if you were really 1337 you'd have picked a cooler character the evil monkey in chris's closet.  like, say, ignignokt.  or meatwad.

What???

Did you take a course in onlineish???

Have you ever heard of flame?

Where should I go next fall? / Need help re: GULC vs. GW

Obviously, all else being equal, it'd be GULC over GW. But GW offered me a Presidential Scholarship - 15k a year + a faculty mentorship.

I want to do IP law in DC after I graduate. I am probably going to chose GULC, but wanted to make sure the bump from GULC was worth sacrificing the 45k and personal attention.

Wait List / Re: Georgetown Waitlist is moving
« on: April 26, 2006, 03:05:55 PM »
Got in off PPWL on Monday with email followed by fedex with a nive package of info on tuesday.

I'm going if I can get myself to turn down 60K at GW.

LSAT: 171
GPA: 3.8


I am also likely going to take GULC but I was offered 45k at GW.  I want to do IP was well, for which GW is a plus.

What are you leaning towards?

Accepted off the waitlist at Georgetown today!

Finally my procrastination has reaped some benefits.  Had I already sent in that other deposit, I would be out $200.

Wow, super congratulations.  I'm a fellow PWL person, so I'm a little jealous.  You were PPWL though, right?

Just wondering, did you do anything like write extra letters of interest?

I sent them emails of continuing interest.  Didn't do anything terribly elaborate.  And yeah, I was on the PPWL.

Wait List / Re: Chances of getting off GULC PWL?

I'm in this week's group as well. Best of luck, everyone- I hope we'll all meet at GULC in the fall. ARRRGH, the waiting, the waiting...

What did you think of the email?  I thought it was pretty auspicious considering they instructed us to apply for financial aid and wanted a quick response if GULC was still our first choice.

.001%

I like those odds.

I'm glad to hear that.  I think people's odds of getting off waitlists are too low to be hopeful, but its worth holding on to the chance.

Yeah, I think whoever said 50/50 was overstating things.  You have to imagine that a place like GULC waitlists a large number of people.  But since I am planning on GW, GULC wouldn't be a hard switch midway through the summer.

I received a G'town update saying the same thing.  I think the key part is this sentence:

"The Committee is in the process of looking at our Preferred Waiting List candidates, and they have asked me to let you know that you are in a group that they will be looking at in the next week or so."

This is probably a good sign, and another chance to reiterate interest.  The fact that they are reviewing our apps BEFORE the deposit deadline makes me cautiously optimistic.

I am FT by the way.

Where should I go next fall? / GW vs ND($$)
« on: April 11, 2006, 12:11:54 AM »
GW w/no money vs. ND w/15k/yr

Want to do IP law.

Don't care about Chi vs. DC.  Could see myself in either place.
