Shoot, I've been in review since 8/24. I'm starting to wonder if they lost my app. Just reject me already if you must!

Application in 11/15, Complete 11/27, Admitted on status check today - 11/28

First admit - feels pretty good considering William & Mary was the LAST school to admit me for undergrad - calling to tell me I was off the waitlist in mid-June, about 2 months before the start of Freshman orientation.

Hark upon the gale, folks. Sounds like it's a busy day in Williamsburg.

Congrats on the admit! Can you explain this to us non-W&M alumni? :lol:

That's the t-shirt design for the latest Homecoming - a picture of W&M's much-beloved College President - Taylor Reveley - who besides being former Dean of the Law School is a brilliant lawyer (Order of the Coif at UVA), really nice guy, and has an awesome Central Virginian accent. He still teaches at the law school and would likely personally get to know any law student who cares to get to know him.

"Hark upon the gale" is a general rallying cry for William & Mary - it comes from the "Alma Mater" - the College's song which is loudly sung by occasionally-sober students in celebratory occasions:

I haven't done all my homework on the law school yet, but I can highly recommend William & Mary as a great community with a strong emphasis on academics while still being fun. Williamsburg is a bit sleepy, but it's close to Richmond and Hampton Roads, and the students do a great job keeping the town from being totally boring. The administration truly puts the students first and I would imagine that extends to the law school.

Seriously my only complaint about undergrad would be the crappy (just totally awful) on-campus food. Lots of great restaurants in Williamsburg though!

Checking in! Just got accepted today. Very excited considering William & Mary was one of my top choices for undergrad.

Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear!

Ditto. Gotta log into status checker to find out an update. And it does say "admit packet mailed" so hopefully it really was put in the mail today and will come in a few days.

Also very eager to find out if there's money coming from Williamsburg. Hope they send it to my "current address" as opposed to my "permanent address" so I don't need to drive 2 hours to open it.

Last time I was right in predicting when you'd get in to one of the other schools (UF?), so this time I'm predicting you'll be in on Friday. 8)

Good stuff everybody. Would you guys mind posting your stats if you got in? Interested to see if there's any pattern to how they're getting to each application?

Above 75th for GPA, at 75th for LSAT. Don't remember if I posted my stats before, sorry if it's a double.

Thanks. I'm 164 3.5 but have been in review for 2/3 weeks. Seems they've been doing all the 168's and above. At least that seems to be the trend on LSN.
