Depositing Today! Relief to be DONE thread =)

Postby goosey » Thu Apr 08, 2010 12:49 pm

I am depositing today at Brooklyn--full ride with top 40% stipulation.

Its been a VERY long cycle--I started writing my PS in the summer of 2008..I've been working on this cycle since then and and I am SO GLAD to finally be done and SO READY to start law school.

I got waitlisted everywhere from my safeties to my super-reach. and a few denials in between. And note to future applicants: retake the lsat if you're not happy with your score!!! My feb retake (which was my 3rd attempt following two identical stores in june and september) was the best decision I ever made. Those 5 hours of testing earned me 135k (as long as I stay in the top 40% haha)--so worth it.

Anyway, so this is my celebratory thread! woohooo ::party hat::

Congratulations. Sending in my deposit was the single greatest moment of my last six months. Glad the cycle is over for you too.

Congrats. I can't wait to post a "me, too" in this thread. I think it's going to be a wait until the bitter end...or at least, the bitter first deadline (May 1st).

I'm on so many wait lists. At this point, the first school to admit me is getting a deposit and my undying loyalty.

Nope...I'm waiting on a scholarship offer that probably won't come through. Either way, it'll be done soon! I'm ready to start wearing one of the free ASW t-shirts I picked up. Superstition prevents me from wearing any shirt from a school I haven't totally committed to.

Putting down my deposit was a huge relief on the one hand but now I am absolutely terrified of actually going to law school and trying to compete with a bunch of bright people.

Oh well.

Exact same. Its like college signing day or something. On the day I commit, I will proudly wear that T-shirt. In fact, I have a t-shirt for both schools I'm considering. Neither will be touched until that deposit is sent.

Rutgers-Camden offered me in-state tuition (im from NC) and a $15,000 scholarship, after I told them I needed more help; that means Ill only be paying $10k a year to go to law school. Im going to hold my WL's at Notre Dame and UNC, but I just sealed the envelope to send to Rutgers! It feels good to know that I will be going to a school that actually wants me.

I deposited Tuesday but I'm ED so it doesn't care as much weight. I knew where I was going before Christmas.

Haha my signing day sucked - only 3 local beat reporters showed up. But this was MUCH easier - no feelings involved or relationships with coaches. Just followed the money 8)

Loved sending in my deposit, but I hated writing withdraw e-mails to schools that admitted me with $$$.

Yes, it's lame.
