Mine says that too. I think it just says that after you go complete

GPA: 3.57

I don't know about scholarships or the like yet. Waiting for my packet. I didn't do any fellowship essays.


Congrats! You went complete 2 days ago and were accepted today? Jealous over here.

I was accepted today! Just got the email :D

Where was information about an extra essay for a fellowship? If it was on the application I'm sure I did it, but I have worked on sooooo many applications I don't remember doing one for William & Mary!



Congrats on the acceptance!

One of the tabs you had to fill out on the applications mentioned fellowships and where you added the personal statement had tabs to upload separate essays for the different fellowships.

Oh yeah -- duh, that's right. I have sent in so many applications, it's almost mind-numbing and I forget haha

Thanks!

So is it my understanding that if they don't notify you of acceptance right away, then you are going to be held until more applications come in. Is that correct?

Got in a few days ago!

Applied 10/24
Completed 10/31
Admitted 11/08

I really would like to go here. I am just hoping for some scholarships since I am out of state: LSAT: 163, GPA: 3.98, with strong softs.

Went under review on Thursday... nervous! It's my understanding that if I'm admitted I should find out about it by like Friday or so, hopefully? That would be so nice to get into one of my reach schools this early... *fingers crossed*

numbers? I am trying to figure out if your application being under review quickly means you are direct admits/dings.

Where did it state that you were under review?? Mine doesn't have a status option, just a disclaimer at the top of the page saying that decisions will be made by April...

Just heard back from W&M! Only took 9 days from application sent to acceptance - thought it would take at least until december.

Does anyone know anything about the Graduate Fellowship? I'm OOS and they offered in-state tuition, 18K scholarship, and 4k in stipend for work. I guess it's like a work study??

I don't have your numbers. LSAT is higher so I think this is the reason I am not being reviewed.

22k on top of in state tuition? That is close to free ride. Congrats!!

status changed to "in review process".
is there anecdotal info about such a quick turnaround from complete to review?

Did anyone else get a personal call from the Dean this weekend??

I am dying to get my official admissions packet in the mail! I was expecting it yesterday, but I guess the postal employees had Monday off for Veteran's Day (even though it was really Sunday). She said to be on the lookout for it, and I was wondering if that meant anything

I got a call this Sunday. It was very nice, and she happened to know my scholarship offer too.

Would be interested to know the answer to this also. When/how do admits get their scholarship offers?
