Although I disagree about the interviews (at least if they are weighted). I wanted to do one, but between work, school, and the nearest available interviewer being hundreds of miles away, it simply wasn't a possibility. I'm sure it's a good feeling to distinguish yourself and make a human connection in what is overwhelmingly a detached and numerically-driven application process, but I would be in big trouble if interviews were expected. Anyway, congratulations on what is already an excellent cycle.
Looks like your cycle is going well. I can see from your cold weather preferences that you are a true fan of skiing. =) Your numbers are certainly very good. Hope you have your top choice for next fall.
I called Ol' Kenny and told him to save me a seat in case anyone backs out and doesn't show for first day of classes.
What's up man?
Haha awesome question... The envelope was relatively flimsy (just a folder with a few sheets of paper inside...easily crammed into my exceptionally small mailbox) so hopefully you'll be fine. Hope that helps, and good luck!
I see you have the envelope specifics... Good luck!
Thanks. From the looks of it, you shouldn't have anything to worry about come Friday. Best of luck!
Wisdom? What does that mean?
Just wanted to add that though there wasn't much in the Columbia envelope -- yep, only some papers -- it did come in a corrugated paper folder, so it wasn't TOO flimsy. That said, my Brooklyn mailman easily folded and stuck it in my apartment. Have fun skiing and good luck!
That's funny. I actually do play drums, but I don't have curly hair and my name's not Wisdom.
Thanks for the comment. Your numbers look good, so I hope you get in - you seem to want it bad enough.
Oh wow, we really are twins. So far, no luck with Columbia. Many New Yorkers seem to have heard already, which is definitely upsetting. BUT, to be fair, I didn't go complete until Jan 4th so don't lose hope based on my lack of word thus far. You could easily hear before me, depending on when you went complete.
It seems like so far most people admitted have higher than our 4.2 indexes. However, most people accepted also seem to have been accepted to Harvard and/or Stanford and/or Yale, leading me to believe that there's got to be another round of acceptances with slightly lower standards after the majority of the HYS people decline. At least I hope so, Columbia's also a top choice for me.
Congratulations on Michigan! It's a great school! I've been there many times because I great up near Ann Arbor. And yes, my last name is Snow!haha
Withdrawing from UW, huh?
You're not reconsidering...
could you withdraw from all the schools with skiing nearby?! J/K, if I had your options I would have done the same. As for me, I'm having a difficult time getting excited about Iowa b/c I don't know if I can stand the lack of mountains. Anyway, congrats on your acceptances and good luch with your others!
I just wanted to say that I am sitting here at work in a nice little office with my office mate, and I am obviously procrastinating the morning away. As I was randomly clicking on people throughout LSN for some enjoyment, I came across your post on the wall of "Hereshopin." It was the one in which you asked her to describe the malleability and pliability of the envelope... Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that this post provided me and my office mate with many minutes of entertainment. You are quite funny. I hope that Columbia pulls through for you after all. In other news, I am extremely jealous of your NU acceptance! If you do decide to withdraw, perhaps you could tell them to consider me despite my LSAT score? Thanks!
More law schools should emulate NULS in requiring an evaluative interview. I have neither the highest LSAT score nor the highest GPA amongst the law school applicants at my college, but sitting over lunch with an esteemed NULS graduate offered me the opportunity to distinguish myself in a non-quantifiable manner. And I was afraid they would reject me because I ordered the Mahi Mahi in Denver.
