Additional info & updates

Based on numbers alone, I don't quite meet the standards for a bunch of the schools I applied to. But I'm holding out hope that the admissions committees see more in me than my numbers...

1/29 - Saw online that I've gone complete at Georgetown and GW, and got an email saying I'm under review at Berkeley! Ack! I'm so nervous!!

1/30 - Complete at Penn and Hastings...

2/3 - Complete at UVA (super quick turnaround time!), status checker says under review at Harvard

2/5 - Complete at Columbia

2/9 - Getting antsy. No word from anyone for what seems like forever (but in fact 4 days). I need to chill out. EDIT: I just got the dreaded Berkeley Faculty Admissions Committee email - looks like I won't know anything until on or around March 20th. God I hope they let me in...

2/11 - Complete at BU

2/12 - Complete at Harvard

2/17 - In at Hastings!! My first acceptance - feels good :)

2/25 - In at GW!! Yessss I hope this trend continues...

3/5 - OH SHIT - Merit scholarship at GW - $104,935. Well, this sure makes things a bit more interesting :)

3/16 - Waitlisted at UVA. Not really upset, since UVA was never a huge contender for me.

3/19 - Rejected at Berkeley. Fuck. But in at Georgetown! At least i got some good news today.

4/1 - Updates: $10k/year at Hastings, visited (and was really impressed with) GULC, met with the Dean, and just got a scholarship letter today! Looks like my mind's pretty much made up now :)

Your LSAT is spectacular and that Ivy GPA will definitely help out :) You'll definitely get into many if not most of the schools you applied to. Thanks for the congrats and I hope we both get a chance to obsess over Admitted Students Weekend at Berkeley :)
