Additional info & updates

12/11 - thinking of applying to a couple of other schools, freak out - no answer from anywhere

12/12 - email from University of Texas in Austin that "the Admissions Committee has decided to hold your file for further consideration with the general applicant pool. Your status as a "hold" should not be viewed as a denial nor an invitation to the waitlist." At least it is not rejection.

12/13 - first rejection - Georgetown. Well I am not surprised. I was not going to apply to but my law advisor said why not to try. Tell you the truth? I am glad to be rejected because I guess the studying there is very competitive and I don't believe it would be good for me, or more exactly, for my grades. Another 11 schools to go. I guess not in December, so just RELAX and wait for Christmas and New Year.

12/14 - I didn't survive the pressure of my first rejection and decided to apply to two other schools. Texas Wesleyan is my nice safe school on the list, plus I like Fort Worth, TX.

12-20 Another "Deferred" on my list - University of Florida. I don't know what for to send me such type of email as they did, if I didn't apply for early decision (action etc.)?

2007
01-16 Two news at the same day - one is bad, another one is good. To my great dissapointment Arizona State didn't consider me as a good applicant for their school and rejected me. I thought I had a lot of chances there. However, Nebraska liked me. Now I am safe, I have one acceptance on account.

01-24 I don't think I have a good begining. Another rejection. This time Kentucky. What didn't they like?? Frustraited!

02-03 University of Houston acceptance. YES!!!

02-05 my balance in rejections-acceptances process was unpardonably distracted by rejection from Southern Methodist University. Well, to say I am upset would be a lie, because their tuition is not so affordable. At least those guys didn't make me to read all letter, but made my life easier with the straight beginning of the letter with words "I am sorry". I didnt read the rest, those three words told me the story. Good luck to me and everybody as well.

02-07 Just this morning I was checking my account and noticed that I applied to Washington University as Early Action that means they promissed to reply not later than Feb.5. "Well," I thought. "Get ready to get another rejections on your mailbox." But I was correct only a half way. Yes, I did get a letter from Washington, but no - it was not a rejection, just deferral. Good news? At least for now.

02-20 if you see thin and tiny envelope in your mailbox with a name of a law school, wait for rejection! University of Washington is out of my list.

03-26 Next rejection - University of Arizona. Three left to go.

04-03 Two schools are left in my waiting list - UT and DU. I know I will be rejected from UT. It is only a matter of time. But I am still wonder about DU - yes or not? Funny, but I considered that school as not-so-high-to-reach.

04-04 Waitlisted by UT? Wow, I was expecting a rejection. DU is the only one to go.

04-06 Waitlisted in DU??!!! You are kidding me! I WITHDRAW!
and YES MY ADMISSION WORRIES ARE OVER!!!

I GO TO UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO SCHOOL OF LAW IN BOULDER - THE SCHOOL OF MY DREAM

Yea thats why I really wanted to go. I had a ridiculous co-pay for a medical procedure the next day that I wasn't expecting, so 60 dollars wasn't worth a new app. I was super interested in their program, oh well. One of my favorite professors graduated from UNL and loved it

Thanks

Selvi, Thanks for the kind words. Rejections are definetely not fun to get, but unfortunately they are part of this whole process(for some people). Good luck with the rest of you applications, and congrats on you Nebraska acceptance!

Hey congrats on Nebraska! The more I look into it the more I am considering it. The possibility of In-State tution is attractive. Hope the rest of the cycle goes well for you, and who knows... maybe we'll end up as corn-huskers!
