Additional info & updates

4/16/2007: Just got back into Ann Arbor after Harvard's admitted students weekend, and my parents tell me a thin envelope showed up back home from Yale. That settles it, I guess!

2/9/2007: Much as I wish I were finished with my application season, it's not the case. I forget what my reasoning was for hiding Yale on here LSN, so I've set it to "visible" again.

2/1/2007: Phone call from Chicago, with login info for admitted student site.

1/27/2007: Columbia, in a big white envelope. Nice binder.

1/7/2007: Oh my god it's Harvard. I am in SHOCK.

1/1/2007: Contrary to my every expectation, I got an email from from the Dean of Admissions at Harvard! He'll be calling me sometime this week for an interview -- let the stress-out begin.

12/16/2006: Big manila envelope from NYU... can't beat that eleven-day turnaround! And, I have something to brag to my family about over break! (I'm using a lot of exclamations in these updates, I realize...)

11/17/2006: Just checked my status at UMich: decision! Apparently I've got a thick letter from them waiting at home -- can't wait until Wednesday to see it!

10/27/2006: Aaaand, second letter is in! I really need to find an afternoon soon to write my last NYU essay, so I can call myself finished with my last app!

10/15/2006: It's been almost a month since my last update, but school's making me busy and my apps are dormant. Still waiting on that second letter! UMich, at any rate, sent me a complete notice, since they only require one LOR.

9/20/2006: Initial round of apps submitted. My second letter isn't in yet, so I'm going to use the "Received" column to indicate when that comes in and my app is therefore complete on my end. That way I can keep track of this myself, and it won't look *too* strange as it would if there was a month or so break between submitting and going complete.

9/1/2006: UMich fee waiver, with hand-written note. They delivered it all the way to my permanent address, then my parents brought it down when they came. They should have sent it to my current address, which is about two blocks away from them.

8/30/2006: I removed UVA, GW, and Fordham. I'm also almost certain I won't apply to Georgetown -- I don't speak any one foreign language well enough to get into their Global Scholars program, and I know that if I wound up there without being in the program, I'd feel like I failed before I even began. So it's probably out too, but for now it's a grudging safety.

6/30/2006: Got my score yesterday, added my initial round of dream schools today. I'll have to look into safeties a little bit, but for now these should do.

Chiashu sez: odds for getting in to each school using 2005 data (where available).

Harvard: 44%
Columbia: 64
NYU: 84
Georgetown: 83
U Chicago: 59
Michigan: 54
Virginia: 85
Fordham: 94
GWU: 94

LSAT Prep: 164, 168, 165, 166, 166, 168, 171, 166 ... [lost track around here] ... a few 175s in the week before the test.

I won't be too expansive here; that's for my blog: http://eastofannarbor.blogsome.com.

Good luck this cycle. HLS bound, I'm sure!

Unsolicited advice

With your numbers, I think you should apply to UVa even if you have absolutely no intent of ever attending.. Why? Because they may admit you with money and UVa is highly regarded enough that a generous offer from them could get you money at everywhere from NYU down. You can probably get a fee waiver to apply there, so it won't cost you anything and could save you thousands in loans. Good luck!

That's not a bad idea; I was kind of hoping to find a few more schools to apply to for that very reason. And it was on my list until this week as someplace I wouldn't mind attending, so if another school called my bluff it wouldn't be the end of the world. Hmm...

good luck

our numbers are similar, I'll be watching your cycle/blog carefully.

Good luck on your cycle!
Monday, May 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

I've been following your progress on your blog--you're going to have a great cycle! Why aren't you interested in the West Coast?

Saturday, February 11 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on getting in at your alma mater! Now just wait for the acceptance from Hahvahd!

Sunday, December 10 2006 at 07:00 PM

You read my essay back in August or Septemeber, and I read yours too. It looks like the cycle has gotten off to a good start at UMich. How's it going?

Tuesday, November 21 2006 at 07:00 PM

Wow, congrats on your NYU acceptance! Do you have any idea why they fast-tracked your application? That turnaround time is ridiculous.

Sunday, December 24 2006 at 07:00 PM

No I was not the only admit before Christmas, I got it the same day as a few of my buddies. I'm sure yours will arrive too! Best of luck!

way to go

Friday, September 29 2006 at 08:00 PM

5 for 5. Huge congratulations. Good luck deciding. (Though I guess HLS is pretty much your top choice?)

great job
Thursday, January 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

hey great numbers and great acceptances. how did you study for the lsat and for how long? any advice for the lsat or the application process? thanks.

Saturday, April 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

is your mom a teacher or something? my mom works with a woman who i think might be your mom, and they were talking and she her son went to michigan and is going to harvard, and i thought maybe that was you. i want to go to law school as well, that's why this discussion was brought up. if i'm wrong, my bad!
