Harvard, Stanford. I doubt I have much chance at these schools. I have very little in the way of extracurriculurs (did a few observable/long lasting things for a club I was involved in but mainly worked through college and am not much of a joiner) and my LORs are going to be pretty weak if I can even manage to get them (big school, never been very social especially not with professors). However, I have a decent gpa (3.79) and we'll just have to wait and see how I do on the LSAT.

But I figure if I aim super high maybe I'll land somewhere in the T14 and I'll be happy.

T14 schools as a rule are required to be prettier than all the rest, it's a huge part of the USNWR ranking system.

UVA must have a lot of chairs in its library.

I dreamed about getting into Cornell for the longest time (only t14 I thought I could get into). Eventually ended up at Columbia (did better on the LSAT than I expected). Was really, really excited for the first few weeks after CLS accepted me, but now I feel kind of indifferent.

SO glad this is not me. When I applied to UVA I was seriously losing sleep hoping to get in. When I did I was on top of the world. After like a week, the excitement went away. Then the constant contemplation of retaking for $$ started. lol, that didnt happen though
