I'm thinking about applying at Notre Dame, but now that I've gone complete at 3 out of my 4, I'm feeling really lazy. Anyway, I've been lurking over at TLS, and I've read a bunch of your posts. Good luck with your cycle!

Hey kiwislug recognized you from over on TLS. Have you thought about applying to UIUC? I noticed you have a pretty decent amount of schools from the midwest. Just a thought. Let me know if you think I should apply to any other places, I am trying to get 2 more.

I was thinking about applying to Cornell but I ended up not. I am still thinking about it though, same with BU. I guess I am having trouble with the Why Cornell essay, just difficult to come with a real concrete reason why I want to go there in particular besides its prestige. Any thoughts since you already wrote yours?

- billp
  • Friday, November 14 2008 at 09:53 AM

That's a good point, I think I can handle that. I am going to take your advice and go ahead and apply to those two schools as well. Thanks alot for the help, best of luck on your cycle! I noticed that you were looking for a couple other schools to apply too is their any region in particular that you want to practice in?

Recognized you from TLS. Looks like we have similar schools at the top of our lists. Good luck on the cycle.

I did not apply EA to BC, but I think if you get your app in before 11/15 they let you know by 12/15.... Good luck!

  • Monday, December 08 2008 at 07:09 AM

I did write "Why ND," but since you have a higher LSAT, you should be able to get in regardless.

  • Thanks, Kiwi.
  • Monday, December 22 2008 at 01:18 PM

And congrats on WLU today! Apps suck, but I think a few more T20 apps might have good results for you;) btw- leaving this comment seems like the least practical form of communication. Hmmm.

I'm sure you'll be fine with ND. Good luck

...on all the options you have so far. You have been accepted to several places I would love to go. Have fun deciding between all these awesome schools!

On IUB! Hopefully we will hear back on Cornell and Vandy this month.

- true5081
  • Tuesday, January 06 2009 at 09:00 PM

I'm actually pretty torn between all my acceptances. I kind of want to stay in the midwest so Iowa is definitely up there, and BC and Emory are excellent schools as well. If you are still looking into more schools to apply to I think you would be pretty competitive at Emory, Minnesota, UIUC and George Washington. Best of luck with the rest of your cycle!

- jain87
  • Congrats
  • Wednesday, January 21 2009 at 02:25 PM

...on the acceptance so far, guess we're in the waiting game for the rest. Good luck on all the rest, maybe I'll see you next year.

  • Monday, February 02 2009 at 04:43 PM

Thanks and congrats on your acceptances too with more to come number twin. About ND, yea, I didn't do the "Why ND?" essay which I think is likely to be a factor in the Waitlist. It's ok though, I'm not broken up about it.

- mike8153
  • Tuesday, February 10 2009 at 06:09 AM

thanks! I'm sure you will be in soon enough, it looks like you applied only about 4 days after me. Especially if you wrote the Why ND essay, you seem golden.

  • Wednesday, February 25 2009 at 06:01 AM

Not sure what my number 1 is right now... Still waiting to see if any money is coming from WUSTL, otherwise i'm torn between minnesota and bama, even if the entire world tells me it's a no-brainer. what about you?

- bjmichel77
  • Saturday, February 28 2009 at 07:48 PM

BC was my top choice, but i'd rather try to curb my debt as much as possible, so paying full price to go to boston isn't the ideal situation for me. but i'm not making any concrete decisions just yet, so who knows.

i think i need to decide between ND and WUSTL. i was planning on hitting the ASD in St Louis but after getting the ND email, it looks like im heading to south bend before i hit washU. the last time i visited ND, i had no time to bum around.

What great choices you have !! I will be at ND for a visit on Thurs before the admitted students day. Hope the choice between BC and ND is not as difficult as it now seems it might be. Good Luck at ND admitted students day!
