I'd been going back and forth between WFU (decent scholly) and George Mason (out of state sticker). GMU said there was a possibility of some scholarship money opening up, but I still haven't heard anything. Their seat deposit date is creeping up (4/15), and the deposit is $750! I can't justify that. I do want to be in DC ultimately, but the tuition just isn't worth it to go to school up there.

I was also still waiting on an admissions decision to UNC, but I've given up on them. Wake is actually cheaper for me than in-state tuition at UNC, the facilities are nicer, the classes are smaller, and people are friendlier. Carolina - you had your chance and you blew it.

So that's that. I look forward to meeting you all soon! (house hunt, perhaps?)


I got my waitlist last year on the last day. It sucked. I was in-state, so it sucked. But, just like you, it ended up being cheaper to go to Wake then UNC. And I liked Wake better for all the reasons you said. I'm really glad with my decision. Besides, I'd rather go someplace that treats me like they want me.

Same here. I actually got into UNC, but chose Wake for various reasons -- all of yours included. I don't think you can really go wrong with either, but I'd say you made a very good decision.

Ok, so I have been snooping around and posting here and there throughout my cycle, but I am now 100% on board at Wake, so I figured I had better post in this forum and officially join the FB group. YAY! :D

I have only marginally been researching apartments and not really doing much work in that aspect, am I going to be having a problem finding a place if I am just trying to get in at one of the Crowne complexes or something along those lines? I think I am going to get a 1 bedroom my first year, at least that is my plan.

And I am still hoping that poker group that was beginning to form is still happening. I know someone in another forum mentioned they have a table, but I have an 8 seater as well and a large chip set. This totally needs to happen (I know, it sounds like I have a gambling problem, and I am OK with it :lol: )

Girl has a table I think. It better not interfere with our Trivia group.

Welcome to the group, we are looking to be pretty awesome. Have you joined the facebook group yet?

Also, I wouldnt sweat apartments. I called around today, and if you are not getting a place till July or June, no worries. Most of the places I talked too said they operated on a 30 day or 60 day notice, and didnt know if they had openings for that time frame yet.

welcome nail! please, don't hesitate in getting your awesome on, as we've clearly already started without you.

I DO have a table, but Im unsure if the SO will relinquish it... or if the potential roomy is gonna mind not having a dining room table :lol:
poker is def gonna be a thing. pkr is srsbns.

JDem, NOTHING will interfere w trivia. & i'm not even talking to u until ur 100%. i couldnt deal w the heartbreak of you choosing another school last minute :lol:

Typically it goes to one person, maybe 2.
