Additional info & updates

Late October - In at Duke via email! :)

Early November- HLS Phone call

Late November- In at HLS :)

Early January - Deferred at Northwestern and I'm treating as a waitlist, kinda surprising since I did the interview and it seemed to go really well. I guess this means no Nwestern scholly? :( Thinking about applying to Michigan after being guilted by an email from Zearfoss.

Mid January - Opted against applying to Michigan. Have yet to hear from Chicago and am now firmly entrenched in my belief that I have been somehow blacklisted across the Chicago metro area. Hopefully will hear from Columbia soon...

Late January- Just heard from Chicago, yay :)

Later January- Email from Columbia saying "Congrats again" Assuming that one of my yet to be opened packages that came this past Monday is from CLS :)

Early Feb- Picked up my mail, Butler Fellowship at Columbia

A little later in Feb- Stanford rejection in mailbox, ouch

A bit later in Feb- And so it ends with a whimper, rejected from Yale. H and Columbia were always my top choices the sting is only mild.

Early March- A little money from Duke, but less than Columbia

Late March- Some money from Chicago

Scholarship amounts are over all three years.

Back from ASW, will be most likely committing to Harvard in the coming days.

Update Dec 08- Well I'll be HLS '12 after I send in my official confirmation next month. Looking back, I realize I had a fairly odd cycle and even though i didn't have the best batting percentage, I was accepted to my top two choices and I couldn't have been happier with my choices. Good luck to everyone! :)

Great #s - I'm sure you'll have a fantastic application cycle. Best of luck!

Cheers

No doubt, the split is what's hot - but your numbers are too high to be much of a split. You're less of a splitter, more of a baller...

hardly.

(the title says it all) gl to both of us, yes? yes.

Good luck

congratulations on harvard!

Congratulations on Harvard!! We have similar numbers, and I'm wondering if there's anything extraordinary about your application that should stop giving me hope for my own Harvard aspirations. I don't mean to sound all negative about our numbers - it's just fantastic to see someone in my ballpark accepted there.

thanks!

Congrats on Harvard and good luck on your other apps! The NW deferral was most likely b/c you lacked work experience or they didn't think you'd actually go there (prob the latter). Do you have an early fav?

Chicago
Thursday, January 17 2008 at 06:57 PM

Thanks! I'm sure they'll call you in a day or two. And congratulations on Harvard, number twin!

Congrats!

On Columbia!

Yale
Monday, February 11 2008 at 04:28 AM

Sorry about Stanford, I figured you'd be set for a sweep; that's bogus. Still, good luck with Yale, you deserve it!

Hey
Monday, February 11 2008 at 02:06 PM

I am way proud of you...you've done amazingly well. You deserve all the good things that come your way.

Sorry

That's some terrible timing on my part - but it's hard to feel too bad for you with those big 4 schools (that's a lot of money from CU!). I don't know, for me a lot depends on $$ and on public interest stuff, but we'll see...
