how did you go complete so quickly at chicago? do you go to school there? when did you get a fee waiver?

Monday, September 24 2007 at 09:52 AM

congrats on duke..did you get an application status checker email prior to your acceptance? any scholarship info?

Wednesday, September 26 2007 at 06:35 AM

Congrats on Duke to you too! It definitly was a surprise on a Sunday! Does your Duke status checker still say no decision? Since we got in on Sunday, maybe they haven't updated it yet, but it's making me nervous that they admitted me by mistake!

Wednesday, September 26 2007 at 11:35 AM

Ok, mine is doing the same thing (where it can't pull my record). I think it's a good sign that our status checkers are both being weird. I mean, they didn't accidentally admit BOTH of us. The system must just be updating. Very relieved.

Thursday, September 27 2007 at 01:34 PM

hey! i see that our applications were both received at H on the same day--nice! when do you think it will go complete?

Tuesday, October 02 2007 at 09:05 PM

On Duke!

good luck
Thursday, October 18 2007 at 12:19 PM

it looks like you should be hearing from some schools in the next few weeks...

Tuesday, October 30 2007 at 07:02 AM

hls interview yet?--not me:)

Saturday, November 03 2007 at 02:12 AM

It's weird that you haven't gone complete yet. Are you concerned?

Friday, November 09 2007 at 01:50 PM

word from HLS? don't you hate Friday's email anticipation...(sigh)

Good luck with your apps this cycle - thanks for the encouragement on LSD. I think your numbers are amazing and I would be surprised if you DIDN'T into some T5 schools.

Friday, November 16 2007 at 06:37 AM

on Michigan!

Friday, November 16 2007 at 06:46 AM

...jealous of your numbers and acceptances - keep it going! CONGRATS!

Friday, November 16 2007 at 07:51 AM

On Michigan!

Sunday, November 18 2007 at 04:13 PM

on Michigan. I'm sure it bodes well for the remainders.

Monday, November 19 2007 at 02:46 PM

Thanks!! And congrats on Duke and Michigan! I bet you'll hear from Berkeley soon too.

Tuesday, November 20 2007 at 06:31 AM

On Duke and Michigan!

First 2
Sunday, November 25 2007 at 03:42 PM

Acceptances of many, I'm sure, for you as well :)

Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 04:35 AM

Did you get an email from Berk. saying your file was under review? How long after that did you receive a decision?

Thursday, December 06 2007 at 10:38 PM

Well, since the TS e-mail is a Friday thing, I can check my e-mail box obsessively tomorrow. Congrats on Boalt Hall. I'm kinda starting to worry about them. I know its earlier, but it seems like a lot of the stronger candidates heard back within two weeks of going complete.

I got the Toby Stock e-mail today. Good luck to you!

Saturday, December 08 2007 at 11:49 AM


Sunday, December 09 2007 at 04:01 PM

Yeah, I tried to apply early, as you did. I'm sure that you'd be accepted to those schools too, if you'd applied. I haven't heard from Harvard, and I wonder if it's because I didn't have a 4.0 or go to a top undergrad school. Here's to both of us getting an email next Friday!

Good Luck
Friday, December 14 2007 at 01:24 PM

I think the call will go well for you. Hopefully he gives the acceptance calls before x-mas break. (Like he did with the 12/11 people)

Monday, December 17 2007 at 10:09 AM

I got the TS email the same day as you. Anything out of Cambridge yet? Do you think we'll hear yay or nay pre-break?

Monday, December 17 2007 at 03:08 PM

I certainly hope so. Someone on TLS said that the people who interviewed the equivalent of this week last cycle didn't hear about acceptances until after the first. Anyway, I hope we get interviewed tomorrow, so at least that stress will be gone. Best of luck.

Monday, December 17 2007 at 03:39 PM

On Penn!

Tuesday, December 18 2007 at 11:44 AM

Just got off the phone with him. Hope you either have already or will hear soon.

No call for me yet
Tuesday, December 18 2007 at 01:56 PM

So I'll keep the anxiety fires high until tomorrow. Your call went well, I hope!

Wednesday, December 19 2007 at 12:15 PM

on the call. Sorry to have gotten you antsy yesterday. Hope it went fantastically.

Thursday, December 20 2007 at 08:52 AM

On all of your acceptances from one Cal Bear to another

Thursday, January 24 2008 at 07:36 AM

On Chicago!

Thursday, January 24 2008 at 04:57 PM

On Columbia!

Youre awesome
Tuesday, February 12 2008 at 08:58 AM

I've read your LSD posts, and Im still pulling for you for Harvard. GOOD LUCK!!!

Tuesday, March 04 2008 at 07:19 PM

Fantastic accomplishments, sincere congrats... now how about withdrawing from Berkeley so the rest of us lesser mortals can have a shot ;) ?

Hey man
Sunday, April 06 2008 at 08:24 PM

Hey I had a few questions about your berkeley undergrad experience. i'm a high school student that might attend Cal.

Wednesday, April 09 2008 at 08:35 PM

Congrats on all of your options! I've lived in both Chicago and Philly, and both are great. Thanks for withdrawing from UMich - maybe I'll get your spot =) Congrats again!

hey, congrats
Thursday, June 26 2008 at 11:35 AM

on Harvard! I guess holding out paid off!

Sunday, July 06 2008 at 01:57 PM

on all your acceptances.. i\'m applying this fall, and I was wondering if you could give me any advice on the application process... Let me know!

Congrats on Harvard!
Sunday, July 06 2008 at 03:45 PM

First off, congratulations! I bet the Toby Stock call in June was at the top of the list of \"best phone calls ever.\" We have similar stats, and I\'m applying for next cycle. I know you are probably being bombarded with people asking how you got into Harvard off the waitlist, etc., but I was wondering if you\'d be able to e-mail me and let me know what you did to express your continued interest in the school and where you chose to go before you knew you were off the waitlist (NYU?). I\'d appreciate it. Thanks so much for your help and time, and congrats again!

Choose Harvard
Monday, July 21 2008 at 03:08 PM that Stanford can take ME off the waitlist...

omg congrats on stanford!
Thursday, July 24 2008 at 07:41 AM

so unbelievable and awesome that you got off the waitlist in july -- you\'re such a wonderful example of why patience is a virtue -- best of luck on the decision making!

Tuesday, July 29 2008 at 10:41 PM

hey congrats on stanford! sorry not to get back to you sooner--i don\\\\\\\'t check this thing too often anymore. for me, choosing stanford over harvard was a no brainer. born and raised in CA with no intentions of ever leaving, so it\\\\\\\'s just the perfect school for me. anyway, it looks like you already decided, so hopefully you feel like you made the right choice. (you did.) i\\\\\\\'ll be seeing you very soon here!

question -- how\'d you get your apps in
Tuesday, August 05 2008 at 01:21 PM

I\'m working on my 08-09 apps now, and I\'m wondering how you got your apps in so quickly (by the end of September) -- did you just go ahead and work off the past year\'s paper apps if they were available and submit everything when this year\'s apps finally went up online? Congratulations and thanks!

Kind of fitting
Tuesday, August 05 2008 at 05:06 PM

After Harvard jerked you around so much, you get to reject them. Congrats on Stanford. I think your choice will be looking very good (and mine very bad) by the time winter rolls around.

Wednesday, August 06 2008 at 11:25 AM

Okay, that sounds like what I\'m doing now -- working through PS statements, the lovely Yale 250, and other essays. Hopefully a little break from the LSAT and refocusing on other parts of my app will help me get over a not so fun wall I\'ve hit with prep. I\'m still so happy for you -- SLS got a balla ;)

Friday, December 02 2011 at 10:46 AM

On Bar!
