Where should I go next fall? / How much can resume boost an application?

Can resume boost an app so much that it will make a discernible difference?

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / What is GW really like?
« on: July 23, 2006, 07:19:37 PM »
What is GW actually like? Anyone have any insight? I want to know what to expect!

Does it hurt your chances if you have already applied to a school and have either turned them down or not been accepted? How about if you say you'll go to a school, put a deposit down on a seat, then withdraw and then reapply in a year or so?

I'd appreciate any advice anyone may have.


General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Defer Question - please help?!?

What is considered a legitimate reason to defer?

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Transferring
« on: April 09, 2006, 03:00:08 PM »
I may do GW's Part-time program in the fall and then transfer to full time. If I had the urge to transfer to another, perhaps better, school, would I be able to since my grades would not be recorded for the 1L curriculum by the time I would need to transfer?

By the same token, if I went to Emory (FT) and did well, would I be able to transfer to a school like Duke/UVa after my first year?

Thanks for your assistance

Do you need to go to a top school? How about GW? Emory?

Where should I go next fall? / GW Questions
« on: April 09, 2006, 12:39:49 PM »
A few questions about GWU?

Is the faculty accessible?
How is the atmosphere? Competitive? More chill?
How are the faculty who teach the part-time students as compared with those who teach the full-time students?
Is there a community feel or does it seem like a factory since there are so many students?
How is their career services office? Do they help considerably with placement during the summers and then with jobs after LS?

Thanks for the help.

What have you heard (beside that one thread on LSD) about the competitiveness among students? What do you perceive the student atmosphere to be like?
