hey there, we've got very (almost identical) similar #s. Congrats on a great cycle. What's your first choice?

I visited Case Western last week and I really liked it. Tuition Deposits are Due April 1, so it's looking more and more like Case.

Rutgers- N would be a great choice. They have good coursework and a clinic for environmental law. NJ is an extremely active state for enviro law, and NYC and vicinity is great if you do land-use law. Don't forget that Rutgers-N (don't know about Cam) gives instate tuition to all students once they have a 12mo lease in NJ. They also have dorms 2 blocks from the school that offer 12mo leases. I was impressed during my visit.

  • MD vs. Mason

I'm waitlisted at Mason but in at Maryland (go figure) and have visited both schools. I preferred Maryland; the school was prettier and seemed more socially cohesive than Mason. Employment prospects and education quality are probably about equal. At Maryland, you're the top law school in the state. Not so at Mason. If you want more specific opinions, I'd be happy to share!

  • Why GMU over MD
  • Tuesday, April 01 2008 at 01:45 PM

Hi! Congrats on having some great options! I'm leaning to GMU for a couple reasons. Personally it's more convenient b/c my fiance is attending grad school in DC (and North Arlington is closer to DC than Baltimore in case you're not familiar with the area..). However, more generally I really like Mason's law and economics focus (econ major hoping to do something with it as a lawyer), I think it will be cheaper than MD b/c you can apply for in state in VA after a yr and the instate tuition is MUCH cheaper.. I'm going to the accepted students things this wkd, so I can give you more details after. Good luck with your decision, and maybe I'll see you next year.

i'm leaning more towards mason mostly because of location, but it'll be a difficult decision for me if MD actually accepts me off their waitlist. good luck with your waitlists!

Hi! It looks like we're both on this "Special" WL at Maryland - the letter I received was pretty straightforward about the list ("in the past everyone has been offered an invitation"). Have you heard anything more? Are you pretty confident?

Hey!!! Noticed that you are on the waitlist for UMB. I am as well, although I'm on the regular waitlist, not the priority. I went to visit this past Friday and hand delivered an LOCI. I took a tour, and just LOVED the school. The students were so friendly and the admissions staff seemed equally nice. Have you heard anything in regards to actions that help a candidate get off the waitlist? What are your plans? Feel free to email if you want to shoot some ideas back and forth, I'd love to talk with someone in the same boat.
