I was accepted and offered a half tuition scholarship, but I decided to against attending. Great school, bad city.

I've been offered a scholarship at a school and I'm considering deferring my matriculation until next year.
Does anyone know if schools who accept deferrals also honor their original scholarship offers?
I checked my status online this morning and learned that my file was in the DECISION status. Earlier today I received a phone call from the admissions office congratulating me on my acceptance.
The person I spoke with said that a formal letter and schlarship information would follow. I'm really excited about this acceptance. OSU is a solid school and I hear Columbus is a nice city.
Does anyone have any specifics on OSU?

It looks like the Wash U waitlist chain has kicked in. I received my waitlist letter, and I must say it was a very flattering way to tell someone their waitlisted, but that's beside the point. Anyway, I read on another post that several other people received waitlist letters today or over the weekend as well.
I received my waitlist letter on Saturday. I'm hoping there's some movement on the waitlist. I'm also wondering about scholarship assistance for people who are selected from the waitlist. Does anyone know how the scholarship game and waitlists work?

Well, Saint Louis Univ. is a strong school if you plan to remain in St. Louis. Most SLU grads receive offers from the major firms in the city and many of the city's government (e.g., city hall, DEA...) entities hire SLU grads. SLU grads who specialize in health law may have greater mobility to cities like Chicago, D.C. and LA.
For the most part though, SLU grads remain in St. Louis at least for the first few years after they graduate.
I wish the SLU Law career services office provided more specific details about employment outside of the region and starting salaries for graduates. I've searched the school's Web site all over and can't seem to find anything on salary benchmarks.

Well, after my visit to Cleveland for Cases' admitted sutdent's day, I decided that Case Rocks!, but Cleveland definitely does not! Since then I've put down on a deposit for an apartment in St. Louis and up until I received my mail today, I was 100% set on SLU. Well, until I got a waitlist letter from Wash U in St. Louis. You might be thinking, it's only a waitlist, but the way I see it, whether I go to SLU or Wash U, my apartment is still in a good location. Also, because it's only two schools, I don't mind putting down a tuition deposit at SLU even with hopes of receving a later summer offer of admission from Wash U.
Either way, both schools have solid reputations in St. Louis. I just drove through SLU's campus today, and it's absolutely beautiful. Although it is located in the city of St. Louis, the school has taken strong measures to create a campus community environment.
I'm just happy to have the option of attending SLU and possibly going to Wash U.
Since I live in this area, if you have any questions about St. Louis, or SLU, feel free to drop me a line.
