Mainly because they gave me a fee waiver and Houston is a big legal market. I'm not overly big on the TX schools, mostly preferring to keep to the North. Vandy, UCLA, and Houston sort of are "oddballs" in that respect. I also had a couple others (Lewis & Clark, Utah) but I've withdrawn from those. Just personal area preference. Congrats on your acceptances though, you're doing far better than I am.

  • We're like the same person

Similar numbers, and I suspect that we may attend the same school. Any idea where you'll end up (as we have some over-lap there too)?

Yeah, I'm feeling the same way (minus, uh, Cal ^^). And yeah ... I guess I left some accidentally horrendous anti-UCLA drivel in my app. Finally, I'm about as paranoid as people tracing me on LSN/other message boards. Pretty much everything on my LSN is at least slightly a lie. :D

Hi, I was waitlisted at UCLA and it is my first choice school. Would you mind emailing me your name so I can call the admissions office and possibly get off the waitlist? Thanks! -Megan [email protected]

Yeah, it took me a while to make a decision (live abroad, couldn't visit, had never been to NYC), but now I'm also getting really excited about the move, etc.
