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. Bump!!!

I think you'll get in. I had the same exact numbers and got in last year on Jan. 25, but I had taken the LSAT earlier.

THANKS for your reply.

Follow-up question: Admissions emailed a WUSTL alumnae whom I had listed on my application (where they ask if you have communicated with any graduates about the school). Is it a good sign that they contacted this person (i.e. am I being "considered"?) or is that just something they do with any applications mention alumni contact?

Received the USB today, without having RSVP'd to ASW, so I guess all admits do get it! Now for that scholarship info....

I think 12/28 might actually be the under review date. I think I applied on Christmas or the day after. Sorry I can't be more specific...

I went IR 12/29, so I demand a decision tomorrow. Or else I'll go down there and... beg or something.

Hahaha I'd trade WUSTL for Vandy in a second though.

Woke up this morning to find an acceptance email from WUSTL. Very happy to have my first acceptance this cycle! Applied 12/22, UR 1/7, DR 1/18.

It certainly is nice to receive this news in a timely and 21st Century fashion (I'm looking at you, Vandy...)

Holy numbers twin. I'm also stuck waiting on Vandy =\. Went complete with interview on 11/22, and not a peep.

I just want to say that, whether I go there or not, I will forever love WUSTL for being the first school to accept me. If it weren't for WUSTL I'd be pretty depressed about my cycle so far.

Being a splitter is hard. :(
