    @geniusa1a What was in the acceptance package? Is that something more than the two sheets from the financial aid office my son got last week?

    my son was wait-listed a few weeks ago. He just received an email that he was offered to study the first year in paris and transfer the second year. Has anyone heard of this or did this option? anyone else receive this offer?
  • candjsdadcandjsdad Registered User Posts: 210 Junior Member
    @wowed777 We were just at the accepted students day on Monday with my son. There was a student in the Honors Program who talked about having taken a year to study in Paris through GW. She seemed to have loved it. I would guess it is the same program. I wonder if they just have a couple of spots they reserved with the school in Paris that they didn't fill with more senior students, so now they are looking for a way to make good use of the freshmen on the wait list. I'd say its not a bad deal since it lets you skip having to live in Thurston.

    So I'm trying to decide what school to go to next year for poli sci/government. I still have not decided if I wish to do a double with IR or something like that although I am open to it. My options are GWU, UMich, UC Berkeley, Cornell and NYU. I know they are all good programs but I'm just looking for some input anyone might offer in making my decision. I am extremely torn as they all have their pro's and cons and I haven't found
