All T-14 other than HYSB (they never give merit fee waivers), UPenn and NYU. Not intending on applying to Cornell, UVA or GULC. Also received fee waivers from UCLA, Texas and Vandy.
10/21/08 - Applied to Yale, Harvard, Columbia, Berkeley. Intend to apply to NYU and Duke tomorrow.
10/22/08 - Applied to NYU.
Emailed Georgetown, Chicago and Michigan for fee waivers. Flatly denied at Chicago. This drastically lowers the chance that I'll apply to Chicago this time around.
Received emails from Harvard and Columbia stating that my application had been received.
10/25/08 - Applied to Duke. Didn't submit optional Why Duke essay.
Received a nice email from Michigan stating they would waive my app fee. Same with GULC.
10/27/08 - Fee waiver for NW. I will probably wait on submitting Michigan and NU applications so I can write the optional Why Mich/Why NU essays this time. Debating whether to apply to GULC.
11/03/08 - Fee waiver from Chicago came in today. Finally! Applied same day. No email from Toby Stock yet :-(.
11/06/08 - "Application Complete" from HLS today. Still no Toby Stock email. I guess my goose is cooked.
11/08/08 - Duke acceptance by email! I guess I'm going to law school. Duke's priority track did wonders for my mental sanity.
11/21/08 - No word from anyone else yet. I've given up hope on Harvard. I wish I knew why Toby didn't like me. :-(
11/24/08 - Received a complete and "under review" email from Berkeley today. Odd since the status checker shows me complete as of 11/05. Also received a mailing from Stanford. They probably just want my application fee, but seeing as I'm 99.9% not getting into Harvard, it's worth a shot. I've also received several mailings from UPenn, but they have yet to waive my fee. :-(
12/02/08 - Admitted to Berkeley - Received call from Dean Tom at 3:55 PM (CST).
12/22/08 - In at NYU. My NU interviewer totally flaked out and never got back to me, so instead of hounding her I've simply decided not to apply, fee waiver or not. And I guess applying to Michigan is kind of pointless now.
1/20/09 - TS1. Meh. 5 minutes, sounded bored and rushed.
01/26/09 - Good news after a long hiatus. In at Columbia with Butler (half tuition!)
01/30/09 - In at UChicago via phone call! Clean sweep at CCN! W00tage. What about HYS? :-(
02/03/09 - No KB2 for me. I guess TS didn't like me after all. Oh well, Butler is a pretty good option.
2/12/09 - Chicago Scholly offer via mail $42K.
3/25 - Very disappointed NYU Scholly offer of $25K total (over 3 years).
4/3 - IN AT HARVARD!!! Voicemail from Karen Buttenbaum.
4/8 - Withdrew from Duke, NYU, UChicago and Berkeley. It's down to CLS and HLS now (unless I get into Stanford). Fingers crossed for big money from HLS :-(
4/23 - Withdrew from CLS. W00t W00t Cambridge!
