2/24/07 - wahoo first acceptanace! I hope they keep rolling in!

3/8/07 - stillllllllllllllllllll waitinggggggggggg I know it hasn't been that long but I'm getting more nervous by the moment. Has anyone herd if Apps are taking longer this year to get through????

3/13/07 - Waiting list at Chapman, surprised. Somehow I feel like I'm going to be waiting longer then normal to figure out where I'm going to law school

3/27/07- Rejected from GMsn last night, via snail mail. Again no surprise....stillllllllllll waiting.

4/9/07- YUP, stilllll waiting. Is this normal? Is anyone else still waiting over 2 months after completion of applications????

4/11/07 - Another Waiting List, This time from Soutwestern - Online Status check, they said my waiting list notification was in the mail Yowza

-Went home to an acceptance and $$ from Golden Gate via snail mail. Nice after my 3rd WL notice.

4/12/07- Sent Catholic letter of Intention w/additional Rec. They start to review WL on the 16th. Plan on calling the other WL schools to see if they accept supplemental info.

4/13/07- hmmm looking at the law schools left I'm thinking there might be a time when I have to choose between Golden Gate and Western State. Not what I was hoping for, but at least I'm going somewhere. Does Anyone know ANYTHING about either of these schools? I cannot seem to find anything that really differentiates the two?????

4/14/07 - attended Western's admitted student's day. I would prefer to not have to attend.

4/20/07- Called Pacific and Santa Clara about my application. Pacific said I should hear something by May 1st and Santa Clara said sometime before the middle of May. YIKES! Loyola online status check said notice in the mail 4/19 so I will see when that gets here. USD has never been accommidating on the phone so I didn't bother calling them. Rutgers I'm going to wait longer as I applied much later.

..WAHOO Waiting List at Loyola, very excited!! Did not expect this!

4/23/07 - Withdrew from Western State

4/26/07- Denied at USD, not surprised, but would have preferred an earlier notice. Sml white envlpe.

5/2/07 - Small envlpe. with wait list notice. Letter said they expect to admit student from the waiting list in late May and June (and of course till the first day of classes) Yikes!! Is there a record for most wait lists?????

5/8/07 - Rutgers called and offered me a start this summer, If I say NO they said I'm basically at the top of the waiting list.

5/9/07 - I will be attending Rutgers this Summer/Fall etc.. I will withdraw from all schools tonight (except Santa Clara, Loyola and Catholic).

5/10/07 - Offical withdrew from All schools today (except Santa Clara they need to make a decision). Rutgers tops all the positives of the other schools and then some Crazy and completely unexpected Cycle...Best of luck to all who go down this path!!

5/25/07- Finally herd from Santa Clara Yikes - waitlist -that was REDIC Long!! I'm now attending Rutgers and LOVE IT so Withdrew and all the stats are there for future users. Enjoy.

I'm still waiting on most of my CA schools, and I applied about the same time you did. Oy. The waiting is driving me crazy!!!

all i know about golden gate is that they are on probation by the ABA and they might lose their accreditation. Which is scary. If I get accepted there, I wouldnt go b/c ABA accreditation is very important obviously.

Saturday, April 07 2007 at 08:00 PM

Well, thats kinda true. If they lose accreditation while your a student, you'll be considered an ABA graduate, BUT when I contacted them they told me that some state bars require that you attend a school that has full accreditation, meaning not provisional or probation. So you wouldn't be able to practice in certain states. After they told me that I got pretty freaked out b/c who knows where life takes you and I want all my option opens after investing 3 yrs of my life into law school.

I visitied GGU yesterday and was extremely impressed. They were put on probation for a low bar pass rate and have now done MANY things to make sure that their rate goes up - which it did. They will be re-evauluted in Dec, Realistically, they are not going to lose their ABA status. They have gone above and beyond, in my view, and made themselves a much better school for it.

The campus wasn't as new and shiny as McGeorge, but for me it was a big step up from Cal Western's Campus. I attended a class and spoke to two (students randomly selected by me) and both gave RAVE reviews to the school. Students I talked to at other schools seemed to really "like" their schools, the two GGU students "loved" their school. Its making me think because before I was pretty set on TJ (provided I'm not accepted at McGeorge and neither of my waitlists come through - U. of Miami nor Penn State). I feel like you will get into McGeorge's day program. I'm hoping I get into the day. If they only accept me for their night program, my decision is going to be more complicated. Please keep me in to loop when you hear from UOP.

Wednesday, March 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

I still haven't hear. I called and they still haven't made a decision on my application. Before I was told that I would be notified by May 1st, this time I was told that a decision would be made by May 1st and mailed out after. Its weird to me that they don't have a better sense of their numbers.

Wednesday, March 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

Haven't heard a peep from UOP. Was visiting Penn State's two campus' today, kissing ass to try to get off the waitlist. I fly back to LA tomorrow, then drive right to San Diego for a Cal Western event. URRG. I keep trying to just be thankful that I have options though. Please let me know when you hear. I expect my UOP letter when I get back to my apt on May 6th. I will post my results asap.

Wednesday, March 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

I finally heard from UOP. At this point in time is was the response I was hoping for; a rejection. Yes, I am a happy reject! I went to a Scholar's Program at Cal Western last Friday and fell in love (but $48,000 also helped my fall). I'm relieved and feel I can make a decision without thinking about the ranking of UOP; just based on the best fit factors. With your LSAT score, I think McGeorge is dumb not to accept you. Best of luck to you whatever you do and where ever you go!
