Additional info & updates

So I decided to do Teach for America next year. I accepted and deferred Harvard, but I'll leave up my thoughts on the others too...

HARVARD: I loved the admitted students weekend. I felt the most comfortable there, and also the most excited about the next couple years. If you have questions about specifics, lemme know.

STANFORD: And the verdict is in...well, sorta. Waitlist? I think I'll be withdrawing that one without too much remorse.

COLUMBIA: I was pretty impressed, and the Hamilton (full-ride) caused lots of bumps in my decision-making, but I just don't think I would be as happy there as HLS.

NYU: I had no expectations and was really impressed when I visited. I ruled it out because if I was going to be in New York, it didn't make sense not to take the full-ride at CLS over the half-ride at NYU, but otherwise I would have given them more consideration.

CHICAGO: I was also really impressed by the visit. The small size is appealing, and the community - not to mention I love Chicago.

PENN: Eh. I guess they really want that "Why Penn" essay. Otherwise I don't know why they didn't like me.

MICHIGAN: To be honest, I still don't know much about it. Just knew I'd rather be in a city.

NORTHWESTERN: Same as Penn I guess - didn't do the extra essay OR the interview, which from what I've heard, is especially necessary if applying straight from undergrad.

GEORGETOWN: Loved it. And the full-ride helped. But, alas, I have been in DC for four years, have a few better opportunities, and thought it was time to move on.

GW: First full-ride I was offered which was nice, but also never saw it nor do I know much about them.

WASH U: Went to visit when I was home - not bad, not mind-blowing. Not enough money to keep them in the running.

WILLIAM & MARY, ILLINOIS, and INDIANA: Sort of my "if everything goes wrong" places. From what I've heard, great schools, so hopefully opened some good spots with the withdrawls. Good luck to you!

no yale, good for you...your safety schools make me want to cream by themselves =p enjoy harvard

Congratulations, and two quick questions
Friday, December 31 2004 at 07:00 PM

Hey, congratulations on the acceptance! I have two questions for you though. It would be awesome if you could answer them. I got a W on my transcript (non-punitive, non GPA counting,) Did you have any Ws on your transcript, or do you know anybody that has one or more and will it affect my acceptance into Harvard, Yale, etc? (Considering I get a high GPA and a high LSAT? (E-mail me or leave a message with the answer in my profile) Also, if you dont mind, could you tell me how you prepared for the LSAT?

In at Harvard

and out at NW? That is odd. Congrats on all your great acceptances, though, and your amazing LSAT. :o)

Congrats on everything

Screw NW...they're trying to create a niche for themselves full of old people. Thanks for helping a brother out and withdrawing from UIUC... Best of luck. ESPONDA

Congrats!

First off, congrats on all your acceptances so far. You're kickin major ass. I LOVED GULC too! Though I don't have as many options are you, it's going to be hard to say no. See you next fall, perhaps!

Congrats..

Congrats on everything, especially the Hamilton @ Columbia -- really impressive. That's such an awesome opportunity. Good luck making a choice...

how the hell are you making your decision? any brilliant ideas? (and congrats by the way!)

oops...

I just noticed the Columbia full-ride. I'd assume that would make the decision a little easier! :-)
