Apr 9 & 10 - Attended ASW in Streeterville. Northwestern is awesome, Chicago is fun, lots of great students, tons of events. Looking forward to moving.
Mar 18 - Rejected at Hastings, even though I withdrew in December and they acknowledged it. This does little to address their reputation for being unfriendly.
Feb 25 - WUSTL offers $33k over 3 years. Would have outweighed UIUC for me. I withdrew 2 months ago, guess they didn't process it yet.
Feb 24 - Received NU admissions stuff today in a leather portfolio. Most of the info inside is available online. I sent in my intent form a couple weeks ago.
Dec 23 - Withdrew from all other schools. Good luck to those still waiting.
Dec 22 - In at Northwestern! Amazing! Will withdraw from all other schools. Got email this morning, no status checker warning.
Dec 18 - In at Illinois via email, with $45k over 3 years. Great news. Knew it was coming thanks to Dean Pless posting on TLS.
- Also, very friendly call from GMU admitting me. Said to expect packet next week. This may be my last acceptance of the cycle, with two T14s and two UCs left to go.
Dec 17 - George Mason checker tells me to expect a decision by mail in two to four weeks.
Dec 16 - Rejected at UVA via email, no warning from status checker. Wasn't going to get off a waitlist anyway.
- Also, got acceptance packet in the mail from USF. No scholarship, boo.
Dec 15 - Decision rendered at Georgetown. Expecting a rejection, I was happy to get on the regular waitlist. Email came less than an hour after noticing the status checker changed.
- Also, acceptance at USF via email. Expecting USPS packet later.
Dec 14 - In at McGeorge with $45k International Legal Scholarship over 3 years, plus 1L books. Large packet through USPS.
Dec 9 - In at WUSTL! First acceptance of the cycle. They emailed me and gave no status checker warning.
Dec 8 - McGeorge went to decision. Waiting for letter.
Dec 1 - Georgetown status checker puts me back under review, having completed my interview.
Nov 19 - Georgetown asks me to interview with alum.
Nov 16 - Complete everywhere as of a few days ago. No decisions yet, but Cornell and Northwestern owe me responses before the end of December.
Oct 30 - Apps received at all schools. Still waiting for completion at some of them.
Oct 28 - Have applied to all schools on the list. Nothing to do but obsess.
Oct 13 - Completed on-campus interview at NU. ED applicants must interview with admissions in Chicago and are ineligible to interview with alumni closer to home. Campus looked great, very fun trip.
