Applicant Information

Top Private

Demographic Information

New York

Extra Curricular Information

lots-o-stuff :) including solid WE

some good LORs - lets hope they will prove to be of some avail :)

blah blah blah ... :)

will update this section with details further down the cycle

fell free to ask questions or leave comments :)


Where I want to go:
#1 - NYU (because of their international law program)
#2 - Harvard (because of their international law program)
#3 - Georgetown (ditto to #1 and #2)
#4 - U Penn
#5 - UC Berkeley
#6 - Duke

Safety Schools:
- Vanderbilt
- Boston U

Just for fun (couldn't live with the "what if" ... haha):
- Yale
- Stanford

SO ... a friend of mine (similar numbers) just got a Butler at Columbia ... So I decided to apply there. I figure because I am so late in the cycle, it will most likely NOT be a woo! haha ... but again, i just couldn't live with the "what if" ... so there ... woo!? we'll see :p


woo! for Georgetown (i'm super psyched about getting in here ... it was a target school so i'm happy) came in small envelope

woo! for Vandy (safety school - i'll withdrawl soon) came in small envelope

Berkeley sent an email saying that they were going to hold my application for further review ... but that i had "passed an initial screening" ... woo!? we'll see :p

Penn sent an email saying that they were going to hold my app for further consideration ... woo!? we'll see :p

Received the little white envelope with a clear window from Stanford today ... definately not a woo! ... haha first rejection .... stings a little but i'll be ok

Ouch, got dinged at Yale (of course this comes as no surprise, but there could've been at least one acceptance between the two rejections, right? haha) ... oh well, definately not a woo! ... they were impressed with the originality of my 250 essay though ... go figure! Letter came in a small white envelope.

Wow ... So I wrote an email to Vandy to follow up on scholarships/financial aid questions ... they told me I was going to be receiving $75,000. Unfortunately though, I don't see myself going there, so I withdrew before the temptation becomes "too big" ... hahaha ... hopefully GULC will make a similar offer :)

Ok ... hmmm ... following up with some of the schools since I haven't heard from them in a while ... just found out that was accepted to BU ... woo! Prob will withdraw soon though ... although they did say I was being considered for a scholarship :)

Duke Duke Duke ... Got a nice email today from Duke. They were very optimistic about offering admissions ... BUT ... for the time being I was placed on their waitlist ... hmmm ... it's unlikely they will offer any $$$ so I'm most likely going to withdraw. I'll ride it out for now ... therefore, a non-emphatic "woo" :p

waiting ... t-e-d-i-u-m ... ok ... over it :) woo!

ouch ... this one actually hurts ... the "third" ding out of the HYS ... today I was dinged at HLS via email ... ok ... not a woo! ... don't know what to say ... good thing GULC is at least tied with HLS in international law :) common NYU!!!

woo! Finally heard back from UC Berkeley ... when I didnt get "the call" welcoming me to Boalt Hall ... I was concerned. However, I g ot materials along with a letter in the mail today. Called UC Berk to find out they had tried to call but weren't able to get a hold of me!!! Although I am excited about getting into Boalt ... I dont see them offering $$$ ... therefore, I am likely to withdraw my app soon ... woo! for G-Town and COMMON NYU!!!

So ... got a letter from Columbia. On "reserve" (I'm thinking that means I have been deferred/waitlisted) ... woo?! Common Columbia ... show me some love :)

BTW - Haven't hear a word from NYU ... hmmmm ... kind of worried :(

Finally ... my cycle is coming to an end ... woo!

Got the U Penn waitlist ... decided to withdraw!
Withdrew from the Duke waitlist!

AND I feel as if this will make SOME people happy ... haha ... WITHDREW from BERKELEY!!! WOO! I hope this helps one of you out :)

So now I'm waiting for NYU (and the Columbia deferral) ... Am really excited about GULC (the $$$ above is just scholarship .... maybe I can get some Fin. Aid too ... that would be sweet!)

Hurray!!! My cycle is OVER ... Fortunately NYU took forever to send me a decision (I got it on last week) and I was still able to "negotiate" with GULC ... they bumped my scholly up! WOO!

So, GULC it is! I will see you HOYA LAWYA's come August!

Penn sent me an email. NYU called my dad, who is an alum, to tell him but I think that is a special case. I got the package in the mail 2 weeks later.

Thanks! Penn called my cell phone while I was at work - I made sure I took the call when I saw the 215 area code! Just a short chat welcoming me to the admitted class. No emails beforehand, other than the financial aid reminder. Good luck!

LSDAS massacred your GPA! I sympathize...I was a 3.5 at my undergrad school and now I'm a 3.37. Any clue what happened? I couldn't get a handle on mine, so I included my transcript as a PDF with my apps.

As of today, probably UT, Harvard, or UCLA.

Well, if they gave me a scholarship that might change. ;) What's your top choice?

Penn was a WL. I have until 2/20/08 to submit additional materials (up to a 2 pg. essay) or extra LORs. Doesn't look good though. Hope things turn out better for you with them!

Penn asked me for my grades, but never "officially" deferred me, i guess. Good luck for the rest of your cycle!

i'm also aiming for international law, so we have a similar list of schools where we want to go. good luck on NYU, i'm sure you'll hear good news soon!

  • NYU, probably

I visited Georgetown and really liked it, but I'm leaning toward NYU out of the schools I've gotten into. Would go to Harvard if accepted and definitely consider Berkeley if they let me in (since I've been in NYC for a long time, think a change would be nice). You?

I actually found out about the deferral from an email from them... i was totally shocked! very happy not to be flat out rejected...

They left a voice mail and I called back. I got my MA there so my chances are "very good" - their words, not mine. I have to submit a few supplemental materials because of my LSAT score.

You asked over on my account. My NYU rejection came in the mail in a regular small envelope. Good luck on the rest of your cycle.

Please withdraw soon from Berkeley if you really do not want to go there. The reviews by the Faculty Committee are starting soon!

NYU letter was dated 3-18. Really wanted NYU but I am looking forward to visiting GULC. UVA is still on the radar and I would think about them if they offered.
