Quote from: vaplaugh on March 09, 2008, 08:12:22 PMMartindale shows 913 GSU grads and 529 Mercer grads registered in Atlanta. Would the age of the schools also affect these numbers? Mercer has been around for over a century, I believe, and GSU recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. Considering that GSU's reputation seems to only be going up (fastest school to break into the top 100, but we'll see where that goes in the rankings this year), the numbers you provided might actually point to a significant current advantage for GSU.

Compared to Mercer, GSU is a relatively new school. As GSU becomes more established, I would expect the disparity to gradually grow.
GSU places SUBSTANTIALLY better than Mercer in Atlanta MIDLAW.
Soooo I still haven't heard from GSU (not surprising since I applied kinda late) but I have to pay my seat deposit at Mercer by April 4th. Looks like that's a 250$ I'm just going to have to swallow! Awesome! Just thought I'd vent to you guys. If I went complete at GSU on March 7th what do you suppose the odds of me hearing from them before the 4th are? I'm so ready to be done with this whole process.
I have no problem with anecdotes so long as they are given proper weight. I think they can be useful, but I distrust sweeping assertions that are made based on one person's experience.
