Additional info & updates

I've been notified by pretty much every school that I'm complete. most apps were complete around the first and second week of December.
I am applying to Law School with my significant other of 8 years. She has not identified herself as a URM. In the end what it came down to is where we both got accepted because we're a team. She scored lower than I on the LSAT but has a better GPA.

Sent email to NYU & Cornell officially withdrawing my applications (my S/O received rejections).

12/27/08: Received acceptance from Gtown. Informed Gtown that my S/O's admission decision was deferred until some time in January and that I could not attend without her. They responded that they would make note of that.

In my acceptance to Gtown the Dean handwrote that I had the best personal statement he'd read thus far.

01/09/09: Received e-mail from Virginia informing me to call them. I called them and left a message. They called back and informed me I was accepted. Informed them about the situation with my S/O. They informed they would expidite the review of her application.

01/10/09: S/O received acceptace e-mail from Berkeley. We will withdraw our other applications. Berkeley was the dream and now it's reality so we are both estatic!

03/09/09: When I asked Berkeley how to arrange for my fiance and I to have the same schedule, Dean e-mailed back that we would not be allowed to have the same module. Apparently, there is a policy (probably not official) of not allowing spouses, friends, or relatives to have the same module.
