Additional info & updates

4/27: Got my umich email address. Now it seems official.

4/23: DECISION MADE! I'M GOING TO MICHIGAN!

4/19: Decision date moving to Monday. This week has sucked.

4/15: Liked Berkeley. Rats. Supposed to call Michigan tomorrow about $ inquiry.

4/12: After travel disasters, I am in Berkeley. The law school is almost as ugly as rumored, but campus is pretty in general, Berkeley seems like a cool town, and the people I've met so far are nice. Tomorrow is the official admit day program.

4/10: Received merit financial aid info. from NYU: $25,000 total. Faxing Berkeley matching scholarship program form today and they said they'd try to give me an answer by April 19th.

4/9: Even though I was just informed of a big email whoopsy I made, I'm leaning strongly towards Penn today.

Excited to go to Berkeley on Wednesday. Although now I'm feeling a little hung up on the fact that 70% of last year's alums work on the Pacific Coast...

4/8: Marked some official withdrawls. Hopefully these will open up space and $ for others!

4/4: Headed to Chicago today. I'll be touring U. of Chicago tomorrow. Then next Wednesday I head to Berkeley for my final law school visit.

UPDATE: Offered Levy Scholarship at Penn. I'm amazed. And even more confused decision wise.

4/1: Scholarship offer from UVA waiting in my mailbox. Most likely not enough to compell me to choose UVA over Michigan offering a similar amount. Going to go visit Chicago on Thursday. Anxiously awaiting Penn's decision on the Levy scholarship. As much as I liked Columbia and NYU, something in my gut tells me my final decision will come down to Michigan and Penn (and maybe Berkeley, but I haven't been there yet).

3/29: Liked Columbia as well. Still very confused about everything. NYC is pretty amazing.

3/26: Liked NYU today. But I'm not a Furman finalist (lady in admissions said they sent out all letters last week), so that likely means no $ from NYU. If I get the awesome scholarship I was invited to apply for at Penn, I really can't see what difference 2 ranking spots really means. Although some students at NYU tried to convince me there's a big difference in the perception of top 5 schools vs. top 10 schools.

3/24: Really liked Penn. Now it's Michigan and Penn at the top of the pack of places I've visited. Changing ranks to reflect only places that I've visited and places I plan on withdrawing from.

3/21: George Washington also so-so. Oh, and I realized today that the class I sat in on yesterday at Georgetown was taught by the author of the Patriot Act. *Add your own thoughts here*

3/20: Liked Virginia a lot. Georgetown just so-so.

3/16: Spring break starts today. In the next two weeks, I will be visiting Virginia, Georgetown, GW, Penn (admitted students day), NYU, and Columbia (admitted students day). Crazy.

3/13: Need to dig out all of my school reply forms. I think I have 3 (possibly 4) places I can now cross off my list. At least that's a start.
I wish Harvard would just go ahead and reject me so that I'd have all my decisions in.

3/10: Loving Michigan madly.
Got an email invite to apply for the Levy Scholars Program at Penn. Exciting!

3/6: Leaving tomorrow afternoon for Michigan. Going to the official admitted students programming on Th, Fri, Sat morning. Also meeting with someone in another dept. to talk about joint-degree opportunities.

Emailed NYU to see if they could tell me when all Furman finalist notifications would be sent out. I'm getting impatient. I want all the information from all schools so I can start processing it!

3/2: "Alternate" for Georgetown Dean's Scholarship (I'll get a final answer by 4/9). Virginia said they'll tell scholarship amts. by March 31st.

3/1: Labeled my current choices in clumps (without regard to $, which will probably play a factor, and before visits). I also reserve the right to change on a whim.
Hoping to hear about scholarships from Georgetown and Virginia this week.

2/22: Chicago just called...I'm in!
Heard last week from Georgetown that I'm a finalist for their Dean's Scholar scholarship and Wash U is considering me for a scholarship as well. Also got an email last week or the week before about Berkeley's "matching" scholarship application. Intriguing.

Scholarship offers are for the 3-year total amount (listing merit scholarships only)

I'm glad you're on here; I've been reading your plan and getting excited for you when you get in places. Best of luck with the rest of your cycle!

awesome
Sunday, December 11 2005 at 07:00 PM

congrats on Duke--I bet you get $$ from them in a few weeks!

sorry
Sunday, December 11 2005 at 07:00 PM

to completely spam your wall with ridiculous messages--but based on other people's profiles and scores and whatnot, I bet you get a full ride + housing from GWU. That would be freakin' amazing!

congratulations
Sunday, December 11 2005 at 07:00 PM

on GW and Michigan. That is so funny about Virginia. You, Nick Fogg, and I got the update email on the same day. Coincidence? I think not...

BTW
Sunday, December 11 2005 at 07:00 PM

does the GW money turn your eye a bit from Berkeley?

I got an email today - it's a typo in the letter. You just have to tell them you would live there by 2/22 and it's not even a commitment to attend.

Hey, did you get the email I sent you about 2 weeks ago? It was probably auto-diverted to your spam folder. It's from the email address below:

deferred = hold
Sunday, December 11 2005 at 07:00 PM

in my book. They both say, "hm, we're not sure if you are good enough yet, but we'll get around to it...later...sucker." But yeah, I got the same email you did. Go us!

I didn't run into you this whole weekend. I kept my eye out and kept hearing, "oh, there's another girl here from that school, right?" but never managed to find you! Cheers,

Saturday, September 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

I haven't found any great prospects yet, only slightly OK ones. I've been using craigslist to search, which is OK but frustrating because a lot of people repost their listings every freakin' day. What about you?

...
Sunday, December 11 2005 at 07:00 PM

I am so proud of you!!! I have no right to be whatsoever, but you are amazing!

Northwestern $

I'm really interested in attending Northwestern (Fall '08)... did you do anything special in the application process with them, did they offer you a scholarship immediately, etc, etc? Were there any strings attached to the money? (Right now I'm testing between 171 - 176 on practice tests) Thanks for the help and congrats!
