Additional info & updates

Update 5-4:
Received an email from George Washington - I've been accepted off the FT WL!!!! Hooray!!! It looks like my plans will change!

Update 4-20:
Rejected from Duke - Took them long enough!!!

Update 4-17:
Withdrew from Brooklyn and my deposit to Emory is sent! I'm going to Atlanta! Unless one of my many WLs comes through, I'll look for apartments there this summer.

Update 4-13:
Withdrew from several waitlists, and several schools that accepted me. I'm going to narrow down my list to Emory and waitlists where I want to attend

UPDATE 4-4:
Another WL from WUSTL! This makes 10 now. Damn. I will probably withdraw from WUSTL though.

UPDATE 4-2:
Brooklyn offered me a Centennial grant, in addition to my original scholarship. It's now up to 21k. I don't know if this is renewable.

Got more waitlists and deferrals. Now I'm up to 8 WLs and deferrals. What a cycle! I plan to withdraw from a few though.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Older, non-traditional applicant here. 6 years WE in the software and consulting fields. Interested in doing IP law. Currently, it looks like I'm heading to Emory. I'm interested in possibly returning to the NYC area, and Emory gives me a decent shot at it, while still providing me a decent shot in being employed!

I have 5 waitlists so far...if one of them comes through my plans will change.

GULC - I'm preferred WLed in their FT and PT programs since I applied to both.

Not sure why Fordham rejected me - better or comparable schools have at least WLed me. I'm a little bitter about that.

thanks for the encouragement regarding the waitlists. Maybe something will come through. I'm not that excited about AU, and I know that Emory has a stronger reputation overall. I'm not totally opposed to Atlanta, btw

I've heard it both ways regarding Emory and NY. Overall though, it seems like Emory has a strong reputation, places well in NY, and places well in Atlanta. NYC placement alone isn't dictating which school I will choose.

I saw your profile - nice job with the BC admit. I'd love to be admitted there, but alas, I'm WLed as you can see. If you turn them down, perhaps I'll get in, yeah? I considered Brooklyn for a while, but I think Emory may be a better for me. This is a tough call.

If you're interested in IP law and returning to NYC, why would you pick Emory over Cardozo? Throw out your US News already. Cardozo will place better in NY and has one of the best IP programs in the country. AND they gave you $16k! Sorry just my 2 cents.

Because, from what I can tell, Cardozo doens't place as well as Emory in NY. Yes, that's what I've seen so far, since Emory's ties to NYC are strong. Plus, I am interested in possibly working in DC as well. Atlanta won't be the end of the world either, in a worst case scenario. I know that in a worst case scenario with Cardozo, I will simply be unemployed. Maybe I'm missing something here. Cardozo's a good school though, and it's given me pause several times. But in the end, Emory's degree is the most flexible.

Hey anonlaw, you've pretty much summed up why I'm choosing Emory over Cardozo and Brooklyn. The TIGER program sounds great, and it's something I will definitely look into. In the long term, the Emory name carries farther, and while I would like to work in NYC, I think the flexibility that Emory offers is worth it. I could probably work in NYC, DC (if I do well enough) and definitely Altanta. NYC is my preference, and DC close behind. Atlanta is probably my last choice preference, but I wouldn't mind working there. If I end up there, it wouldn't be the end of the world. I just think that Cardozo\Brooklyn are way too limiting.

Woah, you've been WLed at a variety of schools...what's up with your application? WLed at Cardozo and Northwestern?

congrats on GWU think you will go? these waitlists suck this year, but atleast they are moving through them... Oh, and fordham makes no sense. i got rejected too... how can you get in to number 19 and get rejected at 32? im bitter, not that i woulda gone.

Yeah, I don't understand Fordham. Maybe they're trying to climb the rankings and since they're in NYC, they think they can be choosy and rise in US News. However, they don't really have a great reputation outside the five boroughs, so I don't think it's going to work. Yeah, I was bitter, but getting in to GWU definitely helps the ego. Unless I get into Cornell or GULC, I think I will attend GW.

hey :)

yea, shitty things happen sometimes I guess. What is worse is that I tested at w&m and it was their fault, but i was waitlisted none the less. I am almost positive I will go to GWU. I walked by it once and it wasnt bad. Its like 15 minutes from georgetown which is ten times better then the village for shopping, eating, and all that. Good luck with Gtown and cornell. I feel like a lot of people withdraw cause of the location, so i think you have a good shot :) anyway, keep in touch as things get closer.. im interested in getting some feedback from people about where they are staying and all.

Thanks for your input. As it is though, I think GW is a better fit for me than Emory. Its IP program is ranked very highly, and they have excellent placement along in DC and NYC. I'm also quite familiar with DC - much moreso than Atlanta.
