Hi there, thanks for the congrats. Yes, the scholarship info was included in the acceptance letter.

Why no UT?
Monday, July 31 2006 at 08:00 PM

Curious why you're not applying to UT. I know it's a stretch with our numbers, but I think the post grad earning potential makes it worth the $70 gamble. Congrats though on TWU! It must be nice to know you're in somewhere, and with money!

Why no UT
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Boss- I intended to apply to UT and also to SMU. I guess I ran out of gas. I may still give it a shot. TWU was a safety. The money is good though!

Congrats on getting in and the $, but I encourage you to apply to UT and SMU.

Congratulations!

Congratulations on your acceptances. It's not even Christmas and you've already had the beginnings of a great cycle! :)

St. Mary's
Sunday, October 22 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptance. I'm hoping to hear from them soon.

Wednesday, July 05 2006 at 08:00 PM

best of luck on the rest of your cycle! maybe we'll end up at the same school.

congrats
Tuesday, May 09 2006 at 08:00 PM

keep in mind where you want to live after law school. texas wesleyan probably places better in dfw tha st mary's

Congrats
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on the acceptances. I was just accepted by St. M. as well and I haven't received any info on scholarship awards. Have you called them and asked about $$ or have they sent you anything regarding that? I don't want to appear pushy to the admins, but honestly $ may make or break my choices for schools. Thanks dasboy

Thanks
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for your comments smack, we are applying to several of the same schools. My #1 choices are FSU and UF, but then TT and UH are close runners up for Texas. Good luck with your apps.

Congrats on your acceptances. Regarding the St. M's $, I did talk to a professor there (Pre-Law advisor for UG) and was told that they often make scholarship offers later in the cycle. I know a student who graduated from there '05 who told me they offer really small (5K) non-renewable awards. I know what you mean about the $. I would like to stay in S.A., but $30K a year on school is a lot!

St. Mary's
Sunday, October 22 2006 at 08:00 PM

I haven't heard anything from St. Mary's since the acceptance. Just waiting patiently...hoping something comes soon! :)

Congrats on Texas Tech!

Congratulations part 2 from Matokah on LSD.org! And with a scholarship! You're on a roll, girl! :)

Nice Scholarships!

Congratulations and good luck in law school.

Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Tech. Did you apply ED there, or regular admit? I also applied to Tech and I haven't heard anything yet. Nice scholly too!!!

TT
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Dasboy, I posted the answer on your LSN page, but thought I'd post here too just in case. I was regular decision at TT. We applied around the same time and our numbers are similar, so you should get your letter soon! Let me know!

TT & St. M
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, I'm still waiting, but we'll see what happens. Also, I spoke with a admin from St. M. and she said that scholarships usually come out sometime in mid to late January. They want to see how much money they will have and what not. So keep an eye on the mail box around that time. Good Luck.

Congrats on all ur schools! Do you know which one you prefer? I'm from CA, so I'm not sure how Texas Wesleyan is. Is that a good school for criminal law, etc? Thanks!

I am so jealous (in a good way) of your TTU scholarship. My stats are very similar to yours and hope that I can receive a similar offer. TTU is one of my top choices so I hope I get in. Congrats on the acceptance.

Thanks
Monday, September 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the congrats, and good luck with U of H :) With your score I think you have a good chance of getting in. Happy Holidays!

Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Chadindallas, Texas Wesleyan did say that the scholarship was conditional, but did not say what the conditions were. I had planned on calling to ask what the conditions were, but changed my mind when I got the TTU acceptance. You should call and ask. The admissions staff at Tex Wes is very nice.

TTU
Thursday, July 13 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks, you too. Congrats on the scholarship, that would be hard to turn down.

Go Raiders!
Monday, July 31 2006 at 08:00 PM

That's a nice amount at Tech. Great job!

TT
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks. I only have a couple more to hear from, but I think right now, Tech is my most viable option. Good luck with UH.

no word from UH
Tuesday, May 09 2006 at 08:00 PM

i'm still waiting on UH. them and UT are really taking their sweet time. good luck!

No Word From U of H
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey Jer...the online status checker changed to decision mailed yesterday. File has been in review since 11/20/06!

Congrats on UH!
Sunday, October 22 2006 at 08:00 PM

That's awesome! I hope you get $$$, too!

St. M
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

I'm not sure if it is renewable. I have yet to call the office to find out. I would imagine that it is, but I've heard elsewhere that St. M usually have pretty high expectations for those wanting to keep scholarships past the first year.

Thanks!
Wednesday, August 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

To a fellow hard working professional; congratulations on your cycle. Do you have a top choice? Looks like TX is your home, and you are planning to remain there.

Thursday, July 13 2006 at 08:00 PM

No I haven't visited TTU yet. Though I have heard nothing but good things about it I'm actually leaning towards SMU because of the prestige in Dallas. It would be nice not to be 100k in debt though.

TT
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on all of your acceptances. Have you decided on a school yet? I'm about 100% sold on TT, and plan on visiting for a 2nd time this weekend. Good luck with your choices.

TT
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Dasboy, TT totally sold me. I am moving to Lubbock in June! Hope to see you there! Do you have an e-mail address?

questioner
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

I chose TTU over U of H primarily for financial reasons. I got a great scholarship and the cost of living is low in Lubbock. I am a single mother and Lubbock seems like a better environment for my boys. I was also very impressed with the students and faculty that I met when I visted Tech.

1984. I went to school with Bonita Brown, Adrian Peterson's mother. I went to Westwood from 8th grade through nionth and then the last half of my junior year and my senior year (attended Midland Lee in between).

Email
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, I set up an email at Tech already. It should show up on this reply here. If not, send me a comment and I'll give it to you. I will be moving in July. Good luck.
