edit: Also, for those already accepted, did your status date ever change after the initial "Application Complete" status change?



my status updated to the current date over the weekend, but no sign of anything in mailings...then got an email on tuesday saying i was in! and the mailings updated to the day on the weekend that i noticed the initial date change. so could be good news coming your way!

No offense, but these posts do the exact opposite for me and others in our situation than promote hope lol

There are individuals with better numbers who have been complete forever watching people with worse numbers who applied later keep getting acceptances

That combined with fact W&M only hands out acceptances until about Feb. means that there is obviously something in our apps that they don't like for some reason

Congrats though!

Or they are assuming you're overqualified and are hoping you get an acceptance elsewhere and withdraw so they can yield pump.

Scholarship offer came today for $12,000/year out of state (so tuition would be $20,000). Anyone know if W&M negotiates scholarship? I may have a bunch of big offers that I can leverage... I would be open to paying $20k/year at W&M but it would be tough...

App complete on the 8th and accepted on the 11th. Do scholarship offers come in the admissions packets?

Lol, I'm not in that range either (167/ 3.44)... Obvious they liked the apps of those with lesser numbers more / I'm waitlisted

The only slight hope I have is I was completely honest (might have been a mistake) and listed the 16 schools I applied to... maybe that'll make them think about not accepting me early

Don't be nervous! But there has been evidence in this thread of a quick turnaround. I went complete 2 days ago and they sent my admit package yesterday.

Don't mean to knock you off your bubble but I also listed the schools and that didn't change anything for me. I do have a lower LSAT score than you but a higher GPA. So I don't really know how they're making their decisions.

I do think, that my PS and DS and Resume were all really solid though so perhaps that's played a part in the way my cycle's been going so far.

Lol, no bubble here... I was stating I'm obviously a WL most of time. Yea there have been those with lower splits than both of mine in fairly quickly. It happens, sometimes schools either like or don't like your story.

Already happened to me with schools ranked the same (GW rejection / Minn in with scholly)

I was really interested in W&M though

I applied 11/20 and I received this request on 12/7 via email. It said the Dean had reviewed my application and she believes that knowledge of my Fall 2011 grades would be desirable prior to making a decision. Luckily for me I got a 3.75 this semester. I have pretty good extra-curricular record and my school is known in the south for being particularly rigorous (Georgia Tech)

UGH! I can't believe they waitlisted you. I'm so mad as I'm starting to see people get waitlisted all over the place. I remember how pissed I was when UVA waitlisted me.

Did anyone else get a call from a current William & Mary student? I got one today. Thought that was a really nice gesture.
