Le fin de cycle - A time of world-weariness and fashionable despair in anticipation of ends and new beginnings. Indulge me, admissions committees!

1-12-09 Still waiting on a Letter of Recommendation I requested in October.

1-14-09 I was going to use my money as kindling, but instead I applied to BU.

1-26-09 Letter of Recommendation processed. My LSDAS profile is complete, as are my sent application packages. We'll see what the future holds.

2-4-09 Accepted at Georgia! I'm definitely going to law school!

2-9-09 Accepted at Wake Forest!

2-20-09 Deferred at Bloomington. These things happen.

2-22-09 Accepted at George Mason! Phone call from admissions earlier this week.

2-26-09 Waitlisted at Illinois as expected.

3-7-09 Emory not enamored; rejection does not yield dejection, for nigh is Georgia, my low-hanging fruit of low tuition; everything's peachy.

3-12-09 Waitlisted at Gdubs.

4-7-09 Accepted at UMN! I'm stunned.

4-20-09 After attending the Minnesota ASW, I've decided to attend UMN.

My advice to prospective UMN applicants is simple and as follows:

Write a strong personal statement, specifically addressing why you would like to attend the University of Minnesota Law School.

You need to get your apps out ASAP! Make sure your PS is on point and be creative! Good luck!

lol I'm waiting on a LOR I requested in October, too. =/ I need that letter to come in to apply to like half of the schools on my list. So basically after tonight, I will have applied to all the 1 or 0 LOR schools and will just twiddle my thumbs for all the 2 LOR schools. =( So, I feel your pain!

Friday, July 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Haha well you'll probably get in, and I won't. XD But good luck. I actually just heard from my recommender. He apologized and said he's mailing it on Tuesday. So, hopefully I can finish up my apps next weekend.

YAY!

1st acceptance and a good one at that! You're going to law school! Maybe I'll see you at UGA in the Fall!

Sweet tea & Georgia Football still have you swayed or is Wake Forest pulling ya in? Congrats!

i found out by a separate letter the following week i think. we have such similar numbers! with the split (lower gpa, higher lsat), every acceptance i get i feel lucky and every rejection i get i feel like i got robbed. haha. anyway i went to wake undergrad and it's a beautiful place so you have some excellent options so far. best of luck!

I am applying for UMN for fall 2010 and I wanted to thank you for your comment about writing a strong personal statement. UMN is my #1 choice and I will definitely take that advice to heart. Any other tips? Good luck as a 1L!
