Did you guys get emails after being accepted via status checker? I've been accepted since Thursday and haven't heard anything from the school yet.

Nope, I got my acceptance packet about two weeks after my status checker updated to being accepted.

I love how after being accepted they are constantly sending information....I may be attending here (most likely) went to undergrad in upstate, and visited cuse a lot. If anyone has any questions, let me know or if you're attending next year....It's a fun school and the basketball games are wild in the dome....and hey we have Biden on our side

Has anyone tried to negotiate on scholarships/stipulations? Are they willing to negotiate?

Just got back from a campus visit. First off school is great. Long story short Syracuse as a city was left behind in the Industrial Age and no one has given a shit to come back and help. As far as the school, the people there all seem to want to make sure you get where you want to get. No one made light of the fact that you need to work your ass off. Aesthetically the campus is on par with ivy leagues. If you want to live within walking distance to the campus prepare to live in a modified house. No apartment complexes in the area except for the insanely priced Campus West dorms I mean apartments. Every student I spoke to all said if they could do it again they would be more involved with what the school offers, which is a lot. between the clinics, the dual degree programs, clubs, moot court etc. the 3 years seem to fly by. I have not committed yet but I was really impressed with Syracuse's commitment to making sure their graduates succeed. The new Dineen Hall will raise the schools ranking. The current library leaves a lot to be desired and is a noted reason as to why the ranking for the school is not higher. Also the school does use Joe Biden's name in their pitch. More so to show that if that bum (who graduated in the bottom 10% and was accused of plagiarizing) can become VP, hey who knows. All in all I will most likely be attending the cold weather is a plus in my mind, studying is the most fun thing to do. I do feel the name carries more clout than its ranking would have you believe.

I welcome the naysayers who have never had any specific interaction with the school to talk about its cost and so forth...

Hello all. I got a pretty decent package from Syracuse and I'm fairly certain I'll be attending. I look forward to meeting some of you.

If I go to Syracuse, I'm basically going with the intention of going onto PAYE after graduation although I'm somewhat fine with that.

I've been accepted and 50% chance I'll go. Does anyone know of any better housing options other than Campus West? It's pricy even though it's furnished.

I think Campus West might be the better deal for law school. I've never lived in Campus West personally but I know it's closer to the law school and has more graduate students. Campus West is slightly more expensive than UV (I lived in UV my junior year) and you get the same amenities. You're basically paying a premium for the location. University Village is on South Campus so you'd have to either drive to campus or take the shuttle bus. It's also primarily undergrads so it can get loud on weekends if kids are having parties in their apartments.

I can't speak on which one is "nicer" because i haven't been inside a CW apt but University Village was VERY nice. High ceilings, nice furniture, marble counter tops, new appliances, bathroom for every bedroom. But it doesn't look like CW is lacking in any of these areas just from perusing the photos on their website.

Also, check out this site:
http://www.orangehousing.com/

It's a collection of available off-campus housing.


And also check out Campus Hill apartments and University Hill apartments. They're not complexes but they own a lot of apartments near campus.
