Congrats to all accepted!

I'm really starting to wonder what's wrong with my 11/2 completed app though :( lol

If you don't mind my asking, have you decided on another school?


I haven't decided yet and I'm still waiting to hear back from a couple schools, but I decided that I would not go to W&M over my other options (NYU, UVA, GULC, and GW). And honestly, W&M only offered $8k/year, so that was not enough of an incentive for me to pass up the T14s. Also, I've decided I want to be in a city for the networking and externship opportunities, and my spouse is going to stay in DC regardless of where I matriculate, so Georgetown & GW have that going for them.

tl;dr version: No, but probably NYU or Georgetown.

They are pretty generous. And considering you are in at GULC and Michigan I assume your numbers are good enough to get some substantial money

Sounds like GULC is a good fit for you. If you got in at NYU, I'm sure GULC will treat you right. I can't believe you only got $8k at W&M!

I just got my packet in the mail — $8k per year, and with my craptastic GPA I'm flattered!

Stupid question ahoy: Is it too late to apply for a grad fellowship after admission? I mean they're not something you can pick up in 2 or 3L, or are they?

When they send the scholarship info do they say it as per/year or overall?

My admission packet got send to my parents and just want to verify the amount is per year.

Thanks.

I'm a super-splitter, so it was probably easy for them to underestimate where I'd be accepted. I hope you're right about GULC :)

Same here. I went complete in November and haven't heard a peep yet. Expecting to get dinged but one can hope.

Is it too late in the cycle to apply? I have been considering it for a while. I have a fee waiver and the more I look into it, the more I like the school. Any thoughts?

Do it. W&M says they have a partial rolling admission so you wouldn't be too disadvantaged applying late in the game. Also, whats the damage? $16 report fee?

I don't think it's too late. I just applied last Saturday. Similar logic as above.

I feel like I may be a long shot any ways. My GPA is at about the 75% but my LSAT is well below the medium. The most comparable school I applied to, Notre Dame, put me on the waitlist.

Hey y'all W&M is on CNN right now if you didn't know. I went here undergrad but prolly gonna end up at Cornell (W&M didn't offer enough cash). The area is beautiful and it's probably the perfect environment for a serious law student. If anybody has any questions about the burg or student life feel free to ask!

Just withdrew late yesterday also after being offered 8k/yr way back in November. I genuinely hope some of you who really want to go here will be given my spot and money! Best of luck to you all! :)

Does anyone know about the need-based scholarships that William and Mary offers? I see it on their site but I can't find much information on it. :?:

They are sort of hazy on that.. the website says
(6) Apply for Need-Based Financial Aid
Applicants for need-based scholarships and/or educational loans must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) . The recommended deadline is February 15. The FAFSA Title IV code for William & Mary is 003705. All admitted applicants are automatically considered for merit scholarships awarded by the Law School based on the information submitted to complete the application for admission. No additional information is required.

I think they are essentially calling FAFSA a need-based "scholarship".. everyone is considered for the Merit Scholarships, and from what I have heard that's what the school gives out; so I'd expect you should hold out hope for that more
