Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Georgetown Waitlist
« on: March 05, 2006, 07:02:02 AM »
I'm also on the preferred waitlist.  I think I'll forget about G-town until they e-mail in May.  This can't be a good sign for the rest of my apps.

For everyone who was quickly put on GULC waitlist, don't despair.  I was put on the waitlist there before receiving any other decisions, but I was admitted to PENN, UVA, NYU and deferred at Harvard and Columbia.  Also, I saw the profile of someone accepted to Harvard who was put on the waitlist at GULC.

Don't be discouraged by the waitlist, you could very easily be accepted to much higher ranked schools.  Just in case that is important to you.

Same here.  Waitlisted at G'town after acceptances to NYU, UMich, and UVa, and a Columbia deferral.  Needless to say, I'm not going to wait around for G'town.

Law School Admissions / Re: chances? 166/3.8+

I'm your numbers twin too. I'm in at NYU and UVA. Deferred at Penn, Gtown, & Duke. Before my acceptances, I got so discouraged at my chances at T-14 that I ended up also applying to graduate school.  Don't let people say that a 166 is going to ruin you.  Non-URMs do get into top schools with our numbers.  I got an email from Harvard today encouraging me to apply. I didn't send applications to HYS originally because I thought it was a waste of money (in large part because of these damn boards). I'm thinking now that I should have.

Good luck!

Edit: Ok, it looks like Harvard sent out a mass emailing with no regard to individual stats.  I think I'll hold on to my 80 bucks after all.

Any thoughts?  Considering my numbers, I'm not holding my breath for lots of other options.  I'm instate for Virginia and worried about the cost of living in NY.  I'm considering biglaw (NY or DC), but I also have interests in academia.

Yeah, instate at Virginia is around 28K.  The reason is that, while they are technically a public school, they receive no state funding.

I've been lurking at LSD and LSN for months, but I figured I'd emerge from the shadows with my first acceptance.  In at Virginia!
