How is the campus at integrating the new guys. How supportive is the school of transfers? I've read different things.

But in the end, granted my target market is Chicago, in the event I do not get Chicago, I think being from Indiana, I can sell to employers that I want to work in Indiana if I go to ND, whereas I doubt any employer in St. Louis will take me seriously if I tell them after spending two years at WUSTL, I suddenly love STL.

Even though WUSTL has a much stronger IP program, and a gorgious campus. Not easy.


Congrats Kyle, I am still struggling to make up my mind. I am 90% leaning towards spending the money and going to Notre Dame. I spoke with an Alum from a few years ago last night who told me about his experience. He was telling me how amazing the people are. I am pretty much sold. I love St. Louis, and WUSTL is a beautiful school, but this is freakin Notre Dame.


congrats to you both....i guess these are good problems to have, but I think you guys will make the right choice

Notice this on ND's profile page on TLS: "Notre Dame Law School accepts a small number of transfer students each year (a dozen or so is typical)." I wonder if that means ND only accepted a dozen or only a dozen matriculated.

yikes, i would guess it means matriculated since they probably "over accept" to account for people declining offers

I will likely be sending in my $800 deposit to Notre Dame today and withdrawing from WUSTL, UCLA and GW. ND will only cost $23k a year and I think I would regret not going for the rest of my life.

sounds like a good choice...when did you hear from UCLA, btw...and when did you go complete? (or did you mean withdraw your application?)

I just sent in my deposit with the blessing of my beautiful fiancee. Looks like I'll be heading to South Bend. I am so very excited. :)

Well right now ND. But I'm still waiting on USC ucla, both of which would take priority over ND. Nonetheless, ND has always been a school I wanted to be at so we'll see what happens (hopefully before the seat deposit deadline)

I am looking for a roommate, or two (if it is a three-bedroom place), to save some money. Is there anyone here who has committed to Notre Dame that is interested in looking for a place? I wanted to get this in place before the end of this month.

Out of curiousity, I still haven't recieve my snail mail package. Anything worthwhile in there? i.e. should I ask ND to send another copy?

Hey Mike...when is the seat deposit due? you went complete on Friday and got a decision today correct? I am still not complete because of a transcript being lost in mail (or misplaced). crappy undergrad ! Other than that...I have everything in and waiting
