There's a little place caleld BoalTTT I'd like to introduce you to...

Not to mention the tenuously ABA-accredited Columbia :)


IMO Chicago edges out Boalt in California (especially in LA/SD), and matches Columbia.


On a serious note--are you serious?

Me too. Decision forthcoming?



I hope so. If Duke sends me something soon I'll have 2 out 3 decisions (waiting on Vandy's in the mail right now). I honestly have no clue when UVA is going to move. I haven't heard a single thing since I went complete--no updates, no emails, nothing.

Good luck! I got waitlisted at UVA last week. I've been seeing a lot of movement from Duke and Penn, and Berkeley's FR should be coming out soon. This could be a very good or bad week.

Scholarship letter mailed 2/16
Scholarship form received 10/16

It would take a huge number for me to even consider Duke. Soooo, I'll be withdrawing about 30 seconds after I open the letter.

My status updated to "Decision made 2/11" but my letter came in on 2/12. No way I live close enough for the letter to have mailed on the second date and gotten it the next day.

Mine has the decision day and the mail day at the 15th. I still haven't received anything, and Florida isn't all that far from North Carolina.

Probably wouldn't even consider them unless they at least matched what I got from Michigan.

Mine came 3 days after the mailing, but it was supposed to be a 2 day voyage according to usps.com. (FL)
