167 PR with no GPA and you got into those schools? You outdid your numbers. PR boost is not that large. Getting columbia and Berkeley with no GPA is pretty impressive.

Congrats on Stanford though I'm really confused. Shouldn't you have been admitted/attending Yale? I would really love to see the applications of admitted URMs to Yale

I didn't ride out Penn's waitlist because I feel like Georgetown is a better fit for me. I want to do soft IP stuff and hopefully I can do something with entertainment and Georgetown just seemed better for that. Both schools had great IP programs but Georgetown had more of a entertainment/media focus, even when I was looking at firms who had strong entertainment/media/sports law practices I saw more Georgetown grads and hardly any Penn grads. I was trying to write LOCI's last week and Penn was the only one that I was having trouble coming up with reasons as to why I wanted to go, I was pretty much coming up with, "It's Penn and Penn is awesome," whereas with Georgetown I wound up cutting things out because my letter of continued interest was turning into a novel of continued interest.

Sounds good to me, Psi. If you're where you want to be then that's all that matters. Good luck!

No. However, no one ever confirmed my request to be taken off the WL. So... maybe I'm still on it?
