But I didn't notice the best part until a few minutes later. I scanned the main letter but it said nothing about scholarship. I saw a small envelope inside the main packet that specifically said "Merit scholarship Award" on the front. They offered me 30K a year, plus free housing in a 1L-only studio apartment dorm my first year! They said the value of the scholarship is over 105K!! I think I have a new number 1 choice :)


Congrats.

I can't believe how many people on TLS get mail early in the day. I am lucky if the mail guy comes by 4 on most days.

+1....what's worse is that mine will come anywhere from 12-4 with no apparent pattern. I have already checked the mail three times today. Fourth time's the charm?

+1 my mail sucks too. Sometimes it will be here by 12 sometimes by 5. Also I find it weird that when I get mail from home (two hours away) it takes 3 days, but when I get mail from Ohio State or Iowa it takes 2. USPS....

Also in at GW via snail mail. 163/3.84, so it was a very welcome acceptance. Easily in the top 2 or 3 of my acceptances thus far.

Edit: After reading the acceptance letter more closely, GW may not be for me... There was a nice handwritten note on the letter, and he signed it with his initials.. Frederick M. Lawrence... So he signed my letter "-FML"... Maybe they are just being honest with the law school experience in general?

Congratulations! I just got the same thing, minus the big envelope. I didn't even know I was admitted yet. Do you have the 3.0 GPA requirement as well?

Now that BC is out for me, GWU becomes my top choice, I think.

Are any of you admits able to log in/ register to the admitted students portal yet?

Yeah, a 3.0 requirement. Now I have a pretty tough choice, because BU offered me 25K a year, and now I have this 30K + 1st year housing offer from GW. Guess I will be going to GW Law to visit pretty soon.
