Journeyman, I am dumbfounded as to how you got into IU and W&L with your numbers. 155 LSAT and you applied to Vanderbilt? Honestly?
Right now I would not be able to afford the deposit.

I've visited once, and it is the feel and atmosphere of that school that has propelled it to the top of my list, despite the fact that I have acceptances to schools that would better suit my professional ambitions. Nearly everyone I've come across that visited W&L came away quite charmed. Sorry to say, I think your decision will be a tough one, unless someone throws some money at you .By the way, I'll see you at the 24th open house at W&L...

Yep! everything is connected! The undergrad buildings are right nearby. Actually I heard some great news from an admissions person while there! The new Dean (taken from W&L) .. wants to give every single accepted student a scholarship... the school is just waiting on approval for the bigger budget. I"m not sure how large the scholarships will be but looks like everyone will be getting some money! With smaller class sizes and most likely a decreased yield from the scholarships Emory should improve in rankings as well!
Isn't giving each student a scholarship the exact same as reducing tuition (which Emory certainly can stand to do) by the amount of the lowest scholarship? This sounds like a typical Partlett (readily given by W&L) marketing gimmick.
I actually thought the same thing myself. I did some research on the new Dean at W&L and he sounds wonderful. Can you tell me more about Partlett? were there problems with him at W&L?
