Additional info & updates

2/12/07: IN AT UVA!!! Email from a 2L congratulating me on my acceptance; deceptively small, thin envelope waiting at home!!!

2/28/07: In at Fordham via status checker. Wasn't expecting status checker to give me a decision, but OK!

2/28/07: IN AT GEORGETOWN!!! Short, handwritten note from Dean Cornblatt expressing his hope that I would stay in DC!!!

3/18/07: OH MY GOD IN AT NYU!!!!!!!!!! Just got back at 3 am from a weeklong cruise to perhaps the best news I've ever gotten!!! Snail mail. Holy crap I'm not sleeping tonight.

3/19/07: Well, finally some bad news. Put on Reserve at Columbia, meaning that I now have the option of rejecting them. Whatever, NYU's better anyway (Columbia's response: oh yeah? We'll just see about that when US News puts out their new rankings! [my response: eh.])

3/20/07: Withdrew from Fordham and BU. Good luck to those of you still hoping to hear from them!

3/27/07: Held at Northwestern. After hearing weather reports this weekend on Chicago, there's no way I was going anyway. I will be withdrawing shortly.

4/2/07: Holy crap, $25,000 package from NYU. I was not expecting that at all. Oh my God. Also, withdrew from Columbia.

4/3/07: Withdrew from Georgetown.

4/6/07: Waitlisted at Penn; promptly withdrawn.

4/16/07: Withdrew from Duke and NYU. Sigh, oh what might have been... Also, rejected from Harvard.

My cycle is complete! I'm a Wahoo!!!!!!!!

Also, City/State indicates wherew I went to school, not where I currently live/work.

you'll have to elaborate on the 'international educational tv star' bit once your cycle is over. curiosity killed the cat, and it'll kill me too if you don't oblige! j/k

From one international star to another, best of luck to you brother.

P.S.
Thursday, October 27 2005 at 08:00 PM

You should apply to MI. They like splitters.

hey!

Are you complete anywhere yet?

Yes, I'm just really, really lazy.

Don't worry!

Don't worry, john. You'll hear back from SOMEONE soon. :) - KCGF

My favorite!

Right now I'm pretty much in love with Tulane.. but I also have not visited it yet, so that may change in three weeks when I go to NOLA. How about you? What's the front runner? (assuming everyone loooooves you)

congrats

on UVA!

...on the UVA decision. It couldn't have happened to a better Korean child star turned p-dubbing paralegal living in Williamsburg, statistically speaking.

Nice acceptance at UVA... What do you think your top choice is? and there must not be a lot of V100's in Williamsburg, right?

Congrats
Monday, October 02 2006 at 08:00 PM

A belated congrats on UVA acceptance. Awesome man!

Hooray!

Big congratulations! Three enviable acceptances so far, with more to come I'm certain. Do you think if you bring me in your suitcase to GULC anyone will notice? :)

NYU

Awesome. Wish me luck on my NYU app!

Congrats!
Tuesday, January 09 2007 at 07:00 PM

You finally got into NYU!

'
Tuesday, January 09 2007 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, I think I'm decided on Stanford. The money I got from them is too much to turn down. I saw your thread on NYU vs. UVA. I personally think you should go with NYU. It seems like you really wanna live in NYC, and the best time would be law school. Besides, you might love it and NYU would give you the best shot at staying there. Either way, you can't go wrong! Good luck with your choice.

NYU!

damn, 25k sure changes things, huh?

To the above
Thursday, December 21 2006 at 07:00 PM

I'm not sure how to tell you this, but when I say things like "I'm the greatest person in the history of mankind", it's usually not meant to be taken seriously. Usually. Or at least, not taken completely seriously. I am pretty great. Top 5, maybe.

oh no
Thursday, August 25 2005 at 08:00 PM

I was hoping you'd come to NYU. Best of luck at UVA! There is something admirable about shirking the USNews rankings to follow your gut, I know it was a tough choice.

Simple
Thursday, December 21 2006 at 07:00 PM

I liked UVA. I didn't like NYU.
