Additional info & updates

8.31.09 - Letters and transcripts are in, PS and resume are done, & I've started UVA, Chicago, & Duke apps. Time to wait for some more fee waivers and (more importantly) get cracking on that yale 250...

9.10.09 - In at Duke! I'm going to law school!

9.29.09 - Under review at Harvard. Very excited.*

*For correct pronunciation/accent, see:

10.26.09 - Georgetown status check = Decision Rendered

10.30.09 - Georgetown acceptance letter

12.07.09 - In at NYU!

12.29.09 - Just got the call from Chicago!

1.08.10 - Harvard rejection. Well that, as they say, is that.

1.28.10 - In at Columbia!! Definitely my top choice right now...

3.09.10 - Update on aid offers: 90k from Duke, 45k from Chicago, and 62.5k from NYU (75k for public interest)! While this pushes NYU into the lead, I'm pretty annoyed that their award's acceptance deadline is 4/2/2010...Isn't that before most CLS awards even go out?

3.30.10 - So NYU finally denied my request for a deadline extension. They're forcing me to make a decision before I hear about aid from CLS. This is ridiculous.

4.01.10 - After a little pleading with each school, NYU extended my deadline to 4/7 and CLS emailed their offer to me to save time. Decision time: 62.5K vs. 30K. This will not be easy.

Chicago Fee Waiver
Friday, June 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey there, I actually took the LSAT in June 2008, so I got my Chicago fee waiver that summer. I e-mailed them a few weeks ago asking if it was still valid for this cycle, but they haven't gotten back to me yet. I'm assuming it is... Good luck with your cycle!

Tuesday, March 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

YAYY!!! congrats!!!

Tuesday, March 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

Friday, October 16 2009 at 08:00 PM

Thanks. Good luck at Harvard (and all the other schools, too, of course)! Also, what IS babaghanouj?

Friday, October 16 2009 at 08:00 PM

Well, that's embarrassing. I JUST saw your post where you replied right there.

Friday, October 16 2009 at 08:00 PM

I hope we won't be able to (because you'll be at Harvard)! BUT... if you do end up at CLS, then sure. I've heard that NYC has amazing restaurants/food, so I want to try lots of dishes.

Tuesday, March 24 2009 at 08:00 PM

To you too, well done on your cycle thus far and good luck with the rest!!!

Friday, October 16 2009 at 08:00 PM

so after you get into cls, where're you going to decide to go?

thank you!
Friday, May 29 2009 at 08:00 PM

Friday, May 29 2009 at 08:00 PM

and chicago! didn't see that at first. you leaning one way or another?

Thursday, September 25 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats!! When did you go complete?

Monday, October 19 2009 at 08:00 PM

congrats on CLS!! jr was stupid to pass you up, but it's their loss- columbia is going to be great and you'll do great things :)

Monday, October 19 2009 at 08:00 PM

no prob, i was rooting for you because we have so much in common interests-wise. :D i'm really torn between mich and hls - they're both letting me defer, they're both awesome, etc haha. guess i'll have to see after i visit. i wont be at the CLS asw unfortunately :( i have an honors seminar on thursdays that im already missing once to go see mich, and it seems sort of pointless to only go for one day. i'll be up there the last weekend in february though- i'll scope it out for ya hahaha

Friday, October 16 2009 at 08:00 PM

Good job H, proud of you! Im glad to say Ive had baba ghanouj with you, although Im really in the mood for some kanafe!

Thursday, January 07 2010 at 07:00 PM

how did you find out about this? i am hoping for some, and wondering if it is a bad sign tha ti havent heard yet....

Monday, October 19 2009 at 08:00 PM

wait, you're a dude? did your LSN always say male? wow, i feel dumb...definitely thought you were a girl :P sorryyy. anyway, NYU SUCKS. i might have seriously considered going there, but not after these shenanigans.
