Durnit, Lulz, I figured you were skulking around the UO admitted students forum or my facebook page or something and would call me out sooner or later.
Yeeeah, I sent in my deposit to UO this morning & I'm withdrawing from LC and the UW waitlist... Eugene is just going to work SO much better for my little family. My husband has over a year's worth of work in southern Oregon and northern California, and we have connections in Eugene, and I really liked the feel of being adjacent to a BIG university (which is something new for me), so yep, I chose UO.
We should still hang out next year, though, Lulz-- Eugene --> Portland = <2 hrs most days.
I also might do a semester at LC for some enviro classes -- there's opportunities for student exchanges.
Psh, change that "should" to "absolutely will" and you've got yourself a deal! After going through the whole cycle with you I feel like we're old war veterans who get together to swap stories from battle. I know what you mean about wanting to be part of a large university - it definitely has its perks!

"I would like to start by apologizing to my fellow classmates. My comments were uncalled for and I feel nothing but regret for saying them. Simply, I was wrong and take full responsibility for the comments.
I stumbled upon this post months ago, and wrote a few comments which I have deleated. I actually forgot about even posting the comments until a friend outed me as one of the posters (rightfully so). However, much has changed since I wrote those past comments. Until all this got started up, the school had actually began to grow on me and I had just started to actually like being here. One of my friends even stated that she had noticed how "positive" I had been lately. I never had any issues with the student body, and I believe that the students at Mercer are its strongest asset. Most of the students here at Mercer are kind and I have enjoyed getting know them. My comments were not meant to debase any of the students at Mercer. Most of the students at Mercer are highly intelligent and I'll admit that I shouldn't even be sitting the same class with most of them. The comments I made were simply out of frustration. True, it is expensive, but as a friend recently told me, " you knew that when you came". That's a true statement.
I did have intentions of transfering, but recently I decided not to. As I stated earlier, I actually began to feel at home here and began to like it. Now, I simply do not know what I will do considering that I have actually started to like it and the people don't like me. I don't want to be where I am not wanted. So I don't know what I will do.
As for the quality of education, I have never thought that Mercer provided an inferior quality of education. The teacher here are demanding and for the most part all of them are great. My hostility was soley based on price which was my fault.
I admit I made a mistake and acted like a child and bear responsibility of such actions.
Therefore, I hope my apology will be accepted, but I can understand the hurt that it caused.
It's true that I did go to rural junior college in Tifton called ABAC before I went to UGA. I don't regret that decision and am not ashamed of it either. In addition, I do love rural life and love spending every possible spare minute I have on my farm. I have many faults, but my love of rural life is simply not one of them."
Apparently this whole debacle turned into an IRL witch hunt for the guy!

Unless I'm mistaken, siski decided on UO!

Man that kinda just blew up! I feel bad about the guy getting outted, but at least they redacted it. They're following it on autoadmit and jdunderground, too.

siskiyoumtn, I'm calling you out! If what I think is true I want to know how you came to your decision!
Do tell! Do tell!

The Wayne State are isn't so bad. There are lots of housing options available close by too - you have plenty of choices on where to live depending on how much you want to spend. Both schools have new deans coming in, both have nice facilities, and both place well in Michigan. Being affiliated with MSU gives the law school some nice opportunities/ resources plus name recognition, and it seems like it's on the rise. Like Ender said they're really very close, so you'll need to visit both and get a feel for which one you like better. I'm a soon-to-be Spartan alumni, so if you want more info on the area feel free to ask. Go Green!

I'm also interested in the other schools you mentioned. When did you apply to your schools? Most of the scholarship money is given pretty early in the cycle, so if you didn't apply until later you might not have gotten the offers you think you deserve with your numbers (whatever they may be). I would agree that you should contact them and see what they say. Since many of the 4.0/180 applicants with full ride offers won't be matriculating at L&C, some money might be freed up. It wouldn't hurt to try! I also got into some higher ranked schools with money, etc. but I'm choosing L&C because of the quality of life, atmosphere, and unique opportunities offered there - don't give up on them yet!

I just heard from L&C...
Apparently the class is full and I'm on the waitlist for Fall 08, but I'm accepted for Fall 09, if I'd like to wait.
Is this a common?
I wouldn't get too down yet. As seat deposit deadlines are upon us, many people will be withdrawing in the next week or so from schools that they won't be attending, opening up seats for those on the waitlist. Depending on your place on the list and how many people withdraw from L&C, you'll could be in for Fall 2008 soon!

It's official for me as well! Sending my seat deposit in the mail today, L&C Class of '11 for me!
Good for you...I am certain you'll love both Portland and the School. If you have any Portland questions, let me know.
Thanks! I have a ton of questions, so I'll prepare a big pm for you Hope you don't mind!
Congratulations! What was it that set you over the top? You should totally CC: me on the pm and answers too, cause I'm sure I'm wondering a ton of the same things!
