Additional info & updates

12/8 IN AT NYU by snail mail purple folder!!!!!!

WOOHOO!!!!!!!

My cycle is done!!!

1/11/08. Update: Apparently my withdrawal email crossed paths with Georgetown's acceptance letter. I wasn't home to pick up the letter or the two Christmas cards they sent, since I was in CA for the holidays, but they were nice to see upon my return. Made me (sort of) regret applying ED to NYU, since it would have been nice to visit Georgetown, at least. And the personalized comments from the dean are super nice.

I'm sure that schools will take your pre-med curriculum into consideration when looking at your splits . Plus, quitting med school for law school shows big time commitment. You should be in great shape. Don't worry about your list - you will definitely get into at least one of those schools, so no reason to add other schools you wouldn't want to go to as much as any of those. Congrats on having the conviction to make the switch, and best of luck!

gee, thanks for the encouragement... anyway, it was actually 5 yrs into an MD/PhD program before i quit, so the reversal isn't as wishy washy as it may seem.

Someone's impersonating me!
Sunday, March 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

The first comment wishing you luck was really from me, but the "Flip flop" one was someone pretending to be me. I'd never think anything like that! Sorry he/she was so obnoxious! And really, good luck with everything!

Hi
Friday, October 26 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! Good luck to you, we look like pretty good numbers twins here, and I'm sure you'll have no problem with Gtown. Good luck with NYU, it's one of my top choices.

Why not more?
Wednesday, August 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

Are those all of your apps in their totality? Why not throw a few more into the mix? You'll definitely get into at least 2 or 3 of those, if not all, but why not spend another 300 bucks?

I know...
Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

...13 is a bit more than I had originally intended, but fee waivers made applying widely a bit easier to stomache. You sure seem to have an interesting story with the med/law switch...I'll be interested to see how things play out for you; please keep me posted! p.s. I'm also jealous that you went complete at Duke so quickly! I submitted 10/31 and still haven't seen any changes in my compulsive status-checker-checking. :-)

Did you manage to get a MS or something out of your 5 years as MD/PhD? I think Washch is right on; your intense curriculum will mitigate your split, and your obvious intelligence, demonstrated in your LSAT score, your MD/PhD curriculum, etc , will triumph. Also, you can't be jealous of me; your numbers and your resume both seem better than mine

Thanks!
Friday, March 09 2007 at 07:00 PM

You're in at NYU, btw:) Good luck, and fantastic LSAT!

Thanks
Saturday, June 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

for the congrats! I have a feeling NYU ED is going to work out very well for you. I'm keeping my options open for the moment, but I must admit that HLS is a pretty big draw. :-)

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

Yeah, I heard from Duke today around 6pm...it was a nice suprise, since I had sort of forgotten about it and was working late (darn Sydney/DC time differences!)...but it's nice to know I'm in somewhere. :-)

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

I know what you mean about Gtown taking forever...I LIVE IN THEIR CITY, for gosh sakes! :-)

Thanks
Saturday, June 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

For editing my PS! Best of luck to you this cycle. :-)

Tuesday, June 20 2006 at 08:00 PM

yeah...like that's going to convince me =]

GOOD LUCK!
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

...looks like you won't need that. I definitely considered Med too though I don't think I did well enough in college. I'm pretty psyched about the law thing anyhow - keep me informed and best of luck! YOU WILL DO AWESOME!

Thanks!
Sunday, July 22 2007 at 08:00 PM

for the well wishes. Here's to more nonTrad success! I think you will have a great cycle.

Luck to you too!
Monday, November 19 2007 at 07:00 PM

Awesome stats, you're in the catbird's seat! Hope you kick some A$$ this cycle!

Thanks...
Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

the best part about Duke was that the JD/MA e-mail came around 430pm, and the "we may have allowed your ID to be stolen" e-mail came about two hours later. Oh, Duke.

Did I call it?
Wednesday, October 10 2007 at 08:00 PM

Or did I call it? :) CONGRATS! How exciting!

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

On NYU! :)

How exciting!
Sunday, July 22 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on your NYU acceptance. And now you are done. Think of me biting my nails as you relax and enjoy the interim before 1L starts :)

Congratulations to you, too!
Sunday, March 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

I had no doubt you'd get into NYU :) I think it's going to come down to NYU or Michigan for me, regardless of how the rest of my cycle turns out. Maybe I'll see you in NY! Enjoy your time off before law school!

So Good

like the others, just wanted to congratulate you on nyu!

Congrats bluegenes
Thursday, May 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

I just figured out that this is/was you. Chances are I'll see you at NYU next year.

honestly
Thursday, May 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

assuming I get into columbia it's going to come down to money and the commute. Columbia's med/dental school is in the far north of manhattan so it's not like we'd be on the same campus anyways.

easy for you too say =]

Thanks
Monday, May 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

...for the congratulations. Your story is fantastic; you're sure to bring a unique element to next fall's class at NYU.

Thanks!
Monday, December 10 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thank you for the congrats! I'm very happy to have the acceptance under my belt. Congrats on your acceptance, as well!

Does it feel good to know exactly where you will be in 8 months? If I had the numbers NYU would be my choice over HYS anyday.

^^ That post was from me. :)

le sigh.
Wednesday, October 19 2005 at 08:00 PM

thanks for the continuing encouragement...i already have two good choices, it is just a bit paranoia inducing to have to wait so long! i have a feeling it will be a busy two months as things gear back up, though...

Congrats!
Thursday, October 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on NYU! Will you be attending an ASW?

Thanks!
Thursday, October 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

I'm thinking I'll go to the first one on March 7. I'm within commuting distance, so I might make an additional trip some other time.

I hadn't actually thought about attending one, but since my parents live right outside the city, I could maybe catch one when I'm home to see them. Let me know when you decide which one you're going to. It would be great to meet! I have a feeling, though, that we might find we're scarily similar :)

thanks!
