Hellllloooo everybody,

3.79/170/Mexican American, checking in.

I've had my apps in since Thanksgiving, but they were all holding until the Dec LSAT score release. Hopefully that means I'll have some news in the next few weeks. :D

Good luck everyone!

Since NYU is more expensive, I would def give Michigan a look. I got into NYU and Im waiting to hear from Michigan, if I get in, I'll be looking at the money and paying them both a visit.

Hey long time lurker here. AA male 165 4.0, BUT i'm an international student studying in the US so honestly had no idea how my cycle was going to turn out (got mixed messages on whether they'd treat me as Black or not...). Sent out apps in early December (LSAC managed to lose 2 out of my 3 LOR's!!). STILL need to do my Yale 250 so I can apply. 50/50 on whether I'll apply to Stanford or not (I can't get federal aid or loans so that complicates things). Here's how my cycle is going so far:

In: UVA, Berkeley, Georgetown

Still waiting on: Harvard, Columbia, Chicago, NYU, Michigan, UPenn, UCLA

Congratulations to everyone on your offers so far!

In that case, come to NYU! Seriously, if you have any questions about the school, don't hesitate to ask.

What kind of money are you looking at as an international student? Have the places that you're in at made any offers?

Congrats on UIUC and your other amazing acceptances. I know money always makes the decision more difficult so if you have any questions about Illinois let me know. Hopefully you make it out to the admitted students weekend, it definitely sold me on the school.

So far only UVA have offered me anything. Looking at $120K total which is really attractive when you factor in the lack of student loan support. I'm just filling out the financial aid forms for the others now, fingers crossed they offer me something!

AA female. Ivy grad. Few years out of school.

In so far: UT with $, WUSTL, UIUC with full tuition and UC Irvine.
