Tried both the checker and AS, no luck with either. I read somewhere that they usually only take 40-50 ED decisions, and I think we're probably getting close to that.

don't use that as your predictor one way or the other. this depends on the quality of the applicants. it's like saying the lakers normally win 70 percent of their games, but the betting odds would be very different if they played the clippers than if they played the spurs.

No reason to believe the Lakers' schedule is any different this year than the last 2 or 3, especially when their team's talent is the same as ever and the teams they are playing are not likely in the course of one year to have all signed some kind of heretofore unknown and unprecedented superstars OR to have dumped their rosters and signed high school players.

Gets kind of twisted up when I'm calling a school the Lakers and students other teams, but I tried

Sorry to interrupt the analogies, but does anyone know when scholarship info came out last year. Im having difficulty finding good info on LSN. Also, when is ASW?

Is it useful to submit a letter of interest or something like that while they consider you for scholarships?

This is going to sound really ignorant, but is this "status checker" everyone keeps talking about just on the LSAC website? Because I can't find the words status checker anywhere...

You should be :evil: They come out in late February, that's when everyone who had gotten in up to that point got their offers. People who got in like a week or two before they came out had to wait longer IIRC.

Been IR since yesterday AM :shock:

In scrolling ITT it looks like the time IR can vary from one day (? I wish) to over a month. Any thoughts? I'm getting anxious, but aren't we all I guess...

FWIW 168/3.44 (after seeing all the LSAT discussion here)

I'd feel good if I were you. I got an acceptance email Friday with similar numbers (168/3.35). I obviously don't know how our essays or soft factors compare, but I hope my numbers are comforting.

Also, the WUSTL Admissions blog lists the possible status options. It appears as though it stays as "In Review" until the seat deposit is paid (then it changes to "Seat Reserved/First Deposit"), in case anyone was curious. Here's the link:

Oh wow, so it stays in review, even after you've been admitted?! :O

Wow, unless they just didn't list "ACCEPTED!" status because it would be too obvious?

I didn't call Admissions to verify, but that seems to be the case based on the blog post. And mine still says "In Review" today, even though I got the acceptance email Friday.

It's funny, I wasn't particularly excited about WUSTL before, but now that they are the first ones to get back to me (and super-fast), and after watching the videos somebody posted a link to, I'm actually pretty excited. There are still other schools I hope to get into, but I would not be at all disappointed if I end up at WUSTL. Forest Park seems pretty sweet.

Interesting, well I guess I'll just keep an even closer eye on my e-mail, although I have been in review since 11/17, so I'm probably going to get dinged or WL'd, lol.

For anyone that doesn't actually click through to the blog post, I double-checked, and it explicitly says that admissions decisions ARE NOT posted on the status check page. Here's the quote:

"It is our school policy not to post final decisions on the Washington University School of Law status check page. All decisions are sent via e-mail." So it seems there's no need to check the status page once it says "In Review."

This is based on past reviews of LSN and the decision date graph. But the good news for you is that you have the magic LSAT which many on hear suspect WUSTL is gunning to make their new median. Good luck and I hope you hear soon!

Also thank you narayan for checking out that blog, now I can avoid my status checking urges :D (or at least try to)

This is true. They will e-mail you with an acceptance decision (I don't know about rejections/waitlists). Your status checker will still say "In Review" even after you've been accepted... this is because you're still under consideration for scholarship $$$.
