So, it's most likely that I will end up in Sacramento for fall, although I am still sending a LOCI to W&M just in case. I would be very excited to attend either school. I'll go back to writing now...
Two big decisions came in the mail today: rejection from Loyola (that erases any possibilities of a Loyola or McGeorge decision on my part), and a waitlist at William & Mary. While I'm not completely ecstatic about getting a WL, I do like the fact that I might still be able to get in. W&M is soooo dreamy hahaha. I don't know, I just have been infatuated with that school throughout the whole process, so boo on not getting an acceptance but yay on keepin' the hope alive!
A very nice McGeorge 1L called me a few days ago and asked me if I had any questions. That was a very nice gesture! He answered a lot of my questions, although I realized that I forgot to ask a couple of questions.
I'm still waiting on a few more schools bahhhhhh.
The bad news continues as I found out about Davis via status check.
So UCLA, Berkeley and Hastings decided it would be a good idea for me to receive their rejection letters all at the same day. It's probably some UC thing but still. ugh.
I just got back from a 3-week vacation and I knew there were a few decision letters waiting for me when I get back... In at Pacific, finally I got in somewhere hahaha. It's not surprising to me, but it's nice to see an admittance letter after so many rejection letters. What is unexpected is that I got in with Honors and a Dean's scholarship, so that was a nice package :)
I'm changing my Hastings app to be a LEOP app. I just finished the supplemental essays, and I'm sending it as soon as I can.
My Hastings ED app got deferred to the regular applications. LSN doesn't really have a "deferred" option on the app status, so I left it as is. Not the best of results, but not the worst, so I still have a chance. I expected this, really. We'll see what happens.
It's been quiet in the law school front lately... I know it hasn't been long since Fordham's decision, but once I found out of one, I've been anxious to hear the other schools, especially since my cycle started with a denial.
Checked my online status for Fordham... and found out I've been rejected.
George Mason sent me an e-mail saying I forgot to file the Virginia In-State Tuition form... even though I'm Californian, not a Virginia resident and wasn't planning on filing for in-state tuition haha. Thought that was kinda funny. I have to call them on Monday.
I got mild food poisoning and it sucks :(
Complete at William & Mary. I didn't know they're not a rolling admissions school, or maybe I just assumed that they are and didn't even bother to verify it. I haven't even gotten a notification from UCLA saying they got my app, but LSAC says they're sent. Bah to them.
Went complete at Hastings and Pacific on a few days ago via e-mail.
Decided to not retake in December, because I don't think I'll be ready to significantly raise my LSAT by then. I'm way too busy with work and school combo. So, I'll just see how this cycle works out for me, if I think I'll have a decent shot to get into a better school next cycle, I'm retaking in June or October 2009.
Got a fee waiver from William & Mary. It was one of my top choices before I decided to stick with CA schools, but since I got a fee waiver, I might as well apply.
Second LOR is in LSAC, so all of the Reports have been sent out ughh
Got my LSAT score and am terribly disappointed. Retaking in December.
First LOR officially in LSAC.
Submitted apps for Davis, Boalt and Fordham.
I submitted the applications for all the schools except Boalt and Davis, because I can't finish those two apps for a stupid reason. I felt a really weird feeling in my stomach when I clicked "submit." Ew.
Taking the LSAT tomorrow... strangely calm. I've been consistently scoring a 164 (like four out of six PTs), so hopefully I can at least match that during the real thing. I'll be satisfied with a 164. Not ecstatic, but satisfied.
Created account to keep track of schools i'm planning to apply to coming fall. perhaps i'm overreaching my potential here, so i might add in other schools later. my confidence is crushed from learning LSDAS' GPA calculations two days ago. so i gotta buckle down and bust my ass to compensate with my LSAT. taking a prep course with TPR right now.
