Title: Two Fatal Shots
Post by: SSU_Mike on February 01, 2005, 11:10:05 AM
I got rejected at Chapman last week and Valporaiso yesterday. Nothing ruins your day like getting that little white envelope. I love the way they try to butter you up before grabbing you by the jugular. Oh well, hopefully cal western takes me....

Yeah, sorry bud. Rejections suck a fat one, but all ya need is one acceptance and the rejections become a distant memory. Good luck!  ;D

Thanks for the kind words. I knew I wouldn't get into Chapman and I only applied to Valpo b/c it was free. I don't think I would trade living in the Bay Area for Indiana anyways (no offenese Indianians)

Oh don't worry, none taken. I'm originally from Indiana and I spent the first 18 years of my life trying to get out.   You don't want to live in Valpo, it's pretty flat and boring (no offese people who life there, but it's got nothing on SF other than cheap land) :)

Sorry to hear about it nonetheless. Good luck with the rest of your applications!

Sorry about the dings but Good luck with Cal Western. I really like the school the professors are great and friendly, the students are not vicious, the bar passage rate is impressive, and the California Innocence Project is amazing. The whole enviornment is very San Diego, laidback. I seriously considered going to CWSL because of the joint program with UCSD's Political Science PhD program. Unfortunately it's damn near impossible to get into UCSD's Poli Sci grad program as a UCSD undergrad.

Sorry to hear about the dings. Good luck on Cal Western. My friend is going there now. He's a non-URM with a 2.8 GPA and a 151. I think you've got a great chance. If not, I'll put some of my acceptances in the mail to you. You can smudge out the name and have your pick. I don't know if they'll question your diversity scholarships thought. ;)

Is it too late to write an addendum? Can you call the schools you've been rejected from and ask them for advice? (I dunno, it work with jobs.) Then send updated information to schools you haven't yet heard from? Good luck! I really want some acceptances for you!

Cal Western... What's the story with that school. Is it on par with TJ, Chapman, and Whittier? Curious, cause I might apply.
