On Dook, Columbia, and Northwestern with many more acceptances to come. Any favorite as of now?

Thanks for the UVA congrats! I'm personally jealous of your acceptances to NU, Duke, and Columbia... I'd kill to hear back from them! It looks like we have very similar numbers (and the same UG major), so I'm going to add you to my watch list if that's okay. Good luck! With a 174, the world is your oyster....

Congrats on Columbia! Is that your top choice as of now? Holding out for anyone else?

Hoping to end up at Columbia or NYU. I'm from right outside of NYC so they're the perfect mix of a great education and location. Good luck with the rest of your cycle (I guess it comes down to Harvard at this point!).

I honestly don't know, but I'm guessing the LSAT helped, because the waivers arrived shortly thereafter. I was only going to look at 5-6 schools, but ultimately applied to 16. The sheer savings volume also helped with my decision to throw money at Stanford, though I highly doubt it will pay off! I'm surprised you didn't have more show up with a 174, though.

How the hell didn't I know you had an LSN before now? Lame.

So, are you thinking Columbia at this point? I just got my NYU acceptance, and I think I'll probably end up there! :-) Think we'll survive the snow out east?

  • So you deposited?

Time for the 'A' beside Columbia. Murr.

How did the visit to CLS go? I'm sending my deposit to NYU shortly. The snow will be new for me, since we only see it a few days a year when it's not raining. Of course, I'm willing to deal with adverse weather if I'm in NYC! :-)
