Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Harvard Waitlist
« on: June 19, 2006, 10:09:44 AM »
Yup, got rejected off the waitlist on Saturday.  The letter said that if you do well in your first year of law school at another good school to please apply for transfer admission. 

Good luck to all those who are left!

haha, good answers guys.  Yes, yes, as a cat lover and owner all my life, all of these things are true. 

But I do feel bad for my boyfriend, and I am starting to worry that if he keeps me up all night gnawing on me many more nights someone is going to find me with my head on my desk drooling at my office :)  But in the end, it doesn't matter because i'm such a push over that I refuse to just lock him out of the bedroom. 

Oh well. It takes a special person to be a cat owner :)

Oh good, a whole thread of cat/kitten people!

My kitten, Simon, is teething.  He is gnawing and chewing on everything in sight including my boyfriend and I (ears, noses, fingers, toes, arms, elbows etc...)  He knows not to bite hard, as we have worked on this, but lately he has just been nibbling on everything. 

What did all you kitten/cat owners who had kittens when they were really young do to distract your pets from you and put their chewing focus on something else?

Sorry to hear about Harvard. How did they let you know?

Oh, its okay, i'm not too bent out of shape about it.  I liked BC better to be honest, and i'm glad I have a final decision.  They sent me a letter.

Depends how cheap you are talking.  There is a new IKEA that recently opened about 35 mintues outside of the city.  Stuff there is cheap, and has lasted well for me.  Also, it's new, not used, which always thrills me.

Also, it's official, official, official, I will be at BC in the fall.  Harvard was kind enough to tell me that there was no hope of getting off the waitlist for this fall, and invited me to apply to transfer.  No thanks :)

I'm new to this so I hope this works...I'm heading to BC in the fall, too!  I just moved from South Boston (aka Good Will Hunting) to a 4BR off Comm in Brighton.  Its really nice and the area is great esp with Brookline/Coolidge Corner and Brighton Center not to far. 

I'm planning on going to the 1L coffee (anything to skip out of work!).  I have been working for 3 years so I think school will definitely be a good change.

Good luck to everyone looking for apts!

It's always nice to meet more BC people on here :)  Perhaps I'll see you at the IL coffee!  I will be there...but trying to figure out who people are from LSD sounds like it could be a little awkward...

August 1


Your waitlists are in the same city and one is at Harvard. This makes no sense to me.

I know, i know.  It has more to do with money, in truth. Both the financial aid package from BC, and the loans and payments I have to make before school starts.  I just sort of picked August 1 as the aribitrary "i'm done with this process" date.  I suppose I could change it.... 

Also, I like knowing what I'm doing and being settled.


Edit:  I called Harvard and asked them to extend my date.  They happily agreed.  I had been mulling it over anyways, and Nuke's question about my decision tipped the scales. 

Here's to waiting it out....

And yes, it will be nice to leave work, though I am quite happy where i am now.  the best part of work is that it (usually) doesn't follow you home like your reading assignments do...

It's true that work doesn't usually follow you home like reading assignments do...but my job is typically mind-numbing and i'm starting to feel intellectually starved in a way that only delving into something like law school can satiate.

Besides, i wont' have to get up as early :) 

Good luck with the apartment hunt!

I would recommend looking on craigslist now, search for places with pictures etc... or call a realtor agency such as Prudential Unlimited and see what they have in your price range etc...Craigslist, in my experience, is generally reliable.  I have found all my housing in Boston thus far using it.  Including the place I have now. 

As for the Boston Broker problem---I think I must have gotten lucky that I had a realtor who knew what he was doing.  I got my place no problem, and I LOVE it.  Granted, it is more expensive than most housing in the area, but it's worth it. 

On a completely separate note---is anyone here going to the 1L coffee...and also, is anyone as excited about leaving work and starting school again as I am?
