Meggy already promised us decisions this week. Meggy would not lie.

What kind of scores do you think'll suffice an auto-admit?

Well that works nicely for my 168 and low GPA!

According to previous years' TLS threads, applicants' status change from "Application Complete" to "In Review" before decisions are rendered. Any reason to believe this isn't the case this year? I've been at "Complete" for a couple weeks now.

Only a couple of weeks? Don't hold your breadth. It's different for everyone and every school, but you can be complete for months, and in review for months. Don't pay too much attention to the status checkers between "Complete" and a decision. It's just painful. (And if you have a 168 or above, unless you really fucked up elsewhere on your application, you are a lock for WUSTL so don't sweat it - at that point the only question is scholarship money and you won't know that until probably feb)

I don't think that happened last year. At least my status never changed from complete, even after I was accepted.

I have been "in review" since September.

This advice is very early, but I strongly suggest staying on the waitlist until June. I'm pretty sure more people came off the waitlist than that graph indicates. Many received good scholarships.

Yeah I am sure thats the case. I doubt those who were accepted after June bothered to update their LSN profile (which is where this data comes from).

Looks like we'll have to wait until next week. Good luck everyone!

I believe that last year, the first TLS-reported WUSTL e-mail was sent around 2:30PM Pacific Time on Dec. 1. So I'm giving Meggy's source the benefit of the doubt for another hour or so before I give in for the week :wink:

I just had an update as well. I went complete over a month ago and actually had an update earlier this month in addition to today's.

Me too, but this is the first time my status has updated since completion back in mid September.

No update for me since 11/14, but then again, sounds like I submitted much later than you early birds. Seems like something's rumbling, though, so cross your fingers, all!

I promise it wasn't intentional! I was told that decisions would be out this week. Looks like I was misinformed...

Hopefully Monday!!

Same here..do we think this means we are borderline and they want more information before they make a decision?

Maybe. Though in previous years it seemed that 168+ was basically an auto-admit. I think they're having problems with yield, and thus want to select students who are excited to attend the school.

Got the invite too. Curious if they sent that email to all applicants, or only borderline ones?
