U Penn: Complete 7/2 --> UR 7/10--> Accepted 7/10 (withdrew)
CLS: Complete 7/11--> Accepted 7/16 (will probably attend)

Waiting
NYU: 7/2 processing--> UR 7/18 --> UR 7/20
H: Ready for review 7/5
Y: Application received email 7/10

No dings yet. I'm not sure how much longer I can realistically wait for such a small chance at H/Y. I will probably move forward with Columbia in the next day or two and get ready for OCI.


Updated info in bold above. I'm pretty sure at this point I'm going with Columbia.

Thought I'd update here, just for the LULZ.

School Rank: 60s
Class Rank: 1/4xx
GPA: 3.94

Pending Applications
Harvard - Ready for Review 6/22
Columbia - Complete 6/27 or 6/28, I forget.
NYU - UR 7/16

Decisions Rendered
GULC EA - In (Withdrew)
Penn - Rejected 7/20 via email

I feel like I'm getting ready to be dinged everywhere. My school is hated. I could be hated as well. Not putting it past them at this point.

I just withdrew from NYU, so there's at least one more slot open!

Yep (with usual caveat about H/Y). I think there will be some more movement this week for everyone when Y sets off a chain reaction, so don't give up yet. Y will pull some kids from H, who will pull some kids from CCN, who will pull some kids from MVP, etc.

I'll try not to yet. The only thing would be the possibility of missing the bidding deadlines. If I miss those, what would be the point of going anymore? To mass mail everyone? I probably wouldn't.

Yeah. In my mind, I already feel like I'm staying. I guess there are worse things that can happen than going to school for free. My school claims I'll get Biglaw down here if I want it, especially since I'm from here, so that's good news.

Totally shocked at this cycle though. No idea what happened. I'm sure you feel the same way, pballer.

That's totally f'ed up. 1K and that's it?! That's nuts. I'd be at GULC if that were all I received.

Well then that's awesome still. You from ATL or want to stay there?

Worst case scenario you could always work Biglaw in ATL for a while and move offices later on. I'm sure some firms make this easier than others. That being said, I would like to hear something back already. This is ridiculous.

Canesfan... this is the day Yale calls you and says, "My son, it has been worth the wait. Death is only the beginning. Many who die deserve life - you shall learn at Yale to give it to them."

This is their Dean of Admissions, by the way:

LOL! I cracked up at this. If Yale calls, I'd flip, mostly because I didn't even apply. Haha. Now, if H calls, I will run around chambers screaming....

You have chambers? Are you a judge? Why are you trying to go to law school again?

LOL. Yes, I'm a judge, and it's just too fun to go through law school. Who doesn't love the transfer process? :wink:

Seriously though, w.....t.....f? My app must make a nice cushion for the Adcomms' chairs.

Final update: T2 80s 4/13$ applied to mich, Penn, GULC, Cornell. Rejected from mich and penn, and no response (aka ding) from other two. Future students, if your from a low t2 and not #1, start thinking of shit to invent or go feed ppl in Cambodia or solve the Palestine/Israel shit if you wanna have a shot.

Edit: also, unless u can right your brief in rhyming couplets, go to a school that doesn't grade LRW. (end of rant)

How did you hear from Mich? I know bids are due today, but did you get a rejection?

I'm #1 and I wish I had fed the poor, taught English in Laos, or cured cancer. That whole "we only care about school and class rank" is crap. Plenty of people from lower-ranked schools were admitted to the schools I applied. I think Arrow's post on transferring needs some serious revision.

I've been thinking of posting this exact sentiment in that thread. It was probably more true a few years ago when fewer people were applying. Now that so many people from each school apply, the schools aren't necessarily going to pick the #4 ranked person over #s 5 and 6, who both also applied. If they like something about #6's softs, they'll just take her.

I've personally been passed over so far this cycle for people lower-ranked than me at my school and at other schools. It's been frustrating, because I believed arrow, but I guess that's the new normal.
