I trust that the JR1 interview went well, I'm anxiously awaiting one. Your cycle should turn out just A OK. Nice numbers by the way, they look familiar.

congrats!
Tuesday, November 03 2009 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Georgetown (and UCLA with scholly!), my near number twin!!

Wednesday, September 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'd give it a few more days for your JR2.... four days is a bit quick ;) Congrats with everything else though! We have close stats...I'm waiting for my JR1! Best of luck.

Harvard
Wednesday, September 16 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey man, yeah you too. I sort of doubt more are coming today, but maybe we'll sneak into one of the December batches.

thanks!
Sunday, July 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

I was checkin you out a few days ago I think. It seems like JR sent a bunch of JR1's to URMs recently, so maybe he is considering us all together. Anyways I think you'll get good news soon enough ;) Check your pm's for my stats. Best of luck!!!

yay!
Tuesday, November 03 2009 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on BU, twin! Now, if only I could get MY phone call.... :)

Congrats on the JR1!
Monday, July 06 2009 at 08:00 PM

I hope a JR2 is on its way for you! Also, for my sake, since I'm in the "not usually accepted this early but had an early JR1" boat. I guess admits traditionally go out on Mondays?

woo!
Tuesday, November 03 2009 at 07:00 PM

You're just racking up the acceptances! Awesomeeeee getting into Berkeley!!!! I love when law schools give 168s some love :)

woop!
Tuesday, November 03 2009 at 07:00 PM

More 168 love :) Congrats on Michigan!!!! I just got accepted to UVA!!!!

hmmm...
Tuesday, November 03 2009 at 07:00 PM

good question! It varies with the school. I was strong considering applying ED to GWU for the scholly chance, but wanted to wait until I received as many decisions back as possible before the Dec. 15 deadline. I've pretty much decided to just apply there RD now that I'm in at GTown and UVA. The rest of the schools had something complicated about their application--i.e. additional essays, etc.--that I just haven't been able to really focus on with the semester of school winding down/finals/etc. Applications just suck the life out of me! I know it usually helps to apply earlier rather than later, but since I applied to many schools, I slowed down.

You just keep piling them on
Thursday, October 22 2009 at 08:00 PM

Evidently Berkeley wasn't enough for you in early December, clearly you needed Michigan and Cornell too, lol. Congrats man I'm very happy for you. I dont even know you yet I feel like your success is my success, must be the bond of number twins.

Looks like you don't have to be jealous
Monday, July 06 2009 at 08:00 PM

about Michigan anymore! congrats!

Stanford / Harvard
Wednesday, September 16 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey thanks man, I appreciate the well-wishes. I'll be watching closely to see if you and some of the other JR2-less people get a call from Harvard, so hang tough.

woo!!
Tuesday, November 03 2009 at 07:00 PM

congrats on Cornell, Michigan, Penn, etc.!! You're just pullin in the acceptances :)

haha...
Tuesday, November 03 2009 at 07:00 PM

I promise I'll get them in within the next two days!!!!

Congrats on your cycle so far, and good luck with the rest!

Wednesday, September 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey congrats on your success so far! Just wondering what your softs were(PM me if you don't want to post it publicly)? Your numbers are solid, but I'm wondering what you thought made you stand out?

Monday, June 29 2009 at 08:00 PM

AA male. Huge splitter though so my cycle was bound to be unpredictable. Congrats on all your great acceptances thus far. Hope HYS work out for you.

Wednesday, September 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey thanks :) Here's to good news for the both of us!

Thanks
Saturday, September 19 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey thanks, congrats to you too on your acceptances so far, and good luck with the rest of your cycle!

Harvard
Wednesday, September 16 2009 at 08:00 PM

Haha honestly I wish I knew the answer to that.

Hey sucks
Sunday, November 22 2009 at 07:00 PM

About Yale huh? Ah well, I guess there's still Harvard and Stanford, right?

Nope
Sunday, November 22 2009 at 07:00 PM

JR apparently hasn't found me interesting (yet?) :( Gotta say, I'm suprised you haven't heard from NYU yet. I wouldn't worry though - they've probably got you in a money pile :)

congrats!
Friday, December 04 2009 at 07:00 PM

Wow - great cycle! Funny about Duke asking for an interview and your already into Stanford and Berkeley! I'm in the Harvard hold club too so best of luck!

ucla maybe?
Friday, December 04 2009 at 07:00 PM

hmm clearly I've spent a little too much time on TLS/LSN and maybe am thinking about Stanford a little too much too. but yes congrats on all the great acceptances anyways

Sunday, December 06 2009 at 07:00 PM

hi Core- it's hannah87 from TLS. the one who went to the same "TTT Public" as you ;) wondering if you're in MHC? Also, I'm betting you're getting into NYU this week!

TTT
Sunday, December 06 2009 at 07:00 PM

i am working full time, but it's not a legal job...it's in the quality improvement dept at a hospital, which is sort of indirectly related to medical malpractice law, but i'm not particularly interested in that. i think the school name made it difficult for me to get a paralegal job post-grad. the BALA program at our TTT is actually what got me interested in law though, so i am grateful for that :)

nyu 168 acceptance
Sunday, December 06 2009 at 07:00 PM

i'm going to go with good news,if only to make myself feel a little better! either way, you have some fantastic options to "fall back" on. GOOD LUCK!

columbia
Sunday, December 06 2009 at 07:00 PM

boo. i have a feeling they're just trying to gauge your interest, though. i'm rooting for you!

Sunday, December 06 2009 at 07:00 PM

reserve at CLS. i think i'll ride it out. i have a good feeling about your hold!

Sunday, January 24 2010 at 07:00 PM

Thanks man! Good luck to you too! One question, how long after you went under review for Harvard did you get contacted for a JR1?

Thursday, October 22 2009 at 08:00 PM

Lol, thanks. Congrats on your acceptances as well! I think someone from HSCN is going to bite for you. Besides you have Berkeley and Chicago, to name just a few, youre in a great position right now. Are you still going to the Berkeley ASW?

Thursday, October 22 2009 at 08:00 PM

Makes sense, I would probably choose Chicago over NYU as well. I've already attended Harvard's ASW, it was great. They did an amazing job "selling" the school, not that they needed to. I plan on attending both Stanford's and Berkeley's ASWs. Of course if I get into Yale I will be attending their ASW as well.

Sunday, December 06 2009 at 07:00 PM

thanks!!! the fordham $ is really great. i'm visiting UVa in april, but i'm leaning toward fordham now, just because virginia is pretty unrealistic in my situation. are you thinking chicago?? more nyu acceptances should be coming in the next week or two- i hope you get one!!

...
Sunday, January 24 2010 at 07:00 PM

Not a word from Harvard over here. But, silence is at least better than a ding. You were held by Columbia? Hopefully you hear something soon. You definitely leaning Penn with scholarship over Chicago?

NYU slowness
Sunday, December 06 2009 at 07:00 PM

it's so painful! i can't believe you haven't heard, either. big congrats on the michigan and upenn scholarships!!!!

Wish I knew, but...
Sunday, November 22 2009 at 07:00 PM

I have a theory - our awesomeness shines like the sun, and they fear going blind if they look at our apps too long :D Thanks, and congrats to you too - that Penn scholly is nothing to frown at!

Tuesday, June 09 2009 at 08:00 PM

Haha, thank you. It was a single take and I have nothing terrible on my record. Completely free of disciplinary issues. There are a couple minor weaknesses and I guess my personal statement was kind of risky, but I think it's also that it's a really tough year. I feel really lucky and flattered that a T14 offered me so much money in this economy and cycle though, and a lot of people are telling me that this is better than Harvard at sticker, and maybe even Yale (I would definitely still take Yale over this though. Good luck with your top choices!

Waaaaitlist time!
Sunday, November 22 2009 at 07:00 PM

Are you planning to stick it out to the bitter end like me? XD

Wednesday, September 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

Currently going to Penn... decided I'd rather be on the east coast this fall. What's your plan? Will I see you around?

reply to anon
Tuesday, August 25 2009 at 08:00 PM

I think they did - i.e. the fin aid I got, my acceptance at Chi, and my HLS interview. I think it was a just a tough cycle. I am also half white and indicated as such in my app.
