i find it amusing that if you get dinged by harvard and penn, round two would include yale and stanford.   :D  it makes sense to me; i think of S and Y as being two of the schools that *really* look beyond the numbers at people's stories, and you say you're nontrad.  but they're still two of the most selective schools.  so it's still funny :)  why aren't you applying to all 6-7 schools all at once, since they're on rolling admissions?  anyhoo, good luck!  hope you get in somewhere great :)

yeah - i know it's strange.  but ya never know when you are going to hit a sympathetic adcom.  I was looking at LSN - was really surprised to see lotsa people getting in at elite schools while being dinged at more than one of the "lower ranked" schools.

why not apply all at once?  fees.  if I get into one of these three, I'll be happy - they are all semi-close to home - I'm from Albany, my wife is from NYC - so I really would prefer  the east coast...  i got a bambino on the way - i wanna see him/her on weekends when possible... 

so we'll see.  in the meantime, I alternate between thinking I'm crazy and being hopeful...

I'd let the LSAC cut off my left testicle if I could find out all the info now.

Do you like the left one less than the right?

Definitely, the right one is awesome. The left one is just a total bastard.
