Not yet, but I plan to. I'm waiting to see if I get any other good offers I can use as leverage. Let me know if you try how it goes!

I will! I'm trying to decide if I should wait to hear from Emory/vandy and send them one email, or try now and negotiate with my other offer.

Congrats!!! :D I didn't get an email until like 2 days later. I'm sure the scholarship information has already been sent. Both my acceptance and scholarship information came in the same envelope. :D

Add me to that group. I figure at this point the "your application is being reviewed" note means I've been tossed into the recycling bin.

I attempted to negotiate scholarship based on a T14 acceptance and some other comparable scholarships from peer schools. Got back a personalized message that it was still too early but that they'd look into it more down the road and get back to me.

I just saw this article today about UGA on Above The Law blog. Looks like the Career Office has some complaints it is dealing with. Anyone know more about it?

I was just about to post this. I know there is good data for us to look at when making decisions, but this makes me feel really uneasy.

This could be anecdotal. I think it's in all of our best interests to do some of our own research with an open mind to see what it's really like you know?

If you go to ATL and check the rankings. Every alumni/student review of any >T14 mentions a poor CSO. Just the way it is.

Yeah, even though its anecdotal, I have talked to several recent alum and they all say it sucks.

I also tried to negotiate and they told me the same thing. They said that they are still giving out initial offers and would look at increasing offers closer to the seat deposit deadline. I have been impressed with their admissions office so far, I received a response the day after I sent the first negotiation e-mail.

^ This exactly. It was maybe a week or 10 days ago that I sent the email and heard back immediately (one day or so) afterwards.
