Choosing the Right Law School / Fordham
« on: February 26, 2005, 12:02:08 PM »
My parents called me this am and said that a letter from Fordham had just come, saying essentially what the status check on the website did. My app was "pended" and reviewed but no decision had yet been reached. It stressed this was not a waitlist. I've been complete there since early Nov. So essentially Fordham wrote to tell me that nothing was new? And they sent it to my permanent address? Anyone else think they are a bit odd?

To answer the residency question:
From what I understand it will, or I should say, it might. You have to apply for instate residency consideration for VA schools. I have lived in VA all my life, but attend school in a different state. I had to fill out an app to "apply" for instate, and explain my situation, and remind them that I pay taxes, have a license, and a car registered in VA. There is a Q and A for that on the UVA and on the W and M website (obviously this doesnt apply for W and L). You should check to be sure, but from what I remember reading, they dont consider you in-state if you just go to school there, you have to prove somehow that you are planning on staying, or prove that you didn't just move to the state temporarily to attend school. Check with the school though, they should be able to answer more fully...while you have them on the phone, ask them when the F#%& they are going to mail some more decisions.

I was just down at Emory about two weeks ago (2nd week of Feb). I had already recieved my decision, but the girl i toured with was still pending, and the asst dean said they were swamped with apps but getting through them asap. Good Luck!

Submitted both W and L and W and M way back in mid September, complete just weeks after that. No response from either. Im VA in state too (only helps for W and M, but still).

Student lounge had some flat screen plasmas i remember, which seemed nice. Just to clarify, I would call the architecture uninspiring, bland, utilitarian, but it was not so bad as to make me not want to go there...it was ok, just not "great". On the other hand, I was pretty excited about W and L until i saw their facilities, and that is almost enough to  dissuade me from going to Lexington. Emory isn't that bad. Plus the surrounding area and campus generally are very nice.

 If that clarify's anything at all

I visited Emory last week, and that very long post was essentially dead on in my impression.

The only thingsi would add:

my tour guide (an asst dean for admissions) said that wireless would be installed by next fall, and that the $$$ had already been set aside to setup a network.

Architecture/ambiance (sp?) of the interior/exterior leaves something (alot) to be desired. (Although not as bad as W and L)

Overall, my impression was favorable.

I'll be at the Emory accepted student'c day April 9. I visited two weeks ago and liked the school. Check out the other emory thread for my comments

A few students I have spoken with  said accepted students day is "fun" and definitely worth going to if you are considering attending.

Hope that helps!

Recently visited emory as well. Overall, i had a favorable impression. Atlanta is nice, the Druid hills area seems fine as well. The law school is kindof ugly from the outside, but the inside isn't bad. Problem: the classrooms have no windows. No wireless internet as well, but according to the asst dean for admissions the money has been set aside to have the place wireless by the fall. Could be a load of bs, but she seemed to think it would happen. Overall, the building was slightly dated, but fine. The library, however, was new, open, bright, and very nice etc.

Sat in on a Con Law class, and thought it was interesting. The prof seemed like a decent teacher, and the students I talked to in that class seemed to like it. Talked with a few other students, who said it was definitely competitive and had a tough workload, but overall quality of life was not terrible for being a 1l.

Overall impression after visiting: I feel I could go to Emory, and have a good experience. Its not my first choice, but if I end up there, I feel I would be fine. I would def. recommend visiting though, everyone forms his/her own opinions.

Hope this helps!

Choosing the Right Law School / GW waitlist update?
« on: February 23, 2005, 05:10:24 PM »
I've been waitlisted at GW since late December. I recently graduated a semester early and took a job as a runner at a local firm to make some cash and kill time till the summer. I'm thinking of writing GW to tell them about it and play up my duties, etc, and to express my continued interest. Will they care that I am a runner? Should I even bother? Advice?
