4-22-08 Withdrew from everywhere but Yale, which I'll be attending in the fall. Go Bulldogs!
3-21-08 Withdrew from Duke.
2-29-08 Levy scholarship at Penn. And the plot thickens! Also, I never called Stanford, so still no word from them. Is this one of those things where the girl says she'll call but then she never does, and you leave one too many voicemails on her phone before you realize what's happening?
2-08-8 Considering calling Stanford as I haven't heard a peep out of them since going complete almost four months ago. C'mon guys, I know you're mysterious and all, but what's the deal?
1-30-08 Phone call from Michigan -- offered a full Darrow!
1-25-08 Accepted at Columbia as a Butler Fellow via letter. Half-tuition for three years! Me likey.
1-22-08 Accepted at UChicago with a phone call! I optimized my celebration by determining that the Pareto efficient outcome (assuming no transactional costs and strictly defined property rights) was to write a letter to my senator advocating the abolishment of all 'fair trade' laws.
12-19-07 Accepted at Yale with a phone call!
12-17-07 Accepted at UPenn with a phone call!
12-08-07 Accepted at NYU! With a letter dated 12/03.
12-01-07 Accepted at Michigan!
11-21-07 Accepted at Harvard. But in even bigger news, I saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico!
