I live in DC and would like to stay here so I'm hoping either GW comes through with $$ for me or GULC lets me in. Still not sure how I'd feel about GULC at sticker over GW with $$, but that would be a nice decision to have to make at this point. Applied to GULC, GW, ND, NW, Duke, Cornell, UVA, Vandy, WUSTL, BC, American, Columbia, and UT. Not even sure why anymore, but figured it'd be good to have options - esp if one of the reaches works out.


Good list! I know how you feel about it being nice to be able to make the decision, instead of it being made for you, ha! As far as reaches, I'm still a little sad I didn't apply to UT because I would love to live in Austin. Any idea what type of law you want to pursue?

I don't think its too late. I also got a waiver (both solicited and unsolicited) - might be worth a free app if you're interested in Austin. Not completely sure what specific area of law I'd like to practice yet, but I'd like to be on the litigation side of things.

uncreative, are you looking at PT? I live in DC too and will be going to either GW or GULC (if I get in). I'm also interested in litigation, with a focus on energy/environmental.

FT. I've been out of school for over 10 years and have had a pretty successful career. Its going to be weird completely abandoning that to be a full time student.

Haha yeah - well good luck! I think it'd be weird to me, too (only 4 years out) but your experience will help you in school.

You too! Have you figured out what you'd choose between GULC at sticker or GW at half price?

Nope - have to get in to GULC first before I ponder that very difficult first world problem :)

They're really blowing past all the precedents set the past few years in terms of decision times. Don't really know when to expect it at this point!

Applied 1/15/14

Status checker says "Decision Made" as of today.

Waiting on the email now...If it takes the ten business days they say to allow for, I'll be pissed.

Have a good weekend!

I have no idea! I really hope they send a response tomorrow even though it's Saturday. I have my interview with Georgetown in the morning. I don't want to be anxious about this too!
