Thanks for your note. The hardest part about getting in those apps were the very essays you're working on. Don't despair!
Haha, definitely looking forward to getting that done with! Good luck on it!
Thanks for the note. I chose to apply to NYU because of its commitment to public interest law. . . . By the way, good luck with your Toby Stock phone call!
Thanks for your note! Harvard is a great acceptance for you to start off an awesome cycle :)
Congrats to you, too!
Congrats on Harvard man.
Yeah, pretty nice to have Harvard as your "safety" the rest of the way... how insane is that? Congrats again.
Congrats on your acceptances so far! You have some great choices ahead of you! Good luck with the rest of your cycle!
Great job on Stanford!
wow! great work. once you get yale, you'll have conquered the big 3. just curious, could you display your softs? (PM if don't want to reveal. just trying to weigh my chances. thanks!)
CLS has plenty of prestige. Take the money and run to NYC! Major congrats on the full ride!
Great job on Stanford!
Congrats to you too! The Hamilton is definitely tempting, but, like you, academia is at least a possibile goal for me, so I think I need to go up the food chain as high as possible. But HLS's course offerings/professors in my field are far superior to Yale's in number and quality, I think, so who knows? I'm kind of stumped. What are your thoughts? Yale if you get in?
Hey, I totally understand underwhelming responses from family about YLS! I think mine was something along the lines of "OK...I suppose that is good," which prompted my jaw to drop and just hang there for a few seconds. Anyway, props on the great cycle and hopefully I'll see you at ASW. -Adam
Hey, you are braver than I am for withdrawing from all but Yale and Columbia. Hope to see you at one of these events... and enjoy/stress over the decision.
Same to you! Props for doing all the withdrawing. I'm leaning heavily towards Yale but I can't bring myself to withdraw from either HLS or CLS just yet. Perhaps I'll save myself from the pain of deciding on one and do 9 nine consecutive years of law school...haha. Which one are you leaning towards right now?
So I just got back from visits to YLS, HLS, CLS, and NYU. I really liked CLS - the profs, the facilities, the city. But Yale blew me away. I think you mentioned that you might want to do academia, so it really seems like Yale is the right choice. Not necessarily because it's Yale and so many of its students get into academia (I do think it's a lot of self selection), but because of the size. I got the feeling that the school and the profs really want everyone to succeed, and they all get help on an individual level. You can't put a price on that kind of attention.
We're almost numbers twins, so I just wanted to say hi and wish you good luck, though I certainly hope neither of us will need it! :)
