Hey everyone,

I am currently struggling to make the decision between Wake Forest Law and William and Mary Law. Since I am across the country I am not able to travel and visit these colleges and would greatly appreciate any advice about these two law schools, pros and cons. For me they are financially equal, have great programs and I am flexible to living in small town or city. Any information would help. THANKS!

Right now W&M is my top prospect, but I'm still waiting to hear back from my first choice school (UT) and waiting on financial info from Colorado. We'll see! William & Mary was my first choice for undergrad (though I eventually decided to stay in-state in NJ,) so it'll be a little funny if I end up here for law school!

W&M is in my top 2 with Minnesota. George Washington could also factor in if I get money from them(doesn't look like it at this point, but the last round is still a possibility). Will be visiting W&M next Friday..I'm excited!

I feel the decision is going to be really hard...I suck at decisions :P

W&M just got a huge boost in the rankings, up 9 spots to #24! That's massive!

Anyone know of a FB group or other social networking opportunity for the ℅ 2017? I'm at about 99% now, just want to wait until after ASW before putting down a seat deposit.

I was seriously considering GW, but it's just too much $$$. W+M has given me a decent scholarship, and it's a great school.... I still have some time to consider it, but it's looking better and better! What are people doing for housing? Also, do most students have cars?

The boost in the rankings doesn't hurt, either.

I believe you get access to the FB group when you put in your seat deposit and get your WM email account.

W&M is for sure in my top 2. Right now it's simply a question of scholarship offers and total COA. Where are people ITT hoping to practice? Is the consensus that W&M is mid-atlantic or bust or does it have some portability into, say, DC and/or New England?

That's the same boat I am in. Technically GW could still give me a scholarship(probably by tomorrow...and if not I could still request, but the likelihood goes down). I'd love that..but it probably won't happen. I'm seeing W&M tomorrow..hope I love it!

I believe it has SOME portability into DC, though probably not something you should count on. Though that is an important factor for me too.

I'm hoping to do PI/Government, which this school has a better LST score with than my other top school(though part of this is inflated due to law school funded positions..I wish we had numbers about how these people did a year after the fact(when their fellowships ended). I could see it going either way...

Anyways, I just visited Friday. Beautiful school.

I'm going to visit the campus in April. The photos look quite stunning.

Considering W&M alongside some other schools. I'd be paying sticker at my other 2 choices, and W&M has given me a decent scholarship, so I'll most likely be in Williamsburg next fall!

Has anyone had luck negotiating aid? I sent an email to one of the deans, and received a polite but disappointing response that I was "under consideration" if more money becomes available.

Hey there. I posted in the W&M applicants thread about this. I tried to negotiate with them for more merit aid and I got the exact same response. That I am the list for further consideration as more money becomes available. I know their deposit deadline is May 1st so maybe, for them, it's still too early in the cycle?

I'm try to figure out how easy/difficult it is to qualify for VA residency for 2nd and 3rd year tuition purposes. I think W&M pro-rates their scholly offers if you get VA residency.

The campus is stunning. The surrounding area is historic. Great access to VA Beach, York and James River and beaches along the Colonial Parkway, Busch Gardens and Water Country USA just outside of town. Amtrak train access from city to East Coast. Fare only $64 one way advance to NYC. Idyllic. Very safe. CIA installation just outside of city. High Governmental security due to visits from international diplomats and us Presidents.

I'm between W&M and wake. When I visited, it was SWAMPED with tourists. Also, does anyone know of apartments that have 1:1s that don't cost over a grand a month?
