Extra Curricular Information

I sleep 8 hours a night and eat Froot Loops (sometimes even for lunch).

12/6 Update: 7 1/2 hours/night; no frootloops lately.

2/20 Update: Back to 8 hours/night; switched to oatmeal.

2/24 Update: Oatmeal makes for a mighty tasty breakfast. Have not tried it for lunch yet.

5/28 Update: Still sticking with oatmeal. And it's still sticking with me :-0

Additional info & updates

I have all of my fingers and toes, but am in the process of losing one of my big toenails. I also want a Chia Pet for Christmas (Mr. T version).

12/26 Update: I did not get a Chia Pet for Christmas (Mr. T or otherwise).

2/3 Update: Currently 5-3-2 with a three-school losing streak and five other very tough ones coming up. I need a coach...I wonder if Dennis Green is available..."THEY ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE!!!"

2/20 Update: Accepted at WUSTL via email yesterday...now 6-3-2. $$ info to follow via snail mail within 2 weeks. Thanks, Dennis. I'm not too keen on St. Louis, but Top 20 is Top 20.

2/24 Update: Am thinking I should've applied at GW and American (Washington School of Law), since I'm having pretty good luck with schools called "Washington". I'm just saying.

2/25 Update: Returned home to find UO acceptance with $7K/yr scholarship offer in the mail. Quack (As a Beaver Believer, I never thought I'd ever say that. Get a law school, OSU). Now 7-3-2...just one more and I'll be bowl eligible. Unfortunately, much like Vandy's situation in the SEC, I have no business winning the last five. Quel bummer.

2/28 Update: Waitlisted at Penn...a better outcome than I deserved. I will jump through all the requisite hoops, though. *crosses fingers*

3/3 Update: Accepted at USC. Now 8-3-2...Bowl bound!!!

3/5 Update: Scholarship offer received by WUSTL...$20K/yr for three years, renewable based on remaining in good standing. Deadline for accepting is very short; in fact, it's prior to the ASD. What kind of sense does that make?

3/12 Update: Rejected by Yale via snail mail letter... geewhatasurprise. At least it wasn't an email (Harvard is so tacky). Now 8-4-2.

3/20 Update: Asked for scholarship increase from Penn State...got bumped up $3K/yr. Probably not enough to sway me, but the Fin Aid Dean was very nice about it... she didn't have to offer me anything.

3/21 Update: Notified by USC that I would be getting exactly $0 in tuition assistance. ZERO. So much for my budding friendship with George Tirebiter. Will also be switching to Magnums. Boooooooo!

4/3 Update: Waitlisted at UVA. Also withdrew from several schools. Ho hum.

4/11 Update: Full tuition scholarship from UW! Very unexpected, and changes my expected decision.

4/19 Update: Rejected by Cornell, and I really don't care. They graciously advised me that, if Cornell is my top choice, I may want to consider a transfer application next year, with acceptance contingent upon "superior academic performance during (my) first yesar at another American Bar Association accredited law school". So I got that goin' for me...which is nice. Oh, by the way...don't hold your breath, Cornell. If my performance is "superior" and I want to "consider a transfer application", it sure the hell won't be to your school. Thankyouverymuchhaveaniceday!

7/11 Update: Done!

Hope you seriously consider going to University of Buffalo Law School. I am a first year student there and all my profs have Ivy League degrees (2 Harvard Law, 1 Cornell Law, and 1 Yale Law--he wrote our Criminal Law text !). Within our class is a Julliard trained violinist, a Stanford trained Naval Officer, a comedian, and a Korean translator who worked for Tony Blair in the UK !!!

Believe it or not, I am. I just received their viewbook and fee waiver. Sounds like you really enjoy it. I'm leaning against applying though, because I'm not a NYS resident and am already in at Penn State (I was impressed w/it). I might reassess at the end of this month after EA/ED decisions have been made.

Hey Congrats on your Penn State acceptance. As a cheerleader for UB, I have to note that it is higher rated that Penn State and even if you are out of state, I think it is still cheaper. But best wishes to you !

Congrats on UW! I'm just wondering if they called you before the letter was sent or not? Thanks! Sara

Congrats

Congrats on the UW scholarship! How were you notified about the scholarship? Was it listed as part of your financial aid package or did you receive a separate letter?
