Sunday, August 05 2007 at 08:00 PM

congrats on duke..did you get an application status checker email prior to your acceptance? any scholarship info?

Sunday, August 05 2007 at 08:00 PM

hey! i see that our applications were both received at H on the same day--nice! when do you think it will go complete?

Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Duke!

good luck
Tuesday, September 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

it looks like you should be hearing from some schools in the next few weeks...

Sunday, August 05 2007 at 08:00 PM

hls interview yet?--not me:)

Sunday, August 05 2007 at 08:00 PM

word from HLS? don't you hate Friday's email anticipation...(sigh)

Berkeley Buddy

Good luck with your apps this cycle - thanks for the encouragement on LSD. I think your numbers are amazing and I would be surprised if you DIDN'T into some T5 schools.

Thursday, March 01 2007 at 07:00 PM

on Michigan!

Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

...jealous of your numbers and acceptances - keep it going! CONGRATS!

Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Michigan!

Sunday, September 09 2007 at 08:00 PM

on Michigan. I'm sure it bodes well for the remainders.

Sunday, March 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks!! And congrats on Duke and Michigan! I bet you'll hear from Berkeley soon too.

Thursday, October 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Duke and Michigan!

First 2
Sunday, July 22 2007 at 08:00 PM

Acceptances of many, I'm sure, for you as well :)

Friday, November 09 2007 at 07:00 PM

Did you get an email from Berk. saying your file was under review? How long after that did you receive a decision?

Tuesday, September 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

I got the Toby Stock e-mail today. Good luck to you!

Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM


Friday, October 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, I tried to apply early, as you did. I'm sure that you'd be accepted to those schools too, if you'd applied. I haven't heard from Harvard, and I wonder if it's because I didn't have a 4.0 or go to a top undergrad school. Here's to both of us getting an email next Friday!

Saturday, March 03 2007 at 07:00 PM

I got the TS email the same day as you. Anything out of Cambridge yet? Do you think we'll hear yay or nay pre-break?

Saturday, March 03 2007 at 07:00 PM

I certainly hope so. Someone on TLS said that the people who interviewed the equivalent of this week last cycle didn't hear about acceptances until after the first. Anyway, I hope we get interviewed tomorrow, so at least that stress will be gone. Best of luck.

Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Penn!

Saturday, March 03 2007 at 07:00 PM

Just got off the phone with him. Hope you either have already or will hear soon.

No call for me yet
Monday, December 18 2006 at 07:00 PM

So I'll keep the anxiety fires high until tomorrow. Your call went well, I hope!

Saturday, March 03 2007 at 07:00 PM

on the call. Sorry to have gotten you antsy yesterday. Hope it went fantastically.

Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Chicago!

Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Columbia!

Youre awesome
Wednesday, May 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

I've read your LSD posts, and Im still pulling for you for Harvard. GOOD LUCK!!!

Saturday, January 12 2008 at 07:00 PM

Fantastic accomplishments, sincere congrats... now how about withdrawing from Berkeley so the rest of us lesser mortals can have a shot ;) ?

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on all of your options! I've lived in both Chicago and Philly, and both are great. Thanks for withdrawing from UMich - maybe I'll get your spot =) Congrats again!

hey, congrats
Monday, June 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

on Harvard! I guess holding out paid off!

Saturday, July 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

on all your acceptances.. i\'m applying this fall, and I was wondering if you could give me any advice on the application process... Let me know!

omg congrats on stanford!
Saturday, April 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

so unbelievable and awesome that you got off the waitlist in july -- you\'re such a wonderful example of why patience is a virtue -- best of luck on the decision making!

Sunday, September 09 2007 at 08:00 PM

hey congrats on stanford! sorry not to get back to you sooner--i don\\\\\\\'t check this thing too often anymore. for me, choosing stanford over harvard was a no brainer. born and raised in CA with no intentions of ever leaving, so it\\\\\\\'s just the perfect school for me. anyway, it looks like you already decided, so hopefully you feel like you made the right choice. (you did.) i\\\\\\\'ll be seeing you very soon here!

question -- how\'d you get your apps in
Saturday, April 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

I\'m working on my 08-09 apps now, and I\'m wondering how you got your apps in so quickly (by the end of September) -- did you just go ahead and work off the past year\'s paper apps if they were available and submit everything when this year\'s apps finally went up online? Congratulations and thanks!

Kind of fitting
Saturday, June 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

After Harvard jerked you around so much, you get to reject them. Congrats on Stanford. I think your choice will be looking very good (and mine very bad) by the time winter rolls around.

Saturday, April 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

Okay, that sounds like what I\'m doing now -- working through PS statements, the lovely Yale 250, and other essays. Hopefully a little break from the LSAT and refocusing on other parts of my app will help me get over a not so fun wall I\'ve hit with prep. I\'m still so happy for you -- SLS got a balla ;)

Monday, September 19 2011 at 08:00 PM

On Bar!
