Would it be tacky if I put and Ode to Cardozo in here? To try to convince the adcomms to hurry along with my application and hopefully render an acceptance?

I'd like to do it to the tune of this song my mom's best friend taught me (they've known each other since freshman year of college and I think that's pretty darn neato)... it goes something like "Oy oy oy, zeta veta zoy, what have you done to my little Yiddish boy? Send him to college to learn to read and write, and he brings a shiksa home on Yom Kippur night"

Hahahaha. That happened to me, kinda. I was the shiksa, and it wasn't Yom Kippur, but momma wasn't very happy.

lolll! freshman year my then-boyfriend and my best friend Amy were hanging out and his mom called him. We (he, I, Amy, and Amy's boyfriend) were all planning on going to his house for spring break. The phone call was very loud and my friend related to me that his mother yelled: "I sent you to Jewish school so you'd bring home an Adam and an Aleeza, not an Amy, an Archie, and a Sibley!"

My current boyfriend's family is much kinder. I was home alone for Christmas and New Year's because I couldn't take off of work and my family went to Key West... so I went to their house for Christmas. Their reaction? "I'm surprised her mom doesn't want her at home for Christmas." And then they took me out for Chinese food =D
I also went with them for Thanksgiving. His elderly society aunt did ask my last name, but if you don't know the spelling it could be Jewish so I think I squeezed by there.

That's awesome. It's weird being the non-Jewish girl in a group of orthodox Jews. Now reform and conservative are a lot cooler about it. I grew up in a Jewish neighborhood in Memphis. It was near the orthodox synagogue, but Memphis has the largest reform/conservative synagogue in the US, so mostly they lived in the neighborhood (they didn't have as many qualms about driving to temple). I think that's one of the main reasons I applied to Cardozo, I'm just used to being around Jews, and I know quite a few people who have gone there, lol.

Just in via voicemail :-) Wish I hadn't missed that call, haha!

Went complete on 1/20. Dean's merit scholarship and public service scholarship? Not sure what that is exactly, but I'll sift through these posts since I remember someone else talking about it as well.

IN VIA VOICEMAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stuck in a meeting at work, saw the 212 number, flipped out and had to restrain myself from racing outside to take the call.

This was my top choice school and I am beyond happy :) Only way I wouldn't go would be if Fordham says yes.

Mine still says "Complete and under review", 1/6/2010, even though I already got the call. Maybe they wait til they're done calling and change them all at once?

Before facebook allowed out-of-network groups I created one about you for my school. It was quite popular. Right up there with my other group, I Like to Pretend (school) is Hogwarts.

I got the call last week and my status says "Decision rendered and sent" as of 2/4. I don't know exactly when it changed because I checked my status on 2/3, saw that, freaked out, and THEN checked my voicemail.

Sooo if there's suddenly a seat deposit on my page, does that mean acceptance or just a random update? My status went to "decision rendered and sent" on monday and I'm too impatient to keep waiting for that darn letter.

Man. I'm the world's worse at checking my voicemails... I hate it, hate it, hate it. Well, I just did hoping there would be a nice voicemail on there... I had 15. 10 from my mom, 1 from my sister, and 4 pocket calls that I will blame on my fiancé. I think I heard him go to the bathroom in two of them.
