--Working for a large international law firm in conflict clearance since graduation in May 2005
--Applied to law schools two years ago. I was rejected by all schools, due to a low LSAT score. While I did not improve a much as I hoped, I did increase it by five points and twenty percentile points! Luckily, with the new ABA rules, most schools accept the highest score!
--Hope to stay in the Northeast Ohio area!
--Good luck to everyone during this cycle!
12/2/06 - Received letter from Thomas Cooley stating they've received my application. I don't think I would consider going there. I think I only applied since I had a 90% chance of acceptance and with all the past rejection, wanted at least one acceptance.
12/4/06 - Deferred @ Akron. Decisions expected on deferred files anywhere from April-August 2007. Keeping my fingers crossed. I took a chance applying full time since my numbers are way below their full time stats. I'd be very happy with a part time offer.
12/9/06 - Received a letter in the mail from Capital stating they've received my application and will be requesting my LSDAS report soon. Also received an email on Friday to participate in ONU's admission chat this week.
12/12/06 - Application complete at NKU. Notified via email. All notifications will be sent by snail mail to address on application. Typically takes 4-6 weeks to reach a decision. They're also closed for the holidays.
Application also complete at Cleveland-Marshall. Received this notification via email. Committee generally reviews files from December until May and makes decisions as soon as possible.
12/13/06 - Participated in ONU's online chat. They did state that decisions (acceptances/rejections) are sent via snail mail.
12/14/06 - Email from Dayton stating my application is being sent for review by committee. Decisions can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks. Decisions would be made in writing, which I'm assuming is via snail mail.
12/18/06 - Received postcard from Duquesne acknowledging application; will be requesting LSAC report soon. Also said I will receive notification when my file becomes complete.
12/23/06 - ACCEPTED to CSU!!! I couldn't have asked for a better Christmas present. I was notified via snail mail in a regular sized envelope!!!
12/28/06 - Notification of acceptance to Dayton via email. More information to follow in the next few weeks in the mail. No scholarship info.
12/29/06 - Accepted to ONU. Came in large envelope in regular mail. Letter was dated 12/20 but postmarked on 12/27. Later in the day, Dacy Wilcox called to congratulate me personally on my acceptance...nice touch!
1/10/07 - Official letter from Dayton confirming my acceptance came today. No scholarship info :( $30,000 just for tuition is SO much money!! They claim that review for scholarships are ongoing, but it's pretty clear from this site that they DO offer scholarships with acceptance letters. Oh well.
1/11/07 - Received acceptance from Thomas Cooley with a 25% scholarship. Since I'ave received other acceptances, I will be withdrawing soon.
1/12/07 - Received acceptance from Capital. Came regular mail in a large white envelope.
1/27/07 - Received acceptance into part time program at Duquesne.
Also received notification of deferral from NKU. I am kind of surprised about this.
2/13/07 - Withdrew from ONU, Dayton and Capital. I hope this enables them to expedite decisions on pending applications.
3/8/07 - Letter from Akron asking to indicate my level of interest. Indicated I was still interested but only for full time day.
4/14/07 - Accepted to Toledo, but was offered admission to part time evening program. They stated their full time day program is full.
Waitlisted as NKU...
Will be attending CSU this fall! Hope to meet some fellow future C-Mers!
