Of over 10 schools, they were the second to offer me a decision on my application, and they've been nothing but timely and straightforward regarding things like merit aid.


+1. they were my first acceptance and offer of aid. within a week of becoming complete


I imagine numbers have a lot to do with it.


If you have two high numbers, they're responsive. If not, I think they shove you to the bottom of the pile until they have nothing better. At least that's my perception.

Pretty much :|

Probably nothing will come out today. Unless they have some staffs working over night like Emory does - they rejected me via email around 11pm.

I have to say, that room with all of John Marshall's personal books was nerd heaven.

For what it's worth, admissions said that they've actually had an increase in applications this cycle, so maybe that's why it's taking them so long.

Regardless, hopefully y'all hear this week!

I'm feeling for everyone on here waiting for a decision...I am in the same boat waiting on some other schools. Hello EMORY!!!

In W&M's defense, they were quick to make a decision on my app, and with my numbers, I wasn't even expecting to get in, no less scholarship money. Anyone who is seriously considering this school, I think will be happy they waited. I have only been impressed with them so far.

I'm still quite concerned about their employment numbers, given that 21% of their graduating class finds employment at a WM U funded job. Anyone care to speak to this?

Rejected over email just now.

Honestly, very much okay with this. In this twisted world of apps I kind of hoped I'd get rejected just cause I didn't want to be in a position to even start a W&L Vs. W&M debate combined with the sheer lack of excitement I had for the school in general.

Anyhow, good luck to all the rest!!

And waitlisted via email, just now. 165 LSAT, 3.95 gpa for the last two years, but 2.4 overall. A lot of very strong softs.

And no change on status checker.

Well seeing as I have been waitlisted, I assume that I would come off without a scholarship.

I would have invested maybe 10-15k in tuition a year to attend - but at instate or sticker prices I wouldn't consider it anyhow.

Makes sense. I really just didnt want to start a debate if to go to W&L or W&M and I'm honesty not excited about the school. It was a pretty blah experience
