Class of 2001
2001 was a year of few clients; I cut back quite a bit to accommodate the
move to Seattle. Those few did quite well, overall. But I don't
have a picture of a single one of them! I knew my scanner was broken,
so I couldn't share pictures with you, and I knew I was moving, and didn't
need to add to my junk. You'll just have to make do with my notes.
Toby got into Penn, high on his list; from Janice's (or Dean Austin's,
to the more formal) reports, he's making a name for himself with his involvement
Andy wrote me from Harvard, telling me he gave up a spot on Stanford's
wait list and is settled in Boston.
Natalie got into Hastings, where she did quite well. She visited
me in February, while in Seattle for a job interview.
Molly is in at Case and American, and accepted a deferred seat at
Wisconsin. She spent several months in Europe, and is now settling
herself in Madison, preparatory to starting school this fall.
Mike got into Indiana-Bloomington, but he deferred admission to take
an exciting job in Kosovo, with the UN or Red Cross or some such (I should
know, but I can't remember; sorry Mike.) When last we corresponded,
he was debating whether to stay another year before returning to the states
and a less adrenalin-laden existence.
Andrew is in at U.Conn, where he is happy and doing well; he'll be
spending his summer at the Center for Capital Litigation in South Carolina.
Candice was in at American, then was accepted at Tulane with a full
tuition scholarship. She withdrew her name from Northwestern's wait
list and went apartment-hunting. She got the good news while I was
visiting, so I got to share in the excitement.
Brad has Pitt and Stetson;
Carrie's in at Boston College;
Randy has U.W.;
Mario has the other U.W. (Wisconsin). He also got into Illinois,
but stuck to Wisconsin, since he received a full-tuition scholarship there.
and Yohanna has American.
The feedback my clients received from admissions officers was as interesting
as the results. I will always treasure this one:
"Your academic achievements as an undergrad were truly outstanding and
your letters of recommendation were some of the finest that I have received.
Even so, it was your personal, passionate, and introspective essay that moved
me to pen this note."
