A friend IM'ed me congrats on my acceptance, but I hadn't told them about it. Apparently a list of admitted students was circulated to current WUSTL students recently.

But I think it's because I RSVP'd for the January ASW. There is a couple nice letters, an admitted students "checklist", and a pretty cool flashdrive with a bunch of videos and brochures. Pretty cool. As a local I love WUSTL. Too bad I'll probably be withdrawing :(


Woo Hoo! Hopefully I'll be getting a simliar package. I wonder if I can trade the USB for a T-shirt instead though.


I hope I get one even though I didn't sign up. The complete lack of physical letters is lame.


You know what's lame??? STILL being complete since 11/18.

I don't think I will be able to make it to one, but would like a flash drive. I might have to RSVP just to get one if that's the case......

I'm sure this post belongs more properly in the "What are my chances?" forum, but since this thread seems to attract people who know a lot about WUSTL's admissions trends, I thought I'd post it here.

LSAC complete 1/7/11 (Dec. LSAT)
LSDAS GPA: 2.7 :cry: strong upswing senior year
LSAT: 170
3+ years full-time WE, demonstrated commitment to PI, strong softs and recs, etc.
Non-URM

Any ideas 1. when I could expect a decision, 2. chances of admission/WL? I know my stats make it tough to predict - I've already been accepted to two programs for which law school predictor said I was a weak consider and a deny - but I'm also trying to have realistic expectations in light of my GPA. Before anyone says anything TOO mean, please note that my app to WUSTL was free.

Also, did anyone take the Dec. LSAT and hear back this week from WUSTL? I heard from a couple schools (acceptances - yay!) but I don't know if it's a bad sign that I didn't hear from others. Granted, I only went complete a week ago.

[Edited for typo.]

Only my real first weekend for it, but OMGYES. Just biding my time until I can reasonably hope to see something different on the status checkers.

I check the status checker twice a day even on the weekends. I need help. I'm sure I am not alone.

Far from it. I do the same thing. Idk how I'm gonna concentrate when classes start again... I'm just going to be checking them (and TLS) constantly

Received the package with the flash drive today. Disappointed there wasn't any financial info in either of the letters. Any ideas about when scholarship decisions will be sent out? Or have they already to anybody?

Everyone who asked about scholarship info, be prepared for some snarky replies...as it's mentioned on just about every page: the scholarship budget is finalized in the second week of February, so scholarship offers will come after that. :)

Thanks!

Honestly I prefer the snark over having to read through the thread to find the answer. :D
