Acceptances / Harvard - Admitted from Wait List
« on: June 10, 2005, 12:29:49 PM »
Not sure if this should go here, or over in the WL thread, but...

I got another phone call from Cambridge just over an hour ago - I'm in!

I have no idea how I'm going to get the rest of my work done today... I'm bouncing off the walls right now! Unfortunately, I have a report due in to the external auditors...

Wait List / HLS Waitlist Phone Call
« on: June 08, 2005, 09:27:19 PM »
(Already posted on XOXO - but re-posting here for those who don't cross-pollinate...)

I wasn't going to say anything until I see how it all plays out, but...

I got a call today from the HLS Director of Admissions (I am on the wait list). It was pretty much the same type of call that the deferred/admits and other late admits were getting a while back (i.e. would I go if offered admission at this point). I was stunned, and just hope I didn't come off like a complete moron. We talked for a little while (about why I want to go to Harvard mostly), and he told me I should hear back in a few days. I am, of course, freaking out. (How much would it suck if I blew my chance at HLS because I sounded like an idiot on the phone?)

Anyway, here's the part that's actually of interest to y'all - I was told that there are "a few" spots open, and I was "one of the people that they are looking at closely" to fill them. Just the impression I got, but there will probably be some more calls going out to the waitlist soon. So keep an eye on your voice mail!

Very excited! Now I just need to convince my Southern-boy husband that NYC isn't so scary. (NEW YORK CITY !!?!) :D

Hopefully a visit to CLS & NYU will help...

Acceptances / In at Penn
« on: February 03, 2005, 04:20:36 PM »
Can't find the Penn thread, so I'm starting a new one.

Via email, about 40 minutes ago (sometime after I left work, and before I logged in at home).

Before someone asks, I did write the "Why Penn" essay, although mine was a little risky because I actually told the truth: it's a very good school located in an area that offers employment opportunities for my spouse, plus we have several close friends in the area (so hubby would have a ready-made social life, and I wouldn't have to feel bad about focusing on school). I said it a little less baldly than that in my statement, but that was the upshot. Nothing about specific Penn programs at all.

My stats are at LSN - link is below.

Yay! The long drought is over! (And it didn't end with a ding!) :D

Acceptances / In at NYU!
« on: December 27, 2004, 06:18:16 PM »
Letter dated 12/22, postmarked 12/23. I called last Monday to ask if I was complete (I got a not-so-warm-and-fuzzy - but totally New York - "Yuh file's complete.").

Very happy, since I'm a native NY'er, and since I can't believe they really accepted me. I wasn't sure it was really possible to go from a TTT to a top 5 law school. I'm totally blown away.
