First acceptance!


Pretty much the same. 3.75/166. I also wrote the election law fellowship essay. I'm not sure it's my top choice, but it's definitely a place I could see myself at next year. Definitely excited to get the package in a few days.

Congrats to all those accepted!!

Only sucky thing is I am also a 11/12 complete so that means they need more time with mine. Can be a good thing. But also could be a bad thing.

William and Mary doesn't waitlist, they pretty much just never give a decision until March. If you've been complete for a long time and haven't heard anything, it's probably not a good thing. There's probably more decisions coming out pretty soon though, so don't lose faith.


Aren't you contradicting yourself? You are saying the they pretty much never given a decision until March, then you say if you have been complete for a long time and haven't heard anything it's not a good sign.
Well if most decisions are made in March, don't we all know that March is several months away? Or are you trying to say that all the acceptances go out now and the all the rejections wait until March? Please clarify

If you look at the TLS decision date graphs, it shows a lot of green (acceptances in the beginning) and a lot of waitlists in March...

So yes, it is not necessarily a good thing to be complete for a long time based on last year.

Starting to agree. i looked at this year and last and noticed that the majority of those accepted heard within 2 weeks of going complete, with a couple of exceptions.
I have been complete since 11/8 and no word yet, so I guess it's not a good sign.
but a batch of people heard today (according to those on this board), and there were rejections and Waitlisted people. I am still waiting, and getting depressed

Depends on your numbers. If you're a clear admit, you'll probably hear back within a month. If you're at or below the medians, you might not hear back until March.

Complete 11/2 and no email... looks like a WL/ding. 3.1/167 OOS. I knew it was a long shot, oh well!

I wouldn't necessarily assume you are a WL or ding. Many people who were accepted had complete dates before 11/12. They take longer for some people, I guess. I'm also 11/12 and it is disheartening to know that we weren't part of the rest of the 11/12 pack.

But I don't care how long it takes a law school to decide on me, as long as they decide to ACCEPT me lol. :)

In yesterday (12/2) - still says "initial review complete" but it says "Admit Packet Mailed" on the mailings part. Now I just have to wait for it to come!

161/3.9x (but I think LSAC says my GPA is a little lower than it really is). NonURM, still in undergrad.

Honestly, I'm kind of surprised I was admitted.. but excited!

good luck to all!

status checker changed to "initial review complete." this doesn't mean my acceptance and scholarship was revoked, right?

Mine reverted to the same (after being accepted w/ $$). Pretty sure the offer's revoked - tough break

Wow...what would be the reason for this?

I applied on Friday around 4pm. I hope to go complete here in the near future...
