much better than LSP told me i would do. i honestly believe this is due to my extracurriculars and career goals, which i will update once my decision is finalized.

Additional info & updates

i only applied to schools whose programs i liked and where i could see myself going.

3 - would like to go!
2 - would really like to go!
1 - would absolutely love to go!

03/16 - finally under review at daivs...

03/22 - decision letter mailed from santa clara via status check. visited hastings and really liked it, especially since they got rid of their only 10% get A's curve.

03/26 - got back from spring break to find santa clara and lewis & clark acceptances waiting for me in the mail! emery merit scholarship from scu of $17,000 (renewable if in top 25%) and a letter from l&c saying my app will be reviewed again in april to award scholarship funds once they free up as people withdraw their acceptances. the l&c status check never changed from application complete.

03/30 - rejected from wustl via e-mail. status check never changed from application complete.

04/12 - in at temple via status check.

04/14 - rejected from hastings via snail mail.

04/16 - acceptance letter from temple. $45,000 over 3 years provided a 2.5 gpa. better chance of renewal for this one than santa clara.

04/27 - e-mail from USF letting me know i qualify for admission and asking if i am still interested. a scholarship could make a huge difference, so said yes. rejected from BC via snail mail.

04/29 - e-mail from emory removing me from their waitlist. that's what i get for never sending in a LOCI. i really hope this all starts to wrap up soon!

04/30 - rejected from columbia via snail mail. no surprise there. waiting on (hopefully) good news from davis or colorado. those two have trump power over my acceptances thus far. i love each of their programs, and their costs aren't too bad, even w/o scholarships (which i am not expecting).

05/10 - in at colorado!!! got an e-mail informing me my acceptance packet was sent today.

05/17 - rejected from vanderbilt via snail mail. seriously davis, what is up? will be visiting boulder in a couple weeks. very excited about that!

05/19 - finally heard from everyone! as you may have noticed, i have removed the schools where i have been waitlisted from my list.

06/15 - got a call from maryland asking if i was still interested in attending their school. unfortunately i then lost service, and had to call them the next day from mexico to let them know i was. i was told my admission letter should be sent within the next few days.

thanks for your comment! I decided to write an addendum because I felt that the strongest point of my application was my GPA (this was before I knew about the LSDAS GPA discrepancy). So when I found out about the drop, i felt that I should explain it with the hope that adcoms would look at the higher GPA as a better representation of me as a student. It really made me angry that a high school course followed me that far, but i guess that's the way it goes. I wish you the best of luck in admissions!

Thank you!

Thanks, you have no idea how much I appreciate your comment. It's really refreshing to know there are some people on here who get that sometimes you just need to do what will make you happy. I guess for some people not having debt and always having a lot of money will make them happy, but I really don't mind being on a strict budget for three years if it means I can go to the best school for me. Seattle really was the best option - not extraordinarily pricey relative to other schools, and still ranked which given my LSAT I was happy to have been accepted to so many Top 100 schools (bottom of the top 100, but still, happy none-the-less!) Are you leaning towards a particular school at this point?

Ah, well, who knows. Your numbers are a bit better than mine so maybe you'll have better luck!

Monday, June 29 2009 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! I hope you get good news from the rest of your schools too!

Wednesday, March 03 2010 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! Any idea where you are going yet?

Wednesday, March 03 2010 at 07:00 PM

Well, good luck with your decision, sounds like a tough one! I also seriously considered Santa Clara. I recommend going into downtown when you go see Lewis and Clark. Portland really blew me away and made my decision easy!

Saturday, January 09 2010 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the well wishes! We'll see. If hastings doesn't bite, there's the good possibility Davis or maybe W&M do... By the time this is over, it will be a LONG cycle.

thanks for your comment and advice! Still contemplating, but hopefully I make the right decision. Congrats on all ur acceptances

Hi don't know if you still look here but we are numbers twins and I REALLY want to go to boulder.. did you write an addendum for your grades? or have anything outstanding that you think really gave you a push?
