Applicant Information

Political Science

Demographic Information

1-2 Years

Extra Curricular Information

Your usuals: leadership positions in various student organizations, lots of community service, and a few internships here and there.

I'll update/reveal more of my information when the cycle is over.

Scholarships (if any) are shown over three years.


Still working at it. No matter what happens, this will be my last one. Good luck to everyone!

11/24 -- Got up this morning, pulled up the status checker and saw that they made a decision. Checked back at lunch and I'm in at W&M!! My first acceptance! This takes a lot of pressure off.

12/1 -- Personal email from the admissions office. In at UB with a full ride!

12/8 -- Dinged at Georgetown via email. For proper record keeping, my status changed to Decision Rendered on 12/1.

12/10 -- In at Maryland via snail mail but with a large envelope. Went to Decision on 12/4.

12/16 -- Dinged at UVA. I saw it coming. But for a stock email, it sounded very sincere.

12/24 -- Sigh... Big D at Cornell. But hey, it's a lot better than what COULD'VE happened.

1/15 -- I sent Cornell a LOCI and an additional LOR. Also, I got an email from Harvard. I'm on hold. Off to writing another LOCI...

2/3 -- Held at Northwestern via email. I could write a book on LOCI's at this point.

2/10 -- Waitlisted at Chicago via email. I don't even have to say it. You know what's coming next.

2/26 -- Waitlisted at Michigan via email. Staying positive. I've gotten into two pretty good schools so far. As far as I'm concerned, I'm all good.

3/13 -- Out at Columbia via tiny snail mail envelope. Like I said before, I'm still in the running at schools where I was certain I had no chance. For all intents and purposes, things are still looking good for me.

4/12 -- After my interview, Maryland offered me a nice scholarship. So unless I hear back from the two Ivy's, I'll be heading to Baltimore in the Fall.

4/22 -- Another one bites the dust... Coincidentally, I learned I'm still in the running at Cornell. Bittersweet day.

4/29 -- WL'd at Northwestern. Still waiting on Cornell.

5/26 -- With the final seat deposit due in less than a week, I'm kissing my Ivy League ambitions goodbye. Maryland, here I come!

Our numbers are exactly the same! You will have to keep me updated with Harvard, you're more gutsy than I am. :) lol Best of luck to you! The LSAT is a pain, I have taken it several times and hope I never have to take it again.

We have the same LSAT, I have a short list too, but only because I have to stay in Chicago. Hopefully we will get in somewhere, so we won't have to face that dreadful test again and it will be a thing in our past. Best wishes to you, somehow I feel that you will be fine, funny I don't feel the same for myself. Right now I am trying to figure out how to get off my top pick waitlist.

Sorry to see your rejection. I was wondering if you might have considered applying to more 3rd and 4th tier schools? To me, a degree is a degree, no matter where it is from. I think you have a good chance of getting in somewhere.

  • Harvard???

LOL! Love it - you go man! Sorry to hear that you did not get in at Baltimore. My scores are slightly higher than yours so I'm worried! I hope I don't have to take the LSAT again either - Water torture for sure! Well best of luck - let us know what Harvard says!!
