Extra Curricular Information

Paranoia will destroy ya, but let's face it, this game is almost over- so the numbers are real. :)

Think average everything. That's me!

Additional info & updates

Oh God, it's done!

The Money Game:

Illinois, Michigan, Washington and Minnesota are apparently merit-only scholarships. Everything else is a combination of merit and soul-crushing financial dire straits. Goodness I hope I go to a school with a good LRAP.

---Berkeley money is entirely need-based, the amount given is for the first year only. If you're poor and want to go into public interest, go to Berk!

Fee Waivers I Didn't Use (Or Have Yet To):

Notre Dame, USC, Vanderbilt, University of Texas, Yeshiva, George Mason, U of Alabama (go Free Itunes!), and a few others. Also Quinnipiac. Quinnipiac many MANY times.

11/7/08: In at Duke via e-mail sent at 8:30 on a Friday night. I love you Bill Hoye, thank you for giving me some much needed peace of mind. Time for a drink or five.

--The acceptance package itself came in 11/14/08. It's a very pretty folder thing, and I even got a lanyard so hopefully I won't keep losing my keys.

11/12/08: in at Georgetown via deceptively small envelope, with a nice little handwritten note on one of the acceptance pages- which everybody gets, but is still a very nice touch.

11/25/08: Flew back to my home state of MN, and when I touched down realized I had a gotten a voicemail acceptance from the U of M en route. My love for the U is endless, Go Gophers!

---Got the official acceptance in the mail (12.8.08) along with a scholarship offer. Neat. Free money!

11/28/08: In at Michigan Ann Arbor- Awesome! I got a cool free zip drive too. I love swag. Also, it had a little personalized note on one of the pages, very nice.

12/8/08: In at Cornell via large envelope. Kind of figured because my status changed to decision last week and had a bunch of admitted student stuff on it, but now I have actual proof. Sweet.

12/12/08: Deferred at Columbia via (at least) nice letter on their nice stationary. Will reevaluate in March. Yeah, probably not gonna get in. Oh well, que sera sera.

12/12/08: Got into Washington University via e-mail. Neat, and kinda takes the sting off of Columbia. Hurrah!

12/30/08: Came back from X-mas vacation to find an acceptance to Illinois with nearly a full scholarship. Thanks guys! (I have no idea when the letter actually came, so I just set the decision for a few days after the letter was postmarked.)

1/9/09: Accepted at Northwestern via e-mail, sometime in the afternoon. After the acceptance e-mail, I then got an e-mail asking me to look at my status checker for the official letter.

--Is it bad that at this point I really look forward to getting the letters proper to see what kind of free stuff I can get? I really, really want a Free T-shirt.

2/2/9: Waitlisted at UCLA. Huh? Note: Didn't bother to send back the form, so I believe I informally withdrew.

2/12/09: Got an e-mail that I got sent to Berkeley Faculty Review. I'll count that as a deferral.

3/5/09: Oh UVA, you so classy. Had a really bad day, got an e-mail at 9 with a nice ol' waitlist to top it all off. ;P Withdrew immediately, as no offense, but Charlottesville is a little creepy. The McDonalds is red brick. C'mon!

3/19/09: ...got into Berkeley??? GOT INTO BERKELEY!!!

4/5/09: Columbia deferred me again. Until May. At which point they'll waitlist me. You heard it here first!

Our numbers are really close...good luck in your cycle!

Friday, February 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

I'm not sure yet; it's still pretty early in the cycle for me. I guess it boils down to where I get in and how my visits go. I guess financial aid might be a consideration as well. What about yourself?

Wednesday, July 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on G-town. I doubt your numbers are "average." ;)

Tuesday, August 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

We have really similar numbers. I'm applying ED to Columbia too, so here's hoping for both of us! Good luck with your cycle!!

Tuesday, August 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

I actually have the same index number as you at CLS (my GPA is slightly lower, but paranoia....). Anyway, I'm a two-time LSATer, so we'll see. You must be happy to have two acceptances under your belt!

Congrats

On Duke

Congrats

On Georgetown

Tuesday, August 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

I don't know about you, but this CLS waiting is becoming seriously torturous.

Saturday, October 25 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on the acceptances. Your acceptance to Mich gave me hope until I realized you are likely fudging your #'s down rather than up. Good luck on Columbia.

Tuesday, August 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! I was excited to get Georgetown, but I'm tired of the "hurry up and wait" game for CLS. Congrats on Michigan! That's pretty high on my list :)

Thanks lady!
Tuesday, August 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'm excited..it was definitely surprising. I hope you keep pursuing Columbia, though it's not like you don't have amazing options already!!! Honestly, my one regret is that I don't get to consider Michigan, I really fell more and more in love with it as I looked at their website/brochures/etc.

Nice going
