My lowly 166 and I would be happy with any money from GWU, but the Presidential Merit Scholarship does seem small considering how much they gave last year to people with similar numbers. Any theories?

Nope. I like to separate business from pleasure.  :P

Good luck to all of you!

Anyone else hear anything?

What about in terms of recreation, accessibility to necessities ( stores) without a car, rent costs, etc. Things other than nightlife

Obviously, where you live really determines this, but my roommate doesn't have a car and she has never had a problem. If you were to move out into parts of VA or MD, it could become an issue, but generally, grocery stores and things like that cluster around metro stops, so even in VA or MD, if you live near one, you should be ok.

As far as rent, it is definitely expensive. Foggy Bottom near GW will cost you at least $2,500 for a two bedroom and not much less for a one bedroom. If you are thinking GW, places in Arlington (near Clarendon, Rossyln, Ballston) are definitely cheaper. You can also live in other areas of DC, like Columbia Heights, Adams Morgan, or parts of Capitol Hill for less, but you will probably have to sacrifice proximity to the Metro for cost.

Hope that helps.

If you are applying for next cycle, you have a lot of time! Retake in June and see how you do! Did you take a LSAT class or anything?

I am curious about this too. Definitely watched for the mail man this morning. Nothing yet, though I doubt I'd be in the first batch, if I get anything.

I am also on the preferred waitlist. What are your first choices in the meantime?
