Extra Curricular Information

I applied straight out of undergrad, and I graduated early, so I was very young while applying.

Happy about the sweep and about YLS (especially since I applied so late in the cycle), but chose HLS because it was a better fit. Yale felt too small for me.

Deferred for a year.

Scholarship $ is merit-based.

Additional info & updates

Notable fee waivers: Columbia, U.Chicago, UPenn, U. Michigan, UVA, Duke, Northwestern, Georgetown, UCLA, Vandy... others

I was originally planning on applying to NYU and Stanford as well, but with the early news from HLS, I decided to save the $180 in application fees!

TITLE REQUIRED
Saturday, June 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

well i dont think my academic adventurism is going to win me any points, but i'm hoping. do your preferences reflect the rankings?

Good luck on your apps!
Monday, May 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

Not that you need it. =)

Thursday, July 05 2007 at 08:00 PM

M = MIT, although I guess HYP is more common. Wow, nice numbers!

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

congrats
Saturday, June 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

It was pretty informal. He started with "whats been keeping you busy lately". Then asked me 2 or 3 questions about my application. I think I kinda babbled and definitely didn't sound too bright. We'll see how important these things are.

Congrats!

Congrats on Boalt! It's nice to hear something before Thanksgiving.

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

On Harvard!

CONGRATS!
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

ON ALL YOUR ACCEPTANCES!!! ESPECIALLY HLS!

Hey!
Sunday, November 18 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on all your acceptances! Just wondering because your #s look a lot like someone I know - are you F.G.? Congrats regardless! I'm sure I'll see you at some acceptance weekends!

Congrats
Saturday, June 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

on your acceptances! Now hurry up and finish applying to YLS and SLS so you can make it a clean sweep! :-)

I'm also down to the Stanford and Yale apps. I understand your struggles ;)

Down to one
Thursday, July 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

It looks like both of us are now down to Yale. I can only hope my cycle goes as well as yours has so far. Is the Yale 250 holding you up? p.s. You seem to be very impressive beyond your numbers. You need to get that 250 in and complete your clean sweep.

Hey!
Sunday, November 18 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats to you too! You have some amazing schools to choose from already! I am still waiting on a few more schools which are my first choices so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Is your first choice Harvard?

I understand...
Thursday, July 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

I freaked out and submitted something that probably wasn't ready because I couldn't stand waiting anymore.

Congrats! Please Withdraw
Saturday, January 12 2008 at 07:00 PM

Can you withdraw now from Boalt please if you want to go to H?

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

On Chicago!

Congrats
Thursday, July 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

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

On Columbia!

Congrats!
Thursday, July 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

on the sweep. Not a bad cycle. Any decision yet?

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

On Yale!

Why no Stanford?
Sunday, March 01 2009 at 07:00 PM

Just curious as to why you didn'nt apply to Stanford...or NYU or Penn, for that matter. Not that you needed to, but I'm curious about your thought-process.
