Sent: when i hit "SEND" on the LSAC website
Received: when the school requests my LSDAS report
Complete: when i am notified i am complete
Desicion: when i hear a decision

good luck to everyone this cycle.

11/11: PS DONE! not touching that bitch anymore.
11/12: LOR #1 in!
11/14: LOR #2 in! now i can apply!
12/01: trying to decide whether to apply to yale or not. so busy with school i'm not sure i have time to write the 250. maybe i'll do it over break. also have to write the "why penn" and i'm now considering applying to mich after hearing such great things about it. it might be a nice option to have.
12/06: e-mailed duke asking about the status of my app after the hacker deal, and found out i went complete 11/30... which means i'll hear by tomorrow! suddenly, i am nervous and wishing i had written a "why duke" essay... i think i have some legit reasons.
12/07: i'm going to law school!!! in at duke!!!
6:02 - HARVARD CALL E-MAIL. so excited!
12/09: while procrastinating, i decided to check my georgetown status... i'm at decision since 12/07. wow, this is all happening so fast.
12/11: just got off the phone with toby stock. i think it went pretty well. now i just have to hope i get that second call...
12/12: got my georgetown acceptance in my school mailbox! exciting.
12/13: in at harvard. total shock. didn't even go complete. wow.
12/14: complete at harvard. did i dream yesterday up?
12/18: watched the paper chase and in the middle of 1L. fully immersing myself in harvard material, though trying to keep an open mind... when is that binder coming?
12/19: received a package at my school mailbox from NYU, but i can't pick it up because i'm at home. i'm assuming it's an acceptance... i doubt they would send anything else in large envelopes. i'll have to wait until mid january to confirm, but for now, i'm marking it as an acceptance. i never even went complete! yay!
12/25: decided that i wasn't applying to yale or penn. yale would be a waste of money, and i don't think i'd go to penn over the other schools i've been accepted to, despite the fact that i love philadelphia and penn in general.
1/9: in at uva with a "dean's scholarship." will find out exactly how much in march. exciting!
1/10: columbia requested my fall grades... eesh.
2/4: received a package from columbia dated 2/1. my decision checker is still at "complete."
2/6: in at uchicago via phone call from the dean. she was really really nice. SUPER excited about chicago. they're one of my top choices.
2/14: in at ucla! glad to have an option on the west coast.
4/28: officially going to harvard! hooray!

Good luck with finishing your personal statement, and with all your apps. I'll be pulling for you.

Good luck to you too!
Monday, October 29 2007 at 02:59 PM

I'm sure you'll get in everywhere... I'm def jealous of your numbers!

Hey there stalker buddy
Friday, November 02 2007 at 08:16 AM

Here's to Harvard ;)

Good luck
Monday, November 12 2007 at 03:26 PM

gl w/ the cycle!

Friday, November 16 2007 at 09:37 AM

stalking? I prefer "observing."

Monday, November 19 2007 at 06:17 AM

I don't really understand it, but I'm not too worried (yet) Good luck this cycle!

Wednesday, November 21 2007 at 08:32 AM

Thanks!! Yeah, I'll probably withdraw from at least some of them after break. I might wait on a couple to see about scholarship money though. I'm 99% sure about Harvard, but not 100% certain.

Wednesday, November 21 2007 at 10:14 AM

for the congrats. Once you talk to Toby we need to hit up Cambridge!

Saturday, November 24 2007 at 05:22 PM

Good luck on your cycle!!!

Sunday, November 25 2007 at 06:10 PM

The animals will totally get you in everywhere :) Best of luck!

Monday, November 26 2007 at 07:33 PM

Yeah...I visited there last week, and it's absolutely gorgeous. I'd probably be willing to compromise most of my morals to get in. You should probably be at Yale though, you deserve it!

Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 05:59 PM

In your extracurricular info, where it says "Lots of work experience (some legal), it sounds like your other work experience is under-the-table, illegal stuff. Were you a bookie, perhaps? Some type of low-level mobster?

That'd be cool...
Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 07:11 PM

...I agree with Alex, if you had mob experience, you'd be in everywhere for sure. :P

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 01:09 PM

Getting them in ASAP. I need to try to avoid updating transcripts, as spending all this time on the LSAT/apps has thrown my grads into the tank for this semester =/

Future Careers?
Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 04:23 PM

I used to have this random dream (as a, like, 12 year old girl) that I wanted to marry into the Chinese mafia...I'm a little beyond that now, but being a drug smuggler perhaps? :P Honestly, I feel like the salaries that lawyers pull in is close enough to criminal sometimes...

Not yet!
Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 06:15 PM

Nope, no TS emails yet...I try not to think about it; but I'll let you know if I get one - I think you're right we'll probably be about the same time (hopefully!!).

Thursday, November 29 2007 at 05:48 AM

Look at you! I'm jealous of your LSAT...but we have lots of overlap. Good luck! :-D

Monday, December 03 2007 at 05:58 AM

I'd wish you good luck as well, but unlike me, you don't need luck =]

1st choice
Monday, December 03 2007 at 06:18 AM

I would say UVa right now but it depends on $$$ and how my visits go since the only law school I've seen is UVa's.

Yep :)
Friday, December 07 2007 at 07:15 AM

Told you we had nothing to worry about. Congrats on your first acceptance!

Friday, December 07 2007 at 07:26 AM

On Duke!

Friday, December 07 2007 at 12:15 PM

on Duke! You're going to law school! Your cycle has now officially begun. :-)

You could say that
Friday, December 07 2007 at 07:08 PM

Yeah, I didn't get very much done today. Alas, no Toby Stock email for me. I'm not too worried yet, but if another week passes, I'm gonna get nervous. In any event, NYU is a huge relief. HYS would make things more interesting.

Oh yeah
Friday, December 07 2007 at 07:09 PM

Congrats on your call email! Just pull through.

Bonding with Stock
Friday, December 07 2007 at 07:48 PM

Thanks, and good luck to you, too!

Saturday, December 08 2007 at 04:36 AM

is not gonna know what hit him!

Monday, December 10 2007 at 11:24 AM

thanks for your note- I was a little surprised myself. I knew it wasn't at all a lock, but I'm wondering what is wrong with my application that almost everyone with my numbers got in! I'm rooting for your Harvard acceptance. Keep me posted!

Monday, December 10 2007 at 01:45 PM

That's so funny - I hadn't noticed we got it on the same day, but totally not surprised. I told him to call whenever (which is basically true - my plate is pretty empty/mobile at work this week)...I tried to think of a couple questions to ask, and I made sure to print a copy of my app to have in front of me, in case he asks anything about specific things. Best of luck - I'm sure you'll do great; please keep me updated!

Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 04:58 AM

Yeah, Duke told me I was one of four applicants that their people had accidentally keyed in as regular decision instead of priority track. Hoyle was looking over the applications at the time I called, so I felt a little sheepish.

Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 09:45 AM

I'm sure it went great! I still haven't had mine yet...but hopefully soon? My roommate just had hers, as well, and he called as she was just getting on a bus/listening to the safety talk over the loudspeaker - eek! Other than that, she said it went fine, though. Best of luck waiting for #2!

Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 06:41 PM

On Georgetown!

Thursday, December 13 2007 at 10:41 AM

congrats on Harvard!!!!

Thursday, December 13 2007 at 12:16 PM

Lizzy- Congrats on Harvard!!! I'm so jealous that I haven't heard anything from the TS yet, but I wish you only the best at the big H!

Congrats again
Thursday, December 13 2007 at 12:42 PM

on HLS. Drop the H-bomb with aplomb!

Thursday, December 13 2007 at 05:32 PM

On Harvard!

Saturday, December 15 2007 at 06:58 AM

Congrats on Harvard! Now our community of TLSers agonizing over NYU shrinks...

Saturday, December 15 2007 at 12:20 PM

It takes a lot of the pressure off to have some great acceptances so early, but I'm def looking forward to (and hoping for) that Harvard call too ;)

Sunday, December 16 2007 at 05:37 PM

just adding to the list of congrats on harvard!!

Tuesday, December 18 2007 at 10:52 AM

Congrats to you too. Yale and Stanford are so unpredictable. I decided to waste my application fee on only one of them, and I really liked Stanford when I visited over the summer. I'll definitely be attending the ASW. I hope we get our packets soon. Enjoy the Holidays.

Tuesday, December 18 2007 at 03:19 PM

hello there! wow, congratulations on the acceptances, that's wonderful. we have similar #s, i'm encouraged!

Wednesday, December 19 2007 at 08:16 AM

Congrats. Looks like you've had a great cycle so far.

Wednesday, December 19 2007 at 08:58 AM


Wednesday, December 19 2007 at 12:49 PM

Congrats to you too - are you sure you don't want to go to school in NYC? And why no Yale? Again, thanks for the encouragement. My first cousin got into Harvard already. She went to Harvard UG and her numbers are probably better than mine.

Thursday, December 20 2007 at 02:12 PM

your acceptances are "sick" too...congrats! :)

almost twins!
Thursday, December 20 2007 at 06:25 PM

although you seem to be way ahead in the extracurriculars. congrats on harvard!

Monday, December 24 2007 at 12:51 PM

on NYU! Pittsburgh is boring, lemme know when you're back. :-)

Wednesday, December 26 2007 at 12:11 PM

*puh-leaze* apply to Yale. You're killing me. I really think you have a great chance of getting in. *sigh*

Thursday, December 27 2007 at 03:17 PM

on your great acceptances! did you like One L? im curious, i bought it but havent started reading it yet!

Wednesday, January 09 2008 at 01:05 PM

On Virginia!

Thursday, January 10 2008 at 05:49 PM

Congrats on UVa! I really hope my acceptance is coming soon.

Saturday, January 12 2008 at 05:51 AM

Congrats on the acceptances-your stats are ridiculous. Don't take Turow's Book too seriously-I read it and he seems pretty dramatic...and I believe he went to school in the 70's. Congrats again-Have you made a decision yet?

Thursday, January 17 2008 at 10:18 AM

Is that really you in your avatar on TLS? Post more and bigger pics... drool... Just post the links here.

99secret admirer
Wednesday, January 23 2008 at 10:21 AM

I was looking at your info section and noticed you decided not to apply to Yale because you thought it would be a waste of money. I decided not to apply to Yale either, for the same reason, but now I'm wondering if that's really true. I mean, if we don't have a shot at getting into Yale, who does? So what's your first choice? Is it Harvard?

Monday, January 28 2008 at 02:35 PM

My first choice is either Harvard or Stanford. Congrats on getting into your first choice!

Monday, February 04 2008 at 10:33 AM

congrats on columbia! did you status checker change to decision before you received the package?

Monday, February 04 2008 at 11:40 AM

On Columbia!

Congrats on Columbia!
Tuesday, February 05 2008 at 06:45 AM

Hi "lizzy1280," Congrats on your admission to Columbia! I am still waiting to hear back from them. For my benefit and the benefit of others still waiting to hear back, could you please tell us if your Columbia "My Columbia" status checker says a date or just "decision" or what? Thank you in advance for your response, and continued best wishes for you this cycle. Sincerely, aniedrich84

Wednesday, February 06 2008 at 01:26 PM

On Chicago!

Wednesday, February 06 2008 at 07:27 PM

you heard from chicago today too? Congrats!! Although it is a little weird, knowing that you already have a Harvard offer on the table. Anyway, I'm going to the ASW in March and will try to check out all the public interest stuff on campus. You know when you're going?

Thursday, February 07 2008 at 04:02 AM

on Chicago! Looks like your cycle couldn't be any better.

first choice
Friday, February 08 2008 at 05:49 AM

To be honest, I am not sure yet. I am pretty sure I'll be at one of HYS, but a full scholarship somewhere else could lure me away. I don't have a lot of faith that I'll get into either of YS though, so I try not to think about those two that much.

Thursday, February 14 2008 at 02:52 PM


Monday, February 18 2008 at 10:34 AM

Thanks lizzy. have you decided on where you are going yet?

Tuesday, February 19 2008 at 06:47 PM

on all of your awesome acceptances! You have some tough/fun/stressful decisions ahead of you huh?

Monday, February 25 2008 at 10:16 PM

That your cycle came to such an end. But congrats on all your acceptances!
