Congrats on Cornell and good luck on the rest of cycle.

Running up the phone bill..
Sunday, July 09 2006 at 08:00 PM

i do have one more quick question. Did cornell give you a phone interview or a admissions call?

cornell
Saturday, October 21 2006 at 08:00 PM

congrats! great school, although a lot colder than cali... did you get the email after the letter in the mail? i'm still waiting...

yay!
Tuesday, December 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

hooray for your acceptance to cornell! pat yourself on the back :) and um, can we trade spots?

Friday, March 10 2006 at 07:00 PM

looks like we applied to tons of the same places - i'd like to have your LSAT score though! Congrats on cornell, screw Gtown, and good luck w/everything else! :)

like me
Thursday, December 21 2006 at 07:00 PM

we got similar scores, and both applied to a lot of schools, which makes us like twins. i seriously dont understand how some of this admission stuff works tho, seems like some of it is totally random. anyways good luck with everything, congrats on UT

Good luck to you as well. Nice job on Cornell. You're giving me some hope on that front. We should probably hear from some schools around the same time.

WUSTL
Monday, August 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

hey good job with WUSTL! That's great! I am an EA candidate there as well and I didn't get the email, so I have been expecting the waitlist/ding in the mail...but you have given me a little bit of hope! Can I ask when your letter was postmarked? (I didnt get it today but my mail is always slow)

oops
Monday, August 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

yeah now i see that you posted when the letter was dated...anyway congratulations

ED at TX?
Tuesday, December 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

USC
Monday, February 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

To answer your question, it was a phone call from Dean Castellon. I turned them down, though, so maybe you got bumped a spot. Any recent updates on your cycle?

undergrad
Monday, March 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

where did you do your undergrad? I have very similar numbers and am surprised to see you were WLed by USC and rejected at GTown...I go to a NESCAC.
