i never received a complete e-mail, just a phone call (and supposedly a letter is coming in about a week). i hope you get a call soon!
sorry ab gtown :( i know a couple of people who got WL'd; sucks! where i go will be contingent on how the rest of the cycle pans out...still waiting on some more (ok, 11) apps. my gpa/lsat were at least at the medians for the schools that i've heard back from. p.s. your gpa is pretty hawt. g.luck!
I'm sure you'll hear good news from UCLA and Berkeley soon. You have an awesome GPA!!! (and California schools really like that). Good luck this cycle!
about the deferral-I would've expected you to get in at Georgetown. But as the person above me said, UCs
about the deferral-I would've expected you to get in at Georgetown. But as the person above me said, UCs
don't know what happened there, but I was saying that UCs love high GPAs so I'm sure things will be getting better soon :)
How did NYU contact you to confirm completion? I submitted over a month ago and then called them 2 weeks ago. They said I was on file, but they could not confirm my status. The conversation basically ended with a snippy "we'll be in touch" statement. By the way...I wish you the best of luck on your aiming high. I'm doing the same myself (only my numbers are not as good as yours). Gotta shoot for the top and hope they see through the numbers.
I did -- and my numbers should look familiar to you -- and have been totally, completly, pleasantly surprised by the results to date. (Okay, just two schools, but still.) So you don't apologize for ambition, and best of luck.
Hi, and thanks for the kind words. I know that law schools are falling all over themselves to explain that they're kinder, gentler law schools than they used to be, but I didn't expect even the application process to be quite so social. Thanks, internets. Choices? Good question. There are a lot of great schools on my list. I've already been accepted to two more of them than I truly expected to be. (I mean, I thought I had a *chance* at UM and Boalt, which is why I applied, but I certainly didn't *expect* acceptance at either place, especially not by now.) My girlfriend's family is all in Michigan, which weighs in heavily in favor of Michigan. One could do worse. Really, I have a lot more applications that I spent a lot of time and money preparing, so I'm going to give it through the spring and see what happens. And you? Preferences?
I didn't write any additional documents/addenda for Georgetown. Don't be afraid to aim high-you have good numbers and you'll get in somewhere great
i think that i submitted the app in late october, like around the 25th or so. i was really surprised to hear from them so soon. Don't worry, we're numbers twins and I'm sure that duke is going to pull through fast. Durham is wonderful.
i really believe that they read statements, but I also think that they're really into the lsat scores. Clearly, numbers are important, but what really makes my application strong are my soft factors. That said, not sure about gtown. The letter was sent yesterday and I'm betting it's not in the sexy beige envelope...
Hey...don't despair about Gtown...you don't really wanna go there anyway : ) I'd say some acceptances are in your near future.
just wanted to let you know that i'm thinking of you and hoping that you hear from some wonderful schools this week!! Keep up the good spirits. Good things happen to good people. Happy holidays ;)
I'm not leaving that desk until everyone gets in somewhere. However, I now have champagne in addition to the fantastic goodies ^^ I hope you hear soon, I have my fingers crossed for you!
I got a letter and then a packet from SC. We are applying to a lot of the same schools, good luck with your cycle.
I'm sure its very nervewracking to not have heard but I'm sure with your stats you will get good news eventually. If its really bugging you its not to late to send off an extra safety app.
who loves pugs to another: good luck!
i'm keeping fingers crossed for you. I'm sure that the news is in the mail. Until then, we're trying to send some positive energy to the application gods that be. Take a deep breath!
Congratulations! What a well deserved acceptance. I hope there are many more in your future and that they come faster than this first one!
on USC! you're allowed to attend, but you can't ever be a trojan :) hopefully i'll be hearing soon...
Congrats on USC! I love pugs too, so I had to write a comment. Good luck on the rest of the schools!!
congrats on your hold! i'd love to get that letter....but i don't think i'll have much of a chance.
How could a dog owner not own a pug? My little boy is 31 pounds. Nuts, no?
Buy a pug and we'll meet for a playdate.
Rugercaptain's page. The first thing I'm doing when I get to wherever is buying my own pug (I've never owned my own...always my parents'). I will probably just study a little more at home so he's not alone. They do need a lot of attention, but really they sleep ALL DAY! Seriously, on the weekend, if you stay home all day, the pug will sleep for at least 6 hours of it. Lazy. Like Lions.
As a fellow pug-lover and owner I hope you find a way to keep one during school. They do tend to need lots of attention though. My S.O. and I just got another pug puppy so our first has company and play time while we're at work. A quick question: Have you ever seen a pug with long hair? Congrats on USC, and I hope Boalt gives us both some good news soon! Good luck with your cycle.
Breeders are preferable, though you should watch out for puppy mills. Try to always see what conditions the puppies were living in and their parents if possible. We found a breeder through our vet. If you happen to live in Southern California I can fwd the number for a couple of reputable breeders. One of our pugs has long, black hair. Our vet said the long hair happens in about 1 in 10,000. He's actually very cute.
Yeah, they sent me a snail-mail acceptance packet with a print accept/withdraw form in it, so hopefully that one will really work. I went ahead and emailed them as soon as I found out, though, to attempt to withdraw again, and I think that actually worked this time (at least, they sure sounded a little sheepish). I mean, its just sort of funny from my perspective, but they do have 5,000 other applicants who Im sure really, really do want to go there, so I thought I would make another effort to try to get out of their way, and maybe let one of those fine people in in my stead. So if you get accepted soon, its clearly all my doing. :-)
Pugs are awesome. Mine is a silver fawn named Max. He's 8 months old, and surprisingly flatulent for such a small animal...
Hey, glad to help. I figure it's a practical process, not a "gee, where else can I get in?" beauty pageant, so I may as well withdrawn now and open up one more spot for someone else.
Right now I think it's between Cornell and GW for me. If I get into one of the schools where I'm still pending, I probably would bump them up too, but I'm not holding out much hope. What's your top choice at this point?
I was also supposed to hear from them by 2/23, and I haven't received any news. It's driving me crazy.
Congratulations about USC. I am a huge Trojan fan and have been since I was very young. However, that's the very reason why I am not applying for it. My parents had me when they were graduate students at SC, I also graduated from undergraduate at SC. Alot of people have a different take on it than I do, but I think it would be a better idea to go to a different school than my undergrad. Fight on for sure!....Good luck on your apps.
I'm still leaning toward Northwestern b/c I think I want to be in a city. But G-Town and GW are tempting because I love DC. I'm just worried about the size of the schools. I think I would be happier at a small school.
I'd say there's about a 50/50 chance I end up going there, but it also depends how much I like the school when I go out to visit. Sorry about all the waitlists! Are you staying on all of them?
hello friend! congrats on USC! They're skyrocketing through the rankings, and the upward trend looks to continue. And, money is always a nice warm welcome :)
No, I won't be able to make it. I've already done the class visit/tour thing though, and have fairly good info about the school. How long are you going to stick it out on all of these waitlists/deferrals? Is SC starting to look better for you?
i ended up re-creating an account. this site is really addicting
congrats on usc! maybe see you there:-)
i won`t be able to make it on the 20th, so i am going there next monday just for a self-guided tour:)) i haven`t fully made up my mind yet- still waiting to hear from ucla and i want to stay in the bay area in the long run and have a pending hastngs acceptance (just as you). so it`s fun! nevertheless, good luck in whatever you choose:)
love me too.
Well, I'm wearing a UCLA hat right now....I guess that says something! I'm going out to Ithaca on Wed. to check out Cornell, though I think it will be coming down to either USC or UCLA, though I heard something about a scholarship from Hastings in an email from them today. So I still have to weigh all of that. What about yourself? Plus, are you planning on staying on WL's? Good luck with everything.
Thanks for the note. After visiting several schools in the last few weeks, I'd say that Michigan is my top choice for next fall. Unless Yale accepts me. So, like I said, it will likely be Michigan.
See the new update...maybe we'll be classmates next year?
Have you made any decisions? Will you be there on the 20th?
So, have you decided on USC over Hastings for sure yet?
congrats on deciding;)
just wanted to tell you congrats and wish you the best going forward. pugs are lovely. i hope to have two someday (they enjoy company) and already have their names picked out: winston and franklin. dorky but endearing and historically significant!
I'm with you on tenatively going to SC...with the Bruin in me hoping for the Boalt waitlist to come through. :) Just wanted to say good luck!
yay pugattack! congrats on ucla! i can't believe they called you on a sunday. that's great news, i'm excited that the schools are starting to work on their waitlisted candidates ;)
Congrats on UCLA!!! You've been treated to one of the strangest cycles I've seen and I'm glad to see some schools are starting to come through for you!!
Congrats on UCLA! How did you hear? Email, phone call? I'd knew they'd pull threw for you.
Congrats on the UCLA admit! Here's hoping for the trend to continue. Did you find out about your Boalt quartile ranking yet?
I've got several reasons. :) I don't want to clutter up your wall, though...shoot me an e-mail and I'll be happy to share my thoughts.
You lucky dog. :) All the best of luck to you at Boalt.
Congrats on Boalt!!! ~MCB
Here's to your cycle! What a wonderful way to end all that trauma and anxiety :) My utmost congratulations. Yay Boalt!!!!! Gotta get a lease now...
Hey gotta love big public schools in california. i hope we both get in somewhere good! where are your backups? Just hastings and sc? i'm trying to get together some backup options . so far, davis, hastings, and gw is ucla technically backup, since we have about a 60% chance of acceptance? hmm.. would help me to sleep easier at night, that's for sure.
