I also regret not being able to go, as it would be awesome to meet everyone. It was really short notice for me, but in all honesty, I'm already very sold on Stanford. They're the obvious front-runners for me!


This. I probably would've been able to go if the hotel discounts hadn't expired. Oh well, I'll just celebrate the cycle with my old teammates this weekend instead.

I don't have a very legitimate reason not to go, I do need to check it out at some point before I make an impossible decision on where to spend the next 3 years...but Penn (where I'm an undergrad) has it's annual Spring Fling concert/festival this weekend. It's a big deal on campus and it's my last one as a senior so I chose that over ASW. My own fault I guess :roll:

Someone from BLSA was willing to host me. I'm sure there's still room with current students, if you'd still like to come. I wish you guys could make it!

HUUUUGGGGGEEEE congrats to the new Stanford admits and to everybody honestly!!! We are so awesome. As the good news train pulls in I just figured I'd add my 2 cents. I got a full ride to NYU and have officially decided that that's where I'll be in the fall!


Congratulations! :)


+1. I would kill for your cycle. You must have some ridiculous sorts to be killing this cycle the way you have :D . Again, congratulations.


Thanks and honestly I don't think I do since I'm still a lowly undergrad lol but I will never question blessings. I'm sure you'll be quite fine yourself wherever you go!

Dinged at Harvard. The only rejection I have received. It should not be suprising but still a disappointment. I will be probably be taking full ride at UGA or 95K from Vandy.

Congratulations to all of you. You guys have such great offers at some really great schools and those of you who can stay on the waitlists will have acceptances from some even better schools. Good luck with your law school experiences and your careers. If any of you are in Atlanta, please send me a PM.

Sorry to hear about Harvard :( . If you are planning to practice in Atlanta, you can't do much better than a full-ride to UGA. Good luck to you!

If you happen to (still) be on it, would you mind updating this on the lovely WL spreadsheet?

Waitlisted this morning at Harvard, about to withdraw. Hopefully that bumps folks up on the wait list so they can get in the school of their dreams! For all intents and purposes my cycle is over. Going to send my deposit to Yale to join the Class of 2016!

I withdrew from Northwestern, BC, Georgetown and Columbia. Bout to pull from Penn too. Looks like it's Harvard or Yale, so hopefully these fine schools scoop up the talent that is waiting.`

Long time lurker here. I've narrowed it down to Chicago and Michigan, but I'm leaning towards Chicago. Any thoughts? Is anyone else here going?

I didn't get shot. Taking that as a positive. When I asked about the neighborhood one of the professors RAVED about the gentrification in process.

What else could one expect from a UChi Economist and Law Prof? Still, that and other things made the decision easier.



It's nice to know people aren't shot on sight as the news makes it sound. :D

I looked at your profile. Does this mean that you are taking Chicago over Harvard and Stanford?

OH, I thought that the ASW was just that awesome that you decided to forgo Harvard and Stanford.

So what made you eliminate it in such strong terms?

By the way wormfather, I was at UChi's ASW also and when the dean made that comment about hoping not all of us accepted UChi I was stunned...that's what did it for me lol
