If you create it, I will join. That decision is going to stress the shit out of me.


If I get into a T14, I will join.


+1. Right now 114 K at WUSTL is definitely my best option, and it's not even close. Now if only I can warm to the idea of living in St. Louis...

Same two completes. I tried to look in the thread, but what is the general series of events? Had complete update three times, latest today. Is there an "in review" status too? Sorry to ask but with my 170, if I get the standard 60k offer, I can end my cycle early since it will probably be my best bet minus something crazy.

Ahem. Don't make me start bugging you again. Come visit.

On a side note, I'm having almost the opposite experience. I feel a little betrayed by the low scholarship my alma mater gave me. Which makes me feel like an asshole. Which I probably am. :|

Some of the posted suggested that there was an "under review" status but I think they were talking loosely. Most people who got in seemed to get in from one of the "application complete" updates, which makes me think it's a positive sign. Or at least a sign that a decision is close. A lot of people didn't get the decision until a number of days later tho, from their second or third update

Doubt that very much.

Also, you will probably be able to up the number in negotiations. Nevermind the fact that we're all getting in to Michigan...

Lol I hope you all do get into Mich so I can go to WUSTL...a reach for me, but the more I research, the more I'm SO glad they sent me a fee waiver (else I wouldn't have applied!)

Am I going to be at a disadvantage by not making it to an ASD? The only time I can come out is in mid-March, which I had originally planned for Michigan's ASW, but I'm pretty down with WUSTL right now. I was hoping I'd get a chance to make sure all my future classmates are going to be super cool. So everyone going to ASD, I'm counting on you to give detailed updates. If anyone else is going to be there in mid-March, let me know. I'd like to at least meet a few people.

I'm in the same situation, and when I start feeling bitter it makes me feel like a jerk as well. I love STL, but 90k at WashU was not enough, when contrasting it with my other acceptances.

[eta] When I look at my numbers, it makes sense (GPA ugh.) But when I compare the other schools I'm accepted at/have $$ at with those of the people who have full rides at Wash U, I get confused. I mean, shouldn't Wash U realize that they have a better chance at luring me away from T14 with a big scholarship, than some of the other people, when they know I already chose them once? Or maybe I've just completely outperformed my numbers elsewhere, hah.

Yeah... Neither is 75. I think wustl gave me the smallest scholly I've seen for my numbers. But I feel like an asshole saying so.

WUSTL just sent me an email waiving the app. fee and I'm not sure what to think. I'm 167/3.6, non-urm. I checked out LSN and the LSAT wall seems to have formed at 168 this year. Being below both medians, is this just an attempt to increase applications?

I was accepted with a 167 and got a 114k scholly. My gpa is slightly higher, but given that you have the fee waiver, why not apply and see what happens?

I just got the fee waiver too which kind of surprised me. I've spent $16 on worse things, so I figured why not? (I've got a 166 non-URM)

I just got the fee waiver. Below both medians, so I'm thinking this is a last minute effort to boost app #'s since app volume is way down this year..

Wow. Congrats, that's wonderful! I think I'm going to go ahead and get the app. ready to submit.

Same. I suppose it's worth the $16. Over/under on how quickly I get rejected?

Same here, I'm below both medians but I got a fee waiver today. I figured I might as well see what happens
