Additional info & updates

so, i applied last year with limited success
then, i studied extensively for the lsat, raising my score 15 points
my score may not impress some, but i'm happy with my improvement and believe all of my factors combined will get me into some fantastic schools. its a gamble...so here we go...

12/17--i hate waiting! under review at : Virginia, Berkeley, WashU, Wisconson, Notre Dame...waiting for completion; Michigan and penn; just complete; william and mary...."other": Cornell...no EA this year....

12/23 Complete everywhere except for 1st school i applied to.....lol. 9/10 are ready to go.

01/06/10 FINALLY complete at Cornell. I swear I'd walk over HOT coals to get in there....i just pray there's no "reserve list" this year

01/11/10 Passed initial administrative review at Berkeley....wow, can't be a bad thing from my view. Hopefully a sign of good things to come.

01/14/10 Sad day----first rejection from Virginia. not that i had a good feeling there anyway, but hopefully that is NOT a sign of things to come

1/15/10 Fee waiver to UCLA, seriously? now? ug.

1/26/10 Did my apps get lost? I swear I can hear crickets. Notre Dame any day...very nervous, may overdose on M&Ms soon due to stress eating if i don't start getting some yays or nays soon....

02/04/10 More than a week since my last post and STILL NO WORD. absolutely amazing. Should I call? How do people keep this off of their mind in the meantime?

02/19/10 Held over for Faculty Review again at Berkeley. My husband says God won't let me into law school unless i stick with my commitment to give up fast food for lent. if true, i will be steering clear of Jack in the box and burger king for the next 39 days for sure.....

03/02/10 Rejected at Penn and Michigan. duh. Accepted to Wisconsin via email.....STILL waiting on my tops....but its nice to have one victory under my belt.

03/30/10 Probably one of the best days of my life, in at Notre Dame with scholarship. most likely headed back to Indiana next year. Only waiting on Cornell now.....

Good luck on the NW interview.. About knowing in two weeks.. for Cornell.. did they guarantee that? i wish they would have said the same for me.. im SICK of waiting. I guess thats just part of the game. Good luck !

Thanks for reply!!

Yeah, I'm hoping my softs will pull me through! UCLA is my dream #1. Have you heard of CLEO? www.cleoscholars.org, they have a pre-law summer program for students of color.

Good Luck

Best of luck with your cycle!

Friday, October 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

Goodluck with your cycle! We have similar numbers, work experiences and schools. I hope it all works out for you!!!

Friday, October 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

Goodluck with Cornell! Keep me updated!

Sunday, November 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hope your trip to Ithaca went well! I see we received opposite results from Depaul and Loyola Chicago. Good luck with the rest!

Sunday, November 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Haha, we got the same waitlist email from Denver?! I'm so anxious to hear back from UNM, they are taking forever! Don't you wish it was Sept. or Oct. already and all was said and done?! I sure do!

Sunday, November 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Judging by our cycles so far, I think University of New Mexico is deciding which one of us to waitlist and accepted. Haha, I really hope not! :/ I'm rooting for you with Cornell too!

top choice
Thursday, August 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

my top choice is Northwestern. I've been put on hold there so I'm still holding out. If not Rutgers-Newark seems like it fits me well. And I'm still waiting on Howard and a couple of other VA schools. Still no definite choices outside of NU.

hold notice
Thursday, August 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

I hope to hear back from NU no later than March. I was deferred at Cornell and I should be hearing back from them sometime this month. I plan to make a decision by april 1st. I'm not waiting on any more schools after that. Whomever I hear from by then I'll consider. So hopefully Feb and early March will yield high results.

UNM!!!
Sunday, November 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats!! How did UNM inform you of the decision?

UNM
Thursday, March 05 2009 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on UNM! I may end up there in the fall. Let me know if you need any information about Albuquerque and good luck with the rest of your cycle!

Sunday, November 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hi!! How are you? Do you know where you are headed in the Fall? Still no word on New Mexico for me! I put a deposit down for Depaul, I visited Chicago for the first ever and loved it :)

Monday morning they sent an acceptance E-mail and that afternoon I received a priority mail box. Good luck with the rest of your cycle!

Notre Dame

Yeah, I can't believe it took them that long to reject me. Sorry you are still waiting. Hopefully you will have better luck :) Congrats on UW btw, I am still waiting to hear back from them.

Monday, October 12 2009 at 08:00 PM

I guess I didn't answer your original question. I heard back from ND via USPS.
