In addition, I've only been waitlisted at UNC, which I know is about 1000 people long, so Wake is pretty much my last best hope.
I guess to put my long questions another way, what do you think the likelihood is of a mass of people either backing out or not sending in there deposits per the June 15th deadline?? Especially considering its already mid-May??
I'll be withdrawing by the end of this week once finals are over, most likely, so there is one spot open at least.
Wow...just out of curiousity, what was the deciding factor in your case??
I visited Wake Forest, checked out Winston-Salem, drove out to Charlotte for a day, and loved it. Then I decided to go to Iowa
Honestly, what really did it for me is the region. I've lived in the Midwest my entire life, and when I actually made that 10 hour drive out to North Carolina, it really hit me how far away I would be moving from everything and everyone I have ever known. I deposited at Wake Forest after I received a scholarship thinking there was no way I was going to turn the offer down, but the idea of being tied to a region I have never even been to for more than 2 days just seemed wild. It would be one thing if it was just three years and if I wanted to come back to Chicago it wouldn't be a problem, but chances are you are going to be working in North Carolina after you graduate from Wake Forest. I just couldn't commit to that, even with the scholarship.
I have almost no complaints about the Wake Forest College of Law. The admissions office has been unbelievably kind and helpful, and the students I interacted with there were very friendly. The campus is beautiful, and Winston-Salem is, for the most part, a pretty nice city. Any prospective law student would be lucky to attend Wake, and I wish all you guys good luck. I have no doubt you will all be happy with your decision if you choose Wake.
