Incoming 1Ls / Re: Chiashu in Retrospect
« on: March 19, 2006, 09:39:10 PM »
wat were ur stats?

165+ and ~3.4. Lots of soft factors, so i guess that's what makes chiashu look so out of wack for me, but still...some of it's just way off base.

Hmm...I can't seem to find the updated chiashu stats, but here's mine for '03:

Northwestern--25.5%--waitlisted
Michigan--29.7%--waitlisted
Penn--18.7%--deferred (and withdrew)
Georgetown--30.1%--rejected
NYU--11.6%--rejected
Stanford--2.27%--pending
Fordham--65.8%--accepted
Iowa--72.4%--accepted
Boalt--5.5%--accepted, go figure

Applied everywhere at the same time (early Nov.)
Does this seem weird to anyone else?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Michigan deferral

sorry to hear that guys  :-[

was this an official "you are now officially deferred email" or was it the email that rj002 posted on the main 'where should i go next fall' page (he apparently got something saying we know you applied early, just FYI it will take us a while longer to get back to you" or something to that effect)?

only if i got a can't-turn-it-down aid package from Hastings, but i'm not sure how likely this is. is it true that money's tighter at UC schools for non-UC residents?
where are you leaning?

Congrats Knoroozi. You just inspired me to look at the online status check for another UC school--Hastings. Accepted there as of yesterday. Nice to get two pieces of good news today.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Iowa Scholarship

Congrats to you, too sooner.  I got the letter in a small white envelope last week (got my decision on 12/21).  As far as Boalt, it was definitely the top runner before I got the scholarship info.  Now I think Iowa is a real contender. But I'm also in the long painful wait to hear from about 10 other schools, so everything could change in a month.

MXP- thanks for the insight into the RA selection process.  what year are you? have you started your RA and if so how's it been going? is the workload hard to manage and is the work you're doing interesting? also, has it been a struggle to maintain the GPA requirement (i.e., is the environment really competitive and cut-throat)? Sorry for all the questions but any more info would be a real help.

Choosing the Right Law School / Iowa Scholarship

Yay...finally some good news after a long dry spell.

Anyone else get notice of a scholarship offer from Iowa yesterday?  It's definitely a tempting offer, financially speaking.  The strings attached: $$ is contingent on agreeing to serve as a research assistant to a professor during 2nd and 3rd years.  It's unclear how much flexibility there is with that in terms of, e.g., being able to choose the professor, or possibility of substituting journal commitments for research assistance. If any 0L or current student has the scoop on this, do tell!

Congratulations! Can you humor my obsessiveness and tell me when you went complete and where you live (i'm guessing brooklyn)?
