Could be. The offer window is open now though. So who knows when each journal will make offers in the 9th-11th time period.

Tag. Calls are supposedly going out from the 9th - 11th. Would assume LR is today, the rest to follow.

I think LR calls go out last although that certainly could be incorrect. LR you have to accept on the spot and so they want you to know what other offers you have as the other journals can stay open for a few days. At least that was my impression, feel free to correct me.

not exactly - its not clear from their website but generally if you receive honors as a wilkinson scholar then you are one of the top 15 people in the class, & i believe that the top 28 or so gpa's grade on - and based on my designation, top 15 is at least 3.7

None and I'm just below Wilkinson (if Wilkinson is 3.7ish). Based on GPA Calc. Est. I'm between 5-6%...with SD I am best 18th out of 477, worst 34 out of 477. So good chance for grade on...haven't heard anything.

Hey guys - just heard from a source I trust that LR offers will go out tonight, other journals tomorrow. I know it's a second-hand source, but I'm going with it.
Best of luck, all!

I applied to all the journals, and got the ILJ offer last night. Does that mean I won't get any other offers?

Was hoping for Urban.
