2/9/07 - Everybody knows already, but for the sake of accuracy, I've been held at Columbia. Look to see some exciting withdraw action pending Michigan's ASW.
12/22/06 - In at NYU. I'm not going, but it's nice to know that, technically, I've my choice of law schools. C'mon Columbia. what's taking so long?
12/21/06 - Technically I got the call yesterday, but I'm the dumb@ss who didn't answer the phone . . . FULL DARROW. I almost told Dean Zearfoss to Shut. Up., but in retrospect, I'm glad I managed to keep that one to myself.
12/11/06 - Darrow essay's confirmed in . . . and every available body part is crossed.
12/08/06 (Pt.2) - Got an invite to apply for the Darrow at Michigan. Really excited, but man, I thought I was done with the essays.
12/08/06 - Email confirmation of completion from Columbia on the 6th, NYU today.
12/05/06 - I'm verbally complete at Columbia, just waiting for the email, which should arrive in a day or two. According to the office it's apparently straight to the adcomm for me, since my app's been this close to complete for over a month. Fingers crossed and all that.
So no Penn or Stanford; getting my LORs is way too much of a hassle. Still haven't heard from NYU, but whatev.
12/04/06 - It's official, complete with big envelope; I'm in at Michigan!! Now I can finally breathe a bit easier, I know I'll be going somewhere, right? And they accepted me for the summer start program, which is a HUGE draw . . . and hence why they're now my #2 choice. Dean Zearfoss might be the coolest admissions officer ever, she actually hand wrote a note to me on my acceptance letter. I'm sure she does that for tons of folk, but it definitely made it feel special, you know?
If Columbia actually recieved the latest incarnation of my LOR via e-mail (I am really, really horrified by the USPS in New Orleans, I have to say), I will likely withdraw my apps to Stanford and Penn - if I'm moving, there's honestly only one place I really want to go. So, essentially, it's down to Columbia, Michigan and money.
11/30/06 - Got mail from Stanford today, nothing spectacular. The freakin' weird thing though (and pretty much the only reason the mail call's of note) is that, according to Stanford, at the request of their BLS, some example resumes and personal statements were included with my prospectus. Is that the law school equivalent of a Hint from Heloise? Seriously? I think if it weren't so funny I'd be a bit insulted.
11/28/06 - Pursuant to UMich's online status checker, blessing to obsessive/compulsive law applicants everywhere, I've got a decision. I feel like the speed with which they decided is a good thing, but I've still got 10-14 days before I know yea or nay. Arggg.
11/20/06 - My application is officially complete at U Mich; still haven't heard a peep from NYU. Man, do I hate the waiting.
11/14/06-I'm a moron; I just realized that my cycle was still marked as 2005/2006. Whoops. So really, I'm in this cycle. I swear I deserve to go to law school, honest.
Kiki asked a good question, so please note that, since pretty much everybody and their mom thought it was a stupid idea, I opted not to apply to Columbia ED. :) Thanks y'all.
Also, there've been a few fee waivers in the mail of late (UMich, Illinois, Indiana in the last couple of weeks and Penn today), but I've pretty much decided that, if it isn't a T14, I'm not really interested. (God, I hope that doesn't make me a snobby bitch.) So it's possible that my app list could keep growing, but I really have no idea who's interested.
Oh, and two of my LORs still haven't made it to LSAC, so I'm not looking to go complete anywhere but NYU and possibly UMich anytime soon.
I'm also an evacuee, so please feel free to factor in pity points to any acceptances I recieve.
