Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Anyone going to GW admit days?
« on: March 03, 2005, 03:29:43 PM »
I just got a little brouchure in the mail yesterday.  Not sure if I want to pony up for the flight though - in general, is it a good idea to go to a lot of these?  Or would it be better to wait til later and visit individually once I hear from  more schools?

Maybe they're email department is completely out  of whack with their snail mail department?
Honestly, though, if it was Oregon that made the mistake, I can't see them holding that against you - they should at least make a note of it in your file that THEY were the ones who lost your materials!

Sorry to hear it - but glad you're so happy about Tulane!  It's gonna be so warm there!

Gosh - this is so entirely depressing.  And here I was thinking that I was better off because the schools were at least holding on to my application a little longer :(

Wow - good advice - and glad to know it wasn't just one crazy cook thinking it's true!

it makes law school seem a lot more like a crapshoot though :(

I'm sure it couldn't hurt - unless you get really ridiculous and start emailing them obsessively.  But I doubt how much a letter of intent can help someone who isn't on the waitlist already or an auto-admit they would have considered rejecting for yield protection.  But, again, I'm sure it couldn't hurt.  Depending on the size of the school/efficiency of the administration, the email might get added to your file - but   I doubt most schools would take the time/effort to print that out.
If you want an addendum added for real, send them a letter asking them to add the addendum (on another sheet of paper) to your file - I figure being direct as opposed to just hoping they'll do it by themselves is your best bet.  Best of luck.

Definitely!  Can't wait for the sun - and 10 whole days of not being able to obsessively check email/mail box!  Hopefully I'll come home to a nice big stack of acceptances, right?!?!?! :) :) :)

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Fodham Scholarships?

Has anyone heard anything from Fordham in terms of merit-based scholarships.  I'm being horrible about filling out my FAFSA, (tonight, I swear) but I just want to see if maybe people are hearing anything from them - they've been pretty mum since I got accepted back in January.

Truth - if anything,  a lot of posts on LSD have made me feel more comfortable choosing GW if none of my reaches end up working out - there seems to be a lot of positive energy about the school here.
