+1. W&L would be by far my first choice so far if I got some $. Only way it would change is if I somehow miraculously got into Boalt.

+1 I think I'm almost as nervous as when I got the "your decision will be posted by 5" email.

I was just thinking the same thing!! I love that W&L keeps us very informed, but now I have a focused date to be nervous about as opposed to just a general "La de da hopefully scholarships will come out soon" feeling.

Best of luck to you. Last year it seemed that applicants with your numbers (161/3.9) got shut out.

Exactly. It helps, in some ways, knowing what you're waiting for, instead of just waiting. I'm hoping for good news for all of us!

Since they said it's the "first round" was that email only sent to people who are getting a letter send 1/14? Or are they going to send letters out for the next couple weeks and I'll have to check my POB every day? Please send me money!

Anyone else wish that all law schools admissions were as quick and efficient as W&L?

I was just accepted. So excited, it's my first acceptance (first response of any kind, actually). Can't wait for the snail mail letter.

160/3.7 with a waitlist. I'm actually pretty ecstatic to be waitlisted. :)

Anything in particular you did to get off the waitlist so early?

Nope. I didn't send an LOCI or visit on the waitlist visit day. I think they just needed reverse splitters.

More schools need reverse splitters.
