I am dying a slow and painful GW-related death right now. I wish they would just go ahead and let me know so I could move on with my life and make travel plans to visit other schools.

I literally have not been able to do anything productive today.... between maniacally waiting for the GW ED decision and the Michigan email debacle over on that thread, I have become totally consumed.... hope we all hear soon!!!

I fairness to GW, they committed to January 15th to mail decisions, so they are still well within their window. I guess we should be happy as we are still in the running...

Sometimes no news is good news :)

FINALLY. Waitlisted. I guess it's not that much of a surprise. I am just happy to get a decision. Good luck to everyone else; I hope some of you other EDer's get it!

Applied ED and found out I was waitlisted today. Well, it's better than rejected, right?

Does anyone know what the chances of getting accepted now are?

If you don't mind, any particular reason for W&M over W&L?

No reason at all..if I get into w&m im not def going to go there..it will just be an acceptance that competes with my w&l acceptance..my others, richmond, american, gm, and 2 safeties, don't compete so far..buttt I'm loving w&l..but it would be cheaper to attend w&m (instate). W&l gave me 15k a year but even with that its a lot of $$$

Fortunately W&L sent me an email saying my decision will be released Thursday (1/12), and I applied ED for GW so one way or another they're going to have to at least pretend I exist :)

I got into W&M, and its definitely looking like a winner to me now that GW has waitlisted me.

I like the environment of W&M better, williamsburg seems like a much nicer area, and the job prospects seem about the same.

Anyone else feel like this is a sympathy waitlist? None of us got rejected.

I'd rather take a ding than a waitlist from a school I ED'd to. Not good enough for a deferral now after i signed my freedom away to you shows I won't be good enough later haha.

Dear uptown,

We have completed our review of your application for fall 2012 admission to The George Washington University Law School through the Early Decision Program. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer you admission to our fall 2012 entering class.

Sincerely,.....

I wouldn't necessarily say job prospects are the same: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=150681

But I will say that I have first hand knowledge of an individual who transferred from GW to W&M because they did not like the environment of GW

According to your profile we applied to many of the same places and so far have similar results. I got dinged tonight and was ED as well. I hear from W&L thursday. Good luck uptown, you sound like a cool girl. :)

They're close enough. I don't see any glaring differences between the two, unless I'm missing something. W&M looks slightly better overall. However, scholarship money could definitely sway me between the two (hypothetically, seeing that I didn't apply to W&L).

Back on topic:

Condolences to everyone WLd/dinged today.

Anybody got accepted ED? They said they will send out decision by Jan 15, but it's a Sunday, so should be before Jan 13.

Haven't seen any post here about accepted ED...
