Extra Curricular Information

Good but not great softs.

Scholarship amount posted is yearly.

Number for each school is USNWR ranking.

As of 4/2/2018 I have made my seat deposit at Washington and Lee! I will remain on the waitlist at Emory and George Washington, but I am incredibly doubtful either school (if they admit me off the waitlist) will be able to offer me anything in the way of a scholarship as generous as what I have received from W&L.

Given the salience of cost, and the comparative unlikeliness of a waitlist admission meeting my qualifications in that direction, it looks like my cycle is pretty much over.

Thanks for watching guys! Best of luck to everyone in Fall 2018 and beyond.

Additional info & updates

I'll try to be as thorough as possible as I go through this process. There isn't a whole lot of available data on splitters like me, so I'd like to provide as much as I can.

Hey- congrats on the acceptances! I have very similar stats to you and was put on hold at w&l yesterday-- did you do anything in particular with them that you felt like helped moved you to an admit?

Sunday, January 07 2018 at 12:44 AM

@Zb90 Write them a letter of continuing interest as soon as you can. I was on hold as well, and they admitted me shortly after I sent it in. Best of luck!

Awesome!

Congrats on Rutgers and Drexel! I'm on the East Coast and looking there as well. Was your GPA a 2.36 and if so, did you mention it in your essay? I have a 2.67 with about 8 years in the legal field and want to know how to approach my GPA.
