On the website it says that students admitted ED must "commit to attend The George Washington University Law School and pay a non-refundable seat deposit in the amount of $1,500 no later than Jan 31, 2010."

Well, I think it's sort of strange that if you're admitted with a full tuition scholarship that you have to pay $1,500. I guess a seat deposit is considered separate from tuition? Or is this something that they reimburse you for? Are there any other sort of small "hidden charges" someone who is admitted ED could expect?
Also, do Pres. Merit Scholars get any sort of academic perks? Like a special faculty adviser, first pick for clinics, or anything like that?
Is anyone here an ED scholarship person? I just have a lot of questions about it b/c I'm considering doing GW ED in the coming cycle. Thanks!
I got a lot of money from em (105,450) but I didn't apply ed. I am not sure if they get any "perks" besides being free. Having "Recipient, George Washington University Law School Presidential Scholarship" on your resume should, however, help significantly. I am assuming that the legal community knows that it is full tuition and thus will assume that someone with this scholarship is T14 material.
