thank you, all!  i *really* appreciate the love and congrats, because i know how totally psyched i am for other people when they get in places too, regulars and newbies alike.

Congrats!  Boalt is a huge deal.  So Boalt is ahead of MICHIGAN for sure due to location?  How come you're so set on Cali, just out of curiosity?

it's not for sure, but the location is important since i want to practice in CA.  i've lived in socal my entire life, and i LOVE it here, my family is all here, my bf and his family is all here, and (without having lived anywhere else) i really think it's the best place to live.  it all depends on the person, of course, but this is my true home.

i'm also thinking boalt's grading policy makes an academic environment that is the best for my personality.  i don't like having competition between students, though i compete with myself, so having "high pass" will still keep me motivated.

it's too early for me to completely rule out schools, because a lot can change in the next 5 months, including an engagement, which might entice me to stay (though i think it would mostly just entice me to stay in-state, rather than in LA).  much to think about in the next several months...

Congrats Pookie.......I'll take the fact that I didn't get a call as the Dean being too cheap to call me long distance.

Did they say when you'll get paper notification?

Congratulations, Pook! I've been monitoring your progress (and that of other LSD folks) and I'm really  happy for you. Berkeley's just a five-hour drive, remember! (I won't offer any more free advice. Enough of that at the law school forum, eh?)

Congrats!!  It sounds like Boalt, in addition to being a generally awesome school, is a great fit for you.  Yay!

eh?  what's that D word?  it's a 1-hour flight!  :)

more details from the phone call:  they're sending the packet in mid-january (no clue why so late, i wasn't going to ask), and they're paying for my (and every other admittee's, i'm sure) flight to visit in april.

bf: "what'd you say back?"
me: "thank you so much, you made my day?"
bf: "day?  you told him day?!  it made your year!"
me: "think they'll revoke my acceptance?"

 :D
