Best of luck to you in your cycle :-)

Just curious

How did you find your MS program at Yale?

1st Choice
Sunday, June 25 2006 at 08:00 PM

UChicago you?

schools
Monday, September 19 2005 at 08:00 PM

time to add a whole bunch more schools to your list. altho im sure youre a lock for NU and probably UChicago itd be a shame if things went strangely and you ended up at kent.

numbers twins?....
Thursday, June 29 2006 at 08:00 PM

...I have a feeling once my GPA is in we're gonna have some similar stats. I predict great things for you this cycle. Are you considering applying to any more east coast schools?

I don't know...
Tuesday, June 20 2006 at 08:00 PM

I'm starting to have bigtime doubts about all the T14 schools I'm applying to. I don't know if I really want 150-180k in debt looming over my head when I graduate. Plus, it's not like I could get into NU or UChi anyways =]

Good Luck
Thursday, June 29 2006 at 08:00 PM

...on September LSAT. I know it was a tough decision, but I think it will work out well for you, especially in terms of scholarship $. Kind of wish I had the initiative to retake, but the prospect of taking it again is just too daunting for me!

dusya...
Wednesday, June 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

Why are you retaking LSAT in September?

Thanks! Good luck to you too!
Monday, May 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

I'm on the fence about schools right now...I don't want to relocate, but there are a lot of great schools on the East Coast. What's your top choice?

wow
Thursday, May 18 2006 at 08:00 PM

you should kick butt this cycle. Look at those numbers.

how'd you do?
Wednesday, June 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

You think you got into that top 1% then?

Don't get down on yourself...

After all, if one 171 is good, two must be better! In all seriousness, I think that you're going to rock this cycle, and get some great scholarships at U Chicago on down. Don't second guess over the LSAT, you gave it a good shot, and now you'll never have that "what if" of not taking it. :)

I have no idea how those triple posts got on there, sorry!

Good luck!
Wednesday, June 28 2006 at 08:00 PM

Aw, well that's OK. Good luck!

Wow
Sunday, October 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

You too babe! MS from Yale, hockey, research. You should also add that you're a hot chick on your apps :)) And no way should you even worry about applying to Kent.

hey
Friday, June 02 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Michigan! You should be accepted everywhere. Good luck on your cycle! :-) Is Chicago your first choice? Northwestern?

Darrow
Thursday, June 29 2006 at 08:00 PM

Way to go on the Darrow!! Do you think you'd take it over UChicago with a smaller amount of money?

hey
Friday, June 02 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Northwestern!

congrats on the darrow! i got the email to apply for it today -- it's enough to pull me away from tons of other schools :)

Congrats on the Darrow!
Monday, May 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

That is such exciting news! So is it one of your top choices? BTW, congrats also on Northwestern! You rock!

Monday, May 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

I understand exactly what you mean-- my signficant other just bought a house in SF, so it is highly unlikely that we'll be able to leave the Bay Area for school. Now that you have the Darrow in the bag, though, I think you are in an excellent position to gun for Chicago/NU's big scholarships. Have you heard back from Northwestern about $$$ yet?

You're Golden
Monday, November 28 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Northwestern, Michigan, and that Darrow. The opportunity to attend a top law school with very little debt is amazing, and you've earned it. Thank you for the helpful advice your provided me before the June LSAT. Best wishes to you wherever you end up going.

Chicago
Friday, June 02 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on another acceptance! I think you'll make it a clean sweep. :-) So are you still leaning towards NU or Chicago, or has that Darrow have you really thinking about going to Michigan?

S2X
yay!
Friday, June 02 2006 at 08:00 PM

I knew you'd make it a clean sweep! :-)

hey girl
Sunday, October 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Any news on NU money-wise? I'm going to the ASW, by the way.

yay!
Friday, June 02 2006 at 08:00 PM

Good luck at NU!

quick question about your northwestern scholarship - was it contingent upon you waiting a year... or did you already have work experience? thanks!
