HR,

I appreciate the nice touch about train. Unfortunately, train ride from Richmond to Williamsburg requires the get to and from the train station at both locations, and the train ride takes 1 hour 30 min while the car ride takes 50 min (no traffic;-) usually )...Plus the train ride is 18-26 dollars in one direction...

But that is a good consideration, I was actually offered application fee waiver from Duke University (162/3.94, go figure), and was speculating about renting a place there and taking a train a few times a week.  Application is still pending.

I agree with you both.  For 16*3=48K (MAXIMUM)I would be a lot more comfortable to have W&M on my resume.  Plus, being top 30% of class carries A LOT less lottery chance than being top 10% at UofR...

Waitlist at UVA, bastards. I guess it means here I come, W&M.

Got accepted into University of Richmond and College of William and Mary. UofR is 3 miles from my house, W&M is 60.  Planning to do everyday commute.  UofR is now processing my application for a near full ride scholarship and W&M gave me 6K a year no questions asked.  Without full ride I am certainly enrolling at W&M, but what do people think about if the scholarship for UofR works out?  I know all about the rankings (77 vs 28) and what per cent of the class you would need to be to get a good job (10 vs 30), but am looking for any other considerations/insights.

Law School Admissions / Long pending status in UVA
« on: January 27, 2010, 12:39:03 PM »
I applied to UVA a while ago and had the complete application pending for about five weeks.  Non-URM 162/3.94, CPA, interesting SALT and Big 4 experience. I am a state resident (or it probably would not be pending right now). I heard however that state resident decisions at UVA are made very quickly. 

Does anyone know if that is a good or a bad sign?

Choosing the Right Law School / Big Law Job after T2 Law School

If you go to T2 law school like University of Richmond, and then miraculously manage to get a job at top law firm, like Hunton & Williams(which interviews on campus), would 3-5 years of experience in the law firm help mitigate the ranking of the law school you went to?

Thanks for your reply.  I have been pending for 1.5 months, hopefully UVA will make a decision someday.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Why did Duke send me a waiver? o.O

I am 162/3.94 and also got a waiver from Duke.  $12 is dirt to me so I went ahead and applied.  I guess they are trying to break out of the 10th place tie in the rankings, lol.
