4/28: But wait...there's more! Stanford waitlist today. I will re-withdraw.
4/26: I'm going to Yale! Sent in my deposit and withdrawals on Thursday. My cycle has been everything I could have hoped for, and I feel incredibly privileged to have this opportunity. I'm so excited for fall!
4/23: Withdrew from Stanford in advance of an official decision. (Unofficially, it doesn't look like they were going to take me.)
4/21: Hello, LSN! It's been ages. How are you? That's good. In the past couple of weeks, I've visited both Harvard and Yale for their respective ASDs. Both were pretty awesome, and I should have a decision within the week. When I decide, you'll be the first to know...after the admissions officers and, like, my mom.
2/18: Some days I kind of feel like admissions committees are reading these boards. Some days I REALLY feel like admissions committees are reading these boards. For all interested: I have my current leanings, but I'm definitely still undecided.
2/17: And two days after the deferral email, in at Yale! Ahhhhhh sweet mystery of life at last I've found thee...
And the tough choices get even tougher.
2/15: Got a too-positive-to-be-a-deferral deferral email from Yale. Feeling pretty happy about it and hoping that it doesn't mean I'm almost certainly waitlisted.
2/11: Came home to a thin envelope from Yale...college. Breath was quickly regained.
2/6: Withdrew from Chicago (pre-decision). Makes me a little sad, but I think it's the right thing to do.
1/24: In at Columbia with a Hamilton! Wow.
12/22: Got the HLS binder in the mail, a parody of the 'thick envelope.' The short personalized note from TS made me smile.
12/20: Yale, you complete me...at least today you did.
12/18: Finally got the actual letter from NYU. It's printed on beautiful paper.
12/13: In at Harvard! Rock.
12/11: Breathless phone call with TS; hope it went well enough....
12/07: Email from Dean Stock, woot woot.
12/07: I've heard non-vicious rumors from reputable sources that I am in at one school...when I hear official word, perhaps I'll update with the story.
UPDATE: The story. Apparently I'm not alone in hearing from NYU via my alum Dad, so I guess I'll go put this up as a decision. (Yep, I'm still not complete, but I'm admitted.) Very exciting!
11/27: I'm all in. Let the good times roll.
11/13: I applied to law school! Still working on one app.
