I haven't heard anything from Yale, but that's because one of my LORs isn't in yet. Hope you hear soon. :)

I had the same experience. To be safe, I called the admissions office for an to make sure I was complete. As for being admitted, I am a SUPER long shot. You, on the other hand, are an excellent candidate. Good luck to you!

smells like yield protection to me. Since with your awesome #s, theres no other reason to defer you. Good luck with the rest of your schools!

about Cornell, you're in at NYU! Just laugh it off...two of my best friendswere outright rejected from UPenn for undergrad, one ended up at Princeton, the other at Harvard. Guess it's not always a logical process...

Congrats on Michigan - that's awesome. So I saw that you got the Darrow invite and 2 1/2 weeks later got the call - was there something you submitted in that time period (essay etc?) or was the "considered" email just saying, "hey we are thinking about giving you this." Sorry so wordy!

  • Re: Age
  • Tuesday, December 25 2007 at 09:18 AM

Thanks for the encouragement! Though I agree with you, I fear the law school gods might not look at my age the same way. I've already been deferred from 3 schools, and I honestly can't think of any other reason for it than my young age. But deferrals are not rejections, so we'll see what happens come March/April. Good luck to you too!

Congrats on getting into UVA as well!! I actually noticed on their website that they had an 18 year old and a 17 year old in recent years, so obviously they don't care too much about age. I'm glad :) Good luck with the rest of your cycle!

I just wanted to say that your entry about Penn today made me laugh. It's nice to see people who have a sense of humor about themselves and this whole process. Darrow+PennRejection can only equal one thing: you must be HYS material. You already have some great options so you really can't go wrong at this point. Nonetheless, good luck with the rest of your cycle!!

  • ^^
  • Monday, January 14 2008 at 07:06 PM

Agreed. Your Penn entry made me laugh. I only hope I can end up in the same position as you - but that will require me to write the Darrow essay first, at least. Best of luck with the rest of your apps, though I'm sure you'll be smooth sailing from here on out!

  • PENN
  • Tuesday, January 15 2008 at 10:49 AM

Yield protect at Penn. Auto-admit numbers + no Why Penn Essay = Yield protect. Don't let it get you down.

  • Penn
  • Wednesday, January 16 2008 at 10:22 AM

I can't believe you got rejected at Penn. Deferred, maybe, but wow, they must be YPing like crazy. Which sucks, because they are one of my top choices. Like the people above me said, don't worry about that rejection, Penn was confident you'd get better offers so you should be too :) And thanks for the post, it was definitely funny.

You are doing amazing! Congrats on NU, it was my dream school until I messed up the lsats. I'm from the area, if you have any questions let me know! =0)

- beanie13
  • Nope
  • Monday, January 21 2008 at 05:42 PM

I didn't apply - most of those schools are me hoping Admissions will make a mistake and put me into the admit can dream!

  • Thanks...
  • Tuesday, January 22 2008 at 05:07 AM

for the congrats, and same to you! Def. don't let P get you've clearly got a whole lot going for you! My W.E. is heavy on the international public-interesty side with a little somethin' else thrown in. If you're interested in more info, email me. Continued success in your cycle, 'cause you sure don't need luck!

  • Congrats!
  • Sunday, January 27 2008 at 11:13 AM

Congrats on all your acceptances! Don't let Penn get you down, they reject everybody who doesn't write a Why Penn essay eventually. I'm really not sure what to make of Cornell, but I'm sure we'll find out together =) Good luck on the 6 you have left. I look forward at seeing you at some ASWs =D

  • Thanks
  • Monday, January 28 2008 at 06:12 PM

for the congrats - same to you! I had to laugh when I read your paragraph about the NU packet...I promise, it's worth the wait! I got mine today, and the smell of the leather portfolio (hope I'm not ruining the surprise!) is amazing. VERY well done, Northwestern!

- rabbit9198
  • Thank you!
  • Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 07:47 PM

The Darrow is certainly a fantastic I definitely want to visit. I don't know which date yet, unfortunately, b/c, like you I'm still waiting on Columbia and Chicago and Staford, and I need to plan my work schedule with as much info as possible. Which one are you going to? Also, I agree that the NU package is fantastic - SO much information! I haven't even tried to digest it.

- rabbit9198

You too! Any ideas yet?

And belated congrats on your Darrow as well! Maybe I'll see you at an ASW? I'm thinking of going to the one in March. It seems like a million schools scheduled theirs for April...

NU's in the absolute best part of Chicago, so there's really no shortage at all of stuff to do... we went to Navy Pier (super touristy) and rode bikes, shopped on the Mile, etc. At the school itself, we scheduled a tour with the admissions department, and they scheduled a pretty full day for us. Anyway, it should be a lot of fun - good luck with everything!

  • I empathize
  • Tuesday, February 05 2008 at 09:39 AM

You are like my emotional-roller-coaster twin. Why are we twins? we both applied to HLS on the same day and have been waiting till this day. My application has also been under review since 10/18. Now according to the lsn boards, many have received deferrals... I didn't get one. too much agony. Are you in this boat too? absolutely nothing from HLS? not even a deferral email?

RSVP'd this morning for March. See you there! P.S. Sorry 'bout Chicago. I find your arguments for not jumping through their hoops pretty compelling!

- mysterymeat
  • Sorry
  • Tuesday, February 05 2008 at 06:54 PM

to hear about Chicago - I can definitely identify with your desire for finality. Best of luck deciding how to deal with the frustration! Looks like you sure will be doing a lot of traveling over the next few months. I'm still struggling with getting all of my taxes/my parents' tax stuff together to fill out all the financial aid stuff. I'm having a hard time deciding if it's worth it to submit FA stuff to ALL of my schools, in hopes that it will give me some bargaining power (if necessary) with my favorites... Yale is definitely a top contender at this point, but not a sure thing. I haven't ever visited their LS, so I want to make sure I'd be comfortable there. I went to UG in a similar-to-New Haven city in terms of the "CRIME!!" warnings everyone gives, and it wasn't bad at all. I just wish it was already August/September and all decided! But then there's the question of whether to ask for a deferral.... :)

  • hang in there
  • Thursday, February 07 2008 at 04:53 AM

I feel your pain.. just got deferred this morning from Hbomb. Congrats on your NU scholarship. When you said you sent in your financial stuff--do you mean you sent in a copy of your real tax report? or just an estimated one? I am still working on my taxes...should that make a difference?

Hey friend, Yeah, D. and I met up with some friends of mine after you left that I met through a mutual source. It was fun. We were both wishing you were there. Please keep me updated on your decision, too! It was awesome hanging out with you. Stay in touch and good luck with your upcoming interview! -aniedrich84
