So, I'm inclined to believe that the writing disappearing = waitlist/deny

Infinite sad face.


Stats?


3.7ish, 166--URM. Other circumstances might make me less appealing to WUSTL--I'm from St. Louis, went to a university in the area that they don't respect, etc.


What does 3.7ish mean? If you are a URM above one median and close to another I have to think you'll get in.

So is the consensus that no writing = wl/rejection?

You'd think that, but such is not always the case. Ah, and 3.7ish=3.7+/-.04

Okay tea leaf readers - my writing is still there, and my stats are god awful, as was discussed yesterday in this thread - at length. I woulnd't panic just yet.If anything, and I don't know that it does mean anything, I'd guess acceptance or wait list. Since mine didn't change, and as was explained, my stats suck! :P

I have no writing either. But I would guess that I'm headed for a waitlist as I'm an extreme reverse splitter. First went under review in mid-Feb and latest update was to 3/8.

But you see, near-numbers twin, my writing has disappeared, so I don't know what to take from it.

Why are people over analyzing the lack of writing on a status checker?

fwiw, writing still present, UR since 3/11

I know, I know. I'm confused too. One thing I'll say- I still find it extremely unlikely that I'll find anything other than a rejection in my inbox.

The enormous Washington University Law on my status checker looks slightly smaller today. Does this mean a Rejection?

I no longer care about WUSTL at this point. I'm just hangin' out to get my money's worth on the app fee.

Mine is still enormous, but the other writing is gone. I predict full ride + stipend + downtown penthouse.

Don't forget to ask for the chauffeur from said penthouse to campus. One wouldn't want to have to drive themselves.

That last sentence was rather crass. I'm glad you corrected that hooligan, old chap.

I'm retiring to the library for brandy and cigars, feel free to join me at your leisure.

Deepest apologies to all. I was dictating and Geoffrey made the glaring and most embarrassing mistakes. He's fired. I'll be hiring new help after I get back from the Springs this weekend.
