Thanks for the congrats everyone. I got a call from the dean last night, and i was jumping for joy. It was really fast. I hope you other WLers see movement soon.
I have to reply with an answer by 4/15.


Richmond is a great little city. Well, the right areas of Richmond are great. However, you'd be pretty crazy to pass up the kind of money you're getting from Wake Forest to attend U of R at sticker. Just my two cents.

That is a tough decision. I've never visited Wake, but I LOVE Richmond and the value of being placed in the internships they have access to by virtue of being IN Richmond are just amazing. The Career services lady told us last week that EVERYONE who wants to be placed in Richmond Courts get placed at some point in their tenure at Richmond. She actually said they sometimes have more postitions than they can fill!

Are you going to the Open House tomorrow? That is their second one. . .

You would not believe how personal everything is there. It is absolutely wonderful and career services is no different. You should hear some of the student stories about being "found" by a professor they don't even know to receive tips on interviewing with people/companies/judges they know personally. The alumni network is also apparently amazing.

I think a lot of it has to do with how small the class itself is, but it also seems to kind of be their mission.

I can't believe you would even consider leaving us awesome ppl at Wake. Seriously though unless you want to practice in Richmond, you should definitely go with Wake.

Gosh this is a tough call. I have to say I think you would be nuts to pay sticker at Richmond. Wake should give you the credentials to get a job in Richmond. Ijust don't think the debt is worth the risk. I know the data from USNWR is looked down on on TLS but it still paints a good enough picture to see the differences in schools. Have you checked the graphs in the sticky note?

Handed in my deposit as well. I definitely had my "OMG DEBT!" panic period. After speaking with a lot of lawyers with loan payments each month, I decided that it was manageable.

I'll be sending in my deposit in a day or two. I loved the open house on Friday and can't wait to get started, but then the idea of thousands in debt re-emerges. Should be manageable though.

Just everyone remember, this came off the email they sent last week.

"Deposits are required to be in on our office (not postmarked) by April 15th."

So I got dinged by Richmond on Tuesday, and what do I find in my mailbox today? Two spam mailings from Richmond! Both talking about how great the school is. (I've never received any communication from them except for the complete e-mail and the ding) I know it's a great school, that's why I applied. These people really know how to rub it in.

Yeah, I just needed to vent. I have a pile of waitlists and rejections and so far no acceptances this cycle. I was hoping to hear something from the schools I'm waiting on today and the only thing I find in my mailbox is stuff from Richmond and it kind of set me off lol

She must've called you right after I got off the phone with her lol. I was told the same thing, but I haven't visited so I'm going this weekend and they're giving me until Friday to decide. Thank goodness for that, they were so nice and helpful over the phone.

Hi all!

I am a terrible lurker and have been stalking this thread since page 1. Congrats to all of you that have been accepted, those of you waitlisted, and to those who have decided against U of R.

I have been waitlisted like a lot of you and Richmond is my top choice as I am local. Any of the people accepted from the waitlist thus far willing to share stats? Trying to forecast my future....a pm is fine. Of course I assume that some of you are the same people "waitlisted then accepted" from LSN but I still wanted to ask
