I'm glad to see so many positive experiences from people who have visited. I just finished my first year at SMU, but am looking to transfer back close to home (DC) and just got accepted as a transfer student. I'll be taking some 1L classes with y'all if I go, so I thought I'd stop in and reiterate what y'all have said about Mr. Twitty. He's an absolutely great guy and his sincerity and candor have really stood out (to be honest, the W&M office was so awful that I didn't even apply). Plus, their turn-around time was the fastest in my cycle. Actually, I don't expect to hear back from the other DC schools until the end of July.
From talking with current students and looking at the numbers, is DC/NOVA W&L's biggest market? While I think I'd go to Georgetown or GW if accepted since family issues have pushed me back home, I'm starting to eliminate American, Catholic, and George Mason based on the ranking and allure of W&L. Anyone from the DC area have any comment on the whole W&L vs. lower-ranked DC schools for employment in the city?
Also, since I won't know where I'll be until the end of July, how readily available are apartments in the area? I probably won't have more than two weeks after making my decision to move down and settle in somewhere.
Congrats to all who have been accepted and will attend in the fall!
