Anyone else here considering Georgia against Wake because of $$ or just comparing the two in general?

Thoughts?


oh yeah i am. Actually, I haven't heard back from many other higher ranked schools yet. But I have a feeling that for me it is gonna end up being WF (18K/yr) against UGA. It's true what everyone has said, that Athens is a much more lively of a town, and COL if anything is equal to that of WF. For anyone else, this would put UGA on top of WF. But for me, it puts it on equal terms. Because I live in Athens and just finished my ug there in December, and I really would like a change of location. Because, I fear that I would treat law school like I did my ug, meaning downtown every night and thus not paying much attention to studying. Anyhow, if I can hustle WF into giving me 7k/yr more, that would definitely put WF on #1 for me.

Hi everyone! This may have been answered but I can't seem to find it -

Does anyone who went to the Scholar day last week think it is appropriate to bring my mom and boyfriend? I registered for 3 guests, but my mom is cool with just checking out the campus on her own or just participating in the breakfast and intro. What about my boyfriend?

Just looking for some input! Thanks!!

PS - Excited about meeting some of you tomorrow!

I brought my boyfriend, and I definitely saw some parents too. Don't worry they will blend in.

Mine just changed to administrative review as well. I'm thinking it's a good sign. I mean it could have changed to denied.

Same exact thing happened to me. First it updated the date online...then they waitlisted me. I have a lot of other options, so I think I might just withdraw. (161, 3.08, Half South American)

WL via email today. not too disappointed, probably to be expected considering i'm 1 below median LSAT and .01 below median GPA. LOCI it is then.

Waitlisted today. I'm honestly really surprised since a lot of people around my numbers were accepted, and Ms. Nutt didn't seem to think getting i would be an issue when I spoke with her in the fall....

Anyone have advice on what I can do to get myself out of WL Purgatory???

Waitlisted today.

162/3.4

Any idea if and when a lot of people get in off the waitlist?
