10/29 - IN AT GEORGETOWN! Feels sooooo good getting that first acceptance. The feeling of knowing you are an acceptable applicant and that no matter what happens, you'll have the option of attending a school as amazing as Georgetown is a huge relief.
10/31 - TS1 invite! Best.Week.Ever
11/11 - TS1 at 1:40 PM. Lasted about 6.5 minutes. Sudden onset stuttering/repetition of what I wanted to say/choking on my words. I don't think it went that poorly, but definitely not one of my finer phone conversations! lol
11/24 - In at Michigan! Handwritten note from Dean Z. I know it is done for everyone, but it's still a nice touch. I'm so excited!
11/25 - In at Harvard! TS2 at 12:16. Wow.
11/27 - Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
12/10 - Semester over. Darrow invite from Michigan. Fantastic day!
12/22 - In at NYU! Feels good since they rejected me for undergrad.
12/23 - In at Chicago via phone call this morning
1/6 - Woke up at 11:30, and receive a full Darrow invite at 11:35. Unbelievable. I'm absolutely shocked right now. Full tuition plus 7500 stipend.
1/9 - In at UVA! Recieved a "please call us" email early this morning, and was given the good news when I called. Very friendly call.
1/24 - Columbia acceptances mailed 1/22, but nothing at my house about an hour away (despite some having made it to California already). Is my mail just slow, did they mail out another wave on the 23rd, or could this be my first rejection? My index should make me a very competitive candidate. Color me nervous.
2/2 - SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS, BABY! I LOVE IT!
2/12 - I still have no idea what I'm going to choose between HLS and Michigan with the Darrow. Just last week I was certain I would be at HLS, but UMich is gaining ground in my mind this week.
2/13 - $48,000 scholarship offer from Chicago via snail mail. Sweet.
2/19 - Rejected @ Berkeley via status checker. For some reason, it doesn't hurt all that much... :)
2/23 - WL (Reserve) at CLS. The whole concept of a WL is ridiculous. "Yeah, we'll consider you at the end of May." Really? Except for the fact that deposits are usually due May 1st, I appreciate it. Will be withdrawing later this evening.
2/23 - Did some withdrawing today (as you can see from my profile). Hopefully I opened up a spot for some of you guys still waiting to get in!
2/25 - No word yet from either YLS or SLS is very interesting. It's nice to still be alive, especially at YLS since it is far and away my top choice.
You hear that Yale? I want to be your bff!
4/16 - I've decided. HLS class of 2012! Turning down the Darrow was the toughest decision I've ever had to make. Michigan is an absolutely fantastic school and I would have been very happy there. I just wasn't ready to sell my HLS dream. It has been the dream for as long as I wanted to go to law school.
4/21 - I know I haven't been very good at responding to comments, but within the next week or two I plan to do a thorough update and answer some FAQs I've received.
