Is he being stationed in NC? or will you be living alone and he will be stationed somewhere away from the law school you choose? I only ask because this is likely to be the scenario I am in as well. My husband is going to go active duty in the fall. He is currently in the National Guard. It would be nice to know someone in a similar situation. :-)

The second... we previously thought he'd be stationed in Harrisburg, PA, so I applied to PSU and got a great scholly. Then we received word that he'd be stationed on the D.C. area, so I've been putting all my eggs in the University of Maryland basket. Now, he's going to be at Parris Island, SC, so we're going to have to be living apart. Is that what situation you'll be facing as well? We could have a support group!

Earlier in the thread some people suggested you can get reimbursement once you matriculate, but I called and asked about this last week, they told me they did not do any reimbursement for attending Scholar Days.

Strange. They told me the opposite. It probably wouldn't be the first time an admissions office has been inconsistent with their response! Let's hope you are right though. I will be sure to keep my receipts just in case.

I just signed up for the 4th. Hope to see some of you guys there!

I'm new to the forum (well, as a poster at least), but I will also be there on the 11th and staying in the hotel they offered a discount for. I'm venturing down (from New York) with my family.

I don't know much about the area, so I'm going to use this trip to get an idea of whether or not I would like to live there for the next 3+ years.

I am going to be there the 4th, but I'm not staying at the discounted hotel. It's still around $90 a night and didn't get that great of reviews. If anyone else is thinking about staying somewhere else use priceline's name your own price. I am paying $45 a night for a pretty good hotel, but it is around a 15 minute drive.

Also, what are you guys planning to wear? The itinerary seems pretty casual (eat, welcome, visit classes, eat, panel).

+1 Staying at the recommended hotel for the sake of being close to campus.

Business casual. Went last year as well and that's what people were wearing.

I just checked my application status on Wake's page and it says "Decision Letter Pending." Did anybody else get this? I've only been "Complete" and "Administrative Review" so far...I'm hoping this is a good thing?!?!
