Anyone who was admitted in early January ever receive an acceptance package in the mail?

Also are people still receiving offers for scholarships. I think my numbers are a tad low for money, but still hoping nonetheless. :P

Just sent in a LOCI after being wait listed about two weeks ago. If GW wants to let me in before April, its my first choice and I'm happy to send in the deposit soon...

In slightly more diplomatic language, yes.

Looking at the numbers of all the recent WL--> Accepted posters, it seems almost as though GWU got a little too trigger happy on admitting high LSAT applicants and are now retroactively trying to fix their GPA medians.

If that's true, then I'm sunk :-( Super-duper splitter, still waiting.

how long does it normally take between getting in via email and being able to access the ASW?

also, it seems the standard wait time to hear about potential $$ is a couple weeks? Is this right?

I was waitlisted early January, so these WL acceptances give me hope!! I don't have a strong GPA or LSAT but at least the WL is being cut down with all these recent acceptances! Praying for the best >.< Maybe I'll be more aggressive with my tactics lol

Anyone know if other schools are doing this??

Wow man, congratulations! Mind sharing your numbers? The theory is they're picking people to boost their GPA....

Well based on my acceptance that would be the case. 3.9 / 165

So I'm screwed! Lol unless they hold off on WLing more students. I feel like waiting for decisions is a scary exercise in game theory, both trying to figure out how schools are playing and how applicants will respond to their slew of decisions....

In all honesty, congrats to all the recent admits! I really hope I can join you, be it this month or in April or May!

Same here, I have a 3.97, 164. I got wait-listed 1/11/13. Then got in yesterday via email.

Hopefully this recent trend bodes well for me. I sent in a strong LOCI yesterday and while my GPA isn't overwhelming, its a strong 3.6 from two really well-regarded schools. Here's hoping that the 164 is enough for GW to relent.
