thought i'd say hi and good luck, we've got similar #z and schools so hope all goes well.

Hi
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

You are right, we have very similar numbers and schools we are interested in. Hope I get a quick Duke acceptance like you so I can have peace of mind :)... one comment though, why Yankees?

Yankees
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Aha I understand. I'm a big Mets fan, and I happen to be a Yankee hater (dont see too many Mets fans that root for Yankees, though Yankee fans often root for the Mets). Otherwise, I root for all NY sports teams, other than the Yanks :)

Duke
Saturday, June 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

Did Duke give you any money?

I agree
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

I am not applying to either GW, Fordham or the Boston schools (either of them) without a fee waiver. I sent all four of them an email to try and solicit a fee waiver from them. But yes, without a fee waiver I wont apply to them unless Duke, Cornell and Columbia reply with a negative answer in December.

Congrats!

On Duke!

Good luck!
Sunday, October 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Good luck to you... very similar #'s & schools... will be watching closely!

Thank you
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thank you for the Duke congrats. The pressure is off both of us. Worst case scenario we're at Duke next year :)

Duke Acceptance package?
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

My Duke acceptance package has yet to arrive although they told me they were sending it shortly a week and a half ago on their acceptance email. Have you received yours yet? If so, any fantastic goodies inside? (Like a Blue Devils shirt or something) Let me know!

thanks!
Sunday, September 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

btw, we're practically the same applicant...watchlist for sure!

hi!
Monday, June 11 2007 at 08:00 PM

good luck this cycle. what's your actual first choice?

Michigan Dreaming
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

I am also hoping for Michigan next!

Hi
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

It's kinda funny, I mean who knew being nice could piss so many people off? ;)

Congratulations
Thursday, October 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Vanderbilt and Duke - I bet more good news for you is on its way!

WHY!!!
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Why must Michigan keep us waiting? I cant take doing even one more status check...

Congratulations
Thursday, November 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Cornell! I'm dying to hear back from them!

Congratulations
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

On all of today's great news... of course including Cornell. I think there's a high likelihood we end up at the same law school... still upset about your support of the Evil Empire Yankees though :)

Cornell
Thursday, October 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Cornell! I didn't apply there because I'll be part of a two body move and the other body ruled out living in Ithaca.

Columbia...
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Eh, deferral there didnt sting that much. I mean I know I'm not gonna make it in now, but at least my application was worthy enough not to be thrown in the trash right away. So yea lol, live and let live. Hope we hear from Michigan soon, and I get Cornell news like you... :)

Columbia...

Don't worry about them yet my number twin... so far we've had the same fate in every school, and I have a feeling we're both going to be in at the Big House!

Congrats
Saturday, September 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

well that congrats will have to go right back to you! Vandy Cornell, AND Duke? Thats a pretty damn good start/omen if you ask me!!

Michigan
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

I don't know what is going on there. One of my LORs was from a Michigan Law alum even. Hopefully we'll both know soon! :)

UVA

Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

It seems you have overtaken me in the top 50 rankings my friend. Congratulations (not showing sore loser attitude)

Hooray!
Saturday, January 05 2008 at 07:00 PM

Excellent cycle for certainly excellent numbers. I saw you on TLS, so I'm adding you to my list (this is not my TLS username though)

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

On Michigan!

Congrats!
