Additional info & updates

Columbia -- Rejection: Regular envelope, single sheet. Arrived on 1/31.

NYU -- Rejection: Ominously thin envelope.

Fordham -- Acceptance: E-mail from Asst. Dean John Chalmers on 1/30. Hard copy in the mail. No mention of scholarship money in e-mail. Received letter saying that I didn't qualify for any financial aid in Mid-Feb.

Emory -- Acceptance: Big while envelope arrived on 1/30/06, but was dated 1/12 and postmarked 1/19. Scholarship letter enclosed with admissions letter. Offered $7,500 per year, $22,500 overall. Both letters signed by Asst. Dean Lynell Cadray.

Brooklyn -- Acceptance: E-mail from Sissel Funaro on behalf of Dean Haverstick received on 1/20. Formal acceptance letter in the mail. Seemingly limitless mail has been pouring in, even before acceptance. Got scholarship letter in the mail on about 3/10/06. I randomly got another e-mail from BLS on 3/31 saying that I was just awarded the Centennial Grant, which is good for another $5,000. So that brings them up to $20,100 annually.

Michigan -- Rejection. Regular-sized white envolope, one sheet.

Boston -- Acceptance: Big envelope. Received scholarship/fin. aid letter on 3/17. $10,000 per year, plus stafford.

Cardozo -- Acceptance: Call from Rob Schwartz on 12/27, formal letter and big packet followed a few days later. Received scholarship letter dated 1/27. Received $20,000, renewable for 2nd and 3rd years with a 3.30 GPA.

Notre Dame -- Acceptance: E-mail from Admissions Asst. Director Heather Moriconi on 12/22. Formal acceptance letter followed several days letter. Scholarship letter came one week after that, $10,000 annually. Both in big envelopes. Got my financial aid letter end of March; another 10K. Score.

Minnesota -- Acceptance: Acceptance letter and scholarship letter came in same regular size envelope. Received $2,500 annual scholarship. A variety of other letters and info have continued to follow since.

Washington and Lee -- Acceptance: Regular sized envelope. Got an e-mail on Feb. 23rd saying that I wasn't getting any scholarship money. Time to withdraw.

Cornell -- Deferred; Reserve list; Wait Listed: Applied EA, deferred to regular admissions, to be considered after Feb. 1st. Got a letter saying that they "have placed your name on reserve." The reserve list is several hundred people long, accord to the letter, and it's not their official wait list either, which isn't formed until later in the cycle. Received official wait list letter on June 27th.

Georgetown -- Rejection: First letter, bad news. Applied Early Action. Applied there ED for undergrad also. Shmucks.

Are you going to attend one of the admitted student weekends at UMN?

Hey - Congrats on Brooklyn. When did you go complete? Can you estimate? GOOD LUCK with the other schools!

Brooklyn slow to go 'complete'
Monday, January 02 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey, yeah, I received a letter from BLS dated Jan. 6th saying "a preliminary inspection of your application indicates that we have received all required documents." Considering I submitted everything on 11/1, seems like it took them quite a while.

I left the last message, don't know why it called me "logged user"

wary of the cold

I'm not leaning towards UMN, but I'm not quite leaning away either. I like that they've been steadily ranked 19th for the last six years, but I'm an east coaster and hesitant about the midwest. I'm gonna go out there for the Feb. weekend and see if it wow's me.

Try something new... the twin cities are supposedly amazing. That's all I've got.

not sure yet
Sunday, December 25 2005 at 07:00 PM

I'm still waiting to hear from the places left, but I really liked G-town when I visited this last weekend. My big decision is whether or not I am ready to leave NYC...what about you?

East Coast snob
Monday, January 02 2006 at 07:00 PM

I'm not so worried about leaving nyc. But, I am freaking out about getting too far away from the East Coast (i.e. UMN, Emory, or ND). I'm trying to figure out what's got me so crazy about it..

about my pecking order...
Wednesday, December 14 2005 at 07:00 PM

for some reason LSN keeps re-ordering my preferences - the numbersit shows isn't the real order i have - mine is something more like : UVA, Michigan, Northwestern, Duke, Texas, Gtown, ND, and W&L with variance for Vandy and GW - and it all comes from where the school is, money, and how miserable i hear the atmosphere and school life is

i can't go to any of the accepted student weekends, sadly. i'm originally from mpls, so if you have any questions feel free to ask!

BC/Emory
Friday, January 20 2006 at 07:00 PM

Of the two, I think I prefer Emory, they gave me a scholarship and they have a lot more international courses which is what I am interested in. However, if I get into any of my remaining 7 I will attend over BC and Emory. I figure that BC and Emory are so close in the rankings (27 vs. 32) that I don't know if its worth it for me to forgo my scholarship at Emory to attend BC. What are you thinking? Congrats on all your acceptances so far....and Georgetown is a bunch of shmucks! denied me too!

it's hard to rate mpls as a city...depends on what you're looking for. as for the weather, it's best to think about it when you visit. it's cold, but it's really not that bad. we def. don't hibernate in the winter, actually i think i used the cold weather as an excuse to go out more often than not. there is a great music/theater scene and plently of bars and dance clubs to suit your tastes. my only complaint is eating-i think the resturants here aren't as great as other cities. mpls is also not incredibly diverse--mn is a very white/scandinavian state and you can tell. it's much better in mpls than out in the suburbs, though. overall the city is very liberal (not speaking for the suburbs here) and laid back. lots of parks and lakes and things to occupy your time as well. coming from nyc, you'd love the housing available here. does that help? i'm happy to answer any more questions...overall i really liked mpls, i'm seriously considering going back there for school. maybe i'll see you there!

BU

Thanks for the note. Congrats on BU and all of your other acceptances. I'll be at the open house on the 31st, you?

BU v. Fordham...
Wednesday, March 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

heya...im a bit torn between BU and Fordham at the moment...BU is a bit better ranked and a bit more affordable...but Fordham seems to have a lot of good connections and its in NYC...where you thinking of heading...?

Fordham v BU...
Wednesday, March 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

heya...thanks for the feedback, mate...went to a fordham alumni reception in LA the other day and they claim theyre number 5 in the nation for sending graduates to the top 25 law firms in the country...kinda impressive...and i heard BU has a hideous law building but cool environment due to being with the undergrad campus as opposed to fordham not...im still totally up in the air...waiting on aid packages from both...maybe ill get into nyu and that'll save me the decision...not holding my breath!!!

Fordham v BU...
Wednesday, March 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

heya, mate...thanks again for stopping by my page...I was actually coming to a lot of the same conclusions in my research on that statistic, so not sure what to think...that may all be kind of a moot point, however, as BU decided to offer me NO money...so, looks like that may be the straw that breaks the camel's back in favor of Fordham...that and I've been to NYC twice and loved it and have never had the chance to go to Boston, although I hear it's lovely...x x
