I talked to an alum and she told me that it isn't so concervative socially, but that it is very conservative in economic thought. But, in the good news, she graduated in 09 and found a job before she graduated as did all of her friends!

In via voice message! Applied late December/Early Jan.

Re: conservative. I too have heard that they law school is economically conservative, but not necessarily socially conservative. I know for a fact that it attracts students to its law and economics program, which is slanted towards a more libertarian viewpoint.

First, congratulations to everyone accepted at George Mason!!!

Second, in the "Discuss Your School" section of the TLS Forums, a very informative 2L at GMU (Pendulum) has been answering questions about the school. If you want to learn more about the school from a current student, feel free to drop by, read what's been written, and ask some questions. Hope to see some of you there to discuss the law school!

I think everyone who has been accepted gets a phone call.


I think what we've seen so far is:

Accept = phone
Ding = email
Waitlist = snail

since this keeps popping up at the top of my posts, figured I'd drop in and say thanks again for the YP GMU, you're right, I didn't really want you. :wink: congrats and good luck everyone.

They do call throughout the day. I noticed that my status changed to decision rendered in the morning. I did not get a phone call until the evening. Good luck!

I was WL at GMU but offered to participate in the Pre-Admission Summer Trial (PAST) program. The program description says ranking high (even #1) after the 2 week class does not guarantee admission. Wondering if it's worth participating bc ranking high could potentially help me and ranking low could potentially hurt me, and if I choose not to take part, I still have spot on wait list.

Anyone have any insight? GMU was a reach for me and so far I've only been accepted to safety schools.

Ugh, my status went to DR this morning but didn't get a call or email. I guess that probably means WL.

Next round of decisions today perhaps?
Or are they backed up due to the snow?
