12/01/06 Recieved a package from Duke. It had the acceptance letter.
12/11/06 A large envelope came from NYU. Not as bulky as Duke's but it was an acceptance!
Georgetown's online status check went to decision. I should be getting a letter in a week or so.
12/16/06 A SMALL letter from Georgetown. It's about the size of a post card. Seems too small to be good news but it is an acceptance. DC would be a fun place to go.
12/21/06 Letter from Duke offering a 18,000/year scholarship. Sounds pretty good to me!
12/25/06 A regular sized evelope came from Vanderbilt. I was accepted. That's good because my wife's family lives nearby.
12/26/06 A large packet came from Vanderbilt. It had a spiral bound book about the school, places to live, eat, and hang out. Very nice and informative.
1/2/07 Sent an updated transcript to the LSDAS. I'm sure it will take forever to process, but it boosted my GPA by .04. That will help.
1/8/07 LSDAS updated my GPA. Much quiker than I thought.
1/16/07 Large envelope came from Michigan today. I got accepted! I've heard that Michigan is beautiful. By the way the website went to decision wednesday or thursday last week.
1/17/07 Put on hold at Harvard.
1/22/07 Got an email from UVA that my status had changed on friday. I came home and had an acceptance. It was in a normal letter sized envelope. I may go there because of the weather.
1/25/07 Large envelope from Columbia today. It was a nice folder with an acceptance. This is fantastic. My sister lives on the west side so I could visit her often.
2/2/07 I got a message on my phone from the University of Chicago. The gentleman said that he had good news about my application. I am assuming that means I'm in!!!! The University of Chicago is definitly the top of my list so far. Their clerkship placement, scholarly impact, and teacher quality is absolutly top notch. I am so excited about this I'm ready to jump out of my skin.
02/17/07 Stanford rejection came in a small light envelope. I knew it was a rejection just by looking at it. No surprises here though. I never thought I'd get in there. I just applied so that I wouldn't have to think about what would have been had I applied.
03/17/07 Sent out all the withdralw letters so that people who are waiting to hear get a chance.
03/27/07 I got a phone call after school from Yale. They told me I was accepted. I asked if it was a joke. I am numb and I am still planning on calling the school tomorrow to make sure my friends haven't pulled the cruelest practical joke ever. The best part is that I bought non-refundable plane tickets to New York, Boston, and Chicago 2 days ago. Oh well. I'm still going to Yale.
4/30/07 Finally heard from Harvard. Got waitlisted so I withdrew. Yale here I come!
