I got it too! Where are you interviewing?

Oakland. I'm really excited to meet TLSers at this! It seems like we'll be spending quite a bit of time together during the selection week! I'm still so shocked and excited right now!!!

Yep! Unfortunately though I had already made plans to come to the April one. I don't think my tickets are refundable. I would rather go with the rest of the group though, so I'm just going to eat the money. :(

I'll be excited to meet you! You should definitely double check though (and I'm sure you will) because I got some tickets that were supposedly nonrefundable but I was able to get a refund for 80% of the ticket cost.

Just reading over the #'s of AA women and men in T14 the last few years, and damn those are really small numbers.

AA male, got into SLS today and Berkeley a couple weeks ago. Still waiting to hear from everybody else.

Random question: anyone know when/how scholarship info comes out? I have no clue and am having trouble finding info.

Congrats on SLS and Cal my dude! Pretty much invalidates the "applying late hurt you" theory though 8)

ETA: You got me with your ninja edit.

Really? That gives me hope! I'm excited to meet everyone too! I'm hoping for an all TLS AnBryce class!!! Even though getting an AnBryce means I'll have to turn down my dream school. I'm still trying to make peace with that.

Dinged at UMN. Really surprised that it took them over 2 months IR to ding me, as I would have thought I was an auto-reject there.

Edit-Not a good Friday for me, decisions-wise, as I just got dinged by Harvard, but we all knew that was coming. As an aside, though, Harvard does have the nicest rejection letter so far.

when did you submit to Yale?


also in news that pales by comparision, in at Michigan today and invited to apply for the Darrow. She might tell everyone this but Dean Z said that she had already sent out all her Darrows and my app made her decide to send one more.

For some reason if I were to get the full Darrow I would seriously consider it. Idk there's something about Michigan I really like
