1/26 Northwestern alumni interview this morning. And got an email that I'm in the review process at Tulane, and snail mail rejection letter arrived from Illinois

3/11 Northwestern - rejection via status checker
3/26 Received letters in mail from W&M & BC
3/27 Leaving tomorrow to visit some schools. At this point I am really leaning toward Georgia. So far, it's the best school I've gotten in and the cost is a major factor. And Athens is a great town. My wife is moving with me and she is happiest with Athens because there are so many school options for her as well. I am hesitant to move us to DC for me to go to George Mason, but I'm still waiting on the GW waitlist until our house in Memphis sells.
4/6 Returned yesterday from visiting schools. Lexington, VA (W&L) is beautiful, but too rural. Loved W&M and GW. George Mason and American did not seem like the right fit, so I will be withdrawing from those schools. Georgia is the likely choice now. My wife and I are both excited about Athens.
4/8 Received letter today from UGA that my scholarship has been increased to another $3000 per year!
4/14 Email arrived from Chicago-Kent that I was awarded the Labor Law Scholarship award for 2009-2010 for $3,000.
5/12 Surprise snail mail rejection from GW

GMU
Tuesday, October 21 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thank you! I got a phone call, so maybe you will get one today too! Your numbers are stronger than mine so maybe you'll get into the Full-Time..awesome to see a fellow History/Philosophy person on here and a Phi Alpha Theta Member to boot!

ED
Tuesday, October 21 2008 at 08:00 PM

I applied ED to both American and GMU, I haven't heard anything from American and although they are close in rankings I think GMU is better, even part time, because I like the law and economics bent of the school. So I'll be withdrawing shortly once I get my acceptance packet in the mail.

Saturday, December 06 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on GMU to you too!!

question
Saturday, December 06 2008 at 07:00 PM

Emory
Saturday, January 24 2009 at 07:00 PM

Why didn't you see yourself at Emory? I haven't visited yet, but I'm really interested. I haven't heard back form them yet though...

Saturday, January 24 2009 at 07:00 PM

Thank you so much for a thorough answer!

Thank you
Thursday, October 16 2008 at 08:00 PM

I applied Regular decision to GW. I noted your GM and Maryland acceptances - great job.

Congrats
Friday, October 24 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats to you on all of your acceptances as well, and thank you for the nice comments! I really know nothing about UT except everyone I have talked to says that Austin is amazing. However, I think I will probably end up at UCLA. I have lived on the campus and fell in love with it, and also have family out there. What about you? Any idea?
