ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

"Received" date is the date law schools requested reports. Scholarships are totaled over three years and include both merit and need-based grants. As far as I can tell, only Cardozo and Fordham are completely merit-based. I included the standard 3rd year public interest funding for Harvard.

11-25-07: Unsolicited viewbooks make good wrapping paper.

11-30-07: All of my LORs are in - yippee! Also, I'm supposed to hear from Duke by Thursday ...

12-3-07: In at Fordham! (Notified by email; letter went to permanent address about ten days later.) Yay!
-1-11-08: Called to ask if I was still in the running for merit scholarships. Dean Cunningham spoke to scholarship committee and reported that I would be offered 25K/year! Letter came a couple weeks after that.

12-5-07: In at Duke! (Notified by email; big envelope followed about a week later.)

12-8-07: In at NYU! I'm thrilled! (Folder in the mail - big, thin white envelope with purple folder inside.)

12-10-07: I had my Northwestern interview today, and I think it went well.

1-9-08: Call from Cardozo with full ride plus 10K/year stipend - Wowee!
- Letter received 1-11-08 in space age metallic envelope. The Paulsen scholarship provides full tuition and stipend for the first year. It is fully renewable for the second and third years provided that I am in the top 40% of my class.

1-24-08: The green envelope from Columbia was waiting for me when I got home today! Several other Columbia goodies have followed including a NY guidebook.

1-25-08: Northwestern acceptance by email/.pdf file on status checker page! Leather portfolio with Northwestern literature arrived via FedEx on 2/5.
- 2/7: Financial aid award received via email: $30,000/yr regardless of GPA

2-8-08: Deferred at Michigan by email. ("We've reviewed your app and have not made a decision." - I'm calling that a deferral.) Sent an additional LOR through LSAC (2/8) and a LOCI by email (2/10).
- 2-29-08: Waitlisted by email. I am not staying on the waitlist.

3-12-08: Waitlisted at Penn by email. Replied that I wouldn't be staying on. For practical purposes, my cycle is probably over.

3-14-08: Financial aid letter from Duke came in the mail.

3-14-08: E-mail from TS at Harvard
- 3-18-08: TS1 - I was quite nervous and (delightfully?) awkward. Anxiously awaiting more news.
- 3-24-08: TS-2!!!

4-12-08: Scholarship offer from Columbia via mail: $40,000 (offered to match Harvard's public interest 3rd year free deal)

4-15-08: Scholarship offer from NYU via email: $10,000 first two years plus $5,000 or $10,000 the third year. (Third year funding amount depends on whether I work in the public or private sector.) Withdrawing from NYU, Columbia, and Northwestern today. All are awesome, but I think HLS is awesomer. I might hold off sending my deposit in for a few days as Stanford continues to take its sweet time rejecting me.

4-16-08: Withdrew from Stanford via email. I'll be enrolling in HLS!

4-18-08: Rejection letter from Stanford came a couple of days after my withdrawal.

Wow, we really are close in numbers. I see you've applied to Stanford, why not Berkeley?

Thanks. Congrats on NYU! I'm trying to be realistic about my expectations so I'm not going to hold my breath on Columbia, NYU, Penn, and Berkeley.

How come you didn't apply to Cornell? I guess now that you're in it at NYU it doesn't matter but it could've been a good safety option for NY placement.

- TheEvilEmpire
  • good luck, duck.

Very heavily towards Mich. It will take a very good CCN offer to even put them on the table.

- neverborn
  • yes
  • Monday, December 24 2007 at 10:51 PM

85% towards Michigan. If UMichigan was in Chicago or NYC, I'd have signed already.

  • Cardozo
  • Thursday, January 10 2008 at 09:47 AM

Thanks, you too! According to the school's web site, the stipend is renewable. I know it all rounds to about $148.500, but I thought $150,000 looked cool :) I might go to the ASW (when is it?) but I doubt I'll end up at Cardozo.

- netwebber
  • Thank you
  • Saturday, January 12 2008 at 11:28 AM

The name lingers from an inside joke from 7th grade =) Congrats on all of your excellent choices as well. Any school standing out as the one yet?

- sduck30
  • congrats yourself!
  • Monday, January 14 2008 at 08:30 AM

i'm definitely going to an ASW/D... haven't decided which one. wish they'd post that admitted students website already! which one will you attend?

- moosedrop
  • Congratulations
  • Tuesday, January 15 2008 at 06:05 AM

...to you too! I'll email you with a bit more about my softs, but don't get too excited. (I'm not Bill Gates, nor have I cured cancer or anything so impressive.) Wishing you continued success with your apps!
