Where would folks here go if they had to decide between GW and BU if they want big law, don't care about the specific market/location, and are given a little bit more money by GW (not much but not a totally insignificant amount either). Asking for a friend... :) And I know big law isn't a guarantee at either of those schools.
when does financial aid dropped? Concerned I haven't gotten a dime offered yet

@LawSchoolTripper: I don't think anyone has received an offer yet. All we know is that they should release them by March 1
Thanks TemporaryHeartbreakingChihauhua!

I just got the email for merit scholarship!
TremendousAuspiciousUrchin
12:43
Any ideas about next wave?
StaleHarshMayfly
12:57
@Nightingale4: so did i, unfortunately not as much as i was hoping for.
8888887777776t6t
13:09
@Nightingale4: same here. More than I got from BU, so that's nice. It feels the amount more or less varies in lockstep with LSAT score.

does gw do waves every other wednesday?

its frustrating to see past year's admits receiving 50%+ more merit scholarship than I just did with worse hard stats :/
TemporaryHeartbreakingChihuahua
16:15
When do we think the next wave of scholarships will be sent?
8888887777776t6t

Given what I got from both BU and GWU, and given my goals, it would seem kind of idiotic of me to take GWU. So, I'll probably withdraw pretty soon. The only thing keeping me from doing so now is that I do find the prospect of getting federal government connections by being in DC somewhat alluring.

On the other hand, I've never been very good at networking, so I don't know how successful I'd be in establishing such connections.

you can call and ask if anything's been llocated to you yet!
Is it weird that my app still doesn't say complete?
babybunny
16:38

babybunny
16:40

16:40

babybunny
16:43

Is there a difference between Hold and WL at GW?
18:42
Status change email but no status change lol
20:05
@BootsTheHaus: I went from hold to A rather quickly

@BootsTheHaus: I don't think it's the same as a waitlist
