Is it possible to withdraw my application even though I haven't even gone IR? I'm just tired of them stringing me out. It didn't cost me anything to apply, and I'm not going to get in...

Yep, just send an email to the admissions office with your LSAC#.

I don't understand the motivations for people withdrawing at this point

- Got ED somewhere else?
- Another school gave you an offer that couldn't conceivably be surpassed by W&M?
- Think this will make a statement to W&M's adcomm?
- Just saying it on TLS to rouse sympathy?

You're the one who paid, at least, $12 for this. You have nothing to lose by waiting, and it's not like withdrawing will "open up a spot" for someone, esp. if your numbers are low.

Did anyone that emailed last week for a scholarship boost get a response yet?

How long did the response take? I emailed the general admissions email six days ago.

about 3 days.
I had already tried once previously, before I had any baragaining power. This time I used a similar sized scholarship from a top40 school. While the total dollar amounts were similar, the other school was going to be a LOT cheaper.

I emailed Tuesday & got a response Friday about military matters but not scholarships. Responded today, reply today. Was told I'd hear from the other dean later this week.

My application was "Complete" on Sep 9 last year, but the status has remained the same ever since then.

Am I put on the waitlist/on hold or what?

p.s. I live outside of the States.

Probably WL

Don't know if you're already aware of this, but for W&M, everyone who isn't accepted gets WLed

I believe I will disprove your theory!

But seriously, they are way too friendly. :|

I'm starting to wonder if there is anything I can do to nudge them along, or if I even should?

..that all non-admits get WLed? Uh.. it's not a theory; it's a well-established fact

Also, W&M's WL is like the no-man's-land vortex of time. You may enter ... but you will never escape

So my current status has been "complete" since Jan. 11th, can anyone tell me why my status hasn't changed? Does this mean they haven't even start the review on my app? I mean shouldn't I get a "review in process" or something similar? I just hate not seeing any updates like you guys...

Yeah just keep waiting. The status checker isn't a great tool for W&M.

I'll be withdrawing, I love William and Mary, but without any scholarship, its just not possible for me to go. I hope one of you gets my spot!

No, since I am at work right now, I didn't exactly have the time to read through ALL 70 pages of the thread. I did read the last 3 pages tho, and most peeps seemed to have some kind of a change on their status checker.
