Sportseditor23: I'm definitely considering it, but I also didn't get accepted @ Penn and GULC like you did (as per your LSN profile).  I really wish Emory would just help me out with any amount of merit scholarship.

Kev: you haven't received any merit aid from GW yet?

put me down for 60 large.

Very nice - congrats.  You gonna bite?

thanks. it's a nice offer, but with their tuition of 32/year it's still a chunk. At this point I'll probably still go to UT.

Just called the admissions office to make sure I was complete, and they told me an acceptence letter was in the mail with a scholarship offer, probably the standard $12,000/year?  Which would make the school $20,000 per year.  Pricey and low average starting salary of $86,000.  I am tempted, though....The only higher ranked school that I applied to, and have a reasonable chance at, is the University of Texas.  It sounds weird for me to say this, but I may end up saying 'Missouri here I come!'.

Skainch,

Saw on your LSN you had the received date as 1/24 for Wash U.  Is this when they requested your LSDAS Report?

Congrats on the acceptance and scholarship!  Great great place.

No scholarship at GW thus far -- you think I have a shot?

No, I think I updated that when I noticed they had requested my LSDAS report (from the LSAC website).  I did not receive any communication from this school as far as application received or completed.

Skainch,
I thought WUSTL sent acceptances via e-mail.  They told you they sent your acceptance & scholarship offer through USPS?

yes, just got the acceptence in the mail today.  Scholarship was $5000 a year for 3 years with no GPA requirement.  I don't think this is going to be enough for me to go to this school.  $27,000 a year for a school outside of T14, when plenty of other $10,000 T2 schools have average starting salaries of $100,000+.  Not worth the debt, right?  I'm thinking the classifications should be T15 (I love UT), then 16-100, then Tier 3, then T4.  So by this logic WUSTL is in the same category as UH and Cardozo.
