I'm not much of a drinker and, for the most part, I hate hard alcohol as I think it tastes like ass. I love beer and wine, but nothing else. I have, however, found out that brandy is distilled wine, and it is tradionally enjoyed in a glass called a snifter, so I'm eager to head to the store tonight and get me some brandy and a few snifters. Because, how cool does "snifter" sound?

I prefer single-malt scotch, but to each his own ;).

What you mean to say, in case an adcom is reading this, is that you prefer Diesels (Bud in a can) drank while still on the stringer.

What does it mean if you haven't changed in 4 months, and are above that 168 wall everyone talks about? Is there a chance my app was lost?

It means that there is no order to the chaos whatsoever. I feel like that has been firmly established across the board (except at Stanford and Chicago). If you haven't changed in four months, a calm phone call to the admissions office is entirely warranted. Just say that your status hasn't been updated in four months and that with seat deposits coming up, you just want to make sure that your application is still in consideration, et cetera.

Has WUSTL said something to the effect of "all regular decisions will be made by x" ? I owe a seat deposit to another school in two weeks and haven't heard anything from WUSTL (UR 9/29!).

Yeah, 4/15.

* September 15 First day JD applications for Fall 2011 will be accepted
* February 12 Last chance to take the LSAT for Fall 2011 consideration
* March 1 Suggested deadline for completed applications for Fall 2011 (applications will continue to be accepted after this date on a space contingency basis) It's not too late to apply!
* April 1 First tuition deposit of $300 due to reserve seat in incoming class (this deposit will be applied to tuition)
* April 15 Decisions rendered on applications through LSAC or e-mail
* May 1 First deposit may be refunded if the Admissions Office is notified in writing. After this date, all deposits become non-refundable
* **June 1 Second deposit of $500 due to reserve seat in incoming class (this deposit will be applied to tuition). Must be received by 8:00 am CT.
* August 1 Official undergraduate transcript due to the Admissions Office

Sorry, I meant complete 9/29, IR 3/3. Still a really long time to wait! Sadly I owe a seat deposit 4/1 to another school, yikes!

Good to know the first deposit is refundable, makes my life a little easier knowing I don't have to decide/risk wasting money in the next couple weeks.

Copy and paste from the WUSTL web site. Title above it reads something along the lines of, "2010-2011 Time Line."

These people at Wash U seem to run a pretty tight ship. But god damn it, why do they have to be located so far from the coasts and place so poorly on the coasts!

Put the deposit down on the other school on March 31. This is a no-brainer. Besides, WUSTL won't let you know how much scholly you'll get until a couple weeks afterward, if the current trend continues. Don't be phased by their attempts at WUSTLin' you.

No action since being put IR 3/11 then 3/14, but seeing this thread at the top gives me hope.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I have the same dates and I'm an auto-reject.

Do you think the change in IR dates are a good thing or a bad thing? I went into review two weeks ago and my IR dates have not changed since.

I have no idea. I imagine that a massive wave of waitlists and rejections will have to go out very soon. I updated from in 2/22 to 3/8 and I'm guessing that I will be waitlisted as that has been the general trend in my cycle.

My numbers are terrible and I am an autoding, and haven't heard back yet either, so I would have to agree with the massive WL (though maybe not massive in the scale of W & M) and rejections are coming.

Just out of curiosity, what is your opinion of autoding? Below both 25s?

Well, if the 25 %ile is still 161 for LSAT, I actually am above that, but .3 under the 25th for GPA is probably what's gonna do it.

Everywhere is a reach when your LSAT isn't stellar and your GPA is piss poor.

normally below both medians is a kiss of death.
