Anyone going to GW admit days?
« on: March 03, 2005, 06:29:43 PM »
I just got a little brouchure in the mail yesterday.  Not sure if I want to pony up for the flight though - in general, is it a good idea to go to a lot of these?  Or would it be better to wait til later and visit individually once I hear from  more schools?

Most likely.  It's a chance to meet people who will likely be your peers for three years.  You can definitely get a vibe of whether you fit in that time.  I know I could tell immediately when I applied to grad schools and went to interview.  So, if GWU is a top choice for you, you should go.  If it isn't really, then wasting the money...probably not best idea :)

I am going. And if you are worried about flights check out http://www.flyi.com. If you can fly from one of their locations (but they have limited places they fly out of) they'll take you to Dulles (and you can pick up a shuttle to the Metro for like $7) and they are usually cheap...if you are a college student it's even better because they have a college special right now. I got my round trip tickets out for $98 after tax (although I'm flying in Thursday and not leaving til Monday to save on the tickets and I'm staying with a friend that's a 1L at GW for free), but I still think they'll save you money if you fly them in general.

I'm getting excited about it. I'm also doing apartment hunting and hoping to finalize where I want to live while I'm there.

I was just checking out a study on law school job placement and was amazed at how well GW does in Miami.  Just in case you haven't already seen it: http://www.calvin.edu/admin/csr/students/sullivan/law/data.htm

I'm also headed to admitted students weekend.
