Deferred @ Fordham. Kind of happy-shocked because I expected to be automatically rejected but maybe...just maybe....I wrote them a heartfelt letter of continued interest. It now says second evaluation on my status checker.

01-16-07
WOW! My first acceptance! Thank you warm and beautiful University of San Diego! Now I have to seriously consider moving across the country. I'm excited but my parents didn't do a good job at feigning happiness - obviously they are rooting for a NYC school - but anyway, someone likes me!

01-22-07
No news to report. No news sucks. Well, no news also means there is no bad news, so, I guess that is good news.

01-24-07
In at Rutgers School of Law Newark! I've been reading LSD all day and getting morose over the lack of news and then I checked my email and the first word was Congratulations! The email said they are sending a packet later this week but wanted to let me know quickly. There is an open house March 29. This is really exciting! No rejections so far, maybe the bad news will come last.

01-29-07
Waitlisted at American. This just makes me feel like whining. I mean, I know it is the best I could probably hope for with my numbers, but still, how could a school geared towards public interest not accept me? My resume makes me the queen of public interest. I know....I know...I will definitely send in my continued interest form. And don't get me wrong, it is a great school, and I am grateful I was not rejected. Plus, I got a huge package from Rutgers to make up for the small envelope day.

02-02-07
Came home and got excited because there was a huge envelope in the mail. Got sad when I realized it was a brochure from a school that I didn't even apply to. Brushed it aside and found another envelope from Seton Hall. In at Seton Hall! Only part time though, but that won't be too bad because I could actually work at my current job and commute there pretty easily if I decided to go. Is it odd that I only got in part time after they sent me a fee waiver? The very nice letter said that the applications were really competitive this year. From what I've read on LSD, Seton Hall is a real up and coming school. Exciting. Three options!

02-15-07
Waitlisted at Cardozo and deferred at Lewis and Clark in the same day. I have a feeling I am shaping up for a season of waitlisting from the rest of my reachier schools. Lewis and Clark sent me a fee waiver - so why would they make me a "maybe"? Oh Cardozo....

02-26-07
Rejected at Arizona? Huh? Whatever.

02-27-07
My mom promised to buy me dinner for every rejection letter I got - so I just got home from a very nice Korean meal and waiting for me with the mail was my Hofstra T-shirt and quite possibly the nicest acceptance letter I've recieved. Not only did they award me a $16,000 scholarship in recognition of my work experience, but there was a handwritten note about my personal statement and application. It was really, very very nice. Too bad the T-shirt is an extra large - I could fit three of me inside it!

03-09-07
Dinged at George Mason. I don't care - it was never really the right school for me. In fact, my mom thinks it should just count as a dessert instead of a dinner. I also called St. Johns and Brooklyn - I am complete at both of them but no decision has been made. My hopes are sinking...

03-12-07
Waitlisted at Maryland - I thought they would reject me so this was nice.

03-30-07
Per Fordham Status Checker...Denied
It took them five months to decide that?
I'm so over it.
Besides, I visited Rutgers last night and loved the atmosphere.

04-05-07
Got the official Fordham denial letter today. I have to say, it was very well written. But more importantly, why won't Temple tell me anything???

04-12-07
Waitlisted at Northeastern. YAWN. I'm going to withdraw. They charge too much.

04-15-07
Rejected at Temple yesterday in a deathly thin envelope. I'm officially depressed for the first time this cycle.

06-06-07
In at St. Johns over phone call but kind if had the idea a couple of days ago when I got an email for admitted students. Offical letter to follow. Now I have to think about everything all over again. I don't have to make any decisions until June 15th though. Open student house on June 14th. Oh yeah, rejected at Lewis and Clark a couple of weeks ago. I had never heard of the school before they sent me a fee waiver. I guess I was part of their plan to boost their numbers. Bizzare.

Yeah. I was excited about the Fordham deferral. I don't know what our chances are now. I will be re-taking the LSAT. I have been practicing about 8-10 points higher, so maybe it will work out. Good luck to ya!

Waiting on Temple
Monday, March 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

I called Temple last week and the admissions woman was absolutely no help. I asked to speak to someone else and she gave me the director's email. The director was more informative but basically just told me to wait...no explanation. Good Luck

Sorry! I just checked my profile for the first time in a week! Cardozo actually sent me a package express mail to tell me I'd gotten in (which is funny since I live about 10 minutes away!). Hang in there! Best of luck!

Just wondering: When was the first deposit due by? Good luck.

So how does the part time thing work, exactly? Does this mean that 30 min. through class there will be a mass exodus of people with real jobs and real bills? If it helps, I have a high school friend that goes to law school at American, and I would rather chew my way out of a glass cage than talk to her about any international topic. In retrospect, I don't know how this should help, except to say there is at least one bobble-head attending the school. Anyway, I have yet to hear anything negative about R-N but I'll let you know if I do. Maybe you can create an on-campus rivalry with American. Here, I'll start: American, ha! More like Denmark! (I was going to go with France, but that is SO 2005). Congratulations!

Everyone else on LSN attending full-time so far has been from out west, we'll have to start bugging you for some local knowledge.

Horray!
Sunday, April 15 2007 at 08:00 PM

More people going to R-N and yes, you are the only local compared to the west coasties. I am calling us that until a more suitable nickname is suggested. Let's be email buddies. Although as miles knows I lack in keeping up regularly, totally due to work.
