I now carry a secret resentment for U Nebraska Lincoln for being the only place not to grant you the fee waiver you deserve. ;) Best of luck,

Good luck on your cycle! We have nearly the same numbers so hopefully we'll both get in at a bunch of the same schools!

I was going to bank on being the token Nebraskan at my top choices but you've foiled that plan! Haha. Seriously though, best of luck!

Congrats on your first acceptance (of many)! A scholarship, too? I'm so excited for you. This is going to be an excellent cycle for you. Well deserved for such a great lady, too.

  • Thanks!

Thanks to you both! I confess, I feel a bit like Cinderella at the ball :). When I decided to go to law school back at the first of July, my goal was to go to UNL with a scholarship. I'm glad they were my first acceptance.

Congratulating you is already getting to be a habit. :-) I don't even know what to say. That is so fantastic. Congrats!

My family is lobbying hard for U of Nebraska, so that I don't move (and take their grandkids with me :)). My dh is lobbying hard for somewhere warm, like Berkeley. I'm hoping for a miracle and a Yale admit :). However, I'm open and excited about going to any of the schools on my list. Or I wouldn't have bothered applying. Gonna be an interesting 6 months.

Thanks :) Needless to say, everybody back home was pretty excited! I'm watching your posts in the Toby Stock thread closely hoping for you to get that e-mail soon...I'm sure you will it'll happen, and they'd be crazy not to want someone with your story (and #'s to boot!). Plus the more NE'ans the better ;) Congrats on UNL and Berkeley already! I think you too have still got some great ones on the way :)

You "adore seattle" have you been to California? Go Berkley all the way! Killer school.

I've only spent a few days in SF and I had a terrible cold so I'm very much looking forward to Berkeley's ASW to get a chance to experience CA again. A drive down Hwy 1, however, was spectacular. Unbelievable.

When is Berkeley's ASW? I can't wait to hear about that.

Hopefully this email will open the floodgates and bring emails for all of us on LSD in this 173-74/3.8x group.

On Chicago!

- PinkTiki
  • Hey
  • Wednesday, February 06 2008 at 02:34 PM

The Harvard deferral is a triumph, actually, because I never wrote a "Why Harvard?" and I have very cogent reasons, I hope. I'm optimistic. Would you mind reading the essay if I sent it to you through LSD? Oddly enough, it looks like we've had very similar cycles with very different numbers. What are some of your top choices?

I just stopped by your page and noticed that you're having an amazing cycle. Congrats! Where do you think you'll go?

Thanks for withdrawing on UW. I'm sure you would be a great classmate, but a few more W's and maybe I'll get off the "secondary review" process before I get a waitlist.
