Not sure there is a real answer to that question. I know someone that applied a few years ago about 2 days before the deadline who was waitlisted and then accepted. Don't remember exact numbers, but nothing spectacular.

It really depends on who keeps their offers, who hangs out on the Wait list, and how you stack up to them. Obviously this is not a very revolutionary statement.

If you are serious about getting off the wait list I'd say make sure you don't fall out of touch with the admissions office.

good luck, I feel like that is what it will take for some of us to make it off the wait list

Just got in VIA e-mail also. pretty excited. Do you guys know how long admitted people generally have to wait to see if they get a scholarship or not? Someone said "awhile" can you clarify a little bit?


also really interested in this


None of the admits from 1/31 have received scholly info. (correct me if I am wrong)

I know this has probably been discussed at length somewhere in these 50 pages but what's Wake's scholarships like? My grads are at/slightly above their median; just curious if, since they are a private institution, they are generous with scholly's?

I am going to the March 18th ASD. :-)

RelientKate: Congrats on getting in! Will you attend regardless of scholly money? I know you had chosen Wake because of your husband's military orders.

Did everyone who got scholly $ find out about it in their admission letter?? Did it come later?
I'm holding out hope that WFU is gonna offer me something.

Pretty sure everyone got a separate email with scholly info.

At the undergraduate level, most certainly. I don't know how much of that is true at the law school level.

In via email yesterday. 170/3.1

My acceptance email said that if I were to receive a scholarship, the information would come in a separate email.

I just read the thread seems scholarships are decent. I need about 20/year to make Wake a viable option.

It depends :( I want to, but I got a pretty good scholarship to Penn State, and I'm going to have to live far away from him anyway...

Yeah, I understand that. But, weekend trips from NC to SC are much more doable than PA to SC....

I mean, if Wake doesn't give you any money, I can see how going to Penn State would be the smartest option...but if they do give you money...GO WAKE! :-)

Where do you want to practice after graduation?

East Coast, preferably Virginia/NC. How about you? And yeah, if Wake throws some moolah my way, it's definitely Demon Deacons, all the way.

Well, ideally, I would love to work in Northern VA/DC. That is really more because my husband wants to do secret service. I don't really have a preference (as long as it is on the east coast).

I went to Wake for undergrad, and have a ton of friends from the law school who live/work in the DC area, so I think those jobs are definitely available to Wake Law grads.
