Could you tell us a little about your visit and what you liked about it?
The staff there is just phenomenal. I met with Assoc. Dean Wixson for 30 mins, then he took me to meet with the Career Servics Dir Ramona Sein, who was fabulous. She had 5 students who came up to talk to me, specifically students working in DC after graduation or after their first summer like I hope to do. I was with them for over an hour before I met with Dean Shealy again. Overall, the students really sold me. They were excited (even in the middle of exams) and gave me a million good reasons why W&M was the place for me - mostly the strong community.
HTH. Let me know if you have any other questions.
I had (another) fabulous visit yesterday and will be attending next year. If anyone is visiting and happens to be in the bookstore (buying every W&M law apparel item they have, like I did) tell them you've just been accepted - they gave me a 30% discount
I received a phone call as well, just returned Dean Shealy's message and now I anxiously wait. W&M has been my first choice throughout this process and just last week I went down to Emory and really loved it and committed. I honestly don't know what I'm going to say when she calls back - both schools have a ton to offer me but they are incredibly different and I don't know which is best for me. Help!
I went down there dead set on hating it, and low and behold I fell in love with the place (so much so that I'm reconsidering even sending in my W&M WL paperwork - which was my first choice up until last weekend).
The next big challenge: finding a roomate! If anyone is thinking about living in the Post Briarcliff and is looking for a female apartment-mate, PM me!

You put an offer down? Damn.
I couldn't have summarized the weekend better myself. I went in not really wanting to like Emory and being a tad bitter than I was on so many waitlists, and left absolutely in love with Atlanta and Emory! Mailed my deposit yesterday

I hate UNC. I think this goes beyond being bitter that I didn't get in - frankly, they have treated their applicants horribly and when this is all said and done I am going to write them a letter that says just that. Not that they care much about my opinion since apparently they haven't selected me to attend their school, but at least it will make me feel better..

It's so bizarre that there have been like no updates on LSN or on these boards from people that heard - how many phone calls could they possibly have made???

I cannot believe there have been only 2 reported phone calls so far today - this is ridiculous!
