How is it going for you? Any luck?


In at Hastings and the Dean hinted at a very nice scholly so that's good! Not exactly Boalt or Northwestern, but what's a reverse splitter to do? :D


How many law schools does SF have? I forgot Hastings is in the city... I really hope you get into Boalt and Penn.

Just Hastings and USF, as far as I know.

I really hope so too. I also hope UCLA de-Waitlists me! But with my LSAT it just is not likely to occur. :(

I have a UIUC decision on deck for this Friday, which would also be a sexy acceptance :D Hastings places really well in the bay and I have ties to the area, so it's a solid Plan B for me (Much moreso than Cardozo was).

Edit: and Golden gate University.

Well UCLA and USC is looking less and less likely for me, so it's only SF in cali for me I guess. Either way I hope we at least end up in the same city for sake of happy hours ;)

I can't believe that USC and UCLA won't take you. I mean really... it's still really early for both though, why are you thinking they will ding you?

And I agree re: happy hour. Pre-disposed drinking buddies ftw!

USC is waiting for my Rothman essay. I don't know about UCLA. I pretty much gave up. Maybe they have too many Asians.

The weird thing is, that probably isn't an unlikely reason... :?

Penn's been quiet for a few days. Any guesses when the next round of calls will go out?

I did. I sent my app in mid-November.... I haven't really seen anyone else getting three UCR dates so I wonder what that means.

Went from 1/5 -> 1/11. Should I expect 3 UR dates?

BOOOOO still 12/22, then 1/5. . . you got me all excited!!


This makes me think it's a bad sign for me.


You've been accepted practically everywhere, I don't think UPenn will dare break the streak :P


U Chicago already did :/ Now nothing will hold them back. I'm seriously contemplating writing a LOCI NOW so I can at least get waitlisted. I seriously regret not applying ED.

Still at UCR 12/23. I guess I should be patient, but it has been about a month since I got a meaningful acceptance and I've had 4 WLs since then.

ETA: Right after I said this saw I got into W&M. Lolz.

Am I the only person who feels that being jerked around by each of these schools for 3 to 6 months makes me not want to attend their school. This is less of an issue with Penn who creeps up right around the 3 month mark as some others. Like NYU... I applied in the beginning of October... probably won't get an answer until June... and that is assuming that I am not placed on the waitlist... then it would not be until September until they are a week into their classes. To think, we actually have to pay to be treated in such a way. I am sorry, but if you can't look at files, group them into stacks for different contingencies, and then issue out decisions in a fairly speedy manner then I can only imagine what it must be like if you have a problem with your financial aid while attending... maybe you'll hear in six months. The whole process has completely gotten under my nerves now. It is just ridiculous.

It's ok, you will feel better once you are admitted. Also, they treat admits differently, all schools do.
