Choice rank = Chiashu %.
Scholarship amount = total for 3 yrs.
03/28/08: Columbia sent an email talking about my situation (being on hold). What? I never got a hold letter! Cycle ovr, man.
03/10/08: Got an "on hold" letter from Chicago. Suggested I write an essay on one of three prompts. That's a deferral, right?
03/03/08: In at UCLA via phonecall.
02/22/08: in @ USC
02/05/08: UT offered $7k/year as well as resident tuition - a similar offer to W&M's. That means it would cost me only around $11k/year to attend there.. sigh.
01/31/08: In at UT via phone call (they left a voicemail).
01/23/08: In at Cardozo with Paulsen scholarship (full tuition & stipend). Hmm.
01/04/08: Visited Berkeley (and the rest of the bay area) before the new year. Loved it, am stoked.
So what happens now? I'm going to start withdrawing in a couple of weeks, though I'm waiting to hear from a few other schools. Almost thinking of applying to Cornell and Penn and Michigan, which all sent me fee waivers recently, just to keep my options open.
12/28/07: Accepted to GULC via an envelope the size of 3 hydrogen atoms laid end to end.
Also, my acceptance package from Berkeley came on the 26th - with the pretty Cal folder all crushed by my mailman.
12/23/07: Beginning to regret not applying to NYU. Think it's too late? Also I took away my numbers completely because.. because. Will add them & my real ECs when I hear from a few more schools ;)
12/20/07: IN AT BOALT VIA EMAIL OHHHHHH MY CHRIST
12/13/07: W&M acceptance via snail mail, large FedEx envelope. Offered $17,000/yr and a fellowship (they'd give me in-state tuition + $4k stipend + another 3k). Pretty psyched.
12/06/07: Cycle off to a tepid start with a waitlisting from Duke. Uh.. fuck.
12/06/07: UT status checker says I'm complete.. cool?
12/04/07: Pressed send on Columbia and predicting it to be the speediest rejection of the lot. Pressed send and sent in my certifying statements to UW and USC. Applied to Cardozo and W&M last night after looking over their viewbooks.
12/03/07: It's December?
11/26/07: Pressed send on Boalt. This is me dreaming a little dream.
11/24/07: After weeks and weeks and weeks of totally avoiding anything related to law school, I pressed "send" on UCLA, Chicago, Texas, and Gtown. Both my LORs have been sent to LSAC, too; just waiting for them to be received and processed..
11/03/07: Michigan fee waiver, snail mail. Convinced me to apply!
10/31/07: Harvard spammed me today. Whatever, Toby.
10/29/07: Chicago fee waiver. :)!
10/25/07: Transmitted Duke application; still waiting on LORs.
10/24/07: UCLA FEE WAIVER! Mmm.
10/23/07: LSAC finally receives my CC transcript. Amusingly, that extra .03 gave me a weird little boost in Chiashu numbers. Fee waiver & priority track invitation from Duke (!!! :D).
10/22/07: Columbia fee waiver by e-mail! Well, that was nice of them. I've heard some cynical ideas about fee waivers, but right now it just means 70 more bucks in my pocket. Also, somewhat less thrillingly, a U. St. Thomas fee waiver.
