What makes you feel like you won't fit in? I know Lexington is probably a slight culture shock for most, but it seems like the law school is very into having a diverse class. I guess ASW would be a good time to see if that's true.



well for starters, I have never been in cold weather in my life... ever... secondly, i've never been in a red state in my life... ever... oh and its also complete other side of the continent and theres 7000 people that live there, i think theres 7000 people on my block ha

And yes! They are blue and pretty and say W&L Law on them. They are winners. :D


I love stickers... when not just a term to describe the small fortune I would have to pay to attend a school. Leeeeeggoooo scholarship letter! (Disclaimer: Also not expecting much)


Am I the only one who is optimistic about scholarship? My low GPA with my mediocre LSAT I think warrants money! haha


I think my LSAT is too low to be optimistic about moneys. I hope I'm wrong, but I feel like they're going to tell me I should just be happy I got in and stop bitchin'.

Lived in hot weather but a blue only state? Southern California? Hawaii? lol

I'd consider VA a swing state, maybe leaning slightly red.

I'm going to be at the ASW on March 30-31. I've already got visits lined up for the other two weekends. Looks like it is going to be the least crowded of the three weekends (unless people just now being admitted fill it up).

P.S. Terrible avatar. Blue is the color. :D

Virginia isn't that bad, I used to live in Fairfax just outside DC. In terms of political leanings it's definitely leaning right but not like a real southern red state obsessed with the bible fearful of anything not white. The weather isn't that bad, and really should be the least of your worries....more than anything you might be surprised how brutal summer time is, like 100% humidity brutal. As far as there being only 7000 people, I'm kind of looking forward to it. I've lived in large cities my entire life, I think I can handle three years of minimal distractions.

I got 15k per year, ashley. So I imagine you'll get at least that if not 20k.

I meant Chelsea. Though I suppose I shouldn't be talking trash too much. Our recent record against you hasn't exactly been stellar.

It hasn't but at least you guys are comfortably in a CL spot. The way things have been going we need to win the carling cup to have a shot at any European competition.....Europa, ftw lol

Beautiful. How did I not know about this until now?

I can provide the thread with a solid Chelsea fan for everybody to rag on.

Got a letter from W&L in the mail today... but it was just the acceptance letter. More waiting for scholly news. :cry:

On the bright side, though... OMG STICKERS!!!

Not fair, playing on the latent desire of a return to things from our childhood, W&L. Very dirty.

Anyone know how essential that first day of ASW is?

Wake's ASD is March 30, and I wanted to go to W&Ls on the 30-31, so I'd probably get to Lexington pretty late on the 30th.

I just got an email saying that I was now under review and should receive a decision on my file by Thursday, January 26. I like this approach by W&L. Knowing this is really nice.

Good question. I'd help, since I know I saw a suggestion on their website, but it decided to go offline (W&L protesting SOPA? :o ).

If I recall, W&L is going to be shuttling students from Roanoke to LexVegas if you provide them your flight info.

On a related note, flights from Austin are $411!!!!

If you don't mind flying out of Houston around 7am friday there are flights for as cheap as $280. I'm sure there are much cheaper deals out there for ATX as well if you are willing to leave early.
