Additional info & updates

Numbers indicate order of preference.

Received = Date of LSDAS report request.

04-19-07 - Harvard saw I was going to Berkeley, got jealous, and rejected me. ;) Note: I did not send any updated materials after my deferral.

04-14-07 - ** DECISION **

I had an outstanding time at the Berkeley admit day, and my decision is made.

Turning down the Northwestern money was not an easy decision. However, Boalts potent offering of an amazing amazing student body, the nation's top IP program, and the beautiful bay area was too much to resist.. I can't wait to get started!

I'll start withdrawing soon, but will let Harvard play out just to satiate my curiousity.

02-07-07 - Received phone call from Penn Law notifying me of my acceptance. Yay!

01-30-07 - Received one-year deferred admission from Northwestern with a substantial scholarship... things are getting interesting!

01-29-07 - Received acceptance email from University of Washington.

01-15-07 - Received acceptance email from Edward Tom at Berkeley, and I couldn't be more thrilled! I'm not sure if a call was involved, as I'm currently out of the country.

1-09-07 - All complete. Oh boy...

12-07-06 - All LSDAS reports out... waiting for complete notices.

11-24-06 - They all went out today... *phew* Wish me luck!

11-01-06 - Still finishing up my PS. It's hard knowing that so much will ride on it! :/

Thanks for the kind words . . . not a bad LSAT jump yourself! Let's hope the new ABA policy helps both of us. Good luck w/ your cycle.

Thanks, you too! :) And yes, I'm counting on my club founding to push me through on the borderline schools.

Congrats on the acceptances so far! Good luck with Harvard! Things are looking good for retakers this year.

Saturday, May 27 2006 at 08:00 PM

Hey Aaron, it's Erin. I can't tell you how many times I get asked if I spell my name like yours. I'm jealous of your Berkeley acceptance, but I hope we both get into Harvard! Congrats on your awesome cycle!

Hell yeah!

Boalt is where the cool kids are.

$120,000? Take the money and run! Just kidding...Chicago could never match our side of the country. :-) Good luck with your decision...

Yep! I'll be there!
Wednesday, August 30 2006 at 08:00 PM

I just made my reservations the other day & I'm pretty excited. How long are you staying there? See you there (HOPE FOR EXTRA SUN)!

Wednesday, August 30 2006 at 08:00 PM

on a great cycle & making a great decision at the end. :-) I might see you in the fall, but, if not, I hope you have a great three years there...

Friday, September 08 2006 at 08:00 PM

Nice job! Good to see that you're going to Boalt - I'm hoping to be there next year. How do you think your PS stacked up compared to others? I've finished drafting mine but I'm disappointed that it's only mediocre. Would love to get some advice from you if you're willing.

Thanks, Aaron. I'm definitely looking forward to this fall. I can't imagine going anywhere else. Also, thanks for the many posts on LSD and now the Google Boalt c/o 2010 page!
