    @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

    Could someone who has attended admitted students day give me the itinerary for the day? What time does it start? We messed up and did not register fast enough and there are no spots left. Going to attend anyway and want to make sure we go to the right place at the right time. Hope it works out and we don't get booted out. Thanks in advance!

    When my son attended a few years ago they had an app with the schedule for the day, I think it was 'inside GW' at the App Store.

    @FirstKid2College Ours started at 8am in the Smith Center. The first thing my son had to do was to get in line and register. I don't know if the list they had was of all admitted students, or just the ones scheduled to attend that day.

    @candjsdad thank you. I'm wondering if I should avoid that line or just admit we didn't register in time. Think they'd turn us away? Did they provide you with any parking info?

    @FirstKid2College - They hand out lanyards with names and some other info for students, and stickers for parents. That is what is supposed to help them identify who is with the group for transportation, food, etc. I think you should probably just admit what happened. They may not have food for you, but I would think they would still let you in the initial meetings, which were helpful, and they should still let you take the shuttle up to the Mount Vernon campus.

    We live in DC, so we took the Metro to the event.. I doubt they provide discounted parking, because there just isn't much to be had. There are a number of city lots around, you just have to look for them. They shouldn't be full before 8am. You'll pay somewhere around $20-40 for the day. I don't park downtown much.

    I went to the final look tour and you have to check in with the admissions center. They will ask for the student's name to check if you signed up for the tour or not.

    I was just wondering if any students placed on the wait list have heard anything. My son submitted additional documents per the form they emailed out. I was wondering if they have contacted anyone to admit them?

    @Karen4474 I haven't, although I called and they confirmed that they are not doing call-ins for waitlisted students this year.

    I was just contacted today and taken off the waitlist!

    Did anyone on the waitlist hear anything? I'm still considered waitlisted and GW is my top choice. :/
