I got an email from Vermont about a week after I applied saying that I was complete and the review process begins Dec1. I think you will definitely hear back before Christmas. Best of luck to you! My top choices are Northeastern and then Seattle, so far it's a toss-up after that. ps yay for AmeriCorps!
yup.. I am in my second year :)
I just got my VLS acceptance also! Not sure will end up though!
CONGRATULATIONS! I just got in too. TOTALLY stoked!!!!
I think you will really like the area up there, it is beautiful. :)
On VLS! You'll love Vermont, especially their four seasons - winter, winter, mud, and road construction! :)
Thanks for the comment. This is such a stressful process...I really appreciate the support. After getting that waitlist answer I am definitely disappointed and kind of dreading the next few decisions I will get...
Great job getting into VLS - I want to work for the EPA too! What sold you on Vermont? I'm looking at Lewis & Clark and Oregon for enviro law as well.
They sent a really nice package with a brochure on the school, a map of the area, a magazine on Vermont, and a couple of other things. They gave 20k/ year if I maintain a 2.5 GPA. I'm not really sold though because of the high cost (40k/ year) and the isolation, which will make networking and job-hunting hard. The school seems awesome, though, so I'm definitely going for a visit!
Thanks for the note! I am finishing up a 10 page final and I appreciate the distraction! My dream school..or the one I would love to get into would either be Suffolk or New England. I live in Central Mass and I have gone to a school out in Western Mass and now I think it is time to experience the city. Thanks for the encouragement...and I agree, you should probably get a snowmobile or a four wheel drive vehicle if you are going to move to Vermont! The snow/ice storm we just had was awful...
Happy New Year! I am thinking about doing criminal, particularly juvenile law. I worked at a prison for bad girls this summer. It was a great experience. I miss them so much! How is Korea? We keep getting hammered with snowstorm after snowstorm here....
Don't worry about the cold- just buy a ski jacket, a hat, and some boots! Then you will be all set. Weather here is weird- right now it is 50 degrees (it should be 30 or below!) And I still haven't heard anything from anyone. This whole waiting game is depressing.
Hello. Congrats on Vermont! I see you were wondering about scholarships. I called the Financial Aid office today and asked about scholarships and she said awards don't go out until the beginning of March. Maybe they give them to the superstars right away and then the rest of us a little later! I'm not sure, but she said that's when I would find out about a scholarship.
Hello again. Vermont is in my top 4. I am waiting to hear from 10 more... haha, so nothing is really decided yet. I would like to go to Vermont, but my deicision will probably have to come down to money within my top 4. We will see! I believe I would really enjoy the NE and it has such a strong reputation for environmental law!
Hey there as a native vermonter i want to say welcome to the great state. I think i will be at the accepted candidates day hope to see you there. Im not 100% im going to VLS but its looking good congrats
Hey! Congrats on Vermont! I\'m sure you are about start school if not already...so good luck! I\'m really interested in environmental so it\'s at the top of my list.
I recommend taking testmasters. I have heard from Kaplan instructors not to take Kaplan, however, I'm not sure if they have changed their teaching over the last two years. If you do take testmasters, make sure you get the right one. <a href="http://www.testmasters180.com" title="www.testmasters180.com" class="data">www.testmasters180.com</a> is their website. The other one, based out of Houston, you DEFINITELY do not want. Also, have you considered Florida State University? They have one of the top environmental law programs.
