Additional info & updates

"Choice" if #1 reflects my dream schools, all others are numbered according to USNWR 2011 Rankings.

All scholarships are 3 year totals.

-- October 19, 2009 - Well, I felt like it could have been better, but we're going with 169. Time to apply!

-- Thanksgiving Weekend - All apps are OUT!

-- December 2, 2009 - Goodbye UVA (via e-mail from Dean Trujillo), I still love you. At least now I know how that feels ... no matter how big of a reach, rejections certainly don't tickle.

-- December 7, 2009 - Received, Complete and Accepted to UGA via status checker. First one feels good. Large white envelope about a week later.

-- December 14, 2009 - In at UMiami via snail mail, large white envelope.

-- December 18, 2009 - In at Wake via e-mail. Letter arrived 12/21/09.

-- January 6, 2010 - Starting to worry that no news may not be good news in this case. Perhaps looking forward to a February filled with waitlists and rejections.

-- January 8, 2010 - E-mail from UM saying I've been awarded a scholarship and it should be arriving in the mail shortly. I live less than 10 miles from the school, you'd think it'd get here pretty quickly.

-- January 11, 2010 - Acceptance from W&L, small white envelope. 23k a year from UM arrived today as well.

-- January 19, 2010 - Decision mailed from UF. Acceptance arrived on 1/26/10, large white evelope.

-- January 21, 2010 - In at WUSTL via e-mail, with mention of scholarship consideration. My first T20 acceptance!!

-- January 22, 2010 - In at GW via snail mail, large white envelope.

-- January 26, 2010 - 20k a year scholarship from Wake via e-mail if I stay in the top 2/3 of my class!! Woo Hoo!!

-- January 29, 2010 - 17k a year scholarship from W&L via e-mail if I maintain a 3.0 GPA. I'm pretty surprised, I really wasn't expecting much in the way of scholarships from them.

-- February 9, 2010 - Tuition equalization for my first year arrived from UGA (approx $15k). Also received a USB from WUSTL with all of their collateral materials already downloaded, pretty cool, very "GREEN" of them!

-- February 25, 2010 - 10k a year from WUSTL via e-mail.

-- February 26, 2010 - Rejection e-mail from Georgetown. Also, decision mailed from Vanderbilt.

-- March 1, 2010 - Rejection e-mail from Duke.

-- March 2, 2010 - Waitlist arrived today from BU, snail mail; I'll be withdrawing.

-- March 5, 2010 - Vanderbilt waitlist arrived today, I've never been so please to hear "probably not" :) I'll definitely ride this one out.

-- March 9, 2010 - Rejected at UT via status checker.

-- March 15, 2010 - "Claim Your Spot" acceptance package from Emory arrived today via snail mail. Decision was reached at Cornell; notification should be on the way.

-- March 17, 2010 - Happy St. Patty's Day!! Withdrew from UM, UF, and W&L this afternoon, and reserved my scholarship at UGA.

-- March 19, 2010 - Waitlisted by W&M via e-mail, saw this one coming since 12/9/09 when I was placed on indefinitely internal hold; I'll be withdrawing.

-- March 23, 2010 - Cornell rejection arrived via snail mail.

-- March 31, 2010 - Well, deposit time for Wake and WUSTL has arrived (due on 4/1/10) if I want to keep my scholarship and I can't seem to pull the trigger. Looks like I'm down to GW, Emory, and UGA! Still no word from UNC.

-- April 7, 2010 - Officially forfeited my scholarship and withdrew from Wake. That was tough.

-- April 29, 2010 - Waitlist e-mail from UNC. I will not be returning the WL form.

-- June 25, 2010 - Still sitting pretty on the Vandy WL.

-- July 15, 2010 - Have not officially removed myself from the Vandy WL but I am 99.99% attending UGA either way at this point. GO DAWGS!

Waiting for 2010 cycle, too
Friday, February 27 2009 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the wall comment about NCCU. I responded on my page. I'm going to be reapplying next cycle, so we'll be battling out the waiting game together. I'm going to reapply to Carolina and Campbell, and shoot an app to Florida and Wake. This year, I'll be applying as soon as they start accepting apps. That's so important as far as money and acceptance through rolling admissions. Best of luck!

Saturday, April 25 2009 at 08:00 PM

Splitter pride.

Nice!
Friday, October 24 2008 at 08:00 PM

You rocked your LSAT. AWESOME!

Sept 09 Indeed!
Tuesday, August 04 2009 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the comment; I'm excited about the score! I'll be watching your cycle with eager eyes! Good luck!!

Oh...
Tuesday, August 04 2009 at 08:00 PM

P.S. - We may end up classmates at Vandy ;)

Good luck!
Thursday, August 06 2009 at 08:00 PM

Nicely done on the 169! I have a feeling that with a good GPA addendum that you'll get your shot at a t14 (:

Thanks!
Sunday, August 16 2009 at 08:00 PM

Thank you! Are you getting yours in soon?? Wanted to say hi from a TLS friend too!

Saturday, April 25 2009 at 08:00 PM

Nice job on the LSAT! My suggestion E-mail WUSTL and BU and ask for fee waivers. Good luck

Saturday, September 05 2009 at 08:00 PM

Good luck with your cycle! Congrats on the score! I am retaking in Dec so I wont be applying for a few more weeks. I wish all the other splitters out there good luck.

Good luck and all that!
Tuesday, March 03 2009 at 07:00 PM

I'm predicting a clean sweep ; ) Show 'em who's boss, Vik, good luck.

Vanderbilt
Tuesday, August 04 2009 at 08:00 PM

Have you ever visited the campus? It's beautiful...

Hi Vik!
Saturday, October 27 2007 at 08:00 PM

I think you are going to have some surprise "Holy Splitter" acceptances this cycle. TLS is rooting for ya :)

Thanks!
Saturday, February 28 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey, thanks for the note, good luck with your cycle, I know it will go well! Have you decided if you're going to ED anywhere?

Monday, October 12 2009 at 08:00 PM

Good luck on this cycle! :)

Thanks!
Friday, October 24 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thank you, Vik!! When are you getting those apps out?!?

UT
Saturday, February 28 2009 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, they just up and denied me. Even though I went to high school in Texas, lived there for 15 years, and my entire family lives there. They must be really keen on the GPA early this cycle, and my 175 won't raise their median any better than a 170, so they just don't care. Oh well, I like UVA!

Come on UVA!!
Saturday, February 28 2009 at 07:00 PM

Good luck!

sorry...
Thursday, September 25 2008 at 08:00 PM

that was me above. I always forget to log in lol

UVA
Wednesday, October 21 2009 at 08:00 PM

Wow that was fast. I am sure you will be fine going forward, good luck!

Sorry to get back so late
Monday, July 27 2009 at 08:00 PM

Sorry this took so long to post. I didn't even see I had visitor comments until today. I applied to PT Georgetown but unfortunately I got rejected today. Good luck with the rest of your cycle. So far the adcomms have not been particularly kind to us splitters.

Tuesday, June 16 2009 at 08:00 PM

Ha I know, we are twins! I'm getting my apps out asap, but I already feel so behind. Thanks for being less of a procrastinator than me so I can get some idea of how I'll do ha! Good luck

Sunday, October 04 2009 at 08:00 PM

We definitely have some overlap! I'm willing to bet your 4 points on the LSAT makes your cycle turn out better. I'm kind of bummed right now because I'm either deffered or rejected at Cornell, I'll find out in a couple days. Good luck!

apps out soon
Wednesday, October 21 2009 at 08:00 PM

I got most of them out last week, ill update this thing once everything is out. Ill send out four more today and then I have one that I have to write an additional essay for. Im basically still "working" on my reach/prayer apps thinking that im somehow making them tangibly better, which is def a lie. Congrats on UGA, lets hope the acceptances start rolling in....

Sunday, October 04 2009 at 08:00 PM

Thanks, I would have loved to attend Cornell, but I'd love to attend a lot of different schools (can you tell I'm trying not to cry lol, jk). Congrats on UGA, hopefully they send scholarship offers out soon!

Sunday, July 19 2009 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the kind words about UVA! Actually was rejected via e-mail by them yesterday so now I'm really hoping for good words from Vanderbilt and Emory. On the other hand, I always have UGA to fall back on! Any updates with your cycle?

check your mail
Wednesday, October 21 2009 at 08:00 PM

if my calculations are correct, i think you should have some good news waiting for you

G-town
Sunday, October 18 2009 at 08:00 PM

Thanks, unless some crazy stuff happens I'm think I'm going to end up attending Georgetown. I hope you hear some good news from them soon :)

UFlorida
Tuesday, June 30 2009 at 08:00 PM

I hope you get a good decision in the mail!

congrats!
Friday, July 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

congrats on your WUSTL and GW acceptances!

Monday, November 09 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey thanks for the congrats on TLS! Where are you leaning at this point? UGA still hasn't released scholarship $, with your LSAT you have a good chance.

Florida
Sunday, December 20 2009 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Florida that's awesome!!

congrats
Tuesday, June 30 2009 at 08:00 PM

congrats on Florida!

Vandy
Tuesday, August 04 2009 at 08:00 PM

Keep the faith! I wanna meet you at ASW!!

Congrats!!
Tuesday, August 04 2009 at 08:00 PM

On WUSTL! it's a fantastic school and St. Louis is a fun city. Also, WUSTL's campus is incredible. But hurry up and get into Vandy, will ya?? ;)

Where to go?
Friday, January 29 2010 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for your comment. Congrats on your cycle as well. Which way are you leaning? I really have no idea where I want to go. I'm thinking that things will just reveal themselves over the next few months. I haven't actually listed all the schools I've applied to and are just posting them as I go. I'm visiting WUSTL and going to a GW accepted students thing this month. Hopefully that will help. WUSTL is a great school but as of now it's up against schools in SF, LA and DC. Good luck with the rest of your schools!

GULC
Saturday, January 09 2010 at 07:00 PM

Sorry about Georgetown! I'm under review at GULC and Duke right now, and I'm holding out for a miracle. I'm sure you'll have better luck with Duke.

Duke
Friday, June 26 2009 at 08:00 PM

So sorry to hear about the Duke rejection...I know that was one I was rooting for both of us on...you have a great cycle though and you're going to end up somewhere awesome!

Duke
Saturday, January 09 2010 at 07:00 PM

Unfortunately, Duke rejected me this morning. I like the North Carolina and Virginia area, so I'm considering Wake Forest now. The scholarship didn't hurt. Good luck with the Vandy waitlist. What's your top choice right now?

woohoo emory!
Tuesday, June 30 2009 at 08:00 PM

congrats on emory, are you considering it?

Wednesday, February 24 2010 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Emory! By the way, have you written a LOCI to Vandy and/or arranged an interview? Do whatever you can to show your interest. I'm rooting for you!

thanks...
Thursday, September 25 2008 at 08:00 PM

I am still in shock over HLS haha. I am definitely leaning towards H right now but I also love a lot of the other schools I've been accepted too, plus the debt scares me.... basically I'm lost right now lol. good luck to you in making a decision :)

Congrats!
Wednesday, October 21 2009 at 08:00 PM

on Emory! thats huge! Also, I got WL'd by Vandy at some point over the weekend.

Decisions, Decisions
Friday, June 26 2009 at 08:00 PM

That's a tough choice...Vandy is a GREAT school (and I'm rooting for you to get off that WL!) but as you said paying sticker could be tough. Where would you be leaning to if you didn't take Vandy? I'm sure whatever you decide will work out really well for ya! I'm still holding out for Duke, but I really like BU, BC and WashU right now...I can't believe I have to decide soon! aagh! haha

w&m wl bomb
Wednesday, October 21 2009 at 08:00 PM

didnt escape it at all, just didnt update in time. Ive had a bit of a rough few weeks rejected at usc, ut and duke and then wl'd by w&m, hastings, vandy and emory. I think ill stay on the vandy list but probably nothing more, whats your waitlist plan?

W&M
Friday, March 12 2010 at 07:00 PM

Just FYI, W&M doesn't have a rolling admissions process so nobody had a decision until after 3/1.

Cornell
Monday, March 15 2010 at 08:00 PM

hey, sorry about cornell... i went to undergrad there... it's overrated :) where do you think you're going?

Cornell
Tuesday, August 04 2009 at 08:00 PM

Cornell can suck it 'cause we all know you're going to Vanderbilt anyway. So nyah. FAITH!!! :)

decisions decisions!
Tuesday, June 30 2009 at 08:00 PM

have you decided where you'll be in the fall?

Thursday, April 29 2010 at 08:00 PM

Felt the same way about forfeiting my wake scholarship- they were just too nice! What are you down to now?

same schools (almost)
Friday, June 26 2009 at 08:00 PM

I'm down to Emory and GW too!!! I think it's going to be GW though...what about you??
