I received an application received email on 11/1 and a completion e-mail on 11/8, neither of which said anything about a status checker. I've searched my inbox and spam folder and I don't have any other emails from them. Anyone know why I wouldn't have a status checker by now?


Hmm I received my status checker the same day as that first email (11/8). Here's what it looked like.

So pretty much like any of the other status checker emails out there. If you haven't gotten this but your application is complete, I would recommend calling. HTH.

In on 11/18 via status checker...admit package mailed. I may receive it today.

Submitted 11/01, went complete 11/08.

Edit: Received the package in the mail today. I've been offered a $10,000 scholarship, renewed annually dependent on maintaining a "C" average. I'm also in-state, so this definitely helps if I decide to attend.

Are you willing to share your numbers?

I just submitted my application yesterday, so I'm just hoping I get this kind of news before Christmas!

Btw, 171/3.5 and 2 years WE.

My numbers aren't overly impressive. Average LSAT (164), great GPA (3.84); however, I have 3 years WE in D.C.

In via status checker. 170/3.4x. 3-4 years WE. Haven't gotten the package yet, so I don't know about $. Even though W&M isn't my top choice, this is my first acceptance so it's nice, although slightly overshadowed by a GULC interview request yesterday.

is w&m relatively easy to get into for a t-30 or can this be a harbinger?


http://www.top-law-schools.com/william- ... f-law.html

TLS calls W&M one of the most selective schools in the country. I suppose this is not necessarily synonomous with highest standards, but I believe the answer to the above question would be no.

Georgewythe22 wrote:Hey all! Congrats! I'm a current 1L! Let me know if you have any questions. As for employment prospects, I've talked to a few people who have worked in Cali and there a couple of graduates from last year who got jobs on the West Coast. Obviously, W&M places better in this area, especially DC, but there are graduates who went all over last year! Most people want to work in DC and I think W&M puts you in a great position to do that. I can't speak to w&l's employment but they are both great schools.


I am SO excited to be in at W&M. Certainly one of my top choices, but I do have a couple questions:
Can you talk about life in Williamsburg?
I am married and my wife wants us to go to Chicago or D.C. Any chance she will be bored?
Also-what did you think about the week of "legal skills" (I think that's what they call it) before school started?
Thanks.


Hey! Congrats all! About Williamsburg, I love it. However, if your wife is looking for a city feel, that's definitely not what you're going to get here. It's very cute and quaint and there is everything you could need here but its very small. However, Richmond and Virginia Beach are only 45 min to an hour away and DC (without traffic) is only 2 1/2 hours.

Also, there are quite a few married couples in my class. They seem to love it here and W&M offers a lot of other master degree programs that some spouses are in. Spouses are also invited to all events that the law school hosts, and often, they come to eat lunch with their husbands/wives.

As for legal skills week, I'm not sure what the new 1L class is going to experience because they are updating the program so it will be different than what I went to. I liked legal skills week because it gave me an opportunity to meet my classmates but I don't know how useful it was. Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions!

Congrats, everyone! Just found my acceptance stashed away. Thanks a lot, husband. Probably arrived 11/19 or 11/20 and status checker hasn't changed. $8k/yr and VA resident. Shocked by the $, which puts W&M in play! So happy!

Edit: Actually, status checker has never shown any status...

I know there's just a few of you, but has everyone who has received their admit packet gotten some type of scholly offer?
I know I will know about my own soon enough, but I am in AZ, just about as far away from W&M as I could be, and very anxious.
Thanks.

wow that's about 6k for law school.

are they more inclined to give bigger schollies to non-residents because of the extra cost?

This makes me pretty anxious for my package to come in the mail, scholly at W&M would definitely put it on my short list. PS, your avatar made me decide to pickup spaghetti and meatballs from the local pizza place for dinner tonight :)

On my application status checker, for "Residency" it states: "App Rep IS-A" - anyone know what this means? May be "In State" something..not sure. Otherwise, I'll just shoot them the question to be sure.

Since you're the first person who has asked about this, do you know if we had to answer that one question on the application to be considered for a fellowship?
