I attended the Admitted Students reception last night as well. I think it's interesting that they are offering a monthly stipend to intern in a legal setting during the year after you graduate (if you are unable to find a job). I could not help but wonder about the amount of the stipend!
Overall, I left with a good impression, but it also seemed like the faculty and alumni were trying to sell the law school. I honestly was not expecting that feeling. The students seemed happy and the alumni were pleasant. I'll be attending Preview Day and I'm looking forward to learning more about GW.

I met some great people and especially enjoyed chatting with professors, but I didn't find anyone who made a truly compelling argument for GW over Georgetown. Also, I had two people who told me flat-out to go to NYU (even though they were GW alums), which I thought was very surprising. Dean Berman was a very impressive speaker, though. What did others think of the event?
