Just got WUSTL too. UVA was one of those "hidden" ones for me
Not Berkeley I don't think. They seem to care about softs more than other schools. Also, if you look at Chiashu and LSN, you'll find that many 169s get accepted to Columbia and the like and many get rejected. So softs must play some sort of factor, at least on those borderline cases. Your numbers however are not borderline to any school, so I think you're fine. Stick with the T14.
Law School Applications / Re: Just sent in all my apps and now I'm very depressed, anxious, kicking myself,etc« on: October 30, 2008, 02:19:08 AM »
I wrote "1004" instead of "2004," had "UHHHHH" at the end of my awards section on the NYU app (something went wrong with my common info form) and had "Boston University" at the top of my USC diversity essay, lol.
I can't seem to submit an application without reopening it and finding some small error. It's usually just one small error per application and is not a typo. It's in the actual application, where you have to fill in the fields. For example, on my most recent one, I put "1004" instead of "2004" regarding when my mom graduated with her PhD, lol.
I know the obvious answer is to proofread better, but that doesn't help me much now because I've already sent them off. When I find these small errors, I normally write an email clarifying it.
Anyone know how much this might affect the admissions process?

UVA, Michigan, Columbia, Texas, Notre Dame, Michigan State (offered me full tuition lol), William and Mary, Temple, and University of Illinois (also offered me pretty much full tuition). They aren't clear defined offers for full tuition, but the email they sent pretty much implied I would get it.
I applied to a bunch of schools before the LSAT. Wish I would have waited.
