I'm not sure if it's even complete...I haven't checked with them. I only assume it is because I finished my app on Dec. 9th and the report was sent out on the 11th. I should probably check with all of the schools who haven't contacted me just to make sure. As far as our chances, the 25th percentile is like 163 or 164 for GW, so I don't think I have the greatest chance. Sure, my GPA is good, but they only accepted about 1/3 of those with similar numbers last year.
Temple sent me an email saying they received my application and ordered my report. I am actually not sure if this means I'm complete, but it seemed that way from the email. If you didn't get an email, check your spam folder because the fee waiver I received from them was in mine. Good luck to you too.
I went complete on November 22. Thanks a lot. Good luck on your cycle! Take care.
well two things about Temple .. one they started reviewing my app. before all my letters came in..and I'm not 100% sure if they read all my LORs... secondly..I think they wanna keep their numbers low figuring I might not even add my name to the list...because in the letter it basically says if I write a a short essay saying how much I want to go to Temple it will help...so I assume that's their angle.. good luck though! and Depaul is about half tuition I believe..
I'm surprised I heard from them as quickly as I did. They sent me an email and they're sending the official acceptance in the mail. Good luck to you and I hope you hear back from them soon.
I am out of state but under Ohio Law if my wife gets a full time job I get full in state tuition from the first year. So combining that with a 10K scholarship means I pay about 9K in tutition at Cincinnati.
Any thoughts on our chances for GW (we are pretty much numbers twins). Did you apply FT or PT? It looks like a few 162 people have already gotten in, hopefully we can be as lucky!
Same thing happened to me. Received acceptance in the mail on Saturday and an e-mail today from Admissions notifying me that my application is complete...
Hi, Sorry for the late response to your note. I applied to GW part time and got in with my numbers. I expected to get in. Its also my undergrad university and my recommendations were very good. Full time, I was told, would have been unlikely with my numbers.
Hey, thanks. I know that it has certainly been a long time for them. I think that a lot of people can start to expect some action now, because their final day for receiving applications was yesterday. Best of luck to you.
Don't be fooled by rankings. Kent is RANKED as a T-100 school, but the quality of an education you get there outright SUCKS. You'd get a much better one at UNLV. Heck, you can get a better education at Thomas Cooley than you can at Kent. Kent is an outright crappy school that is way overrated and just wants students to fail out. Their professors pick and choose who they want to pass and fail through things such as "participation" which they claim can improve your grade if you participate, when in reality, they only use that to "bump up grades" for their favorite students. So if you're a favorite, then you'll do just fine. If you're not, then kiss any reasonable opportunities goodbye. I would avoid Kent like the plague. I attend there now and can't wait to transfer out. At least I'll get decent, non-biased education elsewhere with REAL grades that I've earned, not have my grades based upon someone else's performance. If you're not an English major, you're not going to do well there, either.
Dont pay much attention to the previous post. The girl should blame herself for bad grades, but not Chicago-Kent. You can visit my page and see what she wrote about John Marshall Law School. It seems to me that the problem is not with quality of education at Kent, but inability of one particular person to go through the difficulties of 1L.
Wow. As for patten, congrats on narrowing down your list. Best of luck.
Actually, all I am doing is offering information. I am not the only person at Kent who feels this way. And as I have stated in other posts, they are in the midst of different lawsuits. Are reasonable schools involved in lawsuits? Perhaps. But Kent is quite overrated and all I was doing was offering an opinion. Although the lawsuit is a FACT, not an opinion. I'm not trying to turn anyone off from Kent, but one of the best ways to get to know a law school is to talk to other students from that law school. There are other students at Kent who feel the exact same way I do. And by the way, those of you who state that my grades are simply due to other problems, some of you have no business talking. I don't see some of you with two Bachelor's and a Master's Degree and the levels of Community Service I have. So you probably got lucky on one test. Fine. But there is no reason to state not to pay attention, because everyone is entitled to an opinion. Whether you like it or not. As far as your post to me patten, I am not trying to "turn anyone off" from Kent. I only share my experiences and offered an opinion. I could go through several examples, but was only offering an opinion. If you want to discuss this further, then you can feel free to e-mail me.
I kind of hinted in my personal statement that I would attend there if they accepted me, though I tried to tailor each personal statement for each application to that effect. I'm certainly glad I got accepted to BYU, b/c I've only heard bad news from the other top 40 schools I applied to. BYU was always my #1 choice, though.
I just wanted to add that you didn't offend me with your post at all. I was simply trying to respond to other postings as well as your own. Because these people who have posted negative comments about me don't even know me and they obviously either don't know how to read or don't have the background information to make a knowledgeable decision. Like I said, you can feel free to contact me in the future if you would like any other information I have based upon personal experiences. But I am not offended by talking about my experiences. My experiences, along with my opinions, are simply designed to provide information. At least I don't cuss or use this website and discussion group inappropriately like some people. Whatever happens, I wish you the best of luck as well. Take care.
Yeah, I'm getting a little impatient with them, especially since I applied in early December and I live right down the road from them. I don't know what to think, I know they've been sending out rejections, so it's not looking great.
I hope to get into BYU but I am not betting on it. You have better odds with a higher LSAT and GPA along with your engineering background.
hey Patten, yeah, i wrote them a letter. while its generous of them, i'd like a bit more :) what's going on with your decision?
I applied at end of october, and went complete ~1 month later, and got deferred at month after that, and just recently pushed to the waitlist (as i am most places). I still don't think i'll get in, if you look at everyone else's scores they waitlisted and they are a small class
hahah I really dont hold out hope...you never know though
Sorry it took so long to answer. The scholarship offer was postmarked April 17. I didn't write them asking for money, it just came. I have not yet received a financial aid package.
have no idea. but i decided on columbia and withdrew. good luck!
I sure hope it means they're deliberating on our apps and not just too busy to send out our rejections! They are only half way through their rejections though, last year they rejected 137, and this year they're only up to 55 so far. They did reject the most people in April, but it looks like they'll have to move that to May this year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but at this point I'd be pleasantly surprised with a waitlist. Good luck to us!
Wait listed and then rejected at BYU? How did you hear? What did they say? Why did they reject you so early in the wait list cycle? Please provide all the info you can. Thanks!
I didn't ask for the scholarship it just came, it is called a technology Merit Scholarship. I had asked for an extension on my seat deposit and they gave it to me, then a week later the scholarship came and I was told I had to send in my seat deposit right away to accept the scholarship. I think asking for the extension helped, because your numbers are a little bit better than mine. Did you already send in a seat deposit?
My EFC was a few hundred below 6k
That is good you got a scholarship to the U. I am not sure if you can stay a wait list but I would think you could. I would call and ask just to be sure.
I don't see anything wrong with accepting the scholarship from the U and remaining on GW's wait list. You need to do what is best for you. Even if you back out in July they still can give the scholarship to another student. If I still had a spot on the BYU wait list I would remain on the list and send the U my money.
Yeah, I'm doing IP law. I'm also aware that some of the schools I've applied to are possibly out of reach (ie, GW), but I figured I'd apply for the heck of it. Good luck on your apps.
