Additional info & updates

The "choice" numbers are straight LSAC percentages based solely on my numbers (except Harvard, Northwestern, and Georgetown which do not publish).

9/16/06
- OU Automatically requested my LSAC report.
- Email from Baylor with status check password.
- Email from UofH with status check password.

09/25/06
- OU, Harvard, South Texas, Houston, Baylor, have all requested my report.
- 4 days before the LSAT retake, and I get a nasty cold. Oh well, I am going to see how I feel on Friday, and make a decision. If I do not retake now, I am simply going to have to roll with what I have.

09/29/2006
-Well, it is Friday. I am feeling mostly better, so I am going to take the exam. I think I will be okay.
-Texas Tech requested my LSDAS report today.
-Complete at Houston

10/2/06
-I went ahead and took the LSAT. I have no clue how I did, except they had to move the location of our test center to a 1960s era lecture hall that had tables that would not even hold the entire test book flat. OH WELL.
- Except for UT and Colorado, the rest of the schools to which I applied have requested my report.

10/13/06
-Texas requested my report today (crossing fingers)
-I should have my new LSAT score back in about a week.
- Other than that, no other news from any of the schools. Colorado is now the only school that has not pulled my report. It is just a waiting game at this point; it is all out my hands now.

10/17/06
- I went ahead aand put an app into Georgetown as well. I figure, it's only an application fee.
- 3 more days till LSAT score release, hopefully I did much better.

10/21/2006
-Well, new LSAT score was only one point higher than my last. Oh well. I am not retaking again; it is what it is.

11-08-06
-Letter from Texas Tech!!!! I am going to law school this year!!!!!

11-10-06
-Letter from OU. I am on the waitlist. Not bad I guess considering LSAC only gives me a 36% chance there.

11-14-06
-Email from ASU. They received my application and requested my LSDAS Report.

11-18-06
-Small white envelope from Tulsa with Acceptance letter. Second page in the envelope had the scholarship offer. I was never told I went complete.

11-28-06

12-11-06
-Received my Georgetown Rejection letter today in the mail. White, #10 envelope.

-Standard envelope from SMU. Deferral
-Standard envelope from ASU, denied.

03/19/07
-Rejected for Fall 07 at Baylor, but auto admitted to Spring 08. Via snail mail, regular envelope.

05-01-07

Tech

Tulsa

Scholarship
Wednesday, August 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

How much of the tuition does that cover? Imagine a life after law school without a 6 figure loan?!

Tulsa Tuition
Monday, August 22 2005 at 08:00 PM

I would be left with about 9k a year for tuition. Not too bad.

Scholarship at Tech
Tuesday, May 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

HEy I was just wondering, did you get notification of your scholarship along with acceptance letter. I was accepted at Tech under early decision program, but did not recieve any scholarship. I was jsut wondering if I could expect one to come later.

Tech Scholarship
Monday, August 22 2005 at 08:00 PM

Hi There, JT. Yes, I did get the offer with my acceptance letter but I did not apply ED, so they may work those scholarships differently. I would call or emial Donna Williams; she is very helpful and she should be able to answer you pretty quickly.

Tech
Saturday, May 20 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey, just wondering how you found out about Tech. I applied there as well and our numbers aren't that different. I heard I was complete but nothing else yet. Also when did you hear you were waitlisted at OU, I haven't heard anything from them.

OU and Tech
Monday, August 22 2005 at 08:00 PM

I received a ltter from Tech as well as from OU via snail mail. More info is listed above in the "Additional Information" section.

Georgetown
Monday, November 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hi Colorado. Could you tell what date was on the letter from Georgetown? I have a decision on web since 12/08 but my mail box is empty

Georgetown Letter
Monday, August 22 2005 at 08:00 PM

The Letter came in the mail today....

dont worry
Saturday, December 09 2006 at 07:00 PM

This might not help at all, but I'll be happy if I'm even waitlisted. I got confidence just no patience...

Tulsa
Monday, July 31 2006 at 08:00 PM

If you have any questions about the Tulsa area while you are considering your options, feel free to ask me - I live in Tulsa. Just trying to help where I can.

re: Tulsa
Sunday, December 17 2006 at 07:00 PM
