2 years W/E at a small law firm
One major, time intensive activity that I did all throughout college and continued in the 2 years since.
I've also done some non-profit and political volunteer work.

I submitted 2 letters from professors (one was my thesis advisor); 1 letter from work; and 1 letter from someone involved with my college activity. I also had targeted letters sent to CU and NYU from alums - those were my only targeted letters.

I submitted a diversity essay and did the optional "Why Penn" essay. And, of course, the 250 for Yale.

on Yale and all of your other great schools! We'll probably run into each other at a few ASWs.

on the sweep, YLS acceptance twin! It sure feels nice to have that hurdle down, but I'm still waiting on a couple... I'm sure you're right that we'll run into each other at a few ASWs. Do you have a top choice yet?

Thanks!

I'm going in march as well...still debating between the chinatown bus or splurging on a train =) Leaning towards Yale now, but I'm still waiting to visit everywhere before I set my heart on one school. What about you?

You, Sir, are my hero
Friday, February 01 2008 at 08:25 AM

Congrats on all your success. Would you mind telling me what your major, time-intensive college activity was? I'm curious

I know!
Monday, February 04 2008 at 08:36 AM

I'm pretty shocked by how much personal recruiting there's been. Can't wait to see how they treat us when we visit.

I'll be there if I can free up my schedule a bit. Btw, which site were you at for CTY? I was Palo Alto - somewhat logical, I guess.
