I really want to stay in northern California for law school. And these were the schools that I felt like I had a decent shot of getting into. (I only applied to Loyola because I started getting really freaked out about applying to only 4 schools).
Realistically, I'm thinking that I will end up at Santa Clara. But Hastings is my DREAM school. If I get in there I will seriously be the happiest person on the face of the earth!

I just got my LSAT score through e-mail... I scored a 159. I'm not super excited about it, but I'm not completely disappointed either. I was scoring in that range during the last few weeks before the test so its not a surprise to me.
The score should be good enough to get me into USF and Santa Clara, but Hastings is looking more and more like its just gonna stay a dream. But I'm not giving up hope! Maybe I can get in through a waitlist or something?!

So... all of my applications have been turned in for awhile now, but only 3 of them (Hastings, Santa Clara, and USF) have gone "complete". I'm starting to wonder why Loyola hasn't even requested my LSDAS report yet... I think I'll be calling them either later today or sometime tomorrow. I'm also wondering why it's taking the Davis application so long to go "complete." I think their entire process is slow for some reason, because it took them forever just to e-mail me that they had recieved my application! I guess each school goes at its own pace.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I just checked my online banking account and Loyola cashed my check a couple days ago! Atleast now I know that they got my application. Now I just gotta wait for an email or something from them (and also from UC Davis too) saying that I've gone complete.

I just got an e-mail from Santa Clara talking about how great they are. Interesting...

I really don't like how law schools are sending out e-mails right now talking about how great they are. I'm expecting to get an admissions decision right now, not a brochure! I got so excited today cus I got an e-mail from USF. I was hella nervous seeing it in my inbox cus I thought I was finally gonna find out whether I got in or not. But then when I opened it I was like "wow, this is so disappointing!"

Just got a letter in the mail from Loyola giving me my ID number to check my application status online... why didn't they just send an e-mail? Paper wasters!
December 12, 2007
ACCEPTED AT SANTA CLARA!!! big, white, thin envelope... no scholarship money though :(
December 13, 2007
ACCEPTED AT USF with a $25,000/year scholarship!!! holy crap thats a lot of money.
December 14, 2007
Just got an email from Hastings saying that my application was gonna be deferred until march 15... ouch, that hurts :(

I just checked the Loyola status checker website and it says that I went complete a few days ago. But now that I've gotten into Santa Clara and USF I don't need Loyola as a backup anymore. I am kinda curious to see if they'd accept me though... so maybe I'll wait awhile before I withdraw my application.

Nothing's happened in such a long time. It's driving me crazy!

Loyola status checker went to decision... I know I applied there last minute as a super duper back-up, but I've been going back to LA a lot these past few months and I'm hella loving it. It would be kinda nice to be back in LA with my old friends again. And I could have some roommates and save a ton of money on rent. But maybe I'm just being sentimental. We'll see what happens... I'll be checking my mailbox like crazy.

In at Loyola! Big packet came in the mail today. Scholarship info comes separately though. And I've decided that I'm gonna put off withdrawing from schools until after I've heard back from Hastings. Which according to them, will be before March 15th.

I'm withdrawing from Loyola.
March 22, 2008
In at Davis via status checker! This feels hella good, but it figures that the one school I really wanna go to (Hastings) is gonna be the last school to get back to me! The suspense is killing me!

Rejected at Hastings via small white envelope. I'm surprisingly ok with it.
