  • Tuesday, October 23 2007 at 11:43 AM

The school I go to gives A+ grades. While they don't count for anything more than 4.0 at the school, LSAC counts an A+ as 4.33. So my 4.0 became a 4.05. It is weird I know.

I hope GW is a safety. Their new medians are pretty intimidating, though (167/3.75). The only good thing about those kinds of medians, however, is that they MUST have given a lot of splitter-love last year. Hopefully they do the same this year. Good luck with your cycle, see ya in class.

  • good luck to you too!
  • Wednesday, November 07 2007 at 01:10 PM

Yeah, we do have a lot in common. Just wish we had the same LSAT score in common too. Ha. Good luck this cycle!

Good luck this cycle! Don't be psyched out by FSU's acceptance if it comes b/c it is in a small white envelope - not your typical acceptance letter! Just wanted to prep you for that one!

- drew82abndiv
  • Wednesday, November 14 2007 at 11:52 AM

Sounds STELLAR - I think you should withdraw all of your other applications and accept the offer now before they drop it!! RRRIIIIIGGGGHHHHHTTTTTT

- drew82abndiv
  • FCSL!
  • Wednesday, November 14 2007 at 04:21 PM

That is hilarious that you received an acceptance without even applying. I did apply there as a safety but quite frankly they didn't offer me enough money for me to take them seriously. I know my numbers aren't astounding but come on! Either way, getting acceptances for schools you haven't even applied for HAS to be a good sign for how this cycle is going to go for you. :-)

  • Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 02:39 PM

I was in DC last spring, working for Sen. Kennedy, and would really like to go back for three years, if anyone in that area is kind enough to accept me! The Office is almost out of episodes, so I'm near tears too. So where's your number 1 right now?

  • fcsl
  • Sunday, December 02 2007 at 12:59 PM

did your email explicitly say that you were admitted with a suitcase of $ or did it only say that you "qualified" for their school. i have never heard of a school letting in anyone without some interest.

  • Splitting
  • Monday, December 10 2007 at 03:28 PM

Yeah, I feel the same way about the scholarship thing. They threw the scholarship info in there to keep us looking for info although it won't come. I'm not too optimistic. I read somewhere that everyone is considered for scholarships any my GPA just doesn't cut it I don't think. I plan on keeping my expectations low so I can be pleasantly surprised.

Congrats on Wash U. It's a great school. All I've heard is how similiar the two are and how they compete for students, so don't put down your chances at Vandy yet. Good luck and maybe I'll see you next year!

  • Tuesday, December 18 2007 at 06:11 PM

Well thank you very much. It does feel good. And it would be an awsome safety school. I am really hoping for a school out west. But any Institute of Technology would be SWEET! I will be keeping my fingas crossed. Good luck to ya.

  • Wednesday, December 19 2007 at 05:41 AM

I would love to be able to stay in Nashville since my fiance works here, but unfortunately money is an issue.....so I'm leaning toward Vandy, but could be swayed when scholarships come in....do you have any preferences?

I mostly agree with you. I have not been impressed with UF. They just haven't tried to sell their school at all. FSU on the other hand has been very cordial and I do like their school. That being said I still have no idea where I am going yet. I am still hoping for Harvard. 8)
