Okay, everyone else's paranoia has affected me (even though I don't understand it at all). I'll repost what I had here later. I'm on thin ice as it is.
03-16-08: Received an e-mail from Cornell saying my application is complete.
I've marked the completion date for Fordham as the received date. It is marked complete online, however I do not have the actual date.
03-20-08: I HAVE BEEN PLACED ON RESERVE AT COLUMBIA!!!!!!!! It's not a yes, but it is darn sure not an outright rejection!!
03-26-08: ACCEPTED TO FORDHAM via e-mail!!!!
03-28-08: Accepted to Northeastern via small, but thick envelope!! With a Dean's Scholarship as well, that's incredible!!
03-31-08: Harvard status checker finally changed from "Application Received" to "Application Under Review."
04-01-08: 08:50p.m. received a phone call from a Northeastern 3L. Had a great discussion about the co-op program and the first year.
04-04-08: I guess I'm not getting a scholarship from Fordham. I received a financial aid application in the mail (though I haven't received the official letter of admission yet).
I also got a huge package from Texas Tech in the mail today making my heart skip several beats thinking it was an acceptance. They are now on my "not happy" list.
04-05-08: Received the official acceptance from Fordham in the mail today. Binder to follow.
04-07-08: Called NYU and Cardozo, both applications are still in committee.
04-10-08: Okay, confused. Received an e-mail from Harvard saying my application is complete, ten days after my status changed to "Application under review." I guess I'll change the date. The e-mail said two months for a decision. Yikes.
04-18-08: Waitlisted at NYU in a large yellow envelope through snail mail. However unlikely it was, I'm actually quite bummed I wasn't accepted. (I can't explain my odd reactions to these things.)
04-21-08: Informed NYU that I'll remain on the waitlist and withdrew from Northeastern (ugh, painful).
04-28-08: E-mailed Cardozo regarding the status of my application. Received an e-mail telling me my file is complete and a second e-mail the next day telling me a decision would be rendered "in the coming days."
05-13-08: The inevitable HLS rejection e-mail.
05-27-08: Received a letter from Cornell dated 22 May saying that I've been placed on the reserve list.
05-31-08: Waitlisted at Cardozo via thin, snail mail envelope.
And that's (pretty much) my cycle, ladies and gentlemen.
06-09-08: Rejected off the waitlist of NYU in small, white envelope via snail mail. *sniffles*
06-11-08: Placed in the Second Reserve group at Columbia via snail mail.
