I'm actually leaning towards GW over WashU. I have a feeling GW is going to climb in the rankings this year anyway, I'd prefer to practice in NY or DC, and the starting salary and OCI options seem stronger for east coast jobs. That's a decent rationale, no?

That's the rationale I'd use.

If you squirm on over to the "Students & Graduates" Board (making a new account and all), you'll find a bunch of GWU students. They seem very vocal and willing to speak about their school. So give that a shot to get candid opinions.

Thanks!

Not sure about number one, but definitely being considered strongly at this point. Debating between SMU and Fordham (SMU offered 75K, quite enticing).

Things could change if Emory or WashU decide to let me in!

Good luck to everyone else!

I just checked, Waitlisted as of yesterday.  My file was complete on Jan. 9th.  Out of curiosity, can anyone who has been accepted tell us when the deposit is due?

Thanks!

If you get into WashU, would you go there over Fordham? I'll go if you go, and if I don't get into a T14 and decide not to go to GW, heh.

Definitely. Sounds like a good deal to me. haha... I'm really for a school like WashU, seems relaxed, and easy going.. must be wonderful..

I don't know when the deposit is due; i guess all that info. will come with the actual letter. Someone else who has the letter would probably know.

Think WashU would be better for me then? I want to practice biglaw in nyc

Go to Fordham then.. You'd get that much easier, I'd say. I don't think there's a substantive difference in the New York market in favor of Wash U despite its higher ranking. In fact, I'd say there must be a Fordham bias.

If not that, then you have to give in and go to GWU. You did say you wanted either NY or DC. That makes more sense. Wash U is nice to have has an option at this point, not a primary choice.

True. I'm still only complete at Fordham though, so no idea if I'll even get in.

So GW > WashU > Fordham? What order for me? I'm an approval-seeker like that  :o

GW = (>) Fordham > Wash U

This is if your goal is still to be in either the DC market and NY market. Ask yourself which market you want more. If NY, Fordham; If DC, GW. If they're equal, I think I'd go with which one "feels" more right for you. I'd lean towards GW, though, b/c it's the second best school in its city as opposed to Fordham which is third (or fourth).
