Additional info & updates

My thoughts on law school admissions can be summed up nicely by the wit and wisdom of Mr. George Costanza:

I don't want hope. Hope is killing me. My dream is to become hopeless. When you're hopeless, you dont' care. And when you don't care, that indifference makes you attractive.

Canceled Sept. 06 LSAT. Guess I'll just have to roll the dice with my 157. Good luck to everyone else.

12/05/06
Got my first acceptance today! In at Texas Wesleyan by email. Relief is the word that best describes my feelings.

12/08/06
Received official acceptance letter from Wesleyan with $10,000 per year scholarship.

12/11/06
In at OU! Deposit required by 1/16? I'm probably gonna ask for an extension.

12/12/06
Deferred to general applicant pool by UT. Not really sure why. I was expecting them to flat out reject my sorry ass.

12/17/06
"Merit tuition waiver" sent by OU. If I stay a non-resident they'll give $3k per year. If I become a resident, the waiver is withdrawn. It's still much cheaper to get residency and lose the waiver. So, basiscally 3k for the first year.

12/19/06
UH Status Checker changed to Decision Mailed.

12/23/06
Waitlisted at Houston. This sucks a lot.

1/31/07
Deferred at SMU.

It seems as if applying EA has been pretty pointless for me.
The tally: Deferred. Waitlisted. Deferred. Waitlisted.

2/8/07
Rejected by UT. No surprise there.
In at Texas Tech. $6k per year, renewable if I stay in the top half.

3/8/07
Waitlisted at Colorado. Meh

3/12/07
Waitlisted at Baylor. Sort of. Waitlisted for Fall 2007 but accepted to Spring 2008 as long as I "reactivate" my application by July. That's cool

Looks like I'm the first person on lsn to be WL'd at Baylor....HIGH FIVE!

3/20/07
Rejected by UF. Not exactly a dream crusher, but still disappointing.

4/10/07
Got the official acceptance letter in the mail from Baylor for admission to the spring 2008 class

4/27/07
Accepted to SMU by phone. Awesome

6/3/07
The die is cast. I'm headed to SMU

Looks like are numbers aren't too much different, (yours are a little higher than mine) and we're applying to a lot of the same schools. Good luck on the Sept. LSAT and the whole application process!

Target Schools
Monday, September 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

My target schools are SMU, Univeristy of Houston, Penn State, and University of Maimi, maybe Florida. Sorry about the LSAT not going as well as you were hoping, you might have done better than you think.

Open Question
Tuesday, September 05 2006 at 08:00 PM

If my LSAC report is sent to a school along with all their required materials and they send me an "application received" email should I assume it is complete or wait for another email?

Congrats
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

...on your first acceptance. I am sure many more will be coming your way!

UT notified me by email just after midnight on monday, so technically early tuesday morning. My online status checker also changed immediately.

UT
Monday, September 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on being deferred UT! I got deferred today too, and i am really in shock lol. Who knows maybe we'll end up at the same place OU or maybe even UT, hey it couldddd happen :)

UH
Sunday, January 07 2007 at 07:00 PM

any clue on why you were waitlisted at U of H? We have somewhat similar numbers and i'm really hoping to get in!

You're smarter than I
Friday, January 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

I wish I had cancelled my Sept 06 LSAT, worse mocve I ever made was retaking it!

hey man did your online status checker ever change for Baylor? Im desperately waitiing for them to answer me and still nothing on the status checker.

Re: baylor
Tuesday, September 05 2006 at 08:00 PM

yeah, it changed at some point but I stopped looking at it a month ago so I don't know when exactly. It did say decision mailed w/in 10 bus. days of 3/8 fwiw

UH again
Sunday, January 07 2007 at 07:00 PM

have you heard anything from UH waitlist? i got waitlisted as well... are you sendng updated information in?

UH
Tuesday, September 05 2006 at 08:00 PM

Well, I haven't heard a thing since being WL'd. It's weird too that they didn't ask me to send more info. But I changed jobs in january so I'll be sending them an updated resume shortly. That's about all I got. Have you sent anything?

Baylor
Tuesday, February 06 2007 at 07:00 PM

I'm trying to get into Baylor, too. Did you have to check another box on your app to be considered for Spring 2008 or did you just have that offered to you? Is Baylor your top choice?

congrats!
Tuesday, May 09 2006 at 08:00 PM

congrats on SMU! so, are you going to end up there with us in the fall?

UH
Tuesday, May 09 2006 at 08:00 PM

I'm sure you'd do fine if you end up at UH, but i'm hoping you end up at SMU. yay LSD!
