BC vs. Fordham vs. Dozo vs. Waitlist options

Postby IsleMet » Tue Mar 01, 2011 7:05 pm

Honestly, this is probably a no brainer. I just want to make sure that I'm sane because I only have until Friday to make a decision.

Career Goal: Public Interest Law in NYC (child advocacy, juvenile justice, education law, domestic violence/family law). This could change in the distant future, but definitely not in the next 5-10 years.

BC: Full Tuition Scholly

Fordham: Nothing yet...not expecting a whole lot, if anything

Cardozo: Full Tuition (could probably negotiate a stipend)

Waitlist: Cornell, Georgetown, BU

Intangibles: Family in New York (though not close enough for free housing), know Boston well,

BC. Nothing else to say, it really is a no-brainer.

Yeah, I have pretty much made my decision. I didn't expect to leave NYC, but I don't think there's a decision to be made.

numbers for those curious: 166 / 3.6 (PM if you want to know about the BC full ride)...numbers which make me an unlikely candidate for the schools on my wait list (except BU...which I was pretty bitter about lol)

Absolutely BC, and may I say congratulations on that generous scholarship offer they gave you, too!

No, no, no...totally 100% in love with BC and their offer (it does have strings attached and it was not all merit based). I was annoyed about not getting into BU haha. I know my numbers aren't golden for BU, but I had significant leadership experience in the BU community during undergrad, two years of Teach for America, and a Masters degree so I thought that those would push me in. I was waitlisted at BU two years ago and received the same fate despite all of these improvements to my application. I definitely don't want to sound ungrateful, I am ecstatic about attending BC :-)

Thanks for the feedback all! I appreciate it.
