Finally got my apps in as of 11/24/06. NYU is still pending as I wrap up the essay for their IILJ Scholars program, but hopefully it'll be in by the end of the weekend.
11/29/06 - NYU and IILJ apps are in.
12/08/06 - Got an e-mail from TStock re: phone call, so I'm assuming my HLS application is complete.
12/12/06 - Okay, NOW my HLS is complete.
12/14/06 - Got TStock call.
12/18/06 - IN AT HARVARD (by phone)! Freaking out, and drinking.
12/27/06 - Got home from holiday to find NYU acceptance in the mail...big manilla envelope. Also went to post office to pick up HLS acceptance materials: a priority-mailed box containing a binder of information (in sexy HLS crimson...gotta love it).
I think I've decided to withdraw my app to UVa (or just not complete that in-state status form I've been neglecting). Don't get me wrong: I am a huge fan of UVa in general, the law school in particular and Charlottesville perhaps most of all...I'd recommend all three to any and everyone...but after four years there I want a new environment. So I hope all the other UVa fans out there appreciate the improved odds :-)
01/23/07 - IN AT YALE! Only moderately cogent after receiving phone call (partly because I had already had some drinks in preparation for the SotU). w00t! :-D
01/24/07 - And got a Columbia acceptance in the mail today (large brownish envelope), w/ an offer of a Hamilton. I'd like to say I'm celebrating the same way I did YLS and HLS, but unfortunately I'm still a little hungover from last night's celebration...but am quite happy nonetheless :-)
02/12/07 - Huh. Somehow got into UVa today, despite having sent an e-mail withdrawing my application several weeks ago. Haven't gotten any official admission letter, just an e-mail from a current student involved in some extracurricular group, welcoming me as an Admitted Student...we'll see how this pans out, but I guess it never hurts to have another option :-)
04/03/07 - Offered a Dillard at UVa...putting a move back South back on the table, at least for the time being.
04/23/07 - Going to YLS, the ASW sold it. New Haven, here I come : - )
