Is anyone applying to Berkeley without a fee waiver?


How many optional essays did you do for Michigan?


Two, including a why Mich.


Oh ok.... I will have to look through my lovely book to figure out why I would want to go there.

Waiting for a decision from these schools is nerve wracking. I really hope I get accepted into my top schools, but admissions can be so unpredictable.



In other news...My Vandy status checker says decision mailed so I hope it's not a rejection or WL letter.

Historically Vandy hasn't rejected anyone in November.

This thread could use some more acceptances :lol:

Definitely, however, I'm expecting Michigan and Cornell to start sending out waves of acceptances -- URMS along with non-URMS

Have any other URMs done alumni interviews for Northwestern?

Sweet @ Yale


and I heard Kanye puts on a good show. I'm normally not a rap concert fan because it's too much fan participation, but I did consider going to his.

Although, I wish I could go see Bey again, her concerts always change my life.

Yeah I saw kanye back in the college dropout days and he was awesome so I'm excited to see how he's grown as a performer since then.

Here is the link for more info:

Is anybody watching tonight's episode? They're chronicling major events from 1940-1968. They have so much old footage, stuff I've never seen before. It's all so moving. Very well done.

I did last week.



BALLINNNN


I always loved Boalt as a child. Plus I got a fee waiver for every other school I applied to besides H and S.



Geesh I just looked at their numbers... I won't waste my little pennies applying there[/quote]

If you are short on cash, you could sell ish on E-Bay to get some $$$. I have made a few thousand dollars on E-Bay since I begun.

From applying, to finding monies to prep for an exam that determines most everything, this process dissuades many who come from humble beginnings. Heck, I work but gotta space out sending apps too because I help support my mother. It's stories like these we must bring forth to the application. It brings forth context that not every one of us were born with gold spoons in our mouths...that it took a lot of sacrifices to even get to this point of applying.

Everyone who can relate, keep your head up. You've already come so far.
