Yea, I had about a paragraph in my PS for WUSTL... I just took it out and put it in there, so hope that wasn't supposed to be a huge Why X essay lol

i did the same lol

Yeah, I took the instructions too narrowly and thought "well, there's not a special reason I like WUSTL - I'm not from St. Louis, it's just a good school. Seems dumb to write "because WUSTL provides a quality education.""

Realized after I submitted that it could be interpreted as:
--ImageRemoved--
"lol, don't care enough to write anything here".

WUSTL: you updated the date of numerous people today and then accepted exactly one of those people. What gives?

Nah you're fine. I can't even imagine how a school could:
1. Do that.
2. Actually reverse it without looking like total idiots.

Really? I hadn't heard that before. I would think the school would sooner let someone admitted by mistake stay admitted than deal with the fallout.

Maybe UMiami just pulled off one of the better timed trolls I've seen. :lol: (jk)

I'm not too worried. According to LSN, I should be in anyway. I'm just surprised that I am the only one to get an email after the completion date change.

I knew that would be brought up! You can see how excited I am by looking at my profile and LSN- I ran and changed both to accepted right away!

Thanks everyone for the congrats! It's only a little after 4 WUSTL time, btw :) I'm hoping for you all!

Oh WUSTL, why do you torture us so?

Alas, maybe next week.

Submitted mid-september. Complete 10/04. And I got the status change on 12/2.

I'm one point below the LSAT median. With the decrease in LSATs administered and, assumedly, in applications, is it realistic for them to hold their median at 168?

I don't know about realistic, but it's certainly possible. One of the easiest ways for it to happen would be if all of the marginal GPA 168s that were splitting between WUSTL and UIUC choose WUSTL after the UIUC scandal.
