Additional info & updates

12/07/05 - Marquette Acceptance (thin business envelope). Another envelope followed the next day with information on accepting. No scholarship offer yet.

Thank god, worrys are gone. Even if everything else fails, I have a place to go.

Also right now with a temperature hovering around 0, schools in a warm location are starting to look a lot better.

12/14/05 - Notice of Completion at Wisconsin (email)

12/16/05 - Complete at Georgetown, and Ohio State (online)

12/19/05 - I now admit that I have an addiction. I feel the need to apply to a new law school everyday. Does anyone know if their is a group for this? Otherwise I will have to quit cold turkey, as I am now pretty much broke.

12/25/05 - Based just on what I know without visiting school I like:
San Diego

12/27/05 -
Hofstra acceptance (big envelope) $15,000 scholarship. I was disappointed as I was hoping for the $25,000 scholarship that others had gotten. This reduces the total cost to about $35,000 per year or a total of $105,000.

Miami acceptance (regular envelope). Scholarship info comes later. Hopefully will get some money here, which would be great. They also talked about any expenses paid summer course which I would be interested in.

Right now: Miami it is!

1/4/06 - Loyola Chicago keeps sending me an email saying that I didn't send in my certification letter, eventhough I did. I am going to call them tomorrow.

Complete at Baylor (usps)

1/6/06 - Loyola Chicago has still not received my certification letter, so I am resending it.

1/10/06 - Complete at Tulane (email)

1/12/06 - Complete at Loyola-Chicago (email)

1/13/06 - I haven't heard anything in 17 days. Will Friday the 13th be my lucky day? Decisions are due soon from Wisconsin, Ohio State, Georgetown, and Tulane. Probably two acceptances and two rejections from those schools.
Complete at UNLV (postcard).

1/17/06 - Invite to Miami's admitted students day. Also financial aid worksheet from Miami and Wisconsin. I filled out the forms online, why do the school's what me to fill it out again?

1/23/06 - I am officially recieving no scholarship aid from Miami. That pretty much rules them out. This sucks. I can't see anyway in which I will pay $50,00 a year to go to school there. I am not really sure what I am going to do now, because I am fairly certain that Marquette is not going to offer me any money to go there either.

T-shirt from Hofstra, they are a serious possibility. Also a minority scholarship offer from Ohio State. That doesn't do a straight-white guy a lot of good. Another letter of completion from UNLV, and a notice of completion from Iowa.

1/31/06 - Accepted to Madison (usps), and Tulane (email). I am in-state at madison, this year's tuition is $11,658. In order for me to go to any law school ranked lower than Madison, they will have to lower their tuition to this range.

2/05/06 - Started a blog yesterday http://saltylawdog.blogspot.com/, I am pretty bored so I had to do something.

2/06/06 - Received a plethora of law-school related mail. Three pieces via usps, and an email about the admitted students day at WI. Hofstra invited me to meet the dean. Tulane offered me a $10,000 per year scholarship, and Loyola-Chicago waitlisted me (fuckers), I am now 5-0-1. Like those that have come before me mainly Army2Law and cedarchick, I will withdraw. The Tulane scholarship is nice and if I hadn't gotten in to Madison, it would be my number 1 right now. I am also going to send out an email to Hofstra to see if they would be willing to increase their offer. Greedy? yes, but what can it hurt. Overall a good birthday week.

2/10/06 - Shot down by the George Washington University (small usps). Bigger acceptance packet from Wisconsin (usps).

2/11/06 - Went to decision today at Georgetown. After George Washington's rejection I am positive that I will be rejected there.

2/13/06 - Not going to school in Washington. Rejected at Georgetown (usps)

2/22/06 - Went complete on OSU's website

2/23/06 - Attended a symposium on The Legacy of the Rehnquist Court, with Antonin Scalia as keynote speaker, it was very interesting. Also recieved an email from Tulane with a $300 travel voucher, which I am going to take them up on.

02/27/06 - 1-1-1. Accepted at San Diego (Big Envelope), Rejected George Mason (little envelope), Deferred (little envelope). It is easy to take rejections at schools where you are not likely to go. I am now 6-3-1.

hey! i\\\'m from lacrosse too! it also looks like we\\\'re applying to some of the same places with the same stats. i go to American right now for undergrad, and I wouldn\\\'t really recommend them for law school. if you want more info let me know :-)

Good Luck
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

Good Luck on your aps. We have similar numbers and are applying to some of the same schools!

Penn state...
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

...I have not heard back from Penn state, so I do not know if they give out $$$$. As for JAG, I know a little, but it depends on your questions. Send me your specific questions and I will forward them to a couple of JAG officers for you.

madison
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

We definitely do have similar #s. Madison was AWESOME for undergrad (a TON of fun & great academics). Also, I\\\'ve had a few profs from the law school for undergrad classes who were all fabulous. I don\\\'t think it\\\'s my #1, although that is still up in the air. It\\\'s such a good school, and they give preference to WI residents too. I\\\'m not real sure how I got all of the fee waivers; I think it was because when I signed up for LSAC, I clicked on \\\'candidate referral service.\\\' Good luck with all of your apps--looks like we are applying at alot of the same schools!! :) Let me know if you want any more info about Madison:)

favs
Thursday, November 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

My number one is Notre Dame, but I'm not optimistic. I would say that Ohio State and IU Bloomington are my "realistic" favorites at this point, but my mind is not made up. Good luck, and if all else fails, I will see you at Marquette :)

warm weather!
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thanks on the congratulations:) I moved down to FL after I graduated from Madison, and I love the warm weather:) I'm not sure I want to move back up north haha... I have looked into San Diego, Pepperdine, Tulane, and Miami (along with other schools). I also visited San Diego...and it is the most BEAUTIFUL campus I've ever seen...and its a fabulous city. Also, it's pretty well respected as a law school. As far as numbers go, I think their LSAT avg. is around 162...I love San Diego:) I'm not sure if I would recommend Tulane this year...they are really cutting down on their faculty and programs as a whole, but I haven't really heard anything specific about the law program. I'm not sure I would want to deal with all of the post-hurricane stuff. I found out living in SW FL that hurricane damage and cleanup is not real fun. Pepperdine you have to write an extra statement about ethics and Christian values... and Miami is awesome:) Good luck! Kelly also--congrats on Marquette! I have a few friends in law school there now, and they really like it :) Milwaukee's pretty fun too

Tuesday, November 01 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey- I graduated from UW-L in the Spring of 05 with geography and Spanish. I see your applying at Tulane, yesterday I toured Loyola of N.O., which is on the same block as Tulane. Have u visited? It is in a really cool part of town, which was pretty unscathed by the hurricane. By the way which year did u graduate? --Andrew

good luck
Saturday, December 24 2005 at 07:00 PM

good luck, will check back

Tulane
Tuesday, November 01 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey- My name is Andrew Disch by the way, and I'm from Verona. (right outside of Madison) I'm not gonna apply to Marquette, with my numbers I just dont think I'll get it, and I'm not interested in going PT if I can get into a full time program. (although I do think Milwaukee is great city) As for New Orleans, the tulane/loyola area called 'uptown' was damaged minimally. It is an awesome part of the city. The area is 'high end,.' but both colleges lie on St. Charles Ave which has a streetcar that can take you to downtown or in the other direction to more affordable housing. If u want to talk more email me or aim me(trenchtown830)

miami
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

I'm seriously considering Miami also...it is a REALLY fun city, and I love it...but I also do think it might be a little bit of a distraction to studying. I think for me anyway, it'd be great to be in a city full of action so you can get away from the stress etc of law school every once in awhile. Coral Gables isn't like a 'college' town like Madison is or anything, so it doesn't have as much of that atmosphere. But the city is great and offers alot of opportunities for summer jobs/internships and stuff. Good luck, and let me know where you decide to go! We applied at like 10 of the same schools:) Kelly

sd
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

sd is a nice place...it's at/near the top of my list too...i liked the school and i know sd is a nice city, so if u get in, i surely would recommend a harder look at it...good luck!

No Hurricanes in the Midwest :)
Thursday, November 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

I have never considered Miami, but only because of the distance from home. I am married, and due to the demands that I imagine law school will place on me, it wouldn't be fair to my wife to take her to another end of the country (I live in southern Indiana, about 10 min from Louisville, KY). The distance issue pretty much confines me to the midwest, which doesn't bother me because there are alot of good schools out here. My #1 right now is IU; I also like Ohio State, and I want to hear from Notre Dame before I make a decision.

Loyola
Sunday, October 23 2005 at 08:00 PM

My only guess is that I didn't write any of the optional essays for them.

I feel your pain
Tuesday, August 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Im not receiving any money from miami either. However, its the only school ive been accepted to. I think its closer to $40k a yr in stead of 50, but its still ridiculous. Kinda odd how I was poor enough to waive the app fee, but Im rich enough to pay full tuition.

miami
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

i didn't get any $$ from miami either...bummer. i'm sure you'll be accepted at san diego also though--and they give out alot of scholarships. And, San Diego really strives to help you work out financing your education.

San Diego
Wednesday, November 02 2005 at 07:00 PM

I applied because I wanted to have a good chance at going to law school in CA. Loyola and San Diego are 2nd on my list and Hastings is #1.

Sorry
Wednesday, November 02 2005 at 07:00 PM

I misunderstood your question, yea I looked at their part time admit numbers, and thought that I would be more likely to get in.

Thanks..
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

...Sorry to hear that Miami did not offer you any $$$, but I am sure that you will get some cash from somewhere.

hey!
Sunday, October 02 2005 at 08:00 PM

Waiting sucks. At least you heard from a few great places! The only two I am in at are my absolute safties. I would like to know I have some out of state options!

miami $$
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

i just drove over to miami to visit the law school, and the student that gave us the tour said that he didn't receive any $$ until the week before classes started--and then he received HALF tuition. so maybe there's hope for us!

Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

miami was a beautiful campus...pretty close to the ocean and downtown miami. it's a little weird though because it's in the middle of residential coral gables. students seem to live allll over miami from south beach to coconut grove. free football tickets for students though! i think i like san diego better, however...that is the MOST beautiful campus i have ever seen.

tulane
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

what time of day did your tulane email come? thanks

congrats!
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

congrats on UW and Tulane!!! I'm hoping to see the same replies from both of those schools:)

Congratulations...
Friday, October 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

...on Wisconsin. Did you visit?

Re: Congrats
Tuesday, January 24 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the message. I am leaning toward Wisconsin or one of the Loyolas at the moment, but I still really need to hear from all of my top choices. Good luck with the rest of your schools.

Madison
Saturday, January 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

Yes, I do plan to attend Wisconsin. I actually currently live (and work) in Madison. My husband is in a Ph.D. program and we live near Tenney Park (a popular grad student area) where we will probably stay next year. It's a very quiet neighborhood and easy to bike to campus (only 1.5-2 miles). Bus service from the Near East side of town is regular, reliable and free (for students.) I'm probably going to the April forum, but I haven't received anything about it in the mail. Speaking of which, have you received anything besides your acceptance letter?

where to live in madison
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

I went to undergrad @ UW, and the James Madison Park area and Tenney Park areas are nice, but if you live closer to campus, you will not need to have a car there at all. Most students don't have cars, although quite a few drive mopeds. The law school is halfway up Bascom hill in the middle of campus, and if you live in the Langdon Street area it's only like a 10 minute walk. The end of Langdon towards the Edgewater Hotel is quieter, and there are decent places surrounding the Capitol (on Carroll St, Pinckney St., etc). I would recommend those areas before the parks areas, especially Tenney Park. Also, living closer to campus you can walk to the bars, etc:) If you have any questions let me know:)

Re: Blog
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

I had not heard that the blog would not open in Firefox, but knowing Microsoft's history that does not surprise me. If I had to do it over again, I probably would have started the site on Blogger. If I was called from WI I would definitely consider attending because it is closer to family and Madison is a great city. It would come down to cost, ability to get in-state tuition, local contacts, and "feel" for the school. When I started this whole crazy process WI was actually my #1 choice and remained that until I was waitlisted. If you have more questions please feel free to email me! Best of luck v/r

BTW
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on WI!!! that is awesome!

Tulane
Tuesday, November 01 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on tulane from a fellow UW-L alumn. I got into Loyola NO recently, the new orleans climate is really tempting me to re-locate there. r u seriosuly considering tulane?

A fellow LaX applicant
Friday, January 20 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey, I'm from LaX, Viterbo. Right now Marquette is it, unless I get the nod at Madison. I am especially crossing my fingers, cause the in-state tuition would be huge. Good luck!

in state
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

i actually qualify for in state in both FL and WI--WI because I graduated HS there, and FL because I'm a FL resident now:)

Re: Re: Blog
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

No problem. I should probably post a warning to Firefox users. Glad you like the music!

re: Where do you think you are going to
Saturday, October 29 2005 at 08:00 PM

In response to the question you asked me about a month ago, I haven't answered because I'm just not really sure. I still have 10 schools to hear from, (which at this point is driving me crazy since I applied to all in early Nov!). I visited Wisc. this weekend and loved it, so right now I think its at the top of my list, but I'm visiting Wake Forest in early April and I am sure I will love that one too. And then there is Iowa and they are offering some money and in state tuition if I do 10 hours of reasearch a week, and you're right, its a great school. What about you, what are your thoughts on where you'll be and what is your ideal school?

Thanks...
Wednesday, February 01 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the post. I am pretty excited about possibly going back to my alma mater in Milwaukee! I am still waiting patiently to hear from WI Mad-town. I would LOVE to go to that school. You have some great schools on your list. Let us know your final decision. Right now I am heading out to watch Marquette beat the crap out of Georgetown...go Golden Eagles...but moving from San Diego to Milwaukee again could be a tough one...haha.

Thanks
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

so much for reading my blog!! Makes me feel good, I hope to write a book one day, but don't we all!! I would love to get into Wisconsin, so keep your fingers crossed for me!!! ;0) Is that where you look like you will be going??

hi.
Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

can i ask what you said in your letter to hofstra to get an increase in your scholarship amt? that's really awesome. i am thinking about asking for both an increase in $$$ and a decrease in the gpa requirement. do you think they would be willing to reduce it? 3.25 is a huge risk. good luck on your remaining apps, though i think you are more than satisfied with uw.

Congrats
Thursday, January 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on all your acceptances. Have you decided where you will end up going?

Hofstra Scholarship
Sunday, April 23 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hi, I was also wondering if you could let me know what you said to Hofstra to have them increase your scholarship. Hofstra is my top choice right now, but I could really use a little more $$ as it would a relocation, etc.... Thanks for your help and good luck!!

mem
