-03/23/11: Received around $28,000/year of need-based grants from Georgetown -- no word of a merit-scholarship though.
-03/24/11: $35K/year from GULC, this is game-changing.
-03/25/11: Received a measly 15,000/year via snailmail from my alma mater just a day after i got 35,000/year from GULC -- I think I will be withdrawing soon, hope this helps anyone waiting to hear from USC!
-03/28/11: $45,000 from Cornell. Nothing compared to the $105,000 that GULC gave me. I guess it's time to negotiate!
-03/29/11: In at Penn Law via phone call!
-03/29/11: Withdrew from W&M and WUSTL.
-04/02/11: Received giant package from Penn!
-04/07/11: After negotiating with GULC's $105,000 package, Cornell increased their aid from $45,000 to $60,000. This still will probably not be enough to sway me over GULC or Penn. I will most likely withdraw soon.
-04/08/11: Why no Penn finaid yet? I'm getting very anxious especially since Penn is my first choice.
-04/13/11: Got my finaid package from Penn, over $50,000 -- I think this seals the deal for me.

-04/14/11: Bye bye Illinois!
-04/14/11: Waitlist from Columbia -- this was expected.
-04/15/11: Just withdrew from my undergrad alma mater. Good luck to all future fellow Trojans!
-04/15/11: As much as I loved the idea of attending Cornell, $60,000 simply wasn't enough for me considering my other options. This was my hardest withdrawal so far!
-04/18/11: Where is my purple envelope from NYU? I want it!
-04/18/11: Just got my purple envelope -- will be withdrawing soon I think.
-04/18/11: Withdrew from Georgetown -- it was really hard considering how much $$$ they gave me, but I think I'm set for Penn now.
04/18/11: Also, I sent in my seat deposit for Penn.
04/19/11: Bye bye UVA!!!
