It's funny you should say that since Berkeley is my first choice! I'm currently working on the East Coast and miss California so much. Hopefully, we'll both end up on the Best Coast. :-)
go GRINGA go! :)
Am pleased that we are in total agreement that UB Law is a high quality law school ! Our new dean has the place "ON THE MOVE". Wish you the best !
Hey good luck this cycle! We have similar-ish number and are applying to a bunch of the same schools. Too bad I can't steal your Pitt waiver since I'm broke and have no clue how I'm going to afford all these apps and pay off my loan from undergrad. =( hehe
You're Going to Law School! Way to go! I am sure there are a lot more happy emails on the way though.
My numbers are barely fudged at all. Like .05 of a GPA point or something to that effect. Lol, what I have is very representative. =) Yes, I did write the "Why Case" essay. I'm actually really liking Case the more I look into it. It's right down the street from CIM, too which is a GREAT music school. So, I can see lots of great operas if I go there =) I think my top 5 would be: Case, Santa Clara, Depaul, Chicago-Kent, and Loyola (or George Mason... but GM is kind of a reach for me). But honestly, I'm not applying to any schools I WON'T go to. Like all of my family lives in Maryland/Baltimore/DC, so I would kill to go to UM, Balt, or George Mason for that reason alone! I have family in Pennsylvania, too. hehe
Lol your comments are so sweet and make me feel much better. I'm so nervous that I'm somehow going to do something horribly wrong and get denied everywhere. I'm just holding my breath until my first acceptance. D:
Thanks for the comment. Miami was my first acceptance too, but it's a bit pricey. What's your first choice?
I'm still waiting for my acceptance packet from Miami! I see you got yours yesterday so I'm hoping I find mine in my mailbox tonight.
wow, you heard back from Miami pretty fast! I'm sure you have many more to come...
Yeah the scholarship at Cuse is per year. I did write the two short essays so maybe they helped? You definitely applied to a ton of schools, which is your number one? So far I am pretty disappointed because I was waitlisted at UB (where I go to undergrad) and feel like I have been waiting to hear from other schools forever. Good luck with your cycle! Congrats on Miami, it looks like I might possibly end up going there.
hey snaps, I'm not a resident though wish I was considering how cheap instate is. I took a lot of time writing my ps for all schools I applied to and was lucky to get great recs.
also, good luck!! keep up the hope.
You probably have a good shot at getting some money at syracuse as well, I'm just not sure I can take the cold weather any longer, plus it's still a very expensive school. I am not going to the admitted students day at Miami but I am seriously considering it.
haha ty. Now the issue is my mom is going to kill me because I want to move away. I mentioned in passing that Loyola is probably my #1 right now, and she was like "oh.. oh, let's not talk about it." Because in her mind I'm staying on the east coast even though I made it clear IN THE BEGINNING that I want to be near LA or New York.
Yeah, it looks like we are number twins. Good luck to you, I'll be following your cycle. Do you have a #1 choice?
I'm sure you'll get into the same places! I turned my apps in late November, so that's probably why I've heard. Best of luck to you!!!
I like that you applied to Case after I did, but you got a 'received' e-mail. I've heard NOTHING from them, lol. I'm starting to worry that the internet ate my application.
haha same here! Rutgers-N cashed my check, but not Seton Hall. Case is freaking me out, haha. It's like they're TRYING to make us nervous.
Congratulations! Are you going to visit the school? I'm thinking about going to the first Legal Scholar Day in March. I think it's the 13th.
It wasn't really a top choice for me, but like you, I was also impressed with their packet, so I want to check things out. I have to see if I can get off work for a day though. I think I am kind of leaning towards Miami just because my family is on the East Coast though.
Thanks. I'm really excited about Tennessee since I'm in-state and I'm hoping for scholarship money (aren't we all?) When making a decision it will probably boil down to location and money so I'll see how the cycle treats me. Congrats on Hofstra and I think you have a great shot at Seton Hall! Good Luck!
I've heard Seton hall sends that "under review" letter and then follows it like a week later with a decision. So, for McGeorge, you just got a message saying 'Decision Rendered' on your status checker then got a letter in the mail? Mine switched to decision rendered yesterday, and I'm nervous. lol I'm dying to hear from Rutgers-Newark though.
Apparently Seton Hall just received my application? They sent me an e-mail telling me it was received but not complete. Did you not get that e-mail? WHAT IS GOING ON. Lol I hate this stress!
Hey! I actually heard via email the Monday after I made a campus visit. ED is binding but they were my top choice so I'm excited! Congrats on your acceptances!
I'm really excited about the Case acceptance, and they're at the top of my list now. I'm thinking of visiting there next month. Good luck w/ your pending apps!
Case sent me an e-mail to tell me I was complete. lol yeah I still might go. I've never been to the west coast, so I'd love a trip to Sac. I'd prob go toward the end though.. the later march date =)
haha yeah. I really like DePaul.. it's just so expensive. I'm kinda praying to God they offer me some sort of money, but I don't know if I'll get any. =( We'll see! I'm still waiting on the actual letter to come in!
Looks like you're courting some of the schools in my old area (SU, UB).. best of luck! Not too sure about CO. Thinking we might make a move back to NY -- Heather (gf) is considering a PhD in her field but isn't sure, and I'm thinking I'd rather be at Cornell, so I was thinking about taking another year off and starting in 2010. What's your top choice?
I literally just checked my e-mail and received a "We are delighted to offer you admission" from Catholic. Pretty excited about that though I've still got several schools to hear back from. What's your top choice? Good luck!
haha not really though. I keep getting into schools, but I'm not getting offered any money. =( I was surprised by the DePaul acceptance since they've been pretty hardcore this year, but it's all so expensive. =(
Thanks, snaps, and congats to you on your cycle thus far as it seems we're pretty similar. I can't believe I got into Seton Hall, as I am below their current class' 25%ile for the LSAT. My top choice? I would say W&M, as I'm hoping for a late-game acceptance/WL which would obviously require lots of luck. I'm hoping that my unique application "theme" and targeted LOR from a W&M law prof will help! Otherwise, Temple/Villanova/Rutgers/Seton Hall/Pitt probably in that order depending on scholarship info. Here's to many more acceptances for us both. Cheers!
My top choices are Loyola, Santa Clara and USD. Though the more I look into UNLV the more I like it since, even with out of state tuition, it would by far be the cheapest. Also no state income tax would certainly make working in Nevada for a few years to build experience for a return to California worth it. It all comes down to how the rest of my cycle finishes and how much $$$ I can get. Tour wise I am looking to hit up Santa Clara and USF. I've already hit all the other California Schools. Might try to check out Catholic if they make it worth my while with money. What about you? Thinking about hitting up some west coast schools for a visit?
Did McGeorge offer to pay your way to visit the school? If so I'd definitely check it out. If they didn't offer to pay for the trip and you're debating visiting let me know. I was born, raised and currently live in Sacramento so I can answer any questions you might have. I understand the being spoiled with a big city. I went to school in LA and I am trying to get back down there. The only place I've been to that compares to LA is Rome. I realized a while back I can't ever leave California. As crazy as this state is I love it and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. You're originally from the east coast obviously?
Thanks for the nice comment. I am still waiting on a few more schools, I applied to a ton. Right now if I had to make a decision my top 3 would be Tennessee, Kentucky, and DePaul but sometimes that changes. I still need to think about it some more and money/debt will probably have a lot to do with my decision. Good Luck!
Thanks! Yes, I grew up in Eugene, OR. I love it there, and I will probably be going to UO. Good luck with your application. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.
Hey. I got that same Santa Clara e-mail. Are you pretty set on Pacific. Would an acceptance from any of your remaining schools change your mind? I think I'm pretty set on Case at this point.
I'm leaning towards McGeorge as well!! Good luck with the decision process:)
I haven't actually got to visit yet. I'm hoping to visit some time soon after tax season! Did you submit your deposit for Pacific? Wasn't the deadline April 1st?
Oh man! I wish I had an answer, but it changes every day! Buffalo to Syracuse to Arizona back to Buffalo back to Syracuse. It will likely be one of those three. You sound pretty sure of SU! Congratulations! Good luck with everything!
Nice going with the Syracuse scholarship! I see you withdrew from Miami. I am most likely going to withdraw as well and will attend Rutgers if I don't get any surprises from my 4 remaining schools. Best of luck to you.
Congrats on Oregon! That is a great choice right there.
I'm pretty much sold on Tennessee right now and I can't beat the in-state tuition. It's a bargain for me. I did want to get out of the state but I can't justify moving my wife and family across the country for my selfish desires unless it was really worth it. There are a few pending apps that could sway me and some waitlists so we'll see but I'm thinking I'll be in Knoxville in the fall. I was really excited about being waitlisted at Boston College though. Oregon was a hard school for me to withdraw from. That area of the country is just beautiful. Good Luck!
Congratulations on Oregon! Based on what you wrote, it seems like you have had a hectic few days going back and forth between Syracuse and Oregon! I just put a seat deposit down at Buffalo and I'll be waiting for Arizona. Congrats again!
Congrats! Yes, I'm set on Oregon now. I'll see you there! =p
Congrats on Oregon! I hear it's nice there. My Case visit was great. The admissions office, the students in the class I observed, and my tour guide were so welcoming. Before I went, I was really scared of Cleveland, but now I can really see myself at Case. Best of luck to you at Oregon!
congrats on syracuse. you're right - it IS funny how things work out. i'm sure you'll love it. be sure to visit rochester sometime. (maybe you could meet up with mike!)
a twist! i just read your most recent comments. well, if you like oregon more, you should def. go there. either way, good luck with picking something out! i'm deferring for a year, so that's cool.
I\'m an LSAT instructor. Do your homework and don\'t stress out too much and you\'ll be fine. The biggest mistakes people make are to not prepare or put too much pressure on themselves. Best of luck.
