I only regret applying there because I'm pretty sure I can get into a better school--you too obviously--and I didn't ask for a fee waiver so I spent $94 applying to a school I don't plan on attending.
You know I really can't give a good reason as to why I didn't apply. Maybe that I liked my chances at Columbia and Chicago, and figured that I wouldn't go to NYU or NU if I was accepted into Columbia or Chicago. In all honesty, while trying to not sound like a douche bag, I think that our numbers give us a good shot at the top three...so I was extra picky with the rest. Best explanation possible. As far as Georgetown goes, I'd probably look at the other schools you're applying to and rank how bad you want to go there compared to the rest. If it's near the bottom, don't apply. Why apply to a school you're probably not going to go to? My Harvard status checker says "app under review" too, so yeah it's under review. The schools that use the electronic app seem to be way faster than the rest. How come you didn't apply to Penn?
Penn and Cornell for different areas of the country. I picked best from NYC and Chicago. Never said they were good reasons, just personal preference. ha-ha
He emails you and asks for a good timeframe where you're usually available, with me it was the week before he called. He won't give you a specific day, but he was good about getting it within the timeframe.
I think applying to Stanford is a good idea, just to increase the odds. But I really don't think the phone call is make or break for you.
My app went to "under review" really fast (app submitted 10/28, under review by 11/4), but no call or email from Toby Stock. I'm definitely nervous. Maybe this week?
I knew none of this. Well I definitely hope you get the call in the next wave. I don't see why they wouldn't! Good Luck!
thanks for the info re the harvard calls/emails. how did you know about the waves? I'm impressed! (and want to find out other such useful tidbits that you/your source might have) good luck.
Congratulations on Duke!
I got the same "complete and under review" email from Berkeley today, also after my status checker showing complete for weeks. All it did was make me nervous when checking my email. Weird.
Congrats on Berkeley :)
What is this Duke priority track I keep hearing about?
Congrats on Berkeley!!.....and......cooley?
Congrats on NYU!!
Congrats on your awesome acceptances so far! Plus or minus a few, we have similar #s. We also both went to a public school university. Like you my LSAT is not in the 99 percentile like other folks who have gotten into the top 10 schools. What were some of the extracurricular activities you highlighted to distinguish you from the others?
No idea why I got the rejection and not at least a waitlist. The deferral is more understandable at NU for someone without work experience.
Hey, get into Harvard. We need some more Bruins up here! :)
Congrats on Columbia and the Butler! I'm hoping for some word (well, almost any word) from Columbia. :)
I have no idea yet, but I think it'll be clearer as more stuff arrives (which hasn't happened yet-I haven't even heard a peep from UC Hastings). Awesomeness, you have the CCN!! Would Columbia still remain the top contender for you?
Hey I remember you from TLS You finally got in CONGRATULATIONS!!! yay =D
Seemingly redundant from the title, but CONGRATS on the one and only Harvard! I'm sure you'll do smashingly well.
Arizona State University. The Harvard of Maricopa County.....haha.
