Additional info & updates

Very anxious to be in law school. Hoping for the best for everyone.
Trying to put as much info here to help everyone out.

Basically, NYU / CLS were always my top choices as I wanted to stay in NYC. Obviously a decision from HLS or YLS or money at another T6 would have complicated things, but realistically NYU and CLS were my top.

Luckily, things didn't get complicated and my whole process was very anticlimactic. I heard from NYU first - 2 weeks after I applied. I was speechless as I opened the package and I still think that I am dreaming.

Anyway, withdrew from most other schools quickly thereafter. Here's the info I can provide about the notifications from the schools I stuck with:

NYU - big, first class envelope.

CLS - small envelope.

Brooklyn - e-mail from status check.

Fordham - e-mail from status check.

Hofstra - big first class envelope.

Emory - big first class envelope.

Yale - small envelope.

Penn - small envelope.

Georgetown - small envelope.

Other than that, not sure how else I can help. Good luck to all of you. Please feel free to ask me questions. I won't be checking this often but I will check it.

looks like we are applying to many of the same schools with similar numbers and both late in the cycle! hopefully we will start to hear good news soon!

Congrats!
Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 07:40 PM

On NYU!

Congrats!
Thursday, January 31 2008 at 01:20 PM

on NYU! Looks like your cycle is about to pick up, and what a way to start! Maybe I'll see you at ASW.

thanks
Wednesday, February 06 2008 at 01:00 PM

and if this whole law thing doesn't work out maybe I have a future as a story teller....good luck on the rest of your cycle! I am sure many great acceptances are headed your way

thanks!
Wednesday, February 06 2008 at 07:01 PM

Hey thanks! Looks like you're off to a great start. Any idea where you want to end up?

Emory
Thursday, February 07 2008 at 01:41 PM

Just curious but did you get an acceptance phone call from Emory before you received the envelope?

Thanks for your quick response. Congrats on Emory and on NYU!

Thanks
Friday, February 08 2008 at 03:33 PM

And congratulations to you, also. You are doing pretty well for a few weeks after sending them in! Any ideas where you want to go (since you will clearly have lots of choices)...

Kind words
Sunday, February 10 2008 at 09:05 AM

Thank you very much for the kind words. Would feel better if I had your numbers but it is what it is. Best of luch to you as well. I know that you will do very well this cyle.

thanks
Wednesday, February 13 2008 at 06:14 PM

looks like you'll be having some major success this cycle as well! best of luck!

THANKS!!
Thursday, February 14 2008 at 06:40 AM

Not sure where I'm headed but right now it's between NYU and Berkeley. Hoping for one last admit (CLS) then I will have to see. Good luck with the remainder of your cycle.

Thanks
Saturday, February 16 2008 at 03:37 PM

Thanks for the message -- I don't go to Stern/NYU, I go to a different school in NYC. Congrats on NYU though, its a great acceptance!

Thanks
Tuesday, February 19 2008 at 01:47 AM

For your thanks! Looks like you're pretty set on somewhere in New York. I am not sure yet whether NYU or Columbia is better (and for me), though at this point the money would definitely swing me to Columbia. What's your preference?

NYU it is
Tuesday, February 26 2008 at 05:26 PM

unless someone else wants to pay for my education...highly unlikely

Thanks
Thursday, February 28 2008 at 12:40 PM

Thanks for the kind note. I'm no longer at NYU, but I did go to Stern for undergraduate. Congrats on your acceptances!

thanks for the note, congrats to you too! any idea where you'll end up going? looks like we're both still waiting for responses to a lot of the same schools...

Congrats on NYU

Right now I'm leaning towards taking the scholarship at Vanderbilt. Money from NYU could change my mind, but I doubt that I'll get any.

RE: Congrats!
Wednesday, March 05 2008 at 04:42 AM

Thanks! Congrats on your NYU acceptance as well. I'm visiting Chicago in April b/c I'm pretty split b/w the two. It's probably coming down to financial aid. I noticed you didn't withdraw from Columbia (or GULC) - could either of them really stop you from enrolling at NYU?

Thanks!!
Wednesday, March 05 2008 at 04:28 PM

Congrats to you too on your acceptances so far. UVA definitely tugs at my heart a little bit, but I think I'll visit at least a few. I have a crush on Harvard too, but they're playing hard to get. Do you have any top choices?

thanks
Friday, March 07 2008 at 05:41 PM

and congrats on yours too! i take it you're leaning toward nyu at this point. i think i am as well... really love the city and the public interest program. but it's a tough decision and i'll definitely be making some visits over the next month. good luck with the rest of your applications!

on the acceptances so far! Are you going to the NYU ASW?

Wednesday, March 12 2008 at 09:31 AM

thanks! congrats to you too! feels good, doesn't it? Yeah, I will probably end up going in the fall, and I'm definitely going to an ASW. I already sat in on a couple of classes to scope it out and really liked it.

NYU ASW

I'll be at the April 18th ASW. Already booked my flight!

ASDs
Sunday, March 16 2008 at 05:58 AM

NYU is great! I'm in a similar situation, where only a Harvard acceptance would prevent me from going to UVA. I'm trying to keep an open mind though... I went to the UVA ASD and am planning on NYU and Michigan's.

thanks
Wednesday, March 19 2008 at 03:40 PM

I'm not totally sure. It's up to Columbia/Chicago/Harvard, I think I'd rather go to one of those three instead. But I'm very very pleased to be accepted to NYU, even if we're a bit young :)

absolutely!
Wednesday, March 26 2008 at 04:46 PM

I'm thinking of going to the last ASD, but I might go to the next one if I can get plane fare at a reasonable price. You?

NYU
Wednesday, April 02 2008 at 02:44 PM

Thanks, and congrats to you on NYU. Is that where you will be going? And, have you attended one of the Admitted Student Days?
