Extra Curricular Information

My numbers are now the real deal as my cycle is basically done.

Here are my Soft Factors in no particular order.

I worked full time in undergrad.
My degree is in a hard science and I have an MS and a PhD from UPenn
I finished my PhD 2yrs ahead of schedule.
I speak fluent Serbian/Croatian.
I lived in Post war Yugoslavia (~2yrs)
Worked as a technology manager
I've played Guitar (Jazz) for 20yrs and payed for undergrad playing in a jazz quartet. I also play a half dozen other instruments, most with decent proficiency.
I've also taught at the college and graduate level.

Additional info & updates

My list is a bit random but I'm part of a two body move. My wife will out earn me by a long ways when we are done so I don't mind not going T14 if it comes to that. I likely won't apply to all of these schools. My list will change as my wife's list narrows.

I'll prognosticate my cycle:

Duke- Accept
UCLA- Accept
Boalt- WL/denied
Stanford- Late cycle Reject (my softs make this a tough one)
Penn - Accept
Columbia - Accept
NYU - Accept
Harvard - Deferred/denied
UMinn - Accept
11/2 UMinn got a call from Associate Dean Howland with offer + 45k scholarship
11/13- Big packet from UMich
11/20- Email telling me I'm in at Berkeley which given my GPA is a bit surprising
12-08 - Got the purple envelope from NYU and My wife got into her top choice program (columbia) so it looks like I'll be heading to NYC in the fall.
12-15-07 Got a big envelope from UPenn
1-25-08 Came home from vail to find Columbia acceptance and a Dean's scholarship offer from UMich (ie 20k/yr), which hurts because I would love to live in AA not to mention take the money but it looks like we are going to NYC.
1-31-08 The W just got an interview at Penn, so things may get interesting!!
2-19-08 Apparently I'm a semi-finalist for the IP scholars scholarship at NYU.
3-14-08 finalist email from NYU for IP scholarship
4-22-08 NYU offered a 20/20/10 IP scholarship
4-24-08 Columbia which originally offered $0 gave me 12-12-6 which is enough to sway me based on my living/commuting situation.

when did you receive fee waiver from nyu? was it a merit fee waiver?

Friday, October 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Minnesota. Exciting, and could be a good place for a family (maybe)...

Friday, October 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

...for the heads-up. Good to know. Not that I haven't been doing a mad dash home to get the mail every day for a month now anyway.

Got the call
Thursday, October 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

I got the call from Minnesota today. I like the area, and look forward to visiting and checking the school out. Good luck with the rest of your cycle!

On Michigan!

on berkeley! I'm an undergrad here right now and the boalt law students that teach some of the classes are brilliant. Good luck with the rest of the cycle.

congrats on nyu!
Thursday, October 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

hi majmun! doesn't it feel good ;)? but what about columbia? wouldn't you rather attend the same school as your wife?

Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Penn!

Congratulations on Penn
Sunday, November 20 2005 at 07:00 PM

Where are you hoping to attend?

Couple power
Monday, July 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

I'm very happy everytime I see someone apply simultaneously with their SO and it ending successfully. I hope my fiance and I can do the same. By the way i saw an LSD post, and I'm wondering why you're set on Columbia over NYU? Or do you just want NYC choices?

Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Columbia!

Monday, January 15 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on your cycle. How did you prep for the LSAT?
