Best of luck to you, too. I suspect you'll get into at least one of HYS.

Good Luck!
Thursday, September 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

And congrats on your LSAT.

I wish!
Friday, September 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

I wish I was your numbers twins. You're quite set with the GPA /LSAT combo. Congratulations on the great score! I was glad to see your results on LSD!

I did go to CIM...was there for three years. I'm a cellist. What's your instrument? And congratulations on your numbers.

Good Luck
Thursday, August 18 2005 at 08:00 PM

I decided to do the Yale ap. couldn't hurt. I bet you will change your mind in two weeks. I would be very interested in reading your PS. Are you interested in exchanging?

=)
Friday, September 02 2005 at 08:00 PM

Yay, UCLA finally requested LSDAS! And I got the Penn fee waiver not too long ago, so I bet you'll get it too.

No Yale or Chicago?
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

As someone who went through a similar situation I must ask, why no Yale? And Chicago for that matter?

Four Cali schools
Tuesday, August 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Four out of nine...you must be weighing the flip-flop factor. We are (almost) numbers twins, but I wish I had "Ivy" under "school type." Good luck!

congrats ...

Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Georgetown... you were an autoadmit but congrats anyway... '-)

Yay!
Saturday, September 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

I'm so happy for you and your GULC acceptance! I'm sure you'll get into a bunch of other and better schools, but this is just the beginning. : )

Going Complete
Thursday, August 18 2005 at 08:00 PM

When do you think we will go complete at Harvard and Columbia. We sent around the same time. It is beginning to worry me a little bit.

good luck
Saturday, November 12 2005 at 07:00 PM

Nice numbers. I was curious about your EC's, and PS. I am applying next cycle. Good luck.

what kind of confirmation did you get from boalt when your application was complete? (i'm still waiting to hear from them that they've gotten everything they need from me.) thanks and congratulations on your acceptances.

Congrats on Boalt!

Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

on your acceptances and many thanks for withdrawing your apps. Not that makes me any more in at any of those schools but that was still a nice thing for you to do!!

congrats!
Saturday, October 01 2005 at 08:00 PM

I remember seeing your lsd name from back in summer when we were preparing for lsat. =) really glad you made it and getting accepted to all these great schools! crossing fingers, me

Congrats on Harvard!
Wednesday, December 14 2005 at 07:00 PM

I hope that's where you're going :) Otherwise, I'd be happy to take your seat with my unqualified numbers.

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?

lol
Wednesday, August 31 2005 at 08:00 PM

I'm really proud of you and happy you got into your 1st choice, H. Besides, maybe our real personas don't clash nearly as much as our online personas :). Good luck on S, but I'm sure you're in there too!

Penn + HYS
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the comments, the Penn deferral was a little disappointing, but whatever... Getting into any of HYS would be amazing ;) Congrats on getting into your first choice (H), and good luck with the rest of the cycle!

Harvard
Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Harvard! I hope I can get a Boalt acceptance soon =).

thanks...
Monday, December 05 2005 at 07:00 PM

i wasn't really leaning in any direction until recently, but i think my top choice is probably harvard right now if i don't get into yale (which would change everything). what about you? is any school winning out yet? you seem poised for a clean sweep. :)

LSAT
Monday, December 19 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hi Sketchboy, Congrats on all the schools you got into! How did you study for 175 on LSAT? Did you take Kaplan prep courses? Any comment will be helpful at this point with respect to scoring high on LSAT.
