I am sad... sad and very, very scared.

12/27 In at Gtown! Thank you Mr. Aleinikoff and Mr. Cornblatt for a truly Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

1/29 Dinged by Stanford. Expected, I guess.

2/10 Dinged by Penn. I don't even want to update my profile anymore. Seriously, was my application that horrible?? No WL??

Also, a hold from NU.

2/19 Waitlist at Berkeley (Faculty Committee Review)
Notified via e-mail.

2/21 Yale rejection letter.
Hold at Columbia. No ding, sweet?

2/23 Chicago. OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!

2/24 Complete at UCLA. After almost 3 months. Wow.

3/21 In at NYU. I cannot believe this... after 3.5 months of silence. This is my number 1. I am sooooooooooo lucky!

3/26 Rejected from Michigan. Weird, weird, weird cycle...
(No Why Mich, for those curious)

4/10 In at USC. Still no word from UCLA

4/10 Reserve at CLS. Eh...

4/17 Chicago $ on appeal. Received during NYU'S ASW. Completely turned everything around.

4/23 No $ from NYU

4/26 UCLA wait-list. LOL. You guys suck!!!

4/27 Wait-list at NU. Whatever. Withdrawing.

5/1 Placed in the first Quartile of the Berkeley waiting list. Irrelevant, but feels gooooooood!

Cycle over. Going to Chicago! WOO-HOO!

See you in the fall, classmates :-)

6/17 In at Berkeley
8/24 Released from the Columbia waiting list
I'm actually kind of happy this happened because it minimizes my potential "I could've done this other thing" regrets in the future :)

Hi! Thanks for your message, I'm sure you'll have a wonderful cycle as well. A TS1 is an initial interview with Toby Stock, the dean of admissions at Harvard. If you get an email about an interview, that's generally a very good sign. I'm not sure what the actual numbers are, but I think well over half of the people interviewed are offered admission. A TS2 is the second call from Toby Stock in which he tells you you're in. Good luck, hopefully you'll be hearing from TS soon!

Friday, February 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

No idea yet. I hope to have a better idea by April though!!! :) Good luck with your cycle.

Tuesday, August 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

No actually, I took a Powerscore course in the Bay Area. I had an amazing teacher, really knew her stuff. Did you like the testmasters class?

Monday, November 03 2008 at 07:00 PM

Yale baby! I'll probably just go down the U.S. News rankings, ha. Good times. Did you get Duke Priority Track? By what I've been observing, it seems as if that's a guaranteed acceptance.

Hey!
Friday, October 24 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the comment. Veritas is a great motto!

Thursday, December 04 2008 at 07:00 PM

congrats on getting your apps in :) our numbers are really close - i'll be cheering for you! good luck :)

hey
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

thanks! i appreciate it - i'm sure you will be getting lots of good news soon.

Tuesday, October 28 2008 at 08:00 PM

Not at all. I applied to be an academic scholar at the institute for int'l law and justice. Not sure how competitive these scholarships are, or even what I would do in the unlikely event that I got it. Anyway, good luck on your cycle.

Sorry for the mess on your board, just wanted to tell you-- molodchina i udachi s garvardom. Otlichnye ocenki

Thanks

Sublime IS awesome! Good luck on your cycle dood!

Monday, November 10 2008 at 07:00 PM

esli garvard ne primet there's always hofstra :)

Monday, November 10 2008 at 07:00 PM

Don't even worry about it. You'll get there

Next Cycle
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the congrats on the score! I'm in for next cycle because my stupid school won't let me graduate in April, so I have to wait.

Tuesday, October 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

Any of them would be great. What about you?

Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'm not actually Russian, but I lived there for a while. Good luck with the rest of the cycle!

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Don't be too worried about Duke...They pretty much got back to me on the last day.

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Oh no! Well, you've got great numbers, so I wouldn't let it get you down. You'll probably get in some place better than Duke anyway.

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

No, I didn't write a why Duke, but I wrote a diversity essay. I also applied really early, like around the beginning of October. It looks like they started waitlisting a lot of people recently, but I really couldn't say for sure what it is. Some places just make weird choices.

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

If you want scary, here's something: I checked my LSAC account randomly today and realized that they had the wrong GPA on file for about 2 months (about 0.1 lower than it actually is). Luckily I got them to fix it, but it's a miracle I even found it.

Monday, November 03 2008 at 07:00 PM

Yikes, that is indeed scary Well, did you write the Why Duke essay? If not, then don't fret, you'll definitely get into some top law schools that don't ask such damn questions.

don't worry
Friday, September 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

about duke, prolly yp

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

on Georgetown.

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

No idea yet. I'd love to go to Michigan or Virginia, but they haven't gotten back to me yet. You?

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Well, if NYU isn't happening for you, then it certainly isn't happening for me...

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

That may be true, but it looks like TylerDoom's app was too much for Bill Hoye to handle :)

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thanks a lot! Are you visiting Georgetown at any point? I went this week and was pretty blown away.

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

It just seemed like they have everything. The student body is huge, so they have the most clinics and most classes. Then they are in DC, so you can hear lawyers practice their cases for the Supreme Court at the school. Then they have their own public interest office. Additionally, everyone was really excited to be there, and I was surprised how many of them had turned down higher ranked schools (NYU, Boalt, Michigan, Virginia) to go there. Basically, they set a really high bar for other schools to meet.

Monday, November 03 2008 at 07:00 PM

oh word. late response, but congratulations on georgetown! i'm very excited about that school as well

Thursday, December 04 2008 at 07:00 PM

hey tyler, thanks for the post - I'm really excited by the way the cycle's going. As of now, I've decided to definitely go east coast to make long distance shorter with my SO (he had the choice between Boston and San Diego, and we decided there was a better chance for us to be able to be together if he chose Boston). So, right now I'm leaning towards Penn, but waiting to hear from NYU. I doubt Columbia or HLS could happen with my gpa, but I'm still crossing my fingers!!

Tuesday, October 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

Some may say EX luck, I say EX badassness :). Any word on Harvard?

don't get bummed out
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

seriously, gtown is a great school and you're already in there. UCLA is a lock and it looks like you'd be happy there too. plus, you gotta plenty of schools yet to hear back from. the good news will be coming soon, no doubt.

Don't worry about Penn
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Penn is really weird about how they admit people...the places that are waitlisting and rejecting you right now are definitely yield protecting, and most other places don't do that, so sit tight :)

Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey, Congrats on G'town! I'm waiting to hear from them still. I noticed that we are both on the WL (priority reserve?) at Duke. Any idea what the chances are of actually getting in off the WL? If so, any clue as to when we would be hearing back from them? Thanks, and good luck on the rest of your cycle!!!

Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

Haha, probably not... I guess it's just a pride thing :).

Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

Good luck to you too! I know that with your numbers you're going to have some awesome choices!

Wednesday, August 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

you pimp!

Chicago
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats :)

HEY
Friday, September 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

OMG, congrats on Georgetown and U of C. That U of C acceptance was probably a huge wait off of your shoulders. I'm sooo happy for you :). I'll probably be at NYU this fall, unless something strange happens with HYS. Here's to hoping you can join me!

i just realized
Friday, September 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

i spelled "weight" ... wait *sigh* i've been staring at my computer screen for too long

this week!
Friday, January 23 2009 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Chicago - here's to hoping for a big week this week!!!

thanks!
Thursday, October 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

and congratulations on chicago yourself, mr. doom! i'd say i'm about 89% sure about uva.

Friday, January 23 2009 at 07:00 PM

hahahaha i just read your 2/23 Chicago update in the additional info box and it had me laughing...thanks for the SC congrats, here's hoping for more mail!

omg!
Thursday, October 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

rg!! :)

Thanks!
Monday, January 28 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! Congrats on Chicago, that's really awesome!

Friday, January 23 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey! I submitted maybe mid-late December, and I heard back maybe 2 weeks ago. Big on USC, eh?

:)
Friday, September 19 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'll see you in the city.

I TOLD YOU
Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

lol - yeah, thanks - in all honesty, I think it is Michigan or UVA for no matter what Chi says. congrats again on NYU, that is awesome.

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on NYU!!! I didn't see until now because I was at Mich and Duke. Mich was pretty amazing, so I think I'll probably end up there.

Michigan
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, Michigan just seemed like a really strong community. The downside was that most people (like, 70%) had work experience, so it was harder to relate to people, but that also made them more interesting. The other downside is the location in a really cold, somewhat isolated part of the country, but that only seemed to build the strength of the community (both among students and faculty) further.

hey
Wednesday, January 09 2008 at 07:00 PM

i noticed that you too are having to wait a long time to hear from those trojans...i am starting to think im getting rejected or waitlisted...and i am not happy about it

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

I envy your UChicago acceptance...You can just tell them that you are giving it to me :) Michigan is really weird about how it admits people...I think they put a lot of emphasis on the "Why Michigan?" essay.

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

And yeah, Ann Arbor is nice. There's a lot packed into a relatively small downtown area, and it is very close to the law school. The rest of Michigan kind of sucks, but I never have to go there so I'm fine with that.

Congrats!
Thursday, March 19 2009 at 08:00 PM

Wow! NYU!! Well done!:)

you too...
Wednesday, January 09 2008 at 07:00 PM

wow with nyu and chicago...congrats!

Friday, January 23 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey! Nice job on NYU!

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

So how's the choice coming? Are you set on NYU? I wish NYU would just waitlist me already, I've been waiting forever. Same with Harvard and the impending rejection.

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, I hope so. Some people were rejected with a 170, 3.7, though, so that doesn't look good for me. I've been complete for 5 months, though, so if they were going to outright reject me, they should have done it by now. 171 seems to be the magic number for NYU, so I'm probably a waitlist :(

I'm such a nerd
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

I just had a dream that I was taking a tour of NYU.

poo
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

waitlist at NYU

Thursday, October 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

congrats on nyu!! are you headed to new york?

Thursday, October 23 2008 at 08:00 PM

barring some waitlist miracle, i will be in charlottesville. chicago is a great city! it was the school that came closest to making me reconsider uva.

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hey, have you decided on a school yet? As much as I loved Michigan, I ended up sending my deposit to UVA.

Friday, January 23 2009 at 07:00 PM

Chicago!

Bullshit!!
Tuesday, October 28 2008 at 08:00 PM

I withdrew specifically so they couldnt reject me...i feel so cheated. btw u still gonna check lsn even when you're a lawyer? u love this shit.

ata
Friday, January 23 2009 at 07:00 PM

You know, our numbers weren't that much different but we had pretty different (but both good) cycles!

Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Eh, I guess I'm hoping, but I don't think it will happen.

Columbia
Thursday, November 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

You don't need to hope, you've got Chicago! I guess I don't to some extent either...Columbia and UVA command really separate markets.

Chicago
Monday, November 03 2008 at 07:00 PM

nah screw Boalt Chicago is where all the hot law school women are at i don't know how "professional" you want to keep this profile, so i kept the cursing to a bare minimum. that's how considerate i am
