*3 Letters of Recommendation: Poli Sci Prof, VP at my work, and the director of an internship I had while in college.
*Wrote additional "Why (insert Law School here)?" statement for Case Western and wrote a few specialized paragraphs for my statement to Texas Tech.
*Scholarship amount is total for 3 years.
03/25/2008 - Seattle gave a resounding "no." That actually stings a little.
03/16/2008 - Rejection from UT. Not a big surprise there.
03/14/2008 - Accepted at Texas Wesleyan with a less than impressive scholarship offer. Boo.
03/13/2008 - Well it's about freaking time--Checked the online status for Texas Wesleyan and a decision has been "rendered" and "mailed". I'm not really impressed at their speed. Are there that many people applying to Tex Wes?
02/23/2008 - Oh Happy Day. I've been waiting, and waiting, and waiting and I finally heard back from Tech: Accepted! Though that is a little dirty that they want the acceptance deposit in two weeks. I really want to go to Tech, but I wanted to hear back from Case first. Damn...
02/16/2008 - St. Mary's showing the love with $8,000 the first year followed by the same for each additional if I am in the top 25% of the class.
02/11/2008 - Finally received my big, red envelope from Albany. It is nice. ;)
02/08/2008 - I GUESS I have been accepted to Albany. Here is the text of the e-mail that I received:
"Welcome to Albany Law School!

Our intellectually stimulating environment, with a world-class faculty, entrepreneurial centers and rigorous academic program, is waiting for you.

I guess one of my problems was that this e-mail was sent from Catherine Zeronda's e-mail address. I don't really know what to say.
02/07/2008 - Cricket chirping at the mailbox. Seriously...what's the freakin' holdup?!?!?!
01/19/2008 - Thin, white ACCEPTANCE letter from St. Mary's. It's good to know that if everything else falls through, I'll still be able to go somewhere besides Tex Wes.
01/17/2008 - Thin, white rejection envelope from Vanderbilt. Expected, so not a big deal.
01/11/2008 - Received e-mail from Tech saying that my application was complete and would be submitted to the admissions committee next week.
01/10/2008 - Received confirmation letter from Albany that my application is complete.
01/09/2008 - Received e-mail from Tech "to acknowledge receipt of [my] application for admission."
01/04/2008 - Received confirmation letter from St. Mary's that my application is complete.
01/03/2008 - The wait is going to kill me.
