July 31st.  I'll need a few weeks of rest, I'm sure.  Can't freakin' wait!

I was elementary ed undergrad, and we taught kids to learn the spelling and the shape of the words...especially children with difficulties in the language arts area.  Sometimes we'd give them an "outline" (of where letters go above the middle line, and dip below the bottom line) and give them a few letters, and they would have to fill in the was cool.

sent my withdrawl (along with my refusal of $16K renewable) about a month ago.  Good luck cascagrossa!

I'm looking for a roomie (male or female...I've lived with both) too!  I have a room in my house in Carnegie.  If I don't sell it, I'm staying here (so will need a roomie for my house), and if I do sell it, I'll need a roomie for a house/apt in Shadyside/Squirrel Hill/Bloomfield/Lawerenceville..

Will all of you be at the open house?

No Bush for me either!

(see my posts under the school-specific boards for Pitt & Duquesne for a detailed description of my house)

You and me both!  I went complete around 1/10, and the decision was made 3/2.  I'm still waiting on Mason, but I'm 80% sure I'll be headed to Pitt.

Hi EraPitt...I'm in Carnegie now.  Are you in Pittsburgh?

Everything I've heard about Pitt is positive, and I'm now negotiating my scholarship.  So, hopefully I'll be able to go there for a lot less $$.

Wow, I didn't realize that this thread would begin a debate on the merits of GW.

I am very disappointed that I wasn't admitted to GWU.  It is a great school in a great part of the country.  But, I'll hopefully graduate with a higher rank from Pitt, and have the same/better prospects after graduation.

As I said before, everything happens for a reason!

Now, kids...stop fighting!

Yeah, I'm jealous of others who got in.  Thought I had a fairly good least to be waitlisted, but no go.

I think I'm going to go to Pitt now, and come out with about 1/2 of the debt I would have if GW was in my future. 

Things have a way of working themselves out.

I called the admissions office today around 3:30, and they said a decision was made on 3/2, and it has been mailed.  Being that GW emails acceptances, it seems as if my fate is sealed...I consider waitlist a ding.  :(

Was just notified that I'll be getting $4500/year in state.  Part of the Law Faculty Scholarship.

Me too...congrats!


I trust Pitt is still in the lead at this point however?

Ummm, yeah.  Still waiting on GW and GMU.  And waiting to sell my house.  Lots of "up in the airs".
