07-01 - 178 - Missed both questions in a single RC passage
12-17 - Vandy decision mailed.
12-26 - Big package from Vandy - Admitted student info
12-27 - Standard sized letter from Vandy saying I am in.
1-3 - HLS interview email.
1-8 - I emailed UM because I still didn't have a status check number, and they replied to tell me I am complete.
1-10 - Complete at HLS before the TS1. Mine was short, ~5 minutes. I feel like it was fine. I didn't stutter, but I probably didn't sell myself as well as I should have either.
1-14 - TS2, in at Harvard!!!
1-16 - UVA status check change
1-17 - Email from Columbia asking for last semester's grades.
1-18 - UM status check change
1-18 - In at UVA - standard sized white letter. Dean's Scholarship!!!
1-20 - In at Michigan!! I just logged into the admitted students site, but my package isn't here yet. (No "Why Michigan" essay)
1-22 - Finally complete at Penn, HLS and Michigan binders arrived.
1-28 - Tiny letter offering a Dean's scholarship to Michigan.
2-11 - In at Columbia!
2-16 - Columbia binder arrived.
2-23 - I withdrew from Michigan today.
2-28 - $90,000 offer from Vandy!
3-17 - Rejected from Yale and WL at Penn. I expected both. I rushed out my Yale application with a different and admittedly worse personal statement (long story) and I didn't take enough time to answer the activities question. I knew it was a mistake as soon as I submitted it, but I couldn't think about it any longer. I didn't write a "Why Penn". I had an incredible time at the HLS ASW though, so it is not really a concern at this point. The YLS option would have been nice, but I wasn't even sad when I found out. I have a few more visits to make and obviously a few more schools to hear from before I make any final decisions though.
3-26 - $90K offer from UVA makes them a legit contender again.
