thought i'd say hi and good luck, we've got similar #z and schools so hope all goes well.

You are right, we have very similar numbers and schools we are interested in. Hope I get a quick Duke acceptance like you so I can have peace of mind :)... one comment though, why Yankees?

- virusny
  • Yankees
  • Wednesday, October 24 2007 at 09:44 AM

Aha I understand. I'm a big Mets fan, and I happen to be a Yankee hater (dont see too many Mets fans that root for Yankees, though Yankee fans often root for the Mets). Otherwise, I root for all NY sports teams, other than the Yanks :)

Did Duke give you any money?

- darkknight
  • I agree
  • Saturday, October 27 2007 at 10:55 AM

I am not applying to either GW, Fordham or the Boston schools (either of them) without a fee waiver. I sent all four of them an email to try and solicit a fee waiver from them. But yes, without a fee waiver I wont apply to them unless Duke, Cornell and Columbia reply with a negative answer in December.

Yeah, I am priority track, but the status checker on their site says I'm still not complete for some reason. But thanks for the Georgetown congrats!

Thank you for the Duke congrats. The pressure is off both of us. Worst case scenario we're at Duke next year :)

  • Duke Acceptance package?
  • Tuesday, November 13 2007 at 07:23 AM

My Duke acceptance package has yet to arrive although they told me they were sending it shortly a week and a half ago on their acceptance email. Have you received yours yet? If so, any fantastic goodies inside? (Like a Blue Devils shirt or something) Let me know!

- virusny
  • thanks!
  • Friday, November 30 2007 at 09:18 AM

Congrats on Vanderbilt and Duke - I bet more good news for you is on its way!

  • WHY!!!
  • Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 05:03 AM

Why must Michigan keep us waiting? I cant take doing even one more status check...

- virusny
  • Congratulations
  • Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 06:43 AM

On Cornell! I'm dying to hear back from them!

- justagirl
  • Congratulations
  • Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 07:25 AM

On all of today's great news... of course including Cornell. I think there's a high likelihood we end up at the same law school... still upset about your support of the Evil Empire Yankees though :)

- virusny
  • Cornell
  • Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 10:07 AM

Congrats on Cornell! I didn't apply there because I'll be part of a two body move and the other body ruled out living in Ithaca.

- funkyduck
  • Columbia...
  • Thursday, December 13 2007 at 04:28 AM

Eh, deferral there didnt sting that much. I mean I know I'm not gonna make it in now, but at least my application was worthy enough not to be thrown in the trash right away. So yea lol, live and let live. Hope we hear from Michigan soon, and I get Cornell news like you... :)

Don't worry about them yet my number twin... so far we've had the same fate in every school, and I have a feeling we're both going to be in at the Big House!

- virusny
  • Congrats
