I always thought I would end up at UF Law as long as I got in, but now it looks like I might be trying something new! Where else are you considering? Oh, and I got that identical scholarship to W&M.
UGA USC (those in addition to W&M and UF)
and then NW & UVA (if i am lucky enough to get into one of those schools)
the cost is a big factor for me - I dont have a huge amount of undergrad loans (under 30k) so I really want this to be as cost effective for me. Also - I am originally from up north - grew up in NJ and went to school in PA so I have only been in FL for 2.5 years (3 by the time i start law school)
Hopefully I end up with the same scholarship you received from UF - but i'm kinda liking the idea of picking up and moving back up north (well kind of up north haha). Williamsburg seems so nice and you are a quick train ride to DC (looks like tickets via amtrack are like $25-30 each way) or a 3 hour drive. and you have virginia beach (i need to be by the beach) and norfolk has decent cheaper flights to both FL and NJ/Philly...
I'll keep you posted - maybe we will both end up at UF or W&M
Are you going to the admitted students day for W&M? I will be in Europe so I will have to plan a separate trip...blah
Definitely keep me posted! I am attending ASW for W&M, I'll let you know what I think.
