I am super awesome.

Additional info & updates

4/9

Boalt it is! Not very surprising news, I know. The End. Cheers!

3/25

Withdrew from Mich today, with what was probably an excessively long email about how much I love them. Will withdraw from the rest today or early next week.

2/28

Denied matching funds from Boalt. Darn. I guess I'd better get used to my school being broke....

2/24

Cool scholarship offer from Chicago. The $50,000 breaks down to $25k the first year, $15k the second year and $10k the third year, with the option of an additional $10k the third year if you spend at least ten weeks of your 2L summer doing a public interest job. Pretty neat! I am still waiting to hear back from Boalt about matching the Michigan offer, so we'll see what happens there.

1/29

Well, since that's probably the last of my news, I feel like I should do some sort of a round-up. In at Columbia. Out at Stanford. Done and done. I am still leaning towards Boalt, but I will try to make it to NYC to check out NYU/CLS just to make sure that I don't have a change of heart. I just came back from the Georgetown's ASW and I had a great time, but it also helped convince me that I should go where I'll be happy. I'm still looking to see how any money offers might shape up, but I'll probably be withdrawing from some more schools soon. I'll wait to see what happens with Harvard, but for now I'm going to assume that it's a no-go. Thanks for all the congratulations, everyone!

1/10

Sent withdrawal emails to UCLA and UC Hastings. I'm sad about Hastings! I love them! But it's not really fair to stay in the running at this point.

I will probably stick with GTown, Mich and NYU until I've attended some ASW's and heard back about money.

1/9

On hold at Harvard. It's cool; I'm going to Boalt anyway.

12/12

Since a few people have asked, my top choice is still Boalt. I'm trying to keep an open mind, but as of now that's where I'm planning to go.

p.s. I'm bringing shanny and jd2bee with me. They just don't know it yet.

12/11

In at NYU. Sweet! I think I should withdraw from UCLA and G-town. I don't want to be rude by withdrawing from UCLA so quickly, but it's probably helpful to them, I suppose.

11/30

In at UCLA via awkward phone call during the work day.

11/29

Hmmm. Playing phone tag with a dean of admissions from UCLA. He left me a message saying that I should call him back, so I did and left him a message saying to call me back. It's like an awkward post-date phone situation. "So, I, uh, really liked your application. I'd like to know more about you." "Oh, I like your school, too, thanks!" "Can I call you somtime?" I don't know which school started this whole notifiying people by phone thing, but I think it's rather stressful....

11/20

Wow! Big, big day for me! In at Boalt and Michigan! I am walking on air! Boalt is probably my top choice of realistic possibilities, so it is really shocking to hear back so soon. I won't bore you with the details because they're pretty much the same as they were for everyone else who heard back today...

10/10

Sent off my Michigan app finally. I may still apply to Yale at some point down the line, but that's mostly just because I believe in philanthropy. Now it's the big wait. My preferences have already changed a lot since this process started, and I think they will continue to do so once I start to get word of where I'm in and where I'm out (as Heidi would put it). At the moment I have no idea where I'm hoping to end up.

P.S. In case anyone is wondering, I did write the Why Mighigan? essay. I do really like them, actually...

10/02
Went complete at Chicago! Woo hoo! The first one is exciting! Interestingly, they still haven't cashed my check (but I assume that will happen soon).

9/29

I'm adding Michigan, and probably dropping BU. BU is mostly there as a security blanket because I secretly hope to end up in Boston or San Francisco, but I don't think I could justify choosing it over even Georgetown, which is probably a good enough safety. I'm keeping Hastings because I still like it, although again, probably couldn't justify going there over most of my other choices.... I got the Michigan 60K offer, and I am starting to like it more and more. Too bad Ann Arbor is very cold and far away from everyone I've ever met. Oh well, so is Chicago, for that matter. I'd better suck it up.

9/22

Well, I didn't write a diversity statement. Screw it. We'll see what happens. I edited my personal statement some more before this last round, and I think it's better now. It probably won't make much difference, but I'll blame it on that if I get dinged at Columbia and Chicago...

9/16/06
I'm wrestling with whether or not to write a diversity statement for my super-reach schools, which is the only thing holding me up from submitting my Stanford and Harvard apps. I'm relatively happy with my PS (I guess), but it only covers one very specific topic. I probably should. Stay tuned for whether or not that actually happens...

9/12

Sent out my apps to Chicago, Columbia and UCLA. Very nerve-wracking, but here goes nothing...

8/18/06
Okay, LSN, let's get it together. I still can't add any schools up there. I'm thinking of adding UVA to my targets? And probably throwing Chicago back on there.
Also, New York is starting to look more attractive at the moment.

Why not cut off BU and Hastings and throw in Penn and USC instead? That should leave you with plenty of options come January.

Good luck
Friday, April 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

You have great numbers, and I'm pretty sure you'll do well this cycle (oh, no! I'm starting the LSN-speak). Congrats on sending out your first apps!

Is this a blog or an LSN page? Good luck. I'm rooting for you.

The blog is great
Saturday, April 15 2006 at 08:00 PM

It's helpful and interesting to read. Don't knock the blog. Post more!

Thanks
Friday, April 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

It feels great to have my apps out finally! I'm going to send Michigan tonight, then I just have NYU left to contend with. Do you think not writing Why Michigan will hurt me? I'm doing two other optional essays instead. I'm sure you'll be hearing back from schools soon, so good luck!

Thanks

Yeah, I like it too, but the weather... I don't know about that!

Thursday, May 25 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hope you do really well this cycle (and it looks like you will!!!)!

Yale?
Saturday, June 24 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on G-town! I have similar numbers, (and was an English major) and am wondering what went into your decision not to apply to Yale. I can't really seem to get excited about it either, (not that I think I would get in), and am trying to decide whether to submit.

congrats on gtown!
Wednesday, June 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

hi twin, congrats on getting into gtown! i guess this means that unless something in my application was extraordinarily lacking, I should at least get into gtown. Here's hoping! good luck for a great cycle

congrats on gtown!

First of all, congratulations! Two amazing schools on the same day. Second of all, you're nuts! With your numbers, you have a great shot everywhere you applied! Good luck, fellow stresshead.

yeah!
Thursday, February 23 2006 at 07:00 PM

GoalieChica rules!!! So exciting on your acceptances!

Thanks, J!
Friday, April 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

I think Boalt is definitely the front-runner. We'll have to see how everything else shakes out, but don't be surprised if you find me there next year. We all know the Bay Area is the place to be, of course...

By the way...
Friday, April 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thank you, everyone else, for the congratulations! Gosh, a Stanley James visitation and everything....

Congrats on your acceptances!
Monday, May 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

I'm sure you've got plenty more coming your way. Is Boalt your top choice at the moment?

heya!
Friday, June 02 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptances so far...what's your top choice?

Congrats!
Thursday, November 30 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations on your FOUR massive acceptances! If you don't mind me asking, did you go complete at H w/o receiving a phone interview request? That's what happened to me, and you and I have very similar numbers, which is why I'm curious. Do you think they have a GPA cut off at 3.7?

From an SF Firm
Sunday, December 10 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey- I think you work at a law firm in SF too -- I am probably just around the corner. What's up? Boalt was a thrill for me, although I feel like a change.

Congrats on NYU!
Monday, May 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

You have some exciting choices for law school. =) Good luck on the rest of your apps!

Boalt
Monday, July 10 2006 at 08:00 PM

Oh wow, I just read your comments on Boalt. You're taking me with you? Haha. We'll see. Although right now it is a top choice. Don't tease me and then end up going to Harvard or Standard! I'm holding you to your word on Boalt!

Good plan.
Sunday, May 14 2006 at 08:00 PM

Should there be a next time, I'll do that. I think it'll endear me to the school. (Screw Boalt, come to delicious, delicious Michigan. Or Columbia. Or Michigan. Ah hell.)

Congrats
Friday, December 22 2006 at 07:00 PM

on all your acceptances so far! I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on Boalt as I will probably have to make some tough decisions this cycle...

Have I told you...
Saturday, September 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

...that I like the blog style you've got going here? It's nice. I hope Boalt gives you a full ride to make your decision very easy!

Tough Choices
Thursday, June 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

I think you'll have to make some soon, starting with Boalt or Stanford. You're a great poster and a kind person and I'm glad-even if _not_ surprised!-that things have gone almost flawlessly for you thus far.

i'm looking forward to the stories from the asw weekends. /just sayin'

something wicked this way comes...
Wednesday, June 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

Goalie, congrats on all your acceptances. I fear now, based on our pretty identical cycles so far, that my Stanford rejection can't be too far behind. Congrats on Columbia! If you have any questions on the campus and campus life what not, feel free to email me (I went there for undergrad)...

...
Friday, October 20 2006 at 08:00 PM

I realized only recently that I had completely forgotten how well your cycle went...and it went amazingly. I don't know what Stanford was thinking, but it seems to me (for whatever it's worth) you might enjoy Boalt more anyway. Boo on Columbia. Who wants to be another factory law clone anyhow? :)

go to boalt
Wednesday, January 10 2007 at 07:00 PM

i have visited many cities, and it is hands down the nicest. berkeley is a little bit of a time warp, but i like it. best of luck, and great scores!

Monday, December 18 2006 at 07:00 PM

did you get the t-stock call before you were held?

Way to go!
Sunday, June 11 2006 at 08:00 PM

"On hold at Harvard. It's cool; I'm going to Boalt anyway. " Amen; me too. ;)

Hey.
Friday, October 20 2006 at 08:00 PM

177 on Chicago $$$. Surely you have to be strongly considering it now, yes?

CLS vs Boalt
Tuesday, October 17 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hi Goalie, I saw on LSD that you are still favoring Boalt over CLS. So far these are my top two choices and I'm having a heck of time deciding. Is there a certain reason you are leaving towards Boalt? I'm just looking for a little advice. Are you going to the Boalt ASW?
