They sent an e-mail to met last week saying that the Fin Aid committee is going to review applicants for merit aid starting the first week of February

WL via email. Never been so happy to be not accepted... Expected a rejection. Woo!

Edit: Also, does anyone know if WL means if accepted you pay the sticker price? Cause that would be not ideal...

Hi all,
RD waitlisted today by email, 1/24/2012 and application completed on 1/9/2012 (3.85/163; no update on the online status checker). Not too surprised considering the low LSAT and the fact that I'm from a no-name tiny university. But it's better than being rejected, so I'll be riding this one out until the end. Congrats to all who have been accepted already!

Also, is it just me or did GW send me an ultra fast decision? It literally took two weeks.

particularly for a wait list, seems odd that they would give a quick decision to someone who wasn't auto accept or auto decline. oh well, this is probably going to be an interesting cycle in the end. early numbers are showing that apps are way down.


My theory: GW admissions randomly picks files to review and decide upon out of a very large top hat. That is the only plausible explanation for my uber-luck.
