I got an e-mail saying exactly what day and even time my admissions decision would post (Thursday,March 29th). I'm a little late in the cyle (late LSAT), but did this happen to everyone else? I find it really helpful but still kinda odd.

Another fine example of W&L/Brett's helpful and personal touches. :)

Withdrew my application. Was a sad moment, filling out the withdrawal survey. Was a tough choice for me, but Lexington vs. Atlanta was the main thing for me. Good luck to everyone, and hope someone gets my moneys!

Where'd you accept? I got same $$ as you at W&L and Emory, and some $$ at UGA as well. I'm really struggling between W&L and UGA right now.

I did. I drove and didn't get into Lexington until about 9 PM that night. I actually just received my reimbursement check yesterday.

I decided on Emory. The difference in money between UGA and Emory is fine for me to keep my options open to working somewhere that isn't JUST in Georgia. That said, I do love living in Atlanta, and part of me just felt that Emory fit, and UGA just didn't. I guess that's my Georgia Tech bias

Holy moly another PR major. :shock: I thought I was alone on TLS.


I will be withdrawing this week, unless someone can justify W&L at sticker. Was really hoping for some kind of scholarship, but got the scholly ding letter shortly after acceptence.

ditto. It hurts to have to cross them off (everyone's been SO nice and helpful) but I can't really justify being in the middle of nowhere (far away from internship opportunities) AND paying sticker, especially when I have $$ at similiarly ranked schools. Good luck to those on the W/L.

Unless you have a job lined up w/ family/connections, nowhere save HYS is worth sticker. Smarter to go with another school that will leave you with less crippling debt. Good luck in your legal pursuits!

same here. i wish w&l was located basically anywhere else besides the middle of nowhere, virginia. it's funny coz i applied with no real interest in w&l but it was the only school i really had second thoughts about withdrawing from so far

Can someone who have already attended one of the Open Houses or visited W&L tell us if the town is walkable? I'm flying in early Friday on the 30th so I'm wondering if I can look around the town without driving/taking a cab. Any advice will be much appreciated!! :D

Town is definitely walkable (and their are no cabs in Lexington IIRC). I was easily able to walk downtown from the Col Alto hotel and check everything out. The school itself is a bit further, but I made that walk multiple times as well.

I know they suggest something dressier for Saturday dinner, but I don't really know what to make of that. I have a blue floral sundress that I was planning on bringing but I don't know if that would be too casual? What did most people wear??

To piggyback the question before me, what about the coffee reception on Friday night?

they suggested casual dress in something I read on-line. They mentioned that most kids wear "jeans and sweater," whatever that actually means. I went to W&L UG and can say that kids there tend to dress up. On that note, if anyone has any Lex/W&L related quetions, I'd be glad to take them.

I'm actually having the same difficulty deciding, but am leaning towards UGA myself. That in-state tuition is so nice, and though I don't really want to say no to W&L, I do want to end up in Atlanta. I think that UGA (or Emory) is the safer choice for job prospects, but it's still a tough one.

Anyone else getting there in the early afternoon on Friday to go see what the town is like and possibly stuff their face with delicious food?

Me!! I'm actually flying out of St Pete, Fl. at the crack of dawn tomorrow but will be staying in Roanoke to see family. I'm leaning towards the Blue Sky for lunch and the Bistro on Main (which I adore) for dinner. :lol: No, who, me? I never eat.

Yeah, I'm aware I'm not making the smart ECONOMIC decision, but I paid 0 dollars for tuition undergrad. Emory just felt right for me when I visited, and I can't say anything more than that. Sometimes you just know. Like when I met my girlfriend (why would I say that, knowing she would never read this forum? I must be pretty whipped)
