To play devil's advocate: my LSAT is only one point higher than yours (and my average is three points lower than your highest), I also had a "cake" major (but only one) and you got an early JR1 as well. The only difference between us is Stanford UG and SLS, which I think are connected, and the fact that YOU are a URM.


Ahem. Stanford History is NOT a "cake" major.

Haha, I guess it depends on the definition of "cake." No, it's not comm or sociology, but it's no chemical engineering or physics either.

Agreed, definitely more along the lines of a "muffin" or "pâtisserie" major.

I don't know if being PR gives my application more of a boost than an additional LSAT point would. It only seems to benefit me when I apply to schools that do not get many PR applicants (i.e. Chicago). I don't think NYU/CLS fits this bill. However, I see your point.

Any chance you'll actually take it, or are you sticking to HYS?

FWIW, the acceptance package is really impressive, one of my favorites of all those that I've received. They do a wonderful job with creating their image. Until now, I thought that there would be no chance whatsoever of my taking it, but I had no idea quite how huge it was. Wow.

Does anyone know if they 2-day mailed it or something? It just seems like it's getting everywhere crazy fast.

I just checked out LSN and feel reassured. Acceptances in the first round came pretty much everyday for the first two weeks.

Nothing for me here in Seattle, but with the NYU batch, I got my acceptance letter one day after California people, so I'm still hopeful that my mail is just slow here in the Pac NW.

What about the admitted student site? Is it the same username/password as your My Columbia accounts?

And congrats to everyone!
