It sounds like this will be the next wave of decisions. Alot of people in this group seem to have high scores (if they are worried about YP!)

I'm still blank. I'm just really hoping to hear by Christmas. That would make the long holiday LS silence a lot more bearable.

I have "Initial Review Complete" as of today as well. I'm retaking the LSAT, but with my current numbers (at LSAT median, above GPA median), W&M is a target school. So I don't think Initial Review Complete gives any indication of YP

I submitted on Tuesday and I haven't gotten any kind of confirmation at all from W&M that they even got my application. I know they're probably inundated with applications this late in the game, but I really didn't have the option of applying much sooner, I was holding out for a decision from TFA and just recently got rejected so that was when I started my apps.

167/3.37 at W&M undergrad/URM (NA)... no idea what to expect

Which of the boxes does this appear in? The status box or the mailings box?

Just to weigh in here, I never had any sort of status for W&M. It remained totally blank even after I was accepted on the 18th/19th. I just checked again and it now says this:

Current Status: May 1 is Deadline to Accept Offer
Current Status Date: 11/29/2010
Decision Status: Initial Review Complete
Decision Status Date: 11/8/2010

My status checker now says initial review complete, but it doesn't say "May 1 is Deadline to Accept Offer." In fact, if I didn't have my admission packet sitting right in front of me, I would probably be freaking out right now.

It's so frustrating! Not that it will be any less so once I get my checker email. I know myself, I'm going to check it obsessively. I'm trying to keep my options as open as possible, but W&M is definitely one of my top choices.

It took a full week and a half before I got the application received. I'm still waiting to hear that my application is complete.

Update: And soon after posting this I went complete.

How long did it take to go from "initial review complete" to an acceptance for other people. Was that by email first or status checker for most people? Thanks!

I'm not sure about the first question. As for the second, a bunch of people received acceptances prior to Thanksgiving via status checker (in the mailings section).

Spoke to soon... Both emails came at the same time about 10 minutes ago. But my status is "File is incomplete" for some reason. Not sure what they're waiting for...

W&M waits for paper copies of the LSAC report. That might be why it's incomplete if you submitted within the past couple of days.

Yea they do everything by paper. When I met with the Dean he had a folder in front of him with all my stuff.

Status Checker.



I don't think it will take a month at this point. I think they are on the verge of new decisons. This is "initial REVIEW complete" not application complete. Any once else who has been accepted remember?
