Additional info & updates

8/6/09: 2 days before I am set to move up to Athens, I get a call from Vandy and I am in. After a hard decision, I turned them down. Too late in the game.

6/8/09: All set to go to UGA. Maintaining slim hope for GW but no hope for Vanderbilt as I was basically told that their "class has shaped up basically how they like it".

4/10/09: Rejected at UNC via snail mail. I see that I am one of the first so I am truly honored. They are crazy with OOS. My friend with a 168 and a 4.0 was waitlisted.....

4/9/09: Withdrew from Illinois. Great school but too expensive.

4/1/09: Withdrew from Ohio State. Good school but not enough scholarship money and hard to get in state tuition.

3/28/09:
Right now my top two are William and Mary and UGA. UGA is cheaper, W&M is a pretty campus and a nice change of pace. Hmmmmm....

Received Rejection from Emory via small letter. Expected, but first rejection does suck. On my way to UGA admitted student day.

3/16/09: Vistited William and Mary over the weekend and loved it. It is a beautiful campus and the law library is brand new.

2/19/09: Financial aid from Ohio State. Not enough and I will likely withdraw soon.

2/5/09: JUST received an acceptance email from Illinois. SWEEEET. Also was told about the 10k / year scholarship, which I think is pretty generous with my numbers being less than their medians.

Also decided to put the rest of the schools I have applied to up.

2/2/09: Called GW today and found out I have been waitlisted. 3-0-2 record, not too bad.... 3 more schools to go.

1/28/09: I am absolutely floored. I have not seen many Waitlists for Vandy and was expecting either a rejection or acceptance(most likely a rejection). I know it is EXTREMELY hard to get off waitlists but the impossible only takes a little time to achieve. Pretty good day...

1/26/09: I was accepted at William and Mary with a $5,000 per year scholarship. Very attractive school. Nice surprise considering I sent in my application later on in the process. No word on Vandy....

1/23/09: Vanderbilt Decision Mailed out today... ahhhhhh

Let me know if you have any questions.

i appreciate the congrats. and yes, when its all said and done i expect to consider UGA very strongly. its great to hear your friend enjoyed it. i'm really leaning toward heading south for law school for a change of scenery lol. good luck with your schools and congrats on UGA yourself!

Were you in review at Illinois for pretty long, considering you went complete in early January? Congratulations on getting in there, by the way!! I'm super jealous. :)

Thank you!
