Well I used the presumption that yours were merit-based waivers to land a few waivers of my own :D I go to a top 5 public school, have a lot of leadership experience and am a web programmer (I want to do cyberlaw), so I think I have decent ECs. Good luck too! I think we'll be riding some waitlists.

Do you expect your GPA to be higher after this semester (assuming you're a senior)? I'm hoping to have mine bump up to 3.43...which I hope at least would help cement the grade trend I've had over the second half of my time. I just found out that I went complete at Cornell. I'm kind of disappointed all schools don't tell you when you're complete by email...it makes me nervous. Hopefully we both start getting some decisions soon- good luck!

And congrats on your first acceptance! First of many, I'd bet. Especially with such a strong upward trend and a great LSAT, you really shouldn't sell yourself short. That I could get into a T14 is evidence that even the top schools consider the whole app beyond just numbers.

  • W&M
  • Friday, December 14 2007 at 08:33 AM

Yeah, I did get the graduate fellowship. I was excited about the scholarship when I first saw it. It does sounds worse when you think of it is just waiving the out-of-state fee but it's still a nice chunk of change. I actually don't know too much about W&M. It seems really nice from what I can tell but I feel like all schools are like that before you actually visit. I just put down the yearly total instead of multiplying. Like you said, just a style choice. Congrats on Minnesota by the way. That's awesome. Good luck with the rest of your cycle. I'm so anxious now that admit time is in full swing.

Thanks spaceinvaders. I was completely shocked to see NYU so early. I can't believe it. Congrats on your acceptances thus far and best of luck on the rest. I'm sure you'll have some great news too.

- avs
  • good luck!
  • Saturday, December 15 2007 at 11:30 AM

Thanks, good luck to you too and congrats about W&M. Cornell wants a second LOR from a professor of mine (I have one from a prof and one from an old boss), so I'm waiting to get this semester's grades and figure out who to ask. What section for UMich did you apply to? I applied Summer/Fall

  • w&m
  • Saturday, December 15 2007 at 11:52 AM

I totally agree with you. That is a lot of money. I didn't mean to sound like I was scoffing at it. I think I'm more overwhelmed by the cost of law school even with the scholarship than anything else. But if I do end up going to W&M, it will be nice to have such a nice package.

  • reach schools.
  • Saturday, December 15 2007 at 02:58 PM

I have definitely considered it, I feel like its getting a little late to send them out now, I would have to get another LOR for most of those schools, which takes a few weeks. In retrospect, I wish I would have applied to Vanderbilt very early in the process. Best of luck to you with the reach schools!

Seeing as you've gotten into W&M and Minnesota - I'm sure you'll hear from more. You'll get the notice of how much the scholarship is for in the mail. They're too classy to do it over the phone! I was lucky because I'm a Virginia resident, but our numbers are borderline for a number of the T6-T10 schools, so I'm sure you'll have some good fortune!

yes, it would seem this week is the time. i know my cycle is a little overly zealous, but i chose to do this bc i have two very odd soft factors that may/may not sway an adcomm somewhere. we'll see. but yea realistically, Cornell, Gtown, and Northwestern are my reasonable reaches, and id be overjoyed to get any of them. good luck this week!

hey when you were talking about GMU...you forgot to mention Virginia. So GMU is in fact outranked by 4 schools in the area. Plus all the T-14 grads that come. Just thought I'd let ya know.

  • Cornell = 1st choice?
  • Thursday, January 10 2008 at 11:21 AM

I've seen you say that Cornell is your first choice. After reading how important a BIG city is to you, I was wondering why you were so set on Cornell. Care to share? I'm really into Cornell too, btw. :)

  • Michigan and Vandy
  • Monday, January 14 2008 at 05:18 PM

I think this looks great for you. It's too early for WL at both schools, and neither will straight up reject a 169 per the data without something really pulling it down. I'm still complete at Vandy. Hopefully that changes tomorrow. You should email Vandy and ask for a PDF in an email of the decision.

- JNSL
  • Vandy...
  • Monday, January 14 2008 at 05:41 PM

I think it's too early for a rejection...we're probably in. Let me know if you get that pdf. Good luck.

  • Tuesday, February 05 2008 at 06:42 AM

Hi "spaceinvaders," I'm sorry to see that Columbia rejected your application for admission. I am still waiting to hear back from them. For my benefit and the benefit of others still waiting to hear back, could you please tell us if your Columbia "My Columbia" status checker says a date or just "decision" or what? Thank you in advance for your response, and continued best wishes for you this cycle. Sincerely, aniedrich84

  • Tuesday, February 12 2008 at 12:26 AM

won't be at the weekend, unfortunately. I think you can do no wrong with either, really, though the "highest hours studied per day" stat concerns me a bit, haha. Of the schools accepted, I'm definitely going to Mich regardless of finances. I'm really not expecting anything from HLS and CLS, but I'm really hoping UVA comes through. Then it'll be a fun game. But even if they don't, i'd be pretty damn happy going to Mich by default

Hi spaceinvaders, Yes, I've been very involved with animal rights causes for years. I've been a vegetarian (recently turned vegan) for about 10 years now. If I do go to Michigan, I am almost sure I would join the ALDF. Yes, we should talk about animal rights while we're at the March ASW! I will look forward to talking to you then! -aniedrich84 - aniedrich84

On the veggie/vegan note, I don't understand some people's choices, either. To each their own, I suppose. I will plan on looking for the tall guy at Michigan's ASW. See you then! -aniedrich84

  • Choices
  • Saturday, February 23 2008 at 08:46 AM

I'm 99% sure I'd choose Michigan if I got in, though I think I have a waitlist coming. I started on my LOCI already just in case (such that if it does come, I can get it to them asap). Vanderbilt and Texas are actually both still in it. I'd really rather not leave the south because I don't like the cold (I'm from the north originally), so I'll be looking for excuses not to be up north. Nevertheless, it'll take money from both UT and Vanderbilt to me to go there. I'll be visiting Vandy and UT in a drive with my girlfriend over spring break...and then Cornell for the April preview day (if I haven't heard any good news from Michigan). When are you planning on going to yours? Any closer on your decision between Cornell and Michigan?

  • re: cornell :(
  • Wednesday, April 23 2008 at 10:12 AM

Haha, no I didn't tell Cornell that I "would go there" if accepted, simply that they were my top choice... which they were. At that time, I wasn't as interested in Michigan for whatever reason. But once I got accepted there and heavily researched it, and went to the ASW, I loved the hell out of it. I also never wrote a "why Michigan" essay. But yeah, I'm a little self conscious about it, and feel kinda bad. Its like going out with the perfect girl, and then dumping her after you connect with an even more perfect one :-P. Not exactly cheating, but not exactly graceful either.
