I really want Wake to be the first school I get in to, been UR since 1/4. Over 75%lsat under 25%gpa. If I got any money it would be hard to turn down Wake.

Here's to hoping for next week tho! :)


Thanks for the info!

I bet you will hear around when I do. Their decisions seem to come in waves and from what I've read here we have a good shot since we applied early. I'll let you know if I hear anything!

oh no! I was really hoping to hear something this week. I really don't think I'll be able to attend the Scholars Open House (if I get a scholarship) since it'd be kinda short notice to plan and budget a trip from TX :(

I think the cut off was higher than that, otherwise I am totally thrilled because I have 163,3.3! lol

Sorry, this may have already been answered, but do we know when Wake is giving out money? I was accepted a while ago, but no word on $$$. Does this mean none is coming? Wake might be my first choice, but not without some cash.

I mean, because you are right at the cutoff, it might not be a lot, but unless the applicant pool has gotten dramatically better, I'd say you stand a decent chance.

I'm not sure a 163/3.0 will get money, but I know that people with 163s and good gpas, as well as people with 165-168 and 3.0s, got money. If I'm not mistaken, no 162s got money, and no one with below a 3.0 got money.

You would think, but from what I've gathered Sandro applied this cycle and no scholarships have been given by Wake yet = ?

Based off last years LSN cycle, the LSAT cutoff for scholarships seems to be 163 (non-URMs). Looks like they gave a few scholarships to sub 3.0 people with LSATs 168+.

Who knows though, the applicant pool may be a good bit smaller than last years, so your guess is as good as mine as to what the cutoffs will be this year. Probably nothing drastically different from last year.
