I think you're thinking about this too much. Your numbers give you a good shot. Just hang in there.


Lol yeah i came in to edit it to save people from enduring my neurosis.

Is anyone else hoping Jeremy Lin can outlive his recent success and make the Knicks an AWESOME team so we can go to Knicks games with pride like in the good ol' days?

Seems like it'd be super unwieldy for a class as big as theirs, and also they've straight waitlisted some 173/3.6s on LSN.

My unnecessarily honest inner monologue after catching up on the days events:

Maybe there will be an envelope waiting for me in NJ tomorrow!!! But probably not because Columbia hates me. I can help both of your medians! (hell, both 75th if the LSAT goes back to last years level!) LOVE ME LIKE I LOVE YOU!


Apologies for the not so humble brag but I did say it was my honest inner monologue. Haha

Congrats NYC admits!! :)

Potential class field trip!

Edit: We have to see 1) if this goes on and 2) what happens when you add Melo into the mix. But let's enjoy while it lasts :D .

Thank you. This helped. I'm sick of coming off as a pretentious/pompous dick every time I go "Well I'm still waiting for Harvard and Columbia."

"What a fucking asshole this WhiteGuy5 is," people must say to themselves.


Seriously, why do people keep asking what school I'm going to this early in the cycle?

Yeah with 2/14 postmark dates. I don't know where you guys are but I'm out here on the west coast so there is no way a VCE would make it out here by now if it had the same post mark date. I'll give it three or four days before I start freaking out about it.


Just fyi I got my VCE in the Bay Area 2 days after its postmarked date

lol +1 numbers/location twin. really going to be rushing home after work today, despite my best efforts to not get my hopes up. congrats to the new admits and good luck to everyone, really the sports thing we should be planning is tailgating a giants game, i did that this year and it's an amazing time, though that's subject to change after I experience Linsanity this weekend haha.

Manhattan resident and didn't get anything yesterday. Definitely would be encouraged to hear if any NYC residents receive the VCE today...though sounds like I missed the latest boat.

+1, I'm also in Manhattan and hoping for a VCE today. It's seeming unlikely though.

Okay, I don’t understand why everyone always says something about how I’m in at Stanford anytime I comment on another school’s thread. There are SO many people who are in at Harvard/Yale/Stanford or with full-tuition, named scholarships that are still considering other, lower-ranked schools. I don’t really understand why I’m one of the few that gets shit about it. Yes, I’m still considering other schools and until I withdraw or send in a seat deposit things are up in the air.

Don't worry about the haters. As long as you withdraw from all but one school by seat deposit deadline, you're not doing any harm to anybody.
