How did you feel about the school last year? Any specifics you can share would be appreciated.

Sunday, November 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

Nice work on IU! There will be more...

Monday, December 19 2005 at 07:00 PM

On Boalt, did you go to Cal UG? NIce to see a person dedicated to young people and social justice in that school!!!

Monday, December 19 2005 at 07:00 PM

I see PAC 10 I think cal for whatever reason. Your school is cooler anyways--13% African Americans is way more then Cal's less then 2%...so sad. I am glad that there is one more brown face in the Bears Liar! Where would be your first choice?

Congrats on Boalt
Saturday, December 03 2005 at 07:00 PM

We have similar numbers so that gives me some hope although you went to a much better undergrad. Boalt is pretty much my number one at this point.

Sunday, March 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Duke! I hope to hear from them soon. What does it mean when you put "H" in the "Choice" column?

Sunday, December 04 2005 at 07:00 PM

boalt or ucla two great choices

Sunday, September 25 2005 at 08:00 PM
