1/17/2006-Received an acceptance package from the U of MN, via U.S. mail, with a $5,000 per year renewable scholarship. I'm very excited!
Still 7 more to go....
Also, on 1/11/2006 I received a little postcard from Boston U saying my application was just now complete. Anyone else have an application with them that took that long to go complete? I was a little baffled...
On 1/20/2006 I received an email from the dean of admissions saying that I had been accepted to Chicago-Kent, and that an acceptance package would follow by mail.
1/25/2006--I'm getting impatient....
1/25/2006--Received acceptance package from Chicago-Kent with a $20,000/year renewable scholarship offer. Pretty sweet deal, although probably not enough to pull me away from my only other acceptance so far, MN.
1/27/2006--Two events today...first I got waitlisted at GW. I can't decide if I'm surprised or not, but I hear they have fairly interesting admissions standards. I have a good friend who was accepted to Georgetown, but waitlisted at GW. Who knows.
Also, my status checker at Georgetown turned to decision. Based on what I've seen on LSN, I'm expecting either a ding or maybe an opportunity to join their part-time waitlist...whoo hoo. :) I guess you have to learn to take the bad with the good..
1/30/2006--Received a lovely letter from Columbia saying that although I am fabulous, they just can't welcome me into their law school. Are we surprised? I think not...this was definitely a long shot :)
2/1/2006--Received notification today that a decision was made on my application to Northwestern. Just a little background, this has been my dream school for a long, long time. I was rejected. I'm okay with it, as I was not really expecting to get in. Part of me thought I had a shot at the waitlist, but I guess not. Oh well...they invented the saying "you win some, you lose some" for a reason right?
2/3/2006--I received a fairly interesting letter from Fordham today. They're holding my application due to a large amount of applications similar to mine, but will offer me admission this spring pending my continued interest. I dont' exactly get it, or know what to put as the decision, but I'm going with deferred and accepted.
I also received a letter from Georgetown today...DENIED. Things started off so well-what happened!!?? No, this is not a surprising outcome, especially after my results at GW. It's cool though. Given my career interests I had started to question how good of a fit attending school in D.C. would be anyhow.
2/7/2006--Hello Boston...where are you?? :)
2/8/2006--I withdrew my application from George Washington today...to all my former fellow waitlisters-Good Luck!
