2013 grad. I never lived in the Aston, in fact I think I went there all of once to visit someone who lived there. I'm sure culture depends entirely on who lives there and/or who lives near you, which can really change from year to year. It's kind of regarded as a dorm for K-JD 22 year olds. Seemed like people who lived there liked it perfectly fine.

If anyone has specific questions for me, I finished 1L right at the bottom of Thurgood Marshall (15-35%) and graduated about the same, got no OCI interviews ... was bummed but didn't care because I didn't seriously want biglaw anyway. Now happily gainfully employed as a local prosecutor in Colorado (where I was from and had connections). Lived all three years in a group house in Columbia Heights. Most of my friends were govt/PI oriented, very few did biglaw, finding work was a hustle and a struggle. Two years out most are gainfully employed, most did a whole year of pathways. I got lucky on the employment front, but most people I know had a very stressful year post-grad.

Got a scholarship bump today after sending a negotiation email a couple of weeks ago! This puts GW back on my list of schools to consider :D

Who else feels like getting FB group going with me? Sent in the deposit weeks ago and am looking at apartments now, so it's fairly set in stone! :idea:

There is a Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1532103893708732/ -- some of the current students are moderating it, answering questions, etc. Really great conversations and resources. :-)

Hey everyone,

I'm an admitted student to the class of 2019. Just wondering how many of you had success in negotiating your scholarships? I'd appreciate any insight. Feel free to PM me.

Thanks!
