HARVARD!!!

DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES? YES!!

Remember how I said I was still waiting to hear back from Harvard and Chicago? Well this morning I woke up to the surprise and shock of a life time: I GOT IN TO HARVARD LAW SCHOOL!!!!!

When I saw the email in my inbox I couldn't believe my eyes. The message was titled, "Congratulations from Harvard Law!"

At first I kept hitting myself on the forehead but I remembered that yesterday, when I asked the admissions committee to send my decision letter to my address here in Utah I got a response back saying:

Daniel,

Thank you for your email. All admissions decisions will be sent via email. Thank you.

Best,
J.D. Admissions
So I realized this was the real thing!
To add to the reality, Toby Stock, Assistant Dean and Dean of Admissions said the following:
Daniel, congratulations on your acceptance to Harvard Law School. Back in September, you wrote me a brief email thanking me for visiting BYU and that really impressed me. I'm confident a gracious and ambitious student like yourself will be a welcomed asset to Harvard Law. I'll see you in the fall.
At this point I about passed out. But I looked back through my emails and found this exchange:

Mr. Stock,

I wanted to thank you for your visit to BYU today but I had to run off to class.

I appreciated your candor, comments, and thoughtful responses; I really enjoyed what you had to say.

Hopefully, I’ll get the chance to know you a little better over the phone some time soon . . .

Thanks again for your time and for coming all the way out here. (Although something tells me that the flight probably wasn’t on your own dime, right?)

Regards.


At the time, I didn't think this little thank you would mean anything as he simply replied:


Thanks & good luck w/ the process

Not 10 seconds before I read this I suggetsted to Julie we fake a Chicago acceptance letter to you, but she said it was too mean.

I suppose I was wrong!

Yes, F-Word, it's a good thing no one cared enough to read the comments on my post or they would have had me pegged from the start!

Muahahahaha!
