What time did you get an email about your decision (for folks who already received decisions)?

I received the email notifying me of my acceptance at around 8:15 in the morning. I wonder if scholarships follow this early morning trend? If so (sorry for being a downer) maybe we have the weekend to wait.

Haha I did this same exact check this morning. Let's hope it's a mid-day surprise.

The countdown continues. I am giving up hope if we don't hear something in the next three hours!

Wow. Slow day alone in the office is not helping this wait. I think I am more nervous about this than most of my decisions! (although the W&L "You'll have your answer by 5pm" email did really scare me).

So has it been confirmed that if your congratulations was changed to complete that your probably receiving a scholarship?

I'm not sure. Is there anyone accepted in the first batch who didn't have their status change?

That was the speculation and at least one poster claimed to have confirmed this w/ the admissions office.

I hope it's true, but I would be pretty suprised. There are a few people who in years past would definitely NOT have gotten a scholarship offer from Wake that have had their status change recently. It's not impossible, but it would mean Wake is changing it's scholarship strategy if they start offering scholly's to 161/162 LSAT's who aren't URMs.

While I can't say I have gotten a scholarship yet, my congratulations was changed back to application complete so I really hope this is the case.

You should, tell them you are Lorenzo Von Matterhorn and you need to know about scholarships before you take your hot air balloon on an expedition of the north pole.

So Wake is going to reward our patience by giving us each an extra 5K on our scholarships, right? :wink:

I've been laughing at how silly the speculation about the meaning of the 'congratulations!' disappearance was and then mine disappeared...
