Just got a phone call from George Mason, but was unable to answer it as I am at work. They did not leave a message. Googled the phone number and it was from GM's Assistant Dean of Admissions. If they call me again at work, I don't think I will be able to answer. Has anyone received their admission via voicemail? Will they leave a message if they can't get a hold of me at work?

I had also missed the call from GMU without voicemail, despite others getting the acceptance through message, but received the acceptance in the mail 2 days later. No need to fret, you got it! :D

I am in the same boat, I like in Arizona and it is 75 degrees right now! But I figure the 27th is the best date for me plus, it is my first experience with the D.C. winters so I have an idea what to expect (and what clothes to buy!).

Sweater, jean, and a jacket will be fine.

Or you could spend the next week or so in the gym 24/7 and build yourself into Arnold II so you can show up in tank tops.

If I do that I will have to practice my Arnold II accent so I can call people "girly-men" properly :wink:

Further, you should watch out for this really annoying Virgina car tax: for every $100 worth, they will tax $4.57 out of you. So if you drive a Beemer or Mercedes, its bad news for you. Unless you get a job as a police officer, in that case, the car tax is waived.


So, is it safe to say that if I were to move to VA next month, work in DC until July, and fulfill all the other requirements, I could get in-state tuition starting my 2L year?


The typical thing I've heard is that you need to have worked in VA 1year+ BEFORE starting law school. You might be able to get in other ways, but thats the easiest slam dunk way to do it.

Nope they are correct and I was a bit surprised also re: top of my class in econ...kinda makes me think they're not very holistic with their approach to admission due to my 163 lsat. (look at the LSN chart there is a very visible 164 or 3.8 ugpa barrier to entry unless URM) Oh well

I was shocked because i was expecting your USMC credentials and your honors in economics to carry u over the 164 cutoff mark. I guess military soft didn't kick with GMU law admissions.

Has anyone heard anything about scholarships yet? I know they said late February so I am hoping we will hear something soon.

Nothing about Financial Aid. In this tough time, don't expect much.

I'm not sure how accurate this is. I am below 164, JUST below 3.8, but I'm not a URM and I still got in (nothing overly spectacular about my application/resume either). That leads me to believe they at least somewhat have a holistic view.

Just my opinion, though.

Does anyone know if George Mason reimburses or otherwise provides stipend for travel to admitted students day(s)? My packet is at home and I can't seem to find any info on this.

Yeah I know George Mason is known for not giving out much in scholarships anyways but every little bit would definitely help.

I emailed Ms. Price about a week ago and she said unfortunately they are unable to reimburse for travel expenses.
