Additional info & updates

Okay, so I didn't study at all for the LSAT. Big mistake!!! Oh well, here's hoping that my personal statement will compensate for my score.

11-11-11

University of Tulsa rejected me the SAME DAY my application was received. WOW. No biggie, it wasn't on the top of my list anyhow.

11-15-11

ACCEPTED to Florida Coastal. Whew, at least I KNOW that I am going to law school somewhere! :)

11-16-11

ACCEPTED at Charlotte! :)

11-19-11

REJECTED by Washburn, a bit disappointing.

Four decisions down, four to go! I'm really hoping that all decisions are made prior to Thanksgiving (regardless of whether they are acceptances or rejections).

11-23-11

IN SHOCK!!! ACCEPTED at California Western. I can't believe it!!!!

12-2-11

ACCEPTED at Western State!

1-10-12

Finally ACCEPTED at Phoenix. Too little too late!

congrats on your acceptance! i'm so jealous you've heard back from law schools... waiting is horrible! :( what's your first choice? but anyways... good luck !

Wednesday, November 16 2011 at 07:00 PM

How many Letters of Rec. did you have and from who? Just wondering since I have around the same score and GPA and I am worrying about getting in ANYWHERE.

Jennifer, My status updates were the same as yours. My status changed to "You have been accepted" a few days after I applied. This was the message that appeared at the top of the screen - Congratulations on your recent acceptance to Florida Coastal! Your acceptance letters will be emailed to you soon! Your acceptance letters will contain the details of your acceptance, any scholarship you might qualify for and a deadline to pay your non-refundable $400 seat deposit. You can pay online at https://www.fcsl.edu/payment/admissions/registration. This time of year we always get some questions about deferment and we do not have a deferment program, but look forward to a future application from you if this spring is too soon for you to start law school. Again, congratulations! I didn't get the email until a couple of days after that. In the email there was a notification of mandatory summer courses too. First time I had heard anything about that mess. smh

I don't really recall, but it all went so fast that I doubt that there was a step in between.

AAMPLE?
Sunday, July 24 2011 at 08:00 PM

So did they (Florida Coastal) accept you into their AAMPLE program? Is that why you withdrew? If not, why did you decide to withdraw? Just curious.

Coastal
Monday, September 12 2011 at 08:00 PM

Coastal didn't offer a scholarship and Charlotte did - simple as that :). I was accepted for Spring, not AAMPLE. I was pretty certain that I was going to go to Charlotte, and then California Western accepted me today.

Oh yeah...
Monday, September 12 2011 at 08:00 PM

I didn't appreciate Coastal forcing a couple of summer classes on spring admits either. That left a bad taste in my mouth.

Surprised...
Sunday, July 24 2011 at 08:00 PM

That Coastal didn't offer you scholarship money. I know of people with lower GPA/LSATs that got nice scholarship offers. Nonetheless, good luck on your remaining cycle.

Saturday, October 08 2011 at 08:00 PM

Wow that s awesome congrats on getting into California western !!!! That's one of my reach schools! I take the test over tomorrow . U think ur going to go?

Cal Western
Monday, September 12 2011 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! I'd like to, but money is a huge consideration. I'm just not sure yet.

Congrats on Cooley!
Thursday, January 14 2010 at 07:00 PM

If you decide on Cooley in Tampa, there is a Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cooley-Law-Tampa-Campus/232452423469782?sk=wall that someone started, if you are interested.

Thanks, but...
Monday, September 12 2011 at 08:00 PM

I withdrew my application from Cooley.

Congrats!

Hey - Congrats on Cal Western - if you are comfortable sharing are you a URM? Cal Western is my #1 - hope to see you there. Best.

No word from Phoenix yet? Florida Coastal, Phoenix and Charlotte are all owned by the same company.

Monday, September 12 2011 at 08:00 PM

Nope. I'm a URM in the socioeconomic regard I suppose, but that's about it. :) No word from Phoenix yet. The date on the status checker did change yesterday from 11/10 to 12/14, but the status itself stayed the same.

Phoenix
Monday, September 12 2011 at 08:00 PM

1st status: Your application is in review on 11-10. 2nd status: Your application is in review on 12-14. 3rd status: Your application is in review on 12-16.

decisions.
Wednesday, November 23 2011 at 07:00 PM

Have you started to lean towards one school over another? Are these the only schools that you are applying to? I wish you the best. Congrats so far.

Charlotte Law
Tuesday, March 13 2012 at 08:00 PM

I received an email from Charlotte regarding a scholarship and after realizing how the city is growing and the opportunity, I decided to apply. Have you seen the campus? I'm assuming it's only one building? What factors did you take in when choosing Charlotte? Thanks! Kel
