The Cardozo acceptance was for the Spring entry program, starting in January, 2008.
Cardozo scholarship was per year and contingent on rank.
Georgetown PT is my top choice, and I was deferred. I was expecting a rejection though, so it's better than that. How do I turn this deferral into an accept!?
12/19/2007 - Still haven't recieved anything from UIUC, letter was supposed to have been mailed on the 12th.....
Might I be the first rejection? !
12/19/2007 - Missed a call from the Asst. Dean of Admissions at George Mason. I called back and she congratulated me on my acceptance. It was awkward to hear the congratulations, she had obviously called many people and seemed very tired, I hope she gets a raise!
12/20/2007 - Illinois acceptance came via mail today. 10x12 envelope with a few sheets. $15k per year scholarship included! This is great news, but I pretty sure I will not be able to make it to Illinois. I will withdraw sometime in January after thinking a little harder about it .
12/20/2007 - I am getting worried about Fordham. I applied on the last day for EA, so I assume I am EA, and I was complete a while ago, but have not heard a thing. Someone suggested calling them.... but I don't like to call admissions offices. I think I might send them an email.
12/21/2007 - UIUC form-type email notifying me of acceptance, and apologizing for doing so via email. The email also mentions that they will have different admitted student events for people from different regions.....
I don't know, but I am liking UIUC more and more everyday!
12/22/2007 - Received a big envelope from Mason with a standard congratulator note and a some strange honor code documentation !?
Also got a postcard from GWU, probably via CRS, telling me to apply. They have great timing, I applied the night before !
12/24/2007 - Received a Cornell deferral in the mail today. It was dated December 21st, oddly enough, however, my status checker changed to decision today. I was expecting either a reject or a deferral so I am not upset, but the prospect of waiting another few months for a reject are upsetting. I will send them my Letter Of Continued Interest on Wednesday.
Not sure if this of interest to anyone who is not crazy but... I noticed that the Cornell Deferral was on much cheaper paper stock than the Georgetown one. It seemed to be standard 20lb 95 brightness stock with a bonded Cornell logo, whereas the Georgetown one was on heavier partially cotton based stock.
12/25/2007 - Merry Christmas!
Hope everyone is having a great holiday!
01/01/2008 - Happy New Year! Let's hope it brings us all a lot of acceptances.
Anyone have any suggestions on whether or not to send GULC a letter of continued interest? I wouldn't be able to highlight much in it other than the fact that I really, really want to go there, and that I plan on visiting DC this month.
01/09/08 - Little Postcard from George Washingtion U. saying that I am now complete. It was postmarked on 01/07/08. That was pretty quick considering the only processed my LSAC report on the 2nd. I hope the decision is just as quick, whatever it may be.....
01/10/2008 - That was quick! It appears that I have been accepted at GWU. I'm not sure yet, but I can log on to the admitted students site and from what I hear, that means that I'm in. Now I have to find out whether I got into the FT, or PT program.....
I assume, with the decision coming this quick, that it was the PT program, since I'm 25GPA/75LSAT splitter for the FT division....
01/15/08 - Rejected at Boalt and NU. I was expecting rejections from both schools, but felt like sending them a donation (application fee).
I am a bit surprised, however, that NU does not send out paper rejections. I like to save the rejections and keep them in a file. Strange, I know, but still it does seem really cheap on NU's part.
01/16/2008 - Email from Dean Richards congratulating me on my acceptace to the full time division of George Washington Law School!. I applied both PT/FT, and did not think I would get in FT.
GWU, is my top choice of the schools I have been accepted at so far.
01/17/2008 - I applied to NYU for fun. I have always dreamed of going there and I thought I might apply. I was pretty sure that I would be rejected, but "Hey you never know!" . In this case that means NO. :)
BTW: The letter was postmarked 01/11 and arrive here in NJ on 01/17. That was slow......
01/22/2008 - Fordham Status finally updated only to show "2nd evaluation" deferral-type decision :(
02/07/2008 - Back to complete at GULC. :gulp: :)
02/08/2008 - Descision again at GULC. That was quick! I'm not sure what to make of it....
It might be that they have already filled thier PT spots, and either instantly WL'd or rejected me. :( On the other hand, maybe they had me marked as presumptive admit, and since they didn't recieve as many well qualified applicants as they wanted, they just accepted me after opening my file....
The first scenario sounds more likely though.....
02/11/2009 - And it was correct, at least partly. Recieved the GULC decision today. Regular WL, the letter makes sure to point out that it is the regular WL and not the preferred one.... :(
02-22-08 - Never recieved a complete notice from Brooklyn, but recieve a nice little email stating that I was accepted on Friday. It was snowing hard when they sent it and I was actually just leaving to get some Pizza in Brooklyn ! :)
02-25-2008 - Columbia rejection postmarked on 02/22/2008. It was expected, but I am a gambler and thus had to try! I didn't especially like the wording of the rejection, but they did use very nice paper stock... I believe it is 100% cotton.
Brooklyn flooded me with some emails today, and two letters of external scholarships they thought I might qualify for. No offical acceptance letter yet though.
03-15-2008: $20k a year from Brooklyn. I hate myself for feeling like I should have received more, but I do. Brooklyn is a good school and it's close, but I don't think it compares to GWU, UIUC, or, on some level, even to GMU. I hope they do increase the offer.....
