Have you read this thread? Where did you get the idea anyone else got updates?


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


Thanks ukgrad for the constructive response.



Still complete on 1/12/2011. Expecting a Waitlist. A bit shocked to be honest.

Heard back on increased scholarship request yesterday. They offered me another $3,000 a year for a total of $18,000 a year.

Got mine increased to $20,000 a year as well. Definitely worth dropping them an email!

Did you guys who negotiated better offers have $$ from equal/higher schools?

I brought up my two best offers - Minnesota ($35k/year) and Alabama ($24k/year). Got me from $4k to $10k.

I went from $10k to $20k with my Duke admit and W&L full-ride (which was all I had at the time in early January).

Hey all just checking in. I haven't looked at any of the past 71 pages, so I apologize if this has been asked, but, I'm at "Complete 1/12". Sent in my application late November. LSAT above 75th. GPA a tiny bit under median.

WHYYYYYYYYYYYY W&M??????

Might have something to do with that avatar you're using. That thing is creeping me out!

I have similar dates to a few people here, received 1/28, complete 2/2. I seems like some of you in this batch got a quick turnaround though and I haven't heard anything. Any clue of an approximate wait time?

There isn't one. Some people had a 2 day turnaround, I'm still complete 11/12. Pull up a chair and grab a book.

I think W&M is pretty holistic? I got in pretty early while I haven't heard back/rejected/waitlisted by similarly ranked schools.

At least I like to think they are because the like me for me. I enjoy the attention, even if it is my own fabrication.. :cry:

167/3.75 13K Graduate Fellowship + 4k Stipend + 15k Scholarship, 32k/yr. Waiting on BU and BC, but this will likely be my best offer.

I believe the GF is $9k (to make up the diff. b/w OOS and IS tuitions) + a $4k stipend

Which fellowship? Do you know if most fellowship offers have been made?

I was just admitted to BU with a 163/3.96 - you should be hearing soon because their first admitted students day is March 4th; Still have yet to hear from W&M which is REALLY disappointing considering I submitted my app in early November - probably not a good sign... :( I also submitted a late application to U of V and had a WL response within a month which makes not hearing from W&M even more disheartening.

Yeah, just FYI, it's only 28k per year because the stipend is party of the graduate fellowship.

That's strange about W&M because they have really quick turnaround time from my experience (submitted 1/8 -> decision 1/16) and what I've heard from others. Maybe drop them an e-mail I wonder if something happened with your app.

The fellowship is the Grad Fellowship they give to out of state people to reduce the tuition down to the in-state level in exchange for 8hrs/wk of work in the library or administration apparently. Its based only on merit and is distinct from those other ones (technology, e.g.) that they request essays for. I didn't apply for those so I havent been involved in the process and don't really know if those offers have been made or not.

Thanks for the heads up about BU by the way, friend.
