Additional info & updates

1/24/07 - In at FORDHAM via email! After months of anticipation I finally get my first acceptance. Let the games begin...

1/25/07 - Email from Boalt saying that my application will be given to the admissions committee for further review. Treating this as a deferral and hoping for the best.

1/27/07 - Checked all the on-line status checkers just in case, found out I'm in at UC HASTINGS as of yesterday. Woohoo, I've got options!

1/29/07 - Got NYU rejection in the mail. Thin, regular sized envelope. Sad but expected...

1/30/07 - Acceptance email from BROOKLYN. Not as exciting after Fordham, but still nice.

2/2/07 - Got BU acceptance in the mail! Came in a thick, large envelope. Amazing news that has just made my weekend!

2/5/07 - Georgetown status checker went to decision today. After looking at LSN I'm hoping that acceptances come in batches...

2/8/07 - In at SU via mail with Presidential Scholarship (10K/year) Will probably be withdrawing very shortly...

2/9/07 - Michigan status checker went to decision. Feeling quite pessimistic about the letter I'm about to receive!

2/12/07 - Rejections from Michigan and Georgetown.

2/14/07 - In at UW via snail mail, came in small envelope.

2/18/07 - Checked UC DAVIS online status checker, and apparently I've been accepted as of the 16th.

2/20/07 - Got scholarship letter from BU: 15K/year. Wow!

2/21/07 - Mailed withdrawals to Brooklyn and SU. Just can't imagine going there with my other options.

2/27/07 - Called Boalt, found out I'm on the waitlist! Very excited!!! There's still hope!

3/7/07 - Waitlisted at GW via a regular-sized, cream envelope. Don't think I'll stay on the waitlist...

3/29/07 - Decided to withdraw from UC Hastings and UC Davis.

4/11/07 - Sent deposit to BU! Unless Boalt unexpectedly comes through, I'm going to Boston!

4/16/07 - Waitlisted at UCLA via a small envelope. Not sure why, but I'm staying on the WL... I just feel like I should keep it as an option...

8/18/07 - I arrived in Boston a few days ago... And while it'll take me a few days to settle in and get everything figured out, one thing's for certain: I am officially in law school!

BU LAW 2010!

what do you guys my chances are?

Not bad
Friday, September 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

You have decent soft factors, a pretty good LSAT, and a more than good GPA. Some of the schools are a reach but not out of the possibility! Best advice I have is to apply ASAP. Get those things out now!

good luck..!

I'm a foreign too and it's been 2 years since I'd moved to US.. With your GPA and soft factors, and if you can top it with a good PS too, you shouldn't have much problem getting into many of the schools that you're applying.. good luck!!!

hi
Monday, September 18 2006 at 08:00 PM

we have pretty similar numbers. every day i go back and forth on how i think this cycle will go for me....there's a lot of uncertainty. but out of all the schools you applied to, i know you'll get into a few of them! best of luck to you :)

Hmm.... Just wondering. Good luck on your cycle!

Yep...

I'll probably pick UW, but I'm going to visit Boalt in April & wait for financial aid offers before I make my final decision. Your school choices suggest you're from Seattle too...what schools are you leaning towards?

Yep...

congrats on BU

Sure. LOL.
Wednesday, August 30 2006 at 08:00 PM

But are you that eager to leave our undergrad behind?...are you leaning towards any other schools? What are your majors, BTW? Congratulations on all your acceptances so far & good luck on the rest!

I'm sorry about today, dude. Listen, you get to go to BU or Fordham, as is. I don't know if you see it the same way I do, but that's a SERIOUS achievement. Imagine being at the point where your choosing between Hofstra and St. Thomas. Georgetown just couldn't handle us! I'm obviously predicting rejection. Good luck with your future. I'm sure you'll continue to impress yourself. Take care.

BU / Fordham
Wednesday, November 15 2006 at 07:00 PM

No, attending BU or Fordham is CERTAINLY not the end of the world!

Davis hopeful
Monday, November 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptances. If you could please withdraw from Davis if you don't plan on attending, I would appreciate it. Good luck regardless!

The BC question
Friday, October 20 2006 at 08:00 PM

A few people asked me that same question, so I'll just go ahead and respond... Like many 20-some year-olds(more than realize it, I believe), I am not yet certain where I'd like to practice once I graduate. I may want to return to Seattle, I may become enchanted with the East Coast (Boston or NYC), or I may even decide to move back to my country of origin (located somewhere in the Mid East). It seems like UW, BC, and Fordham are more local schools that would be great for their respective geographic areas. But, at this point in my life, I'm looking for portability. Of all my options, I believe BU has the greatest potential for relocation, and that's why I will most likely be there next year. (And, obviously, the scholarship helped my decision quite a bit.) As for BC, I haven't even heard of the school before I stumbled upon LSN. That automatically means the school is not for me, based on my situation. From everything I hear, though, BC truly sounds like a great school!

on BU scholarship
Wednesday, November 09 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hi. I was accepted by BU too. I wonder if you had to apply for the scholarship or it just came to sweeten the offer on BU's part. thanks.
