*****don't like the way the 'SENT' date makes my table look. Received=when LSAC sent out my report*****
Over the last 5 semesters my GPA has been ~3.45. I have been taking upper division physics, mathematics, philosophy and law classes and done very well in all. My bad grades were in lower level, general classes 5 years ago. (2002-2003). In other words I have a very good 'grade trend'. Whether that is worth anything is yet to reveal itself. My GPA got a slight boost this fall and I GRADUATED IN DEC. 07 YAY!
*****************I would really like to get in at the Arizona State University Center for Law, Science, and Technology***************

9/24/07 - I recieved a fee waiver from Cardozo. I have been contemplating applying there since they have a relatively high intellectual property law ranking in US news, but I just don't know.

10/05/07 - Sent out all my applications except Minnesota, they don't accept until Oct. 15th.
10/08/07 - Got a fee waiver from University of Iowa. Some of the schools that I have applied are getting my LSAC Reports.
10/10/07 - Had a job interview with an engineering firm. I figure I work as an engineer after I graduate and I can update any schools that waitlist me. That should help with the decision.

10/18/07 - Out goes another L.O.R. now the apps are complete. I might get a couple more. We shall see.

11/2/07 - I got an email from University of Minnosota that said my app was early enough that I would get an early decision, sometime in December. Thats cool!
11/05/07 - Got a fee waiver to Akron.
11/09/07 - Got a scholarship offer of $10,000-$12,000 from Florida Coastal Addmissions Dean. Weird since I didn't even apply there.

11/27/07 - WAITING PATIENTLY
11/29/07 - Just found out I got the engineering job I applied for. Start in January. I will have to send an updated resume to the schools.

12/02/07 - Recieved a letter and fee waiver w/ scholarship info from Valparaiso University.
12/05/07 - What is up with DUKE 's website being hacked? Putting my info in jeopardy. Very dissappointed in the Blue Devils right now. Hopefully their status checker gets back online soon.

12/12/07 - I just sent an email to every school on my list asking if it was proper procedure for me to send an update letter describing my recent actions and plans. Lets see what they say.

12/18/07 - Finally Gonzaga has joined the club. Better late than never.
12/21/07 - Got a letter from U of Minn saying my application is on 'hold'. I kinda figured I would get this type of response. I will send out my update letter and hope it puts me over the top at some of my top school choices.
12/24/07 - Got a letter with the scholarship offer from Chicago Kent. It is good to see somebody can appreciate the importance of a science degree despite the low GPA
12/27/07 - FINALLY GRADUATED! I am officially a physicist. Well, chemical engineer by trade. Now I can send out my update letters. And they are good!
01/07/08 - Everything is out. My final updates and transcripts. Now I wait patiently and earn money.
01/11/08 - Got waitlisted at Colorado without them even getting my final transcripts. Oh well.
01/18/08 - My status checker at Michigan said decision without them even getting my final transcripts. Probably rejected.
02/18/08 - I got a call from Southwestern with an offer to go through their acceleration program. Probably going to withdraw my application. Chicago-Kent's offer is looking awfully good right now.
03/11/08 - Got a call from University of Minnesota. Got accepted. I decided to withdraw my app from Michigan State and Santa Clara as a result.
06/03/08 - I have sent emails of deference to ASU and Chicago Kent. Hopefully they accept and I can go to school next year.
