Wow. In at Harvard and I still haven't gone complete. You've made this nervous lawyer just a little more nervous.

NYU has the Yankees. Harvard has the Red Sox. This should be a pretty easy decision. Any word from Yale?

I got my Harvard phone call email, then the phone call itself two days later, and yet I dont think I will be as lucky as five day turn around. That is awesome! Congrats

Hey there, I too was nominated for a Sharp scholarship and interviewed. I haven't heard anything either. I'm feeling a bit discouraged myself... You still haven't heard anything?
