Hope all of you will join me in the fall. :) :) :) :)

I still would love it if everyone attending the openhouse will post pictures and their impression of the school.

:D



What happened to make you decide? That's great news though!!! I will most likely be joining you.


My family got me enough $ for COL and I worked things with Wake on the rest. I am ready to send my seat deposit.



That's awesome! Wake's admissions staff sure has been helpful this cycle.

Can anyone speak to the portability of a WF degree to places like D.C.? Boston? When I tell people I've been accepted into Wake Forest, here in Boston, they are so impressed because of the undergraduate reputation.

I would love to spend three years in NC. I'm going to visit Wake next Friday, and am deciding, currently, between Wake with 18k a year or GMU, where I've yet to hear anything about money. I know in-state residency is difficult in VA so it looks like between cost of attending, and tuition, Wake will be far cheaper.

I just don't want to be tied to NC for five years after graduation.

Thanks.

Congrats Luis!!! What a great birthday present for you. I am about 99% sure I'll be attending too, but will probably wait til I go to the Open House on the 5th. I'll post my thoughts about the school, and any pictures I might take.

The only way at this point I probably won't go is if I check out the school and hate it. But I don't really see that happening.

You inspired me to call... plus, today is my birthday.

I was also told my decision will come via email tomorrow. I hope that is not code for "waitlisted". Good luck to you.

Congrats LG, what a relief it must be to know where you will be heading! I've heard nothing but great things about WF so I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

I don't think that it means that (or hope it doesn't)...I'm above 75% LSAT and pretty close to the 75% GPA

That makes me feel better... when I spoke with Melanie Nutt on campus, I got a very positive vibe from her... I would hope this is an acceptance, but it seems some schools will give you the good news over the phone (if a decision has been made) and let the 'mailings' handle delivery of the bad news.

haha, not Cornell :( Ms. Nutt and the rest of the Wake crew is the nicest admissions people I have come across, so if she sounded positive I'm sure you have nothing to worry about.

Current Status changed to "Application Complete" this morning--doesn't bode too well :? Anyone else get an update yet?

EDITED: Actually, after reviewing the thread, maybe this is a good sign? Here's hoping!!!

Folks went App Complete the day before or morning of the last acceptance batch--not sure if ALL App Completes --> Accepted, but a lot did.

Emails went out around 1pm or so last time, so let's see if they are creatures of habit :)

Congrats to everybody. Can't wait to hear where you all decide to go, and if you choose Wake, getting to know you (since I'm about 99% sure I'll be there come August).
