Did that auto out of office reply perhaps say when they'd be back in the office? :)

Same here! When did they come out last year and what numbers usually got you some money?

Last year scholarship recipients had their status change to "Admitted Scholar" on 1/7 and 1/8 (Thurs/Fri) and then emails were sent 1/12 (Tues) with the scholarship award. So if they follow the same pattern, then our status should change this week and emails next week. Most money went to 164+, but they gave some money to 163 people with high (>3.6) GPAs and to URMS.

After not even getting an email confirming my application until this morning I finally got a status check and am under "Administrative Review" as of 1/6.

Is this the same as going under review ? I didn't email Wake to hold my app until Dec scores, I only did it to schools who I would be complete at before they came out.....

While my LSAT is 4 more than yours, your GPA is like .8 more than mine. :(

LSAC's guide puts me at 35-50% probability and i think LSP put me at 27% with my current LSAT. A 1 point bump puts me from 40-55% on LSAC and 32% and a consider on LSP.

Do I email them and tell them to hold until Dec scores even though I just went UR today?

At this point we'll get the scores before they can make a decision. I'd say wait. Even if we get the scores Monday they still won't have decided on you yet :) ps--I would kill for your LSAT!

Already accepted to Wake but I want to send an updated transcript for scholarship reasons does anyone know how I should do this? Do I go through LSAC or should I just send it directly to the school? and do I include anything with this transcript? thanks!

Either one. Really depends on whether you want all your schools to get it or just Wake.

I feel it. Sholarships are going to come out today.

Not saying I will get one, but I bet somebody does!

I think you are highly optimistic. I'll bet Monday's the first we start hearing about $$.

(But wouldn't it be nice if people started hearing today...)

yeah plus last year people's statuses started changing to "admitted scholar" the Friday before scholarships were sent out on a Tuesday. So hopefully our statuses at least change today! I also emailed Wake to ask about when they expect to send out scholarships so I'll post their reply when I get a response.
