My status is pending too. Does that mean we hear from them soon? I've been complete since early November. ugh.

Who knows... waitlisted or rejection I assume? For some reason I find "pending" to be ominous.

I've been pending since November as well and feel like I have a pretty good shot at getting accepted. It's frustrating.

My status is pending. I called and was told that it just meant held. They don't have a waitlist yet iirc.

Emailed Claude to ask about changing my scholarship stipulation. I'll let everyone know how it goes since I know a few of you are also going to try your luck negotiating.

Gutsy. Best of luck with it, what are you trying to get it changed to, and is there any reason you aren't holding back till when they get closer to the numbers crunch of needing x many 167 plus LSATS to make that their 75th percentile?

I'm just getting antsy about making a decision. I know it's super early, but I just hate waiting any longer. As soon as I find out if I got anything at UMN I'm going to try to get more from W&M as well, even though it's early in the cycle.

I left it kind of open-ended, but I told them my other three stipulations from other schools (W&L 3.15, W&M 2.0, and Wake Forest none). I heard their 1L grading curve is a 3.2 median, so if that's accurate even a 3.15 would be easier to meet than top 40%.

Claude emailed me back and said she's forwarding my request to the Scholarship Committee. *fingers crossed*

Wait...so "pending" on the status checker means a waitlist/"hold"? Hmm..kinda surprising. People with similar numbers as I have gotten in with decent money...

I shot them an email yesterday to negotiate for more scholarship money. Let's see what happens.

In today with a call. I am guessing no scholly, because it is contingent on me attending starting this summer...

I'm still pending. Should I be worried? I thought a 3.6/166 would have a pretty good shot with this school, but I've been pending since early November. Any thoughts?

you're probably right on that assumption. It sounds like they're letting everybody know about the scholarships during the initial phone call. Congrats on the acceptance.

Have you sent a LOCI? May be worthwhile.

Are you supposed to if you are held?

Didn't think so but not exactly sure. I was curious because I'm "pending"
