Nice! All worth it in the end!

Thought I'd update you all.

Top 1/3rd at MVPD (around about there)
Chicago: Rejected (deferred ED, rejected RD)
CLS: Rejected (very quick turnaround. very quick)
NYU: Accepted

Heading to NYU. I was hoping to bag one, and I did lol

Set it up like Aluhks said. Chronological order, so new school first. GPA is a matter of choice, but my new school (Chicago) doesnt list one, but says transfers can for this fall if they want.

I'm breathing easier. An A+ salvaged my semester. I think I'm okay... Def. need to drink this process away :)

Anyways, does anyone know if there's a fb group to help with this transition? I know there is a c/o 2011 group, but I still haven't been approved. Is the smartest thing for housing to just go with the school's housing suggestions? And is orientation really August 14th???!!!  :o

Well, I don't think July 1st is a solid date or anything - they aren't going to rescind our acceptance as punishment for our lazy professors, or at least I certainly don't think they would.

I sent McKellop a transcript representing what I have so far (though I sent it in before Property came through yesterday). Best of luck junkie, I certainly hope you don't get rescinded. How bad is "wayyy down?"

Us ED folks- accepted and deferred/accepted alike- are going to have to grab a beer once we're in Chicago, to reminisce about this hellish month and a half of fingerbiting we are going through. And about the LR write-on, which is quite possibly one of the more intellectually painful things I have ever had to do, particularly given the miniscule chances of actually getting on to LR. I'm not that interested in Legal Forum (awesome concept, but I'm not in to Crim Law, which is its focus for this year) or the Intl. Journal.

Oh it may be diff. for the deferred list. GL, everyone!

Isn't the grade submission deadline "to LSAC by July 1st"? 2 of my grades aren't up. My GPA is wayyy down this semester so far though :( I would be crushed if they rescinded...


Sigh... still haven't gotten one of my freaking grades!  >:( >:( The grade submission deadline was Friday, but my Con Law professor is too busy blogging to do her damned job, apparently.

How is everyone else holding up while we wait for final confirmation?

Most of us are busy submitting applications to other schools while trying to avoid contemplating the inevitable. =)

Just curious about everyone's motivations for applying to Chicago. I am working on the app now and having a hard time coming up with good reasons to apply other than its proximity to Wrigley Field  ;D Clerkships? Academia? Ability to freeze to death for 7 months out of the year? All of the above?

...maybe say you are interested in the clinics. They have some of the best clinics in the nation...
Side note: Is anyone else who was accepted ED transfer worried that their final grades wont be posted in time for the July 1st deadline to LSAC? No way all my grades will be in since my profs are moving so slowly.

Got the call this afternoon, too!!! You have nothing to worry about. I asked her about what "consistent performance" meant and she said all it means is you have to pass your classes, cause they need each student to be at the 2L level-- nothing else. After my property exam today, whew! Maybe I still do have some worrying to do :)

I hope this is the case.  When I asked her about it, she didn't say it didn't matter but instead said she didn't expect it to be an issue (which wasn't particularly reassuring to me).

For those that got accepted, are you still trying to write on to law review at your current school or are you putting all your eggs in the Chicago basket?  I'm afraid to skip the write-on competition here, then have my offer rescinded by Chicago.  This would leave me with mediocre grades and no chance for law review.

Yeah, she did say "wont be an issue," but then she kept explaining more where she said it's basically pass your classes. I wouldn't worry too much about word limits (doesn't your prof stop after the maximum, but not throw it out altogether?) My exams this semester were killer (and I still have one to go), but if anything goes wrong with my grades I will beg the profs to reconsider based on the fact that everything is riding on this. The only problem is that I learn my grades so late ( :( ) But I honestly think the whole rescind thing would mean something really disastrous (at least thats what I'll keep telling myself until my exams are done and the grades are posted).

Hey guys, first off, congratulations on your acceptances!  Could you check on your status checker to see if it's switched to "decision pending" or if it's blank?

Nope it says "decision pending." I think that a phone call is the only indication of an acceptance.  The woman said she just spoke with the decision board, but I dunno exactly what "just" means. The good thing is that there's no monetary deposit since it's bidning, so i don't feel too bad about losing the 350 for Georgetown. You'll just receive a letter after a phone call, and they'll send a link to formally save a seat.

I got an acceptance call from them this afternoon.  Pretty cool stuff.

I have to say that sweating out those spring semester grades is going to be hellish for the next 6 weeks since I have no clue how I did and wouldn't be surprised to see a big drop.

Good luck everyone!

Yeah...nothing. But they did just finish taking applications on the 15th. I just hope they move quickly...
