------------------- the law school 411------------
12-18-06 First admission letter -- from Harvard of all places. 5 days after my telephone interview. Just under one month from the day I submitted my application. Yay!

12-21-06 Got an email today notifying me that I've been admitted to Stanford Law .. *does happy dance*

12-28-06 Received an offer of admission from Boalt today, along with an offer for a subsidized plane ticket to admitted students weekend.

01-26-07 Offer of admission at Columbia, with a Hamilton scholarship to boot! Received word via a phone call from my mother, who went through my mail.. (boo snail mail!)

Who else thinks that turning down a 132,000 dollar scholarship for law school is like flunking an IQ test, badly??

UPDATE: withdrew from Penn because they still haven't "found" my application.
Currently deciding between Yale & Columbia .
And Columbia it is.

Rock on, super stats woman. Sounds like somebody's building quite a pedigree. Congratulations.

hey there!
Monday, October 31 2005 at 07:00 PM

Stanford rocks! please come to Stanford. i am in the latino student organization and am 'stalking' URM's on this website to try to get more people of color to come to our campus! email if you have any questions. we would love to see you here next year!

great job
Thursday, January 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

hey what was the process and how long did you study for the lsat? how do you get fee waivers? thanks

Wednesday, December 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

Did you have your recommenders turn in the specific Stanford form, or did you just have LSAC send them the letters?

Hamiltons, etc.
Thursday, October 19 2006 at 08:00 PM

Heya, yeah I'd love to hear your thoughts on the Hamilton v. other options...personally, I'm quite torn. I live in NYC and have close friends at CLS, so it's particularly appealing, but it's really hard to pass up the HSY opportunity (or in my case, 2/3). Feel free to throw me an e-mail or message with additional thoughts :-)

Monday, May 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks, and congratulations to you too! You have such an amazing profile; I'm sure you're going to be in for a clean sweep this cycle. I am very excited about the Hamilton, but the chances are high that I'll be at Stanford next year. My SO just bought a house in the Bay Area, and we really don't want to relocate, so it makes the most sense. I think, for you, the Hamilton sounds like a great, great opportunity, as long as you're okay with giving up the H (or S or Y) brand. I think opportunities are about the same. Are you going to the HLS/SLS admit weekends?

Turning it down?!?
Tuesday, December 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

You're turning down $132k? Wow. Um, can I have it? :) Please??

Re: Stanford Law
Monday, May 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

So Stanford is becoming a feasible choice? Well, here are some of reasons: (1) Quality of life - Stanford is famous for its relaxed student population, great weather, etc. Beats being a competitive, unhappy student at CLS =) (2) Smaller class - There is a strong sense of community and less fighting to get into classes or get good grades (3) Relaxed grading structure (4) Generous financial aid - If you qualify, you could get some $$$ to off-set the pain of giving up a Hamilton (5) Name brand - HYS is definitely a step up prestige-wise from CCN. Law school is a one-time investment, so make it count Good luck on your decision!

Meh, I'm okay with Yale's rejection - better me than someone else who deserves it a lot more - but if they reject you, then they'll have some explaining to do. Congratulations on everything so far! I don't envy your upcoming decision.

I've been to campus once or twice, long ago, but it wouldn't matter at this point if it was the ugliest place on earth and New Haven the horrible dump everyone says it is, I'm really excited about Yale! Are you still holding out for Penn/Yale or are you going with CLS? That's weird though that you haven't heard back from all your schools yet - looks like you should be an auto admit pretty much anywhere!

8 weeks?!
Friday, September 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

With tuition deposit and finaid deadlines coming up, Penn still wants 8 weeks? That's insane. With Yale, I thought the percentage of Yale undergrads was higher in the law school than any other school... but that was probably just hearsay. In any case, my undergrad is about as far from Yale as you can get... well, in your shoes (and I wish I had had this choice myself!) I would probably go with Boalt, the campus is so beautiful and everyone there was so nice, compared to CLS. Cali seems like a much better place to spend three years than the city anyhow, but that's just me. If it comes down to 100k of debt or a school which doesn't give you /quite/ as prestigious a diploma, I'd have to agree with you on the IQ test thing.

re: stuff
Monday, July 10 2006 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, quite the dilemma. I'm actually leaning the other way though. The money upfront doesn't seem to be quite as important when considered in the long run.

Friday, September 29 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats! Glad they finally came through :)

Friday, May 12 2006 at 08:00 PM

I hope you go to yale. I think you should not pass up the opportunity. Though Harvard and Stanford are also so good I don't think there is an actual difference between HYS. But don't pass up HYS because of a scholarship to NYU. You'll be able to pay off the loans.

Thursday, July 13 2006 at 08:00 PM

I dunno. I feel that I like CLS a little bit less after each additional school I visit. We absolutely loved Stanford, so the choice is now SLS vs. CLS vs. HLS. What about you? Are you going to Yale?

decisions decisions
Friday, September 29 2006 at 08:00 PM

I'm decided, actually, but because SLS and YLS are both so small... and I'm a bit paranoid about anonymity, I've decided to leave a little mystery. Luckily (?) I was not in the horrible position of weighing HYS against $$$$ from other fine law schools. So my decision was perhaps easier than yours will be. :)

Monday, November 13 2006 at 07:00 PM

It's nice to see someone else choosing the Hamilton. See you in August!

Law school decisions
Saturday, March 28 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hi, I saw that you were deciding between Yale, Columbia with a Hamilton and NYU's IILJ a couple of years ago. That is the decision I am currently making and it would be really helpful speaking to someone about it. Would you be willing to pass on any advice or answer a few questions about your decision? Thanks!
