How Well Did You Guess Your Decision?

How Well Did You Guess Your Decision?
« on: April 08, 2006, 05:50:45 PM »
So I was looking at an old thread in which us LSDers guessed our decisions before we heard back (http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,47227.0.html). 

For me, I guessed:

Columbia: WL, Rejected
NYU: WL, Rejected
Penn: WL, Accepted
G'Town: Accepted
Fordham: Accepted

My actual decisions were pretty close:

Columbia: WL, Withdrew
NYU: WL, Rejected
Penn: Accepted
G'Town: Accepted
Fordham: Accepted

A few people told me I'd get accepted to Penn outright, but I didn't dare to believe--so thanks all!   :)

There were my guesses:

BU - rejected
UCONN - rejected
Case - accepted
Syracuse - accepted
Cleveland-Marshall - accepted
Quinnipiac - accepted
WNEC - accepted

And this is what really happened:

BU - waitlisted
UCONN - accepted
Case - accepted
Syracuse - accepted
Cleveland-Marshall - accepted
Quinnipiac - accepted
WNEC - accepted

I remember that thread!  I'm not sure if I dared to post in it though. 

These were my guesses way back when:

NYU: WL
Columbia: WL
Yale: Rejected
GULC: Accepted
Fordham: Accepted
Penn: Deferred, Accepted
Chicago: Rejected


What actually happened:

NYU: Accepted
Columbia: Accepted
Yale: Who the hell knows?
GULC: Accepted
Fordham: Accepted, Withdrew
Penn: Accepted
Chicago: Deferred, Withdrew

(Guess I didn't jinx myself)

American - Ding
GMU - Ding
UIUC - Ding
UMaryland - 50/50

Cardozo - Wait
USD - Accept
Rutgers - Accept
Catholic - Accept
Howard - Accept

I guessed all of mine right, but I didn't expect to get the $$$ I got.

Columbia - Rejected / Reserved
Stanford - Rejected / Rejected
Harvard - Rejected / Pending
UPenn - Rejected / Rejected
Boalt - WL, Rejected / Rejected
Georgetown - WL, Rejected / Priority WL
BC - Accepted / Rejected
NYU - WL, Accepted / Rejected
Duke - WL, Accepted / Accepted, substantial $ (for my #s)
Cornell - Accepted / Accepted

Vandy - Accepted, possible $ / Pending
UNC - Accepted, some $ / Accepted, substantial $

I guess I'm bad at predictions.  :D

I didn't post on that thread cause I was still boycotting LSD back then (I think I'm only not now because my car has broken down and I'm stranded all the time  :'() in any event, here's what I thought would happen:

GW - Accepted
BC - Accepted
USC - Accepted
UCLA - Accepted
Duke - Deferred, Rejected
Cornell - Accepted
Michigan - Accepted
Georgetown - Rejected
Northwestern - Waitlist
Chicago - Rejected
Stanford - Rejected
Columbia - Rejected
NYU - Rejected
Penn - Waitlist
Berkeley - Rejected
Virginia - Rejected

Actual results:
GW - Accepted
BC - Accepted
USC - Accepted
UCLA - Accepted
Duke - Deferred, Accepted
Cornell - Deferred (withdrawn)
Michigan - Waitlist
Georgetown - Accepted
Northwestern - Waitlist
Chicago - Rejected
Stanford - Rejected
Columbia - Rejected
NYU - Deferred, Rejected
Penn - Accepted (!!)
Berkeley - Waitlist
Virginia - Deferred (withdrawn)

In the end, I did a lot better than I thought I would do, minus Michigan and Cornell.
