Does anyone know if it's possible to find their salary data anywhere? Should I be worried that it's not public?

I am trying to decide between GW and Fordham and I can't really compare without this data

How was the admitted students day, especially in comparison to other events you've been to? I was up at BU and BC for the weekend, so I couldn't make it down to GW in time.

Went on a tour today. I was really impressed overall. Was a little nervous because my tour guide didn't really know a lot about OCI and wasn't really interested in pursuing a career in the fields I am interested in so she wasn't super helpful in that department. Sat in on a class and was really impressed by the professor and the class was really interesting. Will be submitting another LOCI to hopefully get in. Worth visiting if you can.

I was also deciding between the two. but ultimately, it depends on where you want to end up.

Just received email response to my scholarship negotiation form that I sent in on Monday
went from 0 to 30 grand total. Not a lot but not nothing, better than potentially paying sticker price i suppose

Withdrew today. I had a higher offer from BU which is better ranked. They wouldn't play ball so it made my decision easy.

Does anyone know if GW allows you to double deposit? I can't find anything saying you CANNOT, but it makes me nervous. I like to have something writing saying you CAN.

Don't think it's an issue anywhere on a first deposit.

I think ndls cares about first deposit but not sure about others

Employment numbers up for 2016 - https://www.law.gwu.edu/sites/www.law.g ... f-2016.pdf

Almost identical biglaw placements as last year. Creditable given the class size increased by about 90. But then, there was no reason to increase the class size except wanting more tuition money.

For seat deposits do you just pay the $500.00 on the online portal by the 15th? Or do you need to indicate anywhere else you've done something for the deposti? Also got $30k a year from having nothing after negotiating so that was nice of them :D :D Good luck to anyone still waiting to hear back from negotiations.

Did you just submit the form once or did you keep negotiating? I could only get them up by 5 a year. Wish I'd have heard this sooner, probably too late now to negotiate again

First week of March


I only submitted once and to be honest didn't have any peer offerings (full ride at t2/t3 schools in NY and just acceptances to instate florida schools(FSU,UF UM)), but I will say I made it clear to them that with scholarship they are my choice school but the cost of attending there vs. in-state tuition at top tier Florida schools would hold me back. Submitted the form early march heard back from them late march. I am working on bringing about more negotiations by negotiating more with in state schools though but I'm not sure if someone on here can advise with going about a second or multiple negotiations.

Withdrew. Sorry GW....you would have been an amazing adventure but your costs were just too much to take on.

Good luck to those who have committed!

Also withdrew 90K. Very sad to say goodbye!
