And so it begins...
-Seems like Mich is taking forever to request my report. It's getting me worried.
-Northwestern alumni interview--went VERY well (according to the both of us, and he said he would
write me a glowing review :-) )
-First complete at UVa!
-Complete at GULC via status checker!
-Apparently, WUSTL and Fordham are notorious for taking really long to request reports. Good to know.
-Email from ND saying that I would be notified in 4 wks if my app was incomplete.
-Complete at Northwestern via status checker.
-Complete at Vandy by email.
-So I check my online bank statement and see that Penn has deposited my check. They haven't emailed me or sent anything telling me that I'm complete, though since they did deposit the check, I would like to assume that I"m complete there. Sigh.
-Complete at Penn via email.
-Waiver from Emory received in the mail. Dunno whether I'm going to apply yet, though I probably will. (LOL yea I applied really fast didn't I?)
-I'm still stuck on this PS for BC. I want to apply...but the idea of writing another essay is killing it for me :-(
-Found out I was complete at GW after I emailed the admissions staff.
-I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
-Fordham's status checker needs to be updated ASAP! It's been a full 2 weeks since the last update and it's killing me.
-Mich, I would REALLY LOVE to get a status check id, pretty please?
-By this time, I should be complete basically everywhere (especially Duke, ND, and Mich) except Emory.
11/27/06 Part 2
-Got my Mich ID for the status check and I'm complete. Let the waiting and neurotic status checking commence!!
-Complete at Duke via email
-Complete at Fordham via status checker
-3 more to go!!
-I'm getting ansy to hear some good news from a school. I'm so anxious and worried I won't get in anywhere!!!!
-I got a letter on Wed from WUSTL saying that they have all the parts of my app--but I have to wait for a complete notice.
-It's been about 4 weeks since I got the received letter from ND, and since they haven't contacted me about missing parts of my app, I'm going to say that I'm complete.
-My Mich status checker changed to decision...I'm so scared!!!
-Complete at Emory via email. Complete at ALL of my schools.
-IN AT MICHIGAN!!!!!
-now that the excitement has worn off *grin*, I'm so happy about my Michigan acceptance. It's a great way to start off the cycle, a t10 at that! Received a welcome letter with a personalized note at the bottom from Dean Zearfoss; access to the admitted students site; a cd-rom; and a cool blue Mich folder. I know for sure now that I'm going to ls next fall!
(btw, for those who may ask, I did write the "Why Michigan" essay)
-I'm happy for all of the new Penn admits...but...I'm a bit jealous. I really hope that I get in, as it is one of my top choices---TOP! I would love to have the choice between Mich and Penn.
-In at Vandy via snail mail! My mom read the letter to me. Came in a thin envelope. Letter dated 12/20/06
-Waiting for [hopefully] good news from PENN, UVa, and NU. For some reason, I feel like Duke and GULC are going to ding me in the near future.
-Still waiting...it's been really quiet. I hope all of the bad news doesn't come at once :-/
-In at ND via email from Heather Moriconi! Said that acceptance package would be in the mail, but that she wanted to give me the news as soon as possible). $$ included in email.
-In at Emory via snail mail!!! Letter dated 1/4/07.
-I'm hoping and praying that I will be accepted to UVa and Penn. It would really bother me if I don't get into both, especially Penn. Sigh. Praying for good news...
-In at WUSTL via email!! Said that official acceptance package will come in about a week or so, and that I should be hearing from their scholarship committee in Feb. Excellent!
-So, so far I'm in at 5 excellent places (and 1 of my top choices to boot). Yet, I have a feeling of dread that my luck will soon run out--especially because I mainly have the t14 left to hear back from. Sigh...I hope my "luck" extends to at least Penn, UVa, and NU. :-(
-First ding from Northwestern via status check. It sucks but I'll get over it.
-Decided to withdraw from Fordham. There's no need to keep it up there (especially since they are taking forever). I wouldn't go to Fordham over any of my other choices.
-Waitlisted @ Penn via email. Kinda down about it and
wish they would have just rejected me outright. Sigh.
-Sent confirmation of me staying on Penn wl.
-My UVa application has gone to decision via UVa status checker. Sigh. I hope it's good news.
-IN AT UVa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm buggin out--this is great news considering the decisions I received last week. This has also made my decision that much harder: Mich versus UVa. But I'm happy to have the choice! Came in beige envelope, postmarked 2/5.
-Will be withdrawing from Emory in the upcoming days. Hopefully the spot will go to someone who really wants in!!
-WUSTL still hasn't sent my acceptance packagenor given me any info from their scholarship committee. I'm going to w/d, but not before I know all of the information.
-Received official acceptancce letter from WUSTL; said that I am being considered for one of their Scholars in Law awards. WUSTL is still in play...
-Mailed in withdrawal for Emory
-In at Fordham via email. I withdrew via email on 1/30 and per the last Fordham status check update, my status read "withdrawn before decision"....so I'm in...for how long, I don't know. I guess I"ll see when Fordham decides to update their status checker again.
-Waiting [im]patiently for GULC, Duke, and GW
-My finaid info is in for Mich,UVa,Vandy,ND,WUSTL--so I'm waiting for responses from them in that regard.
-UM IN AT CLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'M TRIPPIN! In via email--a PDF of my acceptance letter was attached.
-Still in shock over CLS. I never thought I'd get in, thus me not telling anyone. I had actually forgotten about the application! Shocked.
-Will be withdrawing from more schools in the next few days.
(I'm not one to make rash decisions!)
-Received email confirmation from Penn about my spot on the WL. I don't know how long I'll stay on--I'm mainly worried about the possibility that I'd get in, and Penn would have no money left to give me for need based aid. Plus, the CLS admit makes me less upset about the wl lol.
-Withdrew from GW...no need to be potentially accepted just to w/d later. Good luck to those still waiting! Since I withdrew, I'm going to hide this app...I supposed I'll put it back later when all is said and done.
-Ok so I received my official Fordham acceptance (and per the status checker update today, I really am accecpted despite my email w/d). In, with $
-So I decided to check my email just now (9:27pm) and found an email from WUSTL. Scholars in Law Award--$$$
-Awarded a Dean's Scholarship from Vanderbilt!!! Plus, guranteed need based money for all 3 years. $$
-After 4+ months of waiting, I am finally at decision at GULC. Despite the luck I've had with UVa, Mich, and CLS, I have a strong suspicion that my decision is either a WL or Ding. It wouldn't hurt me too much, but I'd rather not get rejected again--it hurts too much.
-I'm at UVa now, so mom told me that i'm on the preferred wl for GULC. Obviously, I'm withdrawing. :-/
-mailing my ND withdrawal tomorrow....great school and the attention they have shown me and other admits has been great!. It's just not the school for me. Good luck to those trying to get in!
-WUSTL sent out a mass email to $$ recipients asking them whether they were going to accept it and if not to let them know. So, I just withdrew in my emailed reply. Great school though. Hopefully someone who is definitely going to WUSTL gets the $$.
-Went to CLS. Visit details in other section.
-Wondering what the hell is up with Duke? I expect a wl or ding at this point...after hearing reviews from others on LSD, I would have loved to get the opportunity to visit the school, but I guess I won't.
-Got my UVa award :-)
-waitlisted at Duke. Not staying on. Cycle is over.
-withdrew from Vandy. It hurts.
-IN @ CHICAGO!!!!!!!!!! (this was my other hidden app, lol). Got call from Ann Perry a little after 5pm. Deferred after the 2/2 admit batch. I wrote the optional essay about parental responsibility for willful property damage committed by their children. I'm buggin out! Now my cycle is REALLY over!!
-Got $ from CLS. Decent amount.
-So I'll be going to Chi's ASW this weekend. It is now a battle to the death between Columbia and University of Chicago. I'm still leaning towards CLS, but this ASW at Chi could change EVERYTHING. We'll see.
-Received Chicago admit package. Excellent materials including binder, course catalog, graduate school info, etc. $ included :-)
-Fordham is out...and then there were 4
-Heading to Chicago tomorrow to visit UofChicago...hope my flight isn't cancelled because of the weather :-/
-Had a wonderful time at UofChi (remarks to the left)
-Will be withdrawing from Mich and UVa in the next couple of days.
-So my gut keeps telling me CLS so that's where I'll be in the fall!
-Paid $500 deposit for CLS online...it's official!
-Withdrew from the Penn waitlist...it's crazy how they were my #1 going in, mainly bc I never thought I'd get better than that, and they waitlisted me while I got into CLS and Chi. Admissions are crazy.
-Withdrew from Chicago--that was a tough one. So only CLS is in play and that's wehre I'll be and I'm very happy about that!! Good luck to those still waiting and to future applicants!
