Appreciate the withdrawal, congrats on NYU!

I haven't seen anyone here report so yet. We're at just about the 4 week mark for the "4 to 6 weeks" they suggested in the defferal letter, so let's hope we start seeing something soon.

Also, congrats to the admits!

Yep! It all came together in the big packet they sent me; there's a separate envelope for the scholarship in the packet.

In today with letter marked February 5th and a handwritten note mentioning some specifics about my work experience/volunteerism (nice touch). No scholarship info though; probably since I'm a reverse splitter. Glad to be on board though!

I'm making a drive down to DC tonight to check out GW tomorrow!! If people want, I will report back with what I see (for those of you who have never seen the campus or anything). Pretty excited to make my first trip to a school I actually might attend.

*raises hand*

It is pretty much the perfect school for me (outside of Berkeley/Stanford)... I want to end up in the Maryland/Delaware/DC area, I want to go into Intellectual Property (GW is #3 in the country behind Cal/Stanford), and I would like to go to a school that has some upper-level of academic prestige. GW fits the bill to a T.... I may be one of the stupid ones who go there at sticker... Here's to some good need-based aid!

I would love to go to GW, but I really can't consider the 70K a year there over 30K at W & M.

I think GW places better in DC, but not crazily better, and 120K is a big difference.

If I had some money, on the other hand.....

Edited for inability to add (see below).

I think GW places better in DC, but not crazily better, and 90K is a big difference.

(70-30) x 3 = 120

gahhhh. My decision is now made harder... I had 30k total at UIUC, but now I just received 36k total from Ohio State. C'mon GW, SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!!! Please? I love you most (I can't wait to spend Valentines Day with you this weekend).

+1
Tuition only I have: 48K at GW, 15K at W&M, 4K at W&L, 10K at Illinois as my top four choices right now. I just can't justify GW with those other options.

4k at W&L? Jesus Christ what are you waiting for? I'd take that in a heart beat.

Don't get me wrong, I like W&L, but I like GW (and Fordham) more and I think that their reputations in their cities are traditionally better. W&L is probably fourth (after GULC, GW, W&M) on the DC school pecking order, not to mention T14s.
