I've also received a $10,000 scholarship offer. I realize that the USNWR scores have dropped considerably which makes me sad. However, applying ED to American wasn't on a whim nor was it something I did without extensive research. I did my MA in International Relations and have never wanted to go into big law always international or PI. I know people will say I'm being stupid to go to American and I guess only time will tell. I hope, however, that there are those who have attended or are currently attending that have something positive to say about the school? If so it'd be great to hear those thoughts. Also, I'm currently starting the daunting search for housing so if there are any tips on that as well, I'd really appreciate it.
Ive toured the school and I get where you are coming from.
I do not know if I would have ED'd...but there is nothing wrong with your decision as long as you know you have a high hill to climb to get there.
