I applied 12/23, got LSAT score January 7. Up until today, when I called Admissions, they had my status listed as "incomplete." They changed it to complete when I called, which I think means I could not possibly have been considered yet...

Folks who applied in December and got in today, were you LSAC complete in December as well? I'm trying to read tea leaves here...

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'm in the batch of Vandy applicants with DR 1/12, which seems to have been all WL WL and Rejects. The frustrating thing is they send even the WL decision via snail mail, which takes a loooong time to get to Japan. So here I'm stuck, waiting on a letter to tell me to wait. booooooo

Just moving from "complete" to "in review" would be a wonderful change (depending on the outcome)

I submitted around 11/8, been UR since 12/2 and no word since then. Last year, my LSAT was 4 points lower and I got $117K from WUSTL. I applied 1/31 and heard back around 2nd week of February.

I think the key takeaway is that the WUSTL admissions office is mysterious and unpredictable with its timing. Mysterious + unpredictable = super-annoying.

I've been IR for 20 days, and if they want to WL me, they should just do it already. 2 batches of decisions have now passed me by :?

You'd think, but I had a realization the other day that almost gave me a heart attack. It doesn't do them any more good than a 169. I'd kinda been banking on it offsetting the GPA...

Thanks for the luck, though!

TITCR. You're a suuuuuuuper splitter, so they'll probably wait on you until the review the high GPA, low(er) LSAT scores and admit you with someone they like that they need to offset LSAT wise.

You seem to have knowledge of this process. What you say makes sense.

If they were just gonna wait to pair me with a high GPA/low(er) LSATer, then why put me through the pain of IR? Seems like they could have waited.

Well they had to review you to see what your numbers were (theoretically) :-)

Complete for two months now........

"At around 2 months babies are learning how to use their neck and shoulder muscles, and soon will begin trying to raise their heads when lying down and to reach out for objects when sitting."


... there's more of a chance that a baby would have reviewed my app already.

This question may have already been answered upthread but I'm not hunting through the pages: on average, how long have people waited for a decision between submission and the acceptance/rejection email? I know other schools have kept people hanging for two months, and if WUSTL does that to me then I will be insane with anxiety by March.

The general consensus seems to be that they are reviewing 168+ LSATs first, then high GPAs, then everyone else. There doesn't seem to be anyone 168+ who hasn't gone UR and (almost :x ) all of those have already received a decision, as well.

Thank you! My LSAT is a 168 so that just made my heart sing.

Of course, my GPA is uninspiring but hopefully they will be in a really kind mood about GPAs.
