uh oh! congrats! what's the plan?
no clue. honestly, i'm waiting to hear about $$ from both places before i start to freak out. but in the end, my passion is international human rights, and uva wins hands down on that. it's still a nice feeling to be wanted .... even if you were wanted off the waitlist ... humph.
No need to freak out. It's a wonderful dilemma. (I have one myself.
) Have you already paid a deposit? And did either school tell you when you would hear about merit aid?
Also, didn't you turn down GULC? You would consider Virginia's Intl HR to be stronger than Georgetown's? Why? (not being rhetorical; I'm genuinely interested)
Sorry so many questions!
yea, i deposited at virginia, turned down GULC because they were trying to lock me into a scholarship a month ago. i just got an overall better feel at virginia - looking at the international scope, perhaps GULC is better in some ways, but i like virginia's atmosphere, topped with the better overall ranking, topped with the human rights clinic, first amendment clinic, and supreme court clinic, and had to go with my gut and fight for virginia.
yea, the sweet $$ and the boyfriend are at GULC, but he supported my decision 100%.
