The Top 21 Law Schools For 2015 Ranked By U.S. News - With My Acceptance Results From Said Schools In 1986

Yale - rejected.  My application seemed to have been lost in a giant pile of "other" for about 2 months.  I finally called Admissions on a Thursday, resulting in a rejection letter being sent and received by me on a Monday.  Ouch.

Harvard - sent the application and fee on a Friday, was rejected by the next Thursday.  This meant they, at best, received my packet on a Monday and sent a rejection by Wednesday.  It is possible they got it Tuesday and replied Tuesday.  This led my mother to state, "You will never get into any top school anywhere, you better start applying to some second and third-tier schools."  Thanks, Mom.  I feel a lot better now after talking to you.

Stanford - did not apply.

Columbia - accepted.  Was in my final 2 with Duke. 

Chicago - did not apply.  Knew the K lived there, but then he tricked me by going to Duke!

NYU - accepted, law school at NYU cost around $17,000 per year back then; they offered me like $791.....for the three years.....

Penn - did not apply

Virginia -- wait listed.  Was told "you are around 44 on the wait list; I would look elsewhere."

Berkeley - did not apply

Duke - admitted, got $20K scholarship.

Michigan - really wanted to attend, was close to home, got into the Public Policy school, but was rejected for the 4-year law/public policy program. PP guy said that I really should have visited campus to help my chances.  Yeah, fuck you buddy, how about you go to bat for me with the Law School?

NW, Cornell, GTown - did not apply

Texas - accepted.

Did not apply to any others except....

Vandy - accepted, offered $15,000 scholarship, which I thought was odd since Duke gave me $20K and Duke was a higher ranked school.

Minnesota - accepted
