Additional info & updates

I'm disappointed with the quality of my personal, diversity and other statements. They seemed alright at the time that I submitted them, but seem bland, uninspired and poorly written now that I have some distance from the writing process and am looking at them afresh.

Feb 22nd: Well, one or two people whose opinions I respect have read these statements and say that they're not so bad, after all.

Apr. 26: Relieved. My cycle is over.

i get the first post here! i have devirginized your LSN page! *devilface* in any case, any of these schools would be flat stupid to reject you. and furthermore, i know EXACTLY how you feel about personal statements, et al. however, having read them and having seen others (and my own paltry pieces) i can say that they're downright awesome. especially the PS. good fucking god was that good. now lets just hope that they understand that getting a 4.0 from a euro school is damn well impossible, if they realize that you should have a good shot at everywhere.

Spare us....
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

You write very very well and I am sure your statements, personal and other, are first rate. Send me postcards from New Haven! I am curious why not Stanford? Do you want to practice in WA?

Where? Any chance it was Alaska?

hallo
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

oy, red, you're finally on LSN! and not to worry, all the BEST writers think their work is crap. otherwise, what would be the point in trying to do better? but more to the point, i only read the diversity statement in full, but i enjoyed it immensely--so that that fwiw.

De-flowered!
Thursday, February 16 2006 at 07:00 PM

Yay! Comments already! Who better to devirginize me than the Kaiser himself? Thanks for the encouragement, all. Pass36: Stanford isn\\\'t strong in what I want to practice (lovely campus, though) z39dot50: no not in Alaska.. in WA magnumalv: thanks, your opinion means a lot.

=)

Bonne chance, mon amie. As-tu assist l'universit en France, en Angleterre, ou quoi ?

i'm waiting
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

for some yale action on this page...

yeah, how'd the GPA go up?
Wednesday, October 26 2005 at 08:00 PM

they change how they view foreign grades? well, in any case, you're now out of the splitter club and Curly's number twin. which means you're going to have to come visit Harvard and meet Boston LSD folk. JS. :)

GPA

Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey, your GPA keeps rising up and rising down -- what's up with that?

HELP!!
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

Help out a fellow PNWesterner via the UK!! For a fat old man who wants to stay in the PNW, is a full ride at Lewis and Clark better than spending $150K at NYU??? BTW, I am a little disappointed my Vollman reference above did not get a sarcastic response out of you!! :-)

Schools
Wednesday, August 31 2005 at 08:00 PM

Red: We all know you're going to go to Yale (if thats what you want). Good luck! If i were you, I'd skip law school for a career on the big screen though ;0)

You should have your pick of schools...
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Keep us posted as soon as you hear from YLS! Good luck!

yeah,
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

i second JG... and i dont wanna hear no crap about "lighting," either missy. :o)

Saturday, December 31 2005 at 07:00 PM

wow, looks like your self imposed arrogance title might be undeserved. or you're afraid of being dragged into the witchhunt and thrown in the court of mal-content also ;)

seems like we haven't crossed paths in awhile so i just wanted to drop in and say hello! also, where'd you do your aids/tb/sexual trafficking work? in africa by any chance? I'm going to be volunteering in africa from june -beginning of LS but i haven't decided where exactly i want to go. it's between kenya, tanzania, south africa, and ghana... i just can't decided. sorry that was a tangent! haha =)

Good Luck
Sunday, January 22 2006 at 07:00 PM

Wish you the best during this cycle. You should be hearing the good news soon.

You are so freaking smart...
Saturday, March 25 2006 at 07:00 PM

I'm afraid to talk to you on LSD! Let me know how NYU, U of C, YLS, Cornell or Columbia is because I'm sure you'll get in to all of them. :0)

CONGRATS
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

in advance ;)

congrats, congrats :)
Tuesday, March 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

i've been following your applications since you so kindly helped with my ps. i'm sure columbia is only the first of many for you- but there's something extra sweet about that first one :) wishing you continued good news!

congrats, congrats :)

congrats! =)

Very sad
Wednesday, August 24 2005 at 08:00 PM

Just Columbia so far? What the hell is taking Yale so long? I think I shall tell Yale I will never ever attend that school unless they admit you immediately! ;-)

Hey Red, Yup, my profile is quite a read. Feel free to drop by whenever you get bored -- it's a great source of comic relief. I had an AMAZING time at Yale, but I'm still going to give myself some time to think it all over before I make a final decision. I'd love it if we ended up at the same place. If we do, we should grab a cup of coffee (my treat).

NYU
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

woo freakin' hoo for the NYC love!

tick, tock...
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

It's only a matter of time.

Your best acceptance yet
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

See, things are working out fine. If Cornell says no, its just their yield protection way of complementing you.

Wednesday, February 01 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congratulations - guess that personal statement worked out better than you thought. Good luck for the rest of the cycle.

Hey hun
Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Chicago! You're racking 'em up, just like I knew you would. :o)

Go PNW!!
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on all the cash and acceptances. YLS is just a matter of time. I know you will do great wherever you decide to go!!

HLS vs. NYU
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

I actually think that NYU is better in a lot of areas than HLS - I would go to NYU if I could afford an apartment instead of a dorm without living in Brooklyn .... or if some nice young person with a full ride needed a cabana boy???

Congrats
Monday, September 19 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on YALE!!!

Congratulations on YLS!
Tuesday, December 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

You deserve it.

Congratulations
Tuesday, April 25 2006 at 08:00 PM

I'm so excited and happy for you :) See you in New Haven!

Great News!
Tuesday, January 17 2006 at 07:00 PM

I'm very pleased to see that you have been admitted to YLS. I look forward to seeing you in the upcoming year!

YAY
Sunday, January 22 2006 at 07:00 PM

Sweet.

Saturday, December 24 2005 at 07:00 PM

Well done, you're a star

good luck
Tuesday, April 04 2006 at 08:00 PM

Good luck in New Haven. I'm doing my master's at Yale now and it's a wonderful school. A beautiful campus too.
