Advice PLEASE!!
« on: June 01, 2004, 10:10:19 AM »
Ok, here is the deal. I got wait listed at Vandy and got into Wake. My stats are 3.65 GPA and 162. I need to know if I should stick around and wait for Vandy's response or if I should just count that as a "Thanks for the check" and move on.

Make your plans for Wake and should you receive word from Vandy, make a decision to jump ship or stay where you are.  I always favor keeping my options as open as possible.

Go ahead and plan on Wake...Vandy has waitlisted TONS of people this year...(actually, it's been a trend of theirs for a while)...and chances are pretty slim that you'll end up getting off the waitlist (sorry)...although, anything is possible...Don't give up a chance to go to Wake and then find yourself with NO options in the end...

Thanks, I figured it was a slim possibility. Looks like I am Wake bound.

ha... oddly enough, my experience is the exact opposite. I was fortunate enough to be admitted at Vandy,  yet waitlisted at Wake. Although it may be stupid of me, I am still holding out for Wake on the waitlist. I don't know if I would even go or not, but the reason has to do with geography and love. Am I crazy?? Does anyone think it would be fairly easy to transfer from Vandy to an NC law school after year 1?
