In at Washington University, St. Louis
« on: December 16, 2004, 01:41:30 PM »
For those keeping track at home, WUStL just sent me the acceptance email.

For those keeping track overall, my count so far is:

Accepted: George Washington, Washington and Lee, Washington University, and U Minnesota (one of these schools is not like the other, one of these schools just isn't the same).

Dings: Georgetown.  Eh, who needs 'em.

Congratulations. It looks like you're cleaning up on your "Washington" schools.

No, not really.  I really like the idea of Washington and Lee, but Minnesota offered me money.  Washington University I haven't researched that much in comparison with the others.  I'd say GW is my dark horse at this point, only because I don't really want to go to a school that big, and also because I don't think they give out much financial aid.

It's really gonna get interesting if I get into Vandy, because that's in Nashville, and I wouldn't have to move to go there, and could stay here with all my friends.  But it'll also get interesting in the off-chance that a T-14 ends up admitting me, because it would be really nice to know that I wouldn't have to obsess over grades, and could still get a nice job making bank after graduation.

So for now, I'm just researching up on the schools that admitted me, trying to learn what makes each one special.  As time goes by, and my acceptances and dings come in and I know what the ultimate field of contenders for my tuition money will be, I will make up my mind.

congrats zap--hey what are your numbers

165/3.86(LSAC GPA).  I don't know how competitive I am for the top schools yet (other than that Georgetown dinged me and I don't take that as a good sign), but I seem to be quite competitive for my target range (25-15ish schools).
