Extra Curricular Information

DUKE LAW CLASS OF 2010!!!!!!!!!

I like Guinness, skiing, and puppies.

Additional info & updates

Also applied to B.C.L./LL.B. at McGill University in Montreal, rejected (huh?) via online status checker on 03/08/07, not terribly upset as there was no chance I'd go there anyway given my other acceptances/scholarships

Notifications (decision dates above are the postmark/email date):

11/09/06: Duke, big white packet with blue folder inside, accepted to JD/LLM program in International and Comparative Law

11/13/06: Email from Fordham, followed by snail mail copy to permanent address

11/16/06: Georgetown, small cream-colored envelope with hand-written note from Dean

12/19/06: Email from Cornell, followed by snail mail letter in small white envelope, accepted to JD/LLM program in International and Comparative Law

12/21/06: BC, big packet to my permanent address that took forever to get there because the South is special

1/10/07: Email from Harvard, application placed on hold

1/30/07: Columbia, "first reserve" notification in small cream envelope, indicated that I want to remain in consideration online

3/10/07: UVA, general non-resident waitlist notification in small cream envelope

3/28/07: Harvard, rejection letter in small cream envelope

4/15/07: NYU, waitlist notification in small white envelope with viewfinder

5/17/07: UVA, offer of admission from waitlist received via phone from Dean of Admissions (had already withdrawn via email, twice, so not sure how that happened but flattering nonetheless)

Scholarships (amounts above are total value):

2/1/07: Duke, received photocopy of a scholarship notice that they sent me in December that vanished in the mail (see, it does happen): $8K a year plus $3K stipend for first summer and $1,200 for second summer

3/5/07: Cornell, received offer of Dean's Scholarship of $25,000 a year

3/21/07: Duke, received revised scholarship offer granting an additional $6K over three years

3/3/07: Withdrew from Georgetown via accept/decline sheet provided in one of their mailings

3/10/07: Withdrew from UVA via email indicated in waitlist notice immediately upon receipt

3/27/07: Withdrew from Fordham via email to Admissions office

3/30/07: Withdrew from Columbia, NYU, and Cornell via emails to Admissions offices

4/16/07: Withdrew (again) from NYU via sheet provided in waitlist envelope, guess they didn't get my email two weeks ago withdrawing before they'd made a decision

Grats on your deferral (it feels strange saying that). I've not heard anything yet, and am praying I'm not in the autoding category!

Just looking for similar numbers, seeing if NYU has started to get to any of us fence-sitters yet. Grats on G-Town, are you planning on making ASW? Furthermore, nice to see another Richard Adams fan, Bigwig's stand always gets to me.

It is a great book. I loved the animated film too when I was younger. Did you read the sequel?

Oh, congrats on your admits too :)

I can't believe your letter got lost! Most of my mail has been taking 2+ weeks to get to me (with the exception of my Harvard rejection that made it here in 6 days). I'm actually crossing my fingers to get into Duke so maybe I will see you there!

HAHA

funny, i was literally JUST about to write the same thing to you. I think I'm leaning towards Duke, just so I can spend more time studying languages (they have all the ____ for law classes at Duke) and I am kinda interested in having a basketball team to support after law school. It would be nice if they gave me money though. Plus, I like the idea of having a forest to go running in. But we'll see, I have to check out the school during ASW. You? Feel free to email me.

Is there a Fry's around here?

Thanks for the reply. I have concerns over GULC's size as well. But I wonder if it is really an issue given that most schools divide into sections and you can speak with the Profs personally etc. A lot of lawyers have told me to go to GULC hands down even over higher ranked schools because of the location and reputation. This is making my decision difficult because I really like Northwestern. Tough choices. Anyway, best of luck at Duke.
