Additional info & updates

Stanford requested law school report 10-18-05. I got complete notice on 11-07-05.
Note: UT Early Decision is not binding
Changed Harvard completion date to the day I received the email since it is drastically different from the day they requested my report (10-05-05).

Cornell came in a manilla envelope; letter was dated 12-01-05.
Upenn and NYU came in the mail in thick envelopes.
University of Chicago acceptance came by a phone call from the dean.

01/20/05- hold letter from Harvard.
02-01-06--- Applied to Yale.........I figured I had nothing to lose.
02-07-06- Sent Harvard hold updates.....we'll see what happens next.
02-15-06- Got email about Harvard call.
02-20-06- Got Harvard call.
2-27-06- Got the Harvard acceptance call!!!!
03-15-05 Got the Stanford acceptance call!!
03-20-06 I got Columbia interview; they were uncertain that I wanted to go to their school because in my application I accidentally said : "and that is why I want to go to ________ Law School" The lady said that she realized everyone does it; but I got caught, so they held my application for 6 months!!
03-22-06 Got Columbia "hold" letter
03-24-06 Withdrew from Columbia (I wasn't going anywayz.....especially not after the horrible "we would like to let you know we caught your mistake" call)
I knew I shouldn't have applied to Yale......they ruined my sweep!

Are you as convinced as I am
Saturday, September 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

that you're going to sweep this cycle? Let's see, you've got a good GPA, a strong LSAT score, URM status and you're complete everywhere earlier than early. If you don't sweep, then there's no hope for any of us.

Applying Early
Friday, October 07 2005 at 08:00 PM

I got complete by applying early. Basically, my complete status means that the school has requested my report and/or has contacted me and said that my application was complete. Every school listed has requested my report, and most schools have personally contacted me and told me that my application was complete. I was done applying to all schools mostly before October with the exception of Cornell. Most of the time, if I had the option of typing my application on the computer in a writable PDF and mailing it, I did that. I'm not sure I like that fact that it takes the LSAC 7-10days to send a paper copy of my application. Some schools, like Stanford don't consider you complete until they get that paper copy. I also opted for using an electronic application on the school's website instead of LSAC. I figure they'll be able to get it and print it faster. adora.

Fee Waivers
Saturday, July 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Did you get any fee waivers? All in all, you're def. going to get iato at least some, if not most of those schools.

Good luck
Tuesday, August 30 2005 at 08:00 PM

Early submissions = good idea. Hope all goes well!

Notification
Friday, October 07 2005 at 08:00 PM

I was notified by mail. There were about 4 pages in the envelope with instructions on how to secure my spot in the class of 2009.

Congrats

Great Job on Stanford.... also if you are not considering any of the schools you have been accepted to can you withdraw please.. I am on hold at a Columbia and still waiting on Stanford so if you know you are not going there can you please withdraw.. I know it probably will not change it completely for me but if a few people do it maybe it could help.. or at least help someone.. thanks once again great job..
