Neerav Shah

From left to right: Terri, Panda, Neerav

The first time I met Neerav, we went to the Washington Zoo.  He was at a total loss -- what does seeing a panda have to do with getting into law school?  

I don't know if he ever did figure it out, but over the course of the next three days he learned that I'm unorthodox, but not insane.   (Seeing the cordial reception I received at the DC Law Forum helped convince  him of my sanity.)   

Neerav was admitted to SMU and Houston in short order; then he anxiously awaited news from U of Texas.  The other schools on his list all fall into one category:  non-Texas.  About the time we had given up hope, Neerav got the phone call:  YES!  

He called me from the side of the road, where he had wisely stopped the car. I think he said, "Oh my God!  I can't believe this!" about five times in the first minute.

A few days later he wrote, "Thank you sooooooooooo much, Loretta!!! Congratulations to you too!!! We did it!"
