Same boat. Probably will withdrew.

The thing that really kills me is that they give a timeline on their website. I know it's approximate, but when someone sets a deadline for themselves I feel as though they should stick to it.

Congrats to the new admits though! :)

Has anyone who's gotten their acceptance/scholarship gotten anything to accept their seat/submit deposit?? Beginning to question whether I'm really in...

If it's the same as past years UW doesn't have a seat deposit so they're a bit less communicative than other schools. I believe all you do is commit to coming, although it's the same as other schools insofar as you can hold multiple seats while you continue to negotiate scholarships and withdraw your place in the class if you decide to go elsewhere.

Good to know, I'm pretty much 100% sure I'm going to Madison, I just couldn't figure out why they weren't asking me for money.

I was in a long time ago, but recently got an email indicating scholarship for $12,000 a year ($36,000 total). We are not supposed to tell. But you don't know who I am... Shhhhhhhhhhhhh :lol:

Still "In Review" since 12/27. I'm starting to think that probably is not a good thing...

They're still accepting applications, so you're probably ok.

Quite hard. WI is known for being an absolute stickler about this and your tuition status is set by your first year, they don't allow you to become a resident for years 2 and 3. This is true across the entire UW system, not just the law school.

Still stuck at 12/27. Expecting a WL or Ding, especially after the decisions yesterday. I'm at the point where I wish they would just tell me either way and not keep drawing it out. :(

Edit: I'm in-state which is why I am holding out any hope at all.

Not sure if this is new or if this is was always the case and the date is comparable to 2nd deposits for other schools, but there is a $500 deposit this year. From an email today:

Notification Deadline for the Fall 2013 First-year Class:
In the next few weeks, we will send you an e-mail containing a link to our admitted student response webpage. On this page you will be asked to indicate whether you will be accepting our offer of admission, and if so, whether you intend to enroll as a full-time or part-time student. We ask that when you receive the e-mail with the response link that you submit your decision no later than Monday, April 15, 2013. In the event that you are still unsure of your decision by April 15, please indicate that you are uncertain on the online form. An "uncertain" response from you will hold a space for you in the class temporarily. We will also be requiring a $500 non-refundable enrollment deposit which will be credited to your fall semester tuition bill. The $500 non-refundable enrollment deposit is due on or before May 15, 2013. If you have already notified us that you will be attending in the fall, we still ask that you complete the online form. If we do not have your reply by April 15, we will assume you are not coming, and will cancel your acceptance. There is no need to contact the Admissions Office with your decision now. We ask that you wait until you receive the e-mail with the admitted student response link before informing us of your decision to enroll. We thank you in advance for your attention to our time-frame.

I was pretty excited to see how late in the year we'll be starting, I have seen several schools that start much earlier.

In. Still waiting on UNC (which is my top choice due to tuition price- I'm in-state). Unless I get a scholarship here.

File Complete: 2/01/13
Accepted: 3/04/13

Good luck to everyone!
