Congratulations! Definitely will be rooting for you this cycle. I have the feeling we'll both be pretty happy.
hi G, thanks for the note. I'll be watching your cycle. Best of luck to you!
I don't know what my #1 is yet. I have to visit the schools to get a feel for them before I commit my life and money.
Hmmmz, you should consider more schools in the 20-50 range, since you're a lock at some of em and might be limiting your options man. Best of luck to you though.
Congratulations on all of those fee waivers! I'd love to have Vanderbilt and Alabama, but I guess my multiple LSAT's locked me out. You expect more fee waivers after the law school forum? Should we just ask for them or do they take names?
Nice work on all those fee waivers. I just blew way too much money on submitting my apps, and I'd really like to apply to a couple other schools just in case. Good luck this cycle, we have similar numbers.
thanks for your encouraging words in my base. Good luck for you too. As an international student I am not quite clear how to get fee waivers. Would be appreciate if you could share some experiences on it. Thanks~
right back at ya ;)
thanks for the well wishes... we do have really similar #s so good luck!
hey man, how's it going. I'm interested in your opinions of Emory--how were the facilities? nice folks? I guess you're a native Georgian, so you really like the employment prospects; I wish there was a T25 in my state (I've got to settle for one of the rollin' 36s if I want to stay at home). anyway, let me know what you thought; Emory is on my list!
I expect a WL there, too. Glad to hear a positive review of Emory; maybe I should move it up my list. T25 sounds pretty fancy, too.
I am going to need every bit of luck if I am going to get into michigan or duke. But hell the apps were free so I just started slangin 'em. I figure someone might want a lowly physics major. Good Luck to you.
looks like your starting to go complete!
We'll see what happens with Cornell, I hope I neither of us get waitlisted, but its better than a ding i guess. Good luck to you too.
Looks like you're getting a lot of completes now too. Has Georgia requested your LSAC report? They haven't even requested mine yet.
yeah I went complete 11-9; got an e-mail. had to send in the signed cert letter with the check, that was the only wrinkle they had. anyway, the e-mail says they begin app review in mid-December, and decisions begin in mid-January, so you've got some time to sort things out.
Thanks for the well wishes. Yeah I had a rough ride my first few credits, then moved/transfered and was at the top of my class. However, schools have been VERY positive about having a huge turn around like that, and they have all said they put more weight on the later years in this situation. Good luck this cycle!
None of us are ever happy with our LSAT scores, are we? I wanted a 170! It's ok, though. Thanks for the good luck, I'll send some back to you. 16 schools, huh? You're sure to have quite a few tough decisions at the end of this cycle.
ridin the paranoid train, huh? I suppose I ought to as well. and yeah man, we'll have ample time to kick it on the Vandy WL. talk to you then! and good luck to you, man.
a little paranoid? bit much perhaps ;) ?
You've blocked everyting from view my brother... drop me a hint as to whats your top choice?
I actually just thought of the same thing. Congrats on UGA review... may we get in quickly!
Yeah, under status it still just says 'Decision.' It actually went to decision about 4 days before my acceptance phone-call.
hmm must have been 2-3 wks ... you also a ga native/ think we'll sneak into bcs?
I deferred at Rutgers last cycle... only 1 acceptance this cycle so far. They have started accepting people who applied after me at my top choice.. so we will see how that goes. How are things going for you? It's hard to tell with your apps hidden. :)
Thanks! Good luck to you, too. I would put you on my watch list except there's nothing to watch. :) How come you're hiding your apps? Just curious.
re kennesaw i went grade 1-12 in cobb co public schools. but doubt i'd withdraw from uga -- some t14 i would pay full price for but if i don't land any scholarships or bigger acceptances athens is still possible. you trying to stay local?
So still no acceptances for you? That's surprising. Or are you just holding out on us? :P
Schools seem to be taking their time. A lot of my schools don't sent anything out until after the new year. I am really trying to minimize cost for law school and am crossing my fingers for at least 1 of 3 state schools. No word from them yet. Less than 100K debt will make the years after graduation seem less bleak.
I'm sure you'll do great as well, even though I have no idea what your numbers are.
hey man, I remember we have similar numbers but how come your files are hidden now? Anyway, all the best to your wishes.
awesome dude! that's a pretty badass acceptance, man.
The applications are back up again! Congrats on W&L man, you are going to rock this cycle! I see Vandy in your near future.
Congrats to you too!! Yeah 166ers!! Good luck on the rest of your cycle!
Appreciate the well wishes, and congratulations on W&L as well. It's a good start I guess, but I'm sad that I'm likely getting deferred at Michigan, but oh well. I was really surprised when I got $ from Illinois, especially with how much I got, but meh. Let's hope that we both keep it up and get some sweet acceptances :).
I bet you're happy to see that acceptance...you can breathe easier now! Good luck with the rest of your apps.
Well, the $ is a bit misleading since - it's $25k/yr, $75k total. However yeah, it's pretty sweet. I also emailed you, fwiw.
I bet you're relieved! Yeah, this cycle is going extremely well for me compared to last time I applied. The LSAT boost really helped me.
Congratulations on W&L. That's a great first acceptance. I'm sure they'll start rolling in soon (even if Georgia is taking forever.)
aye dood nice hit. stay hydrated.
I wish you luck too! :)
You're off to a good start too! Good luck, man.
I am very excited about the way this cycle is going! I honestly didn't think I would hear from any more schools until January. Congratulations! Now we just have to wait to hear about scholarship.
look at big ballin' clement, dude is rolling with an Emory admit. that's awesome, bro. congrats, big.
to you too...still waiting for my Dean's Cert to make it to W&L.
Thanks for the LSD message(s)! And no worries : ) And congrats to you too, on Emory!! We're applying to a lot of the same schools - best of luck with the rest of your cycle!! You're off to an awesome start w/W&L and Emory!
I'm keeping an eye on you buddy - we're almost identical! Congrats on Emory!
looks like you're getting some serious LSN love too. congrats again on the emory admit, that's awesome!
Congrats on Emory! Atlanta is up there as one of my top choices for after law school. Congrats on Illinois too.
I keep dead kittens in my freezer. I think they found out...
Thanks for the note. You got some jack as UIUC today I see as well -- good work. :) Which is your favorite of the 3 places accepteed so far?
Havent checked LSN much lately and just saw you got two more great choices. If you go to Atlanta and root for the Braves there will be war with me though (Mets fan) :)
And congrats to you on Emory!!! That's awesome - its my first choice, though I doubt I get in. I am copying and pasting the portion about my decision from the GSU status checker below. Requested Enrollment Date: Fall Semester 2008 Application Type: Graduate (GSU) Application Status: Decision Made Decision: Accepted Degree: Juris Doctor College: College of Law Major: LAW
GPA boost?! that's awesome, man. and it should definitely help you. congratulations!!
Hey, thanks for the info. I'll be honest, I hope they're holding out on kind of high LSAT in-staters because of scholarships. It's the only thing I can think of since they've admitted a 170+ instater and lots of 160's out of staters. It just seems to me they'd feel pressure from Emory and Alabama to go ahead and let us in.
I'm pullin for you too, and it looks like you aren't doing too shabby! I hope to hear from W&L next, but it took the Dean so long to get the certification in I just went complete their a few days ago. What are your personal rankings for where you want to go?
And that is pretty weird, did the letter come to your campus or permanent address?
Thanks fellow 166'er. No I'm technically not a URM, but law schools love to put me under their "students of color" statistic right? Did you get your Illinois scholarship along with your decision or separately? I just applied to Illinois and Loyola last week, whereas the rest I sent in my app in early November. I wonder there is still scholarship money left at Illinois.
nice run so far. i've got similar stats and hope for similar success. good luck with the rest of this cycle!
I know, right? I feel like I'm really tempting fate. But I have an acceptance in hand that I love (OSU), so I think I'm in good shape no matter what happens. Am not, however, excited to return to preptests...
Thanks and congrats on all your acceptances! Did you go to GSU for undergrad?
Congrats on GSU! I'm hoping for them or FSU (UGA is a long shot:-(). I noticed on your profile you exceeded your 127 maximum for school. I did too! I just kept finding classes I wanted to take!
I just put in my app to GSU.
I am amazed that you were rejected from Moritz Law! It makes me seriously question my chances there as my numbers are lower than yours are! I guess I can only hope for the best and hope your predictions are right! Good luck on the rest - you have some awesome acceptances under your belt already!
I know! It feels great to know that I am in someplace that I could definitely see myself going.
dude. what the fuck? that's obviously total, complete yield protection. they don't think a Georgia boy would come to Ohio. shit, man, I'm sorry.
Congrats to you too! When is the first ASW? And sorry to change subject, but are you a little perplexed about Wake? I sent mine around the same time you did, and have heard nothing...
haha did you truthfully answer the question on your app asking where else you were applying or something?
What are they thinking? Good job on your acceptances so far. 3 top 25's that is awesome. Do you have a preference?
Aren't you glad that wasn't your first decision? That would have sucked. At least you know it's not at all indicative of the rest of your cycle.
I wouldn't worry about it to much, you will surely get in. I can't really figure out their timing on decisions. They offered me the tution equalization scholarship. I am really excited about it but like you I am going to wait and see what other schools have to say. Good Luck on the rest of your cycle!
166ers are having great cycles!
Yup, took the Dec. LSAT. Hope the submit dates won't hurt me. Good luck!
Madison is aboslutely awesome. I thought I knew what a great college town was until I was there for homecoming/halloween one year. Granted, it never snowed the entire time I lived in Wisconsin. Hey, that Michigan rejection just says you didn't underestimate yourself. You'll never wonder "what if..." And I'm glad to hear you emailed UGA. Maybe it'll speed things along for you.
There are others who say Vandy went to decision for them on 1/15 too. Not me. I think it's waitlists, and they're holding off on rejecting others (me, lol.) Who knows though, maybe you've been accepted already. UGA never emailed me back either. Until they admit the majority on LSN though, I think you're best bet is to assume their deciding scholarships and you're being considered. Good luck! I still haven't received my letter from them yet.
Has your decision been mailed from Vandy yet? Mine was on the 15th, and me freaking out would be an understatement.
Sorry about UGA. I'm pretty pissed too but my numbers are lower. Best of luck to you off of the waitlist. I'm staying on as well but they have really gone down in my mind due to their actions today.
I can't effing believe UGA waitlisted you. Your criminal record and poor academic performance was years ago, right? Good luck with the LOCI. Congrats on the Vandy waitlist. I think I'm expecting a ding there now that they've sent out waitlists to most. I just wish they'd get it over with, lol.
Has your decision been mailed from UVA yet? Mine was apparently mailed out yesterday...
You're a fellow member :) Not sure if fellow members of honor societies are as close as brothers in a fraternity, but either way, I'm pulling for you more than ever now :)
Good luck on there. It was a tough cycle to be a 166 :-/
That's great news from W&L! Congratulations.
Any news from W&M yet? They sure seem to be taking their time with both of us while they accept later applicants in :-`,
What happened with UGA? What did they do to you?
That was an interesting experience you had with Georgia. I don't blame you for withdrawing though. Which schools are at the top of your list?
Thanks dude, I'm def interested in going there. Still waiting on USC and the infamous Vandy waitlist. Sorry about UGA, that story is kinda hilarious (no offense). Prolly better though, Emory is by far better in every way.
Congrats to you as well! Best of luck in the future :)
nice work playa - where you leaning these days?
Ya to bad Emory isnt being at all generous with their scholarship money. I am probably going to end up there as well. Going to ASW at ND only bc ive seen Emory 3 or 4 times already and want to be sure ND isnt where I want to be. Again congrats, Emory is soo $.
Yeah, I'm thinking about it. I'm visiting on Monday, so I'll really know something then. Congrats on getting the big money...you sure sound fired up!
Congrats on your decision! I followed the Emory thread on LSD and was hoping it would work out for you. Emory is in my top 2 now, and I'll most likely visit during ASD. I've never been to Atlanta before, but hopefully I'll like the school and city as much as you do. Let me know if you have any advice on what to see/look for.
Thank you, and congrats to you to - on the scholarship and on your decision to attend Emory!! Such an amazing opportunity! The scholarship was a complete shock to me, and definitely bumped Emory way up on my list (esp since GW - my first choice - has offered zilch). I'm really impressed by Emory, but I'm worried about moving so far away. Plus, I know I want to practice in DC...and I'm still on the fence about whether or not staying in DC (but having to take out massive loans) would be better in the long run. I'm definitely considering attending ASW, but I want to see how my visit next week to W&L goes first before I book plane tickets. But...the Emory scholarship will be extremely difficult to pass up...amazing school, ability to graduate with minimal debt...I've never been to Atlanta, but have a feeling I would love it there.
Hey thanks and congrats to you as well! If you are from Georgia, Emory is definitely the place to be. The scholarship they offered is really generous, but I think I am going to stay on the west coast and go to UCLA. Have fun at the ASW!
great work man -- dinosaur
Interesting Cycle for sure. But that is a great end result. Emory is a fantastic school and for that price an absolute steal. Through reading your lengthy ordeal I feel that we are similar in the way we think and approach this difficult decision. It is refreshing to see someone else feel blown away with oppurtunities being presented to them whether they be acceptances or scholarships. I feel to often the people on these websites take them for granted or simply are to arrogant to realize how fortunate they are. I am fairly close to making a similar decision of accepting a full scholarship at a school that was honestly a dream school to me. I could not feel more fortunate or appreciative and is nice to see someone else feels the same way.
I'm 90 percent sure I will be at Wake Forest. I was offered a Full Scholarship and I think that is just too much to turn down. I also was blown away when I visited. I am getting more and more pumped the closer it gets. People complain about the 166 being in "no mans land" as far as schools, but I am pretty happy where has gotten me. Congrats once again about Emory, and good luck!
thanks for your comment, it looks like I'll be joining you at Emory in the fall!!! I loved the school after visiting and the money certainly didn't hurt
I enjoyed reading your LSN log (so much of what you wrote resonated) and wanted to wish you luck on your journey!
Hey, I'm hoping for a 164 at least, so we might have very similar numbers and schools. Good luck this cycle. I'm adding you to my watchlist. It makes me feel a little stalker-ish though, lol. So I guess I feel the need to disclose it.
