Taking the high road; it doesn't satisfy as it should.

Reasoning? They seem about on par in employment statistics (via LST). That would be the only metric I would use to determine "peer" rankings

Yeah, and he did so to say it would be ridiculous to pay $70k more for GTown than Vandy.

Ridiculous seems a little harsh. How about, 'based on one's personal opinions and preferences, spending the extra money to go to G'town could be a bad move'

WHoa.... Decision mailed date of 12/6. That was def. not there last night. Pretty surprised, just went complete 11/14

Here's hoping for good news! If it's good news the Fedex package comes within about 2 days right?

Hoping this is not the first round of rejects!

Misinformed? The topic under discussion was entirely one of preference/individual judgment. 'Misinformed'? Because I'd be willing to forego the cost of a Land Rover for a shot at the best school in the DC area (and, by extension, a government/PI job there)? The personalities ITT are so grating. Why can't you just let someone respond to a hypothetical that was being bounced around a few pages ago? If you think that prestigious employment in D.C. ain't worth a dime extra, then that's fine. I think it is. I thought I took the mickey out of this bullshit by not engaging in Grizz's self-aggrandizement. Apparently, there's one other poster fueling the idiotic fire, thinking it's "misinformed" to hold employment prospects that in any way differ from his own.

I've already been accepted to this school, so I'm more interested in finding out the potential classmates I'd have should I choose to matriculate. The small sample size of 1Ls and prospective 0Ls has not been represented well. With students that offer profound critiques--like calling my post,
dumb stuff
--how could I not be sold on Vandy, on the caliber of students I'd be working with? Way to go, Grizz; you're driving away a student with #s above both medians in an already moribund application season. I'm sure Vandy's admissions office appreciates your handiwork.

FWIW, it would be great to return to the purpose of this thread. Somehow, I doubt this will happen. Good luck to all those accepted, and it sure would be great to have some meaningful discussion here, just in case some redeeming quality of the school/its students/its career prospects would surface.

In this post, poster responds to "off topic" subjects and then complains how the thread is going "off topic".

^Because it clearly is helping no LS applicant, which is the fucking purpose of this website. I like to think of myself as the Dutch boy trying to put his finger in the dike, for it clearly has been leaking for at least a page of posts. (Insert sexual innuendo tangent now).

The hypocrisy and irony of the situation appears to be lost on you. Time to stop raging broski.

70K is a lot of money to forego to choose a school that has very similar employment prospects to the one offering money, especially given the absurd class size of said school. Again, LOL at "non-peer". School ranked 14 vs school ranked 30? Sure, non-peer. 14 vs 16? C'mon now.

There are plenty of reasons to choose GULC over Vandy, but the specific reasons I quoted a page ago aren't good ones.

Furthermore, your assertion that DC is essentially closed to Vandy grads is just plain wrong. It's the most selective and competitive market in the country, and it's hard to break from here, but it's not "essentially closed."

And that's it.

Just incidentally, bigfed hiring is virtually nil (from everywhere) and that is unlikely to change.

Doesn't it say to call the school if you don't hear back within a certain window?

I heard back, we set something up, he cancelled 10 minutes before the meeting, said we'd meet up that weekend but never specified when or where, and then hasn't responded since then.

I'd hardly say this was an 'unsolicited entrance'. I've been posting in this thread for at least a month now. As for your butthurtness: you were being a dumbass, I called you out. Get over it, horrorbusiness. How long can you hold a meaningless internet grudge for?

I love TLS. You can't win, because the troll, the funny agitator, always sways the audience, whose attention span is so short they cannot read the actual post history. Apparently, no one can read the page-topping post, in which I attempted to take the high road and be done with whatever bullshit "raging" was instigated. Apparently Grizz, as a Vandy 1L during exam season, has nothing better to do than troll the old posts of admitted students. Why is this not the crime? The crime is being 'mad, bro'?

I think it's more fruitful to discuss employment prospects, so I'll thank Grizz for at least mentioning them in a tertiary way in his post. Look at the numbers. The point is simply that the risk of $70,000 (Vandy's most-given scholarship) is smoothed somewhat (although, of course, not entirely) at GULC. Good LRAP programs make 5-figure debt increments matter even less. And please, let's notice the bias here. Grizz goes to Vandy. I go nowhere yet and have no reason to favor one school over the other.

Seems like other internet grudges are coming to the surface ITT. I absolve myself of that particular unintended consequence of people calling me 'misinformed'.

operative word in my previous post was "argument" (not thread). contrary to your belief and your many insistings (might not be a word), i ain't mad/grudgin'. i was lightheartedly trolling just like you were :mrgreen:
