That's it.

I've made my decision. I cannot do this damned "what if" game any more.

UNL provided me a great undergrad experience, and I do want to come back here to practice, but all those opportunities at Wash U can't be passed up. It's more expensive, sure, and I know that TLS is usually not a fan of the more expensive route, but it's a bearable cost considering that cost of living is low where I want to practice, so paying back the loans is quite possible even with a 40k job here. My parents said they'll help with living expenses too, so it's not like I'm going in with just the scholarship.

It's finally done. Months of agonizing are finally over.

When I called admissions about my current scholarship and to verify that was my merit award(because That Marion C. Early Fund was very confusing to me) they told me to email it here: Admiss@wulaw.wustl.edu

goodluck on getting an increase!

Also, The money they offered me is slightly more than USC is giving me. Do you think USC would budge at the difference, or are they in such different markets that it means nothing to them?

I...I could buy you one of the crappy Transformers movies if that would help out.

Actually, that would just be more depressing.

Frustrating that some people are getting automatically bumped and offered more and more money and my request has gone unacknowledged.

This has really turned me off to WUSTL.

Couldn't agree more. At least don't specifically tell me that no requests for more funds will be acknowledged until after deposit deadline.

I haven't been told anything actually, no response what-so-ever to my "big negotiation letter".

The reality might be that my LSAT (the only number worthwhile to them) is now above median/75th and thus not as worthwhile for them to secure.

Wannabe,

I don't know what kind of weird crush you had on Snapdragon--she's cool. Really. But she has a LT boyfriend who wasn't going to move to STL. You weren't in the running, bro. So just get excited that PresidentJLH is going to teach us about corn and have a beer, k?

I liked your old overzealous schtick better, wannabe. Don't let the butthurt Emory waitlister lynch mob get you down.

RedGiant, it's a schtick, I recruited sunny a lot harder than snapdragon (and acted way more depressed when he/she decommitted from wustl), don't get mad I haven't signed you up for the wannabe blitzkrieg yet :). I'm glad pres is coming, now I can witness a Nebraska's fan's disappointment first hand.

And I will just wait for PAC-12 football to (never) be broadcast in STL and instead revert to watching Luck, as he'll be more accessible. Go Card.
