In reference to ATL, did I miss an article about WUSTL specifically or do you just mean the bad economy, high debt, no jobs stories regarding law schools in general?


No specific WUSTL article (unless I missed it too), just in general.

Apparently they WL'd lots of people with <168 yesterday, including some people with very high GPAs.

They seemingly have offered too many spots so far and have to wait until their deposit deadline to reassess. I expect they'll take lots of people off the WL

Ya, the striking thing about the wall, though, isn't the usual "those below it don't get in" but that EVERYONE above it was accepted.


Not that I'm complaining.

That's how a lot of the splitter friendly schools work (see: Emory).

I bet there eventually will be but there aren't any since they just started sending out WL's/rejects right now. Just my guess.

tbf, the 1 rejection was barry zuckercorn, who had arguably the worst cycle for a 176 ever.

Maybe Emory last year. This year Emory looked a lot more holistic. http://emory.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats ... Cycle=1011

WL'ed..

I know it is difficult to gauge, but does anyone have any idea about how many students in WUSTL's waitlist may become accepted?

2 Schools of thought. 1 is they say they are already over committed so that could hurt. The other, more likely IMO, thought is that theyve accepted alot of really high LSATs who won't go, so there may be alot of room.

There'll be a lot of movement as they try to get people w/ high GPAs who are willing to commit to the school. My guess is that they weren't that far off of a 168 median last year, so they're giving it a go by cutting the class size this year in order to make it easier.

Hm. Hangin' on with my 167 and 3.73. Submitted in November and IR changed from 3/14 to 3/29. Do people only get accepted by phonecall / only waitlisted by email?

They are cutting the class size, but I don't think this is why.

According to LSN, I am the best "reject" candidate thus far. I wonder if I screwed something up on my app.
