ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

12/6 - Was trying to do something clever, and had to rebuild my cycle. Whee!

12/19 - I got Darrowed, son. Michigan-style. Amount's based on other Darrow recipients' LSNs. It's like a big game of scholarship telephone.

12/19 - I also got Wigmored, Northwestern-style. As a friend put it, this is the best worst-case scenario ever.

1/18 - Got into Virginia with a Dean's Scholarship, which is apparently at least half tuition and fees.

1/24 - In at Columbia. A word of advice to the school: don't cover up the school name with a barcode, because the only thing differentiating Columbia from the Crunk Juice School of Law at first blush is being able to see the name. And the nice green envelope. That was silky.

1/28 - In at UChicago! Only two more to go...

2/5 - Deferred, I guess, at Harvard. Eh.

4/25 - Waitlisted at Yale and Harvard. Woo!

  • Complete at Duke?

Congratulations on your Duke acceptance! Could you please let me know when you went complete there? We have the same exact numbers, and I still have yet to hear anything, but I thought it was just because I wasn't priority track. Thanks and good luck with the rest of your applications!

We have similar numbers and are both URMs. I don't apply this cycle, so I will be monitoring your profile closely to sort of guide me! Best of luck to you!

I wasn't ED at Michigan, just RD. I haven't withdrawn anywhere yet, because I'm still looking at financial aid as a huge factor in terms of where I go.

On all your acceptances. Qn. What do you think was special about your applications that you were not only accepted, but also awarded some scholarships. My GPA is close to yours, but I have not yet taken my LSAT. Will apply for 2009. Any advice..very much welcomed!

What's your first choice? Because you're getting into Harvard. Also, I cannot wait for your yummy and inevitable withdrawls.

- prettypithy

  • Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 02:55 AM

Right now, Michigan's still my first choice - the Darrow's hard to turn down.

  • question
  • Thursday, May 08 2008 at 10:57 AM

I was wondering, could you please give me details on your GPA. How did Harvard accept you with a 3.29. I understand why they took you as far as LSAT, but I am stunned by your GPA. How on earth did that happen? Also, could you tell me did you do any other activities after school? Full time job or what? Basically, what did you have that balanced out your GPA? Please be honest because I am in the exact same boat as you and will be applying next year. Do you have many alumni relations like family?

- CuriousDUDE
  • Congrats!
  • Thursday, May 08 2008 at 12:11 PM

On Harvard!
