Additional info & updates

Dec 5: Georgetown acceptance letter. So fast! =)
Jan 14: Michigan rejection letter. So fast! =(
Jan 31: "On hold" at Northwestern via online status checker. Really, Northwestern?
Feb 8: Yale & Penn rejection letters. One-two double whammy.
Feb 11: Harvard deferral email. More shocked than anything that I wasn't rejected.
Feb 13: Columbia deferral letter dated Feb 8. Stop playin' games with my heart...
Feb 21: Duke waitlist email. You promised me a decision in ONE WEEK, not TWO FREAKIN' MONTHS, and after all that, you WAITLISTED me?
Mar 10: Chicago deferral letter dated Mar 5. Further review seems to indicate 'on hold' means waitlist here. Will educate myself further as to the intricacies of Chicago's statuses (stati?)
Mar 19: NYU acceptance letter dated Mar 12. FINALLY good news.
Mar 28: UVa notification email and status checker update. JUST TELL ME ALREADY DAMMIT
Mar 28: Withdrew from Duke, Georgetown, and Northwestern. Guys, I've been thinking, about us, and I don't see ourselves together three years down the line...
Mar 31: UVa "Priority Waitlisted" letter. All that hype for this?
Apr 20: Columbia reserve letter dated Apr 15. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet; a waitlist by any other name would suck as much.
Apr 22: Harvard rejection email. Why oh why couldn't you have done this to me two months earlier instead of stringing me along? Also, what, no letter? What am I supposed to burn and deface, a printout?
Apr 27: Georgetown financial aid letter: $20,000/year scholarship. Too bad I already withdrew. Georgetown isn't taking the breakup well apparently =(
Apr 29: Made NYU deposit electronically. I guess I had a pretty easy choice to make this cycle.
Apr 30: Withdrew from UVa via email. I don't care how high a priority of a waitlist I'm on, I'm on the super-high-priority list at NYU, the ACCEPTED list.

Congrats on getting out so early, good luck with the school list.

I thought I was the youngest person on LSN! I turned 19 in May, started college at 14. I skipped all of high school. Good job on the LSAT, I had to take it twice to get that score :-D Do you think you could put me in touch with the person who made the above post? I'd like to talk to him/her about what it's like to be young at a top school. Thanks, and best of luck this cycle!

was your letter dated yesterday? or did you go to decision yesterday?

Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

I believe the letter came just today (since my mom just told me about it today), and the online status checker is "last updated" today. Guess I typoed up there =P

Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Georgetown!

Saturday, July 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

Good luck to you, I'm sure you'll have a ton of acceptances to go with the GULC :)

Good luck!

Good luck with all your apps! I applied ED because it was my number one choice. Even for undergrad, though I didn't get in. I've always wanted to be in the city, and I like it more than NYU.

Tuesday, October 02 2007 at 08:00 PM

about Michigan :'(

Tuesday, October 02 2007 at 08:00 PM

No, I won't be in DC for that, it's a long flight from CA... plus I've already visited their campus (it's really nice)

re: hold
Tuesday, October 02 2007 at 08:00 PM

haha yea, you're probably right. i'm sorry you were put on hold at northwestern, but it's much better than a rejection. nothing to get too bummed out about...

Thursday, January 17 2008 at 07:00 PM

on NYU! Do you think you're going to end up there ? Good luck with the rest. BTW: I was 20 when I applied in early Jan - 21 now. Would bother me if that was / is a factor for either of us... but NYU doesn't seem to mind at least.

Is this...

re: hey
Tuesday, October 02 2007 at 08:00 PM
