Submitted 10/15
Went complete 11/8
Admitted here via email/status checker on 12/6

No mention of scholarship, but that's gonna be an important factor.

I was reading last year's c/o thread and it looks like they don't release any scholarship info until March?
That's disappointing.

A few questions: Are you full time or part time admit? are you interested in government sector/public interest jobs (if so look into applying for the PIPS scholarship)? Are you above the median for both LSAT and GPA (if not then don't count on any scholarship before coming to WCL).

Full time
yes/yes/yes
no, so that's somewhat disappointing

I got the acceptance letter in the mail today. It has all the same information as the email/admitted students page, but it comes with a magnet. No scholarship info :(

Your complete date changed? Were you complete before, and if so, when?

Yes, my complete date changed. It was complete on 12/4, and then the date changed to 12/13 but the status did not change. No change in the status or date as of this morning.

Accepted today, 158/3.73. First decision I have received for the cycle, money will be a factor but I'm ecstatic. Congrats to the other admits!

Thanks! I got one from Mich & one from Vandy over the past two weeks too but it's so late in the cycle that I can almost guarantee it's for an auto-ding.

What's your secret?



Bribes, obviously. Honestly though, I have no idea. Wasn't exactly thrilled at the prospect of writing a Why Mich? statement during finals week though lol.

In. GPA above the 25th, LSAT at the 75th. Scholarship money will be important.

Fee waiver from Duke? That's awesome! Good luck


I got one from Duke early on too. I am 163/3.66, so far from Duke's priority range. Do you think they sent those out to game the stats or with some legit intentions?

I got a fee waiver from Duke before apps were open. I applied ED and was waitlisted. I am a 163/3.9x. It is only 20 bucks to apply with the waiver so apply - you never know!
