What are your numbers and when was your application complete, if you don't mind sharing. Oh, congrats too!  :)

Yeah Congrats Brenda.  The GW is deadline is July 1st right?  Sounds like they were eager to get you in there! (perhaps to preempt a GULC offer?)

Thanks!  I just heard yesterday - the Dean called me to tell me that I had been admitted and my acceptance letter will go out in the next batch of acceptances.  Yes, I applied to Georgetown but haven't heard back from them yet.  I'm at the top of my class at a T2 but our class rank tables haven't come out yet.

I had some special circumstances regarding my application (due to fault of my former law school), so I got accepted before a final grade came in.

Congrats Brenda. Did you recieve any notification in terms of your application going complete or was the first notification the acceptance from the dean?
Title: Re: Anyone get accepted anywhere yet?
Post by: Brenda22 on June 26, 2008, 01:05:33 PM
My first notice was a call from the Dean.  I don't think I officially went complete because I still am missing a grade (and therefore my class rank and letter of good standing).  I had been e-mailing with the admissions office and the Dean quite a bit, explaining the situation at my law school and why my transcript wasn't complete.

Neat, when did you apply?  I haven't heard a peep from them yet and I'm curious what the turnaround time is like...

Applied at the end of May.  They want an answer by July 4.  Yikes!  Since I have gotten the acceptance call, I have gotten three separate emails from UCLA, each with distinct information on OCI, a transfer info day, and their admitted student website. Pretty pleased with their immediate contact and onslaught of information.

I applied at the end of May.  So fairly quick turn around.  Quite pleased with the level of contact since the acceptance call - three separate emails on OCI, transfer visiting day, and the admitted student website.  They want an answer by July 4.  Yikes!  One week!

NYU - today!

Post by: random2341 on July 05, 2008, 10:17:56 AM
Waiting on HSY and Boalt!

I'm stuck with a lease that I need to break soon if I'm going to leave, not to mention a million other things to take care of before potentially moving across the country. this is pretty anxiety inducing. Stanford said something about mid-august...that's like 2 weeks before classes start.

what do you guys think my chances are at those schools as the #2 ranked student at a top 20 school?  50/50? slightly better?

thanks for your thoughts

I guess it doesn't help when your current school has yet to send the transcript that you requested a few weeks ago.  Unreal.

Thanks! Right now, I'm between Texas and Vandy... leaning more toward Vandy but I have always loved UT. Any thoughts?

Post by: AspenLizzy on July 18, 2008, 09:18:07 AM
Wow, I don't really enough about either to say.  I know Vandy is really small.  Private  v. Public.  Possibility of instate during 3L at Texas.  You've got to keep us updated.

Well, the good news is you can't make a bad choice.  I would lean towards vandy as well, but mostly because i think nashville is a blast.

In at Santa Clara, American & UC Davis.  I'm going to go to American most likely b/c I want to move to DC.  Any thoughts on American vs. UC Davis?

Post by: andrenna on July 20, 2008, 10:12:55 PM
mind if i ask when you got into davis?  what were your stats?

i'd say if you want to work on the east coast, go to american, west coast go to davis.

i'd say if you want to work on the east coast, go to american, west coast go to davis. 

I got the letter from Davis on saturday, 7/19.  Letter was dated 7/18.  Stats/soft factors: T4, top 8%, highest grade in LWR, grade on law review, senior editor of non-law review journal, deans list, merit scholarship, international volunteer experience & paralegal prior to law school. 

Good luck to you!  Davis wants a seat deposit pretty quickly (w/in a week) so maybe they will start sending out more decisions after that - I'm not sure, though.

I'm still deciding b/w the two, but as of now I'm pretty set on going to the East Coast & American...

I would be leaving USC - it's a little sad because I absolutely love the school, but I want to be a prof oneday and I think it would be that much easier coming from Stanford or Yale.

No, it's too late in the game, OCI deadlines are over, and I don't have any particular love for NYC.
