Current 1L at W&M checking in. Congrats to those admitted. I saw a few questions about the school on previous pages.
I haven't been through OCI yet, but I've talked to a lot of people, so if I can help out with any specific questions, feel free to shoot here or PM...


Thanks for taking the time to answer questions; your insight is very much appreciated.

1. From your point of view, how's the employment outlook at W&M? Are people faring relatively well, or is there an ominous feeling of impending doom looming over everyone?

2. I know you haven't gone through OCI, but, from what you've heard, how insular are the Virginia legal markets? (i.e. how much do employers dislike OOS students?)


1) I feel like the employment outlook is pretty positive, overall. That was one of the things I liked when I visited W&M as a 0L - there wasn't (and still isn't) a tangible sense of panic regarding jobs. It seems like most people are either fairly comfortable with or unaware of their job prospects, although that is a broad generalization from my 1L perspective.

2) I haven't had any indication of VA legal markets not liking OOS people. That might be because I have no interest in staying in VA, but the general impression is that W&M does very well and is very liked in Virginia.

Still waiting in western pa.


Florida panhandle and still waiting as well. Mail came today already too. But the post office out here is terrible. They lose stuff regularly.

Edit: I did just receive an email congratulating me on being admitted and giving access to the ASW, but the packet still isn't here.

Packet just arrived!! Scholarship too.

(I posted this on the GW Law thread by accident. I hope that I didn't trigger a panic before I had time to delete it.)

I got the email, and haven't received the packet yet. I'm not sure if they sent it to my actual house or my school address though lol.

Do status checkers get updated at different times throughout the day like the LSAT or is it safe to assume that if my status checker didn't change this morning I won't be receiving news at all today?

Congrats to those who were admitted today!

I wouldn't get too down. You have better numbers than me. So no need to panic yet.
