Additional info & updates

11/2 I got my first acceptance! I'm in at Texas. I received notification from a small off white envelope. Its a relief to know that some school wants me.

11/8 GULC acceptance in the mail today. Got a nice personal note from Dean Corblatt (except I think everyone gets this, ah well).

11/21 Mich acceptance today! I'm really happy about this one. I think Mich is definately in my top 3.

12/16 Received acceptance packet today from UCLA and USD, getting love from Southern Cal! Hopefully UCLA will be kind enough to throw some money my way.

12/18 In at ND, gotta love the Irish!

12/23 Received acceptance packet from ND, offered me a 16000/yr scholarship! This is going to be a tough decision. (especially if UMich doesn't give me any money)

12/26 Received acceptance packet from USC and full scholarship to USD.

12/27 More mail! Acceptance to Arizona plus a scholarship for 14K first year and 10K second and third years, probably not enough to sway me from my other choices.

1/9 Held at Harvard, not bad considering I was expecting a flat out rejection. Now I just get to hope and pray that I get in.

1/11 Accepted at Vanderbilt, probably won't attend.

1/15 In at Virginia! This is somewhat suprising because they say they still take the average LSAT. I think the scales still tip towards Michigan (especially because there was no mention of a scholarship).

1/22 Held at Chicago. A little discouraging but I still have a chance.

Phone call from Dean Aguilar, In at Utah.

1/24 In at U of Washington! This would be tempting (especially if I get a scholarship).

1/25 "Passed initial review" at Boalt, don't they realize they're my number one choice?

1/31 "Reserved" at Columbia, basically its a waitlist. Kinda sucks, but whatever.

2/2 Harvard call email. Is this for real?

2/5 Phone call from Toby, hope it went well.

3/5 Boalt ding, ah well. I accepted my fate there weeks ago.

In the past month, I've got quite a few scholarship offers from various schools. I appealed (successfully) for money at UMich and USC.

Leaning towards UMich right now.

4/7 Inevitable Harvard ding, really not too upset about this one.

GO BLUE!!!!

Thanks. I'm hoping my LSAT will be high enough for consideration at Georgetown. I guess I'll know by next month. I would also love to receive money from any school.

Thanks

Thanks, its comforting to know that the LSAT will be done and over with in 3 weeks. I haven't visited BC yet but from what I've seen from looking at their website and other sources it seems pretty nice. I think you should be fine with a 167 at BC if I were you I wouldn't retake, but if you think you can improve then go for it.

Just saying is all...
Thursday, September 22 2005 at 08:00 PM

you never know about BC. Ha ha ha ... Take it from me.

Hey, we have the same numbers - I'll be sending my apps out this week so I will be watching your progress to see what my chances are - good luck!

Well done

Just because everyone gets a handwritten note from Cornblatt doesn't make it any less special! Congrats on the acceptance! PS. Don't go to UT!!! :P (j/k)

Your acceptance at G-town is giving me hope! Did you write an addendum on the LSAT? Crossing my fingers that the top schools really will take the new ABA policy...

RE: Nearly # twins!

Yes, I wrote an addendum for all my schools concerning my lsat. It looks like most will be considering the higher score and the GULC acceptance is definately a good sign.

Congrats on GULC!
Monday, June 12 2006 at 08:00 PM

Good to see them leaning more toward the higher score. I'm hoping they do the same for me. Good luck w/ the rest!

Dear spud, i have nearly identical numbers to you (LSAC GPA: 3.92, LSAT: 166). I was wondering if you had any stellar soft factors or a stellar personal statement u wrote. if you have time, would u mind critiquing mine? thanks
