Additional info & updates

THE BOTTOM LINE AS OF 6/9/06:
-----------------------------------

CHICAGO: Chicago, here I come. I applied to Chicago with very little specific knowledge about the school or its program. I worked to correct this by doing some research upon gaining a surprise acceptance in February. Since then I have been nothing but impressed by all that Chicago has to offer. Following a great admitted students weekend there and a disappointing one at Boalt, I sent in my tentative acceptance on April 10 and my official acceptance on May 9.

COLUMBIA & NYU: From day one I really wanted to study in NYC. The programs themselves and so many outside forces were drawing me there, but it would seem that Columbia and NYU admissions officers feel somewhat differently. Columbia has deferred me three times now and NYU has done so once. I just found out that I am on Columbia's super double secret waitlist, about which they will update me in July. Odds are, that nothing is going to change and Chicago is too good to keep waiting anyways.

BERKELEY: I'm led to believe that Boalt's IP/Technology law program is the best one going, but I was severely disappointed by their admitted students weekend. On the heels of the Chicago weekend, I came to realize U of C is everything Berkeley is not, which served to make my Chicago decision that much stronger. It goes without saying, though, that the Bay Area as a place is amazing.

GEORGETOWN, DUKE & MICHIGAN: All are great schools, but I am lucky enough to have been admitted to and gotten better feelings from Chicago. Regardless, Andy Cornblatt is my hero and I feel badly that I am letting down his young son by not staying in DC.

FLORIDA & GW: Safety schools, but great schools nonetheless. Any prospective would be lucky to go to either.

PENN: Never wrote the "Why Penn?" essay or showed sincere interest.

NORTHWESTERN: I'm coming straight from undergrad and they just don't really accept children like me.

HARVARD: No dice...

STANFORD: Simply out of my league from an admissions standpoint. It's a shame that I won't get to work with Larry Lessig, but their decision was fair enough.

You've already gotten into some great schools. I'm jealous of your numbers, but congratulations on your schools thus far, and good luck on your pending apps, and in the next three years of your life. :) Keep us updated!

I am getting so antsy about NYU too! The day I got my Harvard deferrel letter I KNEW I would be getting something from them -- no other day has felt like that yet. Sigh. Good luck!

procrastinating?

Congratulations on all your acceptances! With all your choices, have you ruled out Florida? If so, if you would consider letting them know by withdrawing, I would be very grateful! My fianc is on the waitlist there and it is his first choice.
