Rankings are personal preferences and include scholarships (or lack thereof). A ranking of 10 means it was a safety.
4/15/09 - Visit to UVA this past weekend decided it for me. UVA it is.
4/2/09 - Withdrawn at Emory, UGA, UT-Austin, Columbia, Cornell, W&L.
4/2/09 - Well Virginia came through with a scholarship offer. I hadn't even considered them and was starting to kick myself for not doing their financial aid. I called up and asked if I could still do the financial aid and they said no problem at all. I'll be visiting the school on my own next week.
3/27/09 - On "hold" at Northwestern.
3/22/09 - Visited Vanderbilt. I don't see how I'll be going anywhere else.
3/12/09 - Will be withdrawing from all but the top 6 as soon as complete the trips to some schools I'd already bought tickets to visit...
3/11/09 - WUSTL scholarship 111000 dollars. That's a lot of money...
3/9/09 - Cornell scholarship via snail mail. I was nominated for their presidential award, but did not receive it. I'll be visiting the school shortly.
3/5/09 - Vanderbilt scholarship via snail mail. About what I expected and I could not be more excited about it!
2/23/09 - Waitlist at Columbia. Well, technically "on hold". It happens.
2/18/09 - Scholarship offer from Emory. I would love to live in Atlanta, but honestly I'm still leaning Texas for now...
2/15/09 - Sent withdrawal emails to ND, IAB, and L&C.
2/13/09 - Scholarship offer from W&L. Looks like I'll be going to visit the school with that kind of offer...
2/06/09 - In at UVA with a phone call from Mr. Dugas. Nice guy, I'm super excited!!!
1/31/09 - In at Lewis and Clark with 25k a year. As good an offer as I could have hoped for from them. Though 250 overcast days a year? Hmm...
1/26/09 - In at Notre Dame with 20k a year. Not bad at all. A competitive offer with those I've already gotten. We'll see what else comes up.
1/15/09 - Dinged for ED at GW, but accepted RD. GW seems like a great program, but money is a big issue for me, so hopefully something will come along later.
1/9/09 - Acceptance at WUSTL via email, with a note that the scholarship committee is considering my application for a Law Scholars Award. If that comes through, WUSTL will shoot to the top of the list!
1/1/09 - Acceptance at UC-Boulder via snail mail. I like the area, hopefully some money will be coming as well.
12/26/08 - In at Indy-Bloomington. Scholarship is 15k a year. Not really good enough to pull me away from my other offers. I will probably withdraw my app soon.
12/26/08 - Merry day late Christmas to me!! Snail mail from Emory. I'm in!! Very excited about this one, I like the area and the school.
12/22/08 - Snail mail from UT-Austin. Scholarship for 9500 a year and instate tuition!!!! Also in at Washington and Lee!! It's been a good day.
12/20/08 - Snail mail from Cornell, and an invitation for apply for the Dean's Scholarship. Hooray!!!
12/18/08 - Email from Cornell, happy holidays to admitted students. I guess I'm admitted then? No snail mail yet.
12/15/08 - Decision at Cornell in the wee hours of the morning. I thought something was fishy when the date of last update changed on the 11th, and now it says I've had a decision since then. Should be coming soon. I'm excited!!
12/13/08 - Scholarship offer from UGA via snail mail. $7500 a year, and with tuition at 13k a year, UGA is suddenly a very very cheap option.
12/13/08 - Big box from Vanderbilt via snail mail. I'm in!
12/11/08 - In at UT-Austin! Got a nice phone call from Samuel Riley in admissions. Thanks Big Guy!!!
12/11/08 - Decision at Vanderbilt. Guess I have to wait several days to find out what it is. Vandy, you could have just put it up online like a normal person, but Nooooo.... you didn't. Just Kidding! Don't hate me please!
11/17/08 - In at UGA, I'm going to go to law school somewhere!
