Is the alternate list basically a soft rejection for money? Georgetown is my first option by far but sticker prices scares me.

Also on the alternate list. FWIW I know a guy that got quite a bit of scholarship off the list two years ago. I think they just have to wait and see how many people withdraw and free up $.

fun fact, the status checker DOES change to "Deposits Fulfilled"

They have me listed as "not a US Citizen" at the moment... not sure if that's really important but hopefully they can fix it soon.

Has anybody gone to / is anybody planning to attend one of the out-of-town receptions?

They do straight up reject people for scholarships so at least you're better off than that. #notbitter #jktotesbitter

Not really - 1.89% increase in BL+FC but a 3% decrease in Full Time, Bar Required...

Has anyone received an email asking if a scholarship in the range of $x-$x+5k "would make the difference in your decision?" Was kind of thrown because it didn't appear to be a specific offer but instead was asking how I would feel about a range of merit aid.

Just FYI we have access to a lot of interesting talks. http://apps.law.georgetown.edu/webcasts/

Guess what I've been doing this ENTIRE WORKDAY. If it's locked you can sign in with the same info you use for myAccess

BL+FC doesn't really bother me that much, since I have brainwashed myself into believing the self selection argument, wish we had more than acecdata and overall PI/gov placement to see if that was true though

ETA: Also looks like salary response rate went up


I dont think PI self-selection alone makes up for the 20% difference between it and the rest of the lower T14, however, that plus the large transfer class (which I assume doesnt do so well at OCI), and students targeting DC Biglaw probably makes up for a good bit.

I think the same student with the same rank would fare a little worse at OCI at GULC than if they were at another lower T14, however, I still think they'd be closer to how a lower T14 student would do rather than UT, Vandy, UCLA, USC...

It is so hard not to just quit right now. I keep telling myself that 2 months of income is a significant difference (esp. at my job), but it seems progressively less worth it.

where do you want to work? if CA, then UCLA, if east coast, then GULC, if somewhere else, it depends

East coast is closer to home. But I don't have much preference... which makes it more difficult.

I'd just go with vibe - do you like the people or profs at either better? happiness is the key to success (or something cheesy like that)

Sorry to hear. What was your timeline like, if you don't mind my asking? I got into the game late and I'm expecting nothing, but figured I'd try.
