on GTown! That's some pretty result.
Congrats at Georgetown! Miss seeing you over at the other spot...hopefully a couple more acceptances will ease your fear and bring you back. Keep doing well!
congrats on georgetown! it gives me hope that one of my numbers twins has gotten in! don't know what's taking them so long on my app, but i'm crossing my fingers in the meantime. I sense many more acceptances in your future....
Congrats on Georgetown. Maybe I'll see you there next fall.
thanks towlie :)... i hope you get yours soon
Thanks, but it's really just a tit for tat. You got Gtown first, then I did. Now I got Boalt and soon you will too. I'm sure of it, especially given your GPA. I know it's easier to say than believe, but just give it time...and as always, keep me informed.
you give us hope!
Hey, congrats on your acceptances thus far! I'm sure you'll be getting lots more! I'd be interested in hearing what you learn from Cornell today (I got the same message on the status check)... keep us all posted! Thanks!
you so much for your encouragement! You sure are good at predicting =). Freezing cold weather here I come!!!
i'm still applying to cardozo - hoping for a scholarship or something. i'm not sure what i would do between Georgetown and Cardozo. I want to be in NY - but it's Georgetown! I'm still waiting for some other schools in NY though.
I'm not leaving you behind!! You just don't know yet...plus, I'd trade some fin aide to make sure I had some classmates I liked...just wait, I'll tell'em I want Towlie in my class! (not that they'll listen to me, or that you need it)
if you really wanted to be in new york -- would you choose fordham over georgetown?
haha, right? no matter what happens for the rest of the year, we've got a GREAT backup!
Thanks so much - it does feel great to know what I am doing next year. Best of luck in the admissions cycle, perhaps I'll see you at Georgetown next fall =)
Maybe I'll see you there!
That's only because you abandoned us on LSD!! That takes a lot of will power...I think I will write to some deans myself and tell them the amazing will power you have :o )
for the well-wishes on UVA. My status changed on 12/2 saying that a decision had been made and I received the letter today on the 5th. Best of luck on all your apps.
Still may apply to USC and UCLA as well as a few more schools. I wish I had a clue as to where I might end up. Reason Pepperdine is the only West Coast school at this point is the scholarship opp. Stanford would be great but a real long shot. Good luck with everything. Hopefully we both end up with a lot of options to weigh.
So you've discovered a formula for our messages....now if only you could work out that cold fusion doo-hickey : ) I won't say it then (although I'm thinking it), but thanks.
We are number twins, bro- two white guys with the same GPA and LSAT. Congrats on Georgetown. Not sure what it means to get a Penn hold- ie deferred until regular decision pool? Without a hold do we NOT need to submit our fall transcipts?
Congrats on Georgetown. I guess we both have to suffer through the Penn hold =). Good luck on the rest of your schools, I hope NYU will contact you soon.
Yeah, I was pretty surprised by both USC and Gtown! It feels good to have those acceptances--I will keep my fingers crossed for you on USC and all of your other schools :)
Thanks for the kind words. You're kicking butt this cycle Towlie and it's not even Christmas yet!
Are you as frustrated as I am about not hearing back yet from NYU? A ton of RD people have heard, while many EA applicants have not, including me. WTF? If it's bad news, at least let us know!
I'll keep you posted if I hear anything...
That was super sweet of you :0 ) Sorry it took me so long to get back to you; I've been recovering from a surgery. How've you been? Hope you have a great holiday season! X
You're in my lucky number 13 spot....except for the last week, I've been at 13 at the time of every acceptance ; ) I hope it brings you luck; and thanks, I'm feeling great. X
Yeah, well I'll try the URM for whatever it might get me. :) And congrats on Georgetown!!! GTOWN is awesome! Shows how random this whole process is...
Hardly. I do not regret switching to regular, as I felt I had a valid reason to. Will I be upset if I do not get in as a result of it? Yeah, probably. But I can live with that. Life goes on, and if Gtown is the only T14 that ends up accepting me, I'll still be way beyond happy. In fact, looking back, I may wind up happier with my options now then I would have been before. Hope that answers your question.
Hey, it's one of the only days that I get to sit and do absolutely nothing -- might as well finish some applications! :) I have a feeling I'll be in the same boat as you with applications with all the deferrals, but congrats on GULC. I'm sure I'll be checking your profile as much as mine now. Good luck with the rest of your apps!
I know, riiiight?! And you applied like a month earlier than me! They also called me complete on 10/31, even though everything they needed was available when I applied 10/11. I wonder if that knocked us out of EA-ers or something? I'll e-mail in January if no word by then. Hey, are you going to the January admitted students day for Georgetown?
I'm at home for Christmas break, so I would only assume that both rejections/deferrals are waiting for me in my campus mailbox.
That's pretty crazy. I hope they accept more than one.. or at least, accept me ;-) As far as soft factors though, I might have you beat, but I guess we'll see, huh? Cause soft factos is all we have to go on now.. Best of luck.
Thanks for the words of encouragement...and congrats on Georgetown, et al. Got a top choice yet? Looking forward to following your future successs.
A number of people have asked me why I haven't withdrawn. My gf goes to GULC so I am obliged to consider them. However, it looks like it's between Y and S right now...
I don't know yet if I'm going in January of not. It'll depend on whether or not I can get a ride down from school or not. But I'll let you know if I decide to go. I take it you're going?
I'm going with "best available," frankly. I'm partial to the joint degree programs at GW and Minnesota- that might sway my opinion some. And I've love to stay in California, or go back to D.C.
Gtown is most def on my list. I really like DC and know lots of great people that went there. As for Boalt, the schools seems really great, but I need to visit to see if it fits me. In the end, I think I'm going to go to the best school that offers me the best fin aide package. I really like the idea of living in Cali for a few years, since I don't know if I'd get a chance to do it otherwise. At the same time, I hate flying...but I doubt something like that would stop me from going somewhere that I really loved.
Hey- I noticed that you are going to be at the Georgetown weekend in January...I'm also going - are you planning on staying with a host? I'm just curious what other students are planning on doing... Either way, see you there!! Sarah
Thanks! Your numbers look pretty good yourself. Let's hope that the Cali schools are kind to us UA students. Good luck!
thanks for the advice! i attached a concise, sincere addendum to the applications i have sent out and i cant do much else until i take/get the results for the feb administration :o( but i'll hopefully do much better then. btw, congrats on your acceptances!
Thanks for the comment lucky7. You're right, they don't have ED programs, just EA. I swear I entered them in as EA, must be a glitch somewhere! I fixed them. Congrats on your acceptances as well!
way to go!!!!
: * X
I think Georgetown is at the top of my list so far but I'm really waiting to hear from those final schools, I'm really confused as to what I'm going to do. It will also matter with financial packages from any of the schools. Enjoy the Georgetown thing this weekend! I wanted to go but it's the first weekend of school for me and it'll be too hard to get away. Have fun!
Congrats on the USC acceptance and the invite for the scholarship! Hopefully I'll be receiving good news from them soon too!
Hey! I just received my USC acceptance when I came home today. :-D Funny how hours earlier I had just messaged you about it. I'm in the same boat as you... I want to practice in Cali, so USC is a GREAT option--esp. in sunshiney SoCal! I'm not sure what my first choice is at this point... it's a toss-up btw Cornell and USC (any thoughts?), but I have quite a few more schools I'm waiting to hear back from... so we'll see! Have a great time at DC at the end of this month!
Thanks for your congrats and your two cents! Btw, I am actually a chica.... haha, I know this alias is rather deceiving, but it's the first thing that popped into my head when I was trying to think of an incognito name.
I think I'll stay on at least through Feb. and see if anything changes. I don't think I will wait til May. They say that they won't go through them again til then, but a friend of mine got off the waitlist less than 2 weeks after being put on it at NW...2 LSAT points made the diff. for her of being on waitlist and being in with some pretty nice money. How about you?
Hey man, thanks for the encouragement, and congrats on the great schools you got into. Yes I have already thought of that. Over the summer I would enter an emersion school for Spanish. Middlebury in VT. Then next year, i would probibly study some more and retake the LSAT again and just save money and work. I was also accepted into a study abroad program at Middlebury starting the summer of 2007. I could do that if I decided to wait 2 more years. It will be depressing again if I don't get in. But i'll figure something out. Hey after that much time, my oldest LSAT probibly won't even count so that is pretty kool.
Congrats to you too on that, though I am jealous of your Georgetown admission, I hope I get one too!
Yeah, I know several people from that location you speak of. Good luck with everything!
NASA intern?! Hahahahahaha- me too! Kudos to you. Were you at a center, or working from school?
you are my numbers twin :) congrats on the georgetown acceptance, i'm sure the others will be coming along shortly. maybe i'll run into you in dc at the end of jan.
Dear "?" Thanks for the comment. I re-read the email and decided you are right. Kind of funny cuz I just sent them an extra reccomendation and an essay today not even thinking I was deferred. Ah well, I changed the status.
A KAMPer too? That's awesome! Even if my "soft" factors may be better than yours on paper (or at least YOU think they are), it's all about how you present them. Seriously, best of luck. I hope you do awesome!
I worked at HQ, doing publications, et al - nice little combination of liberal arts and science for my overly diverse resume, I suppose. It was a blast.
...I guess Stanford doesn't deserve us either : P
That's great! It absolutely is about finding the place where you "fit," which can be incredibly difficult, so you should definitely attend if you feel that way about GULC. I have already accepted that the entirety of my legal education is going to be covered by loans... a bit scary, but something that is clearly worth it in the end. I really warmed to Penn when I toured it before applying, so that may have set a high standard for G'town.... which is certainly excellent in a number of ways, but just felt wrong for me.
I see you reaallly liked Gtown...I'm SUPER happy for you! I have to go down to DC sometime this semester and check it out. You've made me so anxious to go check it out. :o )
Hey bud, I'm a wildcat also. It's good to see that our alum is having success. We've applied to a lot of similar schools. Let me know where you're leaning when you get the chance. Congrats!
rock on! congrats!
thanks! i had really strong recs and strong LORs...ill be rooting for you to get in with me!
I'm hoping for a good school on the west coast (UCLA, USC), but I'd settle for in-state at Texas. I have a friend whose 1L at GULC. Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for the encouragement, bro. Gtown wasn't in the stars for me, but my friend loves it there. I'm sure you'll feel the same. I'll cross my fingers for USC.
Good job with UCLA! Good luck with Boalt and the rest of the deferred schools, but I think you got a great option with Gtown already =).
Boalt is definitely one of my top favorites, due to the in state tuition and top IP program.. just that it would be 3 more years at the same place, which is not a bad thing, but I could explore a change =).
I'm from the same town in NJ (west side '99). Which HS and what yr. did you graduate? Interesting if we know eachother...
on UCLA! Good luck on y our deferrals.
You are kicking ass! I'm happy you liked Georgetown so much. Are you still gonna go there? That JD/LLM at USC/LSE seems very tempting...
Congrats on UCLA!! Any chance you'll decide not to go to GULC? I'm still waiting on fin aide decisions and my visiting places come next month, I'll keep you updated, though.
Thanks for the advice. I know how the process works, however I don't have your #s, so I have to hope on more than "the way it works"... you wouldn't understand, with your #s you know you won't have a problem, the rest of us have to believe there is "some other way" even if its not necessarily true. Thanks anyways, congrats and best of luck :)
... I don't have any other "strategy" to pursue, being on my boat sucks, there is no strategy, it is what it is, this is why my "please withdraw from USC" plead is all I have :( Congrats again!
You're makin me feel bad. I wasn't trying to hurt your feelings or dash your dreams, just after seeing you post "please withdraw" on people's pages I thought I'd add some perspective for you and others who are doing that. But don't say I wouldn't understand.. I'd love it if every single person withdrew their Berkeley admission so they'd have to admit me.. so, really, I feel your pain (though not as severly, I guess). In any event, good luck. Keep on fighting the good fight.
Thanks, Lucky! Yes, I definitely agree that being in DC would be amazing...but I still haven't made up my mind. I am planning a visit to the campus in March, though, so I may fall in love. :) Have you decided on GT? Will Boalt change your preference at all? Good luck and congratulations!
good luck on berkeley, it seems to me that they'd be really losing out if they didnt accept you :)
I had my school send my updated transcript to LSDAS and all the schools that I applied to received an updated report. Congrats on all your acceptances and good luck on the rest of this long, long process.
Glad to know im not the only one that berkeley messed with. GL getting in, hopefully we were both on the Cal "inform admission later" list.
Congrats on Duke! It's my alma mater... loved the place... definitely let me know if you have any questions about the area, etc. :-D
Hey, Congrats on your great acceptances!! Based on a cursory reading of your profile, it sounds like GULC is your number 1 as of right now. I'm in the same boat, but I am still waiting to hear back from Duke (was deferred too). I ask myself which one I would go to (assuming I get in Duke). How did you make your decision?
have become a Duke. Nice! See, the good stuff just keeps rolling in for you! =) There's more to come, I'm sure.
Sorry, man--I wanted to keep the dreamn alive, but I felt bad holding the Georgetown space when I know other people are waiting for it. : )
One thing to think about... I was surfing Craigslist and 1-bedroom apartments near Duke U are $450... studios in DC are $1000... :P
Hey. Thanks for the nice comment. I see you were accepted to UCLA, congrats. I actually attend UCLA right now as an undergrad and the Law school is amazing. Its beautiful, the law library really is amazing and there are always soo many functions taking place at the school. I actually saw a flyer posted for lunch with Michael Dukakis! well if you attend there, I am sure you wont be dissapointed.
If you haven't visited USC, I suggest you do so. I haven't been to Georgetown, but I've been at USC the past 4 years and it was great. Funny thing is, I might be going to Arizona for law school. If you have any questions about USC, feel free to e-mail me. (BTW - don't ask me about UCLA. Just don't go there. Period. haha j/k)
Yeah, with my LSAT I'm pretty shocked about Boalt. I think it might have something to do with me having been in the Peace Crops. For whatever reason though- I'm flattered but know admission is unlikely and pretty much have my heart set on U of A anyway. Good luck!
... on Duke.
That JD/MA looks very attractive, congrats! What would you do with the Econ. degree?
Just wondering... did you have to take the GRE to get into that MA program?
for the words of support. And congrats to you on some great options -- I'd give anything to be in at Duke. Where do you think you're headed?
Well, if I have to choose from the options I've got right now, then probably Illinois. Cardozo can only compete if they give me more $$. And for some reason I'm just not feeling it for WUSTL. Georgetown would be sweet. And again, soooooooo jealous about Duke. Good luck to you.
I'm leaning toward NYU and UVa. They're so different though it's going to be hard to decide.
Yeah, it was definitely great news from Duke, I just wish I had known sooner. The admitted student's day is coming up fast so I need to make up my mind if I want to visit. I guess I'm just a little reluctant about spending the $500 on the flight. As for Berkeley, I am happy that I at least got that deferral, but I don't know if I would pick it over UCLA at this point. Is that crazy? I am planning a trip to UCLA over spring break so that should help me decide.
Is there really nothing we can do?????
Looks like you've got some nice opportunities. On the Duke v. Georgetown topic, I chose Duke because of location and cost of living. I also preferred a smaller school. That being said, the thought of being in DC was very tempting and probably would have been moreso if I were a single and younger. Good luck.
well, I'm really not sure. It's definitely between Gtown, Michigan and Northwestern, and of those three I'm waiting for both financial aid offers and I'm visiting each of them in the coming weeks. After that, hopefully I'll be able to make a better informed decision : ) congrats on all your schools, and good luck with those waitlists!
to congratulate you on penn! seeing as you are my number twin ive been following you since day one and im thrilled to hear you got into penn, admittedly for selfish reasons as well ;) are you going to go with Penn over GULC in the end? congrats
Dude! Way to emerge from deferral purgatory! First Duke and now Penn? You're giving me hope, man! Many congrats!
Great job on Penn! Now, if they could only get back to me =P.
i hope you are right about the penn call coming my way- waitlisted at Mich (and im guessing gtown) makes me think my app is very borderline, but the Cornell admit and the Columbia/Harv lack of rejection makes me think i have a chance. oh the torture. anyway you have some amazing options, i was sure Penn was done with their admissions... if money is a such a strong factor, youre damn luck to get that cash from a school like UCLA. you cant lose. best of luck bro ~n
Wow, congratulations-- 2 for 2 so far on the deferrals! I know it's last-minute, but are you going to the Admitted Students' Weekend? Penn's way cooler than G'town : )
Hi! Congrats on penn!!! That's so exciting! We have very similar numbers so you are giving me a little hope! You are pretty much all done that's great!
on all your success so far! Quick question, though. Did you send any additional materials to the schools that deferred/waitlisted you, and if so, what where they? Were they targeted to the specific schools, or did you send them to multiple places? Thanks a lot for your help, and good luck.
What kind of essay did you send to Penn? Was it the Why Penn or diversity essay? Something else? I am assuming you also submitted letters of continued interest and additional recs. Anything else other than those? I ask only because it has worked so well for you so far... As for me, my numbers are very similar to yours, although the results seem less impressive. I'll put it all up someday, but with my 3 waitlists (UMich, Columbia and Duke), it seems like the cycle will drag on forever.
Are you going to GULC then? I am more than a little envious. Congrats!
UPenn is going to be hard to turn down; especially if there's a real chance you'll attend Wharton. Either way, it sounds like you'll be happy though. Good luck with the decision!
Congrats! As I see it, I'd choose Penn over G-town without visiting (smaller size, better placement).
Hadn't checked ur file for a while. UPenn, needless to say, is awesome. You are set man...unless...NYU and Virg. and Cornell comes through...which they might =)
Congrats! I don't know what to think of the school for me though. I don't know very much about it, but just got back from seeing GULC and NYU...didn't like GULC at all (although the people were great) and really liked NYU (though I'm not sure if enough to see myself going there). Penn is the only money I've received so far, so I'm thinking of taking a little trip down to check it out. What's making you like Penn over GULC so much? Granted, I didn't really like the place, but I thought you did. X
Hey Lucky: It took me a while to get back to you. But I entirely agree with you about the illogical emphasis on the US News. 90% of these people are drones.
Wow, PENN!!! Total awesome-ness!!! I'm happy for ya! :-D
way to go, lucky!! very happy for you... congrats!
Whatever happened to Georgetown? Did you change your mind because you got admitted into a higher ranked school? I thought the rankings did not matter to you.
Check your page. I sent you a nice response :-)
Too bad you didn't like it, but I'm glad you withdrew. :) Good luck with your decision man. Can't really go wrong between Penn, Georgetown, and (potentially) Berkeley. I read your reason for Penn. I wish your family the best.
So my NYU rejection makes it official: I'm headed to Philly! Hope to see you next August : )
My chances are looking ore and more slim consiering these high numbered rejects. I dont get it. AND your extra currics look real good. I'm still wishing. . . . . . Goodluck!! Maybe I'll see you in Penn!
I'm hoping I end up with an acceptance. Wouldn't really call it a "lock" but it may be more likely than a reject. Maybe 51-49 - ha. But I have taken into consideration the first wave of rejects that have been already sent out. Happy to see that I haven't received anything in the mail from them -- yet. Well, thanks for the words of encouragement!! Goodluck again!! And I know, Penn isn't bad at all, I'd be fine with Penn.
Congrats on making your decision. Good luck at Penn.
Unless there's some serious money thrown my way, I'm planning on attending Boalt. I had a really, really great time on admit day, and all the current students are awesome. I really dug the vibe (and it was different from undergrad).
We're going to be classmates next year! It feels so good knowing where your going to be next year, doesn't it? See you in Philly in the fall!
Must feel good to have pulled the trigger. As it stands I may see you next fall at Penn. I went recently and felt very comfortable with students and faculty/administration. I have to make the decision by the 24th, so I'll let you know. Congrats on already having made it!!
You're probably right, but I'm still waiting on a few more things... esp. from UPENN.
Thanks so much. I am still in a little bit of shock after the call from Dean Meeker. But I am definitely leaning in Penn's direction.
I'll be seeing you at Penn!! Went to NYU, loved the city...the people were better than they were last time I went, but it still seemed sort of forced. I saw a dorm room for like 1500 a month and thought I could never live there and overall just think I would have a better time at Penn. So great to have a decision! Now I'm looking into housing? What are your plans?
do you know where I can find the rates and options on line? I could be totally missing it, but I don't see it on their website. : (
thanks a bunch. I actually have no idea what I am doing for housing right now. I just wanted to have all the info. At this point I am trying to swing an apartment off campus, but we'll see how that goes with the financials. Thanks again! X
for the Texas congrats -- and congrats to you on Penn!! Onward!!
Just wanted to say CONGRATS on Penn and the rest of your awesome acceptances! Best of luck! =)
YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!! You are great, have a GREAT time in LS! Any chance Boalt would be able to lure you to The Bay? Hope so!
those are impressive accepts how'd you pull off all of those free waivers?
i decided on upenn instead... i like that school THAT much :) see you in the fall!
Congrats on Gtown...I'm sure it's just the first of a long list for you! X
