Applicant Information

PoliSci, History

Demographic Information


Extra Curricular Information

work 20 hours a week and intern for 10 hours a week, plus full course load.


Finally got a call from Penn - they'll take me, but only if I defer for a year and enter in 2009. That will not be happening.

Got the call from Chicago today. It was definitely worth the wait!

Just an FYI, Georgetown's acceptance letter doesn't come in a regular envelope. The shape is more like an invitation to a wedding or a graduation announcement.

Accepted to Duke!!!! They actually took 10 days rather than the promised one week, but somehow I think I'll get over it. ;) On a sidenote, for those applying to Washington, I recieved an acceptance email on the 4th, but I recieved the official letter today, and it just came in a regular envelope with one piece of paper inside. Scholarship offers are made by phone.

Applied to Duke using priority track registration. Should have an answer w/in 7 days of my app going complete, but they said that can take two to three weeks.

Wow! William and Mary got back to me insanely fast, especially since they claim to not do rolling admissions. I'm incredibly surprised, but certainly not complaining. :)

10/25/07 (again)
I've decided to keep track of all the fee waivers I've been offered, mostly because I'm amused by the variety and length of the list. I wish schools had done this when I was applying as an undergrad...
Anyway, the "official" list: Columbia, Northwestern, Chicago, Penn, Virginia, Michigan, NYU, Cornell, Georgetown, Washington University, Northeastern, William & Mary, Washington & Lee, Notre Dame, Duke, USC, UCLA, Emory, Southern Methodist, Indiana University, UT Austin, University of Illinois, University of St. Louis, Arizona, Penn State Dickinson, Wake Forest, Pepperdine, George Mason, Vermont, Pittsburgh, Baylor, Temple, Alabama, Santa Clara, Miami, Cincinnati, DePaul, Utah, Chicago Kent, Loyola Marymount, Tulane, Hofstra, Quinnipiac, Brooklyn Law School, Texas Wesleyan, SUNY - Buffalo, Wayne State University, Roger Williams University, University of St. Thomas, Cardozo, University of the Pacific, University of Dayton, Lewis & Clarke. Some of them I'm absolutely ecstatic about (mostly because I was already planning to apply), some of them honestly couldn't pay me enough to go to their school. It sure is nice to feel wanted, though. :)

Okay, I started this list when it had 12 schools and I really was amused by it. Now, I think I'm overwhelmed. I can't even imagine how long the list of someone with a 180 must be... Craziness.

First official application sent. glad to have one completely out of my hands. can't wait to get the rest gone, too.

Anyone else going crazy over their personal statements? I keep trying to work in my honors thesis (it's centered on voter fraud and photo i.d. laws), but I've been unsuccessful thus far. My goal is to have all of my apps done by this weekend, but it's never going to happen if I keep freaking out about my statement.

I'm from Pittsburgh, and if you couldn't tell from my schools list, I can't wait to get back to the east coast. (My username is incredibly sarcastic, btw)

Good luck with your cycle. Tough loss for the Stillers on Sunday night. Where'd you go to high school? I went to Taylor Allderdice (in Squirrel Hill).

You have something against Boston? I would think you would have a very good chance at wearing crimson in the fall if you we so inclined...

  • No Boston Then

I actually live in Chicago right now. Great city but the winters are tough... I did a lot of environmental engineering work, so environmental law would work well with my background but I could probably also do IP and they pay a little better =P

Looks like we were both part of the W&M lighting round. I'm from western PA, too. Good luck with the rest of the cycle.

i am going to be applying in the next cycle. Did those fee waivers just get sent to you? when were they sent? did you have to request them
