Good luck to all of you!


When was your application complete?


First complete after I submitted around 11/11.

Next sign of movement was another complete at 12/03.

Acceptance 12/04 via email + status checker. letter should get here within 5-7 business days.

no mention of scholly yet, which is obviously a serious consideration.

@Oh El did you ever go from complete to under review? Or was it the date that only updated?

What do you mean they are getting slaughtered?

OCI isn't doing very well. And in DC, where there are two T-20 schools plus UVA in close proximity, American is getting shut out HARD. And they're still charging as much as those schools.


This is what I was referring to.

Think less than 4/10 grads

I take it you guys are not EDs? Can I get some submission dates and stats? I was fast out of the gate and feel like I should be hearing back.

Got my acceptance email this afternoon (3.19/164), app was submitted 11/14. Only way I'm attending is if they throw some serious, serious cash my way (which, according to LSN, it looks they don't do for hardly anyone).

I am a 1L evening division student at WCL, and I work full-time during the day at a government agency. I'd be happy to field any questions you may have about the school (especially those considering part-time as an option).

Good luck with the app cycle.
