Here's a pretty interesting and fair analysis of some of the changes that A-B underwent following the InBev merger:
http://www.stltoday.com/business/local/ ... 662ae.html


The article is about a year old, but everything in it is still relevant. And for the record, the two microbreweries mentioned--Schlafly and Urban Chestnut--are both outstanding. Schlafly is bigger and has been around longer (since 1991). They make incredible craft beer with a lot of variety. Urban Chestnut is newer to the scene (maybe 2010 or 2011), but their product is amazing and is already getting a good reputation.

Sorry for the ramble about local issues and craft beer. Back to Wash U Law-related (or WUSTL Law) discussions!

The beer situation is acutely relevant. No apology needed, dude.

I sincerely doubt it. Although if you actually did TFA and came back in a later cycle you would be a more attractive candidate.

I toured Shlafly when I was visiting. It's awesome, informative, and free

When did you guys go complete? My friend just went complete last Friday and also got an update today. Surely she can't expect news this quickly, can she?

My cycle, I applied very late January, and heard back in less than a week. It's possible.

Yes, this. May we have a ballpark idea of what they were, kind sir or madam?

He was 3.8/169 and ended up with a full ride (2010-11). FWIW I also was accepted about 1 week after applying last year in Feb.

Yeah makes sense then. According to LSN anyone who applied after the first week of Jan hasn't heard back yet.

I wonder if this includes Stella Artois.

Haha it does! I had two at the reception. 8)

Did they have the new Budweiser Black Crown they were pimping during the Superbowl? I'm kinda curious!

My status is still "complete" but the status date is now 2/5. Is that an update?
Sorry to be a dumb.

Should I expect a super long wait with wash u? Applied 12/20 complete 1/15. No word since. I heard they keep below median URM hanging for a while until they see the class makeup. True?

You're good. I was accepted a month ago and mine still says "complete". I'm not exactly sure the date is indicative of anything concrete, just a good sign that you've got movement.

I was curious because Michigan's date updates near daily, and at the top of the WUSTL status checker it says, " Over time, you may notice that the current status date will change even though your current status does not. These changes are not associated with the Committee’s decision."
