Extra Curricular Information

Attending University of Chicago - one of the best schools in the country! I couldn't be more excited. Anxious to start!

----

Currently have 3 years working experience in marketing / business @ a very large, well-known company.

Some volunteer work, nothing hefty. Studied abroad for a semester. Employed throughout college - both internships and "paying the bills"-type jobs.

Numbers are correct now that cycle is over. My first LSAT was a 164, but included a statement as to what happened (and it was a legitimate excuse).

Scholarship info is 3-year combined total, not per year. I hope that's obvious if you're going to be somebody's lawyer. :)

Additional info & updates

4/26: Headed to University of Chicago next year - just sent in my $500 seat deposit. Can't wait!

4/23: Finally waitlisted at NYU. WTF took so long?!?

3/31: About 90% sure I'm going to go to UoC. Asked them for more money... long shot, but with my $60k from NU it can't hurt.

3/23: $20k/year @ Northwestern. Not bad, but unfortunately not enough to oust UoC.

3/15: Visited Boalt (Berkeley) this weekend and met with Dean Tom... if you want any deets on my impression of campus / the area / etc, send me a message.

3/8: Withdrew from Georgetown, Austin, Michigan, Boston, and UCLA. Aaah, I just threw away a lot of money.

3/8: Heading to Berkeley this weekend since their ASW is the same weekend as U Chi/Northwestern's. Excited to see the school. Any tips on what's cool around campus?

3/5: Went to U of Mn's ASW today. Not impressed. I knew that loving it was a long shot but I was hoping for some bargain law schooling since I'm a resident. Knowing it's not the right place for me makes my decision to go into terrifying debt a little easier though.

2/28: Filled out Berkeley's Matching Scholarship form and wrote an additional essay. Cross your fingers, amigos, because their tuition is expected to increase to over $50k/year. Eep.

2/27: $20k/year from Boston. I should really start withdrawing from places I've ruled out. I've narrowed it down to UoC, Northwestern, and Berkeley for the most part. NYU could be in the running if I knew whether I was accepted.

2/24: Wow - $10k/year from UoC. Wasn't expecting a scholarship from them... kids, it pays to fill out your finaid early!

2/23: Info about Hyde Park for those considering UoC: http://chicago.timeout.com/articles/features/82893/whats-wrong-with-hyde-park

2/18: IN AT BERKELEY!!! So excited. I was not expecting that with my GPA. Aaah! I have NO IDEA where I'm going to go.

2/18: According to its Twitter (@BoaltAdmissions), Berkeley is emailing admissions today.

Also emailed U of Mn director of admissions today asking for more scholarship money... we'll see what he says.

2/17: WL @ Virginia. Will probably withdraw since I definitely prefer UoC to Virginia. All I have left to hear from are Berkeley and NYU now - but since I would love to go to either so I feel like I can't move forward with any decisions until I hear from them. :/

2/13: WL @ Columbia... and they don't tell you if you're in until, like, mid-May. How does that work for ANYONE?!

2/8: Rejected @ Stanford. Nuts. Looks like applicants with higher grades / LSAT also got rejected, so I guess this means it wasn't personal (e.g., my personal statement). Crossing my fingers for Berkeley.

2/1: Dinged at Yale. With my GPA I'm not surprised, but it was worth a shot. Can't really say "onward and upward" with this one, since it's the best - but I can say "onward!"

1/31: Financial aid = applied for!

1/27: Rejected at Penn. Per my personal rankings, I'm not too upset, but it is a great school. Onward and upward!

1/26: Visited U Chicago and Northwestern this weekend - I have friends at both law schools. Wasn't very smitten with U Chi, which surprised me. Send me a message if you want some insider / first-hand pros & cons on either one.

1/19: Received Mich info today - $45k scholarship over the 3 years. Could use this as leverage with Northwestern if it comes to it. Also received BU, with no scholly info... srsly?!

1/15: DENIED at Harvard. It was a long shot anyway with my GPA - so no hard feelings, H.

1/14: In at U Chicago!!! I've been so lucky with my acceptances so far. Really excited to hear back from both of these great schools. Probably attending their 1/25 reception if anyone is going.

1/13: In at Northwestern!!! So excited. This is the first school/ city combo that I'm really excited about.

1/13: Knowing that Chicago is making phone calls this week (via their awesome Twitter), my heart was racing as I answered my phone from an unknown number this morning. Turns out I got into BU. Which is a great school, but not what I was hoping for this morning. Oh well, another acceptance under the belt!

1/12: I believe I'm under review at Columbia, according to some correspondence with admissions. And come on, Chicago, call me!!!

1/11: Email from Dean Tom @ Berkeley. I have been passed on to the committee for review. So, I didn't "wow" Dean Tom, but I haven't been waitlisted... yet. :)

1/6: Waitlisted at UCLA. I'm way above their 75th percentile for LSAT, and above their median GPA (remember, my numbers are fudged a bit on this site)... so, that's annoying.

12/29: No big activity or acceptances for nearly 2 weeks - I'm becoming adrenaline/dopamine-deprived.

12/22: Under review at Chicago.

12/18: Complete at Columbia. I wonder if all applications take roughly 7 weeks to complete, or if mine was particularly hairy for them?

12/17: Accepted at Michigan! There was a great personal note included, that referenced my essay.

12/12: Received scholarship info from MN. $18k/year or $54k total.

12/11: Accepted at U of Mn. Phone call, middle of the day.

12/2: Interviewed for Northwestern, locally. Interview went really well, and I enjoyed learning more about NU.

11/27: Accepted to Georgetown! Found out via snail mail. It was a small letter, so I thought it was a reject, but surprise!!!

11/20: Rejected at Duke. I had a non-academic probation incident my freshman year, which is likely the only reason I didn't get in.

11/11: Accepted to Texas! Phone call mid-afternoon.

regarding U of M

howdy! i m not sure at the point, i got the call last thursday near COB time n the guy said they were gonna mail out my admission package. I read on TLS that you could only know abut ur scholarship when u receive the package. I v been on a lonnnnnng road trip since Sunday so I wont know it until early January. well, realistically, either columbia or nyu i guess. i might reconsider if i get some scholarships from michigan, northwestern, berkeley or pann. i wish i finished my apps earlier cuz the wait is driving me nuts. I saw ur cycle s going pretty well, i hope our nubmers largely parallels the overall app outcomes cuz I so want a T14 ad at this point. good luck on ur cycle n merry x'mas!

Hi

Hey - I saw your comment on my wall. In answer to your question, I do plan to apply to Yale even though it is a long shot. It's my dream and I figure it's worth $87 to know I didn't give up on a dream. I hadn't planned on applying to Harvard, but my LSAT score was a little higher than I expected, so now I am considering it. I had a dream a couple weeks ago that I got in there and UVA, and I just got into UVA yesterday, so maybe it's a sign. Thanks for the encouragement, and good luck with the rest of your schools!

thanks!

nice! congrats on the acceptance!!!

Wednesday, June 03 2009 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptances! To answer your question, I applied Early Action (non-binding) to Cornell. I withdrew from there and Michigan because I wouldn't choose them over Penn, and I might as well free up a spot for someone else.

Congrats

Congrats on all of your acceptances! I noticed your comment and Duke and wanted to offer my sympathy. I had to report a rather petty disciplinary incident as well. It's a shame schools blow up relatively minor offenses into huge transgressions. Looks like you got into some other awesome schools, though!

Wednesday, January 20 2010 at 07:00 PM

My little incident involved exactly the same thing, which at my college is apparently treated as a horrible crime, haha. I really like William and Mary so far, but I'm hoping for an acceptance from Emory.

berkeley %$&!()#*)%!&#)!

hey, yeah it was such a blow, well i guess they really r just UGGPA suckers. I got an email from them on Jan. 14. Congrats on your Michigan admission! The two schools in Chicago and Michigan are three of my fav schools n u got'em all! I am sooooo jealous haha good luck on everything!

Tuesday, December 29 2009 at 07:00 PM

similar numbers! i'm really still waiting to hear from schools (applied in early january :T) but good luck on the rest of your cycle :] congratulations on great schools! ^^

Thanks

Thanks for the well-wishes. Good luck to you too! Can you tell me how to find the UChicago Twitter feed you mentioned?
