Ready to submit was wondering if any admits or current students would be willing to look at my (final) 250 draft?
Also not going to include the diversity statement, I think that the answers I've given on the attached sheets speak to it, considering their seeming ambivalence towards DSs

Checking in - finally finished obsessing about my 250 and submitted today. I submitted to all other schools in November and am very pleased with my cycle so far so whatever happens I'm excited about next year. Good luck everyone!

I had 2 people proof read it, and I proof read it like 10 times on top of that. Generated the PDF, went back over one more time, found a typo.

How many typos can you make in 250 words??? Man it was frustrating.

Nope, they do not. The first email comes when they get the app from LSAC.

You can PM me if you like. I enjoy editing things and have nothing else to do at the moment, so feel free.

They will be postmarked either

Norway

or

All your hopes are Ghana

I look forward my dad try to break the news over the phone with some kind of empathy that is remarkably similar to pity. He does not understand that it's not surprising or particularly sad :(

Why why why do I live in JAPAN. Here's to hoping they pull a Columbia and email their letters to international applicants as well, if I have one coming at me.
