***UPDATES***

11/1: It's ironic that of the first 16 applications I've sent, only Pitt has yet to request my law school report.

11/10: I just sent out my application to Michigan. For now, my list of schools is final, but if I am waitlisted or rejected from Penn, I will reevaluate accordingly.

11/16: I finally received my status checker from Pitt.

11/18: Accepted at Penn State via status checker.

11/19: Accepted at W&M via status checker. Getting into my first T30 feels awesome!

12/6: Rejected from GMU via email. An (anonymous) call to the dean revealed that it was most likely due to yield protection. In her own words, GMU's scholarship budget is so low, that if she feels an applicant isn't likely to attend, and is likely to get strong offers from other schools, you are very likely to be waitlisted or rejected, depending on how "apparent" this is.

Bottom line: if you're above both 75th percentiles, answer question #15 (To what other law schools have you applied or do you intend to apply?) at your own peril. Your answers will be held against you.

12/8: Accepted at Penn via phone call. My cycle is over, and I couldn't be happier!

Best of luck at Penn! It's a wonderful to be for Healthcare related things. If that doesn't work out UVA is always in your future. I work for a paper in Philly, I like A&E and food columnists :)

Good luck
