It seems that we are as about as close to number twins as you can get. All of your Index's are the same (except i have a .1 lead at wash U...badass) Good luck, I hope we go somewhere great.

Hey good luck this cycle! we have similar numbers and are applying to several of the same schools. Hope we get in! :-)

it's fun being a splitter. good luck to you too

- doppleradar
  • yep
  • Friday, January 02 2009 at 04:37 PM

yep, our numbers are very similar...it will be an interesting cycle for those of us in this boat. we're probably great examples of how soft factors can sway admissions committees

Thanks. Wow I thought I was applying to a lot of schools. Hope you get into the one you want!

and congratulations on your acceptances. I will be paying attention to your cycle as we have similar numbers and some of the same schools. Do you know what your first choice is yet? Good luck!

It's nerve-racking being a splitter, you never know what you're going to get. Good luck!

  • Georgetown
  • Friday, January 16 2009 at 09:06 AM

Yeah, I'm not optimistic, it's a very tough school to get into. Cornell and Duke are my only remaining T14 schools remaining!

- Moruitelda
  • well
  • Friday, January 23 2009 at 06:31 PM

people have told me BC trumps BU if you want to stay in town afterwards, but I;m not a native so hard to say. Congrats on Minn. - your top choice?

- doppleradar
  • RE: GULC
  • Sunday, January 25 2009 at 05:13 AM

Yeah, it stinks about Georgetown. Out of those that have accepted me thusfar, I'm leaning towards Washington and Lee, although I'd like the D.C. market for George Mason and IU is attractive because of the scholarship I already know I have. Obviously, Duke and Cornell would be my top picks still, but I'm not holding out hope, George Washington is probably my number 1 right now.

Congrats to you, too! Looks like you've got a great record so far - best of luck with the rest of your decisions!

Congrats on George Washington! You give me hope! I hope that it wasn't Political Campaign Manager that put you over the top, because this is my number one at this point! Maybe we'll be classmates there! ;)

you and i have been having nearly an identical cycle so far.

  • Wednesday, February 04 2009 at 10:32 AM

Congrats on Boston College! Any thoughts about preference as your cycle stands so far? Mine's looking (while more limited) very similar to yours, and UIUC is looking very attractive with the money/prestige equation. Good luck on the rest of your cycle!

Sent you one, curious about something.

- Moruitelda
  • thank you!
  • Friday, February 06 2009 at 08:56 PM

its so nice to have that agonizing uncertainty over and done with. from the looks of your lengthy acceptance list you cant really go wrong--congrats! but hopefully i do end up seeing you in the fall at hastings...you really cannot beat san francisco any time of the year! :) take care and best of luck deciding

Congrats on Notre Dame! I'm waiting on my own, but I applied late, after they sent me a fee waiver, and might be waiting for a while.

- Moruitelda

On ND. That email is a huge relief

Touche! So have you narrowed down your choices?

- psanders82
  • UIUC
  • Thursday, February 19 2009 at 07:48 AM

Are you planning on going to any of their open houses? I'm going to be at the one in about 3 weeks, it's a slight front-runner for me. Good luck in the rest of your cycle!

- Moruitelda
  • congrats to you!!
  • Tuesday, February 24 2009 at 06:23 AM

on those acceptances, from a fellow banana slug :)

- rosieposie
  • Congrats!
  • Tuesday, March 03 2009 at 03:42 AM

Good job on Oregon. It's amazing how long William and Mary is taking, my cycle is done except for them and Cornell, and I didn't have any kind of problems with W&M (that could explain the delay) like I did with Cornell!

- Moruitelda
  • Congrats!
  • Sunday, March 15 2009 at 08:25 PM

Looks like you have a lot of choices, narrowed it down yet to where you are going?

- Derrida
  • UIUC
  • Monday, March 16 2009 at 06:33 AM

I know that you weren't able to make the admitted students day, but I think that you should keep it in mind with that scholarship. I was highly impressed by their faculty and plans for the future.

- Moruitelda
  • ND!
  • Thursday, March 19 2009 at 04:40 PM

Yup, I'm still planning on ND unless the impossible happens with Duke or Cornell. I'm going out to Indiana to visit in April.

- AppleP
  • Yeah
  • Friday, March 20 2009 at 08:50 AM

Definitely my top choice at this point. Holding out on putting in my deposit in case William and Mary or George Mason come in with a crazy high scholarship, or I get off the wait list into GW before the deposit would be due.

- Moruitelda
  • William and Mary
  • Thursday, March 26 2009 at 11:37 AM

Waitlisted you too, huh? Man, they must have gotten a bunch of applicants that the other schools we applied to did not. Lower ranked than UIUC or W&L, but waitlisting us where they accepted us. Strange.

- Moruitelda
  • chioces choices
  • Tuesday, March 31 2009 at 05:09 AM

hmm not so sure. havent received scholarship/fin aid information yet from tulane or madison. cost is a real concern for me so i may have to wait to see whats the least expensive option. i like tulanes programs a little bit more, but am open to madison. i need to research alumni a bit more. how about you? you have a difficult (but awesome) choice to make

- rosieposie
  • thanks!
  • Wednesday, April 01 2009 at 02:01 PM

i am thrilled to be attending hastings in the fall. the combination of beautiful san francisco and the connections/opportunities available there and the greater bay area really made the decision easy for me. the chance to sit for class on the same block as city hall and nearly all levels of court is just something you cant find anywhere else. plus i love northern california and the hastings name is well-regarded here. so...have i sold you yet? :) best of luck with your decision-making and hopefully we can be classmates in the fall!

- justletmein

How'd your visit at UIUC go?

- Moruitelda
  • USNWR Leak
  • Monday, April 20 2009 at 07:26 AM

Looks like GWU took a hit down to #28, Illinois, Notre Dame and Indiana are up to #23. Food for thought!

- Moruitelda
  • Davis
  • Friday, May 01 2009 at 09:48 AM

Hi, sorry to bother, but i'm begging you to withdraw from Davis if you're not planning to attend. With my stats it's miracle i'm waitlisted at Davis and I'm hoping for another miracle to be accepted :)

- itried
  • thanks!
  • Sunday, May 10 2009 at 02:51 PM

thank you and good luck in DC or San Fran! whichever you choose :)

  • Need housing?
  • Tuesday, July 21 2009 at 08:57 PM

Hi, are you looking for housing in the Tower? I was accepted at UC Hastings and was planning on attending, but there has been a change of plans. I currently have a lease for the upcoming year for the Tower. It is a STUDIO on the 7th floor. I picked this room because it was a corner room - which means that it is a little bit bigger and has 4 windows - which means more light. It is $1050 per month and that includes everything. Please let me know if you are interested ASAP. I even booked a time for the elevator so that you can move in more conveniently and not have to wait for the elevator upon moving in. Thanks :)
