Additional info & updates

12/20 - Retook in Dec. Feeling much better about it - anxiously awaiting my new (hopefully vastly improved) score.

12/26 - A tad worried I don't have enough safeties...

12/29 - 163!! FRIGGIN' FANTASTIC NEWS! A tad disappointed I didn't break 165, but happy nonetheless. Feeling better about my reaches :)

1/2 -So, I'm tinkered the list a bit. I was planning on applying to Stanford as well (b/c I believe in miracles) but my LSAC fee waiver does not apply to them, and I'd have to apply for a specific SLS fee waiver (wish I had known about that earlier). If I come up with the money before it's ridiculously late, I may still do it.

Also, going back and forth over whether I should send in the UCLA app or just stop at 9 schools...I really have no idea what I'm doing - just hoping for the best.

1/5 - Just went complete at my first school - Berkeley! Eek - I'm officially a law school applicant *panic stricken*

1/14 - OMG, OMG - Just got an email that I'm under review at Berkeley! I think I'm going to have a full on heart attack *collapses*
*Also just called Cornell to inquire about my status - and they told me I was complete! The nice lady on the phone told me she would list me as complete and my app would be sent off to committee!!

1/15 - SLKDFJSOIFASHDFLAJK!!! I just got into Berkeley after going under review yesterday!!! I can't believe it!
*Now that I'm breathing again - just checked my Harvard status and I must have gone complete because it says I'm under review *shock*

1/23 - So I had thought being under review meant complete at Harvard...apparently not the case...got a complete email early today and nearly died.

1/29 - Went complete at Columbia today. It is welcome news considering I feel like it's been forever since I've heard anything from any schools. This process is making me crazy.

2/2 - So, it's a little after midnight and I just checked my status checker (prompted by TLS) and found out a decision has been reached at Georgetown O_O! The news could show up anytime...I might freak out...but it will be good to hear from another school :)

Checked the mail - thought the Georgetown decision had arrived, only to realize it was from American. Nevertheless, an ACCEPTANCE :)

2/3 - SQUEEE I just got into Hogwarts (aka Cornell)!! Came via email this morning. I knew that Blackberry was a good investment.

2/6 - Letter from Gtown finally arrived! IN :) Sooo excited.

2/8 - Got a first class package from Yale encouraging me to apply along with a fee waiver app. I had been planning on applying and had most of my materials prepared so I sent off the ultimate hail mary.

2/9 - So, I gave in to the paranoid ramblings in my mind and called NYU to see if I was complete - it's been a while. Well...the lady on the phone says they have received my app and will "let me know soon if I am complete or if they still need info from me." Strange - considering I called to find out of I was complete. Fueling my paranoia is the fact that numerous people on TLS are reporting receiving acceptances/rejections from NYU as of today...so, I'm guessing my news is in the mail.

On a side note - it seems Columbia is also sending out another batch to people w/ complete dates very close to mine...could I hear from Columbia and NYU this week?!? O_O

2/18 - So after crickets for a bit, I finally got a complete notice from NYU today, which is very saddening since I applied for one of their named scholarships back in December. If I'm just going complete now, there is no way I'm even in the running. Sad - I worked really hard on that extra essay *tear*

2/24 - OMG! I was skimming my favorite thread on TLS "Who did you hear from Today?" and saw that someone found out they were in NYU by logging into the admitted students page..well...I tried and I'M IN!!! Can't believe it. I'm crying in the lobby of my academic building lol. Can't wait to get the big purple envelope!

PS - Got home and the acceptance letter was in the mail. Then, a few hours later I got an email letting me know I was an AnBryce Scholarship finalist!!!

2/25 - Got the GW acceptance today via email. After waiting so long, it was kind of underwhelming after the NYU/AnBryce news yesterday lol.

3/7 - Just got the scholly notice from GW. A bit overwhelmed and trying to figure out how to bargain.

3/16 - So the "waitlist" at Columbia is a "hold." The letter says my application is still under active consideration and after reading on TLS it seems this is better than "reserve" which is their waitlist, because I'll hear back by the end of April.

It's nice not to be outright rejected :) But I have to admit - I was expecting a little more love considering the extreme love NYU is throwing my way :)

3/23 - Got the acceptance from USC in the mail on Saturday :) Now only waiting on rejections from Harvard and Yale.

Good luck

With your cycle!

Panic Stricken...
Tuesday, September 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

...I know about that. LOL. Congrats on your new LSAT score. I'm sure you will have a great cycle. Best wishes!!

Hi Anonymous - I'll make this brief, because you know nothing about me or my softs, personal life experiences, LORs, PS, DS or other addenda. If you have something hateful to say, at least sign your name to it. Further, if you would bother to read the updates, you would see just how worthless your comment is. Have a Happy New Year.

Good Luck with Berkeley
Saturday, July 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hopefully that high GPA will help you out.

Sunday, January 04 2009 at 07:00 PM

Thank you for the well wishes and same to you! I think this "waiting game" may just be the death of me...

Thursday, August 28 2008 at 08:00 PM

for berkeley!!! lov'em =]

Go Berkeley!
Sunday, December 21 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptance to Cal. Good to see another fellow activist. Can you list in more detail the political stuff you did? I'm just curious. Good luck with the rest of your cycle!

Thanks and congrats...
Tuesday, December 02 2008 at 07:00 PM

on your acceptance to Berkeley! I hope the rest of your cycle keeps going the way you've started.

Monday, January 26 2009 at 07:00 PM

I just went under review at Berkeley and had the same almost-heart-attack as you! Congrats on your acceptances!! Good luck with the rest of your cycle!

On Cornell
Friday, December 19 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats! It looks like they showed some love to several of us today! Good luck with the rest of your apps, I'm certain you'll do well.

Tuesday, August 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

hey! returning the favor on congratulating you on Cornell! I havent stopped smiling all morning. hahaha Is it your top choice? I also heard that if the Georgetown status checker has DECISION on it, you can try to check if you can log into the admitted students site... I know other people have found out that way. GOOD LUCK!!!

Just read what Anonymous wrote. Don't let that get to you at all. You're not underqualified for Cornell or any of your other acceptances, and you should be proud of your offers. Just lending some support cuz I've gotten a couple comments like that too!

Congrats to you
Friday, January 16 2009 at 07:00 PM

on Cornell, as well!! It's a wonderful feeling, no? Although, I see you have already gotten into a top 5 school. Great for you! :) I hope the acceptances keep on rolling in for you...

Sunday, May 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Cornell as well!! And on American, it's my alma mater and I love it here! And well, Berkeley is my #1 so super congrats on that! I wish you all the best in hearing back from the rest, but you don't need it either. You are going to a top school regardless!! =)

Tuesday, August 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey again, did u really go complete at Georgetown on 1/13??? Ive been complete since 1/6, and I still haven't gone to Decision!

Friday, November 16 2007 at 07:00 PM

We're basically numbers twins, Congrats on Berkeley!

Wednesday, January 28 2009 at 07:00 PM

Just want to say congrats on all your acceptances thus far. Looks like you have a very promising law career ahead of you.

Tuesday, September 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on NYU!!! That's GREAT! You'll definitely be there in the fall? My friend from school heard back last month. She'll definitely be attending.

Northwestern v WF
Tuesday, September 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'm thankful for the scholarship offer at Wake Forest, but right now I'm deciding between UMich and Northwestern, but heavily leaning towards UMich. I'm just hoping to hear back about scholarships/ financial aid soon. I really really really reaaaally hope you receive the AnBryce Scholarship. That would be GREAT, to say the least. Keep me posted. I'm living vicariously through you, lol.

Saturday, October 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

Look at you!! Congrats, congrats!

Saturday, October 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

congrats! are you definitely set on them? was just wondering b/c you also received that pretty sweet scholly from GW and an acceptance from Boalt :)

Tuesday, November 11 2008 at 07:00 PM

Have you withdrawn from Cornell yet? It's my dream school and I am waitlisted there! Maybe you could open a seat for me... Good luck!
