4/23/11 -- Withdrew from Stanford.
4/22/11 -- Received waitlist letter from Stanford.
4/20/11 -- "Decision Letter Sent" at Stanford. I don't care enough to call to find out if it's a waitlist or rejection. I'll update when I find out. I never sent a LOCI.
4/14/11-- Reserve at Columbia. Didn't send a LOCI and couldn't care less. Withdrew immediately.
4/13/11-- Just sent in my Harvard deposit! Class of 2014!
4/8/11-- Rejected at Yale. Not surprised and quite happy. HLS has always been my first choice, and now there's no "what if?" situation.
4/6/11-- Withdrew from NYU today. Unless I get into Stanford or Yale, I will definitely be attending Harvard this fall.
3/8/11-- Went to the Harvard ASW last weekend. . . I was generally pleasantly surprised. I also withdrew from Chicago and Penn today (didn't yet receive a merit aid offer from Penn, but even a full ride wouldn't sway me).
2/24/11-- Withdrew my Duke application, before filling out the scholarship forms. Don't know if I would have gotten money or not.
2/18/11-- Just got email from Chicago awarding me a $5,000/year merit scholarship for three years. Shocked to get any money, but not enough to sway me from Harvard.
2/15/11-- Second under review update at Duke... later in the day, got the acceptance email.
2/2/11-- Held at Columbia. Whatever. Harvard > Columbia anyways.
1/27/11-- Applied to Yale! Don't really want to go, most likely a huge waste of time, but I just want to know....
1/21/11-- Definitely applying to Yale, though it's a HUGE longshot. Hoping what they say about not really having rolling admissions is true. . . .
1/14/11-- In at Penn. Missed the call and called back just as an Assistant Dean was leaving a message. He said they had just made my decision.
1/10/11-- In at Chicago. Missed the call from Ann Perry saying she had an "update" on my application and that I'd get an email about it by the end of the day. She also said I could call with any questions. I decided not to call, but know I'm in. UPDATE: Got the email confirming admission at around 7pm.
1/7/11-- Third update to my UR date at Chicago.
1/5/10-- Got my second Under Committee Review update at Penn. First one was 12/22/10.
12/23/10-- Received email confirmation of my withdrawal from Georgetown. Hopefully this helps someone out there on LSN! I'm going to stay in everywhere else for now, just in case. Also--- just got the package from Harvard. It contains a booklet, some paperwork, bumper stickers, and even has a handwritten note on the letter.
12/22/10-- Finally under committee review at Penn. Also just noticed that my Chicago status checker updated to UR 12/20 from UR 12/1. Withdrew from Georgetown.
12/20/10-- JR2!!!!!!! IN AT HARVARD!!!! I was on the West Coast when I heard from Josh Rubenstein... a nice 6:30am wake-up call.
12/16/10-- Now the really intense waiting begins...
12/15/10-- JR1. Went well, I think. Harvard is my first choice school, so I'm hoping for the best.
12/13/10-- JR1 EMAIL!!!! I am in shock and am so excited.
12/11/10-- Received my Georgetown acceptance letter, dated 12/6/10. Nice note from the dean. . . not generic, as other people have complained.
12/9/10-- People are starting to receive the NYU admission letters! Everyone so far is in, so this MUST be good news! I'm going home at lunch to grab my mail and just make sure. . . . annnddd it's official! IN AT NYU. Purple envelope postmarked 12/8/10, and it is signed in purple ink!
12/8/10-- Still waiting on that NYU letter. . . was able to get my Georgetown info for the admitted students site, so hopefully that means I'm in. Still no letter though. And Penn, please put me under review!
12/6/10-- Decision letter sent at NYU! Thinking I got in. . . can't wait to find out for sure.
12/2/10-- Missed the update-- under review at Chicago since 12/1/10.
12/1/10-- Status checker 11/15-->11/18-->12/1 complete dates at Georgetown. Hopefully some good news coming soon!
11/23/10-- Under review at NYU!
11/18/10-- just got the official Harvard complete email. I've been under review for awhile though, so I think I've been complete a few weeks. Georgetown status checker changed to Complete 11/15-->11/18.
11/15/10-- Complete at Georgetown. File submitted for review at Stanford!
11/10/10-- Got Georgetown application received email.
11/9/10-- Got my NYU application received email.
11/8/10-- under review at Duke!. . . and just checked the Harvard status checker, and I'm under review (since last Friday!)!
11/2/10-- apparently NYU is bad about sending out application received emails. . . . not worried. And. . . all applications are in! Here's to a (hopefully) good cycle!
