Sean started applying to law schools in the beginning of Jan after he got his LSAT score. We didn't expect to hear back from schools for about 6-8 weeks. He applied to 20 schools, I believe. A lot I know, but we got fee waivers so we didn't have to pay the application fees. Sean only wanted to apply to Cal Western, USD, and USC but I told him to apply to more. He apparently misunderstood me because I only meant a few more. Sean sometimes goes a little overboard. Now the waiting game begins... again.
As we waited I grew worried because I knew if we heard bad news for the first couple of schools Sean would start to get discouraged. Thankfully we immediately heard good news! He got an email the following week from an excellent law school in Washington D.C saying he is on the wait list. He expected to be denied by this particular school so being wait listed was a great sign of what was to come. Then 2 days later we got an email from California Western School of Law in downtown San Diego saying he got accepted! It is our # 2 school behind USD. Someone going to school there said, "law school is hell so if your going through hell it might as well be in paradise." Plus the fact that our family is there is a bonus! On top of that Cal Western said in a letter they sent us that they even submitted his credentials to the scholarship committee so in a few weeks we should know if we get a scholarship! So happy! Now the waiting game doesn't seem so bad... Congratulations Sean!
