Hey - I'm in/near Pitt too, down in Bridgeville working for the next couple months before heading off to law school. I have been very impressed by GW, and am most likely headed there.
As for the Pitt thing, laura, I'm sure you'll do great there. I know a guy from my gym who lives in Upper St. Clair who has done very well there at the same time commuting back and forth to USC and coaching JV basketball.
I'm quite surprised you didn't get into GW with a 3.71/163, when did you apply?
