It seems all applications are automatically reviewed for the Scholars in Law award, according to their Financial Aid website:

"Scholar in Law Awards are merit based and awarded to candidates who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievements and LSAT performance. Every applicant is automatically reviewed for scholarship consideration whether or not he or she applies for financial aid."

Haha what a tease. I would hope they wouldn't have sent that to anybody who wasn't getting any aid at all.


Oh man!

Yesterday in the NU thread one student that deferred admission from last year was saying that a few years ago, NU's business school (Kellog) admitted ~50 applicants and then the next day had to tell them it was a mistake and that they didn't, in fact, gain admission. Guhhhhh!

i doubt thats true. that would be grounds for a lawsuit if a student had a heart attack. hard to see a school making that large of a mistake.

+1, but I'm already admitted , I can admit I would like it less if I were expecting a decision still.

Heh, I enjoyed it... but I guess my thoughts may have been different if I hadn't already received my decision.

I mean the title of the email was "Seasons greetings..."

spoiler: the title of the acceptance email begins with "Congratulations"

Ditto. I did receive the UIUC holiday email with no admissions decision and nearly sht my pants bc it said to join the UIUC c/o 2014 Facebook page... NU's gobble gobble Thanksgiving turkey takes the cake, though.

at least NU's gobble gobble had some sort of humor attached to it... kinda made me like the school more whereas WUSTL's one was just plain annoying...

Yah that was a mistake. Dean Pless posted about it. The title of the email was supposed to be changed, as it was originally intended to only go out to admits.

That's good to hear, I was thinking I would be pretty annoyed if I went as far as to join that facebook page, and then get denied and have to remove myself....

I really needed good news today, as someone crashed into my car last night and didn't leave a note, so thank you WUSTL!!

Submitted 12/2, status checker still says in review.
