W&L

Hey, I was just wondering if your "complete" and "decision" dates from W&L are accurate. That's a pretty quick turn-around! Congrats.

thanks
Saturday, September 10 2005 at 08:00 PM

thanks for the info about W&L. i looked at your profile again and we have pretty similar stats - i'm a graduate student from ny too. good luck to you as well.

Congratulations
Monday, June 27 2005 at 08:00 PM

I'm applying to W&L and Arizona too. Those are definitely some quick turnarounds on the complete/decision dates. Is that Minnesota ED binding?

ED
Sunday, January 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

You know both Cornell and Minnesota do not have ED programs, right? Congrats on your acceptances!

George Mason
Saturday, November 26 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats to you as well! Nice acceptances thus far - I know there will be a few more in store for you. GOOD LUCK...

Congrats!
Wednesday, November 30 2005 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on all of your success thus far! We're looking at a lot of the same schools, do you have any top choices thus far? If you ahve any questions about W&M, let me know, I'd be happy to give you some insider info.!

Numbers Twin
Monday, January 02 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey, looks like we have practically identical numbers, and similar acceptances. What do you think about Minnesota?

Hey there!
Wednesday, November 30 2005 at 07:00 PM

I'm on my way to class, but I'll send you an email on W&M when I get home (just wanted you to expect a foreign email address in your inbox ;)). Congrats again! I'm big on IP too, so hopefully we'll be able to exchange some good info!

PhD student?
Sunday, February 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hi, Are you a PhD student or do you already have a PhD? If so, have you found this something that is desirable to law schools?

Withdrawals and a PhD
Friday, October 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

dritsic, I am currently in a PhD program and will be finishing before I start law school in the fall. I'm not sure how much having a PhD affected my acceptances, rather I believe it played a part in getting better scholarship offers. I'm hoping that in 3 years having a PhD will help me find a better job in the field of intellectual property. jennifer, I am currently withdrawing from the majority of my accepted schools, as you can see above. I hope people who need spots in those schools will get them. And curious person, I think that my first choices are in no particular order: - Franklin Pierce Law Center - Syracuse University - University of Washington - Chicago-Kent IIT - William and Mary (As you can see, these are the 5 places I will not yet be withdrawing from - I'm waiting for financial aid info from these places before I make any decisions).

Thanks
Sunday, February 12 2006 at 07:00 PM

elijah5 for the info. Where are you getting your PhD from? Do you plan to get into IP law?

Withdrawals
Monday, June 27 2005 at 08:00 PM

You've withdrawn from some amazing schools. Is your final decision based on money/financial aid? Do you have other reasons? I'm just curious as to why you'd turn down $ from some very good schools like Notre Dame and Minnesota. Good luck with your decision!

attogcinc
Friday, October 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

I've always had a list of my favorite schools and I just recently narrowed my choices down based on that list as well as financial aid and scholarships. I wish I could afford to go to any school I wanted, but that's not the case. Good luck to you in your decision!

W&M
Wednesday, March 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey there It looks like W&M is one of my top choices right now too...any reason why you withdrew from wash&lee and wake?

Syracuse
Thursday, February 23 2006 at 07:00 PM

Is there anything in particular that caused you to choose Syracuse over some of the higher or equally ranked school besides the money? I'm also considering Syracuse with a scholarship, but it's lower ranking and limited placement outside of the NY/NE area somewhat concerns me. Thanks.
