Additional info & updates

Looking to specialize in health law and/or get a joint MPH. UMD and GW are my top two choices, so here's hoping I go two for two.

2/1/2007: Fordham sent me this ridiculous letter that said they were still reviewing my application, but they loved me and they'd have a decision by March 1st. Then they went on to say that if I was still really interested, I needed to send in a form. What's that all about? Did anyone else get a letter?

2/6/2007: Way to be on top of things BU! I sent the ap in three months ago and I got a complete postcard in the mail yesterday.

2/27/2007: Called GW because, well, I'm damn curious. They said I was being reviewed by the committee as we spoke and that I should hear in 1-2 weeks. Way to amp up the anxiety!

3/6/2007: Waitlisted at GW. Kind of disappointed because it was a top choice and I applied to both PT and FT programs. The letter said that they'd overenrolled last year and were expecting to take a "significant number" of waitlisted candidates in April, May and June. So, I'm choosing to look at this as a "deferred until the 170s we admitted in January tell us they're going to Georgetown or UPenn". And, of course, I will now scramble to send extra stuff to the admin office. Grrrr.

3/6/07: Feeling a little better. Found out they only considered me for the FT program. This means that I have a very good shot at the PT program and am still being considered for FT. At least I hope that is what this means:).

3/8/07: Decisions have been made at BU and Cornell, but, of course, can't see those for another week or so. It's great how the admissions process ends with a final bang of anticipation. My thoughts are I get waitlisted at BU and Fordham and rejected at Cornell. Which is great, because right now I'm feeling like another two to four months of this process is just what I need. I mean, what would I do with myself if I knew what my life was going to be like in three months? How boring!

3/8/07: Cornell didn't take that long! They went to decision and I received my snail mail rejection the same day, so me thinks they changed the status a bit late. I'm not at all surprised or upset. I applied because my grandparents live in Ithaca and really wanted me to do so, but I would have gone to UMD over Cornell. Cornell just has absolutely no health law program and is so far away, geographically, from where I want to live and practice. SOOO it's just one more step toward the end of the cycle:).

3/19/07: Just sent a LOCI to GW...hopefully it will help out. I'll send another rec in a week or so and visit as well. Also posted chiashu numbers (b/c things are very slow at work)...chiashu does not seem to like me much. Let's hope the law schools that have waitlisted me like to defy the odds.

3/22/07: Waitlisted at BU on Thursday. So far my predictions are 6 for 6. Still waiting on Fordham...would be nice to have one more acceptance, but I'm not holding my breath. Withdrew from BU right away...I'm just not that into them:).

3/30/07: Wow, cycle done...kinda. 7 schools applied to...into two, rejected at one and waitlisted AT FOUR SCHOOLS! ugh. I think I'll withdraw from Fordham as I have no intention of going there. GW and G'town will stay on for a while though. Also, went to a reception for UMD yesterday, and I'm 89% in aid would clinch it for me. The Dean spoke and was just incredibly inspiring and really sold the school. They also moved up 6 spots in the rankings for 2008. I am very confident that I will be able to be health care policy lawyer extraordinaire if I head up to B-more for three YAY!

4/2/07: And then there were three. Good luck to all the Fordham and American waitlisters out there!

I received the same letter. I assume it's their deferral.

Wednesday, January 24 2007 at 07:00 PM

Huh...I didn't apply early action. They still promised me a decision by March 1st, so whatever the letter was, it matters not!

Congrats on Maryland!

advice on GW
Sunday, October 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

The advice given to me by a GW Law alum was to go visit and meet the dean of admissions and submit additional letters of rec. One thing to consider is that if you are waitlisted, you are given the option of applying for the night program simultaneously. I know it's not ideal, but you can switch to full day-time as early as your second term. If GW is your top choice or perhaps just your best option, this is a way to at least get in the door. As for me, I'm leaning towards being in Seattle or NY, but I still plan on submitting additional letters and seeing where the chips fall.

Just curious, how'd you hear you were complete at BU?

re: thanks
Saturday, November 11 2006 at 07:00 PM

I decided not to wait for the other schools, because I had them ranked near the bottom of my choices. You have got some great schools left to hear from. Good luck!

Thursday, November 23 2006 at 07:00 PM

Yea I'm already writing a letter at work right now...and trying to think of what else I could send without being too obnoxious..we'll see..good luck to you too!

re: thanks
Saturday, November 11 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for posting. I see exactly what you mean. You really can't be sure until GW and G-T let you know whether you will get off the WL. I hope you get some good news from one of them!

I have an interview with the scholarship committee next month

Sunday, December 10 2006 at 07:00 PM

Glad to know someone else is in the same boat as me! If none of my other pending apps come through, I'll have to decide between BU and BC. Any advice? I see you didn't apply to BC, any specific reason?

Wednesday, August 30 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the support, my friend went on my name and changed my stats, which I think explains the second comment. Good luck with everything i hope georgetown works out

Tuesday, June 27 2006 at 08:00 PM

Close #s !! I got smacked at Georgetown , GW and Fordham..waited at American. Keeping my fingers crossed with BU. But rejections keep comin. I think I may have applied to late!

Tuesday, June 27 2006 at 08:00 PM

I applied mid January.. maybe a bit to late. I have pondered the year off thing.. buy it wasn't really part of the plan. I have to start re-grouping.

Thursday, December 21 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey there :) I was also just recently waitlisted at BU (after also being waitlisted at Emory). I have very similar numbers as you. I'm just curious what you are sending your waitlist schools. I graduated last year, so I don't have any updated transcripts. I do plan to send a letter of continued interest but don't know much about what they are supposed to say exactly... Just curious what else you are sending. I know an extra rec letter is an option, but that was such a hassle getting the original ones that I'm thinking maybe that's not the best route for me. Thanks! and good luck with the others!

I don't know
Sunday, February 25 2007 at 07:00 PM

Not sure yet... would really love to go to BU. I am still pending there. W&M would be good too. We share about the same #S and I got smacked at Fordham and GW. The system is so random sometimes.
