good luck to us! what are you thinking you'll do right now? Im visiting UVA next week.

Still not sure...
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

I think I am leaning towards UVA, but I am far from decided. I don't think I'll have a chance to visit, so let me know what you think. Penn is definitely still in the running, but I wasn't overly impressed with Philly. I'm shocked you didn't get in there, but it looks like you have some great options. Congrats and good luck with the rest of the cycle.

Penn question

Hey I saw a post of yours on LSD where you said Penn was upping its class size from 250 to 280. Where did you hear this?

Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

This was per my conversation with Dean Fitts. I am pretty sure about the size (280), but I can't recall if it is planned for this year or sometime in the near future.

I actually sent quite a bit of supplemental info to Harvard, including a Why Harvard? essay, a diversity statement, and an additional LOR. I should have submitted most of this the first time around, so I was actually glad for the deferral because it allowed me to do it. I haven't heard anything back yet, but I'm still hopeful.

Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

The deadline was the April 7th deadline for the Levy (which I have recently gotten extended because I haven't receive Penn's finaid package). I notified Yale via email, but never got a response. I also emailed them yesterday to let them know of the extension to the deadline, but apparently I was too late ;)

Dear Melicretes: Hello. First and foremost, I want to wish you a hearty congratulations on your acceptances. And just to let you know, I'm rooting for your deferred status at Harvard to turn into an acceptance! ;) Sincerely, Ek Nazara

Wow, thanks for the good luck wish. I would certainly love to be in Cambridge this fall. I know it's a long way off, but best of luck to you when you beginning applying for law schools. You certainly seem to be off to a good start.

Heading to UVA

I just got back from a trip to UVA and loved it. Barring a miracle at Harvard, I'll be in C'ville this fall.
