This, x a million. I was waitlisted in February, and went to visit GW in March. Went on a tour, visited admissions office, and sat in on a class. I immediately wrote an LOCI that I put a lot of effort into. I made it clear I really wanted to go to GW, and would go unhesitatingly if admitted. That's how I feel, and today, my efforts paid off. As the others have said, showing interest goes a long way in getting off a waitlist. Good luck to all of those still waiting!

No movement yet? Safe to assume our chances go down exponentially if we don't make it by the end of today? :(

Has anyone heard anything today? I got the waitlist update last week, should we be expecting an email before 5?

Also a waiter. Not sure if I would have liked to have another d-day (like today was) listed in the email...on one hand, it was nice to be on the lookout for something. On the other hand, I was very unproductive today at work...

Wow, I can't believe I got in. 167 and 3.14. I wrote a GPA addendum, I think it helped.

The email specifically mentioned no merit aid is available, and the total cost for a year of attendance is nearly $70,000!!! Yikes.

I got in yesterday with a 168/3.11 -- sounds like they're reaching for LSATs right now.

I really doubt I'll go though because I'm getting $$ from WUSTL and have a pretty strong personal network in the DC area, so I am not particularly concerned about the regional drop-off. The $75K COA is fucking ridiculous. I don't understand how anyone goes to this school at sticker.

Communicate now with those who not only know what a legal education is, but can offer you worthy advice and commentary as you complete the three most educational, yet challenging years of your law related post graduate life.

I mean it definitely is scary...especially when I was offered a full scholly to st. johns, where I live, and the COA would literally be under 5 grand a year if I lived at home.

Seriously? What are you waiting for?

Now there's a charge.
Just kidding ... it's still FREE!
