Two letters yesterday. Waitlist from Maryland and wialist from St. John's.  I find this a little strange. I figured I was an auto-rejection at Maryland. And according to LSN I probably should be. So I was pleasantly surprised by the WL. I figured I had a very good shot at getting in at St. John's, so the WL there was a little perplexing.

I sent in both of my WL acceptances (MD made my supply postage and SJU didn't). I (harbor no realistic hopes of getting in off the waitlist. But I figure, why not throw my hat in the ring?

Only 3 more schools to hear from until I am d-o-n-e. That will be nice.  And even though the WL (3 of them total so far) don't offer any kind of concrete answer, they do tell me I can go on about my business of pickig a school I did get into. So at least that's progress.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / George Mason...Right on Schedule

The rejection is not much of a surprise. But I have to admire the accuracy of the information I got from them last week. They said they would start sending letters out on 2/15. And sure enough, one day later, here was the very thin envelope I had been waiting for.

Only 5 more schools pending now. And supposedly Brooklyn's letter is in the mail. But I'm starting to get skeptical of that after nearly a week of waiting for it.

Last Thursday Brooklyn told me me decision was in the mail. I figured there was a decent chance it would get to me (in DC) over the weekend. It didn't come. So I figured a Monday delivery was a sure bet. Not so much.

At this point I find myself trying to analyze the delivery patterns of the mail. In any event, I'm guessing since I did not get an acceptance email that the Brooklyn letter will be a small one.

Choosing the Right Law School / Info on George Mason decisions
« on: February 10, 2005, 06:05:03 PM »
I spoke with the George Mason admissions office this morning and they told me (although LSN shows a good amount of acceptances already) that they were going to start mailing out decisions on Feb. 15 (Tuesday). Now, it could be that is when all the rejections are coming. That's what I'm expecting. But I just thought I would pass this nugget along.

I called Villanova today to check on my status. After first telling me that my file hasn't been reviewed yet, she put me on hold for a couple of minutes. Then she came back and said they had made a decission, the letter has been sent, and that I got in. Kind of weird that she told me over the phone, but so be it. Still, I'd like to have the letter in my hands though.

Choosing the Right Law School / Letter on the way from Brooklyn

I just spoke to the admissions office at Brooklyn and they told me a decision has been made and the letter has been sent. I was so excited to know that something was coming that I forgot to ask when the letter was sent.

This could make sitting through a full day of work a real female dog today.

It's about time. I have been expecting this BU rejection for some time now. It's actually a relief to get this out of the way. It's not like I was a tough denial for them either. They've had my stuff since mid November.

In an effort to be optimistic I was imagining that the delay meant something in my app had intrigued them. But then I looked at LSN and got over that. So now the city of Boston is officially out for me.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / NY Law + $
« on: February 07, 2005, 07:10:55 AM »
I got accepted to NY Law. The letter was dated 1/31 but came last friday. It came in a standard business envelope, but it was thick.  They offered me $10k, renewable if I maintain a 3.2 GPA. I thought that was a little weird because to renew $5k from Rutgers-Camden I need a 3.5. Maybe Rutgers was less impressed.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / WL at Cardozo
« on: February 04, 2005, 09:58:26 AM »
I got waitlisted at Cardozo. They require you to send a letter within 2 weeks stating your desire to stay on the waitlist.  The package from them included a letter about their PT Day program that starts in May. After a full year of PT Day classes you start up your 2nd year at FT. 

I guess I'll ask to be considered for both.

When is the earliest they will dip into the waitlist? Late April?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / No Dice at Temple
« on: February 04, 2005, 09:51:29 AM »
161, 3.1.

Rejected from Temple. They were my realistic first choice (considering I never had a chance at Penn, Georgetown, GW, etc). 

I sent a letter letting them know they were my first choice. I guess it didn't get me over the hump.
