so my cycle appears to pretty much be over and i am excited to say that i think ill be in NC in the fall! here are some details i left out...

USC, UVA, UCLA, and UMich all got target rec. letters. i knew UVA and UMich would be tough and luckily, i have a great prof who wrote me individualized letters based on each schools programs and my interests (too bad it didn't really look like it helped all that much but i'm still appreciative)

No 'Why Duke' essay

Wrote one of the optional Mich essays

I go to a really small, state school with literally no prestige so i do not think my gpa was as helpful as it could have been and i made sure to take a test prep class because i knew my lsat would be weighted a ton in my situation

my final decision is ultimately between duke and usd, i am leaning towards duke because its a great school and it just seems like a good fit for me...

i am super sad i did not crack the top ten :(

its ucla in the end! who could say no to 10K a year on top of my Cali res. tuition discount?

called me, or at least tried to. i'm abroad so i ended up just emailing the dean of admissions and he wrote me back saying i'd been admitted. i'm assuming the packet's coming a bit later..

Thursday, November 06 2008 at 07:00 PM

We are number twins - and similar application and submission times too! Should be hearing from Duke and Georgetown soon. Good luck!

Thanks
Sunday, October 26 2008 at 08:00 PM

I have no doubt you'll hear soon enough - best of luck!

Wednesday, August 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

yeah that is the same for me. Chapmans status checker hasnt been updated in weeks either, so I guess both schools are just rather slow. Good luck, I'm sure you will have a very successful cycle!

Thursday, November 06 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! Have you gone complete there yet? I expect you will be hearing soon. Good luck! Do you feel like everyone else is hearing from Georgetown? I do. haha

Thank you!
Sunday, June 29 2008 at 08:00 PM

And good luck with your cycle. Looks like you'll have some great schools to choose from.

Good Luck
Wednesday, August 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

You're going to get into some absolutely amazing schools. Your numbers are fantastic. I'm honestly surprised you haven't gotten any admits yet. :)

GULC!
Thursday, November 06 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats to you! It feels great to get in and to an awesome school no less! I'm sure there are many more to come.

Saturday, June 28 2008 at 08:00 PM

thanks! i got a large envelope from scu via snail mail today... im crossing my fingers for georgetown, and i'm sure you'll be hearing from santa clara soon!!

Congrats
Sunday, June 29 2008 at 08:00 PM

On your two acceptances so far! I'm sure there are plenty more on the way.

Congrats on Duke and Gtown, I'm sure they're the first of many

Sunday, August 17 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks and congrats on your acceptances! Your Add'l Info section is very detailed. That is so helpful; thanks! It took forever to get my MI status check email, too. Good luck on the rest of your cycle!

Wednesday, April 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thanks. I'm sure you'll get in soon. You've got great numbers.

Thanks!
Monday, July 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Duke and G-town! I'm sure you'll be hearing some good news from Michigan in the near future...

Thanks!!
Monday, October 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on all the good news so far. I hope more comes soon!

good luck!
Wednesday, November 12 2008 at 07:00 PM

Good luck to another 169-er! And congrats on Georgetown and Duke! I saw you're applying to Santa Clara - I really wanted to apply there, but I decided that 15 applications was way too many as it was :)

Sunday, July 06 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations as well! Looking at your numbers I think you're going to have your pick of the CA schools you applied to.

Thursday, November 06 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! You seem to be having a great cycle so far. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw the Cali number on my phone. haha. Good luck, as I've said before, I'm sure there are many more acceptances coming your way.

Thursday, September 04 2008 at 08:00 PM

i decided not to; PM if you want the rationale - good luck with the rest of your cycle.

Sunday, August 17 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks and congrats on your great cycle so far! You have some great options already and more should be coming.

USD scholarship requirement
Monday, June 02 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'm sure there is a minimum GPA requirement to maintain the scholarship and stipend but it isn't directly addressed in the award letter. I can probably find out what it is if I go to their financial aid website but I'm not too concerned as I'll likely be going elsewhere.

Thursday, October 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

I found out about the Dean's Scholarship via mail

Re: USC
Sunday, June 29 2008 at 08:00 PM

Yep. I've pretty much given up on them at this point. They're taking too long and I need to start figuring out where I want to go. Any front-runners for you yet?

Sunday, June 29 2008 at 08:00 PM

Duke would be great. Sounds like you enjoyed your time there too. I've narrowed my options to UC Davis, Arizona and UNLV. I'm in the process of visiting all 3, so I'm hoping I'll get a better feel for where I'd like to go. At this point, I'm pretty much trying to decide if Davis or Arizona is worth $85-$90k in debt, or if I want to take the full-ride offer at UNLV.

Thanks!
Wednesday, May 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

You have some great choices as well! Will you be at Duke this weekend for ASW?

Yup!
Wednesday, May 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

I'll be driving up to Duke tomorrow. I'll definitely let you know how it goes! Do you have any specific questions or anything you want me to ask for you?

Saturday, December 13 2008 at 07:00 PM

You're not doing too bad, yourself!

yeah!
Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

they suck!!! 'grats on your other cool acceptances though

Friday, January 23 2009 at 07:00 PM

And I quote, "I go to a really small, state school with literally no prestige so i do not think my gpa was as helpful as it could have been...i knew my lsat would be weighted a ton in my situation" Me too!!!

you know...
Monday, December 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

Duke is now top 10! SOOOO, you did crack it! Congrats on your awesome cycle and UCLA $

Friday, January 23 2009 at 07:00 PM

we really need to rep our undergrad school
