Financial Aid / William & Mary Loans
« on: July 30, 2005, 09:33:23 PM »
Does anyone know the maximum loan amount authorized by WM?

I could really use some advice. I took the LSAT in February and scored 170. I ended up applying late to a few schools in March. I got in at William & Mary, Emory and Vandy. I am really only considering W&M and Emory, because I didn't like Vandy when I went. I am still not sure whether I want to go next year. I have a high enough GPA that I believe I could get into a T14 if I wait a year. I am wondering whether I should go to a school I am not psyched about and try to transfer, or if I should wait. Thanks.

I received a call today from Emory. As expected, I am in off the waitlist. The woman who called me told me that I need to send $750 by next Tuesday. I asked if I could expect to receive a letter first. She told me that they would not send anything until they received the deposit. She was actually kind of rude and demanding, rather than congratulatory and helpful, which has kind of turned me off.

I now have it down to two schools - William and Mary and Emory. I am curious. What are these schools like. Despite this year's fluke rankings, Emory has a better rep. Plus Emory has a better B school if I go for the JD/MBA. William & Mary is way more affordable though. I am curious as to what people think about the cost discrepancy...Any thoughts?

Did anyone else face this dillema and what pushed you over the edge?

Where should I go next fall? / Emory Waitlist Movement

Has anyone heard anything re Emory's waitlist?

Being ranked in the top 5 on Emory's waitlist, I am hoping and kind of assuming that I get in. That said, I am interested in hearing from people on where I should go and why. I prefer Atlanta over Nashville. D.C. and Atlanta are pretty even.

Wait List / Emory Chances
« on: May 17, 2005, 10:35:03 PM »
Note: I posted this same topic on the parent post, but didn't receive much of a response, so I am reposting here.

I was placed on the waitlist at Emory. I called today for my ranking. I was told that I am ranked in the top five. This presents a conundrum for me as I was pretty set on going to a school that is ranked much higher than emory. However, there are many things about Emory that I find attractive and I would seriously consider going...Actually, if admitted, I would probably go to Emory. What are the odds that Emory will use their waitlist? Is there any historical waitlist data? The admissions person said I can expect to hear around mid-June. Is that accurate, or was she just being safe? Should I make a bet on Emory?
Thanks
