Extra Curricular Information

I know I'm a longshot for all these schools but no harm in trying. Hopefully my great soft factors (stellar internships and public interest work by any standards)will have some weight.

GPA is rounded by.02

FYI: I've taken the LSAT 3 times already; 161, Cancel, 162.
For anyone that might ask I have gotten into my t40 state school with scholarship. Just didn't want to post all of my info....

FOR FUTURE APPLICANTS: do whatever it takes; take whatever classes you have to in order to get a high LSAT score and solid gpa. Judging based off of my cycle and looking around on LSN, soft factors (even amazing ones) mean absolutely nothing as does your major. Good luck!

Additional info & updates

5/26 .....FYI....JUST HANGIN AROUND......

We're still waiting, I guess. I'm entirely against telling me there's a decision without letting me know what it is.

same boat
Wednesday, November 26 2008 at 07:00 PM

looks like we're in the same boat - i'm applying to most of the same schools and have similar stats to you but since you a pplied 2 months ahead of me... guess i'll be gauging my chances from your decisions :)

Same Boat
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hit hard the first few times myself, heres hoping your alma mater will take me...

me too
Monday, October 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

good luck with your apps too!

Saturday, July 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey - thanks. I haven't put up my entire list of schools -- I'll do that one by one, I guess. Good luck to you on your cycle.

Wednesday, November 26 2008 at 07:00 PM

dude - sorry to hear about upenn... how many of the optional essays did you write? i heard speculation about them not being so optional and whatnot and was curious....

Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

im impressed by your sense of humor and good attitude about all of this insanity. good luck to you and i hope everything works out; i am sure the new year will bring some good news.

UMN!
Wednesday, November 26 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hey! I feel your pain with the waiting FOREVER! I have kind of a silly question...did your UMN status checker just change to decision sent today and it came? (I'm at home for the holidays and my letters are being sent to my apt 3 hrs away at school and I'm not sure if i should ask my BF to go ck the mail today or tomorrow haha) thanks! and goodluck with LIFE!

Sorry about the ding. I got that email a month ago. "we thought you would appreciate speed over formality..." NOOOOOOOO.

UVA
Saturday, October 18 2008 at 08:00 PM

I agree with your "Hmmmmm"....rejection by e-mail not too cool...But, good luck with the rest of your cycle ...lots of great schools left to hear from !!

This coming week ---
Saturday, October 18 2008 at 08:00 PM

only happy thoughts for you...!!

Looks like our fates our intertwined once again....GOOD LUCK. Let me know when you hear.

Don't Open your Mail

Just...Don't.

Vandy
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

I guess Im lucky, I didn't go to decision. Im still breathing, on a respirator, but still breathing.

waiting!
Wednesday, November 26 2008 at 07:00 PM

Heyyy! Im in the waiting and still waiting spot...just changed to dec at Georgetown today but im trying not to get my hopes up! sorry abt Vandy BUT dont give up hope im sure you will get the first YES soon and then a lot more following that :)

BWAHAHAHAHAHA
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

ya Chicago is coming...Are we being punked?

it is abysmal
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

each day i doubt myself more and force myself to spend those long dull hours at work contemplating other careers (is it too late for academia? does the world need antoher chef?). im disappointed because i thought that this would be THE WEEK, with a slew of notices. instead, there is dead silence and that much more time for applicants more qualified than me to get a foot in the door. this is madness! i applied 3 months ago!!! ahhhhh... haha i hope you are fairing better :) whatever the case, im sure in just a few months we will look back and laugh at ourselves.

Ouch !!
Saturday, October 18 2008 at 08:00 PM

Saw the UCLA result just now. Chin up, though, as you say...

Monday, December 08 2008 at 07:00 PM

good luck with the rest of your choices!

re: congrats
Friday, January 09 2009 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the message! Good luck with your cycle.

Thanks
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

Ya, two waitlists in two days isn't to shabby, and I think number 3 is coming from vandy this afternoon. Still waiting on your alma matter. Whats taking so long?

Unreal
Saturday, October 18 2008 at 08:00 PM

Just saw your post on GW !!! Unreal situation .... keep your chin up and think good thoughts for the rest....

UT
Sunday, September 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

How did you find out? Via status checker?

waitlists
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey dude, are you fighting for those two waitlists. I'm flying to Boston and LA in the next couple weeks. You can handle those two schools in one trip. FIGHT dude.

Flying Out
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

Yes. Interview if you can. They take kids off the waitlist who they think will go to their school. Nothing they hate more than a withdrawing from a WL'er. Fly out. Show your interested. It won't hurt unless your not a good interviewer.

...
Wednesday, November 26 2008 at 07:00 PM

I predict you will get into WashU and Emory! (and hopefully I will too) :) keep your head up we all know this stupid process sucks!

Other schools
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

Dude. I think you need to strongly consider adding a few sure fire schools as we get close to deadlines. Ohio State? Alabama? Georgia? Boulder?

hey friend
Tuesday, December 16 2008 at 07:00 PM

howre you holding up? no good news yet--its inconceivable!!!

Thursday, August 28 2008 at 08:00 PM

Dude, don't give up!! You have good numbers, it's not fair that you have been treated this way this cycle. Have you thought about re-taking the LSAT? May be Emory will take you.

Good
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'M GOING TO LAW SCHOOL. I am actually writing this from my temp office at my firm's LA office. I'm on the 42nd floor looking at the US bank building, the highest building west of the Missisippi. Just visited UCLA, went well.

unfair
Thursday, August 28 2008 at 08:00 PM

Dude, if you were black, not only would you have been admitted into every single school, you would have been offered full rides. Be aggressive with your waitlists, don't just sit back!!

It's ON!
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

We're in a head to head competition now. Waitlisted at Notre Dame. This is one of those friends into rivals type deals. We need theme music.

Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

now were battling at fordham. o well, i don't know if i'll fight for this one...

ehhh
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'm going to ohio state this afternoon for an ASW. If i like it you'll see atleast two of those WL with a big Withdraw next to them. The price difference for 5 in the rankings, not worth it. Plus I'm an ohio boy. Staying in ohio isn't a bad thing for me. I have connections, and in state tuition is AMAZING. So hopefully this weekend goes well.

Love it
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

If they give me some money your going to see lots of W's on my page. Esp if they give me their BIG scholarship, which pays me to go there

thanks.
Thursday, October 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

Your optimism is really hopeful -- I hope that, at some point, something great will turn out for you.

EMORY
Wednesday, November 26 2008 at 07:00 PM

any word from emory champ? i'm home for spring break and mails being sent to my apt 3 hrs away...going crazyyy!

FIGHT
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

I just got back from ND. Keep fighting dude for those WL's. I'm sure one of them will take you off. I'm sorry to hear about Emory. I am now scared to death

UMN
Wednesday, August 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

are you planning on sticking out the UMN waitlist? it seems like there are not very many of us that got waitlisted this year, so maybe that means are chances are good :)

Wednesday, August 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

Yeah im gonna stick it out, i think the deposit deadline is fast approaching so Im hoping they start going to the waitlist soon. they seem to really be giong for high scores this year, i guess we picked a bad year to apply lol.

Emory.
Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

So, um... Any apartment shopping tips for Emory?
