Mine had incomplete listed but between 2-5 PM today went from incomplete (x/x/xx) -> blank.

Anyone else?

Just visited the law school today. Let me know if you have any questions and I can try to answer them.

I was planning on negotiating a bigger scholly, and before I even brough it up in my meeting, the Dean told me it was worth a try (especially if I got higher grades last semester, which I did). She basically implied that scholarship amounts are largely based on GPA, so if you got a good GPA last semester you may want to consider sending a new transcript if you're trying to negotiate.

How are you going to go about negotiating with W&M with your new transcript in tow? Will you just write them a letter (or e-mail?)? What would you say?

I'm kinda clueless about the whole negotiating thing.

Yep. Gonna email the financial aid person with my other offers, let her know a new transcript is in the mail, and keep my fingers crossed. If you want me to PM you the exact email I write (when I write it) let me know.

For those of you who still haven't been accepted who feel like you interview well, I'd definitely suggest scheduling a visit. You can choose from three option for your visit, a tour, a meeting with an admissions dean, and a 1L class. I did all three, and the meeting with the dean was basically an interview (in a good way) even though I was already accepted. If it's financially/logistically possible, I'd definitely suggest trying to visit and express your interest in W&M at your meeting, it might give you the extra nudge you need.

I just spoke with admissions, the fellowships that you apply for with an optional essay are different from the out-of-state scholarships that have been offered. Decisions on the application fellowships will not be made until March.

I was accepted today! :D Found out via online status checker, and will be getting a nice, plump package in the mail pretty soon. Very pleasantly surprised, as I submitted my app on 01/03, and went complete on 01/11. I expected to start getting decisions around late March/early April, considering how late I applied.

FTFM

Congrats! I just checked all my status checkers and was surprised to see "Congratulations! Admit Packet Mailed" in the Mailing field.

My numbers are 3.82 and 164. The eight day turn-around from my app going complete to acceptance is really odd, considering that people who applied way back in the fall still haven't heard back. I thought apps were evaluated in the order of when they went complete?

They hold a large percentage of their applications and don't give a decision until March.

I think heavenwood summed it up best a few pages ago.

MOST will not get a decision before March, because MOST applicants will be waitlisted or rejected (W&M has a sub-20% acceptance rate). With the exception of those on the cusp, the vast majority of accepted students will receive their offers of admission well before then.

Congrats! Posts like these make me rush off to check my own status... even though I just checked it 5 mins ago. :oops:
