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).
U Chicago: 59
LSAT Prep: 164, 168, 165, 166, 166, 168, 171, 166 ... [lost track around here] ... a few 175s in the week before the test.
