Extra Curricular Information

Now with real numbers and year

School choice #s are my rankings (http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=29228), not necessarily my preferences.

Additional info & updates

When factoring in scholarship, tuition, fees, medical insurance and housing, I calculated the actual additional cost vs. Michigan as:
Chicago: $77,000
NYU: $111,000

A theoretical Columbia with $0 scholarship would have been $164,000 more, which made declining the waitlist very easy.

(10/28) Admitted at Duke by Email
(11/2) I find out I am in at Georgetown because I can log into the Admitted Students site! Status checker had not changed
(11/13) Michigan status checker to Decision
(11/20) Woken up by phone call asking if I got Berkeley's email. I check, and I'm in. Never get a call from Dean Tom.
(12/3) Invitation to apply for Darrow
(12/4) Submitted Darrow essay
NYU package was postmarked (12/5), slow mail.
(12/19) Full Darrow, tuition + 7500 stipend

Congrats on your awesome cycle. Please withdraw from xyz school! I love it. Have you heard back from Chicago about increasing your scholarship? Let me know how it goes. I think I'll try a similar tactic after ASW. (Although, I dont have a Darrow to match)

haha - yeah

Nice stalking abilities! How the hell did you narrow it down to me?

nice cycle

Hey there, fellow Darrow! Your cost comparison breakdown really puts things in perspective (I couldn't be bothered to actually figure out the price differences.) Congrats on making a decision (the right one, IMHO), and see you in the fall!

yup

they were for my majors, but I\'m pretty sure I would have gone down by now after this last semester. So tired of bio! Congrats on your choices, and good luck with Michigan. =) -tracker

Thank you!

I must admit I\'m very envious of that fancy Darrow you got. Best of luck and kick some 1L ass!
