I'll give you one point of my lsat if you give me .1 of your GPA. ;) I'm sure you're in for a great application season.
Thanks for the encouragement! I love Cal and it's great that u/g students like us to want to stay for another 3 years :) Best of luck with all your apps.
We have a pretty similar list of schools (who doesn't?!?) I totally commiserate with your "I'm not going to do more work for Duke than I have to" sentiment...I sent them in first without any tweaking of my PS, and I didn't write a "why Duke," though I did apply for their joint JD/MA (psych)...so we'll see how that pans out. Good luck - I'll keep an eye out for you!
I like Boalt from what I've read (haven't been out to visit), so I might apply...but I was kind of hoping for a fee waiver. :P I guess I'll sit on it for a while, and once I get my PS finalized for all my other schools, I'll take a look at Boalt, too.
Congrats on Duke - on a holiday, no less!
Honestly, I don't know why they put me on hold. I thought it might be my age, but I have a friend exactly my age (with worse numbers) who got accepted to Duke last year... so I have no idea. Congrats on your acceptance, though! Good luck to you this cycle :-D
I feel bad for not getting back to you for so long! Thanks for all your help. Congrats on Duke!
congrats to you on duke :) tho it's not your top choice, i'm sure it feels good! good luck on the rest of your cycle, tho you don't need it ha
dude you are the man. congrats on boalt
In your opinion, do you recommend that everyone write a diversity statement? Even if you are not exactly what might normally be considered diverse? (white, irish catholic)
Nice work =)
on all of your acceptances and on acceptance to Michigan - you know that's what it is you may as well mark it as such!
I completely understand what you are saying about marking it as an acceptance but I am pretty sure you know that it is. I know that you don't want to jinx yourself too! One of the schools that I am leaning heavily towards is the one we are discussing right now. I don't think I'll get in but I have some wicked soft factors and I think I wrote a bad ass Why Mich essay...I guess we'll see. I am definitely happy about 6-1 but I would love some T1 acceptances before Xmas! Happy holidays man - wish I could be in the states for them!
...isn't really splitter-friendly, from what I've seen. It's too bad, I really do like Ithaca. Anyway, congrats on everything! (Especially Michigan!)
very surprised to see u waitlisted at penn--doesnt bode well for me..did you write the why penn essay?
Well, I think Norris would have gotten into Northwestern, but thanks anyways ;) I have been really taken aback by the early successes, I just feel more lucky than anything else. Congrats on your acceptances and good luck on the pending apps. I really like Boalt and Michigan, so even if it comes down to those two (it won't, youll get into other places) you have an enviable choice.
congratulations on all your acceptances. what was the acceptance letter from columbia dated, if you don't mind my asking?
to hear about your Chicago ding, but congrats on CLS! If nothing else, you'll be closer to Elise, Lexington, Hudson, and the other guys.
congrats about Columbia, sorry to hear about Chicago. I'm a little puzzled that you'd be outright rejected there. Are your lsat/gpa numbers accurate? What do you think it was? Bad LOR?
Congrats on NYU, Columbia and NW! What is the deal with UCLA WL'ing (over)qualified candidates like you?
I'd be happy to chat with you regarding my experience with Boalt's admissions process. Shoot me an email: brauerak (at) plu.edu.
