that completely depends on your financial situation, career goals, etc

Waitlisted today.

I was a long shot so this is actually more positive than negative.

This should be in "choosing a law school" forum.

That said, don't come anywhere close to paying sticker at GW.

I think if you want biglaw, then GW. Also, depends on how much money. Idk, right now I have a similar dilemma... I guess don't overthink it and wait until you have a specific set of decisions to make. Good luck!

I did. But scholarships are not up yet. The financial aid info is just general stuff, and it says they'll start emailing scholarship offers in late January.

It has the generic info. It says this:
Every admitted student will automatically be considered for Law School merit scholarships. These awards are made on the basis of information contained in the admission file; no additional information is required, though you are welcome to send any additional information that you wish. The Law School begins awarding merit scholarships in late January, via email. The Admissions Office will continue make merit awards every few weeks until all merit funds are exhausted.

How was the interview? What sorts of questions were asked? How long did it take?

Same here.

Guess they are keeping the 166ers around in case they concede a median drop.

Waiting on an interview as well. My interviewer has not contact me yet, which I hope happens soon. I'd rather not drag out the process longer than it needed.

My interviewer was incredibly fast at getting back to me, and also called instead of emailing. I'm not sure if this is normal, but I have a really good impression so far. At the least, I think it's going to be a pleasant experience.
