It looks as though we are applying to many of the same schools! (Though I am slightly guilty of "carpetbombing".) Good luck during this cycle!

No joints
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

hey krysrox, No joint degrees. I looked into a few schools that had them (Syracuse had a joint JD/MS Communications) but then I thought, do I really want to live where it snows 100+ inches a year? :)

Thanks!
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thanks Army2Law, I just had an official visit at Michigan today, which went very well. Got to sit in on 2 classes. Also visited Wisconsin earlier this month. Both nice but I have fingers crossed very hard for U-M! Best of luck to you too!

good luck
Monday, October 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

we have slightly similar and schools, and i currently go to msu, so i just thought i would say good luck!! it looks like you've chosen a proper mix of target/reach. let me know what you think of my chances.

thank you!
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

thx crossmyfingers, you fellow Spartan you ... Good luck with Wisconsin! I visited there first w/e of November and their facility is very nice -- also got to sit in on a class which was fun. Didn't get to spend a lot of time in Madison but it seems like a cool town. I hear it described as 'the best of Ann Arbor + best of Lansing area + two lakes.' hard to argue with that! :)

Lol..
Wednesday, August 31 2005 at 08:00 PM

yes we are practically applying to all the same schools. I was going to apply to College of William and Mary as well, but some stats I looked at gave me no chance so I decided not to. I hope you get into Michigan as well. It would be cool to be classmates!!

Congrats
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

on your acceptance!! I took the LSAT today and so I will see what I get. I think your chances at WM are pretty good. It was my GPA that was letting me down there and frankly I don't have the $$ to take a risk on a school i'm not really that into!!

Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

I sent your response back to you email. Thanks on the heads up concerning MSU...

Have you...
Thursday, September 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

visited Indiana - Bloomington? I'm really interested in that school. If so, wha

sorry...
Thursday, September 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

what did you think?

Wayne State
Wednesday, August 31 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Wayne State.

Congrats on WSU!
Wednesday, October 26 2005 at 08:00 PM

Oh man, my heart is pounding now that I know they are already sending out letters...did you apply FT or PT?

Congrats on WSU!

Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

...on MSU. I have not heard anything from UM, but then again I am not really expecting good news... I am more concerned on why I have not heard back from UofWI...

so about
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

Michigan. At least it wasn't a rejection,

hey
Monday, November 07 2005 at 07:00 PM

I figured I would respond to your comment here instead of my own profile since you'd be more likely to see it. No, I'm not from the midwest but I am in LOVE with Chicago and really want to practice there, so I figured I'd stick to the surrounding areas. Ann Arbor is one of my favorite college cities and would kill to get into Umich (although that's not gonna happen). The east and west coasts just aren't my scene and while I love New Orleans (where I've lived for the past 6 years) I'm ready to head out elsewhere. Good luck with all your apps! I'll keep tabs on your page.

hey
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

good luck with Michigan. We are LSAT twins.

Response to your post on my board
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the congrats. I sent you an email with my top choices and explinations. The answer would have been too long to put here. Here's to the new year and to many more acceptances! v/r

Wayne
Wednesday, October 26 2005 at 08:00 PM

Yep, Wayne has really been the goal all along, mostly because I wanted to keep working when I am and go to school in the evening, and I plan to stay in Michigan so it was the most ideal situation for me

Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

did you get any scholarship info from MSU? Do you know when they will let you know?

Thanks
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

for letting me know. I really want to hear from a school soon, hehe

Wayne State
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

Do you know anything about scholarship at Wayne State?

Sorry...
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

...about WI. I received my first ding the other day as well - from OSU...Damn buckeyes!.

Yup, Its True...
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

...I was told by my wife last night (I am visiting Minneapolis rignt now) that I received the dreaded "thin" letter from UofMI. It really hasn't hit me yet because I have not seen the letter. Hopefully you do not suffer the same fate as I.

Thanks
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

so much. I have heard some good things about MSU, but their tuition is quite high, I would need to get some sort of $$ from them to go there. Do you know anything else about the school?

lol
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thanks, I hope to get in as well. I am Queen of the waitlist right now, lol. Good Luck with UMich as well.

MSU
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

didn't they say we would hear about money by 02/15? does this mean we most probably have none? le sigh

OMG
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

you are sooo right. I am so fed up of getting the mail seeing MSU and thinking this is it this is it. Please God let it be some $$$ and it's about the admit day or how great the school is and how much they want me to come. Stop sending that junk already and tell me whether I am getting any MOOLA, lol It sounds so crass but that will really be a big factor in my decision to go there!! only 2 more days until the 15th!! And I am so sorry about U Michigan. I know what the dream feels like!!

MSU
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for calling about that, it is killing me. I hope after all this that we both get something!!! I guess I am not going to see it in my mail today though, sigh. Maybe i'll call and see if I can get it out of them.

MSU
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

I didn't get a penny from them, I called them and asked. She looked up my file and told me that I was below the index to get anything so I doubt I will be going there in the fall. Way to expensive for me.

$$
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

I think u will get $$ from them, my gpa that they have is lower than yours and they said I missed it by 1 index point. My new transcripts that are being sent by LSAC show a higher gpa but they told me they may not even look at that. They said no-one with below a 156 is getting any money either. Oh well, I have some serious thinking to do. Good Luck with the $$$, I am pretty confident you will get some!!!!

thanks
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

for the comment on my blog!! I just don't know if it is too late to apply. Good Luck with the $$, let me know how much you get!!

I
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

was thinking of UDetroit as well, but I don't know if I would like the area. I saw some pics online and it didn't seem like me. Denver now is so picturesque but I can't justify the additional app fee and LSDAS fee with so many other apps pending. Plus I don't love it so much that I just need to apply, you know!! lol So did you find out how much $$$ you are getting yet from MSU?? Good Luck with William and Mary, I hope you get in!!

Indiana
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

I haven't gotten the official letter as yet but I called them about visiting and she was kinda non-commital and didn't set up a visit so you don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to know that means REJECTION. And Florida, ha, not much to say about the Harvard of the south, haha So it looks like it is going to be MSU for you huh? Cool, I would like to go there but no moola ;-(

Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

Can you tell me anything about your Wayne State Scholarship? E-mail notification, snail mail.. when did you receive it, etc. etc. thanks!

Michigan
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

I would so love to get in there but I am thinking that I should retake LSAT if I really want a good shot, hahaha. I am so surprised that I didn't even get a dime at MSU. The more I hear about it the more I would have liked to attend, oh well. I bet it feels good to have your decision made, I will def keep in touch.

Congrats on choosing MSU!
Sunday, January 22 2006 at 07:00 PM

MSU is not my top choice right now, but that might change with school visits and rejection letters. No money, unfortunately :( MSU is definitely in the running, though, because they have so much desire to improve. In five years, I think MSU will be well-nestled in the top 100...

Congrats...
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

...on making your decision. I have yet to hear from either Wayne State or MSU concerning FA, which is a significant factor in my decision process. Without some kind of FA, I will probably go to Minn or Richmond. The way you received the FA offer from Wayne State is kind of funny. The same thing happened with me an Hamline. Like you the offer would not have enticed me to attend. Best of luck at MSU and keep in touch! We "old" people have to stick together!

Thank-You
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

my friend. As of right now Drake and Case are tied. Drake due to $$ and Case because they have some programs I really like, plus they may give me some $$$. The Michigan e-mail actuallt stung less than I thought. It was a dream, much in the way that me marrying George Clooney is a dream, lol Let's def keep in touch!!

hey!
Sunday, October 02 2005 at 08:00 PM

When/how did you hear from Wayne about scholarship money?

MSU
Monday, February 06 2006 at 07:00 PM

I visited MSU last week and it looks like I'm headed there too... Also congrats on the scholarship, future classmate! =)

Thanks
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

so much. I am feeling really blessed with these different acceptances and offers. It would be soo cool if MSU gave me $$ and we could be classmates, however I don't think MSU wants that, haha

MSU
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

sent me a postcard today saying they got my application. Weird!! ;0(

Thanks
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

I was really happy about Illinois and the $$. It's funny cos MSU started so strong and now I haven't heard a thing from them in ages. I may have to withdraw soon if they still don't offer up a dime,.

Thanks
Monday, October 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

Hi! Thanks for the encouragement on my profile. Yup, I'm going to Michigan. I already sent them my seat deposit but finally withdrew from everything else today :)
