Congrats! But I am sure you knew you were an auto-admit there.

Dates
Tuesday, March 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

BTW, when did you send out your apps/go complete etc?

UT
Tuesday, March 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

I feel I am borderline between a acceptance and a WL. We will see. I hope the degree GPA pulls me up a bit. Yes, I am interested in Ent Law... which is why I would LOVE UT. PS: You will get into Vandy too.

You don't need to worry.
Tuesday, March 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

The 170 will carry you in.

Thx/Answer
Saturday, June 16 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks :). Appreciate it. As to Cad. Ab., basically Canadian Aboriginal, which is equivalent to Native American, except Canadian. Some schools do consider it a URM (as they consider all native peoples of North America to be under the same scope), others don't. It's highly dependent on individual school preferences.

thanks!
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

you too... no georgetown app?

G'town
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

I actually think you have a very good shot at getting in off the WL by spring (assuming you don't get in outright) 170 seems to be the magic number, and it's not too late!

GULC
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

if we both end up there, you owe me a beer. :)

GULC
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

no way you get a flat-out rejection. you're a waitlist at worst.

I went to the school with the most men's basketball titles... and it isn't in North Carolina. :)

good luck i second the gulc app maybe we will all be there next year

Same!
Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

Well howdy to you too, twinkie! Can't say I'm sure how I feel about your stealing my numbers... :) Seriously though, good luck!

Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

I grew up in Arkansas and might even want to practice in Little Rock someday. It's part of the reason I ED'd UVA - great school with southern cred. Is G-town your top choice?

Similar boat
Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

I hear ya - I'm expecting a lot of waitlistings myself. You should still have your pick of a fine litter, though. Even GULC is quite friendly toward those scoring 170+.

thanks
Friday, October 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks. Your numbers are close to mine so I wouldnt be surprised if you heard from GULC soon. Good luck!

The "H" is in place of the ranking I have given each school. I ranked the law schoolsthat I applied to in my profile and selected the "hide choice" setting to make my rankings invisible. Hope that helps out... Good luck with your application cycle!!!

Georgetown
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

so I got in and our numbers are almost identical... you have a good shot!

i know you, too

Tennessee is great! Thanks for the post, and good luck with the rest of your cycle.

Re: Vanderbilt
Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 07:00 PM

To be honest, the location in Nashville was the best for me since it was close to family and where I wanted to end up practicing. However, Vanderbilt would have probably ended up top on my list regardless once I visited. The atmosphere, the people, the career services... they're all incredible! I would really encourage you to visit if you're giving it serious consideration. Also, check out the Class of 2011 Facebook page at <a href="http://vanderbilt.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6634896370" title="http://vanderbilt.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6634896370" class="data">http://vanderbilt.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6634896370</a> It's run by the current 1Ls and probably will give you more well-rounded answers than I could alone. But most of all, just note that our class is so proud and enthusiastic about our school--I think that speaks volumes in itself. Good luck!

GULC
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

it went really well and was really casual. i had a young guy who graduated there in '06 and we chatted for an hour about the school, my goals, his experiences with D.C. and the faculty, and just life in various cities in general. i told you they'd like you. :)

Re: Traffic Tickets
Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 07:00 PM

Most certainly did not (I have a couple) and wouldn't unless specifically asked to. However, even if you did, I think the school would just laugh unless you had an absurd number, or something really scary.

haha
Friday, November 30 2007 at 07:00 PM

you're too cute! yay lawww school

GULC
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

did you interview yet? you better get in so you can go to the admit weekend in january :)

FYI
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

once you get into georgetown you have to buy me a beer and wear a UCLA basketball shirt.

Cornell
Saturday, September 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

They were very friendly and I believe they are expecting the calls. Hopefully you will get better news then i did.

GULC good luck!
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

the admitted students site didn't become available until like a week ago for everyone, so it's hard to say. I got my letter 3 days after it was dated and I live on the opposite coast.

gulc
Monday, November 05 2007 at 07:00 PM

I went decision at gtown on the 19th i leave on Saturday so i really hope it comes by Friday. The admitted student site says 4 days after decision but i have heard it can take up to a week, so don't panic at 4 days.

Thursday, November 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

fair question! i caught a 6:30 AM train home this morning. any news from GULC?

Hello there
Friday, December 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

Mademoiselle, t'en fais si je te salue? J'espere que tout marche pour toi et profite de cette opportunite pour te souhaiter "Joyeux Noel, Bonne et Heureuse Annee 2008". I hope that you understand me since your major was french. Good luck with the cycle and Have a great holiday.

J'ai pas encore decide...
Friday, December 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

Non, j'ai pas encore fait aucun choix d'ecole de droit puisque c'est assez tot. Mais j'espere dans les jours a venir, je serai en mesure de le faire. De nouveau, je te souhaite de bonnes saisons festivales.

Thank you!
Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the well-wishing, and good luck to you, too! It's good to see another TN TLSer on this site. Out of the schools that have accepted me, I'm starting to prefer Berkeley. I really hope to get into NYU. It would be nice to have UVA as one of my options as well, since I have a cousin who is a 1L there and it's within driving distance of the family home. What are your top choices?

gulc
Monday, November 05 2007 at 07:00 PM

I am starting to think WL ugh

Same to you
Wednesday, December 26 2007 at 07:00 PM

I live in DC and I think Georgetown is a great school, but watch out for the pink pleated chino wearing d-bags ;)

g-town
Wednesday, November 14 2007 at 07:00 PM

yea still havent heard, i'm at home though till the 1st. I'm assuming i'm a WL cause I cant log into the admitted student site. But, we'll see...

Congrats!
Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

On W&L, and I'm sure your great news from GULC, too...once you finally get to open it!

Sorry
Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

to hear about the waitlist at GULC, but it looks like you've gotten some great news since then - congrats!!!

congrats
Tuesday, September 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on all your acceptances!

Guess we're not numbers twins anymore...
Monday, October 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on BC and GW! At least you're on GULC's priority WL - means you still have a solid shot there.

re: WashU
Thursday, August 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thank you for the congratulations. I chose WashU over GW after visiting both schools. My visit to WashU went really well. The admissions people were the most genuine and welcoming adcoms at any school I visited. I also took the time to speak with many students (not just the ones they assign you to meet) and every one raved about how much they enjoy school and how good their career opportunities were. On the other hand, my visit to GW was a disaster. The admissions people were short and uninformed and the law school was so crowded and impersonal. The real kicker was the mixed reactions I got from students. While some liked it there, most complained about problems with the school and career services. I had one student flat out tell me her whole study group hoped to transfer to Georgetown. It was easier to eliminate GW than it was to eliminate Georgetown. I really fell in love with Georgetown. At the end of the day, I wouldn't go there PT and pay full price when I had other good options. Sorry for blabbering on...Are you leaning towards any of your schools?

re: washu
Thursday, August 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

Good luck the rest of the way. Hope to see you next year if you end up choosing Washu

WashU
Tuesday, January 15 2008 at 07:00 PM

Ya I wouldn't go to Emory either with 90k from WashU- great school! My decision to go to Emory still isnt official, but I really like the school. If you tell them it's your #1 and will absolutely go if they can compete financially you would think they'd help you out (esp w/ a 170). I dunno if I would go to Vandy if I got in...going to visit in June. You?

UNC
Tuesday, January 15 2008 at 07:00 PM

I love Chapel Hill, but I'm just ready for something new. I'm guessing you went/go to WFU? Probably the nicest campus of the NC 3. Good luck with Vanderbilt. Cashville is awesome!!

Congrats!
Saturday, January 05 2008 at 07:00 PM

You have a ton of great options lined up for you. However, did you just now hear about the Wake scholarship today?

WFU
Saturday, January 05 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks. I'm hopeful, because I was really impressed with Wake but I may not be able to attend if the FA situation doesn't work out. I was at the ASD as well: awkward person #77 without a collared shirt that was fielding all kinds of questions once people learned I was from the area. I assume you got the same stuff? Lots of good choices for you -- congrats on your excellent cycle!

GU
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

looking that way right now. I'm gonna make a decision for sure by June 2, GU's 2nd deadline. until then, just waiting to see how it plays out.

re: congrats
Sunday, July 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! You too, looks like you have some great options. For me it's between WUSTL and Emory, plus I'm staying on the Vandy WL. Have you made a decision yet?

Congrats!
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Georgetown!

RE: next year
Friday, October 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

It's official: GULC. It appears you are heading there as well. Congrats

GU
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

you got in! you owe me a beer while wearing a DUKE shirt! :)

vandy!?
Sunday, July 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

When did they call to accept you? Congrats on Gtown, that\'s great.

Thanks!
Sunday, July 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

Looks like we both got what we wanted. Good luck in the fall!

Hey G-town classmate!!!
Wednesday, June 25 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey man, congrats on GULC. Which section are you in? I got Section 2, and from what I here the best section to be in. See you at orientation.
