Comparable schools (ND, WUSTL, UIUC, Vandy, etc.) all have a bunch of kids from Ivy schools, other private schools with good reps, and top publics like Berkeley/UVA/Michigan. Very strange disparity. I guess once a prestige whore, always a prestige whore, eh Ivy/T20 undergrads? :oops:


HUH?

ridiculous misinformation...
Not sure what list I was looking at, maybe one from a past year? Whatever it was I checked it several times because I couldn't believe how short the list of schools was :| That seems more like what I expected to see.


USNews sucks for yet another reason :)

you'll only need to drink 1,025 sodas per day to realize $200k in savings and make GWU totally worth it


:D

Just for the record: there was a certain vending machine near the GULC cafeteria that regularly dispensed two for one sodas.

I was going to say, where did you live in the DC area for $700 a month? Manassas? If in the city, where and with how many roommates?


Cap hill group rowhouse.

+1. Or Van Ness, Cleveland Park, Glover Park, even group houses in arlington. Cheap rooms may not be the easiest to find but it's definitely possible.



If you choose to live in a cheaper area of DC there are many downsides though esp. $$$ taxi rides... esp. if you are a girl. Metro closes pretty early, and even then you will probably have a significant walk to your apt. I have a friend who got assaulted in one of the nicest areas of DC walking home last weekend... FYI I live a few blocks from GW and split a 1 bedroom apt that is $1800 total ($900 for me)

Everyone at GW was friendly. The law school, located on the main undergrad campus (as opposed to GULC's which is in a different location than the main campus) had a very vibrant atmosphere with tons of study/eating/etc. options. In general I just felt like the people at GW were happier than the people I met at GULC.

GW's admissions office went out of their way to give me a tour, allow me to sit in on a class, etc. GULC handed me a map.

Obviously these things are no reason in themselves to pick one school over the other but overall I felt like they were the cherry on top of what I already liked about GW.


I just visited Gtown and GW and had the same experience. GW's admissions was pretty awesome and the students there seemed waaayyyy happier. I went thinking if I got in to Gtown I would take it over GW in a heart beat but now I am not so sure. I think I would be a better fit at GW. Though the SCOTUS settlements in the moot court room and the lap pool at Gtown are pretty awesome...

You are actually more likely to get assaulted in dupont circle than in many of the supposedly "bad" areas. Muggers tend to target the high traffic + wealthy areas. For getting around DC, get a bike. It's a small town- you can get around just about anywhere faster by bike than you can by bus or train.
