Thanks :). Appreciate it. As to Cad. Ab., basically Canadian Aboriginal, which is equivalent to Native American, except Canadian. Some schools do consider it a URM (as they consider all native peoples of North America to be under the same scope), others don't. It's highly dependent on individual school preferences.

I actually think you have a very good shot at getting in off the WL by spring (assuming you don't get in outright) 170 seems to be the magic number, and it's not too late!

  • Saturday, November 24 2007 at 02:34 PM

Permanent, but I kept them the same because I'm still at home. I have only one month left of undergrad, since I am graduating early. So, I didn't want the current address to only be valid for a month. So, I may not be the best to ask!

I hear ya - I'm expecting a lot of waitlistings myself. You should still have your pick of a fine litter, though. Even GULC is quite friendly toward those scoring 170+.

The "H" is in place of the ranking I have given each school. I ranked the law schoolsthat I applied to in my profile and selected the "hide choice" setting to make my rankings invisible. Hope that helps out... Good luck with your application cycle!!!

  • Re: Vanderbilt
  • Saturday, December 01 2007 at 07:06 AM

To be honest, the location in Nashville was the best for me since it was close to family and where I wanted to end up practicing. However, Vanderbilt would have probably ended up top on my list regardless once I visited. The atmosphere, the people, the career services... they're all incredible! I would really encourage you to visit if you're giving it serious consideration. Also, check out the Class of 2011 Facebook page at <a href="http://vanderbilt.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6634896370" title="http://vanderbilt.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6634896370" class="data">http://vanderbilt.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6634896370</a> It's run by the current 1Ls and probably will give you more well-rounded answers than I could alone. But most of all, just note that our class is so proud and enthusiastic about our school--I think that speaks volumes in itself. Good luck!

it went really well and was really casual. i had a young guy who graduated there in '06 and we chatted for an hour about the school, my goals, his experiences with D.C. and the faculty, and just life in various cities in general. i told you they'd like you. :)

  • Re: Traffic Tickets
  • Saturday, December 08 2007 at 06:49 AM

Most certainly did not (I have a couple) and wouldn't unless specifically asked to. However, even if you did, I think the school would just laugh unless you had an absurd number, or something really scary.

the admitted students site didn't become available until like a week ago for everyone, so it's hard to say. I got my letter 3 days after it was dated and I live on the opposite coast.

I went decision at gtown on the 19th i leave on Saturday so i really hope it comes by Friday. The admitted student site says 4 days after decision but i have heard it can take up to a week, so don't panic at 4 days.

Thanks, maddox! I was a bit confused about the permanent address thing too... I wasn't expecting it, esp. because I've been out of undergrad for a couple of years now. I got the xmas card and acceptance letter on the same day. Status checker went to decision on Monday, 12/17. The letters arrived on the following Thursday afternoon. Good luck with the rest of your cycle!

Thanks for the well-wishing, and good luck to you, too! It's good to see another TN TLSer on this site. Out of the schools that have accepted me, I'm starting to prefer Berkeley. I really hope to get into NYU. It would be nice to have UVA as one of my options as well, since I have a cousin who is a 1L there and it's within driving distance of the family home. What are your top choices?

- chammon2
  • thanks
  • Wednesday, January 23 2008 at 06:49 PM

hey thanks for your input. i am really not sure why i even applied to unc because there is no way i'm getting in with their residency at the level it is. congrats on emory by the way. i applied there too, but again, very unlikely. but i was complete in september so i guess it is a good sign they haven't rejected me yet. i also went with BU. my chances there aren't even worth discussing. you have got some nice scholarships; any idea where you're leaning?

  • re: WashU
  • Thursday, March 27 2008 at 12:54 PM

Thank you for the congratulations. I chose WashU over GW after visiting both schools. My visit to WashU went really well. The admissions people were the most genuine and welcoming adcoms at any school I visited. I also took the time to speak with many students (not just the ones they assign you to meet) and every one raved about how much they enjoy school and how good their career opportunities were. On the other hand, my visit to GW was a disaster. The admissions people were short and uninformed and the law school was so crowded and impersonal. The real kicker was the mixed reactions I got from students. While some liked it there, most complained about problems with the school and career services. I had one student flat out tell me her whole study group hoped to transfer to Georgetown. It was easier to eliminate GW than it was to eliminate Georgetown. I really fell in love with Georgetown. At the end of the day, I wouldn't go there PT and pay full price when I had other good options. Sorry for blabbering on...Are you leaning towards any of your schools?

Ya I wouldn't go to Emory either with 90k from WashU- great school! My decision to go to Emory still isnt official, but I really like the school. If you tell them it's your #1 and will absolutely go if they can compete financially you would think they'd help you out (esp w/ a 170). I dunno if I would go to Vandy if I got in...going to visit in June. You?

  • Emory $$
  • Tuesday, April 01 2008 at 09:19 PM

Have you tried using your WUSTL money as leverage? Perhaps inform them that you would really love to attend Emory, but that the significant difference in cost makes it difficult for you to do so. That is, if you would rather go to Emory. Personally, even if they matched the money I would still prefer WUSTL, especially since WUSTL's scholarship doesn't have any GPA or class ranking stipulations for renewal. Where do you want to practice after school?

- nachtbrand
  • Leverage Away!
  • Wednesday, April 02 2008 at 01:20 PM

That's how the game is played, and their adcomms are no strangers to the scholarship-matching game. See if you can get an offer out of them, and don't feel too horrible if you end up going to Vandy anyway. The only thing you might end up regretting is not trying. I mean, if an email that takes 10 minutes to write can get you $60,000. . . that's $360,000 dollars an hour =D

Thanks. I'm hopeful, because I was really impressed with Wake but I may not be able to attend if the FA situation doesn't work out. I was at the ASD as well: awkward person #77 without a collared shirt that was fielding all kinds of questions once people learned I was from the area. I assume you got the same stuff? Lots of good choices for you -- congrats on your excellent cycle!

  • Decisions
  • Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 11:12 AM

I was having a hard time choosing between Texas and Cornell. I'm going into the Peace Corps in May, and I needed a two-year deferral of admission. Texas was cool and gave it to me, no money now, guaranteed admit for the fall of '10. Cornell told me to withdraw from every other school and pay $700 (that I don't have at the moment) up front for a deferral. That, along with the cold weather and the fact that Cornell was looking to be about twice as expensive as UT, led me to choose Texas--go longhorns! What about you, any decisions? I think I would start registering for WUSTL this fall if I was in your shoes--it's a wonderful school. I got the same scholly you did and I came really close to accepting it.

- nachtbrand
  • re: congrats
  • Monday, April 21 2008 at 06:32 AM
