsewhere. See you there buddy! Isn't Dean Cook the best? Keep in touch! Please let me know if there's anything I can do for you.

TTU Regent's Scholarship
Thursday, October 30 2008 at 08:00 PM

Almost forgot: I think the Regents Full Tuition + Tuition Related Expenses Scholarship totals to about 50k. I know, I'm picky. Sure feels great to say 50k instead of 45k. :)

My reciept for my $300 non-binding deposite is placed neatly in my "Law School Responses" folder. I think I still have to pay $1000 by early June to seal the deal for fall semester. Anyway, e-mail me. I'm not really into sports, but... go Red Raiders!
