Hey, the letter of intent and deposit aren't binding right?

I don't think so.  I'm not sending anything until way later int he cycle though (mostly cause I don't have money for one deposit, much less multiple), I'd call.

I am thinking the 31st or the 7th.  Maybe I'll see you there!  I feel wierd that I'm the only person on this thing that is excited about NESL. Still hoping for suffolk though!

Don't worry, you're not the only one! If I get in, I'll be right there with you. I didn't go complete until 2/8 though, so I know it might be a while. Do you know much about Boston? I've applied to some target and reach schools, but if they dont come through, NESL, Suffolk or NCCU work for me. We're pretty similar numbers wise..151/3.45. Congrats on your acceptance. I think I'd rather pay a reasonable tuition and aim for top 10% of my class than get lost at a big, higher ranked school. We'll see if I change my mind once I get all my letters though...
If you visit, please let me know what the facilities are like. I was looking foward to moving from DC to a cheaper city, but if its Boston, it doesn't look like that will happen. Good luck with every where else!

Xmaize, i hope you get in! i do know alot about boston. i moved here from cali last summer and went to school here as an undergrad.

Your numbers are way better than mine so i can't imagine you wouldn't get in at nesl or suffolk.

NESL is small but it has a great reputation.  I go to suffolk (getting my certificate in paralegal studies now) and I can say that a bunch of the suffolk students are absolute snobs, but it hink you'll get that anywhere.

I'll let you know how it is once I actually go inside nesl!  good luck with the rest of your apps! ;D

Congrats on NESL, I was in there too but I withdraw, right now I'm trying to choose between Suffolk and Franklin Pierce in NH while waiting to hear from Northeastern. I was at Suffolk this past tuesday at the open  house..they have great building but I'm still not getting good vibe from the school. I try to accost a couple of the students but they were all heading to class or don't feel like talking to a starnger so I didn't really get much information on that day. I'm from the Merrimack Valley area and if I end up going to Suffolk I don't know if commutting from there will be an issue via commutter train. I will like to live closer to Boston but the real estate there is wicked expensive, Malden seem affordable but I will have to sell first before I buy anything there.
