Wow
Monday, February 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

Wow- I'm jealous. Congratulations on all the acceptances.

Thanks
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

for the congrats.

Are you gay?
Friday, November 04 2005 at 07:00 PM

Or are we supposed to know the difference between "cream" and "beige" now without asking our girlfriends? Anyway, congrats on your acceptances.

congrats!
Sunday, September 18 2005 at 08:00 PM

we're almost twins- you've had an amazing cycle. any idea where you'd like to go? you've kind of got options everywhere..east coast, west coast, midwest. good luck making your decision!

Thanks for the congrats. Congrats yourself. I have no idea where I'm going. The idea of going to school and not having to pay for it is pretty good though.

damn.
Sunday, November 13 2005 at 07:00 PM

looks like you've got some pretty f-ing amazing options. congrats.

fellow applicant
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

sure. i'd say that i'm a pretty unusual law school applicant based on work experience. i promise to post complete details when i hear back from harvard.

Withdraw?
Wednesday, September 07 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Harvard!!!! With such great acceptances in the bag are you considering withdrawing anytime soon?

withdraw
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

i'm considering it. i think it's a pretty bad idea to withdraw before hearing anything about financial aid though.

Sunday, December 04 2005 at 07:00 PM

i saw the amount that northwestern offered you (wigmore). did you send in your financial aid/fafsa forms to them before they awarded you the scholarship? i didn't send them my stuff (yet), but they gave me the money, so i'm just making sure that they didn't make a mistake and are going to recant their generous offer...

northwestern
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

yeah, i got the offer before i sent in my stuff. don't think it's a mistake.

hey dooood
Thursday, September 22 2005 at 08:00 PM

congrats on harvard! Did you get a phone call interview before you were admitted or just deferral->admit?

thanks
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

thanks everyone. i got the hold letter, then got the call email, the interveiw call, and then the acceptance call.

cONGRATULATIONS!
