07/01/09: For various reasons, I changed my mind. HLS was nice enough to allow me back. I'm now ready for my Elle Woods experience :)
05/01/09: Thanks for the five month wait just to be put on the pointless waitlist, Stanford. Ridiculous.
04/05/09: I loved Michigan, but am officially committed to attending NYU.
03/30/09: Today was truly one of the best days of my life. Probably going to NYU. Good thing I look fantastic in purple!
03/25/09: Dean's Scholarship at UVA offering full tuition!!!
03/18/09: Dean's Scholarship at UCLA in the amount of roughly full tuition. HOLLER!
02/28/09: In at USC. I thought they'd forgotten about me!
02/24/09: Offered $20K per year at Georgetown. At least there's some good news this week!
*Later on today, I also found out I'm a finalist for the AnBryce at NYU. This all definitely soothes my wounded heart!!
02/23/09: On reserve at Columbia. *sigh* This was my favorite school pre-cycle too. C'est la vie. I can't be too bitter because I have some great options ahead of me, but this one actually stings a bit.
02/22/09: Let the withdrawing begin! I missed the deadline to submit an essay for Penn's Wilson scholarship, so that was sadly among the first group.
02/21/09: Officially dinged at Yale. It was really expected and I'm not surprised in the least. However, I knew I'd regret not applying after the cycle so my peace of mind was worth the $87!
02/06/09: It was a good ride until Chicago came along and fucked it all up. Officially in the "hold" category and trying to decide if I'm going to do the supplemental essay.
02/03/09: Got a KB2 yesterday. So thankful and so blessed.
01/30/09: Aww, my one year anniversary of creating an LSN account. Incidentally, also around the 1 year anniversary of when I stopped having a life.
01/23/09: In at Penn. Also got the email about my Cornell acceptance. Best week ever, indeed!
01/22/09: FULL DARROW!!!!!!! Best week ever?
01/20/09: It seems as though TS isn't without a sense of irony, given my last comment re: Obama. Had my TS1 today and felt like a major league dolt. Lasted for roughly 6-7 minutes. I feel more anxious than ever now.
01/16/09: I had my own Obama moment today when I got a TS1 email!!!
01/09/09: New year; more acceptances. Call this morning from UVA's Dean of Admissions, then an email from Northwestern this afternoon.
12/29/08: Another late Christmas present. Came back from vacation to find a big purple envelope from NYU. This cycle is a dream, for realsies.
12/26/08: Merry belated Christmas to me. In at Duke via email. And here I thought Dean Hoye was using my application as lining for his bird cage!
12/11/08: MICHIGAN!!! Via noseyness and the status checker :)
**Got the blue folder in the mail a couple of days later. Nice touch. And the flash drive video made me fall a little bit in lust with the campus.
12/4/08: In the words of Ice Cube, it was a good day!
[around 11:15am] Call from Dean Tom at Berkeley! I actually started crying on the phone and said "I'm normally not this crazy. Please don't take back my admission." He laughed. We're besties already.
[around 5:30pm] Call from Dean Schwartz at UCLA. UC system, you're adorable! Did you plan this special day just for me?
11/20/08: Dear, sweet baby Jesus. Chancellor's Scholarship at UT. Full tuition. I'm still in shock.
11/12/08: The hits just keep on comin'! In at Georgetown. Very nice handwritten note at the bottom of the letter from Dean Cornblatt about my PS and DS and about their programs that intersect with my areas of interest in the law.
11/11/08: FIRST ACCEPTANCE!!! Very nice phone call from Monica Ingram, Dean of Admissions and FInancial Aid. I, of course, sounded like a blubbering fool, stammering nothing more than "OMG Thank you!!!" Hopefully she read my PS and DS and knows I'm much more articulate normally. Insert obligatory "I'm going to law school!" comment here :)
11/7/08: Dear Last Recommender, I know I didn't give you nearly enough lead time on the letter of rec I asked you for back about 5-6 months ago. I hope you will forgive me for only giving you a time frame to write a one page letter just more than half the time it takes for a human baby in gestation. My bad.
10/24/08: Just got my October 2008 scores back. Nearly hyperventilated and then broke down in tears. Crazy much? SO HAPPY!!! Maybe I actually have a legitimate chance at some of my schools now.
8/27/08: As happy as I am with my LSAT score, I'm retaking. I know it sounds stupid, but I think I can do better and getting a couple more points will make a difference (IMO) in admission and/or scholarship money. Also retaking my LSAT class to make sure I'm studying, staying on track, and relearning concepts I might not be too strong on. I'm annoying myself by being such a hyperparanoid douche. Killself?
8/1/08: LSAC has finally received all my transcripts and has them processed. No surprises there. Now it's just making sure I...politely encourage professors to finish LORs and submit them in a timely fashion.
7/3/08: Holy shit! I took the LSAT while battling a stomach flu, so all things considered, I basically kicked ass. Now this is all kinda real!
