Demographic Information

Extra Curricular Information

The usual. Study abroad, various clubs, volunteer tutoring, worked a lot in random, undistinguished jobs.

The numbers are real. So is Stanford's rejection.

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

Fee waivers: unsolicited from UMich and Penn, successfully solicited from Gtown and UVa, unsuccessfully solicited from NYU, Columbia, Harvard, and Yale.

Optional essays written for Mich and Penn and school-specific LoR forms sent to Stanford.

"Received" date is when the LSDAS report was requested.

Residency in Virginia.

Had the phone interview from Harvard before getting a complete notice, accepted a couple weeks later.

Acceptance notifications: letter in large envelope from Columbia, thin letter from Georgetown, phone call from Harvard, manila envelope from NYU, binder with letter from Michigan, phone call from Penn, thin letter from UVa, phone call from Yale.

All scholarship amounts are per year or for the first year. Merit-based from UVa and Mich, need-based from Yale and NYU (??).

Withdrew from everywhere but Yale then got rejected by Stanford. Guess they didn't get that email. This is me not caring... Stanford who? Go Bulldogs.

  • Saturday, October 21 2006 at 10:47 AM

I just got a fee waiver from NYU in the mail along with a CD about the school. I didn't contact them at all, so I don't know.

  • Saturday, October 21 2006 at 01:32 PM

Hey, thanks for the kind note on my site. As for my aiming high, well, someone has to make up the lowest quartile on those LSAT scores, so I figure it might as well be me. Regarding the fee waivers, if I have 20-plus, and your patently impeccable numbers merit only five or so, then I clearly do not understand the calculus at play here. The only thing I can think of is the geographic slant I alluded to -- what I noticed about my fee waiver institutions is that all save two are east of the Rockies -- but that still doesn't begin to explain why you wouldn't have received more attention. I loved classics. I'm thrilled I had the chance to study it as an undergrad, and that I did so. Classics or French or what have you, though, I'm pleased to see that there are at least some other humanities majors in the woodwork. Best of luck, etc.

  • Curiosity killed your clean sweep...
  • Saturday, October 21 2006 at 07:20 PM

...well, probably not. I took the LSAT in Feb. 2006 and June 2006. Ideally, I'll be getting my applications out and complete sometime in the next few weeks, though there's still a lot to do no matter how I look at it. As for the absence of YS...Well, Stanford is simply too far West for me. Yale, on the other hand, I've been ambivalent about. I may yet apply, but my dislike of New Haven is going to be quite the hurdle for me to overcome.

- GygesRing

  • no harm done
  • Tuesday, October 31 2006 at 07:58 PM

Hey, no offense taken... I'm well aware that if you look at, say, the Yale LSAT/GPA grid, acceptance rates for the absolute highest box on that grid -- i.e., where you are -- are still only around 50%. So if those are the odds for numbers like yours, it's neither rude nor a stretch to point out that it's an uphill road for anyone at certain well-known schools. Hey, maybe we'll both get in everywhere...

"My undergrad doesn't give out A pluses. Or compute class rank. Not complaining, just saying." I'd kick you if you weren't so sweet! Why are you so sweet!? :o And it looks like a sweep to me. Doode, how can you better than 4.0 and 180? Numbers aren't everything, but when they are THAT good, you could say they ARE! WHOAAA. Show us a sweep! :) RAWR!!

For some reason I've always had a thing for UT. Not sure why, but I figured I had nothing to lose. ED isn't binding there, but it would be awesome to get in for me (since it's a real reach). Stop second-guessing yourself lovely girl. You'll do awesome.

  • You're right
  • Friday, November 10 2006 at 02:29 AM

I agree that lawyers do get a lot of unnecessary flack. I lost a little hope last year when an acquaintance with a 4.0 scored a 180 and got accepted to Harvard. He's exactly the kind of guy who shouldn't be a lawyer: in it for the money and unscrupulous to the core. Fortunately, by and large, I've met lawyers and law students who DO care about people. For example, actually performing pro bono work. As frustrating as things/society can be today, it is exciting to know that we can make a difference. You definitely aren't naive for believing that! *wonders where that patchouli scent is coming from*

I have to be honest, I'm not a Sooner born and bred. My boyfriend is the Sooner...I'm a transplant, but I got drawn in by going to the OU-Texas game. Living here I like all the Sooners I know. You seem no different...friendly, genuine...thanks for the note. As for Texas...eh...they were hanging on by a thread (that thread being comprised mainly of Austin and low cost of attending) before the deferral. Now...probably won't wait around for their decision. Good luck with Yale. Everywhere else, avoid tragic luck and you should be fine. :-) BTW, No hidden fee waiver from Columbia? Very puzzling.

  • Monday, December 11 2006 at 01:45 PM

Thanks for the kind remarks. I can't help but dream of a school like Michigan, I hope they accept me. As far as Tulsa goes, I've been here my whole life and I have two kids so moving would be a major challenge. Plus my mother and grandfather both went to TU (but not the law school) so there's a strong family loyalty towards TU. Lots of difficult decisions, I just hope that Michigan accepts me so I have the opportunity to make that decision as that would be the only thing that would motivate me to leave Oklahoma. Yea for OU winning the Big XII!!!

I thought about a few other T14s but I had already given a $75 donation to the UC Regents and I live in Ithaca now and don't think I could handle another 3 years. Too much snow. The only place on your list that would be comparable would be Mich. so think twice a bring two pairs of gloves. Anyways good luck on your last four. Au revoir.

Hey, thanks for the sweet note. You, and others, totally called it earlier in the cycle; I am clearly the one person in all this who has the least realistic view of my candidacy and chances for admission. As it is, I've honestly been pleasantly surprised -- emphasis on pleasant, to be sure, but even more so on surprised -- at all my successes to date. Of course, you're not doing that bad, either. Sorry about the Boise State game...

  • Wednesday, January 10 2007 at 07:57 AM

but if you actually did, i'm guessing you'd still get stanford, plus full rides at a few places. truth be told, there's not much bad to say about NHSoL. i would have loved to go there but didn't make the cut, so meh. the worst thing about it is the fact that it's in new haven. also, some pompous annoying people supposedly go there, but hey that's law school. oh and if you hate philosophy then it might be the wrong place for you. but aside from that, not much bad to say about it. i'm sure you'll have fun there. :)

If you were anyone other than a UO fan, I would appeal to the Broncos' sense of drama, daring, and even romance (the star running back proposed to his girlfriend, the head cheerleader, following the game: how much more quintessentially college football can you get?). In your case, however, I'm sure you, and the rest of the state, hate their (ample, daring, non-BCS-conference) guts. If it makes you feel better, they still have yet to win a road game against a Pac-10 team...

- gkentch
  • Thanks!
  • Thursday, January 11 2007 at 06:58 PM

Thanks! I'm still in a little bit of shock. And I agree about Yale. I'll be that kid during the welcome speech wondering why they let me study with the published poets and Rhodes scholars. And good luck, I'm sure you have more acceptances in your future (and great ones under your belt already!)

  • Tuesday, January 16 2007 at 12:18 PM

Man, I actually have really no idea where I want to go. Boalt would probably be my first choice, but its the one school my girlfriend actively doesnt want me to go to (her family is all in the Midwest, and weve been in Oregon for several years now, and wants to be closer this time round). Michigan is in the right place, and its obviously a great school, but its the one school that doesnt grab me one way or the other not bad, just nothing special. In terms of location, Id probably most want to be at Cornell, which leaves Penn as the neutral Ivy League school just sort of left over. Guess we should all have such problems. So, no, no idea at all what my first choice is. (It might be Harvard, though Im certainly not going to hold my breath for that one.) Im going to go visit several of them in April, and see what I think firsthand. Of course, as one commenter on my site said, i thought that i would find out where i wanted to attend just by visiting but i don't know how much that has helped so far. it seems that every school tells you that they are different and the students there are kind to one another. That said, I guess Im still hoping for a bolt of revelatory epiphany on one campus or another later this spring. Oh, and if someone gave me, say, $60,000 to go to their school, that wouldnt hurt, either. :-)

Well, thanks for the Yale reality check. If I had to guess, I would posit that my reaction to such a phone call would be similar -- "really?!" seems like about what I would muster. If nothing else, to actually say "I feel a decorous frisson of pleasure at this surprising news" would clearly take both balls and presence, in a combination that I suspect I do not have. Congratulations, of course. That's fantastic. You're the first person I "know," or have any even attenuated connection to, to get into Yale, so well done. As for Chicago on my end, you could make the case that that's the most impressive acceptance to date, inasmuch as I'd already withdrawn from there at the time they took me... Thanks, though.

Its odd, I could have never envisioned picking between Duke and Michigan, but here I am looking at those two as my two favorites. I'm going to Ann Arbor this weekend. I'll probably need at least a little bit of money from them to really consider choosing them over Duke. I will *probably* stay on the UVA waitlist and hope regardless. Congrats on choosing Yale. Mailing that deposit MUST feel good.

  • Duke v Mich...
  • Tuesday, March 27 2007 at 07:22 AM

I was thinking along those lines until I went to the Duke ASW, and it was fantastic. Now, I keep going back and forth. And they have put so much into recruitment. I didn't get to a Michigan ASW, but I will try my best to give them a fair shot this weekend when I visit. I don't think I'd need a matching offer or anything just a little something that would cut into the Duke money. Then there's the great location of GULC in my favorite city in the country...so confused.

  • UVA scholarship
  • Tuesday, March 27 2007 at 10:09 AM

From what I understand, UVA has not sent out very many of their scholarship awards yet. So don't lose hope! Have you tried talking to the aid office about your preferences? I mean, if you really want UVA$$$ over Yale$, it can't hurt to tell them this. I look at your profile and wonder if those other schools looked at you as a lost cause who would wind up at Yale/Harvard no matter what. Of course, turning down Yale, I imagine :-), is very difficult. PS When were you in DC? I did two years of Undergrad there, and just adore the city...maybe if GULC came up with some money... Aaaahhh!!! Now I'm considering Georgetown again...thanks a lot :-p

Congratulations again on an awesome cycle! I'm glad you got some grants to attend Yale--it may not be much, but it's something! I think you'll love it in New Haven-- are you still not planning on attending the ASW?

  • several questions
  • Saturday, June 16 2007 at 05:22 PM

1. Did going to OU adversely affect anyone's opinion of your GPA? I also went to OU and have several friends who were hurt in med school applications (despite having 4.0's) because of our undergrad program. 2. I'm sure you've explained it to people before, but what's the formula for succeeding on the LSAT? I've avoided taking it so far out of fear. 3. Do you know what happened at Stanford? Did they give you any reason for the rejection? Thank you for your answers, and, as everyone has already mentioned, you are just amazing. I wish you the best of luck and I am positive you will succeed. Boomer Sooner.

  • LSAT?
  • Thursday, July 26 2007 at 08:49 PM

Hey there! I'm from Oklahoma myself, (OSU actually, don't hold it against me!) and I'm taking my LSAT this September. Any advice on LSAT prep? The options are few and far between 'round these parts.
