Congrats! Talk about having to make a tough decision :lol:


It's kind of an awesome "tough decision" to have to make, though. Especially now that I just got into the school I really wanted pre-1L.

Yeah, I'm also really grateful to get into these schools now after my hopes were dashed last year. When does NU want a decision by?

They have an insane deposit deadline as well for OCI (tomorrow at midnight, which, even if I was 100% NU, would be impossible). Trying to get around it so I can buy a few days to think about it.

ETA: working on this with admissions. Normally their date looks like 7/21, which would be plenty of time to decide between NU and Mich.

ETA2: That's off-campus recruiting with the tight deadline. Apparently I'm blind :lol:.

Did anyone who got into CLS have a permanent mailing address on the East Coast?

:lol: Don't worry, I've been so excited when I've received acceptances that I've misread almost everything but congrats you're in at first. That seems like a decent amount of time to decide. Are you going to go visit either place? You really can't go wrong with any of those schools.

Wow, awesome cycle for you, keg411, Congrats. I know if I wanted to work in the NY/NJ area I would choose NU over Michigan if Cornell isn't possible because of past OCI deadlines. A guy I went to high school with just graduated from NU and there was a crazy amount of NY area firm jobs that were available to people, he said.

Congrats on everyone getting acceptances. It is exciting to lurk and see the results. Yes, I am pretty lame.

At any point is not being dinged from a school (say, Michigan) actually good news?

Many acceptances from MI have gone out, as have some rejections. I have received neither.

Does this indicate placement in a Maybe/Wait and see who goes to HYSCCN pile?

Hey, so sorry to sneak in here, but I'm actually in at NU and Cornell (not Michigan, keg411 is AWESOME), and am pretty sure it's pretty cut and dry that i should go to northwestern yeah? Cornell absolutely will not let us go to their August Job Fair in NYC which is essentially their OCI (their actually OCI is tiny on campus, 20-25 firms). I'm excited to hear that Nwestern opens up possibilities for NY, that's where I'd like to be next summer. Do you think you could elaborate more on your high school friend's experience in a pm? I really appreciate your time, I know this is asking a lot. Many, many thanks!

Hmmm... went complete 7/7 here too, but doubt date means anything.

Just got into NU...can't tell you how excited I am!!!! NU has always been my dream school. This is my first T-14 acceptance also. Yippee :P

Work experience apparently does matter because I am ~top 10% at a mid-T2 school, but I have significant work experience. So, to those of you with slightly less impressive stats, there is hope. :wink:

Ug, so I couldn't get a 2nd prof recommendation until way late. Penn and NYU were willing to look at my app beforehand, and just added in the 2nd one, but Columbia pretty much told me not to bother applying without the 2nd one. So it delayed the whole app until the very beginning of July, rather than mid-June as I planned.

To add to the data (and to tell someone, since I don't talk about this stuff at work), in at Columbia via email at 4:33. Went complete 7/7.

I could use some shockingly good news... hopefully the 7/7 date DOES mean something.

Looks like it means one week of completion.
So basically CLS seems to go like this:

PENDING (2 weeks) COMPLETE (one week) DECISION

Yeah - seems right. Although considering I haven't gotten decisions anywhere else on the normal timeline... I'm assuming this will be another.

Approximately top 5% at Fordham (they give us a 10% bucket but no more info than that).
