167/3.4.

I had a lot of friends go premed at WUSTL. I have always and only heard topshelf things about the school and its students. Hopefully I can pull an acceptance.

You haven't spent much time on TLS then. :lol:

But yes, WUSTL is awesome (especially for undergrad/med school people... it is a top notch campus and school). I am a current law student and really like it so far. If you or anybody else has any questions about the school, feel free to ask myself or any of the other WUSTL students on TLS (there are many of us on here). I've posted this a few times already, but I know we've probably had some newcomers to this thread since I last checked in.

Wow. 2 months IR is crazy. Can't imagine being so patient!


Actually, I just checked again and it's not even IR. It's still COMPLETE. for TWO MONTHS. Should I email them?

Oo. It still sucks but I can understand being complete for 2 months more than I can wrap my mind around IR for 2 months. I guess if other Nov people are all under review, then I might email them. Otherwise, they clearly have your app and it is still early in the cycle so I wouldn't want to annoy them.

I think I consider myself a reverse splitter...or just median GPA and low LSAT.

But opps, I just sent an email to ask. Hope they dun find me too annoying :?

Edit: just got their reply 5 minutes after I sent it out!

Since we do not have rolling admissions, there is no definite timeframe as to when you will hear a decision. However, the committee is reviewing files and will release your decision as soon as possible.

It doesn't seem to answer my question though, my question is whether my file is being reviewed when my status doesn't suggest so :S

I would think the answer is no. The committee is reviewing files but if your status doesn't say under review then they haven't begun reviewing it yet.
My guess is they do some sort of #s filter and review auto-admit files first...

ahh that makes sense..since they don't follow rolling admission they probably have other ways of deciding which files to be reviewed first. oh well! I will stop logging into my status checker for a while then just to avoid disappointment

The checker just says "decision made" -- you don't know if it's in/wl/ding until you get the email.

From the acceptance e-mail:

"Based on your excellent record, the Scholarship Committee is considering your file for one of our Scholars in Law Awards."

I'm assuming this means they're still deciding on a lot of scholarships?

They're probably still deciding on most of them since scholarship budget doesn't come out until February. :wink:
