Can anyone with similar numbers give me a hint as far as how long it took them to get a rejection/acceptance? Also, is there a status checker? I clicked the link they emailed me and it took me to a broken link. Thanks


This should work: https://aces.law.gwu.edu/YourStatus/mem ... logon.aspx

I applied on 1/2, went complete on 1/3 and got accepted on 1/10. FWIW.

Waitlisted 1/30

3.12 GPA/166 LSAT

The email said about 50 people get in off of the waitlist...does anyone know how likely this is?

Do y'all think it's too late to apply? I was a little unsure about blowing $100 on an application that may go nowhere but the admissions stats are looking a little friendlier than I had expected. I know that it's not technically too late, but you get the idea.

This might apply to basketball but I think it's appropriate to law school applicants, "You're rejected from 100% of the schools you don't apply to"

Thanks, coach! I'll probably apply anyway.

On last cycle's LSN, it looks like there are a decent number of people who got accepted after applying Feb. 1 or later, and in fact a lot of them got decent money too. I say go for it!

ETA: Unless you end up taking my spot on the acceptance list, in which case I strongly recommend against applying. It's way too late in the cycle :twisted:

I hate that poster so much. It's a fallacy and should be on the LSAT.

I thought when you said poster you meant me (or is that actually what you meant).

Congrats on the scholarships!

They seem to have this thing about Thursday announcements. Looks like today will be another day I constantly check my inbox for a GW email.....

I was accepted on 12/17, but didnt hear anything re:scholarships in the first round last week, which I thought was a little weird since my numbers are good, and I was accepted 4 days after I applied. I'm not expecting $120k, but something would be nice =)

It's a funny story- I'm not quite sure when I was admitted lol. It was sometime last week, but GW sends these absurd admittance letters that come in a package. The package couldn't fit in my mail box, and the mailman did not want to leave it on the doorstep (I wasn't home at the time). I did not have a chance to pick up the package until Monday. I can't remember when the first delivery attempt was.
