Congrats everyone!

Bloom, you're doing very well!  Let me know if you plan to go to the Illinois ASD.

I think I will go. I'll let you know.

To be fair, my cycle is going well, but its all targets. I applied to alot of targets, hoping for $$. If you look at my 6 reaches right now, i'm currently 0-1-1.

Congrats to everybody. Good to see some of us are getting great acceptances.

Also, for me, cardozo with $25k a year and IU-B with $15K a year.

Congrats, you globe trotting vagabond, and welcome back!

Thanks, maybe i'll see you at a visit for one of our 8 overlapping schools.

I think nearly every school values high LSAT over GPA. But the ones above are the best for your scores. Georgia? Tulane?

No, wait I know what it means. Northwestern has decided that in light of THIS ECONOMY, they can no longer afford to be in the legal education business. They will not accept anyone this year, and plan to begin selling off buildings right after they send everyone home. [END SARCASM]

NO ONE has gotten an acceptence yet (as far as I can tell) that says nothing about whether you will be or not.

If you want to get into their heads, they probably decided to wait until they had a good number of applications so they could compare them and try to build a CLASS. Also, I would guess, given NW's reputation for business focus and liking for people with work experience that in the current economic environment they have an even greater increase in applicants this year than other schools. Many of whom may have MBAs from Kellogg School of business, which is after all, right next door.

I've seen anecdotal evidence on TLS that northwestern's reported applications on LSN are actually down this year (I believe the person who figured this out took the ratio from full application to G-town to NW last year, and applied that ratio to this cycle a this moment. maybe that means G-town is up) Don't know what that means or if it is true, but I wish they'd hurry up and waitlist me so I can get on with my life.

In at Wash & Lee, also got money at Tulane (60K) and Pitt (36K). At this rate, my cycle will be over in about a week. The Pitt money throws them out of the mix, though, because in state tuition at Pitt is 23K/year, (in state tuition in PA is one of the highest in the country), and with the scholarship I would still pay about 33K overall. At Ohio state, I can pay 50K overall without a scholarship (which i'm hoping to get, btw) and have the same placement in my region of Pennsylvania, for the most part, as well as a much better regional reach. I really like Pitt, so it kinda sucks.

Damn bloom.  Your cycle is giving me cycle-envy.

All you have to do is bring up overlapping decision, and you win. These are all schools that anyone with our numbers would expect to get into. I just applied really early.

Congrats on the cash, Bloom.

Are you going to wait and see what you get from OSU and possibly negotiate with Pitt?

Yeah, I am. I know I probably won't go there in the end, but Pitt is like Gold in my home city, and it seems outside of the t14, Pitt might be the best. I doubt it will work. I mean, the only way Pitt could be in the running is if they give a full ride, and I doubt it will happen. It didn't happen to anyone last year. And there is a decent shot at close to that from OSU.
