Where should I go next fall? / Re: UCLA v. Boston College ($$$)

I will die from depression when I'm at BC and the sun sets at like 3:30p during the winter.

Applying to schools in Chicago so I could be with my SO...who I broke up with in January.

I sent her an invoice for the app fees.

that's harsh.

another mistake: A HUGE retarded typo on my DS. Which I could've sworn proofreading 1,000 times. It was too personal to have a random person proofread it for me...

Well I obviously lost interest if I can't even find the form . . .

I wonder if it was a mistake to not stay on, but then again, I don't particularly even like the West Coast.

How can you not particularly like the West Coast? Where are you from?

Law School Applications / Re: Waitlisted.

Mostly logistical questions...not any questions along the lines of how likely am I to get off the waitlist. I know they know I really want to get off the waitlist, so I'm not going to be overtly annoying about it. I'll call them back up in the future just to check if they received my package.

You sent a video DVD?

Also what do you say in these phone calls?

It's not my DVD, it's a college publication DVD that I was featured in...it's not like I filmed myself begging to get in, lol. It's a short DVD and it comes inside a brochure for prospective students. Since I'm featured in it, I thought I'd show them a little bit more about me and what I've done during ugrad.

These phone calls were basically me thanking them for being waitlisted and asking a few questions. I sounded pathetic because apparently UCLA's law school is technically called UCLA School of Law, which I always say backwards as UCLA Law School.

Oh, haha.

Mmm I think it was about 3 or 4 weeks ago.  Late March or early April.

Yeah...they say return it within 3 week of its date...obviously to decipher between who really has continued interest and who doesn't.

Well my SO just was the first person off the Vandy WL (I'm totally bragging because I'm so proud... I apologize ;))

But this is what he did:

- Flew to Vandy, took a tour and met with an admissions person.
- Sent in an additional rec, updated resume and LOCI through snail mail (which the admissions said they appreciated because most do email, and snail is more personal.
- Emailed the guy we met about a month after the snail mail package.


1. I would fly to LA if it weren't TOTALLY unrealistic to do in the spur of the moment.
2. I sent add'l rec, and a snail mail package with a letter, brochure and DVD that my undergrad college featured me (and my dad) in to speak to prospective students about my college experience--PM me if you want to see the video online.
3. I sent an e-mail and several phone calls, and several more will follow...

oh yeah, and today, my professor just wrote me a kick ass waitlist supplemental recommendation and I hope it helps!

I do too!  Not that I have a personal agenda or anything...

You should know by now that nothing would make me happier than you getting off BC's WL.

I do?  :o

Yeah, you do. If my voice had any power to it I'd write you the best LOR.

Whether they take him off the waitlist or reject him.

Incidentally, I'm waitlisted at UCLA as well, but I lost the response form.  So I guess I inadvertantly withdrew?

Oops.
Was it over 3 weeks ago that you were WL'ed?
