  • Law School Acceptances

    Thought us soon-to-be 1Ls could track our application status. Checked my email today and I was shocked to find an acceptance from Wash U in there, since they said it would probably not be until January. Nice to know this soon that I will actually be going somewhere.

    On the horizon:
    Penn (EA)
    Cornell (EA)
    Michigan
    Chicago
    Northwestern (still need to interview in a couple weeks)
    Illinois
    Iowa
    Notre Dame (sorry ND, WUSTL's already knocked you out of the running )

      Yeah seriously. :-p I haven't even gotten anything from WashU telling me my application was finished and that I should bugger off for a few weeks. :-p

      But as to where I applied, and am waiting to hear back from, in rough order of least likely to most likely to get in:

      Yale - rejected
      UC Berkeley - rejected
      Columbia - on reserve (wtf? apparently similar to waitlist, exceot they can reevaluate you any time until June)
      NYU - accepted
      UChicago accepted $
      UMich - accepted
      UPenn - deferred to regular admission then rejected
      Georgetown - accepted (small $)
      UCLA - accepted
      Notre Dame - accepted $
      Wash U - accepted -$
      George Washington - accepted -$
      Boston U - accepted -$

      And I honestly don't remember which ones I appled EA for, but at least a few. :-p

      YAY for getting in to WashU!


      Sum of edits: Squuee! Georgetown, NYU, GWU, WashU, Notre Dame, BostonU, UCLA, UChicago and UMich--> I'm in!

        Early Action the first week of October. This is the first year they have ever done EA or ED, and they said they would be sending out all the EA responses January 3rd last time I talked to anyone there.

            I don't know about csokn but I will. I have no shame. :-p Besides, a lack of response on any of the list would probably interpreted that way anyway. :-p

                  Sure. Rejections = 0.

                  Congrats on GT! FT or PT?

                  I looked into GT and a lot of other schools, and then realized I really did not want to be on the coasts, but I did Penn and Cornell to hopefully hear back from somewhere before Christmas. Now that that's over, Cornell can probably take a hike as I don't see that much of a benefit in going that far from home for what I see as not that much of an advantage, especially for full price.

                  Your list sure is kind of all over the place. Do you not have a planned market to go to after graduation, or aiming for the best school regardless of local?

                    csokn,

                    Thanks! FT for GT, and as for the all over the place thing, I wasn't sure where I'd want to be next year (and I'm still not, though it is finally narrowing, for several more personal reasons, if you're really interested IM/PM me and I'll tell you.) The only thing I knew was that I wanted to be in a big city, because after three months in Northern Ireland (though it was beautiful and nice for a change) I was going stir crazy. Thus Yale (pipe dream) and Notre Dame (excellent school even though it's in the middle of nowhere, sorry south bend-ers) are the only schools on there that don't really fit that. Berkeley was just as much of a pipe dream as Yale, so I gave that a shot, and UCLA I heard good things about as well, but the rest are basically some of the best schools in large cities that are east coast-ish (not super far away) and probably more realistic in terms of me actually going there.

                    Also, I'm slightly neurotic, and I'm surprised I got my list down to 13. :-p

                      I've noticed that is true of many mockers.

                        Congrats guys!

                        If any of you decide you want to visit Wash U and want a person to show you around or need a place to crash, let me know. PM when the time comes and I'll give you my info.

                            Hey all,

                            This is probably my first perjuries post in about a year, but I figure I may as well try to use some connections if possible.

                            I've applied to the following, and pending rejections/acceptances, if those who may be at the schools could email/im/pm me and help me with visits, I'd really appreciate it!

                            UCLA
                            Stanford
                            Colorado (accepted early, go in-state status!)
                            Kansas
                            Chicago
                            Michigan
                            Duke
                            Virginia
                            NYU
                            Columbia
                            Yale
                            Harvard

                            If you can't tell, I just hoped that a spray-bullet approach would help me to hit something......

                            Thanks, and hope all are doing well this year,

                              Unfortunately no...though I suppose my real in person response was more like squeaking. ;-)
