OK, so hopefully some of you guys can ease my concerns.. At this point, I'm weighing a decision between W&L (with $20000 scholly) and Fordham (No scholly, but about the same total price since I'd be commuting). I'm a little worried about the job prospects coming out of W&L since I want to work in a big city (DC, NY, LA). I've read the stats for both and I'm not convinced many grads come out of W&L and work elsewhere than Virginia. Thoughts?? Feel free to PM or post here if it will be helpful for everyone.

Fordham has decent placement in NY, especially compared to W&L. All things being equal, I would go with Fordham.

Email Fordham concerning the scholarship you received at W&L, receive some money, go to Fordham.

so i havent heard from w&m yet, but if admitted, for instate i would pay about 5k less (assuming i get no $$ from there) a year than i would pay at w&l with 15,500 a year scholarship. If im in this situation, do you think if i try to negotiate with w&l they will up by scholarship to 20k???..just wondering

They must be releasing every Thursday (Maybe Dean Twitty said that in the statement earlier- I forget) because my decision date is tomorrow.

I received an email about a week ago stating that they would render a decision on my file today (1/12). The email also said they'd email me this morning with a set time that they'd post my decision this afternoon. It's noon, eastern time, and I still haven't gotten my email saying when my decision will be posted.

I just checked the app status checker and my file is still "in review."

Anyone else have this situation?

That's exactly what I just posted... So yup. Glad it's not just me!

Same situation as y'all. I'm sure they'll email soon. From what everyone else has said, W&L is on top of their game in communicating decisions. I was hoping to get to find out before I have to work tonight though!

Just got the email that I'd find out at 12:45pm...in 15 minutes. My stomach's in knots.

Does anyone know how they communicate scholarship info? In the acceptance email? Or do they mail it later?

They mailed it later. However, I was in the second batch of acceptances, before they mailed any scholarship info out. They might be doing it with acceptance letters now.
