I keep refreshing my gmail and looking in my spam folder for something...but I don't think they're at my submission/complete dates yet. Sigh.

You're probably headed for ding for sure at Penn, as horrorbusiness got dinged through ED.

USC is probably a WL, talk to Chimp about his experiences if you are interested in attending.

I wouldn't worry -- you got into better schools, plus we're number twins so I feel like you will.

I'm really worried about $$$. I figured I might have a shot at a bit of cash from Cornell. Have you received any scholarship offers yet?

No I haven't, which is a concern of mine as well but then I look at this and chill out for the time being -- http://lawschoolnumbers.com/miracle2011

Yeah, I've been using his cycle as a benchmark as well, but he also applied much earlier than I did. He also got a bit of cash from U Mich, but so far, no love. I'm sure things will work out in time... Just a bit worried at the moment... The wait is killing me...

Accepted at Fordham and Dinged at Berkeley.

Still have not submitted my apps to the rest of the T14 as I'm still missing an LOR. I'm starting to wonder if I should just wait it out until next year.


Congrats on NYU and NU JustE! I remember reading your posts from last cycle and I'm so happy for you!

Edit: Congrats on Mich too! I did my UG there, it's amazing!

I'm waiting on both as well. Out of curiosity, what are your stats and specific URM status :)

3.2 168 MA

I was waitlisted for a month by fordham then accepted about a week ago. Pretty sure I was one of the first to get the axe at Berkeley :cry: Can't say i'm surprised though!

If you were under review at Berkeley before December I think you made it past the first round. Good luck!

Thanks! I should also add I only sent 1 LOR to both of those schools. I'm starting to wonder If I should just send my Gtown and Mich apps with 1 LOR.
