Yeah. All the emails came from hfanti@wm.edu

Subject lines:
Received:"William & Mary Law School Application Received" (1/3)
Status checker: "William & Mary Applicant Status Online" (1/3)
Complete: "William & Mary Application is Complete" (1/8)
Accepted: "You Have Been Admitted to William & Mary Law School" (1/11)

No scholarship information, just a generic admitted student website access code. Also said I'd be getting the complete packet in the mail.

Also, I had not logged into my status checker prior to today, but it looks like the decision was posted there yesterday before the email was sent this morning:

Status: File is Complete and in Review Process
Current Status Date: 1/8/2013
Decision Status: Congratulations! You Have Been Admitted!
Decision Status Date: 1/10/2013

I feel like W&M and I are in a staredown competition to see who blinks first (me). I've been complete and under review since 8/24 with absolutely no movement whatsoever on my app.

Finally managed to talk to the W&M alum who is an associate at Skadden last night. He was really very open and honest about the school, even if he was speaking from the perspective of someone who was top 10% and came out with the best possible employment scenario. He indicated that he'd probably be contacting a few other potential students, not just those of us in NYC, so some of you all may get an email as well. He was also kind enough to put me in touch with another Skadden associate who graduated from W&M last year so that I could get a more current opinion of the school and the job market.

Got acceptance letter w/scholarship info at school mailbox today, saw I was accepted via email last week. W&M was just a random app for me but the 33k per year scholarship has made me look into it more. Specifically, they gave me a 'fellowship' thing that made up for the difference between out of state and instate tuition plus 4k stipend, and then a 20k scholarship on top of that. I kind of doubt I'll attend but hopefully this info can help people who are curious (GPA and LSAT info in my profile).

In via status checker at 4pm today. Pretty exciting. Now the wait for the packet. Has it been confirmed that scholly offers come with the acceptance packet?

Also: Mad fast turnaround. Sent the app on January 3rd.

Excellent. Can't wait for that packet! I'm hoping they offer 23k/year like they did raji because we have the exact same numbers and major.

I applied in early December. Had to wait on my second LSAT score.

Went into review 11/6 and was admitted via status checker today. 162/3.9

For those who had a long wait, did the school request more info from you (i.e. grades from the fall semester) prior to your decision or wait? My app was held for fall grades and I received my decision about a week after LSAC sent those grades along. I suppose some had to wait for a December LSAT but my app did not.

I got the snail mail packet today with the $20k scholarship, but none of your other goodies.
