GMU just offered me 12K so now I am back in the ditch where I was a week ago. This whole process is stressful when you're mulling around bottom tier 1/top tier 2. But it is a good stressful :) My results were better than I had hoped! I can't believe I have scholarships when in october I just wanted to get in ANYWHERE that would take me.

What if a professor calls on you and you didn't brief? How do you deal with that?

I don't think she wants to pick up girls in bars :)

I had a very brief visit and was not impressed at all but I feel like my visit might have been unusual for George Mason. Can you tell me how yours went?

Congrats, kristay!!!

Definitely Fordham. The alumni base, greater recognition in NYC and the small difference in cost in the long run (along with being GUARANTEED) makes this a no brainer to me. Only reason I would choose Cardozo is if you plan to do public interest or want to get your degree a little faster and are highly confident and will work hard to maintain that 3.3+ GPA.

katinaishot - how much effort did you have to put in to get off the waitlists? Thanks!

I agree with michaelduke, it is really new and with a shallow network. However, I wouldn't say that it isn't diverse, but then I only had a two-day visit there so maybe their presentation was skewed.

michaelduke, that was you?! AWESOME! Anyway, GMU was underwhelming. It was like an office building in suburbia. I loved Virginia and D.C., beautiful architecture, great location if you want to go the political route, but it did not convince me enough to go to George Mason. It was way too cold feeling for me. The professor of the class I sat in on was great, but the students were part timers I think so they didn't give me the real LAW SCHOOL feel. Also, the office wasn't very helpful in giving me information about the school (lightyears behind of Cardozo's openness). I have pretty much decided that GMU is not for me. And then there were three . . .

Oh and as a sidenote, that walking tour was EXHAUSTING, haha!
