Additional info & updates

Very anxious to be in law school. Hoping for the best for everyone.
Trying to put as much info here to help everyone out.

Basically, NYU / CLS were always my top choices as I wanted to stay in NYC. Obviously a decision from HLS or YLS or money at another T6 would have complicated things, but realistically NYU and CLS were my top.

Luckily, things didn't get complicated and my whole process was very anticlimactic. I heard from NYU first - 2 weeks after I applied. I was speechless as I opened the package and I still think that I am dreaming.

Anyway, withdrew from most other schools quickly thereafter. Here's the info I can provide about the notifications from the schools I stuck with:

NYU - big, first class envelope.

CLS - small envelope.

Brooklyn - e-mail from status check.

Fordham - e-mail from status check.

Hofstra - big first class envelope.

Emory - big first class envelope.

Yale - small envelope.

Penn - small envelope.

Georgetown - small envelope.

Other than that, not sure how else I can help. Good luck to all of you. Please feel free to ask me questions. I won't be checking this often but I will check it.

Thanks!

looks like we are applying to many of the same schools with similar numbers and both late in the cycle! hopefully we will start to hear good news soon!

Congrats!
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On NYU!

Congrats!
Friday, January 11 2008 at 07:00 PM

on NYU! Looks like your cycle is about to pick up, and what a way to start! Maybe I'll see you at ASW.

thanks
Sunday, October 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

and if this whole law thing doesn't work out maybe I have a future as a story teller....good luck on the rest of your cycle! I am sure many great acceptances are headed your way

thanks!

Hey thanks! Looks like you're off to a great start. Any idea where you want to end up?

Emory
Tuesday, June 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

Just curious but did you get an acceptance phone call from Emory before you received the envelope?

Thanks for your quick response. Congrats on Emory and on NYU!

Thanks
Tuesday, July 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

And congratulations to you, also. You are doing pretty well for a few weeks after sending them in! Any ideas where you want to go (since you will clearly have lots of choices)...

Kind words
Saturday, February 09 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thank you very much for the kind words. Would feel better if I had your numbers but it is what it is. Best of luch to you as well. I know that you will do very well this cyle.

thanks
Friday, December 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

looks like you'll be having some major success this cycle as well! best of luck!

Thanks

Thanks for the message -- I don't go to Stern/NYU, I go to a different school in NYC. Congrats on NYU though, its a great acceptance!

Thanks
Friday, January 11 2008 at 07:00 PM

For your thanks! Looks like you're pretty set on somewhere in New York. I am not sure yet whether NYU or Columbia is better (and for me), though at this point the money would definitely swing me to Columbia. What's your preference?

NYU it is
Friday, October 26 2007 at 08:00 PM

unless someone else wants to pay for my education...highly unlikely

Thanks
Wednesday, February 27 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the kind note. I'm no longer at NYU, but I did go to Stern for undergraduate. Congrats on your acceptances!

Congrats on NYU
Monday, July 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

Right now I'm leaning towards taking the scholarship at Vanderbilt. Money from NYU could change my mind, but I doubt that I'll get any.

RE: Congrats!
Thursday, May 18 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! Congrats on your NYU acceptance as well. I'm visiting Chicago in April b/c I'm pretty split b/w the two. It's probably coming down to financial aid. I noticed you didn't withdraw from Columbia (or GULC) - could either of them really stop you from enrolling at NYU?

Thanks!!
Saturday, September 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats to you too on your acceptances so far. UVA definitely tugs at my heart a little bit, but I think I'll visit at least a few. I have a crush on Harvard too, but they're playing hard to get. Do you have any top choices?

thanks
Monday, November 05 2007 at 07:00 PM

and congrats on yours too! i take it you're leaning toward nyu at this point. i think i am as well... really love the city and the public interest program. but it's a tough decision and i'll definitely be making some visits over the next month. good luck with the rest of your applications!

on the acceptances so far! Are you going to the NYU ASW?

Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

thanks! congrats to you too! feels good, doesn't it? Yeah, I will probably end up going in the fall, and I'm definitely going to an ASW. I already sat in on a couple of classes to scope it out and really liked it.

NYU ASW
Thursday, October 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

I'll be at the April 18th ASW. Already booked my flight!

ASDs
Saturday, September 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

NYU is great! I'm in a similar situation, where only a Harvard acceptance would prevent me from going to UVA. I'm trying to keep an open mind though... I went to the UVA ASD and am planning on NYU and Michigan's.

thanks
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

I'm not totally sure. It's up to Columbia/Chicago/Harvard, I think I'd rather go to one of those three instead. But I'm very very pleased to be accepted to NYU, even if we're a bit young :)

absolutely!
Sunday, April 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

I'm thinking of going to the last ASD, but I might go to the next one if I can get plane fare at a reasonable price. You?

NYU
Thursday, April 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks, and congrats to you on NYU. Is that where you will be going? And, have you attended one of the Admitted Student Days?
