Additional info & updates

12/17: Email from Toby Stock
12/19: Phone interview from the notorious Mr. Stock

1/17: The weird Michigan quasi-deferral "we're still looking at your app" email; I'm not terribly surprised since I got too lazy to write any of their optional essays.

1/25: Columbia acceptance by letter with notification of a Hamilton - this should make the decision a little more interesting....

2/2: Georgetown letter with notification that I'm under consideration as a Dean's Scholar (up to full tuition for 3 years). There's a short additional application process with 3 small essays.

2/3: Penn email informing me of nomination as a candidate for the Levy scholarship. An extra essay is required.

3/1: Email from Boalt telling me that my application has been "selected for further review" by the faculty admissions committee. Is this a fancy deferral? No clue.

3/20: Boalt email with offer of admission.

4/24: Yale waitlist via letter. I'll stay on the list, but my deposit is going to Harvard tomorrow, along with a bunch of withdrawal letters. Hamilton, I will miss you quite a lot when I write those loan checks, but I hope it'll be worth it.

7/20: Yale kindly informed me that they're releasing me from their waitlist - Harvard for sure!

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?

Thanks for your comment - I'm not sure how much I can help you with the LSAT question, but I did only take it once (Oct 2005). I actually starting prepping for the test with the Barrons book before someone told me it was really bad; at that point i just got a book of old actual LSATs and did about 2 a week (I think I probably did 6 or 7 overall). I made sure to pay special attention to the games section, which was my weakest, and practiced making diagrams a lot. Other than that, I didn't do anything particularly special to prepare. Good luck with your applications next year!

In defense of Michigan
Sunday, December 18 2005 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the congratulations - in Michigan's defense, they did give me both the chance to originally write the optional essays and the deferral email of "you'd better send us something proving you're interested." Which I didn't. So I can't really blame them for waitlisting me. Chicago, now - them I can be irritated at! *grin*

Michigan Waitlist
Sunday, December 18 2005 at 07:00 PM

I'm afraid I was rude and didn't formally withdraw, but I also didn't send them the letter back to stay on. Since Michigan only gives two weeks to respond to notice of a waitlist, I'd imagine they've already crossed me off their list.

Sunday, December 18 2005 at 07:00 PM

No, I don't think so. I'm an East Coast-er by birth and inclination, and I think my mother would throw a fit if I upped and moved across the country. Stanford & Berkeley were always unlikely to be my final choice, and it's not worth the drama of staying on the waitlist.
