mid-late August: finally rejected from Harvard. So happy at Columbia!
Visiting the old alma mater yesterday I ran into an old friend who said, "Congratulations on Columbia. I didn't realize you were, you know, smart like that."
WHO is reading my profile? I am not that interesting!
Attending CLS and feeling amazing!
On the WL at HLS (booooo). I paid for a decision, darn it, and want that rejection letter to put in my decision folder. Yes, I have a decision folder and it is gloriously pink.
Visited all of the above schools save UMN. Liked CLS, Penn, and UVA the best.
Holy crap, got into Columbia! Received a large envelope with an Admitted Students Handbook and another large light green envelope that contained the acceptance letter, and some other info. From complete to decision in 4 days!
Received the large binder from Wash U.
called Columbia to make sure my Dean's Certification got there okay and found out I'm complete. Huzzah!
Deferred/held at Harvard via email.
Received the promised package from Penn. It has a DVD about the city, a book on1L life, info about restaurants, laundromats, bars, etc. in the city and near campus, stuff about joint degrees, financial aid, etc.
Got the envelope from Gtown today-dated 1/22. As everyone else has mentioned, the letter included a handwritten note from Andy Cornblatt. Awesome. Also received letter from Wash U saying that the scholarship committee is considering me for a Scholars of Law scholarship.
Accepted to the University of Virginia via a deceptively small envelope.
Applied to Columbia...discovered a hidden fee waiver when I submitted the application. Wahoo!
Received acceptance packet from Michigan. Included a DVD about the campus and faculty and letter from Dean Zearfoss with a personal note at the bottom.
Michigan status checker changed to decision.
Received email from Assistant Dean Mary Ann Clifford at WUSTL a few minutes ago. Says I'll be receiving the package within a week with scholarship information to follow in February.
Got the email from Michigan that many people are calling a deferral. I don't see it that way, though, since it's really just an application update.
Accepted to Penn via phone call from the Director of Financial Aid! Tony said that the letter would arrive within a few days and the big package with housing, financial aid, Philly info, etc. would arrive in 2-3 weeks.
Received package from Duke. The letter included specific references to my personal statement. Neat. (edit: scholarship information came separately, approximately one month after the decision.)
