Additional info & updates

Once, I kept a pet goldfish alive for seven years, defying all laws of statistical probability. Hoping to beat the odds one more time.

Good luck to all in this *harrowing* admissions process.


3/6: Just received e-mail acceptance from Indiana. (Oddly, never received notification that my app was complete.) Woohoo!!!

3/9: Wash U acceptance (notified by e-mail). Shocked and elated.

NOTE: Scholarship money is amount per year. Wash U's offer has no strings attached--mighty tempting.

3/15: Deferred at Minnesota. On the bright side, this is 1) better than rejection and 2) confirmation that my application is complete.

3/27: In at Ohio State via snail mail. Barring a fabulous scholarship offer, probably won't be attending. (To all you OSU hopefuls, I'll make a decision as soon as I get my financial aid award. Certainly don't want to tie up a seat.)

3/28: I didn't think I had a prayer of being admitted to UMich, but applied to appease my family. Now I've been waitlisted; I'm suprised and pleasantly befuddled.

4/02: No money --> no matriculation at OSU. Formally withdrew my application today.

4/11: E-mail notification from Illinois. I'm thoroughly confused!

4/16: Busy day! Accepted at Arizona, with 13k/11k/11k scholarship. Ohio State offered me a 10.5k scholarship--peculiar, considering I formally withdrew my application. Their online survey asked about offers from other schools, though, so perhaps they adjusted their aid package to match.
Waitlisted at Iowa (withdrawing this afternoon) . Also, declined IUB's offer of admission today. Had a wonderful visit, but the fit wasn't right.

4/25: Waitlisted at Colorado. Better than rejection, I suppose, but I'll still be withdrawing.

4/27: In at UMN! Notified by phone. The confusion compounds.

5/11: After much deliberating/agonizing, I formally withdrew my application from WashU and requested a deposit refund. WashU is amazing, but Minnesota has a formal concentration in labor law.

5/15: Passively withdrew from Arizona and ASU when I didn't send in seat deposits. Anti-climactic.

Minnesota it is, unless that other, more elusive U of M admits me off the waitlist. I'm thrilled at the prospect of being in Minneapolis this fall! (Though--to be perfectly fair--at some point in the bitter Minnesota winter I will surely lament my decision to pass up Arizona . . . )

6/13: Released from UMich waitlist. I appreciate the subtle irony of a letter with the message: we like you, but not enough to admit you. What would an admissions cycle be without at least one ding, though? No hard feelings; I'm still a wolverine football fan for life.

MINNEAPOLIS BOUND! Couldn't be more pleaseed . . .

Congrats on Wash U!!!That is so awesome. Is the email the first time they contacted you? I have also applied there during EA, but was deferred...Any suggestions on how to interpret this? Congrats again.

Thanks for leaving a comment

I applied to UMN in mid-Oct. and received the first letter (deferred) dated Dec. 6. The final acceptance letter was dated March 6. Good luck on UMN!!

ASU second string

I would kill for Washington, or even your waitlist at Michigan. Good Job! Do you mind if I ask what ASU gave as their deadline for a decision?

Although I would love to tell you that ASU is a horrible school (to free up another space for myself) I will take my selfish motivations out of the equation and tell you it is a good school. I went there for undergrad, and I love living in AZ, as I'm sure you will if you can take the heat. (Think pools, cold drinks, and A/C) Aesthetically, I think the school is lacking. The classrooms are fairly modern, but the common areas leave a lot to be desired. Any other info about faculty/programs of study can be found on their web site. If you plan to practice law in AZ or Vegas, this is a #1 pick. If youre looking for national work/or a job in DC, there are better choices. (East coast) I went to the open house day last year and the atmosphere seemed cordial/somewhat competitive. They are ranked #51, which means a lot to some, not a lot to others. Depending on your personality/circumstances, the atmosphere around ASU/Tempe may interfere with studies. There is a lot to do (Bars, Hiking, Boating, etc), so if youre tempted by the party scene, you may get in to trouble. Im a family man myself with only the slightest urge to attend Happy Hour on Fridays. I feel pretty good about my chances, so if you do choose to come to the desert, I would love to have you as a classmate.
