ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

9/2017: Current junior, applying Fall 2018 for Fall 2019 admission. Took LSAT and scored 172.

8/2018: Retook in July 2018 for a 177. Wrote "Why" for Duke, Virginia, Penn, Cornell, Berkeley.

1/7: Uhhhhh?? Just got into Yale apparently. Stoked. Shocked. SO confused about where I want to go!

4/26: Negotiation with Chicago did not net a Ruby. I am very, very excited to say that I will be at Yale this Fall. Maybe even a little guiltily happy that I don't have to make the tough decision myself, haha.

8/23/18: My profile will be private until the end of my cycle, but I'll keep this stuff updated for future applicants. I know how frustrating it can be to click on a profile and not see the information you want to know. Feel free to PM me on Reddit (same name). Requested a BUNCH of waivers three days ago -- basically every T14 outside of HYS and then Fordham and Vanderbilt. Mich, Virginia, and Cornell gave me direct waivers. Vanderbilt asked for proof, and Duke forwarded me to the Dean of Admissions who I haven't heard from yet. The remaining schools were an even split between "email us after Sep 1" and "we don't do individuals, wait for CRS."

Mich, Vanderbilt, and Stanford's apps are open. I "finished" the Stanford app but I can't submit until I finish my Knight-Hennessy application. I finished Vanderbilt, but am waiting for them to confirm receipt of my documents and send me a waiver. And... I submitted for Michigan! Incredibly excited.

9/2/2018: Whew! Submitted so MANY schools. Here's the rundown: had a UPenn hidden waiver, so I had a waiver for every school except HYSCCN which I just bit the bullet for rather than waiting for CCN waivers. Submitted Knight-Hennessy. I did NOT receive a Duke priority track invitiation despite receiving one last year when I originally created my LSAC account and took the LSAT for the first time, but I requested one from the dean and had my request granted. Duke's app just went complete today, but I assume the other schools won't be complete until this Labor Day weekend is over. Berkeley's app has an error so I can't submit yet. I dropped Fordham and Georgetown from my list -- figured I wouldn't go even if accepted and I will hopefully have better negotiation options.
