Wait List / Re: William and Mary Waitlist

Same here.

Since I have the same numbers, I thought I would let you know how I did on a few of those... So far, I have been rejected from Virginia and Texas, and I hear they don't take too many from out of state.  I was accepted at George Mason and Baylor.  And I'm still waiting to hear from Washington and Lee, William and Mary (top choice), and Colorado.  I don't have any really great soft factors, so you may have a better chance.  Good luck!

Acceptances / Re: Resident Status and Tuition
« on: February 07, 2009, 06:31:19 PM »
I moved from Illinois to Florida to attend UF for undergrad, and I was able to obtain residency after the first year.  They did deny my first request to become a resident, but after I appealed they granted me residency.  I basically just said that I wanted to continue living in Florida after graduation and find a job here. Hope that helps.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Vandy visit questions

Thanks for the help everyone.  And although I'm not sure what cruise you're all talking about - I hope you all have fun!

I went ahead and scheduled my interview/tour for this Monday. Since I'm visiting a class at 10:45 and then meeting with Sofia Hassander for my tour at noon ...what should I wear?  Should I wear a suit for the entire day, or something slightly more casual? Would anyone who has gone through this tour be so kind as to let me know a little bit of what to expect.   It would be greatly appreciated!

Mine also says the same.

You're probably right about spacing things out, keeping my name in view.  I'll give that a try. Thanks!

So should I mail my continued interest form in before I go visit, and then mail in my LOCI about the business after my visit?  I don't want to wait too long beofre mailing that form back to them.  I'm trying to plan a visit there on the 19th of this month.

Where should I go next fall? / Vandy visit questions

Since I'm not getting much love over in the waitlist section, I will copy my question here: I received my "you are on our waitlist" letter from Vanderbilt a few days ago, and in it they invite me to submit any new or updated information.  Since submitting my application to them, my husband and I have started a home-based business.  It's been pretty successful so far, but I'm having a hard time deciding if I should let them know about this or not.  The business, in short, involves selling some very technical modules that I really don't fully understand, and basically I am solely the shipping/bookkeeping department.  I'm also in charge of doing the taxes for the business, which I must say has been interesting.  I am finding it difficult to twist this to relate to law school, and I'm wondering if I should write them a letter telling them about it since I can't really relate it to going to law school.  I am pretty sure I do not want to go into tax law.  On the other hand, I could just send them my yes I'm still interested letter by itself.  I'm also trying to plan a visit, and from what I've heard so far that is the best way to get an edge in the waitlist game.  Any thoughts?
