Greetings:) I stand corrected, my status checker just says complete, and ready for review, not in review. My apologies and thanks for catching that! Also, I love that you are going for reach schools, there is no reason not to as the outcome is the same if you were to be rejected as if you never applied in the first instance. I wish you good luck and best wishes during your cycle!

No worries! Yeah I'm actually pretty curious to see how this turns out, I've got a pretty unique story and some solid softs so I figured apply super early and see what happens. I was pretty shocked about Vanderbilt and even surprised to be WL'd by Duke because I didn't even submit a Why Duke, overall I feel pretty good!

Congrats on Michigan - I went to UM for undergrad and loved it! I mean this with complete respect, but with a 162/3.23, I'm surprised you got into so many top 20 schools already. Seriously, good for you! (it gives me hope!) If you don't mind me asking, what do you think you did right to get into these schools? Essays? Extra curriculars?

@JacksonArbor. No offense taken. Yes I definitely think Essays and extra-curriculars play a key factor. If you want to talk in more detail PM me, but your own writing is the best way to present yourself. I also had some stellar recs

Hope I don't sound like a creep, but I saw a post you made on TLS, and now that I have found your LSN you are def on my watch list. You are killing your cycle and I hope the acceptances keep flowing your way!

Is your middle name "inspiration"? :) So happy you are having so much success LSNlife, you deserve it! I will be following closely to see if your remaining schools see what everyone else clearly does. Best wishes to you!

Congrats on all your offers! We have similar numbers, a lot of the same schools, and essays are also a major strength area for me. I see your comment above mentioning that you have a pretty unique story, and I'm very curious! I feel like mine is also an asset, but we will see. Would you be up for swapping stories? :)
