mwuahaha. i found you. i should be a spy.
Good luck on your apps. That's awesome you were deferred at NU. That's my first choice, but I didn't get my app in until late and don't have as good of an LSAT score. Anyway, I just noticed we applied to some of the same schools.
Thanks man, my phone call with Dean Richard was a little awkward but she is a very nice lady, and I would be happy to go to GW if it comes down to that. In other news, I live in Skokie when I'm not at school...skevanston pride baby
thanks! and the same to you. I would love to go to mich - do you have a set first choice?
congrats to you on GW too. looks like we both hit the jackpot today. i'm leaning towards GW because of better placement in the markets that I'm considering (NYC, DC, LA) U of I is pretty unlikely because i'm not aiming for chicago. WUSTL is probably going to be out unless they come through with an amazing scholarship offer (which i highly doubt.) what about you, where do you stand?
I would go to either NU or Chicago in a heartbeat (at least I think) if I get in (hardy har), Otherwise, DC and LA are my top locales.
Penn is a great place - i've friends there and have visited. very friendly and collegiate atmosphere, beatiful campus, and while i don't think philly is a 'real' city (i'm a new yorker), it has a lot to offer. hope everything works out!
Thanks, I'm ecstatic about Tulane and will be attending. Congratulations on your acceptances so far and all the best in making your decision.
Yeah, heh, looks like you had something akin to a legit addendum yourself? Congrats on getting into your school thus far! GW and U of I are excellent, excellent schools. Wow nice email from Michigan to boot. I didn't get a courtesy "because you've waited so long" email. pssshh. :)
Went to Ross (UMich) yeah- probably helped some. So have you sent supplemental info to your deferrals yet?
I guess we're both waiting for the same good news from Vanderbilt. Good luck.
I just saw that two people got waitlisted at Vandy today with numbers similar to mine...once again, I just had to check to make the rest of my day more stressful. I'll try to take your advice but it'll be hard.
Best of luck on the rest of your cycle. Thank you for taking my survey! My thesis is about how cultural variables affect the legitimacy of international law, comparing and contrasting the US and Costa Rica, as well as talking about Costa Rica as an anomoly [sic] in Latin America. :) So, I totally agree and think that you need at least one rejection. Let's you know you really did reach as high as you possibly could! Right now I'm just wishing the rest of my schools would answer already! A "no" would be better than this waiting!
congrats as well. you look like you have some good options.
thanks for the advice--i actually was thinking the exact same thing.
is awesome. Just in case you didn't already know ;)
Hm, guess the "good as it sounds" is referring to the 'lil play by play I gave ? Yeah I was thrilled. Guess it came through like that that too. :) Congrats on UIUC I don't think I've had a chance to say that. Also, any news on U of M?
sorry it took so long to get back to you...you can email me with questions. i plan on writing a "continued letter of interest" about my visit one of these days, i need to get my thoughts in order.
Same to you on both accounts!
Apparently you've gotten a taste of the G'town craziness as well. Waitlisted at UPenn and Mich but rejected at GULC? Umm. Whatever. Do you have a first choice among the places you're still considering?
I used to work in downtown DC, very near GW -- it's a great location (actually a nicer location than GULC!). I don't know much about Penn; Michigan is a great school, though obviously, being in Ann Arbor would be very different than living in DC. I'm not complaining about my situation - it's hard to make choices, but I feel lucky to have such good ones. If, say, I'd been waitlisted at YLS, it would have been very difficult to decide how long to hold out. I'm pretty much choosing among Stanford, Harvard and Yale right now. I have to visit all three programs, then I'll make a decision. I'm not a total prestige whore -- I'd be seriously considering Michigan if they'd offered me a full scholarship, but they didn't. I'm still waiting to hear from UVA and Chi about money, but it's doubtful they'd offer enough to compete with SLS/HLS/YLS, which all have very good LRAP programs.
I am a senior at NU right now--good luck with the waitlists!
Thank you for your congrats! The first acceptance does always feel good! I just noticed that despite are different GPAs and LSATs, we have the exact same ChiaShu percentage for NU... a whopping 16% chance. Anyway, i think it's great how you've been sending them extra stuff. I am wondering, do you think there is anything I can do at this point to help my chances given that I have not yet heard anything? Is there any way to send a letter of continued interest or extra rec letter without even having been put on a waitlist? I am guessing I am jumping the gun a bit, I just really want to go there and will do whatever is needed to try to show them that... Let me know if you have any suggestions. THANKS!
how was your trip to michigan? do anything fun?
The trinkets are nice, but something more substantial would be even nicer.
You're going up to DC this weekend? Perhaps I will see you there.
I was excited about MN, but then I came home to a nice rejection from ND... so that bummed me out a bit. I am crossing my fingers for good things from GW, WashU, and BC (and NU, of course, but that is gonna take a lot more than just crossing my fingers). PS Have you heard anything about writing a letter of continued interest BEFORE hearing from a school? Someone told me I should send one to NU, and I'm curious about what others think of that suggestion.
The money is merit based. I was offered $20000/yr shortly after being accepted. Received an email increasing to $30000 3/28.
for the well wishes! i'm glad you like my lsn page. congrats to you as well! GW is a great school--and you know, I think if you should some serious interest, you have a good chance at a wl-->accept at Mich!
I hope that the LSAT can trump a bad gpa! Congrats on your acceptances
They increased it without my asking.
seems we're in the same boat...maybe i'll see you in the fall!
Trust me, I'm as astounded as can be. Even if I am YPable, my connections to the university and the state should have given them SOME kind of assurance that it was in serious consideration - but screw em, their loss. Right now I'm leaning toward Cornell, but who knows where I'll actually end up. NU officially put me on hold yesterday, so I'm hopin and prayin for that to come through. How about you, are you all decided on GW if NU doesn't pull through?
Neither, actually! I'm doing Teach for America and deferring GW. Maybe I'll find you when you're a wise old 3L and I'm a newbie? I actually grew up in Evanston but am down in Chambana... you're a Wildkit, I assume?
To be honest, I have no idea what to think of the hold. I'm happy that I've made it at least that far in light of my lack of work experience, and I'm very much hoping I get in so that I can stay close to my family and friends, and have an easier time getting a job in Chicago
congrats - your cycle's done! i admire your confidence and wonderful attitude - good luck at GW, i know you'll love it.
i nearly had a heart attack clicking through all that mess. good luck!
