She meant does Wake place scholarship recipients in the same section so that students will have a higher chance of losing their scholarships after the grading curve. I don't think any school will admit to doing it but there are some that are rumored to do it to free up more scholarship money for the incoming class.

I wonder if any of the current students would know this?


Current 1L here. Wake doesn't section stack. I think it was mentioned in the "discuss your school" forum, but there seems to be a fairly even split of scholarship recipients among the sections. There are always some folks that are "smarter" in some sections than in others, but I think that's just the random draw of dividing folks into sections. As far as I know, most folks (including those on scholarships) are happy with their sections and feel that they are fairly divided for the most part.

I posted a question on the "Discuss your law school" forum and was told that Wake does not section stack. Scholarship recipients are pretty evenly spread out.

Driving up from Columbia, SC that morning. I get to leave my house around 5am, I'll be the one asleep on my feet.

I really really want to get off this waitlist and send in my deposit right away, does anyone have any other suggestions that don't border on harassment? Thanks!


Not sure that coming this Friday would be the best idea since it is a scheduled ASD; the admissions team may not be accessible. The event is over at 2pm though. Maybe you should plan on coming around that time. I think that a face to face would be a great way to put your name in their heads for an acceptance :-) Good Luck!

Anybody else get the FAFSA aid e-mail? Not sure when the new tuition figures came out (so it may be old news to everyone else), but tuition for 2011-2012 is $38k, which is approximately a $1500 increase from last year I believe. http://admissions.law.wfu.edu/about/tuition/

I just go that too. That's a pretty significant jump in tuition. Hoping that some of the cost of living numbers are inflated a bit.

Does anybody know the format that they want us to email it back in? It's kind of odd because you have to copy and paste it.

Also, the "I will not use these loan proceeds for non-educational related expenses" is kind of vague. "Related" just means necessary expenses that you can't afford while in school (essentially the items factored into the student budget), right?

Pretty sure it has been said a thousand times ITT that they don't negotiate. I doubt you will ever get a response.

I was just doing some figuring with those numbers and they appear to be very generous with the COL numbers. If you are going to be rooming with others it is even more significant.

If I end up at Wake I think I would ideally want to live in the Crowne Apartments in a double seeing how it would be significantly less than a single. Does Wake have any kind of forum or process for hooking up potential roommates? Or would that be done on a site like this?

I am pretty sure they host a house hunt in the summer. This could cause a problem if you currently live far away.

It states on the website that there will be a housing/roommate list on the website after March 20th so that would be a good place to start.

Just try and pick up strangers on TLS to room with. If I can't make house hunt, that's my plan.

hmmm you sound like a risk-taker. We could make good roommates! haha (not that I'm a risky person to room with)

I'm from Philly so that probably would be a problem.

This sounds ideal to me.

As far as picking a roommate on TLS based on icons/posts, I don't know, I'm not that much of a risk-taker to be honest. I have roomed with the same guys for my entire span as an undergraduate, so I find the whole process of selecting a new roommate daunting.

The housing options look stellar down south though compared to up here. My roommates and I pay over 2,400 a month (not including utilities/cable/parking) for a 2-bedroom place that isn't even half as nice as those crowne apartments I was looking at....and we got a good deal on our place.

I like sour patch kids and names that sound like, but are not, lettuce.

Got the financial aid email today. Just curious: did anyone receive any need-based grants? I was sort of hoping for something after getting my financial aid package from Loyola Chicago :(

I'm kind of fearful to get a roommate the first year, because of the potential for roommate problems distracting from studies and adding stress. Plus, I have a dog and my husband will be visiting me about every other weekend, and that might get awkward.
